Good one, Mrs. Jones.
What a messed up Cult the JW religion is
Nah, I haven´t read COC...I don´t read porn.
You liar! You look at porn all the time you habitual masturbating virgin.
Hmm....So you take the word of ONE crazy old coot like Franz and hold it as gospel. ONE crazy guy who got booted out of the organization and his word is now holy?
PUHLEASE! Give me a break. Guy was a jerk. He was probably the one molesting etc.
Just to make it clear, if i ever met someone who spoke with such gross disrespect for a guy like Ray Franz. By the time i had finished with them, they would make Stephen Hawking look like he could run a 4 minute mile!
Apostate: a person who forsakes his religion, cause, party, etc. (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/apostate)
This makes Jesus and Paul the most well known apostates in history. Any true believer, like you Bane, is out of their league here, and the longer you stay here the chances improve that you change your viewpoint. The WT warns against reading apostate literature for a reason: your brain will process the information in the background. Like this idea about Paul and Jesus: they were apostate. They left their religion, and formed another. They attacked by reason and logic the fallacies of their old belief, and forged another one. (I know that most scholars say that Jesus had no intention of forming another religion, I am just stating what most christians believe, that Jesus is the one that made the break from judaism). Just like a lot of people here. They left what they used to believe. But apostate has become a loaded term, a derogatory word, used to describe those who have left a group. The remaining believers, like the WT and Bane the angry witness, have no way to come to terms with someone who has left, and go on the attack. They attack the person, rather than the idea, because the WT especially has no deep scholarship to fall back on; they are unable to defend their beliefs in blood transfusion refusal, generation, etc, in open debate formats with well educated questioners; they go on the attack against the people instead of the argument, the well known ad hominem attack.
No deep scholarship? Talk about an understatement. Their scholarship is shallower than a rain puddle.
Sounds like this expose' of the WTS GB political voting of matters instead of being led by holy spirit pricked BANE's nerves. That was terrible of BANE to make that acusation about Ray, when faithful WTS GB member Leo Greenlees was the one who had molestation acusations made against him by active JW's.
Keep up the good work BANE. You representing the JW's with your crazy rhetoric against these valid WTS criticisms will wake up more and more JW lurkers.
Think About It
BANE–noun 1. a person or thing that ruins or spoils: Gambling was the bane of his existence. 2. a deadly poison (often used in combination, as in the names of poisonous plants): wolfsbane; henbane. 3. death; destruction; ruin. 4. Obsolete . that which causes death or destroys life: entrapped and drowned beneath the watery bane. I can't decide which definition fits you best. BANE, which one do you like best?
BANE - I didn't say I hate you, I said YOU were hateful. Jesus was not hateful. He exposed the hypocrisy of the Jewish religious leaders. He viewed the people as abused and in need of a shepherd. You are acting hateful towards people here who have recognized the hypocrisy of a religion. You are acting hateful towards Ray Franz, who, if you actually did read his book(s), would find was a very loving and humble Christian man. He was without hatred toward any of Jehovah's Witnesses, all the way up to the top.
Jesus words ... (Luke 23:34) . . ."Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.". . . by his words and deeds, it is evident that Ray was a true follower of Christ.
Bane, you're so much of a f*cking idiot it's a wonder that you haven't caved in on yourself with the vaccum that's in your head.
" High, I am a pioneer. I am in the streets day after day. Sometimes at 7 in the morning."
Bane's a pioneer? that would mean your in good standing in the congregation
and if your in good standing, how can you be here on an apostate website?
Bane , you're a joke.
Bane it's Sunday , shouldn't you be at the KH... maybe I need to have a talk with your elders.
