they set me an email . They have an article regardig how they differ eith JWS and 7th day adventists. I found it rather interesting. I started to sign up for their "the real truth" emg, but it requires your name and they do not guarantee they will not disclose it to a third party.
The Reformed Church of God, anyone know anything about them?
I have no idea what you are talking about concerning slippys. I don't have any account there at all. Are you sure that you didn't mistake another name for me? ...Now I"m all curious!! I don't get into political threads much at all here, let alone anywhere else.
Back when my husband and I were living in Japan (he was working teaching English for a Japanese church), we were unable to attend his 10th high school reunion. His mother found out that someone's buddy had tagged along and claimed to be him, took a name badge for him, and got completely smashed while trying to answer questions about how it was to live in Japan. I think that if someone wants to pose as a JWD person at slippys, I'm hardly an exciting pick.
Very interesting link wednesday on their comaprison to the JW's. I have found out that there are many religions quite similar to the witneses even those who believe in D'F as a friend of mine who grew up in such a religion discussed with me once
Wednesday, when my mother was in the hospital I read to her from Psalm 139. It helped to reassure us both that we both were well-known and well-loved. I read it at her memorial service:
O LORD, you have searched me and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
you know it completely, O LORD.
You hem me in--behind and before;
you have laid your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
too lofty for me to attain.
Where can I go from your Spirit?
Where can I flee from your presence?
If I go up to the heavens, you are there;
if I make my bed in the depths, you are there.
If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.
If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide me
and the light become night around me,"
even the darkness will not be dark to you;
the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you.
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place.
When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
your eyes saw my unformed body.
All the days ordained for me
were written in your book
before one of them came to be.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them,
they would outnumber the grains of sand.
When I awake,
I am still with you.
My thoughts are with you and your dear friend. I know this is a very hard time for you.
thank ou Bebu, now I wonder who on earth I shot my mouth off to over at slippys. I don't post often there, but there are some very nice people who post there.
I really appreciated the scripture. Funny you should post on this thread, I thought b/c of what I said said you were mad. And it is you that shares a beautiful scripture with me.
yes stilla, there are a frightening number of religions that are very similar to jws. especially here in the Bible Belt. So many ways to foul up your life. I recall my dad reading 'the plain truth' so many years ago, it used to lay around the house the way the WT and A did. (can't recall the abbreviation now they use for the awake-)
I know that once someone is in your heart and soul, and mind, they don't ever really leave you.
