    Witness yearbooks are FULL of experiences where Jehovah saved a poor Witness who prayed for help...and the Soldiers walked passed and did not see them etc, etc. However, other brothers prayed and still got executed by Gillotine so...why does Gods will allow such things? Isn't this just random chance put down as God's will? Poor Witness family who's pioneer dad was executed, yet another "Publisher" brother can brag that Jehovah amazingly protected him from certain death.......are you an infant for believing such obvious drivel?

    I remember the great tsunami which killed 300,000 (?) people, babies and all.

    There was a newspaper report about a scandinavian woman who later found her son, believed drowned.

    "Thank God for this miracle", the paper trumpeted!

    Go figure ....

    You have to believe that God does his best. But sometimes he needs a break and will go grab a beer from the celestial fridge or take a dump in the heavenly crapper. When he gets back... it's too late.

    You just have to have faith and believe.

    God needs "Dead Jehovah`s Witness`s" for Advertising..

    .."Satan is persecuting Jehovah`s Witness`s!!..

    We Are Not Worthy"We are the only True Religion because,Satan Hates Jehovah!!" We Are Not Worthy

    Its just junk propaganda to make it look like this religion is god's own chosen religion and therefore protects

    all who are involved with it , in other words you'll be protected from harm if you join the JWS, now

    and at Armageddon. Just about all Christian based faiths do this in some way or another,

    call it the glue that holds and keeps supporting members at their feet and in control.

    Its just that they push the we are the only organization that has god's approval , over all other faiths.

    As Jehovah likes to put it, he is away to "print a new awake"...

    Yes, this is exactly what happened in the garden of Eden, he turned his back for two seconds and didn't keep his eyes on that nasty Satan

    and look what all occurred out that one single event.

    007, this paradox(?) can be found in all theistic religions (with the exclusion of Deism). It is pure egocentricity and rationalization. At no time does the believer think, once his life has been spared, that the reason he was left behind was because God hated or despised him and couldn't bear to see him at the pearly gates or paradise.

    Only Pioneers find five dollars in the trash can, just in time to buy a few gallons of gas so they can make it to meeting. Even when I was an elder, I would never put such stuff in my meeting parts.

    However, this does raise some questions regarding God's care for his servants. David said that as he grew old he had never seen the righteous left entirely, or his offspring begging for bread. Jesus said to seek first the kingdom and all these other things will be added to you.

    Certainly David experience hunger and thirst in his lifetime. So, what did he mean? God has certainly provided a head on our shoulders and other abilities to provide for ourselves with effort. But when such fails at times, much of our assistance seems to come from godly associates who see our plight and offer assistance. This truly is a provision from God and we can be thankful. We look after orphans and widows in their tribulations, and when we see someone in need, we don't just say - go keep warm and well-fed.

    Any other ideas?

    Didn't Jesus say to the members of his New Covenant to expect prison and sometimes premature death? If some escape that fate, it's only a small bonus.
