  1. Newcastle Herald senior journalist, Joanne McCarthy. Catholic, Anglican, Uniting and some others with WT-JW in the same pot. This prove how JW are not so different as religion/organization who claim to be only true and only one religion with highest moral standards above all others. Catholic church and JW looking at child molestation as a sin, moral failure. According to recommendation they need to change that view on issue. GB changed many past "truths" and replaced "firmly bible based teachings" with "new teachings" giving same explanation - this new teachings is also "firmly established on Bible" :))). Will they change "two witness rule" in cases of child molestation? Until now they said "firmly" NO. But future can/might give "new clarification" on this matter :)) And all members will see that new instructions as "proper food in proper time". hehe "Jehovah's Witnesses accused of failing to adopt abuse inquiry recommendations" Posted Fri 10 Mar 2017, http://www.abc.net.au/radio/programs/worldtoday/jehovahs-witnesses-accused-of-failing-to-adopt/8343354
  2. Many of JW members who read the topics in this forum can not accept the fact that the main church body aka Gb violates both laws - divine and human. GB asks of every member to report any fact and person that violates the JW Code in the assembly. But the GB does not want to report and give facts, evidence, documents, statements that would allow a justice, even "imperfect, worldly" justice. hehe
  3. JW's mistaken claim...

    John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. KJV 1 In the beginning was the Word,+ and the Word was with God,+ and the Word was a god.* NWT from JWorg Why sending sad emoticons ? :)) be happy, translators and transcribers and copyist with bible scholars and church fathers (past and present) have problems with wording
  4. 1975 and the Jehovah's Witnesses

    I just watch one video, and moderator pointed on one significant detail. Connected with WT Chart of Significant Dates. Book published in 1966. ("Life Everlasting-in freedom in sons of God") In fact this Chart shows strong WT belief, how past looked like and how Future will look. I just copy/paste (3) THREE LAST DATES from Chart. IT is very interesting their interpretations on two main world "kings" and possibility of WW III. And then 1975 culmination with wording END OF 6000 MAN'S EXISTENCE. (in double talking it can be also understood as End of human existence :)))) What is next DATE?? END OF 7000 years, and JW of those past days (1960s) knew very well what that can mean, in fact. This Last 1000 years of 7th day is in fact PARADISE aka GOD'S KINGDOM, 1000 years ruling over the world. Skipping from autumn of 1975 to autumn 2975 shows that very well. Nothing in connection to "prophecies" that must take place according to WT interpretations. Events (fulfilled bible prophecies) are missing from 1975 to future. We all know how many "bible prophecies" WT has been counted and explained until 1966 when this book was published. But no one was mentioned. BUT WT was still put one future EVENT- the FULFILLMENT OF YEAR AS FINISHED DATE FOR 1OOO REIGN. End of 1000 year Christ kingdom ended in 2975. In those days and i believe similar is until today, one interpretation is same; 7 day of God's rest ending after 7000 years of man's existence. This is prove of WT calculation about 1975. Quote from JWorg said; "And, since the seventh day has been continuing for thousands of years, it may reasonably be concluded that each of the six creative periods, or days, was at least thousands of years in length." https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200001061 According to this, not changed view-yet, WT interpretations is/was that 1 creation day was 7000 long. So, by that and other interpretation on Bible it is significant to see that WT IN FACT PROMOTED VIEW HOW Jesus Kingdom would/will come in 1975 because His Kingdom lasting 1000 years and by that Completing 7th day of Bible terminology as WT interpret. Quote from JWORG; However, this statement is not made regarding the seventh day, on which God proceeded to rest, indicating that it continued. (Ge 2:1-3) Also, more than 4,000 years after the seventh day, or God’s rest day, commenced, Paul indicated that it was still in progress. At Hebrews 4:1-11 he referred to the earlier words of David (Ps 95:7, 8, 11) and to Genesis 2:2 and urged: “Let us therefore do our utmost to enter into that rest.” By the apostle’s time, the seventh day had been continuing for thousands of years and had not yet ended. The Thousand Year Reign of Jesus Christ, who is Scripturally identified as “Lord of the sabbath” (Mt 12:8), is evidently part of the great sabbath, God’s rest day. (Re 20:1-6) This would indicate the passing of thousands of years from the commencement of God’s rest day to its end. The week of days set forth at Genesis 1:3 to 2:3, the last of which is a sabbath, seems to parallel the week into which the Israelites divided their time, observing a sabbath on the seventh day thereof, in keeping with the divine will. (Ex 20:8-11) CHART QF SIGNIFICANT DATES FROM MAN'S CREATION TO 7000 A.M. 1966 Threat of World War III grows more ominous as between "king of the north" and the "king of the south." (Dan. 11: 5-7, 40) Expansion of organization of Jehovah's Christian witnesses continues, and international series of "God's Sons of Liberty" District Assemblies are scheduled to begin on June 22, in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Book Life Everlasting-in Freedom of the Sons of God to be released Saturday, June 25.1966 1975 End ot 6th 1,000.year day of man's existence (in early autumn) _________________________________________________________________ 2975 End ot 7th 1,000-year day of man's existence (in early autumn)

  8. Anna, i found this explanation of term; In the context of appellate procedure, it refers to an appellate court sending a case back to the trial court so that the case can be retried, or so that trial court can enter an order that conforms to the findings of the appellate court. Remittitur is a process by which jurisdiction is transferred back from the appellate court to the trial court. Remittitur divests the appellate court of the jurisdiction after it has resolved the appeal, and permits full jurisdiction over the judgment to be returned to the trial court. https://definitions.uslegal.com/r/remittitur/ but you never know what and how lawyers can play the game :))))
  9. 1975 and the Jehovah's Witnesses

    https://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/w20130815/disfellowshipped-child-seating-location/ "....parents may even study the Bible with a disfellowshipped minor who continues to live with them." "When it comes to Kingdom Hall seating arrangements, it would seem reasonable that a disfellowshipped minor could also quietly sit with his parents." "What, though, if a disfellowshipped child no longer lives with his parents? Would this circumstance make a difference? In the past, this magazine has clearly stated the proper attitude that a Christian should strive to maintain when it comes to association with a disfellowshipped relative who is not living at home. *" I did not succeed in searching for sitting in car/KH rule. But from this (and more if went to past WT articles) is obvious how they have various rules and changes of rules through time.

  14. 1975 and the Jehovah's Witnesses

    serious statement for serious students and those who are not serious Bold text said ...To the contrary, it is a time when one should be keenly aware that the end of this system of things is rapidly coming to its violent end. :))))) 1975 ... and today is year 2017 at the end. 2017-1975= 42 years 42 is interesting number, perhaps some type and antitype is possible to get from 42
