    Jehovah's Witnesses have the true religion. They are Christian (of course), but they are unique for their rejection of paganisms, use of God's personal name, and global preaching by every active adherent. No other religious organization can claim such purity of worship.

    These facts about Jehovah's Witnesses are perhaps relevant to this question. The more one compares this Christian religion with others, the more remarkable it is shown to be.

    1. Jehovah's Witnesses have no paid clergy. Yet they remain tightly organized with more than 6.5 million active Jehovah's Witness preachers (about 16 million associate themselves with the religion). Even fulltime preachers and workers at their branch offices are unpaid volunteers.

    2. There is no elite class among Jehovah's Witnesses. Even the few 'anointed' among them enjoy no special privileges in their congregations on earth. An anointed person (one of those relative few with a heavenly hope) is not elevated above his fellow congregants in any way, and he may not even qualify for appointment as a simple 'deacon' or elder. There are no titles; EVERYONE is addressed as 'brother' or 'sister'.

    3. No person benefits economically from the Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses. Even the 8 to 20 men who serve on their Governing Body receive simply room, board, medical care, and reimbursement for certain personal expenses according to the exact same provision as every other branch volunteer.

    4. About a hundred men have served on Jehovah's Witnesses' Governing Body committee during the past 125 years or so. The vast majority of them have spent the vast majority of their adult lives volunteering for their organization's purposes, and the vast majority have died faithfully and near-pennilessly while still under their legal 'vow of poverty'.

    5. Amazingly, Jehovah's Witnesses did not splinter as a sect from some other religion. Instead, a truly tiny but sincere group of bible students studied only the Scriptures to determine the will of God. Thus their religion remains absolutely independent of and not carrying the sins of Christendom's history, yet carries the authority of Christ's teachings.

    6. Despite the distortions of anti-Witnesses, throughout their modern history Jehovah's Witnesses have refused to claim divine inspiration or infallibility for their teachings. They have pointed to the bible (and not any particular translation) as the only inspired infallible means of knowing God's thoughts. For over 125 years, their teachings have been presented as merely the results of sincere bible research by imperfect but godly humans.

    They are expanding by the thousands, for instance:

    Last year 2006, 248,327became Jehovah's Witnesses and everyone of these had to change their minds pertaining to the false teachings that they had been taught, these were people that used their own Bible, King James, etc., 28,384 were from the United States.

    There are 99,000 Congregations worldwide.

    During the service year, 2,340 Kingdom Halls were completed around the world. This represents an average of 195 halls per month, or just over 6 per day! Since November 1999 when the construction program in lands with limited resources began, 11,700 Kingdom Halls have been built. As of right now, 40 Kingdom Halls are being build each week of the year. In many areas, once a hall is finished, meeting attendance soars and halls are soon filled to capacity.

    Simply put, a lot of people think a lot about Jehovah's Witnesses, and are glad one of them knocked on their door.

    A pain in the backside side I wish they would would stop calling around at our house and trying to convert us to there religion. I am an out and out atheist and as such believe strongly about religion being a total fabrication. Its as bad as worshiping the sun or the stars or a statue. Wise up everyone life is for living and when you die your gone. Why is it so hard to understand that, is it cause your insecure? I think I will go knocking on peoples doors and try to convert them to atheism, can't see that going down to well can you.

    I think they are following a false prophet. One of many that Jesus prophesied about. They also deny that Jesus is God and I believe they are wrong in this thought. I also feel that it is terrible how they have changed the wording of the bible to fit their "itching ears." I feel sad for them and pray that they will see the wrong road that they are being led down.

    It's ironic that although they make such a big deal about "Jehova" being God's true name, it would be more accurate to say that it's "Yahweh" (comes from the letters YHVH). Other than that, they don't believe Jesus is who he said he is.

    Not sure, really. The only personal experience I've had with one was not good, but that was certainly the person in question and not the religion. So, still out on that one.

    JWs are a cult started in the 19th century that is starting to become mainstreamed. Much like the Mormons.

    I can respect that their religion instructs them to try to convert others. My religion (Judaism) teaches against trying to convert, and so hopefully they will be understanding when they come to my door and I wish them well and turn them away.
