  1. agree, violence is not the answer and we must do all we can to calm down some situation. but respond to violence sometimes asking person to be strong in both ways.
  2. What we can extract from this statement? That some elders criticize those who made reports? That some victims and their family was not report crime because of fear of elders criticism? .....and/or more? but we see next statement: By this, all cases (past and present) must be made known to authorities. Then Why in USA WT not gave documents to Court when they ask? Or by free will to police? Again, elders and others who know about this crime have to read again this sentence in JW document: The elders’ handling of an accusation of child abuse is not a replacement for the authorities’ handling of the matter.
  3. Just one of many changes WT made in recent years. 19 In review, what have we learned? In the beginning of this article, we raised three “when” questions. We first considered that the great tribulation did not begin in 1914 but will start when the United Nations attacks Babylon the Great. Then, we reviewed why Jesus’ judgment of the sheep and the goats did not begin in 1914 but will occur during the great tribulation. Finally, we examined why Jesus’ arrival to appoint the faithful slave over all his belongings did not occur in 1919 but will take place during the great tribulation. So, then, all three “whens” apply to the same future time period—the great tribulation. How does this adjusted view further affect our understanding of the illustration of the faithful slave? Also, how does it affect our understanding of other parables, or illustrations, of Jesus that are being fulfilled during this time of the end? These important questions will be considered in the following articles. source of paragraph: https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2013530 Here in this paragraph we see just some of many changes from past teachings in Watchtower ideology. Well, questions are as follow: What is The Truth? Can The Truth Stop To Be True? Does The Truth have the Owner? Why do some people like to claim that Only They know a Certain Truth? Does some Truth exists outside of our awareness of the existence of such truth? Why do we argue how some Truth or Truths can never change? Why can not we name The Truth, which has ceased to be true, that it is a Lie or at least Not The Truth? Do these truths from paragraph 19 cease to be true on the day of publication in the Watchtower Journal on July 15 2013 or are they, in fact, have never been The Truth?
  4. Symbolic or not, sword cut down the ear of one man. Or do you suggest that the ear also became symbolic item? 5 While Jesus was having dinner at Levi’s house, many tax collectors and sinners were eating with him and his disciples, for there were many who followed him. 16 When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” Mark 2 10Later, as Jesus was dining at Matthew’shouse, many tax collectors and sinners came and ate with Him and His disciples. 11When the Pharisees saw this, they asked His disciples, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”…Mat 9 34The Son of Man came eating and drinking, andyou say, ‘Look at this glutton and drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and of sinners!’ Luke 7 In WT revised Bible chapter 8 beginning with verse 12. https://www.jw.org/en/publications/bible/study-bible/books/john/8/ So i have to ask, what kind of gospel from chapter 8 you talking about? :)))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
  5. "The big question now is where are you drawing temptation from in regards to the whole passage itself in this chapter? No cross-references to the passage alludes to temptation at all." ......Space Merchant ask me, and answer is; Dear readers of this issue, here is the origin, source of the word TEMPTATION mentioned for the very first time. And we see who first who put this word in circulation of our discussion. :))
  6. It is not wrong, in my opinion. But some other people here have different opinion.
  7. If i understand English sentence construction correct you said 2 separate things, correct me please if i am wrong, or give me explanation. 1) masturbation never leads to.... sexual immorality with another person? 2) masturbation never leads to .. thoughts about sexual immorality with another person?
  8. James said, 3 When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; Well, if neither Jesus nor JHVH tempted Peter with putting a sword in his hand, but only gave him a lesson with some simple command or imperative and obligated sentence addressed to Peter and other in group, "to buy and carry a sword", would it be the same that God or Jesus tell to disciple to go to whorehouse with him and after when some of his disciple have happy time with some of the women there, Jesus told to those who experienced fun time, "You see my friends, it is not good to do this what you have done. I brought you here to give you this important lesson."
  9. SM please be more careful about putting your ideas and words in my mouth about what i told or not told. Our conversation about money was in different context. I never said how i don't or didn't believe in "carried a purse". SM, SM :)))))))))
  10. sinners ......first thing came to me in this moment........ ....then we can count some other attributes too......................
  11. Ohh Allen, Do you really want to say how i am the one who put you in temptation and dragged you in this discussion?? :)))))
  12. Well yes, it is ok what Jesus put in his prayer. But he personally ask them to have sword/swords with them at that temptation moment. Why would Jesus intentionally stumble his friends and made them to do something what is wrong? Because of fulfilling the prophecy? Or Jesus made some parables, enigmatic message, hyperbole, secret teaching? Why would Jesus ask them to CARRY swords, when he knows very well that his followers can, might be put in temptation to use it? Or did Jesus want that sword to be used? Anyway, Jesus gave Peter just advice about what could happen if you use lethal weapon in confrontation with other people. Interestingly, after healing the ear of injured man, Jesus gave no explicit command to Peter how he is guilty of breaking JHVH Law or Jesus Law.
