If modern day JW could stone apostates would they?
VIa "new LIght" of course. Would they truly follow it as scriptual bashing of evil ones forsaking their god Jehovah, all this old light changing into new light makes one go hmmm........Regards nojw
Hi there 86 :)
After reading this posted to one of my threads:
And you're perfectly happy with calling God a liar. Nice going Essie. You're on thin ice.
READ THAT BIBLE for once.
I have no doubt that some JW's would be ready to not only throw those stones, but get
them out of the quarry too with their own bare hands *lol*
p.s. Is there no way to block certain posters on this message board in your
preferences so you see them? Just curious...
The Four Agreements:
Be Impeccable With Your Word
Don't Take Anything Personally
Don't Make Assumptions
Always Do Your Best
In a heartbeat.
No one ever went broke underestimating the stupidity of Jehovah's Witnesses
You bet your a$$ they would - there would be lines around the block for a chance to throw stones.
The GB would probably set up a kangaroo court to convict apostates to the stoning arena they would erect just for that purpose.
Sorry, nowayjw, but the lead-in is irrestible!
CROWD OF WOMEN:
Matthias, son of Deuteronomy of Gath.
Do I say 'yes'?
STONE HELPER #1:
You have been found guilty by the elders of the town of uttering the name of our Lord, and so, as a blasphemer,...
...you are to be stoned to death.
Look. I-- I'd had a lovely supper, and all I said to my wife was, 'That piece of halibut was good enough for Jehovah.'
He's said it again!
Yes! Yes, he did! He did!...
Did you hear him?!
Yes! Yes, we did! We did!...
Are there any women here today?
No. No. No. No...
Very well. By virtue of the authority vested in me--
[CULPRIT WOMAN stones MATTHIAS]
Oww! Lay off! We haven't started yet!
Come on! Who threw that? Who threw that stone? Come on.
She did! She did! He did! He! He. He. Him. Him. Him. Him. He did.
Sorry. I thought we'd started.
Go to the back.
Always one, isn't there? Now, where were we?
Look. I don't think it ought to be blasphemy, just saying 'Jehovah'.
Oooh! He said it again! Oooh!...
You're only making it worse for yourself!
Making it worse?! How could it be worse?! Jehovah! Jehovah! Jehovah!
I'm warning you. If you say 'Jehovah' once more--
[MRS. A. stones OFFICIAL]
Right. Who threw that?
Come on. Who threw that?
She did! It was her! He! He. Him. Him. Him. Him. Him. Him.
Was it you?
Well, you did say 'Jehovah'.
[CROWD stones MRS. A.]
Stop! Stop, will you?! Stop that! Stop it! Now, look! No one is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle!
Do you understand?! Even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say 'Jehovah'.

[clap clap clap]
Englishman who is quite aware that he's posted this one before!
They would use modern technology, eg. JCB CATERPILLER ETC, and drop the biggest boulders possible from the highest height and spit on the remains...loving kind are,nt they.
Hope this finds you feelin better :>
I believe they could do so,with no remorse.
When I think of how they use loaded words to objectify those who have left....'apostates',evil ones,evil slave class,followers of satan,etc etc etc......these words remove any 'humanity' making them merely objectionable objects.Once a group is viewed as no longer human,its quite easy to do away with them....the nazis did that with the jews,,,,,,genocide has always had its inception with objectification of a targeted group...JMO,FWIW,hugs,Tina
OHHHHHH YA, even my almost kinda b/f at the time, said as much, when I said that this was not like it was supposed to be 'first century Christianity." and he said, "be thankful were not back there or we'd have to stone you". I was too upset at the time to reason with him, but ummm in the 1st century who was doing the stoning and who was being stoned. HMMMMM... ohhh ya the TRUE christians were the ones being stoned, so those casting them were the BAD GUYS, the Pharasis AKA GB. They actually condem themselves when they say that! DUMB!!!
HAHAH Englishman, reminds me of something I posted on H2O a while back!
If I’d been tried on H2O here’s what part of my trial might have sounded like:
JW’S: An Apostate! An Apostate! An Apostate! We've got an Apostate! An Apostate!
FRED HALL: We have found an Apostate, might we disfellowship her?
JW’S: Disfellowship her! Disfellowship!
YK: How do you know she is a Apostate?
FRIDAY: She looks talks one.
YK: Bring her forward.
VENICE: I'm not a Apostate. I'm not a Apostate.
YK: But they say you speak like one.
VENICE: It’s all things they have taught.
JW’S: No, we didn't... no.
VENICE: the WTS is not a true prophet; it's a false one.
FRED HALL: Well, we did change some things.
YK: The dates?
FRED HALL: And some doctrines -- but she is a Apostate!
JW’S: Disfellowship her! Apostate! Apostate! Disfellowship her!
YK: Did you teach her these things?
JW’S: No, no... no ... yes. Yes, yes, a bit, a bit.
FRED HALL: She has got a different Bible.
YK: What makes you think she is a Apostate?
7: Well, she’s done research on our religion.
7: Yes, she found out the truth!
FRIDAY: Disfellowship her anyway!
JW’S: Disfellowship! Disfellowship her!
YK: Quiet, quiet. Quiet! There are ways of telling whether
she is a Apostate.
JW’S: Are there? What are they?
YK: Tell me, what do you do with Apostates?
JW’S: Disfellowship, disfellowship them up!
YK: And what do you disfellowship apart from Apostates?
FRED HALL: More Apostates!
YK: So, why do we disfellowship Apostates?
7: B--... 'cause they're made of wood...?
JW’S: Oh yeah, yeah...
YK: So, how do we tell whether she is made of wood?
FRED HALL: Build a bridge out of her.
YK: Aah, but can you not also build bridges out of stone?
FRIDAY: Oh, yeah.
YK: Does wood sink in water?
FRED HALL: No, no.
FRIDAY: It floats! It floats!
FRED HALL: Throw her into the pond!
JW’S: The pond!
YK: What also floats in water?
FRED HALL: Bread!
7: Very small rocks!
FRED HALL: Cider!
FRIDAY: Great gravy!
FRED HALL: Cherries!
7: Churches -- churches!
FRIDAY: Lead -- lead!
Milton H: A duck.
YK: Exactly! So, logically...,
FRED HALL: If... she.. weighs the same as a duck, she's made of wood.
YK: And therefore--?
FRED HALL: An Apostate!
JW’S: An Apostate!
YK: We shall use my larger scales!
YK: Right, remove the supports!
JW’S: An Apostate! An Apostate!
VENICE: It's my lawyer!!
JW’S: Disfellowship her! Disfellowship! [yelling]
YK: Who are you who are so wise in the ways of science?
MILTON H.: I am a MILTON H., of the GB.
YK: My liege!
MILTON H.: Good Sir knight, will you come with me to Brooklyn,
and join us on the Governing Body?
YK: My liege! I would be honored.
MILTON H.: What is your name?
YK: You Know, my leige.
MILTON H.: Then I dub you Sir YK, Knight of the GB table.
In previous centuries Catholics and Protestants generally justified burning each other at the stake by saying: "it may kill the body, but it purifies the soul. We're actually ensuring the person's eternal salvation."
No doubt JW's would say something similar: "we may be killing them now, but at least we give them the chance of a resurrection...."
It's the same mentality that is displayed in the area of shunning.
I personally think that Ted Jackass GB man would have picture in yearbook on now to throw first stone, worked with him in f.s. he always had a problem in hiding hugh wolftail in lambcoat...nojw
