On the front page of Jehovah’s Witness News, I found this:
…NOTE TO OPPOSERS:
Jehovah’s Witnesses represent individuals
from all walks of life around the world who
have voluntarily left the churches of Christendom,
Judaism, Islam, and virtually all other religions,
despite the sometimes intense criticism from friends
and family or even physical persecution
(often the influence of religious leaders)
because we are lovers of truth.
Jesus Christ prophesied about and commanded
his congregation (church) to preach the
“good news of the Kingdom in all the inhabited
earth for a witness to all the nations” (Matt. 24:14, 28:19)
Jehovah’s Witnesses are an army of over 7,000,000
tried and tested pillars of spiritual fortitude,
spending over 1,000,000,000 (billion) hours
per year canvasing with a unified message
regarding The Good News Of The Kingdom
as Christ commanded his TRUE followers to do.
I especially love the “because we’re lovers of truth” line. Very humble and unassuming, no? Capitalizing the word “true” in the line “TRUE followers” was also a nice touch. So, what do you think?
On a related note, they also had this article.
For those who are really into the Michael Jackson story, this article is especially cool because it has a lot of references to the Society’s literature, but it isn’t a site run by the Society or Jehovah’s Witnesses.
The manipulative, shrewd Garrido would then have brought both women steadily under his spell – his mother would have become ever more dependent as she descended into dementia.
And it could well be that Nancy’s religious upbringing as a Jehovah’s Witness provided her new husband with another means of manipulating her – telling her, as he was to tell the world, that God spoke directly to him.
Religion would be a powerful tool in the hands of a man who wanted nothing more than to manipulate – and ultimately humiliate – any woman with whom he had a relationship.
An elder at a local Jehovah Witness congregation told police he was alarmed when he pulled into the garage of his Murrieta home and spotted two doors ajar.
His voice cracked a few times and he dabbed his eyes with the tissue Gomez hands him.
Kelle Jarka stood to gain $1 million from the three life insurance policies taken out on his wife in the weeks before she was savagely beaten to death inside her bedroom, according to police testimony earlier in the trial.
This is Mormon web site. Turns out they like to crack jokes about Jehovah’s Witnesses as much as Witnesses do about them. The author has drawn up a list of similarities between the two groups.
