  1. Not exactly an experience from using JW.org. but a minor miracle in its own way. The angels have been active long before we had JW.org.
  2. I disagree with your statement above. "Nevertheless, true Christians do not use the cross in worship. Why not? An important reason is that Jesus Christ did not die on a cross." It's clear to me that the argument presented is that Jesus didn't die on a cross for these reasons ...... and "the most convincing proof of all, however, comes from God’s Word. The apostle Paul says: “Christ purchased us, releasing us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse instead of us, because it is written: ‘Accursed is every man hung upon a stake [“a tree,” King James Version].’” (Galatians 3:13) Here Paul quotes Deuteronomy 21:22, 23, which clearly refers to a stake, not a cross." Then it adds this additional reason as to why we wouldn't decorate our homes with images of Christ on a cross, "Since such a means of execution made the person “a curse,” it would not be proper for Christians to decorate their homes with images of Christ on a cross."
  3. Huntington Beach, aka Surf City in recent years. It was the closest and most accessible beach.
  4. I'm old enough that I can remember listening to this hit on my transistor radio, and everybody else's too at the beach in Southern California, as a young boy at the time. Good music, good times!
  5. His daughter singing the same song some 45 years later. Too bad she is also no longer living.
  6. A crooner from the past. Live performance on BBC from 1963. My, how things have changed!

    The Apostrophe - get rid of it?

    Well, I don't know, but maybe it would cause some to start pronouncing the possessive word, Jesus', correctly without the apostrophe, instead of the incorrect way, Jesus'es.
  8. "Also discovered was the home in which Maria Russell lived, 516 14th ave. N. She did, in fact, live with her niece Mabel Packard (deceased 1961 or 1962) who kept the same residence till her death and evidently had no children or other relatives known in the area. Also sharing the home residence was Mabel's husband Richard Packard (deceased in 1950's) and Emma Russell (1855 - 1929) who was Maria's fleshly sister and the widow of Joseph L. Russell, C.T. Russell's father. The four are buried on a "family" plot at the cemetery mentioned in the obit." Wow! According to this, C.T. Russell married his mother's sister, or aunt, who was only five years younger than his mother and two years older than him. It says his mother's name was Emma, but according to the Proclaimers book, his mother's name was Ann Eliza who died when he was only nine years old. So much for accurate reporting!
  9. I'd give this post a like for Mick and the boys, but can't stand the cover by sum 41. Sorry. 😧
  10. Old lions still roar! Glenn Hughes of Deep Purple fame.
