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”

Questions for Jehovah’s Witnesses on the True God and the Trinity – Chapter 13 – Yes, You Should Believe in the Trinity!

1. How many true Gods exist?

  • John 17:3: “This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you, the only true God, and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.” **

2.  Is Satan a true or false God? Do demons believe he is a god?

  • 2 Corinthians 4:4: “among whom the god of this system of things has blinded the minds of the unbelievers…” 
  • James 2:19: “You believe there is one God, do you? You are doing quite well. And yet the demons believe and shudder.” 

3.  So if demons don’t consider Satan is a real god, why is he called “the god” of this world? Wouldn’t you agree that these beings that are called “gods” are not really gods, but are rather false gods?

  • 1 Corinthians 8:5-6: “For even though there are those who are called ‘gods,’ whether in heaven or on earth, just as there are many ‘gods’ and many ‘lords,’ there is actually to us one God the Father … and there is one Lord, Jesus Christ…”

Carlene – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

carleneTHE TESTIMONY OF CARLENE – Former Jehovah’s Witness of 20 years

Growing up in a Christian home, Carlene enjoyed reading the Bible but was spiritually hungry because her questions were not being answered at her home church. When the Jehovah’s Witnesses seemed to have a answer for every question she had, she and her husband were baptized. Serving the Watchtower organization for over 20 years before Christ opened her eyes, she now has a heart to help others on their way out. Continue reading “Carlene – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness”

Betty – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

betty.:THE TESTIMONY OF BETTY – Shunned for asking questions, Betty left the Watchtower for Jesus

Hungry for spiritual answers when the Jehovah’s Witnesses in her extended family convinced her that they had “the Truth,” she studied for four years and was baptized. Once inside the organization, she began to feel unloved and unaccepted. Why? Was it because she found inconsistencies in the Jehovah’s Witness doctrine and had questions the elders couldn’t answer? Why was everyone ignoring and shunning her? Lost, hurt, lonely and confused, she struggled, “Where do I go? There is no other place for me to go!” Serving God alone was NOT an option! Finally, Betty turned to Jehovah and asked Him where He wanted her to go. It was then, with the conviction of the Holy Spirit and the help of loving Christian friends, that Jehovah led her to the real TRUTH – Jesus Himself.

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.

Jean – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

jean.: JEAN – Why I left Jehovah’s Witnesses

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!

How to Witness Effectively to Jehovah’s Witnesses

HOW TO WITNESS EFFECTIVELY TO JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES – Breaking the Watchtower Barrier Step-by-Step

When Jehovah’s Witnesses come to your door offering Watchtower and Awake! magazines, their only goal is to get you interested enough in their religion to consider becoming one of them.

They are not visiting you to consider your spiritual beliefs as viable options for their lives. No! They believe they already possess “the Truth.” So, in their minds, they don’t think you have anything to offer them. Their only purpose in being at your door is to teach you; not you them. So, how can a Christian get through to a Jehovah’s Witness who believes he or she already has all the answers? Continue reading “How to Witness Effectively to Jehovah’s Witnesses”

The Holy Spirit — a Person or Force? – Chapter 6 – Yes, You Should Believe in the Trinity!

Yes, You Should Believe in the Trinity bookCHAPTER 6: THE HOLY SPIRIT—A PERSON OR FORCE?

PERSONAL ATTRIBUTES OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

“THE Bible’s use of ‘holy spirit’ indicates that it is a controlled force…it can be likened to electricity, a force that can be adapted to perform a great variety of operations.…On one occasion the holy spirit appeared as a dove. On another occasion it appeared as tongues of fire—never as a person.…some Bible texts say that the spirit speaks.…The action of the spirit in such instances is like that of radio waves….”—Should You Believe in the Trinity?, pp. 20-22

We have already discussed how a personal being does not need to possess a physical body in order to qualify as a “person.”  For example, Satan has never appeared in a physical body, yet even Jehovah’s Witnesses agree that this fact does not imply that he is not a personal being.  Yet, the Watchtower Society asserts that the Holy Spirit “never” appears as a person in the Biblical text and discounts all of the personhood texts about the Holy Spirit by attributing the actions of the Holy Spirit seen in the text to being a mere force like “electricity” or “radio waves” and pointing to examples where the Spirit is described in non-personal ways such as the “tongues of fire” of Acts chapter two. Yet, simply because the Holy Spirit has appeared in forms other than that of a physical being, does not indicate that He is not a person.  In fact, the opposite is true as we will see in the following Scripture texts where the Holy Spirit is described as possessing all of the qualifying attributes of personhood: Continue reading “The Holy Spirit — a Person or Force? – Chapter 6 – Yes, You Should Believe in the Trinity!”

Defining The Trinity – Chapter 1 – Yes, You Should Believe in the Trinity!

Yes, You Should Believe in the Trinity bookCHAPTER 1: DEFINING THE TRINITY

WHAT IS THE TRINITY?

The Trinity is the view that the 3 Persons mentioned in the Bible: Father, Son (Jesus) and Holy Spirit are one God, equal in nature and eternal and uncreated in substance. They co-exist, co-create and co-rule this present world and are distinct in their personhoods, yet they share their eternal nature as the one and only True God. Jehovah’s Witnesses deny the Trinity doctrine and argue against the Deity of Jesus Christ based on a misconception of what the Trinity Doctrine is and what it stands for. Below we will examine their arguments in-depth as we discuss their 1989 publication, Should You Believe in the Trinity?

bullets CHRISTIAN CONVERSATIONS WITH JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES—Biblical Answers To Questions Jehovah’s Witnesses Ask

(WDGR Lesson 16: “Your Decision to Serve God”)

What is involved in “making sure of all things”? Is “doubt” a ploy that Satan uses to break our loyalty to Jehovah God? Is the Watchtower organization the “ark” of safety? Where did you learn the truth? Didn’t Jesus say a disciple is not above his teacher? If the Watchtower organization isn’t the truth, where else can we go to find accurate knowledge of truth and eternal life?1.

 

KAREN: Cindy, I was reading in the Watchtower brochure What Does God Require of Us? about what I must do in order to become a “friend of God,”2. and I have a question.

CINDY: Yes, Karen?
