Are Jehovah's Witnesses "Blameless", not causing ANY harm?
“The upright are the ones that will reside in the earth, and the blameless are the ones that will be left over in it.” (Proverbs 2:21)
“They [the blameless] will not do any harm or cause any ruin in all my holy mountain; because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah as the waters are covering the very sea.”—Isaiah 11:9.
Do Jehovah's Witnesses fit this description, from the leaders on down to the rank and file?
Are they blameless, not causing any harm?
Why do they believe it is they alone who will be "left over" on the earth?
J.B. we are trying to help them to believe in the Bible Jesus...that is the problem, they don't know who He is....yet.
Thank you Cary, that is why ex-witnesses for Jesus are warning people about false prophets, like Jehovah's Witnesses...you cannot gain salvation through any organization, as the Watchtower falsely claims.
Thank you Angela!
Blamed as a group because they believe every word coming from Joseph Rutherfords mouth that are in error and different that the Bible's message.
Blamed for turning their eyes when their children were being molested by elders and pedophiles who were protected by the Watchtower Corporation.
Blamed for defending the false prophesies and wicked false New World Translation of the Bible, by a "scholar", "Johannes Greber".
Blamed for going door to door bringing a different Gospel than the Bible Gospel.
Blamed for allowing themselves to be polluted by false stories of Jesus being an angel, and His body dissolving in the tomb.
Blamed for not "Making sure of all things", because they were told that they didn't need to.
Blamed for learning hatred of neighbor, when Jesus commanded to 'Love their enemy".
Blamed for believing a false blood law, made-up by men, and changing year to year, while many die for one interpretation of belief,
then they are allowed "fractions" that would have allowed those dead ones to live now.
Jehovah's Witnesses are blamed for believing made up stories about Jesus and His Father that are proven lies.
Yes, now they are Blamed, but they can be forgiven, if they will ask God for courage to question the Watchtower about Jesus, and the true history of the Watchtower, Beth-Sarim, Beth Shan, Rand-Cam, Phillip Morris, Malawi, Mexico, shunning, control of their clothing and grooming choices, and most of all, to be free in their right to develop their beliefs, proven by Bible scriptures, not the whims of men.
And Angela..one other thing...no, they do not participate in wars...they contribute to them. Small countries are inundated with literature that besmirches and belittles the authority of their governments, and puts uneducated and unlearned, and illiterate people in the crosshairs of the Watchtower's publishing company, and it's need to gain members, and sympathy, by creating persecution for them.
Someday they will see what the Watchtower has really been doing under the guise of preaching the kingdom.
Thank you Terra...they are in fear of the revealing work you are doing. They have a gang mentality, and a lack of real Christian love. They accuse individuals here instead of answering their poignant questions. I read one from Zebra, where she even attacks your health issues. Ye, the hatred is real, and it will grow like gangrene among them...they are leprous in their appearance, whitewashed with the memory of their slain companions, who died for every false teaching of the watchtower, and rejected the true power of god through jesus. Stay strong little sister...God is showing His strength through
the "refuse of the world"...like you and mw, thrown away and used by them, until we discovered what they really are...wolves in sheep's clothing. Stay strong in Jesus.

Abosoultely not! Their teachings have caused much harm over the decades.
Persons have died because of refusing organ transplants, vaccinations and blood transfusions - all in obedience to JW teachings past and present.
Many families have been negatively affected by JWs avoiding association with non-JW family members and shunning ex-JW family members who sometimes commit suicide as a result - all in obedience to JW teachings at present.
These are just two examples highlighting how the religion can cause harm.

Joining with other religions not God's way-Eph:4:4-6 Mt. 7:13-14 Warned that false doctrine contaminates. Mt. 16:6, 12 Gal. 5:9 Commanded to be separate. 2 Tim. 3:5; 2 Co. 6:14-17; Re. 18:4. Some have zeal but not in accord with God-Romans 10:2-3; False teachers bring destruction-2 Peter 2:1, Mt. 12:30; 15:14. God's people never mix with other religions. Whether they were Hebrew,Jew, or Gentiles. There has never been more than one way. Cramped is the path and few find it.

Blameless...as a group, yes because they do not participate in man's wars. Blameless...as a group because they preach the Word of God as Jesus commanded. Blameless...as a group because they do not participate in pagen celebrations (which abhor our Great Loving God). Blameless...as a group because they teach from the Bible and are encouraged not to follow any man's teaching. Blameless...as a group because they are admonished to LOVE thy Neighbor as oneself and try to live a life of selflessness (not selfishness which is the equivilent to EVIL). JW know who Jesus is and know that the only way to approach Jehovah is through Jesus. JW know that one can not gain salvation solely on membership in the organization. Just as with any religious organizations today there are many wolves in sheep's clothing...

Do not judge the religious functions of any Christian worshipping group. Just thank God that they believe in Jesus, and do not kill like crazy cult members.
