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!

No, you are guessing wrong, but I am guessing that you are a theocratic warrior working for the organization trying to discredit all of the people exposing your misguided cult with ad hominem attacks.

Prove me wrong if you can.
*more ad hominem attacks prove nothing and just make you look more ridiculous than you already appear to be.

It isn't about hate. If you took the time to read and digest what I have had to say in the over 11,000 posts that I have posted here on topix you would see it is all about the GOD that the historical Jesus taught is unconditional LOVE.

This is in direct conflict with the teachings of the antisemitic organization of Jehovah's Witnesses who actually reject the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel at the core of the teachings of the historical Jesus for this primitive anthropological god instead:

http://www.seanet.com/~raines/jehovah.html

Your religion, the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses has done a lot of damage to a lot of people. It's insane and is not even remotely Christian.

I am concerned for those trapped inside this cult just as any decent human being would be concerned for those trapped inside a burning building.

When you yell "Flee for your lives to those in a burning building you don't hate the people trapped inside the building, you just want to warn them so that they may escape the fire.

Your bloodbath theology is an insult to the ONE TRUE GOD and a very real danger to the real spiritual growth of those poor unfortunate souls that are trapped inside of this hateful cult!

Wake up and stop being a part of the problem and start participating in being a part of the solution!

Cut the bullshit, grandpa, I saw your claim to have been a JW before you hid your profile comments.

You are obviously a fanatic who hates their group. Why spend so much time ranting about them? Life is short, dude. Have you ever considered taking OCD meds to help you move on and not obsess so much?

That is only what you think, the truth is hidden from you, as well as every other person not open to the light of truth today. Only the meek people on this earth will see how that Scripture shows going door to door is the work Jesus gave his disciples to do, and only the true Christians today go door to door using only the Holy Bible.

Question for Karen

What's wrong with going into a bar and reading a bible?.

Strange as that may look...To me that would be courageous.

Why do automatically infer that people who frequent bars are of people of poor moral character?.

Below you will find it is wrong to even be at drinking parties. One must stay away from places which will tempt him to do evil things. Just being at these places tryng to live right and correct those living evil lives enrages those doing evil to the point they will turn on you speaking evil of you. Be careful where you go and who you hang around with (1Cor15:33).

33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners.

(1Peter 4:2,3)-2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.
3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

(1Peter 4:4)
wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them into the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

Ye run not with them ... Perhaps here is the source of a common expression, running with" this or that social set, or with certain friends or associates.

Excess of riot ... The tendency of all riot, lust, violence, etc., is for the indulgence to increase, being multiplied geometrically beyond all consideration or reason. Those who indulge are like an engine with no governor and subject to unlimited acceleration until it is destroyed.

They think it strange ... speaking evil of you ... No one is any more unpopular at a drinking party than a teetotaler; and the same is true of all abstainers from popular sins.

Is every bar a drinking party with outrageously loud music and bad people?.

Not to sound offensive. But, you must have not ever got out much.

One can physically put themselves in the most innocent looking of situations and have bad intentions.

But, i do know what you mean and i appreciate your post.

Let me explain it this way. Would you take Jesus into a bar? If you were walking into a bar, and some of your co workers seen you do this, how do you think they would perceive you? The way our world is today, bars are not good places for a Christian to be. We know that most people, and I did not way all, get drunk, get involved in relationships with someone other than their mate, they get into fights. In some bars they have woman dancing half naked, and in some cases naked in front of people. Do you think that your coworkers would see you as being a good Christian if they seen you going into a bar, or do you think they would see you as the type of person who went there for all those other things? It is on us as Christians to set a good example for those around us, we would not go into a bar to read the bible in the first place, and we would want to stay away from places that would put a bad name on the Lord, or us as a Christian.
I do know there are those who go to bars to help those who are in trouble and this is their ministry, but I would think that people would probably know that this is why they are going there.

So you are saying Jesus was lying when he was praying to his heavenly Father, Almighty God Jehovah, when he said that God hides the truth from people who think they are wise and know everything.

That is why only the meek and humble before Jehovah God are the ones that Jesus will accept as his subjects today.
The light of truth is the same today as it was when the early Christians had to accept Jesus as the only way to everlasting life.

Do not think you are safe and have salvation already, no one is saved until you survive the end of this world ruled by Satan the Devil.... you are either the children of Jehovah God or Satan in this world. 1John 3:10-12
