"jehovahs Witness Is Not A Cult"

I am a jehovahs witness, and I do not believe as to why you are making harsh comments about us, trinity yes, is a most asked question regarding our religion in which most religious leader conclude that we are a cult, because we do not believe in it, but as jesus once said that only his father knows the time and place where all the bad happenings ON EARTH will come to an end, and this statement totally redifines TRINITY :"THE FATHER, THE SON AND THE HOLY SPIRIT" meaning that all three of them will know what will happen in the near future.
So as most preachers say that jesus was the one true GOD, born as child unto earth through virgin Mary,
Well again I would say that most preachers would justify this by saying that when he was on earth, he was in human form meaning he had no divine powers,,,, and that does not make sense" the creator of heaven and earth" saying that he is the son of the TRUE GOD... and cannot do anything without his fathers blessing which means that the FATHER IS USING JESUS HIS SON TO DO MIRACLES so therefore THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT ARE NOT THE SAME......TRINITY, IF IT WAS TRUE THEN WE WERE BEING MOCKED ALL THIS TIME...............................dont you think!!!!!!! THINK ABOUT IT CLEARLY............

My exact thoughts.

JW's are considered a cult, because if you question ANYTHING that the slave class writes, you are considered a heretic and will be disfellowshipped.

Its a cult!! and very controlling.

I was a jehovahs witness for 5 years. All I saw was hypocrisy, prejudice, and abuse. No jehovah witness ever included the police when a wife is beaten by another believer in the house? You're nuts! I faced prejudice through your religion cult because of my mental illness. I wad shunned because of it. And you tell the world you're christian and love one another? Yeah.. in your head you do. But I see you do a lot of yelling in your story makes me think you got a bad temper and yet your religion cult says to love one and another with kindness? Hmmm. You got a lot of bad qualities in being a jehovah witness. Makes me glad I left the jehovahs witnesses organization. You guys haven't changed a bit!
Someone in the congregation years ago told me you have no God once you leave the Jehovahs witnesses. You know what? That isn't true. God is still with me today and you people had no right to judge whether god loved us in or outside your faith. You people don't think what you say and don't realize it.
I still have God in my life. I still get my prayers answered and received many blessings. So it doesn't really matter what others say. Its between you and God. Not by other jehovah witness faith as they believe.

<p>You don't have no idea what you saying. I believe in trinity, God, the father, the Son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost! If Jesus died on the stake, don't you think over 8.5 billion people on this earth will believe that!!! And the account of this...It is a CULT religion! I have a series of concerns about your beliefs. First of all, how many friends and family shunned you out???? Second, do you believe in Jesus Christ died on the cross??? and Third, Do you have co-workers asking you why you don't partake anything??? And finally, you don't have the right to judge, or shaming nobody's emotions as how they feel and experiences people going through in life. This is the website for people who survived in this demonizing cult! As for you, you can take your feelings and comments to your land of doomday and go to door to door on it!!!!</p>

They do believe Jesus was killed for our sins. They believe Jesus was God's first AND ONLY direct creation, and through Jesus, created everything else. Thus the term only begotten son. He took human form, and was sacrificed to reclaim the human race, after Adam lost it. They actually believe Jesus was the Arch Angel Michael in human form.

They do not believe he died on a cross, instead a torture stake. They believe God, the Holy spirit and Jesus are not the same being, but rather 3 separate things that act in unison. in total agreement with one another.

Their religion was created by Charles Taz Russel, a rather shady character that even sold stuff like "holy healing wheat" to followers. They completely, quietly disavow this character, and believe God used him to create his perfect religion on Earth. For a good 40 years their magazines and other publications were chock full of mathematical explanations to all their theorem based on pyramidology. Very similar to the Masons. Once Russel was gone, they changed much of their religion to what it is today.

Their main stress is Men's superiority over women. It's built into all their doctrine. You have a penis, you are most favored of God..period. A husband has dominion over his family..period. Often tempered with he should do this, and he should do that..but bottom line..he doesn't have to because he's the man. I believe this was the entire reason Russel created this off shoot religion. He wanted total dominance over females for himself and his fellow male members.

OK this was back in October, but did you count your time?

because, it\'s the story and I want to opinion. Nobody didn\'t tell you how far to go back on your time machine tactics. Yes, I Count my time smart *** every last ******* 11 years of it!!!!

You should be kinder and more sensitive to others feelings. Regardless of their reasons, they're real to them and your snarky comments only add fuel to their rage. What happened to "YOUR utterance [] always [being] with graciousness, seasoned with salt" or as "as apples of gold in silver carvings"? (Colossians 4:6; Proverbs 25:11)

I don\'t worship you!!! I worship my Lord. If You\'ve been beaten, tortured, went through aspect of everything on this earth....then I\'ll love you for your works!!! And you shouldn\'t worry about my feelings towards others, we are not babies here!!!

Lord Satan?

\"The children of God and the children of the Devil are evident by this fact: Everyone who does not carry on righteousness does not originate with God, neither does he who does not love his brother. Everyone who hates his brother is a manslayer, and YOU know that no manslayer has everlasting life remaining in him.\" -1 John 3:10,15

whatever! You worship your god! And I\'ll worship my God! Amen! And Please do not respond to me with this anymore!!!! I\'m not in the mood for stupid argumentive comments or gestures reply with authenticity, support, and respect.

Medice, cura te ipsum!

f@#$ you!

Yep, definitely a child of the Lord Satan ...

I'm sorry, but I was born into this, and baptized. I was disfellowshipped at 17 and really hold no ill will towards that....as I believe it saved my sanity and concept of quality of life. When a religion encourages you to not have children, because this world is only temporary, and you see so many members simply disregard this world as unimportant there is abit of a disconnect that i'll never subscribe to again. College educations, pensions etc...all discouraged and spoken of as "not needed"...and yet, that's the reality of life. How many times has Armageddon been predicted by JWs...right down to exact time periods? I understand man is fallible, thus as these dates come and pass you feel you gain better understanding... however, to live in constant fear that a fiery warfare is about to break out at any moment in our lives is just fear mongering and traumatizing. Especially to children, they are taught adult truths when their minds simply can not grasp those concepts yet. When you practice your approaches and techniques as to how to speak to people when you go to their door, that is simply nothing more than grooming with cult like behavior. I constantly watch the disconnect and random conscientious fight my mother has as to whether she should simply have a meal with me...her child. When you're encouraged to disregard your parental instincts regarding your own children because they choose to leave your religious organization or are outcast...there is something wrong with that. You know what I speak of... You can tell yourself all you want that something dictated to you thru another man is actual fact, but the side effects and mind sets being taught are actually quite negative. Especially when you label people who do not believe as you do as being "worldly"...and you also know that title is used derogatory.. .not a positive term that JWs view others as. JWs are no different than any other organized religion, they use brow beating and death at Armageddon as a fear mongering technique to keep their members within the parameters they dictate the bible says. And...I sincerely doubt you've read the King Jame's Version other than the sc<x>riptures you've been told correlate with the New World Translation. As you'll find, the majority of it does not match up. I suggest you do your research more extensively on that. <br />
Choose to live how you want... people who disagree with you are allowed to...your inability to accept and your judgement of different views is disappointing, as you're taught to love all. Yet that love, has so many stipulations I can see how the blinders of it hinder you. Good luck.

@ jerridreso – that is interesting. (seriously, I do like to find out more about different religions). What happens to the other people in all of world history who were not, are not, and will not be part of the 144000, when they die? In the Bible there are several different styles of writing (poetry, prophecy, historical records, etc)….and we know that the book of revelations which speaks about the 144000 is in fact a prophetic book which contains much symbolism including numerical symbolism. Is it therefore not possible that the number 144000 is symbolic?<br />
<br />
Regarding going to heaven and being saved, I would like to quote some sc<x>riptures directly from the Holy Bible:<br />
<br />
It is by faith you have been saved, through faith ---- and this not from yourselves --- it is a gift of God --- not by works, so that no one can boast. (Ephesian 2:8-9)<br />
<br />
If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9)<br />
<br />
Very truly, I tell you, whoever believes has eternal life. (John 6:47) <br />
<br />
I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies (John 11:25)<br />
<br />
"Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" They answered, "Believe on the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved." (Acts 16:30-31)<br />
<br />
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. (John 3:16) <br />
<br />
Very truly, I tell you, anyone who hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and does not come under judgment, but has passed from death to life. (John 5:24) <br />
<br />
And this one is very interesting. One of the criminals who hung on the cross next to Jesus and who had probably not carried out what we would call good works for God went to heaven! - 'Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.' 43 Jesus answered him, 'I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.'" (Luke 23:39-43)<br />
<br />
FINAL COMMENT: of course we are saved by grace alone (through faith that Jesus died for the forgiveneness of our sins and it is a free gift which we need to choose to accept), but once we are saved we carry out the good works of the Lord to further His Kingdom because we want to. Once we are saved/born again Jesus Christ transforms our nature and we become better people who actually want to do good deeds

JW preach another gospel than the true gospel of Jesus Christ. They teach that Jesus was not physically resurrected, amongst other things. JW's have to earn their way into heaven through works. All of this blatantly contradicts the Bible.<br />
<br />
The Bible is the Word of God, the ultimate truth against which we must test everything. The Bible is superior to the Watchtower, which is a man-made magazine.<br />
<br />
Please read the following site for intersting info: http://4witness.org/

regarding what wrought about JW's earning their way to heaven through work, I dont know if you have heard that we do our work with perseverence and dedication without asking anything in return, we believe that only144,000 people will only be able to enter heaven and rule with JESUS CHRIST, so what you meant was that all JW's have to work to earn their way to heaven,no I dont think so.... only the chosen ones will enter, so that does not deteriorates us from serving GOD....

Glad you pointed out the ressurection, If christ did not rise then we don't either.
Tells me that we are part of the food chain. 80 or so suumers and thats it.
So much for man being God's greatest creation.

Young man, beware. For what you do not understand ask. The Bible never contradicted itself. When we man fell in the beginning of time, we gradually forgot our honour and responsibility of worshipping God. Christ always prayed seeking the Father's guidance to teach us where we should be - on our knees every time. Christ is both God and man and the Father Son and Holy Spirit is always one. Ask Holy Spirit to teach you. He wil reveal the full truth to you if you are willing to listen...

have not seen a church yet that did not have there own bible<br />
<br />
sorry<br />
<br />
bible was writtne by man for man<br />
<br />
JW are one of the better church i have seen and been too you do not see them atthe bar asfter service and trying to pick up others

The Bible was written by several people chosen by God to do so, but it was always inspired by the Holy Spirit. That is why is it called the Word of God. The writings thereof began several hundred years before the birth of Jesus Christ. The Old Testament is a history of God's chosen people (the Jews) from which the Messiah Jesus Christ was pre-destined to come and therefore the Old Testament also displays the lineage of Jesus Christ throughout its books. The old Testament contains many prophecies about the coming Messiah (Jesus Christ) and most of these prophecies were fulfilled in the New Testament, which is a record of Jesus's life on earth. Future prophecies about the end times and the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ are still to be fulfilled.

It is important to stick to the most unaltered version of the Bible so that you know that there is not any misrepresentation in what you are reading. Unfortuntately this would be the laborious King James Version ;-) (which I personally find difficult to read, so I use the NIV - New International Version). Anything other than accurate translations of the Bible which is accepted by the traditional Protestant Christian Church can be considered false doctrine and not the true gospel of Jesus Christ. To look at it from another angle: do you think that if someone suddenly started changing parts of the Quran and gave the book a new name and started a new following based on this, that the Muslims would still accept it as the original message from Muhammed? They most definitely would not! So why should Christians not defend their true faith either?! The Watchtower is not the Bible, the Watchtower is a book founded by a man called Charles Taze Russell in the 1880's.

The true Holy Bible is God's loveletter to mankind because it shows us the way to salvation in a fallen world!

Don't look at all the mistakes that Christians and Churches make, for there are many!! They are only people and people are sinners and they make mistakes. Rather go and find out who the true Jesus Christ is, because He is the only way to God. Hope this helps!

In Greek and Hebrews translation says God breathed the Word to the prophits.
