    If you use MS Word...

    1. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Word Options.
    2. Click Proofing.
    3. Make sure Check grammar with spelling is selected.
    4. Under When correcting grammar in Word, select the Show readability statistics check box.

    (Also, it's a good idea to make it short. In an online forum no one wants to wade through a gob of text without lots of white space. Give people a chance so they can take a breath, mkay?)

    I don't have 'Word' or Microsoft Office . I do use a Google toolbar with a spellcheck, though.

    Doesn't it show?

    Yup.It's not you. It's people like wannabe who go off and post a fat wad of poorly formatted text which could be easily summarized into a few words.

    It just seems attention-whorey to expect that anyone would read a wad of text like what he posts all the time.

    Or just keep a dictionary or two at hand...

    Or keep a second internet connection up, with one of the various online dictionaries... I prefer this one, since it has an audio pronunciation guide for most words, also... http://www.thefreedictionary.com

    Then there's this one - excellent for authors of modern novels... http://www.urbandictionary.com/

    so I guess this was the kinda thing you were talking about. I thought if was very interesting, only 34 looked at it and no one commented. So I guess I broke all the rules mentioned. Oh well, I did try.

    This is taken from a Yahoo e-mail group

    Friends, I've been doing research and can find almost nothing on this in the research aids.

    My question is this. At the end of the system, the calamity of the coming destruction will be enough to destroy most of the life on this planet. I recently saw the movie 2012 and believe this is probably the most accurate representation for me intellectually of what the end of the system will be like.

    The question is regardless of flood, fire, earthquake or whatever natural disasters are used by Jehovah to bring destruction, how will he protect his people?

    There are only two precedents for this before: 1. Flood at Noah's time, 2. Egyptians fleeing Israel

    On both occasions Jehovah was able to protect the 'small' group through divine action. However, if there are 7-8 m of us spread Geographically, how will he protect us from such calamity?

    The answer the society gives seems to simply amount to the fact that we should have 'faith' that we'll survive if we stick to Jah. However, I'd like to approach this from a practical and scientific viewpoint - practically how is Jehovah going to do this? Have any of you given this some thought? Your brother

    And this is one response (there were others, seems there is reasonable concern and thinking of how the mighty Jah will manage to destroy some seven billion or so while not making it to painful for his faithful)

    I think the last answer someone gave was best. "Faith". When the time comes some how Jehovah will tell us how our salvation will be made. Just like he has done with the other faithful servants in the past. Our goal is to listen and do just so. If he tells us to close all our windows and all our blinds and don't look outside no matter what, that is what we should do because that is what our father commands. He is the most powerful force in the universe. He made the earth along with everything else, he controls everything. I grew up in south Texas and I seen it rain on one side of the street and not on the other (I'm not saying Jehovah did that) I'm just saying he has the power to do what needs to be done at the time. Will not post the name that was here.

    My two bits worth. So if he, Jehovah (actually the governing body) tells us "fill in the monthly wt command" that is what we should do. So if "he" tells us to change our thinking to a new definition of generation we should. If he tells us to attend every book study so that when the end comes we can receive instructions for salvation we should, however if he tells us he has decided to drop the book study and call it bible study and move it to the hall creating a meeting marathon, we accept that as well. We now have faith that he will use another means (rather than that intimate book study arrangement that he said would be the means to convey life saving info) to give out life saving instructions. And it is that faith that will ultimately save us.

    It is true that if we have a strong faith like that, he (the gb) will have a little easier time of it, regarding having control over us. But I am sure that is not why he keeps spewing life controlling info through his wt magazine.
