    Hi Frank,
    Firs of all, why do you care so much about what Jehovah's Witnesses think? I mean, I'm flattered, but why ask for our opinion, and not someone else's?
    Second, what exactly is your question concerning John11? Could you please be more specific?

    I ask about John 11:23-27.Because I wanted to know what jehovah's witnesses think about it in general.And I like to see two different opinions back to back.To compare with.:)

    In those verses Jesus tells Martha that her brother is going to be resurrected, meaning that he (Jesus) had the power to bring someone dead back to life. That includes all those who demonstrated faith in him. Does this answer your question?

    Scripture

    25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

    How can a person who is dead believe in Jesus?

    All are dead in Adam. The entire human race has been condemned in Adam. Therefore, in Adam all die.
    So, though he were dead, if he believes, yet shall he live.

    26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.

    And he who lives and believes is said to already be in possession of that promised life.

    John 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

    6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

    And those who don't demonstrate faith in him are already dead by being in Adam when he sinned. Does that mean all are guilty of Adam's transgression? No, it mean all are of the same nature as Adam when he sinned. It is that very nature which has been condemned.

    But, now, there is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus. What the law was unable to do, by being weakened by the flesh, God did, when he sent His own son in that same flesh, and thereby condemned the sin in the flesh when it was destroyed on the cross.

    This is the 3rd or 4th time that @Frank Goad has asked the question of your faith community. He used to identify himself as a member of that community even though in actuality he was not. Perhaps he believes that the answers he gets will change.

    Frank...it doesn't matter what we tell you.....you never believe it for longer than 5 minutes anyway. @RabbiO's comment was pretty accurate I think.....why do you bother asking the same questions of us over and over? You apparently have commitment issues and your obsessions with the occult dictates what you want to believe.....you will never get the answers you seek because God's word does not contain them....unfortunately, 2 Timothy 3:7 seems to describe you. :(

    Yes, I find at www.jw.org that Jehovah's Witnesses do believe Jesus is the life, the way, the truth and the life.

    I think this might work because Matthew 7:7-8.

    NO.
    "I think" never means "God said".....OK? If what you think is not what God thinks, then his thoughts will never be your thoughts and vice versa. He will not alter to fit in with what you want to believe...do you think you need to understand that?
