Read below and say you believe they have the truth

When I feel that the Pastor where I am is not following Gods word, I will leave it as well. So you expected me to just sit there and not say a word? Sorry I am not afraid to say how I feel. The things happening in my present church are being considered at this moment, no decision has been made yet. I am free to make up my own mind of where or where I will not go to church. I will never find a perfect one, there is no such thing. Have a nice day.  (Wednesday Aug 10 | post #338)

What stops me from going back to the KH is the fact of how they view Jesus Christ. I had a discussion with two elders a few years ago, and was ask by them why I left, my response was...I didn't agree with their beliefs about Jesus, and I didn't agree with the feelings about the GB aka F&DS. The first one they ask me about was not Jesus, but about the GB aka F&DS. I have no hard feelings toward JWS, I love them and pray for them all the time, I just do not agree with many of their teachings. But I do agree with a few and still stick with them even though I am attending a church of a different faith. When ask what religion I am, I now tell people that I am a Christian, I think that says it all. We will not be judge by our religions name, but how we were in this life. We all have different ideas on things, and that's normal, but to hate on another because of it is so very hard. I am glad to see that you have kept your sense of caring for others instead of knocking each other down all the time. We are studying deeply into the scriptures as well, we use a book called the Gospel Project, it began with Genesis and goes all the way through Revelation. It is really very educational and I have learned a lot from this study. I will say that I learned a lot of the bible while a JW, and it has come in handy at times still yet. I got to go now, grocery buying day, I hate it, but its got to be done. :) Have a great beautiful day.. And as far as I know, I have not been DFed.  (Wednesday Aug 10 | post #337)

Hi Newtonian We had a discussion about homosexuality. He didn't feel it was necessary to have a sermon on how the world is accepting it, and I knew there were a few in our congregation that was showing the rainbow flag on their facebook page in acceptance of it.( I did not name names as I felt that was not my place) I told him that he needed to do this sermon to show them that we love the person but do not condone the lifestyle. He said that it was their choice to accept or not, and I told him that it reflected back onto our congregation if he allowed those who attend it to show such support of it. God does not approve, so we as Christians should not as well. He did do a "sort of" sermon on it a few weeks later. I do not know what has happened since because I left that church do to other things that were going on that I did not accept as appropriate for Gods church or people. I love Him and all of those in that church, but felt it best that I find a new place to worship. I have found a place that I feel comfortable in, but there are things that I do not agree with in it as well, but I guess there is not a perfect church out there so I will have to just pray that the Lord helps me stay on the right path. You are right, we are to love one another, and we will always have differences, but when the leader of the church doesn't stand for Gods laws and rules, its time to move on. I do hope you are feeling better.  (Tuesday Aug 9 | post #328)

to all JWs: Do you believe in the WTS's year of 1914?

That is not true at all, there are millions of people who are not JWs obeying his laws and principles.  (Saturday Jul 30 | post #197)

Trinity on the decline?

Ok one last post to you. Your last line is so funny its sad. You are being mislead by the GB aka F&DS and you will not open your eyes to see it, therefore you are misleading those you "preach" to. With all that junk about a religion, organization, and submission to men saving you, yours is the greatest lie of all time. JESUS is the only way to be saved, once you learn that, then you will be better off. Save your sarcasm for others, don't even bother responding because this is the final post to you that will be made by me. You are so lost and don't even realize it yet. I will pray that Jesus touches your heart and opens your eyes to the lies you are being taught, then maybe, just maybe you will see the real truth of Jesus Christ and the bible. Its up to you if you chose life or death, but at least you have been warned. Good bye  (Wednesday Jul 27 | post #49)

You are right, your not Aneirin, you are duh boy, he is the one who loves to call others ignorant and stupid, which you seem to love doing. I do not lie, but you do. Your stink is overwhelming and will one day cause you to lose your very life. I am now done with you. I had nothing to do with Duh boy due to his being disrespectful and well since you are DuhBoy, I am not doing this with you.  (Wednesday Jul 27 | post #46)

How Could God Essentially Turn an Angel Into God?

You expect people to quote what you say word by word. Sorry but that will never happen. I do not lie, you said what you said. You try to twist the words so you can do things like this, but that dont work either. I hate to tell you this, but just because you believe one way, and your religion teaches another does not make you right. If you do not believe that JWs believe they are saved because they are JWs, then you are not a true JW, it is what your GB aka F&DS teaches.  (Wednesday Jul 27 | post #565)

Hebrews 2:17-18 - “Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.” Hebrews 4:15-16 - “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” 1 Peter 2:24 - “who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we having died to sins, might live for righteousness - by whose stripes you were healed.” He went from sovereignty to shame and from deity to death? Why!? For you. John 15:13 - “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends.” Romans 5:8 - “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Taken from the same website  (Tuesday Jul 26 | post #33)

Amen.” Hebrews 2:17-18 - “Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made... 1:14 - And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, John 5:17,18 - “My Father has been working until now, and I have been working.” Therefore the Jews sought to kill Him, because He not only broke the Sabbath, but also said that God was His Father, making Himself equal with God.

No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:9-11 - Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, 'Show us the Father'?” John 20:28 - And Thomas answered and said to Him, “My Lord and my God!” Acts 4:12 - “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts 20:28 - (God purchased us with His own blood) Revelation 1:5-6; Revelation 5:8-9 - (Jesus' blood purchased us) Philippians 2:5-7 - Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bond-servant, and coming in the likeness of men. Colossians 2:9 - For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily 1 Timothy 3:16 - And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.

You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You with the oil of gladness more than Your companions.”  (Tuesday Jul 26 | post #31)
