How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I grew up in a divided household. My parents fought like cats and dogs, and as a result, I didn't want to hear about religion. But at 13 years old I wanted to fix my family, and so I prayed to whoever might be up there listening and purchased my first bible, a New Revised Standard Version, and began reading. In time, I became passionate over Koine Greek and translation issues, and the more I read the Bible and the deeper I dug into spiritual things, the clearer it became to me that Jehovah's Witnesses were in complete harmony with the word of God.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    Family - doing things together with my wife and children is wonderful - a family that plays together (and prays together), stays together. I'm a Bible teacher and much of my interests center around following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:21). I'm also an internet junkie - probably not a good thing.
  • My favorite books
    God's Word, the Holy Bible (I've collected over 40 translations of this book in Hebrew, Greek, English, and Spanish).
    Truth in Translation: Accuracy and Bias in English Translations of the New Testament by Jason David BeDuhn
    The Role of Theology and Bias in Bible Translation by Rolf Furuli
  • My favorite music
    Such a broad range that it is too much to list. Mike Patton (Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Tomahawk, Fantomas, Peeping Tom, Mondo Cane, and more), The Cure, Andrea Bocelli, and classical music too. Popular music is okay, until it has been played to death. Probably shouldn't mention some of these. Sadly, you have to listen to an album and weed out the bad songs on just about anything these days.
  • My favorite quotes
    And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free - Jesus at John 8:32

  1. Moved to Secular News forum I scrolled and saw the picture of a pool with a big view of the outside and thought that was kinda demented, lol. "Hey, wanna go for a dip and watch the world burn?" "Sure!" Then I noticed that the garden was artificial and under ground.
  2. We had one touch down in the Canton Ohio area just a couple days ago also. Spring is in the air
  3. [off-topic] Sounds like what the left is doing in the United States. Yet the article called it the 'conservative mood' in Russia. [/off-topic]
  4. Canadian side is definitely the side you want to visit. The New York side is behind the falls, whereas the Canadian side has a spectacular view of them. On the Canadian side, the boat is called the Hornblower. Your options are laid out for you in packages, here... https://www.niagarafallstourism.com/attraction-packages We got the Adventure Pass if I remember. We we're only staying 2 nights so time was limited and we thought it was the best one. There is an amusement park called MarineLand that's just out of town that was nice. Also, if you want to eat, you should drive 10 minutes or so north away from the touristy areas. You'll find the same restaurants but the prices are less.
  5. She could probably just "Check In" from her car in the parking lot, but at least this way she got her exercise for the day, lol
  6. Those are some nice albums, both of you I've been to both Virginia Beach and Myrtle Beach several times. I love the ocean. Whenever we go, we usually stop off at Luray Caverns as well. I was up at Niagara Falls a couple years ago and it was sight to see for sure.
  7. Every artist has at least 1 good song. For many, that's the only one, lol.
  8. That's cool. I was doing tile work in Wadsworth/Medina Ohio area and there was a bald eagle nest right across the street. The homeowner had a telescope set up in his living room to get a nice close up view. The little chicks look different, in that they do not have the white head like the adults do. I tried to record some video through the telescope with my phone. I'll try to remember to look it up later.
  9. I should check and see if the software downscales these pics now. That restriction on photo size is from a decade ago when things we're not so advanced. If you still need help, we can upload the pic for you now that @rocket has resized it for us
  10. Tapatalk is holding back the upgrade

      Hmm. Tapatalk. I don’t quite understand Taptalk’s relationship to JWTalk. What I do know is it gives me messages of what has been posted here, and, that I like. But, other then that, I don’t use it. I know, perhaps it’s necessary in the scheme of things...

      We have a handful of members who prefer to use Tapatalk to access JWTalk on their mobile devices. However, Tapatalk is not compatible with the most recent version of our Community Suite. If I were to upgrade JWTalk right now, Tapatalk users would be unable to comment on anything unless they visited using their browser. I've spoken with the devs at Tapatalk and they should have a fix in place within a few days.

  11. Well that is an interesting chart for sure. I wonder how the global warming naysayers would dismiss that. "... and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth"
  12. I have no idea how Tapatalk sees them. You'll have to visit JWTalk in a browser, head over to Richard's Club and join it. Once you've joined a Club you can then go back to using Tapatalk and it should work.
