In this podcast, JT & Paul (two former elders & Bethelites) unite in their discussion about the Jehovah’s Witness leadership, the Governing Body and how they will do anything to maintain their reputation. They bend the law every which way they can even using semantics (word games) and evading questions by making false statements to the point of even misleading the courts.
JT & Paul discuss the current lawsuits and briefly touch on the issues associated with the Australian Royal Commission.
In this podcast, Paul, a former elder & Bethelite from Toronto, Canada shares his experiences about what it was like serving at three Watchtower branches (Toronto, Haiti & the Dominican Republic). He recounts several heartbreaking stories geared to help you to use critical thinking after making simple comparisons about the love and concern Jesus Christ showed his fellowmen to that of the Governing Body and their man made rules.
What makes this interview interesting is his approach to working with and encouraging individuals to step back and truly examine how the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society teaches its members to treat others. He takes an up close look at the Bible and the manner in which Jesus dealt with those in need of assistance and discovers that the Watchtower is severely lacking in their approach to helping others.
During his time living abroad, Paul had the opportunity to work with individuals in third world countries where they do not have the same luxuries as those living in Western lands. In these countries, the laws are different, and females are not treated with dignity or respect. Yet, the Watchtower does not take this into consideration thus leaving such innocent victims to fend for themselves by cutting them off from the congregation.
Paul shows his compassionate side and uses basic reasoning to help you think about your choices and whether or not the Watchtower is really an organization where you should place your trust. At the end of the day, you must ask yourself, “is the Watchtower following the way of Christ” or are they more pharisaical in their approach to enforcing their man made laws.
We invite you to take the opportunity to listen to what Paul says in this podcast and make an honest assessment about your life and beliefs.
In this podcast, JT discusses the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the latest lawsuits – yes, their day of reckoning has come – the lawsuits are flooding in. They can create all the corporations they want, but the Governing body will be held accountable for their actions and the law cometh for them. They are no better than the religions they condemn.
This video discusses the vow of poverty and how it affects those in full-time service and the impact it has for many individuals that live in areas and what happens when they do not pay into social security.
Is there anything wrong with taking a vow of poverty? No! However, the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society is guilty of hypocrisy for condemning other religious denominations for instituting such an arrangement. Why? Because when they discovered they could take certain tax breaks for doing the same thing, they decided to set up their own vow of poverty system – Worldwide Order of Special Full-Time Servants of Jehovah’s Witnesses Unfortunately, such vows did not benefit the Bethelites and other individuals in full-time service.
n fact, when it was convenient, the Watchtower dismissed thousands of Bethelites from their assignments. Many of them were released after serving upwards of 30+ years at Bethel.
One couple was so excited about being accepted to Bethel and after selling their home, donated the money from the sale of their home to the Watchtower Society. Sadly, they were part of the massive layoff of 1,000+ Bethelites.
In this video, JT & Lady Cee join their voices with Arc Ripley of Arglue to Collaborate on the topic of Jehovah’s Witnesses and Collective Narcissism.
We discuss the top three things that identify the Jehovah’s Witnesses as collective narcissists:
1) Persecution Complex
2) Belief that they are the only true religion
3) They believe they are the center of attention
Arc is a fellow YouTuber from a different community that focuses a lot of videos on the topic of Narcissism. He is not affiliated with Jehovah’s Witnesses thus offers an outsiders perspective on the traits of Narcissistic traits.
Narcissism is the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of one’s idealised self image and attributes. The term originated from Greek mythology, where the young Narcissus fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water.
Collective narcissism (or group narcissism) extends the concept of individual narcissism onto the social level of self. It is a tendency to exaggerate the positive image and importance of a group the individual belongs to – i.e. the ingroup.
