As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Questions for Jehovah’s Witnesses

    1. How many true Gods exist?
    • John 17:3: “This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.” **
    2. Is Satan a true or false God? Do demons believe he is a god?
    • 2 Corinthians 4:4: “among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers…”
    • James 2:19:
      “You believe
      there is one God
      , do you? You are doing quite well. And yet the demons believe and shudder.

    3. So if demons don’t consider Satan is a real god, why is he called “the god” of this world? Wouldn’t you agree that these beings that are called “gods” are not really gods, but are rather false gods?
    • 1 Corinthians 8:5-6: “For even though there are those who are called ‘gods,’ whether in heaven or on earth, just as there are many ‘gods’ and many ‘lords,’ there is actually to us one God the Father … and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ…”
    • NOTE: Jehovah’s Witnesses claim to put Jesus in a neutral category of “god” beings that are merely divine, but are not the true God. By demonstrating that Satan is a false “god” because he is worshipped by false religion, and that even his followers, the demons, don’t believe he is a real “god,” this demonstrates that a neutral category of “divine/god” beings that are neither true nor false does not exist.

      4. Since there is only one true God, is Jesus the true God or is He a false god like Satan? How can a false god save anyone? Since there is only one God, why did Thomas call Jesus his God?
      • John 20:28: “…Thomas said to him: ‘My Lord and my God!’ ”

        5. Who is the Lord of Lords? Jehovah or Jesus?
        • Deuteronomy 10:17: “For Jehovah YOUR God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the God great, mighty and fear-inspiring…”
        • Revelation 17:14: “…the Lamb… is Lord of lords and King of kings, the Lamb will conquer them.”
        • Revelation 19:16: “And upon his outer garment, even upon his thigh, he has a name written, King of kings and Lord of lords.”
        6. Is Jesus Christ your ONLY Lord?
        • Jude 4: “proving false to our only Owner and Lord, Jesus Christ.”

          7. How many true Gods, true Lords, and true Spirits exist?
          • 1 Corinthians 12:4-6: “Now there are varieties of gifts, but there is the same spirit; and there are varieties of ministries, and yet there is the same Lord; and there are varieties of operations, and yet it is the same God who performs all the operations in all persons.”
          • Romans 8:9: “However, YOU are in harmony…with the spirit, if God’s spirit truly dwells in YOU. But if anyone does not have Christ’s spirit, this one does not belong to him.”
          8. Who is the “first and last”? Is there “a God” besides Him?
          • Isaiah 44:6-9: “This is what Jehovah has said, the King of Israel and the Repurchaser of him, Jehovah of armies, ‘I am the first and I am the last, and beside me there is no God. And who is there like me? …Does there exist a God besides me? No, there is no Rock. I have recognized none.”
          • Revelation 1:17: “And when I saw him, I fell as dead at his feet. And he laid his right hand upon me and said: ‘Do not be fearful. I am the First and the Last, and the living one,’ ”

            9. When did Jehovah God die? How many first and last Gods can there be?
            • Revelation 1:18: “ ‘and I became dead, but, look! I am living forever and ever.’ ”
            • Revelation 2:8: “…These are the things that he says, ‘the First and the Last,’ who became dead and came to life [again].”
            10. If no one has ever seen God (John 1:18), why did Isaiah say he saw Jehovah (Isaiah 6:1)?
            • John 1:18: “No man has seen God at any time; the only-begotten god who is in the bosom [position] with the Father is the one that has explained him.”
            • μονογενής (monogenēs) = “only-begotten, unique, one of its special kind”—The New Englishman’s Greek Concordance and Lexicon, p. 579
            • Isaiah 6:1: “…I, however, got to see Jehovah …And I proceeded to say: ‘Woe to me! …for my eyes have seen the King, Jehovah of armies, himself!’ ”
            11. According to John, who is the Jehovah whom Isaiah saw? What cross-reference footnote is linked to verse 41 of John 12?
            • John 12:36-42: “Jesus spoke these things… But although he had performed so many signs before them, they were not putting faith in him… The reason why they were not able to believe is that again Isaiah said: ‘He has blinded their eyes…’ Isaiah said these things because he saw his glory,* and he spoke about him. All the same, many even of the rulers actually put faith in him…”
            • NWT Cross Reference footnote at verse 41 is Isa. 6:1

              12. Can you see why Jesus is the image of the invisible Jehovah?
              • Colossians 1:15:“And He is the image of the invisible God…”
              • John 14:9: “…He that has seen me has seen the Father [also]. How is it you say, ‘Show us the Father’?”
              13. Colossians 1:15 calls Jesus the “first born” of creation. Did creation parent Jesus? Verse 18 says Jesus is the “first born” from the dead. Was Jesus the first one raised from death? Which meaning of “firstborn” best fits the context: “first birth of” or “preeminent position over” creation and death?
              • πρωτότοκος (prōtotokos) = “firstborn” …is used of Christ …expressing His priority to, and preeminence over, creation, not in the sense of being the ‘first’ to be born.”—Vine’s Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words, p. 240
              • Colossians 1:15-18: “He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; because by means of him all [other] things were created in the heavens and upon the earth…he is before all [other] things…he is the head… He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that he might become the one who is first in all things.”
              • NOTE: The NWT places the word “other” in brackets because it is not in the Greek text.
              • At Revelation 3:14, Jesus is called the “beginning” because He is the “Beginner” just as Jehovah is the “beginning” (Rev. 21:6, 22:13).

                Jehova Witness: baptizing of the dead
                Not into witnessing their way you are out of their church
                Law says that you have be registered thirty days prior to your 18th birthday and they believe you shouldn't join
                Suppose to be Single Adult Minded and are family minded instead
                Jehova-Jirah
                Yes
                The Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit(3 in One)
                The Alpha and Omega
                There can only be one true God and King. Jesus Christ was thirty three when He gave up the Holy Ghost
                Isaiah was a wee little and an wee little man was hehe closed up an sycamore tree to see Him/Jesus Christ was in the bosom of Mary
                Once saved always saved
                There is only one true Creator of both Heaven and of Earth and there is His Son Jesus Christ
                There are many braving images concidered God
                Jesus Christ is the one and true Savior
                Satan is demonic
                We are all considered the antichrist until the actual one comes out to play
