Are these administrators confused? Or is this a break off group from the WTS/jws?
By Sabloo Thomas
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: This year, the General Education Department will conduct SSLC examinations on Saturday nights specifically for the students of the Jehovah’s Witnesses sect.
completely inaccurate "report" JW do not observe a sabbath.
There is a lot of misinformation on Jehovah's Witnesses because they keep flip-flopping and changing their rules dogmas. I was a 3rd generation Jehovah's Witness my entire clan was "liberated" of our financial assets by the Watchtower.
The article is not correct. We don't observe any day as special or particular (and incidentally we are not a sect)
How on earth does information become this badly garbled? It is so far from anything factual about Jehovah's Witnesses that one has to wonder if the entire piece is not a figment of the writer's imagination... Goodness knows, it would not be the first time.
Could be worse ... this "Journalist" could have become a surgeon, and amputated the wrong leg. Whoever he is talking about ... it is NOT Jehovah's Witnesses. I have been from Norway, to Peru, The United States, and all over, and no JW I have ever met in 45 years has ever observed a Sabbath on ANY day.

Wrong Group reported here guys.. As "Fine Soil" stated, we dont have a Weekly Sabbath Day.. maybe Seventh Day Adventists, but not us...

There are several religions which DO strictly observe Sabbath from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday, just as it was commanded in the Mosaic Law code (in force from the year 1513 BCE to the year of Jesus' death in the year 33 CE), Seventh Day Adventists being one of such groups, but Jehovah's Witnesses do not. It would be interesting to know to which religious group these 17 students DO belong.
Jehovahs Witnesses..? You Sure..? In 25 years of association with JW's, i have never heard of such a thing as reported.. Seventh Day Adventists Yes ..

Jehovah's Witnesses DO NOT observe Saturdays as Sabbath. You must have us mixed up with some other group.

Yeah, I think ti's pretty obvious that they meant Seventh Day Adventists. Look near the bottom of the article, it mentions that the students attend an Adventist school.
Sidetrack: Do you believe modern Seventh Day Adventists to be a cult as well? I mean, I've looked into them a little bit and even though coming from the same origin (Miller movement) they are much more mainstream than JW's; seeing as how they observe holidays, etc. They also give back to the communities, have schools, etc. Then again, Mormons do all of that and they are truly loons when you look into the REAL beliefs.

Why do I suspect this 'journalist' was actually a student athlete who wrecked his knee and had to fall back on his major for a career?
