The Jehovahs Witnesses are not likely to tell you that their bible is quite different than all others. The Witness program was started by Charles Taze Russell a guy who did not like the idea of hell, so they have done away with it. He did not like the idea of the Trinity, so they did away with it. He did not like the authority of any other religious establishment, so, like Joseph Smith of Mormonism, he dreamed up his own. And both cults are growing, which proves people will believe just about anything if they are approached at the right time in the right way.

What proves people will believe any idiotic idea that comes along is their unquestioning acceptance of a god who is supposed to be good but who will torture you forever if you don't do as he says.

The NWT removed the word "hell" and replaced it with Gehenna, Tartarus and Sheol because these were the original words used. The word "hell" was inserted by your unscrupulous hell-doctrine-duped translators who wanted to push the idea of a good God who tortures people. Which is nothing more than a Satanic defamation of God's character.

Your translators also took liberties in capitalization of uncapitalized letters in order to push their Trinity doctrine. The NWT removed such ubnwarranted changes.

Right, that is why they go door to door.

Then, when Rutherford took over he further changed everything to what he liked. It is a man made religion. God is not there.

People who know Jehovah's witnesses, know they are the only people who live as true Christians. They are the only people who preach the Good news of God's Kingdom. Matthew 24:14

They do not go to war, do not get involved with politics, they do not lie, cheat or steal. They obey the laws of the land, pay all their taxes and they are model citizens.

They have a modern translation of the Bible, where the religions use versions of the Word of God.
Therefore everything you have said about Jehovah's witnesses is your own opinion and not the truth.

I'm sorry, I don't want to rain on your parade because I can see that you feel very good about jw's. But, I feel I must clarify a few things for you. Jw's absolutely lie, cheat, steal and do lots of other things contrary to the bible. People are kicked out of the religion everyday for such conduct. They are not perfect citizens as no one is a perfect citizen. I agree that they try to live as good people and commend them for not going to war, getting involved in politics and so on. But, it's not fair or accurate to say that they are the only good people in this world.

Just another religion where the leaders (elders in this case) think they are Gods and everyone should abide by their rules. Live as true Christians? What about all of the child molestation cases covered up and not reported to the law when it should have been? Just another cult who will shortly be wiped out.

You are obviously someone who knows nothing about the Witnesses. Elders do not think they are gods, nor do they cover things up, nor are they a cult, they do not meet that definition...EDUCATE yourself.

I'm completely educated and have been around JWs my whole life. Apparently your just ignorant. I'm not saying all witnesses are like that, but I've seen more act that way than be humble servants of god as they should. Do you not know of the lawsuits a few years ago for the Watchtower Society/Governing Body covering things up because of fear of bringing reproach on Jehovah? Apparently you need to educate yourself and come out from under your rock, lizard.

Cult may not be the correct term, but fanatical hypocrites is certainly appropriate. One of the earlier posts was correct in finding mental people to become witnesses. There are more JWs on nerve, anti-anxiety, depressant medication than any other group. Living as a true Christian does this to people? What kind of god would want that?

Again, proving the lies that Jehovah's Witnesses don't "brag" to the media about their charitable works.

These are the only press releases they can come up with???

Notice, nothing charitable for the community or even members, just more trolling for new recruits.

Wow.

Really??
Where is the kool aid???
Are you kidding??
Jehovah's Witnesses may refuse to defend the country they take advantage of but, they certainly carry weapons, and are regularly in the news with them usually blasting away at family members.

They do NOT obey the "laws of the land", otherwise so many would not end up in prison.

Pedophiles are not "model citizens".
We all have to pay taxes, otherwise we end up in jail.
However, Jehovah's Witnesses takes advantage of every government handout, freebie and tax break, while giving absolutely nothing back to the community or government they take full advantage of.

Nope, nobody but brainwashed twits consider Jehovah's Witnesses "model citizens"
Ridiculous

Jehovas FALSE WITNESS.

Everytime these clowns come to the door, I leave them questioning their "Faith".

I love it when they bring back an elder too and he leaves just as stumped.

Another Bulls!t "religion" that most of it's followers have no clue about. Ignorance is bliss...better to follow blindly, I guess.

Morons.

If you think I said that Jehovah's witnesses were the only good people on earth, you are mistaken. Jehovah's witnesses profess to be true Christians that live according to the Bible, is what I said.

If anyone claims to be a Christian today, he is under the Law of Christ, that means he is suppose to be obedient to the word of God, or try to be to the best of his ability.

Being a good person today is fine, but you will not recieve the gift of everlasting life in the new world or the paradise of God.
Only true Chistians or footstep followers of Jesus will, that excludes any witness that is not obedient either

(1 Peter 2:21-24) 21 In fact, to this [course] YOU were called, because even Christ suffered for YOU, leaving YOU a model for YOU to follow his steps closely. 22 He committed no sin, nor was deception found in his mouth. 23 When he was being reviled, he did not go reviling in return. When he was suffering, he did not go threatening, but kept on committing himself to the one who judges righteously.

You had me for a brief second, until I read this..."the new world or the paradise of God."

You're just another deceived by satan "two-class salvation" peddler.

Nobody peddles that blasphemous nonsens, but JWs, so that makes you a False Christian.

The only way a person proves his truth is to use a Scripture that backs up what you say, you do not speak the truth, but lies as your father the Devil.

(John 8:44-46) 44 YOU are from YOUR father the Devil, and YOU wish to do the desires of YOUR father. That one was a manslayer when he began, and he did not stand fast in the truth, because truth is not in him. When he speaks the lie, he speaks according to his own disposition, because he is a liar and the father of [the lie]. 45 Because I, on the other hand, tell the truth, YOU do not believe me.

The only way a person can know for sure the truth about God or how to live your life, is read your Bible, start with the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

You will also learn that God's purpose for this earth was to make it a perfect paradise for a perfect human family, that reality will eventually happen by the end of Jesus Christ thousand year reign as King of God's heavenly Kingdom.
