  1. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2." It's a memorable exchange towards the end of the series. When I first heard it, I was reminded of a completely unrelated quote. In DC Comics, they sometimes printed stories that were out-of-continuity, and announced at the beginning that it was an "imaginary story, which may never take place." So, in response to a question as to whether a certain story was in canon - "Is this an imaginary story?" Elliot S! Maggin (I think it was him) said "Of course it's an imaginary story. Aren't they all?"

  3. "He played it left hand. But made it too far. Became the special man." "Like a leper messiah. When the kids had killed a man I had to break up the band."
  4. Mystery Men Anchorman-Story of Ron Burgundy Tropic Thunder
  5. the Dark Knight Gary Oldman Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  6. "He played it left hand. But made it too far. Became the special man."
  7. Was JOAN CUSACK in all those movies? I'm having trouble picturing any other woman from "Addams Family Values" showing up in the other movies.
  8. Rachel Weisz The Mummy Brendan Fraser
  9. Danny Aiello was one person who covered "Chubby Clementine." Until now, I hadn't realized it used the same tune as "My Darling Clementine."
  10. The office in Payne, Ohio is supposedly where he kept considering whether to quit as a minister in his first 2 years of that career. It's supposedly where he told God that he'd quit if he didn't have some definite answers he could rely on. Supposedly, that's when he got the 1942 promise (which, obviously, was a lie because it failed on many levels.) Either the next day or the next instant (his accounts varied) he asked God to confirm this with the snow. Supposedly, the view out the window was completely blocked by snow, either completely black or completely white (his accounts varied.) As for SIT, all of his accounts trace that to the convention where he claimed the other snow job, and JE Stiles working with him for hours (like one does with a remedial student as opposed to someone exceptional who may need a few minutes.)
  11. I'm just curious- does anyone else wonder if the twi cadre is so clueless, so out-of-touch with reality that they think their escapees are just waiting for an excuse to come running back to twi?
  12. It's funny how nobody wants to mention the GSC, but everybody reads it and know everybody else reads it. -JAL advertised to us and commented to us, but refused to mention us BY NAME or to officially tell his people to post his correspondence to here. Also, when he deleted his letters to twi from his website, we reprinted them here. They reappeared on his website shortly thereafter. -When twi announced they were kicking Mrs Wierwille out of her home and putting her in a nursing home, the announcement arrived here and the outrage began. twi INSISTED their reply be allowed to be posted here. -Rosa-lie has had a staffer print out threads from here for her to read as hard-copies, which is rather inefficient. -When Bob wrote about "what's wrong with twi?", the answers could have come straight from GSC posts- and all or some of them almost certainly did so.
  13. C) The alleged promise was based on ignorance. twi's system shares a trait with some of the extwi systems- they're Gnostic systems based on secret knowledge. The twi system-which was vpw's system, set up by him and used by him all the time- was that study of the verses was the key to God (plus the "Law of Believing"),. So, the more you study the verses, the more "godly" you can become, especially if you study it the twi way. We've all seen far too many horror stories of twi "masters" who partly memorized vpw/twi materials and were bigger schmucks if anything. Geer spent hours going over vpw's teachings in between drugging women for vpw to rape and preparing to throw himself over vpw as a human shield if anyone tried to shoot him. But, let's expose the IGNORANCE in the alleged "promise." How DID the 1st century Christian church know God's Word? They knew the Torah/Old Testament. They knew the SPOKEN word, They knew The Word BY EXPERIENCE AND POWER. Think about it. They were getting converts left and right while being a disciple was ILLEGAL and punished by imprisonment, murder, or both. They got LOTS of converts with that going on. No amount of charismatic demagoguery can make up for the risk of being killed or imprisoned. You might get a few disaffected outsiders. Saul of Tarsus joined them - a former persecutor and murderer of Christians (he didn't put his hand on the knife, but he ordered it done.) Did the Greeks hear good speeches then run out and conclude that their gods walked among them and prepared to offer blood sacrifices? They SAW something. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof. However, provide the extraordinary proof, and the claims stop looking extraordinary-at least in comparison to the proof. The 1st century Christians preached-but were known because they had power and could deliver where they spoke. Lots of people preached and didn't get significant converts. Theirs was a pragmatic, direct, power-based ministry. twi was never that. They were study-based, and TALKED ABOUT power lots of times, then considered "Kojacking" a significant witness of "power." 1st century Christians were never centrally-controlled nor organized. twi bore no resemblance to 1st century Christianity except where twi CLAIMED they did. But all the claims don't mean reality matches a claim. The 1st century Christians probably didn't have access to the entire New Testament ANYWHERE. All documents had to be hand-copied. With no printing press and no scanners and PDFs, that was a laborious process and few copies circulated for the 1st century AD (certainly relative to now.) So, twi has NEVER had "The Word as it was known in the 1st Century." because vpw NEVER had "The Word as it was known in the 1st Century." vpw might have known that when he phrased the promise he was supposedly given, but he skipped over "Church history". So, he was likely to make such a mistake where God Almighty would not. vpw made up the alleged 1942 promise. and it's easy to show all the errors. There was no such promise. There's no real, sensible reason to laud vpw or "his" books. They don't comprise "revelation."
  14. B) The alleged promise was a lie. Supposedly, God Almighty promised He would teach like it hadn't been known since the 1st century AD. If this were true, there would be a complete disconnect with what was being taught and known elsewhere in 1942 EVERYWHERE and what vpw later taught (because we know he taught others.) However, even those who idolize vpw agree that the material he taught was already taught by others. A paper trail can be traced for virtually all the twi material vpw taught. vpw took Leonard's class, and a few months later, taught 100% of the same material. vpw bought Stiles' book, then typed up a book with the contents- later adding the contents of books by Bullinger to flesh it out more. And so on. So, either God Almighty lied when giving this promise, someone else claiming to be God lied and vpw couldn't tell the difference between a lying spirit and God Almighty, or vpw lied and nobody promised him at all.
