You using Leaving school and Leaving your home as arguments for this topic? This is pathetic. You really don't know what to say. When people leave school, do they loose their families and friends? Do they shun them? When you leave your home, do you lose families and Friends? Do they shun you? Your IQ is very poor. This is serious! Try to think about what you want to type before typing. How old are you?
Thank you for confirming that You cannot leave JW without serious consequences. This is sign of a Cult Number Two.
According to Jesus, apostle Paul and apostle John whoever shrinks back from the group is no longer worthy to associate with so condemn Jesus, Paul and John they're the ones we are following not your opinion!

Has Watchtower ever disclosed how they became Billionaires? Did they ever inform you JWs about them being involved in Real Estate Businesses? Did they tell you about their investments? Yes or No?
So who do you think owns all the millions of dollars gained from whatever God's people have?
Do you know that throughout the world only JWs distributes Bibles (deluxe) and everything else to all their members free of charge?
Well our God is the richest that's why none among his worshipers lacks the tools needed for our salvation like Bibles the spiritual sword Jesus ordered all if us to get at all cost! Luke 22:36 compare to Psalms 23:1; 37:25

Unlike your own pastors that are using your contributions to buy private jets and properties no member of God's organization can use any of what is owned for private use.

Recently a member of the Governing Body was stepped down all your friends were rejoicing but do you think if the assets of God's organization is for their personal use he won't go to court for his own share?

@ Jesus said whoever shrinks back is unworthy of God's organization {Luke 9:62} so no member of God's family should have dealings with such foolish ones! Romans 16:17; 2John 10-11
@ Jesus said whatever those taking the lead in God's organization binds the heavens has bound it and whatever they loosen the heavens has loosened it {Matthew 16:19} so whoever feels like he's smarter than them will receive judgment like Ananias and Saphiras even though they were wrong on what they decided upon.
Jesus has warned his disciples that poverty can not be eradicated among them until God's Kingdom comes {John 12:8} yet the apostles committed a blunder trying to eradicate poverty in their midst {Act 4:34-37} but when Ananias and Saphiras tried to play smarter than the apostles God's Holy Spirit killed them despite the fact that the arrangement wasn't right from the standpoint of the founder of Christianity! Act 5:1-11

So whoever want to question the authority Christ gave those leading God's organization is doing so at the expense of his own soul! Hebrews 13:7, 17

You can see I am no longer depending on you supplying Yes or No answers. Your responses so far are enough to be deduced.

So, your answer to the first question is No. Watchtower never informed you JWs about how they achieved their Billionaire status and their investments. This is sign of a Cult Number Two.

Your answer to the 2nd question is No. You are not allowed as A JW to question, correct or criticise your Watchtower leaders when they are obviously wrong about anything. This is sign of a Cult number 3.

My next question, Are you allowed to speak or associate with Ex members of your religion or with JWs who choose to leave? Yes or No.

Joh 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, that is his natural way of speaking, for he is a liar and the father of lies.

So you were not informed that they are two forms of funding your organizations was receiving from the Norwegian Government?

1. There is a standard grant every religious organization receives from the government - powered by the religious community act.

Of which funding your organization was cut off from in 2021, because of your wicked shunning policies that violate fundamental human rights.

2. Another grant comes specifically from the Norwegian Gambling Authority.

In 2022, your organization received over 4M Norwegian Krones from the Gambling Authority.

How can the only true religion be so engrossed in receiving money from "Satan's World"?

You say Gambling is a sin and a sign of greed, but your organization is receiving free money from a Gambling Authority!

You heard me right.

The only true religion aka The Jehovahs Witnesses Organization is accepting free money from the Norwegian Gambling Authority.

I know you might wonder - what is wrong with accepting free money from a Gambling Authority?

As background information, I told you sometime ago that the Norwegian government canceled the free grants being given to Jehovahs Witnesses because of their shunning practices which the government of Norway called "an abuse of human rights" - you can check out the thread here - https://www.nairaland.com/7122544/breaking-news-norway-no-longer

Imagine my surprise this morning when I heard the news that the Norwegian Gambling Authority is giving free grants to "all religious organizations" in Norway including Jehovahs Witnesses.

In this thread, I will show you proof from the official website of the Norwegian Gambling Authority, and show with proof why it is quite strange that Jehovahs Witnesses are accepting free money from a Gambling Authority.

Let us begin.

What are some of the traits that we must “watch out” for? Self-righteous individuals usually “speak, and stand, and look as if they had never done a wrong,” explains the Encyclopædia of Religion and Ethics. The self-righteous are also boastful and self-promoting, which was a major problem with the Pharisees.


IN THE first century, the Pharisees enjoyed the good reputation of being righteous worshipers of God. They were earnest students of the Scriptures and prayed frequently. Some people viewed them as being gentle and reasonable. Jewish historian Josephus wrote: “The Pharisees are affectionate to each other and cultivate harmonious relations with the community.” No wonder they were probably the most respected and highly regarded individuals in Jewish society at that time!

However, today the word “Pharisaic” and related terms are derogatory, synonymous with sanctimonious, self-righteous, holier-than-thou, overpious, and giving lip service. Why did the Pharisees lose their good name?

It was because, unlike most Jews, Jesus Christ was not deceived by the Pharisees’ outer appearance. He compared them to “whitewashed graves, which outwardly indeed appear beautiful but inside are full of dead men’s bones and of every sort of uncleanness.”​—Matthew 23:27.
