    Good Lord! People who cut and copy can report less time in the ministry than people who type it all out.
    I usually type it out, even though I use just two fingers. I don't know why.

    OK! That is me off topic.

    From the rubbish you post I am sure that you never were a JW. You obviously think you were in some deluded fashion....but as Jesus said, the 'unsuitable fish' do not stay in 'the net'. (Matthew 13:47-50) They are discarded because they do not measure up to God's standards.

    If you want to be your own 'faithful slave' then that is up to you. But I'd think twice about what I said if I were you.....'gnashing your teeth' as you do here on a regular basis, could be seen as an activity that Gamaliel warned about when the Jews were opposing Jesus' apostles.

    "So under the present circumstances, I say to you, do not meddle with these men, but let them alone. For if this scheme or this work is from men, it will be overthrown; 39 but if it is from God, you will not be able to overthrow them. Otherwise, you may even be found fighters against God himself." (Acts 4:38-39)

    You can trust God to take care of his own. He will take care of those who oppose his people as well.

    I know that! Do you really think that I am not telling the truth that I was a baptized and obedient Jehovah's Witness for twenty years?

    I think you mean that I was never a GOOD Jehovah's Witness. You know, one who clings to every word of the governing body......................................................................................................and believes in them..............................................................even though they most likely will change their minds sometimes.

    I am hearing that it is RUBBISH to ask for the Bible proof that Jehovah will not raise the faithful people of Old to Heaven.

    We know that JWs believe that Jehovah through Jesus Christ will raise them to Earth.

    We know the governing body of Jehovah's Witnesses has said that God will not raise them to Heaven.

    We are asking for the reason for such.

    And asking is called "rubbish" by a Jehovah's Witness.

    Oh! Guess what? I think she isn't. I would bet (a little) on it!

    I would bet a little money that SHE is not a real Jehovah's Witness.

    OK, so, to refute the opinion that John the Baptist of which it is written that he is above all other humans, won't be going to heaven on account of the governing body of Jehovah's Witnesses is called RUBBISH. Just so you know.

    It's cute that Jehovah's Witnesses AND their opposers believe that what I dish out is rubbish.

    You referred to what JW's teach. I couldn't care less what they teach, it doesn't matter.

    Please stop listening to people who think they know and get your Bible out and see for yourself. I would especially not recommend reading the Watchtower. Those people are not Apostles while Apostles wrote the New Testament.

    Pcarl answered your question based on what the Bible says. Jesus said that God is not the God of the dead but of the living. Also, read Hebrews 11, which explains that those who lived before Christ were saved by faith just as we are. They believed the promise of the coming Messiah so they actually believed that Jesus would come. In that way they believed in Jesus.

    Maybe you do not know what the forums are about. That is OK by me.

    There are people they are recruiting to believe in their lies and maybe, just maybe there is one little insignificant person who might read me and then refuse them. OK? Jude 1:23

    I was just answering your question.

    Satan has deceived many and will deceive many more. Just insure you know the scriptures so he can't deceive you.

    Nobody can know scripture perfectly.

    But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Mark 13:32

    Acually, you didn't. You linked me to something, but it was nothing.

    It doesn't matter? Can you prove that what eight million people believe in doesn't matter?

    Eight million does not account for all those who believe in them who are now dead, who believe in them but do not get counted and all those who support them in their own ways.

    Ok. You do understand that the ancients were saved by faith just as we are, right?
