Re: Anyone here Jehovah's Witnesses?
Do you guys actually believe this stuff, or is this just someone messing around with Wikipedia?
EDIT: Sorry, that came off a little harsh. No malice intended, just intrigued by these specific beliefs, especially the one about 144,000 people being saved.
No, I'm not a JW, as a matter of fact, I'm not a Christian. I really don't understand why some people on this board feel the need to dog this particular religion when all religions have things that make absolutely no sense on the surface. To disrespect this particular religion is not only insensitive, but just plain wrong.
It's not what religion a person believes in, but how they represent their religion/beliefs by their actions, not by what their religion says.
BTW, if no malice was intended, you could have deleted the post or at least the part of your post you felt might have been harsh.
Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.
