    A pyramid obsessed apocalyptic preacher who can't read Greek or Hebrew has discovered the TRUE AND HONEST final solution to the denominational problem

      Jehovah's Witnesses are members of a Christian religious movement.

      The modern-day denomination originated in the USA towards the end of the 19th century, under the leadership of Charles Taze Russell. The headquarters of the movement is in New York.

      There are about 8.5 million active Witnesses in 235 countries in the world (2007), including 1 million in the USA.

      Members of the movement are probably best known for their door-to-door evangelical work; witnessing from house to house, offering Bible literature and converting people to the truth.

      After the death of the apostles, the Church embarked on a "Great Apostasy", diverging from the original teachings of Jesus on several major points.

      In the 1870s, Charles Taze Russell and his associates formed a Bible study group in Pennsylvania, developing teachings that they considered to be a revival of the great truths taught by Jesus and the Apostles.

      Both the Great Apostasy and the Bible Students' subsequent restoration of original Christianity were a fulfilment of Jesus' parable of the wheat and the weeds at Matthew 13:24-30,36-43.

        Why do they reject the trinity?

        • 5 months ago
          JWbot

          God the Father (whose name is Jehovah) is "the only true God".
          Jesus Christ is his firstborn son, is inferior to God, and was created by God.
          The Holy Spirit is not a person; it is God's active force.

          The traditional idea that God is a 'Trinity' of Father, Son and Holy Spirit is false and based on pagan ideas.
          The doctrine is inconsistent with the Bible and contradicts what the prophets, Jesus, the apostles, and the early Christians believed and taught.

        Charles Taze Russel made several failed Armaggedon predictions to his followers in the early Bible Student Movement. He is a false prophet and if you follow him you are doomed to Hell just like him.

        Education is vital. Education helps a person to develop “practical wisdom and thinking ability,” qualities that the Bible praises highly. (Proverbs 2:10, 11; 3:21, 22)

        Further, Jesus told his followers to be teachers of the things he commanded. (Matthew 28:19, 20)

        Thus, we encourage and help those in our congregations to have a well-rounded education, including skills in reading, writing, and communicating, b as well as knowledge about other religions and cultures.—1 Corinthians 9:20-22; 1 Timothy 4:13.

      Jehovah’s Witnesses preach to glorify God and to make known his name. (Hebrews 13:15)

      We also want to obey Christ Jesus, who commanded:
      “Go, therefore, and make disciples of people of all the nations, teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you.”—Matthew 28:19, 20.

      Mormons are functioning members of society despite their moronic beliefs. JWs are wretched fricks who pray on old Hispanic abuelitas and harass their members.

        This generalization and stereotype is hurtful and doesn't accurately represent the beliefs or actions of Jehovah's Witnesses.

        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.

            Remember that Jesus and the first century Christians were ostracized and called a “cult” by the Romans and the Pharisees.

            If one follows the examples of Jesus, they will be hated.

            Notice that Jesus and the Apostles weren’t hated for their political views or for being hypocrites. They were hated for proclaiming the good news of Jehovah’s Kingdom and refusing to hate their enemies.

            We can expect the same or even worse today.

          So does Scientology, but nobody is going to sing their praises.

            Scientology is that it is nothing more than a complex money-making scheme.

            We never use donations to enrich any individual. We have no paid elders or clergy, and Jehovah’s Witnesses are not paid to go from door to door.

            Charles Taze Russel made several failed Armaggedon predictions to his followers in the early Bible Student Movement. He is a false prophet and if you follow him you are doomed to Hell just like him.

            Russell was a prominent Christian brother with a very important role in unlearning religious errors and in contributing to create the movement known today as Jehovah’s Witnesses.

            But we believe —and have always believed— that the miraculous gifts mentioned in the Bible, prophecy included, ended at the death of the apostles.

            "We are not prophesying; we are merely giving our surmises. We do not even aver that there is no mistake in our interpretation of prophecy and our calculations of chronology. We have merely laid these before you, leaving it for each to exercise his own faith or doubt in respect to them" (Zion's Watch Tower, January 1, 1908 page 4110)
