Are You a Confirmed Drunkard?

Here’s a quick “Twist in Translation” I found while studying the faithful and discreet slave (please see the study “Who is the Faithful and Discreet Slave? (A context adventure) for a clear study on the slave). It pretty much explains itself. See the passage below and meet me on the other side.  My purpose here is…

Number Crunch

I am aware that since Jehovah’s Witnesses believe there is only room for 144,000 members in the anointed class and therefore expect those claiming to be one of this number to be dwindling as the elderly ones reach the end of their lives.  I was curious  how much the numbers of memorial partakers has been…

It’s Subliminal

Here’s a fun fact: In the 1950 NWT, John the Baptist was said to be a pioneer.  I kid you not! – 1950 NWT, Luke 1:76 – “But as for you, young child, you will be called a prophet of the Most High, for you will PIONEER before Jehovah, to make his ways ready.” Of…

As he was being burned at the stake for the name of Christ…He said to his tormentor….”You threaten with fire that burns for an hour and then is extinguished, for you are ignorant of the…

Was the blood God’s??

Every other translation of acts 20:28 indicates that the church (or congregation) is purchased by God with his own blood! Notice in the kingdom interlinear (son) is added in parenthesis.  Then notice the other three verses with the same sort of phrase and how it is structured in the Greek. If you let this compute,…

Building the House 

Jehovah’s Witnesses are known for their worldwide preaching work.  In fact, this is something that assure JWs of the truth of their organization….since nobody else is doing what they do.  While I commend JWs for their dedication to Jehovah, I would challenge them to take a look at the ministries of “regular Christians” and recognize that…
