What is the wackiest or strangest teaching that Witnesses adhere to?
I'm with you SafeAtHome: "Be careful what records you buy at Record Stores because they may have demons attatched to them, oh & don't play them backwards either". Complete B$!!
That everyone living except Jehovahs Witnesses will die in a global judgement.
That 95 % of Gods word is about fear and punishement and then they say "God is Love."
Millie, perhaps that was their old understanding? Cos their current understanding is "It is not for us to judge who is saved & who is not"
That the Great Pyramid of Giza is a stone witness to the Creator.
perhaps they don't believe that anymore.
I will have to check.
Oh I don't know let me think...
How about that a set of rotating 7-9 body of men in their 60's plus have the exclusive rights to interpretation of scripture which you must adhere to for the sake of unity and your own salvation, while also reserving the right to be completely wrong about any particular interpretation at any time under the guise of being humbly corrected by the holy spirit.....all the while threatening shunning for those percieved as being against the congregation.
Just off the top of my head.
Not the wackiest, but I also found the belief that there would be no marriage in paradise to be pretty absurd...
That they have the truth and have been chosen by Jesus in whenever..
I do not even know where to start.
- Jesus rules for 100 years or since 1914
- Jesus selected Rutherford and his pack of crazies as a bride in 1918/1919
- Revelation's trumphets are unimportant district assemblies held in 1920's in USA
- New light replaces the old light
- Blood transfussion
- If woman did not scream during rape, she was compliant
- Borg is only God's channel with humanity
That they're not a cult!
....oh, and you can 'buy' salvation by putting hours on a slip of paper.
