Re: Is the Governing Body the Wicked Slave?

At the Baltimore assembly Brother Franz in his closing remarks made some interesting comments regarding the year 1975. He began casually by saying, “Just before I got on the platform a young man came to me and said, ‘Say, what does this 1975 mean? Does it mean this, that or any other thing?’” In pa...

Re: Is the Governing Body the Wicked Slave?

God forgive me I can only think of one reason. “But if ever that evil slave should say in his heart, ‘My master is delaying,’ and should start to beat his fellow slaves and should eat and drink with the confirmed drunkards," The Governing Body is beating those of my generation who remember all...

Re: Governing Body, Governing Body, Governing Body...

This is no different than any other denomination that promotes itself and their work. Of course those of us that have been in for any amount of time can see right through it. The video makes it look like "look at us and see what we have accomplished" leaving out all the details.

The conflict between faith and doubt is the great reality of the time in which we live. Never before in human history has so much tragedy been witnessed in such vivid display to so many.

The Fork in the Road

It is inevitable that at some point in time every Christian comes to a fork in the road in regards to their faith a point in time in which they must choose between either accepting the wisdom of men or that wisdom which comes from above, the wisdom of God. This is a pivotal test in distinguishing be...

Re: Would it not be better to be Jesus' witnesses?

Why did the WT organization decide to call themselves Jehovah's witnesses, but not Jesus' witnesses? In the Christian Greek scriptures we can find many times that the first Christians were foremost Jesus' witnesses. Should not Christians today be the same? Truth is … The Jews are the True Jehovah's...

Re: Who Is End Times Israel?

Romans 11 really changed my understanding from the current JW understanding, though the founder of WT taught that the Jews or Israelites still had a special place to play to fulfill Bible prophecies. RR144, do you know why Russell believed that? Russell believed it because he read the same scriptur...
