Research VAT4956. The October/November 2011 Watchtower articles are full of misquotes from scholars and outright deception. Jerusalem was destroyed in 587 BC, not 607.
Read Luke 15. This is how Jesus taught people to treat wayward individuals. Who did Jesus shun? Nobody. Shunning doesn’t help anybody. If you want people to turn around, encourage them, give them personal attention. Heal, do not harm. Watchtower, heed the warning at Ezekiel 34.
The Watchtower religion has given Jehovah's Witnesses a bad name and culture by fostering many negative traits into the minds of its members, such as:
• Shunning those that believe differently than they do
• Having a judgmental attitudes of other religions
• The idea of gaining salvation through works, which makes members constantly stressed and have feelings of inferiority
• The belief that everyone in the world will soon be killed by God at Armageddon except active JWs
• The death of thousands of their members due to refusal of blood tranfusions
• Breaking up families when one member attempts to leave the religion
Due to these reasons and others, I could not recommend this website nor the principles that are taught by Jehovah's Witnesses. These come to light once you enter into their "inner circle" and become a baptized member, and you can never leave the religion without being globally shunned and losing your friends and family members.
An organization that protects child molesters and preaches false doctrines. Run by a group of old men who have no expertise in Biblical or human history. Blatantly plagiarize the work of others in their publications. The only way to deal with Jehovah's Witnesses when they come around is to nail a board over your ass and run the other way.
The watchtower organization forbids its members to read any material published outside its control. This is a mind control cult by the very definition. I spent 20 years following this religion of hate and fear. Children suffer the most, dissenters are shunned and treated like garbage by family members. Stay away at all costs!
Site for disseminating cult info. Very innocent to the untrained. Too bad the only way to be trained is to get hurt. If you are looking for bible study or a church experience find something reputable in your local area. Not this.
How can a site that promotes shunning in the 21st century, ever be taken seriously? My own mother has to now stop talking to me after 40 years. She is forced to do this. If she refuses to shun me, then the JW organisation will move to eject her from their organisation and she will lose her 40 years of friends.
People in this JW organisation have no intention of putting family first because this JW organisation has decided that there is no turning back on it's own archaic shunning policy. The people who visit this site are mainly Jehovah's Witnesses who have been indoctrinated and brainwashed over years and years. They see the JW organisation (which is run by 7 guys in suits who all decry education) as the tool of some deity in the sky who works through them.
Their policies are detrimental to families. I used to defend this claim based on total ignorance of the facts. I now HAVE the facts. Religion in general is a sham and a disgrace to the species. However, this organisation has some serious issues with honesty and has created a bible of their own using slight changes that alter the meaning of the texts they are based on.
They are liars in as much as their own literature paints a completely inaccurate picture of their history. An organisation founded on weird masonic nonsense and evolved into a strict, non compassionate and dangerous policy holding corporation, containing a whole host of highly paid lawyers who will defend at whatever cost (financial or emotional) their flawed logic.
Do not be taken in. I was disfellowshipped from this organisation and am shunned by all my friends, just because i could not get my head around a god who would create an earth with flawed humans knowing the horrendous mess and pain it would bring. I literally could NOT get my head around it and none of this organisation's elders can answer it. Therefore, i am cast out as a 'mentally diseased' person and worthy of stoning. Yes, their own recent literature that can be found on this site will show you that their view of people like me is the same as the vindictive god they believe to be the author of Mosaic laws that would see me stoned to death by my own parents.
People. Wake up. This kind of website is not to be trusted. Do not get sucked into it's airy fairy life everlasting promises. There is no paradise life eternal. It's a myth. Get on with the life you have and be nice. End of.
