In response to Rolf Furuli PH.D

Someone sent me a PDF of your new book the other day— My Beloved Religion and the Governing Body. I am taking this opportunity to respond to one portion of it regarding the appointed times of the nations. Since you are basically expanding upon the Watchtower’s long-held explanation of the so-called Gentile times it is also a response to the Watchtower and Jehovah’s Witnesses in general. [...]

The Watchtower’s spokesmen and their lies

I suspended the Daily Commentary feature a year and a half ago, which was my commentary based upon the Watchtower’s Daily Text. But today’s Daily Text is just too much. Here it is Spreading lies has become commonplace in today’s society. As stated in the article “Why We Lie” by Y. Bhattacharjee, “lying has come to be recognized as a deeply ingrained human trait.” People often resort [...]

What about the little flock and the other sheep?

Someone posted a comment on your website the other day stating that the little flock was Jewish Christians and the other sheep is gentile believers. You didn’t respond to the comment, but would you explain why that is not true? I am always happy to answer questions. First, it is recommended that we consider the context of any verse in question. By doing so we [...]

The Coming Storm

Do you think now Satan has been hurled down and confined to the earth or may be coming this fall? I do not think Satan and his angels have already been hurled down from heaven— certainly not in 1914, nor at any time since then. As for this coming autumn, Jesus said: “Concerning that day and hour nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens [...]

King of the North from the time of Christ

How did we arrive at this point in history? What past events have brought the world to the present state at this moment in time? God has allowed for the temporary provision of human governments in various forms even though these have been dominated by greedy, short-sighted, and oftentimes tyrannical men. The alternative is tribalism and anarchy and a much lower population. Although allowing for the [...]

Covid 19 and the Machinations of Satan

Do you see CV19 as a machination of Satan to slow the preaching work, or, as Jehovah causing what the Watchtower deserves? The lockdown has impacted Jehovah’s Witnesses, that is for sure. A couple of months ago who would have imagined that the Watchtower would shutter every kingdom hall, cancel assemblies and the summer conventions and cease the public ministry? But unless something unexpected happens in [...]

Some easy questions for Jehovah’s Witnesses

This article is a response to questions posed on this website  1. If you found the Watchtower contradicted the Bible which would you believe? This is a really just a preparatory question which should have an obvious answer, but it is designed to introduce the idea that there may be a disparity between the Watchtower and the Bible. Whatever errors are promulgated by the Watchtower— and [...]

Why does God allow his name to be hidden?

At John 17:26 Jesus said: "I have made your name known to them.” And at Matthew 6:9-10 Jesus says to pray for God's name to be sanctified and John 12:28 Jesus says "God glorify your name.” Despite the overwhelming scripture that illustrates the Almighty has His own unique name... what reason do you think the Tetragrammaton wasn't riddled throughout the new testament and used by the [...]

Life after death?

Virtually every religion claims that something survives the death of the body. The Scriptures do not teach that. Instead, a resurrection from the dead is the hope held out in the Scriptures-- waking up from non-existence. Unfortunately, this program did not air this week on shortwave. I am not sure what happened.

He learned obedience from the things he suffered

God can be anything or anyone he chooses. Although, apparently, Almighty God has a few limitations. Foremost, it is impossible for God to lie. Think of that. God cannot act unjustly. He simply cannot be untrue or hypocritical. By nature, God is loving and kind. So are people, for the most part. At least we are inclined that way. That is because in the beginning God [...]
