Re: seems covid has been good for the organisation

My observations: - huge JW logo in picture - he said "good to be back again". Apparently it is not the first interview - one question leads to an answer of 5 or more minutes - clear that the organisation leads all congregations and their directives are to be followed - increase mentioned whereas the...

Re: Help!!! The Jehovah's Witnesses BLOOD POLICY perplexes me.

Hi Sevenz and welcome from me too :-) Regardless your view on blood for medical treatment, and whether a Christian is allowed to use it, it is good to consider the following verses: 1 Cor. 6:9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually ...

Cities of Refuge

I guess most of the readers on this forum have heard and read about the so-called cities of refuge. Lately I searched on Google for reference to such cities and the concept outside the bible. I did not find it. I find that strange as multiple cities were involved, it was a legal concept and would th...

Re: Interesting Stuff

Though I disagree with WT doctrine on blood, I also have to disagree with the arguments that abstain from blood is grammatically wrong. According to Oxford Dictionary: ​abstain (from something) to decide not to do or have something, especially something you like or enjoy, because it is bad for your ...

Re: Does Covid 19 even exist?

As with other viruses, I believe this COVID-19 also exist, though be aware this is not one virus. It is a family of coherent viruses as they change themselves. Same as the Flu or SARS. I guess the overall question is: do the measure that most government apply justify the risks related to this virus....

Re: Intentional omissions or intentional insertions?

You can also have a look here for other translations: https://studybible.info/compare/Luke%209:55-56 The fact this is not found in some MSS but in many it is found, does not mean it is secondary or not correct. Like the WT translates according to their agenda, so did many other translators. The word...

Re: The Satanic Superbowl

Just heating up the discussions a bit as to me it seems that in particular (ex) JW's are very sensitive about Satan and his presumed presence in the world. But just consider: if both JHWH and Jesus allow Satan to live (for centuries, millenniums) and allow him to do whatever he wants, why should we ...

Re: Scientism - Religion without morality

The fact that the details (ie the numbers) come from the Bible is what you have an issue with. It is not the first time that I am either misunderstood or people believe to understand what my issue is :D The videos are nice. Nevertheless, 1914 in my view is actually not a topic found the bible and o...
