Annual Meeting 2023, Part 7: What is the Unforgivable Sin?

This part 7 was supposed to be the final video in our series on the October 2023 annual meeting of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society, but I’ve had to divide it into two parts. The final video, part 8, will be released next week. Since October of 2023, Jehovah’s...

Geoffrey Jackson’s “New Light” Could Cost You Your Life

We’ve considered two talks so far in our coverage of the October 2023 Annual Meeting of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Until now neither talk has contained information that you might call “life threatening”. That’s about to change. The next symposium talk, delivered by Geoffrey...

Half-Truths and Outright Lies: Shunning Part 5

In the previous video in this series on shunning as practiced by Jehovah’s Witnesses, we analyzed Matthew 18:17 where Jesus tells his disciples to treat an unrepentant sinner as if that person were “a Gentile or a tax collector.” Jehovah’s Witnesses are taught that...

Remembering Carl Olof Jonsson (1937 – 2023)

Carl Olof Jonsson, (1937-2023) I just received an email from Rud Persson, the author of Rutherford’s Coup, to tell me that his long-time friend and research partner, Carl Olof Jonsson, had passed away this morning, April 17, 2023. Brother Jonsson would have been 86...

An Elder Sends a Threatening Text to a Concerned Sister

Are Jehovah’s Witnesses true Christians? They think they are. I used to think that as well, but how do we prove it?  Jesus told us that we recognize men for what they truly are by their works. So, I’m going to read something to you. This is a short text sent to a...

Norway Defunds Watch Tower for Violating Human Rights

https://youtu.be/CTSLVDWlc-g Would you consider the Organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses to be the “low-hanging fruit” of the world’s religions?  I know that sounds like a cryptic question, so let me give it some context. Jehovah’s Witnesses have long preached that the...

The Real Message Behind the Sabbath Commandment

https://youtu.be/JdMlfZIk8i0 In my previous video which was part 1 of this series on the Sabbath and the Mosaic law, we learned that Christians are not required to keep the Sabbath as ancient Israelites did. We are free to do so, of course, but that would be a...

Does Our Salvation Depend on Keeping a Sabbath Day?

Does our salvation as Christians depend on keeping the Sabbath? Men like Mark Martin, a former Jehovah’s Witness, preach that Christians must observe a weekly Sabbath day in order to be saved. As he defines it, keeping the Sabbath means setting aside the 24-hour time...

People React to My Video on the Holy Spirit

In a previous video titled “How Do You Know You Are Anointed by Holy Spirit?” I referred to the Trinity as being a false doctrine. I made the assertion that if you believe the Trinity, you're not being led by Holy Spirit, because the Holy Spirit wouldn't lead you into...

How Do You Know You Are Anointed with Holy Spirit?

I get e-mails regularly from fellow Christians who are working their way out of the Organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses and finding their path back to Christ and through him to our Heavenly Father, Yahweh. I try my best to answer every e-mail I get because we are all...

What Bible Translation Is Most Accurate?

https://youtu.be/kaE6ATdyNo8 From time to time, I get asked to recommend a Bible translation. Often, it’s ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses who ask me because they have come to see how flawed the New World Translation is.  To be fair, while the Witness Bible has its flaws, it...

How Is Prayer Different for the Children of God?

https://youtu.be/U3tSnCJjsAU Following the release in English and Spanish of my last video on the question of whether or not it’s proper to pray to Jesus, I got a fair bit of pushback.  Now, I expected that from the Trinitarian movement because, after all, to...

Is it Wrong to Pray to Jesus Christ?

https://youtu.be/2tBPpHVLmBE Hello everyone! I’m often asked whether it is proper for us to pray to Jesus Christ. It’s an interesting question. I’m sure that a Trinitarian would answer: “Of course, we should pray to Jesus.  After all, Jesus is God.” Given that logic,...

Stephen Lett Speaks with the Voice of a Stranger

https://youtu.be/T1Qhpcpx740 This video will focus on the September 2022 monthly broadcast of Jehovah’s Witnesses presented by Stephen Lett of the Governing Body. The goal of their September broadcast is to convince Jehovah’s Witnesses to turn a deaf ear to anyone who...

PIMO No More: Confessing Christ Before Men

  https://youtu.be/b19_Uc2r99o (This video is aimed specifically at Jehovah's Witnesses, so I will be using the New World Translation all the time unless otherwise stated.) The term PIMO is of recent origin and was coined by Jehovah’s Witnesses who find...

Shunned for Studying the Bible

https://youtu.be/WVVpLWAlJDU This video exposes the true nature of the Organization's campaign to suppress any challenge to the authority of the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses.

The Lord’s Supper: Remembering Jesus The Way He Wanted Us To!

https://youtu.be/DqWVMF-5YQU The Lord’s Evening Meal: Remembering our Lord as He Wanted Us To! My sister who lives in Florida hasn't been going to meetings at the Kingdom hall for over five years. In all that time, no one from her former congregation has visited her...

How Can We Be Saved by Going Through the Flames?

https://youtu.be/4sl_i7mCvjo Jesus told his disciples that he would send the spirit and the spirit would guide them into all the truth. John 16:13 Well, when I was a Jehovah’s Witness, it wasn’t the spirit that guided me but the Watch Tower corporation. As a...

The Trinity: Given by God or Sourced by Satan?

https://youtu.be/KHn66Af8C2c Each time I’ve released a video on the Trinity – this will be the fourth one – I get people commenting that I don’t really understand the Trinity doctrine. They are right. I don’t understand it. But here’s the thing: Each time someone has...

Geoffrey Jackson Invalidates the 1914 Presence of Christ

In my last video, “Geoffrey Jackson’s New Light Blocks Entry into God’s Kingdom” I analyzed the talk presented by Governing Body member, Geoffrey Jackson, in the 2021 annual meeting of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. Jackson was releasing “new light” on the...

Geoffrey Jackson’s New Light Blocks Entry into God’s Kingdom

https://youtu.be/b7WoFbjV7HY Within hours of the closing of the 2021 Annual Meeting of the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society, a kind viewer forwarded me the entire recording. I know other YouTube channels got the same recording and produced exhaustive reviews of the...

Saving Humanity Part 6: Understanding God’s Love

https://youtu.be/b520Yo4QGMk In the previous video of this series titled “Saving Humanity, Part 5: Can we Blame God for our Pain, Misery, and Suffering?" I said that we would begin our study concerning the salvation of humanity by going back to the beginning and...

Is There Proof That the Holy Spirit has Left JW.org?

https://youtu.be/HfnphQ229fk I don't have time to comment on all the mistakes the Watchtower Society makes in its publications, but every now and then something catches my eye and I cannot, in good conscience, overlook it. People are trapped in this organization...

Learning From the Travesty of My Own Judicial Committee Appeal

https://youtu.be/de5kvDguhK0 The purpose of this video is to provide a little bit of information to assist those who are seeking to leave the organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Your natural desire will be to preserve, if possible, your relationship with your family...

Saving Humanity, Part 2: Life and Death, Your View or God’s?

Jehovah God created life. He also created death. Now, if I want to know what life is, what life represents, does it not make sense to go first to the one who created it? The same can be said for death. If I want to know what death is, what it consists of, would not...

What Does It Mean to Be “Born Again”?

When I was a Jehovah’s Witness, I engaged in preaching from door-to-door.  On many occasions I encountered Evangelicals who would challenge me with the question, “Are you born again?” Now to be fair, as a witness I really didn’t understand what it meant to be born...

Saving Humanity, Part 1: 2 Deaths, 2 Lifes, 2 Resurrections

A few weeks ago, I got the results of a CAT scan in which it was revealed that the aortic valve in my heart has created a dangerous aneurysm. Four years ago, and only six weeks after my wife passed away from cancer, I had open-heart surgery—specifically, a Bentall...

Mercy Triumphs Over Judgment

https://youtu.be/D6t04qhfEPA In our last video, we studied how our salvation depends on our willingness not only to repent of our sins but also on our readiness to forgive others who repent of the wrongs they have committed against us. In this video, we are going to...

Do We Have to Forgive Everybody to Be Saved?

https://youtu.be/ukjhzuj-eQo We have all been hurt by someone in our life.  The hurt may be so severe, the betrayal so devastating, that we can never imagine being able to forgive that person.  This can pose a problem for true Christians because we are supposed to...

The Existence of the Logos Disproves the Trinity

https://youtu.be/O_5_OqnnF6M In my last video on the Trinity, we examined the role of Holy Spirit and determined that whatever it actually is, it is not a person, and so could not be the third leg in our three-legged Trinity stool.  I got a lot of staunch defenders of...

How Did the Bible Come to Us, and Is It Truly the Word of God?

https://youtu.be/v_-xlptNL1U Eric Wilson: Welcome.  There are many who after leaving the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses lose all faith in God and doubt that the Bible contains his word to guide us to life. This is so sad because the fact that men have misled us...

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?

The Role of Women in the Christian Congregation (Part 1): Introduction

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.

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:
https://www.jw.org/finder?docid=1011214&item=pub-jwb_202009_11_VIDEO&wtlocale=E&appLanguage=E&prefer=content

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?

The Judicial System of Jehovah’s Witnesses: From God or Satan?

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.

Media, Money, Meetings, and Me

https://youtu.be/rh0rmzixuhs 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...

Examining the Trinity: Part 1, What does history teach us?

Eric: Hello, my name is Eric Wilson. The video you are about to see was recorded several weeks ago, but due to illness, I was not able to complete it until now.  It will be the first of several videos analyzing the doctrine of the Trinity. I’m doing the video with Dr....

What is your Thorn in the Flesh?

I was just reading 2 Corinthians where Paul talks about being afflicted with a thorn in the flesh.  Do you remember that part?  As a Jehovah’s Witness, I was taught that he was likely referring to his bad eyesight.  I never liked that interpretation.  It just seemed...

Conspiracy Theories and the Great Trickster

Hello everyone. I’ve been getting emails and comments asking what has happened to the videos. Well, the answer is quite simple. I’ve been sick, so production has fallen off.  I’m better now.  Don’t worry. It wasn’t COVID-19, just a case of Shingles.  Apparently, I had...

Examining Matthew 24, Part 13: The Parable of the Sheep and the Goats

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.

Examining Matthew 24, Part 12: The Faithful and Discreet Slave

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.

Examining Matthew 24, Part 11: The Parables from the Mount of Olives

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.

Examining Matthew 24, Part 10: The Sign of Christ’s Presence

Welcome back. This is part 10 of our exegetical analysis of Matthew 24. Up to this point, we have spent a lot of time cutting away all the false teachings and false prophetic interpretations that have done so much damage to the faith of millions of sincere and...
