QUESTION: Sister T
Thankyou for your speedy reply to that question.
The reason l ask was l have contact with JWs and have read some of your mags!
And it talks about something about 144000!
And Gods name being Jehovah, and other people not using Gods name!
Even the JWs say it's the anionted that will be with God.
I myself do read at times the bible. I just think at times mankind has made a right mess of Gods word, and everyone claims their right and everyone else is wrong!!!
I do have respect for JWs as they seem to love Gods word and beat the streets with it.
Like l said l do have some contact with them! Not a lot, some.
So l have to ask you sister T!
What makes JWs right and everyone else wrong?
I will Thankyou for your reply
And you yourself have a delightful day.

Answer
Hello Irene, thanks for writing and you are welcome.  I try to reply as soon as possible, sometimes there's a delay.

Irene, your respect for JW's is much appreciated.  As we strive to live the way Jesus directed us to in the Bible, that is to do his Father's Will, as Jesus taught us to Pray:

Matt 6:10 "Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth"

Yes, you are right all Religions say they are the true ones, if they didn't then they wouldn't be in that religion, each one feels that way.  And with so many different religions in the world today, it seems difficult to know which is the right one, or true one.  

One could do a process of elimination, or one could make it easier by using the Bible as a guide.  See the Bible is from God, it's like a letter to us, giving us what is acceptable to God and what is not.  Since the Bible is from God, it's harmonious, from cover to cover.  There are no contradictions in the Bible, if there are any contradictions, then it's with men, not with the Bible.

The Bible helps us to see that Jesus founded Christianity, not any human or any man.  JW's founder is Jesus, not a man, as the Bible is the ultimate guide that we follow.  

I'm going to put up some ways to recognized true religion, please look up the scriptures in your Bible, and if a religion does not go by, live by, and teach what the Bible says, how can it be true?  There's no different truths.  It doesn't matter how long or how big a religion has been around.  As Jesus said the road leading to life has few on it (Matt 7:14) And we know only 8 people survived the flood of Noah's day.


Please consider these five identifying marks:

▪ True worshippers respect the Bible as Godís Word. They strive to live by its principles. So true religion differs from religion that is based on menís ideas. (Matthew 15:7-9) True worshippers do not preach one thing and practice another.óRead John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16, 17.

▪ Jesusí true followers honor Godís name, Jehovah. Jesus honored Godís name by making it known. He helped people to know God and taught them to pray that Godís name be sanctified. (Matthew 6:9) Where you live, which religion makes Godís name known?óRead John 17:26; Romans 10:13, 14.

▪ True Christians preach about Godís Kingdom. God sent Jesus to preach the good news of the Kingdom. Godís Kingdom is the only hope for mankind. Jesus continued speaking about it until his dying day. (Luke 4:43; 8:1; 23:42, 43) He said that his followers would preach about it. If someone approaches you to speak about Godís Kingdom, to which religion does he likely belong?óRead Matthew 24:14.

▪ Jesusí followers are no part of this wicked world. You can recognize them by the way they take no part in politics or social conflicts. (John 17:16; 18:36) Also, they do not imitate the worldís harmful practices and attitudes.óRead James 4:4.

▪ True Christians have outstanding love for one another. From Godís Word, they learn to respect all ethnic groups. Although false religions have often strongly supported the wars of the nations, true worshippers refuse to do so. (Micah 4:1-3) Rather, true Christians unselfishly use their time and resources to help and encourage others.óRead John 13:34, 35; 1 John 4:20.


Jehovah's Witnesses as a group do all the above.  

Also you mentioned the 144,000, I answered a question pertaining to that here it is:

I can answer questions related to Jehovah's Witnesses and the Bible. I love learning the truth from the Bible and helping others to learn that truth as well. I don't know everything but will answer from the Bible, I like to use illustrations as well to help a person relate to what is being said. The Bible has the last say so over any person.

Experience

I am an active baptized Jehovah's Witness and Jehovah is Almighty God,(Ps. 83:18) and his Son Jesus Christ died so that everyone exercising faith in him may not be destroyed but have everlasting life. (John 3:16). I support my fellow Witnesses on this board who are real, and Jehovah's worldwide visible organization, including the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses. As God is not a God of disorder, and there could not be order if there were not ones to take the lead. Taking the lead and having a leader is not the same, our leader is Jesus Christ, and in order to have unity and order, there has to be arrangements in place. As the first century Christians had, there were men taking the lead, (Acts 6:1-6) as with Moses, (Exodus 18:21) and in our day, in following with Bible truths, we do the same. When people twist that around to us worshiping men, it is just a straight out lie! Why would the Scripture at 1 Tim. 3:1-10, 12, 13 give the criteria for men reaching out for an office of overseer if that was not meant to be? (Phil 1:1, Acts 20:17, 28, Eph. 4:11, 12, 2 Cor. 3:4-6). If we were not supposed to have men who take the lead, why was this scripture penned? James 5:14-15 "Is there anyone sick among YOU? Let him call the older men of the congregation to [him], and let them pray over him, greasing [him] with oil in the name of Jehovah. 15 And the prayer of faith will make the indisposed one well, and Jehovah will raise him up. Also, if he has committed sins, it will be forgiven him."

Organizations
If you have legit questions and want to know the truth, please ask, but if you are here to spread your lies and twists of the scriptures or get your falsehoods out, you may get rejected! The truth is from the Bible, if what you say does not harmonize with the Bible then what you say is wrong! Context and other scriptures help determine scriptures that may stump us, let scripture interpret scripture. The Bible does not contradict itself, so if what you are being taught or if what you are teaching makes it seem like the Bible is contradictory, remember it's not the Bible it's the man-made teaching! Doctrines of men! Mark 7:6, 7 "He said to them: ďIsaiah aptly prophesied about YOU hypocrites, as it is written, ĎThis people honor me with [their] lips, but their hearts are far removed from me. 7 It is in vain that they keep worshiping me, because they teach as doctrines commands of men." (also Romans 10:2, 3)

Education/Credentials
Matthew 24:14 says "And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come." We are doing that today, we are living in times of Bible Prophecy and as a Jehovah's Witness, we have the privilege to be apart of a prophecy spoken by Jesus himself! The good news of the Kingdom. Ask yourself, what kingdom? then read Daniel 2:44! It's a real government. Take heed now! Listening to men over God will mean your life.(Prov 3:5,6, Ps. 146:3) A lie will never become truth, No matter how long or how many people say it or speak it. Learn what the Bible really teaches, seek out Jehovah's ways, serving God in truth is only acceptable to him,(John 4:23, 24) you can not be serving God acceptably if what you believe is a lie! Pray for understanding and ask Jehovah to search your heart and draw you! (John 6:44, 65) Now is the time to be with the people who are called by Jehovah's name! (Acts 15:14, 17, Isa. 43:7, 10, Zech 8:23)
