Here are some other beliefs they practice:

  • Blood transfusions are a sin.
  • The soul ceases to exist after death.
  • They refuse to vote.
  • They will not salute the flag.
  • They will not sing the "Star Spangled Banner."
  • They do not celebrate Christmas or birthdays.
  • Their leadership will not allow them to serve in the armed forces.
  • Those that leave the organization are known as apostates. Jehovah's Witnesses cannot talk to them or even greet them on the street.
  • For many years it was taught that Blacks were that color as a result of God's curse on Canaan.
  • Lying is part of "theocratic war strategy." A Jehovah's Witness can lie to someone if they are not entitled to know the truth.
  • Periodically Jehovah's Witness doctrine will change. This is known as "new light."

Are these the guidelines that an Awesome, Gracious, Merciful, Loving, All Knowing God, would give you? NOT!

Jehovah's Witnesses are trained in the art of verbal battle. Do not engage them. Pray first and share the scriptures verse by verse, point by point. Share in stern love, you will disarm them.

But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.
1 Peter 3:15

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
