This is exactly what I was thinking. Anything of a charitable nature that is done--usually by individual JWs or individual congregations, but not by the Watchtower Society--is trumpeted in the literature and from the platform, and, if they can set it up, they trumpet their actions to any media outlet that will give them a hearing.
JWs have ALWAYS boasted about what they do, as insignificant as it is.
and what are you blowing?

Who do you think you are kidding??
It's amazing how those who cannot live up th God's standards rebel against what is the right thing to do. Do they want JW's to pick up a gun and stasrt murdering people because the corrupt temporary rulers of this world told you to do so. Furthur, if everyone did what JW's do when it comes to war and fighting... there would be no war.. only satan and his demons. who are also rebels against the truth.

those that oppose Jehovah

When you say those who oppose Jehovah God.
Do you mean anyone who opposes some if the things written by the WT editorial staff ???

Are you Saying that what the wt editioral writes equates to it coming from God himself ???

The reason I ask is because you are litelly claiming that many of the posters here are Opposed to God. And all Nonjw have seen repeatedly are quotes written by the wt editorial staff

Nothing written gas been claimed as being inspired by your own admissions

So how does a writer of any journal religious or not make the claim that when they write commentary on various bible subjects

That any reader that disagrees with that commentary it means that one Opposes God???

Could you explain how any writer of non inspired material gets to make such a claim?????

Lets see who Jesus would say did the right thing---- The JW,s could have stood on both sides of the war in ww2-- allowing their young men to kill their own brothers in Christ standing on both sides while both sides prayed to the same God-- killed for Adolf Hitler like the trinitarian religions allowed. That is pure hipocrisy to do that. Jesus never would allow it to be--It goes against all of Jesus teachings of Love,peace,unity,return evil for evil to no one,etc. The trinitarian religions threw Jesus teachings in the garbage to kill each other in all the wars that had supposed christians standing on both sides. And the hipocrite trinitarian leaders called the JW,s cowards for standing up for Jesus and his teachings. Their bloodguilt has amassed to the heavens. Jesus also said his followers would be hated because they are no part of this world--and wars of hatred are this world.

*** it-1 p. 89 Ambassador ***
In fulfilling his role as an ambassador, Paul respected the laws of the land but remained strictly neutral toward the world’s political and military activities. This was in harmony with the principle that ambassadors of worldly governments must obey the law but are exempt from allegiance to the country to which they are sent.

Jehovah's witnesses follow that same example of neutrality, neutral to the politics of any goverment they live under, in any country and nation they live in.

Wars are made by politicians and backed by religions on this earth today, in God's new world of righteousness, there will be no wars.

Jehovah Witnesses only help other witness as far as I know. My mother is one for many years.You couldn't drag her to a soup kitchen or any charity event. She believes preaching is the only help people need. Its sad and frustrating. So far from Jesus. I just can't imaging him saying this is acceptable. It hurts how deeply she is brainwashed and the fact that she attends weekly meetings to stay indoctrinated.oh well.

Sacrificing yourself or your children on the altar of war in Satans world of hatred and conquering others for their land and resources, as gold, platinum and oil.

Brainwashing the public with propaganda of the Nation's military being the savior of peace and prosperity. When wars are the end result of the politicians inability to conquer a people with treaties and promises.

You cannot have peace on earth, that gift has to come from Almighty God Jehovah, and the only internationally united people for peace and prosperity are Jehovah's witnesses.

Peace and prosperity can be yours in God's new world of righteousness, soon to be here. Learn the truth from your Bible, Jehovah's witnesses will gladly show you what is required to have the approval of Jesus our reigning King in heaven.

Jehovah's witnesses do not have to provide any proof that they are generous, they are not like the world who blow their own horn for their charitable works.
Jehovah's witnesses do not go to war or take alternative service of war, they imitate Jesus and do not take up the sword or fight anyone, they are peaceable in imitation of Jesus, loving their fellow man, no matter what race or religion.
Being neutral today in matters of politics is because our King Jesus is already ruling over his subjects in God's heavenly kingdom.
The government we give our allegence to is heavenly not earthly, our obedience to love everyone is evidence of our being peaceful with all men. Matthew 22:39
Please spare us. The jehovah witnesses do blow there horn with the type of works they have deemed charitable ,Namely the preaching work. you brag forever about this with so much pride and print it in your literature. You must think people are stupid and don't notice you.
I am sure you will say you are not bragging but merely pointing to the facts but you have gone beyond pointing anything out because it is obvious to everyone but you jw's. Preaching is your most bragged about charity work. If you were big on other charity works as your proselytizing it would be obvious just as your proselytizing is. Just plain ole common sense.

Movie moment!

Col. Jessep: Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Lt. Weinburg? I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago, and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know. That Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said thank you, and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon, and stand a post. Either way, I don't give a !@#$ what you think you are entitled to.

What BS.
That is the best you can come up with.
Jehovah's Witnesses run no charities and do no humanitarian work.
Reading the uneducated only WBTS propaganda, is not educating, it is part of the brainwashing of a cult.
Whoop dee doo.
Real charitable works do not include that members must sign over their lives to the WBTS, to "receive" the charity.
They do however accept any and all government handouts, tax breaks, freebies and cash.
They are every part "of the world" when it comes to them getting something, they just refuse to give back.

Who hurt you? You sound a little angry. Like all people Jehovahs Witnesses are not perfect. But, I have to give it up to them. They truly do STAND out from all who profess to be christian. I had a man who told me they were the closest thing in this world to a True christian he has ever seen. He stop sudying with them because he couldnt leave his immoral lifestyle.

Jesus also made it quite clear that we would always have the poor among us and to be mindful of seeing to their physical needs....WHILE he was preaching the Gospel. The WT trains their followers to "preach the organization" as the only means of salvation and to focus on dispensing virtual mountains of WT publications that promote flip-flopping and changing doctrines as "accurate knowledge" from God.

They pay their taxes which qualifies them for government programs. I have uncle who is a JW and they do public education, disaster relief, help neighbors in disaster areas while helping other JW's. These posts / comments based on hate, ignorance and negative agenda do no good for the reader or the WTBTS. There is no benefit to the slander of good people. If you don't like their beliefs, practice your own, but don't down play or put down the good the JW's do.

As for being traitors: They pay taxes, never get involved in subversive works, never riot or loot, stay politically neutral in international matters. They have been persecuted by various governments throughout history such as Grease, Germany (Nazis), Canada, USA and many others, yet they still gave and gave support to their neighbors, paid their taxes, obey the laws that don't conflict with what they believe the bible teaches. Get a clue before you spew.
