Gloria's Horse PhotographyGLORIA – A 5th Generation Jehovah’s Witness Leaves the Watchtower

She was a fifth generation Jehovah’s Witness. Her history with the Watchtower goes back over 100 years to the time of her great grandmother. Her family followed the teaching of Russell and became special pioneers, putting in 150 hours a month in door to door ministry, traveling from town to town in the Midwest and showing his photodrama of creation. Gloria did not leave the Watchtower because she found out the organization was wrong. She left because she was looking for the REAL Jesus.

I was disfellowshipped. Does Jehovah God hate me?

Shunning

.: I WAS DISFELLOWSHIPPED. DOES JEHOVAH GOD HATE ME?

I was disfellowshipped from Jehovah’s Witnesses. No one will talk to me at the Kingdom Hall. I am being shunned by my family and the only friends I have ever known.  I feel all alone. Does Jehovah God hate me too?”

Anne MarieOUR RESPONSE:

Dear friend,

My name is Anne Marie, and I can tell you with a resounding, NO! Jehovah God does not “hate” you!  It was not He who disfellowshipped you; it was fleshly men, and they are not the same thing.  Jehovah knows what you are going through… better than anyone else.  He knows your confusion, your despair, and your pain.

Stephen – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

stephen .:STEPHEN

Born and raised Jehovah’s Witness, Stephen was tired of being “different” from the rest of the kids at school. Acting out at school and rebelling at home, Stephen was kicked out of the house and disfellowshipped from the Kingdom Hall at 18 years of age. Losing his Jehovah’s Witness family, he turned to drugs, sex and alcohol, had 2 children out of wedlock, one dying from SIDS before he was 21 years of age. Divorced and remarried at 25, Stephen was reinstated as a Witness, but continued to engage in sinful behavior behind the “Brothers’” backs. Life was a mess and he knew he needed God in his life, so he turned to Jesus Christ and found unexplainable joy and peace!

.:THE TESTIMONY OF JULIE – Offers Support to Former Jehovah’s Witnesses

As a convert to Jehovah’s Witnesses, Julie believed she had found “the Truth,” but when she was mocked for reporting a “wolf” in sheep’s clothing in the congregation and told that “those verses” about wolves were “only for first century” Christians, not for Jehovah’s Organization today, she knew something was desperately wrong! At that instance when Julie saw the way elders are trained to cover-up their failures to make the organization look good, her faith in the Society was broken. She was “disfellowshipped” for “apostasy” when she refused to trust the organization over Jesus as her ONLY mediator, and today, Julie is freely serving the REAL Jehovah God in joy and truth!

Pam – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

pam.:PAM – “The Making of a Missfit – A Princess of the King!”

Growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness in a broken home, all Pam ever knew was rejection. An absent father, a distraught mother who said she “regretted” the day she was born, disfellowshiped, Pam felt alone and that even God had rejected her! No one seemed to care, and what’s worse, Armageddon was due to come in 1975. She sought reinstatement, but the shunning was too much for her. When the end didn’t come, she wondered what else they had lied to her about. Pam thought, “I need to find out the truth!” In 1978, Pam found true salvation in Jesus and began a clown ministry. God took the little girl who was never allowed to celebrate anything and made her into a clown who gets to celebrate everything all the time!

.: 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.

.:FRANK M – Growing up with family members who were Jehovah’s Witness pedophiles, he couldn’t wait to leave this religion.

Growing up in a perverse family of pedophiles, Frank’s Jehovah’s Witness childhood was riddled with sex abuse and spiritual confusion. As a child, Frank had dreams of pleasing Jehovah and ruling with Christ, but these dreams were quickly squelched by rejection from his father and the religious hypocrisy he experienced in the Jehovah’s Witnesses. By nineteen, Frank had enough, and he left the organization.

Grace – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

grace.: THE TESTIMONY OF GRACE

For 25 Years, Grace thought she was serving the only TRUE God – Jehovah, but when Watchtower leaders made it mandatory for all followers to believe in 1914 as the date of Christ’s presence, Grace was “kicked” out of the “Ark” (Watchtower organization) because she could not accept this doctrine.

Margery – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

margery

.:MARGERY – Discovering Biblical truths that contradicted the Watchtower, she left for the real Truth.

As a Jehovah’s Witness, Romans 11:25-26 really opened Margery’s eyes. The fact that God still loves the Jews and has a plan to bring them into His salvation was the opposite of what she had been taught in the Watchtower. God opened her eyes to see that in preaching the Witnesses’ message door-to-door; she was persecuting the church, preaching judgment instead of grace, mercy, and salvation. Margery knew she had to leave the organization, even if it meant loosing the friends she held so dear.

Midge – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

midge.:MIDGE – Lack of love in the Jehovah’s Witnesses drove her out of the organization into the arms of Jesus.

For 16 years, Midge was a strong Jehovah’s Witness. Despite the questions she had from time to time, she never doubted that the Witnesses had the “Truth.” But when an elder and friend was disfellowshipped without a hearing, combined with the events that followed, she found herself seeing the Organization in a new light. The last meeting she attended, the words of Jesus came to mind, “You will know my people by the love they have among themselves.” She realized then, “There’s no love here.” And that was the moment she knew it was over for her. She left and never looked back.

Growing up as a Jehovah’s Witness was not easy for Renee as she was hated by her small town peers and had no friends. Marrying a Jehovah’s Witness man and engaging in full-time door-to-door activity, Renee worked hard for Jehovah God’s approval only to find her dreams dashed to pieces when her Jehovah’s Witness husband left her for another man and the Watchtower responded by disfellowshipping her along with her ex-husband on “hearsay” accusations alone! “How could You do this to me?” Renee cried out to God. His answer came in the most unexpected way. She now glorifies God for the marvelous way He freed her in Christ!

Sacha – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

sacha.:SACHA – Brutally abused by her Jehovah’s Witness husband, she was disfellowshipped for reporting to the police.

Born into a very strict and active Jehovah’s Witness home, Sacha truly believed she had “the truth” and served as a Regular Pioneer along with her Jehovah’s Witness husband. But when her husband (a Ministerial Servant) began to physically abuse her in unimaginable ways, she ran to her family and the elders for help only to be told that if the brutal beatings were reported to the police, it would “tarnish Jehovah’s name and put His people in a bad light.” Finally, Sacha had enough of the abuse. She filed for divorce and was disfellowshipped because the elders claimed she did not have Scriptural grounds for the divorce. Shunned by her family and friends, Sacha moved to a new town and met a Christian man who led her to Christ.

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.

As a third generation Jehovah’s Witness, Jean believed and followed every word written by the Watchtower Society as God’s channel of communication to mankind. But as the Watchtower printed “new light” that changed previous so-called “truth,” doubts began to emerge. “Did Jehovah change His mind?” she wondered. When her two-year research into Watchtower literature revealed an organization led by man, not God, Jean turned to the REAL truth, Jesus Himself!
