    I was thinking about a thread of Terry's and how the whole concept of Jesus is ruling right now only he is invisible sounds like a crazy person is speaking. Yet this is one of the major religious teachings of JW's. One that we were expected to explain to strangers by coming uninvited to their doors. Not only that but we were guilted into trying to convert as many as we could to also buy into the craziness of it all.

    There is this book or CD that I have by Julia Sweeney called "Letting go of God" and there is a line in it where she says "The invisible and the non-existent often look very much alike."

    To truly believe that Jesus is invisible right now but is still ruling the earth is really hard to follow when you truly think it through at least it is for me. To me it just sounds like a bunch of crazy people in a cult now.

    Not only is Jesus ruling invisibly, he is also showing off his new outfit to the public!

    Hey, maybe we can convince JWs to start invisibly donating to the WTS....

    In fact, I think I'll start doing that today!

    an idea cannot be too insane to not have somebody believe it. write down complete nonsense and wait a few years, you'll have a following donating their money.

    Of course Jesus is ruling invisibly from heaven right now! Can't you tell from all the invisible benefits and invisible solutions that his kingdom has brought about?

    One big problem with the JW "invisible rule" is that Satan, the Churches, and the Worldly Governments are all plainly visible.

    So, why does Jesus have to be invisible while everybody else is cavorting in the Sun?

    The answer is obvious to anyone who can think:

    They just say he is ruling invisibly because he did not come to rule visibly in 1914 like they thought he would.

    One more bogus prophecy onto the big pile they are building.

    I think I'm gonna start attending the meetings....invisibly

  • the-illuminator81

    JW - Have you been attending the meetings?

    Me - Attending.. attending.. I would like to use the term parousia.. I was present at the meetings, just like Jesus is ruling from heaven

    JW - So you didn't go?

    Me - Are you saying Jesus is not ruling?
