    • Thanks Eoin Interesting, so it didn't come from any apostates or any Witnesses just a news outlet that is not legit and appears several others were doing the same thing on many topics not just Witnesses. Irregardless of it being fake or not did you notice the increased publicity the Witnesses got from it anyway. Just goes to show that Jehovah can turn any news even bad news or unreal news to the advantage of a "witness to the nations" because now people who read this will look up the true story and see how phony the ruling by the Supreme Court was. PRAISE JAH  Matt. 10:18 says :"And you will be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a witness to them and the nations." and also " He will not fear bad news. His heart is steadfast, trusting in Jehovah.    Hello guest!

    • Act in Harmony With Jesus’ Loving Prayer “Father, . . . glorify your son, that your son may glorify you.”— Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. .  Jesus talks late into the night, imparting to his disciples precious knowledge from God. Then he raises his eyes to heaven and prays: “Father, the hour has come; glorify your son, that your son may glorify you, according as you have given him authority over all flesh, that, as regards the whole number whom you have given him, he may give them everlasting life. . . . I have glorified you on the earth, having finished the work you have given me to do. So now you, Father, glorify me alongside yourself with the glory that I had alongside you before the world was.”— Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. . While on earth, Jesus worked hard to help his disciples to overcome their weaknesses. This was essential for them to complete the work that Jesus had started. “Just as you sent me forth into the world,” prays Jesus, “I also sent them forth into the world.” For them to succeed in this lifesaving work, Jesus emphasizes three vital needs.  First, he prays that his disciples be no part of Satan’s unholy world.  Second, he prays that they may be sanctified, or kept holy, by applying to themselves the truth of God’s Word.  Third, Jesus repeatedly begs that his disciples may be united in the same bond of love that exists between him and his Father.  This calls for self-examination. Each of us should ask, ‘Am I acting in harmony with Jesus’ three requests?’ By giving attention to these things, Jesus expresses optimism “that the world may believe that you sent me forth.”—Read Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. . Under the influence of their religious leaders, the majority of people in the world choose to ignore the clear evidence that Jehovah has a united people who truly know him.  The same was true respecting Jesus’ day. So he concludes with these endearing words: “Righteous Father, the world has, indeed, not come to know you; but I have come to know you, and these have come to know that you sent me forth. And I have made your name known to them and will make it known, in order that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in union with them.”— Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. . Who can deny that Jesus has acted in harmony with his prayer? As Head of the congregation, he continues to help us make known his Father’s name and purpose. May we keep on submitting to his headship by zealously obeying his command to preach and make disciples. ( Hello guest! Please register or sign in (it's free) to view the hidden content. Hello guest!

By doing these things, we will be acting in harmony with Jesus’ prayer, to the glory of Jehovah’s name and to our eternal happiness. Hello guest!

    • predict: "say or estimate that (a specified thing) will happen in the future or will be a consequence of something." However, although the word "prophesy" is offered as a synonym for the word "predict", I would see this definition as inadequate when relating to the word prophesy as it is used in connection with Jehovah God (Is.46:10),  or anyone to whom the words at 2Pet 1:21 correctly apply. I submit that the words of 2Pet 1:21 actually cannot apply to any of the so-called "modern day" Jehovah's Witnesses, in fact, specifically, no one since the apostle John (although it is conceivable that a Christian with the spiritual gift of prophecy may have outlived him for a short time). So, with that out of the way, and on the basis of the definition provided above, I would say in answer to the question originally posted (which is hopelessly general), quite simply "Yes. As able as anyone else is."  Now this opens up the question and may actually need it's own thread. Take care to phrase it specifically!
