Things Jehovah's Witnesses Can Do.

Sometimes we get questions like, do Jehovah's Witnesses like pizza, or can Jehovah's Witnesses listen to music, or do Jehovah's Witnesses go to work, ... etc.

Even though the rules Jehovah's Witnesses live by are strict by world standards, they are people just like you and I. They have personal likes, dislikes, hobbies, and interests.

They are individuals with different personalities. Some for example are very outgoing and the life of the party. Others are quiet and reserved. Some are happy and confident. Others are unhappy and insecure.

They are just like people who belong to other religions except their beliefs are different. Because there are so many things they can't do, it's easy to think that they can't do anything. This is not true. Even though certain rules must be followed, they still have plenty of freedom to decide how they will live their life.

Examples Of Things Jehovah's Witnesses Can Do.

Here are some things Jehovah's Witness can do. It's a partial list. We are confident that there are many more.

  • Love EX-JW's by not talking to them (required)

  • Love themselves, their spouse and children by denying emergency blood transfusions (required)

  • Love EX-JW relatives and former friends by not attending their funeral

  • Love people as long as they are JW's

  • Love non believers as long as they don't criticize the Watchtower religion

  • Obey men (as long as they are leaders in the organization)

  • Lie for God and the Watchtower organization (code word 'theocratic warfare')

  • Talk to non believers when it is necessary such as at work, school, when preaching, etc

  • They can agree with everything their religion teaches (They can't disagree.)

  • Wear loose clothing. (Tight pants are not allowed by Governing Body member Anthony Morris)

  • Restrictions On What They Can Do.

    Of course everything a Jehovah's Witness does must be in harmony with their beliefs. e.g. they can dance but that doesn't mean they can do suggestive, erotic dancing in a public place. They can sing, but that doesn't mean they sing holiday songs. They can drink alcohol, but that doesn't mean it's ok to get drunk.

    Jehovah's Witnesses believe in 'clean' living. Everything they do is in moderation.
