    What if my grandmother had wheels? She'd be a wagon.

    What if a frog had wings? He wouldn't bump his ass so much.

    What if the JWs are right and will someda rule the world? I'd rather be dead.

    NO CHANCE. NONE. NADA. If God is anything like they say he is, I want no part of him.

    It is so refreshing to see a moment of clarity in a world of illusion - unfortuately this wasn't it! I enjoyed the joke though - thanks for the laugh.

    I dont believe its possible...

    How can the Watchtower Society be right?

    Their doctrine has no absolutes, its not even the same religion it was 100 years ago.

    Their bible isnt recognized as a viable reference by any respected bible scholars.

    They've contradicted themselves in their own published literature.

    Even if I were wrong...I rather die an eternal extinguished death from being a failed Jehovah's Witness...than spend an eternal damnation in hell from being a failed Christian who denied the deity of Christ.

    On top of that...I'd almost take any punishment over the sentence of spending eternity on a paradise earth with a bunch of back stabbing, self righteous, gossiping, lemming dubs. *hope I didnt offend anyone ;)

    Granted, perhaps they are correct about Jesus birth not being on 12/25, and there is no burning hellfire. I might give them that much. I think there's a bit of truth in everything out there. But building a whole religion on tid-bits of truth, and hysterical doctrines, is not my cup of tea.

    Anyway, who says the bible is truly the word of god? It is very corrupted. Trained reporters of this century can rarely get a news story correct, when someone is right there when the events are occuring. And today, we have cameras, live film coverage, and cam recorders. I just have a general problem with what "man" tends to write down as "god's word".

    There is no doubt in my mind that JW's are doctrinally wrong because I've done my homework. Yet they are made up a group of generally honest, sincere individuals. (We were once one of them.) I'm not going to judge individuals, but I will judge their leaders. I want no part of any of them.

    The Watchtower Society may have interpreted the bible... correctly!

    I think you need to read Crisis of Conscience. If you have read it, you need to go back and re-read who interprets the bible for the WTBS. It will surprise you. It makes the above statement "ludicrous."

    Bottom line:

    If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels but do not have love, I have become a sounding [piece of] brass or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophesying and am acquainted with all knowledge, and If I have all the faith so as to transplant mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give all my belongings to feed others, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I am not profited at all. - 1 Corinthians 13:1-3
    By their fruits you will recognize them. Never do people gather grapes from thorns or figs from thistles, do they? Likewise, every good tree produces fine fruit, but every rotten tree produces worthless fruit; a good tree cannot bear worthless fruit, neither can a rotten tree produce fine fruit. Every tree not producing fine fruit gets cut down and thrown into the fire. Really, then, by their fruits you will recognize those [men]. - Matthew 7:16-20

    Love, Scully


    I will no longer believe the jw version of who god is. . .I just won't believe that is how god wants us to see him/her. (Cruel, vindictive, inspiring fear, teaching conditional love). Nah, that just doesn't fit, for me.

    However, I think it is healthy for you to question things. Keep asking, and you will have your answers. For you, it may be going back to the jws.
