I to am a Jeovahs Witnesses, and i if you are then you know why, in matthew24:1-51, jesus told who ever follow's him to pick up his torture stake,and follow, people will persicute you.And they do,there are people that get very irratied with us,i wouldn't let that bother you, when i first started studing, friends and family started telling me so many lies, about jehovah's witnesses,i reserch everything they said,and i found out they were all just lies,another reason people are so miss lead on yahoo answer, is becauese they believe everything they hear and read,some people just type in jehovahs witnesses, on the net and of course what pop's up LIES, and boy have i heard some good ones, just when you thought you'v heard them all. and then of course when some unrepentint brother or sister gets disfellowdship,there mad and spread lot's of lies,and there's allot on hear, I'm shore you'v noticed.Right know some of the answers on your question are lies,fo instance, we do not sell the watchtower and awake, there free, donations are nice, but we don't sell them,i donate my own mony for them, and have never personaly asked enyone to pay for them, i dont mind. and we don't even meet for field service until,9:00-9:30, and it takes another 10-15 mins to get everthing together.we dont kick our kids out of our life,if they want to be JW that is there choice, and yes it makes ya sad when they chose the path thats brod and spaceous, but thats there choice all, jehovah's witnesses have fam thats not in the truth, i still love them and talk to them. your going to find allot of people who don't like you for your beiliefs,and i may not be good for you to do the religouse section of yahoo answers.hang in there. O ya, to some of the answerers, if your not interested, you need to say that and nicely tell us not to come back and we won't, you'll be put down as a do not call, some times peopl may not mark you down and you may be called on agine,if this happens call the kingdom hall in your area, and tell the elders your not interusted,and you won't be botherd anymore.
