Jehovah`s Witness/Just seems strange



Let me just state I am not disfellowshipped. But about three years ago I stopped attending meetings. looking in your profile it say's you too left the truth and returned and you can help others to return. The big problem I have is that it just seems strange that a small group of people have the truth and will be saved and no one else, surely if you're a good person it counts with God and not just having the label of "Jehovah's witness" and belonging to a small group who most consider strange.

What do you say?


Hi mate

Thanks for writing.

Firstly let me say I made this public.

The big problem you have is that when you leave the truth you lose your spirituality you lose your ability to see with spiritual insight. Let's not forget that only holy spirit allows you the privilege to see things spiritually. Let me give you an example of this very thing.

I have an uncle and aunty who left the truth after my cousin got disfellowshipped. They never excepted the discipline from Jehovah. Now I remember in later years they where very weak in the truth,however before that as a younger man my uncle was serving as a ministerial servant and pioneering. Now at their Son's wedding which was held in a church they where there right up the front of the church singing all the hymns and joining in the prayers.I mean that's just ridiculous!! But you see they just lost their spirituality their ability to see things as spiritual people, this is what happens when you leave the just completely lose it.

To know and understand the truth is a privilege

Matt 11:

"I publicly praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and intellectual ones and have revealed them to babes"

James 4:

"God opposes the haughty ones, but he gives undeserved kindness to the humble ones"

When you lose the truth you lose that privilege

Now it's very possible you where just some "wishy washy" brother in the first place.I don't know that, cause I don't know you, but the point is this, your comments are evidence THAT YOU HAVE LOST SPIRITUAL INSIGHT so let me address them.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<The big problem I have is that it just seems strange that a small group of people have the truth and will be saved and no one else>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

I used to be of this mindset at one point as well,however human opinion is irrelevant this is what the scriptures say.

Matt 7:

13 "Go in through the narrow gate; because broad and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are the ones going in through it; 14 whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are the ones finding it"

So is it a small group of people. We've also just seen a scripture that it's not the haughty so who is it, then?

Psalms 37:

11 "But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth,
And they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace"

It's the meek it's the humble. Now in Satan's world how many do you think are like this?? The answer is a small percentage.

Now you may say "I know some meek people who are not witnesses" but that's not your decision to make whether they're meek or not, that's Jehovah's. So again your opinion is irrelevant!!

John 6:

44 "No man can come to me unless the Father, who sent me, draws him"

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<surely if you're a good person it counts with God >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Again the Bible tells us different, we've seen some scriptures here's another one

Matt 7:

21 "Not everyone saying to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the kingdom of the heavens, but the one doing the will of my Father who is in the heavens will"

Notice it's the one's WHO ARE DOING GOD'S WILL. It's not just about who you consider a good person. There's work involved.

What about Lot's wife?? She was a "good" person. But she was disobedient and it cost her.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<and not just having the label of "Jehovah's witness">>>>>>>>>>>>>

I agree Jehovah's witness label does not save you. Just because you are a CALLED a "Jehovah's witness" means nothing , you still have live up to your dedication. You still have to do God's will.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<and belonging to a small group who most consider strange>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Noah was considered strange,he was laughed at, Jesus was considered crazy and so where the first century Christians

They where called a sect, the sect of the nazarenes in some places

Acts 24:

5 "spearhead of the sect of the Naz·a·renes"

Which is the sort of thing people say about us today. But we love it, cause it happened before to Jesus and his followers and we expect it

So let me conclude by saying.

You bring nothing new to the table I've heard this sort of things hundreds of times from within my own family, it's thought's I've even considered myself in the past. But the Bible disagrees with these thought's

So you need to humble yourself and make your way back to Jehovah. You never know he may have sent you here today. If you're not willing to do that ,then I'm afraid no one can help you. You need to help yourself, first.

I have many years of experience serving Jehovah . I have known Jehovah a long time and I have known his organization . I have been privileged to see great progress not only in my own personal relationship with my God and Father but within his organization. I am an avid reader of the bible and have been gifted by my Father with the indescribable privilege of being allowed to understand his own word.


The truth is all about scripture and logic. The two go hand in hand . There is not one bible verse that cannot be understood within the realms of human reasoning. Not one!! Why would it?? The bible is God's message to his creation . His creation who he made to understand things in a specific way. God is not stupid or unwise as to leave as a message then allow us to guess what it means or who he is. 1 Tim 2:3This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God, 4whose will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth" Notice the expression "accurate knowledge".

The bible leaves signs of true christianity there are many. Jehovah's witnesses meet every single sign. One sign is the removal of false teachings that permeated the world soon after the apostles died. Jesus foretold this and he also foretold of the restoration of pure worship in the period known as the last days. The days we are currently living in. Jesus was a master of using illustrations he used an illustration to highlight this point Matt 13: "The Kingdom of the heavens may be likened to a man who sowed fine seed in his field. 25While men were sleeping, his enemy came and oversowed weeds in among the wheat and left. 26When the stalk sprouted and produced fruit, then the weeds also appeared. 27So the slaves of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow fine seed in your field? How, then, does it have weeds?’ 28He said to them, ‘An enemy, a man, did this.’ The slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go out and collect them?’ 29He said, ‘No, for fear that while collecting the weeds, you uproot the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest season, I will tell the reapers: First collect the weeds and bind them in bundles to burn them up; then gather the wheat into my storehouse" Why did he speak in illustrations? Matt 13:10So the disciples came and said to him: “Why do you speak to them by the use of illustrations?” 11In reply he said: “To you it is granted to understand the sacred secrets of the Kingdom of the heavens, but to them it is not granted" The kingdom of the heavens is full of sacred secrets that Jesus reveals only to his followers. This privilege is open to all who are really willing to submit to God and his Christ in action not just in words. These are the ones God is looking for. Are you really one?? If so I encourage you to let Jehovah's witnesses show you what the Bible really teaches.

False religion is disgusting to God and to his true worshippers it is likened in the Bible to a harlot Rev 17:"I will show you the judgment upon the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, whereas those who inhabit the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication" Whereas the bride of Christ is likened to a virgin Rev 14: 4"These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins" These are both used as spiritual terms here and show the importance of pure and clean worship for God's people.
