    While I was a JW, I used to wonder why TRUTH, the most important message from the most high, is banned in so many countries. China, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, North Korea and so on..... Why cant Jah lift the ban on those countries ?

    I used to inquire about this to the JW friends back then who would say that Jah would lift the ban in the appropriate time. But when... Why does he wait so long ? Also some Dubs would say that Jah is spreading the Truth in those countries through the internet. But I used to wonder Why such sneaky ways ? Why cant the Almighty just send an angel to those countries rulers and just order them to lift the Ban. Isn’t this possible by the Almighty ?

    According to JW, the Truth died out in the first century and was resurrected 1875 years by CT Russell. Already this was late by 1875 years. Again, since then, the Truth is banned still in so many countries. Have you people ever thought about this... Comments and thoughts please.

    It's not the WTS specifically but religion that evangelize, non-Muslim religions, and countries that are anti-religion in general like China.

    china aint that anti-religion, they just want to keep it separate from the state. local differences may apply. in case of the JWs the fact that i'ts a religion controlled by some american corporation doesn't really help the cause i guess. in addition to that, popular chinese religions like confucianism and daoism, partially also buddhism don't really need a god or worshipping a god.

    Why would a country be upset by this religion telling them their country is going to be destroyed and taken over by JWs

    I think in Russia it was because of the shunning and breaking up families, etc. which the society likes to say is a lie but we all know is true.

    Might be because this supposed "Truth" comes from only men who are both ignorant and corrupt

    toward their own self agenda, a deity such as Yahweh has no connection to these men whatsoever.

    That in reality is the "Truth"

    China is still an atheistic state and is only more tolerant because of wanting a better standing in the international community.


    China’s five main recognized religions – Buddhism, Protestantism, Catholicism, Islam and Taoism.


    Main article: Protestantism in China

    The Three-Self Patriotic Movement, National Committee of the Three-Self Patriotic Movement of the Protestant Churches in China; the Three-Self Church) or "TSPM" is the government-sanctioned ("patriotic") Christian organization in China. Known in combination with the China Christian Council as the lianghui, they form the only state-sanctioned ("registered") Protestant church in mainland China. All other Protestant denominations are illegal.

    Chinese house churches are a religious movement of unregistered assemblies of Christians in China, which operate independently of the government-run Three-Self Patriotic Movement (TSPM) and China Christian Council (CCC) for Protestant groups and the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association (CCPA) and the Chinese Catholic Bishops Council (CCBC) for Catholics. They are also known as the "Underground" Church or the "Unofficial" Church, although this is somewhat of a misnomer as they are collections of unrelated individual churches rather than a single unified church. They are called "house churches" because as they are not officially registered organizations, they cannot independently own property and hence they meet in private houses, often in secret for fear of arrest or imprisonment. [ 10 ]

    Churches must be associated with one of the five, government sanctioned.

    You can stop calling it the "truth" because it isn't. They call themselves that.

    The reason the religion has problems in so many countries is because they encourage their followers to not be in the army, not to vote, not to pursue higher education, not to get involved in the community, be dependent on charity because of not getting skills, breaking up families over allegiance to the religion, encouraging their followers to have a contemptuous attitude towards the government, etc.

    These things may cause JWs to be perceived as undesirable or even subversive, depending on how some may look at it.

    WHY is TRUTH banned in so many countries?

    We could ask why truth is banned in the Watch Tower Society equally, could we not?

    Any leader in any country welcomes productive people who have a rich heritage and conversely want to discourage

    low-wage earners without talent totally into their thing who reject mainstream traditions.

    What the Watch Tower Society was from earliest times was an opinion decorated with scriptures.

    Each subsequent President of that organization blended newer and different opions.

    Of course, all of that was painted over with that word: truth.

    This religion subverts vested authority.

    By producing brain-dead drones peddling nonsense in the name of God, the Watch Tower does not produce good citizens of any country or nation.

    JW'S think they possess a ticket to paradise or heaven when all it is--is an excuse to hate everybody who isn't like them.

    Who needs that?

    JW's aren't smarter than anybody. The education level of the average JW with all of its superstition and insularity is no asset to any community.

    JW parents cannot be counted on to help out at schools, PTA, sports rallies, voting efforts, boy/girl scouts or charity drives.


    They are obnoxious in asserting how pious THEY are while condemning everybody else's religious views.

    Historically, while other families in the neighborhood sent sons off to defend against Nazis or terrorists, the Witness family sends their home-schooled

    brats out to defame the nation, the churches, the flag and the sacrifice of others on their behalf.

    JW's are ungrateful, self-righteous, smug, low-earning drags on the economy, the social solidarity of a nation and disgrace to the traditional nature of Christianity as a whole.

    So, please, ask me again why is the TRUTH banned in so many countries.

    Hey - look at what real Christian missionaries have been doing with their time! ^^^

    The wt is a fairly young American sect/religion, so in every foreign country where Witnesses are found, others have made the inroads. wt hasn't blazed any new trails, just conveniently used the ways others paved with their own blood, sweat and tears.

    The reason they have trouble getting established as a 'religion' in many foreign lands is because - it's a freakin' anti-Christ CULT, pure and simple.
