Q.E.D. - the Song RESULTS | Reviewer: theresa1 | 3/5/09
As can be seen then, the RESULTS of DENYING/ IGNORING that God HAS a body of TRUTH (his Scriptures) that people belong finding and OBEYING IS THE SAME AS WHAT HAS BEEN DESTROYING OUR WORLD and HUMAN SOCIETY ON IT: UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
SLANDER is one of the greatest spiritual crimes against God and humans that there is - and yet, the above U2-fans/proteges have engaged in that serious CRIME of INJUSTICE SO FREELY, as if with very dead/impaired consciences.
What has impaired their consciences? Messages such as in this song - that there's no spiritual "truth", and so no ACCOUNTABILITY to the Maker of man and earth?
It would seem so, especially as it is the chosen portal of those persons fighting God.
One poster said that speech of scriptural truth and warnings I posted was making him, in effect, more against "Christianity."
If that person wishes, he/she can immediately go to nearly any of the world's countless churches of FALSE (Scripture-ignoring-and-disobeying "Christianity") - or many adherents of of them - and those AQUIESCING (sell-out) FALSE-to-God religionists will basically tell them "anything they want to hear." They will be a yes-man to them, CODDLE-ERS of them.
It is SO MUCH DIFFERENT with true, scriptural spirituality: Jehovah/Yahweh HAS REQUIREMENTS - disciplining commands and principles, and his own scriptural TERMS OF PURE WORSHIP.
When taken in and practiced, those scriptural standards, that Divine education CHANGES people's HEARTS AND MINDS to be RIGHTEOUS. That produces other good qualities in people too: Love, peace, honesty, compassion, unselfishness, gratitude to one's Maker, etc.
That is why spiritual crimes such as blasphemy and SLANDER are all that more appalling to those who have learned God's truth and standards.
Soon, only those who have CHOSEN to SEE truth God has PROVIDED - and to follow it - will survive his own upcoming Armageddon battle.
That is because, as God has taught, it is his will to carry out his original purpose for the earth and mankind: To have be a paradise filled with happy, thriving, godly people.
AS with the Flood of Noah's Day, he will once again clear the earth of rebels against him and his righteousness.
Then, he will extend HIS HEAVEN-BASED **** KINGDOM **** ("Kingdom come") down from heaven, over the whole earth. With Jesus as God's appointed King of that Kingdom (then earth's ONLY Rulership), blessings and direction will flow down from heaven to God-obedient people here, "the meek ones of the earth." (See Psalm 37:10,11,29)
Take careful note though: Only those who have learned righteousness will get to live here in that new world system/ Kingdom of God; for in that "new earth", "righteousness is to dwell." (2Peter 3:13)
(So, there will be no slanderers allowed. See Acts 3:19 - hurry up to "repent and turn around", so as to "be there" rather than no where.)
Love this song | Reviewer: Randy | 3/3/09
I love this song so much. Its very beautiful. Everytime I hear it I have to take a step back and listen to it. I really connected to this song until I finly found direction in my life. Not religon. I think U2 is a awsome group that are extreamly talanted.
As far as Physco theresa1, Your free to say and do as you like. everyone is. But coming from some one with a open mind about things, Do you really think these crazy rants and attacks on here are really going to suddonly change there views on thigs? Idk, jsut a personal view point but after reading your post, i'm even more turnd off to the entire Christan point of view than before I had the horrific mind numming opertunit to read your seriously wacked view on things. After reading your post i can truly say, U are nuts! If you are what christanity is about I can confidently say, I am not and nor will I ver be one, thank goodness!
I think you are all insane! | Reviewer: rich | 2/24/09
I just came on here for some lyrics...
You people are all nuts, crazy and insane.
I hope you all are on medication and seek
professional psychotic therapy on a weekly
or daily basis. Get a life! Its a song: if you don't
like it write your own. It works for me!
God REFUSES to Grant Requests for ... | Reviewer: theresa1 | 2/12/09
In seven years time, I have seen much of this too, coming from FALSE "Christian" U2 fans: DECEPTIVE EMOTIONAL PLOYS used to try to cover over - as well as "smoothly" deliver - persecutive attacks of (prophesied) evil, SLANDEROUS SPEECH AGAINST God's words and against TRUE CHRISTIANS WHO ACTUALLY LOYALLY AND OBEDIENTLY * DO * WHAT JESUS COMMANDED AND SAID WAS MOST IMPORTANT FOR HIS * TRUE * DISCIPLES TO DO, WHICH IS TO PREACH AND TEACH THIS WORLD JEHOVAH'S LIFE-SAVING (and bettering) SCRIPTURAL MESSAGES, INCLUDING THE WARNING ONES. (Ezekiel 3:17-21)
In fulfillment of Bible prophecy for this time of the end, TRUE Christians - of which I am one - DO EXACTLY THAT, in various ways, in various situations, all over the world. (Matthew 24:14; 28:19,20)
But, also, in fulfillment of Bible prophecy, FALSE "Christians" FAIL to preach and teach Jehovah/Yahweh's scriptural truth.
First of all, MOST DO NOT EVEN BOTHER LEARNING THE WHOLE OF SCRIPTURAL TRUTH. That such persons ### POSSESS NO SCRIPTURAL UNDERSTANDING ### (even though they CLAIM to) QUICKLY BECOMES EVIDENT IN THEIR SPEECH, as their God-fighting words DENY and conflict with one basic scriptural truth after another, after another.
No - as is frequently demonstrated, the SPECIALTY of such FALSE "Christians" IS, INSTEAD, THE PHILOSOPHIES of MEN: Man-made (anti-scriptural, FALSE religious) doctrines, creeds and traditions that attempt to trample upon the word of God and make it invalid (see Matthew 15:6-9); (anti-scriptural) DESIRE-PLEASING TREND-PHILOSOPHIES TAUGHT BY POPULAR (or not), IDOLIZED PERSONS; or THEIR OWN SELF-DESIRE-FIRST-SERVING (SELF as gOD) MUSINGS. (2Timothy 4:3,4)
Yet, ultimately, everything such persons teach that is AGAINST GOD'S OWN PURPOSELY PROVIDED AND DELIVERED SCRIPTURAL TRUTH serves Satan as god, and CHAMPIONS his deathful lies and slander against both God and Christ.
So, persons who CLAIM to worship God and be "followers" of his Son ("Christians"), but who FIGHT AGAINST, rip-down, and disbarge speech of God's scriptural truth and THOSE TELLING IT -again, as Christ commanded and prophesied that those TRUE to him WOULD DO - indeed, by scriptural description show themselves to be ENEMIES of the God of the Bible and ENEMIES of his Son; serving and obeying Satan the Devil and his interests instead. They are among the prophesied ANTICHRISTS, despite calling themselves "Christians."
The type of response seen above is VERY TYPICAL among FALSE "Christian" (and other) U2 fans WHO HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY BRAINWASHED TO OR REINFORCED TO THE BRAINWASHING OF THE CORE PHILOSOPHY TAUGHT BY THIS SONG (especially as it was utilized during the last tour.)
See how it has even motivated a professed "Christain" TO DENY THAT GOD AND JESUS CHRIST EVEN HAVE SCRIPTURAL TRUTH THAT GOD PURPOSELY INTENDED HUMANS TO NOT ONLY LEARN, BUT LIVE BY/ OBEY, AND TEACH TO OTHERS - NOW (NOT "LATER)!!!!!!!!!!!
This is what exactly what I meant when I have referred to the "recent" mass-media-ed teachings of the gods-to-many persons of Bono and U2 (AND THEIR FERVENT FALSE RELIGIOUS [especially FALSE “Christian”] FANS) as being RESPONSIBLE FOR SPREADING/ re-infecting persons with SPIRITUAL DEATH DISEASE.
Again, just HOW MANY led/reinforced
to (anti-scriptural) FALSE religion/ FALSE spiritual philosophy, antichristism, blasphemy, and fighting against God FANS/IDOLATERS of U2 will LOSE THEIR ENTIRE ETERNAL FUTURES, STARTING SOON, when the Only True God, the Creator, the Judge of the Earth, the Universal Sovereign, the Writer of Scriptural Instruction for Pure Worship and Survival of the End of this Satanic World System Jehovah/Yahweh and his Son Jesus Christ come forth to forever ELIMINATE from this earth (and any sort of existence forevermore) of all persons found "LIKING AND CARRYING ON A LIE"??????? (See Revelation 22:15.)
Billions? Millions? Thousands? Hundreds?
(I personally eye-witnessed/ear-witnessed half-a-million "fans" (and that was just a small fraction of them) enthusiastically sing-chant-responding back to Bono, in agreement, that, like him, they have NOT "found what [they're] looking for" - despite that God, Jesus Christ, myriads of angels, "holy ones"/Christ's brothers, Jehovah's scripturally described human messengers, and Jehovah [Yahweh's] holy spirit/ active force have been putting out/ delivering God's wholly-intended blessing and warning messages of vital scriptural spiritual truth "in all the inhabited earth, for a witness to all the nations", increasingly, as prophesied, during this final, critical part of the last (pre-Armageddon) days. (Matthew 24:14)
That work will soon come to completion - at God's call.
"...then THE END WILL COME." (That is the last part of the Matthew 24:14 prophecy.)
At that time, Armageddon, when Jesus comes as God's Chief Executioner, THERE WILL basically BE NO MORE "EXCUSES" LEFT/ACCEPTED by God or Christ that persons "STILL HAVEN'T FOUND WHAT [they're] LOOKING FOR." God's scriptural truth will already have BEEN MADE AVAILABLE to EVERYONE ALIVE.
The TRUTH will be that, basically, ALL PERSONS WILL HAVE MADE THEIR CHOICE - to either LISTEN TO, LEARN, and OBEY GOD'S GLOBALLY AVAILABLE SCRIPTURAL TRUTH ~~~~ OR ~~~~ to serve "other" gods (self, Satan, other humans, etc.) , “obeying” them/those things INSTEAD.
WARNING WILL HAVE BEEN JUSTLY and FAIRLY GIVEN OUT.
THAT TIME OF WARNING IS NOW - MORE THAN EVER.
Again, most persons - FALSE "Christian" and "other" - are in a state of spiritual stupor/drunkiness/inebriation from eating and drinking up spiritual LIE substances from demons. In that state, it is true, and it can be seen, that (with the exception of those knowing and firmly holding onto God-provided scriptural TRUTH) "the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one." (1John 5:19)
That is why this world is in its largely senseless, corrupt, dying state.
And that is why, AS THE SCRIPTURES TEACH, God will soon be bringing the entire unjust world system that currently (harmfully) dominates over human society (with Satan as its actual ruler/god) TO AN END. First, God will destroy all FALSE religions. (Revelation 17 and 18) Then, he will get rid of every other last vestige of Satan's works, and supporters of them. (Ezekiel 38 and 39; Daniel 2:44; Revelation 19, etc.)
The "way out" for individuals is NOT to continue going recklessly (spiritually drunkenly) headlong into the spiritual black hole/ abyss/ drowning whirlpool of U2 (especially Bono) AND U2 FALSE "CHRISTIAN" FERVENT IDOLATER-FAN-popularized #/no one can know the truth about God/# SELF-and-SIN-"EXCUSING" "UNCERTAINTY."
For individuals to KEEP ON shutting-out Divinely-provided “BOOK OF NATURE”/ CREATION-TESTIFIED, scriptural-spiritual TRUTH is for such persons to BE DISHONEST-HEARTED in their "looking for"/ searching for God.
Soon, all "excuses" for not listening to and OBEYING the Creator's truth will be OVER with, evaporated, gone. Persons STILL making such “excuses” will, indeed, be regarded as “INEXCUSABLE” for doing so. Again, please READ Romans 1:20, and 1:18-32 surrounding that.
How futile it would be, then, to stand before One's Maker (Armageddon Day, here, soon) and even TRY to squeak out (or even think) "But I still haven't found what I'm looking for"!
Then, as warned, it WILL BE TOO LATE to "find" God and his truth......So do it
I cry for you Theresa | Reviewer: Gioviero | 1/24/09
really I cry. Faith is rarely supported by a scientific proof, it is almost always a choice. Direct revelation of God is extremely rare and we are asked to decide and deduct whether we want to believe in Him or not in the Realm of uncertainty. Therefore this song is wonderful: we are in the realm of uncertainty now until we'll die and from here we shout to the sky begging for a reason.."God if you are there, then PLEASE show yourself to us!!" This song expresses the dramatic choice any man has to face in the absurdity of life. It is absurd as we completely lack a thorough and scientific explanation for our existence. And here and now, we choose. Either we choose to believe that God exists and He has created us, or we choose to believe in the absence of God and in the existence of Chaos. Some even decide that it is impossible to decide. But no, you can't say that ultimately it is something different from a choice or a belief, a blind jump or the refusal to jump, in all the three cases. And I see in your writing the inability to capture the complexity of the picture, and what scares me even more, the inability to appreciate art as such, which is nothing but the crying of the human nature against the mysteries of life. I was personally touched by the atheist guy who was supporting God before, and I'm doing the same the other way round, as a Christian I show my understanding and complete respect for those who have chosen a different path because the problem is incredibly complex and though I have chosen a clear path I still don't know whether I will be right or wrong in the end. Only thing I can do is to hope and have faith, which is different from selling the truths of my religion as if they were hamburgers or flattening the others with the bulldozer of my Bible knowledge, unable to hear the bones that are cracking while I pass over them.
God bless you.
Re: The Maligned "Watchtower" Symbol, Continued | Reviewer: theresa1 | 12/21/08
Those excitedly and thoughtlessly repeating slander usually neither refer to or even know of the existence of the scriptural reasonings for the things they fight, in the name of their FALSE, God-denying religions/spiritual modes.
For instance, the "Watchtower" insignia in question comes from various scriptural mentions of such a tower, symbolic of always keeping on the watch for happenings of spiritual significance, so as to take spirit-led appropriate action, especially as Armageddon draws nearer and nearer.
One such occurance is Isaiah 21:8.
That also seems, imo, to be the inspiration - those loosely - for Dylan's song, "All Along the Watchtower", which U2 at one time covered. I used to believe they meant what they sang.
However, now this seems to apply to them, as they seem to have found "what [they] are looking for" by selling out to the false religions and empty spiritual philosophies (such as atheism) of the world -
(Imagine God speaking this) -
"Businessmen they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth/ None of them along the line, know what any of this is worth."
God's scriptural truth and other things holy to him, his wine, is exploited for human popularity and gain. The "earth" sometimes is scripturally-symbolically used to mean human society. That too is being spiritually exploited by the ungodly forces that be rather than cultivated so that humankind can spiritually thrive.
"None of them along the line know what any of this is worth."
Yet, some keep on the watch, see what is coming, and DO sound the alarm, whether persons around them wish to remain spiritually drunken and sleepy, even mocking and disrespecting God or not.
How Long, to Sing this Song...... | Reviewer: theresa1 | 12/17/08
Continued – (Back to) Reason 3.) It is spiritual INJUSTICE to keep holding people’s FORMER wrong beliefs/ FALSE religious practices against them; once they have truly, repentantly, left those ways BEHIND; have turned to true, scriptural, obedient worship; and keep on loyally obeying God’s righteous ways. So, to that effect, WHO CARES WHAT Brother Russell’s FORMER religious beliefs and practices were, no matter WHAT they were??? Whatever they were, HE LEFT THEM BEHIND; honest-heartedly went LOOKING FOR Jehovah/Yahweh’s TRUTH in the Holy Scriptures (along with a small group of fellow scriptural TRUTH-seekers); and then OBEYED that scriptural truth AS HE (and others of that small group of honest-hearted Bible students) FOUND IT. That truth included that real worshipers of Jehovah and real disciples of Jesus Christ actively SHARE God’s SCRIPTURAL TRUTH and WARNINGS with others, too. So that’s what these people did; and – UNLIKE any FALSE, anti-scriptural religion - Jehovah/Yahweh blessed them for their efforts, and has continued to uniquely back that one same group, as prophesied.
MOST people who are Jehovah’s Witnesses today (myself included) were FORMERLY of a FALSE religion or other form of false (anti-scriptural) worship, which ALL are spiritistically tainted. In each such case, some realization occurred to each one of us that the various FALSE religions/ FALSE spiritual modes we were involved born into/ involved in were FAILING TO SUPPLY WHAT OUR INBORN SPIRITUAL NEED WAS NATURALLY “LOOKING FOR”. In that, many/most of us felt “different” from the mob-majority, spiritually. And, through hindsight, we were. INJUSTICE DISTURBED US. UNJUST SUFFERING DISTURBED US. UNRIGHTEOUSNESS DISTURBED US. Anything short of TRUTH with Divine Authorization and spirit behind it (i.e., anti-scriptural doctrines of men) was short of being acceptable as something to honest-heartedly believe; PLUS, elements of spiritism and realization of the history and current practices of GROSS INJUSTICE by the world’s FALSE religions “in the name of God” or “Christ” became REPULSIVE/disturbing to us. God and Jesus Christ NOTE THAT KIND OF PERSON, and so we “got the call” TO COME OUT from spiritual deadlands.
As HONEST-HEARTED SEEKERS OF SPIRITUAL TRUTH, WE WENT “LOOKING FOR” what could really be mind, heart, and soul fulfilling – beliefs that were irrefutable as truth, and so had that strength. Whatever was of God’s truth would have LOVE as its basis and would exercise and produce RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUSTICE. WE FOUND THAT in Jehovah’s words. There would not be fakery, hypocrisy, and emotional brainwashing involved – those things would be REPUDIATED as spiritual deception. WE FOUND none of that badness in Jehovah’s words. Whatever was of the Creator would be in synch with the testimony of truths about Him as found in creation, which surrounds us; and that which is built into us as living beings made “in his image” – with some of his same “inner” attributes. WE FOUND THAT in Jehovah’s words. Whatever was of God’s truth would provide us with explanation of our purpose and place as human beings; where we came from; why the world is in the terrible state it is; and what TRUE HOPE there is for the future. WE FOUND THAT in Jehovah’s words. Whatever was of God’s truth would give us wisest guidance, spiritually-sustaining comfort/ consolation, and and empowerment/encouragement to continue doing what is right. We found that in Jehovah’s words. We would be willing to humbly OBEY and UPHOLD with integrity whatever we FOUND to be TRUE about God through such a “search.” THAT IS WHY GOD, who reads people’s hearts, LET US “FIND” HIM.
That is why - along with the backing of God’s holy spirit (his power) and the leadership of his Son, Jesus Christ (God’s appointed head of the global TRUE Christian congregation) - we stand strong now; and are globally spiritually unified. We are still “different” from the world in general, spiritually, but that is a GOOD thing.
So, Jehovah’s people – despite SLANDERING claims made by those who actually reject the whole of God’s vital words – ARE NOT THE “BRAINWASHED” ONES of mankind. Whether we were formerly of one of the world’s FALSE religions/ FALSE spiritual modes or grew up as a child of Jehovah’s Witness parents, EACH ONE OF US WHO IS TRUE TO BEING WHO WE SAY WE ARE HAS MADE OUR “SEARCH” – we examined/ searched through the tenets and terms of worship of this belief system, which are contained in the Holy Scriptures themselves; we agree that they are PROVEN to be TRUE, and are in accordance with the Authority and spirit of God; and we do our still imperfect human best to follow them, despite pressure, hate, mockery, etc. from a basically ungodly/godless world THAT HAS, as a mass-mob-majority, BEEN BRAINWASHED to be spiritually false, hypocritical, apathetic, and God-rebellious. (1John 5:19)
Further, because we have been TRAINED BY JEHOVAH, because we know and speak his scriptural truth, we are “FULLY EQUIPPED” to handle preaching God’s messages in a world generally in spiritual darkness and alienated from God - to WARN people of God’s coming Day of Vengeance; and to help along the RELATIVELY FEW HONEST-HEARTED PERSONS LEFT that are TRULY SEARCHING FOR GOD’S TRUTH. That way, honest-hearted persons, too, for their righteous gratitude to/ respect for their Maker, can see scriptural reason to LEAVE THE FALSE RELIGIOUS/FALSE SPIRITUAL WAYS OF THE WORLD BEHIND (Revelation 18:4,5); and then experience the joy, freedom, and happy sure hope that comes from TRUE KNOWLEDGE of this very Good God and his promises - followed-up by worshiping/obeying God as he desires and requires, “with spirit and truth.” (John 4:24)
Since we HAVE been trained by God and are able to base what we say on TRUE knowledge FROM HIM, we are able to use God’s words like KEYS: we can help INDIVIDUALS unlock WHATEVER UNIQUE spiritual doors, padlocked chains, etc. jail them/ bind them from being able to appreciate the freedom, happiness, and future God’s truth offers. God uses his human servants, each unique, to help humble individuals, each unique, with their own unique/ particular/ various questions, doubts, challenges, etc., in ever-various/unique situations.
IF we were “brainwashed” by men, and ONLY robotically did, spoke or believed “what the Watchtower” told us to (as the above repeater-of-SLANDER claimed), not only would it be impossible for 6.5 individuals globally to function/ survive with their unique and changing individual needs and situations, etc; but IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO MEET the demands of preaching life-saving truth to the VARIETY of individuals that there are, with their VARIETY of backgrounds, cultures, personalities, questions, challenges, etc., in such a VARIETY of situations in which scriptural truth needs to be spoken.
The REALITY IS, though, again, we ARE TRAINED BY GOD and LED BY HIS SPIRIT (power) TO PREACH HIS SCRIPTURAL MESSAGES OF TRUTH. The COMMANDS and PRINCIPLES of the Bible COVER EVERY NECESSARY TRUTH and warning and that people need now. They work for EVERYONE, no matter what their unique personality, background, situations, questions, etc. are.
The informational/ instructional/ educational materials put out by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society/ International Bible Students are only BIBLE STUDY AIDS, as they have only ever been: The Holy Scriptures, the Word of God itself has ALWAYS BEEN and REMAINS the SOLE AUTHORITY FOR ALL SPIRITUAL ISSUES. NOTHING from men’s thinking SUPERCEDES that Divine AUTHORITY. These Bible study AIDS, however, deliver insightful and timely explanations/ reasonings from the Scriptures and applications of them UNMATCHED by any others though. As such, they are invaluable – especially as the urgency for individuals to have scriptural understanding of such things is so pressing now, before Armageddon.
(CONTRAST all that, though, from the majority of the world’s FALSE religions: Standardly, in their realms, the word of God is relegated to SECOND PLACE OR LESS as the spiritual “authority”; with the trend-philosophies, traditions, doctrines, creeds of men exalted as “truth”; EVEN ABOVE AND AGAINST THE WORDS OF GOD HIMSELF.)
Note, again, please the vicious unrighteousness of the poster’s grotesque attempt to “discredit the speaker”, whose argument they were not able to refute on a SCRIPTURAL BASIS: The poster made accusations to the effect that people of my religion ARE NOT EVEN ABLE TO THINK; MENTALLY PROCESS INFORMATION FOR OURSELVES; make our own free-willed, scripturally informed decisions regarding spiritual matters, our lives, etc., but need to have other people do it for us. In other words, the poster attempted a total discreditation for my thinking ability and responses, and that of other people of my religion (6.5 million people, globally, but still THE MINORITY VOICE/ OPINION in a world dominated by rebellion towards God).
Amazing, is it not?
Again, Jesus Christ is Jehovah’s appointed head of the global congregation of TRUE Christians/ TRUE worshipers of God. That is what the Scriptures say, and so that is what we teach. Jesus Christ is the One Ransomer of mankind (Jehovah’s provision for that); and of course, the ONLY MEDIATOR between God and man. (1Timothy 2:5) That is what we teach and have ONLY EVER TAUGHT.
DESPITE LIP-SERVICE to those concepts, and FALSE CHARGES towards TRUE (Scripture-following) worshipers of God regarding those things however, the truth is, FOR THEIR INFAMOUS IDOLATRY – for putting other philosophies and/ or persons (i.e., the pope, Bono, Billy Graham, John Smith, etc.) ABOVE THE WORD OF GOD AS THE AUTHORITY FOR SPIRITUAL MATTERS, such FALSE RELIGIONISTS MAKE ANTI-SCRIPTURAL PHILOSOPHIES and/or OTHER PERSONS THEIR “MEDIATOR” BETWEEN GOD AND MAN – their “Way”, their “channel” to “worship” God through. A PROBLEM that creates, however, is that there is really any “mediation” happening at all in such cases though – Jehovah REJECTS their attempts at worship of him via IDOLATRY (and SPIRITUAL LIES, etc.)
Here is exposure of the “worth” of more of the above LIAR’s SLANDEROUS charges.
The slander-copier stated, “Your religion’s 1914 theory was something Russell came up with and based that belief on the dimensions of a pyramid.”
That statement very much possesses, again, the tell-tale qualities of THOUGHTLESS, MERELY RE-COPIED WANTON GOSSIP-SLANDER – “information”, this time an EXTORTED PARTIAL-TRUTH producing A LIE, passed around at face “value”, without reference/credential/authority WHATSOVER.
But now for the TRUTH: Our “religion’s 1914 theory” IS BASED ON BIBLE CHRONOLOGY AND MULTIPLE SCRIPTURAL PROPHECIES – regarding both people’s attitudes and behaviors AS WELL AS WORLD EVENTS - AS THEY ARE BEING FULFILLED and HAVE BEEN FULFILLED. Since those sometimes very detailed prophesies marking Christ’s presence in heavenly Kingdom power and the “last days” of this world system – which both DID BEGIN in 1914 - involve the whole Bible, tying together major prophesies from Isaiah and Jeremiah to Daniel and Ezekiel, to the “minor prophets”, to Jesus’ words in the “four gospels”, to Timothy, to 2Peter, to 1John, to Jude, to Revelation and more; one can only pathetically wonder at the MAJOR SCRIPTURAL IGNORANCE that a pat-piece, extortion of a “half-truth” creating a FALSE accusation such as, “Your religion’s 1914 theory was something Russell came up with and based that belief on the dimensions of a pyramid” reveals.
Brother Russell, for 35 years, did think that there was a LITERAL sign from God in Egypt (compare Isaiah 19:19) and he figured that sign, which he thought to be the Great Pyramid of Gizeh, was “The Bible Stone Witness”, confirming biblical time periods. That concept of an Egyptian pyramid as having anything to do with pure worship, however, was thrown-out by Jehovah’s people later, as can be noted in the Watchtower issues of 11-15-28 and 12-1-28. That is more proof, then, that this is true religion, NOT a cult-following of any man. Do slanderers bother to also tell that “pyramid idea” was scrapped? Of course not!!! That is because their aim is deception, and their tactics are FAR from honest.
The biblical chronology and biblical prophesies pointing to 1914 as being the beginning of Christ’s presence, the end of the “gentile times”, and the start of “the time of the end”/ “the last days” which Jehovah’s people taught since about 1879 – the MAIN EVENTS about “1914” – WERE VINDICATED AS ACCURATE. Slanderers do NOT tell THAT though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(Ironically, that poster themself has, again, joined in fulfilling multiple scriptural prophesies describing how many people would react/ behave towards messages of God and Christ’s words and warnings, especially during “the last days” (Isaiah 6:9,10/ Matthew 13:13-15; Isaiah 29:9-15; Matthew 5:11,12; John 15:18-20; Romans 1:18-32; 2Timothy 3:1-9,13; 4:3,4; 2Peter Chapter 2 and 3:1-7; Jude; and much more.)
[And shall we bring up the alleged gravestone of Brother Russell again? I think we should. The words of the slander-repeater above: “It's a pyramid with crosses & mason symbols.” THERE IS A PHOTO OF THAT BROTHER’S GRAVESTONE ON PAGE 64 of the book, “Jehovah’s Witnesses – Proclaimers of God’s Kingdom.” It is the shape of a normal gravestone, NOT a pyramid whatsoever, and it shows WHEAT and common filigree designs – NOT “crosses and mason symbols”. (I would not be surprised if a Satanic slanderer of God’s people put up a FAKE gravestone somewhere though…)]
Ahhh, what else. The “hidden occult images” in our literature……Again, that is EXTORTED information, which the poster and those like them use to create FALSE CHARGES of WRONGDOING. There are NO “hidden” images in our literature. If persons stuck on there being “hidden” images have such a problem “seeing” what is in front of their face, I suggest GLASSES instead of psychotically-evilly making up LIES and spreading them.
Sometimes our literature show PICTURES of OCCULT and other IMAGES USED BY FALSE RELIGIONS – as EXAMPLES and/ or WARNINGS. For instance, in “The Divine Name that will Endure Forever” brochure, on page 9, five of the images seen there show God’s personal holy name, surrounded by what is pagan imagery, including that it is enclosed by a triangle and sun rays (as used in sun god images) – EACH OF THEM IS A PHOTO OF A CHURCH DECORATION, the churches all being ones of FALSE religions. The POINT of those pictures being used in the brochure IS TO SHOW THAT, in the past, God’s holy name, as represented by the Tetragrammaton, WAS USED in many churches. (Their use, however, was blasphemous.)
And, nearly lastly, the poster’s “report” on “Artemis” and the FALSE charge that the “Watchtower” image is the same as on “Artemis’” crown –
Artemis, as a goddess image, had much in common with OTHER goddesses – they mostly just varied in appearance from location to location, but all stood for a [FALSE] female version of “god.” They also commonly stood for demonistic sex worship, and often had exaggerated sex organs; such as Artemis of Ephesus with her ten breasts. All were God-forbidden IDOL images promoting teachings of demons, which produce unrighteous and unjust behaviors (such as fervency for war, etc.)
The towers/ turrets on the crown of Artemis of Ephesus images are VERY VAGUE “towers” (representing “protection”, by the goddess, to her city) LACKING DETAIL ENTIRELY - and shape much - as compared to the “Watchtower” symbol on the front of that also-named magazine. THE CLEAR DISIMILARITY SPEAKS FOR ITSELF – for anyone to claim that our literature uses a symbol of a false goddess as its “trademark” is preposterous extortion and SLANDER.
Finally, lets again talk about IDOLATRY, and sex and goddess worship.
ALL of those three elements are found in FALSE “Christian” U2 IDOLATRY. First, most FALSE “Christian” U2 fans are involved in “trinity” worship, much of which maintains (anti-scripturally) that there are three parts to their godhead, and one of them is FEMALE; which is the same triune godhead template of ancient pagans, the female presence there facilitating the value of goddess-SEX WORSHIP. Bono has also taught that concept, including in his songs “Mysterious Ways” and U2’s cover of “Dancing Barefoot”; and, further, he has visibly supported churches and religionists which worship “the trinity” – so long as they support his “social justice” movements.
Moreover, though, many U2 fans HAVE MADE AN IDOL OUT OF BONO; and have shown themselves to be as fervent in defending worship of him as ARTEMIS WORSHIPERS and silversmith makers of her IDOL images were in the past. Yes, yes: Just like silversmith makers of Artemis statues became panicked that the teaching of God’s truth in their area might cause people to NOT BUY their idol images, which could make THEIR PROFITS GO DOWN - and so ran the Apostle Paul, with his preaching, out of town – so, about 7 years ago, U2 PR-people ran me “out of town” (from zootopia.u2.com), where I had written about God’s truth (including the value of his personal holy name) for about three years solid. Many of the idolater-inhabitants didn’t like what I wrote though. It disturbed their idolatries. And…..the new album, HTDAAB, with its song “YAHWEH” on it was about to come out/ was newly released. The PR people/ marketers, etc. of U2, like the Artemis silversmiths, I do think, did not want their PROFITS to go down.
But God – Yahweh/ Jehovah’s TRUTH and justice? It ALWAYS gets vindicated – at least eventually.
P.S. There is NOTHING ATTRACTIVE about SLANDERING God (or messengers of HIS words and truth). Sticking the word “honey” in with a pile of very foolish, persecutive slander does not sweeten it either. It is still only foul and ugly.
(Also, see my post under "Yahweh" that addressed some other FALSE charges made by that same poster.)
Sing a new song.
I'm sorry teresa, but please suck my dick | Reviewer: Darien | 12/10/08
teresa, please suck my dick and go to hell. Thats really all I have to say to you. What makes it more amusing is that you probably spent hours typing up your moronic responses to comments on a song that you really know nothing about. I really hope someday you fall into a pit full of hypodermic needles surrounded by Goliath tarantulas and as you lie there in agony, this song plays. Maybe then you'll understand the meaning.
Now, for all you Christian listeners and readers, stop being pussies and stand up for yourselves. Its time for idiots like this who yes, I know, are loved by God, but God never said a good ass kicking was out of the question. Ass-whipes like Teresa1 need to be dealt with, not tolerated. And Teresa, I'll happily be the one to put you in your motherfuckin place if you don't cut the bullshit and go die of AIDS or something.
Whats funny is I'm defending a God I don't even believe in. And theresa knows more scripture than a televeangalist. Yet it seems not one of us can come up with a solid point.
What do we really need to do? Listen to the damn music. Listen to the guitar jammin away, Bono's voice carrying through you like a breeze, this music is calming to me. And I don't give a shit if its God, Satan, or even if its just the air-conditioning turning on, I feel different when I hear U2's music. You can't change that with all your Satan-Worshiping horseshit, nor your cutsie pie answers on religion and Christianity.
The fact of the matter is, no one knows anything really. Get over it.
If God is all knowing, then how will we know what he's up to?
My solution to the conundrum? I turn up the music.
So Many Demonistic and DYING FALSE "Christian"/ Artemis-Type-Goddess-Worshiping U2 IDOLATERS LOOKING FOR LIES | Reviewer: theresa1 | 12/2/08
The above example of fierce U2 IDOLATER DEMONISM / FALSE “Christian” apostate DEMONISM – conscience-less Satan-spirited SLANDER written in effort to fight spiritual lie-exposing, scriptural truth from being made known - is certainly not the only one that has filthified song-meaning and music message boards over the past SEVEN YEARS. I have collected far more than a book’s worth of other similar FITS of PUBLIC SLANDER written by U2 IDOLATERS/ FALSE religionists in response to my writing of SCRIPTURAL warning words against the WAVES of anti-scriptural spiritual “teachings” that have been mass-media-ed to the public by Bono/U2 AND THEIR FALSE RELIGIOUS IDOLATER “FANS” themselves (which include many FALSE “Christians” and FALSE “Christian” religious LEADERS).
Does the above poster (whom I will NOT personally address) really imagine that they are passing out NEW “information” under the guise of being “helpful” and authoritative? They are absolutely NOT. Instead, the poster has chosen to CARELESSLY REPEAT WORTHLESS and DEADLY GOSSIP-LIES, MOST OF WHICH ARE THE SAME OLD, VERY CLICHÉ pieces of demon-influenced/crafted SLANDER that FALSE-religionist (including witch/spiritist and atheist together with FALSE “Christian”) U2 IDOLATERS HAVE ALSO thought-lackingly/ animalistically REPEATED through those years; and which have also been the standard diseased, regurgitated excremental fare shared by FALSE religious/FALSELY spiritual LIE-LOVERS but haters of God’s words in general for much longer than that
It is despicable spiritual, mental and even ethical SLOVENLINESS – as well as deadly demonism – on the part of those spreading such slander though, is it not? Yet, such persons seem to feel COMPELLED and false-pridedly entitled to commit the CRIME of GROTESQUE INJUSTICE against God and humanity that SLANDER is (especially when it is against God, his scriptural truth, his Son, and his scripturally-described people).
They do this to DEFEND their CULTISH IDOLATRY of U2, especially Bono; and the PROPHESIED-TYPE easy-going/ear-tickling, SEX-WORSHIP/sinful desire-accomodating/”excusing”, Scripture-denying/disregarding, FALSE religion/FALSE spirituality-promoting and reinforcing form of “worship” that Bono mass-media taught (i.e., by teaching a large television/video audience that the only requirement for “true religion” is that people support “social justice” programs; and (in another mass-mediated speech) that Jesus Christ is not judgmental when it comes to sexual morality/ homosexuality, etc. [Both those concepts are wholly FALSE though - ANTI-scriptural , ANTI-God, and ANTICHRIST.] That FALSE worship – [FALSELY] “in the name of God” and “Christ” , though in the “ONE”ness of humanity (as creation-worship) has been WELL-APPLAUDED by those “LOOKING FOR” ANYTHING BUT THE TRUTH (about God and his will) [not wanting to deal with its obligations, responsibilities, and accountability] however; and so Bono has thus further become a highly-desirable sensual hero-guru-god of such persons (with marketers following close behind).
The righteous-hearted response to disciplining and warning messages from God’s words is to “listen” to them, check them for scriptural accuracy, and then follow-through by personally applying them – to change one’s heart and mind so as to meet Jehovah/Yahweh’s own SCRIPTURAL requirements, to HEED those warnings, to OBEY God.
The UNRIGHTEOUS-hearted response, however, AS PROPHESIED, is to SHOW HATRED for disciplining and warning words from God (and Jesus Christ) - disrespecting, mocking, ridiculing, slandering, twisting, extorting, and maligning them. Along with that too – as DEMONstrated by the extremely UNJUST and SLANDEROUS speech of the poster above and by many others like them on U2/music message boards, etc. over the years – such persons also likewise show HATRED for scripturally loyal and obedient messengers of those words.
Over the past seven years, I have observed and first-hand experienced God-fighting responses/reactions and appallingly unjust treatment from U2 IDOLATER/FALSE religionists that have brought so many prophesies and scriptural descriptions “to life” – such as ones which refer to manipulative and deceptive speech tactics tried by “wicked ones”; and those which describe liars/slanderers, and “stupid ones.”
I have also seen – not just for the past seven years – but for the past 25 years – how very TRUE it IS that NO ONE is EVER ABLE to DISPROVE Jehovah’s truth, based on his Scriptures; and so, also, no one has ever been able to prove that the ONE single global religion that upholds God’s Holy Bible as its AUTHORITY for all spiritual matters and is obedient and loyal to it is anything but Jehovah God the Creator’s one prophesied single spiritual organization on earth during this time of the end that he IS blessing and using for the teaching and saving of people through the upcoming Armageddon. All ATTEMPTS to DISPROVE these things on a SCRIPTURAL BASIS ALWAYS FAIL - no matter how fervently fierce and angry, demonically-deceptive, sickeningly and wrongfully presumptuous, false-prided, or majority-opinion-pushing/threatening those attempts are.
IT IS WHEN HATERS OF GOD’S TRUTH and so HATERS OF THE ONE TRUE RELIGION PRODUCED BY IT REALIZE THAT THEY CAN NEVER “WIN” at FIGHTING AGAINST THESE THINGS BY HONESTLY USING THE SCRIPTURES THEMSELVES AS THEIR BASIS and “PROOF” THAT THEY are “right” in their opposition to these things that they TRY TO FIGHT GOD, HIS BODY OF TRUTH, and HIS PEOPLE by UNJUST and CORRUPT TACTICS, SUCH AS “ATTACKING THE SPEAKER”/ human messengers of Jehovah/ Yahweh’s scriptural truth WITH ABUSIVE SLANDER, discouraging DECEPTION, and FALSE STORIES, etc. – ALL MEANT to WEAKEN and/ or SILENCE THE TELLER OF TRUTH THAT THEY DO NOT WANT TO BE MADE KNOWN (because that truth exposes and condemns false beliefs and evil practices as being just what they are – unacceptable, according to the words of God himself).
Again, such unjust tactics were tried by the above fighter against God. Whoever that person is, THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO PROVIDE ANY PROOF THAT THEIR OPPOSITION IS SCRIPTURALLY FOUNDED AND CORRECT, ACCORDING TO GOD’S OWN WORDS.
SO THE POSTER TURNED TO SLANDER -
just like the demon-influenced wicked Pharisees in Jesus day did; when they hated the disciplining truth from God which he taught (which exposed and warned against their spiritual falseness and injustice), but could not honestly disprove it by using God’s words.
SLANDER is Satanic, demonic. In fact, “Devil” comes from a Greek word meaning “FALSE ACCUSER”, “MISREPRESENTER” and “SLANDERER.” So, the above poster, along with other U2 “fans” who have also chosen to brazenly FIGHT GOD with (even mostly THE SAME) public SLANDER and FALSE ACCUSATIONS against HIS scriptural messages and scripturally-prophesied and described messengers can all rightly be called DEVILS. Indeed, as Jesus also told the wicked Pharisees that slandered him, Satan is “the father of the lie”; so when people choose to fight against God by SLANDERING/LYING against his body of truth and true and loyal worshipers who are preaching his truth, those SLANDERER/LIARS are doing the wicked works of that “father” – they make themselves Satan’s children, further opening themselves up to demonic influence and the unjust behavior that comes from that. (See John 8:44-47.)
Another phenomena I’ve observed through the years is that, yes, persons choosing to fight truth from God have developed madness and mental disease, just like he warned could happen, from continued DENIALof TRUTH and fighting against it. (2Timothy 3:8,9; Romans 1:18-32, note verses 20-22 and 28.)
For instance, some fervent U2 IDOLATER/FALSE religionists (included those bragging of active involvement with spiritism) who have hounded and even gang/team attacked Scripture-based writing I’ve done with clearly unfounded, ridiculous-obvious SLANDER, and entirely PIGGISH and LEWD remarks must have made tremendous FOOLS out of themselves in the eyes of any observers with even a basic sense of justice. IF those fierce and relentless slanderers HAD a mentally healthy sense of reality and basic concern for self-dignity, would they not have considered that other onlookers might view their intensely unjust behavior as ludicrous, extremely shameful, unrighteous, and UGLY – and so stopped with it? But they didn’t…….
Now, let’s examine some of the above poster’s SLANDER.
Carefully notice the abusive word choices and intention, along with TOTAL LACK of ANY supporting evidence for the maligning accusations made:
[Charles T. Russell]……”was a nut case and he was tied in with the occult”
Oh really? WHERE IS THIS ACCUSER’S EVIDENCE? OH – THEY HAVE NONE; and, evidently, neither does their conscience CARE, since they’ve had no qualm about immorally (and criminally) merely REPEATING and SPREADING SLANDEROUS LIES ABOUT OTHERS.
So, even at the outset of their discourse, their “word” should be DISMISSED, for BEING DISHONEST, UNTRUTHFUL, UNRELIABLE, and UNTRUSTWORTHY. Even with that statement alone, they have already blown their “case” away as being TRASH.
However, even prior to that, the person dared level the cliché-repeated accusation that THE HUMAN Charles Russell was THE FOUNDER of the Jehovah’s Witness religion. There is NO TRUTH TO THAT AT ALL whatsoever; and to even make that statement reveals MUCH SCRIPTURAL IGNORANCE: ABSOLUTELY, it is GOD HIMSELF, as per HIS OWN scripturally stated purposes and SPIRIT (POWER) that is the CREATOR/ FOUNDER and standard-keeper, etc. of acceptable PURE WORSHIP of himself.
Also notice: If Brother Russell was a cult leader, WHERE, for instance, in any of my seven years of writing U2 / U2 IDOLATER rebuttals (and spiritual WARNINGS) are HIS quotes then???????? Oh – I think you’d find NONE, or perhaps one (unmemorable) instance….WHAT DO YOU FIND INSTEAD – WHO’S QUOTES, exuberantly and consistently.???????????? Why those would be Jehovah/Yahweh God Almighty’s, along with those he channeled through his Son, Jesus Christ – all SCRIPTURAL QUOTES, WORDS FROM THE TRUE LEADER/ “FOUNDER” OF THE ONE TRUE RELIGION ON EARTH (the one formed by God’s own words
Jehovah/ Yahweh God stated that HE would gather a faithful, global people together as his own – by way of his name – for “the last days”. That is EXACTLY what has happened; though IT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED WITH OR WITHOUT the faithful human Brother Russell being involved at the beginning of that gathering (DONE BY GOD) or not.
“Do not be afraid, for I am with you. From the sunrising I shall bring your seed, and from the sunset I shall collect you together. I shall say to the north, ‘Give up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not keep back. Bring my sons from far off, and my daughters from the extremity of the earth, everyone that is called by my name and that I have created for my own glory, that I have formed, yes, that I have made.’… “YOU are my witnesses,” is the utterance of Jehovah, “even my servant whom I have chosen, in order that YOU may know and have faith in me, and that YOU may understand that I am the same One. Before me there was no God formed, and after me there continued to be none. I—I am Jehovah, and besides me there is no savior.” (Isaiah 43:5-7,10,11)
Persons who have been party to the countless times the previously-mentioned lie-gossip has been spread simply do not bother quoting Scriptures such as the above prophesy from God, which refutes their human-made FALSE charges though, do they? No, of course not. That is because their “interest” in spiritual TRUTH is LACKING.
Many such FALSE-ACCUSATION SPREADERS HAVE FOUND WHAT THEY ARE “LOOKING FOR” in LIES, that is why. Spiritual lies seem to present no boundaries for such persons – they seem to offer “freedom” for people to do WHAT THEY WANT, despite what God has to say.
Oh, what else…alleged ”free mason” symbols on Charles Russell’s grave? Even IF that is true, it is still INCONSEQUENTIAL to the standing of Jehovah’s Witnesses as being God’s ONE true and loyal religion for a few reasons. Reason 1.) The man is dead. People can put whatever they want on a dead person’s grave, because there’s nothing a dead person can do about it. Reason 2.) At the beginning of God’s gathering of “a people for his name” for the last days, while leaving most of Babylonish and discovered to be anti-scriptural FALSE religious beliefs and practices behind, some vestiges of false religion still remained to be cleared out, such as the celebration of Christmas, the use of decorative crosses, etc. By 1919, such items and practices put far out and away from pure worship. So, even IF those symbols were on C.T. Russell’s grave, upon learning why they were scripturally inappropriate, the man surely would not have wanted them there.
Did FALSE “Christianity”/ Christendom progress to CLEAN/ CLEAR itself of Babylonish images and idols of spiritism though? NO – most of Christendom still EMBRACES ITS IDOL IMAGES, and has for hundreds of years. Crosses made “great” emblems for their Christ-disobedient soldiers to have painted on their battle shields as they’ve gone off to murder for their kings/nations [“in the name of God”]; and the same phallic crosses [with that spirit] are now making “great” rock and roll trend-fashion…
Indeed, BONO famously wears a so-called “free-mason”, definitely pagan/ spiritistic idol cross symbol around his neck; and so do MANY of his FALSE “Christian” fans (YET THE ABOVE POSTER SELECTIVELY/CONVENIENTLY FAILS TO CONDEMN THAT).
Yet Jesus never even died on a cross! He was executed/murdered upon a single upright stake with no horizontal crossbar (a stauros, a xylon). The cross that person’s chose to “represent” Christ is, as stated, a spiritistic/pagan symbol; one that was anciently and widespreadly used to represent sex/goddess worship (it being a phallic symbol), “T” for Tammuz the sun god (deified Nimrod), Druid tree worship, and more. It is also used as magic symbol, charm, and talisman/“protective” sign to [FALSELY] “ward-off” demons.
ALSO, since the subject has been brought up, I would like to take this opportunity to draw your attention to this post, which lists 25 or so pagan and spiritistic IDOL images (some of which have been called “free mason” symbols as well).
Tragically, U2 blasphemously performed the song “Yahweh” to a giant stage backdrop, video-image-lightshow parade of such IDOL images – in front of MILLIONS of people on their last tour. Whereas they did NOT perform “Yahweh” for the last 11 shows of that tour; to this day they have allowed – and have neither retracted nor condemned – “U2 Yahweh” videos (which have been shown worldwide, some for more than two years now) which also stream the same idol images used in the lightshow. They also made a featured place for that same video “cartoon” of blasphemous idol images to show while “Yahweh” is sung at the end of their U2 3D movie. What a loss.
just thoughts | Reviewer: Gibbs | 11/30/08
As a christian, i believe that people have and sadly still do often come to church and know all of the head knowledge without really encountering God. Things stem out of religious duty and are driven by titles rather than awe and love. So while i know this is simply my opinion, i could see how someone could "know" what christ did, but still not find what they're looking for. =]
What a nut job! | Reviewer: Paula | 11/21/08
Theresa...maybe you should quit going on with rediculous assumptions that U2 and any of their listeners are demonic and take a look at your own religion. You should google Charles T Russell and read up on this man that "founded" your religion...he was a nut case and he was tied in with the occult. Your religions 1914 theory was something Russell came up with and based that belief on the dimensions of a pyramid. Have you seen his gravestone? It's a pyramid with crosses & mason symbols.Have you seen the hidden occult images in your literature....they are there, I have seen them with my own eyes. And you little Watchtower symbol on your magazine...that comes from a false god named Artemis...she has 3 of those same watchtower symbols coming out of the top of her head. Who is Artemis? Artemis was associated with death and the underworld and came to be associated with magic, astrology, and the dark goddess Hecate. In Athens, Hecate was worshipped as Artemis Hecate and also as Kalliste, another of Artemis’ cult titles. Sacrifices to Artemis Hecate were performed in Hecate’s shrine at Erchia in Attica.
Also your religion was a member of the United Nations for over 10 years and quit being members once they were "caught" at it and it was published all over the newspapers...isnt being with the UN a big no no with JW's? Yes it is.
Google it if you dont believe me...better yet get the phone number to Bethel and call & ask them they will admit to it. Honey you just belong to a cult that has brainwashed you & you dont have an idea of what your religion is. You just believe what the Watchtower tells you & that without it you cant understand the bible or wont have God. The sooner you get away from that poisonous bunch the better you will be. You will finally have peace when you do. And honey...the only way to salvation is through Jesus, to accept him as your saviour...not through the Watchtower Bible & Tract society. There is no mediator but Jesus so they cant be your mediator! When you get the poison out of your mind you will think clearer & see clearer and you will have peace within when you finally accept Jesus...the right way.
And if you find U2 and their lyrics so apalling...why are you coming on their sight? Why are you even listening to it?
Urgent Reality, with Authority - NOT Empty Speech and Promises | Reviewer: theresa1 | 10/21/08
Everything I said is true - based on the Authority of God's own words.
You? What's your Authority?
Nothing BUT your own opinion, correct? - though it is traitful of many Bono-emboldened U2 fans
DENIAL. Yes - you, and many person, have DEADLY problems with DENIAL. The Creator-God that you've broached to the public - according to the thoughts IN YOUR OWN HEAD - does not exist has named persons being like you are as INEXCUSABLE.
I do not believe that persons who step forward to fight-out that God does not exist are capable of anything except SELFISHNESS. I do NOT TRUST anyone who denies their own Maker's existence with anything of any value - especially care of the lives of other human beings.
If there is a "kindergarten" of the school of life, those who so brazenly blab-out that "there is no God" SURELY FLUNK IT.
Stubborn denial of a Designer-Maker Creator is so far-flung OUT OF REALITY that it IS INSANITY. I have learned NOT TO TRUST or put much faith at all in the thinking or practices human beings that CHOOSE that DENIAL/ INSANITY.
Evidence that there IS NO God? The REALITY is that the only "evidence" that people come up with in effort to "prove" that is consistently FAULTY - consisting of piece-meal information (disregarding evidence otherwise) as well as LOADS OF MISINFORMATION, carelessly yet wantonly-wishfully stowed to the heart as convenient-ready pat-answer EXCUSES for persons to continue DENYING REALITY.
The REALITY of a Creator-Designer WITH PURPOSE is ON YOUR OWN FACE and the BREATH YOUR TAKE; the HANDS YOU TYPE WITH, and your eyeballs that see.
But tell everyone again the FAIRY-TALE (literally) FANTASY again, that those intense DESIGNS "just happened" - out of sheer nothingness. Those things had no "intelligent design" - and YOU, in your supreme "intelligence" are going to decree to the world that is so?????
Please present to the world now YOUR OWN LATEST "intelligent designs." Show pictures. Explain the workings of things that YOU HAVE DESIGNED and CREATED that are SUPERIOR in design to the eyeball, brain, circulatory system, hands, etc., etc. Then show us pid ctures, oh please, of your designs greater than the constituents of an atom and galaxy clusters - and how you keep the forces of these things going. Hurry - I'm so EAGER to SEE the CREATION PROJECTS YOU and other self-godded atheists and DENIERS of God have to offer. Since you are speaking AS IF YOU ARE HIGHER THAN GOD, SURELY YOUR CREATIONS MUST BE SUPERIOR TO . Show. Out with it, and you really should, if you want to "prove" the worth of your stand; because THE CREATOR'S WORKS ARE ALL AROUND.
"The fear of God is THE START OF WISDOM" (Proverbs 9:10) - so, again, WHERE ARE YOU AT?
The "godless one", the atheist, is no more "advanced" or spiritually intelligent than the blinded FALSE religionist. Both types also SERVE THE SAME BASE gOD, who is SATAN - the gOD of denying and fighting the truth of God.
No atheists have ever "saved our world". Atheists as a group - like FALSE religionists - have also proven themselves TO HAVE NO TRUE INTEGRITY to the value of PEACE. WHO HAVE COMPRISE THE BULK OF ALL CONSCIENTIOUS OBJECTORS since WWI ???? Atheists??? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Instead, it is TRUE, Bible-OBEDIENT worshipers of the Creator Jehovah who have. That is history, written in stone and more. So whereas the loud complaints made by atheiests as to the war-mongering of the world's FALSE religions is true, ATHEISTS HAVE DONE NO BETTER. Like FALSE religionists, their actions under test have proven to be JUST AS HYPOCRITICAL, just as FAILING, JUST AS HARMFUL TO THEIR FELLOW MEN. Like their FALSE-religionist fellows, they bear community BLOODGUILT before God for FAILING to take a stand against the slaughter of other humans too.
I strongly suggest "a beginning of wisdom." (And that would involve some reading. If you can't handle one whole page of information at once, try breaking up the material you read; reduce distractions around you, get enough rest, use good light, etc.......)
Please explain too: In seven years time, I have noticed many God-fighting atheists speak as if Bono is their god; and they ramble on as he has about the world, speak of vague manmade "solutions" to the world's problems as if they are sure cures and as if they are capable of accomplishing those fixes.
And more and more, it can be seen from Bono and HIS FOLLOWERS (IDOLATERS) - including atheiests and FALSE religionists TOGETHER - that the "KEY" to those "solutions" LIES IN DENYING and REBELLING against your own Maker.
So - I DON'T BELIEVE IN ANY OF YOU, as you are, or your CLAIMS that you can or will truly, lastingly "solve" ANY of the worlds problems. For persons who LIVE IN DENIAL of their own surroundings, so self-centeredly that they can't even manage to admit that THEY OWE GRATITUDE and submission to the Creator of themselves, others, the earth, and the universe, I think it could be a mistake for them to even be allowed to walk a dog down the street.
"The START of wisdom" - do you have any inkling of desire for it yet?
It also seems to often be that godless ones HAVE a god, alright, anyway: THEIR OWN DESIRES, and namely, with that, IMMORAL SEX that they are aware that the God of the Bible FORBIDS. So such persons BOW TO THEMSELVES. (FALSE religionists who deny the Bible's teachings on this - as many do - bow to themselves this way too.)
Now, a few pointers on your publically espoused MISINFORMATION -
IT is FALSE, actually Bible-DENYING "Christians" (as well as Taoists, Buddhists, Muslims, and Hinduists, ETC.) THAT BELIEVE IN HELL as a place of "after-life" punishment, so it is THEY who tragically live under fear of that, thus being controlled and brainwashed by FALSE RELIGIOUS LEADERS.
TRUE CHRISTIANS, who UNDERSTAND the whole of the Scriptures KNOW that concept of "hell" IS A LIE. So, know who you are addressing and what charges, does that not make sense?
How would a stubborn, God-fighting atheist eveen KNOW what is "beautiful"? On what basis? By what measure at all?
And love, peace, or real purpose in life??? I could just as well consult with an amoeba in a pond - right????? Or a dolphin, of the sort some atheists like to fantasize dropped humans off on this planet while floatingf through space. Or, spacemen...yes, spacemen...great alien spacemen...that just "happened" to build themselves from primordial soup. Oh, I see. (That is SARCASM.)
"The fear of God is THE START of WISDOM."
Are you feeling any nudge of a need for that YET?
Maybe not, but I hope so.
Are you aware at all that your very type, according to your very speech, and your type of chosen "argument" WERE PROPHESIED by Jehovah more thousands of years ago?
And here you are, pre-Armageddon, FULFILLING those prophesies outstandingly.
HOW IRONIC, isn't it - that you are fulfilling the prophesies of the God you DENY.
The same God, through his same book also has MORE prophesies yet to be fulfilled, regarding what is to become of both stubborn, unrepentant and un-turned around "godless ones" and stubborn, God-dishonoring and disobedient FALSE religionists. It is the same finale: Permanent death and destruction, with no hope of ever existing again, in any form, anywhere.
It is both "godless persons" as well as FALSE religionist that are MAJOR IMPEDMENTS to true world peace, is the end of poverty, etc. (Other elements are demon presence on this earth, and eco-system need to be healed, brought back to a well-working state. In reality, IT WILL TAKE GOD to remedy those problems as much as they need to be; and he has PROMISED that he will.)
IT WILL NOT BE BONO-ITE ATHEISTS, BONO-ITE FALSE "Christians", BONO-ITE SEXUAL PERVERTS, or BONO-ITE FALSELY-"INTELLECTUAL THEOSOPHISTS or WITCHES - or any other grandiose, God-disobeying humans - that will EVER TRULY "FIX" ANY OF THE MULTIPLE GLOBAL CRISES now threatening all of life on this planet. Like I said, should such persons even really keep a pet????? Or is too much time and concentration spent admiring themselves and fantasy-worlding it, perhaps walking through "Lucy in the Sky" foothills of the headlands, where they can truly be god of their own little world in their own little closed-box minds - for their choices????
Another REALITY matter. You have spoken as if you "KNOW" that the earth will be destroyed by nuclear bombs.
DESPITE your bold public teaching that it will be, and your suggesting that then those of true Christian faith will then join you in your dismal, future-hope TRUTH-DENYING cry of that "there is no god", you are, again, ENTIRELY WRONG.
Evidently, you KNOW NOTHING of scriptural TRUTH, and are merely being yet another of countless persons banking on exploiting the foilable teachings of Christendom (FALSE, whole Bible-truth DENYING "Christianity") AS AN EXCUSE TO DEFAME THE TRUE GOD AND HIS OWN TRUE TEACHINGS FROM HIS OWN WORDS.
The BIBLE TEACHES THAT THE EARTH - and even the "productive land" on it - WILL NEVER BE DESTROYED. Do you own a Bible? If so, you may want to try humbly cracking it open, rather than dwelling solely on common opinion/hearsay and false religious stories (man-and-demon-made fantasies/ philosophies, etc.)
Try fixing your designed eyes on the following verses, while acknowledging that you have a designed brain and body that allows you to open a book and read it (your also reading using a designed, physical-law following phenomena called LIGHT.)
This is Psalm 104:5. It is NOT well-taught in FALSE religions, which teach that good people just die and go to a heaven -
"He has founded the earth upon its established places;
It will not be made to totter to time indefinite, or forever."
This is Genesis 8:21,22, also known as "the rainbow promise", one made by God right after the Flood, in which he promises that even he will not destroy the productive land of the earth again, as he did with the Flood. (The Armageddon to come will destroy all God-disobedient/ anti-God persons, NOT the planet or its surface.)
"And Jehovah began to smell a restful odor, and so Jehovah said in his heart: “Never again shall I call down evil upon the ground on man’s account, because the inclination of the heart of man is bad from his youth up; and never again shall I deal every living thing a blow just as I have done. For all the days the earth continues, seed sowing and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night, will never cease.”
(There is also much more to verify these same thoughts, that this earth will last FOREVER, AND will remain INHABITED by God-grateful mankind. Psalm 37:9,11,29, ETC.)
Hopefully, after you lengthy writing of publically fighting against the Creator and Sovereign of the Universe, you have exercised some semblence of inborn fear-respect of what claims to be messages from God's words. Would that not be innately honest, fair, and naturally humble?
Have you noticed, too, that those who claim to be "godless" (or, stubbornly, of FALSE religions) again and again demonstrate DISHONESTY and INJUSTICE - overt unfairness - in their dealings and speech with others? Why is that so? God teaches in his words that such persons, for their DENIAL of his existence, also then tend towards feeling like they WILL NEVER BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS of injustice, slander, etc.
Indeed, the world is in the sorid, pathetic, and deadly-hostile state it is BECAUSE OF THE DENIAL OF AND DISOBEDIENCE TO DIVINE TRUTH and STANDARDS CARRIED ON BY BOTH "gODLESS" PERSONS and FALSE RELIGIONISTS TOGETHER.
That is why those with actual WISDOM, who KNOW, respect, and OBEY sriptural truth from the Creator himself carry on with doing as HE HAS SAID, and WARNING all such "godless" persons AND FALSE religionists that unless they quickly turn around and start humbly minding their proper place in this Universe - which is that of a CREATED BEING, ******NOT****** the Creator - he will soon, by JUSTICE, to TRULY SAVE THIS WORLD, END POVERTY, END SICKNESS, REVERSE POLLUTION, END INJUSTICE, and END ALL OF THE CORRUPTION THAT COMES FROM EXCUSELESS GOD-INSOLENCE, etc., DESTROY ALL SUCH PERSONS DEAD FOREVER, CLEARED OFF THIS PLANET FOR GOOD.
Then the HONEST-HEARTED, TRULY LOVING and PEACEFUL, truly RIGHTEOUSNESS LOVING persons of this earth can have our relief from the oppressive trouble that God-denying and disobedient persons haven't quit plaguing our world with for ages. (What would a person who can't even righty thank and submit to truth and goodness from their own Maker understand about REAL love at all anyway???????? Despite hollow words advertised by such person, the sum-total of history and the state of the world/ society clearly answers that: NOT MUCH.)
And you REALLY THINK men do not need to listen to a True, Higher Source of Wisdom????????
If so, for that, for the "belief" that we exist by "accident" (not by DESIGN, by a Designer, with PURPOSE IN MIND), etc., your "way" OFFERS NO HOPE.
If there is NO HOPE (based on what is as real as promises from the Maker himself), and NO accountabilty to Divine, certain Justice, .....following that through, I guess that leaves the rich and powerful with the best media and weapons to "rule" humanity and the planet, until it all goes dead, and/ or all persons become extinct.
But, that existentialism is its own fantasy.
So, really, do you think that claiming the mindset of "freedom" from moral laws, etc, stipulated by an existent God is WORTH then being logically forced to follow that thinking through to its end, which would be non-existence and hopelessness for anything better until then?
"For God’s wrath is being revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who are suppressing the truth in an unrighteous way, because what may be known about God is manifest among them, for God made it manifest to them. 20 For his invisible [qualities] are clearly seen from the world’s creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, SO THAT THEY ARE INEXCUSABLE; because, although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God nor did they thank him, but they became EMPTY-HEADED in their reasonings and their UNINTELLIGENT HEART became DARKENED. ALTHOUGH ASSERTING THEY WERE WISE, THEY BECAME FOOLISH and turned the glory of the incorruptible God into something like the image of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed creatures and creeping things.
Therefore God, in keeping with the desires of their hearts, gave them up to uncleanness, that their bodies might be dishonored among them, even those who exchanged the truth of God for the lie and venerated and rendered sacred service to the creation rather than the One who created, who is blessed forever. Amen. That is why God gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites, for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature; and likewise even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males, working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense, which was due for their error.
AND JUST AS THEY DID NOT APPROVE OF HOLDING GOD IN ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE, GOD GAVE THEM UP TO A DISAPPROVED MENTAL STATE, to do the things not fitting, 29 filled as they were with all unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, badness, being full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malicious disposition, being whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, INSOLENT, haughty, self-assuming, inventors of injurious things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, false to agreements, having no natural affection, merciless. Although these know full well the righteous decree of God, that those practicing such things are deserving of death, they not only keep on doing them but also consent with those practicing them." (Romans 1:18-32).
I hope for you and those who now trendily speak as you do can "come around", before it soon is too late.
That "Electricity's" Gone Sputtery / DEAD | Reviewer: theresa1 | 10/24/08
Songs that are tainted with or used to promote demonism (ESPECIALLY if they contains bits of Holy Scripture, paraphrases of them, or allusions to them); or whose originators now sing, speak or act IN TOTAL HYPOCRISY TO SUCH SONGS IS DEAD, DEAD MUSIC, and, as such CAN BECOME HEAVILY DESPICABLE to the ears of some with a rightful disdain for HYPOCRISY and/ or the exploitation and violation of intellectual property belonging to God for anti-God purposes. That is the case for this and a number of other U2 songs for me. To hear them now is aggravation.
APATHETIC, accept-all listeners, on the other hand, are mentally-spiritually VULNERABLE listeners - open to the demonic brainwashing that has been occurring with so-tainted and/ or subsequently exploited music for quite a long time now.
The there are those who have a hatred for scriptural truth, mainly because they do not want their own personal desires disciplined by commands, principles, and warnings from their Maker. So, for many such person, whether they are FALSE "Christians", agnostic homosexuals, or atheist fornicators, many of them have found audio-visual poster-boy heroes and life soundtrack stars/ inspirations in the current state of U2 and especially Bono's messages to the world. (Again, he/ they are now god/ gods to many.)
So, "anonymous" - wheresas your U2 advertisement here, "Savour the feeling of that electricity down your spine when you hear that favourite song of yours, or a potential future favourite" might get you kudos from the U2 org; what it says to me is: "Accept - do not protest - any concepts being mass-media promoted by Bono/ U2, especially those of a 'spiritual' nature."
Though that may be all it takes to "satisfy" you; there are others on this earth that are far more discerning about "spiritual advice" and require that "spiritual teachings" meet a STANDARD called TRUTH.
The God that you say does not exist (and so DO NOT KNOW) ALSO HAS A STANDARD FOR HUMANS for their rightful worship of him as Creator and Universal Sovereign, which requires that individuals worship him "with spirit and truth."
(John 4:24) It will be those who do that Jah will let live past his Day of Armageddon into his new world here. (Those of us left here will pet wild lions, etc. here THEN. To try to do so before then could well be putting God "to the test", as not even Jesus dared do by following Satan's temptation to endanger his life by hurling himself off a high wall of the temple - it would have been wrong. [Matthew 4:5-7])
Finally, is this really the sum total of your acquired wisdom thusfar?:
"I'd rather put Hitler in power"
That's NOT MUCH WISDOM, sir/madam.
I suggest that you leave off of Bonoisms and flipping-off pop-news headlines as if name-dropping.
I suggest that you begin seriously pondering the TRUTH regarding the track record of man's domination over man; that is has been one of continual FAILURE. It has been "injurious", just as God said it would be; and ALL of the experimental governments of men have been found to be DEFICIENT (just as the ancient world power of Babylon was pronounced to be in "the handwriting on the wall", the night of that city's great fall, in "MENE, MENE, TEKEL, PARSIN". Like Babylon, the "kingdoms" of men "have been weighed in the balances and have been found DEFICIENT." [See Daniel 5:5,24-28) And again, Jehovah will soon "crush and put an end" to all of the "kingdoms" of men - on his Day of Wrath. (See Daniel 2:44)(Then he will extend his own perfect, heaven-based government down from heaven to encompass the whole earth, setting so much right, at last.)
So, whereas you have brought in various bits of concern over this international-crisis and that governmental mess-up; trying to tie it all together to teach the public why, like you, shouldn't be concerned with the viewpoint and mandates of God Almighty - but simply ride out these rough waters of the pre-Armageddon storm by being apathetic or rebellious towards actual scriptural survival-guidance while passively listening to U2 music - I'm hoping that you and/ or others will realize that there is much more involved in a BIGGER PICTURE than what you have mistakenly made your focus and points of "argument."
One more bit, on TRANSIENT World Rulership | Reviewer: theresa1 | 10/21/08
I wouldn't be overly concerned, if I were you, either, on the tittle-tattle of the goings on of the world's political system, the players in it, etc.
If you were to actually examine God's words, with the humble-hearted attitude of an actual spiritual truth-seeker; you could discover the following.
Satan is the Ruler of the world political system. It is demon-manipulated, for the main purpose of slandering the true God and his purposes for earth and mankind. It is Satan's goal to get persons to put their hope in rulership by man, independent of God. He also exploits people's inborn spiritual needs and imperfections - to get them to put faith in SPIRITUAL LIES/ FALSE RELIGIONS.
Then, the Devil has had the world empire of all FALSE RELIGIONS adjoin to the world's political system and leaders of it - in spiritual ADULTERY.
Trust in that mass-brainwashing propaganda has ruined our world.
Altogether, and along with corrupt big businesses, those entities have formed a web of deception, tangled vines of bad grapes, over mankind, over the earth.
If you wish, you can read yourself that Jehovah an his Son are enraged at the injustice produced by all of this - with its resultant POVERTY, war, and other hurtful oppressions of mankind.
God is NOT weak, disinterested, indifferent to injustice, unaware, slow, inept, inactive, etc. Neither is his Son, UNLIKE U2 has asserted.
Instead, despite anything that godless persons or FALSE religionists hold as their opinions;
the TRUE GOD WILL SOON BE CRUSHING AND PUTTING AN END TO ALL OF THE - OBVIOUSLY - DEFICIENT "kingdoms" of men that now exist. (That is what Armageddon wil soon bring - an END to Satan's wicked world system and its anti-God supporters, NOT destruction of this planet. (Daniel 2:44; Ezekiel 38 and 39; Revelation 19:11-21; MORE.)
RIGHT BEFORE he does that though, he will cause the obliteration of Satan's world empire of all God-hated FALSE RELIGIONS. (Revelation 17 and 18)
So, you can follow empty, hopeless philosophies, or you can heed warnings of what will be carried out by God,quite soon, no matter what anyone has to say about it.
Life, Truth, and God aren't Confined to the BONO-Fan Bubble | Reviewer: theresa1 | 10/21/08
There's a bigger Universe and more important issues regarding necessary, life-saving truth than "what Bono says."
But, Bono has used MASS MEDIA to teach and reinforce deadly spiritual LIES, just like many televangelists have done, only, more effectively, it seems, because he has used the persuasive powers of pop music, sex appeal, and celebrity worship.
People have fooled you into believing that true religion and worship of God is all about so-called "love" - the nicey-nicey "no one insist on God's truth in the face of death-bringing LIES that slander him" kind of "love" that FALSE "Christianity" has brainwashed so many people to.
Think about that, please - those "nicey" persons that want to hide and smother GOD'S OWN DISCCIPLINING WORDS and WARNINGS - are the SAME ONES WHO HAVE brought about the TORTURE and MURDER of millions of persons over time. (So God will soon be avenging the blood of all those they are responsible for the slaughter of upon the heads of those still choosing to support those FALSE religions very soon.)
So why trust them. Why believe what they say about anything spiritual.
Your best hope to rightly please God and so live in his new world of righteousness here is to leave all of those lies of SPIRITISM and INJUSTICE BEHIND FOREVER, and start digging into God's own words more urgently than you've ever done anything before in your life - and follow through by OBEYING THEM.
Then, help warn people, just as TRUE Christians DO - for TRUE LOVE of God and obedience to him; and TRUE CHRISTIAN LOVE of neighbor. (Ezekiel 3:17-21)
