    JW Library

    The Sign Language app has the ability to create playlists. Would that be useful for the JW Library app?
  2. In many other democracies it is believed that freedom of speech is limited and comes with responsibilities, that you cannot preach ideas that limit or infringe on other people’s rights. I don’t know which is correct. I guess human governments need to try all paths.
  3. I love how it turned out the little band was actually the entertainment at a congregation gathering. We need more of that stuff. Just for fun. Some spontaneous dancing, anyone?
  4. Can you recount how many in your own congregation, or even service group, with the means necessary to leave the country at a moment’s notice when things go bad? Some could probably go, but I guess quite a lot would not be able to leave.
  5. The Watchtower for February 2019 is special. It starts a 4-part series. The first one has 26 paragraphs and is entitled “Love and Justice in Ancient Israel.” The remaining three articles will appear in the May 2019 issue of The Watchtower. The titles of those articles are “Love and Justice in the Christian Congregation,” “Love and Justice in the Face of Wickedness,” and “Providing Comfort for Victims of Abuse.” https://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/watchtower-study-february-2019/love-justice-ancient-israel/
  6. We should also get rid of the lowercase letters. And most letters in the alphabet. I mean, does anyone ever use all of them? We should do just fine with 5 or perhaps 6. I mean, we’ve got the emojis.
  7. You mentioned that are is “invested with an emotional, philosophical, spiritual or esthetic quality that reaches beyond.” Although not everyone would agree with these requirements, you could definitely argue that the assyrians produced exactly this. I am certain that if you study them, you can make out different artists, and an intent to create a philosophical, spiritual or aesthetic quality. Is it propaganda? Yes! Certainly. Art can be. Is it political? Yes! Art can be. Does it portray true history? No! Art doesn’t have to. When you see them in real life, they certainly come across as masterful pieces of art. As does the propaganda you find on the walls when you walk around in the Valley of Kings.
  8. It helps with the understanding of written English language. People’s is different from peoples. Although, language isn’t static. If people stop using it, it will become obsolete and disappear.
  9. They were quite skilled at producing art. http://www.visual-arts-cork.com/ancient-art/assyrian.htm They were quite skilled at producing art. http://www.visual-arts-cork.com/ancient-art/assyrian.htm
  10. It is, but most large museums started out that way - theft and questionable deals. Sometimes I wonder, though, where the items are best preserved. After all, it is not only a national history, but the history of humankind.
  11. A rare, 3,000-year-old sculpture is expected to fetch at least $10 million when it goes under the hammer at Christie's New York tomorrow. Read about the sale of an extraordinary item from Nimrud, and how. It came to be excavated. Rare 3,000-year-old Assyrian art work expected to fetch more than $10M at auction (CNN)

    In the US? I’m sure it happens every now and then, so why would they publish it in the media now?
  13. When people ask, I refer them to the website. If it’s not there, they get a ‘it’s not available’. It is better to be overly careful, I feel. What is?
  14. They should probably look into every single catholic member who did things like these as well, the way they’d like to do with us...
  15. I didn’t mean to snap. It just felt like your post was singling me out, when I’m just highlighting the need to be extremely careful. It irked me a bit.
