Countless young children, not to mention adults, have been sacrificed on the altar of the highly criticized “No Blood Doctrine” of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Are Jehovah’s Witnesses being wrongly maligned for faithfully adhering to God’s command regarding the misuse of blood, or are they guilty of creating a requirement that God never intended us to follow? This video will attempt to show from scripture which of these two alternatives is true.
Shawn has been baptized for six years, but is having issues with some of the teachings of the organization. In situations like this, are the elders interested in helping the sheep, or are they more interested in enforcing compliance?
Research into the Greek of Paul’s day indicates that the famous verse of 1 Corinthians 11:3 about headship has been incorrectly translated resulting in untold suffering for both men and women.
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?
Every religion has an ecclesiastical hierarchy of men who control doctrine and conduct. There is rarely a place for women. However, is the very idea of any ecclesiastical hierarchy unscriptural? This is the topic we will examine in part 3 of our series on the role of women in the Christian congregation.
Before we go making assumptions as to what role women can play in God’s Christian arrangement, we need to see how Jehovah God himself has used them in the past by examining the Bible account of various women of faith in both Israelite and Christian times.
The role within the body of Christ which women are to play has been misconstrued and misapplied by men for hundreds of years. It is time to put off all the preconceptions and bias that both sexes have been fed by the religious leaders of the various denominations of Christendom and pay heed to what God wants us to do. This video series will explore the role of women within the great purpose of God by allowing the Scriptures to speak for themselves while unmasking the many attempts men have made to twist their meaning as they fulfill God’s words at Genesis 3:16.
Recently, the Organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses released a video in which one of their members condemns apostates and other “enemies”. The video was entitled: “Anthony Morris III: Jehovah Will “Carry It Out” (Isa. 46:11)” and can be found by following this link:
Was he right to condemn those who oppose the teachings of Jehovah’s Witnesses in this way, or do the scriptures he uses to condemn others actually end up backfiring on the organization’s leadership?
In an effort to keep the congregation clean, Jehovah’s Witnesses disfellowship (shun) all unrepentant sinners. They base this policy on the words of Jesus as well as the apostles Paul and John. Many characterize this policy as cruel. Are Witnesses being unjustly maligned for simply obeying the commands of God, or are they using scripture as an excuse to practice wickedness? Only by strictly following the Bible’s direction can they truly claim that they have God’s approval, otherwise, their works could identify them as “workers of lawlessness”. (Matthew 7:23)
Which is it? This video and the next will attempt to answer those questions definitively.
This is my review of the letter from the Argentina Branch in response to the registered letters sent them by Felix and his wife.
Introduction: Felix’s wife discovers for herself that the elders are not the “loving shepherds” that they and the organization proclaim them to be. She finds herself involved in a sexual abuse case in which the offender is appointed a ministerial servant despite the accusation, and it is discovered that he had abused more young girls.
The congregation receives the “preventive order” via text message to stay away from Felix and his wife just before the “The Love Never Fails” regional convention. All these situations lead to a fight that the branch office of Jehovah’s Witnesses ignores, presuming its power, but which serves for both Felix and his wife to achieve freedom of conscience.
Witness leadership use the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats to claim that the salvation of the “Other Sheep” depends on their obedience to the instructions of the Governing Body. They allege that this parable “proves” that there is a two-class system of salvation with 144,000 going to heaven, while the rest live as sinners on earth for the 1,000 years. Is that the true meaning of this parable or do Witnesses have it all wrong? Join us to examin the evidence and decide for yourself.
Jehovah’s Witnesses contend that the men (currently 8) making up their governing body constitute a fulfillment of what they consider to be the prophecy of the faithful and discreet slave referred to at Matthew 24:45-47. Is this accurate or merely a self-serving interpretation? If the latter, then what or who is the faithful and discreet slave, and what of the other three slaves that Jesus refers to in Luke’s parallel account?
This video will attempt to answer all these questions using Scriptural context and reasoning.
There are four parables that our Lord left us in his final discourse on the Mount of Olives. How do these relate to us today? How has the organization misapplied these parables and what harm has that done? We will begin our discussion with an explanation of the true nature of parables.
For over 100 years, Jehovah’s Witnesses have been predicting that Armageddon is just around the corner, based largely on their interpretation of Matthew 24:34 which speaks of a “generation” that will see both the end and the beginning of the last days. The question is, are they getting it wrong about which last days Jesus was referring to? Is there a way to determine the answer from Scripture in a way that leaves no room for doubt. Indeed, there is as this video will demonstrate.
As hard as it may be to believe, the entire foundation of the religion of Jehovah’s Witnesses is based on the interpretation of a single Bible verse. If the understanding they have of that verse can be shown to be wrong, their entire religious identity goes away. This video will examine that Bible verse and put the foundational doctrine of 1914 under a scriptural microscope.
Matthew 24:21 speaks of “great tribulation” to come upon Jerusalem which occurred during 66 to 70 C.E. Revelation 7:14 also speaks of “great tribulation”. Are these two events connected in some way? Or is the Bible speaking about two entirely different tribulations, totally unrelated to one another? This presentation will attempt to demonstrate what each scripture is referring to and how that understanding affects all Christians today.

A number of exJWs seem to be persuaded by the idea of Preterism, that all the prophecies in Revelation and Daniel, as well as those in Matthew 24 and 25 were fulfilled in the first century. Can we definitely prove otherwise? Are there any adverse effects resulting from a Preterist belief?
While the 2019 Service Report seems to indicate that there is on-going growth in the Organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses, there is shocking news out of Canada to indicate that the figures have been cooked and in fact the organization is shrinking far faster than anyone had imagined.
Was Matthew 24:14 given to us as a means to measure how close we are to the return of Jesus? Does it speak of a worldwide preaching work to warn all humanity of their looming doom and eternal destruction? Witnesses believe they alone have this commission and that their preaching work is life saving? Is that the case, or are they actually working against God’s purpose. This video will endeavour to answer those questions.
