I won't follow a theme on this thread . I'm just going to supply weird quotes from the current 1/15 WT article " Keep Drawing close to Jehovah " and then you can draw your own takes and conclusions on these insane " opinions " from the WT Society.
Paragraph 3 : " Marketers cleverly convince people that they must have the latest products. One young man so passionately desired a particular tablet computer that he secretly sold one of his kidneys to buy it. What a shortsighted sacrifice ! "
Paragraph 7 : " Sickness serves Satan's purpose, for when we are sick, it is harder for us to serve Jehovah. And if we die, we cannot serve him at all. Naturally, then, we want to do what we can to stay healthy. "
Paragraph 9 : " Offering health advice or products- solicited or unsolicited - can detract from our spiritual purpose and rob others of their joy. "
Paragraph 13 : " Jehovah blesses our balanced efforts to obtain life's necessities. He does not want us to be falling asleep during meetings because of overwork or to be sitting in the Kingdom Hall worrying about money . "
Paragraph 14 : " Certain eagles are reported to have drowned when they did not release from their talons a fish that was too heavy to carry off. Could something similar happen to a Christian ? "
Paragraph 15 : " Indeed, resting our hope on our savings, investments, or ability to earn money in this system amounts to resting our hope on " the god of this system, " Satan. "
Indeed, if anybody who had never read any of Jehovah's Witnesses material reads this- they'd think they are all $hit crazy ! ( Which they are ) . I wonder if the WT Society realizes they are " resting their hope " on Satan when they bilk millions of $$$$ out of congregations and JW's investments, retirements, inheritances , property's, etc. to financially fatten their bank account ? As always I look forward to your takes, observations, and any and all comments ! Have a great day ! Peace out to all of you ! Mr. Flipper
