Is This What God Purposed?

READ any newspaper. Look at television, or listen to the radio. There are so many stories of crime, war, and terrorism! Think about your own troubles. Perhaps illness or the death of a loved one is causing you great distress. Think for a moment about your own anxieties and troubles. They may include money matters, family problems, loss of health, or the death of a loved one. The Bible can help you deal with problems today, and it teaches that God will soon bring changes on the earth. What are these changes and can we believe them?

@TomTomBinks,
What it can do is help you understand God's will.

@BroRando,
Q: As a JW are you taking the soft option by attempting to preach on the internet ? Wouldn't you gain more celestial points by getting out there in elements, proselytising in the streets and knocking on doors ?
No pain - no gain !

It's not meant to prevent any of those things. Didn't you get the word? Death can be something to look forward to, not prevented.

@TomTomBinks,
It can't and it doesn't profess to, what it does is gives you guidance to improve quality of life in the world we live in, and a manifesto for the world to come.

I am not going to convince you that it is correct, but for those who hold to the bible, hope is a powerful thing, and there is sensible guidance on how to navigate the difficulties one faces in this life, some of which you will disagree with regardless If the bible is moot and I don't get any "reward" I have lived a happy existence, and am rather satisfied with the life I have gotten from being a believer.

you must try to follow the point.
ince I dont live in California any longer, Im not able to buy really large bags (like 25 pouners)

The market dwells on these damn small inconsistent volume bags. SOme bags are 2 oz, some bags are 64 grams, we have oz, 1/4 pound, a few 1/2 pound bags nd many grm bags.
CONSISTENCY IN PISTACHIO SALES. That shpould keep some god busy for a few centuries as he tries to understnd how marketing works.

@farmerman,
Leaving on a side trip to CA in 11 days. If I lived closer I'd pick you up a bag.
But Publix in FL sells them in bulk and you can weigh the bag yourself. I usually go for dry roasted cashews. Not enough will power for unlimited pistachios laying around.

@BroRando,
I believe the Society we live in today is Satan's doing. Just like a toilet that is backed up, it needs a desperate flushing.
