    Was anyone here at the Australian Melbourne Convention this weekend?

    I am just curious, if anyone that post’s here was there, besides me.

    Attendance was Fri Approx 7,500. Sat Approx 9,500, Sun 10,000.

    Of course the guilt trip continued, even the Drama showed some guy back in ancient Israel times who was a bad boy for not going to all the days of the 8 day festival, he missed the first day. Hint…Hint…

    A nd a resolution at the end, it seemed that they decided we will all do more in WTS serviced, and we say “Ai” to that.

    What are the attendance figures in the USA?

    Did he die for missing the Friday.... er.... I mean the first day?

    1974, "Divine Purpose" District Assemblies:
    To Whose Authority Do You Listen? (Jeroboam, old prophet)

    32 years ago, same drama....based on the time period in the bible, it was when the 10-tribe kingdom had formed and the king Jeroboam did not want people to travel to Jerusalem to worship. So he set up 2 golden calves, one in Dan to the north and one in Bethel. Would the Jews in the 10-tribe kingdom go to Jerusalem for any of the 8 day assemblies they had, Passover, Pentecost, Ingathering?

    I don't think there is anything in the bible about a man dying because he missed the first day of these assemblies...but the WTS has and is capable of making up things and adding them to the bible.

    Blondie! You never cease to amaze me! Your my favourite poster.

    How did you find that? Is it on the WT CD? And what did you search for?

    (plus I had the hots for Debra Harry)

    Like everything else they do even the dramas get recycled.

    Talking about recycling, I remember a poster on this forum making reference to a talk at this latest DA which alluded to the "snares of the birdcatcher" which snares included such items as pornography, entertainment and the internet.

    Well, as far back as the late 70s I distictly recall being assigned to give a talk entitled the "Snares of the Birdcatcher" Here satan was depicted as again being the author of pornography, and entertainment. Neither he, nor the WTS had been able to foresee the internet.

    All that is happening is a going around in circles. Verily hath it been said in the book of the profit$ :

    "Blessed are they who go around in circles

    For they shall be called BIG WHEELS"
