Jehovah Witnesses Religion
I researched the Jehovah’s Witness religion. There were several misconceptions that I had about this religion before I did my research. These misconceptions always influenced how I interacted with members of this religion when I would meet them. I am sorry to say that I did not always treat them well because I did not fully understand their doctrine, intentions and motivation. The first misconception that I had about Jehovah’s Witness congregation members is that they were forced to knock on people’s doors and witness to them all of the time. This always gave me the impression that they were very aggressive individuals. I do not mind meeting with people in my home to talk about my religious beliefs. Evangelical groups and Mormon missionaries have often visited me. I don’t know if it is simply a matter of style or what, but the Jehovah’s Witness members that I would meet with always seemed tense and ready to argue. I was told that this is the case because they are required to spend a set quota of time each week knocking on people’s doors, distributing the Watchtower magazine and trying to convert people into Jehovah’s Witnesses.
