Proverbs 1:22 http://www.jw.org/en/
+ 22 “How long will you inexperienced ones love inexperience? How long will you ridiculers take pleasure in ridicule? And how long will you foolish ones hate knowledge?+ 23 Respond to my reproof.*+ Then I will pour out my spirit for you; I will make my words known to you.+ 24 Because I called out, but you kept refusing, I stretched out my hand, but no one was paying attention.+ 25 You kept neglecting all my advice
And rejecting my reproof.

Proverbs 1: 27 http://www.jw.org/en/
When distress and trouble come upon you. 28 At that time they will keep calling me, but I will not answer; They will eagerly look for me, but they will not find me,+ 29 Because they hated knowledge,+ And they did not choose to fear Jehovah.+ 30 They refused my advice; They disrespected all my reproof. 31 So they will bear the consequences* of their way,+ And they will be glutted with their own counsel.* 32 For the waywardness of the inexperienced will kill them, And the complacency of fools will destroy them. 33 But the one listening to me will dwell in security+ And be undisturbed by the dread of calamity.”

Proverbs 1:1 http://www.jw.org/en/
The proverbs of Sol′o·mon,+ the son of David,+ the king of Israel:+ 2 To learn* wisdom+ and discipline; To understand wise sayings;
3 To acquire the discipline+ that gives insight, Righteousness,+ good judgment,*+ and uprightness;* 4 To impart shrewdness+ to the inexperienced; To give a young man knowledge and thinking ability.+ 5 A wise person listens and takes in more instruction;+ A man of understanding acquires skillful direction*+ 6 To understand a proverb and a puzzling saying,* The words of the wise and their riddles.+ 7 The fear of* Jehovah is the beginning of knowledge.+ Only fools despise wisdom and discipline.+

Matthew 23:28 http://www.jw.org/en/
28 In the same way, on the outside you appear righteous to men, but inside you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.+ 29 “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!+ because you build the graves of the prophets and decorate the tombs* of the righteous ones,+ 30 and you say,‘If we had lived in the days of our forefathers, we would not have shared with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ 31 Therefore, you are testifying against yourselves that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets.+ 32 Well, then, fill up the measure of your forefathers. 33 “Serpents, offspring of vipers,+ how will you flee from the judgment of Ge·hen′na?*

Matthew 23:34 http://www.jw.org/en/
+ 34 For this reason, I am sending to you prophets+ and wise men and public instructors.+ Some of them you will kill+ and execute on stakes, and some of them you will scourge+ in your synagogues and persecute+ from city to city, 35 so that there may come upon you all the righteous blood spilled on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel+ to the blood of Zech·a·ri′ah son of Bar·a·chi′ah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar.+ 36 Truly I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation. 37 “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the killer of the prophets and stoner of those sent to her+—how often I wanted to gather your children together the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings! But you did not want it.+ 38 Look! Your house is abandoned to you.*+ 39 For I say to you, you will by no means see me from now until you say,‘Blessed is the one who comes in Jehovah’s* name!’”+

Luke 11:37 http://www.jw.org/en/
37 When he had said this, a Pharisee asked him to dine with him. So he went in and reclined at the table. 38 However, the Pharisee was surprised at seeing that he did not first wash* before the dinner.+ 39 But the Lord said to him:“Now you Pharisees, you cleanse the outside of the cup and dish, but inside you are full of greediness and wickedness.+ 40 Unreasonable ones! The one who made the outside made also the inside, did he not? 41 But give as gifts of mercy* the things that are from within, and look! everything about you will be clean. 42 But woe to you Pharisees, because you give the tenth of the mint and of the rue and of every other garden herb,*+ but you disregard the justice and the love of God! These things you were under obligation to do, but not to disregard those other things.+ 43 Woe to you Pharisees, because you love the front* seats in the synagogues and the greetings in the marketplaces!+ 44 Woe to you, because you are as those graves* that are not clearly visible,*+ that men walk on and do not know it!”

Luke 11:45 http://www.jw.org/en/
45 In reply one of those versed in the Law said to him:“Teacher, in saying these things, you insult us also.” 46 Then he said:“Woe also to you who are versed in the Law, because you load men down with loads hard to carry, but you yourselves do not touch the loads with one of your fingers!+ 47 “Woe to you, because you build the tombs* of the prophets, but your forefathers killed them!+ 48 Certainly you are witnesses of the deeds of your forefathers, and yet you approve of them, for they killed the prophets+ but you are building their tombs.

Luke 11:49 http://www.jw.org/en/
49 That is why the wisdom of God also said:‘I will send prophets and apostles to them, and they will kill and persecute some of them, 50 so that the blood of all the prophets spilled from the founding of the world may be charged against* this generation,+ 51 from the blood of Abel+ down to the blood of Zech·a·ri′ah, who was killed between the altar and the house.’*+ Yes, I tell you, it will be charged against* this generation. 52 “Woe to you who are versed in the Law, because you took away the key of knowledge. You yourselves did not go in, and you hinder those going in!”+ 53 So when he went out from there, the scribes and the Pharisees began to put extreme pressure on him and to ply him with many more questions, 54 lying in wait for him to catch him in something he might say.+
#11 Jul 22, 2014
Matthew 5:11 http://www.jw.org/en/
11 “Happy are you when people reproach you+ and persecute you+ and lyingly say every sort of wicked thing against you for my sake.+ 12 Rejoice and be overjoyed,+ since your reward+ is great in the heavens, for in that way they persecuted the prophets prior to you.+
#12 Jul 22, 2014
1 Peter 4:12 http://www.jw.org/en/
12 Beloved ones, do not be surprised about the fiery trials that you are experiencing,+ as though something strange were happening to you. 13 On the contrary, go on rejoicing+ over the extent to which you are sharers in the sufferings of the Christ,+ so that you may rejoice and be overjoyed also during the revelation of his glory.+ 14 If you are being reproached* for the name of Christ, you are happy,+ because the spirit of glory, yes, the spirit of God, is resting upon you.

Allow me to clear up the confusion you have, you are definitely in darkness, that means ignorance. John 17:3
You must obey Jesus, not worship Jesus. John4:24. Jesus is our example to follow, to imitate his personality and worship Jehovah God the way he did, 1 Peter 2:21. the vast majority of the Jews could not give up their religion to follow the new way, and today people are of that same attitude.
If you cling to the religions of this world you will perish with this world, this warning message has been preached since before 1914, unless you are separate from the traditions and customs and holidays of this world, you will not have the approval of our reigning King Jesus, to survive the coming end of this world as we know it.

Now the Festival of the Unleavened Bread, which is called Passover,+ was getting near.+ 2 And the chief priests and the scribes were looking for an effective way to get rid of him,+ because they were afraid of the people.+ 3 Then Satan entered into Judas, the one called Is·car′i·ot, who was numbered among the Twelve,+ 4 and he went off and talked with the chief priests and temple captains about how to betray him to them.+ 5 They were delighted at this and agreed to give him silver money.+ 6 So he consented and began looking for a good opportunity to betray him to them without a crowd around.

http://www.jw.org/en/jehovahs-witnesses/faq/a... Are Jehovah’s Witnesses Christians?
Yes. We are Christians for the following reasons:
•We try to follow closely the teachings and behavior of Jesus Christ.—1 Peter 2:21.
•We believe that Jesus is the key to salvation, that “there is not another name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must get saved.”—Acts 4:12.
•When people become Jehovah’s Witnesses, they are baptized in the name of Jesus.—Matthew 28:18, 19.
•We offer our prayers in Jesus’ name.—John 15:16.
•We believe that Jesus is the Head, or the one appointed to have authority, over every man.—1 Corinthians 11:3.
#17 Jul 22, 2014
Yes. We are Christians for the following reasons:
However, in a number of ways, we are different from other religious groups that are called Christian. For example, we believe that the Bible teaches that Jesus is the Son of God, not part of a Trinity.(Mark 12:29) We do not believe that the soul is immortal, that there is any basis in Scripture for saying that God tortures people in an everlasting hell, or that those who take the lead in religious activities should have titles that elevate them above others.—Ecclesiastes 9:5; Ezekiel 18:4; Matthew 23:8-10.

Why Don’t Jehovah’s Witnesses Celebrate Christmas?
Myth: The reason why Jehovah’s Witnesses do not celebrate Christmas is that they do not believe in Jesus.
Fact: We are Christians. We believe that salvation comes only through Jesus Christ.—Acts 4:12.
Myth: You divide families by teaching members not to celebrate Christmas.
Fact: We care deeply about families, and we use the Bible to help build stronger families.
Myth: You miss out on the “Christmas spirit” of generosity, peace on earth, and goodwill toward men.
Fact: We strive to be generous and peaceable every day.(Proverbs 11:25; Romans 12:18) For example, the way we conduct our meetings and preach is in harmony with Jesus’ instruction:“"You received free, give free."”(Matthew 10:8) In addition, we direct attention to God’s Kingdom as the true hope for peace on earth.—Matthew 10:7.
#19 Jul 22, 2014
Why don’t Jehovah’s Witnesses celebrate Christmas?
Jesus commanded that we commemorate his death, not his birth.—Luke 22:19, 20.
Jesus’ apostles and early disciples did not celebrate Christmas. The New Catholic Encyclopedia says that “"the Nativity feast was instituted no earlier than 243 [C.E.],"” more than a century after the last of the apostles died.
There is no proof that Jesus was born on December 25; his birth date is not recorded in the Bible.
We believe that Christmas is not approved by God because it is rooted in pagan customs and rites.—2 Corinthians 6:17.
#20 Jul 22, 2014
Why make Christmas an issue?
Many still celebrate Christmas despite knowing about its pagan roots and lack of support from the Bible. Such persons could ask: Why should Christians take such an unpopular stance? Why make it an issue?
The Bible encourages us to think for ourselves, to use our “"power of reason."”(Romans 12:1, 2) It teaches us to value the truth.(John 4:23, 24) So while we are interested in how others view us, we adhere to Bible principles even if it means that we become unpopular.
Although we choose not to celebrate Christmas ourselves, we respect each person’s right to decide for himself in this matter. We do not interfere in the Christmas celebrations of others.
