Jehovah’s Witness’s at one time claimed to know what constellation of stars Jehovah God dwelled in. When I found this out I couldn’t believe anyone on Earth could be bold enough to make such a claim. Where did they get this knowledge? It certainly did not come from the Bible. Here are there claims: 1927 […]
From the very founding of Christianity in the first century the heavenly hope has been the only hope of every Christian. Did any writer of the Greek scriptures hold out any other hope? If this has been the hope of Christians, when did it change to a hope of living on earth forever? Even Jehovah’s […]
In the previous post “What is a Christians Hope? Heaven or Earth” I made the case that the only hope for Christians was the heavenly one. The post also explained why it is reasonable to place the great crowd in heaven. This post will continue the topic of our hope. As Christians we all have […]
Many of us have mates that are not awake to the flaws and inconsistencies that we have discovered. They may refuse to even listen to what we have to say and it can hurt our feelings greatly. This varies in degree from marriage to marriage, but the primary thing for us to remember is this: Be as patient and loving with your wife or husband as you possibly can!
The Watchtower Society makes the claim that sonship is offered at this time only to a few thousand Christians. It is theorized that the rest only are offered friendship to God on the basis of their association with the sons of God. Is this true? I would encourage all readers to carefully evaluate Romans chap. […]
As most all of us know. Japan just had a 8.9 Earthquake and large tsunami devastate their country. Not to mention the nuclear power disaster. My heart and prayers, and I am sure yours too, go out to all of those families in Japan undergoing this terrible turmoil right now. This sad event is all […]
“When religion rather than the person of Christ becomes central in our lives, we substitute Pharisaism for Christianity. Religion is central when that to which we are passionately committed is our manner of worship, our theological belief system, our form of piety or our particular religious experience. We then proselytize rather than evangelize. To proselytize […]
The story of Martin Luther, famous theological reformer and perhaps the first so-called apostate of the Catholic Church is fascinating.
Many Jehovah’s Witnesses upon finding that the “truth” wasn’t as true as they thought find themselves spiritually disorientated. They may not know what to believe. As a JW they perhaps thought of themselves as spiritually mature, but now have been disabused of that idea. The Society talks often about the need to advance to spiritual […]
How many are awake to the problems within the WTO? Of the 7 million or so that are active JWs is there any possible way to reach an estimated ballpark number of how many are out there?
I’ve been doing some research on this and I’m good at math but not a statistician (big difference lol) however I’m sticking with it. When scientists count how many hairs are on the human head they actually cordon off a small area (like 1 cm x 1 cm) and then count those and do an extrapolation.
Where was the Organization in the 18th century, the 17th century, the 16th century, the 12th century, the 6th century, etc? There was none. Why should it be any different today?
If one lived in the ten-tribe kingdom there was never a time when things were right. True, Jehu got rid of Baal worship, but the idolatrous calf worship remained. And Hosea indicated that there would be an accounting against the house of Jehu for the bloodshed at Jezreel. Elijah was so discouraged that he thought he was alone in the ten-tribe kingdom. Unknown to him, there were the “7,000” who had not bent the knee to Baal. (1 Kings 19:18) For all those people, there was no “Organization” or safe haven.
I found this list on biblicaltruthseekers.co.uk Hope you enjoy. TRAITS OF ABUSIVE CHURCHES AND ORGANIZATIONS • Control-orientated, arrogantly assertive, power-posturing leadership. • Authoritarian and legalistic with dictatorial, dogmatic unproven doctrines that are proclaimed to be ‘the Truth’. • Claims of being the channel of communication between God and mankind; having unique knowledge that makes them […]
