JWs, who should protect your lives when your country is attacked, since christians shouldn't be soldiers?
Isn't it unfair to expect ''unbelievers'' to do the risky job of defending your lives when war erupts, while you sing hymns and say you're not supposed to take up arms to defend yourselves and your nationals?

We choose not to learn war anymore. A JW will never be accused of killing another JW. We are a united brotherhood. To say that we are wrong because we do not want to kill anyone, really suggests that it is your morals that need to be called into question.

Why don't you ask them that when they come to your door next time? They can give you a more thorough explanation because when you give lengthy explanations here, people don't read them. I will just say that, we ourselves have learned to get along. Are we supposed to take a step backward and fight your wars? If one... More

Speaking of "unfair", it would totally be that are more if someone of your "religion" shot a loved one of yours in a war! There are very few religions that do not believe in going to war.

JWs don't expect non-believers to die on the battle-field to protect them. You see Jehovah's Witnesses are not cowards who subscribe to the philosophy that one should seek to protect his own life at absolutely all costs -- at the cost of killing others on the battlefield. Such a philosophy is rooted in a lack of faith... More
