around 1976 i got the wild idea i'd like to learn greek (for my study of the christian greek scriptures and to 'get to the bottom' of whether i was wasting my time being even a token jehovah's witness.
) i would read the actual text and avoid my denomination's opinion commentaries, you see.. .
i learned the characters in the greek alphabet rather quickly and started reading an interlinear (english/greek) bible aloud - practicing my enunciation.

what would happen?
(a thought experiment) what if it were possible to gather bible students from pastor russell's day in a large auditorium with the rutherford era followers, and then bring in the brother knorr (my era) crowd along with present day jw's and get them chatting with each other?all that new light with all that old light (which thought it had new light) would be in for a shock.would they humble themselves and decide present day governing body doctrine changes and tv style begging for money was acceptable?what do you think?i think it would be chaos and denunciation.
i could be wrong, buti don't think so..

so some ex-jws and i were at dinner last night talking about how some of the ones baptized this year were so young.
a few under the age of 10!!
can you imagine if a kid got dfd at that age.... would the congregation shun them?

my dad was talking to an elder who was trying to convince him the wt is the only organization god is using to save mankind..
so my dad asked him; “would you still believe if there was a nuclear war and it destroyed 50-75 percent of the earth’s inhabitants including all the watchtower’s main offices?
elder said; “that will never happen, that can never happen, because the bible tells us the steps of armageddon.

just curious if anyone has ever been to an assembly with zero baptisms.
if not, i see that happening soon and cant wait for that awkward day!.

what about the bible ,does that agree with the jw theology ?.
therefore angels are sexless ,yet we find in the bible on a few occasions where they have lusted after women ,taken a mans form and had sex with women.. .on one occasion producing hybrids half human half angel.. on other occasions they just wanted to satisfy their sexual desires.?
their sexless aren`t they ?
