It seems like lately there has been a lot of them. Why do they come to my house and try to read me scripture. I feel like putting up a sign in my front yard that asks them to move on.

Absolutly well written! As far as I an see there is only one mistake. There will be a ressurection of the righteous and the unrighteous! Death is the equital of sin...so they will be judged by their works from that time on. If they do not learn to serve the true God under a perfect goverment and perfect conditions then off to Gehenna they go.(which means the second death from which there is no return) I am so pleased to be serving the true God Jehovah and being a witness for his wonderful truths. He said in the last days there would be a people called by his name. These are a special property to him. For a Free Home Bible study just contact Jehovah's witnesses in your area.

The work J.W. do is the same work that Jesus did. The work is a separating work. It separates those who are considered sheep-like from those who are goat-like. We don't do the judging just the work. The Angles make a report. So if you do not want to hear the word of God from them, all you have to do is hang a sign that says NO TESSPASSING! You will not have to open your door again. There is a bright future for believers! Trust me.

A friend of mine, well versed with the bible but an Agnostic himself, lives in a part of Rhode Island that's prone to a lot of JW influence. I was visiting him one summer when there was a knock on the door. After seeing the people standing there, knowing who they were myself, I was surprised to see him ask them in for coffee.

As much as the JW reps spirits were lifted at that moment, I excused myself to the living room to watch TV. I was within earshot.

I listened to JW talk this or that about promises and duties as written in scripture and my friend always had a sensible counterpoint that would give JW pause. Basically, he would use knowledge from the scripture to counter other knowledge written in the scripture. So after JW decided they had enough, they left. I don't know if they left shaken or not or simply written him off as a kook, but that would be their personal view only. I'm quite aware that my friend is very well read and I don't doubt his recall of written knowledge.

He said that happens every few months or so. Nothing new to him. He does figure that there's a map in a kingdom hall nearby that has a big red X over his address and is used as a place for JW to test their faith.

Its amazing how Jehovahs'people keep progressing in love, unity,and in many aspects of life,inspite of hardship times.
Accepting to be taught by Jehovah and his son has kept Gems shining on this earth. The organization that keeps in pace with the celestial Chariot-truly nonfanatic.

It doesn't take a hive mind to achieve that level of harmonious progression. All it takes is to be "kind to your neighbors and family".

I must disagree with your last comment. The Merriam Webster definition of fanatic is: "marked by excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion". Please explain to me how knocking on every door spreading the JW word is not fanatical?

What a well written & positive article about Jehovah's Witnesses. The building of Kingdom Halls is done worldwide and is evidence of the love of true Christians for each other and for their neighbors. Most of all, it shows their love for God. Thank you for showing us as we really are!

There actually are now twice as many former Jehovah's Witnesses as there are active ones with thousands leaving every month.Baptisms at assemblies is often mostly family member children who have grown up JW.

Jehovah's Witnesses are LOSING members and are on the decline.Japan has lost over 600 congregations.Witnesses are shrinking in number in many Western countries as of the last few years, as the Internet facilitates the spread of information (much of it critical of the Witnesses).

Jehovah's Witnesses members are cautioned against creating JW-related websites, largely to prevent their members from discovering the history and dirty laundry of this organization on other websites. There are literally hundreds of former members pages in many languages

Jehovah's Witnesses beliefs:

A) They are at your door to recruit you for enslavement to their watchtower corporation,they will say that "we are just here to share a message from the Bible" this is deception right off.
B) The 'message' is their false Gospel that Jesus had his second coming in 1914.
C) Their anti-blood transfusion ban has killed hundreds if not thousands
D) once they recruit you they will "love bomb" you in cult fashion to also recruit your family & friends or cut them off. There are many more dangers,Jehovah's Witnesses got a bad rap for good and valid reasons.
99% of the world has rejected the teachings of the Watchtower Jehovah's Witnesses, the darker truth is they are a destructive and oppressive organization.

When Jehovah's Witnesses build Kingdom Halls

The Watchtower SELLS off K-halls left and right for profit,often (get this) to other religions,funeral parlors,hair salons...

Many of theses Kingdom Hall builds are Watchtower corporation "make work" projects that give the appearance of growth to a religion in decline.

The wealthy Watchtower real estate holding company gets free labor provided by the Jehovah's Witnesses followers to donate more tax free property to their corporation. Does the Watchtower contribute anything back to the community,for their tax free status?

you readers who have Kingdom Halls in your town,have you ever seen any charity from them? Billions $$ in Watchtower corporation worldwide real estate assets.

The Watchtower is big money, being one of the top 40 New York City Corporations making nearly one billion dollars a year. That's just from one of their many corporations.
If the Watchtower corporation is a Christian religion then so was Enron.

Thanks for the info Danny.

Just another reason why I abandoned organized religion of all kinds, preferring to worship "God" in my own way. I don't need anybody else telling me how to believe.

My JW cousin in GA, just sent me the hyperlink to your story. I have been a JW since I was born in 1945, an dbaptized at age 8 yeras in NY in 1953. I have also helped to work on several builds, and it is such a joy to work with our brothers and sisters on such a project.
This was a most positive story, and so heartwarming, too. I know how fast we have built several local halls, and, now have three to five congregations in each one we have locally. Our Valley is now it's own Circuit. May Jehovah bless your loving Congregation, and, than you to the journelist who wrwote this article. It was so complete, and gave a very good discription of what the Jehovah's Witmesses are really like.

To Danny HAzard & Just ME,
Peoplelike Danny H. Are liars, and there are at least ten new congregations started up new daily world wide. Danny, is an APOSTATE, who for whatever reason is either a person who couldn't live th elife of a true Christian, or fell away or was Disfellowshipped due to some gross worong doing, whic he failed to rectify.
JUST ME:
If you are curious about what someone believes, ask THEM, not someone else. People like Danny, and are blaspheming the name of our heavenly Father, Jehovah God, and for that, the scriptures say ther is no longer any forgiveness left. Jehovah turns them over to Satan to do with as he pleases, and they become like their Father the Devil, who is the Father of the lie. He told the first lie to Eve, and is busier than ever righ tnow in these last days of this wicked world we now live in, which is on it's way out. Soon, it will be replaced with the Paradise Earth that Jehovah God promised, and there will be no more crime, or death of sickness. The old will grow young again, too.
