Former Jehovah's Witnesses Talk About The Truth.

The Truth

The Watchtower refers to former EX-JW's (i.e. EX-Jehovah's Witnesses) as 'apostates'. However critics say that the real apostates are the leaders of the Watchtower Society. Why? Because they have rejected the love of 'enemies' that Jesus taught. The Watchtower teaches JW's to hate enemies! See Religious Persecution

Instead of being saved by God's grace, Jehovah's Witnesses are promised salvation if they work hard for the organization. They must obey the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses and Elders without asking questions or disagreeing.

The problem is how do you know when you've done enough for Jehovah? What if you could have done a little bit more and didn't? What if you don't believe everything the Watchtower teaches? What if you secretly broke some rules? You fooled the Watchtower, but did you fool Jehovah? Did Jehovah see you breaking his rules? Did he see you sinning over and over again?

Jehovah's Witnesses carry a heavy load. After working so hard for salvation, they are never sure that they will be saved. They could spend an entire life time keeping rules fairly well, but if they sin the day of armageddon, they worry that Jehovah may not spare them. They may die forever without any hopes of a resurrection.

Instead of relying on God, the organization has become the path to eternal life just like 'the ark' in Noah's day.

In order to 'keep the organization clean' and avoid Jehovah's anger upon the entire organization at armageddon, Jehovah's Witnesses are required to keep strict rules. The list of things Jehovah 'hates' grows every day.

  1. How many JW's suffer from mental illness because of constant emotional stress?
  2. How many JW's have died needlessly because they can't have blood transfusions?
  3. How many JW's have been so depressed that they've taken their own lives? See the Watchtower's Shunning Policy

Breakup of Families.

The practice of shunning 'apostates' causes extreme depression for apostates AND JW's! Shunning pressures JW's into returning to the organization but causes unimaginable emotional pain. Some EX-JW's haven't heard from their relatives in decades.

JW's are using a symbolic 'sword' to break up families because the Watchtower says Jesus came to bring 'a sword', divisions, and the break up of families. Matthew 10:34; JW's are told that shunning is a test of loyalty to Jesus.

But how can this be? Jesus never used a sword to intimidate enemies into being Christians. Christians were not violent. It was the enemies of Jesus who were using 'a sword' to kill Christians, cause divisions, and the break up of families. By using emotional violence (a sword) against apostates, JW's are being loyal to the enemies of Jesus! They are rejecting every single principle of love for 'enemies' that Jesus and 'the Father' taught. Matthew 10:34 'I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.'

Spiritual Darkness.

Watchtower censors information and forbids Jehovah's Witnesses from considering what 'apostates' have to say. Thus they keep Jehovah's Witnesses in spiritual darkness. See Censored Information
