Re: You read the Bible?

I read the Bible every day. If you read 3 chapters a day you can read through the Bible in a year. I've been doing this for some 40 years. And I always find some new gem.

TWMC

Anyone remembers a group of JW's working outside of the JWs called TWMC (Two Witnesses Must Come). They had a presence on the Net in the 1990s, using various forums. They published THE REPORT. Apparently they believed they were of the anointed and had much to say about the Society's leadership and t...

Re: Rev. 13:17 and Covid

I doubt the "mark" is anything physical. The mark of the beast to me seems to be "loyalty" to the beast, which is on people's foreheads and hands, just as the seal of God is said to be, yet we're not waiting for God to come down from Heaven and tattoo us, right? I agree, the Mar...

Re: Rev. 13:17 and Covid

People outside AU, have no idea what is going down here. There's so much misinformation and lies being told in the mainstream media, down under. It appears that AU and NZ are trial grounds for what is planned for the whole world. To say that it's chilling, is an understatement. For several reasons,...

Rev. 13:17 and Covid

I have always associated the Mark of the Beast with Papacy , (I know some will disagree) but I couldn't help but but notice Revelation 13:17, which reads .... "so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark--the name of the beast or the number of its name. so that they could not buy or...

Re: Watchtower Pyramid Monument Desecrated and Removed

I believe Russell was sincere. Do I believe he believed he was "That Servant" of Matthew 24? He probably did, but his humility prevented him from claiming it. He stated that he was just a man and not to follow him but the Scriptures. He never had a fascination with the Masons, yes, the ear...

Watchtower Pyramid Monument Desecrated and Removed

Sad to say that the Pyramid monument that was erected by the Society in the 1920s at United Cemetery in Pittsburgh, PA was desecrated just a few short weeks ago. Someone took a hammer to the Cross and Crown emblems, removed the top stone and removed one of the sides. With all the disgruntled ex-JW's...

Re: "MEN'S HEARTS FAILING THEM"

Indeed, humankind keeps on repeating, never learning from previous mistakes. We end up creating the pattern where we left off decades ago. Currently the same political situation re the US now as was back then re your post. :mrgreen: Not only that ... but too often they think they can do a better jo...

I was curious what angle your post was taking. What was the point of the quote.
Russell believed that eventually the United States would become a Socialist nation, he believed that Socialism would lead to anarchy and eventually leading for the Kingdom to take over.

"MEN'S HEARTS FAILING THEM"

The following comes from Reprint 4258, which is the October 1908 issue of Zion's Watch Tower . It is a quote from the Washington Post . Remember that the polling numbers are 1908, but it certainly seems that history repeating itself. "MEN'S HEARTS FAILING THEM" "Daily it becomes more ...
