Woe to the Pregnant Woman – Jehovah’s Witnesses and Children

No Children

The Jehovah’s Witness faith has a long history in discouraging its members from having children. Why? Because they believe the end of the world is near and their time can be better spent in what they term “full-time ministry” which entails preaching and converting people to the Jehovah’s Witness religion.

There are countless Watchtower publications encouraging and even suggesting that postponing having a life in this system as being the best course to choose. Thousands of individuals have responded to the call to deny themselves a life until a later time. A time when the world will be transformed into a paradise. However, many have lived a lifetime, never to realize such a promise and have suffered and struggled to make ends meet as they have gotten older and had no one to care for them.

Adding insult to injury, the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society has kicked thousands of individuals to the curb that have served in full-time service for 30+ years. Thus leaving these folks without a leg to stand on.

This video presentation contains information about our personal lives and how we are looking back on our own missed opportunities to have a family. We encourage others to think about the decisions they are making in their lives to ensure they do not make the same mistakes. Try to recoup your life before it’s too late.

Anthony Morris – Sipping on the Sly – Jehovah’s Witnesses

Beer

When one of the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses is spotted at a liquor store located some 23 miles from Bethel, an unknown person captures it all on footage. It’s amazing when you think about the amount of liquor he’s purchasing. Imagine if a local brother in the congregation was caught purchasing the same amount of alcohol. If this brother was being considered for appointment to ministerial servant or elder, the local body of elders would no doubt halt the proceedings.

However, when one of the Governing Body is caught purchasing liquor, it’s no big deal. It’s not that the Jehovah’s Witness faith does not allow drinking. It’s the perception based on the amount of alcohol he was purchasing.

In this podcast, JT provides some insights on how drinking was viewed at Bethel.

 

Jehovah’s Witnesses and the High Cost of Low Education

Jehovah's Witnesses Low Education

Higher Education has been discouraged by Jehovah’s Witnesses from its very beginning in the 19th century.  Even before this group came to be officially  known as JW in 1931, their founder Charles Taze Russell was advocating that even finishing High School had little value and a waste of time.

Despite living in the technological  21st Century  Jehovah’s Witnesses are still discouraging its most gifted and talented youth  to reject opportunities for higher education.  One can only imagine the millions of Jehovah’s Witness youth living during the 19th thru 21st centuries that missed out on dreams, aspirations and fulfilling careers.  Today, many of these persons that are now up in age. They never realized that the misguided information supplied by the Watchtower would land them where they are at now in their lives. The Jehovah’s Witnesses were convinced that:

  1. There was no need to have a fulfilling career
  2. They would never grow old and die

Unfortunately, both of these so called “FACTS” proved untrue.  As a result, millions of Jehovah’s Witnesses around the world find themselves in challenging financial circumstances and decades of unfulfilling careers due to following the Watchtower’s unscriptural attempts at predicting the end of the world.

In this video we will discuss how the Watchtower convinced millions of parents and youths to follow their advocacy on not developing their talents and skills.

This video features exjw’s discussing real life experiences of what it was like either being discouraged from their hopes and dreams by fearing that they would be displeasing God or taking a chance at not being popular at the Kingdom Hall for going to college anyway.

Jehovah’s Witnesses: Free Bible Study? How Much Does It Really Cost?

Free Bible Study

How many times has a Jehovah’s Witness gone door-to-door offering the Watchtower and Awake! Magazines and boldly proclaiming that they offer free home Bible studies. It’s way too many times to count.

They often brag about not paying tithes to the organization and are quick to point the finger and judge parishioners belonging to other denominations that follow this practice.

Yet, most Jehovah’s Witnesses have not taken the time to do any real comparisons to other religions. They have failed to look at their own surroundings and realize that while they are walking around proclaiming that everything is FREE, they are actually investing more than 10% of their earnings to the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society. In many cases, individuals are not earning anything at all and are working to enrich the Society at their own expense, gaining very little in return.

As critical thinkers, we encourage you to do your research about the religion known as Jehovah’s Witnesses. You will discover that from its very foundation, it looks like, walks like and talks like a book publishing corporation.

 

 

Are Jehovah’s Witnesses – Blood Guilty? Part Two

Blood Part Two

In this podcast, special correspondent, Mark Martin continues with JT and Daniel in their discussion on Blood Fractions and Blood Transfusions.

Blood is living tissue. Its not digested and consumed by the body such as food and alcohol. You are transplanting living tissue. The Watchtower, as usual, uses a false analogy that is totally debunked in this video. Transfusing blood into the body is not the same as eating blood because the blood is not digested and consumed by the body. Its like having an organ transplant in a liquid form. Using your critical thinking skills can save your life. As mentioned in the video, if a teaching is right on a Monday but changes on a Wednesday (flip flop) you have to ask the critical thinking questions.

Jehovah’s Witness Women, Second Class Citizens?

citizens

March is Women’s History Month and this video is dedicated to all of the ladies in the JW and EXJW communities.

Women: Brilliant Minds, but why Second?

This podcast features a variety of women from around the world providing their own perspective on what it was like being a female in the Jehovah’s Witness community. They share their thoughts on what it means to feel like a second-class citizen. They discuss everything from being asked to clean the men’s bathroom and being dismissed by the circuit overseer to being humiliated by the head covering requirement.

Some of the ladies stated that they didn’t even realize they were being treated like a second-class citizen until after they left and began realizing the lunacy of the teachings.

JT & Lady Cee engage in real talk by discussing their own personal issues with how women were treated in the organization. Looking back, JT agrees that the teachings were definitely insane.

Most women in the organization fall in line with the Watchtower’s teachings because they believe it is a commandment from God. They become immune to the mistreatment and their mind adjusts thus allowing them to believe it’s normal.

Jehovah’s Witnesses & International Inconsistencies – Double Standards

Jehovah's Witness Double Standards

Malawi Vs. Mexico

Jehovah’s Witnesses are proud to tell others that they live by the same teachings all over the world. Yet, after leaving the religion and doing our research, we discovered that this is certainly not the case.

We can recall hearing about the brothers and sisters in Malawi when the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society initiated a letter writing campaign to the Malawian government in the 1970’s. It wasn’t until after reading Crisis of Conscience by Raymond Franz that we realized that the friends in Malawi were experiencing successive waves of vicious attacks and acts of brutality by savage mobs for many years before it came to our attention in the United States.

There were reports of Malawian families losing their homes in destructive fires, women being sexually violated by multiple men, suffering from miscarriages. Still others were being violently tormented and brutally beaten and savagely killed.

Their offense? Refusal to purchase a 25 cent political party card because according to the Watchtower Society it was tantamount to being unfaithful to God. According to Franz, “the issue hinged on the fact that the card was a “political” card representing membership in a “political” party. Because, of course, to a Jehovah’s Witness, the word “political” has a bad connotation.

Yet, there was an issue unfolding in Mexico at the same time. While the Watchtower Society was refusing the brothers in Malawi to purchase a political card, they were allowing the brothers in Mexico to bribe the Mexican officials by purchasing the an “Identity Cartilla for Military Service” in order to escape military service.
