I was talking to my dad today, and he asked when the JWs changed their name. I replied "in 1933 or 34, Cedar Point - they became the Jehovah's witnesses" He said "No, when did they change to Christ's Witnesses?" I had no reply.
Apparently, he had a JW come to his door (from a car group of 5 doing the neighborhood). My dad told them "I see you are JWs, I am not interested." The lady replied "We are Christ's Witnesses" Which confused my dad because she had a Watchtower in her book bag.
I wasn't there, so I can't verify if they were JWs or if it was some new religion calling themselves Christ's witnesses. It would seem odd that they would mimic the door-to-door of JWs and the name.
Any one heard of Christ's witnesses? or was the JW just pulling BS out of her sleeve?
