How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I credit the Watchtower magazine. I have been a Bible reader for most of my life, but very few people and religions actually prove what they believe and practice with the Bible. This is a regular method of teaching in the literature. I have a deep respect and appreciation for the Governing Body for that reason.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    The Bible, science, history, computers, the media, and just plain reading
  • My favorite books
    Anything related to the above.
  • My favorite music
    I like the newest kingdom songs, also, easy listening, classic rock and r and b But I am open to any genre except most "gospel" and rap/hip hop.
  • My favorite movies
    My Fair Lady, To Sir With Love, Jesus of Nazareth, Giant, The Bible (in the beginning- John Huston as Noah was a magnificent choice)
  • My favorite quotes
    I could quote scripture copiously, but I found this impressive quote on a friend's wall which I now know came from Mark twain: “Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like its heaven on earth.” That last bit is not true for many, but making the best out of what one has, I think, is the point there.

  1. https://www.theworldnewsmedia.org/topic/37158-is-this-the-end-of-blood-donation-scientists-close-to-unlimited-supply-from-stem-cells/ This article touts the idea as the solution for shortages of blood for transfusions. But it still accepting blood from another person, right?
  2. Do we hear about the welfare of our brothers in China?
  3. Maybe they schedule them for Mondays in order to encourage weekly family study...? Many families (including my study group) will play it on Roku. It is a refreshing treat for us. The Bethelites have their family WT study on Mondays, and then they share those encouraging comments with their assigned congregations on the weekend. But having to wait so long this month for JWB is a real exercise in patience. I believe we have gotten a little spoiled!

  5. We do see in the scriptures how Jehovah can effectively maneuver things so that the greatest number of people can get an effective witness. He did that with Egypt, making his name well known wonderfully. Exodus 9:6
  6. https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&rurl=translate.google.co.uk&sl=ru&sp=nmt4&tl=en&u=https://jw-russia.org/faq/3.html&usg=ALkJrhgvBPrpkIBDwgL2V9CWk7QllqaVvA This is the article posted in January on the site giving 4 reasons why JWs are not extremists. Clear, sensible, documented logic.
  7. Our God is almighty. He is the God who sent a single angel to completely devastate the Assyrian army of 186000, and the one who sent the Prince of Israel to lead 3 million of his people through the Red Sea on dry land. Some of that 175000 are of the anointed. He sees, and he can save, if it is his will.
  8. The hearing will begin at 11:00. Can we keep track of the start of the hearing in US time, like EDT?
  9. "Coreligionists"? They're my brothers and sisters. And that family who was being honored for outstanding parenthood of eight children, follows a faith that supposedly protects child molesters? I am not a child molester,and I read the same lessons as they do, as do eight million others. I appreciate how the Australia hearings clearly demonstrated the difference between accusation and truth, also between associates or relatives and dedicated Witnesses. Whether or not he meant to, Putin or whoever set this up provided a different answer to those who accuse Jehovah and his teaching.
  10. Preaching to All Sorts of People We really want to imitate our God, To be impartial, as we know he is. To save all sorts of people is his will; He welcomes all to come and to be his. (CHORUS) It’s the person, not the place; It’s the heart and not the face. God’s message to all people we extend. So because we really care, We keep preaching ev’rywhere: “All sorts of people can become God’s friend.” Jehovah is your name Jehovah, Jehovah, There is no God like you. There’s no other in the heavens Or on the earth below. You alone are God Almighty, And this all men must know. Jehovah, Jehovah, We have no other God but you Jehovah My God and Friend. Life in this world can be hard. Life in this world can bring tears and pain. Still ev’ry day I will say, “My life is not in vain.” (CHORUS) For God is not unrighteous, And he remembers the love I’ve shown. So he is ever near me; With Jehovah, I’m not alone. Yes, God is my provider and my protector down to the end. Yes, Jehovah is my Father, My God and Friend
  11. My guess is that if that ever happened, the brothers would make sure that the entourage could sit together. But in our congregation, those who have assignments sit in the front row. At least they (the fake news writers) did not have him give a speech. During pre-election days, politicians would visit churches to give their statements. In a congregation that I was in, a politician called the Kingdom Hall to do so. The brothers very tactfully declined that offer, no doubt giving scriptures.
  12. The name of the one who posted this is Wilfried Peezenkamp . The comments on his youtube page are in Dutch, and a commenter called him Mr. (thanks to Google Translate). But the WTS videos are in his playlist, in Dutch. He is probably a brother.
  13. Hee, hee - I am not sure that Charlton Heston would enjoy that mailing. Oh, he wouldn't care, he died 9 years ago... Good reminder.
