A question to Jehovah's witnesses about their dating and marriage habits?

A question to Jehovah's witnesses about their dating and marriage habits? Topic: Personal statement about yourself examples
June 26, 2019 / By Joash
Question: I accidentally stumbled across a dating website.What I found was huge shock to me.Almost 95% witnesses enrolled in that web site are divorces aged from 20 to 30.People in there 20s are looking for a 2nd life partner after their failed 1 st marriage and many are open about their previous relationship(that too inside the witness circle)some also claim to be dis fellowship-ed in the past. What astonishes me is that all are uniform in there desire to travel all over the world,blames the previous partner for the failed previous marriage and wants a guy or a girl who is funny. I know some witnesses who go on a dating spree until finding suitable one.There is no biblical back ground for this habit but the society encourages it.It is really weird. After a huge dating spree witness children are finally settling with a single partner and when it sours they simply divorce and again go on a dating spree.This is more rampant in US(where Jehovah choose to set his head quarters and found ministers for his sons future cabinet) and also in most European countries.I really expect the witnesses to be an example for non witnesses in this regard but the opposite has happen. I am from a south asian country.Even though I didn't agree with the Jehovah's witnesses on many things I am happy to state that witnesses and also non witnesses in my country are morally clean than the witnesses in US and western countries. The society even imposes sanctions on the sex life of witnesses but why does it simply guides the un biblical practice of dating?As for as my knowledge 90% of witnesses are having a second and third partner in marriage.If any one refute this claim please go to any kingdom hall in the US and have a look around.Even though genuine reasons for divorce is acceptable and practiced by the israelites.But this 3 and 4 marriage is really un acceptable.I think Jehovah God will not be happy about your personal life style(you are not different from non witnesses) The israelites practiced normal court ship that too after betrothal or with the knowledge of their parents.Men are allowed to marry many women but women are not allowed to date men in the pretext of (until)finding a suitable one before their marriage. Dating is encouraged by many articles by the society.But do you know that the dating spree is not practiced by ancient jews?Do you know that it is a product of the 20th century?I think it is time to re examine yourselves about dating your practices. Edit:Well,I forgot to mention the name of the web site.It was jwmatch.com and I verified some of the people personally and found them to be real witnesses.You please go and do a search in that web site and you will find out what I am saying is true.People in US can even find members from their own congregations. Edit: SMILE are you a JW?if so you will be having a book called QUESTIONS YOUNG PEOPLE ASK please go and read the first chapter.If you are not a JW then ask them for the book when they knock at your door step. Edit: Porcelain vessel Go and read the book QUESTIONS YOUNG PEOPLE ASK ANSWERS THAT WORK page number 256 Under the head lines SHOULD WE BREAK UP The purpose of the courtship is to investigate the possibility of marriage.And if a christian starts a courtship in good faith,he are she has no obligation to continue if it proves faulty.Besides would it not be wrong and selfish to prolong a deteriorating relationship on the premise maybe I won't find someone else?( compare philippians 2:4). These words are taken from the book published by your Watch tower society.People use this article to justify and change dating partners.Even the society has cited bible verses to stress this point.This is more than enough for many young people to go on a dating spree. Edit:Porcelain vessel You please go to that website and search profiles from your home country and province.There you can find many witnesses known to you.Many have stated their home congregations loaded their pictures in their profiles.If you have any hesitation regarding the search I will do it on your behalf if you state your country and province.I also found some people from near by congregations who were known to my parents. Then if you wish,you can report them to watch tower society for violating the code of conduct. Edit:Buster You can remove my question but you cannot deny the truth about witnesses life style in US and western countries.You can go and criticize the religions all over the world but you and your fellow witnesses cannot stand up to health criticism (with back up evidence)Long live your fight for freedom of speech. Edit;Buster Can you please elaborate,what are the bad faced lies in my question.Did you meant that US and European witnesses never date(which is un biblical)and spend life with only partner all through their living years.If so I am read to apologize.Show me one verse from scriptures that dating is practiced by israelites.Then I will delete my question. Edit:Buster Again, you have absolutely NO way of supporting or backing up that statement.(did you meant that I have to go a kingdom hall and collect personal data from each and every witness about,how many times you have married in the past?How many boys and girls have you dated?) "But this 3 and 4 marriage is really un acceptable.I think Jehovah God will not be happy about your personal life style(you are not different from non witnesses)" - Not only is that statement a lie, but it's completely ridiculous as well. Who cares what YOU find unacceptable? God does have an allowance for divorce, which people may choose in certain circumstances. Sometimes people remarry if a spouse dies, sometimes if they have to divorce a spouse for their unfaithfulness. Multiple times being married is not disapproved by God, so long as any divorcing done is only on God's approved ground of fornication(YES I MEANT THAT ONLY.WITNESSES IN US AND EUROPE MARRY MULTIPLE TIMES SINCE UNFAITHFULNESS IS MORE COMM Edit:Buster Again, you have absolutely NO way of supporting or backing up that statement.(did you meant that I have to go a kingdom hall and collect personal data from each and every witness about,how many times you have married in the past?How many boys and girls have you dated?)

Jehovah's Witnesses are allowed to date as often as they wish(WOW,THANKS FOR SUPPORTING MY POINT,YES AS I HAD SAID,JEHOVAH'S WITNESS DATE AS OFTEN AS THEY WISH) as they look for a potential marriage partner. There's no law saying you MUST marry the person you're dating. Not all situations work out that way. One thing is sure,you must be lying or you must be new to the witness community.Your anger has two meanings one is,you must have married multiple women and two is you must have dated multiple girls.(AGAIN YOU WILL SAY I AM A LYRE.THEN YOU WILL ASK ME,HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT I HAD DATED AND MARRIED MULTIPLE WOMEN? IF YOU WANT TO PROVE THAT I AM LYRE YOU PLEASE TELL ME YOUR NAME,CONGREGATION AND COUNTRY OF RESIDENCE THEN i CAN VERIFY MYSELF PERSONALLY ABOUT YOU,AND I AM REA Edit:buster Sorry,I have problem in my net,so add details have appeared number of times

Legitimate Jehovah's Witnesses would have nothing to do with such trash websites like that. And there is no "code of conduct" for Jehovah's Witnesses to violate. ** You are reported to Yahoo for this little rant of yours. *** What I'll deny is that you've told ANY truth about the lifestyle of Jehovah's Witnesses. Everything you state against Jehovah's Witnesses is a bald-faced lie. We stand up perfectly fine against "health criticism" (whatever you mean by that). *** Oh boy! Please do yourself a favor and go back on your meds. Some of the things you've stated are lies, and others are just wildly absurd statements you can't support. "I am happy to state that witnesses and also non witnesses in my country are morally clean than the witnesses in US and western countries." (You have absolutely NO way of supporting that statement.) "As for as my knowledge 90% of witnesses are having a second and third partner in marriage.If any one refute this claim please go to any kingdom hall in the US and have a look around." - (Again, you have absolutely NO way of supporting or backing up that statement.) "But this 3 and 4 marriage is really un acceptable.I think Jehovah God will not be happy about your personal life style(you are not different from non witnesses)" - (Not only is that statement a lie, but it's completely ridiculous as well.

Gray Originally Answered: Jehovah Witnesses, did you know Isaiah 40:3 tells us that Jesus is Jehovah?
yes here ShepherdsChapel.com and Jesus has many names in the bible also his name has been written in manny languages, the most common are hebrew and greek. But we are expose to be preparing our selves for when he returns to earth. Not in some church waiting to be ruptured off this planet. mark 13 and mathew 24 talk of 2 men in a field one is taken the other is left the one take is taken by antichrist to be ruptured so called and those that wait in the fields are awaiting the return of Jesus.

You said - "I know some witnesses who go on a dating spree until finding suitable one.There is no biblical back ground for this habit but the society encourages it." Could you please provide proof for your claim that "the society encourages it" & "Dating is encouraged by many articles by the society".... because the opposite is true. Also, please provide proof for your other claims, as they are not right either. For example, we are counselled not to use 'dating sites' Thanks ~~~~~ edit in response to you... After looking, you will notice on that site, that in the profiles it lists: 'smoking habits', and 'religion.' Now if this was run by Jehovah's Witnesses in good standing, then 'smoking habits' would not be there in the list because NO Jehovah's Witnesses smoke, and it would have no need to state 'religion' because they're all supposed to be Jehovah's Witnesses. Very fishy indeed. Also, we are counselled not to visit 'dating sites' particularly online ones, because no one can tell for sure who they are communicating with on such sites. In view of this, anyone disregarding such counsel would be showing that they are weak spiritually and are also rebellious. About the YPA book... I read the page you requested me to, and it does not suggest that we go on a dating spree at all. That section is referring to the important commitment of marriage & making sure that we are compatible before we take that very important step. In fact, if you look on page 226 under the sub-heading 'The Pressure to date'.... you will notice that it states - "...dating is serious business—a part of the process of selecting a marriage mate. Marriage? Admittedly, this may be the last thing on the minds of most youths who date. But really, what justification could there be for two people of the opposite sex to begin spending a lot of time together other than to investigate the possibility of marrying each other? In the long run, dating for any other reason is likely to result in anything but “fun.” This clearly states that the only reason why two people of the opposite sex should begin spending time together is because they have the important view of marriage in mind.... not a 'dating spree' as you suggest.

Check out the writings of naturalist Rhube Thorndike, who did extensive field research living amongst a heard of wild Jehova's Witnesses in order to observe them in their natural habitat.

Aladdin Originally Answered: Jehovah's Witnesses I will give you a try?
I am SO happy to hear you say that. I knew you had a belief in God, even though you have been badly treated by some who called themselves christian, but refuse to live a christlike life. You will not regret your choice. As badly as I felt when I left for the weekend, (I only have internet at work,) now I feel tremendous! Your unique perspective will do you well as you study again. You have an ability to see thru a load of crud that christendom has tried to spoon feed you, and reject it for the garbage it is. I find nothing offensive about your avatar, but find it a very humble attitude of yours that you would change it if it offended. I wish you well, I wish I could be at your studies. It would be an honor. Warm christian love, Leslie
