Wikipedia:WikiProject Jehovah's Witnesses/FAQ


These are frequently asked questions by new editors who intend to participate in improving articles.


Q1: Is there a top of the chain authority that I can contact to address my issues with the article?
A1: Wikipedia is community-driven, although there are policies and guidelines. This article talk page is the proper venue to suggest specific changes. Also of relevance are WP:WPNOTRS, WP:CONSENSUS, WP:RNPOV, WP:NOTCENSORED and WP:NOTPROPAGANDA. For non-article-content matters, it is possible to ask questions at the Teahouse or at the help desk. If necessary, we can occasionally request the help of third party opinions through for instance WP:3O or WP:RfC. Consulting the talk page archives is also recommended to become more familiar with the commonly discussed topics and the existing consensus which already formed over time.

Q6: Are the Jehovah's Witnesses true Christians (they do not believe in the divinity of Christ, they do not go to heaven)?

Like for other Christians, the Jehovah's Witnesses consider themselves Christians and we report as such.
