Re: Interfaith - Should We Avoid Worshipping At Other Church

I've really enjoyed this thread.
Your posts make me think of John 13:35

Hi

I agree.
I thought that immortal means you have ability to keep living without relying on Jehovah but He could kill smeone immortal if required.

Re: Faithful and discrete slave - Luke

Hey Nightingale good post I think
I just read Matt 24 and 25 straight through.
Reading the whole chapters instead of just 1 or two selected verses changes your whole perspective.
Its like a penny drops and its seems to be so simple and straightforward - we just have to keep awake until Jesus comes!

Yeah it would be a dream come true.

I hope he comes soon and gathers all Christians to him.

Re: Bible Reading -Proverbs 4:20

Hi jo-el Thanks for your explanations...I like your post and agree. It seems to me then that no oragnised religion today that I know off fits the informal mold you describe existing in the 1st century. Do you think we will see an explosion of informal type congregations, meeting in houses before Arm...

Re: Bible Reading -Proverbs 4:20

I agree that holy spirit is not garunteed to play a role in appointments of Jehovahs Witnesses. I've seen some cases where it turns out men are appointed while practicing gross sin. Also I can see from personal experience that for the vast majority appointed men do not act as slaves but rather domin...

Re: Bible Reading -Proverbs 4:20

GWIT has got me thinking.... A question - Is Titus 1:5 a top down appointment process? - Paul directs Timothy to appoint elders in congregations. Does this justify some kind of hierarchy? I bet Paul was viewed as highest in the chain followed by Timothy followed by appointed elders followed by every...

Re: Holding Pattern

To stay or go is probably the subject that causes me the most inner turmoil. On the one hand there is loads of holes in even the most fundamental of doctrines.
