Here's a question for the believers among us. A sincere question.
I like good stories. I appreciate mythology. I can use a phrase like "That was harder than the Labors of Hercules." and mean it.
Because I don't need Hercules to be *real* to find some meaning in the stories.
Do you feel the need for the god of the Bible to be *real* or can you get meaning out of the Christian tradition while simultaneously understanding that it is mythology, not history?
No!
We do not need God to be real...
Just Glad He is!
Amen!

And I may have misunderstood some of your post. Not sure if you are stating that the bible should be forced on children or not.
I mainly believe that if we mind our own business instead of others business than we would get along much better
Tisk tisk...
See, you don't even have the Golden rule right!
"Do unto others, as you'd have them do to you!"
I will explain the differences.
"Do unto others as they have done unto you."
That is Revengeful... Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord!
Say yer on the 405, and the guy behind you accidently bumps
yer car... you get mad, and put it in reverse, and bump him
back! This happens a few times, and you both get out of your
cars, guns drawn, and blazzing...
A wild shot kills a child you say you want to protect...
All because... You did what was done to you...
instead of "FORGIVING" as you should have!
Doing as you'd want someone to do to you...
If yer hungry, need gas for yer car ti get to a
Dr's appointment, or a job interview...
Go find a good church, and you will receive Grace,
and what you are in need of... Not vengeance!

There are several reasons that convences us that we do indeed have the truth! One is we base everything we teach on God's word the Bible. John 8:31,32 17:3 17:17 and 1John 5:19
ARE YOU A GENUINE CHRISTIAN?
It is vital for each person who claims to be a Christian to answer this question positively. Why? Because God’s approval depends thereon. Christianity is not merely a belief or a label, but a way of life. Does your way of life reflect Christ’s example? Does your religious practice match the Biblical quality of the early Christians?
The apostle Paul invites us:“Put yourselves to the proof, to see whether you are holding the Faith. Test yourselves.”(2 Corinthians 13:5, The Twentieth Century New Testament) To this end, we invite you to check the following short list, while looking up the cited scriptures in your own Bible.
1. Do you participate in national or political loyalties that cause divisions among professed Christians?—1 Corinthians 1:10; John 18:36; James 1:27.
2. How do you define Christian love?—1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
3. Do you, in practice, endeavor to show true neighbor love? How?—Matthew 22:39; John 13:34, 35.
4. Are you kind, tenderly compassionate and forgiving toward others?—Ephesians 4:31; Romans 12:10.
5. In your daily life, do you avoid lying, stealing, cheating and the use of obscene and abusive language?—Ephesians 5:3-5; 4:25-31.
6. Are you inclined to think that sexual morality is of minor importance?—Mark 7:20-23.
7. Do you tend to excesses in eating and drinking?—Proverbs 23:20, 21; Ephesians 5:18.
8. Do you try to communicate true Christian faith to others by word and deed?—Romans 10:9, 10; 1 Corinthians 9:16.
At what conclusion do you arrive? Do true Christians really exist today? Do you know of any who earnestly try to live like Christ and at the same time make a real effort to communicate their Christian belief and way of life to their neighbors? Does your own religion in fact teach and practice genuine Christianity? Or is this just an attractive label or impressive signature?
If you do not already know them personally, we suggest you take a closer look at Jehovah’s Witnesses in your vicinity and see if they are conscientiously endeavoring to measure up to the Bible standards considered above. If you do not know where they are located, we will be glad to help you to get in touch with them.—Isaiah 43:10-12; Acts 11:26.

No, not better.
The Bible is the word of the catholic councils. The NWT is the word of Fredrick Franz. The Watchtower is the word of your Governing Board.

But he choses to kill instead of forgiving.

Actually, Martin just stated that the Catholic Church was wrong and that he knew what should be better. He didn't claim to restore the church to Jesus' standard. Similar to how Roger Williams and John Wesley began their churches. Both had made the comment that they knew the actual church of Christ was no longer existent but they wanted to try to get as close as possible.(Roger founded the Baptist church in America, John founded he Methodist and eventually the Wesleyan church). Roger even said that unless angels from Heaven come down to restore it, it would not be back on earth.
Interestingly, we believe that an angel visited Joseph to guide him to the record. We also believe that the priesthood power was restored by the resurrected apostles of Jesus Christ: Peter, James, and John. They came and laid their hands on Joseph's head to do so. This is a restoration. The others could be called a reformation because there was no intervention from Heavenly visitors.
I'm not near a computer. I'll get back to you on evidence that I have run across on apologetic websites.
"they knew the actual church of Christ was no longer existent"
Really???
What were Christ's words on this subject?
Do you think He lied?
NO!
In the verses I quoted you earlier...
It's the simplicity of the Gospel...
So even "They" could receive it... IF they wanted!
No extra books, magic plates, or whatever... Just Christ!

Yer right about the "Golden Rule," YaA - except you know full well that Christians pick and choose when to use the Exodus "eye for an eye" or the Matthew "eye for an eye" - it all boils down to who and what the offender is.

The Governing Board blame Fredrick Franz brother Raymond for the failed 1975 prophesy about armageddon.

The 15 May 1980 issue of The Watchtower issued a statement of regret that its assertions of probability of Armageddon arriving before 1975 had "apparently overshadowed the cautionary ones and contributed to a buildup of expectation already initiated."[14] It told disappointed Jehovah's Witnesses, "including persons having to do with the publication of the information that contributed to the buildup of hopes centred on that date" to "concentrate on adjusting his viewpoint".[15] This statement, which placed blame for the disappointment about 1975 on Raymond Franz and his writing committee, precipitated a purge of that committee and eventual disfellowshipping of its sometime Chairman.[16] On May 8 1980 Franz was told that he had been implicated as an apostate.

Jesus never wrote anything - or if he did, "God" saw fit to destroy every trace of reference or evidence.

LOL! No it is not. Adding a pointless preamble to what you said before and then repeating what you said before does nothing. I'm curious about this too. Why are you so convinced (note the spelling by the way) that what you believe is the truth? I believe this is the part where you're supposed to start reciting fulfilled prophecies isn't it? You're not following your script.

All fundies are arrogant in my opinion, but JWs have the most hubris. You believe you have logic and data on your side, but when push comes to shove you will deflect and avoid like the rest of your ilk.

No doubt. When are they supposed to use "eye for an eye" and when are they supposed to "turn the other cheek"?
