Comments: Witnesses are taught to believe that being associated with the Watchtower Organization is a mandatory requisite to be saved and to be able to live forever in the promised Paradise on Earth. The watchtower organization is considered as “the salvation ark”.
Comments: Witnesses must be baptized to be saved or actually be working towards to be baptized soon to have God’s approval and to survive Armageddon. Even though Jehovah’s Witnesses does not practice the baptism of infants as the Catholic Church does, many kids as young as 9 years old are accepted to be baptized and ordained as ministers of the religion. When a person is baptized as a Jehovah’s Witnesses, he/she needs to answer a formal and official question publicly with which they pledge unconditional allegiance and loyalty to their religious Organization. This is normally done during conventions in front an audience of thousands.
Comments: This is very similar with the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The word of the Governing Body is regarded by the Witnesses as God’s Will for them, and to challenge or question them is like challenge or question God himself. Every Witnesses must confess loyalty to the Governing Body so in that sense their commitment is stronger than ISIS’s. Jehovah’s Witnesses regard themselves as the only true Christian religion and everybody else is whether false Christian, pagan, or an unbeliever. None of those are saved unless accept and commit to the Witnesses message.
Comments: The Governing Body demands and expect obedience and submissiveness from every Jehovah’s Witness from all over the world and this is clearly stated all over their publications. Whoever does not obey is considered a rebel and an apostate. It does not matter if leaders are unfair, abusive, dangerous, or malicious; l they are just “imperfect” but still obedience must be given.
