What is wrong with the jebhoba witness cult.

1. 1 Timothy 2:5

The Watchtower cult REJECTS this (and really every other) scripture and accepts the (Satanic) Watchtower Cult in the place of Jesus as the mediator. Only the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses have direct access to the truth. Only they can ultimately interpret scripture correctly.

2. John 14:16-17 John 14:6 and 1 John 2:27

It a Watchtower cult member has the spirit with him and understands scripture correctly and follows that understanding and refuses to recant it he/she will be DISFELLOWSHIPPED! Following the the spirit Yahweh sent has been the grounds for Disfellowshipping (fancy word for excommunication) from the Jehovah witness cult. In other words, if you follow spirit of truth AND the scripture you WILL be disfellowshipped. No exceptions.

3. John 6:53

The JWs reject this truth outright. They OPENLY reject taking the blood and body of Jesus Christ in open defilement of Jesus' own wish.

4. The JW ADMIT in their OWN BIBLE and in the WATCHTOWER that 'Yahweh' is more correct than Jehovah, YET REFUSE to clean up their act and CONTINUE to insist that cult members use the term jehovah.(Note: Romans 10:2,3)

5. The WATCHTOWER DEMANDS 100% adherence to their doctrine. See Jude 22.
You WILL be excommunicated, shunned and disfellowshipped if you fail to comply.

Keep ready.—Luke 12:40.

To be in a state of readiness for Christ’s coming, families must be careful not to get sidetracked from matters pertaining to true worship. They need to be on guard against being turned aside by distractions. Consider what Jesus said about keeping our eye “simple.”(Matt. 6:22, 23) Just as a lamp can illuminate our path and allow us to walk without falling, what we take in through our figurative ‘eyes of the heart’ can enlighten us, helping us to conduct ourselves without stumbling.(Eph. 1:18) For a literal eye to see clearly, it must function properly and be able to focus on what it is looking at. It is no different with the eyes of the heart. Having a simple figurative eye means that we are single-minded in purpose. Rather than leading a life that is centered on material things and being consumed with taking care of only the physical needs of the family, we keep our eye focused on spiritual matters.—Matt. 6:33.(Examining the Scriptures Daily 2013)

Ya right YHWH does NOT = Yehwah

In the original Hebrew language of the Bible God’s name appears in Tetragrammaton form (&#1497;&#1492;&#1 493;&#1492;); the Tetragrammaton being defined as:“The Hebrew word written JHVH (or JHWH, YHVH, YHWH), representing, without vowels, the ‘ineffable name’ of God,. . . commonly transliterated in English as ‘Jehovah.’”—The American College Dictionary, page 1252.

YHWH, in fact, is pronounced Yah-weh.

There is no 'J' in Hebrew.

Which form of the divine name is correct—Jehovah or Yahweh?

No human today can be certain how it was originally pronounced in Hebrew. Why not? Biblical Hebrew was originally written with only consonants, no vowels.

When the language was in everyday use, readers easily provided the proper vowels. In time, however, the Jews came to have the superstitious idea that it was wrong to say God’s personal name out loud, so they used substitute expressions.

Centuries later, Jewish scholars developed a system of points by which to indicate which vowels to use when reading ancient Hebrew, but they put the vowels for the substitute expressions around the four consonants representing the divine name. Thus the original pronunciation of the divine name was lost.

Many scholars favor the spelling “Yahweh,” BUT IT IS UNCERTAIN and there is not agreement among them.

On the other hand,“Jehovah” is the form of the name that is most readily recognized, because it has been used in English for centuries and preserves, equally with other forms, the four consonants of the Hebrew Tetragrammaton.

J. B. Rotherham, in The Emphasised Bible, used the form Yahweh throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. However, later in his Studies in the Psalms he used the form “Jehovah.”

He explained:“JEHOVAH—The employment of this English form of the Memorial name . . . in the present version of the Psalter does not arise from any misgiving as to the more correct pronunciation, as being Yahwéh; but solely from practical evidence personally selected of the desirability of keeping in touch with the public ear and eye in a matter of this kind, in which the principal thing is the easy recognition of the Divine name intended.”—(London, 1911), p. 29.(RS p, 195, 196)

<quoted text> YAHWEH vs jerkoba

You are like a chess player that makes the same opening blunder in every game, never learning from your mistake.


" While inclining to view the pronunciation “Yah.weh” as the more correct way, we have retained the form “Jehovah” because of people's familiarity with it since the 14th century. Moreover, it preserves, equally with other forms, the four letters of the tetragrammaton JHVH (NWT, 1950 ed., Foreword, p. 25 [note: This admission was removed from the 1961, 1970, 1984 editions of the NWT]).







The WT acknowledges that most Hebrew scholars prefer “Yahweh” as the true pronunciation:



Yes, many Bible scholars acknowledge that “Yahweh” more nearly represents the Hebrew pronunciation of the Divine Name (WT,[3] July 15, 1964, p. 423).



Hebrew scholars generally favor “Yahweh” as the most likely pronunciation (Aid To Bible Understanding, 1971, 885).



“Jehovah” is the best known English pronunciation of the Divine name, although “Yahweh” is favored by most Hebrew scholars (Insight on the Scriptures, 1988, vol. 2, p. 5).

The WT acknowledges that the pronunciation “Jehovah” was originally a “blunder”:



As to the Old Testament name of God, certainly the spelling and pronunciation “Jehovah” were originally a blunder (The Bible in Living English, 1972, p.7).

The first recorded use of this form [Jehovah] dates from the thirteenth century C.E. Raymundus Martini, a Spanish [Roman Catholic] monk of the Dominican Order, used it in his book Pugeo Fidei of the year 1270 C.E.(Aid To Bible Understanding, 1971, p. 884-5).

The WT acknowledges that there is no NT Greek manuscript that contains “the divine name”:



One of the remarkable facts, not only about the extent manuscripts of the original Greek text, but

of many versions, ancient and modern, is the absence of the Divine name (NWT, 1950 ed., Foreword, p. 10; the same quote is found in the Awake magazine, 1957, January 8, 25).



no ancient Greek manuscript that we possess today of the books from Matthew to Revelation contains God’s name in full (The Divine Name That Will Endure Forever, 1984, p. 23).

Note: the manuscript evidence indicates that the NT was written in Greek, not Hebrew or Aramaic—thus, the Hebrew Tetragrammaton is not found in any NT manuscript. When citing passages from the OT, the NT authors used kurios (“Lord”) to translate YHWH. As well, the LXX used kurios to translate the Tetragrammaton.


*+*+*+*+*+
Since the JWs believe that the “true name” of God (“Jehovah” as they assume) is essential in honoring Him, then, why would they mispronounce and mistransliterate (as the WT admits) the Tetragrammaton—YHWH?

Romans 10:13 reads (Paul here quoting from Joel 2:32):“everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah will be saved”(NWT). Ask the JW:“If “Jehovah” is not the true and correct name (as agreed by the WT), how can a JW be saved since he or she calls on the wrong name?[6]

Contrary to the JW’s false and fixed notion regarding the term “Jehovah,” Jesus Christ instructed His followers



“After this manner therefore pray ye:‘Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name....’”(Matt. 6:9; KJV).



Remember, it is not merely the mispronunciation of YHWH that condemns JWs (for many Christians use the term “Jehovah”), but rather it is their denial that Jesus IS YHWH that condemns them before God (cf. John 8:24)."

This is out of date.'jeboboe'(whatever) is no longer in common use as the vast majority of the population knows the more correct (as admitted by the JW) form 'Yahweh'.

Telling us what term was in vogue OVER 100 years ago tells us nothing about what is used today.

The Watchtower cult REJECTS this (and really every other) scripture and accepts the (Satanic) Watchtower Cult in the place of Jesus as the mediator. Only the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses have direct access to the truth. Only they can ultimately interpret scripture correctly.
Really, what was the apostle Paul really saying in this verse. Paul was writing according to the facts of the first century of Christianity, during which the new covenant had been put into operation. Into it “men” of all nationalities, Jews, Samaritans, uncircumcised Gentiles, had already been brought after being made a part of spiritual Israel.

Christ Jesus was the mediator of that new covenant.

Paul’s letter to Timothy regarding this was a case of one ‘minister of the new covenant’ writing to another ‘minister of the new covenant.’ That new covenant between “our Savior, God,” and spiritual Israel continues as long as there are spiritual Israelites still in the flesh as “men” here on earth.

So the covenant is in force today. Jesus’“corresponding ransom for all” lays the basis for men and women of all sorts to become spiritual Israelites and be brought into the new covenant of which Christ Jesus is the “one mediator.”

The Law covenant arrangement with its animal sacrifices, as a pictorial legal basis, pointed toward a superior basis for approach to God.(Heb 9:8-10; 10:1)

This came by means of the new covenant through which all were to ‘know Jehovah, from the least one even to the greatest one.’(Jer 31:31-34; Heb 7:19; 8:10-13)

As the sole Mediator of that new covenant, Christ Jesus became “the way.” He said,“No one comes to the Father except through me.”(Joh 14:6, 13, 14)

The barrier separating the Jews from the uncircumcised Gentile nations outside God’s national covenant with Israel was removed by means of Christ’s death, so that “through him we, both peoples, have the approach to the Father by one spirit.”(Eph 2:11-19; Ac 10:35)

Faith in God as “the rewarder of those earnestly seeking him” and in the ransom is the prerequisite for peaceful approach and a kindly reception by God through Jesus Christ.(Heb 11:6; 1Pe 3:18)

Those approaching through Christ Jesus as their High Priest and Intercessor know that “he is always alive to plead for them”(Heb 7:25), and they can confidently “approach with freeness of speech to the throne of undeserved kindness.”(Heb 4:14-16; Eph 3:12) They do not approach in fear of condemnation.(Ro 8:33, 34) Yet they retain the godly fear and awe that such approach to God,“the Judge of all,” merits.—Heb 12:18-24,

In other words, if you follow spirit of truth AND the scripture you WILL be disfellowshipped. No exceptions.
God’s servants study the Bible and Christian publications. Jehovah’s standards are discussed at their meetings, assemblies, and conventions. So Christians are in a position to know what Jehovah requires of them.

Disfellowshipping takes place only if a member of the congregation unrepentantly engages in gross sin.

Consider a Scriptural example of disfellowshipping. The congregation in Corinth tolerated “such fornication as [was] not even among the nations, that a wife a certain man [had] of his father.” Paul urged the Corinthians to “hand such a man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, in order that the spirit may be saved.”(1 Corinthians 5:1-5)

When disfellowshipped and thus handed over to Satan, the sinner was again part of the Devil’s world.(1 John 5:19) His expulsion removed an evil fleshly element from the congregation and preserved its godly “spirit,” or dominant attitude.—2 Timothy 4:22; 1 Corinthians 5:11-13.

Before a very long time had passed, Paul urged the Christians in Corinth to reinstate the wrongdoer.

Why? It was so that they might not be “overreached by Satan,” said the apostle. The sinner had evidently repented and cleaned up his life.(2 Corinthians 2:8-11)

If the Corinthians refused to reinstate the repentant man, Satan would overreach them in that they would be as hard and unforgiving as the Devil wanted them to be. Very likely, they soon did “forgive and comfort” the penitent man.—2 Corinthians 2:5-7.

What is accomplished by disfellowshipping?

It keeps Jehovah’s holy name clear of reproach and protects the fine reputation of his people.(1 Peter 1:14-16)

Removing an unrepentant wrongdoer from the congregation upholds God’s standards and preserves the congregation’s spiritual cleanness. It may also bring the unrepentant one to his senses.

3. John 6:53

The JWs reject this truth outright. They OPENLY reject taking the blood and body of Jesus Christ in open defilement of Jesus' own wish.
Jesus was not talking about the world of mankind as the ones to drink his blood as well as eating his flesh, figuratively, during his millennial reign. He was talking about believers whom he would bring into the new covenant.(Jer. 31:31-34; Rev. 20:4-6)

These would become spiritual Israelites. That is why, when Jesus inaugurated the “Lord’s evening meal,” he said to his Israelite apostles:“This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood, which is to be poured out in your behalf.”(Luke 22:20; 1 Cor. 11:20, 25)

Or, according to Matthew 26:27:“Drink out of it, all of you; for this means my ‘blood of the covenant,’ which is to be poured out in behalf of many for forgiveness of sins.” The 11 faithful apostles who accepted the unleavened bread and the cup of wine at Jesus’ hands that Passover night of 33 C.E. were taken into the new covenant on the day of Pentecost, the fifty-second day from the Passover.

A remnant of spiritual Israelites, who are members of the spiritual “body” of Christ, are still on earth.

In recent years they have invited others to attend the annual Memorial celebration as witnesses or observers. These dedicated sheeplike persons were foreshadowed by Jonadab the friend of King Jehu of Israel.(2 Ki. 10:15-23; Jer. 35:1-16)

Ever since the year 1935 C.E. Jesus Christ the Fine Shepherd has brought a “great crowd” of such modern “Jonadabs” or “other sheep” into association with the spirit-begotten remnant of his spiritual “body.” But first in the Watchtower issue of February 15, 1938, we read this invitation:
“... After 6 p.m. on April 15 let each company of the anointed assemble and celebrate the Memorial, their companions the Jonadabs also being present. Let the emblems be unleavened bread and real red wine.”—Page 50, under “Memorial.”
Those “other sheep,” who are not of the same “fold” as the “little flock,” attended the Memorial as observers, not as partakers.—John 10:16; Luke 12:32.

Jesus did not specifically state how often it was to be done. He simply said:“Keep doing this in remembrance of me.”(Luke 22:19)

Paul said:“For as often as you eat this loaf and drink this cup, you keep proclaiming the death of the Lord, until he arrives.”(1 Cor. 11:26)

“As often” need not mean many times a year; it can mean annually over a period of many years.

If you commemorate an important event, such as a wedding anniversary, or if a nation commemorates an important event in its history, how often is it done?

Once a year on the anniversary date. This would also be consistent with the fact that the Lord’s Evening Meal was instituted on the date of the Jewish Passover, a yearly celebration that no longer had to be kept by Jews who had become Christians.

Jehovah’s Witnesses observe the Memorial after sundown on Nisan 14, according to the reckoning of the Jewish calendar that was common in the first century.

What issue of the BIBLE or WATCHTOWER admit that Yahweh is the most correct name of God?

Watchtower 2008 9/1 Why Use God’s Name if Its Pronunciation Is Uncertain?

Some scholars, though, recommend the pronunciation “Yahweh.”

Is that closer to the original pronunciation?

No one can be certain. Actually, other scholars have cited reasons for not using this pronunciation.

Of course, Bible names, when spoken in a modern-day language, probably sound nothing like the original Hebrew, and hardly anyone objects. This is because these names have become part of our language and they are easily recognized. So it is with the name Jehovah.

The first-century Christians were called a people for God’s name. They preached about the name to others and encouraged them to call upon it.(Acts 2:21; 15:14; Romans 10:13-15)

Clearly, it is important to God that we use his name in whatever language we speak, appreciate its significance, and live in harmony with what it stands for.

Early Christianity was not a sect. Nor was it meant to break up into separate sects. In praying to his Father, Christ asked that his disciples might “all be one.”(John 17:21) His disciples were to ‘have love among themselves.’(John 13:35) This excluded any divisive forming of sects.

Under divine inspiration Paul listed “divisions” and “sects” among “the works of the flesh.”

He wrote:“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, and they are fornication, uncleanness, loose conduct, idolatry, practice of spiritism, enmities, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, contentions, divisions, sects ... Those who practice such things will not inherit God’s kingdom.”—Galatians 5:19-21.

"Dogen" do YOU want these kind of people in YOUR congregation?

Since those who cause “divisions” and “sects”“will not inherit God’s kingdom,” they cannot be tolerated within the true Christian congregation.

Therefore, Paul wrote to Titus:“Shun foolish questionings and genealogies and strife and fights over the Law, for they are unprofitable and futile. As for a man that promotes a sect, reject him after a first and a second admonition; knowing that such a man has been turned out of the way and is sinning, he being self-condemned.”—Titus 3:9-11.

In his letter, Jude speaks of “some that have doubts.”(Jude 22) But neither Peter nor Jude says that a Christian can remain a ridiculer or a doubter.

Peter tells us to ‘be on our guard’ against “unsteady” ones who ‘twist the Scriptures.’(2 Peter 3:16, 17)

And Jude states that the doubters are in danger and need to be ‘snatched out of the fire.’(Jude 23)

Those who have been misled from the truth need to be helped “with mildness,” in the hope that “they may come back to their proper senses out from the snare of the Devil.”—2 Timothy 2:23-26. W83 9/15 “One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism’, p18

You’re right there was no J in the original Hebrew WRITINGS.

Matthew was a Jew, otherwise known as Levi, who became an apostle of Jesus Christ and the writer of the Gospel bearing his name.

The Bible translator Jerome of the fourth century and Origen of the third century C.E. say that Matthew wrote his Gospel in Hebrew. It was directed primarily to Jews.

So do we call Jesus in his Hebrew name [Yeshua or Yehohshua]?

There will also be false teachers among you.—2 Pet. 2:1.

How do false teachers operate? Their methods reveal a cunning spirit. Apostates “quietly bring in” corruptive ideas. Like smugglers, they operate in a clandestine manner, subtly introducing apostate views. And just as a clever forger tries to pass phony documents, so apostates use “counterfeit words,” or false arguments, trying to pass their fabricated views as if they were true. They spread “deceptive teachings,”“twisting ... the Scriptures” to fit their own ideas.(2 Pet. 2:1, 3, 13; 3:16) Clearly, apostates do not have our best interests at heart. Following them would only divert us from the road that leads to eternal life. How can we protect ourselves? The Bible’s counsel regarding how to deal with them is clear.(Rom. 16:17; 2 John 9-11)“Avoid them,” says God’s Word. Other translations render that phrase “turn away from them,”“keep away from them,” and “stay away from them!”(Examining the Scriptures Daily 2013)

Therefore, Paul wrote to Titus:“Shun foolish questionings and genealogies and strife and fights over the Law, for they are unprofitable and futile. As for a man that promotes a sect, reject him after a first and a second admonition; knowing that such a man has been turned out of the way and is sinning, he being self-condemned.”—Titus 3:9-11.
In his letter, Jude speaks of “some that have doubts.”(Jude 22) But neither Peter nor Jude says that a Christian can remain a ridiculer or a doubter.
Peter tells us to ‘be on our guard’ against “unsteady” ones who ‘twist the Scriptures.’(2 Peter 3:16, 17)
And Jude states that the doubters are in danger and need to be ‘snatched out of the fire.’(Jude 23)
Those who have been misled from the truth need to be helped “with mildness,” in the hope that “they may come back to their proper senses out from the snare of the Devil.”—2 Timothy 2:23-26. W83 9/15 “One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism’, p18
the name of God was left out because the Jews felt ashamed to pronounce his name and it was replaced with Lord, for there are many Gods but to me there is only one true God Jehovah

Really, what was the apostle Paul really saying in this verse. Paul was writing according to the facts of the first century of Christianity, during which the new covenant had been put into .....

Why did you write all of this? It does not address the the issue of 1 Timothy 2:5 and the JW violation of it.

Do you think cutting and pasting stuff that is not relevant to the issue is in any way impressive?

Do you assume people are so dumb they won't see through it?

Okay, I will give you the second one. The whole JW cult is predicated on people being so dumb they don't see through it!
