Naturally, this is an interesting thread for me considering I'm a JW... Want to reply at length but its 4am. Will def reply to this tomorrow night.

People laugh when I explain. And though they may laugh, that doesn't change the fact that it's still the truth.

The King James Bible originally contained Jehovah's name. Then they removed it, while adding a note at the front of the bible that they had altered the text by replacing 'Jehovah' with 'Lord' - Recently they have reverted back to putting Jehovah's name back into the KJV in their latest editions.

I use the NWT - and as a JW I also use the KJV to cross reference along many other bibles. In fact the JWs up until 1992 were printing the KJV on their own presses. We esteem the KJV. The NWT is simply translated in "New World" language,  not "Olde' English"

Any rivalry created between using the KJV over the NWT is not initiated by JWs, most often others who compare the two bibles. As a JW I hold the KJV in high regard as well as many other versions of the bible that have been translated into modern English so that it can be read, studied and understood. JW publications still quote from the KJV.

In fact comparing the same scripture in various bibles (cross examination) is a very good way to understand the context correctly.

Having said that, yes there are deliberate versions of the bible that have been changed to suit religion, which I won't name. The NWT however is not one of them.

JMO. Just my two cents. No intent to argue btw.

Oh', also I did post earlier on page 1 that I had some comments regarding the opening post of this thread. I have decided not to bother posting at length for various reasons, including that the opening poster is no longer with us, but also because I can't be bothered wasting my breath. Apologies for my bluntness.

The only thing I do want to say is that I'd like to clarify that this persons opinion is not reflective of Jehovah's Witnesses and this is completely their personal opinion. Also, Michael's personal beliefs, religious conviction, etc is something we can't comment on as we aren't in his head or heart. Therefore saying he would or wouldn't do something based on his religious / spiritual make up, is redundant and in addition assuming.


And finally - Yes he is a spiritual man. Yes a religious man. But MOST DEFINITELY a joker and an entertainer!!! It is possible to be both and being spiritual or religious does not cancel out the later.

Looking a Michael’s health, there is always the debate about how sick and how healthy he was. Well if we look at the fact #1 he had the Vitiligo, #2 He had Lupus. #3 He had inflammation of the joints and probable a couple of other symptoms that were brought on by the Lupus. Lupus is an incurable disease, people with a healthy diet can manage the symptoms but it never goes away and it can cause a lot of discomfort.  Michael wasn’t capable of giving the kinds of performances on stage that people would expect, and even under the best of circumstances, with his condition it would have been insane to thing he could have done that tour. But the forced bookings of 50 shows was the writing on the wall for him.  I just pray daily for him that where ever he is that he is living in peace as much as possible in the times that we live in. 

But now I have to ask the question. Why would Michael go to all this trouble to escape only to come back at some future time and say “ Oh guess what folks I was just kidding it was a joke, now lets have a great concert.”  Or I uncovered the bad guys now lets party”


Kinda pointless me replying because you are banned, but will quickly point out a few things in case you are still reading as a guest...


Regarding the points above that I have marked in 'Bold' - Your point is redundant, because even if he does have Lupus / arthritic / joint complications that would have made 50 shows impossible, it DOESN'T matter because he was never going to do the 50 shows. Nor the 10 for that matter. TII was never going to be. The announcement was the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning, whichever way you see it...

Also, who says the hoax is a joke? It's hardly a joke. Entertaining, yes. But not a joke in light of the pending Justice!

And who says MJ is going to come back and perform at a concert? KOP is gone.


All huge assumptions...
