I'm aware that the Watchtower organization presents this understanding of the two horned wild beast of Revelation 13. What I am curious about here LRW is exactly why YOU would promote it? Y...

Re: WHEN Will the Lord Return? (Matthew 24)

There's a lot to unpack here with this post of yours lamesa; so I would like to simply begin with your initial statement in this case. lamesa wrote: "It should be plain that the Bible nowhere clearly predicts the time of Christ's return." The first thing that comes to my mind when I encoun...

Re: Am I Forgiven?

The first thing we need to do in order to even BEGIN to understand what is being conveyed in Romans 6:1-7 is to factor in its setting. This is a setting that simply DOES NOT APPLY to us in the time period we find ourselves in even also at this very moment. In stark contrast with the situation WE cur...

Re: Am I Forgiven?

First of all, based on these verses in Romans alone it should be rather clear that the Bible is ultimately speaking of more than one kind of death, and by extension more than one kind of resurrection. What is more, the deeper one would earnestly and prayerfully delve into the scriptures the more the...

Re: Change on Adultery

Experiences like the one you shared here (vintage) seem to be increasingly common with the organization, even though I have not had any direct contact with it for around 8 years now. Every time I hear of them I'm reminded of scriptures like Jeremiah 8:11 that speaks of this ..."breakdown of the...

Re: Am I Forgiven?

As I have already demonstrated with the scriptures, any logical thought sequence in connection with them quickly exposes serious problems with the current teachings on this topic of divine redemption from sin and its deadly consequences that were delineated for humankind from the very start.

Re: Am I Forgiven?

Thanks for the heads up on that CI. I did actually see that post but it appeared to me for some reason that lamesa had continued at least momentarily to continue posting, so I wasn't quite sure what to make of it. Perhaps I was mistaken. Anyway since this is certainly an important Bible topic my int...
