    Is it okay to express your love for Jesus as a Jehovah's witness?

    Not since the governing body elevated themselves to a position higher than Jesus.. JW's need to profess their looovve for the g.b.

    Sure, if you don't mind other Jehovah's Witnesses being super suspicious of you.

    Sea Breeze, yes you are right. And the scripture you quoted show it well.

    I wonder when the JWs will realize that one day they have to praise also Jesus for their salvation if they truely will be part of "the great crowd"? How ironic that "the great crowd" in Revelation 7:10 is said to praise not only God but also Jesus for their salvation. "And they keep shouting with a loud voice, saying: “Salvation we owe to our God, who is seated on the throne, and to the Lamb.”

    I'd go with this.

    Too much 'Jesus' talk in the JW ranks and suspicion will abound.

    .......and we can't have the Congregation Gossip(tm) (usually an Elder's wife who gets all the latest from him), turning her attention to a 'Jesus' lover.

    I don’t see how you could be criticised for it . After all they have studied how Jesus laid down his life for us. If I went and if I commented, then I would do so and make a spirited reply to anyone that questioned it.

    In my childhood we had an old brother who was what my wife would call “ one of the real anointed “. He was always speaking of “ The Lord “ as though he was close to him, and he did not mean Jehovah.

    In one of their training videos about how to handle an 'opposer' at a convention, they identify the 'bad guys' as the one with the "Jesus Saves" bumper sticker on his car.
