I will find the info, The Bible makes it clear, when mankind reaches perfection, at the end of the 1,000 Reign, man who will then be perfect will be tested(similar to Adam and Eve), those will be put to a test, all who remain faithful will then live forever. (Tuesday Feb 10 | post #15)
It was by no means a prophecy. It was just a generalization based on a certain time frame, that happened to be a bit speculative. Never said Armageddon would, or would not happen. It was left open, because no one knows when it will occur. (Tuesday Feb 10 | post #53)
The stumbling was in my younger years. Due to troubling outside sources. Yes, I am well over 70. I am fairly comfortable online. I can do many things. I actually started using a computer before most of the rest of my family. I bought one in 1999, after my 2nd husband died. Have enjoyed using one ever since (Tuesday Feb 10 | post #96)
Could you please PM me...Thanks (Tuesday Feb 10 | post #708)
Somehow a few managed to hunt down info(I am not really exactly sure how)and put it out for all to see. Things I had never posted myself. They gleaned just enough from a very few things I had said, to ferret out more info. It not only was embarrassing, and humiliating, but I have been harassed by a few(especially one mean person)ever since. It has been very hurtful (Tuesday Feb 10 | post #707)
Require all to register, so they can't hide behind hidden IPs, that show them all over the place...except where they really are, and mask behind all kinds of fake names to harass, insult, and humiliate others, and reveal other person's personal information, while keeping their own hidden. As it is they can do it, and get away with it, which is not legal, nor is it right (Monday Feb 9 | post #659)
That is by no means a lie. It is in perfect accord with the Bible. (Monday Feb 9 | post #9)
Covered, I stay because I feel this way....whether you, I, or anyone else here makes it or not....JW's as an Organization will indeed do so. That's how well I know it is the Truth of GOD's Word, for certain. Does anyone have to agree? No....but I know it w/o doubt. (Monday Feb 9 | post #92)
BTW, I was around in 1975, and many years before that. I knew of a few who quit, but not that many. The Bible tells us, "For the righteous, there is no stumbling block". That's what we should try to keep in mind. A person may stumble, I have a few times, but thankfully, not to a complete fall. We should not allow anything to rob us of our joy for following the "narrow path (Sunday Feb 8 | post #87)
You have your opinion, I have mine. I go with what makes logic and is reasonable. Saying the evildoer was "going" with Jesus to Heaven does not. AND the fact that he was telling the man "THAT DAY" does. (Sunday Feb 8 | post #55)
years before that. I stand by what I said. Do you have to agree? No. That is no problem for me. I am not making excuses, I am saying what I know and believe the intent was for the date. I saw it as a vague "possibility " something might, and could occur....not that it would (Sunday Feb 8 | post #84)
I just have to agree, to disagree. I just don't think as individuals we should focus in on any date given. Yes, the Society has given some few dates, but never(in my view)definitively said Armageddon would occur in that year. I still say it is the fault of an individual...because it is their choice whether to allow it to be a stumbling block or not. The fact that the majority did not give up, shows it did not have to happen (Sunday Feb 8 | post #83)
Horse Pucky. (Saturday Feb 7 | post #48)
I think any for whom it became a stumbling block, took it all the wrong way. Our focus should be on maintaining our Faith, not when Armageddon will come. It will come when Jehovah GOD sees it is the right time(which may now not be that far off). Dwelling on dates of any kind is a recipe for folly. I did not make a big thing of it, and I don't think it was ever intended for us to do that. (Saturday Feb 7 | post #75)
