    Bane, XPX, JwGood (the 3 are 1 Trinity),

    Quit mixing in company with anyone called a brother that is a fornicator or a greedy person . . . not even eating (or chatting online) with such a man."--1 Corinthians 5:11

    Bane, XPX, JwGood (the 3 are 1 Trinity),

    So you think being in favour of BANE makes me a JW.

    So True:- But we think it proper to hear from you what your thoughts are, for truly as regards this sect it is known to us that everywhere it is spoken against.” (Acts 28:22)

    And now you'll accuse me of being a SHILL.

    Acts 28
    Ashore on Malta

    1 Once safely on shore, we found out that the island was called Malta. 2 The islanders showed us unusual kindness. They built a fire and welcomed us all because it was raining and cold. 3 Paul gathered a pile of brushwood and, as he put it on the fire, a viper, driven out by the heat, fastened itself on his hand. 4 When the islanders saw the snake hanging from his hand, they said to each other, "This man must be a murderer; for though he escaped from the sea, Justice has not allowed him to live." 5 But Paul shook the snake off into the fire and suffered no ill effects. 6 The people expected him to swell up or suddenly fall dead, but after waiting a long time and seeing nothing unusual happen to him, they changed their minds and said he was a god.

    7 There was an estate nearby that belonged to Publius, the chief official of the island. He welcomed us to his home and for three days entertained us hospitably. 8 His father was sick in bed, suffering from fever and dysentery. Paul went in to see him and, after prayer, placed his hands on him and healed him. 9 When this had happened, the rest of the sick on the island came and were cured. 10 They honored us in many ways and when we were ready to sail, they furnished us with the supplies we needed.

    Arrival at Rome

    11 After three months we put out to sea in a ship that had wintered in the island. It was an Alexandrian ship with the figurehead of the twin gods Castor and Pollux. 12 We put in at Syracuse and stayed there three days. 13 From there we set sail and arrived at Rhegium. The next day the south wind came up, and on the following day we reached Puteoli. 14 There we found some brothers who invited us to spend a week with them. And so we came to Rome. 15 The brothers there had heard that we were coming, and they traveled as far as the Forum of Appius and the Three Taverns to meet us. At the sight of these men Paul thanked God and was encouraged. 16 When we got to Rome, Paul was allowed to live by himself, with a soldier to guard him.

    Paul Preaches at Rome Under Guard

    17 Three days later he called together the leaders of the Jews. When they had assembled, Paul said to them: "My brothers, although I have done nothing against our people or against the customs of our ancestors, I was arrested in Jerusalem and handed over to the Romans. 18 They examined me and wanted to release me, because I was not guilty of any crime deserving death. 19 But when the Jews objected, I was compelled to appeal to Caesar—not that I had any charge to bring against my own people. 20 For this reason I have asked to see you and talk with you. It is because of the hope of Israel that I am bound with this chain."

    21 They replied, "We have not received any letters from Judea concerning you, and none of the brothers who have come from there has reported or said anything bad about you. 22 But we want to hear what your views are, for we know that people everywhere are talking against this sect."

    23 They arranged to meet Paul on a certain day, and came in even larger numbers to the place where he was staying. From morning till evening he explained and declared to them the kingdom of God and tried to convince them about Jesus from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets. 24 Some were convinced by what he said, but others would not believe. 25 They disagreed among themselves and began to leave after Paul had made this final statement: "The Holy Spirit spoke the truth to your forefathers when he said through Isaiah the prophet:
    26 " 'Go to this people and say,
    "You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
    you will be ever seeing but never perceiving."
    27 For this people's heart has become calloused;
    they hardly hear with their ears,
    and they have closed their eyes.
    Otherwise they might see with their eyes, #B
    hear with their ears,
    understand with their hearts
    and turn, and I would heal them.'
    [ a ]

    28 "Therefore I want you to know that God's salvation has been sent to the Gentiles, and they will listen!" [ b ]

    30 For two whole years Paul stayed there in his own rented house and welcomed all who came to see him. 31 Boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.

    No where in that scripture do I see any reference to jehovah's witnesses.

    If JW's do not belong to the sect? Then who does?

    From morning till evening he explained and declared to them the kingdom of God

    Boldly and without hindrance he preached the kingdom of God

    May be you read this. Are you doing it?

    For all of you:- I am not a JW, but a member of an NGO. Have a close friend who is an active JW. Preparing a project on them. Sad to see the bias over here.

    JWGood, JWs do not declare the kingdom of God. They declare joining their org as the way to be pleasing to God, with a whole lot of false prophecies along the way. Many Christians are decalring God's kingdom. JWs are the only group who count their hours doing it- and their message being a false one on top of it.

    Preparing a project on them.

    Perhaps you need to do some deep research. You seem to have only surface knowledge.
