What do Jehovah’s Witnesses believe? In fact, what do a lot of other religions believe in? Hocus pocus if you ask me. Either way, our ‘Beliefs’ category takes a look at various religious belief systems.
Many say that the Jehovah’s Witness religion is a cult. Do you think it’s a cult? In this section, we’ve housed all the blog posts that show you if it is a cult or not. You might be shocked at what you find.
The Watchtower Organisation looks after all the Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide. The good news about the ‘Organisation’ is that it keeps having magic moments, allowing us to poke fun at it.

Jehovah’s Witnesses are the Only Ones that Will be SavedSubmitted by Jaymes on July 29, 2012 - 9:33 am 36 Comments
I received an email from Joshua McCabe which simply asked if Jehovah’s Witnesses are the only ones that will be saved when Armageddon comes around. I’ll email Joshua the link to this article.
The Watchtower Society has made a name for itself by being presumptuous. I thought I’d take a leaf out of their book and say that Jehovah’s Witnesses are the only ones that will be saved when God decides to bring about Armagenocide.
Was that too bold a statement to make? After all, the Watchtower Society have made this claim on their website under the Do they believe that they are the only ones who will be saved? section:
No. Millions that have lived in centuries past and who were not Jehovah’s Witnesses will come back in a resurrection and have an opportunity for life. Many now living may yet take a stand for truth and righteousness before the “great tribulation,” and they will gain salvation. Moreover, Jesus said that we should not be judging one another. We look at the outward appearance; God looks at the heart. He sees accurately and judges mercifully. He has committed judgment into Jesus’ hands, not ours.—Matthew 7:1-5; 24:21; 25:31.
Okay, I’m not sure the buffoons at Watchtower HQ realised that they weren’t answering the question that they themselves wrote on their own God forsaken (no pun intended) website. So here it is again:
Do they believe that they are the only ones who will be saved?
We’re looking for an answer as to the people that will survive when Armageddon hits, not how many will be resurrected to stand in line and pat the cute lion on the head. In the second sentence, they finally get to the point by saying that “many now living may yet take a stand for truth.” I added the bold and italic element to the word “may” because it was obvious that this was the main trigger word.
Let’s take a look at what the Watchtower Society has said regarding the question if Jehovah’s Witnesses are the only ones that will be saved.
“Only Jehovah’s Witnesses, those of the anointed remnant and the “great crowd,” as a united organization under the protection of the Supreme Organizer, have any Scriptural hope of surviving the impending end of this doomed system dominated by Satan the Devil.” – Watchtower 1989 Sep. 1 p.19
“Similarly, Jehovah is using only one organization today to accomplish his will. To receive everlasting life in the earthly Paradise we must identify that organization and serve God as part of it.” – Watchtower 1983 Feb. 15 p.12
“During the final period of the ‘ancient world’ that perished in the Flood, Noah was a faithful ‘preacher of righteousness.’ (2 Peter 2:5) In these last days of the present system of things, Jehovah’s people are making known God’s righteous standards and are declaring good news about the possibility of surviving into the new world. (2 Peter 3:9-13) Just as Noah and his God-fearing family were preserved in the ark, survival of individuals today depends on their faith and their loyal association with the earthly part of Jehovah’s universal organization.” – Watchtower 2006 May 15 p.22 “Are You Prepared for Survival?” Paragraph 8
“But Jehovah’s servants already belong to the only organization that will survive the end of this wicked system of things.” – Watchtower 2007 Dec. 15 p.14
“But if we were to draw away from Jehovah’s organization, there would be no place else to go for salvation and true joy.” – Watchtower 1993 Sep. 15 p.22
“Only Christian witnesses of Jehovah who successfully pass this test will survive and come forth like fire-refined gold for God’s use in his precious new order”. – Watchtower 1985 Mar. 1 p.14
So let me ask the question one more time – in fact, let me just make a statement – Jehovah’s Witnesses are the only ones that will be saved.
Before I go, I wanted to review the secondary part of the paragraph found on the official Watchtower Society website.
We look at the outward appearance; God looks at the heart. He sees accurately and judges mercifully.
For Pete’s sake! Firstly, who is Pete, and secondly, if God looks at the heart, why bother going out on the ministry? If Jehovah can judge everyone’s heart, there’s no point really, is there?
So Joshua, I think I’ve answered your question quite thoroughly – Jehovah’s Witnesses are the only ones that will be saved when Jehovah decides to lovingly wipe out the majority of the human race.
