.:I’M AFRAID OF BEING DESTROYED AT ARMAGEDDON. —What If Jehovah’s Witnesses Are Right After All?

“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!” Continue reading “What If Jehovah’s Witnesses Are Right About Armageddon?”

.: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”

Did Jehovah’s Witness Predict the End of the World in 1975?

1975.:DID THE WATCHTOWER REALLY SAY THE END WOULD COME IN 1975?

“I’ve been studying with Jehovah’s Witnesses for a year and I am thinking about getting baptized, but I wanted to do some research into the history of the organization before I made my decision. Recently, I ran across statements on the Internet that claim that Jehovah’s Witnesses taught that the world would end in 1975, so I asked my bible study teacher about that. She flat out denied that the Watchtower ever taught that 1975 would be the end of the world. She said that a few individual Jehovah’s Witnesses thought the end would happen in 1975, but she said that the Watchtower Society never officially gave that date for the end of the world. I am confused! If the Watchtower Society never gave the 1975 date for the end of the world, why does Anne Marie on your website say that they did in their 1966 publication, Life Everlasting in Freedom of the Sons of God? Is there anyway I can get the documentation that Anne Marie talks about in her story?” Continue reading “Did Jehovah’s Witness Predict the End of the World in 1975?”

Trish – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

trish.:TRISH V

Born and raised Jehovah’s Witness for 42 years, she experienced first-hand the hypocrisy that exists in the legalistic environment of the Watchtower organization. After suffering years of abuse in her Jehovah’s Witness marriage and failing to live up to every expectation of the Watchtower, Trish divorced her JW husband, telling him that he could have custody of the religion, and she was keeping the kids! Living in limbo with no religious affiliation to claim, God in His mercy and grace opened Trish’s eyes to the Truth of Who Jesus really is! Surrendering all to Him, she found the peace and joy she had been looking for all her life, and He even blessed her with a gentle and loving Christian husband to care for her.

Tammie – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

tammie.: TAMMIE – Former Jehovah’s Witness Pioneer

Raised by Jehovah’s Witness parents (her father an elder), Tammie was confident she was in the only true religion. Pioneering in her 30’s (spending at least 90 hours per month), she reported an average of 10 “Bible studies” and placed 100’s of Watchtower magazines and books monthly. As a skilled debator, Tammie gave frequent “talks” and “demonstrations” at Theocratic Ministry School from age 7. She was considered the model “Witness” by her family and friends, until the conditional love she had embraced failed and everything in her life fell apart. Only in Christ, did Tammie find what she had been looking for. Continue reading “Tammie – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness”

Jason – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

.:THE TESTIMONY OF JASON – How God Rescued Me and My Family

The Watchtower theology of living forever on earth was most appealing to Jason. He and his wife Jenny were baptized as Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1994 and proceeded to raise their four children in the strict treadmill of Watchtower activity. Witnessing many injustices meted out by the elders upon congregation members, Jason and Jenny began to see the absolute control the organization has over its members. In the midst of the pressure, Jason pondered Jesus’ words at Matthew 11:28 and asked, “What is wrong with me? I don’t feel this refreshment that Jesus promised.” Seeking answers, they turned to the Bible and the testimonies of Ex-Witnesses. Finding true freedom in Christ, Jason, Jenny and their four children are now free at last!

.:THE TESTIMONY OF DAVID H. – Former Jehovah’s Witness elder who was involved 49 years

Raised as a Jehovah’s Witness in England and spending 49 years as a Watchtower captive, David and his wife Christine left to find true freedom in Christ. Going where the “need was great,” David had served in a number of leadership capacities within the organisation, only to find his efforts rewarded with unjustified shunning and a genuine “lack of love” among the “brothers” and “sisters” of the congregation. Only in a personal relationship with the Jesus, did David and his wife find what they had been longing for all their lives.

.: ANNE MARIE – Disfellowshipped but Saved by Jehovah!

You might have seen her in the Kingdom Hall. You know that young, pretty sister with “all those kids.” The one who struggled to raise her children “in the truth” alone. The one who was rarely considered as “wife material” because she was “damaged goods.” Disfellowshipped for being raped, Anne Marie finally felt free… How could this be? Had she not been taught since age five that the Watchtower organization was “the Truth”? Finally, she found the real truth behind “the truth” and found joy in Christ that she had longed for all her life.

.: ALLISON – Childhood Nightmares of Armageddon and a father who was a Presiding Overseer made her look to Jesus for love.

Growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness, Allie remembers having frightening nightmares about Armageddon. In her dreams, people were dying right in front of her and she never felt she was good enough for Jehovah. Her father, a Presiding Overseer, did not have time for his family. Rather, his children were made to perform in the organization to make him look good. Finding more love and acceptance among her friends outside the organization, she left to find a REAL family who loves her unconditionally.

Dennis – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

 .:DENNIS – Fear of Armageddon led him out of the Watchtower

Growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness, the biggest fear that drove Dennis to conform to Watchtower standards was the fear that God’s battle of “Armageddon” would come and destroy him if he wasn’t faithful enough. Years of striving to make himself acceptable to God and serving in many leadership roles in the organization left Dennis feeling like a hypocrite. His conscience simply would not permit him to support the unloving policies he was witnessing in the Watchtower organization. How could he continue to wear the façade of being a loyal Jehovah’s Witness when he was not one in his heart? Leaving his leadership position in the Watchtower, Dennis turned to God and found true love in a Christian community where people are accepted, not because of their performance, but because of the ransom sacrifice Jesus Christ applied to all who place their trust in Him alone for eternal life.

The quality of his life was destroyed by the Jehovah’s Witness religion he was born and raised under. As a young man, Jehovah’s Witnesses told him that he would not grow old enough to need higher education to pursue “worldly” careers because Armageddon would come and bring in the new Paradise earth by the year 1975. He regrets that he sacrificed 30 years of his life for the false prophecies of the Watchtower Society. Thankfully, he found the real truth in leaving the false “god” of the Watchtower for the true God.

Raised in the ridged environment of an abusive Jehovah’s Witness home, Shereen never experienced the freedom to grow as a child in the arms of loving parents. Hours and hours of meetings and door-to-door activity, along with harsh beatings at home over failing to live up to smallest expectation of her parents left Shereen with no hope of surviving. After a failed attempt at suicide, Shereen finally found help in the hands of a trained counselor.

Will the “Great Crowd” be on Earth when Armageddon breaks out?

WILL THE “GREAT CROWD” BE ON EARTH WHEN ARMAGEDDON BREAKS OUT?

Revelation 7:9, 15: “…look! a great crowd, which no man was able to number, out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues, standing before the throne and before the Lamb…That is why they are before the throne of God; and they are rendering him sacred service day and night in his temple…” —New World Translation

For years, Jehovah’s Witnesses have taught that the vast majority of their followers will resurrect to everlasting life upon an Earthly Paradise and that only a select group of 144,000 followers will live and reign with Jesus Christ in Heaven. These two groups of followers are called “the Earthly Class” and “the Heavenly Class.” The “Earthly Class” is also called “the Other Sheep” of John 10:16 and “the Great Crowd” of Revelation 7:9, while the “Heavenly Class” is called “the Little Flock” of Luke 12:32, “the Anointed Class” of 2 Corinthians 1:21-22 and “the 144,000” of Revelation chapters 7 and 14.  These terms are used frequently to reinforce this two-class structure of the Watchtower belief system.
