How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    The short version is: I asked God to send me someone to show me the way out of the religious fog I had been living in all my life. After not seeing a witness for 7 months, 2 sisters turned up on my doorstep 4 days later. After reading the 2nd chapter of the PE book that night, I knew it was the truth.

  1. I'm not quite sure how I should react to this. It would be funny if it wasn't so sad that he is now an ex-human with no income, no home and no job and no prospect of getting one. On the other hand, he brought it on himself by not bothering to contact his family for all those years and overstaying his visa. "Oh what a tangled web we weave when first practice to deceive" (Walter Scott - Marmion). I wonder if his wife wanted to remarry and that is why she registered him as dead after all those years.
  2. A couple of years ago I was having a general converstaion with my manager and I happened to say, obviously as part of the conversation, that I was glad none of my children are gay. Turns out that one of her daughters is gay. From that moment on she made my life absolute hell till my anxiety about going to work was so high that I had to leave.
  3. Good Documentaries

    I watched this yesterday afternoon at your behest. Thank you for sharing. It was fascinating. It explained the how of things I only had a vague knowledge about and I now have more understanding about global warming.
  4. Good Documentaries

    We have had Victoria on TV over here. Netflix Australia doesn't have the vast selection you guys in the states but I have just started watching the second series of The Crown about Elizabeth II reign. It begins in series one with the abdication of Edward when he married Mrs Simpson and his younger brother George having to take the throne. Then his death not long after Elizabeth married Phillip followed by her coronation. I am quite enjoying it. Not a documentary and very watchable.
  5. Oh well. I have both. So if it happens as you say it does I can always just use my portable one. I didn't even know about built in CC till I was reviewing TV's and as this one is a 4K smart TV which is 8" bigger and only cost me AUD33 more than my old standard flat screen one did 7.5 years ago, I'm not going to complain if Chromecast stops updating in a few years time. The CC was just an extra benefit, I would have bought this TV regardless. And maybe your situation in the US is different to ours in Oz, and anywhere else in the world. You cannot assume that just because it's that way in your country it's going to be the same all over the world. Anyhoo, who knows what the situation in the world is going to be at that time ... TV might not even be a thing.
  6. Sorry, I beg to differ. There are 2 options for updating built in Chromecast. It will either do it automatically or if not, you can unplug your TV for a couple of minutes and when you plug it back in, it updates. Mine has automatically updated and has the latest version installed.
  7. @carlos here I am quoting myself because I forgot to tag or quote you in my comment. I just wanted to let you know that there are now Smart android TV's with inbuilt Chromecast in case that made it even easier for your parents.
  8. If the brothers didn't want us to use the Chromecast streaming they wouldn't have made it available to us. If you research Google Chromecast partners and look under additional partners, you will find JW.Org on there front and centre on the very top line. https://store.google.com/product/chromecast_2015_apps
  9. I have recently had to buy a new TV so I bought a smart one which has built in Chromecast. So all I have to do is turn on my TV, open the broadcast on my tablet or phone and click on the chromecast button and it loads on my TV. Before I bought the TV I used the Chromecast gadget that you plug in via HDMI and USB which was great, too.
  10. Going to Venice and Rome

    Yes, the second one, not February. Old habits die hard. Sorry Brother Adelin, I didn't mean to confuse and mislead.
  11. Dear Bob, you are always listening and watching even when you don't say much. Thank you for the Heart Icon 128x128

      You're welcome ;-)

  12. Billy Graham has died

    I have asked for a heart .. but nothing has been forthcoming. This is as close as you can get:
  13. Keego Harbor Murder Suicide

    One wonders how must influence the "longtime family friend', who is obviously an ex-Jehovah's Witness, (and from the sound of it apostate), had on them leaving. And if it was distressing Lauren Stuart to that degree that she ended up doing what she did, yet obviously not confiding in her 'very close friend' about how depressed she was, it makes one wonder if she really wanted to be out in the world at all. Maybe her reasoning was 'if we die we can all be together again in the resurrection'. Whatever the true story, it is so very sad. Jehovah is the only one who knows the true facts so we just have to leave the long term outcome to him.
  14. It's actually 18 for tattoos unless you have parental consent. 16 for piercings and other body mutilations.
