Jehovah's Witnesses publish a book titled: "WHAT DOES THE BIBLE REALLY TEACH?"
You would do well to obtain a free copy and read it with an open mind or you can go on line to www.jw.org/publications and you can read it on line.
Enjoy
So if it isn't Watchtower spam, you don't read it. The GB must be so proud of you.

And just what part of the Bible are you referring to????
Here is Exodus 32:27 again from your NWT. Tell us what it "really" says, KF.

He now said to them:“This is what Jehovah the God of Israel has said,‘Put each one of YOU his sword on his side. Pass through and return from gate to gate in the camp and kill each one his brother and each one his fellow and each one his intimate acquaintance.’” 28 And the sons of Le&#8242;vi proceeded to do as Moses had said, so that there fell of the people on that day about three thousand men. 29 And Moses went on to say:“Fill YOUR hand today with power for Jehovah, because each one of YOU is against his own son and his own brother, and that he may confer a blessing upon YOU today.”

There is no guarantee that a transfusion will save a life. Why don't you publish information on how many have been killed by giving a transfusion? WHY?
There is no guarantee that an airline will get you to a destination on time. Ban airports? How many people die in car crashes? Ban automobiles? What are the stats on bathroom related injuries? Ban indoor plumbing!!! How many cases of illness are reported annually from eating blutwurst compared to eating E. Coli tainted vegetables? You haven't said... WHY?
Would you care to publish how many are saved by transfusions compared to die from them? No, the GB hasn't told you to.

You do not KNOW all of them.

Does your cult encourage the flock to mingle with dissenters? NO, quite the opposite. Why do you bear false witness against Rose_NoHo's experience?
Isn't it you who demands "TRUST ME" with reams of Watchtower spam?

Atheists have no illusions about dissuading you from your faith.
It is the seekers after knowledge, the unsure and uncommitted, the "fence sitters" if you will, that we are addressing. They come by and read this forum. They listen to the likes of you and Yaa...and they listen to us. They consider what reasoning seems best to them.
THAT is what we do ...and why we do it.

Welcome Rose! I have seen you on a few other forums.
Nice to have another voice for sanity and reason here.
Be aware that you will be accused of being me or Mike or lol or Lodi.
The "believers" here aren't too bright.
They believe that there can't be more than 2 or at best, 3 atheists posting here.
Anywhoooo, Welcome!

Decorating the xmas tree is one of my least tasks - ranking just above packing it up again. I'd rather string outside lights in a cold rain. I do enjoy the spirit of sharing that accompanies the season, tho. That's probably yet another thing that sets me at odds with tea party sistas and retired bankers.

Once again, don't legislate until you have been in a classroom and understand what goes on in a school. Elementary teachers have too much to teach in a year as it is. Put your kids into private school or home school them if this is what you want.

The part where you say, "he could not be your friend if you did not convert". We do not use such leverage as such to gain converts!
Conversion is between you and God!
I know you are not telling the truth. You would not admit it on topix because the other JW's would admonish you for apostasy. So I will show evidence that backs up Rose NoHo claim.

No Part of the World: How Jehovah’s Witnesses Perform the Boundaries of their Community

Joseph Blankholm,
Columbia University

Jehovah’s Witnesses advise their membership against having any unnecessary association with Worldly people, which often includes coworkers and classmates. Commonly cited at their meetings
and in their Bible literature is 1 Corinthians 15:33:“Do not be misled

Here is more proof: NOTICE THE LAST PARAGRAPH!
What Is a Bible Study?
Jehovah’s Witnesses offer a Bible study program that answers many questions, including:
• Who is God?
• Does God really care about me?
• How can I improve my marriage?
• How can I find happiness in life?
Below you will find answers to frequently asked questions about our Bible study program.
What is the format of the study course? We take such topics as “God” or “marriage” and examine different Bible verses that relate to the subject. By comparing them, we see what the Bible as a whole says about the topic, and in this way we let the Bible interpret itself.
To assist us in studying the Bible, we use the book What Does the Bible Really Teach? This book clearly presents, among other subjects, what the Bible really says about God, Jesus, and our future.
How much does a Bible study cost? The study is free, and there is no charge for the study material.
How long are the study sessions? Many people set aside an hour or so each week to study the Bible with us. But the length of the study is flexible. We’ll adapt it to your schedule.
What happens when I request a Bible study? When you request a Bible study, one of Jehovah’s Witnesses will visit you at a time and place convenient for you. He or she will take a few minutes to demonstrate our study program. If you like it, you can continue.
NOTICE:
If I accept a Bible study, do I have to become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses? No. Jehovah’s Witnesses love teaching people about the Bible, but we never force anyone to become a member of our religion. Rather, we respectfully present what the Bible says, recognizing that each person has the right to choose what he or she will believe.—1 Peter 3:15.
Go on line to: www jw.org to make a request for a Bible study.
They sure do force you to stay a member tho. They make their children get baptized at an early age, I've seen them baptized as young as 12 before. The kids do it willingly, wanting to make their parents proud and if you're a teenager who hasn't been baptized yet they you're considered spiritually weak and people start to talk about you.

When you turn 18 and decide you want to leave the JWs then they threaten you with losing all your friends and family and that's what happens. They dissfellowship you and you lose every friend and family member that's a JW. They are not allowed to even send you an email to see how you're doing.

That's one of my problems with the JWs, they let children make an adult decision that effects them the rest of their lives. Kids don't understand that their parents will stop loving them if the decide they don't want to be a JW or if they just don't believe in the crap. They claim they do it because they love their child and they want them to come back but that's BS, actions speak louder than words. Not to mention when you have an 18 year old child that lost everything they ever knew then they usually end up turning to drugs or just killing themselves. The suicide rate is high among these young adults.

The JWs are an evil cult that hurts children. Stay away from them. How can anyone stop loving their child because they don't want to be in the same religion as their parents?

As far as blood transfusions see Leviticus 17:11-14 No soul of YOU must eat blood and no alien resident who is residing as an alien in YOUR midst should eat blood.”
and Acts 15: 28,29 ;For the holy spirit and we ourselves have favored adding no further burden to YOU, except these necessary things, 29 ;to keep abstaining from things sacrificed to idols and FROM BLOOD and from things strangled and from fornication. If YOU carefully keep yourselves from these things, YOU will prosper. Good health to YOU!”
Notice the Bible put Transfusions and eating blood in bad company right along with idol worship and fornication.
Why would the Bible say to abstain from blood and then conclude by saying, "Good health to you? You are not the only one who thinks you/they know more than God.
Jehovah Witnesses due take blood. Example would be for kidney dialysis. The blood leaves the body will go into a machine to be cleaned then transferred back to the body. So you are now eating your own blood. Yummy.

You have presented what your supposedly objectives are , but ,were unable to present any accomplishments
Let us look at what atheists have accoplished on this website.

Satanic Priest; by his own admission on harlan topix,while posting under jimmy rants , confessed that he had used 6 different monikers,
He has been banned from Topix for violating rules, profanity
After being banned , he posted on this thread one more time under one of his monikers APPLACHA .Never was heard from again
Skeptacal spektakals,,, Banned
UMM Banned
Yiago ,,,Either banned or possibly detained in a mental institution
Yiago claimed that he found evidence that Michael Jackson was prophesied in the Bible.
Said the same thing about King Kong.
Mentally confused and known for his condoning profanity.
For the tremendous amount of time , energy and effort that you all dedicate to posting on this thread you have accomplished zilch
and managed to get yourselves banned for unruly and indecent behaviour.
That is how your human nature has rewarded you.
