Anonymous asked: Can I ask you a question about your religion? Is it a sin to commit suicide? Will they not inherent gods kingdom?
There isn’t a particular scripture that says but Jehovah knows that persons heart. as a imperfect world and imperfect people sometimes life can become to much and some in order to escape they commit suicide I know I myself have contemplated suicide but sometimes you have someone who has been raped repeatedly or assaulted or just cant take life anymore Jehovah knows why and no one can ever say that they will not be welcome back. So honestly i cant tell you a yes or a no but the loving forgiving merciful God Jehovah knows.But the bible doesnt say it is a sin . no where in the bible it does. We have website however JW org and there is a watchtower “Why Go On? Three reasons to keep living” Go check it out. I know its given me hope and many others.
Jesus told his followers to “make disciples of people of all the nations.” (Matthew 28:19, 20) When he sent out his early disciples, Jesus directed them to go to the homes of the people. (Matthew 10:7, 11-13) After Jesus’ death, first-century Christians continued to spread their message both “publicly and from house to house.” (Acts 5:42; 20:20) We follow the example of those early Christians and find that the door-to-door ministry is a good way to reach people.
p.s I have gotten this question a lot because some people think its insane lol and annoying as well but this is the reason why Jehovah’s Witnesses go door to door and by any means of reaching people.
Myth: The reason why Jehovah’s Witnesses do not celebrate Easter is that they are not Christians.
Myth: You do not believe that Jesus was raised from the dead.
Myth: You do not care that your children miss out on the joy of the Easter holiday.
The Easter holiday celebration is not based on the Bible.
Jesus commanded that we commemorate his death, not his resurrection. We observe this Memorial each year on the anniversary of his death according to the Bible’s lunar calendar.—Luke 22:19, 20.
We believe that the origins of Easter customs, which come from ancient fertility rites, make Easter unacceptable to God. God requires that we give him “exclusive devotion,” and he is offended by worship that includes practices that he does not approve of.—Exodus 20:5; 1 Kings 18:21.
We believe that our decision to abstain from celebrating Easter is based firmly on the Bible, which encourages the use of “practical wisdom and thinking ability” rather than simply following human traditions. (Proverbs 3:21; Matthew 15:3) While we share our beliefs about Easter with others when asked, we also respect each person’s right to decide what he will do.—1 Peter 3:15.
