    I hope he bought that pig dinner...

    The words of Matt 5v32 were uttered by the Jesus character in the Gospel that is a work of Fiction. The speaker was an Orthodox Jew, his listeners also, so they would have taken him to be talking about the sexual sins mentioned in Leviticus etc.

    We cannot justifiably put a 21st century perspective upon these words, and yet, the JW org will broaden the meaning of "porneia" to suit anything they wish to condemn, anal sex for example.

    What was considered sexual sin by the speaker "Jesus" and his "audience" ? is the question to ask. Your answer should then not rule the way you conduct yourself, it is only a "Book Club" question.

    DATA-DOG: I hope he bought that pig dinner...

    He may not have bought the pig dinner, but I'm sure he caressed it a little...porcine-human foreplay.

    Yes, the Watchtower is moving forward. Steadily forward.

    The next edition of the NWT will no doubt have LGBTQ in 1 Corinthians 6

    9 Or do you not know that unrighteous people will not inherit God’s Kingdom?+ Do not be misled.* Those who are sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, the LGBTQ people+ 10 thieves, greedy people,+drunkards,+ revilers,* and extortioners will not inherit God’s Kingdom.

    Well.... there was that poor woman who couldn’t divorce her husband who was having an affair with a sheep ( or was it a cow?)
