last week in the book study the paragraph stated that satan used "false religion" to lead people away from jehovah.
citing the teaching of false "truths" in the bible (trinity, hellfire, etc).
i almost had to comment because i do not believe this is so because i think we would all agree that just about all religions outside of jw's are way more vocal about hating the devil, satan.

a post about caffeine and coffee in the "what if the wts banned alcohol" thread jogged my memory.... back in the 70s sometime (i can't remember if it was pre-75 or post-75) a rumor started circulating around our area that at the next convention the wts was going to add caffeine and caffeine products (coffee, coke, etc) to the list of banned substances (tobacco, blood).
of course, it never happened, but for a couple of months the rumors were hot and heavy.
the rumors were easily believed by a lot of the dubs because of the "up" effects caffeine can give you and besides, the mormons banned it, there had to be a reason.

i thought i'd best make a new thread rather than add my message to the vigil thread, for example, as it might not otherwise get noticed.. yesterday afternoon i was allowed home from the hospital - but only until wednesday morning!
as many of you will know, i have been in christie cancer hospital in manchester, england, ready to undergo a stem cell transplant (in my case, stem cells taken from my blood to be returned later).

i was perusing the official website and was astounded to see that under "humanitarian efforts".
they havent updated since 9/01/05 about the hurrican relief.. you would think if they had an organized effort of relief that they would have updated the katrina info by now!
