Column: What we believe is what we believe

Dec 23, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Gaston Gazette

Many mornings we read our horoscopes, which are allegedly based on some mystical power cast by the formation of the cosmos several centuries ago.

Jesus is the way to salavation, it is his ransom sacrifice that all men must use to be forgiven for their sins. Hebrews 10:12
Jesus as King in heaven today, is caring for and protecting his subjects or sheep, unless you are separate from this world, that means identified as Jehovah's witness, you are in this world, and subjects of Satan the Devil the ruler of this world.
John 19:26,27
You are being so mislead, no where in the bible does it say one has to be part of a religion or an organization to be saved, we just have to repent our sins, and become a child of God, that starts with BELIEF. Cant you see that the organization is placing themselves before Jesus as your savior when they tell you, YOU must be a witness to be saved? No one goes to the Father without the SON, JESUS CHRIST. There is no other way, but through JESUS not a religion.

Satan did have a hold on me for 40 plus years, but I am now a Saved person who has given her life to Jesus Christ. I am saved by his bloode.

If you are baptized and you accept Christmas presents from anyone in the world, to them you are doing Christmas, you may reason in your conscience that it is fine with Jesus, so be it.
That is the same conscience that will allow someone to use blood fractions or have a blood test done on their blood. Your conscience is what Jesus judges your spiritual worth of God's word is, also the direction you obey from it, or not obey.
Jehovah's witnesses can do whatever they feel is acceptable conduct to them, and not get disciplined by the congregation, that does not mean it is acceptable to Jesus as our reigning King or Jehovah God.
Your relationship with Jehovah God is within your conscience and no one elses, you are either loyal and obedient or you are not. That is why the Scriptures direct us to beware we do not fall.
1Corinthians 10:12
Being baptized or having any title does not make you a true Christian,
anyone can be Jehovah's witness, it is only the witness that obeys the direction of Jesus that imitates him.
Hey loop job...what are you or I gonna do? Write the company? Or tick of the workplace and guy who pays your bills and feeds you and your family? You are NOT BALANCED! There is a big difference between actively CHOOSING to GO to and participate in Parties and celebrations with members of the office and what takes place between your boss and you and corporate bonuses and Holiday offering etc... You are what we used to call, "One of those...". If you spent even a fraction of your time concerning yourself with, actually yourself? You would fare a whole lot better than you do and so would every one else! "True Chrstian Witness" Hahaha! As if you are so sure or you even know what it means...arrogant much?

I repeat, the servants of Jehovah God in these last days will be tested by Satan, if you put your confidence in anyone or in your job and or the people who provide for you maintrnance and not in Almighty God Jehovah, you already failed as a true Christian.

Balance IS the operative word here....the Creator has seen to it that all He formed and gave life to...was balanced and IN balance (or in harmony) with other things. He also saw to it that our JOY was a part of that harmony and balance so that those who take things to "the extreme" on ANYTHING (as we see this LACK of joy exhibited by a few WTS defenders here)....ARE seriously OUT of balance and keeping things in heir own lives, out of kilter.

Take for instance, this business about head coverings being worn or not worn when conducting a WT home indoctrination study.....or whether to stand, sit or hurriedly leave the arena when a national anthem is being played....NONE of these issues have a THING to do with worship of our Great Creator or His Son. It is ALL just foolish and man-added window dressing to make the WTS followers appear to be more pious, more righteous and more favored by the WT god who they claim to have a sole monopoly on.

James 3:17 "But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.".....the WTS leaders have devoted so doggone much time and misleading effort in conjuring up new rules and regulations that often go back to mimic the same laws that were nailed to the Cross once and for all time!

Would the WTS even survive had it stuck to what the one they CLAIM is their leader said: "You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind. And you must love your neighbor as yourself."
...Luke 10:27

"Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" Paul and Silas replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved …" (Acts 16:30-31, NIV).

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied:“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind....MT 22:36-37

Truly...I see nothing to indicate being required BY GOD....where anyone is expected to automatically accept and adopt all the many many NEW LAWS that the GB as the modern-day Pharisees, has issued as mandatory fare to be "pleasing to God".

Jehovah's witnesses are giving the evidence needed to show mankind they are doing God's will on Earth today,
they are the only people Jehovah God is using to help the meek and humble to survive the end of this world, soon to be here. Matthew 24:14

Your failure to be obedient to this specific direction, shows your heart attitude toward Almighty God's son and King Jesus, no one can become Jehovah's witness unless Jehovah God draws you.

(John 6:44, 45). . .No man can come to me unless the Father, who sent me, draws him;

Many people believe they are Jehovah's witnesses because they have been baptized, but being baptized does not make you Jehovah's witness or a true Christian.
Matthew 7:21-23

Almighty God Jehovah makes you his witness, it is your love for Him and his righteousness that he uses to mold into the person he wants to serve him.
Isaiah 64:8

If you are not producing or accomplishing your own ministry of making disciples and preaching God's word to people to help them know, love, and serve Jehovah God, you most certainly are not a true Christian.

37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38This is the first and great commandment.

39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

I love the Lord my God with all my heart,soul, and mind. But yet you and the GB aka F&DS say that just because I am not a JW I am not saved. SHOW ME from the BIBLE where it says that.

I love my neighbor, I speak to everyone I know about the Lord and what he did for all of us. But your GB aka F&DS says that because I don't go door to door and call myself a JW I am not going to be saved. Please SHOW ME from the BIBLE where it says this. You have been ask more than once to show me this, but as of yet, just like the rest of the JWs here you cant seem to do it, why is that? Could it be because it is not true?

Thank you for that judgment God. Do you not see where you have put yourself? You have no rights to judge me,just as I have no rights to judge you. I love Jehovah, and he loves me! You or the GB cant take that from me. I love Jesus and he loves me! You are the GB cant take that from me either. Who have you dedicated your life to, now think carefully before you answer. If you are baptized, you dedicated your life to a religion, to an organization. I dedicated my life to the LORD! Big difference there. Tell me, which one do you think the Lord would approve of? You are so wrapped up in the words of men, that you still cant show me from the bible where it say that I must be a Jehovah's witness, or from some organization (which the word is never in the bible) as proof of what you are saying. There is no religion in this world that will save you, only belief in Jesus Christ will do that. When you allow these men to make you believe that you must be a JW to be saved, you are allowing them to take your eternal salvation from you. Am I judging you, nope, Jehovah and Jesus will do that for believing men over their words in the bible.

"You are not the sort that Jehovah God wants to serve Him" ~ You need to be very, very careful about the presumptuous and potentially damning statements, judgements and proclamations you have made on this forum...they may very well be your own undoing! I would very quickly remove yourself from the seat(s) in which you have improperly seated yourself and change your mindset while you have the time and that is all I have to say...

The Scriptures are very clear what sort of person is acceptable to Jehovah God, I only agree with them. I am not judging anyone, by the evidence I read, it is clear Karen is not humble or meek according to the Scriptures or the word of Jehovah.

I wonder what sort Jehovah wants? I read my bible daily, I go to church twice on Sunday and on Wednesday night. I tell everyone I meet about What Jesus did for them, and how much he loves them, and how he can change their lives, but I guess thats still not enough? Seems to me the only thing I don't do that a JW does, Is follow the words of men, and call myself a JW. How can they be so blind?

Am I a sinner, yes just as everyone alive is.

I am not judging you, you already judged yourself as saved. I only pointed out that if you were not Jehovah's witness, that is by your decision and my conclusion is that you are not meek or humble to accept Jehovah's way of salavation.

Wrong! You judged me as not the sort that Jehovah would want.Admit it, you judged me. I am saved, aren't you? If you don't know, you are not doing something right. Read these scriptures and tell me what and who we must believe in to be saved. And they tell me, I am saved.

John 1:12—But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.

John 3:14-18—And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

John 3:36—He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.

John 6:35—And Jesus said to them,“I am the bread of life. He who comes [by faith] to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”



John 6:40—And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in Him may have everlasting life; and I will raise him up at the last day.



John 6:47—Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me has everlasting life.



John 6:59—Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God

John 7:38—He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.



John 8:24, 58—Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not believe that I am He, you will die in your sins.... Jesus said to them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM."



John 9:35-38—Jesus heard that they had cast him out; and when He had found him, He said to him,“Do you believe in the Son of God?” He answered and said,“Who is He, Lord, that I may believe in Him?” And Jesus said to him,“You have both seen Him and it is He who is talking with you.” Then he said,“Lord, I believe!” And he worshiped Him.

Acts 16:31, 34—So they said,“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”...

Acts 26:18—To open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.


Romans 10:8-11—But what does it say? "The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart" : that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart [reinforcing the fact that faith must be genuine] that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation [the natural outgrowth of an inward imputation of righteousness, which is solely by faith]. For the Scripture says,“Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.”

Don't just look at them and not read them, but READ them and see what they say.

I believe in the name of the Son of God, I believe in his name, I believe! And the scripture tells me what I obtain because of truly believing..

1 John 5:13—These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, THAT YOU MAY KNOW THAT YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
