Tom – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness

Uncle Joe: A Christian Family Deals with Sexual Abuse

Tom – Ex-Jehovah’s Witness Undercover at the Watchtower Meetings

Without any formal religious training or practice, Thomas found himself at the tender age of 19 getting pulled into the Jehovah’s Witnesses and following their indoctrination. Finally, after his divorce in 1975, Tom was able to to be released from the Jehovah’s Witnesses bondage. He now witnesses to inmates in prison who are considering joining the organization and has authored several fictional books about his experiences.

My name is Thomas, and I am sorry to say that I am currently serving time in prison for sexual abuse. God has totally forgiven me for this crime, but the damage I have done is irreversible.

I am currently 68 years old. I joined the Jehovah’s Witnesses at age 19, in 1966, with no prior religious knowledge or experience, and remained in the organization until my divorce in 1975. In 1986, my 14-year-old son and I both gave our lives to Christ.

Up to that point, my son and my daughter had been only attending Jehovah’s Witnesses meetings. In approximately 2000, I was privileged to explain the plan of salvation to my 11-year-old granddaughter, who said, with tears running down her beautiful little cheeks, “Papaw, I hope I said the right thing,” to which I replied, “Honey, you did.” Within six months, her mother (my daughter) also accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior.

I am currently writing a book called, Undercover with the Jehovah’s Witnesses. It will be ready for publication within the next few months. The book’s content deals with the calling I’ve received from God to help my fellow inmates from getting pulled into the organization by witnessing to them about Jesus Christ, and the sacrifice He made for us here on Earth.

Uncle Joe – A Christian Family Deals with Sexual Abuse is a book I’ve already written and published, and although its main premise is what the title implies, there is a character in the book, Melvin, who was getting mixed up with the “Jawways,” a fictitious religion I created for the purpose of the book. Melvin, a fabricated name for a real person, was getting pulled into the Jehovah’s Witnesses here in prison, and I had the privilege of helping him. He is still incarcerated, but since his salvation, “Melvin” has become an extremely strong Christian.

I thank God for Christy and Witnesses for Jesus for supporting this cause by making numerous books and pamphlets, that can be of great benefit to former Jehovah’s Witnesses, available for worldwide distribution at no charge.
