Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Feel That They Are the Only People Who Will Be Saved?
No. Many millions who lived in centuries past and who weren’t Jehovah’s Witnesses will have an opportunity for salvation. The Bible explains that in God’s promised new world, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15) Additionally, many now living may yet begin to serve God, and they too will gain salvation. In any case, it’s not our job to judge who will or won’t be saved. That assignment rests squarely in Jesus’ hands.—John 5:22, 27.
Really?!? Notice this gem from the 12/15/2014 WT, page 30, paragraph 15. This GB approved statement reads:" Only about 1in every 1,000 people alive today has accurate knowledge of the truth, and you are one of them." (End quote) Here we have the assertion that only JWs know what the bible really says. Keep that in mind.
Let's back up a bit to page 29, paragraph 12. Notice that it says," How do I feel ( young ones being targeted ) about being among the relatively few on Earth today who are known by God? Do I appreciate..." Okay, so only a relatively few humans on earth are known by "God." So at this point we have:
1) Only JWs have accurate knowledge. ( This leads to life in JWism)
2) Only JWs are known by God. ( Question: When Jesus said," ..I never knew you!" What were the consequences?)
Now on to the final gem of wisdom from the collective Slave at HQ. Check out this very telling sentence from page 31, paragraph 16. Speaking of the all important issue of "doing the right thing" with a young life, it states," That is so much wiser than merely following the majority of youths who, as if in a stupor, march along with this world toward destruction." 😳
Don't be fooled. The FAQ section is a deceptive PR page that decieves the unwary. Do JWs really believe that only they will be saved? Yes, but they won't swear by it.
