Jehovah´s Witnesses

Depending on a way one counts, Jehovah´s Witnesses can be said to be the third biggest registered religious organization in Finland. It has been in public eye regularly during the past few decades, mainly due to its doctrinal emphasis on avoidance of blood, conscientious objection and public preaching. Public opinion on Jehovah´s Witnesses has been more negative than that of other religious organizations. Activities in Finland began in the beginning of 20th century. Nowadays there are about 18,500 Jehovah´s Witnesses in Finland and about 300 parishes.
