I don't think any JW never takes the time to read the book of Romans. If he or she did read that book then that would be the end of his self-righteous ness and legalism. To all JWs, I beg you to read that book alone without the WTS and I guarantee you that you would discover the wonderful grace of God.

My favorite scripture in Romans is 15:4--

"For all the things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction, that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope."

What do you make of this?...

Romans 8:1-11
1 Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus, 2 because the Spirit’s law of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. 3 What the law could not do since it was limited by the flesh, God did. He condemned sin in the flesh by sending His own Son in flesh like ours under sin’s domain, and as a sin offering, 4 in order that the law’s requirement would be accomplished in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. 5 For those whose lives are according to the flesh think about the things of the flesh, but those whose lives are according to the Spirit, about the things of the Spirit. 6 For the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set of the Spirit is life and peace. 7 For the mind-set of the flesh is hostile to God because it does not submit itself to God’s law, for it is unable to do so. 8 Those whose lives are in the flesh are unable to please God. 9 You, however, are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, since the Spirit of God lives in you. But if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Him. 10 Now if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead lives in you, then He who raised Christ from the dead will also bring your mortal bodies to life through His Spirit who lives in you.

JW's buy into that falsehood without blinking an eye because they are unredeemed and fleshly inclined.

They want something tangible to believe in and the false prophet Governing Body hands it to them in the form of a paradise earth.

Advice to all faithful Jehovah Witnesses from your kind loving governing body:

You may be concerned with popular opinion as the Moon enters your tenth house of career and status today. Many of your physical activities these days are directed to satisfying personal needs and goals. Consciously or subconsciously you seek to bring everything into your world rather than the other way around. People in authority may be moody and changeable now, so steer clear of unnecessary confrontations.

Beautiful portion of scripture. We are always being reminded to concentrate on spiritual things instead of fleshly things. We who go out preaching the good news to anyone and everyone are encouraged to meditate and gain the spirit of christ who showed real compassion and love for people. We are constantly reminded to seek the spirit of Jehovah. Beautiful material based around these scriptures are common.

I don't read apostate literature.

Why don't you try to explain what Romans 8:1-11 refers to and means.
