i heard that jj abrams has finished the screenplay and they'll be starting to shoot the final episode soon.. so where will the story go?.
han solo is dead, snoke is dead, leia can only have a very limited role at best because carrie fisher unfortunately died .... plus, rey has already defeated the main villain once before, in her first lightsaber fight (in the force awakens, because 'ovaries!
', i guess xd).. and she saved his ass against snoke's elite guards (in the last jedi) - so it will be difficult to film any kind of dramatic tension between rey and kylo ren.. i won't be seeing this film in the cinema or buying it on dvd but i am kinda curious how things will pan out .... what do you think?.

i am not going to delve into the opinions and information provided by the good folks on this forum on matters of health and science in another post.
instead i want to make clear that the wtbts provided a fountain of information on this subject.
feel free to add any other misinformation you received.

i have just finished watching this program and found it quite disturbing in the sense that both sides of the war effort had so little regard for human life .. it might sound strange to say that in time of warfare when civilian casualties are rife on both sides ,however i think this is an exception.. except for the courage and heroic efforts of the german commander of the u-boat who tried and helped so many people to survive.. werner hartenstein.
his name should be honored by all the nationalities he saved.. and i was appalled by the americans who bombed the submarine on the surface of the water with a red cross flag in full view with civilians on deck and lifeboats in tow with many more civilians on board.. i think this was an exceptional incident in a time of war that both sides should have given way..

use sources properly.
apply scriptures in harmony with their context, the bible’s overall message, and the publications of “the faithful and discreet slave.” (matt.
in other words, if you happen to discover how our doctrines are contradicted by the bible, don't use those verses.. use secular sources in accord with the original context and the intent of the writer.. .

i found this pretty interesting and as an avid firearm fan even more so.. so to our american members here... .
as a jw did you or did you know any practising dubs who carried or if not had firearms for home defence?

stan's recent post about the apostasy movie reminded me that i had watched it last month, so i thought i'd write a review.
please note this will probably contain some spoilers so if you care about that sort of thing hold off on reading this.. first i want to say that this is probably one of the most if not the most accurate and reasonable cinematic portrayals of jws.
however here is a list of little inaccuracies: an outdated view that preaching to all the world can 'make' the end come, jesus briefly portrayed with long hair, judicial reinstatement meetings being called "guidance meetings", a normal weekly public talk being introduced as "the first in a series of talks he's prepared for us", applause at the end of a local needs part, and a jw saying of god "you need to earn his love, it's conditional" ( i know this is basically true in practice but they'd rarely say it out loud).
