Jehovah`s Witness/Give em hell


Hey Derrick,
 Others on this forum can say what they want to about you. But, you sure call it like it is and you're always giving them their fill. Brother, you ought to start your own religion or your own movement.
 Just thought I'd let you hear from a supporter.


Good morning Clem, and great to hear from you.  

Thanks again for your encouraging words.  I don't know any other way bu to do as you said...."call it like it is", because in the end, I will give account to God Almighty for what I did with the truth He has given me.  They may say what they want, and they may think it is personal against them, but it isn't and never has been.  The fact is, their religion has taught them many things that are wrong, and dangerous.  And the truth of God's Word continues to shine the light on those things, and expose falsehoods for what they are.  

As for starting my own movement, I prefer to simply be a follower of Jesus Christ.  Its all about Him.  He became my Lord and Savior when I was 15 years old, and has been my best friend for the 30 years that have passed since then.  

I know they sometimes may think I am "giving them h...", but if they only realized that the desire of my heart, and also that of the other Christians answering in this forum, is to see them come to Jesus Christ and avoid going to Hell.  But I know what you  Some of them have chosen to let hate and anger consume them, towards those who expose the false teachings through the light of God's Word.  I pity them.

Anyway, thanks again for writing with your encouragement.  And please pray that their eyes will be opened to the truth of the Gospel of Christ.

Take care, and have a wonderful day.

I was raised in the religion known as Jehovah`s Witnesses for 13 years. Since becoming a born-again Christian, I have researched extensively this religion, especially their doctrines and their history. I can answer questions about their doctrines from the perspective of Biblical Christianity. To be clear: Jehovahs Witnesses is the religion of my upbringing, though I myself was never baptized into the religion, nor have I ever been considered as a Jehovahs Witness.


29 years of Biblical research into the fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith, and how they differ from the teachings of the Watchtower.

I would advise each questioner to this forum, to carefully READ the profiles of the various volunteers. There are several such as myself, who are not practicing JWs, but will provide you with an accurate and honest answer, regarding JW teaching. If we don't know the answer, we will try to research and get it for you. There are also some excellent practicing JWs here, who also endeavor to give you a factual and honest answer, based on their point of view. I believe by getting both points of view, the questioner can weigh the evidence for themselves, and make an informed decision. Unfortunately, there are also 3 here who claim to be JWs, but do NOT give honest, or well-researched answers. They will tell you only what they want you to believe, and they often hide facts about the history of their religion, as well as print untruths about other people's beliefs. This is done in an attempt to deceive the unsuspecting reader. It can be easily seen who these 3 are, simply by reading the public posts and "answers" which they write. Their posts will normally be filled with personal attacks, and if you question them about some teaching or aspect of the Watchtower that makes them uncomfortable, they will often reject your question, question your motives for asking it, tell you that you have been reading "apostate" sites, or turn the conversation into an attack on another expert. These ones are better avoided, as there is nothing to be gained by way of positive discussion, as they are not interested in intelligent conversation, or honest dialogue. If after reading the forum, you still have any questions as to who they are, just ask me, and I will be happy to tell you. And I can also provide documentation of their willful dishonesty. One thing is for a forum where people from both sides claim to be "Christians", there should never be any willful lying. Such ones only create a distraction in the forum, and provide nothing of any real value.

High School, some college. Studies of God's Word, the Bible, and how it compares to JW theology. I have found my own personal study and experiences to be far more valuable than any formal education or training. The Bible message is clear...Salvation is ONLY through and by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, and no religious organization has a thing to do with it. While attendance at a Bible-preaching, Bible-believing church is a must for spiritual growth and fellowship, no church can grant salvation to its members. Nor is joining a particular group a prerequisite for being saved.
