How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    Via my fleshly brother, who was studying. The Truth hit me like a slap in the face! Finally everything made sense.
    My wife, Emma, and I were baptised 21st Sep 1991 at the Surrey Assembly Hall. (We now both have CFS and listen to the meetings over the phone. Our ministry is 'the widow's mite' and we are grateful to Jehovah for his understanding.)

    The Bible!

    The conclusion of the matter, everything having been heard, is: Fear the true God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole obligation of man. Ec 12:13

  1. A good joke

    About 30 years ago I said to a work colleague that chip miniaturisation was proceeding so quickly that within a couple of decades the name and address of everyone in the world would fit on a single chip. He replied “It would be a shame if somebody moved.”
  2. A good joke

    Hard drive from 1950.
  3. Stephen Hawking has died

    If the virtual particles are opposites how come the black hole always loses mass? Half would add mass, half would reduce mass.
  4. Stephen Hawking has died

    If he wanted to ‘know the mind of God’ he should have just asked for a Bible study. We know His character anyway. I remember him saying in the 1980’s that there was a 50/50 chance of discovering a Theory of Everything by 2000. It was obviously a bit harder than he thought. Now, if someone could just help me with my question about Hawking Radiation, ...
  5. If a kid on a plane is a bit lively then perhaps ‘handler’ would be appropriate.
  6. What was the abbreviation for these old Watchtowers? Because w12 was just 6 years ago etc.
  7. My off topic thread

    Sis Pauline, what is/will be your view on the usage of the word ‘presently’? https://www.thefreedictionary.com/presently
  8. Years ago I saw a demolition company and their logo was “Watch it come down!” I’ve used that for all sorts of my projects.
  9. There is a rumour that Apple will be releasing a new iPad this month at c. $259. https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/ipad-refresh-in-march-likely-as-apple-receives-certification-for-new-tablets-in-eurasia.2107004/ A benefit of JWLibrary on iPads is the 4/3 aspect ratio. Most Android tablets being widescreen. For me anyway.
  10. Trump agrees to meet with NK President

    In this analogy are we at the back passing notes to each other?
  11. I think that verse stuck in my mind because I was thinking ‘Why was I never told this at school!?’ I remember our R.E. teacher saying ‘I expect the ‘miracle’ cures were all because of psychosomatic reasons.’ (I can’t word that sentence properly.)
  12. It could be set off by something seemingly small. (Just an excuse to show the picture really.)
  13. Minor update to JW Library on iOS available.
  14. Un-United Nations

    Okay. Please consider that some of us forget what the topic is after reading a few comments. I scroll up to remind myself, but it soon goes.
  15. “Why a Jewish king would have pagan symbols on his seal is another matter: some assume it is because he was de facto a vassal king on behalf of the Assyrians.” https://jwtalk.net/forums/topic/34221-bible-is-right-again-chief-of-the-city/
