Preparing Ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses for Child Custody

Anne Marie.:I’M FIGHTING MY JEHOVAH’S WITNESS EX-SPOUSE FOR CHILD CUSTODY. Do You Have Any Literature I Can Present to the Court to Help My Case?

My wife started studying with Jehovah’s Witnesses five years ago and recently left me, taking our children with her. The Jehovah’s Witnesses are not encouraging her to go back to me even though according to their policies, she doesn’t have Scriptural grounds for a divorce because there was no fornication involved. She filed for divorce and is dragging me into a custody battle over our children. Watchtower lawyers are assisting her free of charge while I am spending thousands of dollarswith a lawyer who knows little to nothing of how destructive and deceptive the Jehovah’s Witnesses are. I am worried that if she gains full custody of our children, the Jehovah’s Witness belief system will alienate them from me, just as it did to my now ex-wife.

For example, the other day, my five-year old daughter told me that she is afraid that I will ‘die’ when Armageddon comes because I am not a Jehovah’s Witness. When I asked her where she got this idea, she told me that the people at the Kingdom Hall have been telling her that I am ‘bad’ because I ‘don’t serve Jehovah’ and that only Jehovah’s Witnesses will be ‘saved’ when Jehovah kills all the ‘bad’ people at the end of this system. I am concerned how being exposed to this kind of teaching will affect my relationship with my kids, and I think this religion is indeed a destructive cult. Do you have any literature that I can present to the court to help me show the dangers of this religion and gain legal custody of our children?Continue reading “Preparing Ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses for Child Custody”

10 Questions for Jehovah’s Witnesses on the Watchtower Trinity Brochure – Chapter 12 – Yes, You Should Believe in the Trinity!

Yes, You Should Believe in the Trinity book

Most objections Jehovah’s Witnesses raise against the Doctrine of the Trinity can be answered by accurately defining the doctrine.

For example, many Jehovah’s Witnesses think that when Christians claim that Jesus is “God,” they are claiming He is the same Person as the Father. This misunderstanding is easily corrected by quoting the Creed of Athanasius, the most authoritative Creed that Christianity has used for centuries to define the Trinity. It demonstrates how the Son is a distinct “Person” from the “Person” of the Father, yet “one God” with the Father:

“For there is one Person of the Father, another of the Son, and another of the Holy Ghost… So the Father is God, the Son is God: and the Holy Ghost is God. And yet they are not three Gods: but one God.” (View PDF of the Athanasius Creed)

So, when Jesus was praying to the Father, He wasn’t praying to Himself, but to the Person of the Father who is just as much “God” by nature as Jesus is “God.” Another misconception Jehovah’s Witnesses embrace is the idea that since “in this Trinity none is before, or after other: none is greater, or less than other,” Jesus could not have said, “the Father is greater than I” at John 14:28. This objection is easily answered by the following statement found in the Creed: “Equal to the Father, as touching his Godhead: and inferior to the Father, as touching His Manhood.” Thus, many of the occasions where Jesus operated under the limitations of His humanity, the Father was indeed in a “greater” position than He was, but this does not prove that Jesus in His God nature is less “God” than God the Father is “God.” Continue reading “10 Questions for Jehovah’s Witnesses on the Watchtower Trinity Brochure – Chapter 12 – Yes, You Should Believe in the Trinity!”

From a very young age, I have wanted to know about God. My stepfather was Catholic so most of elementary school, I went to Catholic schools. After we moved to Utah and my mother and stepfather separated, I attended the Mormon Church until I was 15. Then we moved to Washington State and I attended any church that was close by. Shortly after I was married, we moved to Hawaii, and I started studying with the Jehovah’s Witnesses. I liked the Witnesses because they were the first ones who used the Bible a lot, and I loved learning. Continue reading “Midge – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness”

Is the Watchtower Society faithful and discreet?

watchtower

PDF

At Matthew 24:45-51, Jesus describes two types of slaves (or servants) who were put in charge of their master’s belongings while their master was away. One slave was found “faithful and discreet” (New World Translation – NWT) upon his master’s return and was thus rewarded by being appointed over “all” of his master’s possessions. The other slave proved unfaithful in his tasks and when his master arrived, he was thrown out with the hypocrites. Continue reading “Is the Watchtower Society faithful and discreet?”

Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Shun Family Members Who Leave?

Jehovah's Witness Shunning and Support

DO JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES SHUN FAMILY MEMBERS WHO LEAVE? — Does the Bible Support the Jehovah’s Witness practice of shunning?

A common trait among cults and destructive religious groups is the practice of “shunning” members who leave (disassociate) or get expelled (disfellowshipped or excommunicated) for wrongdoing. While these groups often assert that the practice of shunning (prohibiting all unnecessary communication with ex-members) is a “loving” form of spiritual punishment, many question the validity of this claim. The Jehovah’s Witnesses have a long history of shunning family members and friends who leave their religion and the carnage this has practice has left behind in the lives of many broken families is irreconcilable as the following statement from an ex-Jehovah’s Witness testifies: Continue reading “Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Shun Family Members Who Leave?”

Does Jesus’ command to “love your enemies” require political neutrality during wartime? During World War II, were the Jehovah’s Witnesses as politically neutral in their dealing with Hitler as they claim?

CINDY: Karen, what do you think is the “most outstanding mark” that identifies true Christians and sets them apart from any of the other religions of the world?

KAREN: Well, Cindy, our study in the Watchtower brochure What Does God Require of Us? notes that “the most outstanding mark of true Christians is that they have real love among themselves.”1. At John 13:35, Jesus told his disciples that “by this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”2.

(CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS DIALOGUE)

 KAREN: Cindy, I’ve been thinking about the lesson we studied last week in the Watchtower brochure What Does God Require of Us? In that lesson on “Practices That God Hates,” we had studied that not only does God hate lying, but he wants us to avoid “spiritism.” Since “the power behind all these practices is Satan,”1. wouldn’t you agree that Christians should also stay away from any objects that have been inspired through spiritism?
