Let’s imagine you get a knock on your door from Jehovah’s Witnesses.
How would you react if they said the following:
“Good morning. We’re in the area visiting you and your neighbors to warn you that the United Nations is going to ban religion. Every one will go “sure, ok”. Muslims will gather together to dismantle Mecca, Catholics tear down the Vatican and Buddhists will firebomb their own temples. - because the UN told them to.”
The United Nations telling religious people to stop believing in god. And them just shrugging their shoulders and going along with it. - Watchtower, September 2012.
“Then, Jehovah’s Witnesses will be the only religion on earth. As such, we’ll be hunted down worldwide so we’ll hide in bunkers waiting for Michael the archangel (who is Jesus alter-ego) who will swoop down on a flying horse along with 144,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses who have been transformed into male angels (including our governing body) and kill all non-Jehovah’s Witnesses with bow and arrows.”
“Then they’ll throw Satan disguised as a cat into an abyss.”
Satan, in cat form, being hurled into an abyss. Watchtower, May 2015
“All you have to do to survive is become a Jehovah’s Witness, disown your family and shun your own children or parents if they join then decide later to leave. You get to spend your weekends (minimum) peddling magazines door to door for free while abandoning any idea of a career or University education.”
“Also, we’re to look to 8 men in America who we’ve never met as god’s sole means of communication on earth. They’re not our leaders, no-no, they’re simply Guardians Of Doctrine (G.O.D.) on earth who “take the lead”. Totally different. - Wanna join?”
What would you think?
We knew that if we presented you with what Jehovah’s Witnesses actually believe you’d never join. It’s like the frog in a boiling pot of water. You need to start with cool water then gradually heat it up until the frog is boiled alive. Give you generic teachings, then add to it bit by bit until you’re indoctrinated.
All of the above are real Jehovah’s Witness beliefs. And that’s just scratching the surface, there’s lots more bizarre things. So much so, that a lot of Jehovah’s Witnesses on Quora either don't know they’re supposed to believe some of the things I mention or haven't got that far in their indoctrination yet to have heard about it.
You’ll find if you get a Jehovah’s Witness on the door they’ll instead use the bait and switch method: Ask a generic bible question and get a magazine in your hand. That’s stage one of the indoctrination process.
Because otherwise you might think they’re a mad end of the world cult that breaks up families or something.
You know, like a mad end of the world cult that breaks up families?
