Sign Language today?
James Thomas Rook Jr. posted a topic in Jehovah’s Witnesses's TopicsMy eldest son and his wife are in an "American Sign Language" Congregation here in North Carolina, and both of them can hear perfectly ... so the idea occurred to me .... what do Brothers and Sisters in other countries use? American sign Language? German Sign Language? French Sign Language? Russian Sign Language? American Indian Sign Language? Etc? Is it a Universal Language across verbal languages? Hmmmmmm .......
Spiritual Super Star by Tie Bros Illustrations
Guest posted a topic in Jehovah’s Witnesses's TopicsThought this would be a fun way to explain how pride can become fatal. Jehovah's spirit can help us to get though or endure any challenge we face. It can also help us to accomplish amazing things for him in this race to the finish. However, if we allow fear or pride to cause us to rely on our own strength, we may not make it to the final leap to the end. We would even lose out on all the "points" we got along the way. Humbly relying on Jehovah's spirit to the end is the only way to win this awful game Satan has created. Proverbs 16:18 "Pride is before a crash." 1 Corinthians 10:12-"So let the one who thinks he is standing beware that he does not fall." Â
Cut it out by tie_bros_illustrations
Guest posted a topic in Jehovah’s Witnesses's TopicsRuby encourages Opal to take a difficult step in order to get her mind off of Blue. Jesus tells us at Matthew 5:30, "Also, if your right hand is making you stumble, cut it off and throw it away from you. For it is better for you to lose one of your members than for your whole body to land in Ge·henʹna." Jesus didn't mean we should literally cut off our hands, but rather take drastic measures to remove anything that may cause us to stumble. Maybe it's a certain movie, TV program, the Internet or game. Maybe it's an associate (family, workmate, schoolmate) that brings out the worst in us or tries to get us involved in wrong doing. Maybe it's social media and the amount of time we spend on it or possibly jealous or hurt feelings we get when we see other's posts of them having fun that we may not have been invited to. Whatever it is that causes us to feel or do things God hates we should be quick to remove it from our lives. This may require drastic measures, but it will be better for us in the long run. In any case we should be understanding of those who may refrain from certain things or activities so as to keep from stumbling. (This comic is not implying that if we have an issue with a brother or sister that we should cut them off. We want to at all time demonstrate love toward our brothers and sisters and keep peace in the congregation. In real life If we have an issue with a brother or sister we should lovingly try to solve the issue.)

Heart playing with Fire (Parts 1 and 2) By @tie_bros
Guest posted a topic in Jehovah’s Witnesses's TopicsJeremiah 17:9- The heart is more treacherous than anything else and is desperate. Who can know it? Proverbs 6:27-Can a man take fire to his chest and not burn his garments?The heart can cause us to make unwise decisions when it comes to dating. It can also cause us to develop feelings for more than one person. Our heart may even convince us that we are just being kind to those of the opposite sex when in reality we may actually be flirting with others and leading them on. Thus causing them to develop feelings toward us that we have no intention of reciprocating. It can happen to anyone ( even those with privileges) and without us even noticing it. It's important we identify where to draw the line. Also it requires honest self examination as to our feelings and relationships with others.
