Welcome aboard, Karin! Nice to meet you. I appreciate your willingness to connect with us here. It’s great that you took the right decision to follow Christ. It’s important to strengthen your walk with Him by reading the Word daily and praying regularly. I’d suggest that you find a Bible study group in your area. Do you attend a church nearby? Please know that you can always come here to share your thoughts or concerns. I hope you’ll enjoy your stay here. May God draw you closer to Himself and help you to grow in Him in the days ahead. Blessings!

Hey thank you. I have a few alternatives, Church of Sweden, Philadephia and Jehovas Witnesses in my hometown. I must figure out whats most important for me in my beliefs first and how they are as a organisation/ congregation. I really need brothers and sisters.I will pray for guidance.

Please do not get involved with Jehovah's Witness.

Close scrutiny of their doctrinal position on such subjects as the deity of Christ, salvation, the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, and the atonement shows beyond a doubt that they do not hold to orthodox Christian positions on these subjects. Jehovah’s Witnesses believe Jesus is Michael the archangel, the highest created being. This contradicts many Scriptures which clearly declare Jesus to be God (John 1:1,14, 8:58, 10:30). Jehovah’s Witnesses believe salvation is obtained by a combination of faith, good works, and obedience. This contradicts countless scriptures which declare salvation to be received by grace through faith (John 3:16; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5). Jehovah’s Witnesses reject the Trinity, believing Jesus to be a created being and the Holy Spirit to essentially be the inanimate power of God. Jehovah’s Witnesses reject the concept of Christ’s substitutionary atonement and instead hold to a ransom theory, that Jesus’ death was a ransom payment for Adam’s sin. https://www.gotquestions.org/Jehovahs-Witnesses.html

Top Ten Things Wrong with Jehovah’s Witnesses

1. Christ Jesus is not their mediator but the governing body/organization is.

2. They accept the organization as Gods sole “channel” of truth not relying on Holy Spirit themselves.

3. They believe the Watchtower contains Gods truth, directed by Holy Spirit. Without it one cannot understand the Bible.

4. They claim to be Christian but the vast majority reject Christ Blood and flesh and they do this in a ritualistic fashion every memorial of Christ death by passing the bread and wine among themselves and not eating it. Even the speaker must touch the plate or the cup and reject it for all to see.

5. They use the name Jehovah over Yahweh but will agree Yahweh is more accurate.

6. They demand 100% unity at all cost and will disfellowship members if they disagree with any doctrine.

7. They claim they were approved and chosen by Christ Jesus in 1918 to do Gods will. However their teachings at the time and mistakes since then prove this could not be true.

8. They let their loved ones die imposing their doctrinal ban on blood transfusions based on the law covenant. However people broke the law covenant when lives were at stake. Such as saving a life of a sheep or human on the sabbath. King David broke the law to save his men.

9. They have ruined thousands of peoples lives by disfellowshipping members without “saying a greeting” to them. Misapplying 2 John 10

10. They are known as being false prophets for their many false predictions going back over 150 years. They predicted the end would come in 1914, 1975 and the generation alive in 1914 would not die off before the end. Of course time has ran out on their “generation” understanding so this they have changed.

Hi Karin, I am from Stockholm. I would love to read the Bible with someone or a group of someones. I am most interested in the new testament. I am new to the forum although I joined a long time ago. I just do not come here often.

I agree that you should avoid Jehovas Witness. There is Kristi församling (International Churches of Christ, ICC, ICOC) and the Luteriska "Svenska Kyrkan" (is that the same as Church of Sweden?). I found a number of small churches from Syria and the middle east that are extremely warm and family oriented. There is a new Gospel church in Norrmalm, but I do not know if you are near Stockholm.
