Like i said a moot point.Youve decided long ago what road ur on.Broad and spacious and leads to destruction.

BTW 144000 arent the only ones saved.Jesus spoke of other sheep.The righteous will inherit the earth.Gods original purpose.

You forget Mary didnt recognize Jesus either.So <duh>he must have used another fleshly body as he did with Thomas cos Thomas wanted proof that he had wounds.

Ecclesiastes 9:5 King James Version (KJV)
5 For the living know that they shall die: but the dead know not any thing, neither have they any more a reward; for the memory of them is forgotten.

Rom 6:7 New International Version
because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.

I guess you dont know what acquitted meant.

Jesus spoke symbolic at times.Did he really mean a camel can go thru the eye of a needle?Its the same as hell.Its meant as everlasting destruction that backs up Eccl 9:5.

Very weak meaning you gave of Jesus.

Jesus Christ
Definition: The only-begotten Son of God, the only Son produced by Jehovah alone. This Son is the firstborn of all creation. By means of him all other things in heaven and on earth were created. He is the second-greatest personage in the universe. It is this Son whom Jehovah sent to the earth to give his life as a ransom for mankind, thus opening the way to eternal life for those of Adam’s offspring who would exercise faith. This same Son, restored to heavenly glory, now rules as King, with authority to destroy all the wicked and to carry out his Father’s original purpose for the earth. The Hebrew form of the name Jesus means “Jehovah Is Salvation”; Christ is the equivalent of the Hebrew Ma·shiʹach (Messiah), meaning “Anointed One.”

You speak of other sects by their numbers.

Jesus said you will recognize them by their fruits and the parable with rotten and good trees.Also love among themselves.

As i told u go see for yourself on 4/19 if u could loosen some of that concrete in ur head.....actually i mean ur heart.

When the greatest tribulation comes soon many will become faint out of fear.Loyal ones of God will lift their heads knowing their deliverance is near.

I'll trust my eternal salvation to the words of Jesus Christ, not Charles Taze Russell &  J. F. Rutherford, thank you kindly.

But the 144,000 are the only ones who get to go to heaven in this convoluted mess of a theology.


Mary didn't recognize Him at first for a number normal reasons. She had been facing the tomb when Jesus came behind her. She was crying and couldn't see Him clearly against the sunrise. Once Jesus actually summons her complete attention, He didn't have to explain "No Mary, it's actually me- Jesus!" She turned and focused on Him, recognizing Him instantly. Doesn't that make more sense than a sci-fi tale of His body 'vanishing' only for Him to go back to a wardrobe of 'body suits' that He can put on anytime He wants? Wake up. The JW position on the Resurrection makes no sense.

The dead don't know what is going on among the living. Solomon was speaking of how Great Men's lives mean nothing on earth after their time has past. They got adulation in life, not necessarily in death. (it could be punishment)


Yep, Paul is right. Can't sin anymore when you're dead. Is this the best you can do?

Jesus speaking symbolic is found in things like I posted "If your hand sins, cut it off.." But when He makes a point several dozen times that there will be punishment in Hell, I think that's something worth paying attention to-
Matt:13 47-51
 “Again, the Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by a fisherman—he casts a net into the water and gathers in fish of every kind, valuable and worthless. When the net is full, he drags it up onto the beach and sits down and sorts out the edible ones into crates and throws the others away. 49 That is the way it will be at the end of the world—the angels will come and separate the wicked people from the godly, 50 casting the wicked into the fire; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 51 Do you understand?”

“Yes,” they said, “we do.”



The good news is- you don't need to be afraid of endless hellfire, hitch. Believe in the God of the bible. Ask Jesus to forgive you of your sins and accept Him as your Lord & Savior. It's as simple as that.

Again, Sola Scriptura. Your JW interpretations are not worth the paper they are printed on. As I already said, Christ is not a created being. He has been proven to be co- equal & Co- Eternal with the Father. Adding the term 'other' is a typical JW trap, when it's not there in the unaltered scriptures.

You still haven't addressed why the term Jehovah Witness is not in the bible, yet you can accept it's use. Don't worry, I'll wait 10,000 years for you to research all the ever changing theology the Watchtower has recorded.

Again, you haven't made one lick of sense on this question. Michael is the Archangel of God's army. Jesus is GOD OF ALL. That's like saying "The President sent troops to war today." Well, yeah, he's in charge, but the General is the one leading the troops into battle. Blind Guides!


My middle name is also Michael! :)  Naw, I think we'll keep it.

Eternity is only a heartbeat away for all of us.

Luke 11: 35-36

So watch out that the sunshine isn’t blotted out. If you are filled with light within, with no dark corners, then your face will be radiant too, as though a floodlight is beamed upon you.”

Since you can't answer my other question, I'll ask another-

If Christians are persecuted for the sake of Jehovah's name, why did Christ tell the first Christians that they would be persecuted for the sake of his (Jesus') name instead of Jehovah's?

Matt 24:9
"Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake"

Doesn't this prove Jesus equal with Jehovah and that we are to be called by His Holy Son's name?
