Why Jehovah’s Witness Men Wear Neckties

Jehovah's Witness Door to Door Minister
You have seen them for sure, those tireless guys that come to your door spreading the message of their religious beliefs.  The Jehovah's Witness men wear neckties when they conduct the door to door ministries which surely makes them unmistakable and at the very least non threatening.  With their New World Translation Holy Bible in hand and a briefcase with literature that helps explain the lessons and the truths about God and Jesus they knock on door after door after door with certain conviction.

My landlord is a Jehovah’s Witness, who along with his friends, visits me often.  These guys are most welcome in my home as I am like most people searching for answers and truths in this crazy world we find ourselves in.  I asked him the other day why he and his friend’s wear neckties when they hit the streets.   His answer was as not what I expected.  With great pride he answered quite exactly, The reason I wear a tie is because I am representative of the most highest creator of the universe, Jehovah God.”  I would have thought that the response would have been a bit simpler - like he just wanted to look respectful. I replied, "I thought that maybe you did not want to be mistaken for a vacuum cleaner salesman."    Of course I had to have a little fun with him.

Why Jevohvah's Witness Men Wear Ties 

At bible study, on Sundays at church, at minister school on Fridays and almost every other day the Jehovah’s Witness men wear a necktie.  As one of my landlords fellow ministers explained; in their heart they have to dignify the creator and as well show respect to those persons that they are so humbly enlightening.   I would imagine that they want to be as professional as possible about this and what better way to accomplish that than by wearing a necktie.  It is a serious mission they undertake and the last thing that a Jehovah’s Witness Minister wants, is to look like anything less than a gentlemen with integrity and good will.

Do you hate Suits and Ties

Image from "Do you wear a leash to work?"
Concerning wearing neckties - comment on May 22, "Cant stand suits or ties, I wont wear them even to interviews."  Our post on March 11, 2011 - Ties – Some Men Hate Them, Some Men Love Them

Once and a while I cross the line and become politcal in my opinions.  I am sorry if I offend anyone,  Jeffrey Hunter.

If you love neckties or not, you can apprectae this response.  And no, I do not wear a necktie every day.

My reply:   Everyone has the right to choose what they like or hate. That is what makes the world go around. That will always be, unless the Neo-Cons, the Illuminati, the Bushs, and their pals on Wall Street get their way with the New World Order. Then wearing a tie or not will not a be a big deal - because there will be no choice on anything and life will be basically a big joke.
