Know Those That Knock On Your Door

It is very important to know those who knock on your door.  During a 2015 Jehovah’s Witness broadcast, a streamed TV show that promotes Witness propaganda, Anthony Morris III, a member of the Governing Body  of Jehovah’s Witnesses and a supposed anointed Christian who will be among the 144,000 people who will be the only individuals resurrected into heaven, had this to say about higher education.  “Has the Governing Body changed its position regarding the pursuit of higher secular education?  No.  We feel that all of the cautions that we have addressed in the past are still valid.  However, our goal now is the focus on and intensify our promotion of the pursuit of divine education.  If parents and young ones are motivated to avidly pursue divine education, the quest for higher secular education becomes less and less of an issue.  The cost of obtaining university training is not our primary concern.  It is the potential for spiritual harm that has moved us to provide the cautions we have shared in the past.  All too often, our young people have met with spiritual disaster, especially after leaving home and living on a university campus.  So, parents and children?  You need to have a goal and you need to have a plan.  If you are missing either one, Satan will provide it for you.  Young people.  Ask yourself.  Why am I considering additional education?  Is it because I am pursuing a specific skill or trade to support my service to Jehovah or have I been pressured by the system into believing that higher education will somehow make me a more respected person or lead me to a better life?  If we are in continued association with those who do not believe the same, it can erode our thinking and convictions.  Some have felt that spending time with non-believers in a university setting is no different than working secularly with those who do not share our beliefs.  It is one thing to work on a job with others and quite another matter to immerse oneself in an institution of learning!  We are to be careful that this system does not mold or shape our thinking.  Higher education can easily influence thinking and attitudes.  When we make a decision, we must realistically also accept the consequences.  If we should be that careful about our association inside the congregation, the application is even more appropriate when it comes to institutions of secular learning!  I have long said, the better the university the greater the danger.  The most intelligent and eloquent professors will be trying to reshape the thinking of your child.  One mom I recalled, asked me to try and help her son who was attending a prestigious named university in Rhode Island.  After visiting him, I later had to inform her that her son now believed in evolution.  She refused to believe it until he finally told her himself.  How sad.  Ultimately the parents must decide how much education a child needs to succeed in life.  But does that mean that any decision that a parent makes in a child’s education is fine with Jehovah?  Here Jehovah guarantees that one day, every person on earth will be a true worshiper of him.  Will you be there?  Will your son or daughter be among those alive at that time?  Do your personal decisions matter?  Yes.  So then, each of us will render an account for himself to God.  Yes, we all will have to answer to Jehovah for the decisions we make today.  May we all decide to play it safe before our God?  Think of all of the opportunities there are now to enjoy divine education; congregation meetings, family worship, assemblies and conventions, the JW.org website and the station you are watching right now.   In addition to providing divine education, what secular skills will we be promoting?  Skills that will be useful to Gods organization now and after Armageddon.  For example, we need construction skills around the world right now!  And think about this.  We will not need doctors and lawyers after Armageddon, but we will need carpenters and plumbers and similar construction trades!  It requires faith to decline higher education and have the confidence that our material needs will be cared for by training in other fields of employment.”

God and Free Will Cannot Coexist

If the Judeo-Christian Islamic God is omniscient, then there can be no free will.  If he knows exactly how the future will play out, free will cannot exist.  If God knows the next sentence you will utter, then everything is predestined.  If this is the case, then how can we be mad with anyone when they do something that disappoints us?  It was God’s will that the incident occurred.  Free will and godly omniscience are incompatible. 

The Atheist’s Moral Compass

“If you don’t believe in the Christian God, there’s nothing to inhibit you from committing a crime.  You can be a moral monster!  Nothing stops you from committing heinous acts.”  I hate it every time I hear this!  Atheist are still subjected to the same social and psychological guidelines that hedge any society.  We are still social animals and this trait is the result of evolution, not our choice.  Why is it that Christians feel they have the high ground when it comes to morality?  Have they READ the Bible?  What say you?

The Problem With Christians

This is the problem with Christians. They play games with their false logical reasoning and move the goalposts in an argument when the Atheist is close to scoring a point.  A perfect example is when you try to disprove the Christian God and they state, “are you saying that A god does or cannot not exist?”  They add the indefinite article so that you must disprove every god in order to disprove THEIR God.  This is truly a farce and it needs to be addressed by the Atheists community.

The Great Flood & The Animals

For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth. – Genesis 7:4.

If God initiated the flood because man was wicked, why did he have to kill off all the animals, creatures that did not sin?  What did the animals do to deserve this punishment, the extinguishing of their lives?  Why God?

Jesus and Epilepsy

When Jesus (God), the originator of the cosmos and creator of all life, specifically human beings, was confronted with an epileptic individual in Mark 9, did he cure his neurological illness by touching his head and somehow halting the incessant random impulses in the brain with his magical powers?  No.  He exorcized the demon that was controlling this individual’s body.  Epilepsy is the misfiring of neurons that unconsciously promotes sudden and awkward movements entirely out of the control of the afflicted individual.  Demonic exorcism is not a valid form of treatment.  If this is the God who created us in whole, why was he ill prepared to administer the proper care?  Doctors today can explain in great detail what exactly happens during a seizure.  Why is it that human beings (created by God) are better equipped to care for this malady?  If Jesus was the creator of all humanity, why did he provide false information to be inscribed in his inspired word?
