How To Be Saved

So-called Jehovah's Witnesses believe the following to be saved. In posts below, please offer what the Bible says is the TRUE way to be saved.

JW's and How to be Saved

Be baptized as Jehovah's Witnesses. Most followers must earn everlasting life on earth by "door-to-door work." Salvation in heaven is limited to 144,000 "anointed ones." This number is already reached.

JW's and What Happens after Death?

The 144,000 live as spirits in heaven. The rest of the righteous, the "great crowd," live on earth, and must obey God perfectly for 1,000 years or be annihilated.

JW's and Other Facts, Beliefs, or Practices

Also known as the International Bible Students Association. Meet in "Kingdom Halls" instead of churches. Active members encouraged to distribute literature door-to-door. Once a year, Lord's Evening Meal (communion); only "anointed ones" may partake. Do not observe holidays or birthdays. Forbidden to vote, salute the flag, work in the military, or accept blood transfusions.

    Let me prime the pump with this:

    That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Rom 10:10

    To confess is to state openly and authentically what one knows to be true deep in the heart.

    Confess that Jesus is Jehovah (Lord).

    Confess that Jesus was resurrected bodily as the Bible thoroughly describes.

    To deny such things is to deny salvation. Such a one would be left alone to flail frantically about in the waves as they sink beneath the surface.

    Believe, and you will be saved.
