Why do Jehovah's Witnesses call their religion the "Truth"?

Jesus prayed respecting his followers: “Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth.” (John 17:17; compare James. 1:18.)

Those who desire to gain God’s approval should walk in his truth and serve him in truth. (Jos. 24:14; 1 Sam. 12:24; Ps. 25:4, 5; 26:3-6; 43:3; 86:11; Isa. 38:3)

Christianity is “the way of the truth” (2 Pet. 2:2), and those who assist others in furthering the interests of Christianity become “fellow workers in the truth.” (3 John 8) The entire body of Christian teachings, which later became part of the written Word of God, is “the truth” or “the truth of the good news.” Adherence to this truth, ‘walking’ in it, is essential if an individual is to gain salvation. (Rom. 2:8; 2 Cor. 4:2; Eph. 1:13; 1 Tim. 2:4; 2 Tim. 4:4; Titus 1:1, 14; Heb. 10:26; 2 John 1-4; 3 John 3, 4)

Therefore, because Jehovah's Witnesses base all of their beliefs, their standards for conduct, and organizational procedures on the Bible, they can rightly say that their religion (or beliefs) are the "Truth".
