Emails From Readers
I receive numerous emails from readers, both positive and negative. Here are a few of the comments received. By far the majority of emails show gratitude for the website and effect it has had on their lives. They are often accompanied by sad stories of the treatment received when trying to break free from the religion. On the other hand, the emails from die-hard Witnesses can be vitriolic.
Active Jehovah's Witnesses will occasionally make comments that I have never been a Witness and do not know what I am talking about. Just to clarify, I was a Witness from a child until I was 35 years old. During that time I spent 7 years in "full-time service" as a regular pioneer and then bethelite. My father was a Circuit Overseer and I was a close family friend of Geoff Jackson from the Governing Body. I have an extensive understanding of the doctrine and procedures of the Watchtower Society, even more so since I left and was provided with scanned copies of manuals such as the Branch Organization Manual.
Spelling is as in the original emails.
It wasn't until recently that I started questioning whether it was true or not. I am writing you to thank you for opening my eyes wider. I have been on the fence for weeks now, and it is refreshing to know that I am not insane :).
[I] left the 'truth' in 1992. … To this day I have felt fear, and the constant feeling that there is no point to life anymore, after all I am going to die soon at Armageddon!! … Thank you so, so much for your website, you really dont know what I feel like to finally feel free of the shackles of guilt over leaving Gods 'visible organisation'. Thankyou!!
Your story brought tears to my eyes... I relate more than you will ever think. Like you, I hate the idea of being an apostate, and the fact that this is the label we get for "making sure of all things".
Thank you for your bold courage! You are a refreshing discovery on the net. Your prose is not hateful... just sadly truthful.
Would like to say a 'BIG' thank you Paul for your great website jwfacts! You have no idea how much you have helped me and others. Thanks mate :)
I read your entire story, including all of the supporting letters and documents and was particularly impressed with some of the arguments you presented within your second appeal to disfellowshipping letter. WOW! Anyhow, I'm so stunned and appreciative at how much I have learned today and though I can barely keep my eyelids opened at this point, after seeing the photograph of you and your beautiful son Zac .... well, I just couldn't go to bed without thanking the man who suffered through all of this and cared enough to put it out there so that people like me could benefit from it.
I have been disfellowshipped for 10 years now. I've battled with religion and what was going to happen to me for the whole time I've been out. My parents and family have stopped having alot of contact with me. My mom talks to me the most, only because of my 2 year old son. But the biggest battle for me was my fear of Armageddon. ... I just read your 15 minute guide and I am in tears. This has helped me so much. ... I just had to take a minute and tell you thank you. Your website is amazing!!!
The best part for me was to see all of the changes in understanding of the years, many of which shattered the illusion of progressive "new light," and rather showed indecision, uncertainty, and reactionary change. After much study and comparing the quotes on JWFacts to those in the WT (to make sure they hadn't been altered), I began to think, "If God really is in control of this organization, he is doing a lousy job." I couldn't imagine God making so many mistakes. I couldn't imagine God allowing his chosen representatives to make so many mistakes. Holy spirit should be more powerful than this. From that point on, I could never go back. I couldn't undo what I had learned.
Words can't describe how grateful I'll always be of you and other people who have left the JW, but contribute in helping others see facts for what they really are. Leaving a religion, especially a tight-knit one like JW is hard. You chose not to forget, but share your findings and experience with others. Undoubtedly all the information you provide is of great help to many, if only they decide to let go of their fears and wake up. In our case, it is contributing to the 4 of us leaving the JW as a united family.
Before becoming a JW, I was always a moral person, never got drunk, did drugs, smoked, swore, or did immorality, not even once. Many JW think that defectors leave because of selfish interests, or wanting to go back to rolling in mud. I've got no interest in that and have no ulterior motives. I simply want to live a good, honest love around people who love me.
I'm getting loads to help from your site, it's been like a weight off my shoulders to be honest
I always think to myself, If you can read just one hours worth of material on jwfacts and still go hook, line and sinker for the org, nobody can help you.
I have met another ex-jw who left some years ago but felt enormous guilt and was thinking of going back. She was a very sad and conflicted person. I directed her to your website. After an entire weekend spent reading your articles on jw facts she was all smiles, jubilant in fact. She had no intention of going back to jw. She said she felt free of the hold they had had on her. … JW Facts helps people emotionally and psychologically. It helps to heal spirits and lives. Thank you for JW Facts.
I read your work on “What is with being one of Jehovah’s Witnesses’” and I thought it was well done. As a former witness myself, I agree with everything you wrote. It puts many things into context. I too am happier as a result of my leaving.
The site is amazingly concise, objective and pointedly helpful. Great job!
Thank you for such an incredible website. Thank u for all the time & hard work that obviously goes into it. It helps us to break the mental shackles that fundamentalist religion binds us with.
I think I sent you an email 2-3 years ago, back when I was starting to research about watchtower. Today all I can say is BIG THANK YOU for your site. You helped me in a way that I can't express with words.
It seems recently it is the time for me to decide whether to stay and become a JW, I asked for opinions from many people. But it seems that very few of people can discuss this issue with facts and evidence and logic. So I thank you so much for jwfacts.com which helps me to think effectively. As you may guess, what I am now thinking is how to disconnect them and what else to follow in my life.
Many thanks for your support … I have processed so much about my past and my beliefs and have gone through agony and am well on the way to healing. I don't think anyone outside would understand the mental anguish we have been through, to let go of beliefs that made the person you were. We have had to discover who we are without our family or a belief system to support us.
Just wanted to say THANKYOU. your excellent reasoning and thought provoking, clear headed discussion of the Governing body and witnesses has at last set me free from their shackles. Even though I have not been a witness for many years the fear and torment of not being associated was a constant through my life. I turn 50 this year and at last feel that I can live life freely. I was a witness on and off since I was 2yrs old.
I have read about some of the contradictions in their teaching, but I did not know just how deeeply ingrained and how many there were!
I am coming to know just how messed up ( could have used stronger language) I am due to the subtle teachings of this group, but I am slowly getting help with counselling. God bless you my friend for taking the time to put all this together. I read nearly all of it starting 6pm one eve and through the night till 6am following day. Was worth the loss of sleep, for peace of mind.
And thank you for the website, I've been engrossed since finding it.
So as many Jehovah's Witness who wish to maintain in contact with family it's absolutely necessary to conceal my identity and remain listed as an Elder with my local congregation rather than risk being exposed and disfellowshipped for what's considered “Apostasy”. … Thank you so much it good to see I'm not alone.
Your writing is the first JW material I have read, pro or con, since returning from Bethel. Your amazing collection of work is truly inspired. The true validating point for me is your use of the Watchtower publications own information as your predominating resource.
I am 29, disfellowshipped and have been away from "the truth" for ten years now. It is amazing to me the effect that the experience of my childhood as a Witness still has on my current life. Like you I went through a period of anger, social ineptitude and eventually a total discovery of who I am and what "the world really is. As you stated on your site children raised as witnesses develop an unusual perspecitve on life. And personally I feel this is the biggest tragedy of all.
I’ve been reading you web site you great information it’s been very helpful.... Once again you have done good work concerning the J.W.’s.
The way you reason and the quality and integrity of your site is one reason I came to the realization that MOST critics of the Watchtower do not spew half truths and propaganda. The exact opposite of what I have been told all my life.
JWFacts was my voice of reason in the craziness. When I doubted my own reasonings and mental health (my Mother said I must be either mentally unwell or demonized for thinking the way I was) JWFacts helped my to see that for the first time I was thinking clearly. I wasn't just being swayed by emotion, I was actually looking at things logically. I could then start to trust my own mind. Which has led to my (mental) FREEDOM!! Without sounding overly dramatic, it's changed my life.
I can't thank you enough for your excellent website. I appreciate your calm and objectful approach in revealing the truth about the truth using WT publications. I was raised as a Witness,and spent most of my youthful years in full time service including many years in bethel. … reading about Malawi/Mexico scandal n your website opened my eyes but troubled me for days. It was obvious to me that Jehovah could not be behind such bloodguilt. I've shared all I've found out with help from the site with some JW family members and I'm glad they're also awakened. … Please keep up your good work. you are helping many open their eyes.
Thanks for your work. Your site is invaluable. I use info from there all the time as I slowly try to pull my kids out of this poison.
Thank you for taking the time to create this site. The word apostate is horrible, it has been wired into my brain to represent the worst. It prevented me from thinking for myself for years. You are a good man, Paul. Thanks again
I was checking out your site, great info and have used it to help get my wife to see the light!
It took me several years to accept the fact that this was not the truth. ( without the guilt) I want to say thank you for cold hard facts… Thank you again for all the hard work in putting together facts that can help ones like me break free.
I sure hope that may Witnesses can find hope and a way out through your web site. The approach is so straight forward with very little hate, remorse or other emotional scenes that would turn off a Witness. I hope there are others that have found this site refreshing.
I just wanted to thank you for your website, JWfacts. ... Thank you again for this wealth of information!
First of all I want to say that your site has been of the most TREMENDOUS help in helping me see the truth about "the Truth". I am trying to get myself out along with my family. They are die hards who will likely not listen no matter what is presented. But I still wish to give them a complete picture before they disown me.
"I can whole heartedly say I have never been as happy as I am now with my life. I was raised as a jw, but had questions I knew I could never ask and therefore could never be answered. Now, I can look for answers and I have found what I was looking for that helped me to let the guilt go and enjoy my life. Thank you for making this site. It is so helpful to so many in need of an "awaking"."
Thank you so much for the information that you have made available. I wish i would have happened on this site years ago. ... You have help give me peace of mind, and good nights of sleep once again. You let me know that its not over, this is a new begining for me. ... The Inner peace that i have now, replaces the fear of dying a horrible death from God, and that honestly I dont feel like Im crazy anymore.
I happened on your site. It is one of the best, in that it sets out to be honest and impartial. Regrettably, some of the other sites make valid comment, but the hurt of the contributors obscures their stories.
I just read some portion from the material on your website and have to say I am shaken. I am one of JW and serve in local congregation. For a long time have been trying to find answers to my questions, wrote some letters to Bethel in my country (without reply) talked to some elders and now know what is going with me and how to explain my doubts. Do not know what to do now, must think it over and talk to my folks. But simply thank you very much for your effort to create this site.
Even now I feel kind of scared writing to you, but I feel like I have to. I just want to thank you for this website it really is wonderful and so intriguing. I haven't stepped foot in a Kingdom Hall for years, but I still have nightmares about being forced to go back their now, and I still wonder if I'll die at Armageddon... I am dealing with the guilt, shock, fear, and anger. I feel like I have wasted my life and now realize that I have to kind of relearn everything I've ever believe in. It hurts to find out you don't know who you really are. This has feeling depressed but also relieved. I feel like I am now allowed to be a grown-up and think for myself. It's so nice to finally hear someone voice what's been in your head for years, I can't tell you how good it feels to know that someone else understands and has been through what you have.
"... although we've never met, we feel like you have already helped us through some of our own challenges at a time when we really didn't know where to go. We wish we could send some big hugs to you and your wife ..."
just a quick note to say I think your website jwfacts.com is awesome for those of us that have escaped their mindless dribble. I just wish my JW parents would have a read. Its been a good source of information for me to try and discuss the JWs with them, but they switch off when the argument gets to much for them.
Hi, I want you to know, that youv helped me alot with realizing what is actually going on. I must say, i feel quite brain washed, and im not gonna practice JW anymore.
Thank you for your informative information that I found online tonight. I was disfellowshipped in 1987 and wandered for years with pain and disbelief that my family and those that were my friends could be so cruel to my husband and my sons. It took me years to find myself and not to feel bad about living my life. Thank you again!
Firstly thank you very much for the time, effort and devotion you give to setting up and maintaining this very important site. Along with 'jwfiles' and the various offspring of 'quotes' I have found it to be a great help in finally eradicating all self doubt I had about the so called Truth.
After reading your website and a couple others, I am truly convinced I am so done with this. I'm making a call to my study conductor to advise I will study on my own. (Something else is that there is so much watchtower literature, it takes you away from reading the bible) Thanks Again
I just wanted to say thank you for your website. In particular, I have just read this article 15 Minute Guide and it has helped confirm that I have made the right decision to leave ... I really can't understand why it took me so long to realise - you put things so plainly that it is obvious to any honest-hearted, sincere truth seeker that Jehovah's Witnesses are not the true religion. ... I sincerely hope that one day other members of my family will come to their senses, and perhaps read the articles on your excellent site - difficult to imagine it ever happening though, as they are all terrified of 'apostasy' (and not without reason, given the punishment). I am still in a state of shock about the things I have learned over the last few days since I finally decided that I would read 'apostate' material despite any risks that may be involved. I can hardly believed I have been manipulated and lied to for so long. In a way I am thankful that I came to the conclusion that I had to leave by myself, without any persuasion from anyone else - at least I can sincerely claim to have made my own mind up. But if I had known about any of this stuff before, I would not have wasted so many years.
Thanks again for the great service you are offering. I am sincerely sorry you have had to put up with the ignominy and pain of being disfellowshipped just for pointing out the facts. I am even more sorry that just a few months ago I would have shunned you myself.
Thank you for all the time and effort you put into maintaining such things. This site has literally saved lives.
Your site is like a 'floatation device' for awakened dubs.
I'm 32 and have been disfellowshipped and astranged from my family of eight since I was sixteen. However, I have found the weight of fear of armageddon riding on my shoulders for my whole life. As you well understand, until only about a year ago, I dared not look at your site or any like it( apostate literature..), ironic and nonsensable as it may be.
Thank you for the most excellent site about this theme on the entire Internet.
I've not been to the meeting in 12 years and get this, I've never once in that time had a visit from the elders. … Your site has been a great help, the fact that not a day has went by in all these years without feeling terrible about not being good enough and god is going to kill me. It's finally beginning to leave me and let me move on.
... under the standards of the organization i am a non-believer, anti-christ, apostate... how could my parents ever see me as a rational human being? ... i hope this letter finds you well, and id like to thank you personally for lifting a weight of guilt that has been on my shoulders since i can remember.
I'm assuming you get a lot of hate mail, but I wanted to let you know your site does help people see through the lies. I'm now living a much happier life away from the organization.
I want to tell you how much I love your website! My husband & I were born in as well - we've both been pioneering for over a decade. We've had an "awakening" over the last few months and are now planning our exit strategy ... during this confusing period of realizing the "truth" made no sense, we found your site, and it really helped us find clarity.
I enjoyed reading your article 15 minutes of truth, as well as your story. I only wished I had known this 27 years ago.
I just want to thank you for the research contained on your site. I have looked at quite a few sites recently, and this is one of the best. I was a JW for 35 years. I left 8 years ago. I now realise I was brain washed for all that time. It's so simple to see now, but when you are in it, you don't realise. I am so thankful to be free at last.
Just wanted to thank you for your website. It is very hard to find factual, unbiaised info about the JWs.
I cannot thank you enough for your kindness. I might not have been able to see the real truth without you, and would have wasted my precious years chasing after the wind.
Great site, i too felt "off" in life and mainly my life was controlled by humans. This site was (is) essential to fighting my way out. ... Never knew I was not the only one to feel like this...just goes to show how much influence these people have in keeping one SILENT.
Thank you thank you thank you. Your website is amazing. … I really want you to know that you really have inspired me.
Love your website. It has helped me immeasurably on my healing path!
I spent a few hours that led into the very early morning, reading every page (and link) with great interest. I just couldn't stop reading. I really do know exactly what you were 'saying' and understood exactly how you felt and the anguish you went through. It was strange to see before me, to see how I felt, actually written down, by someone else. Anyone who has never been a 'witness', probably wouldn't understand a lot of the 'thinking' that you wrote about, but I did. All the BS that you go through when these sort of things are experienced, is all written down on your Web site. Brilliant! … One thing I must say is, the friends I have now, are far more true than the 'fair weather' friends I had, when I was in with the witnesses. The friends I have now are there for me, in the good and the bad times. I think you understand what I mean.
You are pitiful. You have no hope based on any truth, thus you are to be pitied because you believe your own lies.
You have betrayed, not some man's religion, but the only true God, Jehovah, and his Son, Christ Jesus. Your "reality" is soon to be destroyed forever. Since you are an apostate, my loyalty to Jesus and His God, Jehovah, dictates that I have to make this my last communication. Your address is now blocked.
I have been actively involved in "The Truth" for over 30 years. All of you statements are so full of holes and incorrect statements and twistings of Jehovah's word that I couldn't begin to scratch the surface of your lies. You have no idea the bloodguild you bring upon yourself.
I truly won't miss your kind wiped away from your own decisions. JEHOVAH does not pick people off to kill them when the end comes, you find your own way there to your own deaths
Reading what you've said looks very impressive to begin with but I have done some personal research into this myself. I can clearly see where you have either been mislead or been misinformed as to what we are about.
what u are saying is not cool just because ur gonna burn and die in hell doesnt mean that you have to pollue other you homosexual you know when the great tribulation comes ill be glad to see you be left with all the others even if i dont make it
I had no idea you were apostate, my correspondence ends with you now, and I hope that before this system of things ends, that you seek God's Kingdom...
You have fallen victim to Satan's scam. He has convinced the world that Truth is impossible to know, but when truths are found they have to come through long tedious HARD EFFORTS. … Come down off your lofty roof and run like the Devil to escape what's upon us. Come down out of the tree. The time has come. Jesus has already shown many examples of his power, and love. This is not the time for you to let such things trip you up.
This website is by far filled with wrong accusations. I suggest actually doing your homework about Jehovah's Witnesses... You will be surprised how many FACTS you will learn about this religion that are parallel with history. In addition, Witnessess are the last to judge an individual.
Lets talk turkey now shall we? ... NOW you all the sudden not in it...How bout you riddle me this, batman. Her name...What was it? LOL!!! Cmon bro, you can tell me...What was her name? Satan doesnt have a bunch of tricks. he only knows a few. he cant pull out anyone from the bible itself, once you know it as well as a witness does. So what was her name? Was she FINE?! LOL Was she ALLL DAT?! and a bag of chips!? LOL How many "you cant tell me what to do's" did you say? How many "these elders are a bunch of hypocrites" did you say? … Hey Tiger woods...What was her name?
and in another email
I hear there is a sale at chick fil-a. Perhaps you want me to bring you back something....today I hear they are having chicken with a side order of Gays inappropreatly protesting like morons. i figure that might be right up your....."alley"
I’m sure all you have to say are baseless and shallow, they lack real sense. I pray Jehovah God really helps you to come to have the accurate knowledge of the truth.
YOU ARE OUT TO JOKE. I DO BELIEVE YOU KNOW THE FACTS ABOUT THE CROSS BUT YOU ARE SIMPLY FLIPPING THE COIN TO SUPPORT YOUR OWN IDEAS. YOU PROBASBLY SIMPLY HATE JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES.
Hi Paul, just a thought to ponder upon. WAKE UP!
You sound so idiotic attacking JW's. Is it because they teach Biblical scriptures for free? And expose all the fake religions that get rich using the Bible?
you gotta look at the big picture homie, stop looking through micro-scope disecting every word watchtower has ever printed many many years ago... youre retarded for expecting to be inspired with new and phenominal informations every day. ... youre the product satans apostacy
How sad for you to turn your back on Jehovah like you have. Enjoy life while you can I guess is all I have to say.
Your immoral lifestyle could not let you remain firm, I do not worship Jehovah with date in mind, but rather because of live for him. You are afraid to prove bible teaching. Now answer who is the faithful slave of Jesus illustration? And how is true worship to be organized?
YOU CREATED A WHOLE SITE TO TALK ABOUT YOUR NONSENSE!!! AMAZING!!! Have a great day...
You got nothing to offer. Too bad, I was really looking for enlightenment this time too. Guess I'll just have to look elsewhere.
Hey by the way did I tell you you're doing really well. Your God is soooooooooooo much cooler than mine. Your so much cooler than me.
Congratulations again. Love ya work and all the best with the apocalypse. Ha ha haaaaaaaaaaaaa. …
Make no mistake chief, Jehovah is real, Satan is real, the angels and demons are real and truth and lies are real. You and I don't matter. There's much bigger things than us going on and one day we'll all know who is right and who us dead. Pretty simple huh. Have fun wasting your time searching. Tee hee oddball.
when you have complete connection with Jehovah God by doing what he asks, drawing close to through intense study and prayer, good assocation, and spiritual nutrients, you feel his embrace and know that all the information is what he sends to make us better ministers to preach the good news. it is clear that nothing has or ever will stop that because that is His will. i will pray to Jehovah for you and your family so that you have a chance and so that they have a chance and their blood wont be on your hands. Jah is truly hurting because you have turned your back on him, and he is ready to embrace you once again. i hope that this helps in any way possible.
You not only have changed you're view on the WTS, which is not a bad thing, but you have turned against Jehovah himself that makes you a true 100% apostate, I hope you are proud and happy with that. Why blame Jehovah for the what the Tower does. Read Ezekiel 13....... Jehovah never left you , you left him.
Subject: apostate/ hater of God
get a life, read your bible and accept the truth within it! your headed down the wrong path and if you do not turn around you will be destroyed in the final days which are soon to be here. also dont try and talk to me because i will be blocking all of your communications. Thanks and may Jehovah God judge you according to your heart.
Hi Paul, you are a dedicated anti witness aren't you. You have taken the time out to make websites that rubbish Jehovah's Witnesses. At least you succeeded at something. All the best for the future mate, Jehovah's day is coming whether we support it or not. I'll pray for you as well as myself. … I can't say anything you said made sense to me, but that is because I look to God for answers, not men. … Take care, may Jehovah forgive you for your slander.
You don't half talk tripe! … if these JWs are wrong, then we all go to heaven (including them) because at least they've tried to do right. Of course, if THEY are correct that leaves people like you with a problem.....
WOW !!!! READ THE BIBLE IDIOT!!!! ITS NOT ABOUT WHAT " YOU " THINK!!!! LOT TRIED TO TKINK FOR HIMSELF, GOD ASKED HIM WHERE HE WAS WHILE GOD WAS CREATING THE WORLD, AS IF WHAT WE SMALL BRAINED HUMANS COULD THINK ANYWHERE NEAR GODS LEVEL!!! ALL THE ANSWERS ARE IN THE BIBLE, AND AS ALL HUMANS, EVEN THE 144,000 CAN MAKE MISTAKES YOU BIG HEADED, IGNORENT, JACK ASS, THEY ARE NOT GODS. IS THERE ANY RELIGION THAT FOLLOWS THE BIBLES TRUTHS. ONLY 1- YES THATS RIGHT AND YOU KNOW ITS J-W'S. YOU GOT YOUR SELF IN TROUBLE AND COULD NOT ADMITT YOU WERE A DOUCE BAG LOSER AND WHERE WRONG. YOU JUST HAD TO BE LIKE THE DEVIL DIDN'T YOU, WELL THEN CRY TO THE HEAVENS LITTLE WHINNER. YOU IS GONNA STAND BEFORE YOUR GOD AND SAY , OH I WAS WRONG, IMAGINE THAT A GOD THAT KNOWS MORE THAN YOU!!!!!!!!!! CHOWDER HEAD. THANKS FOR REAFFIRMING MY FAITH THROUGH YOUR BIG HEADED UNTRUTHS. NOW I KNOW WHY THE SOCIETY SAYS NOT TO READ YOUER KIND OF HORSE SHIT, BECAUSE ITS A WASTE OF TIME AND IS JUST STUPID DRIBBLING OF A LOSER DEVIL WORSHIPPER. DUMMY!!!!!!
Your article on JW facts is wrong and you're purely lying in it. The witnesses never foretold the end of the system of things in 1914, they foretold the end of gentile times. People like you are the reason Satan is ruling this system. … I feel sorry for your state of mind and sorry that you've lost faith in Jehovah. Im sure you were corrected some way and that is the reason you became an apostate. You obviously took it the wrong way and didn't want to change your ways. Jehovah will judge you, and i wouldnt want to be in your shoes when he does, because an apostate is worse than one who didnt come to know the truth in the first place.
Ok. obviously the watchtower society is not wrong you just did not understand it corretly. it did not say that in 1914 the world would end. it said that jesus would become king and satan would be thrown out of heaven.
It is so sad, when people such as your self cannot truthfully face your own insecurities, that you then set out to attempt to cause destructions and problematic influence to others. … This hypocrisy, you cannot present to the doorsteps of the witnesses, for you lack substance … I won't lower my skills in appitude and discernment as you repeatedly do throughout your jargon, nor will I point fingers, …
I looked up some of the quotes on your website. They are misquoted. More like made up. Perhaps real research would be in order
Just a brief "Thank You". After reading almost your entire web site, I have come to the conclusion that your arguments support the beliefs of the Jehovah's Witnesses! You quoted enough of their own literature to convince me that they are who they say they are: the only true Christian Congregation on Earth! Your arguments against them are fleshly, weak, and unscriptural. The beauty of all this is that only those who have honest hearts will recognize the Truth; all the rest will be stumbled.
first of all why ur hidding the half of the truth. … ur satistics about jw are stupid, the baptist people are also a publisher, and the difference is the people died or disphellowship like you ... hehehe return to the truth ....
The more you attack, the more the truth Jehovah´s organization grows...and there´s no way to stop that. Armageddon hasn´t arrived because Jehovah is waiting for people like you to change, if you don´t.... you´ll regret all the bad things you´re talking about him and his organization...and they will be no ramson... nothing you could do... Im sure you know that and that day, before your existence is terminated, you´ll remember about this words. Im not threating you... Im just based in what the Appocalips says in Chapter 16;16.and more important. Mathew 12:32. Justice will come from heaven! and that day you´ll remember this words.
I don't know why I am wasting my time emailing you...I guess after seeing so many ridiculous sites like yours filled with so many lies and crap I just felt compelled to.
You know I started to type a long email to show you how wrong you are, but after looking further into your site I see you are just so stupid and are not interested in knowing the truth. So I just held down the backspace key.
Your site should be called LIESABOUTJWs.com. If you are a former Witness you are probably a person who, like Adam, decided they wanted to decide for themselves what is wrong and what is right. Well go off and commit all the sins you like without fear of paying the consequences. But try to do something more constructive...oh like maybe get people to read and do what the Bible says...you know like Jehovah's Witnesses do, rather than just spout off a bunch of falsehoods. Big bad JWs...they are so bad not fornicating, doing drugs, cheating on their taxes, obeying the law...OH MY they are a blight on society!
To individuals such as Paul Grundy I say a very simple thing .You obviously learnt knowledge, but did not see into the spiritual application of what our loving Creator is really teaching us as humans. … There is nothing else.....Do not ever attack what you do not fully understand for this is foolishness and one always pays the price for it ultimately. Instead, remain innocent and search for the good and avoid the satanic.
you are obviously a disfellowshipped or apostate individual.your link didn't even have facts,just opinions and blah,blah,blah. Do a proper study and discover 'the truth'
i dont seek attention and play poor me syndrome. get over it!!! if its not you and you dont like it soo much why do you put time into your website.
no man is perfect. you spoke of a man you knew that became an elder and was commiting adultery for 7 years. this doesnt mean that their is no holy spirit in the congregation. it simply proves that fleshly men arent perfect as is Jehovah God and Jesus. you've got issues because you created a website that goes against what others believe you fucked up muppet.
Oh I get the picture now. Just like Satan, got put out of God’s organization and now bent on slandering Jehovah and His organization. You mentioned “evil and unchristian practice of shunning”. To say that it is evil is to slander Jehovah God. His is the one that makes the rules.
I have read your website: I want to tell you that you don’t know what you are talking about. Don’t spread rumors. Study more about JW.
You're only sure that JW's teach lies...a flimsy approach to find God don't you think? Jehovah's Witness have the truth. One day, not too long from now, God's name and his Sovereignty will be vindicated. I hope that you can use the time that you have left in this system to really search for him.
7million people from around the world can't be wrong and be brainwashed and under mind control, really?
Change while you still can, while there is still time.
idiot we r not the only ones that have the chance to make it their is also the pagans that will hang on the skirts of the true servents of the true living god JEHOVAH ... Youll still have that little bitty hope. Ill pray for u.
get your facts before you print such trash
Your website claiming to be facts are somewhat entertaining. I can see that the information you present to your viewers seem to be appealing but are lackluster at best. Your reasoning sad to say have no weight to them. Biblical truth is undeniable and your claims are mistaken... keep on the watch...........
YOU DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT THE WITNESSES BELIEVE IN BECAUSE SOME OF YOUR STATEMENTS ARE FALSE. YOU ARE THE FALSE PROPHET. YOU SHOULD GO BACK AND LEARN THE TRUE BELIEFS OF THE WITNESSES. YOU OBVIOUSLY COULD NOT KEEP UP WITH THEIR PRICIPALS BECAUSE THE WORLD SWALLOWED YOU UP. YOU MUST HAVE BEEN A BAD WITNESS BECAUSE YOU KNOW THAT IT IS NOT TRUE THAT THE WITNESSES TEACHE THEIR CHILDREN THAT DEATH DOES NOT EXIST. THEY DO BELIEVE IN DEATH. I READ YOUR STUPID SITE - IT IS EVIL.
And how would you know what their teaching's are? If you are so involved with it, if it were not a hatred or a downgrading on your part. Why the web site? Or why judge the way other people raise their children. And you do not know or have any knowledge other than here say from non quoted sources. If you were so right why do people all over the world still switch to the Jehovah's witness faith,could this be a sign that angers other religions, they do not follow any doctrine, they follow the scriptures,and if the scriptures are strict,then well the faith should be strict as well. Look at the worlds religions, other religions are plagued by pedophile's,gay marriage, money laundering, extortion,child kidnapping,and harboring fugitives. Does it seem fair to go after one faith,or would it be just, too blame anyone or any faith,,,,that's all I'm stating. Would it be wise to visit a local kingdom hall of Jehovah's witnesses yourself and see if children are being abused,or see from a distance from a near bye parking lot,and watch as they leave on Sunday morning,or see if they do shake your hand and welcome your visit,,,,maybe then you can judge. They have welcomed my visit,,I'm not brain washed,or held against my will. Why have fear. Check it out, what harm is there in learning from the eyes and ears. But reasoning that comes from men is not valid. Only that from scriptures is what should be followed. God's own word is truth.
I FIND THIS WEBSITE VERY OFFENSIVE ITS FULL OF LIES AND I WILL BE REPORTING IT OFFICIALLY. WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU’VE WASTED YOUR TIME MAKING THIS YOU LOSER GO GET A REAL LIFE AND A PROPER EDUCATION
I happened to stumble upon your "trash" on the internet and I will defend the "Truth". But you are so so correct that I should not engage in dialogue with "dogs that have returned to their vomit". Amazing how worthless apostates like yourselves have nothing but information to tear down and destroy. You can always point out what JW's are doing wrong but you never provide your listeners or viewers with something better. You're pitiful!
I sympgatize w u bcos it is obvious u are NOT happy wea u are now. REPENT n gain yo happiness again then will com accurate knowledge of d truth 2 tim 2:25. ... How long will it take u 2 b truthful 2 yourself?
... jwfacts is not reliable and its full of twisted false reasoning and hateful lies. ... Proud, haughty, stubborn people just like jwfacts that lie and tell false stories about us deceive others ...
I have to say, when I stumble on sites like these in any form, I find it truly disturbing that someone would use even a minute of their time to in any way downgrade anything spiritual. Obviously it's safe to assume that in some way you were hurt or emotionally scarred by another HUMAN being in your past that was connected to organized religion. But, to turn all that anger and hurt towards a life's work of tearing down others hope and faith is not for one second going to ease that for you. ... Also, it is hard to keep in mind, but we should avoid wasting time playing victim, and instead follow what the bible truly says and meditate on what you learn so that you will have that quiet time to hear what He is trying to tell you, and be able to follow where He leads you.
i read artical on your site i think your problems and your lack of insight come from the fact that you where raised by witness family and now that you are in the world have a good long look at it and think hard you my start to see thing a little better there is only one thing people seem to be good at and that is fooling them selves we all do it and most of our views are clouded by our family your attitude is understanderble i have seen it in witness familys dont question , obey etc but your conclutions are clouded by your limited experience of living in the world have another look at things dont let people that dissapoint determine what you think
Quite frankly, although yr article is entertaining and has merit in some ways, it is obvious to me that:
Interestingly, 9 months later, I received the following in an email from the same person.
I have begun a process that will enviably lead to my extrication on my terms, at the right time. There is something drastically wrong here with the setup in this organization but I need to put my finger on it in my way and in my time as I have my family to consider in the equation.
