  1. Just out of curiosity... do you already have time to sleep? Sometimes I wonder if you are not an alien. Well, now seriously, I just wanted to tell you that all this information is appreciated. It is sure to be valuable to some. Frankly, I don't understand practically anything. It happens to me like when I go to a museum and see a beautiful painting, I don't have the ability to paint it, but I recognize the merit of whoever did it.
  2. This was a real case, in a kingdom hall. He was going to start the circuit overseer's talk. A little boy approached to say something to him and he, complacent, did as he attended, smiled and soon he got on the platform for his talk. The overseer was surprised to see the faces of those seated in the front rows. They made gestures and signs with their faces, surreptitiously. In the end, he discovered the problem: he was wearing his trouser fly open. The little one, as "he was at the right height" realized the problem, which no one else did. But, as I said before, the overseer ignored h
  3. Awesome. I really appreciate all your effort by putting your knowledge at our disposal. In spite of the risk to be misunderstood, I'm always learning a lot of you. Yes, yes, I hear some ones saying "you're a man's follower..."
  4. *** it-1 p. 134 Appointed Times of the Nations *** In the light of these facts “the tree” is seen to represent, beyond and above its application to Nebuchadnezzar, world sovereignty or domination by God’s arrangement. *** w74 3/15 p. 164 Bible Timetables Pinpoint Our Day *** Accordingly, what befell Nebuchadnezzar in fulfillment of his dream was evidently prophetic of something that pointed to God’s bestowing rulership on the “lowliest one of mankind.” We know that, in God’s due time, he did select Jesus Christ to receive such rulership *** go chap. 5 p
  5. I believe, @AlanF , that you incur the usual problem of the historical-cultural gap between the words of Jesus and our current context. Your interpretation: “the witnesses teach prophecies / predictions about the ‘coming ’ that have turned out to be false. Jesus says: don't follow them. And -according your view- that phrase means something like 'don't get involved with that religion, because it's false. Don't become a follower of them -the witnesses- ’" But let's look at Jesus' statements, in context: (Matthew 24:26). . .Therefore, if people say to you, ‘Look! He is in the wi
  6. Of course, I can only say that I fully agree with @JW Insider's words on this 1914 matter. This was a real conversation a few months ago, with a married couple studying the Bible with my wife and me. In the first chapters of the book "Teach": ME: "so we are now very close to the end, as indicated in the paragraphs, the sign, etc." STUDENT: “I have witness in my family. You are always with the same thing, there is little time left. I've been hearing that since I was a child, and I don't like you saying things you don't know for sure " ME: “Well, you're right, actually Jesus
  7. I also share your love regarding your comments about the Egyptian New Chronology. I suppose you refers David Rohl. I also enjoy the works of the film maker Tim Mahoney.
  8. Dear sister @Arauna Regardless of whether you are right about the point you make, I just want to make you see that in recent days I have seen that you have referred to @JW Insider, among other mentions such as: Proud Blind Close to apostates in his ideas... Don't you think it's very hard?
  9. I think that all this of the generation could have, in fact, a very simple explanation: Jesus was only referring to the living people in his day, and that they would see the destruction of Jerusalem in 70. What complicates it "a little" is the intersection between the prediction of the destruction of Jerusalem and the prediction of His return, of His parousia. The apostles, in their ignorance, MIXED both issues. So Jesus' response could lead us to MIX the fulfillments. Even more complicated if we look for TYPES and antitype between the first and second fulfillment ... What I see
  10. Perhaps a possible explanation for the Franz / Furuli similarities is that both situations, the time of Franz and the present, share the same problems. I see a tension, an opposite force, between wanting to have a united, harmonious organization and allowing greater freedom of conscience and thought. Both extremes I think are bad. Can you imagine going to a congregation that believes in the trinity, or in hell fire? At the other extreme, it is a shame it is troublesome to wear a beard, not to wear a tie and that sort of thing.
  11. I see, in my opinion, that the parables of the slave/ steward could have three senses: 1 According to the Bible, in a sense I am a steward, or supervisor of my family. I have to take care of it, feed it and take care of it. 2 (1 Timothy 5:17) "Let the elders who preside in a fine way ..." shows that in each congregation there must be some who supervises and cares for the rest of the congregation: a steward group of elders. 3 In the final age it would be neccesary a global stewardship The analysis of the next passage alone yields much information on this matter, the admi
  12. Regarding to the illustration of the "faithful slave" (Mt 24) or "faithful steward" (Lu 12) we find a quote that I think is pertinent in the letter of Ignatius to the Ephesians VI:
      Hello guest!
    CHAPTER VI. Now the more any one sees the bishop keeping silence, the more ought he to revere him. For we ought to receiv
  13. I'm sick of this religion, why don't I give up? (Revelation 3: 1-4) 1 ‘I know your deeds, I am fully convinced that the Master knows what is happening within our religion, as he knew what was happening in Sardis. "that you have the name that you are alive, but you are dead" I don't think at all that my religion is that bad 2 ... I have not found your works fully performed before my God. Yes, I agree, there are things, many things, that I do not like about my religion, nor about the GB 4 ‘Nevertheless, you do have a few individuals in Sardis And here is the ma
  14. The question I raise has more substance: As far as I know, no brother who works as a nurse or doctor and who administers blood sporadically and following the instructions of a superior has to face any judicial committee. Along the same lines, no one who sells products with blood - or tobacco - from time to time in a supermarket that is not of his property, necessarily loses the status of "good reputation" or of being a "good example". The nuances that can emerge from the two examples I just cited are innumerable. But Furuli mentions a certain letter where there is no nuance: acc
