Jehovahs Witnesses, I have some questions for you

In my opinion the JWs are a very false religion. The Watchtower society put themselves between God and their people. They baptism questions have been changed in the past decades to make followers swear allegience to the watchtower society, not God alone. As for Pagan influences, do your married people wear a wedding ring? A wedding ring has pagan origins, you cannot pick and choose which pagan influences you follow or ignore. I would rather a person acknowledge that Jesus lived and died for them one day a year in celebrating Christmas and Easter than ignore it like a Jehovahs Witness does.

i think you either you got a real bad accusation about this religion or you just don't really don't know who they are... or are you really willing to listen to them or just making some issues? since you have something against that religion it's just right to ask you the same question: How can you prove that you are not in false religion? that your religion is better than this one? Why are you celebrating christmas and easter? is it because you were born in the family with that belief? or is it because the priests say so?

Unfortunately I know more than I ever wanted to know about the Jehovahs Witnesses. I rarely discuss my beliefs, I do not push them on others. My beliefs are personal so if they are false, I am the only person affected. I have no contact or anything to do with any priests, so Ive no clue what you are talking about there. My parents have a totally different faith to me.

you know more than you wanted to know about them? i dont think so... i read your posts, i took one of them for instance, you said they preach that jehovah their god don' listen to non-believers' prayers... while they don;t preach that, or if someone did probably his lacking of something. Jehovah is the only Hearer of Prayer according to bible. just like how god pour rain and shine the sun to non-believers and believers, so he hear their prayers. there's an example in the bible, i just don;t remember the verse though, it's a king who is not a worshiper of jehovah. but when the crisis came, jehovah god helped him. one thing is for sure: "He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, Even his prayer is an abomination" proverbs 28:9 regarding your religion, i won't force you tell us, as you saied it's personal.... but isn't it right to declare that jehovah's witnesses is false religion while you can't prove that yours is right? that doesn't make any sense... then what is true religion? what if i'm looking for it? won't you help me? don't you belive in salvation or anything like that?

you said: "My beliefs are personal so if they are false, I am the only person affected"what if JW is the true religion, and i beleive what you said that they are false, and the day of "end" came according to what they believe, and i've been annihilated or whatever.... do you think still you're the only one who's affected? what if yours is true, and you didn't share it to me, and the day of your salvation came, and i'm perished because you didn't share it to me, do you think god won't "require my blood in your hand"? "When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 19Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul" Ezekiel 3:18-19 "Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee." 1 Timothy 4:16

From what I've read. Jehovahs Witnesses almost falls under the category of being a cult. That is they believe only they are going to heaven.

They also believe God only hears the prayers of Jehovahs Witnesses. The arrogance of that just blows my mind!

But my impression is that even mainstream Christians think that they are the only ones going to heaven. Do they believe that JW's are going to heaven? And do Christians believe that God hears their prayers also?

They have a worldwide campaign going at the moment to warn everyone that the end of false religion is near. My son said oh thats good but what will the JWs do with their Saturdays if they are going to disband?

When the political powers act against false religion, it will also mean a time of persecution foretold in the bible. Have you read about the great tribulation in the book of Revelation?. You can also find out in Revelation Chapter 17 and 18 which talks of Babylon the great[the mother of all harlots], by the help of God's holy spirit, Jehovah's witnesses have known the identity of this harlot,this harlot It does not depict any one religion but a worlwide religiuos organisation-religions whose teachings and practices do not conform to bible principles. Read more on this in our track, "The End of False Religion is Near" or visit our website www.watchtower.org

Jehovahs Witnesses have known the identity of the harlot? Is that what you are saying, who is this, the United Nations?

Thank you, you have obviously been doing a lot of research. Has it helped you come to any decision about the relationship with the JW woman?

no not really, because I don't know how comitted she relly is to it, and I think it has more to do with that she might lose her family, also that she is very closed afraid to speak out (well just what I fell), it's like anything you ask a JW that's alittle negative, they just reply "it's not true" or something like that and then they suggest you to go read on WT site www.watchtower.org. Is it true that JW people is very hard at getting into??, it's just my experience.

I guess they are more well practiced at keeping their guard up, and not used to free expression than others. How old is she and has she been baptised? The sad fact is she will almost certainly lose her family if she continues with a relationship with a non JW. Life and relationships are hard enough when you come from a similar background and faith. When you add the extra stress of family disagreements, etc, it makes things very difficult. Why didnt someone give me this advice before I was in too deep lol.

I find that most religions think they are the only one true religion so each will think all others are false.

I have discussed privately with another JW here on this forum my families history with the Watchtower society. I am happy to do so with you too if you are so interested. I can assure you, I could go very public and post the story here that would paint the JWs in a ver bad light but that is not my intention at all. You need to look through the forum a bit more thoroughly, there are people discussing ever aspect of their private lives here, I haven't touched the tip of the iceberg here.

I believe religion and faith are a thing of the heart, not mind. The mind naturally follows, but does not lead. I do not judge the people who are Jehovahs Witnesses, I base my opinion on injustice done to people I love by the Watchtower society and their man made rules.
