Former Jehovah's Witnesses Talk About The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, aka JW.ORG

Welcome! We are not affiliated with JW.ORG, a.k.a the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania or any other religion. We are NOT JW's! We are EX-JW's.


Trampling Upon The Religious Freedom of Jehovah's Witnesses.

The Watchtower Society has a long history of petitioning governments for the religious freedom to spread their message world wide. Unfortunately they don't believe their own members are entitled to the same religious freedoms, liberties, and rights. Here's what it's like to be a JW and why so many are leaving their religion.

The Deadly Practice Of Refusing Blood Transfusions.

JW's are led to believe blood substitutes are just as good, better, and safer than real blood transfusions. Also if they refuse blood and die, Jehovah will give them eternal life for their loyalty. JW's believe refusing blood transfusions is a test of loyalty to Jehovah. He who tries to save his life will lose it and he who loses his life will save it. Matthew 16:25.

However the false teachers have twisted Leviticus 17 to mislead JW's and test how loyal they are to the organization.

Watchtower teaches that eating blood sausages for breakfast because you love the taste is the same as having a blood transfusion to save your life. Their website as of today (April 30, 2019) says "early Christians would risk death rather than take in blood." (Watchtower Article: "Blood—Vital For Life") Where does it say that in the Bible? Is that a fact or an opinion?

Claiming to follow the Bible in Leviticus 17, this dangerous organization 'cuts off' Jehovah's Witnesses from their families and friends for a lifetime if they willingly have a blood transfusion because that's "Jehovah's" punishment according to Watchtower.

However if you read the entire chapter of Leviticus and not just Leviticus 17:14, you will notice that ancient people were 'cut off' from their community for only a few hours! As long as they took a bath and washed their clothes, there was no punishment at all and they would be 'clean' the same day 'in the evening'. ... Read More

Cult Prepares For The Final Hour.

Since the 1800's, members of the Watchtower Society have feared 'the day of 'armageddon', so much so that they predicted when this day would come several times in order to attract new members to their religious movement before it's 'too late' (to join). The 'take away close' is a powerful tool used by the world's best sales people and Watchtower has always motivated their people using this proven strategy. Up until recently with the advent of the internet, the cult has been able to grow and prosper by altering the meaning of Bible passages, mind control, and creating a sense of urgency before Armageddon strikes. JW's believe they must go to extremes to please 'Jehovah' by giving their time, money, and even life if necessary before God destroys billions of non believers in a fit of rage.

  • List of Failed Watchtower Predictions regarding the day of armageddon.
  • Some JW's believe it's better to die now and be resurrected after armageddon, than it is to take a chance of not making through Armageddon. This is event is so terrifying to JW's that they don't want to go through it and yet they look forward to Armageddon at the same time because it means all their enemies will be gone forever and God's kingdom on earth will be established. Because of their fear of Jehovah and armageddon some JW's have committed suicide and others have chosen to die by refusing necessary blood transfusions.

Armageddon is a day when billions of people, all world governments, and 'false religions' are completely destroyed by Jehovah. Only the most faithful and loyal followers of Jehovah God AND 'His organization' are expected to survive. (See Watchtower Sept 1989)

JW's believe they will be saved because they belong to God's organization. All other religions are 'false' and together they belong to 'Satan's organization'. JW's say they are 'in the truth'. Everyone else is 'out of the truth'. Why? Because they follow rules that other religions do not. e.g. they don't celebrate holidays, birthdays, Mother's Day, etc., ... they'd rather die for Jehovah than have a blood transfusion, ... they 'call on the name of Jehovah' (others do not use this name), ... they shun their family members who are non believers because they believe Jesus used a sword to cause divisions, ... and so on.

Because of their sacrifices for God, the JW's think their religion is the narrow path to eternal life and all others are so evil Jehovah will not only destroy the religions but also the people who go to other churches.

However even the most loyal JW's are never certain of their salvation. JW's worry they may have not done enough for Jehovah or that they didn't follow Jehovah's rules perfectly. They fear God might not find them worthy enough to earn the 'prize' of eternal life. They also worry that they might do something wrong on the 'day of armageddon' which could mean eternal death with no hope of a resurrection.

There are only two ways of surviving Armageddon. Avoid getting hit by huge fire balls falling from the sky on day of Armageddon OR die before Armageddon and be resurrected to life on a 'paradise earth' some time after Armageddon. Resurrection allows them to have new 'perfect' body, and since they are told Satan will be locked up for a 1000 years, it will be easy for them to keep all of Jehovah's laws. Satan will no longer be able to tempt them to sin like he did before Armageddon.

Sadly because of this Watchtower's scary Armageddon teaching, death before Armageddon is sometimes a more attractive option for JW's who are not confident enough they can out run the fire falling from heaven on the day of Armageddon.

EX-JW's Talk About The Truth On Facebook.

Watchtower refers to former EX-JW's (i.e. EX-Jehovah's Witnesses) as 'apostates'. However critics say that the real apostates are the leaders of the Watchtower Society. Why? Because they have rejected the love of 'enemies' that Jesus taught. Watchtower teaches JW's to hate enemies! See Religious Persecution

Instead of being saved by God's grace, Jehovah's Witnesses are promised salvation if they work hard for the organization. They must obey the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses and Elders without asking questions or disagreeing.

The problem is how do you know when you've done enough for Jehovah? What if you could have done a little bit more and didn't? What if you don't believe everything Watchtower teaches? What if you secretly broke some rules? You fooled the organization, but did you fool Jehovah? Did Jehovah see you breaking his rules? Did he see you sinning over and over again?

Jehovah's Witnesses carry a heavy load. After working so hard for salvation, they are never sure that they will be saved. They could spend an entire life time keeping rules fairly well, but if they sin the day of armageddon, they worry that Jehovah may not spare them. They may die forever without any hopes of a resurrection.

Instead of relying on God, the organization has become the path to eternal life just like 'the ark' in Noah's day.

In order to 'keep the organization clean' and avoid Jehovah's anger upon the entire organization at armageddon, Jehovah's Witnesses are required to keep strict rules. The list of things Jehovah 'hates' grows every day.

  1. How many JW's suffer from PTSD and mental illness because of constant emotional stress?
  2. How many JW's have died needlessly because they can't have blood transfusions?
  3. How many JW's have been so depressed that they've taken their own lives? See the Watchtower Shunning Policy

Watchtower Vs Christianity.

Watchtower tells everyone that Jesus is 'a god' but NOT God. John 1:1; How do they know this? What proof do they have and where does the proof come from? Did it come from Johannes Greiber's translation of the Bible? Who was Johannes Grieber and why did the Watchtower Society copy Johannes Greiber's translation of John 1:1 word for word in the New World Translation of Jehovah's Witnesses?

The answer to this question will shock you, especially if you're a Jehovah's Witness.

This video will prove to interested persons and Jehovah's Witnesses that the oldest Bible manuscripts do not support the teachings of Watchtower about Jesus. The source of the following information comes directly from Watchtower literature and the Bible so it is accurate.

If you're a JW, why waste the rest of your life? If you trust the organization, you won't after you watch this video.

Breakup of Families.

The practice of shunning 'apostates' causes extreme depression for apostates AND JW's! Shunning pressures JW's into returning to the organization but causes unimaginable emotional pain. Some EX-JW's haven't heard from their relatives in decades.

JW's are using a symbolic 'sword' to break up families because the organization says Jesus came to bring 'a sword', divisions, and the break up of families. Matthew 10:34 'I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.'

Because of this one scripture, JW's are told that shunning is a test of loyalty to Jesus but this is twisted reasoning and a gross misinterpretation of what this Bible verse means.

Jesus had 'followers'. He didn't use force! He didn't threaten to kill anyone. He NEVER used a sword to intimidate enemies into being Christians! Christians were not violent. It was the enemies of Jesus who were using 'a sword' to kill Christians, cause divisions, and the break up of families.

By using emotional violence (a sword) against apostates, JW's are unwittingly being loyal to the enemies of Jesus! They are rejecting every single principle of love for 'enemies' that Jesus and 'the Father' taught.

Spiritual Darkness.

Watchtower censors information and forbids Jehovah's Witnesses from considering what 'apostates' have to say. Thus they keep Jehovah's Witnesses in spiritual darkness. See Censored Information
