    Lyrics to the July JW Broadcast song: (compliments of Brother Chew) I'm Not Alone Abandoned and betrayed, Forsaken and alone, Despair my one companion, My heart within me like a stone With no one here for me, No kindly word of care, Who’ll offer consolation? My heavy burden, who can share? I’m not alone; I never was. I’ll never be, And all because Jehovah knows; Jehovah sees. He hears my prayer; He’s here with me. Whatever comes my way, I’m never alone. Whatever I may lose By sticking close to you, No matter who may fail me, I know you’ll never be untrue. You’re close to me, O God, And never far away. My faith, my hope, reliance? — I know you never will betray. I’m not alone; I never was. I’ll never be, And all because Jehovah knows; Jehovah sees. He hears my prayer; He’s here with me. Whatever comes my way, I’m never alone. I never was. I’ll never be, And all because Jehovah knows; Jehovah sees. He hears my prayer; He’s here with me. Whatever comes my way, I’m never alone.

    Music because it evokes memories and emotions like nothing else can. Dogs because they give unconditional love and loyalty.

    I love flowers, I love birds too, but I sure do love puppies. I love babies too, and people, young people, old people, I can't decide. Mountains are wonderful, sunsets, so many things to love. I most of all love the prospects of a New World where I can enjoy all these things except "old people". What a wonderful father we have. Nice topic.

    I’ve been thinking about Jehovah’s wonderful creation and what makes me happy. I love flowers but I think my favourite thing is birds - specifically parrots. Their colours make me feel happy and they are so clever. Truly wonderfully made. So so what’s your favourite and why?

    My secret is out - I am a cat-lover! Having two American Ragdoll boys in our family, I am rather partial to all things “cat”. . . . . . so my recommendations are. . . .

    Religion - History

    If I may offer my humble view of 'religion' - take this word down to its brass tacks Greg and follow what Rudyard Kipling says: "I keep six honest serving men: They taught me all I knew: Their names ar What and Why and When and How and Where and Who." (example used in this months broadcasting) So let's take religion on an interesting journey: What is religion? Religion is the putting first of something in your life ... ie: Money could become your religion Sports Or Religion based on the scriptures or other creeds. Why? Because fundamentally, mankind either consciously or subconsciously recognizes that they have a spiritual need, so spend time fulfilling that need either with valid or invalid pursuits. When? When something moves their heart to the point they become passionate, it may not always be tangible or reasonable, but it is something that adds depth to their lives and gives some meaning. How? By how they dedicate their money, their possessions and their time, conveys what becomes their religion. Where? Where they find like minded ones who have developed the same passion, usually if the foundation of their 'religion' is weak, they will bounce from one religion to another. Being in a world controlled by Satan, often their hearts are trained towards patriotism to the point of religious fervor. They may not call it religious, but it is no different to the fervor one shows towards Jehovah, when considering the basics. Who? Because mankind has a limited knowledge on a wide range of subjects, it doesn't take much for someone to come along and seemingly answer their unanswered questions, and even seem miraculous as in the events of cults. Iconic sports stars evoke worship and adoration and truly become their whole core of somethiing that seems to make sense to them. Rudyard Kipling also said something else very intersting: "If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten" So religion for people tell a story that appeals to their hearts, their ideals. The Idol series for instance ... uses stories to appeal to the audience of contestants who have had a hard luck story almost like they are creating a 'god' who has their respect and if successful possibly even their worship. So Greg, you could concentrate on the conventional view of religion and base it on historical religions that were often used to consolidate Kings and Queens and hold the common people in captivity ... or you could concentrate on the wider definition where idols can creep in to lives of even those who vehemently despise 'religious' people.

    This talk was so eye-opening for me. Another talk that I really appreciated was "What is Faith?" That was a morning program. I know Heb.13 tells us what it is but I wanted an explanation "in one word or less!" 😊

    It's speculated Moses had access to Noah’s logs. https://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/2003361 WHILE giving the prophecy about the sign of his presence and of the conclusion of the system of things, Jesus said: “Just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be.” (Matthew 24:3, 37) Clearly, Jesus foretold that what is happening in our day has a parallel in Noah’s time. A reliable and accurate account of the events of Noah’s day can prove to be an invaluable treasure. Is Noah’s log such a treasure? Does it have the marks of a true historical document? Can we really determine when the Flood occurred?

    Noah did not write Genesis, Moses did many years after the flood under the direction of Jehovah’s Holy Spirit. 1. It was Jehovah that guided the animals to the ark. 2. It was Jehovah that caused the flood 3. It was Jehovah’s will that they swarm out after the flood to the whole earth (Gen 8:17) 4. It was Jehovah that said he would “wipe from the surface of the ground every living thing that I have made” 5. It was Jehovah that had recorded that every breathing creature perished (Gen 7:23) I have not seen anything to the contrary that would prove this didn’t happen as is plainly stated in the Genesis account. There are viable explanations for the repopulation of the planet of various animals even in Australia and New Zealand. I see no reason to confuse ourselves by getting an explanation that disagrees with what the bible says or trying to explain clear bible sentences to fit with my own interpretation of scientific evidence. To me that is pointless and not really in any bodies interest.

    Wm, you keep trying to twist what the Bible says to fit so-called "science". You won't be able to for the most part.. Because science is man's thoughts and the Bible is God's.

    And this is the problem. The available evidence. The available evidence is not enough to support your theories, either. If it was, the scientific community would be in agreement with your findings. They aren't. Your theories, while they may be correct, are still just unproven theories. I've stated before that I find your hypothesis on the mechanisms used to cause the Flood intriguing. That doesn't change the fact it's still just a hypothesis. It's just your opinion and it's an opinion not shared by many in the scientific arena. The available evidence the scientific community uses simply is not enough to support the Biblical account. Scientists reject the Bible. They do not support it and go to great lengths to discount the Flood as merely myth, legend, or a localized event exaggerated out of proportion.

    See the thing is the bible says Gen 7:23 So He wiped every living thing from the surface of the earth, including man, animals, creeping animals, and the flying creatures of the sky. They were all wiped off the earth; only Noah and those with him in the ark survived. You are right it is only talking about land And flying animals here but after talking about these types of animals it says only Noah and the animals on the ark survived. The bible does not say only Noah and those with him in the ark survived (and also a few other animals that escaped on drifting things) The bible is quite clear and unambiguous about the account. Is it too much to think that divine intervention was involved afterwards? After all the whole flood account was an act of divine intervention. This would fit with the bible account more closely and the faithful slaves thoughts on the matter. Anything contrary disagrees with the bible and our publications which is a dangerous road to go down.

    Thursday, July 5 Brothers, continue to rejoice, to be readjusted, to be comforted, to think in agreement, to live peaceably.—2 Cor. 13:11. Continued effort is required in order “to be readjusted” and manifest “the new personality.” Paul reminded fellow believers: “You were taught to put away the old personality that conforms to your former course of conduct and that is being corrupted according to its deceptive desires. And you should continue to be made new in your dominant mental attitude, and should put on the new personality that was created according to God’s will in true righteousness and loyalty.” (Eph. 4:22-24) The expression “continue to be made new” indicates that putting on the new personality is an ongoing process. This is encouraging, for it assures us that regardless of how long we have been serving Jehovah, we can keep making progress in cultivating and refining the Christian qualities that make up the new personality. Yes, the Bible can continue to change our life. w16.05 4:8, 9

    Agreed. It was a great JWB. To me, it really demonstrates further our reliance on the Bible, and the ability to use critical thinking when reading the Bible.

    I must add this month's music to my cd repertoire and put it on "repeat"! I have a feeling I'll be needing this song in the very near future as well as the courage to sing it out loud (or in my heart!)
