    Sandra, the reason Watch Tower doesn't make sense it's because it's false doctrine. Read your KJV bible, not a translation such as the NKJV or any other bible.
  • Mild Bill
    Sandra,God has easily put the sun and the stars in heaven, and so, he has put his word in your hands. Only he can put his word in your heart, where your soul can feed unto life. My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.Jesus is God.
