If anyone perceives the Jehovah's Witnesses as a strange bunch , then please do take a look at THIS site:
Regrettably, a condition of registration is that their beliefs are not to be questioned on the forums.
I will find a way around this by careful syntax . This is far too good a chance to play one of my favourite games (it's called "Devil's Advocate").
The Landover site is helping me hurtle ever closer to the inevitable conclusion that organised religion is , as we say in back home in England when dismissive of utter nonsense , a Load of Bollocks.
The best route to salvation is , probably , to follow the Ten Commandments (or maybe Nine , if you still accept JW teaching about the Sabbath).Religious debate about the precise interpretation of Scripture is tremedously enjoyable , but , if the goal is to arrive at universal agreement , it is ultimately futile .Of course , if the purpose of debate is to expose hypocrisy , it is worthwhile.
And if on Judgment Day the Big Guy condemns you , ask Him :
"If You were truly concerned about my salvation - why did You give me so many choices of religions to follow? I kept Your commandments - what more did you want ?"
Of course , any good and loving father protects and guides his children by ensuring they have only narrow choice of alternatives.
