Why JW's are wrong

1)They used to use the King James Version. It wasn't matching their theology, so they made their own version. (NWT) According to them, they are "still working on it".

2)No JW's are being beheaded as the Bible stated Jesus' true followers would be subjegated to. It is happening in mass throughout the Middle East.

3)The Bible predicted a "falling away" from the truth. JW is on a sharp rise, not a decline.

4)The Bible states that one is a "false prophet" if their prophecies do not come true. The JW Watchtower has predicted anything and everything, even giving precise dates. None came true.

5)They are a relatively new belief system. What was God doing for 2,000 years?

6)If Christians are wrong and JW's correct, then the older JW's who used the KJV were dead wrong as well.

7)The Bible declared that the gospel would preached throughout the entire world. JW is not even close to this venture. Christianity has spread across the entire globe.

True.
The same could be said about Christianity, which took 15, fifteen, centuries to reach the Americas, Africa and Asia.

That an all-powerful God would be dependant upon the petty selfish imperial desires of European powers to have the allegedly life-saving Gospel preached to the four corners of the Earth is just ludicrous and laughable.

Yeah, the idea just cracks me up.

Sadly, you are misinformed. Save for perhaps North Korea, they're everywhere. Their leadership uses some of the most vomit-inducing tactics to pressure membership into doing preaching work.

They still use and publish the KJV because they can still prove everything they teach from it.

http://wol.jw.org...

But of course you already know that because I have shown you it before, you are sily dishonestly trying to hide it.

Just like the KJV dishonestly hides Jehovah's name.


2)No JW's are being beheaded as the Bible stated Jesus' true followers would be subjegated to. It is happening in mass throughout the Middle East.

Prophecy, n Revelation says they will be the last to be attacked. After all they are the principle part of Babylon the Great, and the most reprehensible since they have the truth in their hands but do all they can to hide it, just as you are doing here.

Oh, and true Christian will never be subjugated. It is the attempt to subjugate them which causes Armageddon to be unleashed.

Revelation 16:13-15
13 And I saw three unclean inspired expressions that looked like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the wild beast and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 They are, in fact, expressions inspired by demons and they perform signs, and they go out to the kings of the entire inhabited earth, to gather them together to the war of the great day of God the Almighty.
15 "Look! I am coming as a thief. Happy is the one who stays awake and keeps his outer garments, so that he may not walk naked and people look upon his shamefulness."

Interestingly that last verse echoes Jesus description of Armageddon.

Fasle Christianity goes first.


3)The Bible predicted a "falling away" from the truth. JW is on a sharp rise, not a decline.

Not a sharp rise. 2% last year 3% the year before.

But the decline will come when the going gets tough.

Just because it hasn't happened yet doesn't mean it won't.

Anyway you have remarked more than once abut how much less popular they are than the versions, lol, you can't have your cake and eat it too.


4)The Bible states that one is a "false prophet" if their prophecies do not come true. The JW Watchtower has predicted anything and everything, even giving precise dates. None came true.

No, they got the dates wrong, but it will all happen, when it is due to.

besides which they were merely interpreting prophecies already made, as you also know very well.


5)They are a relatively new belief system. What was God doing for 2,000 years?

Waiting for the right time to come round.

He works to a schedule.

He foretold the Messiah about 4,000 years before he arose. What was jehovah doing then?

Waiting for the right time.

No point in things happening too soon.


6)If Christians are wrong and JW's correct, then the older JW's who used the KJV were dead wrong as well.

No they were not wrong to use the KJV, hence they still use it now.

However they did have a lot to learn and a lot of wrong thinking to correct.

Like all things it took time.

Still they got the important things right, and learned the rest as and when Jehovah wanted them to..


7)The Bible declared that the gospel would preached throughout the entire world. JW is not even close to this venture. Christianity has spread across the entire globe.

The JWs are working all round the globe, to say otherwise is a lie and you know it, because I have given you a list of the countries.

Besides Matthew 24:14 says that "This good news of the Kingdom will be preached in the entire inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come"

The Jehovah's Witnesses are the only ones preaching the Kingdom and the Good News about it.

You don;t even know what that is. Nor do the vast majority of so called Christians.

You disappoint me.

I knew you were scripturally ignorant, that much is self-evident, but I didn't expect you to stoop to deliberate lies. like you have done in many recent posts.

After all, we al know who Jesus said the father of the lie is don't we?

The Pharisees did exactly what you are doing, and Jesus called then sons of the Devil because of it.

Doesn't do much for your prospects does it.

Wake up, and get in the lifeboat before your ship sinks and takes you with it..

Yes, but that doesn't stop then peaching.

Hitler banned them too, but that didn't stop them either, even when their brothers and sisters were thrown into the Concentration camps. Even United States Holocaust memorial Museum recognises that.

https://www.ushmm.org...

They even smuggled pages of the Bible in to their Brothers and Sisters wrapped around eggs they delivered to the camps.

Oh and you forgot Socialist countries like Russia, the latest to ban them.
As Peter said to the Sanhedrin who banned the Apostles from preaching, so the JWs say to all Governments and religions who stand in God's way.

"We must obey God as ruler rather than men".

The Pharisees accused Him of blasphemy for making Himself "equal with God".

True, but that was yet another of their lies. He never claimed anything remotely like equality with his father.

In fact when called "Good teacher" by a Pharisee he replied:

Luke 18:18, 19
18 And one of the rulers questioned him, saying: "Good Teacher, what must I do to inherit everlasting life?" 19 Jesus said to him: "Why do you call me good? Nobody is good except one, God.

Hardly claiming equality with God there is he?

The truth it that he never even dreamed of doing so.

You use the lies of a Pharisee to prove your own lies. It fails dismally.

I suggest you read Matthew 23, since you are putting ourself in the same category as those it was aimed at with what you know are lies.

That's why people try to claim I am lying.

True I get things wrong sometimes but there is a world of difference between a mistake and a deliberate lie.

Brontoraptor:

All you are proving by resorting to lies is how desperate you are to defeat the JWs.

Well I have news for you. You can't.

Such as you tried to defeat Christ the same way, and they failed.

Such as you spent 1800 years trying to bury the truth in lies, but exactly when Jehovah needs the truth to come out he finds a small group of people to draw to his son's side to do that work for him, once they have been trained.

You have proved to be a fighter against God and you cannot win.

All yu have porven is that you have so little faith in God that you think you can get away with it.

Well you can't.

And you won't.

So take Jehovah's command at heart and "Get out of her", Babylon the Great, before it is too late., or you will be destroyed with her.

Don't miss out on all the marvellous promises Jehovah holds before you.

Put that zeal for the lie to use for the truth instead. The glory from God is far more valuable than the Glory from men.

I was pointing out that it is ironic that everyone is so convinced their religious beliefs are correct yet people of other religions are just as sure. They are all equally ridiculous.

Oh, but you are lying.

When you pass judgement on books you haven't read you are indeed lying. When you claim all so-called apostate books contain half-truths but admit you have not read them, what are you doing then, besides lying? That's is precisely why, when repeatedly pressed to do so, you cannot provide a single quote from a single chapter from a single apostate book to attest to the validity of your claims.

How do you know that there were any vacancies, if any, in the 144,000 class if Jesus offered this to first century Christians? How can the organization know the exact number of vacancies today without any records from the first century?
Why are you called, "Jehovah's Witnesses" and not "Christians"? Since Jehovah's Witnesses appeal to Isa 43:12; 44:8 for scriptural support that they should be called, "Jehovah's Witnesses" then what was the "new name" prophesied in Isa 62:2? Can't be "Jehovah's Witnesses", for God already used it 20 chapters earlier. Could the new name be "Christian" after our savior "Christ"?
Why would the name God gave to His people not be "Christians" since Acts 11:26 says, "The disciples were first called Christians in Antioch"? Why is the name "Jehovah's Witness" found nowhere in the New Testament, if that is God's divine name for His people under the new covenant? Why would God wait almost 2000 years to suddenly start using the name "Jehovah's Witness". Does this mean that first century Christians were not known as Jehovah's Witnesses"?
If the name Jehovah is so important, then why is it never used in the entire Greek New Testament? If men edited out the name of God, "YHWH" when they copied the New Testament, as only the Watchtower organization claims, then how can we have any confidence in any of the New Testament? Should we discard the New Testament or the Watchtower organization as unreliable?
If the name "Jehovah" is so important, then why does Acts 4:12 say, "There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name [v10 Jesus Christ] under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved"? Would this not have been the logical place for God to have used the name "YHWH"?

The biggest point is really that JW have predicted nothing. Even if they predicted 90% of anything it would still be enough to bar it as a cult. Also as the OP points out their own scripture has been changed. Commonly they come into your house and present you with some general ideas from your own bible and then whip out their own claiming its the right one. Its rather unfortunate because all that dedication is rather meaningless.

Let's be clear about one thing;

On the June 2015 broadcast the Governing Body admits Jehovah is not the most accurate pronunciation.

A religion named after an equivocated pronunciation, accompanied by claims God's name is of paramount importance.
The hypocrisy.
What a sham.
