Originally posted by duecerI dont understand why you keep harrassing the poor JWs like that. They are already a persecuted group of people. You are getting just like that foolish Raj..something guy ..
the watchtower society claims that they ere the one true religion because they are: 1, persecuted for their beliefs and 2, they know the name of the one true God.
I would counter this with the fact that no religion or people has suffered as much persecution as the Jews, and the Jewish scholars know the actual true personal name of God....and it is not Jeho ...[text shortened]... rther proof on this please follow this very safe link:http://www.fossilizedcustoms.com/name.html

I just want to have a friendly discussion about belief systems, is that so wrong?

Ask Divegeester ...
JWs dont discuss. They inform. Its a briefing session.
They teach, you shut up and listen.
And they have proof that they were sent by God to do that as well ...LOL .
Originally posted by duecerGood Luck. I went down that road with G and RC several months ago, as did several others on this site. Were you not around? Many of their beliefs are truly ludicrous. I will read but refrain from commenting.

Originally posted by avalanchethecatI always do. There are points in which I agree with the JW's. Where I differ is usually in unorthodox doctrine gleaned from either uncheckable sources, or sources that the Academic world has deemed suspect.
You might try looking at the information they draw to your attention then.

I would say that if you are Christian, then you too should admit to the same criticisms you level at JWs. Much of the Bible is an uncheckable source, and the Academic world deems it suspect.
