Is this summation of the JW preaching work fair?

    Coming to a leaflet, poster, sign or billboard in your neighbourhood soon:


    "If you consistently reject our message you will deserve the death our God brings upon you"


    "Come as you are and I will heal and transform you from within"

    Thanks nicolaou!

    Convert or die.

    you seem to forget that jesus himself only came to preach to jews. his own record in the gospels tell us more than once. so even if jesus does save, its only jews, paul preached to gentiles, but do you really think paul a dead man can help you ?

    Jehovah's Witnesses don't have a message. They have an alternate lifestyle.

    For persons put off by teachings of eternal torment they offer eternal sleep or a Paradise Earth.

    For christians disaffected by tepid sermons and rituals they offer a vital lifesaving field service ministry.

    In a world saturated in sex and exhibitionism, loud rude music and apathy they offer modesty of dress, cleanliness and worldwide family.

    They are seen by the world much the same way as the Amish only more modern.

    People find their teaching quaint or laughable but think they are sincere and eager for postive change.

    THIS IS A BRAND more than a religion.

    We here on JWn are obsessed with the details of doctrine and teaching. But, come on--smell the coffee!

    90% of "spiritual" people don't give a flying fudge bar about all that! Chapter and verse scripture quoting bores the hell out of them.

    If you put the way JW's come across in everyday life on one side and the rest of the world on the other side THEY LOOK BETTER!

    Think about that.

    Religious people are accustomed to background noise about Armageddon and the end of the world. It is blah blah blah.

    THE BRAND is scrubbed and friendly families knocking your door with a bible who are willing to die for God.

    The Devil is always in the details. But, in this world, nobody bothers with the details.

    And it's an impressive facade Terry. Should we pity the gullible fools who fall for this cult marketing without spending a little time and effort on research? What about the young children they bring along in their wake?

    These 'scrubbed and friendly families' should have their feet held to the fire.

    Yes, that is a fair summation.

    Also, I like your avatar.

    "If you consistently reject our message you will deserve the death our God brings upon you".

    Hardly since its was nothing but a marketing strategy (corrupt lie) to promote the proliferation the WTS. literature.

    Inciting fear is what the WTS did and is still doing today to lure people into their power and control and finally exploit them

    in the distribution of the WTS. published works.

    It was just a marketing strategy for this particular religious publishing house to take on for commercial reasons among others.
