1 Corinthians 14:34
As in all the congregations of the holy ones, 34 let the women keep silent in the congregations, for it is not permitted for them to speak.+ Rather, let them be in subjection,+ as the Law also says. 35 If they want to learn something, let them ask their husbands at home, for it is disgraceful for a woman to speak in the congregation.
36 Was it from you that the word of God originated, or did it reach only as far as you?

The Shocking Pagan Origin of CHRISTMAS!
Although the whole world celebrates Christmas as a "Christian" holiday, including millions of non-Christians, is Christmas really "Christian" at all? Consider this fact: Look high and low throughout the pages of the Bible, and you will find not ONE WORD of "Christmas" being celebrated by any of YEHOVAH's people! It is not even mentioned once! Neither the Messiah nor any of his apostles ever observed this holiday, nor the New Testament Church!

Yet on the other hand the pagan, heathen world observed this day for thousands of years before the Messiah was even born!

The Bible’s answer
The Bible does not give the date of Jesus’ birth, nor does it say that we should celebrate his birthday. As McClintock and Strong’s Cyclopedia states:“The observance of Christmas is not of divine appointment, nor is it of NT [New Testament] origin.”

The Bible’s answer
The celebration of Easter is not based on the Bible. If you look into its history, though, you will see the true meaning of Easter—it is a tradition based on ancient fertility rites. Consider the following.

The Origins of Halloween—What Does the Bible Say About Them?

The Bible’s answer
The Bible does not mention Halloween. However, both the ancient origins of Halloween and its modern customs show it to be a celebration based on false beliefs about the dead and invisible spirits, or demons.—See “Halloween history and customs.”

The Bible warns:“There must never be anyone among you who ... consults ghosts or spirits, or calls up the dead.”(Deuteronomy 18:10-12,

The Bible’s answer
The Bible does not give a specific date for the birth of Jesus Christ, as these reference works show:

“The true birth date of Christ is unknown.”—New Catholic Encyclopedia.

“The exact date of Christ’s birth is not known.”—Encyclopedia of Early Christianity.

Conquering Prejudice
Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that all races are equal in the sight of God.(Acts 10:34, 35) Through Bible education, we try to help people overcome even deep-seated prejudices.

Additionally, we do not support any movement motivated by racial or ethnic hatred. During the Nazi era, for example, Jehovah’s Witnesses in Germany and elsewhere refused to support Hitler’s campaign of hatred. Hundreds paid the price of refusal with their lives.

Are Jehovah’s Witnesses an American Sect?
Our world headquarters is located in the United States of America. However, we are not an American sect for the following reasons:

Some define a sect as a group that has broken away from an established religion. Jehovah’s Witnesses have not broken away from some other religious group. Instead, we feel that we have reestablished the form of Christianity that was practiced in the first century.

Jehovah’s Witnesses are active in their ministry in over 230 lands and countries. No matter where we live, we give our primary allegiance to Jehovah God and Jesus Christ, not to the U.S. government or to any other human government.—John 15:19; 17:15, 16.

Are Jehovah’s Witnesses a Cult?
Some think of a cult as being a new or unorthodox religion. Jehovah’s Witnesses have not invented a new religion. On the contrary, we pattern our worship after that of the first-century Christians, whose example and teachings were recorded in the Bible.(2 Timothy 3:16, 17) We believe that the Holy Scriptures should be the authority on what is orthodox in matters of worship.

Some think of a cult as being a dangerous religious sect with a human leader. Jehovah’s Witnesses do not look to any human as their leader. Rather, we adhere to the standard that Jesus set for his followers when he stated:“Your Leader is one, the Christ.”—Matthew 23:10.

At least Watchtower PR rep Larry is only spamming this thread with Watchtower talking points.

His browser may not allow him access to the threads where real meat is being shared between Jehovah's Witnesses and DA'd, DF'd former JW's and Christians who have been led to witness to the JW's.

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.
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.—

Is the New World Translation Accurate?

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.

Are Jehovah’s Witnesses Protestants?
No. Jehovah’s Witnesses are Christians, but we do not consider ourselves to be Protestants. Why not?

Protestantism has been defined as a “religious movement opposing Roman Catholicism.” While it is true that Jehovah’s Witnesses disagree with teachings of the Catholic Church, we do not consider ourselves to be Protestants for the following reasons:

A number of Protestant beliefs conflict with what the Bible actually teaches. For example, the Bible teaches that “there is one God,” not a Trinity.(1 Timothy 2:5; John 14:28) And it clearly teaches that God punishes the wicked, not in hellfire, but with eternal destruction.—Psalm 37:9; 2 Thessalonians 1:9.

2. We do not protest against or attempt to reform the Catholic Church or any other religious group. On the contrary, we simply preach the good news of God’s Kingdom, endeavoring to help others build faith in that good news.(Matthew 24:14; 28:19, 20) We are interested, not in attempting to reform other religious groups, but in teaching sincere individuals the truth about God and his Word, the Bible.—Colossians 1:9, 10; 2 Timothy 2:24, 25.

Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Believe in the Old Testament?
Yes. Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that the entire Bible is “inspired of God and beneficial.”(2 Timothy 3:16) That includes both the Old Testament and the New Testament, as they are commonly called. Generally, Jehovah’s Witnesses refer to these sections of the Bible as the Hebrew Scriptures and the Christian Greek Scriptures. In this way, we avoid giving the impression that some parts of the Bible are outdated or irrelevant.
Why do Christians need both the Old Testament and the New Testament?

Under divine inspiration, the Christian apostle Paul wrote:“All the things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction.”(Romans 15:4) Thus, there is valuable information for us in the Hebrew Scriptures. Among other things, they provide relevant history and practical advice

Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Believe in Creationism?

No. Jehovah’s Witnesses do believe that God created everything. But we do not agree with creationism. Why not? Because a number of creationist ideas actually conflict with the Bible. Consider the following two examples:
1. Length of the six days of creation. Some creationists assert that the six days of creation were literal 24-hour days. But the word “day” in the Bible can refer to a considerable length of time.—Genesis 2:4; Psalm 90:4.
2. Age of the earth. Some creationists teach that the earth is just a few thousand years old. However, according to the Bible, the earth and the universe existed before the six days of creation.(Genesis 1:1) For that reason, Jehovah’s Witnesses have no objection to credible scientific research that indicates the earth may be billions of years old.

Proverbs 1:22 http://www.jw.org/en/

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

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!’”+
