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…

Follow me: Daniel 10 documents a vision of A man clothed in linen, a belt of gold, eyes like fire, wearing a linen garment, having feet like copper,…

Flag Worship

This is a screenshot from a fb post a Jw friend posted recently. Let’s talk about flag worship.

What is worship, anyway?…
