Will Only Jehovah’s Witnesses be Saved?

Will only Jehovah's Witnesses be Saved?

Salvation is believed to be a process that begins when a person first becomes a Christian, continues through that person’s life, and is completed when they stand before Christ in judgment. Therefore, the faithful Christian can say in faith and hope, “I have been saved; I am being saved; and I will be saved.”

Do Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that they are the only persons who will be saved?

What JW.org says…
…about being Saved

No. Many millions who lived in centuries past and who weren’t Jehovah’s Witnesses will have an opportunity for salvation. The Bible explains that in God’s promised new world, “there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 24:15) Additionally, many now living may yet begin to serve God, and they too will gain salvation. In any case, it’s not our job to judge who will or won’t be saved. That assignment rests squarely in Jesus’ hands.—John 5:22, 27.

What AvoidJW.org says…
…about being Saved

Read again what JW.org says about being saved: “millions who lived in centuries past…will have an opportunity for salvation”.  Jehovah’s Witnesses are a relatively new religion. It was founded in 1870. Therefore, they have to admit that millions who lived centuries ago have an opportunity to be saved. After all, it was impossible for those of old to become Jehovah’s Witnesses when the religion never existed! The reality is, their answer to the question asked in this post title is “Yes”. They really do believe that one must serve God within the Jehovah’s Witness faith to gain salvation. Although, they say it is not their job to judge, they do judge (see Are Former Jehovah’s Witnesses Shunned?).

Let’s ask the question again: Will only Jehovah’s Witnesses be Saved? Yes. Since 1870. Or at least, that is what Jehovah’s Witnesses believe.

  1. When I pray before we eat, my JW never says amen after I prayed before we eat… Why? Because I’m not a JW? Aren’t we all God’s creation? After all, I’m a Christian too. When he tells me he’s Christian JW, I never disputed that. I know he’ll be probably saved whether is religion is right or wrong. God looks down at the heart but I do feel they are extremely brainwashed. They have great enlightenment on a lot of things but when it comes to be closed to the world difference of opinion, they def score very high. It’s sad.

  2. When I read the JW statement on the jw.org site, I thought the same way as the author of this article said. Why is it everytime I say to my JW friend God bless you my friend, he doesn’t reply back? Because he knows that if I don’t switch religion, I will be destroyed. Actions speak louder than words.

  3. No, unrighteous people who didn’t know about God and Jesus have an opportunity to learn about them in new world. Jehovah’s Witness explained according to the bible that only JW people of righteous and people who is not JW doesn’t know about God and Jesus at all is called unrighteous under Jehovah’s judge will have an opportunity to live and learn about them during 1,000 years under Jehovah’s son Jesus rules. Read the bible. You can avoid JW if you want. Its up to you. Many churches including you denies God’s name according to Psalm 83:18. Jehovah has a right to have his name in every bible pages. Its so sad to see many churches bible including yours only have subject or title like God and Lord all the time. Please stop pick on JW, alright ? What you did is under Satan’s influence against JW. Sorry about my English. Thank you.
