  1. A bit like ISIS damaging their own heritage, the only beautiful thing under their control aside from people. Johan
  2. The faith, which comprises 175,000 members in Russia and has been active in the country since 1991, has yet to receive the written decision from the court, which it needs in order to launch an appeal, something which it has said it will do. In the meantime, the group's bank accounts in Russia have already been frozen and most kingdom halls, where members gather for services and prayer, have ceased activity. Where local chapters have remained operating, an intimidatory police presence is being felt, said spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia, Yaroslav Sivulskiy.“We expect that the police will be very active to interrupt meetings,” he told Newsweek Tuesday. “We've already started to receive reports in some places that meetings were disrupted. They take personal data, like copies of personal identity, of who was there. And after that, they let them go, but they want to know who attends those meetings.” Johan The faith, which comprises 175,000 members in Russia and has been active in the country since 1991, has yet to receive the written decision from the court, which it needs in order to launch an appeal, something which it has said it will do.

  3. I like the quote in the beginning. Some people have stopped consuming mainstream media because they consider them all fake news. This is dumb. But it would be even worse if you believed everything such media houses publish. (Not to mention click-bait stories...) Johan
  4. After a while. But the US will not be the dominating world power forever. So I think it would be unwise to believe they'd be spared from any of the things that would mark the last days. It will more than likely be a walk on the edge where people eventually will see no way out. Johan

  6. I don't tolerate that you do things like this and call yourself a Jehovah's Witness. That position is far too treasured by me. One day, she might come back though. For now, this is not something a Witness does, and it is humiliating when she does it in public and still claim to be a witness. Am I judging? I don't think so. I do not say she is a hopeless case deserving of some kind of judgement I'm not equipped to dish out. Had king David not repented, he would not have been accepted either, and a claim to be a servant of Jehovah something that would make true servants of Jehovah feel disgust. Until he changed his ways.

  7. It has happened to world powers in the past. It could happen again. Johan

  9. If an unbaptised person raised in the truth were to lead an immoral life and perhaps even be in the public eye all the while claiming to be a Jehovah's Witness, do we have the right to react with indignation? Johan
  10. There's propaganda and politics. The US wants to make others believe they are good, and that since they are good they can handle nuclear weapons so that bad nations don't. But they are neither good nor innocent. Neither are they afraid to use propaganda in every way. So whenever the 'badness' shows it's face, it is used in enemy propaganda. The ship mentioned above is stationed in the North Korean capital and serves as a propaganda tool where kids are taught the evil of the enemy and the strength of the people who could capture the beast. Oh, and some is made up, but that's the nature of propaganda on both sides. Johan
  11. It must be so annoying to Putin and his friends that at least 175000 of his people love and fear Jehovah the Almighty God more than him. If Jehovah says preach, it doesn't matter what Putin says... Johan
  12. They do, as far as I understand, claim to be Jehovah's Witnesses, and I am critical of them taking that esteemed name in vain in the public eye, proving by doing so that they are not Witnesses of the superior way of the Almighty. But, when they repent and return, they will be welcomed. Johan

  14. People in this territory where I live who claim to be Jehovah's witnesses but do not show it in their lives are no witnesses. A Witness is something you become by your actions and obedience. She is welcome back when she wants to (if indeed she was ever baptised), but until then she is no Witness. Her focus is her game, not the Kingdom. Johan
