Have you ever felt like no matter how hard you try, you’re not measuring up? Oh, you attend Kingdom Hall and plaster a smile on your face as if to say: “Everything’s fine,” but in your conscience, you know that you do not have Jehovah’s approval upon your life.
“ ‘Everyone thought I was this happy and vivacious full-time minister. I was always the one to help others with their problems. At the same time, though, I felt as if I were dying inside. Disquieting thoughts and mental anguish were taking a toll on me. I started to feel alienated from people. I just wanted to stay home in bed. For months, I begged Jehovah to let me die.’ —Vanessa” —The Watchtower, June 1, 1997, p. 24
“I’m still one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, but I have many doubts and questions as to whether or not the Watchtower Organization is really ‘The Truth.’ I’m so confused, and I feel like I just want to walk away, but what keeps me here is the fear that Armageddon will come. I don’t want to be destroyed! I want to be on Jehovah’s side, but I’m so afraid. What if Jehovah’s Witnesses are right about Armageddon, after all? If I leave will I be destroyed by Jehovah FOREVER? I don’t want to die! I just don’t know what to do… I feel so trapped!”
Dear friend, I read your question and my heart just went right out to you! I understand your fear. I really do! I, too, was afraid of Armageddon coming for most of my life until I discovered that “Christians” do not have this fear. Read more…
“I’ve been studying with Jehovah’s Witnesses and I think what they say makes a lot of sense, but before I get baptized, I want to make sure they are ‘the Truth.’ What do you have to say about them?”

Depending on how long you were in the Watchtower organization, coming out can put you face-to-face with some really tough decisions. I know, because I came out after thirteen years—most of my adult life—as an active Witness. The big question for those coming out is:
“Where do we go from here?”
Some jump out of the frying pan into the fire, getting involved with drugs, immorality, drunkenness, etc. The Watchtower Society loves to point to these ones as examples of what happens when you leave “the Truth.” Some others who leave suffer nervous breakdowns—the strain is so great. Read more…
“I’m still one of Jehovah’s Witnesses although I no longer believe in it. I’m so hurt and confused, I don’t know who to believe or trust. I’m thinking about turning in my letter of disassociation, but I’m afraid of making the wrong decision and giving up my chance of living forever in paradise on earth after Armageddon. In spite of all that I’ve seen and experienced that makes me believe that this religion is not “the truth,” I still have the nagging question of what if Jehovah’s Witnesses are right and this is all an attack from Satan to get me to leave Jehovah?”
If you’ve come this far, you may be feeling overwhelmed and deeply troubled about what to do with all the information you have uncovered in your search for truth. I know what you are going through. I was raised as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and spent over 30 years in the organization. Read more…
