Re: OT vs NT

If you do not believe that the bible contains spiritual assets or truth that can be found. If you do not believe that these truths can be further found, refined and shared by discussing spiritual matters with spiritual people. Then you are self satisfied and unconcerned with spiritual things, total...

Re: OT vs NT

Hi Kerry, you said (partly): ....a complacent attitude with regards spiritual assets or truths. That statements is based on you conviction that the bible as you have it, contains spiritual assets or truth. I respect that. Nevertheless, consider the definition of "a complacent person" from Miriam Web...

Re: OT vs NT

Hi, I agree with Apollos, you will not find so-called THE TRUTH on this forum or any other forum or in any reglious organisation. It is all interpretation. Regarding your question if you have to observe the sabbath, (or any other practice), I prefer to say, it is a personal choice. If you feel good ...

Re: Why is SATAN still around

I am a father and I have a daughter. Imagine that one day a man breaks into the house, rapes and kills my daughter. I did not intervene to protect her as I wanted to allow people to be bad just to show I am right. And one day in some future, I will correct this event. What do you think of this? Fair...

Re: Election Of Believers

Just wondering. If you read these verses: 1Pe 1:17 And if you address a s Father the one who impartially judges according to each one’s work , live out the time of your temporary residence here in reverence. Jam 3:17 But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, accommodating, ful...

Re: Maths Virus 1914

:D it os not about believing in the bible, it is about universal consistency. A year to me should mean the same as to any other reader, regardless the background or religion or culture. That is the problem with the bible, it is open for multiple interpretations, which makes the contents unusable for...

Re: Maths Virus 1914

Hi Marina, I have difficulties to follow your logic. If we read that Adam lived on for a hundred and thirty years, what does this mean, using your statement: "The Bible uses lengths of time NOT DATED YEARS" I do not think there is one common approach in the bible regarding years. First, the person w...

Re: CLAM: Research, Notes, & Comments

Hi Bobcat and others, see also here: https://studybible.info/strongs/H7185 The example from NWT shows how WT (and about most JW's and probably other devout Christians) cannot accept that something negative is attributed to their God. All good things are because of God and all negative things are bec...

Re: Interesting Stuff

Bobcat, the CSA documents and history in WT land show that they (WT) do not care the least bit about the victims. It is all about legal position. If you think about this, you wonder how one can still support WT once you know about it.

Matthew 28:19[,20]

For some reason, I was thinking about Matthew 28:19. Did some searching and came across this: http://www.oocities.org/fdocc3/in-my-name.htm In short: according to Eusebius, who had access to a very early copy or may be even the original writing of Matthew. He states that verse 19 reads: Go ye, and m...
