If you EAT blood you digest it. If you transfuse it, it is an organ. For fucks sake are you that stupid? The text in Acts has to do with the gladitorial events and the drinking of blood to take on the spirit of your dead opponent. Learn history TARD...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1003364


If the bible says abstain it means to not use it in any way.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1550123





CONTEXT is WRONG there guy, read what was happening. Almost EVERY scholar disagrees with you. JWTARD...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1003364


Then why does it say in Acts, after mentioning to abstain from blood, "good health to you" ? Aids, hepatitus, and every other virus under the sun can be caught from a tranfusion. Go ahead- do what pleases you, JW's will not stop you, that is your choice. As for me, no thanks, I would rather die faithful and be remembered in the resurrection- to life eternal on a paradise earth, God willing. Nice christian language by the AC above, btw....
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30260631





AHAHAHAHAHAHA, oh my fucking god, do you know anything? It was the same as saying a greeting!!!!!!!!!!! They did not mean "good health to you" as in disease, they meant it as a parting greeting like good bye!!!!!!!!!! Holy shit, people....

The sad thing is, that I'm sure god respects and adheres to LIFE more than death. Life is SACRED, so although Acts does not condemn blood transfusions, you should be looking at it from a different perspective. So what if you got AIDs or some other shit, but you live 10 more years. Its about life and having respect for it. ...but you go ahead and grant a death wish to someone you love, yea god really wants that... maybe YHWH does, after all he enjoys the smell of burnt flesh...

Its funny to walk by one of thier sancuaries and its surrounded by a fence and a locked gate as if they dont want someone knocking at the door. They are a cult and when a family member leaves the cult they discomunicate them and try to make thier life hell. Its the work of satan to break up families

Member's give an oath to an earthly organization in the form of two baptismal questions,so that the person will now give up all his rights to the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society,INC. organization stealing the GODHEAD that belongs to Christ's Incoming Kingdom.

The first question is:
On the basis of the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, have you repented of your sins and dedicated yourself to Jehovah to do his will?

The second is:
Do you understand that your dedication and baptism identify you as one of Jehovah's Witnesses in association with God's spirit-directed organization? Having answered yes to these questions, candidates are in a right heart condition to undergo Christian baptism."

it seems they would get more done as far as witnessing and spreading the word on the internet. I grew up a JW. and I always thought to myself,that they are wasting time driving around to empty houses all day long witnessing to the dogs at home.

Most people don't even answer the door. Gas is expensive these days. They make little old ladies in their 70's and up feel quilty they don't get many hours out in service to report.

From what I see they do witness on the internet like OP and DGN. They also do letter writing and calling people on telephones. Let's see, they also do what they call informal witnessing where they speak to people when they are out and about. There is also street witnessing in cities. Going door to door is only a part of their preaching work.

I love debating JW's.
When the first two arrive, they can't answer my bible questions.
Then when they go get a higher JW after several times at my house unable to answer my bible questions.
Then I get a elder who I get to talk to directly and I start speaking Hebrew to them and open up on them, I love the perplexity of their faces.

When I ask them for an example, How come you think you are the only chosen of God, when in the book of Rev. chapter 2 and 3 Christ found no fault with two of those 7 churches mentioned in those two chapters.
Duh? I get.. lol

Then I open up on them what the Word says and I love to watch their faces again.
Sorry, if you be JW, don't get upset with me.
Just telling it like it is.. or was what ever the way you want to look at it.

My brother had them at his house about a month ago. They were there every Wed. for two months.
My brother invited me to one of their chats, because my brother did not know the Word as well as I do.
They did not like me much because when they presented their paper work they brought with them from the last meeting with my brother. I proved them wrong. They did not like that and the oldest elder got upset and started yelling.
When she relaxed from her emotional explosion I said, only Jesus sets the path to the Kingdom of God.

And if you read closely, you will find Jesus DID INDEED find fault with some of those congregations and he provided

counsel and commendation where needed.

Re: Why do Jehovah's Witnesses continue to preach door to door and in other ways? And what do you think of them?

It is a command to preach and ALL who call themselves Christians need to be doing this.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1550123



James 3:1 - Not many of YOU should become teachers, my brothers, knowing that we shall receive heavier judgment

Eph. 2:8-10 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.


Eph 4:11 - And he gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelizers, some as shepherds and teachers,
 Quoting: Nine's




No where in the gospels does the Son of God command christians to preach or teach... that is all Pauline mumbo jumbo, and judeo control...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1003364


"And Jesus approached and spoke to them, saying: “All authority has been given me in heaven and on the earth. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded YOU. And, look! I am with YOU all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.” Mt28:18
 Quoting: DGN

Does not mean they are right.

They are a cult whos leader was a mason and whos governing body are all masons.

They are packed to the rafters with pedophiles as well.

it seems they would get more done as far as witnessing and spreading the word on the internet. I grew up a JW. and I always thought to myself,that they are wasting time driving around to empty houses all day long witnessing to the dogs at home.

Most people don't even answer the door. Gas is expensive these days. They make little old ladies in their 70's and up feel quilty they don't get many hours out in service to report.

My mother thinks these workls will get her into paradise,and it has heaped a huge burden on her. She has to make the meetings,or they show up at her home and tell her she is missing too many meetings,and will lose out on life.

From what I see they do witness on the internet like OP and DGN. They also do letter writing and calling people on telephones. Let's see, they also do what they call informal witnessing where they speak to people when they are out and about. There is also street witnessing in cities. Going door to door is only a part of their preaching work.

that they have to count each month. If you get a few hours,I have heard talks that called that token service.
 Quoting: Faithful and Truth


You, my friend, seem quite out of touch with the congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses. The amount of time turned in each month by individual Jehovah's Witness serves the purpose of compiling a world wide report of the total amount of hours spent preaching by Jehovah's Witnesses in over 234 lands through out the earth. This is done monthly and yearly. It serves as an encouragement to all Jehovah's Witnesses to know our brothers and sisters are united with us in the fulfillment of Matthew 24:14:

"And this good news of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth,, as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come"-Matthew 24:14


Jehovah God doesn't set a limit or a minimum of time that each one should preach. Circumstances and situations vary widely among the 6,000,000 Jehovah's Witnesses earth wide. All Jehovah asks is that we give our whole souled best. We are not in competition with one another, and if someone is, then they need to examine their motive for preaching.

It may be true that some lack the zeal they once had and give only "token service"- that is not for any individual to judge. We ourselves are the only one who can make that assessment.
