Don't be like Satan, attempting to take me away from my God with nothing better other than fending for myself! Show me something better!

Today's text:

Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations.—Matt. 28:19.

Zealous Christians continue to obey that command, striving “to bear thorough witness to the good news.”(Acts 20:24) A key method of doing so is by means of what Paul mentioned to the Ephesian elders—house-to-house preaching. In a 2007 book on effective missionary work, David G. Stewart, Jr., said:“The practical, applied focus of the Jehovah’s Witnesses has proven far more effective at inspiring member-missionary participation than abstract, theoretical [urgings from pulpits]. For many Jehovah’s Witnesses, sharing their beliefs with others is a favorite activity.” The result?“In 1999, only 2 to 4 percent of people I surveyed in two Eastern European capitals reported ever being approached by Latter-day Saints or ‘Mormon’ missionaries. Over 70 percent reported being personally approached by Jehovah’s Witnesses, often multiple times.” w08 12/15 4:10, 11

Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world.

According to your reasoning they would be the only true organization.

But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, and will bring swift destruction on themselves.
Many will follow their unrestrained ways, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed.
In their greed they will exploit you with deceptive words. Their condemnation,[pronounced] long ago, is not idle, and their destruction does not sleep.
2 Peter 2:1-3

Many will follow their unrestrained ways, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed.

Perhaps you should look to those who are actually LIVING according to Bible principles rather than those who follow man-made rules laid down by a religious publishing company, regardless of what religious organization they might attend.

You seek out the man-made and follow men, but call it God.

It comes down to this.
Do the JW's preach THE GOSPEL?

All evidence would point to a big NO.
They preach ANOTHER GOSPEL, a DIFFERENT GOSPEL.
Therefore their evangelism is useless.
All the 'converts' they make are not to the glory of God, they are not baptized into the death and body of Christ, they receive no justification, no sanctification, no adoption, no regeneration, no redemption in the JW religion. They are made into reformed moralists making them twice the sons of hell due to self righteous deeds done in the name of 'faith'.

One verse is not the only good news in the bible dude!!! The entire bible is filled with good news, which can be pretty much summed up to the fact that God gave his Son as a ransom to pay for the sin that was inherited by Adam, that Jesus died for all who have faith in him, we teach that, we even get down to the details, so please refrain from speaking about thing you know absolutely nothing about. You probably never even been to a kingdom hall or had a study with one of Jehovah's Christian Witnesses!

Is that the "good news" that you (or any other JW) preach when you go door-to-door?

I have never, ever heard a JW preach that when they come to my door.

Look at your first paragraph,

"The entire bible is filled with good news, which can be pretty much summed up to the fact that God gave his Son as a ransom to pay for the sin that was inherited by Adam, that Jesus died for all who have faith in him,"

Absolute agreement with you.

Then have a look at your second paragraph

"we teach that, we even get down to the details, so please refrain from speaking about thing you know absolutely nothing about. You probably never even been to a kingdom hall or had a study with one of Jehovah's Christian Witnesses"

You know what's wrong about that?
You are fostering reliance on man, and not one word about Gods Holy Spirit, that is leading us into all truth .
You are fostering the idea that it where a person goes that determines his being a Christian, and not anything about the fact its coming to Jesus who gives everyone who exercises faith in him, a new spirit a Holy Spirit.

You see Duh Boy, back when Peter preached the gospels to a crowd, they yelled out ' what should we do?'

The Apostles didn't say ' you should join us and our brotherhood and we will feed you constantly from Gods word, because we have a lovely brotherhood."'

No! they did not speak like that, really hear what the answer they gave was.
"repent and be baptized and you will receive the free gift of the Holy Spirit, for this promise is to you and your children..."

You don't talk like that, because you don't know Jesus yet.

What kind of brotherhood demands obedience and loyalty to whatever they "currently" teach and never apologizes for all the mistakes, goof ups and stupidity that they print as "food from God"?

WE know what kind that is....but will the WTS defenders recognize it?

PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THIS. I AM USING A WATCHTOWER QUOTE. SOMETHING FROM THEIR OWN MATERIAL.

__________

When Jehovah's Witnesses preach their 'gospel' or 'good news' of the kingdom, they are actually preaching the docrtine of Christ's invisible return in 1914. They freely acknowledge that the 'good news' they preach is not the same as the gospel or Good News preached by Christians down through the centuries. But they think it is wonderful that they have a DIFFERENT good news.

The Watchtower, 10/1/80 page 28-29
the Kingdom witnessing of Jehovah's Witnesses since 1914 has been something far different from what Christendom's missionaries have published both before and since 1914. "Different"- how so?. What Jehovah's Witnesses have preached world wide since 1918 is something unique...the preaching of this good news of the Messianic kingdom as having been established in the heavens in 1914.

But the bible plainly warns against the preaching of another gospel.

Gal 1:8 But even if we or an angel from Heaven preach a gospel to you beside what we preached to you, let him be accursed.
Gal 1:9 As we said before, and now I say again, If anyone preaches a gospel to you beside what you have received, let him be accursed.

Let me ask you and be honest with this, "Did the apostle Paul teach the disciples in Galatia that Christ would return in 1914 and set up a visible organization with headquarters in Brooklyn, New York?"

If not, then the Watchtower leaders "good news" is "something beyond" what Galatians accepted-placing them under Gods curse for teaching another gospel.

Duh-boy,

Did Jesus pay for the personal sins that you have committed, do now commit and will in the future commit?
