Comments

  • What if you in the past have found no satisfactory answers to the questions: ‘Why am I here? Where am I going? What is life all about?’ The Bible recommends that you get to know Jehovah closely. In fact, Jesus said: “This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.” You are also encouraged to develop godly qualities, particularly love, and to make it your personal goal to live under God’s incoming Messianic Kingdom. You will then have a purpose in life and a wonderful, secure hope for the future. John 17:3; Ecclesiastes 12:13.

    The pallid, dying hand of the JayDub

    Throws a rock hoping to break a window in the House of God

    Flinging in a hook hidden in false promises of Paradise

    Drawing souls from the ark of safety tp drown in the murky dark waters of the Watchtower.

    They fail.
