Complaining about church leaders: That's a tricky area. We should not speak ill of the Lord's anointed or gossip, but we have to be aware of evil that goes on, too.
Blood transfusions: No, it is not true. "Greater love hath no man that this, that he lay down his life for his friends."
Shunning: No. That is not true, either. We must continue to love all of God's children equally. We should only avoid people who are likely to involve us in their sins or heresies. We should still be good to them, though.

Meanwhile you have some answers and some call JW's a cult.
Just let me reason with you for a minute. If you want your appendix taken out would you go to an auto mechanic? or a dentist? of course not. Lol so it is with religions. why not go to the source. if I want to know about Catholics I ask someone who practices the catholic religion and if I want to learn about Islam I ask a practicing Muslim Most likely I will get the correct answers right?
So when people use the word cult, the usually think about a religious group with radical views and practices that clash with what is widely accepted by society. They follow a self proclaimed human leader and are usually unconditionally devoted to these.
Jehovah's Witnesses do not by any means fall under this category. Jehovah's Witnesses are Christians and their leader is Jesus Christ. They witness for their God Jehovah according to the command by Jesus himself to go and preach the good news Read Isaiah 43:10-12 and John 28:19,20
JW's don't have any secrets and they teach according to God's word the bible.
If you really want to find out about murmuring and disfellowshipping please take the time and find out why check out the website www.jw.org you will be surprised about all you can learn there if you don't like the website just simply click out. there is no sign up for it I hope you will enjoy . ,

It is not just Jehovah's Witnesses ( as I am one), who say murmuring is a sin; most people would agree with that, since it can lead to a lot of mental anguish; especially if unfounded.
As for blood. Well, it is sacred and any witness who decides to have a blood transfusion, due to pressure, if not repentant, then naturally it is worthy of being disfellowshipped.
If someone decides that they do not want to be a witness, then no, they are not shunned.

Nothing much that a cult tells you is true. Avoid religious cults completely for best results.

JWs are just a whacko offshoot of the larger whacko christian cult.
None of them are "right" about anything.
Go ahead -- ask them to prove what they claim.
Do it, I'd love to watch. Ask Bob, below me.

Beguiled Jehovah Witness believe:
That Jesus the Christ of Nazareth, the Messiah is inferior to God, which is contrary to John 1:1-18 and 1 Timothy 3:16 that proves Jesus is God.
Man does not have a spirit which is contrary to Gal 3:14.
That Jesus is the Archangel Michael, which is contrary to The Word of God (The Tree of Life, Light, Love, Wisdom, Understanding and Knowledge).
That Jesus second coming happened in 1914.
That we are to worship Jehovah only, which is contrary to John 1:1-14.
They believe that satan is the invisible ruler of the world; not true God rules over satan.
They believe that only 144,000 thousand go to heaven; again not true: John 3:16 tells us otherwise.
John 3:13-17 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
They believe that hell is mankind's common grave; not even close:
The place of eternal punishment for the unrighteous. The NKJV and KJV use this word to translate Sheol and Hades, the Old and New Testament words, respectively, for the abode of the dead.
Hell as a place of punishment translates Gehenna
, the Greek form of the Hebrew word that means "the vale of Hinnom"-a valley just south of Jerusalem. In this valley the Canaanites worshiped Baal and the fire-god Molech by sacrificing their children in a fire that burned continuously. Even Ahaz and Manasseh, kings of Judah, were guilty of this terrible, idolatrous practice (2 Chron 28:3; 33:6).
The prophet Jeremiah predicted that God would visit such destruction upon Jerusalem that this valley would be known as the "Valley of Slaughter" (Jer 7:31-34; 19:2,6). In his religious reforms, King Josiah put an end to this worship. He defiled the valley in order to make it unfit even for pagan worship (2 Kings 23:10).
In the time of Jesus the Valley of Hinnom was used as the garbage dump of Jerusalem. Into it were thrown all the filth and garbage of the city, including the dead bodies of animals and executed criminals. To consume all this, fires burned constantly. Maggots worked in the filth. When the wind blew from that direction over the city, its awfulness was quite evident. At night wild dogs howled and gnashed their teeth as they fought over the garbage.
Jesus used this awful scene as a symbol of hell. In effect he said, "Do you want to know what hell is like? Look at the valley of Gehenna." So hell may be described as God's "cosmic garbage dump." All that is unfit for heaven will be thrown into hell.
The word Gehenna occurs 12 times in the New Testament. Each time it is translated as "hell." With the exception of James 3:6, it is used only by Jesus (Matt 5:22,29-30; 10:28; 23:15,33; Mark 9:43,45,47; Luke 12:5). In Matt 5:22; 18:9; and Mark 9:47, it is used with "fire" as "hell fire." So the word hell (Gehenna) as a place of punishment is used in the New Testament by Him who is the essence of infinite love.
In Mark 9:46 and 48, hell is described as a place where "their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched." Repeatedly Jesus spoke of outer darkness and a furnace of fire, where there will be wailing, weeping, and gnashing of teeth (Matt 8:12; 13:42,50; 22:13; 24:51; 25:30; Luke 13:28). Obviously this picture is drawn from the valley of Gehenna
The Book of Revelation describes hell as "a lake of fire burning with brimstone" (Rev 19:20; 20:10,14-15; 21:8). Into hell will be thrown the beast and the false prophet (Rev 19:20). At the end of the age the devil himself will be thrown into it, along with death and hades and all whose names are not in the Book of Life. "And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever" (Rev 20:10 b).
Because of the symbolic nature of the language, some people question whether hell consists of actual fire. Such reasoning should bring no comfort to the lost. The reality is greater than the symbol. The Bible exhausts human language in describing heaven and hell. The former is more glorious, and the latter more terrible, than language can express.
They believe that the soul dies at death of the body; no, the soul is more than just the living essence of the body: The word soul also refers to the inner life of man, the seat of his emotions, and the center of human personality. The first use of the word soul in the Old Testament expresses this meaning: "And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being (soul)" (Gen 2:7). This means more than being given physical life; the biblical writer declares that man became a "living soul," or a person, a human being, one distinct from all other animals. The soul is described as the seat of many emotions and desires: the desire for food (Deut 12:20-21), love (Song 1:7), longing for God (Ps 63:1), rejoicing (Ps 86:4), knowing (Ps 139:14), and memory (Lam 3:20). In the New Testament, Jesus spoke of his soul as being "exceedingly sorrowful" (Matt 26:38). Mary, the mother of Jesus, proclaimed that her soul "magnifies the Lord" (Luke 1:46). John prayed that Gaius would "prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers" (3 John 2).
They believe that only God approves those to be saved.
They believe that the Earth will never be destroyed or depopulated. Wrong, Rev 21:1-2
1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
They believe that Jesus died for only the obedient. Not true for we have all sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God.
They also believe that Jesus is inferior to God and do not believe in the Trinity. Yet Jesus said: “Matt 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”
