What’s The Strangest Belief of Jehovah’s Witnesses?

    I think a lot of what they teach is pure crap. Strange? Stupid things, like objects being possessed by demons, having a problem with saying Bless you after sneezing, covering up for child molesters, expecting abused children to get two witnesses to their being molested, having "question and answer" sessions in their meetings where both the questions and the answers come from them.

    Just to name a few.

    I agree, there are so many of their teachings which are strangely exclusive.

    One that I never believed is that the WTB&TS is God's chosen earthly organization.

    Another that I never believed is that only Jws will be "saved" and all others are doomed to eternal destruction.

    Actually, I wasn't alone. I knew other witnesses who doubted those teachings as well. Back when the thinking ability of most witnesses wasn't as strongly controlled and discouraged as it has become nowadays.

    Christ's return 1874, 1914 Jesus himself said he doesn't know of the time and admonished his followers to not set a time upon god's own sacred time, yet the WTS leaders went about doing just that, therefore making the WTS leaders apostates against Christianity and Jehovah.

    Well the trumpet blasts being obscure meejngs of a few people in Cedar point, Ohio, and London being the one that was "locust like" with people arriving from everywhere!!

    Jesus being Micheal the Arc Angel when God clearly states that "no Angel has ever called me father".

    1914 being a total con just because ww1 started. Many people have also said that it is very difficult to work the whole thing out since the calendars have changed. Are years modern 365 day years or 360 day years? Are months Hebrew lunar months or solar months?

    The absurdity of no birthdays but the crazy obsession with wedding anniversaries. I always say Rutherford forgot to ban anniversaries since he didn't live with his wife he never celebrated them!!

    1. That Jesus is an archangel called Michael. Why? If Jesus is any sort of angel, then Hebrews 1 makes no sense at all. And that there is only one archangel in heaven?

    2. Reports. Are we not Christians 24/7. Are we not witnessing by example all the time? But if we stand on the street holding, up two magazines and being ignored by passers-by, and manage to do it for more than 50 hours, we are elevated to wear the Superman Costume and be kowtowed to as someone special.

    Did Jesus ever command that we report time in some target rich business model?

    Overlapping generation is so embarrassing they never talk about it in conversation, ever. Speaks for itself.

  • punkofnice

    Don't get me started! Over the years I've seen one weirdo belief replaced for another. SBF mentioned the 'overlapping generation™' That was what got me to totally wake up....finally.

    For me, their current weirdness is the trolley ('cart', if we in the UK still have to submit to WBT$ Americanisation of the language), 'work™'.

    This 'never to be 'repeated™' and 'urgent™' work. They just sit or stand there like squashed lemons. I asked one bunch of trolley dollys that didn't know me, what they talk about. I was expecting 'deep spiritual truths™', but instead got 'what to cook for dinner'. I appreciated that honest remark.....perhaps she was a PIMO.
