Why are Jehovah's Witnesses persecuted and spoken against?

Jehovah's Witnesses base all of their beliefs, their standards for conduct, and organizational procedures on the Bible.

Unfortunately, many people have some serious misunderstandings concerning Jehovah's Witnesses. Some people hate Jehovah's Witnesses and make up lies about them because of some misunderstandings. OR some may have had a bad personal experience with someone who claimed to be a Jehovah's Witness, and then unfairly associated this with the entire religion.

But probably the main reason Jehovah's Witnesses are so despised is because they have returned to what the Bible actually teaches and threw out all the trappings and borrowings from philosophies and pagan religions accumulated by most of Christendom over the last 1700 years or so. Since religion is such a personal and emotional thing, most people resent anyone who seems to threaten their long-held religious beliefs.

Whatever the case may be, this "hatred" is actually an identifier of true Christians. (John 15:19; 2 Timothy 4:3-5; 1 Peter 4:4)

Unfortunately, too many of the general public do not have enough accurate information to make an educated decision about Jehovah's Witnesses. The best way to find out more about them is through the pages of their official website:
