This is where I get confused on Christianity and forgiveness, love and compassion.
There are two sides to every story and while I don't understand the JW perspective, this is thread discussing that, if one doesn't have a beneficial remark, is any remark required?
Good point. I wondered the same thing.
On the other side, since the 1914 is touted so much there has to be a chart/graph/spreadsheet someplace that allows clearly one to say ok we are starting here...and then due to this we add, and due to this scripture we add...
I'm really finding in life if you want someone to understand something, or do something, or give something....make it easy for them...lay the cards on the table...
From what I've seen of Ruby's posts I'd assume her interest in expanding her knowledge and exploring concepts/ideas foriegn to her is sincere.
Yes, my curiosity is sincere.
And from what I've seen of mee's posts they are nothing but sincere, you gotta admire faith...
I try to admire faith but that is a failing I live with. I can better understand and accept a person's faith if the data is on the table so I know why they believe as they do. So you're right on, Wil, in your suggestion. I would be interested in seeing the actual biblical data or argument that fixes 1914 as a special date.
Mee, I understand you are excited to be living in these "last times" as you understand it. I was taught that there is more to life than exitement and thrills. Is this not part of JW teachings? I ask because it seems you end every post with your feelings of being thrilled, as though that were a solid foundation for faith. And I find this somewhat puzzling.
