    Wow! All these comments are so on spot!

    The WTS is SO paranoid that the newbies find anything out, that you can be disfellowshipped for apostasy for reading AND discussing older material FROM THE WT!!!

    God forbid you remind them of failed prophecies! It would not look so good with Deuteronomy 18: 20-22:

    20 “‘However, the prophet who presumes to speak in my name a word that I have not commanded him to speak or who speaks in the name of other gods, that prophet must die. 21 And in case you should say in your heart: “How shall we know the word that Jehovah has not spoken?” 22 when the prophet speaks in the name of Jehovah and the word does not occur or come true, that is the word that Jehovah did not speak. With presumptuousness the prophet spoke it. You must not get frightened at him.’

    When a JW says, "Oh, that's old light," I think some good responses might be:

    -- "Do you really think the WT leaders were being led by Jehovah's spirit when they came up with that?"

    -- "Isn't it an insult to Jehovah to call that 'light' at all?"

    -- "If Jehovah didn't tell them that, then where do you think it came from?"

    DING, all good comments to be prepared in making a reply. (Prov. 27:11)

    FadeToBlack: I think as Ouibelette (sorry about spelling) mentioned recently, their comparison about Apollo's progressive understanding of the truth and the way it works in WT land fell short.

    Thanks for remembering my comments!

    For reference, here is a link to that thread for review:

    Your analogy to the progressive nature of learning increasingly more advanced math concepts is very good. I'm going to use it!

    I hope your efforts to reason with your wife are successful. Keep up the good work.
