I get it
They are political neutral


Who's making these rules? Sounds kind of like a cult to me. No offense.


Don't know Im not a JW.
I mean their are certain things about citizenship and being apart of the state that sounds cult like to me .
But ppl pay no mind to it since we've been doing it so long.

Okay I can understand the first three rules which are impled from the ten commandments, but the others? No. 

But them making up stuff doesn't make them any different from most religions, honestly.

Not much difference between cult and religion tbh. A cult just isn't widely accepted

When I say cult I mean they are not getting their directives specifically from a sacred text but that it's been made up recently by one or a few people. They aren't the only modern religion that can be considered a cult. Seventh Day Adventists follow the writings of Ellen G White as if they are doctrine so they could be considered a cult as well.

We aren't a cult, and our teachings arent made up. We don't follow a person, we follow and live by gods laws which are laid out in the bible. So we believe in the bible, god, and Jesus.

the same for most of christianity. all of the bible is interpretation which is why i give most religions a side eye. /shrugs/

i will say everything jw's do is rooted in some scripture which is why i don't understand when ppl say they don't use the bible. have you ever been a to a jw meeting? it's all the bible, all the time. your bible is in high rotation.

That would be an interesting thread. Is religion a cult ? But its BHM and it would get ugly by page 2. :(

Once u stop caring about what others do life becomes easier.

She didn't say that God said don't vote.
It's their interpretation of what was written.
