NL mods love pushing JW post to the fp because it is a modified Islam made to look like Christianity. So its safe to call them Christian Cultists

We already know NL is an islamic-biased forum.

The Bible condemns spiritism and idolatry.
Deuteronomy 18:10-12.

JWs abhor such practices .

They also ostracize their sheeples from their non-JW family members. Thereby creating a sense of JW group dependency in their members.

That sounds like a clut

Imagine my ex JW girlfriend currently married to her brethren nagging me over not posting her picture on my status on her birthday.
Meanwhile they don't believe in celebrating birthdays.....

Go and buy shares in a company you will understand the trinity well, 5 bought shares, the five are the owner of the company,all are one but someone started it,he that started it has the largest portion but remember all are very important as the firstman. Jesus is a God that was why he was able to forgive sin,bring dry bone to life and walk upon the sea, jw will find it so hard to understant becos the have no knowledge of spirituality,meaning the are carnally minded and understand the scripture in a carnal way that was why they wrote their own bible

So to you people there is no hell fire or damnation for unrepented sins?

Which Bible are you people reading?
Oh I have forgotten, your own fictional JW bible.

You have better be prepared, the hell fire that the rich man ended in and which Lazarus escaped from is existing for all unrepentant sinners who died in their sins. Lk.16: 20-23.

To cap it all, you people don't even believe in the existence of the Holy Spirit, when the Bible categorically says in 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".
What does your bible say about this?

I couldn't help but notice there was no mention of the Holyspirit who is the gift from God to all believers. Acts 2:38-39
The teacher of all Christian's and through whom there is power to heal and bear the gifts and fruit of the Spirit. John 14:26
I have often heard that JW do not recognise the Holyspirit that you only see him as a force. How true is that?
Holyspirit as him? It's not an angel.

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.


This passage you quoted about death, it didn't say those that refuse to obey again will be condemned. Instead, it says, they will be judged based on what they did while they where alive. That is, the book of life will be checked if their name is not found there, they will be cast into the lake of fire.



Lake of fire? Can you cite where it's written in the bible?

your argument is very weak!

Jesus said I will send you another comforter.. so you can send your TV, RADIO ETC abi The Holy Spirit also sends people on assignments.. he has emotions which only person's have eg grieves, can be lied to.. gets angry etc..

The Holy Spirit is given a place with the Father and Son... surely "In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" is enough proof that He is a person.. The others are persons yet you seek to single out the Holy Spirit and "DISperson" him.. the context and by association, it is clear that He is a person...
Just like when it was written The Lord God and His Spirit have sent me.. you agree that The Father is a person but you choose to DISperson the Holy Spirit.. Not sound doctrine, logic or reason.

The Bible has more than enough proof to convince any open minded person except of course people who are fanatically loyal to their sect..

Wheelbarrow is your helper, is it a person?

I challenge you to name one occasion in your Bible when a believer was baptized in the name of the Father, the son and holy spirit grin

When weather is hot, Your electric fan is your comforter, is it a person?

Folklift is your helper, is it a person?

Greek pneuma is not a person. Anywhere you see holy spirit referenced as "him", na fraud the Bible translators do there.

Everywhere in your Bible where Jesus is at his Father's right hand, I challenge you to show us where holy spirit is mentioned there grin grin

Stephen saw Jesus at God's right hand, why he no see holy spirit at God's left hand?

Revelation 1:1 God gave Jesus revelation, why Jesus no give to holy spirit wey go give am to Angels?

Trinity na fraud. No deceive yourself grin

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
Let us check Bible very well both the version of Jehovah witness and Christian Christendom.
This is sarcasm, I guess. Well, if I may ask please, what will those who go to heaven do?

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..
