<quoted text>no I think you condemned yourself. I speak only for myself - obviously - if thought any other religion that claimed to worship Christ did so in the way He approves, I would feel free to join that.

Ok, then you just verified that you are not a jw and you do not want to have anything to do with unity. You separate yourself from the rest of the world that is united in love and charity. You do not believe in any of that, It's your race or the highway, you align yourself with Hitler, you and your kind need to be stopped. Its time to put your ass into a gas chamber..Hitler sympathizer.

. DB think for a moment... Is there anyone at this point...that is perfect?? were we not to be followers of Christ.?? you are aware of his command to show LOVE for our fellow man.?? granted we aren't always going to agree with everyone we meet.. And yet.. I expect .. that there are things we would learn from one another.. Even if was the fruitages of the Spirit.. The thing Paul stressed is that we were to be united in the fact that we were to be followers of Christ.. Nothing more.. Not causing divisions often means that we need to hold our own council .( LEARN TO KEEP OUR MOUTHS SHUT) why..do I say that?? Because like the Pharisee and the Publican.. we aren't able to read hearts.. And what we may think is right and truth today.. we may.. of our own accord.. find that some how it isn't ..
Going around snidely speaking of others as if they lie is not what Christ wanted.. First off there is Forgiveness.. and the fact that some people eat meat and others veggies.. NOW ..when you apply that to FAITH and spiritual food.. You will see plainly that ..NOPE! we don't all believe exactly the same.. Yet.. we are still to thank GOD for what we have..AND yes.. He is the same GOD.. the creator.. That.. one ..sees him alone.. Ant the other sees the bigger picture.. has not only caused divisions but has wasted a lot of time that could be used for discussing more important things.. Sadly people have yet to learn humility and to live and let live.
1) Er doesnt thesalonians instruct us to admonish wrong do-ers? Beside if you really cared about you brother/sister in christ would you really want them to put themselfs in grave and mortal danger. When the bible condems judgementalism i belive in is written in the context of belittling another rather than correction.
2) From the way you are talking i cant help thinking you are a member of one of the MANY protestant DIVISIONS and isnt it protestants especially evangelicals that go around snidely attcking the one true church all the time

The ones that I am aware of that snidely attack other churches is the WTBTS... Yes.we were told to give a warning to those that we see are in danger.. OR ..we will be held accountable.. Hmm!( brings to mind the none warning that the Elders .. have not given to the CONG... as to a pedophiles and rapist who may be sitting next to you in the Church).. Belittling is name calling and thinking that you are better then everyone .. Be careful that tends to fall under..[ YOU will reap what you sow.]. I don't go to church... AND there are no churches..that aren't a division of some kind or another.. They all extrude something..that draws peoples attention.. If not... they would not last long..

If you mean jehovah witness they arnt christians even in the loose sense of the word as they reject the trinity and therefore logicaly (by their logic anyway) are in rejection of christ resurection, after all their would have been no one to resurect him if their was no father. Actually jehovahs witness are a bit like jews in that they are both very corrupting and troublesome people. This is why the nazis in europe had to include them on their purges.

.I think it's an arrogance born by their taking GOD..for granted.. The Jew's did.. and Jesus set them straight... The bible tells us it was written to.. TEACH..reprove and set things straight.. AND yet.. like the Pharisee on the Pharisee and the Publican....they are the ones that Jesus used as how NOT to be.. Why.. for the very reason that they pointed out their perceived wrongs of others... thinking that they were so much better.
