  1. "She put a notice in her local newspaper on May 3 and 4 with an address provided for people to send messages of condolence to the family. " So some kind women sent her messages of condolences and scriptures to help a grieving widow with a positive message. Sounds like this poor woman had a beef with the jw's, just not with the message they sent her.
  2. What do you suppose the graph would look like if the A.R.C findings were put on jw.org?
  3. To be honest, growing up for 20 plus years in several different congregations, never was there once a play, a dance, a reception, party ever done at a kingdom hall. Even now, with a close relative who is a jw, they aren't even allowed to have a potluck get together at the local kingdom hall. So why did these things take place....I don't know, what I don know however is I was raised to believe that a kingdom hall was not allowed to be used as a place of celebration...aka party, only meetings, wedding ceremonies and eulogies were allowed. Sure there were wedding receptions, and of course with or
  4. For now if it is at all possible for you to do, do not cherry pick my post, I know its hard for you since this is what jw's are best at, but if your going to insist on cherry picking, post the mostly positive things I said. And no where did I say anything about 1975 or Franz and all that. So your response is just a whiny defensive rebuttal instead of a coherent statement. Please don't comment unless you can do so.
  5. Now I'm not condemning these people for wanting to have some joy inside their house of worship, but a few things stand out...these congregations would have been strongly reproved, if not even some disfellowshipped 10-15 20 years ago. This kind of joy definitely would have made my childhood much more easier to endure. But not just that...at my church, worship is done with christian centered music, by christian artist praising God and Jesus. These video's the brothers and sisters are singing and dancing and plagiarizing worldly music, and dances that have been popular in bars and worldly plays.
  6. Since jw women shave their legs, does that mean if a jw man shaves his legs, he is sexually fluid?
  7. Is the governing body again apostatizing from the Jehovah witnesses?
  8. 33 When they heard this, they twere enraged and wanted to kill them. 34 But a Phariseein the council named uGamaliel, va teacher of the law held in honor by all the people,stood up and gave orders to put the men outside for a little while. 35 And he said to them,“Men of Israel, take care what you are about to do with these men. 36 For wbefore thesedays Theudas rose up, xclaiming to be somebody, and a number of men, about fourhundred, joined him. He was killed, and all who followed him were dispersed and came tonothing. 37 After him Judas the Galilean rose up in the days of ythe census and drew
  9. To be fair, the watchtower isn't the only religion to claim they are a prophet and give one if not a few dates of the end of the world:
  10. The idea that 1975 would witness the end of the world was first introduced in 1966. "The published timetable resulting from this independent study gives the date of man's creation as 4026 B.C.E. According to this trustworthy Bible chronology six thousand years from man's creation will end in 1975, and the seventh period of a thousand years of human history will begin in the fall of 1975 C.E. So six thousand years of man's existence on earth will soon be up, yes, within this generation. So in not many years within our own generation we are reaching what Jehovah God could view as the sevent
  11. Yeah, Armageddon is going to happen any moment now so lets spend a whole lot of money on building new luxury buildings instead of leading people to Christ.
  12. Courts should definitely get involved when there is an allegation of covering up child abuse and molestation.
  13. Thank you for the video, but do you believe all apostates wish to do something like this, and most of your so-called apostates are born into the watchtower., they know your doctrines very well, they like me were born and raised in the watchtower. And the watchtower and all the kingdom hall's are a business, not a religion, and the watchtower has set up secret policy and procedures to protect child molesters and abusive parents. Any business is accountable to the laws of the land.
  14. That is definitely the wrong way to go about having a dialogue with witnesses. This is a better way.....
  15. That's nice, now she can be officially disfellowshipped and kicked out of her parents house at 10 years old.
  16. As we all know, the watchtower refuses to let any one see any of that info., but one of the governing body did say their not bringing in as much money as they are expected to spend.
      Hello guest!
  17. I have a two part question: Why does Jehovah require the faithful and discreet slave to build a very expensive and grandiose luxury compound when the end of the world is imminent and how can the faithful and discreet slave justify the cost when they are not receiving as much money as they are spending?
