  1. Am I the only one who thinks Bullinger's Figures of Speech sound a WHOLE LOT like Harry Potter spells? Condescensio! Hypocatastasis! Asyndeton! Polysyndeton! Expecto-Runaroundem!

  2. Hello Mike. I've kinda missed you round here. Could always rely on you to make a point that would stir up Cafe denizens. Was wondering what had happened to you. You went away to study PFAL more deeply, I think. Well, no desire from me to study PFAL. Oh, I wish you could read it in the original! Maybe try deep-reading the two principal books that VPW plagiarised? I doubt TWI is really "moving back to the original PFAL class." Far too dated.

  3. Oh I’m always aware of that, Rocky ... and I figure I’ll have some fun too by poking holes in ridiculous arguments and pseudo-spiritual nonsense.

  6. That vending machine analogy brings to mind the frustration many TWI-believers have to deal with...some folks think it helps to add a little body English to their believing .... visual aid - adding body English to your believing

  7. Mike, what have you learned from your last few years? What specifically have you learned from PFAL that you didn't learn from the Bible itself? It's good that you're hanging out with other people. How loving, kind, patient, and giving, are these people you hang out with now? Apart from the Deadheads, are you hanging out with any genuine, practising, Christians, from churches and other organisations in your area? How do you see Christ working out in their lives? What do they do that exemplifies Christ to the wider population (rather than debating)? I have a hard time seeing

  8. Really? There aren't very many responses to John J's original post on this thread. Here's the main highlight: watch the video then give us you specific impressions.

  10. Thank you for the welcome! I have had a few talks, yes. I think they recognize that where we were at HQ, it wasn't the best place in the world to be a child. I'm almost certain that they still believe in a good number of TWI's teachings, so they might have some inner conflict with that. I'm very much not still in. To be quite honest even if I said that I missed a good portion of my summers, I probably would have done similar things to what we did during the play time, just in the comfort of my own or somebody else's home. Minus the bible teachings and some of the games we played outside.

  11. Welcome to Grease Spot, Just A Guy! Sorry I can’t help you concerning your time frame. I left in 1986. The only thing that might be remotely related to your request is to tell you that during my two years of in-residence Family Way Corps training in Rome City I was assigned to day care for a block – my group was called the Cheerful Givers. That was probably one of my favorite job assignments since we had a lot of leeway on designing our own activities and I got into hanging out with little kids anyway. My wife often complains she’s married to a three year old. I am sorry for your t
