Jesus said by there fruits you will recognize them. (Matt. 7:16) and what I have read on here there are a lot of people tearing down and being negative rather than encouraging. Of course there are sick individuals in all religions so don't just take a few stories out of millions and apply it to everyone. If God were to do the same thing you were doing than he would just judge the entire human race as failures since we all sin. Give them a chance and if you don't agree with them don't hate them for having the same convictions about something that you probably have about something important in your life.

So what are you doing here? Trying to convince yourself?
Anyone can deliberately read the Bible in such a way as to cause contradictions. But the AMAZING thing about the Bible is that it can be read in such a way that NO contradictions exist.
So there is no proof of any contradictions. Furthermore it is a miracle that a non-contradictory understanding is possible with a book written over thousands of years.

Stop those nagging doubts!
Then that must mean unicorns, ghosts, and witches exist.

Look, believe in a the bible, and god, and whatnot, I have no problem with that. But call it what it is - faith, belief, a calling. There is no proof or actual evidence that any of it is true.

The proof is all around us. We didn't get here by accident.

When I was in the Nay, there was a cook who had truck with 2 bumper stickers. One said "I brake for animals." The other said "I accelerate for Jehovah's Witness." True story.

<quoted text>The ONLY THING I DISAGREE WITH YOU ON IS:
"their faith does place a great emphasis on the role of Christ"
THE WTS HAS A YEARLY REVENUE OF 950 MILLION DOLLARS AND HAVE NOT ONE CHARITY TO HELP THE POOR AND NEEDY,
THEY DO NOT EVEN HAVE A CHARITY FOR THEIR OWN BROTHERS AND SISTERS.
CHRIST WOULD NEVER CONDONE A BUNCH OF OLD MEN HOARDING RICHES IN BANK ACCOUNTS.
Think before you type, maybe do some research.. After the Haiti quakes the Witnesses were among the first group of rescuers setting up medical/surgical tents manned by WITNESSES. After Katrina, the Witnesses helped to rebuild/repair numerous homes not only for fellow Witnesses but others as well. After the horrific Nashville Floods, there were over 400 witnesses who volunteered to help others rebuild/repair their homes.They opened up their own homes to feed and shelter others who were left homeless They were some of the LAST to leave.
And IF you had actually done some research, you would know that all the monies our organization receives it uses for the ministry work NOT to build elaborate cathedrals filled with golden idols, pay "ministers" elaborate salaries so that they can live in mansions while their parishioners starve or support political careers. WE ARE NOT YOUR ENEMY! SATAN IS!!

They shouldnt be put in charge of anything else, thats for sure.
I doubt very seriously that the person who posted this (about the JWs will be ruling the earth) is really a witness and if they are, they are in dire need of counseling by the Elders because that is NOT what we teach!!! Most of Jesus' original Disciples along with other "anointed ones" will join Jesus as co-rulers of this earth.(Rev 20:4-6) There were no JWs during this time of history so this person's logic, if you want to cal it that, is skewed.. to say the least.

Why don't you go and tell the elders of all the cheaters and liars. Not to mention one who ask to hack a college website in order to take his exam (Andy) so he doesn't have to drive to Nashville. Most of the witnesses are not who they portray to be.You all hold crap over each others head in order to stay in the hall but yet you aren't holding up to what you have been taught. Full of cheaters,liars,drunks, and hypocrites in the Kingdom Hall so why not join, right? Those JW's on topix would probably be in trouble for actually using the internet and being on a worldly site with non-believers. Don't y'all have field service to do? I dont think topix counts as hours! Thanks for bringing money to Cookeville.
