    None! They are only strange to those who don’t or want to learn from the ancient scriptures why they believe that way...

    If you go to JW.org and scroll down it tell you what and why?  That if you really want the Truth!

    As Jehovah’s Witnesses, we strive to adhere to the form of Christianity that Jesus taught and that his apostles practiced.

      Jesus is Jehovah's Son and Jesus does exist. I can not believe that you wrote that Jesus does not exist Your

    The belief that there is an ALL-POWERFUL God, which does not USE His Infinite Power to prevent incurable diseases and murders of children is not a STRANGE belief.

    It is very common, among Western religions.

    It is also rather silly, when examined.

    • Just because you do not believe does not make it false! You cannot speak for the thousands that have Faith from the past and now...Nope!

    They believe in reincarnation milk will be resurrected as perfect human beings only if you are one of the 144k chosen. They believe that God is a woman and that Jesus Christ was not the son of a god.

    that we do not take of blood transfusion. even if I was not a Jehovah Witness, I would never take of blood. many families have died from taken of blood. learn what we are about at www.jw.org instead of listening to lies about us. you can also visit a kingdom hall. the doors are always open to anyone who wants to know about us.

       Jehovah's Witnesses believe that "all Scripture is inspired of God and beneficial." (2 Tim. 3:16)  We use the Bible as a practical guide to learn about the creator and to live meaningful lives.

       The Bible says: "May people know  that you, whose name is Jehovah, you alone are the most high over all the earth. "  (Psalm 83:18)  Therefore, we worship only Jehovah God, and as his Witnesses, we endeavor to make known his personal name. -  Isaiah  43:10 - 12.

       As Christians, we believe thar Jesus, "the Son of God," came to earth and became the Messiah. (John 1:34, 41; 4: 25,26)  After he died, Jesus was raised to heaven. Later he became King of God's Kingdom. (Rev. 11:15) That Kingdom is a real government that will restore Paradise to the earth. (Daniel 2:44)

    "The meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance od peace," says the Bible. - Psalm 37: 11, 29.

       Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Bible principles can benefit people even today.  (Isaiah 48: 17,18 ) Therefore, we adhere closely to those principles. For example, because the Bible warns us to avoid practices that pollute our minds and bodies, we do not smoke or misuse drugs.  (2 Corinthians 7;1 )  We also avoid practices specifically condemned  in  the Bible, such as drunkenness, sexual immorality, and stealing.  -  1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

      To learn about our beliefs, including why we do not celebrate the holidays or accept blood transfusions, go to www.jw.org, and look under ABOUT US > FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.

  • To be fair “strange” doesn’t mean something is untrue, it just means it is something new and different to you

    “you bring some strange notions to our ears; we should like to know what these things mean" (Acts 17:20).

    The Athenians described the apostle Paul’s beliefs (Christianity) as strange. Strangeness doesn’t determine truth

    JW’s have false beliefs plain and simple. Strange or not they are untrue

    • If people truly studied the scriptures, you would see that JW’s truly follow its principles not their own. Unlike all the pagan traditions of men that are full of false lies.

    Their strange beliefs are no different or better or worse than the strange beliefs of any religion.

    • The belief would not be strange if you read the scriptures that support them JW.org

      but people who go to church allow men who sleep with men, woman sleeping with woman, men becoming woman and woman becoming men. and people who sleep with someone who is not their wife or husband.

    At Acts 17:19, 20 we read:  So they took hold of him and led him to the Areopagus, saying: “Can we get to know what this new teaching is that you are speaking about?  For you are introducing some things that are strange to our ears, and we want to know what these things mean.”  

    Notice that Paul's teachings were strange to their ears not because it was strange per se but because it was a new teaching - one they had never heard before.  Some say Jehovah’s Witnesses have strange or bizarre teachings because, according to them, the teachings are not mainstream or orthodox. But what is orthodox is determined by God, and not by man.
