Here are seven powerful reasons why former Jehovah's Witnesses speak out against their religion.
We recall the early days of the organization when Jehovah's Witnesses picketed churches with words like 'Religion is a snare and a racket', and then were surprised when people 'persecuted' them.
Things haven't changed much. The organization is still attracting 'enemies' because they focus on judgment towards people who disagree rather than on religious tolerance. Wouldn't it be nice if Christians could all just get along and not judge? Jesus told us not to judge. Judicial committees and disfellowshipping is not the way of Jesus. Luke 6:27-41; Matthew 5:44; Matthew 11:28-30
Jesus told his followers not to judge. Why did the Apostle Paul disagree?
The Jehovah's Witness try to make all Bible characters happy. They try to harmonize the theology of Jehovah, with Jesus, the Apostle Paul, and the early Christian congregation. This is not possible. The Bible cannot and should not be harmonized.
The entire Bible (as decided by the Roman Catholic Church in the fourth century) is not required for salvation. If you're a Christian, Jesus is the only path to eternal life. 1 John 5:11; Jude 1:21; John 3:36; Christians put Jesus first.
As for the Apostle Paul, he was responsible for the murder of Christians while Jesus was alive and he claimed to be a Pharisee AFTER he converted to Christianity. Jesus warned his followers against the 'leaven of the Pharisees' which is hypocrisy. See Facts About The Apostle Paul
Jesus told us not to judge but surely Jehovah knows better. Or does he? Jehovah is a much different god, than 'God the Father' of Jesus. They are not the same Gods. One required rules and sacrifice. The other did not. See Jehovah vs Jesus
Since all authority has been given to Jesus, JW's would be much happier if they put Jesus first and Jehovah (the God of the ancient Isrealites) second. Matthew 28:18
