    jehovahs witness's

    here are the rules for jehovah witnesses:

    "THE JEHOVAH’S WITNESS BELIEFS"
    By Dr. Hoyt W. Allen, Jr.
    1. God’s name is Jehovah.
    2. Christ is God’s son and is inferior to him.
    3. Christ was the first of God’s creations.
    4. Christ’s human life was paid as a ransom for obedient humans.
    5.Christ died on a stake, not on a cross.
    6. A clergy class and special titles are improper.
    7. Because world powers and political parties are the unwitting allies of
    Satan, Witnesses refuse to salute the flag of any nation.
    8. Neither holidays with pagan origins and traditions nor birthdays should be celebrated.
    9. Christ, in spirit form, made "an invisible return" to Earth in 1914 and began choosing people who would serve in his kingdom.
    10. Images should not be used in worship.
    11. A Christian ought to have no part in interfaith movements.
    12. Taking blood into the body through mouth or veins violates God’s laws.
    13. Earth will never be destroyed or depopulated.
    14. The kingdom will bring ideal conditions to Earth.
    15. Only 144,000 people will go to heaven and rule with Christ.
    16. The human soul ceases to exist at death.
    17. Hope for the dead is resurrection.
    18. Hell is the grave.
    19. There is no literal place of eternal torment; the death of the wicked means total extinction of the soul.

    First of all, i don't want to offend anyone by the next following piece i wrote:

    To keep it as short as possible i disagree and don't believe in the most rules stated about the Jehovah's Witnesses. Here are a few examples:

    7. Because world powers and political parties are the unwitting allies of
    Satan, Witnesses refuse to salute the flag of any nation.

    Allies of Satan? So are we controlled now by people who are conspiracing together with the Devil himself how to rule us? And whats the problem with the salution of a flag, is it a sin to salute before a flag you dearly love, because it represent the symbol of your country?

    9. Christ, in spirit form, made "an invisible return" to Earth in 1914 and began choosing people who would serve in his kingdom.

    Now i'm starting to wonder if Christ is still around these days and in what form. If you take a good look at the so called year he returned, doesn't that make you wonder why he came that year and two world wars followed thereafter while he was appointing his men for the ruling of his kingdom? Still wondering if Hitler was one of his chosen ones.

    13. Earth will never be destroyed or depopulated

    Never cease to exist? What if the sun explodes over five biljon years or so (and trust me, that is going to happen) would we still live without the sun, who gives us light and makes possible for every living organism to live? And what if the world oil supply would run out within this century, would it be possible to live forever without it?

    I could state some more opinions about the other rules, but i think this is enough for now and i'm sure the others will write their opinions i didn't.

    #If someone got upset or got angry at me after reading this, forgive me, but try to understand that we have the ability to speak up our minds and give any kind of opinions on whatsoever. Still angry? To bad then#

    Actually it was in 1820. lol


    From what I know about JW's they were founded by a collegic Bible Study group that found inconsistancies between the Bible and Christian religious practices, so they formed their own religion.

    I've discussed their beliefs with a few of them. They tend to be very faithful. Unfortunatly the beliefs they explained to me, while perfectly understandable at the time the JW's were formed (1870-1881), doesn't seem to take into account understandings of Jewish culture during Biblical time. Mind you there was a decided lack of understanding about Judism in the US at the time of their forming (can you say rampant anti-seimitism?).

    In general, most of them were some of the nicest people I have meet.

    I find this one interesting:

    Only 144,000 people will go to heaven and rule with Christ.

    Does anyone know where this specific number comes from? It seems kind of random and I'd like to know if they have a reason for saying it, or if it is just something they say is in the Bible
    Dont make your sig that big again or I'll de-brain you---administration

    Actually when the star that is our sun explodes, the planet Earth will already have been destroyed, by the sun gaining in mass and volume. The explosion only comes after. And (if we d'on't manage to get out of Earth by then), we won't have to care about if the Sun is there or not, since the planet will be destroyed.

    Actually living without oil supply, we've done it for some time right? And it does not influence (that I know of) medical researches and other important things. The only important thing I can think about is the lack of a fuel to leave Earth before it is destroyed through shuttles or something, but I am optimistic that we will find a way out with other types of energy.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I've heard of them, sure. The ones I know of don't like me very much. They kinda scare me. I don't mind them, though.
