i mean, is that not like having a free pass to do as you please?
as long as you freely forgive, when people sin against you, then does that mean our father will forgive us 99 times when we sin against him?.
sure wouldn't be hard to convince people to obey that command would it?

this is a continuation of a discussion i've had with abaddon.
we were at loggerheads in the beginning but i'm coming round to his way of thinking to a certain extent.
i still haven't given up my belief in an intelligent creator but at the same time there is evidence for evolution which cannot be discounted.

this coming from a person raised "in the truth".. recently i shared a scripture with my sister - she is ill and will have to have some pretty serious surgery.
i shared isa 53:4,5 with her.
(this is the niv version for those that don't have a bible handy.).

hello, i am new to this board, i am not a jehovahs witness however i studied with them for years, i went out into service a couple of times, but i havent done anything in 4 years.
i am so confused.
i always have been scared of the last days thing, but i could never accept the fact that while i was in the meetings, my husband and parents were all at home and the witnesses would tell me that unless they changed and started coming to the meetings that they would be killed!

read ezekiel 40:1 in the twenty-fifth year of our exile, at the beginning of the year, on the tenth of the month, in the fourteenth year after the fall of the cityon that very day the hand of the lord was upon me and he took me there.
--- one verse showing that babilonian captivity is not the same as jerusalem destruction.
ofcourse if we start to count the 70 years from babilonian invasion into whole region (jeremia is talking about whole region not only jersualem and even not only judea)

okay now i will give you time to pick your jaw up off the floor while i explain what i mean.
i now belive that religion is just one of the many forms of control that the powers that be (hereafter refered to as 'tha man') use to control people and keep them under foot.
we know how the current administration uses the religious right to keep the electorate in line, but i also believe the wts serves tha man in the same way.
