Wow "pm", you must have thought your points were so good, that you had to write them twice.



I find it interesting that you tell ME to "do my homework", and then you tell me that I might should actually go to a JW meeting.  Actually, I DID...for 13 years.  Furthermore, every single thing I said about JW belief was completely accurate, so I think it is YOU who should do their homework.



However, I am a fair person.  If you have something in my comments that you believe are inaccurate, you are certainly welcome to write to me, and state what they are.  Then we can talk about it.



Furthermore, you are telling me "not to judge", yet the JW religion is one of the most judgmental religions on earth.  You DO know, don't you, that JWs believe they are the ONLY true religion, and that only THEY will survive Armageddon?  You did know that, correct?

One more thing, pm.  I have gone back and read through my answer, and why you even bothered to write your comments is beyond me.  Every single thing I said was accurate, and I think you are someone who really knows little to nothing about JW doctrine.  Which is fine...But then, why write someone and tell them to do their homework, when its obvious you haven't done yours?



As for the "Armageddon" thing, I would suggest you read the sentence right BEFORE it.  I think you might have missed it.  It wasn't a denial of Armageddon taking place....it was a comment about the Watchtower falsely SETTING DATES as to when it would occur.



Again, do your own homework.  Why you even bothered to write with these comments, is a mystery.

Expertise

I was raised in the religion known as Jehovah`s Witnesses for 13 years. Since becoming a born-again Christian, I have researched extensively this religion, especially their doctrines and their history. I can answer questions about their doctrines from the perspective of Biblical Christianity. To be clear: Jehovahs Witnesses is the religion of my upbringing, though I myself was never baptized into the religion, nor have I ever been considered as a Jehovahs Witness.

Experience

29 years of Biblical research into the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith, and how they differ from the teachings of the Watchtower.

Organizations
I would advise each questioner to this forum, to carefully READ the profiles of the various volunteers. There are several such as myself, who are not practicing JWs, but will provide you with an accurate and honest answer, regarding JW teaching. If we don't know the answer, we will try to research and get it for you. There are also some excellent practicing JWs here, who also endeavor to give you a factual and honest answer, based on their point of view. I believe by getting both points of view, the questioner can weigh the evidence for themselves, and make an informed decision. Unfortunately, there are also 3 here who claim to be JWs, but do NOT give honest, or well-researched answers. They will tell you only what they want you to believe, and they often hide facts about the history of their religion, as well as print untruths about other people's beliefs. This is done in an attempt to deceive the unsuspecting reader. It can be easily seen who these 3 are, simply by reading the public posts and "answers" which they write. Their posts will normally be filled with personal attacks, and if you question them about some teaching or aspect of the Watchtower that makes them uncomfortable, they will often reject your question, question your motives for asking it, tell you that you have been reading "apostate" sites, or turn the conversation into an attack on another expert. These ones are better avoided, as there is nothing to be gained by way of positive discussion, as they are not interested in intelligent conversation, or honest dialogue. If after reading the forum, you still have any questions as to who they are, just ask me, and I will be happy to tell you. And I can also provide documentation of their willful dishonesty. One thing is for certain...in a forum where people from both sides claim to be "Christians", there should never be any willful lying. Such ones only create a distraction in the forum, and provide nothing of any real value.

Education/Credentials
High School, some college. Studies of God's Word, the Bible, and how it compares to JW theology. I have found my own personal study and experiences to be far more valuable than any formal education or training. The Bible message is clear...Salvation is ONLY through and by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and no religious organization has a thing to do with it. While attendance at a Bible-preaching, Bible-believing church is a must for spiritual growth and fellowship, no church can grant salvation to its members. Nor is joining a particular group a prerequisite for being saved.
