Jehovah’s Witness Pioneer Couple Leaves the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society

 

Watchtower Pioneer Couple Leaves the Organization

Jehovah’s Witness couple, Rashuna and Terrance wake up and learns the truth about the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society. The husband finds out first and then slowly sends subtle hints to the wife but does nothing more than mention certain incidents like the Watchtower’s involvement with the United Nations or the Australian Royal Commission. The husband never pressures his wife, but waits long periods of time before pressing on to other issues. But, since the wife loves doing research, she simply goes to Google to do her own research based on the limited information her husband provides.

This couple is fun loving and very practical in their approach to surviving after leaving the organization. They use their wits from living a frugal life as Jehovah’s Witnesses to pursue higher education realizing that their pay off will come soon. They are teaching their young children to yearn for higher learning and even when one of their kids was not doing that well in school, since the parents left the organization and are talking about the benefits of learning, that child came home with a 3.5 grade point average.

Rashuna relates how they were faced with the blood issue and almost lost their daughter. If it were not for the quick thinking of the doctor, they would have lost their only daughter for a made up religious teaching. She and her husband Terrance went back to their doctors years later to thank him for his heroic effort to save their daughter by submitted a court order. She states that she cried profusely because she does not know what she would have done if she let her daughter die, all to find out years later that this is not the truth.

They are very excited to have learned the truth about the “truth” and are eager to share their story.

Robert Jay Lifton’s – 8 Criteria of Thought Reform

Final YouTube Lifton

In this video, Spike Robinson delivers an exceptional presentation about Robert Jay Lifton’s Eight Criteria of Thought Reform.

Beginning in 1953, Lifton interviewed American servicemen who had been prisoners of war (POWs) during the Korean War as well as priests and students or teachers who had been held in prison in China after 1951. In addition to interviews with 25 Americans and Europeans, Lifton interviewed 15 Chinese who had fled after having been subjected to indoctrination in Chinese universities.

Lifton’s 1961 book Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism: A Study of “Brainwashing” in China, based on this research, was a study of coercive techniques used in the People’s Republic of China that he labelled “thought reform” or “brainwashing”, though he preferred the former term. The term “thought-terminating cliché” was popularized in this book. Lifton found that when the POWs returned to the United States their thinking soon returned to normal, contrary to the popular image of “brainwashing.” A 1989 reprint edition was published by University of North Carolina Press.

How Jehovah’s Witnesses View Higher Education – Amanda’s Story, Part 2

Jehovah Witness Education 2

This is a conversation that is definitely worth listening to because it is one that Jehovah’s Witnesses have never been allowed to discuss. Imagine if all of the congregations in the world could speak as freely as Amanda and JT in this discussion. It really makes you think about the things you are taught about your life and the things that the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society tries to control your behavior.

 

Jehovah’s Witnesses & Families – What They Teach Their Children About Higher Education – Amanda’s Story, Part 1

Jehovah Witness Education

Amanda was a gifted and talented student, her dad was an educator and he discouraged her from going to a four year college while mentoring and supporting his students to pursue higher education. Why? Because he was influenced by the teachings of the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society.
