Jehovah`s Witness/Good Point!

Question
I'll just clarify for Mr. Richard  real quick in his posting from our website.

The article is entitled, "Why Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Call On People Who Already Have a Religion?"

First of all, on this forum, we aren't calling on people, people have to come to us and ask questions about our beliefs. So there is no way we can force our beliefs on anyone else since we are in a forum that is set up specifically for asking JW's questions.  No one who comes here is forced to click on the link that says Jehovah's Witnesses.  

Second, maybe Mr. Richard should direct that article to himself and anyone else who is listed as a "JW Expert" and is not a true JW!  As you all are the ones trying to force your beliefs on people who click on wanting to learn about JW's.

Answer
And since there are only a hand full of people who will speak up and refute the false teachings by ones who are here forcing their non JW beliefs on others, we are labeled by the opposers because we will speak up with boldness. (If other true JW's choose not to speak up then that's fine and their choice.  We are glad they are here).   

Acts 14:2-3 "But the Jews who did not believe stirred up and wrongly influenced the people of the nations against the brothers. 3 So they spent considerable time speaking with boldness by the authority of Jehovah...."

As I've said before and will continue to say, saying that someone is wrong from the Bible's standpoint, refuting a false teaching, defending JW beliefs from being lied on, since ones continue to force their beliefs on us and others who click on Jehovah's Witnesses link, correcting twists of scriptures is not personal attacks, or disrespectful.  

You are in a place you should not be, as I said before, since you and other non JW's insist on being here to misrepresent our beliefs then expect us to speak up and refute it.

In fact if the ones who are not true Jehovah's Witnesses did not take it upon themselves to try and force their beliefs on others, they wouldn't be here to begin with, we wouldn't have to defend our beliefs against lies, and twists and misrepresentations of what we believe, now would we?

We would just answer the questions of ones who are truly interested in our beliefs or who may have concerns or legit questions.  But Satan doesn't want anyone to learn the truth about Jehovah and his son Jesus, and that's why you are here, instead of being on the forum as an expert for your specific belief. Or even on the forum for Critics of Jehovah's Witnesses.

Yes, it's a pubic forum anyone can claim to be a JW Expert, but if you are not a true JW then it's morally wrong.

1 Cor 10:23 "All things are lawful, but not all things are advantageous....."
 
Jesus made a whip of ropes, and he drove out those selling cattle and sheep. He scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. (John 2:13-17) That forceful action made the disciples recall the prophetic words of King David:

Ps. 69:9 "Zeal for your house has consumed me, And the reproaches of those reproaching you have fallen upon me."

By taking firm action, Jesus showed a strong desire to defend true worship.

As Jesus, we have a strong desire to defend true worship.  It's disrespectful when you and other non JW's who pose as "JW Experts" try to force your beliefs on a forum that's set up to ask questions to JW's and then get upset when real JW's speak up about it.

Please take your own advice....

Have a good day, glad you posted that!

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: “Isaiah aptly prophesied about YOU hypocrites, as it is written, ‘This 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)
