If you think that Jehovah's witnesses are a cult your wrong the only way you become a Jehovah's witness is by getting baptised which I haven't done because its hard and if you leave they just leave they don't like beg for you to stay or something but they do care.

Cult. Was in and glad I got out. My dad and step-mom are and they don't keep in contact with me. They say they are "Christians" but that word literally means Christ-like.The Bible I read shows God being loving and caring. They go door to door supposedly loving thy neighbor and spreading the truth, but what about your family?Hypercritical.

I can't believe that my aunt who for 53 years never bothered with me cut me off. Because I did not want to hear what she had to say about JW. I am a very where I am. Belonging to a bible taught non-denominational church that does not make up something that the word of God does not say. The Word of God says that you do not add and you do not take away from it. SO why do these religions want to change the wording to say that God said when He really did not mean it the way they express it. God is a Loving GOD, He tells us to even love our enemies .. now why would we be cutting off family? I want nothing to do with JW and please don't let them confuse you. Confusion is of the devil!

my aunt did not bother with me since birth.. 53 years and now we got to meet and she cut me off. I meant to say I am very happy in my relationship with God. And maybe you know her... Helen from Manhattan... yeah she is my aunt and it hurt to say that I was getting attached and felt love for her and she plain out shut her phone to not have any conversations with me. Well may the Holy Spirit enlighten her and direct her in the right path. The path that leads to the real GOD.

JW do not publish their own bible and never have. Its obvious that you werent interested or didnt pay attention while you went with "Daddy". Who cares who writes their song books either because eveything that is printed is taken right out of the bible, it just shows a little creativity in the people. Nothing is sold from JW... donations are taken if you would like to contribute. Why would anyone have a problem with that when all other churches are taking up collections every sunday. You have no clue what you are talking about.. Whomever started this thread needs to find their answer somewhere else. Not by asking other peoples opinions. Sorry about your horrible experience.

It is truly a cult. How can they cut people off when the Word of God clearly states that we love even our enemies. To give to all those in need and if your enemy comes to you to provide. How can you cut off family? CULT

ok i am not a Jehovah Witness, but i know people that are, they are not judgemental at all!!! yea, they believe alot differently then what some other christians believe, but thats one thing they got on other christians, they don't judge.
Thats pretty cool to me, i know they don't celebrate any holiday that i am aware of, becuz they don't believe in supporting something that is man made and all about taking money. They don't vote cuz they don't believe one man can run the country, they don't support to the war, they bcuz they don't believe "Jehovah" wants to harm other humans in any way wether its defense or not.
So actually if u think about it. They are more human then any other religion, they do care about mankind as a whole!!! i think its pretty amazing.
P.S. Also? a true Jehovah Witness will not respond to this trash.
Are you kidding Me? These so-called religion beings are more judgmental than any religion I have met in my lifetime. They believe that anyone who does a bad thing or does not study from their "New World Translation", that apparently is the only "real, untranslated, truth" (so disregard the title, and the fact that it is in English), are and will remain slaves of Satan for eternity. They don't celebrate holidays because they say everything on the planet, except for the only thing they supposedly cherish, Marriage anniversary is derived from Paganism. They don't like to take money - Uh, have you seen their buildings, the amount of literature they saturate neighborhoods with, homes of the head honchos, men's clothing (women are forced to dress down)? Ask the witnesses. Nobody in their right minds believe one man can run the country, so that is nothing profound. They have no pride in their country or people who support it, but they don't judge. 7.78 million reported witnesses, yet all say they are one of the 144,000 accepted into heaven, the rest of their saints will just have to make due in "paradise on earth" when they rise from the pile of dust one day soon? Of course the rest of the poor "non-believers" will be nowhere as nice - because they are Satan's people. Are they not judging each other now? They care about humanity as a whole, okay, unless you dare ask a question they cannot answer (there are many), or defy "the truth", so much so that the man of the house better get wifey and his children under control, or else. Perhaps you are wondering why I am familiar with this. One of these nonjudgmental, unpatriotic (21 yr retired Marine), has not an inkling of guilt while he manipulates time alone with the boys for brainwashing 101, explains to them that their mom is a kid retard and will never stand up for them, has problems, doesn't know what she is doing,and is not a Christian because she is not following Jehovah...same guy on his tirades at least once or twice per month tells her what a pathetic, self centered, ridiculous, stupid, ignorant, lazy, flaky white trash individual she is, in front of the boys...Do they teach that in a family class at kingdom hall? Guess the "Do No Harm" is just in front of people. Let me interject that wifey has worked smartly for 34 years, is a very proud 13 year veteran of the Navy and Marine Corps, meritoriously promoted, rewarded numerous times, Drill Instructor, swim instructor, Graphic Artist, fitness instructor, hospice and senior volunteer, school volunteer, student doing husbands college work because he needs a "C" to get paid by the VA that he despises(that ain't happening in this lifetime), loving daughter, sister, loyal friend, most importantly completely devoted mother. Did I mention stupid and lazy? Wait for it...NO. Of course JW seem SO SO nice. Isn't everyone on their best behavior at church? Are you still amazed? If you, or anyone thinks these people or more humane than anyone else,you may need to get out more or join them. And Oh, by the way, the pillar of faith, example for us all...my husband!

Good for you for leaving...if I could be assured that my boys would never be put into the position to be brainwashed by their dad, he would be gone too. Unfortunately, I can protect them better if I stay and put up with his tri-polar behavior, until they are 18 anyway. Thank you for the acknowledgement. It helps for others to understand,,,to justify the venting...May GOD watch over you and your family

<quoted text>
Listen, you don't know what your talkin about until you've spend yrs as a JW. Im only trying to warn you. The choice you make is yours. It all looks good & *amazing* upfront. They don't follow the government because they follow those voted in elders at the place they call bethel located in NY I believe. Do some research on origin of JWs. You know, the ones they call *the society*. They aren't judgmental at all to new comers sure. But follow them for a while and become baptized as one. Things will change so fast your head will spin. Youll be expected to devote all your time & money to them (the society). Sure most live poor, honey its because they are against a higher education. Ask your JW friends about it and listen very closely. You want your kids to be a doctor? nurse? attorney someday? well you can forget that if your in that religion. They frown upon it. Most of the older women in the congregation are sweet hearted & mean well. But I promise you this. Once you are baptized as a JW, they'll expect you to cut off your *worldly* family & friends. If you mess up one time in their eyes, they will disfellowship you. Disfellowship as in they don't look at you or speak to you. In order to be reinstated you must go to all the meetings while being shunned. Cut off from EVERYONE. I myself have never been disfellowshiped. I just left when I started realizing things weren't making sense. All that help they want to give you now, they'll turn their back on you as soon as an elder orders it done. Most of my family were full time JWs. It tore us apart. My father disfellowshiped for attempted suicide. That ain't right. I wasnt allowed to make friends at school. only JW friends. I could go on but I get severely depressed just talking about it. Im not out to bash, im concerned is all. If youve only been thru what I've been thru, you'd completely understand.
thts totaly bullshit you are saying. my parents are jws but was never forced to getbaptised yu chose on your own. dont blame your. bad habits on jws. there are many churches out ther and I hve attended many they all hve. beliefs. and their followers blve them. making frends is a privelege. if yu cant make frends at xool then its your bull. I had frends they used to come around. most of. the time but your parents warning yu of the kind of. frends yu hang around wth thts gud parenting.

Cults typically believe in an apocalypse and the followers of the cult believe they will survive the doomsday.
Jehovah Witnesses do resemble a cult; they attempt to force their followers to remove any association with "outsiders", they believe higher education is wrong (can't quite remember why), holidays are pagan and birthdays celebrate another year towards reaching death (even though they want their believers to embrace death because of a perfect life after death after the apocalypse), and they don't force anyone to send donations but they highly encourage it, especially bringing up the idea to the regular people during door-to-door work. There is such much more too.
