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?
Unlike you and the other theocratic warriors defending the organization, nanoanomaly, I take the two most important commandments in the bible seriously.

Of course the unconditional LOVE taught by the historical Jesus conflicts with your judgmental bloodbath theology of conditional love making your hateful behavior understandable.

I am doing what I was trained to do from the time I was born until I was cast out of the organization at the age of 28. The only difference is that now I really do have the TRUTH to share with humanity.

This is why I have been using this tagline that sums up the TRUTH that the historical Jesus tried to share to close my posts with most of the time here on topix:

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

The problem is that you have been taught to worship a graven image instead of the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel that is at the heart of the message of the historical Jesus.

The OMNIPRESENT GOD you and your earthly masters reject is LOVE:

1 John 4:8 (King James Version)

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

This is why you and your fellow theocratic warriors are so mean and hateful here on topix. you have turned away from the TRUE GOD to follow Judge Rutherford and his god of conditional love derived from the pages of the occult novel, Angels and women.

And, nanoanomaly, the only reason I hid my profile comments is because of JW trolls that follow me to find information to use in later ad hominem attacks, like the LSD experience I was disfellowshiped for over 40 years ago that you JWs keep throwing up in a dishonest attempt to discredit my posts.

Now you wouldn't do something that despicable, nanoanomaly, would you ?

And another thing, nanoanomaly, Jesus taught us to LOVE our enemies.

You and your fellow followers on the other hand though are taught to hate your enemies.

The proof is in the many hateful posts that have been made attacking those who disagree with you and your fellow warriors.

This is why you are so fixated on the absurd idea that I hate the people in the organization. Your masters have taught you to hate so that all that you see is this hate reflected all around you.

Only someone consumed with the fear of a psychotic god can hate their neighbors as much as you do.

I'll go with Jesus and LOVE.

And you call yourself a Christian?

I'm not defending them, just pointing out your lack of a "live and let live" attitude.

FYI, I don't follow any church's doctrine. I've been in several different churches as a visitor since I was a little kid and none have appealed to me enough to become a member. Attending church is not my cuppa, but I respect the right of everybody who wants to do it to be able to do it without being taunted by some loon.

BTW, the religion forum on Topix is a fairly obscure place to be preaching either for OR against any doctrine. There are very few people who ever visit this forum, much less this particular thread, so just who the fk do you think you are swaying with your rants?

Holy crappoley, I couldn't care less what freaky drug you took in your misspent youth, grandpa.

You appear to give too much of a shyt what the members of a group you no longer hang with think about you. Life is short, let it go and move on. Those JWs you used to "fellowship" with likely never give you a second thought anymore. Why let something that happened so long ago eat at you like this? BTW, you don't sound like you've yet to be all that filled with Jesus's love that you mentioned. Didn't Jesus say to forgive, forgive, forgive.....

You're only hurting yourself with all this hate talk.

We know that there are many lies out there in the world, but if you have never gone to our meetings then you don't truly know how we are. We are kind loving people. We always have different topics that are based on the bible every week. Off coarse there are some who aren't true Christians and those are the ones who committed crimes over and over and do not notice their mistakes.
We also do not make people pay for any of our publication our entire organization lives off of donations. We have ATM machines because some people want to donate money but only have some on their card.
Our organization is almost at 8 million and growing. We preach because we believe in Jehova'. And we go to meetings because we want to learn more. We have many publications based on the bible that are very interesting to read. We don't force anyone to do things they don't like.
Learn more of what? For over 60 years of attending meetings and assemblies I have never heard about the origin of the Bible or the Dead Sea Scrolls. So,what kind of Bible students are jw's? In 60 years I can tell you exactly what is going to be discussed at the meeting and the assemblies,go figure.

Your reading comprehension is pathetic.

Why don't you acquaint yourself with what is going on before mindlessly shooting off your mouth all the time?

I tried to explain to you that I do not hate people but I am concerned about all hate and fear based religions such as the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses with their bloodbath theology.

The belief system of the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses is a form of mental illness just like the belief systems of all the other 32000 or so sects of Christianity that have bought into the Roman Mithra based hoax. It just happens to be the one hate and fear based religion that I am most familiar with.

For the mental and spiritual health of humanity we all need to wake up to the insanity of primitive hate and fear based religions such as the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses that keeps humanity fragmented.

The teachings of the Jehovah's Witnesses are harmful to society and they are harmful to families. It's apocalyptic teachings causes people to put their whole lives on hold to follow an incredibly selfish dream of a paradise gained by the slaughter of 99.97 percent of humanity which is supposed to happen any day now!

The organization encourages pedophilia by it's absurd priorities. It Causes needless deaths due to the misunderstanding of scripture on Blood and ignorance of the cultures the scriptures specifically address.

Stress levels and suicides are high in the organization because of the harsh judgmental teachings that keep changing. The list goes on and on.

Would it be live and let live to simply walk on by while your neighbor's house is on fire?

If I can be instrumental in waking up one person here on topix, my time will have been well spent.

I won't be answering any more of your trolls nanoanomaly. This is mainly for the lurkers anyway. I doubt if you will even bother to read down this far.

But if you did perchance read down this far, you should consider giving up your life as a mindless troll and waking up to who you really are.

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 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!

( this phrase that I have used over 10,000 times in closing my posts is the totality of the real message of the historical Jesus and can be confirmed as true by simply practicing the two most important commandments in the bible in one's day to day life.)

I don't belong to any religion. I see the message of the historical Jesus as amazingly simple and in harmony with recent scientific findings that confirm the reality of the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel that most of so-called Christianity rejects.

I see most of what is called Christianity today as a hoax created by the Romans who murdered the historical Jesus, blamed it on the Jews, and replaced his simple and elegant truth with an amalgamation of primitive myths. The predominate myth is the Mithra figure worshiped by the Roman soldiers that replaced the historical Jesus in the Roman form of Christianity.

I know this is a lot for you to swallow and conflicts with what you have been taught but you can prove the reality of the OMNIPRESENT GOD for yourself if you want to:

Psalm 46:10 (New International Version)

"10 He says, "Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."

It takes practice in learning to still the constant chatter of the linear brain. But with perseverance you can come to KNOW THE OMNIPRESENT GOD as your spiritual parent:

Genesis 1:27 (New International Version,©2010)

"27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them. "

Once you KNOW GOD as your parent you can begin to LOVE GOD.

You can't love whom you do not know.

The Roman hoax of Christianity is all about hate, fear, and control. It does not know LOVE:

1 John 4:8 (King James Version)

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

It is important to understand that true LOVE is unconditional and is ETERNAL.

The conditional love offered by false religions is not LOVE at all but rather a form of manipulation using hate and fear.

I usually close my posts with this tagline that expresses what can be said about the reality of our existence and is in complete harmony with the teachings of the historical Jesus:

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

If you study the history of the bible you will find that the book of Revelation was not even added to the Roman canon until the sixth century.

The early Christians accepted reincarnation. This teaching was outlawed by the Roman emperor Justinian in the year 553 over the objections of Pope Vigilius who had to go into hiding to save his life.

Once reincarnation was outlawed, The pagan hellfire belief was introduced and the book of Revelation was added to the Roman canon to help support this insane belief, again over the objections of the clergy.

Hellfire and eternal torture were created as a political tool to control a populace that would have been much more difficult to control if they believed in reincarnation. If we accept that reincarnation actually exists as the early Christians believed it does we can begin to grasp how unconditional LOVE works.

If we accept a god of hellfire we have a world gone mad as you can plainly see today with all of the different religions fighting each other and many people rejecting religion all together as just plain ridiculous!

Remember, Jesus was Jewish. He worshiped the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel. He taught that this GOD is LOVE.

LOVE and hellfire do not go together.

And conditional love is not LOVE at all but rather a tool of manipulation.

I hope this answers your question.

You can confirm everything that I have said for yourself. It was quite a shock for me to find out that what I thought was Christianity was a hoax perpetrated by the Roman empire to control it's citizens.

But if you consider the simple egalitarian truth of the historical Jesus you can see how true Christianity would be intolerable to a regime based on oppression and so the teachings of the historical Jesus had to be replaced to meet the needs of the empire in controlling it's subjects.

I have been ending most of my posts with this tagline that sums up the simple truth of the historical Jesus:

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

It is pretty hilarious.
Any person with half a brain knows they are "students" of Watchtower propaganda and nothing else.
When they actually have to debate the Bible they "know" next to nothing, and just start reciting the same stupidity over and over.
But they will leave every conversation bragging about their "witness" no matter how badly they were proven to be idiots.
Usually this results in a rousing reincarnation recited at a meeting, where much clapping is given.
The fact that what actually happened has little to do with the fairy tale given, is of no value to the congregation.
It is all about the pure fiction the WBTS wants regurgitated over and over.
It is a joke.

All Jehovah's Witnesses know it is okay to lie "to protect jehovah"

2Corinthians 4:4
Then please explain these scriptures....

John 14
14 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God[a]; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

He has a place already prepared for us that believe in God and Jesus.

For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son,
[that whoever believes in him shall not perish
but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world
to condemn the world,
but to save the world through him.
John 3:16-17

Those who believe shall not perish but have eternal life! He saved us with his blood.

John 3:36 "He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."

John 10:9 " I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture."

John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

1 Corinthians 3:11 "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."

1 John 5:12 "He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life."

1 John 5:13 "These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God."

God's word tells Christians to examine themselves to make sure we are in God's will
2Cor 13:5 (NIV) Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you--unless, of course, you fail the test?

We are told

1 Corinthians 15:1-415 Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
3 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures

1John 2:24 (NIV) See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you. If it does, you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.

If a Christian follows what we have been instructed we have assurance that we have eternal life we need not wonder

AND WE ARE TOLD

Galatians 1:9
9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.We are warned not to listen to another gospel .

Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. If we follow these instructions and are sincerely making sure of our faith by examining ourselves against God's word we have the PROMISE of eternal life .If we find we have failed in some way we have an advocate in Jesus who will step up for us , a God willing to forgive us and get us BACK ON THE RIGHT PATH .

By believing in Jesus they think they are save and have nothing else to do but wait to be taken to heaven.they think is a guarantee just like the nation of Israel thought that they will always be God's chosen people.we know how that ended.

I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."
It takes practice in learning to still the constant chatter of the linear brain. But with perseverance you can come to KNOW THE OMNIPRESENT GOD as your spiritual parent:
Genesis 1:27 (New International Version,©2010)
"27 So God created mankind in his own image,
in the image of God he created them;
male and female he created them. "
Once you KNOW GOD as your parent you can begin to LOVE GOD.
You can't love whom you do not know.
The Roman hoax of Christianity is all about hate, fear, and control. It does not know LOVE:
1 John 4:8 (King James Version)
"8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."
It is important to understand that true LOVE is unconditional and is ETERNAL.
The conditional love offered by false religions is not LOVE at all but rather a form of manipulation using hate and fear.
I usually close my posts with this tagline that expresses what can be said about the reality of our existence and is in complete harmony with the teachings of the historical Jesus:
GOD is LOVE. WE are ALL ONE WITH GOD, even the unloving!
You sure can use those fifty-cent words well.

Those who please God glorify Him in the church (Eph.3:21).
Jesus shed his blood to purchase the church (Acts 20:28)
Only the saved are added to the church (Acts 2:36-47)
There is yet but one church (or body)(1Cor.12:20)
The body is the church (Eph.1:22,23)(Col.1:18,24)
Jesus is the Saviour of only one church (Eph.5:23)(Rom.16:16)
No one outside the church will be saved (1Thess.1:7-9)(2Thes.2:10-12)

This info above proves the church is important and necessary for salvation. It worries me that you think you can make it to heaven without being in the church. I do mean "the church" for the bible only speaks of one church and it was established in (Acts 2) on the day of Pentecost some 2000 years ago. Any church which began later than this is not the church of the bible and will not save anyone. Most the churches have been established from the 1500s onward. Only the Roman Catholic Church is left and it is not the church of the bible for it is not mentioned once in the word of God. And it surely does not match the pattern of the NT church.

Your reading comprehension is pathetic.
Why don't you acquaint yourself with what is going on before mindlessly shooting off your mouth all the time?
I tried to explain to you that I do not hate people but I am concerned about all hate and fear based religions such as the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses with their bloodbath theology.
The belief system of the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses is a form of mental illness just like the belief systems of all the other 32000 or so sects of Christianity that have bought into the Roman Mithra based hoax. It just happens to be the one hate and fear based religion that I am most familiar with.
For the mental and spiritual health of humanity we all need to wake up to the insanity of primitive hate and fear based religions such as the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses that keeps humanity fragmented.
The teachings of the Jehovah's Witnesses are harmful to society and they are harmful to families. It's apocalyptic teachings causes people to put their whole lives on hold to follow an incredibly selfish dream of a paradise gained by the slaughter of 99.97 percent of humanity which is supposed to happen any day now!
The organization encourages pedophilia by it's absurd priorities. It Causes needless deaths due to the misunderstanding of scripture on Blood and ignorance of the cultures the scriptures specifically address.
Stress levels and suicides are high in the organization because of the harsh judgmental teachings that keep changing. The list goes on and on.
Would it be live and let live to simply walk on by while your neighbor's house is on fire?
If I can be instrumental in waking up one person here on topix, my time will have been well spent.
I won't be answering any more of your trolls nanoanomaly. This is mainly for the lurkers anyway. I doubt if you will even bother to read down this far.
But if you did perchance read down this far, you should consider giving up your life as a mindless troll and waking up to who you really are.
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 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!
( this phrase that I have used over 10,000 times in closing my posts is the totality of the real message of the historical Jesus and can be confirmed as true by simply practicing the two most important commandments in the bible in one's day to day life.)
There are exactly 12 people observing this forum as of 1 minute ago, so you're not reaching any audience that cares about your message. The few people who are here, now, already have their personal ideologies solid in their minds and are not swayed by your comments. Those who are JWs will go away from here as Jws and those who are not will leave as they came also.

You influence nobody here. Nobody.

Thank you for your concern, Sosthenes. However your cosmology is not the same as mine.

In answer to your question, The OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel is at the core of the teachings of the historical Jesus. The Nation of Israel had accepted the reality of the OMNIPRESENT GOD long before Jesus was born and still does to this day.

Here is an excellent site discussing the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel:

http://www.jewfaq.org/g-d.htm

Most of Christianity has rejected this GOD and have followed various primitive imaginary gods of conditional love such as the pagan triune god of the Roman Catholic Church, the church who started the whole hoax of Christianity in the first place.

If you really want to know in depth the simple truth of the historical Jesus consider that the only scriptures he ever used were the Hebrew Scriptures. The Greek Scriptures would not be written until many years after his death.

All the historical Jesus taught was an enlightened form of Judaism based on our relationship with the OMNIPRESENT GOD.

And your concern about reaching heaven is based on a mistranslation of the word which in Aramaic denoted a state of consciousness., This is also how I define heaven, as a state of consciousness we can all experience, as did the early Christians.

I consider the historical Jesus to be a mystic who was murdered by the Romans, the murder was blamed on the Jews, and his simple and delightful truth was replaced with an amalgamation of primitive myths, predominately the Mithra myth. This was all done to protect the interests of the Roman empire. The empire is gone now but sadly, people are still protecting it.

Remember, Jesus was a Jew and worshiped the OMNIPRESENT GOD of Israel. The belief in Jesus as a god-man who died for our sins is derived from the pagan Mithra myth favored by the Roman warriors.

The Roman version of Christianity has nothing to do with a Jewish Messiah. The Jewish definition of a Messiah is much different than the one used by the Romans for their version of Christianity.

In Judaism we are all created in GOD's image! MALE and FEMALE! A Messiah simply demonstrates that this is so! A true Messiah is nobody special!

All of this can be proven. The historical facts are available if you care to do the research for yourself.

I appreciate the time and effort you put into trying to present an argument.

And I don't want to appear unkind, but all of your proofs are based on circular reasoning.

Consider the scripture I quoted in my earlier post. This is a scripture that does not ask you to have blind faith in what it says but provides you a with a simple method to become aware of the OMNIPRESENT GOD and your relationship with this GOD. This method either works are it does not work. Many people besides myself insist that it does work.

To KNOW GOD is an experiential form of knowledge. It can not be found in any book. At best a book can only point the way. But once you have experienced the reality of the OMNIPRESENT GOD no further proof for the reality of GOD or your own existence is needed.

This is what true Mysticism is all about. Knowing GOD as your parent. You can't do this if you worship a pagan image as most Christians today do.

Wake up to the wonderful reality of your being, Sosthenes, you won't be disappointed!

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