  1. Why, O Lord, do you stand far away? Why do you hide yourself in times of trouble? Psalm 10 But who are you, O man, to answer back to God? Will what is molded say to its molder, “Why have you made me like this?” - Romans 9 O Lord, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not hear? Or cry to you “Violence!” and you will not save? Habakkuk 1 Then the Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind and said: “Who is this that darkens counsel by words without knowledge? Dress for action like a man; I will question you, and you make it known to me. Job 38 Jesus answered them, “I also w
  2. Bible give example that anyone is entitled to ask all sort of questions even those kind that question motive of person. God allowed satan to ask this: "Does Job fear God for nothing?" In this question God didn't see any reason to punish devil for asking not only about Job motives but motives of God Himself. Further events show that God participated fully in conversation with devil and they both gave ideas or way how such questions could be, should be answered. If you or anyone have doubt, interest, are curious about someone or something, a question may be asked.
  3. Before or after Christ, is that matter? People lived even before the coming of Christ. Israel lived before, too, and were under Law of God. And that Law regulate war actions of Israel. What is meaning of your question? About second question. People don't need "to get the authority" for direct questions towards anyone, even god. It is obtained by birth. :))
  4. Tax in Bible vocabulary have few meanings: 1- Mandatory, compulsory labor for king/kingdom. 2- Payment given to the kingdom as recognition that the subjects recognize their domination by the kingdom is called, "offering." 3- King Solomon levied the Tenth-Tax on the residents which was a regular tax to pay for his expenses.' 4- The people of Israel recognized silver and gold products only as war-booty (not products that should be used for trading) 5- To pay for the great building expenditures, Solomon imposed an additional tax on the residents aside from the Tenth-T
  5. I like this perspective about people's relations. It is true how our character can bring difficulties or easy time with different individuals. In general, and same is in JW congregations. Oh! I understand what your rebuke is. With or without a meaning. Funny how ex-JWs can get away with it, We, ex JWs worked very hard to get this status :)))
  6. In old Bible times of Israel's kings, taxes are used for wars. In the name of God. Was that ok or not, i don't know, but this is just comment on your interesting question. :))
  7. Definition of equal (Entry 1 of 3) 1a(1): of the same measure, quantity, amount, or number as another (2): identical in mathematical value or logical denotation : EQUIVALENT b: like in quality, nature, or status c: like for each member of a group, class, or society provide equal employment opportunities 2: regarding or affecting all objects in the same way : IMPARTIAL 3: free from extremes: such as a: tranquil in mind or mood b: not showing variation in appearance, structure, or proportion
  8. 1. To Society Watch Tower, Watchtower and corporations 2. To Jehovah's Witnesses and all assemblies 3. To all whom this concern Declaration on termination of membership to a religious community of Jehovah's Witnesses I was baptized in 1977 at the age of 17, then a minor. But, in good faith I answered the following two questions just before baptism, which is symbolized my dedication to God in terms of the beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses religion. At that time (before the change of June 1 1985) questions have read as follows; Have you repented of y
  9. In relation to what, to whom? :)) Perhaps the question should be: Do JWs consider me an apostate? :)))
  10. What Is Baptism? The meaning of baptism The Bible compares baptism to burial. (Romans 6:4; Colossians 2:12) Water baptism symbolizes a person’s dying to his past course of life and beginning a new one as a Christian dedicated to God. Baptism and the steps that lead up to it are God’s arrangement for a person to gain a clean conscience based on his faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 3:21) Thus, Jesus taught that his disciples must get baptized.—Matthew 28:19, 20. -
      Hello guest!
        Please
  11. Meanwhile a Jew named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was a learned man, with a thorough knowledge of the Scriptures. He had been instructed in the way of the Lord, and he spoke with great fervor and taught about Jesus accurately, though he knew only the baptism of John. He began to speak boldly in the synagogue. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they invited him to their home and explained to him the way of God more adequately. - NIV Apollos already had accurate teaching/knowledge/faith about Lord. One thing is mentioned here about baptism detail that was differ
  12. I am in Zagreb, Croatia, Europe. I believe you are many, many miles/kilometres away .... :))))
  13. 17 Today’s watchman class has likewise had to clarify its views from time to time. Can anyone doubt, though, that Jehovah has blessed the ‘faithful slave’? Besides, viewed in context, are not most of the adjustments that have occurred relatively small? Our basic understanding of the Bible has not changed. Our conviction that we are living in the last days is stronger than ever! -
  14. Please, don't be angry at me. Expression "core teachings" is in JW vocabulary and some JW participants here using this terminology to show how JW religion is same as 1st Congregation. With that in mind, logically, JW have teachings, also, that are not "core". In fact, many regulations and instructions inside WTJWorg are men made teachings and instructions, and by that they are, obviously "less important" for your faith, but important for Organization. With that in mind, i said "less important" in connection to Christ's teachings, because Religious system of particular church/organizatio
  15. Part 2. 2 John 1:9 – “Anyone who does not remain in Christ’s teaching but goes beyond it, does not have God. The one who remains in that teaching, this one has both the Father and the Son.” It would help if you or some other JW member put here a list of Christ's teachings. Start with No. 1 please and take as much numbers you need to show all the teachings of Jesus. You can, if you need, name them as "core teachings", and if you find some Chris't teachings as less important, please put them in second list. After that, please make another list of WT past teachings and actual WT t
