Religion & Spiritualty: I've noticed that JWs do not address other Christians as "brother" or "sister" like they do each other. Why is that?

      NCWJ, you're wrong, the J/W translation of the Bible says that Jesus was is a god.

    They regard themselves as a 'family' of Christian 'brothers and sisters,' NON JW simply aren't regarded as part of that family or so called only true church of God on earth.

    They only do that if you get take the plunge and get baptized and even after some attempt to leave they still count them as members in some cases. There is a sadness here because you have to go through tests to be a member and then you have to answer questions before being added to the list and some leave because they do not want to be controlled by things that make them sad, like shunning and want to have opinions and feelings about things that are important to general society. Had a friend who was an active preacher and she did many good things for the world and she had to do her work in secret so she would not get kicked out & did things to help the veterans of war...

    JWs believe they are the only ones saved and that all of us are not Christians from other Churches but are of the Devil and going to hell. They won't even pray with any other folks who call themselves Christians other than those from JW cult.

    No, JW's do not like Christianity, which is why they separated from it.

    JWs overuse it to define themselves as separate from the Christians.

    It's common insular cult speak.

    Same reason they do not address us as brother or sister.

    They are Trinitarian. We are Christian. Two different religions.
