Many people believe that Jesus was a true historical figure that doesn't mean they believe that Jesus is their personal Savior. Simply believing He existed doesn't make one a Christian. I maintain that jw's in general have no real need for Jesus as a Savior due to the fact that in general they don't believe they are sinners on a daily basis. Of every jw I have asked if Jesus is their personal Savior they cannot answer and get a deer in the headlights look, they don't understand the question.
How I am not cut from the same cloth as the jw's-
I do not condone and help hide pedophiles, nor would I
I will/would not require suicide or letting my child/family member die due to lack of blood because of some goofy interpretation of mere men
I do not believe one must adhere to my personal beliefs for their salvation
I do not require people say a magical word for God for their salvation
I do not tell people what they must or must not wear for their salvation
I do not require people to go door to door with my personal beliefs and keep track of their time doing so. I do not spend my time greedily thinking of what house I will get (after an elder chooses his first naturally) when the big A hits
I will not shun people simply because their spiritual journey is different than mine
I do not/will not shun my children/parents/family because they have different beliefs and/or lifestyles
I do not look forward to a day in which 99% of the population is destroyed and the birds will help me and my ilk to help clean up all the dead bodies
I do not require people to have the same belief system as myself to consider them 'good association'
I do not tell people how to vote or even if they can
I do not tell married people how they should behave in their own bedroom
I do not keep asking for money in slippery ways then brag how I never ask for money. I work for my money.
I do believe all groups religious or otherwise should be able to stand up to scrutiny and by telling people NOT to look into them or say that everybody lies about them should be a huge red flag
I do not believe asking questions should make one a heretic or apostate (choose the word you like)
shall I go on? the list is quite large
The fact that most people do not consider jw's as Christian is hardly a fault of mine, I have not been the one thumping on people's doors for over 100 years and still nobody knows what the heck their message is.
