Failed Jehovah's Witness Predictions
Holy crap!

This is almost as bad as the GLP Failed Predictions Thread.


How could anyone follow a denomination (and I am using the term loosely) that has proven itself wrong over and over and over again?

Faith to me is having left the sanctuaries of men and their theology, and to come out from among them that dance around a golden calf, by the making of their own hands, entrusting completely and without reserve to God within.

Sex offenders not only are safe embedded in the congregations, but the GB doctrine protects their identity from the rest of the members.

Re: Failed Jehovah's Witness Predictions
What I don't get is that the JWs (incorrectly) believe only 144,000 go to heaven. Just with the 7 billion people breathing on the planet right now that would be a nearly unatainable goal to be a part of such a small group. Add in the billions upon billions for recorded history and i've got to wonder why these people keep knocking on my door to hand me a flyer.

If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

 Quoting: Oyster


If I understand it right, it's borderline brainwashing too. They isolate and deprive fresh victi... "converts" of all contact with family and former friends while they are being indoctrinated.

My wife had a family member that was very nearly snatched up by them. It was very difficult just to get to talk to him for a while. Lots of wrestling with them and him and a lot of prayer later, he came around and cut the JWs loose. I don't know what their initial lure was or why he couldn't see the disception, but it was like he was getting sucked into a black hole.

They can't help it. They are brainwashed, mind controlled puppets who are more afraid of thinking than any group of people I've ever known.

I feel very sad for them because their love for God has been used against them. They are trapped within a cult whose only purpose is to collect money. Once they are in, getting out costs them their families and friends who are still in. The objective is to shun those who disbelieve the power and authority of the GB in the hopes it will bring them back. ???
