Is that so?
Let's do the math 100,000 congs divided by 19 miilion = 190 jw's per cong. Go figure!

If the JW's are not doing as the Lord commands does it matter how many people are in the organization?

If the JW's are adding to the word of God does it matter how many embers they have in its organization?

People are free to believe anything they want, and live anyway they want, it is the person who preaches contrary to the Law of Christ, that should be corrected by a true Christian. There is only one truth...1Timothy 2:4,5

Fake ministers or preachers of God's word the Bible are accountable to Jesus our reigning King in heaven, these people are identified as apostles of Satan, because they preach their own inspired ideas and understanding of Scripture, and not the truth. 2Corinthians 11:13,14

They will receive their reward when the great tribulation starts, for it will start with their and all false religions demise, very soon now.

If you truly believe what you posted, please show me proof of what your leaders say in these quotes from the Watchtower and other publications they print. I know you wont do it, because YOU CANT! If its not biblical, then they are the ones who are FAKE PREACHERS!! I am not asking you to prove what they are saying for me, I am asking you to prove it for yourself. That time out of your life, and prove it to yourself before it is to late. The bible never says that any F&DS has any part in your salvation at all.

''The Faithful Slave is the channel through which Jesus is feeding his true followers at this time of the end. It is vital that we recognize the Faithful Slave. Our spiritual health and our relationship with God depend on this channel. Matt 4:4; John 17:3.
Watchtower July 15, 2013, page 20, paragraph
The other sheep should never forget that their salvation depends on their active support of Christ’s anointed brothers still on earth.
Watchtower March 15, 2012, page 20, paragraph 2.
Through the new covenant, Jehovah makes blessings available to many by means of a few. Those in the covenant are few, 144,000 Through them,(FDS class, now the Governing Body), millions from all nations will be blessed with everlasting life on an earthly paradise……
Watchtower March 1st, 2012, page 17, section 3.
We need to obey the Faithful and Discreet Slave to have Jehovah’s approval.
Watchtower July 15, 2011, page 24.
Among those “gifts in men” are the members of the Governing Body, who act in a representative way for the entire Christian congregation,(Acts 15: 2, 6). In fact, our attitude towards Christ’s spiritual brothers is a major factor that will determine how we will be judged in the coming great tribulation,(Matt 25:34-40). Thus one aspect of the way we gain a blessing is by giving our loyal support to God’s anointed ones.
Watchtower December 15, 2010, page 20, paragrap19.
The anointed and their other sheep companions recognize that by following the lead of the modern-day Governing Body, they are in fact following their leader Christ.
Watchtower September 15, 2010, page 23, paragraph 8.
The Governing Body publishes spiritually encouraging literature in many languages. This spiritual food is based on God’s Word. Thus, what is taught is not from men but from Jehovah – Isa 54:13w
Watchtower September 15, 2010, page 13, paragraph 8.
We cannot hope to acquire a good relationship with Jehovah if we ignore those whom Jesus has appointed to care for his belongings. Without the assistance of the “faithful and discreet slave”(now an 8 man Governing Body), we would neither understand the full import of what we read in God’s Word nor know how to apply it.(Matt 24:45-47).

Fake ministers need fake bibles to support their claims, like the New World Translation used from door to door by the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses.

Here is perhaps the most despicable alteration the governing body of the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses have ever done in their twisting of the bible:

This is what the govering body of the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses have done to Exodus 3:13-15 :

In the King James version it reads:

"13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?

14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, the LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations."

Now in the New World translation the same important passage has been sabotoged to read:

"13 Nevertheless, Moses said to the [true] God:“Suppose I am now come to the sons of Israel and I do say to them,‘The God of YOUR forefathers has sent me to YOU,’ and they do say to me,‘What is his name?’ What shall I say to them?”

14 At this God said to Moses:“I SHALL PROVE TO BE WHAT I SHALL PROVE TO BE.” And he added:“This is what you are to say to the sons of Israel,‘I SHALL PROVE TO BE has sent me to YOU.’”

15 Then God said once more to Moses:

“This is what you are to say to the sons of Israel,‘Jehovah the God of YOUR forefathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, has sent me to YOU.’ This is my name to time indefinite, and this is the memorial of me to generation after generation. "

Now if you examine the differences you will notice the first disturbing alteration was made in verse 14 where the "I am that I am" was replaced with "“I SHALL PROVE TO BE WHAT I SHALL PROVE TO BE.”.

The only logical name that has meaning that can be used to describe an OMNIPRESENT GOD is the name that GOD gave to Moses, "I am that I am".

Eternity is beyond time and space so the phrasing of the New World Translation's “I SHALL PROVE TO BE WHAT I SHALL PROVE TO BE.” is totally absurd!

Now when we go down to verse 15 where the word "jehovah" was inserted implying that this is the name that GOD gave to Moses!

This is perhaps the most dishonest, blasphemous, and misleading alteration that I have found in the New World translation of which there are many!

Something fishy is happening in Brooklyn with the governing body of Jehovah's Witnesses. At first I found it difficult to believe that these men could be deleberately misleading seven million people but it appears to be precisely what they are doing but why?

YUP,
EXACTLY WHAT WT PUBLICATIONS DO.
IF YOU FOLLOWED THE BIBLE YOU WOULD NOT NEED EXTRA PUBLICATIONS TO INTERPRET SCRIPTURE FOR YOU.


*What is the difference between what Jehovah Witnesses do and all the other denoms?

1. God says Believe + Be Baptized = Saved (Mark 16:16)

2. Denoms say Believe = Saved + be baptized (LATER ON)(Mark 16:16)


How much worse could one pervert the word of God?(Gal.1:6-9)

*Lets try another one.


The bible says faith "alone" is a "dead" faith and can save no one (James 2:17-24).


Denoms say one is saved by faith "alone" (James 2:24)


20 But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?

17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.

24 Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.

* How much difference are there between what Watch Tower Society is doing and what the other denoms are doing?

Not one thing, they all are teaching continual error (Heb.10:25-31).

9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God...(2Jn 9)

46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?-(Luke 6:46)

SOS, I am not being unkind but I challenge you to ask your preacher if yall have a creed-book other than the bible. It is very likely you are involved in the very thing you are charging the JW of doing.

I say this only in hopes of opening your eyes to what many do not realize.

I say this with love for you soul.

15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:(Eph.4:15).

17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.(Eph.5:17)

46 And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?(Luke 6:46)

<quoted text>Nope,

I am not sure what KHS refers too.

I assure you that one must be in the church spoken of in the New Testament to go to heaven. For Jesus is only going to save one body (or one church) according to (Eph.5:23).

...even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.(Eph.5:23)

One may ask what is the body?

If we get our information from the Bible the body is the church according to (Col. 1:18,24)(Eph.1:22,23).


18 And he is the head of the body, the church...

The Body is the Church


*How many bodies (churches) are there according to the word of god?

20 But now are they many members, yet but one body.(1Cor.12:20)

The word of God says there is YET BUT ONE BODY (one church).

The one church (body) found in the Bible taught the very same thing in each congregation according to -

...who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church.(1Cor.4:17)


10 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.(1Cor.1:10)

...let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.(Phil.3:16,17).



*There are people out there which are following this commandments above. If you want more information on these people just look below.

It cracks me up that the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses go door to door insisting that they are not a church yet the governing body claims the organization to be a church for tax purposes just like any other church does.

We have to logically ask ourselves then, who is the governing body of the organization lying to, the congregation and the public or the United States government?

Another thing I wonder about, if this deceitful business goes to court, do you think the faithful and discreet slave class will be allowed to swear on the New World translation on the witness stand?

Lets face it people! The kingdom hall is a church! The only difference between a church and a kingdom hall is the kingdom hall does not have any windows to let the light in :)

You are here on a forum with apostates, DFed, DAed, ones, Do you really think that because you say you don't directly reply to someone is good enough explanation to the Elders why you are here? Have you ever told your Elders that you come here? Would you go to a bar and sit quietly at a table and read your bible and think that was okay? What would people say about you that seen you go into that bar? Oh he/she is just in there reading their bible? LOL of course not, they would associate you with all those who are in that bar drinking and fighting and looking for your next bed partner. You are here, this is not an approved JW site, it is TOPIX. Ask your brothers if its okay for you to be here and come back and let us know what they say.
I am one here reading, who is not apostate, DF'd, or DA'd, No doubt there are more as well. All mankind are free to do whatever they wish to do.

Why join a religion? Wouldn't it be better to join JESUS Congregation? The only way you can do that is to confess your sins, and dedicate your life to Jesus, it is not done by going door to door and turning in a time slip, by going to meetings, or assemblies, it is by truly believing in the name if JESUS Christ. Believing that he was born, died and was resurrected. Believing that it is by his blood that we can live. Religion, Jehovah's Witnesses, Southern Baptist, Methodist, Catholics, etc have nothing to do with your salvation, it is what is in your heart, mind, and body as to how you receive Jesus that will save you.
The bible was written for all of US, not just 144,000 people. The bible says that Jesus died for all of mankind. Remember, it says God LOVED THE "WORLD", so much, World does not mean only 144,000 but it means every person who has lived, or died, or will live on this earth. It means, me, you, Tom, Mary, Joe and Harry, etc. And the word WHOSEVER means, ANY ONE who believes, will be saved! Stop allowing 8 men to take away from you what you can have by believing, truly believing in Jesus as your Savior. Stop condemning people to death, but tell them about how Jesus can save them to!! That is the message he wants us to share.

What the householder at the door isn't told is that if they reject the message of this cult and it's claim of being the only group on the planet that speaks for the primitive god that they have replaced the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel with, the householder and their entire family will be brutally hacked to death by avenging angels at a battle that The Jehovah's Witnesses are fixated on, based on one word in the entire bible, "Armageddon".

And shouldn't the householder also be warned of what will happen if they join this cult and need a blood transfusion?

And what about having their whole family turned against them if they have second thoughts about the teachings of the masters of this cult, the faithful and discreet slave class?

And shouldn't the parents of small children be warned of the pedophile problem?

The poor followers of this bloody cult fail to recognize that the book they cling to, the book of Revelation, was not even added to the Roman canon until the sixth century! And even then the addition was hotly debated by the clergy!

One word, found only one time in the entire bible, from a much disputed book added to the bible in the sixth century, upon which this apocalyptic cult built their entire blood soaked religion!

The Historical Jesus taught that GOD is LOVE.

Unlike the word "Armageddon" that the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses built their cult on, the word "LOVE" is mentioned in the bible 314 times!

And unlike the word, "Armageddon", the word "LOVE is at the core of the two most important commandments in the entire bible.

Is the withholding of vital and important information about the negative aspects of the cult at the door while extending an invitation to attend an assembly of Jehovah's Witnesses a form of lying by omission?

Would you join the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses knowing the complete history of this cult and it's hate and fear based bloodbath theology that contradicts the OMNIPRESENT GOD of the historical Jesus?

1 John 4:8 (King James Version)

"8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."

Condemning 99.97 percent of the human race to a gruesome and bloody execution at the hands of angels is not from the OMNIPRESENT GOD that the historical Jesus taught is LOVE. Not by a long shot!

We all need to get informed as to the evil nature of the Roman hoax of Christianity and it's many derivatives, such as the antisemitic organization of Jehovah's Witnesses, that deny the Jewish GOD and the Jewish Jesus and get involved in restoring true Christianity based on the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel to humanity that is even now being found to be in accord with the latest scientific findings concerning the nature of the Cosmos!

GOD is LOVE. WE are ALL ONE WITH GOD, even the unloving!
