I am one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I am a Christian and I believe that the Bible is the Word of God. My goal is to glorify Jehovah God, stimulate more respect for his qualities and standards, and impart accurate Bible knowledge. I have found that living by God's standards is the most enjoyable and successful way of life. "Taste and see that Jehovah is good." (Psalm 34:8) I believe that God only wants what is best for his creation and that he knows what is best for us. "I, Jehovah, am your God, the One teaching you to benefit [yourself], the One causing you to tread in the way in which you should walk. O if only you would actually pay attention to my commandments! Then your peace would become just like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea." (Isaiah 48:17,18) All the answers I post are primarily Bible based, and appeal to it as the authority. (2 Timothy 3:16,17) However, I also try not to go beyond the understand of the scriptures revealed through the "faithful and discreet slave." (Matthew 24:45) I believe in and accept Jesus Christ as my Lord, savior, and king. I do my best to honor and obey him in his very active role as the head of the congregation. (Colossians 1:18)

It is my hope that the answers I post will be helpful and informative to some people. I try to be tactful, polite, and respectful of others. I try not to needlessly offend others, belittle them, get into unfruitful debates, or force my views on others. However, I am not afraid to post things that run contrary to popular belief. I try to make sure my answers are on-topic and not just an excuse to talk about my beliefs. (Colossians 4:6) I am not perfect. (Romans 3:23)

comment Why does God want mankind in Heaven, after they have already shown that they have the tendency to disobey?
God did not know that all things would transpire as they have. He gave us free will which means that Adam and Eve could have obeyed OR disobeyed. It does not mean that they could only have disobeyed, that would be predestination and the opposite of free will. God will never use his ability to see the future in a way that removes our free will. (Deuteronomy 30:19, 20)

comment Does the pope get paid for being the pope?
This answer is inaccurate. We can all see there is nothing modest about the pope's clothing.
