    Appreciation

    I have a very dear friend on JWTalk who has been instrumental in helping us (my husband and myself) to feel worthy in Jehovah's eyes - and he knows who he is - in face of some very severe trials ... these brothers and sisters are pivotal in helping all of us to remain firm and by extension - loved not just by Jehovah but by every one of us in our congregations and the extended brotherhood here on JWTalk. In addition to our friend has been many more friends who have pmmed us when times has been horrible, some even showing their love in a more tangible way - again they know who they are - our dear sisters whose hearts speak to us through their own trials and the brothers who give such wonderful scriptural advice. THANK YOU. But, the delight is, is that this is happening to not just Tom and I but everyone on JWTalk are instantly family and friends moreso as they express their love for Jehovah through the threads. So, by way of Encouragement and diamonds sharpening diamonds ... I wanted this opportunity to thank all of you who go out of their way to encourage those privately and those who are hurting. As times progress we are going to see more of our brothers and sisters in pain. I want to encourage not only a continuation of what is positive and beautiful happening behind the scenes here and in our congregations but to those who have not yet reached out to brothers and sisters who need to feel loved despite trials - to do so - as there is more happiness in giving than receiving. I'm so proud of you all on JWTalk from the mods who work so hard behind the scenes (Bob - thank you for your hard work) to the members who are moved to help via pms and encouraging and upbuilding posts. Thank you each and every one of you for your faith and your intense love to us all. PS: I am moved to write this as a very dear friend showed Tom and I how much he cared ... and I think this is a great opportunity for us to express not to me, but to all on this site how much we appreciate the spiritual encouragement we get ... thank you to Jehovah our Soveriegn and your son Jesus - for providing our brotherhood and giving us skills that can encourage ones we have not yet met in the flesh - we are indeed a privileged people

    On Sunday, March 10, Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia. All 157 people on board were killed. Sadly, one of our sisters, Rosemary Mumbi, was among those killed in the plane crash. Sister Mumbi was 66 years old and a full-time minister in the Roma Manzoni Inglese Congregation in Rome, Italy. We are deeply saddened to hear of this tragic loss. We look forward to the resurrection, when we will welcome back faithful servants of Jehovah, including Sister Mumbi.—Revelation 20:13. https://www.jw.org/en/news/jw/region/ethiopia/Sister-Killed-in-Ethiopian-Airlines-Plane-Crash/

    Mass shooting in New Zealand

    This is in my city .. it feels so unreal right now. I don't think there was any shooting in any hospital, but the mosque on Deans ave is very close to the major public hospital so there may have been some confused reports from nearby neighbours. My parents work in the health industry but not at the hospital (about 5km away from it, and from one of the shooting locations), and they have just been released from lockdown about an hour ago (approximately 5 hours after the shootings began). Schools were let out of lockdown about half an hour before my parents were. The police and media are being very cautious about announcing the death toll and a lot of other information. Breaking news right now says that 40 are dead. One of the shooters live-streamed it to facebook, and beforehand he published a 'manifesto' stating that he was born in Australia, to a lower class family and has had 'extreme views'. It's not real, it doesn't feel real right now.

    Lovely Illustration ...

    ... and an interesting question. I was listening to a talk of a circuit overseer please don't ask his name ... my memory is holier than swiss cheese. You may have heard it already but here it is: The Viking Ship. The Vikings were well known as plunderers and took advantage of foreign women in their barbaric crusades that people remember down to this day. But they were well known for something else too ... that was their skills as ship builders. They have very strong ships that could withstand the perils of the North Sea and other bodies of water they travelled. The strongest part of their ship was not the rudder, but rather it was the main mast - why? Because the trees they chose for their main masts were trees that stood tall facing the ocean. Why? Because it was these trees that had withstood many many storms and they grew facing these storms so their hearts were strong and they would not crack easily in storms at sea. (Unless of course they encountered Asterix and Obelix - but that's another story). So that leaves us with an interesting question ... Are we allowing our trials and tests to make our heart grow strong for Jehovah and make us a mighty tree? You see, NONE of us want the first test on our Faith to be The Great Tribulation. Makes you think doesn't it?

    Mass shooting in New Zealand

    Seems to be a shooting an hour ago in a Christchurch Hospital as well ... some reports saying as many as 37 dead, but I would like to see more facts to back that up. Schools, in fact, the whole city of Christchurch is on lock-down and the NZ Islamic population are being told not to go into any mosque in New Zealand until further notice. Our member - Dalbyj is safe, and so far as we can ascertain so are brothers and sisters, but with this latest unconfirmed shooting in a hospital which is more indiscriminate that may change and if it does then it will be updated. All our love to all the families involved ... this is just heartbreaking. https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/live-police-say-multiple-fatalities-in-mass-shooting-two-christchurch-mosques-one-person-arrested?variant=tb_v_3

    Mass shooting in New Zealand

    I think, here in New Zealand, this is a profound event for different reasons than it would normally be in other parts of the world. First of all, we need to, here on JWTalk, stop making it about specific groups, because as already pointed out focusing on specific groups who are targeted in this instance, means its a distraction from other groups that could cause just as much harm. But what is different here is, New Zealand has always been seen as everyone's little sibling, everyone moves to New Zealand from well known Hollywood Icons through to diverse groups as is seen in this event. Why? Because we have little by way of harmful racism, we accept everyone into our lifestyle no matter their ethnic background - (a FEW activist notwithstanding - certainly not a perfect country by any means). Now, interestingly, this type of position we have found ourselves in is detrimental spiritually, because New Zealanders for a long time and this spills over to the brotherhood, have lived life with our heads in the sand ... even in the truth we hear of atrocities overseas but it doesn't affect us so the empathy is not as profound as it should have been. A materialistic and social types of lifestyles seem to be the norm in pockets of New Zealand. New Zealand has changed in an instant ... as Brother RIchard said in a status update, New Zealand is very sombre, I think they /we have just grown up in an instant, is that good? No. It's like a child losing it's innocence. Is there a silver lining? Yes. It's time our Brothers and Sisters realized, not just with their ears and eyes, but with their hearts, that we are living in a sinnking system and that endeavours to maintain a lifestyle NZers are accustomed to, is futile. May Jehovah be with us all as more and more of these type of events happen not just here, but around the world.

    Appreciation

    Thank you, Mandi, for a good topic. I also wanted to express my appreciation to everyone on jwtalk for their contributions to this wonderful agape-driven community of fellow believers. A separate thank-you to the admins and mods for their hard work that is not always seen, but is vital in the technical and spiritual sense. Personally, I find this website a godsend, as I can interact with brothers and sisters from many parts of the world, learn something new every day and keep myself sane while I am going through a difficult period in life. Lots of agape to you all!

    Here in New Zealand, everyone is feeling down. This has never happened before (not to this degree) and has visibly shaken the country. We found out the news while in the ministry around the same time, though we are from the north of New Zealand. The householders were really concerned- frightened even. I have been flooded with texts, messages and posts about how people are feeling. Makes our preaching work and the message we bring so much more important. We will be in the city with the literature carts tomorrow morning. Very tragic what has happened.

    I do understand the frustration. We as Jehovah’s people don’t hate anyone but we hate the bad things others do. Inspired words encourage us: «’Hate what is bad, and love what is good, Let justice prevail in the city gate’». We not avenge yourselves but yield place to the wrath; for it is written «Vengeance is mine; I will repay,’ says Jehovah.» We can only pray to Jehovah to give us strong faith and endurance. We well know that «the world is passing away and so is its desire, but the one who does the will of God remains forever»

    Mass shooting in New Zealand

    Some field service experience: We have heard from brothers in Auckland that Friday night (the day of the attack) police were stationed at most, if not, all mosques. Multiple field service groups were warned of use of literature carts as it can be dangerous. Either householders would be really happy to hear a comforting message or they would be very angry that we are talking about God at this moment in time. We were able to setup a cart at our popular marketplace 6am in the morning. People were very pleasant with us. Various field service groups across our circuit and in Auckland focused on what comforting scriptures we could use. Some included: ”We are here to share a positive scripture in light of yesterday’s events- Rev 21:4.” ”Genesis 6:5, 6- How do you think God feels about what has and is happening? Hurt. Like us.” ”Pr 17:22 says “a crushed spirit saps one’s strength.” That’s how we feel right now. But the hope the Bible gives makes us to see up” New Zealand, is not a big place. The littlest of news here is the biggest of news here. Just a few months ago, one young tourist girl disappeared and the whole of New Zealand felt heavily affected by the whole ordeal (later became a murder case.) Any news here is big news. New Zealand feels like they have lost their innocence and their “pure” image. I have met so many householders who would tell us that nothing will ever happen in New Zealand. It is faraway from everyone. People come to our country to escape the worlds problems. They see New Zealand as a paradise. A bubble. And that changed yesterday. Some Brothers and Sisters did not have the strength to go out in the ministry today. So we didn’t spend too much in the house-to-house work. It was a time to check in with our calls (return visits), friends and family.

    The stuff I read on the internet about the video broadcast is both saddening and creepy at the same time. Won't go into graphic detail here. But let me say this. This is the most gut-wrenching thing that was ever carried out in the public eye. We have achieved a new level of evil. With the tit for tat mentality in this sick world, expect some stupid terror attack to happen in the next weeks citing revenge for Christchurch.

    As Christians we do well to constantly remind ourselves on Jehovah's view and his promises for the Kingdom. Notice this Watchtower: In the face of such evil it can be very difficult for us to remain neutral. Without thinking about it, we could easily develop an "us vs. them" attitude. We could even paint some aspects of Babylon the Great as worse than others. For example, it's easy to have more hatred toward the Islamic religions right now because of terrorism but we should not forget that all of Babylon the Great is guilty of heinous crimes. For centuries Christendom also has stained her hands in the blood of innocents. Back in my childhood the terrorists that were setting off bombs and killing innocent civilians thought of themselves as "good Catholics" (although their terrorist campaigns were not fueled by religious ideologies). As we're seeing in the news of late the Catholic leadership has been guilty of many heinous immoral crimes. None of Babylon the Great is innocent and they all have been and will receive negative judgement from Jehovah. We should not allow Satan's machinations to persuade us to violate our neutral stand because one member of Babylon the Great is acting more heinous than any other at a particular moment in time.

    The media are releasing some of the names of the ones killed and it just happens that I know one of them in a professional capacity. His company works in the same building as my company, and he and I have liaised a few times on building matters such as a leak in the roof etc. When this first happened I thought that I would not know any of the victims as they are all Muslims - but it turns out that I do. I very much hope that I can meet again him in the new system. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk

    You are right Lucy - we can now say that violent atrocities have occurred from one end of the earth to the other. New Zealand won't be the same now, already there is an air of disbelief, I only hope it wakes many up spiritually. Tomorrow I do the carts - we will use the magazine about being secure. Will be interesting how the public will react.

    Mass shooting in New Zealand

    The news in Australia say the man who live streamed the shooting was from Grafton NSW Australia. He was an extremist, but the white supremacist extremist kind. One of the independent politicians here was saying he did this because of all the Muslim migrants coming into NZ and Australia and he was told by the PM of Australia that what he said was disgusting. They're saying it's Islamophobia. Boy, how wicked is this system. Neutral, neutral, neutral. https://www.perthnow.com.au/news/australia/brenton-tarrant-manifesto-the-delusions-of-a-white-supremacist-ng-4f3e8382dccbd975533f487d4a3be6f6 This man's "manifesto" wreaks of the same stuff as Hitler's writings. But now it's like Hitler has spawned. Satan's end is close.

    It was a White Supremacy attack. We know, because it was livestreamed to Facebook and YouTube. (They have since taken it down). The man who planned the Attack was apparently Australian, so there's another investigation going on over here. If he planned this in my country, he might have confederates. Four have been arrested, three men, and one woman. The body count is now over 40. It's the biggest shooting in NZ for thirty years. Christchurch is still trying to rebuild from the earthquake that levelled the place; so this is really kicking them when they're down. Brothers and Sisters in NZ, please know that your cousins here in Oz are thinking of you. I know we're all neutral on this forum, but the 'Spirit of the Anzacs' does extend somewhat to everyone in Australia.

    Torture of JWs in Russia

    Just a question, do we really still need to harbour on what our brother may or may not have done? I wish the question hadn't come up in the first place. It doesn't matter what he did or did not say, what effect it may or may not have and it is presumptuous to pretend we would have done better in the same situation. I just noticed we've been dwelling on this for many days. Let's drop the subject, can we?
  28. 9 points
    Thomas Walker

    Torture of JWs in Russia

    There are many variables in this story. To me, the three most important ones are: 1) Is any of it true? Torture has never been an effective means at gaining information. You tell your interrogators what they want to hear. That's why it's worse than illegal, and immoral: It's stupid, too. If our brother decided to tell them whatever they wanted to hear, then who knows what the facts actually were. It makes no practical difference to other JW's in Russia. They're ignoring their own laws as it suits them. If they decide to go after a random citizen they think is a JW, they don't need evidence or 'just cause'. They haven't had any evidence, or needed any. Not so far. They're under no obligation to tell the truth to their own people. And if they beat the words they wanted to hear out of an innocent civilian, it's only more evidence of where they stand in this debate. It's far more illuminating about them, than it could ever be about where our brother puts his faith. 2) Standing Firm. We had our Circuit Assembly this weekend, and the Baptism talk was on the topic of 'We are not the sort that shrink back'. He made the point that 'chickening out' in the face of a bad day, or an intimidating environment, doesn't mean we're 'shrinking back'. When we tell stories about the brothers in the Camps during WW2, we're all proud of how 'a'most none' of us signed on the dotted line to go free. But that 'Almost' is still relevant. I remember reading at least one experience of a sister who signed away her faith, regretted it, and took it back afterward; rededicating herself totally in regret to the one moments she couldn't hold out. I know this is the part we're all concerned about. We always say 'God won't let us be pushed beyond our limits'. So when we hear a story like this, we wonder about ourselves. There are numerous cases of the Giants of our faith being near-suicidal over bad days. But when Elijah cried for death, the Angel was right there at his elbow instantly. When Jonah thought he was going to be lynched, God's voice was the next sound he heard. If a parent tells their child a lie, and then hits that little kid until they say it's truth; that doesn't make the parent right. It doesn't even mean the kid has changed his mind. God knows the difference, and certainly the Brothers do. Most of us won't experience this kind of outright opposition until the End of this story. And speaking for myself, that's the scary part: That if it happens to us, and we can't hold out? Will we still be able to make it right again, with that little time to go? To that, I say this: Satan challenged Jesus. Why would he bother? Because when Satan made his tempting offers, Jesus was human, and hungry, and alone. Satan was gambling that there's a difference between being faithful to God when at his right hand in heaven, and being faithful while strung up on a stake. When Tribulation breaks out, the Weight of the World will be dialled up a few degrees harder than anything else before. But so will God's counter-moves. And we do know which side has a history of winning. Which brings us to: 3) God's still got this. There are numerous examples of our brothers going into hiding, and having that moment where the soldiers are looking directly at them, but see nothing. Nowhere in the bible did god have a perfect plan, that one of his own people messed up in a moment of weakness when under major trial. It's odd to think it, but the Congregation has larger rifts and struggles when there's arguments and gossip than when it's under direct attack. We can't imagine what this brother is going through right now, and having these reports going international as a result isn't going to make it any easier for him. There's a difference between being broken and being defeated. But God has a special knack for fixing broken things; and a special love for broken people. Now, more than ever, this man is in God's keeping.

    I pray that you are able to develop a less critical attitude toward the brothers that Jehovah has allowed to be responsible for the congregation. Your survival may depend on your quick and unquestioning response to their direction during an emergency.

    Though of course we must keep our neutrality, I find Bro Nurzat's comments encouraging. Because it shows us a glimpse of how hard it must be for our brothers and sisters in such oppressed lands, and how they are faithfully enduring regardless. There are different types of people in satan's system. Some are definitely more blatantly influenced by his demeanor, and others, like in our Western lands, seems to project a veneer of civility. I wouldn't have a clue what it's like to be a witness in such a society that not only was formerly Soviet, but also is predominantly Muslim. It is the diametric opposite of ours. We, unfortunately, will see reprisals. The extremists at either end of the spectrum are goaded by these sorts of atrocities. For us, let's keep our unity and keep our peace. How good it is to know Jehovah and serve him in whatever hateful part of satan's world we find ourselves in.

    Today in FS we were out in the country, and we had some good talks with the people we visited. Even the ones who said "No" said it kindly and gently - it is very unusual to go a whole day without at least one person being a little abrupt, but that just didn't happen today. The sister I was partnered with was a little negative at the start of the day, and I had to steer some of our conversations into a more positive channel - but by the end of the day she was feeling much better and we finished with one of her return visits, which ended up being a really lovely experience for both of us. On our way back into town she said that she had considered cancelling this morning as she had been feeling very down and upset about the attacks, but now she is really glad that she came out with the group. Jehovah is really strengthening us all at this difficult time.

    The "shooter" made triple 6 sign with his hand in the court, I saw the picture on the news. What he was watching and reading prior to shooting, greatly influenced him to commit such a great atrocity. How timely is FDS advice, that we must guard our mental powers and read the Bible daily.

    What I'm sensing especially as a tendency in myself is how easy it is to take a side and how difficult it is to be completely neutral. Through what I see as unintentional "taking sides" is terms and thoughts that you can almost tell which news channel someone got their news from. It's shocking to me how biased news sources are and how politicised they are. I think that became most obvious on any news articles about us a witnesses. How timely march broadcast is for me. With how many slants and takes we are hit by from news sources and social media, you can really see just how much satans world subtlety influences our thinking. A big reminder of this for me that will always stick with me is growing up as a teen post 9/11. Without realizing it till many years later I had become fearful and biased towards any one that "looked" Muslim. This wasn't intended or sought out, but came through what I now realise what viewing of news as I grew up. Seeing 24/7 news networks propagate fear and hatred had a influence on me growing up that I had to correct thanks to some strong watchtower articles. I think I need to watch the march broadcast again for myself and try to be the most neutral I can until tragedy and suffering like we are seeing are no more.

    Because there is a difference between our head and our heart. We know in our head that these things will happen but they still shock our heart when they do happen. When Jesus was on earth he knew that people will die but he still cried when he saw death. So we are not shocked that things like this can happen, we are shocked when they do happen.

    Apple's wireless AirPods may cause cancer

    Yes, EMFs' link to cancer has been known for many years, but as always corporate interests get in the way. A case in point is a popular US-made fertiliser called glyphosate or commonly known as roundup. There has been ample research that it causes cancer, but many countries and surprisingly the EU have been authorising its use in Europe despite pleas from environmental activists to the contrary. Later it turned out that the company behind it faked some research and presented it to counter cancer claims. Roundup is also now known to be the cause of mass insect die-off, particularly of the honey bees. Corporate cover-up of things that might deprive them of big profits is well known. For example, climate change, cigarettes, Johnson baby talc and many other things have been "dressed up scientifically" by greed-driven companies to make them look as unharmful. What will the governments do about EMFs? It is very likely nothing in the near future. Big corporations like Apple will hire scientists and some NGOs to come up with some "research" claiming that EMFs or at least their products are harmless or within safe limits. We are living in the post-truth postmodernist era where people will do everything for the love of money and self. Sorry for this if it came across a bit too strong, but since falling ill, I have been doing a lot of research online about health and discovered how companies and governments have been poisoning us in the name of "economic growth" and "wealth generation" for about 100 years now.
