Jw.Org & Mormon.Org See something similar? Me too...
Good catch - I agree.
@Cofty, Aint it creepy?
Hey Anthony Morris is a good BYU Morman boy. Maybe they are in cahoots? Perhaps Warren Jeffs submits some of the work as a commuter Bethelite.
I am sure jws ripped it off like everything else
The two religions share a great deal in common. They both have their roots in Adventism and Miller, both have apparent links to the Masons(Joseph Smith confirmed Mason-Charles T. Russell very strong evidence for being a Mason), and both believe in a Jesus that is very different from Christian theology. They share many similar trates in indoctrination, thought blocking, and control techniques. They differ somewhat when it comes down to core beliefs such as Mormonology teaches a phyisical conception initiated between God and Mary, Jesus and Satan are brothers, 3 different heavens-Celestial(Which has a higher and lower level),Terrestial, and Telestial, Doctrine and Covenents section 132(polygamy doctrine), as well as they will become God's themselves, etc. They both believe in works based salvation and that one must belong to their religion to have any chance of salvation.
So yes it would not suprise how similar they are with their online presence. Although I think the LDS may have a slight advantage over the Watchtower when it comes to the internet. They make a little better use of it to mislead people and are not quite as archaic when it comes to modern technology. The net is still putting a damper on their activities though which is possitive but LDS seem to be the stronger of the two.
I don't see any "How to Masturbate" videos on the Mormon website.
Yikes! My last comment makes me begin to worry about myself.
"Billy, go to your room. The adults are trying to have a conversation here!"
I cannot believe the Find a Mormon search. It looks like a great way to pick up. If you do a search on Jehovah's Witness there are a whole range of people that converted from JW's to Mormons.
http://mormon.org/me/3MY6/Jay - My father and I joined the church of Jehovah's Witnesses when I was 13 years old. I was a very active member of that church and read my scriptures daily. As I matured, I began to have many questions that could not be answered by members of that church. I was told to "go on faith" that what they were teaching me was true. My biggest question was after reading the Old Testament and learning all about the prophets that led God's people. There were always prophets to guide the people...Why don't we have a Prophet today? I decided that I needed to find answers elsewhere.
http://mormon.org/me/7VDG/Jessa - I had always struggled with what I need spiritually, at 15 I became a very active Jehovah's Witness. At 19, I questioned things and began my search for the true church elsewhere. I talk to many pastors of different with religions and as I studied on my own reading just the Bible I knew they were wrong. I remember being in the car with my husband and told him I want to Book of Mormon, just to read with an open mind "Just to see what it's about".
http://mormon.org/me/9MW3/Maggie - I was a Jehovah's Witness my entire life until I was 18. Bryan was a Nondenominational Christian. Being Mormon filled in the gaps in our faith and brought us closer together.
http://mormon.org/me/7ZKR/Briana - I was raised in a very strict Jehovah's Witness home until I was kicked out at 17, then left that religion. I didn't have much structure in my life. I smoked, drank extreme amounts daily, had foul language, and no real morals. But my life changed dramatically at 27 when I met the Missionaries!
http://mormon.org/me/446R/Judson - I was raised Jehovah's Witness and when I was young I had a very strong love for God. That love was shaken when I was ten years old. My mother died in a car accident. I didn't understand why someone of such love and beauty could be forsaken like I thought she was. I eventually blamed God for her death and for the sadness and loneliness that followed. For most of my life, I was Agnostic.
http://mormon.org/me/7JPS/Kim - Years before I joined the church I was a Jehovah's Witness. I really believed many of their teachings. I felt it strongly. There were things missing though. As I saw others in my church say they had a deep connection with God and Jesus I didn't have that. I felt that I was broken, that I was not able to have that "connection" with God like others did. So, I left and never looked back. 7 years passed and I got married and had children. My husband didn't practice any particular religion - grew up Catholic, but didn't go to church. We both felt the need to raise our kids with a spiritual background of some sort. Of course, neither of us could agree which. We did the church-hopping for some time and kinda gave up. I was invited to a wedding at the "Mormon Church" and figured I'd see what it was all about. When I walked in those doors I had this feeling that I was "home." I never felt that feeling before.
http://mormon.org/me/4F1J/Naomi - I was dating an LDS guy. He was inactive at the time but we had many religious conversations and many questions for each other as I was a Jehovah's Witness. We separated for a bit so I could help my sick mother. During our separation my boyfriend decided to start going to church again. I was very angry. I decided to go to his church so I could learn more in order to prove him wrong.
http://mormon.org/me/5J3J/Edward - I am a father of a little girl, and a husband to a wonderful Woman. I was born into a strong Jehovah's Witness family. I joined there church at 19 years old and served in Missionary Work off and on for 10 years in the area I lived in. And was taught to Study the word of God alot. I was taught to teach people, that started at about 2 or 3 years out. As I got older I was taught how to teach more indepth. I was a Baptized Jehovah's Witness from 19 to age 31, and leave behind 2 parents, 2 Sisters, and there Kids, as there rule states that they can not talk to me anymore.
http://mormon.org/me/7HJ5/Kamiryn - I joined the church almost 2 years ago (March 2010) at the age of 16, I am the only member in my family. I live with my grandparents, one is a Jehovah's Witness, the other an Atheist-- so you can only imagine how thrilled they were when I cam home and said, I Want To Be A Mormon!!! It was rough. from the day I told the Elders I wanted to be baptized to the day i was baptized 2 weeks later... Satan threw every little thing he could in my path, but I knew what i was doing was right, that this is the ONLY true church, and that it was where i was supposed to be.
http://mormon.org/me/9CXB/Erik - I began, at 18 years old, to question faith and devotion. It led me to the southern baptist faith, the church of christ, the Jehovah's Witnesses, and a few others in less detail. Many strong debates and fervent study of the scriptures and histories of the church prepared my mind for the restored church. My prayers and the patient example of members allowed me to see the wonderful path in front of me. I strive to grasp firmly the iron rod and endure to the end leading to the precious gift of exaltation.
It doesn’t surprise me that WT copied the Mormons in the way they designed their (JW) website. After all, WT copied the Mormon Church recently when they started up ‘Family Worship Night’.
