  1. Has anyone had success installing the JW Library app on a Chromebook? If so, which brand and model number? Thanks!
  2. I find it absolutely wonderful that we can: 1. add notes to our electronic Bible now. Every time that a scripture is explained now, I'll make a note in my electronic Bible, quoting the explanation and where it came from. 2. use the electronic device in service, often playing back videos to the householder to where a sufficient volume is necessary. 3. study, for instance, The Watchtower, with highlighting and adding notes that might be useful when commenting at meetings or for use later 4. access the Watchtower Library CD for use when an explanation is from a publication th
  3. I'm android and use Moonreader for studying the Watchtower. And I downloaded the ePub version of the NWT which I added to Moonreader. (I won't use anything but ePub files because of the links that one can click on so easily which aren't available with pdf documents (as far as I know). At any rate, I will add notes in that Moonreader epub NWT whenever I come across an explanation of a scripture. An example was the explanation of how Jesus could be both the twig and root of Jessie from "Digging for Spiritual Gems" in this weeks midweek meeting (Dec 19 - 25, 2016). I simply clicked on the lin
  4. 1. Holly said: "Others have also posted using the comparison of science to what we believe the Bible teaches. I don't agree with this comparison because of what the Bible tells us. For instance, Paul did not expect his teaching to change: Galatians 1: 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! 9 As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!" Holly c'mon. Seriously? We're talking about the attempt
  5. Holly wrote: "I think the point Shiwii is making is that you would accept the Trinity doctrine, or any other doctrine you were told to accept, in order to, as you've said, not break unity with the other members of the WTS. This would be looking to men and not to God." And if pigs could fly............. That's just a word trap that he's trying to led me into. The governing body would never accept the trinity and neither would I. If one doesn't know that, then one doesn't know who Jehovah's Witnesses are.
  6. 1. Holly said: " If the men on the governing body did claim to be infallible, what would that change for you?" Why do I feel like I'm being set up for some quote from many years ago that someone might interpret as the governing body or a Watchtower president saying they are infallible? So let's skip ahead. Here's the answer to that upcoming quote (if I have guessed right). While it may appear that they had been saying that they were infallible, actually they likely did believe that what they had come to believe was correct, perhaps even as if it came from Jehovah's mouth. But in t
  7. Kudos to Holly for explaining what she did to Shiwiii about misinterpreting my "trinity" comment! Thanks kiddo!
  8. Ok, let's start with this: 1. Shiwiii purported that Lloyd wrote: "if the Watchtower suddenly published an article that said that the Trinity doctrine was correct, then I'd believe that" This tells me that you are following MEN and not God." What I actually wrote was pretty much the opposite. Here it is: "It seems, and please correct me if I'm wrong, that you [Holly] want to boil it all down to where any truth, being "fluid", could change at any time. In other words, if the Watchtower suddenly published an article that said that the Trinity doctrine was correct, then I'd
  9. Holly said:"I think you can see that even though the men on the governing body say they don't claim to be infallible, what they determine to be a Bible teaching must be accepted just as though they do claim to be infallible." Another swing and a miss. Your conclusion that the reason Bible teachings are agreed upon as they are revealed is NOT because the governing body wants to be accepted as "infallible". But I'm gonna give you a little hint. What does 1 Cor. 1:10 say?
  10. >Witness said " I can serve the Father in Heaven without the need of an earthly organization" You cannot and at the same time fulfill Jesus command to, "Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you." You cannot at at the same time with all the brothers, "speak in agreement and that there should be no divisions among you, but that you may be completely united in the same mind and in the same line of thought." You canno
  11. >" to change your beliefs about what the Bible teaches whenever that organization tells you to change them. This tends to give "the truth" a rather fluid quality. " Again with the black and white thinking Holly? It seems, and please correct me if I'm wrong, that you want to boil it all down to where any truth, being "fluid", could change at any time. In other words, if the Watchtower suddenly published an article that said that the Trinity doctrine was correct, then I'd believe that, which is foolishness.....on several levels Again, please try and grasp the similar scientif
  12. >"I grew up in a farming community, and in 1975 I remember my father saying JW farmers he knew were selling their land, home, everything in anticipation of Armageddon. Are you saying that because it didn't affect you, that it didn't affect anyone of a worthy amount in God's eyes?" Did I say that? "Surely you have heard of the talk given in 1967 at District Convention by DO Charles Sunutko, "Serving with Everlasting Life in View". "Well now, as Jehovah's Witnesses, as runners, even though some of us have become a little weary, it almost seems as though Jehovah has provided
  13. >" So tell me this, if you or someone understood a scripture to mean something and it was in disagreement with the WT. You were reproved for this because it went against the org, and later it became that you were right, what would that say to you?" It would tell me that I lacked patience and was unwilling to wait on the organization Jehovah is using, and furthermore, thought more of myself and my own abilities than the organization that made so many things clear and published those things worldwide in over 700 languages as per Jesus' command. And that I was quite happy relying on my o
