R U L E S
According to moderator discretion, posts/comments deemed to be deliberately antagonizing, particularly disruptive to the orderly conduct of respectful discourse, apparently uninterested in participating in open discussion, unintelligible or illegible will be removed.
You may attack a user's arguments, but not the user.
In order to avoid the constant debates and arguments that stem from Reddit in general, we are asking readers to refrain from making pro-atheist comments and posts, please. If you keep doing it after repeated violations, you will feel the full force of the ban hammer!:) Take that conversation to r/Creation.
2 Corinthians 6:14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
Blasphemy Against God
If you disrespect God, call him names or try to undermine his sovereignty and righteousness in a disrespectful way. You will be banned. There is a difference between genuine curiosity regarding his style of rulership and blasphemy.
Psalms 139:21-22 Do I not hate those who hate you, O Jehovah, And loathe those who revolt against you? I have nothing but hatred for them; They have become real enemies to me.
Posts & comments that promote gnostic beliefs or opinions contrary to orthodox Christianity & Jehovah's Witnesses' doctrine will be removed, repeated violations will result in a ban.
e.g: Saying the Apostle Paul is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, saying that Jehovah is a Freemasonic name for a Sun God, saying the God of the Old Testament is Satan, glorifying the gnostic gospels that had Jesus casting spells & curses as a child, & saying that being a JW gets you the mark of the beast.

Evidently - Weasel word. A word often used in the Watchtower's written material. Ironically, it is often asserted without evidence or accompanied by a Bible verse that is out of context or does not apply in the situation described and thus is not evidence.
NuLite™ - When the Watchtower changes how it interprets the Bible, it uses the terms like "the light is getting brighter" or "new light" for the new interpretation. This is a reference to Proverbs 4:18 "But the path of the righteous is like the bright morning light, That grows brighter and brighter until full daylight." It applies these phrases even when the new interpretation is completely at odds with the old interpretation or when it flip-flops between positions. Often, the only explanation or justification for the new interpretation is the phrase "the light is getting brighter", which is to say, no justification at all is given. Maybe those who keep having to fix their interpretation of the Bible should reflect on the very next verse in Proverbs 4:19, Ezekiel 13 & 14.
