Worldwide brotherhood in one stadium

It's very uplifting to see more than 35,000 people peacefully mingling together. Last weekend I attended a Jehovah's Witnesses convention at Qualcomm Stadium San Diego, with simultaneous programs in English and Spanish.

The songs were especially thrilling for me, when voices filled the stadium with the same song, different language. It took me back to a 2003 international convention I attended in Kiev, Ukraine. It had 75,000 attendees from 30 different countries. When it came time to sing, everyone stood and sang the same song in their own language. It gave me goose bumps.

I met so many wonderful people. Sometimes we couldn't even understand each other but we would hug and smile.

The first day we sat with the Ukranians, the second day with the Polish, the third day with the Russians. The last day the Americans sat together.

When you are in the middle of something like that, you really feel part of a worldwide brotherhood.

PLEEEESE ..WITNESSES of an organization, in one stadium..,,thats the actuality..

Using Jehovah Gods name to further their own agenda, and expand their organization

Brotherhood of organization adherents, a bit like those rallies of Amway...

PLEEESE don't confuse who these ones promote ...

These ones don't care about Jehovah's Kingdom or his righteousness..the majority are waiting until after a thousand years to be righteous, and they don't even believe Jesus on being born of spirit and water to enter the Kingdom of God

So when they think they are going to enter Gods Kingdom , is anyones guess..because they are not seeking the Kingdom and Gods righteousness, to start with.

The worst part is that if you look closely into their cult you will find that a finite number of their members will be judged righteous enough to get to heaven. The rest are screwed. When you compare the number who will make it to the total number who have been taken in by them, the odds are pretty darn poor.
Can anyone actually find untwisted scriptures which support their ideas? I think not. BTW-- I don't have much use for a group which twists the Commandment about graven images so that it excuses them from saying the pledge of allegience to their country. How twisted, unpatriotic, and just downright wrong.

If you think I do not have much use for them you are so very right. They keep coming, uninvited and unwanted, onto my property and trying to ram their nonsense down my throat. It actually is a pleasure to throw them off of the property. Jehovah's witlesses are not welcome on my land.

It's been the same for the UK Queen's Jubilee celebrations in the UK.
People have travelled from all over the world to thank her personally for the totally selfless giving of herself for the past 60 years. She will never retire, she is going to serve till she drops. Hundreds of thousands have come out in London to support and thank her for her service to her people.
She is a wonderful example to all of us, with high moral standards and a very strong faith.

Yet, Jehovah's Witnesses are determined to serve Jehovah and not the queen.

Yeah, I'm actually surprised anyone would think this was an indication of anything. Have these people never been to a real Christian event? There are events going on all the time with 10s of thousands of people mingling in actual Christian love.

Pretty weird to highlight this and pretend that it means they are united when everyone knows better.

I fully appreciate that. Accept you got it slightly wrong.
She is the one who serves us. She makes no demands on us. She is there to represent her people.
As for JWs they serve the Watchtower organisation, as seen by the many rules and regulations they put on their people. Whereas the queen adapts to new situations, the governing body claim they have new light, when in fact they change, because they have got what they previously said wrong.
Refreshing difference.

Well God's will was not being done in heaven when Jesus said those words, so probably his will won't be done on earth either any time soon

1) Who are YOU to state what is God's will.
2) What was happening and did happen was part of his plan. Again, who are YOU to say what is or isn't his will. Who elected you to be God?

Jesus said very clearly 'let your will be done on earth as it is in heaven'
My point was that when Jesus was on earth, God's will was not being done in heaven was it?
The scriptures show that at that time, heaven consisted of Satan and myriads of demons as well as loyal angels. It was only after they were kicked out of heaven, which according to JWs was around 1914, that heaven could be said to consist of ones doing God's will.
If that is not the JW view please let me know.

Now you want the JWs to rewrite history and prehistory. How rediculous. There is no reason to discuss with members of a cult. I throw them off of my ranch whenever given the chance. I wish I could do the same for the forum but I guess we will just have to let them rant their nonsense while ignoring their noise.

Whether anyone rejects the message Jehovah's witnesses are preaching in these last days, the fact is, we are in the final part of the last days, and soon this world will be gone forever.

If you want to go with it, that is fine with me, but there are people who want to know the truth about God and life, and what Jehovah God is going to do in the future. You can only learn that truth from his representatives on earth today, his witnesses. Matthew 24:14

Obeying Jesus as he taught us to be the light of the world, the truth of God's word the Bible is not understood by any other religion on this earth.
That is the sacred mystery or secret only Jehovah's witnesses can explain today.
Ephesians 3:8-12
