Waste2005-07-03 14:04:35dabit


Why would anyone oppose a religion that they don't want to be part of?? What purpose would downgrading a specific religion create for them?? GROW UP !!! IF you don't want to be part of a group of people...MOVE ON with your life!!! If I don't want to be a part of (lets say) the BIG BROTHER's of AMERICA....or the SALVATION ARMY....I would quit and move on!! Why in heavens name would I want to create websites and newsletters against the organization? I probably could write against ANY organization or group I've EVER associated with in my life, but WHY would I???? The only thing that I could think that it could be is plain bitterness!! There is alot of good you can do for the world in many other organizations. Don't waste your time going against something or someone that you don't want (Jehovah's Witnesses or anyone else), or a group that doesn't want you!!! ITS A WASTE OF PRECIOUS TIME !!! MOVE ON with your life, or get a hobby!!


 
It is all scriptural2005-07-02 17:54:30rambaldi


Jerry writes" JWs believe and teach that their religion is the ONLY religion on earth that serves God, and that their WatchTower Society is actually God\'s governmental representatives on earth. JWs believe and teach that EVERYONE ELSE ON EARTH is a servant of Satan, and that everyone on earth that are not JWs will be killed at Armageddon, which JWs hope and pray will occur ASAP. Jerry," I reply: Since that what you wrote is what is taught in the Bible, I am wondering: What is bad about that? What is bad about believeing and teaching that there is only one true religion? Israel destroyed cities because those cities were not the true worshippers. They did that by Jehovah God's command. The Bible says that those that come out of the great tribulation have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the lamb. That sounds like those who do not worship the True God Jehovah through his son Jesus do not survive. Even the writer of Revelation said for the end to come quickly. So if you condemn us you condemn scripture.

AD HOMINEM ATTACKS BY WITNESSES>"Redbank" you are a clasisc example of a Jehovah's Witness apologist....... The greatest courage is facing the truth and the truth takes no prisoners..... God hates a coward (Rev.21:8)...... Jehovah's Witnesses,demand of strangers (on your doorstep). That you examine your faith. Yet,....members are forbidden from doing the same!! (It's Negative) ( 1John 4:1,1Thess.5:21 ) Such utter hypocrisy...... "The emperor has no clothes" www.DannyHaszard.com visit my home page / Danny Haszard Bangor Maine USA....Former member of the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses Rockland Massachusetts for 33 years and a 3rd generation JW [ I've been around the block a few times.... » Theologically,Jehovah's Witnesses are a cult of Christianity.The oppressive organization does not represent historical, Biblical Christianity in any way. Sociologically, it is a destructive cult whose false teachings frequently result in spiritual and psychological abuse, as well as needless deaths.

Okay Jerry, There goes the United States Constitution then. According to you, we should suppress all groups that don't live up to your vision of appropriate. YOUR VISION!? Take a look around you. Who are your friends? Who are the ones that invite you to their homes so they can share your ideas? People who would scrap the United States Constitution and BAN ideas that YOU don't understand or care for? Pick up a history book man. The people who founded this country were chased out of Europe by people who hold your "VISION". How do Jehovah's Witnesses put it? We are in the End Times or Last Days? Everyone who is not Christlike and loving will not be in the New World? If it isn't in the Holy Scriptures then it isn't part of the true religion? Sounds like that's straight from the Bible. Do you want to throw that out; suppress it; ban it; BURN IT?

JW publicity should be surpressed2004-07-04 13:04:58jerry


Just curious when you are going to attend a KKK Konvention, or maybe a Satanist Convention, and put a "happy face" on those kooks, just as you did for the JWs? Are you totally CLUELESS? JWs believe and teach that their religion is the ONLY religion on earth that serves God, and that their WatchTower Society is actually God's governmental representatives on earth. JWs believe and teach that EVERYONE ELSE ON EARTH is a servant of Satan, and that everyone on earth that are not JWs will be killed at Armageddon, which JWs hope and pray will occur ASAP. Even the KKK does not stack up to the JWs level of bigotry and hatred. And, STUPID REPORTERS LIKE YOU fall for their annual Convention PR campaign to get local newspapers to give them free publicity. NICE JOB!!! --Jerry Jones (location not submitted)
