when you think about it , in this 21st century of enlightenment , the explosion of information technology in all fields imaginable , yet the majority of humans of all faiths live their lives according to ancient scriptures / writings etc.for a world long past its use by date.. the bible says" faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for " none of the expectations hoped for in the jehovah`s witness religion ever eventuated , and neither has it in any other faith .. faith , of no matter what belief , is the carrot on the end of a stick leading the gullible on , and on , and on .and on.. smiddy.

the knowledge of religious tales are similar to knowing the story of the "little red riding hood.
" there is the big, "bad" wolf who needs to be conquered, destroyed, avoided.
the story may change as religions change.

right now two jws in my family are watching a documentary about scientology and laughing at the 'crazy things that people believe'.
isn't it ironic?
on the other hand i've never seen them watch something like this before.. i'm making sure to laugh loudly at things that parallel jw beliefs and behaviours in order to bring attention to them.. i hope they are curious enough to watch a similar expose on jws should it air on network tv.. yeah right, wishful thinking..

every religious group know the story of adam & eve.
for me, i understood what they did was wrong but i never felt they were bad people and considering that they never murdered anyone and seemed to live normal lives after being kicked out, i found it hard to accept that they deserved to die forever and that we would be responsible for suffering for their mistakes.
i personally feel like i might have done the same thing adam did when eve offered him the fruit.

well with the 2016 convention coming the wt released a trailer..... part 1 emotionalism... this movie will be made to make people cry and to be honest because i will be there this year i will cry likely but not for religious reasons... because they are using the tattc of emotionalism of a destroyed man...... part 2 stats out like the trailer to 300...it looks at the start like a violent accurate historical movie of hezekiah but in the last 30 seconds you see isaiah preaching to hezekiah,,,, letdown.
(what is good is that the wtbts chose a movie based on a story i can throw back at them using archeology easily).

these well known words from the bible are so interesting!.
"come to me all who are toiling and loaded down, and i will refresh you"...etc.... .
is it refreshing to be witness?.

with all the info from videos to boe letters, to the flock book ( this is huge when you learn ttatt!
), why can't we find out who the wtbts hired to aid in their rebranding efforts?
we know all about the rc and monica applewhite for jeehoober's sake, so why in the hell can't we find out who is behind the rebranding?

like many others on here i was raised and spent many years of my life looking forward to , and basing my life around the anticipated "new world" .this utopian paradise would "satisfy the desire of every living thing".
we would enjoy eternal youth in perfect health,have abundant good food ,comfortable homes ,even welcome our parents and forebears back from the dead - what's not to like?i found this description of a dystopian world on the net :"characteristics of a dystopian society• propaganda is used to control the citizens of society.• information, independent thought, and freedom are restricted.• a figurehead or concept is worshipped by the citizens of the society.• citizens are perceived to be under constant surveillance.• citizens have a fear of the outside world.• citizens live in a dehumanized state.• the natural world is banished and distrusted.• citizens conform to uniform expectations.
individuality and dissent are bad.• the society is an illusion of a perfect utopian world."hmm.
