The sorry bastards only show at my door one time.

My sister got involved with that cult and died because of it.

She refused a blood transfusion that would have saved her life.

It is a cult of fools that needs to be outlawed.

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


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.
 Quoting: Faithful and Truth


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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1550123


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.

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."

Any "organization" that teaches that ONLY by being a part of their specific body can one be found acceptable to God, has denied the power of Yeshua.

At the point that you teach that people MUST become part of your "church" in order to attain admittance into paradise, you quit being a partaker and become a usurper.

THAT, is the spirit of antichrist.

HE needs no denominational tag, and neither do we.

I think they believe they are following God's command. I believe they need to read the bible other than the one they use which has altered some very fundamental truths. I believe they are mislead and will then mislead.

They also don't go to war and murder people. They might not take blood but they certainly don't spill it in wars. They would die before they did that.

They understand the corruption that is in this world and their eyes are more wide open than most who make a religion of nationalism. They are true Christians because they do have love for people/neighbors. And they follow Jesus who said to love and pray for your enemies. Not search them out and murder them. Christians who go to war should be ashamed of themselves and especially the pastors and priests who condone it. They are sons of vipers and wolves in sheep's clothing.

yea, thats why the canadian bethel reported 1.2 billion in income last year with the US bethel branch reporting the same. You guys don't do relief programs. In fact, the guidelines from Bethel is if the person has home insurance to charge the persons insurance as "payment" for material and time. I know how you people work, been there, done that. You do realize that bethel invests heavily into stocks and real estate? Why they even own stock in Philip Morris and Rand Cam (military company)...
