Hate campaign against Jehovah's Witnesses - why?
Thursday, August 10, 2006
I would like to address some of the readers comments you have been publishing on this site containing blatant lies and baselessly accusing Jehovah's Witnesses.
Witnesses just ignore comments like these because the Bible instructs them to, as you can see on scriptures such as Titus 3:9,10 "But shun foolish questionings and genealogies and strife and fights over the Law, for they are unprofitable and futile. 10 As for a man that promotes a sect, reject him after a first and a second admonition; 11 knowing that such a man has been turned out of the way and is sinning, he being self-condemned".
These people have been disfellowshipped because of apostasy (promoting a sect) and/or gross sins, following the Bible's command to "Remove the wicked from among yourselves." - 1 Corinthians 5:13 Instead of humbling themselves and repenting, they have developed a strong hatred for the organization. Thus, they spend countless hours spreading lies on the Internet.
Now, let me get back to the issue at hand. The first guy's main idea on his comment was this: "But they don't realize that what the Bible says about blood is not the real reason why they refuse blood transfusions."
The reason he says, is because the organization has pointed out a Bible command to "abstain from blood". Do you see any problem with this? Neither do I.
The second person I believe has gone insane and just pasted the same junk he's been pasting on message boards for years. I believe he now has a Google alert on the word "Jehovah". Anytime a new article mentions that word, you'll see his baseless rumblings on the news commentary section. Many Jehovah's Witnesses just ignore his comments for it is "unprofitable and futile" to speak with apostates.
On the bright side, the constant hate campaign that's going on on the Iinternet arouses a thinking person's interest as to why such lies are being thrown at this organization. Many go to watchtower.org or talk to a Jehovah's Witness in person and quickly come to find out what they read on the Internet is far from the truth.
