With Halloween fast approaching, it struck me looking back how ironic it was when the worm turned every year on Halloween, when JWs turn off the porch light, draw the curtains, stumble around in the dark, etc. when the Worldlies come to knock on THEIR door, lol!
Many said how they removed the bracketed words, etc. No they did not.
Creation proves that God is love. False. The circle of life proves the contrary. Love is not the basis for the carnage needed for survival. Any Loving creator would have adapted vegetation to fit the needs of all species. No No need for one sentient life to feed on another sentient life. As for the overcrowding of a species, timing a natural and painless death is no problem for an all powerful/intelligent creator.
I just got in from my daughters homecoming(She is a cheerleader and these guys make a huge deal out of this stuff). They play 3 football games of various age groups. At 7:40 4 WITNESSES get out of the car and start setting up a witnessing booth. ( I have pictures but not sure how to get them on here.) First off, I laughed as hard as I could because it took them about 20 minutes to set up this little collapsible table and take out the signs.
They new nothing of the 8 men Brooklyn being the faithful and discreet slave, nothing about C.T Russell or Rutherford, nothing of how Jesus came and selected them as his chosen people in 1914-19, in fact the only thing they knew about 1914 was that that was when the first world war started, nothing about Malawi and Mexico, never heard of Candace Conti or any of the sex abuse scandals, nothing about the 2 witness rule, nothing about the elders being chosen by the Holy Spirit, nothing about 'new light', nothing about the Orgs involvement with the UN, nothing about the blood fractions changes They knew almost nothing at all about the majority of their own organisations core teachings.
For people who have a paralyzing fear of dying, to where it seems like it's this horrible, stalking monster, JWism is a powerful sedative.
