Your claim is FALSE.
You don't have to label baseless accusations even though you disagree with our beliefs.
JWs are the most peaceful, law abiding group in the world.

n yet u start with insulting me, dont u see how stupid u are?
Re: Jehovah's Witnesses' Year Without Knocking On Doors by MaxInDHouse(m): 6:27pm On May 15
Your atheist brother has been avoiding me like a plague ever since i used the truth to silence him!
But both of you are so stupid that you forgot the name "Covid19" can you imagine that it's someone i studied the Bible with that reminded me of this? smiley
That's to show you that millions are listening attentively to what we are teaching them.
My Bible student said:
"The Governing Body were released in the year 1919 from prison and instead of being tired of what they were doing they spontaneously announced globally that all members of the group must engage in preaching and teaching from house to house that same year. But Covid19 came and that order was reversed.
So it's 1919 ~ 2019 due to Covid19.
How come is it that it's exactly a hundred years later that something stuck the whole world and made JWs to stop going from house to house. Please Sir what will happen next?"

I was dumbfounded because i never thought he was keeping everything in his heart. You can continue to stay behind the camp, millions are paying rapt attention to our teaching! smiley

achorladey:

You know am now. No be today you Sabi Max. One begin to wonder, what is the correlation between year 1919 and Covid-19 that brought lockdowns all the world in year 2020?

Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Year Without Knocking on Doors

Jehovah’s Witnesses’ Year Without Knocking on Doors

I have been speaking to several Jeholies Witnesses and they have been so happy that the door to door thing is stopped for awhile.

In secrecy many of them detest the thing and the 8-Realtors of the Money Donation Trust-Will receiving Corporation of New York have been trying to move everything online so it is easy for them to adapt their lies codely (That is
One of the fruits of JW organisation) without anyone knowing unlike their many old books out there that they have tried unsuccessfully to retrieve all and that the "Apostates"(Ex-JWs) are making use of to burst open their stench filled history.





It’s been one year since Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide adjusted their hallmark methods of sharing comfort and hope from the scriptures due to the pandemic.



For many, the change from ringing doorbells and knocking on doors to making phone calls and writing letters expanded and invigorated their ministry.



“Witnesses have embraced this shift, finding the good in these trying times,” said Joseph Castano, who reports a 30 percent increase in the Witnesses’ preaching activity in his region of northern Virginia and nearby parts of West Virginia. “In fact, I hear many saying, ‘I’m able to do more now.’”



In March 2020, the some 1.3 million Witnesses in the United States suspended their door-to-door and face-to-face forms of public ministry and moved congregation meetings to videoconferencing.



“It has been a very deliberate decision based on two principles: our respect for life and love of neighbor,” said Robert Hendriks, U.S. spokesman for Jehovah’s Witnesses. “But we are still witnesses and, as such, we must testify about our faith. So it was inevitable that we would find a way to continue our work.”



In the bitterly cold winters of Arden Hills, Minnesota, Terri Whitmore normally bundles up for the door-to-door ministry in a long down coat and snow boots—sometimes with removable cleats to help navigate icy sidewalks.



Now she sits at her dining room table, sips on hot tea, and calls people on her cell phone to share the same message. In December, she conducted more than twice as many Bible studies than in any prior month. “I’m having a blast,” she said. “After a nice phone call, it energizes you. You can’t wait to make the next call.”



Her “go-to” topics for conversation with her neighbors are COVID-19, civil unrest, and government. “Some people feel like they have nothing secure to hold on to,” she said. “The power of God’s word is amazing. You can just share a scripture and you feel like they’re settling down.”



Nearly 51,000 people in the United States last year made a request for a Witness to contact them, either through a local congregation or jw.org, the organization’s official website, according to Hendriks. Since the outbreak, the Witnesses have followed up on these requests via letters and phone calls instead of in-person visits.



“Our love for our neighbors is stronger than ever,” said Hendriks. “In fact, I think we have needed each other more than ever. We are finding that people are perplexed, stressed, and feeling isolated. Our work has helped many regain a sense of footing – even normalcy – at a very unsettled time.”



Jayne Barnard, a central New Jersey native, frequently visited her neighbors as part of her public ministry prior to the pandemic. At the age of 83, she has spent the last 43 years preaching in nearby towns and hamlets. Barnard said she misses seeing her neighbors in person. “Before the lockdown, I spent much time going door-to-door,” she said. But at times she could not engage in this part of her ministry as much as she would like.



Now, Barnard participates in virtual ministry groups, reaching out to others via phone calls and letters. “We are still going strong,” she said. “There is no interruption in our ministry.”

Barnard said at first, not seeing those she was speaking with was difficult, but she found she can spend even more time in her ministry from home. “I appreciate that we are still reaching people,” she said.



In the rural areas of Salina, Kansas, where the wheat and corn fields stretch for acres, the Milbradt family sometimes drives miles from one house to the next to reach their neighbors. Now, instead of buying gasoline to fill up their vehicle for the ministry, they spend money on paper, envelopes, stamps, and crayons.



“We look for ways to add variety to our ministry,” said Zeb Milbradt. He and his wife, Jenny, help their boys—Colton, 8, and Benjamin, 6—write letters to children’s book authors, local police, and hospital workers. Sometimes the boys even include with the letters hand-drawn pictures of the Bible’s promise of a global paradise.



“We’ve been able to get the message to people who we wouldn’t necessarily reach otherwise,” said Jenny Milbradt.



A letter Benjamin sent to nurses at a regional health center included a quote from the Bible’s prophecy at Isaiah 33:24 of a coming time when no one will say, “I am sick.” The center’s marketing secretary replied to Benjamin, informing him that she scanned and emailed his letter to 2,000 employees. It “made so many people smile,” she said.



Witnesses have also made a concerted effort to check on distant friends and family—sometimes texting links to Bible-based articles on jw.org that cover timely topics, such as isolation, depression, and how to beat pandemic fatigue.



“Former Bible students have started studying again,” said Tony Fowler, who helps organize the ministry in the northern portion of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula.



“Colleagues at work have now started to show interest. Some have started Bible studies with family members who showed very little interest before the pandemic.”



Castano has been reaching out to Witnesses who had long ago stopped associating with fellow Witnesses. “The pandemic has reignited their spirituality,” he said, adding that many are attending virtual meetings with some sharing in telephone witnessing and letter writing even after decades of inactivity. “It’s been pretty outstanding,” he said.



Fowler and Castano both report about a 20 percent increase in online meeting attendance. But perhaps the most significant growth is in an area that cannot be measured by numbers.



“I think we’ve grown as a people,” Fowler said. “We’ve grown in appreciation for other avenues of the ministry, our love for our neighbor, and love for one another. We’re a stronger people because of all of this, and that’s a beautiful thing to see.”

The same LordReed you trust some months ago in one of your response on this platform is now stupid. I go keep that your reminder for cooler. grin grin grin I know Oaroloye had a good description about the word stupid as it applies to you grin grin grin

the name "Covid19" can you imagine that it's someone i studied the Bible with that reminded me of this?

Here was the initial post I responded to,

Governing Body from prison and order to stop going from door to door was issued at exactly 100 years due to Covid 19

When was the order to stop going from door to door given?

A. Exactly 100years (1919-2019)

B. Exactly 100years (1919 - 2020)

C. I backtrack.

You can continue to stay behind the camp, millions are paying rapt attention to our teaching!

Another reminder needed here concerning behind the camp. Hebrews 13: 12

Therefore, Jesus also suffered outside the city gate+ in order to sanctify the people with his own blood.+ 13 Let us, then, go to him outside the camp, bearing the reproach he bore,+ 14 for we do not have here a city that remains, but we are earnestly seeking the one to come.+

Allow me stay outside the camp Biko! grin grin grin

I enjoy meeting them. I have been renamed by them in my area as the "Enemy of the 8-Realtors and no longer discreet lying slave".

Whenever I see them trying to brainwash ignorant people and I stylishly go get involved and burst everywhere with the facts of their stench filled history till the gullible Christians that they are trying to sucker in start saying, hmm! Hmmm!.

Do you still remember the name given to the Pandemic that made JWs order all members to stop what they began in 1919?
Well let me remind you that it's called Covid19 because it surfaced in the year 2019.
So from 1919 that they were released, something strange happen exactly a 100 years later to make them give another order for all members to stop going from house to house!
You are looking at the matter from the viewpoint of an atheist but my Bible student knew that it's a spirit that's giving the order not just the Governing Body that we're seeing! smiley


LoL! The name is not because of the year it came out. Also you said that the order for lockdowns came 100years exactly after 1919, lockdowns started in 2020 so unless you don't know how to count you are wrong.

How do i explain things of the spirit to an atheist like you? smiley
Well since you purposely picked interest in this i'll oblige to enlighten you. I know you really have deep respect for my understanding but ever since i turned you down it will be difficult for you to admit it publicly. smiley
The Governing Body of JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES are imperfect humans that Jesus is using to direct the global family of peace loving worshipers today. This people can't hear a single voice because Jesus promised that the Holy Spirit will teach them all things. John 16:12-13
So the question is How will they hear from the spirit? Since they won't hear any literal voice they have to keep praying while meditating on the scriptures daily until a sign comes to them. This sign will be obvious to them that they have to pray over it the spirit will now direct them to a specific Bible verse that all of them must pay rapt attention to and meditate thoroughly. It's through the pages of the Bible that they will come to a conclusion on what to do.
In the year 2019 this same Governing Body published a magazine (study edition) for all members of the organization few months to the outbreak of Covid19. The title of that article is "The last of the last days" and few months later Covid19 broke out in China!
If they didn't get the clear order from the mighty spirit being (Jesus) directing them of course they realized it when members are sleeping in death due to lack of their understanding regarding what the spirit is saying!
Something like this happened in the first century, Jesus has taught them so many things but told them that God's Holy Spirit will reveal the rest to them. However they didn't understand that the memorial emblem (bread and wine) was not to be eating by all the members rather it's only the born again Christians that's worthy to partake. It's until many members began falling sick and some were DYING {1Corinthians 11:27-30} that they went back to study God's word prayerfully to know what exactly is the spirit saying!
So the order from the spirit has come in 2019 before they could discern it clearly in the year 2020, that's why i humbly accepted what my Bible student said that the order wasn't from the GB rather it was Jesus himself but imperfect man can't just grasp it without a sign!
Your friend can't understand this!
When a member of JWs first dedicate himself to JEHOVAH our God will dispense a measure of the Holy Spirit to such a person, but when such a person decides to break away from the rest of the body (Organization) the spirit will leave him/her so even when a person still learning can perceive something the Apostate will only continue to argue because the spirit is no more with him! smiley

LordReed:

LoL! The name is not because of the year it came out. Also you said that the order for lockdowns came 100years exactly after 1919, lockdowns started in 2020 so unless you don't know how to count you are wrong.

Lockdown didn't begin in 2020..

The Spanish influenza was here before Coronavirus.

"Nonpharmaceutical Interventions Implemented by US Cities During the 1918-1919 Influenza Pandemic. JAMA. Flu cases continued to mount until finally, on October 3, schools, churches, theaters, and public gathering spaces were shut down. Just two weeks after the first reported case, there were at least 20,000 more.27 Mar 2020"

Lockdowns for Covid19 started in 2020.
Re: Jehovah's Witnesses' Year Without Knocking On Doors by MaxInDHouse(m): 7:58am On May 16
YES the world announced it in 2020 but what led to the lockdown came in 2019 and months before then the GB of Jehovah's Witnesses have told us that we are in the last of the last days. Where is that your logical reasoning now? cheesy

many old books out there that they have tried unsuccessfully to retrieve all and that the "Apostates"(Ex-JWs) are making use of to burst open their stench filled history

Many of the old books leading members into APOSTASY infact citing one here made one call me an APOSTATE.

The instruction given concerning the reporting of field service na serious laughter. Their religious leaders can wake up at anytime to determine what and what not should be reported. Dashing out report seconds, minutes and hours as they please grin grin grin


One of the old book that'll continue to expose their lies is "Should you believe in Trinity?"

That book was so full of lies and distortion of truth that after people pointed it out, they have to pull it out of their archives and library but unfortunately for them, many people already with the book.
