What would cause people to be attracted to the Jehovah’s Witnesses?
!Their appeal is made to the fear that is in the human heart
Jehovah’s Witnesses are living under the cloud of impending doom and destruction. According to their history, they predicted the end of the world would occur in 1914, in 1918, in 1925, and in 1975.
Only the Jehovah’s Witnesses have “The Truth,” and only those in right relationship to the organization will be permitted to have eternal life.
Eternal life is not a free gift of God’s grace, but must be earned through faith and good works.
Jehovah’s Witnesses seem to have authoritative answers to life’s problems, and their zealous desire for evangelism gains the admiration of those who are searching for truth.
