ok, for those of us non-, and never before-jw's, will someone please explain what the big deal is about having responsibility for microphones is all about?
we do use microphones in our church, but ....i mean whoever is in charge of any technology that day sets up microphones.
it could be anyone in the church, male or female, young or old, the pastor, the janitor.

jw literature tries to persuade us that the star was actually sent by satan to guide the evil magi to the site of jesus and his family.
yet, the bible tells us in genesis that god was the creator of all the stars in the heavens.
nowhere that i am familiar with does the bible state that satan made any of the stars or any other celestial object.

sorry, i know the questions asked at baptism have been posted here previously, but the search engine isn't working at this time.
also, my dil is planning to be baptized in jw organization in a few weeks and is currently studying these questions.
any advice as to how i (a "traditional" christian) can discuss this with her.

i'm posting this not as a criticism, but as a perspective from a non-jw.
most christians would be sooooo boggled by the complete obsession with historical dates that jw's can argue back and forth about for ever it seems!
i'm not voicing an opinion here about whether there is merit to it or not.

just wanted to get your input on these thoughts before i shared it with any jw's.
1. how do you view jesus?
2. do you consider him to be the perfect man?

i am not a jehovah's witness, but my daughter-in-law is.
i attended the memorial last night.
the speaker quite clearly stated that judas did not partake of the bread and wine at the lord's supper,that he had already left, but even the nwt shows that not to be true.
