Jehovah's Witnesses base their religion largely on what Jesus "commanded" them to do.

Or, so they often claim. They seem to see Jesus as some kind of military commander, and what Jesus said to do are referred to as "commands". And JWs also say they don't do the things that Jesus didn't command them to do. This is one of the two explanations I've heard for why they don't celebrate birthdays: Because Jesus didn't command them to.

Of course, that needs to be taken with a grain of myrrh. The JW religion seems to be largely based on the Book of Revelation, which doesn't consist largely of the actual words of Jesus.
