Interestingly enough, this question does not usually come from Jehovah’s Witnesses, but from those who are sympathetic to them. Jehovah’s Witnesses, for the most part, are good, moral, law abiding people. Those who have relationships with JWs are often confused as to why we would focus our efforts on “destroying someone’s religion.”
What is misunderstood about our ministry is that we do not reach out to JWs because we hate them. We reach out to them because God has given us an incredible love for them and has guided us into this ministry. It is love that motivates us to warn JWs and others about how the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society negatively affects people. This religion is responsible for destroying the families of those who leave the religion and for numerous deaths due to forbidding blood transfusions to its adherents.
If this is not bad enough, the spiritual consequences are even worse. Jehovah’s Witnesses are taught that eternal punishment is nothing more than being extinguished. We do not enjoy the thought of Jehovah’s Witnesses waking up in eternity only to realize that they are sadly mistaken. If we hated Jehovah’s Witnesses, we would stand by and watch them walk towards hell unhindered.
