Jehovah’s Witness Reality Check

Apr 1, 2013 by

jehovah's witness realityI’m going to show you some words and I want you to really think about them in terms of what you feel when you read them:

Murder

Rape

Divorce

Adultery

Smoking

Child Molestation

Embezzlement

Lying

Apostasy

Did you feel the same level of loathing for everything or did one jump out at you more than the others?

If you are a Jehovah’s Witness then the last word, “apostasy”, no doubt triggered a pronounced psychological response of loathing, fear, and repulsion more so than all the others. You might have even experienced a physical sensation of being sick to your stomach as well as your heart beating much faster.

Why?

Why would disagreeing with the Watchtower possibly be worse than murder or the heinous act of molesting a child?

There is only one possible reason:

You’ve been PROGRAMMED to have that response.

There simply is no other logical explanation for the way that word affects you.

Are you starting to see what has been done to you? I hope you are.

Doug Shields is an activist against religious oppression, control and abuse. He has a lot of experience dealing with these issues because he was an active Jehovah’s Witness himself for over twenty-three years. Doug has been privileged to help elders, ministerial servants, full time pioneers and even a circuit overseer to find the strength and determination to face the painful truth about the Watchtower Bible And Tract Society.

    When has Jws ever mentioned in any of the publications that being an apostate is worse than all of the other things you mentioned? I would seriously like to see for my own eyes where and what article that has been stated in. Im sure that you cannot find proof for anything you say

  3. I’ve witnessed JW child molesters, convicted and out on appeal, and they were permitted to be members of the congregation and to go out in field service after they were convicted. I’ve never seen an apostate allowed to remain a member. Have you?

    People are imperfect and if they did do that and repented so what. I’d sit right next to them. I am sure that if this person did do that, the witnesses did not permit them to to be active with anything in the congregation or even in the field. and if they did than there’s something wrong with certain people there NOT Jehovah’s witnesses as a whole. As regards to the apostate thing if somehow you became an apostate and repented it would be the same situation but let’s be honest here has any apostate ever been sorry? Here is the definition of an apostate

    abandoning a religious or political belief or principle.

    And the definition of abandon is

    To give up completely (a course of action, a practice, or a way of thinking).

    Once you decide you want to abandon Jehovah God and his teachings there’s no friendship between them or Jehovah anymore.

    You always mention jws this, jws that or they did this or so and so did that, you bash the publications like crazy. It’s Jehovah god who’s behind all of the publications. God is the one giving people knowledge So why don’t you just take all of your problems to Jehovah instead of holding grudges on certain people in the congregation.

  6. If Jehovah is behind all of the publications then how can there be glaring mistakes and errors in them? How can there be outright falsehood?

    God doesn’t lie but people do.

    They fully programmed with foolish beliefs they refuse to except anyother belief they will refute things going door spreading the word saying the are chosen people by God when asked there reasoning the showed me scripture that merely, “Be a witness for Jehovah” my only response was how is that exclusive to mean your organization only. They couldn’t even give any solid answer to that they very vague in response. I further showed how that could also apply to any person or religion they still refused to except any other belief. I told this why organized religion fail with people nothing consistent with the actual truth even from there directions!
