[This article has been contributed by Vintage] The purpose of this article is to promote writing songs for Christian meetings. In particular, I would like to sing a song when I attend a communion celebration. On the occasion of remembering Christ's death, we have the...

By Condeming “Despicable Apostates”, has the Governing Body Condemned Themselves?

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?

Kicking against the Goads

[The following is the text from my chapter (my story) in the recently published book Fear to Freedom available on Amazon.] Part 1: Freed from Indoctrination “Mommy, am I going to die at Armageddon?” I was only five years old when I asked my parents that question. Why...

Media, Money, Meetings, and Me Hello everyone and thanks for joining me. Today I wanted to talk on four topics: media, money, meetings and me. Beginning with media, I’m specifically referring to the publication of a new book called Fear to Freedom which was put together...

Not Thinking It Through—Again!

In my last post, I spoke about how ill-conceived some of (most of?) the doctrines of truly are. By happenstance, I stumbled on another one dealing with the Organization's interpretation of Matthew 11:11 which states: “Truly I say to you, among those born of...

A Thought on the Petition Letter

JackSprat made a comment under the recent post on Christian neutrality and the Organization's involvement in the United Nations that I'm grateful for, because I'm sure he raises a view that many share.  I would like to address that here. I agree that the chance for...

In the April Broadcast on, there is a video given by Governing Body member Mark Sanderson at about the 34-minute mark, wherein he relates some encouraging experiences of brothers under persecution in Russia back in the 1950s, showing how Jehovah provided the...

“The number of disciples kept multiplying”

I got an email today with a link to a website out of Italy. It seems our Italian brothers are also waking up.  This is happening everywhere, and it is so encouraging to see so many being called out to the Christ.  It reminds me of this verse from Acts of the Apostles:...

Squandering an Inheritance

This article will discuss how the Governing Body (GB) of Jehovah’s Witnesses (JW), just like the younger son in the parable of the “Prodigal Son”, squandered a precious inheritance. It will consider how the inheritance came about and the changes that lost it. Readers...

Checking the Source

This week Witnesses start to study the July issue of the Watchtower Study Edition.  A while ago, we published a review of a secondary article in this issue which you can view below. However, something just came to light which has taught me to be more careful in...

Stop the Presses!

Stop the presses!  The Organization has just admitted that the Other Sheep doctrine is unscriptural. Okay, to be fair, they don't know they've admitted this yet, but they have. To understand what they've done, we have to understand the basis for the doctrine.  It...

Winning the Battle for Your Mind

On page 27 of the July, 2017 Study Edition of The Watchtower, there is an article intended ostensibly to help Jehovah’s Witnesses resist the influence of satanic propaganda. From the title, “Winning the Battle for Your Mind”, one would naturally assume that the...

Commenting Guidelines

I would like to take this opportunity to share helpful reminder to all, including myself. We have a brief FAQ on commenting guidelines. Perhaps some clarification might be helpful.  We have come from an organization in which men love to Lord it over other men, and...

Salvation by Organization

What did Paul really mean by “the flesh” when he said at Romans 8:6 that “setting the mind on the flesh means death”?

Should You Report Field Service?

As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, are you disobeying God by turning in your monthly field service report? Let us see what the Bible has to say. Laying Out the Problem When a person wants to become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, he must first—even before baptism—start...

The Rise and Fall of

Is there reason to believe that the events of 1878, 1925, and 1975 are about to be repeated? Is there cause for concern?

A Barren Tree

A change in policy is introduced in the May, 2016 Watchtower. The implications are far reaching if one knows where to look.

Evidence of Bias in the NWT

Anthony Morris III unwittingly provides clear proof of bias in the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures.

My 2016 Memorial

I had the joy to participate in an online commemoration of the memorial of Christ’s death on Tuesday, March 22rd with 22 others living in four different countries.[i]  I know that many of you chose to partake on the 23rd at your local Kingdom hall.  Still others have...

A Century-Old Warning!

Could a warning given to Protestants over 130 years ago be applicable to Jehovah’s Witnesses today? One would hardly think so, yet the reality is likely to shock you.

Limping on Two Opinions

This week’s CLAM Book Study makes some ironic application to Elijah’s words. We will see what happens when the application is turned inward.

Mocking God

Is the Organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses guilty of institution civil disobedience?

When Is the Memorial of Christ’s Death in 2016?

There seems to be a bit of confusion this year as to when to commemorate the memorial. We know that Christ died on the Passover as the antitypical Passover lamb. Therefore, we would expect the memorial to coincide with the Passover commemoration which Jews continue to...
