ah, talk about "proper food at the proper time" ;) thanks so much Sirona and Ezekiel3 for your insights. A relative suggested this book to me saying it would 'restore my damaged faith' in Jehovah's love.
They just get sneakier and sneakier, don't they with this stuff?
"Even if we cannot at first understand a certain account or see how it fits in with God?s personality, our study of the Bible has already taught us more than enough about Jehovah to enable us to see that he is unfailingly a loving, fair, and just God."
Yeah...I was just saying to my mom that I don't understand all the killing that went on in the OT and she said "Don't ask me to explain it, I don't understand it either" then in the same breath went on to say "but I'll die before I leave the organization."
