We are sure that you have some questions about Jehovah's Witnesses and their beliefs. Perhaps some issues are controversial in nature. Michel and I would be glad to answer your questions.Email us.

Here are some examples of questions frequently asked about us.
I put it here for your easy research what we do, what we believe.

Why do the Witnesses call on people who have their own religion?

In doing this they follow Jesus' example. He went to the Jews. The Jews had their own religion, but in many ways it had turned away from the Word of God. (Matthew 15:1-9) All nations have religions of some kind, whether so-called Christian or non-Christian. It is vitally important for people to hold beliefs that conform to God's own Word, and the efforts of the Witnesses to assist them in doing this constitute a showing of neighbor love.

Do the Witnesses believe that their religion is the only right one?

Anyone who is serious about his religion should think that it is the right one. Otherwise, why would he or she be involved in it?

Do they believe that they are the only ones who will be saved?

No. Millions that have lived in centuries past and who were not Jehovah's Witnesses will come back in a resurrection and have an opportunity for life.

Amy,

As for religion, I have no comment.

I like the photos. It's amazing how different people from different religions manage to get together as if they dont have disparities in "Faith". Socializing once in a while is healthy.

True, eva. Imagine, in one room, you can hear a lot of different languages (english, french, italian, german, tagalog, waray, bisaya,ilocano, ilonggo at cebuano!)
thats good also with religion that widens out. Not only within the corner (ones' area or church) that you meet diff people. You will meet a lot of race, and its amazing.
we have lots to compare, weather, food, culture, population, etc etc.
Meron p nga, srilankan, vietnamese, chinese, japanese, if international assembly! I try to find my files photos about them, esp the japanese in their custom clothes ala giesha. Eskayting to see them as Jehovah's Witnesses!
