ENOUGH!

We humans need to STOP FIGHTING OVER GOD.

START BEING LIKE GOD, NOW, instead.

Don't "wait on god" THE GOD IN YOU IS WAITING FOR YOU TO BRING IT OUT.

No more religious fights. No more myths and lies. No need to fight over who is god and which one is the right one - because we would already know where to "find god" - right within ourselves.

STOP FIGHTING OVER GOD AND START ACTING LIKE GOD. USE YOUR POWER to make the world a better place instead of "waiting for jesus".

STOP USING GOD AS A WEAPON TO BEAT EACH OTHER.

Would a "god" really want us to kill ourselves fighting over it?

No, right?

So why do we want kill ourselves over god? WTH is wrong with us?

As Jehovah’s Witnesses look back over their modern-day history, they see evidence that Jehovah has truly been refining his people.(Mal. 3:1-3)

Wrong attitudes, beliefs, and practices have gradually been cleared out, and any who have chosen to cling to these have gone with them.

Those who remain are not people who are willing to compromise Bible truth in order to accommodate human philosophy. They are not followers of men but are devoted servants of Jehovah God. They gladly respond to the direction of the organization because they see unmistakable evidence that it belongs to Jehovah. They rejoice in the advancing light of truth.(Prov. 4:18)

Jehovah’s Witnesses today recognize the Watchtower magazine and kindred publications to be the ones used by the faithful and discreet slave to dispense spiritual food. They do not claim that this slave class is infallible, but they do view it as the one channel that the Lord is using during the last days of this system of things.

They individually count it a grand privilege to be active Witnesses of Jehovah, proclaimers of the Kingdom of God.

I see that humans actually DO have to come close to this thing you call "armegeddon" before we realize that we're creating this all ourselves.

FIGHTING OVER GOD = ARMEGEDDON.

You all are a bunch of MURDEROUS THUGS for engaging in this STUPID fight over BULLSH!T.

YOU ALL ARE DIRTY LIARS AND YOUR LIES WILL MEAN THE END OF THE HOMOSAPIEN SPECIES.

And what web site or book did you read this from?

Brainwashing, look at you’re pagan doctrines that had filtered into Christianity during the centuries-long apostasy.

Throughout the centuries, the apostasy had spread throughout the earth. The many church denominations had some Bible teachings but mainly followed human traditions and many customs of heathen origin. Expectations as to the return of Christ were generally pushed into the background.—Compare Matthew 13:24-30, 37-43.

Jesus had said to keep on the watch for his return! One group doing this was located in Allegheny (Pittsburgh), Pennsylvania, U.S.A.

In the early 1870’s Charles Taze Russell and some of his friends began to make a thorough, nondenominational study of the Bible with regard to Christ’s return. They also began to seek Bible truth on many other basic teachings. This was the beginning of the modern-day activities of Jehovah’s Witnesses.—Matthew 24:42.

This group came to understand that the doctrine of the Trinity is not Biblical but Jehovah alone is the almighty God and Creator; Jesus Christ is His first creation and only-begotten Son; and the holy spirit is not a person but is God’s invisible active force.

This group saw that the soul is not immortal but mortal, that the hope for the dead is resurrection, and that the punishment for unrepentant wickedness is not eternal torment but annihilation.

Jesus’ giving his life as a ransom for mankind was seen to be a basic Bible teaching. First, 144,000 men and women, chosen from the first century down to our time, will be redeemed from the earth to be joint heirs with Christ in the heavenly Kingdom.

Then through Jesus’ ransom billions of mankind, the majority of whom will be resurrected from the dead, will attain human perfection with the prospect of everlasting life on earth under that Kingdom rule.

Russell and his associates also saw that Christ’s presence was to be invisible, in spirit. The Gentile Times, during which period God’s sovereignty was not being expressed through any government on the earth, were to end in 1914.

Then God’s Kingdom would be established in heaven. These teachings are identified with Jehovah’s Witnesses today.

Be True was posting about Charles T. Russell!
Russell pass away before Orin Moyle was even known about.
This is what I have read about Orin Moyle..........
SEPTEMBER 15, 1941 WT
Page 285
This same day a sharp judgment of the great Lawgiver against
the "evil servant" class (Matt. 24:48-51) was expressed at the
beginning of the afternoon’s sessions. An ex-army officer of the
United States appeared on the platform and asked and was granted
the privilege to present a Resolution concerning one Moyle.
Said lawyer proved unfaithful to his position of trust m the
Lord’s organization, slandered and abused the Bethel family at
Page 286
Brooklyn, quit his post of duty, and thereafter sued the Society
and its board of directors and others for $100,000 for libel because the facts were published in The Watchtower for the protection of Jehovah’s witnesses throughout the land. The Resolution condemned such course of action and such recourse to worldly courts as unscriptural, unwarranted and unjustified. Put to a vote, the Resolution was adopted with a unanimous "Aye" by the
vast assembly of more than 75,000. Thereafter copies of the
Resolution were given free to all, to take home with them.
Student , if you were smart, you would be getting out NOW of the JW.
It is a cult.A brainwashing,. Can't you SEE this?
Jesus Christ is the only way to our Heavenly Father.
'For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, and whosoever BELIEVETH in Him, will have everlasting Life'
You MUST go thru Jesus Christ. Jesus is our Saviour, Jesus died for our SINS. We can not get to God , but thru Jesus Christ.

Apparently, you do not know to much about our faith!

Christ did not come into the world just to be a Messiah for the Jews. He came for the benefit of all mankind, as he himself explained:“God loved the world [of mankind since Abel] so much that he gave his only-begotten Son [Christ, the Word], in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.”(John 3:16)

Now, how should this oft-quoted text affect us? If God sent his Son to the earth to act as a light in the world’s spiritual darkness, should we not at least reflect that light to others?

God’s unselfish course of action should touch a responsive chord in our heart. Who of us would be willing to sacrifice in ignominious death the person dearest to our heart and in behalf of mainly indifferent people?

So what should God’s love move us to do? To exercise active faith in Jesus Christ and in the life-redeeming value of his sacrifice.

The result will be life, for Jesus said:“I am the light of the world. He that follows me will by no means walk in darkness, but will possess the light of life.”(John 8:12)

Our Sovereign Lord Jehovah lives forever, his resurrected Son, Jesus Christ,“because of continuing alive forever,” adds substance to that hope, for “he is able also to save completely those who are approaching God through him, because he is always alive to plead for them.”(Heb. 7:24, 25)

Thus, the apostle Peter wrote to anointed Christians:“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, for according to his great mercy he gave us a new birth to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an incorruptible and undefiled and unfading inheritance. It is reserved in the heavens for you, who are being safeguarded by God’s power through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last period of time. In this fact you are greatly rejoicing.”(1 Pet. 1:3-6)

Yes, I know quite a bit about your JW religion. You think Jesus Christ was ' Michael the Archangle', just a good Prophet.

You slowly push Jesus Christ OUT.

Jesus is the WORD.

'In the beginning was the Word , and the WORD was with GOD and the WORD --WAS God.'

Was THE God --- NOT "a" God, meaning one of many Gods----but THE GOD. Those articles THE and A, changes the meaning severly- and you ADDED that in your NWT Bible. Several places you do this .
