    "By this all will know you are my followers if you have ....." ?

    Please refresh my memory of the second part of that Scripture.

    Thanks.

    ''When I was in the JWs I used to think there were no bad JWs at all. Now I begin to wonder if there are any good ones?''

    My thoughts exactly. Could not have said it better myself!!!!!

    I remember a JW Wheeler family from the south east. Wonder if they're related?

    "He told investors that his status as a Jehovah’s Witness meant he was unable to break the law, in an effort to win their trust."

    Frankly, I'm surprised this hasn't happened more often.

    (Or maybe it just hasn't been reported too much until now.)

    For decades, the WatchTower Society has repeatedly portrayed its' Jehovah's Witness members as "the most honest people on earth", supposedly because Jehovah's Witnesses are members of "the only true religion on earth". The following state and federal employment related criminal and civil court cases are not intended as evidence that Jehovah's Witness Employees are more dishonest than other employees, but rather are intended to demonstrate that Jehovah's Witnesses are just as dishonest, or honest, as are other members of the human population -- whether religious or non-religious.

    Mounting evidence, however, seems to indicate that a higher than normal percentage of Jehovah's Witness Investments-Insurance Salespersons are turning to crime. See below all the Investments-Insurance related cases which have become public over the past decade just since the flood of information provided by the internet. (Just for fun, try to keep track of how many times the word "California" occurs just on this first page of this 10-page section.)
