    Why, in all of the illustrations in J.W literature of the anointed in heaven are they portrayed as men with beards.?

    Aren`t their women in your organization that are women who are of the Anointed ? It`s not just restricted to men ?

    So why are all the illustrations in your publications portrayed as only men ?

    {J.W}. because in heaven their is no gender neither male or female .

    {You}. If their is no gender neither male or female then why are those pictured as having beards ? doesn`t that give the impression that they are all male ? and that their are no females ruling with Christ Jesus.?

    how do you answer this conundrum ?

    After Jesus died and the Apostles ran the Christian church in the first century where did they meet for worship?

    (In each others homes or they might rent a room - last supper)

    And when Jesus was on the earth, where did he reside?

    (Nowhere to lay his head - Matt 8 v 20)

    So why does your organisation feel the need to own thousands of kingdom halls and build luxurious HQ's in Warwick and London?

    (Need to support worldwide work ...)

    Well with the internet and JWTV surely they just need a warehouse and a few offices out in the sticks and not take widows houses and Sophia's ice cream money?

    (Lalalalala/Apostate/I can't hear you!")

    When God said "Do not add" to scripture (various places) did He know that Jehovah's Witnesses would have to disobey that instruction in order to put His name back in the bible?

    When God said "Do not add" to scripture (various places) did He know that Jehovah's Witnesses would have to disobey that instruction in order to add words to change the meaning to the bible?

    Referring to the added 'other's in several places [in Colossians 2:9 and others,] to make it seem as the bible states Jesus was created

    There isnt a single verse in the bible that condemns slavery. In fact, there are many saying it's ok to own a slave. With that in mind, if it were legal in this country to own slaves, could i own one and still become a JW?

    All the scriptures that speak of beards recommend that men have have them. Why are JW men dissuaded from having a beard? Can you provide Scriptural reasons that make it obvious that the 'no beard' policy is from god, please? ...and not from men that are not infallible or inspired?

    Bonus question: Do you think Mr Lett would win a gurning competition?

    It seems to me that JWs believe they know a lot of things that are beyond what is written.

    1. How do JWs know that the Great Crowd of Revelation 7 was forming in 1935?

    The Watchtower had expressed the hope that a convention scheduled for May 30 to June 3, 1935, in Washington, D.C., U.S.A., would be “a real comfort and benefit” to those pictured by Jehonadab. And that it proved to be! In a stirring talk on “The Great Multitude,” delivered to about 20,000 conventioners, J. F. Rutherford ... declared: “Behold! The great multitude!” There was a hush, followed by loud cheering.”The Watchtower May 1, 2001 pp.14-15 “Behold! The Great Crowd

    Is 1935 in the Bible? How was this information conveyed?

    How many Great Crowd members are alive today? How can they be numbered?

    If the conventioners in 1935 averaged 20 years old, how old would they be today?

    How many of these have gone through the great tribulation?

    2. How do JWs know that the sounding of the 7 trumpets introduced in Revelation 8 got underway in 1922? (Revelation 8 verses 1-2; 6-7)

    When the sounding of the seven trumpets got under way in 1922, the Bible Student convention at Cedar Point, Ohio, (Rev.8:7) featured a talk by the president of the Watchtower Society, J. F Rutherford, based on the scripture, ”The kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Revelation Its Grand Climax at Hand. p. 172

    Is 1922 in the Bible? How about Cedar Point, Ohio?

    3. How do JWs know that the apostle Peter went to heaven in the spring of 1918?

    “In 1918 he (the apostle Peter) was resurrected to the heavens along with the other faithful members of Christ’s congregation who had died prior to that time." WT Feb. 15, 1966 p. 123 Does Peter Now Use the Keys of the Kingdom?

    Is 1918 in the Bible? How was this information conveyed?

    4. How do JWs know that Jesus was conducting an investigative temple judgment in the fall of 1918?

    “Evidence from the prophecies of the Bible and their fulfillment in our time indicates that Jesus Christ came with his Father, Jehovah God, to the temple for judgment in 1918 C.E.” WT 67 6/1 p. 345 The Wedding That Brings Worldwide Rejoicing

    Is 1918 in the Bible? How was this information conveyed?

    5. How do JWs know that Jesus concluded this 1918 judgment by rejecting every church on earth with the exception of your organization?

    “When Jesus came to God’s spiritual temple in 1918 for the purpose of judging men, Christendom was rejected.The Watchtower, August 1, 1960, p. 462

    Why 1918? How was this information conveyed?

    6. How do JWs know that Jesus appointed the Faithful and Discrete Slave in 1919?

    “On arriving’ to inspect the ‘slave’ in 1918, Christ found a spirit-anointed remnant of faithful disciples who since 1879 had been using this journal [the Watchtower] and other Bible-based publications to provide spiritual ‘food at the proper time.’ He acknowledged them as his collective instrument, or ‘slave,’ and in 1919 entrusted them with the management of all his earthly belongings.”Watchtower 2007 Apr 1 p.22

    Is 1919 a biblical date? Who exactly was appointed?

    What were the names of those selected ones?

    On what grounds were they selected?

    Do you know what the Bible Students were teaching and practicing in 1919?

    did Jesus say "this" generation would pass away or not?

    either way, wt wrong.

    If it is the sheep, will they pass away after all these things happen.

    if it is the anointed, they must pass away before all these things happen

    only the wicked generation fits the bill, and that includes the slave, wrong or evil.

    Can you please show me the scripture where it says god will mislead his people until a later date when his sayings will be accurate and true?

    This is my favourite question because the Washtowel quoted is more recent.
