Re: Which Bible books should be canon? (66 vs 73+)

I appreciate your input GoH. I do want to take caution of course, as whilst there does seem to be prophecy in some of these books, others, as I've said, contradict other books and others have proven to be scholarly inauthentic. The scriptures likewise warn us about false prophets and false writings,...

Re: Apostolic Succession Scriptural?

Thought I'd post this video on the topic, since many different churches, the Catholics and JWs especially tend to practice this doctrine. There is some very good reasoning here which deconstructs the doctrine as seen tradtionally by Catholics, such as the ordination od Bishops and Priests via laying...

Re: "God", "gods" & "angels"

I forgot to say that I saw a JW apologist using Nehemia as a "proof" that the NWT is correct, very sad. Ahh yea. There are positives and negatives to the NWT, same with all translations really, it's hard to escape bias. If I had the credentials I'd love to assist or work on a translation project of...

Re: "God", "gods" & "angels"

and they fail to realise that just like today, cultures often shared terms and manner of speech across their languages. Yes! in my language, we use the english word "Shopping" to refer to our Malls, yeah it's weird. :lol: It is possible however according to Nehemiah Gordon, that "Yahweh" is a name ...

"God", "gods" & "angels"

I've just finished up writing my article today on the terms "God, gods and angels". In this article I discuss the original meanings of those words, how they have changed over the centuries and why. I show how the original word for "God" does not refer to Almighty God or even a "deity" by definition,...

Open Letter/Plea to Jehovah's Witnesses | "It's still the Truth because..."

This is an open letter I wish to write to Jehovah's Witnesses who may be aware of the flaws of the Organisation and/or the Governing Body, but feel that "it's still the Truth" or "it's still Jehovah's Organisation". I write to you as a brother in the most genuine and heartfelt way. In the spirit of ...

Re: To the Angel of the Congregation in Sardis write

It appears that no sooner had Jesus given his life freeing them from sin and death (Jhn 5:28,29) and ascended to heaven that some of his disciples reverted to their old ways of thinking about sin and death. (cf. Jhn 5:29) I'm not sure I understand, are you trying to claim John 5:29 is not inspired ...

Re: Rev. 13:17 and Covid

It seems to be a US cultural thing, because the US as a nation was founded upon the idea of "Freedom", when really there has never been such a thing, freedom from the British Empire sure, but not from the government. That has never existed. But US history and the god-like importance of the Constitut...
