.
1.
Myth: Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe in heaven.
Apparently, this is not a new saying as people tend to say what they might have heard about the Witnesses not scrutinizing them whether or not they are truth.

.
Truth: Jehovah's Witnesses believe in heaven as the residence of the Creator of the Universe.
.
2. Myth: Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe in hell.
.
Truth: This is where people misunderstand themselves. Jehovah's Witnesses believe 'Hell' is the common grave of mankind. Witnesses do not believe in 'hell fire' as it is unbiblical, unless you'll show me where the original sinners -- Adam and Eve -- went to 'hell fire.'
.
3.
Myth: Jehovah's Witnesses do not celebrate anything.
.
Truth: If you mean holidays like birthdays, Christmas etc., of course yes. Think: what is the relevance of Santa Claus in the bible? Do they or not have pagan origins? In fact, Witnesses commemorate the Death of Jesus as Jesus asked his disciples to do.
.
4. Myth: Jehovah's Witness do not speak in tongues.
.
Truth: Well, Jehovah's Witnesses speak many languages as they come from differing lands but do not involve in the ecstatic speaking performed today by religious leaders. The first century Christians who received the gift used it to preach to people (as the early congregants were filled with people from many lands), so they spoke a language and all who heard understood. Note: To preach. Is that what is done today? Don't throw caution to the wind.

.
5. Myth: Jehovah's Witnesses do not do blood transfusions and are wicked to see their loved one die.
.
Truth: Witnesses put much faith in doing God's will. Sorry to disappoint you, they love their children and loved ones. In fact, medical practitioners agree that it is not safe either, and no guarantee of living well or surviving as no blood samples really match another. Besides, there are other non-blood media. Coming to think of it, Witnesses put faith in the resurrection. Yes, so why worry of this wicked world?

I remember when I was in Ss3 ... I had this beautiful class mate of mine called Uchechi ...she was a very funny and lively girl and she was a Witness.

One fateful day she had an accident on her way to write NECO exam .... She lost a lot of blood and was the hospital requested for blood transfusion but the parents refused ... Everyday we went to the hospital we literally watched our classmate tether on the brink of death just because of a stupid manmade ideology.

Our principal had to involve social service authorities from the local govt and when they intervened, they took over the case and called the senior brother who was in another state to come and donate blood since the parents were adamant.

That was how Uchechi's life was saved but the unity of their family was never saved because she quitted the church when she went to Uni and her parents kind of partially disowned her.

It's written in the scripture that God gave people knowledge about medicine, He instructed you to go them!!!
But that shouldn't mean that you will put your trust in the medicine!!!

When the Bible told you abstain from blood you should go back and ask yourself why Abel blood was counted while those whom Elijah killed(prophet of Baal) wasn't counted

And alias why it is also written that whomsoever keeps anger against his brother till the next morning or bear false accusations against his brother he or she is guilty of murder

And in murder means kill and for someone to die blood must spill

Christian speak in tongue to God and it meant for God and speaking in tongues his through the power of the holy Spirit and not by the speaker himself and let it stick to your � ear that never is it used to talk to man but only a man by Power of the Holy Spirit communicate the supplication of his heart to the ear of God alone who hears and answer

Ask yourself what actually is the meaning of "speak in tongues"

1 corrithians 12:10
Jesus spoke in tongue at the cross of Calvary and people are saying blasphemy speaking in tongues doesn't actually means speaking out of this world but using a language the mind of the speaker or anyone one close to him know at that moment 1 corrithians 12:10 made you feel to understand for one speaketh without understanding the meaning of the language he spoke with another through the spirit interpret and might later find out the language the speaker spoke in

A Yoruba man whom leave in a Yoruba community among Yoruba people might start mixing language uncommon to him and his community during prayer, probably Dutch, french, Arabic at the same time during an intercessory prayer

This also reminds guy of the purpose of mankind to him, everybody is one to God

I think I will create another thread for this

JW sees the world as a simple place to live and die.

Live life, and pass on But some Christians own na live life, die, enter hell, burn for eternity like say na war meanwhile Adam and even no enter hell

But I don't support not given blood when needes as it can save lives Nd I don't see bad in celebration just get clean mind and leave hidden meaning

No blood transfusion. So if I am shot on the roadside and some good fellows rushed me into a nearby health facility. I'll explain to the doctor that I need no blood transfusion and will rather die than accept blood from a donor grin

Even as a Catholic no be every Catholic doctrine I dey swallow. I do religion with my common sense wink

Oh, Christ worshipers! We want an answer to our question from your wise. If the Lord was murdered by some people’s act…what sort of god is this? We wonder! Was He pleased by what they did to Him? If yes, blessed be they..they achieved the pleasure of His But if He was discontented….this means their power subjugated His!! Was the whole entity left without a Sustainer… so who answered the prayers? Were the heavens vacated…when He laid under the ground somewheres? Were all the worlds left without a God…to manage while His hands were nailed? Why did not the angles help Him when they heard him while he wailed? How could the rods stand to bear the True Lord when He was fastened How could the iron reach Him and His body pinioned? How could His enemies’ hands reach Him and slap His rear And was Christ revived by himself…or the Reviver was another god? What a sight it is!A grave that enclosed a god! What’s more weird is the belly that had Him in it! He stayed there for nine months in utter darkness…fed by blood! Then he got out of the womb as a small baby, weak and gaping to be breastfed! He ate and drank, and did what that naturally resulted in Is this a god??!! High Exalted be Allah above the lies of Christians All of them will be held accountable for their libels Oh cross worshipers…for what reason is it exalted and blamed who rejects it? Is it not the logic to break and burn it along with the one who innovated it? Since the Lord was crucified on it…and his hands were fastened to it? That is really a cursed cross to carry…so discard it Don’t kiss it! The Lord was abused on it…and you adore it? So you are one of His enemies!! If you extol it because it carried the Lord of the worlds why don’t you prostrate yourself and worship graves, since the grave contained your god in it? So, Christ worshiper, open your eyes, this is what the matter is all about.

Why don't you guys marry outside your church but your members have sexual intercourse with non members.

Why don't you guys accept other churches books and listen to their preaching but you go around knocking on people's doors.

Why don't you guys enter other churches if invited to weddings or anniversaries, which I know you do celebrate.

Why?

grin well I don't judge anyone belief, God alone is the judge but I strongly disagree with most of thier beliefs, this is why Jesus said u shall know the truth and it will set u free, Jesus could not have used the parable of Lazarus and the rich man in hell fire if hell fire is not real, anyone that know Jesus is the only one who will understand that Jesus does not joke with words, all his parable is based on reality either of things we could see or the things we can't see... I won't allow a white man whom Satan had decieved to make me believe that sinful souls won't end up in hell... Just imagine if u die only to realized u were decieved... Jesus is the truth and life forever

Simple question. Do you do blood transfusion or not, you are talking about something else.

But all the answers you gave are all myth.


TRUTH: Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe in heaven. They believe man will inherit the earth. Heaven isn't for man but God only. So, where are LAZARUS, Elijah, Moses etc
Are they in PURGATORY or grave

They ALSO believe that ONLY 144,000 people will go to heaven. Then why are we labouring to go to heaven So, is Elijah, David and so many Saints and Matryrs among this 144,000 or not Who are now those that will rule with Christ on His second coming The 144,000 or other Saints who made it during TRIBULATION TIME God would like us all to make it. This una census get as e be.

TRUTH: Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe in hell. Then why did the bible talked about FIRE and BRIMSTONE
They believe "hell" to be GRAVE. No punishment for sinners but death and that is all.

TRUTH: Jehovah's Witnesses do not celebrate anything. Very unexpressive people. They don't celebrate the birth of Christ (even if the chosen 24th December is debatable). They don't celebrate PENTECOST, Nothing!!!
Do you celebrate EUCHARIST Do you tithe or give to the poor around you Do you fast (albeit secretly)?

TRUTH:
Jehovah's Witness do not speak in tongues. The OP just confused himself by saying they speak other languages. That is not what is meant by "speaking in other tongues" or Heavenly Language as recorded by the first "Christians" in Antioch (after the Holy Ghost visited them as Christ promised.


TRUTH: Jehovah's Witnesses do not do blood transfusions. Yes! Because it is actually not biblical to do blood transfusion for life is in the blood. So why say it is a myth when you all do it

Why don't you allow your ladies to marry other Christians (at least) but your "brothers" can marry ladies from other denominations and convert them to JW via marriage. Is that not how the other religion does
Are we not serving the same God

M E A N W H I L E
He has been sending money from the UK to his brother to build him a palatable 2 storey building... Na the matter we dey try settle
