  1. I agree with you wholeheartedly. No argument there, but I was speaking statistically, and I saw the two men arrested in this case happened to be 20 and 25 year-old black men. There seems to be, for whatever reason, a preponderance of evidence that this wicked system we live in produces or creates an inordinate percentage of young black men who prey upon the innocent in perpetrating these heinous crimes, without even a slight pang of conscience. What the reason is, I could only begin to speculate.
  2. Yes, it's a sick world that produces so many sociopathic young black men who can be labeled domestic terrorists!
  3. Exactly. It's called propaganda, and it works.
  4. Did anyone watch last nights episode? Once again, the writers promoted Satanic propaganda, designed to make those who adhere to God's law on the practice of homosexuality look like religious fanatics and those who have homosexual tendencies as helpless to resist or combat those wrong desires. It did it in such a way that made all those who reject homosexual practices as totally unbalanced and ignorant of the facts, and therefore portrayed the Bible and God's law as ridiculous and invalid in this enlightened age. By that I mean, the pastor they prosecuted, twisted God's word, went beyond what is written and was teaching his own doctrines related to homosexuality. To the educated masses, who are mainly Bible illiterate and cynical of religion in general, it was another example of how the Bible has been used to oppress, control and manipulate the naive and vulnerable who are either homosexual or homophobic.
  5. How does a young man in rural Arkansas compliment the girl on their first date? "Nice tooth!"
  6. As I've said on this subject before, anything short of full acceptance, is interpreted by the "gay community" as discriminatory and anti-gay. Tolerance alone is unacceptable in their view, and therein lies the problem. We don't promote, condone or embrace homosexuality in any way or form, and that's our right and duty, in harmony with God's view as clearly indicated in the scriptures. The push for acceptance didn't happen overnight and has been a long time in the making, as part of the Satanic propaganda of this world and its demonic influence, designed to squeeze us into its mold. Will we allow it to pressure us into conforming to its standards of sexual morality when it comes to homosexuality and how we view it? PROPAGANDA—HOW DANGEROUS IS IT? "What is propaganda? In this context, it is the use of biased or misleading information to manipulate the way people think and act. Some equate propaganda with “lies, distortion, deceit, manipulation, mind control, [and] psychological warfare” and associate it with “unethical, harmful, and unfair tactics.”—Propaganda and Persuasion. "How dangerous is propaganda? It is insidious—like an invisible, odorless, poisonous gas—and it seeps into our consciousness. Because we may not see propaganda for what it is, behavior specialist Vance Packard observed: “Many of us are being influenced and manipulated—far more than we realize.” Under its influence, says one scholar, men and women have been “quite easily led into the most preposterously dangerous behaviour”—such as ‘genocide, war, racist hysteria, religious intolerance and many other forms of irrational behaviour.’"—Easily Led—A History of Propaganda. "Now if mere men can fool us with their propaganda, what might Satan be able to do? He has studied human behavior since man was created. “The whole world” now lies in his power. He can use any part of it to disseminate his lies. (1 John 5:19; John 8:44) So effective has Satan been in ‘blinding people’s minds’ that he now ‘misleads the entire inhabited earth.’(2 Cor. 4:4; Rev. 12:9) How can you resist his propaganda?" --- w17 July
  7. "You must not bring the hire of a harlot or the price of a dog# into the house of Jehovah your God for any vow, because they are something detestable to Jehovah your God, even both of them." --- Deut. 23:18 Rbi8 #Likely a pederast; one who practices anal intercourse, especially with a boy. "Outside are the dogs and those who practice spiritism and the fornicators and the murderers and the idolaters and everyone liking and carrying on a lie.’" --- Rev. 22:15 Rbi8
  8. It looks like the women are wearing seamless panty hose under a semi-thong and the men are wearing a form of spanx. What's up with that? I'd like to see a follow-up video in present day titled "Where are they now"? That would be an eyebrow raiser, I'm sure!
  9. If my memory serves me correctly, I believe it was brother Rutherford who once said regarding opposers and their accusations, "If you stop to kick at every dog that barks at you, you'll never get anywhere."
  10. "For God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but one of power and of love and of soundness of mind." --- 2Tim. 1:7
  11. "For it is the appointed time for the judgment to start with the house of God. Now if it starts first with us, what will the outcome be for those who are not obedient to the good news of God? 18 “And if the righteous man is being saved with difficulty, what will happen to the ungodly man and the sinner?” --- 1Pet. 4:17, 18
  12. Fleeing one's country and living as a refugee in a foreign country, is seldom easy, as discussed in the Watchtower. "Jesus had foreseen that many of his followers would be forced from their homes. He said: “When they persecute you in one city, flee to another.” (Matt. 10:23) Fleeing for any reason is seldom easy." --- w17 May "Recently, thousands of Jehovah’s Witnesses—men, women, and children—had to flee conflict and persecution in eastern Ukraine. Tragically, some were killed. But most of them were taken in by their spiritual brothers elsewhere in Ukraine, and many others were accommodated by fellow Witnesses in Russia. In both countries, they remain politically neutral, being “no part of the world,” and continue zealously “declaring the good news of the word.”—John 15:19; Acts 8:4. --- w17 May
  13. I know this thread is supposed to be dedicated to false reports related to the "Letters to Russia," but is there no true media coverage or reports regarding the letters at all? Seems like someone is trying to ignore or cover up the elephant in the room. The only thing I've read on this forum is an unconfirmed report that the government officials, to whom the letters were addressed, have refused delivery and that the letters are being held in storage in a Moscow postal warehouse.
  14. I think Paul is alluding in vs. 29 to the fact that all those who are baptized with holy spirit are baptized into Christ's death, in that they embark on a sacrificial course ending in a death and resurrection comparable to Jesus'. As he says, "what will they do who are being baptized for the purpose of being dead ones?" and "Why are they being baptized for the purpose of being such?" They know going in, that they will have to sacrifice everlasting human earthly life and all earthly ties in order to receive a resurrection like his that requires their death, in one way or another. His letter to the Romans puts it this way, "Or do YOU not know that all of us who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?" --- Romans 6:3
