Dear Librarian I have a JW neighbour who lets his dog to go out without any supervision. For what I see this dog goes in the streets looking for food. He must not feed him.Isn't this animal cruelty? How he can pretend to be a ministerial servant if he is

Oh dear SM you are still whinging like an old woman. 

Never knew you were the type to make jokes about old women, and you are an adult. I guess some childish antics never truly leaves someone. The fact you even ignore the severity of CSA shows you are unaware.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

The big difference between the two is :-

No there is no, there is CSA in both. CSA has been a problem in institutions and online. What planet do you live on to assume there is a difference. recently some children were lured and raped by an abuser online. As pointed out, abusers will exploits people and tools to access children. Stop being dense, JB.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

he Jehovah's Witnesses say they are the 'one true religion' and they pretend that people need to be in that religion to be 'saved'.

How is this information relevant? And according to past threads on here, it seems you had missed the plot entirely.

For a former Jehovah's Witness, you seem to not know too much about your own former faith compared to most.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

So, JWs deliberately go out and canvass to bring whole families into their religion.

And? How is this relevant?

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

They use fear mongering to frighten people into the religion.

Not really.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

And they pretend that the JW Org is a safe place to be. 

Not really, granted with why I coined Anna and JWI before, you are just spinning your wheels here.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Unfortunately the JW Org is like a whitewashed grave.

And how is that? From what I have been seeing, they are still active, likewise with their similar Lone Christian counterparts, one of them I had shown before.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

It looks nice and clean from the outside, but it's unclean the inside. 

So why are you trying to counter what I said before about no one being immune? Contradicting yourself, I see despite the fact I pointed this out numerous times.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

People are tricked into joining the JW Org, and therefore are in danger both spiritually and physically.

Not really. Kathgar is a JW and his history was that it was his choice to become one of JWs, granted he came from a Muslim background. Clearly because of this change, not everyone was happy, granted everyone has a choice. His own family assumed the ISIS situation was the result of him converting to Christianity, which, if you learned about what truly happened, it is different.

Even in the pandemic, there are more people seeking God, and most turn to JWs, even some of the children I use to deal with, and I always told them, if someone speaks truth in regards to the Bible, follow your heart on it and test the spirit, hence why I often quote 1 John 4:1. Ironically enough, even some former JWs returned to their JW churches to be reinstated; even from indirect actions from their own kin.

And this misconception was debunked a long time ago.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

I don't see anyone going door to door telling people to join Facebook, or pretending that FB is a true religion.

No one said Facebook was a Religion, it was brought up that Facebook is also effected by the Child Sex Abuse situation.

It seems you keep saying this to defend Facebook, you even ignore the grooming situation.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Adults should be wise enough to know how to use the internet properly. 

The Internet is a separate entity. Facebook is a Social Media Platform.

You were told several times that anyone with bad intent can use social media to commit ill acts, hence the Hammer analogy.

Ads also play a role in the abuse of children too.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

And i would guess that even you use social media including Facebook.

I don't. It is already known I am not a fan of Big Tech as is Section 230 that Facebook will most likely be following. You sound like a Leftist Lib with that remark to someone who is not part of the Paradigm.

I am 100% not a fan of Section 230, and a foreshadowing role it played in regards to a CSA incident at a School.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

But we will never know because you hide behind that 'mask'. 

I don't hide behind a mask granted it is already know my view of Big Tech and Section 230. Hasan Piker would make the same assumption twice in a row, despite him being a hypocrite.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

We can only agree that yes, CSA is everywhere earthwide.

Then why try to challenge the fact, even ignore CSA can happen on social media despite me pointing it out numerous times, even now?

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

But unfortunately You are such a control freak that You seem to tell me that i cannot have my own opinons and cannot have my own Christian conscience.  

Control freak? That is cute.

I merely put what you said in the same realm in where CSA exist. And we are now seeing how jumpy and whiny you are because of a small question.

The question has nothing to do with opinion or a Christian Conscience. It was more so an application in this sense of a problematic issue that came forth from sin.

On 11/5/2021 at 1:59 PM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

I am not angry with you, I just do not understand your attitude. 

You appear angry, mainly the last response, in which going full cap puts that in display.

That being said, to be unaware or compared to Piker shows how low you have gotten, just from one question, resulting in unnecessary deviation.

That being said, Facts outweighs many things, in this sense, and unlike you, I am not ignorant that abusers can use social media to prey on children, more so to the point I pointed out your own has issues in this regard, including recent events.

@Pudgy Well what @Equivocation said is true. Even in Haiti for a time as well as Dominican Republic, some folks, my family included, had animals running around the property such as goats, chickens, etc. The problem in some cases that it isn't about training and caring about the animal, but also you have to protect them as well. Likewise in my Father's country of Belize. Stealing livestock was an issue, so you would have to setup protective measures.

More so, even in the states, some people did this to some degree with smaller animals. Believe it or not, some unusual pet choices such as a pig or a sheep on dog/cat leashes you can find. If you want to get really outlandish, there is some uncanny choices such as the images shown below

@Space Merchant you seem to have a follower, @Equivocation

But both of you deliberately avoid the true issue.  When you both stop your fingers typing rubbish and when you both sit and think, then you might just get a little understanding of the true issue.  But I won't hold my breath as I can see that you both don't want to understand truth, and there is none so blind as those who do not want to see. 

But he is right about what he said. Nobody can have full immunity to child abuse, not even us, not even Facebook. The best one can do is prevention. One can't act like child abuse cannot plague social media, when this was the case for years. Space's claim is going back to some things you said, specifically your discussion with Anna a while back, he cross-examined you saying if you can leave Jehovah's Witnesses from 3 months of research, why not the same for Facebook.

TBH, you kind of walked into that one; a cross examination. Besides, some of us here, know very well how crazy child abuse is on social media. And that is actual truth. Animal abuse too, which is very bad on Facebook, since FB live has many loopholes.

I don't think he said anywhere that Facebook is a Religion so I don't see why you went with that. He just said Facebook is plagued with child abuse too. He was quite logical about it.

SM, i see you one again misquote me deliberately by splitting up my sentences in to tiny pieces.  This is quite funny because it follows the GB / Watchtower in it's ways of misquoting people.

You don't 'see it' because you don't want to see it.  SM was comparing the JW Org to Facebook.

That is comparing a religion to social media. 

The big difference is that I was actively promoting the JW Org. I am not promoting Facebook, i am just using it. 

If you cannot see the difference then it's because you do not want to see it.

He can't see the forests for it's trees. Someone who is aware of CSA being earth wide would not pretend as if CSA does not exist in social media, and his own statements is the reason I recalled the racisms thread and the thread with Anna coining a few points. It is fare worse compared to the schools, churches and homes, mainly due to the fact predators can use the platforms to manipulate, i.e. learn a child out with Minecraft, be it game or community. As of recent, one community in question had reinstated one of their members after he got rehab. Although he did not take action on a child, his communications were suspect. Then there was a situation where he nearly took his life, and the like.

That being said, it was a cross examination of his own statement. See a simple question results in total deviation and defense mode, not to mention a few appeal to motives and ad hominems, which proves the case of specific former JWs.

On 11/16/2021 at 11:02 AM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Didn't compare them both, if you looked at all my comments I stated both have CSA. You tried to equate Facebook to a religion.

On 11/16/2021 at 11:02 AM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Religion was not compared, it was only stated CSA exist in institutions and social media. Can you show me where I stated otherwise here and in regards to all statements on CSA?

On 11/16/2021 at 11:02 AM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Which is irrelevant. The point is in regards to your remark to Anna, for if you can leave JWs for CSA, if the institution of platform was different, would you do the same, yet here we see you whining up a storm.

On 11/16/2021 at 11:02 AM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

I am not promoting Facebook, i am just using it. 

Which can see seen from the start, but going with the question itself, which you avoided to answer, would you do the same. You were asked this 4 times, then you constantly shoehorned GB or whatever into the mix for no reason and tried to attest to the idea Facebook is compared to a Religion.

Such delusion.

Something I proclaim for months on here, why would I say anything different? from what I see, you, a Facebook user is trying to absolve them as if the situation of CSA is not as serious.

On 11/16/2021 at 11:02 AM, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

If you cannot see the difference then it's because you do not want to see it. 

He does see it, that is why he, and others would point out the same thing.

Next time when you say something, especially in your discussion with Anna, say something you live by, not drop at the slight of hand.

That being said, already debating with Leftists, I don't need the appeals and ads from a Big Tech Solider.

On 11/15/2021 at 8:59 PM, Equivocation said:

@Space Merchant So do you suppose people need to do more in the Awareness Department for Animal Abuse on Social Media? Seems as though everything and everyone is grouped. But we won't have that soon since Facebook is taking a VR route with..... Wait for it....

The Unaware do not know the meaning of Awareness, for if you recall last time, a specific person stated what you conveyed was a form of Activism, which is not. AS to why he made the comparison? Pure ignorance. VR will be both a blessing and a curse, and as with all curses, imperfections plant the seeds in order for it to grow. Anyone who takes pleasure in CSA or Animal Abuse will exploits any new Technologies and Resources to their benefit. Mainly due to the fact that even those who favor sexual immorality has been utilizing VR for immoral practices, and sadly enough, such ill use of Technology has teenagers and children using them with friends and or strangers.

If you are familiar with the movie Ready Player One, the body suits in relation with VR are legitimate and real, although not like that of the movie, but it is similar.

Example below:

CodeMiko, the most unique streaming experience » Esports

It will com to a point where, the usual child abuser will exploits such Tech for their own benefit, even to the point of voice manipulation to trick some people.

That being said, granted Tech is my expertise, the majority of us, mainly us millennials when it comes to Tech kind of saw this coming. The foreshadowing of all this began with the PlayStation 4 whereas many people, even kids were receiving content from adult brazen conduct.

You are a fool SM, but unfortunately you seem to be misguiding a younger fool too. 

There is a massive difference between JW Org, and, Facebook. 

Yes they both have CSA. Yes they both try to hide the CSA. But Facebook is just a tool, just like a telephone. It is a means of communication. Would you ban all telephones ? Pedophiles probably comunicate by mobile / cell phone. 

But unfortunately you are so proud, so head strong that you need to be right. So if you think you are right, be happy with that. But you are still a fool. 

I will continue to use Facebook for it's good points. Whereas I don't know any good points about JW org. 

It is still quite funny that you say you are not a JW.  You seem to love them so much.  How can you love an organisation that promotes CSA by hiding Pedophiles in it ?

How is saying otherwise? It was said that both experience Child Sex Abuse and they are not immune. You've been told this many times, even by others yet when your goose gets cooked you want to defend a so called tool when your own words is used against you.

You already failed once you deviated from the question asked numerous times.

4 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Not one mentioned hiding, it was only pointed out several times they are no immune. Facebook can't hide CSA, however, their actions simply made itself exploitable.

Bad example. A Telephone is a device, not a platform.

And?

Missed the point made several times. However if you are referring to Smart Devices, a Smartphone (Telephone seems old school), it can present some level of danger. This is why it is encouraged for parents to educate their children, as is enable any safety protocols.

Granted all apps/games are associated in the social space, such as Tiktok, Snapchat, etc, as is their parent, Facebook, it is strongly advised for the parents/guardians to take protective measures.

Those who fail to do this, often ends up with either of the following, addiction (Validation seekers aka Clout Chasers via the child and or their guardian(s) - Example - Lil Tay Claire Hope),a rebellious child, spoiled even, and in worse case scenarios, the child can be subjected to predators luring them, asking them for various deeds that are brazen, as is there is a pandemic in regards to sexting, as is an abundance of pornographic content made by even the owner of the device.

This also leads to even that of the Dark Web, in which not only people's information can be marketed there, but also some level of their data. Even emails can be found there, perhaps yours.

In other instances, there has been results of, missing persons, injury, and death, even rape when it comes to such things.

17 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

But unfortunately you are so proud, so head strong that you need to be right.

It is against culture and faith to be prideful, full of pride, and never displayed such. I would break culture even for that, but it looks as though you continue with appeals to motive and ad hominems that make no sense.

That said, this is all factual, mainly in my case, in which I have high experience in the field in question, so I know what is going on, and even the facts concerning such, when it comes to safety of the youth, even taking care of youth and teaching them on how the Internet and or Platforms can present a level of danger if one isn't careful.

The problem here is when your own words is used in relation to Facebook, you are quick to defend yourself. Everyone else seems calm because never once they made the statement you made, hence why I take no issue with them. But here we see you are very adamant, even you confused real life with social media, a problem.

22 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

So if you think you are right, be happy with that.

Because these are facts.

22 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Of course, I am a fool because I recognize CSA on Facebook, perhaps a fool because I do not make a silly statement you did, which landed you in this position.

All bark, but no bite, you are. For a guy who cries about CSA, yet when you were told what you have done in regards to that, you had nothing to say.

And perhaps still even after 3 months of research no doubt.

24 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Which is irrelevant, but it seems 3 months isn't enough of someone was being abused on Facebook Live. Your tool. The same tool that was also responsible for a list of events in the past 2 weeks.

27 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

It is still quite funny that you say you are not a JW. 

Any? Because I can see the facts, I am not as one sided as you are.

28 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

You seem to love them so much.

This ahs nothing to do with liking them or not, it is in regards to the facts and truth about Child Sex Abuse. You pushed the narrative as if they do not know these things, even attest to ARC, yet at the same time, some of them are aware of CSA, Anna made a remark towards you in the thread you made an absurd statement in, Eqvo, JWI and a list of others, especially JWI. For months into years you complain yet do nothing, even when asked, you are as sheeple as the Media when it comes to these things, even when Case 29 was presented you didn't know even though you brought up ARC. You believe CNN on their remarks as is NYTs. Not to mention, you believed both a conspiracy and a book from a person who dwells on Spiritism.

Therefore making you both a Big Tech Solider and a Shill, in a respectful regard. You do not seek for grounded discussion and when it was said you can't handle a debate, this is true and fact because look how far this thread as gone from a small question, by your hand and your hand alone.

For an Ex Jehovah's Witnesses, you are no different from the Magic Hands guy from London, or that of a Leftist. To quote Mr. Kel, he made claim that most former Jehovah's Witnesses who fall into apostasy are often to ones heavily misguided, and Kel himself is quite neutral with JWs. I believe you hit that narrative.

34 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

How can you love an organisation that promotes CSA by hiding Pedophiles in it ? 

No one said anything about loving a group, it was pointed out JWs have a CSA problem and they're not immune. Yet you become a church mouse by the mention of Facebook.

Typical Big Tech Solider, for good reason you can be called that and another Piker.

A man of God uses discernment to look for what is true, you, do not do such a thing.

I used Facebook today to contact the 'Council', that is the government department that own the house i live in. 

I used Facebook to contact my Bank a couple of days ago. 

I use Facebook because businesses use it. I use Facebook because my family use it.  

Facebook is a tool to use sensibly. You are a fool if you do not know that. 

Sorry SM but Facebook has become part of real life, just like using a telephone.

Bit Tech Solider is related to someone who defends something when his own word is used against him, in this regard, a platform. The term fits. This term is unique.

Again, these things are factual. Nothing more.

You may see the name as silly, but it proves the point with you running for your own statement when the spotlight is on a platform.

You are influence by the Left and the Right, that is why I said you are acting like a Leftist Lib.

33 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

You call it rubbish, but this is indeed the truth. The "Magic Hands" guy, a former JW himself, complained about Jehovah's Witnesses in order to win a debate in London's Hyde Park, something of which I mentioned before to you specifically, and he only lost because he came speaking about things that does not whole a candle to the truth and he kept going on about misinformation and falsehoods, not to mention his strong hold for the Triune belief. Which makes Kel's statement absolute fact about most former Witnesses, such as yourself.

Quote

I also posted evidence of former JWs who clearly do not know what is in the Bible and are quick to speak badly about them, examples like Magic Hands, Bob the Builder, and the 3 men who believes the Holy Spirit is a person.

Brother Kel, who does not hold to any denominational, even said it himself for those who leave JWs often end up adhering to the accursed, he himself is neutral with JWs.

You do not have to like or even agree with the religious leaders of JWs, but to speak of slander and or deceit, even pushing insult, infighting or conspiracy, a correction will be made.

If you believe this not to be true, we can go back to the Strong's Concordances and your confusion, which is among several examples.

38 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

What are you talking about here ?

You tried to convince me, someone in the field, that Facebook is real life. You said it several times. However, the reality is, social platforms/internet isn't real life. Real Life is interpersonal connection with people, physically in their presence - Realism.

Social Media cannot replace Realism, be it with a person and or an animal, pet, etc.

40 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Social media has become part of real life.

Not it has not. Pixilation vs. Physical Interaction are two different things.

40 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

You are not being specific. Are you referring to a Smartphone or a normal phone? Regardless, it does not replace Realism.

41 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Irrelevant. But the point was made already to you.

42 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

And? This is communication via a social platform. Legitimate person to person communication is vastly different. Interesting, you don't own your own property.

44 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

I used Facebook to contact my Bank a couple of days ago. 

Clearly not a person to person interaction. You can simply go to the bank and speak to the person. Communication with a bank in that matter, you are merely a simple customer. Facebook to contact your bank... You do realize potential risk because communication in that matter, with sensitive information is not private to a degree. You could have easily used your telephone for that, but then again, you ignore risks, as do the majority of the unaware.

47 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

I use Facebook because businesses use it.

Of course you do, because your business uses it, you comply. Should you do anything otherwise, let's just say the cult of the Woke is strong in the UK as well. That said, how is this relevant?

48 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

I use Facebook because my family use it.  

And? Surely a well knitted family uses more of their time via physical communication with each other.

50 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Facebook is a tool to use sensibly.

A tool of which even with your own words concerning research you cowardly go around the question brought forth.

Facebook considers you a tool also, since your information is being marketing without your knowledge, which is ironic due to the privacy thread you brought up a while back.

51 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

You are a fool if you do not know that. 

I do know that, but the problem here is your own words in relation to the question. I find this comical for you saying this, yet you stated telephone without specifics.

52 minutes ago, Patiently waiting for Truth said:

Sorry SM but Facebook has become part of real life, just like using a telephone. 

Pixels, subnets, and bandwidth can't replace real life.

A device cannot replace legitimate real, heartfelt, thought provoking communication, especially communication that strengthens the family, the households, binds them and or builds up a people and community.

Then again, I would not be surprised if you become a candidate for the Metaverse.

That being said, next time watch what you say because that was easily used against you concerning Facebook. Luckily that thread from when Anna mentioned such is still intact, therefore, going forward this in conjunction with Facebook + your words, can be used against you.

    • Just once I’d like to see a Pharma ad in which the actors, rather than acting out the touted benefits of the drug, instead act out the side effects of the voiceover—gasping, clutching their throats, turning blue, hair falling out, doubling over, dropping dead, straining on the toilet to ‘go’, swiveling about in dizziness.
    • Journalists who go rogue often do it for me. https://www.thefp.com/p/npr-editor-how-npr-lost-americas-trust RFKjr is turning out a fine source as well. Look how he says 60 years ago most people (80%) trusted government and now 90% do not: https://x.com/vigilantfox/status/1777710201937732085?s=61&t=fM8K_zHB-Zw9l_mM_4QHqg
    • My overall point is that most Witnesses I know in the United States are very political and don't even know it. Often much more political than their neighbors who vote. There are certain limits to what we will say about our political views, but I think we don't recognize that those political views often come out inadvertently in other ways. In fact, I've seen strong political views among Witnesses who only use the line "we don't take sides in politics" when they wish to shut down an argument they disagree with. My parents and many relatives were of the type that said they wouldn't be fooled by all the lies and exaggerations from MS-NBC supposedly on the "progressive left." Nor the lies and exaggerations from FOX News on the supposedly "conservative right." But that didn't stop them from being fooled by thinking that CNN was not mostly "state-sponsored media" that would cherry-pick stories now and then to keep up the ruse that they weren't. As long as they continued to support corporate sponsors, including "Big Pharma" and "Big Military Industrial Complex," it was clear what side they were going to take. And although Trump was golden to all networks for his ability to spout controversy, one of his biggest sins for CNN was the fact that he went 4 years without getting the USA involved in any new wars.  We were watching CNN once, not on purpose, and although many segments were introduced with "Brought to you by Pfizer" one was introduced "Brought to you by McDonnell-Douglas." As if any of us watching were about to go out and buy McDonnell-Douglas fighter jets and missiles for accessories. Of course, even the segments brought to you by Pfizer weren't really for any of us to be swayed in our pharmacy choices, either. As with all corporate media, those ads are really just payments to CNN; they are all just a way for corporations to PAY (bribe) the news writers and commentators to realize on which side their bread is buttered. They are merely buying influence. ---- All this was probably just my own rationale to excuse my own tendency to throw in opinions about politics, politicians, and the mainstream corporate media. There are no easy answer to how someone should go about getting their news, or how to feed their own opinions. But I would be happy to hear about the various sources people use when trying to find the "truth" about various world events. 
    • Here was the general conversation, skipping a part where I had just explained how 30,000 Palestinians, largely women and children, had been killed, and the majority of major news outlets were still equivocating about whether Israel had gone too far. But when mostly "white" aid workers were killed, suddenly Nancy Pelosi (friend of the aid organization founder), Joe Scarborough, Elizabeth Warren, and a bunch of others turn on a dime to stop giving Israel a free pass -- embarrassing their own man Biden.  THEM: Well, anyway, we don't take sides about literal Israel, and we don't discuss political sides of who supports whom. ME: But that last part is just information, even history. THEM: History is one thing but the Bible says don't speak against the King. What's that it says in Ecclesiastes? (Ecclesiastes 10:20) . . .Even in your thoughts, do not curse the king, and do not curse the rich in your bedroom; for a bird may convey the sound, or a creature with wings may repeat what was said. ME: Yeah. That's where we get the expression: "a little birdie told me." Basically, it means that someone on Twitter will turn you in. Or all the government agencies will be listening in on Twitter.   THEM: Very funny. You mean "X." ME: Yeah, but they still call them "tweets." THEM: But still we don't take sides, we don't even say anything against any ruler, whether he's good or bad. We only pray that they make decisions that are good for us.  ME: I don't think it's wrong to say something against a ruler. Don't you think Hitler was a bad ruler? THEM: But he's not a king now is he? He's dead. ME: I mean even when he was alive. THEM: Well, of course, because he was attacking Jehovah's people. ME: But it would have been wrong to say he was bad while he was attacking millions of Jews? THEM: [changing subject] But look how respectful Paul was talking to Felix, he never said a word against him. ME: Maybe not, but Luke tells us he was probably looking for a bribe. That's pretty negative. ME: continuing . . . And Jesus called Herod a fox. THEM: Well maybe he was "foxy" -- "crafty" not always a bad thing. ME: You don't believe that . . . and even if it was a good thing, then Jesus was taking sides. THEM: Anyway . . . it's wrong.
    • The conversation went like this: ME: I'm just now seeing the new article on the front of jw.org, about whether Bible prophecy points to literal Israel. That seems to be on everyone's mind. THEM: Absolutely. One of my studies just asked that question and I went through the usual scriptures, especially Galatians  6. I hadn't seen the article yet. I wish I had. ME: Yes, the article uses Matthew 23:37 "your house is abandoned to you" and Galatians 6, and Romans 11. THEM: I think I used Romans 11, too.  ME: I just noticed that the article says one thing that might be confusing though. “A dulling of sensibilities has happened in part to Israel until the full number of people of the nations has come in, and in this manner all Israel will be saved.” (Romans 11:25, 26) . . . By the expression “all Israel,” Paul meant all of spiritual Israel. ME: continuing . . . Actually, I don't think that will make sense to most people though. I mean, ultimately, yes, it's spiritual Israel that is saved. We know that from Galatians 6, but in this context people are going to notice that Paul actually was speaking about the two olive trees and the LITERAL Gentiles getting grafted into the tree representing LITERAL Israel.  THEM: But it means all of spiritual Israel will be saved. ME: That's the only way it works out in the long run, yes. But doesn't it make more sense that as many of literal Israel as possible get saved because it's these people of the nations who now have Jehovah's blessing, and this makes some of natural Israel jealous? And that helps lead to the salvation of as many natural Israelites as possible. (Romans 11:11) etc., etc. Who is right on this point is not important here, it's the next part of the conversation.
