How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    My mother came into the truth in 1969 when I was 6 years old. I got baptized when I was 12 in 1974 so I could "temporary pioneer" and have tried to be a faithful servant of Jehovah ever since. My prayer every day is to "endure to the end" with the rest of my worldwide brotherhood!

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    I used to have quite a few - knitting, cross stitching, playing piano but have pretty much given everything up. Life and all we need to do to keep spiritually strong in this system takes up most of my time now! Hate to admit it but I'm an avid Classic Star Trek fan and I think "Too Cute" on the Animal Planet Channel is one of the best shows on television to date!
  • My favorite books
    God's Word of course! Don't have time to read much else.
  • My favorite quotes
    The only way to keep the truth is to give it away.

  1. You know what's really amazing to think of - 1.5 billion light years away is such an immense distance as to be practically uncomprehensible to humans, yet a angel can probably travel that distance in less than a second of our time!
  2. There is no way they can tell just how far away these signals are coming from - really? - 1.5 billion light years away? You can't even comprehend that distance, let alone calculate that something came from that far. It's pure Hoooey to me!
  3. I've never seen that before! It was hilarious and so well made!
  4. Couldn't it be a pulsar from that far away? I thought they sent out signals of sorts.
  5. Well have enough Miejer's and Wal-marts around to keep us in combs for a very long time, let along the warehouses of the comb factories. There is an interesting verse that also has a future fulfillment in Isaiah 33:23 that says: Your ropes must hang loose; their mast wil not hold firmly erect; they have not spread a sail. At that time even spoil in abundance will have to be divided up; the lame ones themselves will actually take a big plunder". Here is what the Isaiah book, Volume 1 says after quoting that scripture: "Any approaching enemy will prove to be as ineffective and helpless against Jehovah as a warship with loose rigging, a wobbling mast and no sail. The destruction of God's enemies will result in so much spoil that even disabled ones will share in taking plunder. We can therefore be confident that through the King Jesus Christ, Jehovah will triumph over his enemies in the coming "great tribulation"." I always felt that Jehovah would not be wasteful when it came to preserving resources we could still use after Armageddon. Why would he destroy things that would be helpful to us or things we would need? (we all need combs!)
  6. I think Jaadou is coming back (reference to an Indian moive (Koi . . .Mil Gaya) most probably won't get it).
  7. Just another way that Jehovah protects his people - we have had warning after warning about playing violent video games and watching violent movies and while the main purpose is that it keeps our relationship with Jehovah intact - for these brothers it can also serve a very practical purpose of keeping them out of prison!

    Baptists Sex Abuse

    1 in 400?!!! I don't like those numbers at all.
  9. I am thankful that this guy isn't out to actually kill someone. Seems like he goes to great lengths to do this when our meeting places are completely empty. I am just worried that for each Hall he gets away with destroying, it emboldens him to continue, moving out of the current county he has been doing this in to other areas.
  10. I can see him being the spouse of a believer who is very disgruntled because now his spouse puts Jehovah above him.
  11. Thank you for reposting this information Svetlana!!!!
  12. Whoever this guy is, one this is abundantly clear - he picked the wrong religious group to mess with. No lifeless idol guards our people, no statue made of wood is looking over the sheep who gather inside these buildings!!! So glad this is happening when no one is meeting there - the guy is obviously a coward.
  13. Funny, I was just thinking of that this morning. I would like to get proficient at using Google translate so I can write brothers and sisters in other lands to encourage them (like Russia). Maybe someone who is good at using it can start a topic to help the rest of us use this great tool properly to help us get our main thoughts through in an understandable way.
  14. If you look at my original post, I asked people to PM me if they were interested in befriending her. A very sweet, loving and understanding sister has reached out to her - this brotherhood never disappoints!
