    Pudgy got a reaction from Kick_Faceinator in Conscience individual and collective   
    Correctly handling the "Word of Truth", is the same as correctly handling a saw, a hammer, a level, or any other tool. 
    WORDS are the tools with which we think.
    If we use tools in a wrong way, what we build will be crap.
    If we use words in a wrong way, what we think will be crap.
    My considered dogged opinion is that Sen-yor Chavez is on the verge of hysterical panic.
  2. Thanks

    FINLAND - Jehovah's Witness Leaders Suspected of Fundraising Crime
    Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. If you have a religion in Finland and want to raise money for a religion, you need a permission to do so. Permission must be applied for from the state. Jehovah's Witnesses have raised money in the Watchtower without permission, which is against the fundraising law. Religions in Finland are allowed to raise money without permission with collection (in practice this means passing of a collection plate at the religious event). Because Jehovah's Witnesses do not practice that kind of collection, they should have applied permission to raise money. Collecting money with a bank account number is prohibited without permission.
    The case is all over the newspapers in Finland.

    Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. And the question of "why Jehovah's Witnesses have not applied for permission to raise money?": in order to obtain permission, a statement of religion financial policies is required. Possibly they didn't want open their financial policies.

    Exactly, you have to think of it like I do when I see the "mostly peaceful protests". It doesn't matter if its "mostly peaceful" when your business has been looted or burned to the ground. On the whole, his reign was a failure.

    Only to ignorant ex-witnesses with nothing better to do, than to insult themselves. You think you are making a difference. The Watchtower will stand, while your ruined your soul. Who do you think, God will appreciate better?

    Well you, seems to me, agree, how GB in 1941 were not been "guided by spirit" but by own jargon, slang of that time. And JW members fell under GB slang influence, instead HS influence.
    Subject is: Who is to blame for misinformation?
    Don't forget. @Witness made update. 
    .............WTJWorg made updates (with new optional "dates" for Armageddon). :))

    I have non-JW relatives in Portlandia so I have to deal w/the leftist-postmodernist garbage all the time when I visit. It infects everyone's thinking.

    Pudgy reacted to JW Insider in Why I had to choose my own family over being a Jehovah’s Witness..... By JODIE CHAPMAN   
    I heard about that particular exchange. Or at least that such shenanigans had been reported on by Joe Rogan. (I don't really know much about the two being interviewed.) My older son is a lawyer who came by to help my wife and I do some gardening/planting today, and by coincidence he was quoting Joe Rogan today. I knew generally about some of the bogus academic papers, but had never listened closely enough to know exactly what these were about. It's a shame what kind of hypocrisy and shallow thinking can make up swaths of academia.
    I couldn't care much less about modern gender issues, but the shallowness and hypocrisy of publishing what people want to hear has infected many other ideologies -- and has manipulated attitudes toward ideologies and their supposed "opposites." And of course, this can be taken advantage of by those who know what's going on, sometimes to promote something true, but usually with only enough truth to help leverage a more sinister agenda. Discovering "truth" becomes a bit more complex when we realize that even the studies and statistics it's supposedly based on can easily be misused -- or just made up out of thin air.  Starting with the conclusion and working backwards (or "creating" evidence) to make it believable has become such a common practice in support of ideology.

    To you in general, every academic paper is bogus. My thought is, coming from an uneducated person such as yourself, how can you tell if a paper is bogus. Just because, certain academic scholars for insistence, put your ideology of the Watchtower chronology to shame. The latest one, you made a spectacle of yourself, but in your uneducated mind, it was bogus, because you have vested decades, refuting the Watchtower Chronology to your ex-witness friends. You can "never" admit how, incredibly wrong you are with secular chronology, that you're willing to take that false ideology to your grave.
    Seems to me your understanding of scholarly literature is bogus. If your son is a lawyer, he must not be a good one. if he is, he wouldn't be able to stomach what you are, shoveling.
    Once again, you and Xero show ignorance with your assertions. Find something better to complain and criticize about, since scripture or academia is NOT your cup of tea! However, you are now, looking like women with a lot of time in their hands!!

    Do you mean like the proverbs about where there is no fuel, the fire goes out? (Proverbs 20:26) There may be something to that. 
    Sometimes rage boils over into the actual world. You wouldn’t want to think you were a contributing factor to that.
    It may not be like how “experts” in the back pocket of video game makers assure us that online violence presents just a harmless substitute for the real thing. 
    It may be like how those “experts” would never dare say the same thing with regard to child porn. Nor would they ever dare say it with regard to hate speech against gays, transgenders, or minorities.
    Look! How little a fire it takes to set so great a woodland on fire! Well, the tongue is a fire. (James 3:5)
    That may be indeed the applicable verse here. Our people clearly recognize it in other circumstances.
