  • DOUG EVANS

    RR,

    I see what you mean about that. I am scared that if I would get into the JW I would get disfelloshipped early on. I was wanting to get into their beliefs but I am afraid of that. I dont believe my wife would join if I did either.

    Doug

    • Doug, the Watchtower would expect complete obedience when you join. in fact before baptism, you will sit down with the elders while they ask you over 100 questions about doctrine and practices, that you will have to answer with chapter and verse.

      Any doubts you may have, will have to stay between you and the Lord, because to confine in another Witness will be detrimental. Witnesses are trained to report their own siblings if they should express any doubts in Watchtower teachings.

  • DOUG EVANS

    RR,

    Thank you for providing insight on that.

    Doug

  • DOUG EVANS

    RR,

    I sent you my email address.

    Doug

  • Dave

    Thank you Criss.Do you ever hold your conventions .

    • Christopher Johns

      Dave,
      Yes we have three here a year in our area but there is at least one convention a weekend all year. We have the general convention once a year for 6 days. We have one 2 hours away which is my favorite. We have one here where I live. This year we had two amazing elders coming who are my favorite but we had to cancel it due to this virus. Many are hosting online conventions. But I love the conventions. I love the memorial. If you ever get a chance to download the bible resources app there are a few discourses that I would recommend to be listened to. You can type “Great Crowd” or “Great Company” and one i listened to that was good as it talks about where they serve God and the other was “The Third Babylon”. It draws the parallels between what happened in the WT after the death of russell and parallels it with what happened to the church after the apostles died.

  • Dave

    To Christopher John’s.

    Because of the cowincedence, would like to share this with you. Was listening to Bible Students convention 2018 on Armageddon. They mentioned Joel 2:1-11 and said the saints are not the army. They are right, but they didnt know who it was. A few points that might help you agree it was about Babylon coming to destroy Jerusalem. Read chapter 1:6, invaded my land. 2;3 in front of them a fire consumes and behind them a flame burns. Land ahead of them is like Eden’s garden, but they leave behind them a barren wasteland; nothing escapes them .

    Did you catch what they are headed to destroy? 2 Chronicle’s 3:1 Solomon began to build the Lord’s temple in Jerusalem on Mount Moriah where the Lord had to appeared to his father David,on the place David had prepared at the threshing floor of Ornan the Jebusite.

    Genesis 2:8 The Lord God planted a garden in Eden.
    Let me know what you think.

    Dave

    • Christopher Johns

      Dave, one thing you have to know about the Bible students. We each have different views. The speaker may not have know who it was but doesn’t mean many of the brethren don’t know who it is. It was only recently that the WT changed it from JW to something else in their upcoming WT. It will change again as future developments come out. We can only guess. If you want a greater amount of discourses we have out own app called “Bible Resources”. You’ll see it and it has a cross and crown on it. Also, if you go to Columbus Bible Students we have thousands of discourses on there. On the app its called Audio Sermons. You can listen to many different ones. We also have a very popular christian show called “Christian Questions” which we have the website and the APP. Its all so amazing.

  • Dave

    To Christopher John’s.

    Let’s hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, because the one who made the promises is reliable. Heb.10:23

  • Dave

    Thank you for your time Criss.

    The difference between you and me is.

    You accept one humans many errors. And I accept many humans errors.

    Moral of it all.

    Both could be wrong
    Or one is right with one wrong.

    So I will share one last bondage point.
    Where ctr had it set up for elders and not elders heard cases about wrong doing.

    Indeed, even if the transgressors refuse to hear ( obey) the decision of the entire Church, no punishment is to be inflicted or even attempted. What then? Merely the Church is to withdraw from him its fellowship and any and all signs or manifestations of brotherhood. Thenceforth the offender is to be treated as a heathen man and a publican.
