    Joyce,nothing has changed with people today.Look at the so called people of GOD in the LGBT group that profess GOD.(Leviticus18:22)"You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination." Here GOD has spoken and what is mankind still doing?GOD has the final word and his word shall never perish.Not the same for disobedience they perish daily in their sins.

    Jehovah God executed judgment against those who spoke against and disrespected his representatives. This shows that we should have respect for ones that Jehovah has placed in authority.

    I can't understand these people. After seeing so many signs and wonders they were still so disobedient and disrespectful. No respect for God's chosen servant
