Church ‘shuns‘ 15-year-old, then father – ends up in court Posted by SDD Contributor on November 9, 2019 at 4:20 am   The Supreme Court of Canada hea

What do think of a country where Doctors can be forced to do abortions? I can't accuse the country, Doctors can quit or take their business elsewhere. Criminals of war were just following orders

court has jurisdiction to review the decision of a religious organization

I suppose how, for example, Statute or Charter of some institution, association, golf club, or charity as WT Society, must be according to state law, secular law.

When speaking about "Secular authority" as God's Servant,  that would undoubtedly mean how such sort of authority has Power over WT Society, congregations and members. If secular Judge make unjust or wrong decision, God will call him for responsibility, because Judge is JHVH Servant. Does WT Society and members believe in that? They have to wait for JHVH. Just be calm and wait, nothing more. God will repay them all injustice.

Ecc 8:9 ,,,man has dominated man to his harm. People are not made to rule over each other, but collectively, we were made to rule over God's creation. Gen 1:26 "let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every creeping animal that is moving on the earth.” to have secular Authority over someone else is not only presumptuous but dangerous. if it weren't for man giving up his authority by flowing the instruction of his wife who followed that of the serpent, you would not be looking for instruction. There is no real authority over man in God's creation. All those who claim authority over you, are actually under the authority of the one who led Moses out of Egypt, Exodus 4:3 "it became a serpent" (staff)  Numbers 21:8 “Make a replica of a poisonous* snake and put it on a pole" you can see how God always agreed with this authority that Man had put over himself. God has a dry sense of humor like some of us who understand how we are made of his substance. we are his image. Just avoid those who try to promote their rule over you. You are a god. . Psalm 82:6  “I have said, ‘You are gods, All of you are sons of the Most High. Just saying.

:)))) I can't recall what verse in Genesis about Adam and Eve in Paradise speaking  how God gave to Adam authority over Eve. I am not sure in what direction you going with next sentence:

I am not sure what ideology, idea you promote? or you just made parody on issue :))

Just came back from shopping.

 

If you want to re-align with your own purpose, you have to use your own inborn faculties without asking for direction. You already have God's spirit in you for as long as you breathe, so you just have to trust it and realize that all the pain that is inflicted on you is by your own permission. When you claim your divinity, people are going to bitch because they don't believe that they are gods so why should you? Either you choose to be a god or you choose to be a sheep that needs a leader. There is only one God and only one Son yet fragmented into billions of members all over the planet that have to be build into one living temple. 1 Peter 2:5 you yourselves as living stones are being built up into a spiritual house. Galatians 4:1 Now I say that as long as the heir is a young child, he is no different from a slave, although he is the lord of all things, 2  but he is under supervisors and stewards until the day set ahead of time by his father. 3 Likewise, we too, when we were children, were enslaved by the elementary things of the world. 4 But when the full limit of the time arrived, God sent his Son, who was born of a woman and who was under law, 5 that he might release by purchase those under law, so that we might receive the adoption as sons. 6 Now because you are sons, God has sent the spirit of his Son into our hearts and it cries out: “Abba, Father!” 7 So you are no longer a slave but a son; and if a son, then you are also an heir through God. Col 1:15 "He is the image of the invisible God the firstborn of all creation; 16  because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him and for him. 17 Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist, 18 and he is the head of the body, the congregation. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might become the one who is first in all things; 19 because God was pleased to have all fullness to dwell in him, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all other things by making peace through the blood he shed on the torture stake, whether the things on the earth or the things in the heavens. Just gets easier from here on. It is sort of funny though.

I do not consider myself a god, or a sheep.

I consider myself a "Sheepdog", whose NATURAL instincts and "function in life" is to protect women, and children, and my family, and all innocent people, and if necessary, to engage in mortal combat with others who try to harm them.

...this even makes the sheep VERY nervous, but the reason many of them are sheep is not a desire to be peaceable with all men, as far as it depends upon them ... but because they are naturally stupid, and or cowards.

Andre: I have no idea what your last two posts mean in the real world.

Fine ideas from Scripture, but irrelevant to this post.

If I have missed something, please explain it to me in short words, short sentences, and short paragraphs, .... in your own words.

Otherwise, it is just "white noise". ... like a fan running while one is sleeping.

The content of your comment is one of the best, or best of all, in this forum.
Because it talks about the elemental thing in life and for life.

Most of our comments are just philosophizing. Needed, but .....

What do think of a country where Doctors can be forced to do abortions, do LGBT surgery on young children and commit euthanasia  against their so-called conscience! 

I am sure they will find us liable - they are instruments of satan these days. When they go against Jehovah's laws,  we obey jehovah.   

Soon we will be facing persecution from these guys as predicted.  We are living in the last days. Soon they will take you to court if you refuse to sleep with someone.  I read about a case where a transgender wanted to sleep with a man. He called it a "hate crime"  when the man refused..... a very new morality will be forced on us.

Going back to original topic here. The man should not have 'put all his eggs in one basket' it seems.. 

It is sad that his business suffered though (if true) as his being shunned might have been 'punishment' enough.

I would have thought he would have had legal contracts for his business which would mean that customers would be under legal contract to continue business as usual. It does show the lack of love from JW's though, if they deliberately caused problems to his business.

Last week i experienced, in interval of few minutes, how two elders from another congregation respond on my look at them, accros the street, and giving greting with smile. Younger, son of older brother, returned with a smile. Few minutes later, two sisters standing with box and looked at woman with dog. I was walking beside them, again with happy face with looking on sister from my ex congregation, She returned with a smile on her face. …..Or maybe that was because of playing with dog :))))
