What's up, people? Been a while since I've posted. Anyhow, just thinking about 9/11 the other day as I was watching a special on tv which has made me realize that for years we were part of an organization that has looked forward to the death of the vast majority of mankind in much the same manner as the 9/11 tragedy (check out some of the pictures and witness porn from older publications especially). Peeps running for their lives, blood and soot pouring down their bodies, the look of utter horror on their faces. I'm sure that there where lots of JW's who were happily anticipating that the World Trade Center incident marked the start of the end. Disturbing! It really made me realize the fact that though we were taught to be pacifists (encouraged not fight or even argue), but the publishing company god is anything but that. We've been taught to forgive and be merciful. The publishing company God won't have the capacity to do that at Armageddon.
So here we are led to believe that out of the over 6 BILLION peeps on earth, only 6 MILLION (less than 1 percent) will survive a far-grander World Trade Center Disaster. Just recalling the looks of horror and helplessness of peeps caught up in the World Trade disaster is enough to convince me that (1) A loving God would not destroy the world, and/or do it in that manner (2) If God is going to destroy the world in that manner, I want no part in serving a bloodthirsty entity such as that.
I'm underwhelmed by an all-powerful God who can only save less than 1 percent of the population during the big blood-bath................doesn't sound to powerful at all does it?
