The great day of Jehovah is near.—Zeph. 1:14.
A storm that threatens the very existence of the human race is approaching. It is a figurative “day of storm.” This “great day of Jehovah” will affect all mankind. However, we can find the refuge we need.(Zeph. 1:15-18) The day of Jehovah will break out with the destruction of all false religious systems on earth. As to how to find refuge, we can look for the answer in the history of God’s ancient people. The great day of Jehovah that struck Jerusalem in 607 B.C.E. was an indication of the judgment to come upon apostate Christendom in our time. Furthermore, the rest of “Babylon the Great,” the world empire of false religion, will be destroyed. Thereafter, the remaining parts of Satan’s wicked system of things will be annihilated. Yet, God’s people as a group will survive because they are taking refuge in Jehovah.—Rev. 7:14; 18:2, 8; 19:19-21. w11 1/15 1:2, 3, 5

How do you know that you don't fit in the category of false religion? Look at the failed prophecies for one thing.
The great day of Jehovah has been near for a long time, remember one thing, his timetable is different than yours.
These scare tactics are used to keep people in the organization, but it is not working, honest hearted people see thru them.

I know that I'm not part of false religion, becaus we are doing all the things Jesus said do, despite error.

We can look for the answer in Jesus Christ

Acts 4:12
Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.

Do you know of anybody who is part of false religion who knows they are part of false religion saying "I am part of false religion"?

Duh!!

Subjective self-deluded self-appraisal of your own religion is not the answer.

Jesus Christ is the answer!

According to you Mary, there is no one on the face of the earth that fits the following scripture right:

Paul and Bar′na·bas said:
(Acts 13:47). . .‘I have appointed you as a light of nations, for you to be a salvation to the extremity of the earth. . .

Jw's have put Armaggedon on hold for a while, until they finish all their building projects!

I'm very well aware that I belong to the only true religion on the face of the earth despite mistakes. The bible is the infalliable word of God and I have checked, re-checked, and will continue to check who is following it closely. My research has lead me to the Jehovah's Witnesses, depsite there error. None have shown me otherwise.

Not really. I take it you didn't go the hall yesterday. We couldn't put Armageddon on hold if we wanted to. We are very much in the feet of Daniel's prophecy regarding the immense image. Yet, the preaching work must be done and supported.

The false religion interpretation is a JW thing. It makes them feel special as if they have all the answers.
I have said in the past and will repeat, Jehovah will judge on heart condition, not denomination.
No religion is 100% right or wrong. After the Israelites, Jehovah did designation a special people for his name, if He did prove this to me.
Jesus did not go house to house, and he was not arrogant. He did make up all kinds of rules, or treat people like they were inhuman, shunning them, judging them. Are you truly following Jesus or man?

I'm confident that if you lived in the first-century and had this kind of attitude that you would have rejected all the apostles and older men. They were God's chosen. You could not follow Jesus if you rejected their God given responsibility. It is my bible-based opinion that men exist today that should be respected and listened to just like you would have had to respect and listen to the older men in all the congregations who were united to do God's will.

The false religion understanding is a bible thing, i.e. the book of Revelation. Babylon the Great, riding on the back of the beast. Sound familar. Who or what do you think the harlot is? What does your church teach?

Wrong!

All Christians bring the light of the good news of salvation to the extremities of the earth

Matthew 5:14
You are the light of the world.

John 12:36
While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.

Acts 13:47
The Lord has commanded us: "I have set you as a light to the Gentiles, to bring salvation to the farthest corners of the earth.”

Philippians 2:15
You shine as lights in the world

1 Thessalonians 5:5
You are all sons of light and sons of the day.

As for Jehovah's Witnesses and their false hope of man-made salvation, Jesus has this warning:

Matthew 6:23
If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

So it is your belief that all Christians no matter there denomination are the light! I respectfully disagree. True Christians would be organized to do God's will in a brotherhood, not divided through out different denominations or not congregating at all. This is evident to me when I read from Acts to the book of Jude.

Here is a little test that I have come up with in my research. If I ask you where can I go to worship with like believers and you can not point me to a true congregation, rather you scoff at me and say I will only direct you to Christ, you have a gaping whole in your Christian life missing!

If asked Paul, where could I go to worship with like believers to assist me in following Christ and worshipping God more fully, he wouldn't scoff at me! Rather he would point me to specific place to worship. He wouldn't say, go anywhere who professes Christ. He would say watch out for those men, for although they profess Christ, they reject certain aspects of Christian life, go here instead.

So let me ask you Mary, if JW's are false, where can I go to worship with true Christians?

If that is what I believed, you would be right to disagree.

All true Christians see the different denominations, those claiming only their's is the true way, as divisive and sinful. Jesus and the apostles taught us to avoid man-made divisions in the body of Christ.

The truth is that all true Christians bring the light of the good news of salvation to the extremities of the earth

Matthew 5:14
You are the light of the world.

John 12:36
While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.

Yes, I will direct you to Christ, as Jesus says I should.

Jesus will then direct the Holy Spirit, not I, to point you to a true congregation.

Jesus will be your Shepherd, not I.

Psalm 23:2
He makes me to lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still waters.

Revelation 7:17
For the Lamb in the center of the throne will be their Shepherd, and will guide them to springs of the water of life

There is no gaping whole in my Christian life thank you very much!

Your whole mind set is wrong, very worldly and not spiritual.

Why are you asking men and women what you should be asking of God?

That method has got you in the spiritual mess you are in today.

Men and women will lead you astray, but God will direct you where He wills.

You get down on your knees and ask Jesus Christ where to go to worship with true Christians.

If you are sincere, prepare to have your life turned around big style!

Are you looking for a building so that you can worship properly?

I think the Bible says "where two or more are gathered in MY name, there I am in their midst"

Would not any two Christian believers be sufficient to worship God with? Or, maybe I could actually worship God even if I am alone.

Good point borgfree

The Samaritan woman asked Jesus about the physical location of where she should go so that she could worship properly

Jesus made no mention of Kingdom Hall!

John 4:20-24
"Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship." Jesus said to her,“Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

Jesus explained is was nothing to do with a physical location

The harlot in Revelation is not identified, it is symbolism. As far as rejecting Jesus and the apostles, I don't think so. You are like the Pharisees and judges others and think that you are the only one that sees things correctly.

You don't know me or what my convictions are, so how could you even judge me, how could you say that you are confident that I would reject Jesus. Your mind is totally closed to anything that is not JW dogma and this is shown by what you post.
