“I have been reading Tammie’s story on your website about her experiences in the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
I found it very interesting because I was thinking about converting from a Protestant background to the Jehovah’s Witness faith because I want to marry a lady who is a Jehovah Witness.
When it comes to war, Jehovah’s Witnesses refuse to bear arms or engage in war or conflict of any kind—even when refusing means imprisonment or execution.
Claiming to be a continuation of a first-century Christian congregation, they cite the ancient faith’s refusal to participate in war as one reason for their own refusal.
Confirming this historical fact, states that the first disciples felt that war and political conflict were “incompatible with the love ethic of Jesus and the injunction to love one’s enemies.” They also cite their obedience to God and Jesus Christ’s commands (including His admonition to the Apostle Peter to return his weapon to its place in more than one of the Gospels)—as well as their love of those around them—to be additional reasons for their refusal to participate in military action.
Rejecting anything that smacks of what they refer to as paganism—and without seeing support for the cross’s use in Jesus’s execution—Jehovah’s Witnesses thus discourage the use of the cross in worship.
Though we usually see them walking in pairs around the neighborhood or we have a believing co-worker or schoolmate, few know how international the religion has become in recent years.
