    "heav'n" - In one song to make heaven a 1 syllable word to rhyme.

    Gee, thanks, John Doe, for party-poop-ifying a fun thread!

    Yeah, it's downright mortifying!

    Someone needs to do a revivifying of it.

    How about the "remnant"... cuz Jehovah now is blessing them so much they are experiencing fine increases among the anointed remnant.

    I always hated the phrase "spiritual feast" or "spiritual banquet."

  • Alpaca

    Remnant is a good contender. It definitely gets the STUPID STAMP!!!!!!

    It just goes to show you how ingrained that stuff is... to a person who was never a Dub it would sound stupid...but it didn't even dawn on me 'til you mentioned it.

    Very, very stupid!!!!!!

    pretentious isnt it?

    I hate the way they use the word Christendom too. They redefine it to mean all the christian churches that are not JWs. Thats not what the word means.

    Ooooh, I remember that song! When we sang about mendacious men I pictured thin warty cretins with flowing capes and thick, dark eyebrows over long, pointy noses....scary!!!

    What the hell did they rhyme "mendacious" with and why????

    I think it was "efficacious" and I don't remember why...probably something about how God was going to preserve us from the warty cretins!
