Why Do Jehovah's Witnesses Not Marry Other ' Christians '? by chatinent(m): 8:42am On Jul 26
Of course, Christians who want to marry are commanded to choose only a fellow believer. ( 1 Corinthians 7:​39) Jehovah’s Witnesses view this command as referring not merely to a person who respects our beliefs but to one who shares and practices those beliefs as a baptized Witness. ( 2 Corinthians 6:​14) God has always directed his worshippers to marry only those of the same faith. ( Genesis 24:3; Malachi 2:​11) This command is also practical, as modern researchers have found.
.
I know some will reprove me saying 'we are all Christians.'
Think: If you marry, will you appreciate if she didn't come to your church? Will it end in happiness? Would you share her beliefs? Even greatly, it will be disobedience to our God. We appreciate marrying people who share our beliefs; it brings happiness and we can avoid marry problems as pre-marital sex, unwanted pregnancies, and STDs.
.
Next time when you say 'we are all Christians,' do well to be open-minded to ask yourself if your beliefs are the same with ours.

Why do women talk in church

Why do Africans pray To foreign Gods

Why is it that the two most popular religious group also happen to be the two most violent in history

Why do Africans always act inferior in all aspects of life

Can Africa stand on its own ground and live without foreign gods, goods and aids??

Will NEPA bring the light today?

Meanwhile i design website and I'm based in Abuja see my signature

If we begin ask questions here night go reach



Theevilone:


What is Africa ?

Who mapped Africa?


Who gave her the name Africa?

The Ethiopia that resisted colonization how well have they faired, is Ethiopia better than most colonized countries?

Didn't Europians colonize the Asians too are they not better and why is their religion still intact?

The Britain also colonized America and today they are what they are despite accepting the Europian religion.

The Europian invented almost everything, they also invented most of our favourite foods , clothes , cars , and practically everything we do today so tell me why we won't be inferior them.

They gave us government but didn't tell us to start fainting when asked for accountability.

Untill when we answered all this questions we will understand why we are were we are.

I know for a fact that Jehovah witnesses and other hard core Christians and Muslims are just a menace to the society

what do you get when an Anglican marries a Jehovah witness?

You get someone who just comes to your door and bother you for no reason

Jehovah's Witnesses do and believe what their religious leaders tell them to do. It doesn't have to be what the bible says, as history of their religion has proven many times.

For Jehovah's Witnesses to marry or not to marry a fellow Christian (not denomination) is solely based on what their currently belief as set forth by their religious hierarchy. They can claim from now till tomorrow that it's the bible blablabla. But when all is done and dusted, it's based on the current edict of their religious leaders. If the leader changes their mind, 8m people also changes their mind.

In the months leading to my awakening from the group, an elder in one of the congregations I attended said to members that when they are preaching to outsiders, they have to preach what is there in the bible, then enforces the point by saying, not just what they see in the bible but it has to harmonise with what the religion (they call it organisation) teaches.

This indoctrination crystallises their mind. That is why if you are talking with one of them, and what he is saying clearly contradicts what the bible says, its like a veil covers his eyes from seeing it. He will argue, jumped from one point to another so as not to see what is clearly stated there in. But to know his mindset, just ask him what he will do if his religion start teaching the same thing in the future, that's when you will realise the truth. That these people are men's followers. They are idolaters.

Religion causes more harm and division to the human race.

I could remember a lady who was totally into me breaking up with me because she was from a different Christian denomination and her dad was a pastor.

Don't do religion, do spirituality.

That's because it's a mind-controlling/brainwashing cult like most other religions and sects.undecided It's all about control. The truth is that most religions prefer their adherents to marry within their circle, to maintain control over them.

Religion have destroyed humanity more than war.
A faithful adherent of any religion is an extremist.
Religious people discriminate and hate others that don't don't share their own beliefs and doctrines.
That's is why I love the Catholics, Anglican, Methodist, Presbyterian and Baptist Churches.
They don't restrict their members from marrying from Islam, traditional society and other churches, being it man or woman.

Religion in its totality is a farce.
The MOST important is “DO GOOD AND AVOID ALL THAT YOU WOULDN’T LIKE DONE TO YOU”.
Life is simpler than what religion afflicted.

I really like them because of their enthusiast level of preaching without ceasing, but fanatica aspect I don't like them, God said we should seek for knowledge no matter how cost, that's to say God want us to learn wide.
