    That Christ has been invisibly present since 1914 or 1918 or whatever, a date they pulled out of their hind ends!

    What really gets me is their claim that Jehovah accepted the Bible Students as his cleansed organization in 1919, but they still believed all sorts of things then that Witnesses declare to be unscriptural now, including observing holidays, the cross, the Trinity, things they say are the beliefs of "false religion". They weren't even known by the designation of Jehovah's Witnesses then.

    How does that work? Well, it doesn't.

    The resurrection of Abraham, Issac and Jacob in 1925 to live in the "House of Princes" (Beth Sarim) in San Diego, California and drive Cadillacs.

    The idea that Jesus was raised as a "spirit creature" is contrary to the words of Jesus Himself.

    Luke 24:39 (English Standard Version)

    39 See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have."

    All the best,

    There are lots of these. Here are a few:

    (1) that God does not grant forgiveness of certain sins unless the sinner confesses to elder(s)

    (2) that Jesus is not the mediator for all Christians (Witnesses teach he's mediator only for 144,000 in spite of 1 Tim. 2:5)

    (3) that women are allowed to give parts on meetings (in spite of Paul's clear command at 1 Cor. 14:34-35)

    (4) Everything related to dates and numbers (1914, 1919, 1260 days, 1290 days, 7 trumpet blasts, etc.) is completely made-up and unverifiable.

    That True Christians™ did not, should not and will not observe holidays or birthdays. In fact, Romans 14:5 leaves the decision of whether to observe a certain day or not up to the individual.

    Wow that totally just opened my eyes. I have never once heard this scripture read at any meetings nor did the person who studied with me ever bring it up! That makes me angry.

    What solid scriptural basis is there for judicial committees? They are Jewish sanhedrin courts---not Christian anything!

    "Jesus is not God" is clearly against many scriptures.

    Matthew 1:23 (New International Version)

    23 "The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel"—which means, "God with us."

    John 20:28 (New International Version)

    28 Thomas said to him, "My Lord and my God!"

    Hebrews 1:3 (New International Version)

    3 The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.

    Philippians 2:5-6 (New International Version)

    5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus:
    6 Who, being in very nature God,
    did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,

    All the best,

    it seems that judicial committees mirror Jesus trial minimus. Which is not surprising in the WT org.

    What else is not provavble? no beards, 7 gentile times, 2 classes, FDS, Jesus return in 1914, a Babylonish captivity period and subseqent freedom and appointment....a governing body

    blood...salvation only to JWs...

    Was Jesus our God? Consider these two scriptures:

    Acts 7:59 While they were stoning him, Stephen prayed, "Lord Jesus, receive my spirit."

    Ecclesiastes 12:7 and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

    Spirit returns to who?

    Stephen cries out to who?

    Where does it say, in the Bible, that any man should judge his brother as elders do?

    Where is smoking a cigar a violation of a real scripture---not just an interpertation?
