I've been a lurker here for a while and whilst I've seen some pretty stupid comments and theories I never really decided to join. But, after
browsing this thread I've decided to! It's mostly due to the complete lack of knowledge and misinformation in this thread so I thought I'd clear
some things up - or at the very least try to.
I'll start off by saying that I am one of the Jehovah's Witnesses.
We don't think the UN will spearhead the 'NWO'. What we do believe is what is recorded in the book of Revelation. We believe that the United
Nations is the image of the wild beast as described in Revelation, and that beast will put an end to Religion (False Religion). It will completley
devestate the Harlot (False Religion) eating up her fleshy parts. Why? Because God puts that one thought into their hearts - again as descibed in
Revelation. Why? This has to do with the King of the North and the King of the South. The pushing of those kings and the 'disturbing reports' that
come 'out of the sunrising' that enrage the King of the North, which, in turn eventually leads to the ushering of God's Kingdom on Earth.
As far as 'False prophecies' go, we don't claim to be prophets and sure, there have been a few instances where some didn't completley understand
what the scriptures were saying or indicating but that has no relevance to what we actually teach. There are plentiful explanations and refutations on
the 'false prophecies', but I neither have the time or the patience right now. Perhaps sometime in the future, but what I will say is go read up,
read the Watchtower site, read the Proclaimers book. It's all threre, nothing is hidden.
And in regards to some members calling us a cult. I'm not even going to go there, idiocy and naivety at its finest.

If only 144,000 people are going to be saved, then every time they save someone, one of them is going to be unsaved. Does that make
That's the annointed class, the ones that will rule as joint heirs in God's Kingdom with Jesus Christ as King. Those who are not annointed make up
the Great Crowd, or other sheep.

Charles Taze Russel who was one of the founding members of the Jehovah's witnesses also predicted the world,as we know it, would end in October of
1914, that it would be the end of the time of the gentiles and that God would set up His kingdom on earth. They also believe that only their governing
body can interpret and apply scripture. Just throwing out a few facts.
C.T. Russell knew something of Great significance was going to take place in 1914.

You are completely aware that the JW's were part of the U.N for 10 years.... Right?!
Or is that what you would call JW espionage?
C'mon now. We're registered as an NGO.
