Many people have a wrong view of Jehovah's Witnesses, wich is unfortunate.
They have been falsely accused of not loving their children and letting them die.
They have been falsely accused of being against gouverment rules and disrespecting local authorities.
They have been falsely accused of trying to get as many followers as possible to get money.
These accusations are all wrong tho.
Many people do not know Jehovah's Witnesses are good, loving people. Often called strict, they are just welbehaved people, that care about others. They are knowed to leave the places they had congressations at totally clean.
Many people do not know Jehovah's Witnesses are everywhere on earth. They do everything posible to visit everyone on earth and tell them the good news about Gods Kingdom in their own language. Therefore they have translated the bible and their publications in more languages then any other book, wich sounds unbelievable, but is true.
Many people think Jehovah's Witnesses are not allowed to have fun in any way. The fact is tho that they have good reason for not participating in certain celebration, like christmas. Those celebrations are often pagan and Jehovah's Witnesses simply do not wish to participate in pagan rituals. Jehovahs Witnesses are allowed to do exercise and have fun, as long as it is not in violation with laws in the bible.
Many people do not know Jehovah's Witnesses have a totally different view about the future then most christian religions. They do not believe that bad people will burn forever in hell, and that all rightious people go to heaven. They believe that only a small group rightious people will go to heaven, the other rightious people can live forever in a paradise on earth. This will be posible after what they call Armageddon, in wich God will remove all bad people from earth, not sending them to a hell where they will suffer forever, but just destroying them.
Only good people will live forever on a paradise like earth, and that ofcourse is a very good thing to believe in. They want others to know this and that is one of the reasons they try to visit everyone.
Many people do not know Jehovah's Witnesses do not force their children or anyone else to get baptized or give money. Everyone is baptized because they want to, and their meetings are financed by their own gifts.
Many people do not know that they are called Jehovah's Witnesses instead of "Jehovas", wich they are called too often.
Many people do not know Jehovah's Witnesses welcome everyone who is interested to their meeting in their Kingdom Hall and are willing to give everyone who wants a free biblestudy.
For the best description of what they believe tho, its best to ask them in person, at their meeting or the next time they visit you for example.
They also have an official site, wich is viewable in 252 different languages:
""YOU are my witnesses," is the utterance of Jehovah."
