One of them was a 23 year old sister at her witnessing cart, she was stabbed in the throat and died very soon thereafter :   Read more:  

So upsetting As soon as I saw the cart clearly visible in this photograph of the aftermath of this awful attack we wondered if any of the brothers & sisters had been targets. Hardly any coverage i

I've followed this story right from the beginning & it is 100% correct The sister's death was reported on JW.ORG but seems to have been taken down.

This man tried to save her - he was interviewed by the BBC The attacker appears to have targeted this sister by the cart 1st before stabbing other women.

@Julie Bayley I see what appears to have the colors of the JW logo and some form of picture but it does not quite look like a cart. It looks more like a garbage container to me. Do you know if there is a better picture somewhere?

This is the link that was put up on JW. org

https://www.jw.org/en/news/releases/by-region/finland/jehovahs-witnesses-offer-comfort-after-attack-turku/#?insight[search_id]=97da99fc-578e-46f9-927c-6fd76aca5c29&insight[search_result_index]=

This article is still posted.  Also, it was a general announcement a few weeks ago at our Kingdom Hall that they let us know, the organization was having a special meeting in Finland to discuss this attack.   The photos you are seeing on this post are on CNN, NBC, all the national big new carriers from the USA and all the big ones in Europe that carried the story. Could be all over, but I only read English.  

This is not the first time a witness was killed. It is by far not the last. There are many countries were are hunted and persecuted, jailed.  This will continue until the end.  "Then people will hand you over to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all of the nations on account of my name. "  Matthew 24: 9.   This is the Sermon On The Mount.  Matthew 24 is an excellent chapter in which Jesus taught his followers about the time of the end.  

Maybe you can clarify as to what you mean by more factual?  Are you looking for News posts?  It was a shock in Finland, as it is known for low crime in general. But two people died there that day, another person who was in the crowd.  Many were stabbed.  

As a Jehovah's Witness, we know and are taught we are NOT exempt from the terror, pain, sickness, yes and attacks of the world.   We ask for Jehovah's  spirt in the name of Jesus Christ, to comfort us and to give us endurance. We know this world is temporary.  Someday, we will see our sister again!   If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer. Please post.  Thank you, Kristy

@Julie Bayley Yes I too have been following this event. As well as others. I noticed some discrepancies in the story. I find that the names of the victims being withheld is suspect. Then the paramedic is said in the bbc article to have been stabbed 4 times in the neck and chest and yet in videos he only has his arm in a sling and a few bandaid gauzes on his arm. Those are contradictions. Also an 'eyewitness' on a radio program said it was a huge knife but the person could not describe the attacker. That is suspicious right there. Then I saw in a video a woman on the scene as a paramedic laughing with a group she was standing with near the fire trucks. Then we have the arraignment 'hearing' where the media was allowed in. If you saw that video the 'attacker' was supposedly in the hospital. What you saw was a tv screen with the attacker under blankets and the lawyer had a Picture in picture screen covering his face. That again is suspicious. All the authorities looked guilty on tv as well. Like they are involved in a scam.

Then the day after the attack the org put up a 'breaking news' article but then took it down only to replace it weeks later with the recent one.

This whole thing has a stench about it.

@USASister I pretty much explained what I mean by more factual in my last post. I am an avid current events observer. I have been seeing alot of news reports that just are not actual real events. This one has the same oddities which leans to not having any credibility. This could have some pretty serious implications. In order to know what I am talking about one has to really check out the current events called news events and check for oddities in them. Only then can one know what I am saying. Until one does that they will just accept what they are being told from tv.

@Kurt Thank You Kurt, I looked at the sources but none of them seemed to name the victim. Also that photo on facebook could be anyone there is no way to confirm her as a witness. If she was at a Kingdom hall then maybe that would be better proof. Maybe I missed something due to the language differences.

    • Definitely should try the Bond roll here when you get a chance: this is a mom and pop place that does a great job  
    • An interesting concept, bible discipline. I am struck by the prevalence of ignorance about spiritual discipline on "Reddit." While physical and mental disciplines receive attention, the profound impact of spiritual discipline on a person's physical and mental well-being is often overlooked. Is it possible to argue against the words of the Apostle Paul? When he penned those words in Hebrews 12, he was recognizing that there are moments when an individual must be "rebuked" in order to be corrected. Even Jesus himself established a precedent when he rebuked Peter and referred to him as Satan for failing to comprehend what Jesus had already revealed to the apostles. Did that imply that Jesus had an evil heart? Not at all, it was quite the opposite; Jesus had a loving heart. His need to correct Peter actually showcased his genuine love for him. If he hadn't cared, he would have let Peter persist in his mistaken ways, leading to a fate similar to Judas'. There is a clear emphasis on avoiding the apostate translation and its meaning, yet many seem to overlook the biblical foundation for the reasons NOT to follow the path of the fallen brethren or those with an apostate mentality. Those individuals have embraced the path of darkness, where the illuminating power of light cannot penetrate, to avoid receiving the righteous discipline based on God's Bible teachings. They are undoubtedly aware that this undeniable truth of life must be disregarded in order to uphold their baseless justifications for the unjust act of shunning. Can anyone truly "force" someone or stop them from rejecting a friend or family member? Such a notion would be absurd, considering the fact that we all have the power of free will. If a Witness decides to distance themselves from a family member or friend simply because they have come out as gay, who is anyone within the organization to question or challenge that personal sentiment? It is unfortunate that there are individuals, both within and outside the organization, who not only lack a proper understanding of the Bible but also dare to suggest that God's discipline is barbaric. We must remember that personal choices should be respected, and it is not for others to judge or condemn someone based on their sexual orientation but should be avoided under biblical grounds. No one should have the power to compel an individual to change their sexual orientation, nor should anyone be forced to accept someone for who they are. When it comes to a family's desire to shield their children from external influences, who has the right to challenge the parents' decision? And if a family's rejection of others is based on cultural factors rather than religious beliefs, who can impose religious judgment on them? Who should true followers of Christ follow? The words of God or those who believe they can change God's laws to fit their lives? How can we apply the inspired words of Paul from God to embrace the reality of God's discipline? On the contrary, how can nonconformists expect to persuade those with a "worldview" that their religious beliefs are unacceptable by ostracizing individuals, when God condemns homosexuality? This is precisely why the arguments put forth by ex-witnesses are lacking in their pursuit of justice. When they employ misguided tactics, justice remains elusive as their arguments are either weak or inconsistent with biblical standards. Therefore, it is crucial to also comprehend Paul's words in 1 Corinthians 9:27. The use of the word "shun" is being exaggerated and excessively condemned by those who reject biblical shunning as a form of punishment. Eph 5:3-14 NIV 3 But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people. 4 Nor should there be obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking, which are out of place, but rather thanksgiving. 5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person — such a man is an idolater — has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.  6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God's wrath comes on those who are disobedient. 7 Therefore do not be partners with them.  8 For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light 9 (for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) 10 and find out what pleases the Lord. 11 Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them. 12 For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. 13 But everything exposed by the light becomes visible. The impact of the message becomes significantly stronger when we emphasize the importance of avoiding any association with unrighteousness and those who remain unrepentant. In fact, it becomes even more compelling when we witness how some individuals, who dismiss biblical shunning as a method of discipline, excessively criticize and condemn the use of the word "shun". Therefore, Jehovah's Witnesses do not shun people; instead, they choose to focus on the negative actions being committed, which is in accordance with biblical teachings. This should be construed as ex-Witness rhetoric. Now, let's consider why ex-Witnesses specifically target one particular religion. What justifications do they provide when other Christian denominations also adhere to the same principle grounded in the Bible? Chapter 1 - Preface Both must therefore test themselves: the one, if he is qualified to speak and leave behind him written records; the other, if he is in a right state to hear and read: as also some in the dispensation of the Eucharist, according to  custom enjoin that each one of the people individually should take his part. One's own conscience is best for choosing accurately or shunning. And its firm foundation is a right life, with suitable instruction. But the imitation of those who have already been proved, and who have led correct lives, is most excellent for the understanding and practice of the commandments. "So that whosoever shall eat the bread and drink the cup of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of the bread and drink of the cup."  It therefore follows, that every one of those who undertake to promote the good of their neighbours, ought to consider whether he has betaken himself to teaching rashly and out of rivalry to any; if his communication of the word is out of vainglory; if the the only reward he reaps is the salvation of those who hear, and if he speaks not in order to win favour: if so, he who speaks by writings escapes the reproach of mercenary motives. "For neither at any time used we flattering words, as ye know," says the apostle, "nor a cloak of covetousness. God is witness. Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome as the apostles of Christ. But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children."   (from Ante-Nicene Fathers, Volume 2) Divine promises 2. The manner of shunning, in the word escaping. There is a flying away required, and that quickly, as in the plague, or from a fire which hath almost burned us, or a flood that breaketh in upon us. We cannot soon enough escape from sin (Matt 3:7; Heb 6:18). No motion but flight becomes us in this case. Doctrine: That the great end and effect of the promises of the gospel is to make us partakers of the Divine nature. (from The Biblical Illustrator)  
    • Clearly, they are already demanding your exile. Yes! It's unfortunate that Pudgy spoiled a great discussion about science. I hope the discussion can continue without any more nonsensical interruptions. Just a suggestion since they are on your heels. Wow! You speak! It seems you have a lot to say! Now they are going to treat like, who do you think you are, mister big stuff! Are those aliens now going to imply that anyone who speaks out against the five or six key contributors to this site will be treated as though it is George just because those in opposition speak the language they hate to hear, the TRUTH? They are seeking individuals who will embrace their nonconformist values and appreciate what they can offer in shaping public opinion contrary to the established agenda of God and Christ. Their goal is to enhance their writing abilities and avoid squandering time on frivolous pursuits, mainly arguing about the truth they don't care for. They see it all as a mere game, even when leading people astray. They believe they have every right to and will face no biblical repercussions, or so they believe. They just want to have fun just like that Cyndi Lauper song. Be prepared to be belittled and ridiculed, all the while they claim to be angels. Haha! By the way, please refrain from using the same language as George. They appear to believe that when others use the same words, it means they are the same person, and they emphasize this as if no one else is allowed to use similar grammar. It seems they think only they have the right to use the same or similar writing styles. Quite amusing, isn't it? See, what I just placed in bold, now I'm George, lol! Now, let's leave this nice science thread for people that want to know more about science. I believe George left it at "Zero Distance."
