1. What is the JW's standing on LGBTQ issues?

2. Does any JW's teaching encourage Holier than Thou attitude?

3. There seems to be an extra attack from JW on the Catholic church, can you tell me what the official standing is on this matter?

Immediately you start preaching your religious sect/doctrine than preaching Jesus Christ the author and finisher of our faith; i stop seeing you as a believer or a Christian. No middle grounds.

JW believe in Jehovah than Christ, thereby rejecting Christ and the mystery that Jehovah Himself performed by the birth, death and resurrection of Christ.

The Roman Catholics are more concern about Roman tradition than Christianity or Jehovah.
80% of Roman Catholic doctrines are purely lifted from Roman traditional belief with nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity or Judaism.
Eg Mary being the mother of God rather than being just the birth mother of Jesus (first ever surrogacy).
The Roman Catholics never knew a woman can give birth to a child she is not related to by flesh and blood in the same way she was made pregnant despite knowing no man.

Pristane:


You have sincerely listed your believes like many other churches we have today. Many of which their doctrines, teaching and practices are different from the early church as enumerated in Acts of the Apostles.

Let me also state that God will not assess you now and during judgement base on group belief, church belief, amily belief etc but as individual. Your believe and your way of life.

So please when you read and consume general saying, go to your secret place in prayer for God to reveal himself to you. Mind you, do not always go before God with pre-thoughts, pre-knowledge or past experience. Seek Him with open mind.

This my personal understanding.

Yes, God is Jehovah different from Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit. Please I am not trying to prove Trinity. I can't proof anything than what I know and have experienced and not what someone told me to believe.

I have never seen God, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit before but I have experienced them.

One I believe God created the universe.
Jesus Christ sacrifice Himself for my sin.
Holy Spirit leads, convince, and convict me daily in my heart with the knowledge of the word of God only.

When I get to heaven, I will ask God about other believes such as Trinity.

Let us check Bible very well both the version of Jehovah witness and Christian.

Almost all the pages of the Bible spoke about salvation right from the fall of man in the garden of Eden in Genesis to Revelation. Please read it with open mind asking God to illuminate your mind.

That Salvation came through JESUS CHRIST.

Rom.5.6 - When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners.

Rom.5.7 - Now, no one is likely to die for a good person, though someone might be willing to die for a person who is especially good.

Rom.5.8 - But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.

Rom.5.9 - And since we have been made right in God's sight by the blood of Christ, he will certainly save us from God's judgment.

Rom.5.10 - For since we were restored to friendship with God by the death of his Son while we were still his enemies, we will certainly be delivered from eternal punishment by his life.

God Chose Him (Jesus Christ for this purpose). The main reason why He was not born the natural way of sex. He is not just any man. There's no man like Him. It is for a purpose. My salvation.

God personally approves Him. Jesus also confirms it personally.

So when you are claiming you love Jehovah God and be little His provision for you. You make God's provision of Jesus Christ as a part of your source of salvation and deliverance. No. Jesus is not a part. He is a whole, complete and total. You can't add any other thing to Him.

This is like neglecting President's minister or ambassador and claim to respect, love and serving the President. A right President will not give you any audience because you have not respect him through his minister.

Jesus is the real Matter. If you miss Him, you missed Jehovah.

Check Jehovah or God's verdict on Him below.

Matt.3.17 - And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Matt.17.5 - But even as he said it, a bright cloud came over them, and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my beloved Son, and I am fully pleased with him. Listen to him."

Mark.1.11 - And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

Luke.3.22 - And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.

Jehovah or God says LISTEN TO JESUS CHRIST.


See Jesus Verdict below

John.14.6 - Jesus told him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.

John.14.7 - If you had known who I am, then you would have known who my Father is. From now on you know him and have seen him!"

John.14.9 - Jesus replied, "Philip, don't you even yet know who I am, even after all the time I have been with you? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking to see him?

John.14.10 - Don't you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I say are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me.

John.14.12 - "The truth is, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.

Jesus says you cannot get to Jehovah or God except through Him. Jehovah says Listen to Him. You better listen now and seek God sincerely in Christ only way.

See Peter's Testimony. The first disciple and the most senior Apostle of Jesus.

2Pet.1.17 - For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

No church today knows better than Peter.

Jesus loves you all. Let us release ourself to Him and enjoy the total and complete provisions of God Jehovah for us.

Shalom

Added to your explanations are the following bible verses:

1 John 5: 7 "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.

How else can we describe it?

Unfortunately in the Jehovah witness bible this bible verse was carefully circumvented to read "For there are three witness bearers,". The same has happened to some other bible verses that you will not find in the Jehovah witness bible.

I need our brother to please get the complete bible now, read through and explain it.

Tobimercy:
[/color]People who die pass out of existence. (Psalm 146:4; Ecclesiastes 9:​5, 10) They do not suffer in a fiery hell of torment. God will bring billions back from death by means of a resurrection. (Acts 24:15) However, those who refuse to learn God’s ways after being raised to life will be destroyed forever with no hope of a resurrection.​— Revelation 20:14, 15.[color=#006600]

But isn't what the bible said, it said the dead will be brought back to life and those whose name are not contained in the book of life will be cast into the lake of fire. Rev 20:14,15. Which version are you reading?

I heard you guys don't believe in the concept of Hell/everlasting condemnation for unrepentant sinners because "God is too compassionate and he wouldn't allow his creation to suffer " cheesy so what do you have to say about the Book of Revelation where it was clearly stated that "Whosoever's name was not written in the book of life was cast into the lake of burning sulfur..." is this a joke to you or y'all have a different interpretation for this?

we believe in Hell but not in everlasting condemnation....

Oga, they stylishly removed the concluding part of that 1 John 5:7, from their own Bible. You will not see it there. Check the New World Translation and compare it with King James Version.

an emphatic yes!!!

Remember Jesus called Him a "Comforter" and referred to the Holy Spirit as "He"...

the Bible is replete with references to the Holy Spirit as "He" and "Him"..

Remember also Jesus said "In THE NAME of the Father, and of the son and of the Holy Spirit..

In Isaiah I think, it is recorded that "the Lord God and His Spirit have sent me"

the Bible speaks of lying to Him, grieving Him, etc. These things you can only do to a person...

The Bible even records the Holy Spirit as saying "separate unto Me, Paul and Barnabas"..

I can go on and on and on..

Is there any passage in the Bible that describe the holy spirit as a person?. The Holy spirit as used in the bible is the means in which God dose his wonderful works. If you read the bible u will realise that it is been likened to the 'power of God'

Well I see MOST JW as greatest pretenders who preach not because they love God but because they were taught to do so by their parents/guardians ..

They select and preach few Bible verses that suits their heart desires.

Instead of Become A JW ,it's better not to go to any Church at all..I can go to their gathering Sha and learn few good things but me becoming their member issa no no no . They have too MANY false teachings.

I don't see them as Christians..
