    Well friends what is before us in the coming year?

    I often end my postings with 'Live long and prosper in wisdom and health.' This live long quote is taken from Star-trek and it was the late wonderful Leonard Nimoy who suggested it from his Orthodox Jewish background. It comes from the book of Deuteronomy I believe. Well i could not wish any of you anything better except to add 'peace' as well.

    WE have all seen some terrible things emanate from the 'church' we once followed and changes a re made at whim or at the sharp end of legal accounts.

    So watchtower I ask Quo Vadis, where are you going?

    and to all here I wish, live long and prosper in wisdom, health and peace.

    Live long and prosper Zeb. Can you do the hand thing? I can but some can't, might be something genetic so I've heard.

    As each year comes to an end and the new year starts, I can't help but think of how foolish we were believing in the WT fantasy of "living forever in a new world". I celebrate my relatively new found freedom and thank many of you here on this forum for your words of wisdom, insight, courage, and support. Live long and prosper!

    Yep we're on the threshold of 2019! The 'New Year' is "just around the corner"! We're in the last day(s) of this "old year"! In the coming "new year" we may be reunited with loved ones and may see friendships with former friend "resurrected"! Just imagine the possibilities that lie ahead!

    Yep 2019. Only 44 years since we were promised that this system would come to an end.

    Yep 2019 and no Armageddon!

    Live long and prosper!

    just saying!

    Yes, may we all have a prosperous year!

    My how quickly 100 years have passed since 1919 when Jesus took note of the small group of International Bible Students and decided that he would use them as his sole channel to communicate with all of mankind because of their heart condition and evidently they had a printing press. Of course, the WTBTS did not know that they were chosen until they invented the idea decades later.

    And communicate for the King of Kings they have with even more countless failed prophesies and expectations that have produced absolutely nothing of any consequence except to rob honest hearted individuals of life with realistic expectations for the future, embarrass, ridicule, and mock individuals that tried to lead a "normal" life; having a family, purchasing a home, sending their children to school, seeking higher education, purchasing health and life insurance, or visiting medical professionals for regular checkups.

    This year is truly a time to celebrate and observe 100 years of the self-proclaimed Faithful and Discrete Slave's work for the Master, as they have undeniably proven to be neither Faithful nor Discrete!

    The Master doesn't need to return either spiritually or physically to make an inspection as time has proven that any "Talent" they received has been fraudulently diverted to lyingly and deceitful tactics to fleece and feed off of the gullible sheep that have been "skinned and thrown about". Individuals that were promised to "Throw their burden upon Jesus and he will make their load light" have grown old and perished below the oppressive heal of the New York and Pennsylvania's Corporations' man-made rules and imposed fear and guilt, ending in bitterness and disappointment for Millions that have Died and Millions more of the Living that will Die with unfulfilled expectations.

    Bring in the New Year and let the Ball Drop at Midnight as a foreshadowing of things to come for this Imposter and Snake Oil Salesman. Now is the Time!
