What about Leo Greenless On the GB molested Mark Palo and that is fact and all they did is sent him to Canada and covered it up .I m not judging everyone in the JWs but my point is how can you laugh and point out everything that is wrong with everyone else's faith and refuse to look at your own I thought it was trust in God not the GB. Now I'm not saying everything is all true such as what people say but all is not a lie either. And I do know alot of witnesses try to live a pure life and are good folks .Satan is the master of deception is he not . So if Jesus declared your GB to be clean how can all the other things be . How can they make so many mistakes and have blood on their hands and change what they believe so much it doesn't really make sense does it .My questions are true questions could you answer?

Jehovah's Witnesses have no beliefs.

If the GB decides to worship Barney the Dinosaur, the fools who bow to the GB's decisions will worship Barney.

AND, they don't need a scripture to follow.

Right now, as you ignorantly read this and try to understand the words, Jehovah's Witnesses ARE REQUIRED to believe in Paradise Earth.

"Paradise earth" is a key phrase in Watchtower literature, appearing over 1,000 times on the Watchtower CD Library. However, the term never appears in the Bible. Neither is resurrection onto earth specifically discussed.

No Scripture says mankind will be resurrected onto earth!

"So, then, why can we be so sure that you can live forever in paradise on earth? Why can we believe that everlasting life is not just a dream?" You Can Live Forever in Paradise on Earth p.7

A false doctrine which is not supported by scripture. The deluded followers don't have a choice, it is MANDATORY to believe whatever the Jehovah's Witness cult teaches.

In addition, Jehovah's Witnesses are required to believe it is impossible to obtain SALVATION unless you are a member of the evil and wicked cult, the Jehovah's Witnesses.

It is MANDATORY to believe that membership in the cult organization is a requirement for salvation.

"Organization" appears 16,789 times on the 2006 Watchtower Library CD, but never in the Bible.

"To receive everlasting life in the earthly Paradise we must identify that organization and serve God as part of it." Watchtower 1983 Feb 15 p.12

A false doctrine which is not supported by scripture.

It's evil and wicked.

There's only two requirements to be a member of the Jehovah's Witnesses...

1. You must be really gullible.

2. You must be really ignorant.

If God's spirit dwells in you, you will reject the wicked and evil cult of jehovah's witnesses who produce false prophecies, false doctrines, false scriptures, molested children, and use a fake, fabricated name for God.

Ephesians 5:11

Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness, but rather expose them.

Once the spurious addition of the fake, fabricated name jehovah is removed from the New Testament it is very clear that;

Jesus is the name borne witness to, not the fake, fabricated name jehovah!

Acts 9:15 "But the Lord said to him: "Be on your way, because this man is a chosen vessel to me to bear my name to the nations as well as to kings and the sons of Israel."

Acts 1:8 "YOU will be witnesses of me (Jesus) both in Jerusalem and in all Ju·de´a and Sa·mar´i·a and to the most distant part of the earth."

Jesus is the name used to expel demons, not the fake, fabricated name jehovah!

Mark 9:38-39 "John said to him: "Teacher, we saw a certain man expelling demons by the use of your name and we tried to prevent him, because he was not accompanying us." But Jesus said: "Do not try to prevent him, for there is no one that will do a powerful work on the basis of my name that will quickly be able to revile me;"

Jesus is the subject of the kingdom good news, not the fake, fabricated name jehovah!

Galatians 1:7 "But it is not another; only there are certain ones who are causing YOU trouble and wanting to pervert the good news about the Christ."

Jesus name invokes persecution, not the fake, fabricated name jehovah! Yet jehovah's witnesses falsely claim their persecution in the name of jehovah fulfills prophecy.

Matthew 24:9 "Then people will deliver YOU up to tribulation and will kill YOU, and YOU will be objects of hatred by all the nations on account of my name."

Jesus is the means of salvation, not the fake, fabricated name jehovah!

Acts 4:12 "Furthermore, there is no salvation in anyone else, for there is not another name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must get saved."

As their name implies, jehovah's witnesses predominant focus is on preaching about the fake, fabricated name jehovah while the message of the New Testament was to be witnesses of Jesus.

According to experts both names are just hypothesis that's why there are so many diffrent opinions that there is really no way to know for sure and I think if you have a relationship with god he knows who you are worshiping and praying to.

Whether or not JW's are willing to admit it, their door-to-door ministry is specifically designed to vet prime candidates for successful indoctrination.
The method works as follows:
(1) Isolate the individual.
Going door-to-door you are most likely to find people alone, or alone with children. In this way you do not have to worry that more than one person will be weighing and evaluating what you say. This also enables the application of emotional sway much more easily, someone need not be nearly as charismatic to sway one as to sway TWO or more minds to adopt a given perspective.
(2) Read a Scripture from a select set that have proven effective at weeding out knowledgeable householders.
For example: The Lord's prayer at Matthew 6:9-10.“When you look around the world and see all the bad that happens in it, do you really think God's will is being done on earth?” Asked this unexpected question, point blank, without having time for preparation and ideally with little or no Bible knowledge, most householders will, sadly, agree. Prime candidates will agree and add their OWN comments in favor of that view, seeking approval from this person who came to their door who is obviously so knowledgeable about the Bible.
Yet, it is a deception that the knowledgeable will easily spot. God's will IS being done on earth. God's will has ALWAYS been done on earth. Along with the will of others, God's will has been done by whomever has been willing to do it. Jesus, for instance, did the will of God on earth. He said so himself. If the knowledgeable one shows himself or herself to be such at this point perhaps there will be an offer of literature (in case someone ELSE in the household is not so knowledgeable), a brief explanation of the donation arrangement, and polite goodbyes will be made.
(3) Plant the kernel of "new" understanding about the Bible, the glimmer of hidden truth revealed.
“Did you know the Bible speaks of a time when God's will is going to be fully realized by making the entire earth a paradise, in which righteousness is to dwell? Notice what Revelation 21:3,4 says ...(or Psalm 37:10-11, 29, or Isaiah 65:17-25)... Doesn't that sound wonderful?” The ideal candidate will get wide-eyed and goose-pimply at the idea, a Bible study will start, and so long as they are willing to subject their entire prior life to the will of a Corporate authority in New York, USA, they will eventually become one of Jehovah's Witnesses.
The knowledgeable will not, they will spot the absence of the word 'paradise' anywhere in these texts and will ask about 2 Corinthians 12:1-4 and Revelation 2:7 ... whereupon they will be marked as argumentative, or as goats, or as too smug and full of themselves. They will be told,“I'll have to do some more research on that and get back to you ...” or “That's a very interesting question, but, unfortunately the rest of my car group is waiting for me, so ...”
The JW will not go back again.
It is a system DESIGNED to find the Scriptural illiterates and aliterates of society.
Which is why they cannot grow at all by any other means, and why their growth as a religion stagnates in locales where the populace is educated enough to spot the deceptions in their religious dogma.
Many have criticized Jehovah’s Witnesses for their global, effective house-to-house preaching work. Yet, there is a clear pattern set by the apostles and early Christians. In Acts 5:42, we read of their activity:“Every day in the temple and from house to house they continued without letup teaching and declaring the good news.”

Jehovah’s love toward mankind is that of a Father toward his children.

(Mt 5:45..........since he makes his sun rise upon wicked people and good and makes it rain upon righteous people and unrighteous.)

His greatest manifestation of love, the most loving thing that a parent can do, he did for mankind. That was the giving of the life of his own faithful, only-begotten Son.(Joh 3:16)

As the apostle John writes:“As for us, we love, because he first loved us.”(1Jo 4:19)

No works of ours can earn God’s blessing. It is, as Paul says, an undeserved kindness (grace).

Romans 3:23, 24, Paul thus told anointed Christians:“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and it is as a free gift that they are being declared righteous by his undeserved kindness through the release by the ransom paid by Christ Jesus.”

Those who have the hope of living forever on earth are likewise recipients of “a free gift.” This gift includes the privilege of being declared righteous as Jehovah’s friends.—James 2:23; Revelation 7:14.

If you are sincerely doing all you can within your limitations to fulfill your obligations to God, be happy at doing that. Jehovah asks no more of you.

Be aware, however, of another of Satan’s “evil tricks.” He misleads some into thinking that they can take advantage of God’s undeserved kindness, that they can presume on his mercy. Jehovah lovingly forgives our weaknesses, but that does not mean we can stop struggling to overcome them.

Paul described some who had “trampled upon the Son of God and . . . outraged the spirit of undeserved kindness with contempt.”(Hebrews 10:29)

These had shown no respect for righteous principles and contemptuously flouted God’s laws, putting themselves beyond restoration. Jesus’ half brother Jude, who saw the danger posed by such dupes of Satan, wrote:“Certain men have slipped in[to the congregations],. . . ungodly men, turning the undeserved kindness of our God into an excuse for loose conduct.”—Jude 4.

Satan may fool such ones into thinking they can more or less willfully indulge in wrongdoing and then ask God to forgive their sin. But Jehovah will not forgive such willful violators of his laws. He is “abundant in loving-kindness” to those who strive to serve him as best they can despite their imperfections.“But by no means will he give exemption from punishment” when it is due.—Exodus 34:6, 7.

The Bible shows that Jehovah enables his servants to understand his purpose in a progressive manner.(Prov. 4:18; John 16:12)

Thus, the prophets who were divinely inspired to write portions of the Bible did not understand the meaning of everything that they wrote.(Dan. 12:8, 9; 1 Pet. 1:10-12)

The apostles of Jesus Christ realized that there was much they did not understand in their time.(Acts 1:6, 7; 1 Cor. 13:9-12)

The Bible shows that there would be a great increase in knowledge of the truth during “the time of the end.”(Dan. 12:4) Increased knowledge often requires adjustments in one’s thinking. Jehovah’s Witnesses are willing humbly to make such adjustments.

Go back and read "Studies in the Scriptures" and all of their "adjusted understandings," false predictions and continue to deny, deny, deny and gobble down "new light" year after year. The UN is the great whore - oops - we're joining her and now we say nice things because we needed a library card.
"Studies in the Scriptures." The first volume was written in 1886 by Charles Taze Russell. In 1927, during Rutherford's presidency, the Watch Tower Society ceased publication of all seven volumes of Studies in the Scriptures, as several core doctrines had been changed from what Russell had taught.

As Jehovah’s Witnesses today review the work that Charles Taze Russell did, the things he taught, his reason for teaching them, and the outcome, they have no doubt that Charles Taze Russell was, indeed, used by God in a special way and at a significant time.

This view is not based solely on the firm stand that Brother Russell took with regard to the ransom. It also takes into account the fact that he fearlessly rejected creeds that contained some of the foundation beliefs of Christendom, because these clashed with the inspired Scriptures.

These beliefs included the doctrine of the Trinity (which had its roots in ancient Babylon and was not adopted by so-called Christians until long after Bible writing was completed) as well as the teaching that human souls are inherently immortal (which had been adopted by men who were overawed by the philosophy of Plato and which left them open to such ideas as the eternal torment of souls in hellfire).

Many of Christendom’s scholars, too, know that these doctrines are not taught in the Bible, but that is not generally what their preachers say from the pulpits.

In contrast, Brother Russell undertook an intensive campaign to share what the Bible actually does say with everyone who was willing to hear.

As his death neared, he did not take the view that there was nothing more to be learned, that there was no more work to be done.

He had often spoken of preparing a seventh volume of Studies in the Scriptures. When asked about it before he died, he said to Menta Sturgeon, his traveling companion:“Some one else can write that.” In his will he expressed the desire that The Watch Tower continue to be published under the direction of a committee of men fully devoted to the Lord. He stated that those who would thus serve were to be men “thoroughly loyal to the doctrines of the Scriptures—especially so to the doctrine of the Ransom—that there is no acceptance with God and no salvation to eternal life except through faith in Christ and obedience to His Word and its spirit.”
Brother Russell realized that there was much work yet to be done in preaching the good news.(Testing and Sifting From Within, chap 28 p. 623)

I would suggest that you get one of our new book's called "What Does the Bible Really Teach."
