What says the Bible: on Difficult Subjects?

Was Jerusalem Destroyed in 607? by Kent             



I talked to an Assyriologist at the British museum, by the name of Paul Collins. I asked him when he thought Jerusalem’s First Destruction was 607 BC or 587 BC. He said I can send you a document by email that shows the obvious year of Jerusalem’s First Destruction, as 587/586 BC. He did so and i printed it out. This document has been written by Christopher Walker, the former Deputy Keeper of the Department of the Ancient Near East at the British Museum and was revised October – November 2008. I put it in here for you to read. You will find the document if you scroll down on this page. http://www.587or607.com




Revelation 20:

10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Hint: When did the book of life open? Today or after the thousand years? 


Some of us have been told that if we leave an organization or do not believe certain doctrines,  or sin by leaving  after having "the truth"it will result in our going into second death.

This is an interesting talk on that subject for you to decide from scripture. Bob Carnegie a brother from the Bible students movement gives his perspective.  He's a good man just trying to give us some things to think about. Enjoy and Thank you

    Marjo, I too realize now how uninformed I was on what it really meant to be about Christ Jesus. These “so-called worldly people” had more knowledge about Christ and his redeeming us than any governing body members, me or the watchtower.
    We were always studying a book or watchtower or referencing a watchtower for my entire 70 years of life. We had the governing body and before that the faithful servant or slave, everybody but Christ Jesus first. Wow, what a ride we have been on.
    I have nothing against books so that is why I am going to do the 66 and some other holy writings I know about before studying whole volumes written by men.
    Last night I went to sleep listening to Acts and realized as clear understanding was coming in my mind, that I needed to stop and check out these first few verses carefully. It is so much contained in the Bible that you don’t really need books, Holy Spirit helps you. An individual relationship with God is what we never had only an organization or book relationship.

    Response to Bro. Ted:
    These are all interesting observations and questions.
    As you know from our Thursday night meeting, as students of the Bible we MUST take EXTREME CARE not to answer or form opinions about questions like these without Scriptural support.
    I totally understand your situation (better than anyone else you know), so I’d like to ask your permission to use your post as a topic of discussion for our Thursday night meeting on 11/29 (I’m assuming our group will vote to NOT have a meeting on 11/22)
    will give our group a chance to prepare, instead of just springing these questions on them.

    Also, every question humans can come up with MAY not have Scriptural answers.
    What should that mean to us, if we cannot find Scriptural answers to our question?
