    Remember this song? We’re Jehovah’s Witlesses, we speak out in ignorance, ours is the god of false prophecy...

    Carla said "I don't anybody that considers jw's as 'Chrisitan'."

    In theory they are supposed to be but in action they are more pharisee

    Slightly OT , but with the rise of JW dot Org , increasingly I am hearing witnesses describe themselves or talking about the religion as JW / JWs.

    For example with work , I was at a conference and bumped into an active JW who works in the same industry in a different part of the country but whom I hadn't seen for many years. We chatted for a bit & he clearly was unsure if I was still a witness so he asked me "I hope you don't mind me asking , but are you still a JW?" I explained that I no longer attended but I wasn't DFd but it wasn't something I really wanted to talk about & he seemed OK with that , but explained that he was still an elder and his family were all still in. I thought it was interesting that he used the shorthand of "JW" rather than "Jehovah's Witnesses" or simply "a witness".
