    I don't know if you know it, but for those who don't here it is.

  • leavingwt

    Saturday, at 2 PM, they're featuring a talk about Apostates.

    Like one JW told my family, "If you read just a little bit of that apostate stuff, you'll fall out of the truth."

  • LostGeneration

    Glad to see them talk about apostates in such a public way. Its like a "pink elephant."

    Once you tell someone not to think about it, its what immediately comes to mind.

  • hamsterbait

    The Kingdumb Parables of Jesus are about to get another reinterpreting of de-interpreted reinterpretations.

    Throw out your copy of "God's Kingdom of 1000 Years has Approached" (Luke 21:8)


  • factfinder

    Thank you for posting this DagothUr!

    I wonder what the releases will be?

  • cofty

    Really sounds like its all getting dumbed down. Lots of symposiums of 10 minute talks.

    "How We Know That God's Kingdom Will Come Soon" - That should be a laugh

  • chickpea

    who can afford this shite nowadays???

    for us it was family of six driving 300 miles
    requiring 2 hotel rooms to remain in compliance
    with fire codes, plus meals for travel time and
    convention days...

    SO glad i will be home all summer working on renovations and repairs
    putting some major sweat equity in the homestead!

  • redsoxfan1393

    I have to do this in three weeks... Well atleast Saturday and Sunday. Friday is my High School graduation. I made it clear I was not going to miss that....

    Someone help me!

    Get out of the cult, reds. You need to follow Jesus as YHWH, not an organization that does not know Him.

    How do JWs use 'apostate'? By definition, it should be those who were JWs, but are no longer in the organization. Would I be considered apostate since I have never been a JW? Most counter-cult literature is from concerned Christians, not former cultists. I am not afraid to read any sources that oppose my views. Truth does not run from error. The WT is insecure, manipulative, controlling.

    As a Christian, His kingdom is now, but not yet. It has a present aspect, the rule of God, and a future eschatological aspect. Kingdom is not exclusive to JW thought. It is a biblical concept that JWs distort. As well, the King is always more important than the kingdom, so it is a waste of time to be wrong about who the King is (He is YHWH, not Michael) while talking about a paradise kingdom (one of many aspects of kingdom truth).
