I can understand how you feel. There are a lot of misconceptions about the Witnesses out there. I assure you, we are Christians, too. We base all of our beliefs firmly on the Bible, and, as you know, the Bible talks about Jesus in great detail. His ransom sacrifice is the only thing that allows us to be forgiven of our sins. And we strive to follow is example in our daily lives.

And Jehovah's Witnesses differ from the Mormons in many, many ways--including the fact that there is no Book of Jehovah's Witnesses like there is the Book of Mormon. (No offense to the Mormons; I'm merely pointing out how we differ.) Although we DO have publications such as the Watchtower and Awake! magazines, these are NOT our interpretations of what the Bible says or anything like that. They are simply study tools for people who want to learn about the Bible in detail. They provide factual evidence and bring up important historical points on a variety of topics to aid in understanding. They also do a lot of cross-referencing between different Bible passages to support the meaning of a particular scripture. In a nutshell, we don't add anything to our publications that isn't already in the Bible. After all, Revelation 22:18, 19 says, "If anyone makes an addition to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this scroll; and if anyone takes anything away from the words of the scroll of this prophecy, God will take his portion away from the trees of life." Meaning, anyone who adds to the Bible or takes away part of it will be severely punished and will not have God's approval.

Jehovah's Witnesses simply encourage people to turn to the Bible for answers, and encourage people to live by God's standards.

Mind if I ask, what specific Christian religion do yo belong to? And what beliefs that we don't agree on do you mean? ^_^ I'd be more than happy to explain why Jehovah's Witnesses believe what they believe. Our faith is NOT blind; we have reasons behind it. Because, like I said, all we're doing is turning to the Bible, and following EXACTLY what it says. Many Christian religions teach doctrines that are not actually found in the Bible, which is usually where these disagreements begin.

Actually since I was raised with my mom being agnostic (I guess?) and my dad being either atheist, agnostic, Buddhist, or a combination of those, I haven't really belonged to any denominations. I don't go to church yet but I'm leaning towards going to a non-denominational one.

Apparently JWs don't celebrate holidays? My aunt and uncle are JWs and I remember one year we didn't put up the Christmas tree because it was Thanksgiving (usually we do it on Thanksgiving) (this was at another relative's) and we had invited them and they came, and we didn't want to sort of celebrate another holiday with them there because we had already invited them to a get together for a holiday they didn't celebrate.

Also apparently JWs reject the Holy Trinity according to this page where more differences can be found. The Holy Trinity is a very important part of Christianity.

The page is http://www.religionfacts.com/jehovah...comparison.htm

I mean I just don't agree with things like not celebrating holidays and not believing in the Holy Trinity, but we're all welcome to our own beliefs.

(By the way if you don't want to call me blossom my name is Belle haha)

Also on an unrelated note woah ok so my brother has speech problems like a stutter and he can't pronounce his r's still and there was this kid who told him he "talks stupid" and hhh people are rude.

I Also Have To Wear My Hair Up, Which Freakin' Sucks If You Are Me Because My Hair Does Not Stay In A Bun And The Way It Feels Right Now Makes Me Want To Cry/kill Someone. So Expect A Rant About How Not Bad This Class Is Gonna Be, But As Of Right Now I Have No Idea What To Do And Why I Agreed To This. I'm Not Even On Pointe Shoes Because I Love Dancing But Not As A Professional. I'll Be Stuck With Little Kids To; They'll Probably Do Way Better Than Me. I Have Like No Time To Study The Positions And Stuff And My Flexibility Kinda Disappears During The Summer Time So I Have No Idea Why The Heck I Wanted To Do This. I'm Gonna Lose It.
I've been thinking more lately about doing ballet, and it sounds fun. I mean I've been in the same position as being with younger kids like for camp (not ballet or dance camp) and it's awkward. Also my hair does the frizzy thing when I put it up so I have all these random strands of hair sticking up or like cowlicks doing their thing. But ballet sounds super fun!! Have fun! And I don't know much about pointe shoes and foot stuff but be careful if you don't have the right shoes bc then probably you won't be able to put the wood in them and you may hurt your toes. Have an awesome time though!

I did. I had a mental breakdown. I cry too much. Anyways, right now I could really use a headache pill and a pizza. And maybe that video game my little sister has. yeah...a good pizza and a good video game.

Did I mention that I'm gonna do this tomorrow too?

I'm so sorry you feel like this.
Nobody cries too much.
They just vent too little.
Stay positive, happy, and fun.

oh no! i'm sorry. advice- if you have a headache it isn't a good idea to play a video game, that could make it worse. maybe wait until the headache goes away, then play it?




stay strong, you guys!

Like I'm havin a lot of ups and downs but this week has been mostly up bc of marching band!! Let me tell you I love marching band bc it has almost all the people I love the most and I just feel so accepted ! It's so exciting for me! This week is band camp which is 5 days of 12 hour long band practices and even tho it's exhausting I actually rly like it! This morning I was p depressed (when I couldn't get proper technique I like ran to the bathroom and cried for 15 minutes lmao) but it got a lot better bc the girl I rly like (trying to decide which kinda like) kept putting her head on my shoulder and hugging my arm and holding my hand and then my upperclassmen girl friend took me to culvers with some other upperclassmen and it was rly rly great!!! And this might be rly bad but on the drive back to my house my upperclassman girl friend promised she would get me high which I've rly wanted to do for a while?? So imma make sure that's ok w my brother bc he said not to get high until I was a junior but it's like??? I rly wanna do it?? And yea it was rly great I'm gonna lose weight and dye and cut my hair and look slammin and kill it hell yea positivity!!!!
THIS IS LATE but please don't do drugs in any way please please please not now not when you're a junior; no matter how careful you are you could still get addicted and it could still be dangerous especially if you don't trust your source(s) 100%! just please don't it's a bad idea and it's wrong and just don't i want you to be safe pal and that is unsafe

but for everything else yes go be positive!!! be happy!!
