The Jehovah's Witnesses are rare among religious groups in publishing precise (though self-reported) membership statistics. The organisation is also unusual in counting as a member only someone who is actively involved in teaching its works.
The group claimed 6.7m practising members as of August 2006, and some 16.7m in attendance at its big annual service. America has most members, at over 1m. Big devout countries include Brazil, Mexico and Nigeria. Since 2005, membership has dropped most in Europe. Latin America and Africa saw the biggest increases.
There are now twice as many former Jehovah's Witnesses as there are active ones with 13,000 leaving every month.
Debunking the 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 is ruling in heaven already since 1914.The problem with this is it's not just a cute fairy tale,Jesus warned of the false prophets who would claim "..look he is here in the wilderness,or see here he is at the temple"
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.
