Who We Are – Ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses for Jehovah

Many who are in the process of leaving the Watchtower organization or are thinking of leaving may not want to think about religion. In fact, many who leave have totally rejected religion. Although our website is affiliated with the Christian ministry Witnesses for Jesus, Inc., we are not a religion or a church. We are a non-profit Christian ministry committed to sharing the biblical perspective on Jehovah’s Witness beliefs and practices and most of our funding comes through individual people who believe in our mission, vision and values.

Facts Jehovah's Witnesses Need to Know about Christmas



There is a historical basis for the December 25th date of Christ’s birth. Justin Martyr (100-165 A.D.) wrote Marcus Aurelius that Jesus was born at Bethlehem "as you can ascertain also from the registers of the taxing” (First Apology on behalf of the Christians, 34). Tertullian (160-250) noted “the census of Augustus — that most faithful witness of the Lord’s nativity, kept in the archives of Rome” (Against Marcion, Book 4, 7).

What are the reasons given for this stand against holidays? Is it wrong to celebrate holidays?
