ned In many communist-controlled
countries, where the witnesses are
severely persecuted, imprisoned,
and many killed. While Jehovah's
witnesses take no part in political
nor governmental affairs or con
troversies, yet through their offi
cial publications, "The Watchtow
er" and "Awake!" magazines, they
have vigorously denounced and ex
posed - godless-communism - as ; a
"menace to the world", and among
the evils to be destroyed by God
at the "end of this world." ' ,--

The Witnesses firmly believe that
we are, now living in "the last
day", and that the destructive
powers of God will Boon sweep
through the earth to annihilate
completely-? all forms of wicked
ness. That total world destruction
is called the "Battle of Armaged
don'', and only the righteous will
be saved from its fury. ,
Putting this belief into action.
the Witnesses have set forht ' on
a well organized campaign through
out the earth to warn all .people
about this, coming world calamity.
Thus, they call upon rich and poor
alike, educated and Illiterate, and
persons of all nationalities and be
liefs, and endeavor to stimulate
and encourage more study of the
Bible and, living according to its
instructions. : '
