      Hello friend, I personally believe it is.

      Where we can check biblical claims against verifiable truth, the Bible proves itself accurate. History, archaeology, science, and philosophy have shown Scripture to be factual and consistent!
      This correspondence between various forms of evidence is a major advantage the Bible has over the scriptures of any other faith system.
      In many cases, it has been the deciding factor in converting skeptics and nonbelievers to faith in Jehovah.

      Weird thing to get hung up on if you've actually read into their beliefs much at all. They believe that 144k people go to heaven to become glorified middle manager bureaucrats in Heaven. Everyone else gets to live eternally on a paradise Earth.

      Just seems to go against what I got out of the bible.
      though I do have respect for most of their beliefs.

      Hello friend,

      God created the earth to be mankind’s eternal home. (Psalm 104:5; 115:16; Ecclesiastes 1:4) God will bless obedient people with perfect health and everlasting life in an earthly paradise.—Psalm 37:11, 34.

        Hello

        Jehovah’s Witnesses practice a religion that benefits themselves and others in the community.

        For example, our ministry has helped many people to overcome harmful addictions, such as the abuse of drugs and alcohol.
        In addition, we conduct literacy classes around the world, helping thousands learn to read and write. And we are actively involved in disaster relief.

        We work hard to have a positive impact on others, just as Jesus commanded his followers to do.—Matthew 5:13-16.

        Please tell me the JW leadership has unironically decided to start having random boomers spend their time proselytize on /misc/, I want to live in this timeline. No memeing I think that's great.

          Jesus was not created, He was begotten. He always existed, even before He was the Son. Like a Sun Ray exists before it begins to travel, at lightspeed, towards the Earth. The Sun Ray existed in the Sun.

          Hello friend,

          We believe God created Jesus before he created anything else. Regarding Jesus, the Bible says:

          “He is the firstborn of all creation.”—Colossians 1:15.

          He is “the beginning of the creation by God.”—Revelation 3:14.

            Whatever has been begotten has, at one point, not been begotten, hence it follows that there was a time when the Son was not.

            Jesus was thus made by God.

            I just explained the concept using the illustration of the Sun and a Ray. Rays travel at the speed of light. They have a point where they begin to move. But where did they exist before they began to move? In the Sun itself. This is the same illustration Tertullian used, and you Heretics try to use him to prove Jesus was "created".

            Actually friend, the expression “Son of God” acknowledges that God is the Creator, or Source, of all life, including that of Jesus. (Psalm 36:9; Revelation 4:11)

            Speaking of Tertillian, he himself says that teh Father is before all things. In Against Hermogenes he wrote:

            “We should not suppose that there is any other being than God alone who is unbegotten and uncreated. . . . How can it be that anything, except the Father, should be older, and on this account indeed nobler, than the Son of God, the only-begotten and first-begotten Word? . . . That [God] which did not require a Maker to give it existence, will be much more elevated in rank than that [the Son] which had an author to bring it into being.”

            You're simply a Heretic. Tertullian never said Jesus Christ was created. He was begotten. Before He was begotten, He was inside the Godhead, like a Ray was inside the Sun before the Sun begat the Ray.

            They deny Christ's divinity and are therefore homosexuals.

            Hello, we do believe in the divinity of Jesus.

            However, we believe that the Father is greater than the Son:

            “My Father is greater than I [Jesus].”—John 14:28.

            “I [Jesus] ascend unto my Father, and your Father, and to my God, and your God.”—John 20:17.

            “To us there is but one God, the Father.”—1 Corinthians 8:6.

            “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”—1 Peter 1:3.

            You quoted from the KJV which is not the best translation. Consider these instead:

            English Standard Version
            who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,

            Berean Standard Bible
            Who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,

            Berean Literal Bible
            Who, existing in the form of God, did not consider to be equal with God something to be grasped,

            Jesus never envied God's position, he didn't attempt to grasp or seize equality with God, contrary to Satan.

            This verse shows Jesus' humility and subordination to his God and Father.

            KJV is the only translation worthwhile, the rest are almost universally moronic (The Geneva Bible and Bishops Bible are exceptions, but the KJV and both of those agree on everything, the KJV is easier to read and more accessible). They transform salvation into a process. Anything that isn't a direct translation of the Textus Receptus is a perversion of the word of God.

            Incorrect. There are a few issues in the Bishop's and Geneva translations. E.g. the Geneva messes up some measurements, adds The Prayer of Manasseh into the OT (marked as non-canonical, but still a poor choice), translates metanoia "amend your lives", and removes verses from Scripture (e.g. Luke 17:36).

            Understanding of Greek from Greek scholars.

            >Exactly, you are polytheists. You have just shown that you are polytheists. You believe in two divine beings.

            Actually, the Bible uses the word 'God' to refer to different characters but at varying degrees and with various meanings.

            The word 'god' can be used for peophets (Exodus 7:1), judges of Israel (Psalm 82:6), angels (Psalm 8:5), Kings (Psalm 45:6) and even Satan! (2 Corinthians 4:4)

            The word 'god' (El in Hebrew/Theos in Greek) actually just means "powerful one" or "strong one".

            Moses was called a god because he received from Jehovah the power to do miracles before Pharaoh.
            Judges in Israel had authority on the people, so they could be called gods.
            Jesus is indeed a powerful one compared to humans, so he is properly called a god.

            But only Jehovah is ALMIGHTY GOD, and we must worship himonly because only he is divine in the SUPREME SENSE!

            Actually, Biblical monotheism is
            monolatrism, the consistent worship of only one divine person in the divine/supernatural realm inhabited by divine/supernatural persons.

            The one divine person who receives full devotion and worship is the ALMIGHTY CREATOR!

            Additionally, any obeisance (proskuneo) given to Jesus is to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:11)
            For example, Joseph’s brothers also bowed to him in Genesis 43:28 (proskuneo LXX), but he was not a false god, because his brothers knew that full worshipful devotion belonged to the Almighty God Jehovah.

            Okay, let me ask you a question: do you believe that God Almighty has a God above himself, that is superior to him?

            Your rebuttals doesn't work: Jesus permitted what angels would not, so he was not just a created being like an angel. Jesus sent the Holy Spirit, he forgave sins - not saying "The Lord forgives you", and so on.

            Either Jesus was God, or he was a blasphemer.

            Actually, Jesus is worthy of special honor more than angels while not being God himself because he is the one who received the kingdom from God and will wrest the world away from Satan and rule as "Lord of Lords and King of Kings" until the day he hands over all authority and power to his Father. (1 Corinthians 15:20-28; Revelation 17:14)

            Thus, as king of God’s kingdom, he deserves the honor due his positoin, just as with any other king. He is "the Son of the kingdom."

            That still doesn't work. You are still left with the same choices. Using the Septuagint, the exact same word for "bowing down" to Jesus is forbidden in Exodus 34:14: προσκυνήσητε. You must not bow down to another god (in worship).

            So which is it? Is Jesus a blasphemer? Is Jehovah a liar? Or is your church wrong?

            Compare for example 1 Chronicles 29:20
            "And David said to all the congregation, Now bless the LORD your God. And all the congregation blessed the LORD God of their fathers, and bowed down their heads, and worshipped the LORD, and the king." (King James Bible)

            Clearly, the word proskuneo is not specific to the adoration of a god. It also refers to the respect and honor shown to a person in authority. In order to avoid any misunderstanding, some Bible translations render the word proskuneo as:
            • “pay homage” (New Jerusalem Bible)
            • “honour” (The Complete Bible in Modern English)
            • “bow down before” (Twentieth Century New Testament)
            • “do obeisance to” (New World Translation).

            Hello friend,

            When you examine most religions you find that they cannot meet any of the other requirements of true Christianity. Their historical record is of bloodthirsty wars, immorality, sectarian violence and factional splits (Matthew 7:21- 23; 2 Timothy 3:5; Galatians 5:19-23). Today Catholics continue to kill Catholics and Protestants kill Protestants, something true Christians would not do (1 John 3:10,15; 4:8).
            Our hearts tell us that any religion who is willing to shoot their own members in warfare cannot possibly be trusted to teach Biblical truth.

            I have found only one group which has presented absolute evidence of truly being Christian: Jehovah's Witnesses!
            This is the testimony of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:9-11; Galatians 5:19-22).

            Shalom, rabbi. Are you preparing for Shabbat? Have you been enjoying your Sukkot?

            Thank you for your question!

            Please watch:

            Actually, Biblical monotheism is
            monolatrism, the consistent worship of only one divine person in the divine/supernatural realm inhabited by divine/supernatural persons.

            The one divine person who receives full devotion and worship is the ALMIGHTY CREATOR!

            Additionally, any obeisance (proskuneo) given to Jesus is to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:11)
            For example, Joseph’s brothers also bowed to him in Genesis 43:28 (proskuneo LXX), but he was not a false god, because his brothers knew that full worshipful devotion belonged to the Almighty God Jehovah.

            >Actually, Biblical monotheism is monolatrism
            No, Isaiah 45:5
            >I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me,

          • 7 months ago

            I agree with Isaiah 45:5, there is no God apart from Jehovah in the sense that only he is Almighty, Eternal and Omniscient.

            As stated before, the Bible uses the word 'God' to refer to different characters but at varying degrees and with various meanings.

            But only Jehovah is ALMIGHTY GOD, and we must worship himonly because only he is divine in the SUPREME SENSE!

            KJV is the only translation worthwhile, the rest are almost universally moronic (The Geneva Bible and Bishops Bible are exceptions, but the KJV and both of those agree on everything, the KJV is easier to read and more accessible). They transform salvation into a process. Anything that isn't a direct translation of the Textus Receptus is a perversion of the word of God.

            >KJV is the only translation worthwhile

            I use the The New World Translation because it is based on up-to-date scholarly research and the most reliable ancient manuscripts.

            In contrast, the King James Version of 1611 was based on manuscripts that were often less accurate and not as old as those used in producing the New World Translation.

            Actually, as Jesus said in the clearest possible terms imaginable at John 17:1-5, the Father is God, and He is the only one to receive full worshipful devotion.

          • 7 months ago
            Anonymous

            The Father is God, but so is the Son. You know Jesus forgave sins, something only God can do.
            Jesus accepted worship. Matthew 14:33, Matthew 28:9, Luke 24:52, John 9:38

            Jesus was not an angel, because angels cannot be worshipped: Revelation 19:9-10.

            Again, your choice does not work.

          • 7 months ago
            Friendly neighborhood JW

            Please allow me to respond to your points:

            • It was the Father and God of Jesus who gave him the ability or authority to forgive sins. Matthew 9:8 reveals that Jesus, as a man among men, received this authority to forgive sin from his God and Father.

            • Where people bowed down to Jesus, the specific word "pro·sku·ne′o" was used. It is most often translated as "worship".
            Unger’s Bible Dictionary says that it means to ‘kiss the hand of someone in token of reverence or to do homage.’ Thus, the meaning is clear: offering one’s self in subjection. In line with this, the Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words, by W. E. Vine, says that this word “denotes an act of reverence, whether paid to man or to God.”
            It clearly does not mean "worship" in the American sense of exclusive devotion to a deity.

            • Why did the angels reject being bowed down to? Because those bowing were doing so to honor the angel who has no kingship or special authority within God’s kingdom. (Revelation 19:10, 22:9) If the angels had accepted the obeisance, they would have been usurping authority they did not have, and perhaps because those individuals were trying to honor them as gods.

            • And lastly: It is extremely important to realize that God did not send some angel to rescue mankind. He made the supreme sacrifice of sending his only-begotten Son, “the one he was specially fond of.”—Proverbs 8:30; John 3:16.
            This is true because only Jehovah’s firstborn Son could measure up to the special needs of the situation involving sinful mankind. He is such an image of his heavenly Father in showing affection for members of the divinely produced family that he is without equal among the sons of God. Since all other intelligent creatures were brought into existence by means of him, his affection for them would certainly be abundant.

            Showing obeisance is usually referred to expressing respect. Respect and worship are 2 different things.

            Frick off you hellbound heretic. You twist the bible, you make inaccurate, blatantly false translations, then check against that. You deny Jesus His Godhood, and you reject Divine sacrifice.

            Hello

            True Christians would be associated with God's name: (John 17:3,6,26; Acts 15:14/Isaiah 55:5; 1 Peter 2:9/Exodus 19:4- 5; Psalm 83:18).

            They would not use Bibles which have removed the Most Holy Divine Name of God. Replacing the Divine Name with the common noun "Lord" cannot be justified by any translational principles so it is a blatant "subtraction" from God's word which brings a curse on anyone who approves it (Revelation 22:18).

            The true Church would be engaged in an unprecedented teaching activity (Matthew 24:14, 28:19, 20). JWs right now are performing the greatest Bible education work ever done in all human history!

            There are more scripture evidences, however these are plenty to show which religion meets the requirements of being the True religion.

            If JWs or any other groups are really as extremely dangerous as one could think after reading some of the answers in this thread, let the authorities act.
            But in any case, with the exception of countries such as North Korea, Russia or Saudi Arabia, most countries consider Jehovah’s Witnesses a legal religion, with the same rights as any other religion, for what it’s worth.

            Acts 11:26 says that the name “Christians” was used for Christs disciples, that is, those who followed his teachings.
            I’m convinced that Jehovah’s Witnesses follow Christ's teachings, and so they are the true Christian religion. And that’s why I’m one of them

      Hello

      JW's have never hidden the fact that they had incorrect beliefs due to ignorance. We regularly study our history.

      But, the Bible shows that God allows his servants to gradually understand (Proverbs 4:18; John 16:12) just as the prophets and Apostles had to gradually learn and change their understandings (Daniel 12:8, 9; 1 Peter 1:10-12; Acts 1:6, 7; 1 Corinthians 13:9-12).

      So, concern with past beliefs which were incorrect is a waste of time and distracts from the real issue. That is, a FAILURE to correct false doctrine or actions when presented with solid evidence would be proof that a religion or an individual is not God's organization or a Christian.

    The view that higher education is spiritually dangerous is very common among Witnesses,
    Jehovah's Witnesses prefer uneducated sheep, which are easier to manipulate. 75% of JW have a high school diploma or less.

      Hello

      I'm afraid there is confusion on your part.

      Jehovah’s Witnesses do not prohibit college education. I we't to college.

      What Jehovah’s Witnesses have done over the decades is issue balanced warnings against pursuing a college education for the wrong reasons, while urging members to think about why they are pursuing a college education using questions like: “what are my goals in life?”, or “am I looking to support my service to God, or get ahead in this world?”.
      These are very logical questions for any Christian to ask themselves.

      They are a heretical religion by christians point of view as in they do not even follow the bible.
      They're more of a cult in the same bucket with Seven day adventist, mormons, and the word of faith guys.
      Of course no religion is true it's all man made and constructed in such a way that's convenient for the people it's aimed at.

      Hello, that is far from the truth!

      Jehovah's Witnesses believe the Bible was inspired by God and is historically accurate.

      They see the Bible as the main way in which God communicates his will to human beings, and they interpret it literally (except for passages that are obviously meant to be symbolic or poetic).

      Witnesses test any religious idea or teaching against the Bible - if an idea or teaching doesn't agree with the Bible then they regard it as wrong

          This is actually not accurate at all.

          The policy of Jehovah's Witnesses clearly states:
          "In addition to making a report to the branch office, the elders may be required by law to report even uncorroborated or unsubstantiated allegations to the authorities. If so, we expect the elders to comply. Additionally, the victim may wish to report the matter to the authorities, and it is his or her absolute right to do so."

          I am not accusing him, he admitted it. Look it up.

            Actually, although we do not take part in politics, we respect the authority of the governments under which we live. This is in harmony with the Bible’s command: “Let every person be in subjection to the superior authorities.” (Romans 13:1)

            You shouldn't be so naive and believe everything you read on the internet.

            Jehovah gives this advice:
            "The simple man believes every word, but the prudent give thought to their steps." (Proverbs 14:15)

            You are not allowed to be friends with people who are not of the religion.
            If you get baptized into the religion then decide it is not for you all members including family members are forbidden to speak or interact with you.

            Hello

            >You are not allowed to be friends with people who are not of the religion

            Actually we can. There is no prohibition for that. We do not “shun” or avoid anyone just because they do not agree with our teaching.

            But do we have non JWs friends even though it is not prohibited?

            “Friend” is a rather open term that covers a lot of different degrees of attachment. So, since the question is simply about “friends” my answer is yes. I do have non-JWs friends.

            But “close friends” or “best friends” would be something else. It is a very deep and close bond. In that case I’d had answered that generally no, we don’t have “close friends” that aren't Jehovah's Witnesses.

            For most Jehovah’s Witnesses by far, our worship and our relationship with God is the most important part of our lives, the very centre. So, it would be really difficult to naturally and spontaneously develope that close attachment to a person who doesn’t share that basic part of our life and heart. And for the other person it might be difficult as well.

    Religious scholars have routinely found the testimony and public statements of apostates to be unreliable.

    In his book "The Politics of Religious Apostasy: The Role of Apostates in the Transformation of Religious Movement", Professor David Bromley, Department of Sociology and Anthropology of Virginia Commonwealth University, explained how individuals who elect to leave a chosen faith then become critical of their religion in order to justify their departure. This then opens the door to being recruited and used by organizations which seek to use their testimony as a weapon against a minority religion:
    "Others may ask, if the group is as transparently evil as he now contends, why did he espouse its cause in the first place? In the process of trying to explain his own seduction and to confirm the worst fears about the group, the apostate is likely to paint a caricature of the group that is shaped more by his current role as apostate than by his actual experience in the group."

        Actually, it would be impossible for JWs to brainwash because becoming baptized as a Jehovah's Witnesses is not a trivial step.

        At a minimum, a student must demonstrate months of regular meeting attendance and public ministry, then must himself express the desire to be baptized.
        The candidate then spends hours answering hundreds of bible questions wherein he expresses both a clear understanding and personal conviction regarding Christian teachings in at least three separate interviews with three different elders.
        Then, the candidate will vocally agree to be baptized in front of hundreds or thousands of eyewitnesses, and will be publicly immersed in water.

        This is not a momentary emotional decision by an unreasoning child. Dedication as a Witness required hard work and determination.

            God gave the Torah specifically to the ancient nation of Israel. (Deuteronomy 5:2, 3; Psalm 147:19, 20)

            The Mosaic Law is not binding on Christians, and even israeli Christians were “released from the Law.” (Romans 7:6)
            The Mosaic Law was replaced by “the law of the Christ,” which includes all that Jesus instructed his followers to do.—Galatians 6:2; Matthew 28:19, 20.

            >What I really want to know is about the whole "everlasting life through belief" shit. Where does this come from as it seems clear you are saved through your works.

            To gain salvation, you must exercise faith in Jesus and demonstrate that faith by obeying his commands.—Acts 4:10, 12; Romans 10:9, 10; Hebrews 5:9.

            The Bible shows that you must have works, or acts of obedience, to prove that your faith is alive. (James 2:24, 26) However, this does not mean that you can earn salvation. It is “God’s gift” based on his “undeserved kindness,” or “grace.”—Ephesians 2:8, 9
