@poster, kindly answer why you people don't donate or accept blood transfusion. I lost a colleague in September because she failed to allow blood to be transfuse to her when she lost blood during child birth. Her husband the same JW I learnt was involved in extra marital affairs and don't take care of her.

She is dead and gone, this man will continue his women affairs ministry and maybe her children may suffer for her decision not to allow blood to be transfuse into her.

Throw more light in this. I believe your women are at the receiving end in this. Saving life should be you people believe too.

the Real Hebrew Israelites in the Bible are Black people (Bantu) of Africa.
Song of Solomon 1:5-6 King James Version (KJV)
I AM BLACK, but comely, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, as the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Solomon.
Look not upon me, because I AM BLACK, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother's children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept.

Job 30:30- King James Bible
My SKIN IS BLACK upon me, and my bones
are burned with heat.

using simple ratio, you will see that these statistics don't match up.

May God help us all.

I like Jehovah witness brethren no doubt about that but there are some things i don't find enticing in their doctrine and character mode. the day I stage a conversation with one, I had to retire grin

nevertheless, I still read some of their books anytime am able to lay my hand on any.

Jehovah witness for example do not believe that Jesus Christ is GOD. To them Jesus Christ is a created being just like arch Angel Micheal. This belief is contrary to John1:1.
The Bible’s answer
Jesus’ opposers accused him of making himself equal to God. (John 5:18; 10:30-33) However, Jesus never claimed to be on the same level as Almighty God. He said: “The Father is greater than I am.”—John 14:28.

Jesus’ early followers did not view him as being equal to Almighty God. For example, the apostle Paul wrote that after Jesus was resurrected, God “exalted him [Jesus] to a superior position.” Obviously, Paul did not believe that Jesus was Almighty God. Otherwise, how could God exalt Jesus to a superior position? —Philippians 2:9. Or pls kindly go thru this link http://www.jw.org/en/publications/magazines/wp20081101/was-the-word-god/ or

Jehova witness are anti christ quote me any where.... They are evil. The love the things of the world very much. They dont believe in heaven. They are founded by rusell who is a member of freemansry. Google on rusell doctrine and post rusell doctrine. Read the interview of Rusell wife after rusell was buried. Read of the symbol in rusell grave and check the symbol use by church of satan. And the symbol in awake.... Do you know why michael jackson left jehova witness?

I WITNESS JEHOVAH but am not a member.
I LOVE them so much because,
---Of all the CHRISTAIN denominations....
They are the MOST Enlightened, Educated, Exposed.
It is usually difficult to SPOT the Illiterates among them.

They train their KIDS to be resourceful in future
They are good at PUBLIC SPEAKING.
They dress modest.
They rarely give in, to the changes of the new age.

They study the BIBLE more than any other denomination.

Above all they have the BEST EVANGELISM network, involving both the rich and the poor. (youngest and oldest)
Their CLERGYMEN talk cautiously, unlike many others who talk back at the congregation carelessly.
Never MONEY driven nor conscious.

I always entertained them right from my CHILDHOOD and I have learnt a lot.
I just wish I can worship GOD, the way they do.
MOST times I feel ashamed as a christain when I see them.
I hope to pay them a visit soonest.

I Love them.

last week, they came to my house. after interacting with them, they left and met with my neighbour who happens to be a member of Christ Embassy. They offered him their magazines, he gladly took it. but when he offered them Rhapsody of Realities in return, they quickly rejected it. my neighbour smiled at their hypocrisy. not believing in the Deity of Jesus is a great mistake by the JW. Jesus is the Son of God, and also God Himself. I can reel out countless scriptures to prove this. So OP, i encourage u to set aside what you have been taught by JW and do the research yourself. peace be with you.

Interesting! That's raises two key points:

What about those christians who still do evil things despite them being aware of a place of eternal torment?

Would still worship God, if he decided to remove hell fire.(that is if it even existed in the first place)? Do you avoid evil things out of the fear of being punished or cos u want to please God?


That's the difference! Jehovah's witnesses don't fear eternal punishment, yet they strive hard to do the right things cos they believe in force greater than fear - love of God. So whether there is a place of eternal torment or not, it don't really matter to them. Beside hell fire doesn't paint God in proper light

This is truly an eye opener. So Jehovah witnesses is not a religious organization but a religion.

Since they don't owe allegiance to the government, do they resort to their "fellow servants of God" instead of the Judiciary to endorse/enforce contractual agreement?

So the millions of Jews Hitler killed is insignificant compared to 1600 jehovah witnesses?

To me,they're the best christians in the world. Also,i have learned a lot from those that come to my house
a Muslim should not welcome other religion coz their isn't any religion apart from islam ,take your time to study the religion you practise and don't just say your mum being an Alhaja is the end of Islam.Allah knows best

Not insignificant..just the reason is.
Because they refuse to fight their fellow human. Was that the reason the jews were killed?
