Rita seems to have a real problem with this.From a earlier question she sent to another so called  "expert" here she does can not let go.  The first person she asked gave a reasonably balanced answer but that did not seem to satisfy here as she has come back at least twice since then, and another family member has also asked the same question. Rita according to the so called Sister T ask here the same question and then you, and Eddie pokes his nose in and she gets upset



This appears to be the first question

Hi Mr. Holland and Rita,



We live in a world where tolerance is at an all time low and many people are measured by the last mistake they make(s). Please be kind to one another and love each other as Christ loved us. This difference of opinion is that, difference of opinion. We must agree to disagree my friends. We are all children to the same God. The God of love and peace which is parts of his fruits of the person. Is there anyway to resolve this problem? I come from a background that we can actually help and mend broken spirits. Lets put this in pray and see if we can come up with a solution. If this is something that we call do, I will pour myself out to your both just to resolve and reconcile with each other. If we can agree with this let me know and I can arrange a date that we can talk this out like responsible men, God fearing men and end with a Christian level of love. Is that not worth agreeing too? Please let me now. My phone number is 7068968596. I know with God's spirit this can be resolved. Love you all my brothers and looking to hear from you soon.

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.
