Do you believe that the Jehovahs Witnesses are True Christians? Just by the way they live and act? Also by the way they live everyday according to what God asks of us, to go and make witness to God and Jesus Christ? Also, because they stick close to God? I have found that they are true believers in God and in Jesus and try very hard to set a good examples of how a True Christian should act?

As a pagan that was raise as a JW... I personally do not understand why any christian would not be JW... They live their lives as closely to the examples in the bible as possible. I have studied MANY christian religions and all (except JWs) have pagan roots and practices. To me that's not Christianity it's just paganism with a different face... I am happily pagan and proud to be that way. To me Christianity just doesn't make sense... But IF I were ever to convert I would be a JW or nothing at all...

Ugh. That's an extremely difficult question to answer. Under NO circumstances can I look at someone, judge their life, and say "You are/aren't Christian and you are/aren't going to heaven/hell". Having said that, I do not put them in the same category as Christians. There has been many discussions about this over the last few days, but, in a nutshell, it's because they believe in several things that go directly against the Bible (and I'm not talking about the NWT).

Do you believe that the Jehovahs Witnesses are True Christians? IMO, no. Based on their beliefs about the deity of Christ and his resurrection. Scripture says if we do not believe in this than our faith is in vain.
Just by the way they live and act? The way we live and act is not what MAKES a person a Christian. A Christian is someone who has put their eternal fate and trust COMPLETELY in Christ hands, based upon his death and resurrection. To my knowledge JW's do not do this.
