1 Kings 3:24
24 The king said:“Bring me a sword.” So they brought a sword to the king. 25 The king then said:“Cut the living child in two, and give half to one woman and half to the other.” 26 At once the woman whose son was the living one pleaded with the king, for her compassions were stirred toward her son. She said:“Please, my lord! You should give her the living child! By no means put him to death!” But the other woman was saying:“He will be neither mine nor yours! Let them cut him in two!” 27 At that the king answered:“Give the living child to the first woman! By no means put him to death, for she is his mother.” 28 So all Israel heard about the judgment that the king had handed down, and they were in awe* of the king,+ for they saw that the wisdom of God was with him to execute justice.+

Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Feel That They Are the Only People Who Will Be Saved?

No. Many millions who lived in centuries past and who weren’t Jehovah’s Witnesses will have an opportunity for salvation. The Bible explains that in God’s promised new world,“there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.”(Acts 24:15) Additionally, many now living may yet begin to serve God, and they too will gain salvation. In any case, it’s not our job to judge who will or won’t be saved. That assignment rests squarely in Jesus’ hands.—John 5:22, 27.

Ephesians 4:5
+ 4 One body there is,+ and one spirit,+ just as you were called to the one hope+ of your calling; 5 one Lord,+ one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.
You are in another faith; they do not know Jehovah and they believe in Hellfire and the things of the world. You left Jehovah; he did not leave you.
Your congregation is still their; of Jehovah's Witnesses. It's in your hands.
Prayer and association is your answer. Your mental state not good.
I did not leave Jehovah, Jehovah is not a religion or any organization, and surely not men. He is God, he would not leave a person who loves Him and His Son. When you realize this, maybe then you can move forward.

You do not believe there is one anyting, you believe it takes a religion, a organization, and men who call themselves the GB aka F&DS to gain salvation. Please show me proof of that from the bible.

I am not in another faith, I believe in Jehovah and Jesus Christ. I love them and have dedicated my life to living for them. You on the other hand have dedicated your life to a religion, a organization and to men. Which one does the bible recognize?

SOS, my mental state is in a lot better state than yours. I don't go around pretending to be someone else. You really should seek help.

This is one of the cases that they use special wording that a worldly person would not understand. The word opportunity means....If they accept the religion of Jehovahs witnesses and obey, submit, and support the GB aka F&DS. If they do not do this, they will be killed by Jehovah. Also see the line about those now living MAY YET begin to serve God? They mean serve the GB aka F&DS. You have to know how to read between the lines with anything the GB aka F&DS writes.

only people saved at Armageddon should be the question, YES they do believe that only they will be saved at Armageddon.

Only Jehovah's Witnesses, those of the anointed remnant and the "great crowd," as a united organization under the protection of the Supreme Organizer, have any Scriptural hope of surviving the impending end of this doomed system dominated by Satan the Devil.(The Watchtower, September 1, 1989, p. 19)

Jehovah is using only one organization today to accomplish his will. To receive everlasting life in the earthly Paradise we must identify that organization and serve God as part of it." Watchtower 1983 Feb 15 p.12

Just as Noah and his God-fearing family were preserved in the ark, survival of individuals today depends on their faith and their loyal association with the earthly part of Jehovah's universal organization." Watchtower2006 May 15 p.22 "Are You Prepared for Survival?"

But Jehovah's servants already belong to the only organization that will survive the end of this wicked system of things." Watchtower 2007 Dec 15 p.14

"But if we were to draw away from Jehovah's organization, there would be no place else to go for salvation and true joy." Watchtower 1993 Sep 15 p.22

"Only Christian witnesses of Jehovah who successfully pass this test will survive and come forth like fire-refined gold for God's use in his precious new order." Watchtower 1985 Mar 1 p.14

"And while now the witness yet includes the invitation to come to Jehovah's organization for salvation, the time no doubt will come when the message takes on a harder tone, like a "great war cry."" Watchtower 1981 Nov 15 p.21

Questions Often Asked by Interested Persons Do they [Jehovah’s Witnesses] believe that they are the only ones who will be saved? No. Many millions that have lived in centuries past and who were not Jehovah's Witnesses will come back in a resurrection and have an opportunity for life. Many now living may yet take a stand for truth and righteousness before the "great tribulation," and they will gain salvation. Moreover, Jesus said that we should not be judging one another. We look at the outward appearance; God looks at the heart. He sees accurately and judges mercifully. He has committed judgment into Jesus' hands, not ours.’(Jehovah's Witnesses in the Twentieth Century, 1989, p. 29)

Differences between the New World Translation and other translations.
Missing books. In their Bibles, the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox churches include books known by some as the Apocrypha. However, those books were not accepted into the Jewish canon, and it is noteworthy that the Bible says that the Jews were the ones who were “entrusted with the sacred pronouncements of God.”(Romans 3:1, 2) Thus, the New World Translation and many other modern Bible translations rightly exclude the books of the Apocrypha.
http://www.jw.org/en/jehovahs-witnesses/faq/n ...
All originated after the cessation of prophecy, and they cannot therefore be regarded as inspired, nor are they ever cited by Christ or the apostles.

What we believe: There is no eternal torment in a fiery hell. Quoting from Romans 6:23 in the King James Version, Zion’s Watch Tower entitled its issue of June 1882 “The Wages of Sin Is Death,” stating:“How clear and simple is this statement. How strange it is that so many who profess to receive the Bible as the Word of God persist in contradicting this positive statement, and affirm that they believe, and that the Bible teaches, that the wages of sin is everlasting life in torment.”What the Bible says:“The soul that sinneth, it shall die.”(Ezekiel 18:4, 20, King James Version) The final punishment for those who oppose God is, not eternal torment, but “everlasting destruction.”—2 Thessalonians 1:9, King James Version.

http://www.jw.org/en/jehovahs-witnesses/faq/c... . The New World Translation is based on up-to-date scholarly research and the most reliable ancient manuscripts. In contrast, the King James Version of 1611 was based on manuscripts that were often less accurate and not as old as those used in producing the New World Translation.
Faithfulness. The New World Translation strives to convey faithfully the original message that was inspired by God.(2 Timothy 3:16) Many translations of the Bible sacrifice faithfulness to God’s message in favor of following human traditions, for instance by replacing God’s personal name, Jehovah, with titles such as Lord or God.

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&#8242;na?*

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 11:49 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&#8242;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.+

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?
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.
