    Of course under the mosaic law she'd have been put to death and you can't commit adultery against a dead person.

    But could you commit adulatory with a dead person?

    That comment about a fellow brother shows you have a real problem with ego….and a great need to be right……can you prove he did that…..or could that come under a false accusation against a fellow brother……Personally I don’t think anyone knows and you need to stop chasing this and be a little bit humble and stop shoving your thoughts down everyone’s throats…Whoever  did it could see it was causing disruptions and unnecessarily contentions and debating proving fruitless……and none of it promoting peace  amongst brothers….you do well to perhaps give some credit to whomever did it and stop your self promotion of your belief.

    I couldn’t care less about dates…..so give it a rest …no honest hearted true brother would do what you are doing to prove your personal point…you are relentless in your crusade…

    you are one big red flag to me!!!!

    you are like a a broken record and I for one no longer even read your ramblings and copy and pastes….

    Weak minded thinking would be a better title for you.

    Yes. The plan to demolish earth to make way for the new intergalactic highway has been on the books for 10,000 years. There has been plenty of time to speak out against it, and if you can’t be bothered to participate in civil affairs, its a little too late to be unsporting about it at the last minute.

    Was that before or after How to Cook Humans cookbook came out?

  4. The question makes me think of Carl Sagan's Contact, if you haven't read it I recommend it, or at least I liked it and the movie adaptation as well.

    Sagan brings up this subject in a way. There will be groups of Christians who will think the visitors are satan and his demons, (although I've never seen a picture of a demon shaped like a flying object). Then there will be the new age Christians who will think they are angelic messengers. Then there will be other Christians like me who will wait until we have contact and find out about their intentions.

    But as a side question...if their intentions are to subjugate the human race or want our planet, will it be biblically wrong to defend ourselves via the war machine?

    I have been, um, doggedly pursuing the answers to some questions, and I think I know the answers, but in the tradition of beating irrelevant trivia that really has no practical value to death, in fact, to a thin puree, I thought it might be a good idea to get some other peoples thoughts.

    It's about Cain, Able, and the Land of Exile. (Genesis 4:*}

    1.) When Cain was banished to the Land of Exile, who was it already there that he was GREATLY afraid would kill him?

    2.) Was it an existing Land of Exile that he was banished to, or did it BECOME a Land of Exile after his arrival?

    3.) Apparently Cain was afraid that wherever he roamed, there would be someone there to kill him, so was the Land of Exile like, say, the next County over, or did it extend all the way to, say Asia?

    4. How does one man and one woman  immediately start building a City? (I would think a grass thatched single shelter would have been more appropriate, without tools.)

    5.) Were the inhabitants of the Land of Exile inclined to kill Cain only, or anybody that inhabited Eden?

    6.) And of course, the "standard" question .... Where did Cain get his wife?

    Those questions are as hard to answer as what kind of fruit was on the forbidden tree?

    There is a vampire cult who believe they have the words of Cain and his biography and how he became the first vampire....

  7.  20 But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death.”

    21 You may say to yourselves, “How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the Lord?” 22 If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed.

    This organization is already guilty of being false prophets, dude, your continuing the tradition of prophecying.

    On the other hand, upon resurrection, if it should turn out that God has really done this, perhaps she could thank him for having given her a heads-up in advance so she wouldn’t be one of those who went down. 

    And if it should turn out that he hasn’t done this, that there are more survivors than she envisioned, where’s the beef?

    ”Destruction of the wicked” has been a Bible theme from the moment pen was put to parchment. All but the most liberal of churches have it to some degree. Many put it far worse that JWs do, by preaching that God would torment the wicked FOREVER in hell, as payback for just A FEW DECADES of wrongdoing. Doesn’t your church believe something like that?

    1. We don't believe in the Dante's version of hell like jw's do.

    2. We believe people choose to go there, God doesn't send them there.

    In a private conversation with four of his disciples, Jesus answers their question of what sign to look for about his second presence stating, "for those days will be days of a tribulation such as has not occurred from the beginning of the creation that God created until that time, and will not occur again."

    This is a good point from both sides. My wife and I love to be together, but apart from everyone else. We just like our time together, just the two of us. We never did like meetings, too may people, too much noise. We are not ones for going to mass gatherings. Attending assemblies, especially when the five children were young, was horrid.  So maybe we wouldn't enjoy the 'paradise' so much :) .   Unless we were given a small plot of land away from 'the madding crowd'.  But then some folks on here tell me I won't get the chance anyway.................. 

    Yeah, waking up to 140 billion other people would be quite shocking, but at least there would be a lot more hands to clean up all 7 billion or so dead bodied and destroyed cities, which still doesn't sound appealing.

    It's quite funny to read here JWs are disagreeing with each other over many things.  Well those who say they are JWs anyway. They even disagree with each other over the history of their own religion.  Carry on folks it's good for a laugh. 

    Yes you can see the lovely union they boast to have:)
