Who is your God?

MANY NEW ADDITIONS (scriptures, and clarifications)

SOME QUESTIONS I received:

Hi. Greetings from Philippines, am happy to have found this site, I hope that my questions about faith -in God and his teachings - will be answered.Below are the said questions.

1) If there is a conflict between the Bible and the watchtower reading material - which of the two are we going to follow or obey?

2) Is the 144,000 in Revelation referred to the Jews only or gentiles - it appears that the said group is only Jews?

3) There are many revisions of the New world translation - if I have the older version of it, is it still a correct version?

4) What is the name of God - is it Jehovah or another? ( I learned that God's name is composed only of letters )

5) Is Jehovah's witness church - the only church God will accept?

6) Do you believe that the Bible is the word of God - all of it - or contain only portion of God's word?
Thank you for taking the time in reading my message, kindly answer it any way you want - simple answer will do.,one that a layman can easily understand.
note: do you have a bible correspondence course for those who want to study about your faith via e-mail? thanks.
God bless!
Respectfully yours,
Ram

My Reply:

Hello Ram,
Thank you for writing to me.
I'll get right to your questions. Thank you for stating them clearly.
Since you have numerous questions, and each deserves many scriptures and comments, I hope you don't mind that I will include links to articles which discuss each topic in greater depth. Please do not skim over any scriptures. I know there are a lot of them. Perhaps you can do one question for each study session.

1) If there is a conflict between the Bible and the watchtower reading material - which of the two are we going to follow or obey?

I cannot speak for you or for others, because as individuals, we each must make this decision.
It is a vital question, which unfortunately, millions of "Jehovah's Witnesses" do not even recognize as a vital issue before them. They make the false assumption, that to do one, is to do the other... just as the Jews of the first century assumed that following the false religious leaders meant having God's approval. It didn't (Matt.15:14,8; Luke12:1; Matt.23).
("Should We Obey Men?")
Even the directives Jesus gave others, was not sourced in his own initiative (John5:30; 8:16). He spoke only what God told him (John12:49). Genuine ambassadors of Christ imitate this (1Pet.2:21; 2Cor.5:20), teaching only what spirit directs (Matt.10:20) and backing everything up by means of the source of their teaching... the scriptures.
("Who are the Fine Trees?")
The Bible itself contrasts between following God's Word, or man's (Rom.3:4; Mark7:7).
God has told us within His Word, how He symbolizes this contrast.
To have one's heart directed by God's Word, is symbolized by a mark on your forehead (thinking)
and a mark on your hands (deeds) [See Deut.6:6,8; 11:18].
When our heart is directed by men in power, the same symbols are used [See Rev.13:16,8,7).
("Mark of the Beast")

Whoever we obey, is our Master (Rom.6:16; 1Cor.7:23; Gal.1:10). Jesus said that we cannot serve two masters (Matt.6:24). We obey one, or the other, If a spiritual leader directs by means of God's Word, we are obeying God's Word through them, not the leader themselves (Heb.13:7; 2Cor.13:3; 1John4:1; Matt.24:24-25).
  Yet "Jehovah's Witnesses" are blatant about their obeying those whom they have dubbed, "The faithful and discreet slave", even without continually testing these men according to God's standards found within scripture. That "testing" becomes vital, in the time of the end
(1John4:1; Col.2:8,23; Rev.13:10,7; 2Cor.11:20,13-15,3-4; 1Tim.4:1; Rev.16:13-16; 1Cor.10:12; Matt.7:20; 24:4,5,24,25; 1Tim.6:20; 2Cor.13:5).
  Any within that organization who profess that they must obey God and His Word, (when there is a conflict between scripture and doctrine), are promptly thrown out. "Unity under one whip" is the Law. I and thousands of others are living proof of this policy. Under it, how can Christ's priests, obey Christ (John14:26; Matt.10:20,27; 28:20; Acts1:8)?
In doing these things, such shepherds (Jer.23:1; 12:10; Acts20:29; Micah3:1,2,3,11,12; John10:1,2,11,12; 2Pet.2:3) and the unfaithful anointed leaders above them, overstep their divine authority, by usurping Christ's headship over his own body/bride (Eph.5:23; 1Cor.12:27-29)
(1Pet.5:3; 2Cor.1:24; Phil.2:3; Rom.2:6; Matt.25:44,45; 18:5,6; Rev.18:21; Jer.51:7; Isa.1:21); all for which there will be consequences.
Jesus did not submit to such a system (Matt.10:34,35,36,37,38,39; Luke12:51; John7:43). He exposed and defied it (Rev.6:4; Dan.9:26; Luke19:43; Rev.17:14; 12:7,10,11) by a persistent teaching of truth, regardless of the personal cost
(John8:40; Matt.16:21; Rom.6:5; Heb.13:13; John16:2; Mark13:13; 8:34,35,36,37,38; Rev.6:9,11; 11:3,7; 20:4).

The abusive religious system in covenant with God, (that was fulfilled and ended in the first century -Heb.8:13; Matt.5:17; 21:43; John4:21,23) is also prophesied to arise at the end of the present covenant (Rev.13:15,7; 11:7; 6:9).
("End of the New Covenant")
When a Chosen One today, takes a loyal stand for truth, in imitation of Christ, they also are expelled (LINK)(LINK)(LINK)
[John16:2; 12:42; Matt.10:32; Rev.6:9,11; 11:7,9 (Ps.79:2,3; Rev.11:8; Heb.13:12,13); Rev.13:15,17].
("What do 'Buying' and 'Selling' Mean?")
This fulfills many prophecies which relate the details of this foretold "trampling" of the Holy Ones in the time of the end
(John16:2; Mark13:13; Dan.8:10,11,12,13; Luke21:24; Rev.13:10; 11:2).
(LINK)(LINK)
("Getting 'Killed'")

John the baptist prepared the way before Christ (John1:23), through a baptism of repentance. God's Nation had been lead astray by it's leadership. (Mark1:3,4,5; Luke3:7,8,9) (Matt.23:33,37-38; 21:43; 15:14). Jesus claimed that the Jewish nation was guilty of having ears and eyes that were blind and deaf to God's basic healing truths, due to a preoccupation with the doctrines of men (Matt.13:13,14,15; Isa.6:10; Mark7:13).
  This condition has also befallen God's Chosen people within the "Watchtower" organization today. Interestingly, these things were prophesied within God's Word as due to happen in the time of the end (1Tim.4:1; 2Thess.2:1-4,8; Rev.13:11,8,7). Symbolic prophecies tell us to expect God's Temple priesthood to be trampled by "Gentiles", and taken into "captivity"
(Col.2:8; Rev.13:10,7; Luke21:24; Dan.8:13; Rev.11:2; Eph.5:6; Gal.4:3; Col.2:20; 1Tim.6:20; 2Cor.11:3,4,20,13; Rev.2:2)
(2Thess.2:4; Dan.11:36,31,32,33,34,35; Matt.24:15,16; Rev.11:2).
("The Disgusting Thing Standing in a Holy Place")

And so you see, the first question you ask, is actually a matter of salvation.
It is a matter of life and death to discern which we are serving as slave (Rom.6:16)...God, ...or men?
Prophecy indicates that "all the earth" will follow the Wild Beasts with admiration (Rev.13:1,3-4,11-12,8,15; 19:20), allowing themselves to worship it's Image/Idol, by obeying all it's Laws (Rev.13:16). (Remember what that symbolism means, according to Deut.11:18).
(Rev.13:16-18 LINK LINK LINK)
These slaves of the Beasts will come to include the Holy Ones (Rev.13:7,10).
Only those who "wake up" (Rev.3:2; Matt.25:6,7)
and "keep awake" and on guard according to God's Word (including it's prophecies),
have any hope of escaping this final Great Test (Luke21:36,35; Matt.24:22; Luke13:23,24; Matt.7:13,14,21,22,23; 25:11,12,13; Matt.7:24; Ps.119:133).
("Two Wild Beasts of Revelation 13")
("'Wormwood' / False Prophet./ Armageddon")
("Jezebel") (Rev.2:20; 13:15,8)
- - - - - - - - - - - -

2.) Is the 144,000 in Revelation referred to the Jews only or gentiles - it appears that the said group is only Jews?

The Greek of Rev.1:1 ("He signified" "esEmanen"/root-"sémainó") makes clear that the entire scroll to follow is symbolic ("presented in signs"/"signified"), in accord with the way Jesus always taught (Matt.13:34,10,11) and made things known (Mark4:34).

Who then, are symbolic "Jews"? (Rom.2:28,29; Gal.3:29,28)
Please consider:
("Jew or Gentile?")

3) There are many revisions of the New world translation - if I have the older version of it, is it still a correct version?

I see your point. Genuine darkness does not become light. Neither does genuine light become darkness (Luke11:35,34,36). God's light does not vary at all (James1:17). Neither do the scriptures (Isa.40:8; Num.23:19).
As I continue to learn by spirit, I am astounded at the errors of translation found in the "Watchtower's" "Bible". What shocks me further, is the impact these mis-translations have on the beliefs and practices of those who follow them. I will give you two examples...
Eze.44:6-9 reads in every other Bible, (as well as is obvious in the Hebrew interlinear)...

"6 Say to rebellious Israel, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: Enough of your detestable practices, people of Israel! 7 In addition to all your other detestable practices, you brought foreigners uncircumcised in heart and flesh into my sanctuary, desecrating my temple while you offered me food, fat and blood, and you broke my covenant. 8 Instead of carrying out your duty in regard to my holy things, YOU put others in charge of my sanctuary. 9 This is what the Sovereign Lord says: No foreigner uncircumcised in heart and flesh is to enter my sanctuary, not even the foreigners who live among the Israelites."

Now it becomes obvious from the context here, that the great sin of Israel's priests, is that they appointed the "uncircumcised" in charge of the Temple Sanctuary. These are Gentiles/"foreigners".
  We know from Rom.2:28,29, [and the scriptures contained in the link above ("Jew"/"Gentile"), that those with a circumcision of the heart are those in covenant with God. Those "circumcised"/covenant priests today, would be the Chosen Anointed. - Col.2:11,12; Eph.2:6]
Instead of the priests tending to God's Temple, we see that those in power appointed Gentiles
(UN-circumcised in heart), as priests instead
(2Chron.13:9; Matt.24:15; Dan.9:27).

Now let's look at how the "Watchtower's" Bible translates Eze.44:6-9...

"And you must say to Rebelliousness, to the house of Israel, "This is what the sovereign Lord Jehovah has said, "That is enough of you because of all your detestable things, O house of Israel, when you bring in the foreigners uncircumcised in heart and uncircumcised in flesh, in order to come to be in my sanctuary so as to profane it, even my house, when you present my bread, fat and blood, while they keep breaking my covenant on account of all your detestable things. Neither have you taken care of the obligation of my holy things, nor would you post [others] as caretakers of my obligation in my sanctuary for yourselves. This is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah has said: "No foreigner, uncircumcised in heart and uncircumcised in flesh, may come into my sanctuary, that is, any foreigner who is in the midst of the sons of Israel."

Did you detect the discrepancy?

The original Hebrew tells us (and the first translation, above) that the Israelite priests gave the offering of sacrifices (presentation of bread, fat and blood) over to Gentiles, and in this way, they profaned the sanctuary and broke God's covenant with His consecrated priests (Ex.40:15; Num.25:13; 2Chron.23:6; Rev.5:9,10) (Mal.2:8; Neh.13:29; Dan.11:28,29,30,31,32,36,45; 2Thess.2:4; Matt.24:15; Rev.11:2).
  But now the second translation above from the "Watchtower's" Bible, asserts that the service of the Temple priests was completely abandoned, not being performed by anyone.
That concept contradicts their own translation of verse 7, which states that the offerings are being presented, by "they" who "keep breaking my covenant" of the priesthood. Who are "they"?
Well, the authentic priests would not be breaking the covenant by offering the sacrifices. But the Gentiles that they sent into the sanctuary to perform priestly duties; certainly would (2Chron.13:9; Mark13:14).
("The Disgusting Thing Standing in a Holy Place")
The "Watchtower" leaders erroneously believe that if a spiritual Gentile meets the "qualifications" set out at Titus1:5-9; this makes him a spiritual "Jew", and qualified to replace God's Chosen priests (2Chron.13:9; Rev.3:9; 2Cor.11:12). When the Genuine but fallen priestly WT leaders,
sanction and empower Gentiles to take over the Temple of God (Dan.11:31);
...this fulfills Rev.9:1,2,3,7 ; 2Thess.2:4 ; Dan.8:24 ;
and the collective Gentile Beast that is empowered by the False Prophet (Rev.13:15; 19:20)
to dominate and trample the Holy Ones/rightful priests
(trample-how-does-it-happen?)
(the-greatest-tribulation-what-and-why).
  Their mis-translation of Eze.44:8 takes the focus off the true abomination of Gentile priests inside the Temple (Num.18:7); and places the emphasis of the sin, on a neglecting of Temple duties.
This nullifies the true message behind Eze.44:6-9.

Can you discern from this discrepancy that the "Watchtower's" Bible allows Gentiles to take over the priesthood, so long as someone is on duty? It is ever so relevant that this is the only Bible that obscures an accurate interpretation of this verse.
Without this twisting of scripture, the Gentiles would not have been sanctioned to trample the Temple, just as prophecy predicts that they would.
Today within the Congregations of "Jehovah's Witnesses", non-anointed (Gentile) "elders" have taken over the priestly duties of God's chosen and consecrated priests. They preside over judicial matters of sin, which is only for anointed priests to do  (Num.16:47; 15:28; Rev.8:4) (Matt.16:19; John20:22,23; 1Cor.6:1,2,3; Gal.6:1; Rom.8:14,16) because as God's Chosen priests, they have been given the "keys" (authority to open or close understanding/life) to the Kingdom (Matt.16:19; John20:23,22; 7:38; 15:16; Luke6:44,45; John7:38; Rev.22:1,2). The Kingdom is accessed, through knowledge of truth, which those who have the "keys", possess (Matt.13:11; Luke8:10). They can open or shut the knowledge they have, among those they forgive or do not forgive (Luke24:32,45; Rev.11:6; 4:1; 20:12) (Matt.10:13,14,15; Mark6:11; Luke10:11; John13:20; Luke10:16; Matt.18:18)
(Matt.7:6; Prov.23:9; 9:8).
"Gentile" "elders" have not been given this authority ("keys") to forgive sins (nor to grant forgiveness from death and give the waters of life/truth), nor to condemn God's Chosen ones (Rom.8:33,34; 2:29; Isa.54:17) (Luke21:15; Ex.4:12; 12:11,12), nor anyone else.
The policies of the governing body brazenly direct the condemnation of any not subservient to them, and they conduct this condemnation through the "Gentile" "elders" (1Cor.6:1,2,3,4,5,8; Jer.6:15; 5:24; 3:3; Eze.16:30,2; 1John3:12; John13:34). Those leaders do not obey the scriptures, but rather, dispense their henchmen (Matt.18:15; Isa.50:8; Rev.13:11,15; 11:7; 17:6; 18:24; Matt.23:35,36,37,38; Isa.1:21) (Mark8:35; Rev.6:9,11).
Even Gal.6:1 has also been twisted within the WT Bible. It reads, "those with spiritual qualifications", which when erroneously coupled with Titus1:5-9; grants the Gentiles power to "readjust" a sinner. This is an "abomination" in God's eyes. When that abomination of Gentile priests (2Chron.13:9; 1Kings12:31; Eze.44:6,8; 1Cor.10:6,11), slays God's genuine priests, that abomination "causes desolation" (Matt.24:15,16; Dan.8:24,25; 11:31,32; Mark13:14).
Literally, Gal.6:1 accurately reads, "those who walk/live by spirit".
Rom.8:14 define these ones, as God's Sons/genuine priests.
(1Cor.2:12; Rom.8:15; 1John2:27)
That harmonizes with Ps.82:6, which brings us to our second example...
- - - -

The second example, is John10:35
which reads;
"If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came".

Yet the "Watchtower" has translated this as saying;
"If he called 'gods' against whom the word of God came".

Obviously, these two interpretations have opposite meanings.
I offer for your consideration, the Greek word "pros" ("unto"),
which is translated as,
and interpreted by myself, as meaning a "delivering" of God's Word to the 'gods'.
The "Watchtower" Bible has translated the meaning as "against",
as if these 'gods' stand condemned by God's Word against them.
Yet the "Watchtower's" own Greek interlinear does not contain that in the Greek writing.

Here is what can be found at: http://biblehub.com/greek/4314.htm
4314 prós (a preposition) – properly, motion towards to "interface with" (literally, moving toward a goal or destination).
4314 /prós ("towards, with") indicates "extension toward a goal, with implied interaction or reciprocity (L & N, 1, 84.18), with "presumed contact and reaction" (L & N, 1, 84.23). 4314 (prós) naturally suggests the cycle of initiation and response (L-N, 1,90.25, 90.33).
[4314 (prós) can mean "in view of," or "in light of, but never "against".
("Who are the 'gods'?")

Why does this matter?
Because this verse is speaking once again, of God's Sons.
 Psalm 82:6 reads...
"I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High."
In harmony, these are the "gods" "to whom the word of God came", just as Jesus, there said
(Mal.2:7; 1Cor.2:12,13; 4:1; 1John2:20,27; Luke8:10; Rev.1:6; John15:4,5,15,16,8)
(Ps.119:105; Matt.5:14,16).
But in order to sanction the Gentiles to subvert the Temple's "gods"/priests (2Thess.2:4);
their distinction as Holy Ones had to be obscured and nullified, and their divine authority, power, and nature, (Luke10:19; Rev.9:10,4) "brought to nothing" in the eyes of the Gentiles...
Dan.12:7 reads;
"And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the stream; he raised his right hand and his left hand toward heaven and swore by him who lives forever that it would be for a time, times, and half a time, and that when the shattering of the power of the holy people comes to completion all these things would be finished."
(See also Dan.8:13; 7:25; Rev.11:7,8,9,10; 6:9,10,11)

If the "Watchtower" Bible had kept the integrity of John10:35 ;
elders among "Jehovah's Witnesses" may have thought twice before condemning the least of Christ's brothers (Rom.8:33; Matt.25:40,44,45,46) by consigning them to a judgment of "irreversible spiritual death" through the disfellowshipping judgment of apostasy
(John16:2; Isa.66:5; Matt.10:22; Heb.13:13; Rev.6:9,11; 13:11,15)...
...simply because they disagree with the teachings of the wicked steward, and stand up to defend the truth (Eph.5:8,9,10,11; 4:25; Matt.10:32) just as Jesus set them the example.
The elders are blind to the fact that those whom they condemn, are those to whom the "light" of God's Word has been given
(John10:35; 1Pet.2:9,10; 1Cor.4:1,2; Luke1:1,2; Matt.25:14; John17:8; Matt.28:19,20)
Who are the "Mentally Diseased"?
"Persecution"
Those who obey and follow these counterfeit priest "elders"/collective "beast" as their master, are not written in the Lamb's scroll of life (Rev.13:8; 20:15).
Those who obey God as Master (Acts 5:29), will instead be sealed as His slaves (Rom.6:16; Rev.7:3; 14:1; 22:4,3).

By means of these two examples of many, I hope you can appreciate as I do, what Satan is able to promote by means of his own twist on the scriptures (Gen.3:1; Matt.4:6)....
which power of deception (key to abyss) he gives to the "fallen star"/false prophet (Rev.8:10,11; 9:1,11; 13:11; 16:13; 1Tim.4:1) and it's "Bible".
("The Fallen Star")

4) What is the name of God - is it Jehovah or another? ( I learned that God's name is composed only of letters )

By "only letters", what is meant, is only consonants. The original language, in which God's name was written, had no vowels. Translated into English, those letters (consonants) are YHWH.
  The name "Jehovah" is constructed by men, through a blend of the original consonants, mixed with the vowels from the Hebrew word used as a substitute for God's name...."eloah" -"Lord") (English pronunciation: Elohim).
Those vowels, are E L O A H.
When combined with the consonants the Bible gives us,
men constructed  J-(Y) E H O V-(W) A H.
As you can see, the liberty of changing Y to J, and W to V, was also taken.

Does all this mean that "Jehovah" is God's name?
No... which is freely admitted by the leaders of the "Watchtower". They don't think this matters, as much as saying and using the name, because they have a literal interpretation of Rom.10:13. They ignore the requirement (Ps.145:18) and the real relevance of what it means to call on that name.
"Calling on the Name of God"

Is the use of "Jehovah" a big deal? Well, it very well may prove to be.
The Hebrew meaning of "Jehovah" refers to one who despoils/destroys (associated with Hebrew the word "hovah", meaning violence and evil),
and this is a scriptural designation of Satan
(Heb.2:14; John10:10; John8:44; Rev.9:11; Heb.11:28; Isa.33:1).
I find this ignorance, ironically appropriate among "Jehovah's Witnesses"
(Rev.9:11; 2Thess.2:9,10,11,12; Isa.5:20; Jer.23:15; 9:15; Rev.8:10,11; 12:15,16).
("Earth Swallows Satan's River")

Here is more information about God's name:

5) Is Jehovah's witness church - the only church God will accept?

I have written extensively on this subject, and there are many scriptures to teach us about where salvation is found. God has made this clear by providing many details, to make certain that loyal lovers of His Word will be guided with clarity. This provision of discernment is merciful, in light of all the prophesied false prophets that would exist during the time of final test. Please graciously allow me to refer you to those writings...
("Where is the True Religion?")
("YHWH's Genuine Mountain")

It was prophesied that there would be a religious power claiming to have a monopoly on salvation (Rev.13:15,16,17; Isa.47:8; Rev.18:7).
If we use the words of Christ, which warn us in detail how we can recognize the true from the false, we will be kept safe (Matt.7:24,15,20; Rev.2:29).
("Who are the Fine Trees?")

Those who exclusively use scripture to interpret Revelation, realize that the design of the "Watchtower" Organization (unfaithful anointed leaders/steward, who wields control over a mountain/Beast, of Gentiles) is the manifestation of prophecy which has been expressed in a variety of apocalyptic parables.
Rather than it being the only path of salvation;
it is the only apparition specifically manifested as irrevocably condemned (Rev.20:10,14) along with it's followers (Rev.13:8; 20:15; 14:9,10; Eze.14:10).

6) Do you believe that the Bible is the word of God - all of it - or contain only portion of God's word?

The scripture itself answers:
"All Scripture is God-breathed/(inspired) and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." (2Tim.3:16,17)

Hopefully you will discern from my work, that I strive to make the Bible, the basis for all I teach.
John3:34 reads;
"For the one whom God has sent speaks the words of God, for God gives the Spirit without limit."
(also Luke11:13 and John14:26)

John8:47 A, reads;
"Whoever belongs to God, hears what God says."

In fact, this listening to and speaking from God's Word,
are the touchstones that aid us in distinguishing a true from a false prophet...

"16 Jesus answered, “My teaching is not my own. It comes from the one who sent me. 17 Anyone who chooses to do the will of God will find out whether my teaching comes from God or whether I speak on my own. 18 Whoever speaks on their own does so to gain personal glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him."
(John7:16-18)
(LINK)

"But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.  He will glorify me because it is from me that he will receive what he will make known to you.  All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.” (John16:13-15) (see John15:15)
- - - - - - -
There is a great deal of meaning in those two quoted scriptures, all of which points to the fulfillment of prophecy. It is my hope that you can glean the point at hand, which is that those who truly are sent from God, seek the glory of God, by speaking from His Word exclusively (never from their own originality), by referring to the words of Christ (John14:26) and God... the scriptures (2Tim.3:16).
A messenger of God cannot work in this way, if they do not have faith that the Bible is the genuine and supreme Word of God.

When Jesus said, "All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will receive from me what he will make known to you.";
This is a parallel to Rev.1:1; 5:7; John15:15; Rev.22:6; John16:13.

I know I have given you much information. But in truth, your questions deserve this and more, to be answered properly. If you have any trouble understanding it, please follow up. You can also send me a message through the contact form on the Main Page.

Regarding a "Bible course"; Jesus gave a command to his chosen ones (John 15:16,5,19; 1Pet.1:15; Rev.17:14; 5:9-10; Mal.2:7), at Matt.28:19-20. As a result; I am writing a Baptism course, to teach the commands of Christ. The first lesson, is located at this link: (LINK). Subsequent lessons are linked at the conclusion of each lesson.
Also, my Blog here is freely available to anyone interested. The contact form is there for any questions that arise.
There are also articles in my profile.
"Jehovah's Witnesses" also are famous for their structured Bible course. I do not recommend taking it, for reasons that will become more obvious to you as you read the links above.

Thank you for your interest, and I hope my efforts prove satisfactory.
If there is any other way I might serve you, please let me know.
Love in Christ,
Pearl
