    Or if your tithe amount is pleasing to them, your attendance for Sabbath nor the feasts are important.

    Hi Jennifer.

    I echo what Joshua has said, and I'd like to add one more thing…

    You said, "The 7 feasts are very important to keep but if something such as work, school, or any sort of emergencies prevent you for going, god understands, it is not the end of the world. "

    How long have you been with the WMSCOG?  I am guessing not very long.  I believe that you will eventually find this statement not to be true, and that they will tell you not to put work or school ahead of worshiping God by attending the feasts.  When this happens, I hope you will remember what you said and that you will begin to realize not everything is as it appears with the WMSCOG.  I hope you will come back and have a conversation about it.

    I agree. Since my family was being groomed to be Gospel Workers as soon as we attended our first study, we were told immediately that these feasts had to be kept. Yet, others – those with "weaker faith" – were merely encouraged to keep the feasts. At the time I considered it milk before meat, and as time passed I assumed they knew that it was a numbers game and simply put, not everyone that comes to study and is baptized is "really a child of the most high." Now I see it for what it is… If you appear to be a free thinking individual that will likely not be controlled, you are under less pressure by the leaders.

    If this is true, "…not anywhere in the bible and WMSCOG soley goes by the bible." Then, where is this in the Bible? "… but if something such as work, school, or any sort of emergencies prevent you for going, god understands, it is not the end of the world."

    miff (v.)

    1797, "to take offense at;" 1811, "to put out of humor," from miff (n.). Related: miffed; miffing.

    miff (n.)

    1620s, "fit of ill humor," perhaps imitative of an exclamation of disgust (cf. German muffen "to sulk").

    Renita here's how I think it works. You visit a website and read an article that stirs you up. You comment on the article. You might never even visit that website again. Even if you do, you may not keep a track of your original comment or the article since you already read it and had your say.

    On this website, Admin takes some comments from the article and puts them in the forum as thread starters because they could be the basis for lots of discussion. The original commenter in many cases would probably not even be aware that the comment has been used as a thread starter on these forums.

     I undestand what's going on. I just don't like it. That's just my opinion. I would prefer someone to not comment at all if they weren't going to keep track of it. That's me personally.. Don't like it? Don't care.. =)

    I kept track of my comment got miffed when it was moved lol

    Ditto to all that. 🙂

    Anyway that is beside the point. I think the probability that someone posting a comment to an article will come back to participate in the forum discussion on the comment is very slim. We did have the rare "Jim" but that is more the exception than the rule IMHO.

    In some ways but I was merely explaining why one may not come to the thread here (ie it was their intention to discuss on the articlelike most article comment sections work.)

    Keeping the agreeing comments and moving dissent can appear shady

    Although we certainly know why is to better facilitate discussion not hide it away I know I personally was very suspicious to be honest I’m not sure why the comment section is there when he prefers the forum.
