About Jehovah's Witnesses (WTS)
Please don't send us abusive Emails that
attack the WTS. This section is about the WTS;
It is not an official Jehovah's Witness website.
"The worldwide [Jehovah's Witnesses] organization is directed by an
unpaid governing body serving at the international offices in Brooklyn,
New York. It uses the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of
Pennsylvania....to publish literature, supervise global evangelizing, and
organize conventions and schools for the ministry of Jehovah's Witnesses."
This essay is one of many dozens of essays on Christian denominations. It is
published by the Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance which is not
related to either the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society or the Jehovah's Witnesses.
We receive an enormous number of complaint Emails critical of our description
of the Jehovah's Witnesses as a Christian denomination. Many Christians have a
much more restrictive definition of the term "Christian" than we do. Before
sending us a complaint Email, please read our essay on the diversity of
definitions of the term "Christianity" Also
please note that we do not respond to abusive or obscene Emails which
unfortunately form the majority of Emails on this topic.
Topics covered in this essay:

Publications of the WTS & splinter groups:
Three official Jehovah's Witnesses' web sites have been consolidated into a single site at http://jw.org.
PDF files of books, pamphlets and other publications related
to the Jehovah's Witnesses and covering the interval 1872 to 1959 have been
placed online at the "Theocratic Library." See:
"Dictionary of J.W.ese: The unique language of Jehovah's Witnesses" is
online at: http://cftf.com/ The
definitions of common words as used by the WTS and other Christians differ.
There are also many uniquely WTS terms listed.
