  1. When the Finnish episode was going on, I saw it on the Internet, made a copy but still have not read it. I glanced through it and saw nothing untoward, so I did not read it. Interesting?
  2. Not bad! If it is not photoshopped. So hoses spying on people now?
  3. There are more than one version of it. I love the one with Keira Knightley. I also have the DVD.
  4. I guess the suit is just representative of what has to be taken off; but point taken. They could easily have found a picture with clothing also representing the new personality of a more respectable nature. Or start with home clothes and finish with more elegant home clothes. Things like "none are perfect" creeping in too. But to err is human.

    Heading is incorrect, unless it is done on purpose. Slave not slavery.
  6. Where I live it was customary to send children to Sunday School and the parents stayed at home. We even have an elder whose mother chose to send him to the Kingdom Hall and he never left when he got older. He is still an elder and happy to serve Jehovah. The mother came into the truth years later, but she sent him from a small boy.
  7. Matthew9969 It is not adult content.( We don't have Sunday School where the parents send their children and they stay at home. Everyone learns together.) Read what Jehovah said about it. (Deuteronomy 31:12, 13) 12 Congregate the people, the men and the women and the little ones and your alien resident who is within your gates, in order that they may listen and in order that they may learn, as they must fear Jehovah YOUR God and take care to carry out all the words of this law. 13 And their sons who have not known should listen, and they must learn to fear Jehovah YOUR God all the days that YOU are living upon the soil to which YOU are crossing the Jordan to take possession of it.” Learn to trust Jehovah. Jehovah knows it is good for children to sit quietly and listen. They learn discipline by what they see they parents do. If the parents pay keen attention, the children imitate that. If the parents chew gum, get up every half hour, talk while the speaker is talking, etc, that is what the children learn. Little people are capable of much more than we think.
  8. You can say then that objectivity is not necessarily diminished by abject circumstances. -------- I think Tom has met his match. Which Tom doesn't matter.
  9. 1989 Watchtower

    OK, but I was'nt being serious.

    If you don't want the corrections, when the updates come in to the computer, you can tell it No. And keep your bound volumes.
  11. They probably don't want to start a trend, as it could become touristic.

    A quote is not a comment.
  13. I think this is the intended scripture quote in which Jesus directs us to worship the Father, Jehovah God. (Luke 4:8) In reply Jesus said to him: “It is written, ‘It is Jehovah your God you must worship, and it is to him alone you must render sacred service.’”
  14. Reminder re using the word Plan in connection with Jehovah *** w10 4/15 pp. 7-8 Holy Spirit’s Role in the Outworking of Jehovah’s Purpose *** Holy Spirit’s Role in the Outworking of Jehovah’s Purpose “My word that goes forth from my mouth . . . will have certain success in that for which I have sent it.”—ISA. 55:11. IMAGINE that two men are each preparing to take a trip by car. One maps out a specific, detailed path to his destination. The other has his destination clearly in mind, but he also knows many alternate routes. He is prepared to adjust his course as necessary to deal with any contingency. In some respects, the different approaches of these two men illustrates the distinction between a plan and a purpose. A plan might be compared to mapping out a detailed path, whereas a purpose may involve having in mind a goal but not necessarily one specific manner of reaching it. 2 When it comes to carrying out his will, Jehovah has, not a fixed plan, but an unfolding purpose. (Eph. 3:11) This purpose involves what he originally intended for mankind and the earth—that this globe be turned into a paradise home, where perfect humans can live in peace and happiness forever. (Gen. 1:28) When Adam and Eve sinned, Jehovah met that situation and made arrangements to ensure that his purpose would be accomplished. (Read Genesis 3:15.) Jehovah determined that his symbolic woman would bring forth a “seed,” or Son, who would eventually destroy the instigator, Satan, and undo all the harm he has caused.—Heb. 2:14; 1 John 3:8. 3 No power in heaven or on earth can prevent God’s expressed purpose from being realized. (Isa. 46:9-11) Why can we say that? Because Jehovah’s holy spirit is involved. That irresistible force guarantees that God’s purpose “will have certain success.” (Isa. 55:10, 11) We do well to keep fully attuned to the unfolding of God’s purpose. Our future life prospects depend on its fulfillment. In addition, it is faith-strengthening to see how Jehovah uses holy spirit. Let us, then, consider the spirit’s role—in the past, at present, and in the future—in the outworking of Jehovah’s purpose.
