Who Are in Jehovah’s Congregation?

In the Friday, December 11, 2020 day text (Examining the Scriptures Daily), the message was that we must never stop praying to Jehovah and that “we need to listen to what Jehovah tells us through his Word and organization.” The text was from Habakkuk 2:1, which reads,...

“’Not by a military force, nor by power, but by my spirit,’ says Jehovah of armies.” – Zechariah 4:6  [Study 43 From ws 10/20 p.20 December 21 – December 27, 2020] Noticing that “organization” is cited 16 times in this article (17 paragraphs & preview) and is not...

Am I Really An Apostate?

Until I attended JW meetings, I had never thought or heard about apostasy.  I therefore wasn’t clear how one became an apostate.  I have heard it mentioned often at JW meetings and knew it wasn’t something you wanted to be, just by the way it is said. However, I did...

Guard What Has Been Entrusted to You

“Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to you.”—1 Timothy 6:20  [Study 40 from ws 09/20 p.26 November 30 – December 06, 2020] Paragraph 3 claims “Jehovah has favored us with an accurate knowledge of the precious truths found in his Word, the Bible.” This implies that...

How Does Jesus Fit into my Prayers?

When I was a Roman Catholic, to whom I was praying was never an issue.  I said my memorized prayers and followed it up with the Amen.  The Bible was never part of RC teaching, and therefore, I was not acquainted with it. I am an avid reader and have been reading since...

Give Christian Women Your Support

“The women proclaiming the good news are a large army.”—Psalm 68:11.  [Study 39 from ws 09/20 p.20 November 23 – November 29, 2020] We will start this review by going off at what may seem to be a tangent, but the relevance will become apparent. Most brothers and...

The Role of Women in the Christian Congregation (Part 4): Can Women Pray and Teach?

Paul appears to be telling us at 1 Corinthians 14:33, 34 that women are to be silent in congregation meetings and wait to get home to ask their husbands if they have any questions. This contradicts Paul’s earlier words at 1 Corinthians 11:5, 13 allowing women to both pray and prophecy in congregation meetings. How can we resolve this apparent contradiction in God’s word?

It’s about Time – Chet’s Experience

Recently, I was watching a video where a former Jehovah’s Witness mentioned that his viewpoint of time had changed since leaving the Witness faith. This struck a nerve because I have observed the same in myself. Being raised in “the Truth” from one’s earliest days has...

Unlearning the Learned

It is my custom, after my morning prayers, to read JW’s daily Examining the Scriptures, read the Kingdom Interlinear, when available.  and I look not only at the New World Translation scriptures quoted but also those of the Kingdom Interlinear.  In addition, I also...

“Do Not Let Your Hand Rest”

“Sow your seed in the morning and do not let your hand rest until the evening.”—Ecclesiastes 11:6.  [Study 37 from ws 09/20 p.8 November 09 – November 15, 2020] This is yet another article about preaching, yet this was likely written earlier in the year during the...

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2020 JW Daily Scripture

“So the king said to me: “Why do you look so gloomy when you are not sick? This can be nothing but gloominess of heart.” At this I became very frightened.” (Nehemiah 2:2 NWT) Today’s JW message is not to be afraid to preach publicly about the truth.  The...
