    All can see worldwide the division that the spirit of antichrist is causing in mortal hearts. Even in those who are told they are Christian. 33,000 religions claiming to be Christian--one is Christian, 32,999 are not. There is no division with Jesus( 1Cor 1:10)--the problem I see is that 32,999 of those religions are NOT teaching what Jesus actually taught--they are being paid to teach that religions brand of dogma.
    Hearts are being filled with hatred by those who cause division. STOP believing the blind guides. Learn and apply all that Jesus taught--it is Gods will( Matt 7:21).
    Here is an ultra important truth Jesus taught us----- Matthew 6:33--Therefore, keep on seeking-FIRST- the kingdom and his( YHVH(Jehovah) righteousness and all these other things will be added to you.= ultra important that a mortals heart instructs their minds daily to do this. The true followers hearts do just that without fail.
    Another super important truth from Jesus---Man does not live by bread alone, but by EVERY utterance from God= OT-NT--year after year and one still remembers new points--The real teachers of Jesus makes 100% sure this is accomplished by the Flock. All know if their teachers teach these two super truths.

    I would rather reason than to subject my mind to the folly of a fantasy that calls itself religion.

    I thought it was the judgement day of the Lord, not the final exam day of the Lord.

    How lucky it is that you found the only right one! What were the odds that you, out of the billions on the planet, happened to just have the right religion land in your lap! You must be awfully special to God, where the rest of the world isn't so favored by the Almighty as you! It's a miracle the likes of which the universe as a whole seldom sees! I'm just trying to fathom the odds! It's like winning the lottery every single day for 72 years straight! Absolutely amazing!

    I don't think he said in his OP that he found the only right one. Maybe he's just asking for our guidance.

    I don't think its allowed, but it is easy to see if one believes Jesus over men. Jesus points all to his Father, not to himself. John 4:22-24- John 5:30

    They knock on my door every week and the mormons I get twice a year. It is hilarious how uncomfortable I make the religious feel.

    I'm not worried. I heard it's multiple choice.

    I searched through many religions claiming to be Christian- The only ones I found who teach what Jesus taught are the JW teachers. Its easy to see if one believes Jesus over men. Most outright refuse.
    Facts of Jesus teachings and Israelite God worship history proves 100% there is no trinity god in existence. Few bother to look--Its only their eternal life on the line.

    I don't think the JW teachers teach what Jesus teaches, and I think by cutting off all other Christians they embody the principles of antichrist. What do they bring to the table except for more division?

    Let me ask. How do we see this without reference to scripture?

    How would a non-christian know this in general terms without reference to scripture and jargon terminology?

    For example, if I saw or was involved in say the Vietnam war, I wouldn't need anything written to know about it, about communism, and Vietnam's issues within their own country. High schoolers can read it in a book but they can't connect to real life unless there are people who actually experienced it and objective evidence outside of their history books (and outside of human testimony) that shows these events happened. Then an outsider that isn't from the US, Vietnam, nor China, would know this war exist without referring to a history book because of more concrete evidence.

    So, all of what you say, what is outside of scripture that shows the nature of the antichrist (and is there another word for it that maybe humans are going by they don't know?)? If it's the wars going on today, how can we detect its an unseen force or being without referring to the bible? I mean, Vietnam war wasn't caused by an antichrist. Don't think communism has to do with the antichrist-well, for many people. ;) no.

    Do you believe he is? I knew what he was saying, and he answered my post with exactly what I expected. You can see here:

    You don't find this amazing that they are the only right ones, that the true church was gone from the earth for a couple thousand years but was restored in the early 1900's America, and that you have the amazing fortune that they had the only truth? Do you honestly believe God is that shoddy a communicator that it took a group of religious folks during the time in American history where every other small startup cult at that time was all claiming they had the restored truth, to just miraculously got the right answer, just like Joseph Smith, did, the 7th Day Adventists did, the pentecostals did, and on and on the list goes? The JWs were just another flavor of the day, and still is.

    You may want to consider the odds, and the common sense behind that sort of scenario.

    But it's men who taught you, isn't it? Other's teach different things, and they all claim it's Jesus teaching them. How do you or anyone claim it's Jesus words, when you're all citing them from your own points of view? You think you're somehow not doing the exact same thing?

    Other people see it as not agreeing with the cult leaders' points of view on what is being said, amongst a host of other things. "Refusal" is not the right word. Disagree is.

    You're very new to this, aren't you?

    Not even for a minute. Unfortunately it's sometimes hard to read sarcasm in writing.

    Oh not at all! I am just amazed and inspired when we find something statistically impossible to actually come true! I'm telling you, Americans are so lucky to have the right restored church happen on our shores, and just a little over a hundred years ago that our own grandparents could be there to witness it, and to convert all their neighbor's to Jesus' restored church! These are blessed times! Blessed indeed!
