    The bible states that children that dishonor their parents should be put to death, so maybe this is why children are more cheeky these days, parents aren't having their children put to death like in biblical times.

    Holy crap they are really reaching. I heard back in the 70s if god does not bring the big A soon he will have to apologize to Sodom.

    Those words were written by Peter 62-64 A.D. , almost 2000 years ago. How near is near? How close is close?But the end of all things has drawn close." - 1 Peter 4:7 NWTRevised and in the mean time billions and billions have died many thinking they too were living in the last days.

    Well let`s all hope it is the end of the JW/WT religion because its long well overdue.

    The end is near because Jehovah is speeding up the work.

    w03 7/15 p. 20 par. 21 - “Today, he is speeding up the final spiritual harvest.” (Isaiah 60:22)

    This is org reverse-speak for God slowing the work down, as witnessed (TM) by the unprecedented cuts in literature production, unprecedented cuts in actual preaching by JW's, (think trolley-zombies) the unprecedented sell-off of KH's & Branches, and the termination of District Overseers, older Circuit Overseers, Special Pioneers, and countless Bethelites.

    Yup, the great expansion can be seen by looking through the wrong end of the org's binoculars.

    Last month they said to not watch any news so how could they know world conditions?

    Did they say that road to nowhere? I'm not surprised! My JW sister hasn't had a working TV for over thirty years, I don't know if she looks at news online. Ignorance is bliss.

    The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.”

    Thank you so much Lets Think! I was just thinking about that quote from Plato but I couldn't remember how to find it. From the Republic isn't it? The more things change the more they stay the same eh?
