We as Jehovah’s Witnesses adhere to the form of Christianity that Jesus taught and that his apostles practiced. This article summarizes our basic beliefs.

And do you think it's godly to write projects for others let alone selling already written ones? Well, I guess you may not know. Kindly desist from such. It's an academic fraud. Don't aid corruption in whatever guise.

Even Jesus taught people with the case of rich man and Lazarus. Luke 16:19-31

It was a Parable!

What good did Lazarus do to warrant God's favour.

What evil did the rich man do to end up in torment?

What is the distance between heaven and hell?

Is Abraham in heaven already?

What did Jesus mean by saying no man has been to heaven except himself that came from there?
These questions prove it was a Parable not a real life event!

10. Family. We adhere to God’s original standard of marriage as the union of one man and one woman, with sexual immorality being the only valid basis for divorce. (Matthew 19:​4-9) We are convinced that the wisdom found in the Bible helps families to succeed.​—Ephesians 5:22–​6:1.

Matthew 19:9 And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
Ask yourself : do married people commit fornication and why did he (Jesus) use fornication and adultery at the same time?
You people thought that you know bible more than others.
Wait!
You forgot to mention that they have their own version of the Bible with the obvious difference been in John 1 vs 1. Because they don't want to accept that "the Word was God".

Jehovah's Witnesses do not engage in witchcraft, magic or the likes of such! (Deuteronomy 18:10-12, 1Corinthians 6:9-10, Galatians 5:19-21)
We liken all these accusations to the ones Jesus said his followers would face — Matthew 5:11, 10:25 smiley

Matthew 19:9 "po.r.neia" is the Greek word used there.
That Greek word references all forms of sexual activity (fornication, homosexual, lesbian, etc) outside the marital union of man and wife.

Greek 1510 and Greek 2316 in Acts 28:6 and John 1:1 means the same thing.
Bros, you can't shift this goalposts. grin
NWT is very accurate.

Mind you, many other Bibles have similar rendition to NWT.
The Coptic sahidic Bible older than any English translation validates NWT.
Go figure.

I admire your post and the way and manner you answer questions. I have always being one with an open mind when it comes to religion, though being brought up in a catholic faith family. My travels, experience and education has made me more accommodating in respecting other beliefs.

I have always being fascinated about JW's teachings as it relates to life after death, the existence of heaven or hell, the observation of certain Christian holidays like Easter, Christmas etc etc. I am always open to learn more.
All thanks go to the sovereign of the universe. I'm interested in having a bible chat with you other than here.

I disagree with your teachings..Jesus is God trapped in humanity. In order for us to be saved God had to come down in form of a man to save man. Man lacked true knowledge of God that was why Jesus had to come to unveil the father. When the bible says Jesus is the son of God it doesnt mean God gave birth to Jesus or has a carnal knowledge of a woman...Nooo..He is called the son of God because Jesus became a man to save man. Jesus is God compressed in mortality,trapped in matter,time. When deity becomes trapped in humanity, the almagamation of deity with humanity is called son of God. It is not son of God as in natural birth.
John 1 vs 12
Bornagain is the almagation of deity with humanity
There are so many other things you should unlearn and relearn

Quite impressive. The holy Spirit is even a man not a woman.

Romans 8:26 KJV "spirit itself...." grin

Romans 8:16 KJV: “The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:….”
Romans 8 :26 KJV: “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.”
Greek pneuma = wind, breath, spirit.
Greek pneuma is neuter (not male or female).

No mind that fraud common in Christendom

Jesus meant that non of those people present has been to heaven so that they can bear him witness.

Are you saying that Jesus used false parable or what will you say is the meaning?
They could not even understand earthly examples.

John 3:11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness. 3:12 If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things? 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
Matthew 8:11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
Yes! Abraham is already in heaven.

Jesus made it clear that the man did not do what the teachers and prophets taught when he pleaded on behalf of his brethren that are still alive.

Dem fit play Naira Marley music and nor complain about the lyrics but immediately you play Frank Edwards, Tope Alabi and other gospel music dem must see something to criticize about the song.

You are wrong!
Jesus is confirming the Old Testament.
The fornication there means before marriage.
Note: you can't divorce her if you are aware or have slept with her before marriage.

Deuteronomy 22:13 If any man take a wife, and go in unto her, and hate her, 22:14 And give occasions of speech against her, and bring up an evil name upon her, and say, I took this woman, and when I came to her, I found her not a maid: 22:15 Then shall the father of the damsel, and her mother, take and bring forth the tokens of the damsel's virginity unto the elders of the city in the gate: 22:16 And the damsel's father shall say unto the elders, I gave my daughter unto this man to wife, and he hateth her; 22:17 And, lo, he hath given occasions of speech against her, saying, I found not thy daughter a maid; and yet these are the tokens of my daughter's virginity. And they shall spread the cloth before the elders of the city. 22:18 And the elders of that city shall take that man and chastise him; 22:19 And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days. 22:20 But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel: 22:21 Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the LovePeddler in her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.

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?

1)
Jehovah God condemns homosexual and lesbian practice. Romans 1:22,26-32. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.
Anyone who desires to worship the only true God, Jehovah, must QUIT such practices and continuously work hard to desist from sin.

1 Corinthians 6:11. Galatians 5:22-24.

2). No.. not at all.
The mantra is "if you can't beat them, join them (in sin, fraudulence and debauchery )" because JWs don't compromise our faith,Acts 5:29, others erroneously feel JWs are holier than thou"

3) JWs Bible based beliefs doesn't sit well with Christendom, not just the Catholic Church alone.
The Bible is against Christmas, mariolatry, Trinity, immortal soul etc.
When JWs use the Bible to point these out, you get to see that atheists and Christendom are paddy paddy..

Shalom.
