Re: "Nothing short of a modern day miracle"

"We are most of all concerned with the sanctity of life ..."

Come on Robert, pull the other one. You are, and always will be, most concerned with your public image.

I find this stuff hard to watch these days.

Thanks for sharing Stanger.

Re: The Trinity: Given by God or Sourced by Satan? (A Commentary)

PoJ After a little research I have to acknowledge that the prevailing view out there seems to agree with you that prayer is an act of worship. That is unless you're a Catholic and want to justify praying to saints I guess. So I think you have a decent point there. It doesn't change my stance at all,...

Re: The Trinity: Given by God or Sourced by Satan? (A Commentary)

I think you may be forgetting that "worship only God" is not the only restriction we are under. The reason I don't pray to anyone other than God is based on the Bible injunction not to communicate with spirits and/or the dead. By this standard, the Apostles sinned and so every other proph...

Re: The Trinity: Given by God or Sourced by Satan? (A Commentary)

I don't think it's ok to pray to someone who is not God, but I still don't think it's synonymous with "worship" - whether latreo or proskuneo. I find this personally to be a contradictory statement. If prayer is not worship, then it should be ok to pray to anyone. Saying otherwise would i...

Hi PoJ I don't think it's ok to pray to someone who is not God, but I still don't think it's synonymous with "worship" - whether latreo or proskuneo. Yes, Jesus gave an example of prayer, but I requested you show me a scripture that says that Jesus says you must ONLY pray to the Father exc...

Re: The Trinity: Given by God or Sourced by Satan? (A Commentary)

Now is it wrong to want to speak to Jesus? I don't think so, and I can't judge people who want to call out to him, Stephen did when he saw him moments before dying, though that was due to the fact that he literally saw him in front of him. Some Bibles insert the word "prayer", but the Gre...

Re: Revelation – Where we are in the stream of time​

Why the state of Israel should be fixated on Iran is a question only they can answer. Are you serious? I think I'd be fixated on a heavily armed neighbor that has threatened to remove me from existence. Since it has only just sunk in that the disgusting thing is the Greek LXX translation that remov...

Re: UK Financial report WT

Hi Menrov Thanks for sharing this and the Canadian one. I don't know about "income on construction" I'm afraid, but something that caught my eye was "Cash Generated from Operations". In 2019 it was £445,431 (so peanuts in WT terms), but in 2020 it was £43,595,840 (that's a lot of...
