thanks,
it's not easy to spot out the false teachers until they said something one don't agree.
at least i pity them and gave them chairs to sit while they preach and food too.
it's annoying when they are not well versed in bible doctrines and
wanting to teach bible house to house.
one question to them, took a week to reply.
the sheeps recognise the sheperd's voice.
It is easy to spot on false churches and JW teachings,
if You are SAVED BY Gods Grace and you are His child truly born again only from Gods Spirit,without of any man or church assistance,
John 1;13.3;3-8

be always prepared after pray and ask god for help,
because JW have method to deceive very quickly person in spiritual need and spiritualy poor.

you are right,true sheeps always will follow true Shepherd Jesus Christ

true,

i encountered twice different jws at my door and after the third time
i felt uneasy about their teaching so I rejected their bible study.

online in utube we can find bible study and learn from the different teachings.

further more
i don't like people knocking at my door asking me to open up my bible and read out their requested verses, especially when i am not free at that moment.

they should go and teach those who does not know christ instead of wasting time on some one who already knew and accepted christ.

They don't care how you feel about Jesus, they want you to join their religion. Jesus has nothing to do with it, so your relationship with him is a moot point.

The Brooklyn Heights Community or neighborhood people who have had the protection of Almighty God Jehovah's holy spirit, will now experience the spirit of the world over them.

Jesus said the spirit of this world or the god of this world is Satan the Devil. 2Corinthians 4:4

They will now experience this world's influence on them and they can look to the god of this world for their protection, they won't get anything but problems.

let me tell you
the Gods Spirit is completly departed from all churches worldwide and JW,
also without of Gods Spirit whole religious earthly system is under influence of satan spirit included JW leadership,corupted by this world and worshiping gold calf-money in the banks and their real eastate KH properties,
also Jw From Brooklyn leaderships,heir teachings today are devil spirit teachings full of Lies.2 Cor 11;3-15,2 Thess 2;3-12.Isaiah 14;13-14,Rev 17.18
And rev 18;4-5,,,,,,,Urgent encouragent is to get away from all churches and organization like JW+38001 christ devil spirit sects.

no exception,exist only one spiritual mountain,Kingdom of God and His heavenly Spiritual Church in the heavens,not on the earth 2 Thes 2;1

Well, that is just the most bizarre thing I have ever heard. A tax-exempt religious publishing company caused Jehovah to protect all of Brooklyn?

Come on...you don't actually believe that, do you?

The Publishing company itself is a tecnically a business, but JW's only business. Does not mean our Org. is one. They have done publishing for other people, not just JW's.

But the ones who claims to be true Christians are the biggest hypocrtics. . You guy makes me want to be a JW just to put it in your faces. I use to want to beat the living day lights out of all them stupid people who thinks Jesus is God. Why do you think Asians just think Christians are idiots. Just listen to yourselves... Buhahaha

You're Budhist? Sure you are. You really should learn about the religion you are claiming to be before you post such a hate filled post.

Do you think that maybe, possibly, the above poster is a JW who is flat-out lying? Could that be possible?

Well been a Buddhist all my life, but just like the rest of the world, I ain't practicing it. Forget enlightens this is just fun. I love to hear Christians bash each other. They been killing each other for centuries. I am not hating what hasn't been hated. I came across this forum to find a bunch of people arguing about religion, but none of them lives by it. You are no different from me.

You can think of me as who ever you like. Hahaha. Internet simply helps people like me dig my ass out of boredom. Seriously, please tell me you don't take this online crapping and trolling serious. Call me little Sunshine, but I am far from it. I like rooting for the underdog, it in my blood. Yes yes...all my comments are off the wall and subject, but dang it is all in good fun. Wonders why you would pick a SN as RedHorse Woman. That should be the next topix.
