  1. It is not surprising that Satan and his demon associates could manifest a visible point of light in order to deceive / trick humans in to believing something. Consider the whole U.F.O. matter in our world today. There is NEVER any especially detailed images (other than faked pictures). Many of the descriptions or supposed videos are merely "points of light" moving around in the sky.
  2. This could be the U.S's beginning to act like Russia in implanting false notions about Jehovah's Witnesses.
  3. These parents... This family say's they are Jehovah's Witnesses?????? I'm sorry. But they are appearently NOT (Dad, beard, ponytail). This almost appears to be someone claiming to be Jehovah's Witnesses in order to bring reproach on Jehovah's people. They obviously are not practicing the standards of style and dress that Jehovah's people have adopted such as modest grooming, etc. Am I the only one who notices this? Watch the video.

  5. “Go in through the narrow gate, because broad is the gate and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are going in through it; whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are finding it. “Be on the watch for the false prophets who come to you in sheep’s covering, but inside they are ravenous wolves. By their fruits you will recognize them. Never do people gather grapes from thorns or figs from thistles, do they? Likewise, every good tree produces fine fruit, but every rotten tree produces worthless fruit. A good tree cannot bear worthless fruit, nor can a rotten tree produce fine fruit. Every tree not producing fine fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Really, then, by their fruits you will recognize those men." - Matthew 7:13-20
  6. Just one more smart phone DISTRACTION to trap people in another gaming addiction. Big frivolous time waster.
  7. The picture is obviously a "photoshop". No real worshiper of Jehovah would make such a mark on their bodies. The marking of Gods people is a figurative, spiritual marking. Not a literal one. Perhaps the picture could be taken as a kind of warning for us though. We are to be loyal to Jehovah and His son Jesus in the Heavens. As far as the Earthly organization that we are a part of goes... It is merely a slave of our Creator. They only use technology and their imperfect best wits along with sincere prayer and deep Bible study to help us to improve our relationship with Jehovah. Any logos they have made are just that - logos. We don't want to put those logos up on high. They just help us to remember where to find help in learning of Jehovah and His purposes. We need to be careful to not let these logos and media aids (such as the cartoon characters Caleb and Sophia) on the Bible teaching web site jw.org NOT become "images to which we offer worshipful devotion. Imperfect Humans tend to wrongly set up physical icons to represent God. God has said: 'DON'T DO THAT'. That is why Jehovah took Moses' body and buried it secretly... So the Isrealites wouldn't try to make a shrine of Moses' grave. Our devotion is to Jehovah God DIRECTLY. JW.org helps us to do that. WE MUST BE CAREFUL to not render worship to JW.org.
  8. So many people (even some who say they are my brothers) put this situation is a negative light. Disfellowshipping serves the purpose of saving a persons life hopefully. Jehovh wants them to turn around and quit practicing what he doesn't approve of. He wants them to be able to continue living into His wonderful new world He has promised. People say: "how heartless his family is for "shunning" him." Those people don't understand! They are trying to save that ones everlasting life by 'disciplining in righteousness'. People just won't see past the momentary pain needed to save the life of the one who has gone astray. Hebrews 12:10, 11 . . . "True, no discipline seems for the present to be joyous, but it is painful; yet afterward, it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it." Then Upon his / her reinstatement: (2 Corinthians 2:5-7. . . "Now if anyone has caused sadness, he has saddened, not me, but all of YOU to an extent—not to be too harsh in what I say. This rebuke given by the majority is sufficient for such a man, so that, on the contrary now, YOU should kindly forgive and comfort [him], that somehow such a man may not be swallowed up by his being overly sad."
  9. Satan also used sly questionings when trying to imply that God was unjust when Satan spoke to Eve through the serpent. He also used questions when trying to accuse the faithful man Job.
  10. @Jay Witness I was NOT calling you the devil. I was merely using a phrase that Jesus used toward those religious leaders who were always seeking to find fault with his true teachings. Jesus even told his loyal follower Peter once: "Get behind me Satan" when Peter need to be corrected in his understanding. I am sorry that you misinterpret my meaning when I choose to use the phrase, quoting Jesus: "your are from your father the Devil"... I was NOT calling you the Devil sir. I was merely making a comparison between the first accuser and those who follow in his lead of finding fault with those earnestly trying to do their best in serving Jehovah. Jesus said those words to the Pharasies: "YOU are from YOUR father the Devil, and YOU wish to do the desires of YOUR father. That one was a manslayer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie]." - John 8:44. Do those words that Jesus said to those Pharisees make him "liable to the fiery Ge·henʹna."? (Matthew 5:22)... I think not. You are a human being... Sinful just like me. But it seems that your aim is to slander a group of other sinful humans who are just trying their best to do Gods will as best they know how. And Satan did the same thing to Jesus and his first followers.
  11. @ Jay Witness The main thing they said was: "Our thoughts are with his family and friends, particularly his fellow worshippers... in the congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Minnesota [where he attended]. We hope that all find comfort in the Bible’s promise of a future time when death, pain, and tears will be no more.—Revelation 21:3, 4." The JW brothers acknowledge not knowing the details surrounding this mans death. Their main point was acknowledging the family he left behind. They were not not giving him undue praise. These words about Satan really do apply. (And they can also apply to many who follow Satan in the way he continually makes his ACCUSATIONS): Revelation 12:10, 11: "And I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come to pass the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ, because the ACCUSER of our brothers has been hurled down, who ACCUSES them day and night before our God! And they conquered him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their witnessing, and they did not love their souls even in the face of death." Since Prince has widely been known as one of our group of fellow worshipers and so well known to millions in the world, it obviously was decided that at least a brief statement should be made. We don't feel that he deserved any more recognition than any other of our brothers. But we also don't want to appear calloused (Since he was so well known). That being said... You obviously look to find ANYTHING AT ALL to accuse our brothers of... Just like "your father, the Devil." - John 8:44,45
  12. I saw this movie. I'm ashamed to say that I didn't walk out due to the terrible violence in the film. Yes Jehovah's name was mentioned by Lex Luthor as part of a list of names of other (false) gods. I considered this to be rather blasphemous, because the true God was lumped together with several false gods (including Superman). Really bothered me. More and more, Satan is using all means at his disposal including the entertainment industry to minimize our God Jehovah. It's no wonder that the number of atheists and godless people is growing. I would NOT recommend anyone else to go see this movie.
  13. These "Orthodox" leaders are just like the religious leaders in the time that Jesus walked the Earth. Stirring up the populace with emotional and nationalistic rhetoric against Jesus and His followers. And they're stirring up hatred against Jesus' followers today.
  14. Well... After all... We're not in it for the money. (Matthew 10:8-10) " . . .You received free, give free. 9 Do not acquire gold or silver or copper for your money belts, or a food pouch for the trip, or two garments, or sandals, or a staff, for the worker deserves his food."
