  • I'm not sure what you are implying by asking that question. But let me enlighten you Im a jw and yes i do my ministry(door to door work) but i have also given money donations to charities and still do. I have also worked voluntary in charity shops too.
    So im sorry if i disappoint you or your view into thinking we were being unchristian if we didnt.

  • I just wasn't sure. If it was allowed by the religon or not. Most chruchs have help to those who cannot afford bills or meals for the homeless or other charitable things. I was never sure if JW's did such things.

  • It is all our responsibility as christians to help each other out within the christian congregation. But equally if i saw my neighbour in need i would help them also. How could i as a christian stand back and refuse someone help merely because they didnt share my beliefs. It certaintly wouldnt be following christs example.
    Jws as an organisation also help out at disaster areas ie Haiti and Hurricane Katrina.

  • Yes we do, we have a large group of people in Haiti now that are medical personnel and when hurricane Katrina happened, they were there too. They also help out whoever needs. We believe that if you have to give, give. We do try to help as much as we can.
