Your Questions About Pass To Paradise

William asks…

Question for Muslim folks regarding etiquette after a death in the family?

My daughters boyfriends father just passed away. We are non-Muslim and I am totally in the dark as to whether it is appropriate to offer a dish for her to bring for the family and friends who are filing in by the numbers to his home to pay their respects.
I would be so appreciative of any one who can offer advice if the offering of food or another gesture is appropriate.

admin answers:

It is different from country to country, for us(arab countries) as i am a muslim, we only talk to them how sad we are, and we pray for him to enter paradise, and get mercy.

Did the WTS avoid spiritism, necromancy, and astrology? Read the article.

B. J. Kotwall

The Watchtower Society (WTS) advises against association with the occult, including spiritism, astrology, necromancy, mysticism and other similar beliefs and practices condemned in the Bible. (Deuteronomy 18:9-11)
For example:

The Flood forced the disobedient angels to dematerialize, and, now separated from Jehovah’s holy organization, they became an invisible demonic organization under Satan’s domination. (Ephesians 6:12) In order to control mankind, they use spiritism, necromancy, astrology and other occult devices. Although unable to take on human form again, they often possess humans, animals and inanimate things such as fetishes.
The Watchtower 1984 March 15, p. 28-29

Let’s examine whether the WTS has followed its own advice and avoided spiritism, necromancy, and astrology.

N e c r o m a n c y
Necromancy refers to divination through alleged communication with the dead.

After Charles Russell the first president of WTS died in 1916 the following was said about him keeping contact with the WTS:

This verse (Revelation 8:3) shows that, though Pastor Russell has passed beyond the veil, he is still managing every feature of the harvest work…We hold that he supervises, by the Lord’s arrangement, the work yet to be done.
The Finished Mystery 1917 pp. 144, 256

Hence our dear Pastor, now in glory, is without doubt, manifesting a keen interest in the harvest work, and is permitted by the Lord to exercise some strong influence thereupon.
Watch Tower 1917, November 1 p. 6161 [ WTS’s reprints]

The second president of the WTS Joseph Rutherford under whose aegis the above two statements were made, later contradicted them:

No one of the temple company would be so foolish as to conclude that some brother (or brethren) at one time amongst them, and who has died and gone to heaven, is now instructing the saints on earth and directing them as to their work.
Jehovah 1934 p. 191

However, in a complete flip-flop the WTS in 1989 reverted back to their necromantic belief:

It is fitting, then, that one of the 24 elders, representing anointed ones already in heaven, should stir John’s thinking…(Revelation 7:13, 14a) Yes, that elder could locate the answer and give it to John. This suggests that resurrected ones of the 24-elders group may be involved in the communicating of divine truths today.
Revelation – Its Grand climax At Hand! 1989 p. 125

S p i r i t i s m
Charles Russell believed that “A truth presented by Satan himself is just as true as a truth stated by God…Accept truth wherever you find it, no matter what it contradicts.” (Zion’s Watch Tower 1879 July pp. 8-9) In similar vein the WTS of today also uses any sources at their disposal to confirm their “truth”, notwithstanding that Russell’s statement is condemned in the Bible! (John 8:44)

Although rejecting spiritism the WTS repeatedly used the writings, of a known spiritist Johannes Greber, as a scholarly support for their beliefs. The WTS was aware of Greber’s spiritistic connections from 1955 but continued to use his works until 1987 (particularly to support their incorrect translation of John 1:1) while at the same time denying that they were aware of Greber’s spiritistic practices! (Investigator No. 24, May 1992.) After being exposed for the use of Greber’s works the WTS apparently stopped using him.

WTS has however found another spirit medium in one John S. Thompson to support their John 1:1 translation! He is listed as an authority in the WTS’s Kingdom Interlinear Translation 1985 p. 1139-1140. Research in Thompson’s book, The Monotessaron, or The Gospel History, According to the Four Evangelists (1829) shows that his inspiration and direction came from the spirit world!

D e m o n s
The WTS has always had a morbid fascination with the subjects of demons and Jehovah’s Witnesses (JW) have developed tremendous fear of demons and Satan. Russell used to write about spirit manifestations. (eg. Zion’s Watch Tower 1907 October 1 p. 4069 WTS reprints)

Recent Watchtower publications also have warnings and instructions on how to deal with demons and demonized objects, shunning omens and “voices”, rejecting modern “demonized” music, resisting wicked spirits etc. (The Watchtower 1974 June 1 p.328; 1983 October 15 pp. 11-15; 1963 March 15 pp. 186-190)

Jerry Bergman in his book Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Problem of Mental Health (1992) relates case histories showing how the WTS is seriously demon-oriented.

There have been numerous cases where a JW was perceived by the WTS elders to be demon-possessed. The elders then frequently take charge of the unfortunate situation and enter the house of the “possessed” JW and systematically start to destroy by burning whatever objects which they think are devil-related! This Shamanistic practice would result in the destruction of crosses, rosaries, pictures, b

Mary asks…

What level of responsibility does government hold for the demonisation of feminism?

Considering that it was your government that passed and magnified VAWA, EEO/AA and so on, allegedly for the benefit of women?

Were these things really done at the behest of normal feminists, of at the behest of only the radical fringe (brrr!). Are these laws, regulations and such really intended for the furtherance of women’s rights or are they false flags to trap feminism into mortal error?

Just a thought – what are yours? (Igor loves to switch the point of attack to those responsible!)

admin answers:

It’s actually OK. This is a necessary phase in the world domination of men. It is designed to increase the take up of the technology. This is achieved by making the purchase of an android to be a completely sensible and understandable idea. Feminists will attempt to ban it but by then peoplle will all think feminists are crazy. The process in a court will be that there is no way any trade ban could be imposed on the purchse of a machine just because of it’s shape. And then quote all the feminist dogma about getting rid of men. This product effectively solves every single problem feminism ever had because females will be treated utterly equal to men. The lower class of men who do not yet have the resources to purchase the technology today. The price a man has to pay plus risk in the future if he shacks up with a female far outways a one off up front cost. Unlike females she will never harm your child let alone kill him. She will have all the knowledge of human history to parent the boy in the best possible way. She will also be able to keep up with him physically as well as challenge him mentally. She will never say She wants to leave you and make you pay for it. She will never get tired. Never get sick, Never get old. Never have a headache. She will know the khama sutra as well as all of recorded history of every races different findings of sexual pleasure. The processor and energy resource pack are liquid cooled by keeping her outer body at around 38 degree centigrade. She will be able to do tricks with her fanny you will not believe and it will never stretch to the size of a cathedral entrance.
It sounds too good to be true but it is not.
As females are replaced they will not lift a finger to prevent it until it’s way to late. They will be sitting around moaning about men while we steadily go about making them redundant altogether. When the value of the vag plummets due to reducing demand we shall see how they go. There is no other course for them but to die out.
The biblical prophesy will come true. We will build a paradise on Earth and the incarnation of the devil will be cast out. The meek shall inherit the Earth.
Darwinian theory is also satisfied in that the strong survive and the weak perish so no more problem between the two philosophically.
And not only no more parasites but no more disease ever. At this stage you will be able to take an injection instead of sitting through a lecture. Your brain will be given the synapse trail of the memory you never had. You will remember the lecture better than if you sat through it. You have no idea how far we have come. It’s a brave new world and there is scant room for parasites.

Donald asks…

How long will we need to keep Obama in power to stop the rich?

Will we need to change the law to for President Obama to get his plans done and create a workers paradise?

admin answers:

Dude, who do you think provide the jobs for this workers paradise? These kind of questions crack me up. Even if Obama taxes the corporations they pass on that tax to the consumers. I read Obama’s tax plan and he is going to raise the tax on the middle-class as well. He is lying when he says not. I compared the Tax schedules from Reagan’s years and Clinton’s years and now under Bush. And guess what? We pay less now than under Reagan or Clinton. It is in the fine print of his plan. I did this because out of Obama’s own mouth I have heard him say „you will go back to what you paid under Reagan and no more than you did in the 1990’s“ Read his plan and get your calculator out. I challenge all of the Liberal Democrats and tax payers on here to do that. I suspect that the majority of questions like this are posed by people that do not pay taxes or who are really not part of the mainstream work force.

Richard asks…

Can anybody give good examples of conceits in Literature?

Possibly in Milton’s Paradise Lost? Otherwise whatever work.
It is difficult for me to „see“ the conceits.

admin answers:

A conceit is basically a very elaborate metaphor where the comparison is nothing like what its being compared to

e.g. In Wilfred Owen’s „Anthem For Doomed Youth“

„What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?
Only the monstrous anger of the guns.
Only the stuttering rifles‘ rapid rattle
Can patter out their hasty orisons.
No mockeries now for them; no prayers nor bells;
Nor any voice of mourning save the choirs, –
The shrill, demented choirs of wailing shells;
And bugles calling for them from sad shires.
What candles may be held to speed them all?
Not in the hands of boys but in their eyes
Shall shine the holy glimmers of goodbyes.
The pallor of girls‘ brows shall be their pall;
Their flowers the tenderness of patient minds,
And each slow dusk a drawing-down of blinds.“

the conceit is comparing the war to a traditional funeral in lines like
„Not in the hands of boys but in their eyes
Shall shine the holy glimmers of goodbyes.“

there’s another example of conceit in a John Donne poem where he compares his lover to the sun…. But i cant remember what it’s called. Hope that helps!
