2010 – 2014 in review

As we already wrote in some previous articles 2014 was not a jubilant year for the Biblestudents and for the Christadelphians in Belgium. They had to face opposition and even people who wanted to silence them.

Because having had some censorship on other websites and some people working against us, we thought it perhaps useful for others (and for ourselves) to show to the outside world that we do not give up and keep going strong.

On 2005 November 11 we started at MSN with our Welkomstwoord, a word of welcoming those who would find us on the internet and greeted those who knew us also from Blogger. Some older articles we placed also on this platform and therefore we said: Welcome to some older articles.

In October 2010 we transferred everything to WordPress and started our publications on this platform, explaining who we are, what we believe and what we want to do.From January 2011 until March 2012 no time was found to publish something on the WordPress Biblestudents site. From April 2012 our motor started very slowly.

Mount Everest from Kalapatthar.

When you know that 600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012 we at the Low Countries could only get about 3,200 views that year. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 5 years to get that many views.

In 2012, there were only 27 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 74 posts. The year after we managed to publish 87 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 161 posts. We got about 7,600 views in 2013. for 2012 the busiest day of the year was January 9th with 49 views. The most popular post that day was Wat wij geloven. The busiest day of the year 2013 was March 27th with 99 views. The most popular post that day was 14 Nisan a day to remember #4 A Lamb slain.

Our train started to get under-way. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people as we found visiting us. It does not always went in crescendo, so last year we saw less people willing to go along with us on our trip into the Christian world. Again the busiest day seemed to be at the beginning of the year. January 11th  got the marker with 73 views. The most popular post that day was Over ons.

In 2014, there were 63 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 227 posts.

For 20112 and 2013 Watchtowers’s new face earned the two best places.

In 2014 most people did find us along:

  1. facebook.com
  2. christadelphians.wordpress.com
  3. twitter.com
  4. bijbelvorser.wordpress.com
  5. WordPress.com Reader

On January the 20th of 2015 we got a total of 19,623 views over 227 postings. At the moment the most popular page is the homepage with 11,740 views, followed by

Looking at older articles series over Russell on the previous Bible-scholar Association

On Bijbelvorsers Webs, the closing site of the Biblescholar association, we published on March 4, 2011 at 5:36 am:

Charles Taze Russell the year he died of a heart attack (1916, Oct. 31)  - Charles Taze Russell het jaar dat hij stierf aan een hartaanval (1916, oktober 31)

Charles Taze Russell the year he died of a heart attack (1916, Oct. 31) – Charles Taze Russell het jaar dat hij stierf aan een hartaanval (1916, oktober 31)

Our articles series over Russell has been gotten of our websites (2014 note: from the MSN Groups + from Windows Live Spaces) for a time , but will be placed back over a few months.  Before it comes so far we want to get it clear that on the net there are some wrong accusations to the name of Charles T. Russell.
Particular sites give wrong information on Charles Taze Russell and write that he is the founder of the Witnesses of Jehovah or the group called Jehovah’s Witnesses.

One of the pivot figures in the movement of the Biblestudents, Russell was a man of open mind that also in his free thinking looked to other students of the Bible and did not mind taking over some of their ideas.  As he wanted to take over several thoughts of the followers of Doctor Thomas (the Thomasites or Christadelphians).  He was against each form of authority.  He did not believe in such sectarian organization as the Witnesses of Jehovah had later become, neither in its authoritarian hierarchy.  The true founder of the Jehovah Witnesses organization was Joseph Rutherford.

Russel himself was also conscious of that not a human organization would be able to decide if some one would be able to enter the Kingdom of God.  Differently than the Society of the Jehovah Witnesses he pushed never the idea that all holy Christians had to accept all his ideas and decisions.

About this you can read already the right reaction of Reslight in:  Who’s The Founder Or Jehovah Witnesses?

  • Russian Court Declares Jehovah Witnesses’ Website Extremist (rferl.org)
    Prosecutors in Russia’s Tver region filed a claim last year saying that the ideas promoted by Jehovah’s Witnesses incite hatred and division.

    Three of the religious organization’s main books, “What Does The Bible Teach Us About,” “Get Closer To Jehovah,” and “Come And Follow Me” were also found by the court to be extremist.

  • Court bars kids from Jehovah’s Witness activities (stuff.co.nz)
    In March, the Family Court declined to continue the interim guardianship order which had placed constraints on the children participating in Jehovah’s Witness faith.

    The parents subsequently sought guardianship directions from the High Court either constraining or permitting the children’s participation in the faith.

    Lawyers for the children resisted such an order being made, submitting that it would curtail the children’s freedom of religion.

  • Judge stops children of Jehovah’s Witness from going to church (nzherald.co.nz)
    A judge has stopped the children of a Jehovah’s Witness from going to church and attending witness meetings and allowed them to attend birthday parties and Christmas celebrations.

    The High Court ruling, released publicly today, comes after the children’s separated parents appealed against Family Court orders regarding custody details.

    Justice Brendan Brown said his ruling would “dilute” the two young children’s exposure to their mother’s faith. However, he recognised the order was “at odds” with the children’s wishes.

  • 10 Things You Never Knew About Jehovah’s Witnesses (listverse.com)
    The modern day Jehovah’s Witnesses (known most commonly for their door-to-door evangelizing work) have been around since the late 1800s. It was around that time that a Bible study group based in Pennsylvania began analyzing, comparing, and dissecting Biblical scripture only to arrive at conclusions not taught by the majority of mainstream Christian religions. This group used zealous proselytizing to spread their scriptural discoveries. They also used their hope for the future that they gathered from the Bible to spread their beliefs across the US. Eventually, they spread their message into many different countries. Though they are currently based in hundreds of lands around the globe, the general populace knows relatively little about this far-flung faith.
  • Missionaries at the Door (guardianlv.com)

    Most everyone has had contact with missionaries of multiple faiths who come knocking at the door anxious to talk about God and religion. Many are keen to ask them to leave before getting their back history or any sort of personal information. While most have heard about Mormonism and the Jehovah’s Witnesses, many are not aware of the theological basis for their proselytizing and the institutional expectations that drive them.

    One of the fastest growing denominations in the country with a current membership hovering around 1.1 million, Jehovah’s Witnesses claim special and unique insight into the Bible and God’s purposes and will for people today. Each member is expected to proselytize on a regular basis. One can find them going door-to-door and two-by-two in any given big city or small town in America and increasingly throughout the world. They bare what they believe is a special message from God.

  • Jehovah’s Witness member dies after child delivery for refusing blood transfusion (dailypost.ng)
    According to London Evening Standard, Adeline, and her husband, Kweku Keh, had been looking for a child for many years. She reportedly endured years of failed fertility treatments, until finally; she was able to conceive naturally, only to die after giving birth to her son, Mawsi, through caesarean section at Homerton Hospital.

We are pleased to find that the older articles of the MSN Groups and later Multiply Bijbelonderzoekers and Christadelphians, having been transferred to Blogger.

We also would like to recommend our readers to have a look at the new website of  the Belgian Christadelphians in addition to their older ones. Though the links to Multiply in the articles shall not work any more from 2012 December 1, people always could copy and paste the title into the search window of Christadelphian World.
