New JWism in April broadcast?
Please don't let the JW cat out of the bag.
This gives rise to the following question: Is it possible to stay wrapped up in the bag whilst you seek refuge in Jehovah's ark of salvation? Sounds very difficult.
Sounds like a used condom to me. Sorry if that was a bit graphic.
Does anyone know what it means to be "securely wrapped up in the bag of life"?
Did anybody notice the old bible he was using?
this was not the new 2013 version it was a lot older
Yes, you too can be wrapped up in YHWH's "Body Bag of Life". Comes complete with a stretcher, usually used when refusing blood medicine...
What an odd expression.
Looks like the 2013 Bible to me. Not sure why you get the idea it's an older one.
Maybe it's a variation on the phrase of having something "in the bag" ???
They sure do love their culty little catch phrases though so who knows maybe you have to be brainwashed to understand it.
Tangential, but everyone else is doing it:
mid-18th century (originally in anatomy): French, literally ‘bottom of a sack.’
The NEB puts it more descriptively as being wrapped, the JW bible sounds like a body bag as All Time Jeff suggests.
JW org is always looking for Biblical images to sloganise with, this one is claustrophobic.
However there are many hopeless and helpless JWs who actually prefer to live their lives in the false security of being told what to do by the GB and thereby already live in a metaphorical straightjacket.
