The worlds description of us comes from Satan. He certainly wouldn't want them to give a favorable description.

 John 17:14  " I have given your word to them, but the world has hated them, because they are no part of the world, just as I am no part of the world."  The "world's"  definition of Jehovah's people will never be accurate because of their hatred towards us as Jesus true followers and our spreading Jehovah's name and purpose.  At least WE know who we are:)
