Call them "Jéhovah's witnesses".
It's the Name they call themselves isn't it?
Besides, why not worship the way you can and allow others to do same?

A Christian is a Christ-like person.. A practicing believer and follower, not a contradictor of Christ's doctrine

"People living in the Spiritual Temple"

Our Master, Lord and King (Christ Jesus) tear down the former literal Temple {John 2:19} which requires that people must travel all the way to Jerusalem before they can be in the house of God {John 4:21-24} Jesus later built a spiritual Temple that accommodates people of all races.
JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES Organization proved to be that Spiritual Temple today!

HOW?

God's word foretold how individuals out of people from all nations will come together to form one big and happy family of peace loving worshipers, they will settle all the racial discrimination affecting people who aren't members of this Spiritual Family, they will render physical weapons useless within their midst, they will not enrol in military services and they will make laws that will benefit all members of this global family! Isaiah 2:2-4; Micah 4:1-3

That's the only sign to prove that you're dwelling in Christ {John 13:34-35} inside the Spiritual Temple there is so much abundant spiritual food {Isaiah 65:13} inside the Spiritual Temple people will continue to rejoice everyday because of the good condition of heart {Isaiah 65:14} but outside this Temple there will be Spiritual hunger and thirst! Amos 8:11

Satan (the evil genius) knew all of these so immediately after Jesus' assenssion to heaven Satan quickly went into action he multiplied so many false religions all claiming "CHRISTIANS" with contradicting teachings and conflicting doctrines {Matthew 13:25} but our God JEHOVAH foresee this so used his Holy Spirit to pick us out from all the false religions that Satan form, gathered us in his Spiritual Temple {Matthew 13:30} and called us by another name ~

No one can be like Christ....


A Christian is a follower of Christ


There are many doctrines in Christianity and so how do you define your own Christ's doctrine when you have Catholics, angiicans, Ethiopian church, Protestants etc....


Which of these doctrines are you talking of

Good morning.

nairalandankrah:
They believe that parts of the Bible are written in "figurative or symbolic language."

Well, even Jesus said he used symbolic language in most of his illustrations. Matthew 13:10-13, Mark 4:34
Other parts of the Bible attest to the fact that some aspects of it are written in figurative language as well. 2Peter 3:16, Revelation 1:1

In fact, almost the entire book of Ezekiel features some illustrations and enactments that cannot be taken literally if it should be understood.


While they follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ and honor him as their savior and the son of God, they believe that Jesus is not God and that there is no scriptural basis for the trinity doctrine...

The facts is that Jesus himself never mentioned that he was God. Mark 10:18, John 14:28, 20:17
His faithful disciples addressed him as the Son of the living God. Matthew 16:16, John 20:31 see Luke 1:32 also.
Jesus is the firstborn Son of all of God's creation. Colossians 1:15-16 and God has other spirit sons including Gabriel. Job 38:7, Hebrews 1:7




Jehovah's Witnesses believe that only 144,000 people will go to heaven and that all the other people who obey God will live forever in their various countries..

If I should ask you these questions:
1. What are those going to heaven going to do there? Because the Bible says they're going for an assignment.
2. At what point did God change his mind that humans should now occupy the heavens since the Old Testament makes no mention of anyone ascending to heaven? Compare John 3:13
3. The hundreds of millions of angels that God created weren't enough to occupy the heavens, so God somehow needs humans there to do what?

Would you be able to answer these questions?
Re: Since Jehovah's Witnesses Are Not Christians..what Do We Call Them? by MaxInDHouse(m): 10:29am On Jan 11
That's the fulfilment of a Bible PROPHECY!

It's there in every copy of the Bible and JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES in your area will be glad to help you work out how we came to conclude on that year as the very year Jesus was crowned in heaven.

I'll give you clues but you have to approach JWs in your area to teach you how to do the calculation yourself, it's not difficult!

Jesus foretold that immediately when he is enthroned he will send Satan and all demons out of heaven, these evil spirits will come to the earth, wars will ravage mankind, pestilences will be everywhere, false prophets will become many and this will go on till when Jesus turn his attention to the earth to come and put an end to all badness!

From 1914 till now, The world began experiencing what is called "WORLD WAR" due to the descending of arrogant spirits who possessed many politicians, after the wars pestilences have continued to ravage mankind, then the demons entered many people and made them performed so many signs and wonders to establish more false religions but Jesus' true followers were unitedly preaching and teaching throughout the earth despite all these so when all these religions failed to maintain PEACE in the midst of their followers, Jesus' true followers are known globally as one family even though they came out of different races!

So go now and ask a JW to assist you in calculating from your own copy of the Bible how we discovered the year 1914!

God bless you! smiley

Judaists.

However they can also be called antichrists like the Pharisees who were also Judaists, but still wanted to kill Christ because He said He was the Son of God.

God bless.

"THEY WILL SETTLE ALL THE RACIAL DISCRIMINATION AFFECTING PEOPLE"

Are you saying the 8 men are selected from all races?

I mean, is a black African among them?

Where there's no racial discrimination we don't think of skin colour, Jesus was Jew and he selected all his Apostles from amongst the Jews so if all the governors, ministers, senators and representatives are from one tribe in Nigeria all what JWs are concerned is PERFORMANCE not their tribe. That's what it means to settle all the racial discrimination affecting other people like you! smiley

The Son bears witness of the Father and the Father bears witness of the Son.

The Son is the Father's witness and the Father is the Son's witness...

and the Son = the Father, therefore, the Son is correct when He says He bears witness of Himself...

Maybe he should have asked why it was only Jews whom were the apostles and elders back in Jerusalem? Acts 15:2
But did that cancel out Acts 10:34-35? Absolutely not.

Those Jewish men had long been worshipers of God so they were more experienced than men from the nations who were relatively new. It is the prolificacy we are looking out for and not skin colour. Matthew 24:45-47, Acts 6:1-5

The Word shows that the 12 apostles are all Jews, from Galilee to be precise. Acts 1:11.

It also shows that the 144,000 are all Jews from 12 tribes of Israel, sealed during the great tribulation, revelation 7:1-9;

No black African among the 8 men even though you people claim that these are the last group of people to get to heaven...

Could it be black Africans are denied heaven as for now by your Jehovah?

If you know, good, give me a clue or any of the NL GB can help.
