    God put to death this couple for not being honest and transparent with dedicated funds. Shouldn't the one and only true organization of god also be 100% transparent and honest with dedicated funds? You would think!

    Right. Like maybe having a box marked Pedophile Defense Fund at the back of the Hall instead of using money that was put into the Worldwide Work box?


    Two thousand years later, Jehovah approves the actions of the Governing Body selling many local Kingdom Halls and New York properties in the $$$billions. Jehovah also sent his holy spirit upon all construction committees and free laborers of the new Warwick Bethel headquarters. WHAT A LOVING GOD!

    Good point. It is the only account in the New Testament where 2 early Christians were executed supposedly by holy spirit. I wonder why that does not happen today in the WT organization if they are basing procedures on the bible?

    Yes to think of God's severe penalty for a little deceit accompanying a gift of mercy, what the hell does he have in store for these Faith and Discreet bull shit artist?

    no...No...NO...the one and only true organization is just imitating the apostles. They wanted MORE, and never did make a written accounting of the money they demanded (that anyone knows of). Remember, accountability only goes one way, from the peons towards the Gibbering Boobies.

    So even in the 1st century it was "all about the money"! Ananias and Sapphira are executed because they withheld some money from the governing body WTF! Other bible characters get to murder, lie, steal, break the sabbath, screw another man's wife, screw your wife's handmaiden, burn you own kids in a fire, etc. and they get forgiveness. But cheat the gb out of a few dollars, and it's immediate death!

    I'm gonna make sure that my future contributions to the wtbts/gb get there on time and in the correct amount for fear of immediate reprisal from jehober!

    Follow the money!

    just saying!
