Re: Who is to Partake of the Bread and the Wine

Good point Menrov Hadn't thought about how an outsider would view it. I recall inviting someone one year and they said "is that it we just get a sniff of the wine" ? It made me think it was a bit strange but I had been indoctrinated to believe we just sat & observed. I keep coming back to whom was J...

Re: Who is to Partake of the Bread and the Wine

Thank you for your replies. One other thought is this to be commemorated once a year- or as often as we want to remember that Jesus died for us? I also feel the date of Nisan 14 or 15 seems to uncertain when I have research when the Jews celebrate the Passover. Especially as JWs are supposed to go b...

Re: WT July 2017 Study (Pecuniary) Edition

It's more than a shocker!
Nicely written Kopernicus.
Worse WT so far - there are still are few more to be issued before the year is out!

Re: Child protection in the scriptures

I cannot find scriptures to say of an age that is acceptable for marriage. However, when researching what is acceptable across the US and Asia it seems girls as young as 12 can marry.

Re: Shunning

Thank you Marina
I am getting over it so to speak.
I have decided that I will stop attending now.I think my ministry too as it was a a FS arrangement I was treated this way- doesn't inspire one to go out - plus I feel I don't go out with the same purpose or message!

Re: Terror attack on Westminster

[quote="Amitaf"]Of course many JWs will think the great tribulation is breaking out!! :doh:
Not funny.
I do feel for those innocent people. There's a lot of truth when people say " live everyday as if it were your last " - you really don't know what is around the corner.

Re: Child protection in the scriptures

Sorry Menrov -

I will do some homework when in a better frame of mind and certainly share if I have something.

Thanks for reminder
