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.
When men read that the Bible makes them the head of the women, they often view this as a divine endorsement that they get to tell their wife what to do. Is that the case? Are they considering the context? And what does ballroom dancing have to to with headship in marriage? This video will attempt to answer those questions.
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.
