Food for Thinking Jehovah's Witnesses
“‘But you are seeking great things for yourself. Stop seeking such things. For I am about to bring a calamity on all flesh,’ declares Jehovah, ‘and wherever you may go, I will grant you your life as a spoil.’”

The Relentless Push for War
By courtesy of WikiImages on Pixabay
The stupidity of humanity is astonishing. Since the horror of the nuclear age was unleashed 70 years ago with the obliteration of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, America has taken the lead in producing thousands of warheads many times more powerful than the ones that were detonated over Japan in 1945.

The specter of nuclear war loomed large during the Cold War, but in the early 1990’s relations between the USSR and the West began to thaw. First the Berlin Wall was torn down. Then the mighty Soviet Union simply dissolved. There was supposed to be a new world order and a peace dividend, but instead the US has launched an endless war since the Saudi-engineered attack on 9-11-01. Now the US and NATO are back on a full war footing – not against the phantom enemy of Islamic terrorism, but against the second largest nuclear power on earth – Russia. What happened? Well, besides all the geo-political machinations, humans have failed to listen to their Creator. They have turned a deaf ear to the gospel of Christ. They have completely dismissed the fundamental truth revealed through Jesus and his apostles that Satan and his demons are the unseen rulers of this world. Those wicked spirits exert tremendous influence over those whom Jehovah does not take under his wing. So, while humans may dismiss the possibility that there could be a nuclear war, simply because to engage in such a war would be insane, they fail to consider that the wicked angels are mad. The 16th chapter of Revelation describes the war of the great day of God the Almighty at the place called Armageddon. But what precipitates that war between God and the nations? Revelation states: “They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and they perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty.” So, it is the demons who are luring the rulers of this world into a suicidal conflict, one which God will cut short, but which will ultimately segue into a war with God Almighty. But ask one of Jehovah’s Witnesses if the world is on the brink of world war and you will either get a blank stare or they will assure you that such a thing will never happen. Such is the power of the “deluding influence,” which Jehovah allows to operate upon them.

Let us examine our beliefs:

the existence of God

If a Christian, and especially a Jehovah's Witness, is asked to provide proof of the existence of God, it is very likely that he will quote verse four of the third chapter of the letter to the Hebrews, "every house is constructed by someone, but the one who constructed all things is God".

The reasoning may be right, nothing came from nothing but everything on earth is due to the will of a designer, it is still good to note that Paul was not trying to argue about the existence of a Creator. He spoke to his Hebrew Christian companions who certainly did not question the fact that the universe was ruled by a powerful being who is behind everything. Moreover, in antiquity the problem was certainly not the non-belief in God but rather the opposite: people tended to believe in a multitude of gods. Furthermore, Paul, on one occasion, noticed that an altar dedicated to an unknown god had been made, certainly for fear of forgetting to revere a deity.

Parables for Our Days (Part 1)
What do the parables of Jesus have to say to us? Are they related to our days? First, we must identify and understand which of them have a prophetic application. For example, the parable of the prodigal son contains an excellent teaching for us, but is not prophetic, it announces no event! How then to distinguish the types of parabolas? As usual, it is very simple: we will stick to what Jesus Christ Himself said, without adding or taking away. We will limit the interpretations to the only elements that can be derived directly from narratives or other particular and relevant texts. For the rest, we will gladly content ourselves with the Lord's reply: "It does not belong to you to know the times or seasons that the Father has placed in his own jurisdiction" – Acts 1:7
