It's really sad that people cannot give up their pagan inspired Christmas and are enslaved by traditions of men. God have mercy on them.

Have you gone to Jesus in prayer and asked Him to forgive you of your personal sins, asked Him to be the Lord of your life and change your heart?

If so, then you have eternal life.

If not, why are you delaying?

Don't feel sorry for us, you don't even know us. Feel sorry for yourself that you are so brainwashed and arrogant.

If you're visiting the shops today you'll be very tempted to buy yourself some little treats. Now, before you get carried away you should read this: they don't have to cost a fortune. So remember that when your hand strays to the most expensive item in the shop or you start to convince yourself that your life won't be worth living without that extremely expensive sweater. Hold it!

Why do you follow up my posts? What you said is not true, and you know it. The truth that you have learned has not stopped you from judging or your nastiness or sarcasm, has it now.

slavery to men's traditions.
If you are speaking of the "truth" of Jehovahs Witnesses, you are now enslaved to mens traditions. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the LIFE. No religion, no organization on the earth can save you without him. When you get baptized, you will be baptized in the name of the Organization of Jehovah's Witnesses. when did the bible tell us to start baptizing in that manner?

*** w1985 6/1 30 Subjecting Ourselves to Jehovah by Dedication ***
The first question is:
On the basis of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, have you repented of your sins and dedicated yourself to Jehovah to do his will?
The second is:
Do you understand that your dedication and baptism identify you as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in association with God’s spirit-directed organization?
Having answered yes to these questions, candidates are in a right heart condition to undergo Christian baptism.

*** w1987 4/15 12 Gaining Peace With God Through Dedication and Baptism ***
By baptism you identify yourself as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in association with God’s worldwide congregation.

Now read

*** w1955 7/1 411 Christian Baptism for the New World Society ***
15 A Christian, therefore, cannot be baptized in the name of the one actually doing the immersing or in the name of any man, nor in the name of any organization, but in the name of the Father, the Son and the holy spirit. This shows, among other things, that Christianity is not a denominational affair, that sects have nothing to do with it.“Does the Christ exist divided? Paul was not impaled for you, was he? Or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I am thankful I baptized none of you except Crispus and Gaius, so that no one may say that you were baptized in my name.”—1 Cor. 1:13-15, NW.

*** w1958 8/1 478 Baptism ***
22 It is essential that with the mouth a public declaration of faith be made. Two
questions are therefore asked the candidates:(1) Have you recognized yourself before Jehovah God as a sinner who needs salvation, and have you acknowledged to him that this salvation proceeds from him, the Father, through his Son Jesus Christ?(2) On the basis of this faith in God and in his provision for salvation have you dedicated yourself unreservedly to God to do his will henceforth as he reveals it to you through Jesus Christ and through the Bible under the enlightening power of the holy spirit? 23 Everyone who can answer “Yes” to these questions is eligible for baptism and should take this step without hesitation or delay.

*** w1960 5/15 308 "What Prevents Me from Getting Baptized?" ***
23 The first question is: Have you recognized yourself before Jehovah God as a sinner who needs salvation, and have you acknowledged to him that this salvation proceeds from him, the Father, through his Son Jesus Christ?
24 The second question is: On the basis of this faith in God and in his provision for salvation have you dedicated yourself unreservedly to God to do his will henceforth as he reveals it to you through Jesus Christ and through the Bible under the enlightening power of the holy spirit?
25 Everyone who has answered “Yes” to these two questions is eligible for baptism and should be baptized at that same circuit or district assembly of Jehovah’s witnesses.

*** w1973 5/1 280 Baptizing Follows Discipling ***
we suggest that you consider the following two questions, which are asked of
candidates for baptism:
(1) Have you repented of your sins and turned around, recognizing yourself before Jehovah God as a condemned sinner who needs salvation, and have you acknowledged to him that this salvation proceeds from him, the Father, through his SonJesus Christ?
(2) On the basis of this faith in God and in his provision for salvation, have you dedicated yourself unreservedly to God to do his will henceforth as he reveals it to you through Jesus Christ and through the Bible under the enlightening power of the holy spirit?

hey, I agree with you. I also learned the truth also and that truth set me free. I have a little with that truth and let me tell you what it is: the Watchtower promised that Abraham would be back on earth since 1925 at Beth Sarim in San Diego. Abraham was supposed to have a Barbecue at Beth Sarim and I invited myself so I can a piece of Abraham barbecue. I waited and waited but I got hungry because Abraham never showed up. I left the WTS because of that. Man0711, do you think I did the right thing?

You may not be one now, but you are trying to be one. You need to know the facts about them before you become one.

Just don't keep your head in the sand about what they have done or said in the past. All religions have some bad in their past, none of them are perfect, but you can tell the ones who are closer to the truth by how they view Jesus. Look into the religion about how they view Jesus and find out who they think he really is. Then go to the Internet or a library, whichever one is easier on you, and find the truth about things they say. The only way to find the truth is through Jesus, not a religion or organizaiton. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. It is in Jesus name that we will be saved, not the name of a religion or organization.

Man711, do not beleive any one that you are brainwashed. You are not. You have the truth, man. You have the truth because you know where Jehovah lives because the WTS tells you that He lives in the planet Acylone or something like that. You know the truth because you that Jerusalem was destroyed in 607 bce. You know the truth becaused Jesus returned invisibly in 1871 0r better yet 1914. You the truth about how unblical vaccines are. You know the truth because the world ended since 1975. You know the truth because you always know the meaning of "generation". You know the truth, man. You got it. Do not let anybody make you feel that you are brainwashed. At the end of you know that Jesus came and appointed the WTS as God only true organization on earth. By the way, Russel was a genious by using the pyramids to arrived at 1914. Jesus was really impressed. So Man711, keep up the good works. I am with you, bro.

I know, man. I am still thinking about the barbecue. Do you think Abraham is still coming to Beth Sarim. A brother from Bethel told that Abraham got a flat tire and that is he is so late. I want to go back to WTS but I want to know if Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are still coming.

*I already know more about them then you do. "but you can tell the ones who are closer to the truth by how they view Jesus." You are so right and if you believe a trinty then well what can I say.
