A youtube video Nov 10, at https: Watchtower magazine, July 15, , page 14, par 11 Jehovah's Witnesses must reject 'foolish and ignorant debates' with anyone who questions Watchtower viewpoints. Watchtower magazine, July 15, , pages JW's can't say 'Bless you' or 'God Bless you' when someone sneezes A public talk at the Convention of Jehovah's Witnesses said it was wrong to associate with long time inactive Jehovah's Witnesses. Jehovah's Witnesses who don't go to all the meetings and take part in the preaching activity JW Elders can't give funeral talks and JW's can't attend funerals for EX-JW's including EX-JW relatives unless there is evidence that the deceased was taking steps to be a JW again before they died such as attending meetings, talking to Elders about reinstatement, etc. Back to the top The Five Top Rules. Some JW rules cannot be broken without serious consequences. Here are the top five rules. The word 'CAN'T' in this list of rules includes restrictions of the organization and restrictions JW's place upon themselves in an effort to please their God Jehovah. Many of the rules such watching porn, reading sexual materials, sexual fantasies, etc are hard to enforce if there's no proof. Two or three witnesses are required to prove guilt. Or someone might voluntarily confess. However going to the Elders in hopes of solving their 'problem' is not likely to make them feel better. All JW's are expected to turn off sexual thoughts or 'deaden' them except for the person they're married to. A person who can't do that might feel broken, defective, hopeless, unloved by God, etc. To understand the loneliness, guilt, self-imposed judgment, and despair JW's can feel when they have sexual fantasies, read 'Jehovah's High Moral Standards' and the path to mental illness. Back to the top Criticism Of The Rules. Jehovah's Witnesses may object and say they have gotten away with doing some of the things on this list. This is very true. The rules are not quite as important as loyalty to the organization. Here's what our experience was when we were Jehovah's Witnesses. If a Jehovah's Witness wants to be loved and accepted by their family and the only friends they are allowed to have, they instinctively know it's best to go above and beyond the minimum requirements of the Watchtower Society. The last thing a Jehovah's Witness wants to do is get in trouble with the organization or be called in for a 'judicial committee hearing'. In an effort to stay out of trouble, some Jehovah's Witness like to blend in and not be noticed. Others prefer to take the lime light as a leader, doing far more than is required. The rules were compiled by former Jehovah's Witnesses who were happy to live by these rules when they were active in the organization. That being said, the rules can be very restrictive for young children who are singled out because they can't do many things fellow students do. Many adult JW's don't have a problem following the rules. The ones that do, are free to leave. However leaving is very difficult. Some rules could be condensed to make the list shorter and some rules could be expanded to make the list longer. The rules are not organized in order of importance. Why do some JW's say this list is incorrect and that ' rules' don't exist? Are The Rules Correct? Back to the top Fear. Everyone is afraid of challenging the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses. Even some highly inactive Jehovah's Witnesses who rarely go to meetings, are afraid to speak out against the organization. Secretly they break the rules when no one is watching. But they will not publicly voice their viewpoints or disagree. Saying anything negative about their religion could result in disfellowshipping and being shunned. If this were to happen, they would lose relationships with family and friends inside the organization. If caught, some things Jehovah's Witnesses can't do are very serious and can result in disfellowshipping or disassociation. Other things are looked down upon or judged negatively by individuals within the organization. Some things are a matter conscience. Not every rule is given equal weight. In serious matters there needs to be two or more witnesses to the 'wrong doing' unless the accused admits guilt. For some items on this list, there are no formal rules that say you must not do these things. No one forbids them from being a cheerleader, buying girl scout cookies, reading literature from other religions, playing competitive sports, etc. Jehovah's Witnesses 'can' technically do some of the things on this list, but they don't. Zealous JW's choose to follow stricter guidelines. They don't participate because most are overwhelmed by fear and guilt at the mere thought of displeasing Jehovah. For example, Jehovah's Witnesses must not celebrate Halloween. Does that mean they can't give out candies when children come to their door? However many Jehovah's Witnesses will not participate in giving out candies, because to them it's part of the Halloween celebration. How will believers and non believers view my actions? Will I be exposed to people on a regular basis who don't share my beliefs and moral values? Will involvement in an activity mean missing meetings, Bible study, going door to door, etc.? Will an action in some way compromise my position on political neutrality? Will I be supporting the churches of Christendom and other 'false' religions? Back to the top Guilt Trips And Fear. Why do Jehovah's Witnesses feel guilty about doing so many things? Because their God Jehovah has many attributes. He is a God of love, but he is also a God of righteousness and judgment. When angered, Jehovah is capable of wiping out entire nations in a fit of rage. Jehovah is a tribal God.
