my understanding of the "big snooze" is that the essay maintains that jws have misrepresented quotes from secular sources.
is this message board not an obvious misrepresentation?
it claims to represent jehovahs witnesses (in its title)yet the vast majority of posters are anti jw and many have been expelled.

this has been bothering me for some time now and i'm hoping that some here will shed some light on the subject.. paul goes to great lengths to tell us that we can't earn god's grace (undeserved kindness).. the wts also says that.. but, the bible does give us some do's and don'ts.
the bible does tell us about individuals who would be bad association.
it also tells us about some sins that would cause the sinner to be ineligible for the new kingdom.. so do we in fact have to earn the undeserved kindness?

i had lunch this week with some business colleagues and one of them complained that at her office there is now a "no merry christmas" policy which includes not saying merry christmas, not decorating the office for christmas, no christmas party, no secret santa games or exchanging of gifts.
i asked why all the rules and she said that there is one woman (out of nearly 150 employees) who is a jw and office management has decided the best way to handle the situation without excluding this woman or offending her in any way is to eliminate all reference to the holidays.
as you can imagine the other employees are in an uproar.

i was just wondering if anyone here votes in the elections?
considering how badly that some of us did on that test, i wonder if anyone is even concerned with politics?
do you care who your congressman is for your state?
