SUGGESTED RESOURCES RELATED TO JEREMIAH Supplement you reading with the following conservative sources use a literal approach in interpretation of the Scriptures.
Compare 1 Timothy 2: They believe the Watchtower contains Gods truth, directed by Holy Spirit. Without it one cannot understand the Bible. They claim to be Christian but the vast majority reject Christ Blood and flesh and they do this in a ritualistic fashion every memorial of Christ death by passing the bread and wine among themselves and not eating it.
Even the speaker must touch the plate or the cup and reject it for all to see. They use the name Jehovah over Yahweh but will agree Yahweh is more accurate. Compare Jude 22 7. They claim they were approved and chosen by Christ Jesus in to do Gods will. However their teachings at the time and mistakes since then prove this could not be true. They let their loved ones die imposing their doctrinal ban on blood transfusions based on the law covenant.
However people broke the law covenant when lives were at stake. Such as saving a life of a sheep or human on the sabbath.
Jehovah’s Witness Beliefs, Rules, Facts, History and Bible
Notes and References The first difficulty in writing about this subject is that the term ‘Jew’ has been used during the last years with two rather different meanings. To understand this, let us imagine ourselves in the year Then the universally accepted meaning of the term ‘Jew’ basically coincided with what the Jews themselves understood as constituting their own identity.
This identity was primarily religious, but the precepts of religion governed the details of daily behavior in all aspects of life, both social and private, among the Jews themselves as well as in their relation to non-Jews. It was then literally true that a Jew could not even drink a glass of water in the home of a non-Jew.
The objective is to use the law to convict the conscience, as with any lost person. Nevertheless, most atheists are arrogant, with intellectual barriers that will keep them from hearing you out.

I was baptized at the tender age of ten and left the organization at eighteen when I moved from Pennsylvania to Colorado. So, shunning has impacted not only my life, but the next generation in my family as well. I still have the original shunning letter from my mother.
Top Ten Things Wrong with Jehovah’s Witnesses. 1. Christ Jesus is not their mediator but the governing body/organization is. (Compare 1 Timothy ).
Index to Bible Notes How to Witness to an Atheist The objective is to use the law to convict the conscience, as with any lost person. Nevertheless, most atheists are arrogant, with intellectual barriers that will keep them from hearing you out. By the way, there are no practical differences among atheists, agnostics, and deists. The atheist believes that there is no God. The deist believes that there was a creator God who set the universe into motion and then took a permanent vacation.
In all 3 cases, these individuals make themselves 1 in the universe, accountable to no personal God. I have learned to enjoy talking to the polite atheist more than talking to the religious lost. If a thoughtful atheist comes to believe in God as revealed in the Bible, he is very likely to act on that knowledge and be born again — like I was. The religious lost tend to have scattered, but incoherent knowledge about Christianity, are difficult to communicate with, and are not so likely to act on truth, even when it kicks them in the nose.
In fact, if someone brushes you off with an attitude, you might just guess at his atheism and say. Oh, an atheist, huh? If he is hanging around by this point, you may well be able to have a full-length conversation.

He was only 18 years old when he began a Bible study that focused on the second coming of Jesus, as well as the chronology of the Bible. As a result of his study, which took place around , he published numerous books. During that decade, he also presented several formal lectures. Russell served as the president until he died in

Each local “class” or ecclesia came to recognize him as “Pastor,” although geography and Russell’s writing and publishing activities prevented more than an occasional pastoral visit in person. Inevitably, Russell’s increasingly divergent teachings forced his followers to separate from other church bodies and to create a denomination of their own.
Beginning, as he did, in a small branch of Adventism that went to the extreme of setting specific dates for the return of Christ and the Rapture, Russell went farther out on a limb in by openly rejecting the doctrine of the Trinity. His earlier mentor Nelson H. The writings of Barbour and Paton that Russell had helped publish or distribute were Trinitarian in their theology. And the Watch Tower itself was at first vague and noncommittal on the subject.
It was only after Paton broke with him in , and ceased to be listed on the masthead, that Russell began writing against the doctrine of the Trinity. By the time of his death , Charles Taze Russell had traveled more than a million miles and preached more than 30, sermons. He had authored works totaling some 50, printed pages, and nearly 20, , copies of his books and booklets had been sold. Followers had been taught that Russell himself was the “faithful and wise servant” of Matthew But he lived to see the failure of various dates he had predicted for the Rapture, and finally died on October 31, , more than two years after the world was supposed to have ended, according to his calculations, in early October, His disciples, however, saw the World War then raging as reason to believe “the end” was still imminent.

However, much has happened since it went up, including the Blogger outage. Scroll down for a report on that. More new posts will be added below this one. The essay below is the conclusion of the ninth part in a series by Takuan Seiyo.
Israel Shahak was a resident of the Warsaw Ghetto and a survivor of Bergen-Belsen. He arrived in Palestine in and lived there until his death in He was an outspoken critic of the state of Israel and a human rights activist.
Someone I used to be with is Catholic and recently discovered that he wants to pursue his faith more seriously. This is how you have an interfaith relationship. Respect each other, without trying to change each other. In order to have that strong connection we crave, we look for someone who is like-minded. And yes, I have clients who value religion above all, and demand that a partner feel the same.
These are all arbitrary deal-breakers, which often serve to keep these people alone for a really long time. People want what they want. I used an example of a Jewish woman who wanted to marry Jewish which is normal , but also wanted to insist that her man be an animal activist as well. This says nothing about whether her man is also kind, attractive, successful, emotionally available or interested in her.
And yet we wonder why finding someone is so difficult. Religion absolutely matters — if you make it matter. Loving dogs absolutely matters — if you make it matter. And height and weight and age absolutely matter — if you make them matter.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE FOR COUNSELORS OF JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES? “I’m a licensed counselor and my client is one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. What advice would you give to a therapist/counselor working with current or former members of Jehovah Witnesses?”.
Friday, 6 April Does ‘Hovah’ really mean ‘a ruin, disaster’? Does ‘Hovah’ mean ‘a ruin, disaster’ in Strong’s Concordance? I was asked, Why do you use the name ‘Jehovah’ when ‘hovah’ in the Strong’s Concordance means ‘a ruin, disaster’. The two words only sound similar to someone blissfully ignorant of Hebrew grammar. My Laotian friend provides another example from Hebrew of how disastrous Hovah-logic can be. You might break down the word PILegesh into two words: This question almost invariably comes from people who either don’t know Hebrew or know just enough to be dangerous to themselves.
I’m not putting these people down. I applaud them for trying to understand Hebrew the best they can with the limited tools available to them. This is just me venting my frustration at having to explain basic Hebrew grammatical concepts. The question starts off with the observation that the Hebrew word hovah means “disaster, calamity”.
