Ive been brought up as a Jehovahs witness my entire life and in that time I have come to treasure their teachings and the way in which they follow the bible and unitedly interpret it in the way Jehovah god intended. Why would god inspire the bible for mankind to understand and give us the intellectual capacity to do so if its all a mystery, not to be fully understood?

I am in my early 20s and although left the faith to experience the world indulging into sex, drugs n' rock n' roll, I soon came to find nothing in the world but the fact I once followed Jehovahs witnesses gave me a sense of purpose or self actualization. In the time I left the faith I concentrated my time looking into other beliefs, both in christianity and new religious movements, also buddism, hidusim and paganism. By careful critisim I found too many inconsistences with their practices and belief systems as they were all very lax and believed in self directecd interpretations as opposed to all unitedly agreeing. Jehovahs witnesses are the only religion that worships Jehovah as oposed to only exonerating Jesus, gods son. They do not believe in the trinity but one god Jehovah; Jesus as his son and Jehovahs Holy spirit. Not that all three are one! They do not believe in Hell as that is NOT a bible teaching but a man made doctrine, AS IS THE TRINITY, as I found in extensive research over the past years. They believe in a paradise on earth and as the bible reads, only 144,000 will rule in heaven with jesus, not everyone that dies goes to heaven, just that annointed number of people; which is also clearly outlined in the bible.

I without doubt understand and acknowledge that some unaware of the true teachings and beliefs of the Jehovah's Witnesses are more than hesitant to listen or respect their beliefs; and that is fine, all they want to do is share their truths with you, volunteerally I might add, so that everyone they reach can come to an "accurate knowledge of the truth" and Jehovah the Almighty.

Gosh Ive rambled on, but I for myself have chosen to become a Jehovahs Witness because they can accurately answer from the bible any questions I have and I genuinely believe Jehovah is the one and only true God of whom we should worship. However I sincerely respect those who have different belief systems as we all have the 'free will' to choose our paths whether crooked or straight.

The people that make you go through the trouble of buying a "no solicitors" sign.
The other day I saw a Jehovah's Witness walking door to door down our street, luckily I just bought a "no solicitors" sign.

They basically solicit their faith. Such a sad religion, not believing in birthdays and all. Once you open the door to hear why your going to hell in 2671979936543 different ways, they won't stop. Try to shut the door, they'll hold it open with the convenient Holy Bible door stop.
"Hello, would you like to hear how your going to hell? Also, please read this pamphlet intitled: "101 Reasons Why Your Wrong."

"No thanks." *attempts to shut door*

"Wait!" *wedges bible between door* Please just read this!"

*Jehovah's Witness comes back during inconvenient times*

A Jehovah's Witness is a Christian. It is a type of religion. They believe in God, and Jesus. They also believe God has a name: Jehovah. That's where the name Jehovah's Witness comes from.

I am having a bible study with my friend Judy, the Jehovah's Witness.

Similar to Mormons, but dumb as a post.
The Jehovah's Witness could not respond to any of my questions unless it was covered in his telemarketer's manual "Reasoning from the Scriptures".

IT IS the desire of Jehovah's Witnesses that you become better acquainted with them. You may have met them as neighbors and fellow employees or in other daily affairs of life. You may have seen them on the street, offering their magazines to passersby. Or you may have spoken briefly with them at your door.

Actually, Jehovah's Witnesses are interested in you and your welfare. They want to be your friends and to tell you more about themselves, their beliefs, their organization, and how they feel about people and the world in which all of us live. To accomplish this, they have prepared this brochure for you.
Person: Look the true religion is coming!
Jehovah's Witnesses: Would you like to learn God's ways!
Person: Yes! You guys are not false and awkward like the Mormons but you base all your beliefs on the bible and don't create things like other religions. I was a Mormon and they are weird!

The Taliban of Christianity.
"Who are those modestly dressed, heavily medicated sad chicks littering in our laundry room?" "Oh, those are some Jehovah's Witnesses."
