  1. Ms DeeDee, The ridicules part is 1900 years gap in-between when this supposedly happened! <>< People can come to know the true God and his son TODAY (more than 1900 year gap). And they can be as loyal and faithful as the first apostles. No one can judge that too much time has passed since Jesus was here. And Jesus said at Matt. 19:26 - “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
  2. Yes, the Father's position is the MOST HIGH. And Jesus said at Matt. 4:10 – Then Jesus said to him: “Go away, Satan! For it is written: ‘It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.’”
  3. That is my point...It is written by man... and man is deceived by Satan. Unless the words come from the Bible, to me they are not valid.
  4. Jesus would disagree with you...My word must be good for all time, not just for while it is convenient for me ["yes" means yes].
  5. Ms DeeDee, With a gap of some 1900 years in-between...come on that’s just plain ridiculous. <>< To think that there is a written record of the "physical" continuation from the first disciples would be ridiculous. To think that there are spiritually-minded people who follow Jesus as strictly as if they were there in his presence, is NOT ridiculous. It is a FACT, and JW's are an example of people who follow the teachings of Jesus that way [example: my 'Yes' means yes].
  6. No, I took an oath when I was initiated as a pagan to not share certain information with those who are uninitiated. Since you are not initiated, I cannot share that information with you. And in keeping Jesus' commandment, "Let your word 'Yes' mean yes," I cannot go against any oath I take. I am firm in ALWAYS letting my 'Yes' mean 'yes.'
  7. This is not a quote from the Bible. Here is what Jesus said in the Bible: John 14:28 - You heard that I said to you, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I am.
  8. I am sorry, but I am not permitted to tell you.
  9. You need to prove such claims, In apostle Paul's day, there were already false teachers. The faithful disciples would only teach the truth in order to protect the valuable truth. Thousands of people became baptized followers of Jesus. It would seem illogical to believe that not one of them or their descendants continued to be true followers of Jesus. However, I did not mean to make it seem that the JW's are the "physical" continuation of the first disciples. I am sorry if that is how my words were interpreted. I only meant that the JW's are the "spiritual" continuation of the first disciples.
  10. Yes, I'm sure there is no confirmation of any continuation. Records were not kept to PROVE continuation... In the same way, I don't know who are the parents of my grandparents in my own family. But that does not stop people (once called Bible Students) from freely choosing to become followers of Jesus' teachings by obeying all of his commandments. I am not saying that they are a "physical" continuation. Rather, they are a "spiritual" continuation.
  11. Yes, the "light" is definitely growing "brighter and brighter" as we near the end of this system. (Prov. 4:18)
  12. Note that this Scripture is pointing out that the light "shines as far as the west." If you are facing east, then you can see the actual lightning bolt as it is striking. However, if you are facing west, then you CANNOT SEE the bolt of lightning...all you see is the EFFECT of the lightning. So, in the same way, you CANNOT SEE Jesus, but you can see the effect of his coming.
  13. Yes, absolutely! All of mankind is imperfect! and as I said, they did not have the access to all Scriptures that we have today. When the first disciples were following Jesus, they did not have the Scriptures which now make up what some call the New Testament. So, as Jesus' followers were able to read and analyze the Scriptures better, their understanding of God's will and nature as a loving God grew clearer. Thus, the changes!
  14. The TRUTH is just the truth...It is not a judgment of others. The Bible says that shepherds were in the fields at night with their flocks on the night that Jesus was born. This is not a judgment of anyone...It is just a fact that this proves he was NOT born on December 25. The reason that December 25 was chosen was to convert the pagans. The pagans had a major festival celebration (at least a week long) for the "birth of the SUN." So, the newly forming Christendom Church chose that same time period for the "birth of the SON."
  15. Bible have much more verses :))) YES!!! There are SO MANY wonderful verses that tell us of the gifts God will give us or has given us.
