Re: Listen Obey and Be Blessed

I doubt a singer of his calibre would publish a song that he hadn't secured the rights to. The Org is relentless in guarding their copyright. If they do nothing, then that speaks for itself. It would mean just another example of hypocrisy.

Re: Is Jesus Michael

Kerry,

I look forward to your final objection. I hope this is the one where you attempt to prove conclusively that Jesus is Michael.

Re: Is Jesus Michael

Kerry Huish contends: Objection 1: That the phrase, "one of the foremost princes" refers to a comparison between Jesus and the demonic princes. This is a matter of opinion as is my understanding that it refers to his standing among his angelic peers. I don't think I can prove my view with absolute c...

What’s the difference between the Roman Catholic hierarchy, the LDS quorum of 12 apostles and the WTD governing body?
In terms of the identity of the Antichrist, I don't see a difference.

Re: Jer 33:22 & the 144000

I was hoping you wouldn't mind elaborating a little more on this "lifting the restriction on partaking in 2007." Actually the "new light" concerning the "governing body" comprising the entire modern manifestation of the faithful slave class was one of the teachings that began to wake me up to the d...

Re: Jer 33:22 & the 144000

A fascinating reference! Thanks for sharing this, Apollos. Rutherford pushed for a literal application of the 144,000 because it allowed him to create a clergy/laity class. This became somewhat blurred under Knorr because there were not enough "anointed" JWs to take the lead. When the Governing Body...

Re: The Cross: Prophesied

One thing which JW.org has only recently got right--though they continue to ignore their own directive--is to disqualify any antitypical fulfillment as invalid unless it is specifically applied in the Bible. The human brain is an order machine. It is constantly trying to make order out of chaos. Tha...

Re: Why Satan Would Want to Kill Jesus

>>Compare Eph 6:!2 - the 'rulers' that Paul is talking about in most of his letters are dark supernatural forces in opposition to YHWH.

I'm curious to know on what this assertion is based?

Re: New GB Member Kenneth Cook ("Breaking News"?)

I note they appointed a new GB member. What I found more interesting, in an odd kind of way, was that they posted it as "Breaking News" on jw[dot]org. I typically think of the term "breaking news" as something reserved for unexpected events as they are unfolding and the facts are still coming in. I...
