1 Jehovah’s Witnesses are Christians
True - We are the only True Christians. However, Jesus is always secondary to YHWH or Yahweh, who we for some reason call Jehovah.
2 Jehovah’s Witnesses are creationists
True, we are just not young-earth creationists
3 Jehovah’s Witnesses do not believe in doctors
False - Of course we believe in doctors. If we can believe in an invisible sky daddy, surely we can believe in the doctor standing before us in flesh and blood. Talking about which, no we do not take full blood, even though this cost an estimated 50000 deaths since we started disfellowshipping (excommunicating) persons who took a life-saving blood transfusion. New light does allow us to take all fractions though.
4 Jehovah’s Witnesses accept the entire Bible
False - As the revised NWT shows, we have eliminated parts that don’t fit our teachings. For example John 8, where Jesus states “He who is without sin, cast the first stone” has been removed, as persons where using it too often when faced with a Judicial Committee. We can’t have that sort of Christ-like compassion.
5 Jehovah’s Witnesses use only their own Bible translation
True, as the Watchtower of May 1, 2008 points out, witnesses are strongly advised not to use translations other than the New World Translation.
6 Jehovah’s Witnesses changed their Bible to fit their beliefs
True, the whole reason we released a revised NWT is to better fit our beliefs. It was rather embarrassing when it came to light that nobody on the translation committee could read a word of Hebrew or Greek. Even Fred Franz, when challenged under oath in court, had to admit it was all Greek to him.
7 Jehovah’s Witnesses shun community involvement
True, and we also shun our own children, parents or other family and friends. On community involvement, check out the November broadcast on our TV evangelist channel to see how after the typhoon in the Philippines, we only worried about fellow witnesses – and even at that found it more important to make a propaganda film out of it. No, we do not reach out to the community, except for pushing our cult literature, so as to retain our tax exempt status.
8 Jehovah’s Witnesses look down on people of other religions
True, we even refer to them as Babylon the great. All other religions are false and are controlled by Satan the Devil, but we have “the truth”. Jehovah will soon destroy 99.9% of the earth’s population, only we as true Christians will survive.
