If Jehovah's Witnesses do not believe the Holy Bible to the 't',they are not telling the WHOLE TRUTH about the Lord Jehovah Yahweh of His Son,the Lord Jesus Christ.

There would be ZERO jehovah's witnesses in the world.
In John 5:39-40 Jesus says,“You are searching the Scriptures, because you think that by means of them you will have everlasting life…And yet you do not want to COME TO ME that you may have life.”
Jehovah’s Witnesses are constantly “searching the scriptures”, but do they come directly to Jesus as he says they should (Mt 11:28, Jn 5:40)?
Do Witnesses “come” to Jesus by praying directly to him?
NO! It's not allowed by the GOVERNING BODY which makes all the man-made rules these deluded followers must follow.
Unfortunately, the witnesses are exactly like the people Jesus was talking about in John 5:39-40!
John - 4339
“YOU are searching the Scriptures, because YOU think that by means of them YOU will have everlasting life; and these are the very ones that bear witness about me. 40 And yet YOU do not want to come to me that YOU may have life. 41 I do not accept glory from men, 42 but I well know that YOU do not have the love of God in YOU. 43 I have come in the name of my Father, but YOU do not receive me;

Jesus Christ set us a fine example of working at what we pray for. He taught us to pray:“Let your name be sanctified.”(Matthew 6:9) But Jesus also did all he could so that his listeners might sanctify his Father’s name. Likewise, Jesus did not limit himself to praying:“Father, glorify your name.”(John 12:28) No, he did what he could to glorify his Father’s name and to get others to do so.—Luke 5:23-26; 17:12-15; John 17:4.

Seeing the great spiritual need that the people had, Jesus said to his disciples:“The harvest is great, but the workers are few. Therefore, beg the Master of the harvest [Jehovah God] to send out workers into his harvest.”(Matthew 9:37, 38)

Did Jesus let matters go at that? Not at all!

Right after that, he sent out his 12 apostles in pairs on a preaching, or ‘harvesting,’ tour. Later, Jesus sent out the 70 evangelizers to do the same work.—Matthew 10:1-10; Luke 10:1-9.

Here is yet another essential aspect of how to pray.

Jesus said:“No one comes to the Father except through me.”(John 14:6)

So Jesus is the means of our approach to the Father, Jehovah.

Jesus told his followers to pray in his name.(John 14:13; 15:16)

That does not mean that we should pray to Jesus. Rather, we pray in the name of Jesus, remembering that Jesus is the reason that we are able to approach our perfect and holy Father.

While the majority insist on their independence, and go along with the crowd in traveling the broad road to destruction, a way of return has opened up. While he was here on this earth, Jesus, the Son of God, called attention to this, saying:“I am the way and the truth and the life.”(John 14:6)

Because Jesus faithfully did God’s will on earth, even to sacrificing his life in behalf of the human family, God appointed him to be “the Chief Agent of Life.” He also came into the world to “bear witness to the truth” and to make known God’s purposes.(Acts 3:15; John 18:37)

He alone is able to show members of the human family the way back to the beautiful highway that leads on to the full enjoyment of a happy life in the earthly paradise of God.

The evil and wicked cult of jehovah's witnesses teach that only 144,000 will go to Heaven.

Where does scripture tell us that Heaven is limited to 144,000?

The scripture does not exist.

Did the Watchtower (the cult of jehovah's witnesses) claim that they “never” published a biography of Pastor Russell?

“But, is it true you have never published a biography of Pastor Russell?… That’s right. Jehovah’s Witnesses admire the qualities he possessed as a man, but were we to give the honor and credit to Pastor Russell, we would be saying that the works and success were his; but Jehovah’s witnesses believe it is God’s spirit that guides and directs his people.”—Jehovah’s Witnesses in the Divine Purpose, 1959, p. 63

What “Biography” was published in the 1923-1927 editions of the Watchtower book, The Divine Plan of the Ages, volume 1 of their Studies in the Scriptures series?

“Biography of Pastor Russell… Charles Taze Russell, known the world over as Pastor Russell, author, lecturer and minister of the gospel, was born at Pittsburgh, Pa, February 16, 1852.”—The Divine Plan of the Ages, 1886, 1925ed, p. 1

Since the evidence accuses the Watchtower Society of dishonesty in their 1959 history book, does the Society now admit that they published Russell’s biography?

“A brief biography of Russell along with his will and testament was published in The Watch Tower of December 1, 1916, as well as in subsequent editions of the first volume of Studies in the Scriptures.”—Jehovah’s Witnesses — Proclaimers of God’s Kingdom, 1993, p. 64

Why do you think the Watchtower covered-up Russell’s Biography for over 30 years (from 1959 to 1993)? Is there a significant statement to be found in the December 1, 1916 Watch Tower that was dedicated to Russell and his biography?

“Charles Taze Russell, thou hast, by the Lord, been crowned a king; and through the everlasting ages they name shall be known amongst the people, and thy enemies shall come and worship at thy feet.”—The Watch Tower, December 1, 1916, p. 377

If the Jehovah’s Witnesses were engaged in “creature worship” of Charles Russell after his death, why would Jesus have appointed this organization to be God’s representative on earth?

“…the idea adopted by many was that C. T. Russell himself was the ‘faithful and wise servant.’ This led some into the snare of creature worship.”—1975 Yearbook of Jehovah’s Witnesses, p. 88

Does the Watchtower claim that in 1933 the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Berlin held to an “immovable neutral position” that refused to support the “ideology” of Hitler and his regime?

“An appeal for understanding… Jehovah’s Witnesses organized a convention in Berlin, Germany, on June 25, 1933. Some 7,000 persons assembled… The immovable neutral position of the Witnesses, along with their loyalty to God’s Kingdom, was unacceptable to the Hitler government. The Nazis did not intend to tolerate any refusal to support their ideology.”—Awake! August 22, 1995, pp. 6-7

According to the 1934 Yearbook of Jehovah’s Witnesses, what did the Jehovah’s Witnesses actually tell Hitler regarding their “position” toward the “principles advocated by the government of Germany”?

“The greatest and the most oppressive empire on earth is the Anglo-American empire… It has been the commercial Jews of the British-American empire that have built up and carried on Big Business as a means of exploiting and oppressing the peoples of many nations… The present government of Germany has declared emphatically against Big Business oppressors and in opposition to the wrongful religious influence in the political affairs of the nation. Such is exactly our position… Instead of being against the principles advocated by the government of Germany, we stand squarely for such principles.”—1934 Yearbook of Jehovah’s Witnesses, pp. 134-136

Does the Watchtower claim that “adjustments” in the organization’s viewpoints have never been to “previous points of view”?

“At times explanations given by Jehovah’s visible organization have shown adjustments, seemingly to previous points of view. But this has not actually been the case.”—The Watchtower, December 1, 1981, p. 27

How can we know the difference between a true prophet and a false prophet?

“True, there have been those in times past who predicted an ‘end of the world,’ even announcing a specific date.…Yet, nothing happened. The ‘end’ did not come. They were guilty of false prophesying. Why? What was missing?…Missing from such people were God’s truths and the evidence that he was guiding and using them.”—Awake!, October 8, 1968, p. 23 **

Has the Watchtower Society claimed to be God’s “prophet”?

“So, does Jehovah have a prophet to help them, to warn them of dangers and to declare things to come?…He had a “prophet” to warn them. This “prophet” was not one man, but was a body of men and women. It was the small group of footstep followers of Jesus Christ, known at that time as International Bible Students. Today they are known as Jehovah’s Christian witnesses.…Of course, it is easy to say that this group acts as a “prophet” of God. It is another thing to prove it. The only way that this can be done is to review the record. What does it show?”—The Watchtower, April 1, 1972, p. 197

What does the Watchtower Society’s record show? Did the Society proclaim that 1914 would “end” world governments?

“…the ‘battle of the great day of God Almighty’(Rev. 16:14), which will end in A.D. 1914 with the complete overthrow of earth’s present rulership, is already commenced.”—The Time is At Hand, Studies in the Scriptures, vol. 2, 1886, 1911 edition, p. 101

How sure was the Society that the date 1914 would not be “changed” and that it was “not the date for the beginning, but for the end”?

“We see no reason for changing the figures—nor could we change them if we would. They are, we believe, God’s dates, not ours. But bear in mind that the end of 1914 is not the date for the beginning, but for the end of the time of trouble.”—Zion’s Watch Tower, July 15, 1894, p. 226-231 [Watchtower Reprints, p. 1677]

When 1918 failed, what date did the Society give for the “old world” to end and the “new order” to begin with the “resurrection” of the Old Testament saints?

“…the old order of things, the old world, is ending and is therefore passing away, and that the new order is coming in, and that 1925 shall mark the resurrection of the faithful worthies of old… it is reasonable to conclude that millions of people now on the earth will be still on the earth in 1925. Then, based upon the promises set forth in the divine Word, we must reach the positive and indisputable conclusion that millions now living will never die.”—Millions Now Living Will Never Die, 1920, p. 97
