Jehovah's witnesses invite anyone to investigate and examine the organizational procedure required to get baptized and have the privilege to be named Jehovah's witness.
Acts 15:14

You will find that a thorough Bible study education is required, taking as many as two years or less. It is only the person who is desirous of knowing the true God Jehovah that will continue in their study and dedicate their life to God as Jesus did and taught his followers.

Standard "news service"office talking points

The reporter just printed the information provided

Stated jw claim to be the truth

note he didn't agree just let it fly as it was

This article can be dropped in any city paper anywhere in the country

Just standard wt stuff

Note the positive spin from news service which is better than years past

God will restore the earth Instead of god will Destroy all those here in the city who don't accept our explanation of scripture

Those types of comments for decades got jw in trouble with local churches

Wt realized it was not politically correct

So they fell in line.

Lol

So you all recall the wt that said as we get deeper into the time of the end the message will congel and become hard hitting like being pelted

Instead wt has gone soft on us

HOW LONG did it take for these people to get SAVED and baptised?....

25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the jail were shaken, and immediately all the doors were opened, and everyone’s chains came loose. 27 When the jailer woke up and saw the doors of the prison open, he drew his sword and was going to kill himself, since he thought the prisoners had escaped.
28 But Paul called out in a loud voice,“Don’t harm yourself, because all of us are here!”
29 Then the jailer called for lights, rushed in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. 30 Then he escorted them out and said,“Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
31 So they said,“Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved—you and your household.” 32 Then they spoke the message of the Lord to him along with everyone in his house. 33 He took them the same hour of the night and washed their wounds. Right away he and all his family were baptized. 34 He brought them up into his house, set a meal before them, and rejoiced because he had believed God with his entire household.
Acts 16:25-34

"It takes a committee how many minutes or hours to disfellowship someone?"

Sometimes it takes them less than an hour, sometimes it takes 5 or 6 hours but it never takes them more than 24 hours to boot someone out of the Jehovah's Witnesses.

"And how many years of torment, torture and criminal abuse to reinstate them?"

One disfellowshiped brother faithfully attended meetings at my hall for over 10 years after he was booted to the curb. One of the elders on his JC said that he would never be reinstated as long as he was an elder.

Wait a second, I though that the elder who came here after my mother passed away,said that it was a six month study and if they didn't progress to baptism they stopped. Now maybe I misunderstood him, but it sure seemed like that is what he was saying.

I do know that since leaving the JW religion, I now know more about the bible than I ever did. I have learned it on my own without the aid of a magazine or a book, and done my own research and didn't leave it up to someone else to do it for me. You do learn so much more doing it yourself.

Noticed that you use "Christian witness" in your handle, TCW. Are you affiliated with the schismatic Jehovah's Christian Witnesses in Seattle, or the mainline JWs headquartered in New York?

There is only one world wide congregation of Jehovah's witnesses, all 8 million are under the direction of the governing body in New York. All are united and all teaching the same truth or faith, anyone teaching a different truth is not acceptable to Jehovah God or his reigning King Jesus.
1Timothy 2:4,5

You cannot profess to be a true Christian and not love your fellowman and be at peace with all men.
Jesus Christ as King in heaven is Prince of Peace and will rule over this earth in peace very soon now.

I have 2 questions for you.

1. How long have you been a baptised Jehovah's Witness?

2. Can you provide any proof that your statement, "All are united and all teaching the same truth or faith, anyone teaching a different truth is not acceptable to Jehovah God or his reigning King Jesus." is true?

Thanks.

. What does all this have to do with the fact that Paul was telling the people ..that they must be united in the fact.. that they were followers of Christ..??? Meaning the person that baptized you..Church.. etc..was only doing a service...

TCW, first of all you must prove that JW are the only true religion, then you must prove that Jesus chose them to be that. Once you prove this, then you will be right. Until that time, it is only men who have appointed themselves to rule over 8 million blinded people to the fact that Jesus is their only Savior. When you say that people must be a JW to be saved, you are taking away from JESUS what he did for us when he suffered and died. God did not send a religion to save us, he did not send an organization, he did not appoint men who call themselves the Mouth piece of God. God sent his son Jesus Christ to die for our sins, he made him our Savior, he is the ONLY WAY, the ONLY TRUTH, and the ONLY LIFE. Jesus is the ONLY way to get to the father. Please open your eyes to the truth of the bible, not to what men say is true.
You have been ask a number of times to show us the scriptures that say that we must be a JW to be saved, show me a scripture that says that a Governing body will rule over JWs. They even have the F&DS present now, and the bible tells us it is not their time yet. Pray for the Holy Spirit to open your eyes and heart so that you can see and understand that Jesus is your only Savior. No religion, no organization, no group of men have anything to do with your salvation.

Supposing you have a debilitating disease, and your doctor tells you that only one surgery can help you to gain your health back, and he is the only doctor can perform that surgery, but you do not like his personality and you do not believe him.

What will make you bend to that surgery? Isn't it the fact that no one else has the solution for your happiness, it is the same with Jehovah's witnesses, we are telling people to read their Bible and believe the Bible, and do what the Bible is telling us in these last days, before the end of this world gets here.

All those Jews had to do to get saved, was believe in Jesus, and the Gentiles had to accept the Scriptures as the only authority to live by, as taught in the Law of Christ, not the Law of Moses.

Today people have very little time left to save their life, because no one can survive Armageddon unless you are a servant of Jehovah God's Kingdom government, with Jesus as our ruling King today.

To survive the end of this world and inherit a clean earth to be restored to a paradise, to have the hope of living forever in peace and happiness, no more tears ever again. This good news has been preached throughout the whole world by Jehovah's witnesses since 1914, the start of the last days of this world as we know it.

Do not argue or debate Scripture, study your Bible with Jehovah's witnesses, and if you fight this truth, you are fighting against Jehovah God and you will lose.
Jehovah God does not want anyone to be destroyed forever at Armageddon, you must be humble and meek and obedient to the direction Jesus is giving us today.

I would request proof he was a surgeon by his license. Can your GB aka F&DS prove they are who they say they are? NO. You just follow them blindly believing every thing they say, without one ounce of proof, but there are many proofs that they are not who they say by their false prophecies.

The only solution for happiness is giving your life to the Lord, not to a religion. I cannot believe you even said this. The bible tells us to come to Jesus for salvation, it does not tell us to go to any religion or organization. Again I ask you for biblical proof of what you just said.

There was a reason for how this happened, and if you read your bible, you will see why.

You are right, there is very little time left for people to gain salvation, but the sad thing is, you are directing them to a religion, or organization for that salvation, again, where is that in the bible. My bible says that we are to believe in Jesus Christ to gain eternal life, I have shown you the scriptures a few time, yet you refuse to accept them and still hang onto the lie that a religion or organization can save you.

A person does not have to be a JW to have Jehovah, I have him with me each and every day of my life. No one can take him from me, not you, not the GB aka F&DS, NO ONE.

If we want to live forever, the way to do that is to give our lives to Jesus Christ, not to a religion. Please read a bible, please pray for understanding of how you obtain salvation. Please pray for the Holy Spirit to enter your heart and mind and show you the correct way to be saved.

You're right Jesus is THE ONLY WAY .He done all the was required and no one can add anything to it .
(1 Corinthians 3:11) "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
(Acts 4:12) "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
(John 1:12) "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:"
(John 10:9) " I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture."

most of what you have said is true, and I do believe you are one of the very few JW here that are very sincere.

However the WT has a history of deception, they have been hijacked by Satan, why? because there are honest hearted sheep within, this is very tricky you have to look at the facts about the religion, the scriptures have the answer, the GB of the WT are corrupted they have taken the seat of moses and have already begun to rule. the GB of the WT are not appointed, they have no scriptural backing and are misleading the flock.

They don't realize that they have become just like the world, followers of men. Nowhere in the Scriptures has Jehovah required his people to put their full confidence in any man.(Ps. 146:3,4; Jer. 17:5; Ro. 3:4)

The GB likes to compare themselves to Moses, and that Jehovah required the people to listen to him and obey him; and most of the brothers in the congregations accept that. But Moses did not picture any governing body. He pictured Jesus, the greater Moses.(Heb. 1:1,2; 3:2-6) In wanting to compare themselves to Moses they have become just like Korah, Dathan and Abiram, who also persuaded others to follow them. But their end will be the same as those earlier rebels.

No one can add to what Christ did so when someone says you need to belong to our religion they lie .We need to belong to CHRIST period .
(John 10:9) " I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture."
(John 10:1) " Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber."
We cannot enter in by means of a religion or some organization we enter in by CHRIST who bought us with His own blood or we are a thief and robber there is no other way or CHRIST PLUS something it is CHRIST ALONE plus nothing , he paid the price , he shed the blood his sacrifice was the only thing approved by the Father that can save us period .
