    So when the voice from heaven commands: “Get out of her,” there is somewhere to go. (Revelation 18:4) There are people, worshipers of the true God, Jehovah, to whom you can flee. Millions have fled. Known as Jehovah’s Witnesses, they make up an international Christian brotherhood, organized in over 78,600 congregations, and are now experiencing the largest growth in their history. They have baptized over 1,200,000 people in the past four years! Before baptism, all of these had completed a spiritually stimulating course of Bible study, enabling them to make a personal, well-founded decision to resign from all former attachment to any other religion.—Zephaniah 2:2, 3.

    If you have not as yet attended a meeting of Jehovah’s Witnesses at one of their Kingdom Halls, why not do so this week? You may well be favorably impressed with what you see and hear. And if you want to understand the Bible, why not ask one of Jehovah’s Witnesses to study it with you, as millions of others have done? If your prayer is for the true understanding of God’s Word along with a way of life that is in harmony with that Word, you will find the answer to your prayer.

    Your favorite answer is trash. The basic difference is their ego is 100 times that of most other religions. I knew a JW in my personal life, so I have first hand experience.

    “Does religion unite or divide us?” That question was posed to the readers of The Sydney Morning Herald. Of those who responded, the vast majority​—some 89 percent—​felt that religion divides us.

    Many who claimed to serve God, the apostle Paul said: “I bear them witness that they have a zeal for God, but not according to accurate knowledge.” What was the problem? “Because of not knowing the righteousness of God,” Paul said, they were “seeking to establish their own.” (Romans 10:2, 3) Lacking accurate knowledge of what God wanted them to do, their zeal​—and faith—​were really in vain.​—Matthew 7:21-23.

    Jehovah is described as “the God of truth,” and he said of himself: “I do not change.” (Psalm 31:5; Malachi 3:6) About God, Jesus said: “Your word is truth.” (John 17:17) That truth is revealed in the divinely inspired Scriptures, the Bible. It instructs us and equips us “for every good work.”​—2 Timothy 3:16, 17.

    Just to mention one that has not already been stated. The gospel message the JWs go around preaching is about how to survive Armageddon and live on a paradise Earth - by becoming a baptized JW who conforms to all the requirements for how they are to live, what they are to believe and what they are to do as set out for them by their Governing Body. Of course, they don't tell people that last bit until they've got them reeled in with the idea of bliss on Earth.

    The Bible gospel is about Jesus Christ dying for our sins and being resurrected as proof that He truly is the unique Son of God. It requires people to repent of their sins and trust only in the finished work of Christ, not in what 8 or 10 men in America tell them. The biblical gospel is about the righteousness of God demonstrated at Golgotha, but JWs have never seen that because they are so full of their own supposed righteousness in being good JWs.

    No point in going on, as the Asker is a JW and will select a JW answer as BA, probably a cut-and-paste job from Governing Body literature.

  • Jehovah's Witnesses will survive Armageddon because they trust in Jehovah God and exercise faith in Jesus Christ and do Jehovah's will. And when the Great Tribulation arrives followed by Armageddon, Jehovah said they will know it is him doing these things. I would suppose because everyone will see he is protecting his people while everything else is being destroyed.

    Just a matter of what false beliefs they teach, compared to other manmade religions.

    Nothing.  Religion as a whole is nothing more than an assumed conclusion based on suspect claims from dubious sources supported by logical fallacies nested within circular reasoning bringing you back to the assumed conclusion. It is dishonest to assert as fact that which is not evidently true.  Yet that is what religion does.  It tries very hard to assert as fact things that we already know are not true or even possible.  Not one single person in human history has EVER provided proof and evidence of a deity.......... ANY deity.  Religion is nothing more than a collection of ancient tales, fables, stories, mythology, superstitious nonsense and woo woo left over from a time when humans did not know anything about the world around them or how it worked.
