Jehovah’s Witnesses: Should I Risk My Life for Expired Watchtowers?

Risk Life for Expired Watchtowers

Sadly, for the past 140 years, Jehovah’s Witnesses have been walking the earth preaching that the end of the world is near. In fact, throughout the lifespan of past presidents of the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society, they have published countless books, magazines, and leaflets and instilling in the minds of their members that this information was lifesaving and important to distribute to individuals in their communities. Unfortunately, not one book that was published by a past president of this corporation is in existence today.

In some instances, if brothers were to reference certain material from old publications, they could be reprimanded or even accused of apostacy. Why? Because such teachings are considered “old” light which has been replaced by “new” light. And to think that people put their lives at risk to smuggle Watchtower’s into countries where the work was banned and some 40, 50, and 60 years later, those publications are not worth the paper they were printed on. Too bad that many people died believing this was the truth and sacrificed their lives by using their time to further the beliefs of an organization that keeps on changing like the wind.

This podcast provides some thought-provoking statements that really makes you think about the decisions you are making and to start doing some serious soul searching. In fact, the Watchtower Society keeps its members so busy that they do not have time to sit back and meditate on the things they are being taught.

We encourage you to take a few moments to think about your life, how you are spending your time, and examine the things you are being taught. Do your research…in another 10 to 15 years, you’ll be glad that you did!

Bethelites – Cream of the Crop?

bethelites

In this podcast, JT & Paul reminisce about what it was like being at Bethel and their Jehovah’s Witness wakeup call about Bethel not being anything special. In fact, being at Bethel allowed them to a lot of things about the organization that the average Jehovah’s Witness will never see.

During their Bethel entrance school, they were quickly told that they were not special. So, don’t be walking around thinking that you are the cream of the crop.

They also briefly touch on a few experiences about the role of elders and how the culture of the organization is what drives the actions of those in positions of authority.

Jehovah’s Witnesses: Regular Pioneering and Pioneer School

Biblical Requirements

 

Did you know that Jehovah’s Witnesses have an exclusive group within their membership known as regular pioneers? This man made title is not found in the scriptures, yet they are elevated within the group as being more spiritually minded than those members that choose not to serve in this capacity.

In this podcast, JT, Lady Cee and Paul discuss how the Watchtower creates these titles to make people feel special. In turn, they also create special schools and training events which are nothing more than reading old Watchtower and Awake! magazines and basic instruction they can learn at the local Kingdom Hall.

 

Life at Bethel – Family Night – Episode 7

Family Night-2

Family Night

When I was at Bethel, each year the Bethel Family featured a program called “Family Night”.

Family Night was a variety entertainment show where the Bethelites had the opportunity to showcase their talent. It ranged anywhere from interviews with individuals discussing their Bethel career, regular pioneer service and those in the traveling work to individuals playing instruments, singing and dancing to secular music and everything in between.

Jehovah Witnesses would be quick to pose critical thinking questions to a Bible study whose church carried on such “worldly activities” in the pulpit of their church.  Asking such questions as:

  • “Does such this bring dignity to a place that is supposed to be for the worship of God?
  • “Does this not remind one of what Moses heard when coming down the mountain?
  • “If someone passed by and heard such entertainment would they think this is a club or a house of worship?’

Since Witnesses are taught that the Kingdom Hall is a place dedicated exclusively for the worship of God, imagine any Witness asking these same questions after seeing Kingdom Halls being used in such a manner during their recent International Conventions.

Why the double standard?

Jonathan’s Story: Married to a Jehovah’s Witness

jonathan

This is the personal experience of Jonathan, an unbeliever that meets the love of his life…that turns out to be one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. He talks about how he balances his family life and helps his children to use critical thinking when it comes to making decisions about competitive sports and getting an education to secure their future.

Jonathan is down to earth and handles his family with love and respect. He discusses what it was like when his wife was disfellowshipped and how she hardly attends meetings at the Kingdom Hall.

From the beginning of his marriage until today, he has observed his wife travel the slow journey away from the Watchtower. She has never vocalized any doubts, but he can see them manifest in her behavior. His wife went from 100% meeting attendance to going 1 or 2 times a month. She no longer socializes with any Jehovah’s Witnesses outside of the congregation meetings, and all of her close family friends are now non-believers.” He believes his wife will take the final step in the near future, but since her mom is still a Witness, this is what he believes is driving his wife to stay.

In this video, Jonathan discusses:

  • How he met his wife
  • Objective morality.
  • Basic understanding of right and wrong
  • How they compromise on Holidays
  • Competitive sports
  • The importance of education for your future
  • Children’s religious upbringing
  • Raising a family under Watchtower influence
  • Dealing with shepherding calls.
    Dealing with Watchtower pressure to encourage divorcing of the non-believer
  • Dealing with the watchtower hospital liaison committee during the birth of his children
  • Planting the seeds of doubt in Watchtower teachings
  • Slowly becoming inactive in the congregation as time passes
  • Speaking to his children about Watchtower teachings and religious arguments
  • He also relates a personal story about getting a Jehovah’s Witness to confess to a string of robberies.
