Many of us are in a similar situation in that our spouses are blind to the “truth about the truth”. Very often they refuse to even investigate and consider the possibility that the Watchtower org. is not God’s chosen channel. How can we break through to them? How can we get them to do an […]
I have often wondered about this question, “Does God only love those who love him?” What about all the ones he killed throughout history? Is that loving your enemy? My opinion is that many religions throughout history have painted a very ugly picture of God. However Jesus has painted a very different picture and tells […]
Considering the context of a bible verse is essential to correctly interpret it’s meaning. We need to consider things such as: Who wrote the book? To whom was it directed? What was going on at the time it was written? What was the culture of the writer and his audience? What is the topic being […]
We had a great conversation with a fellow struggler last week and his conversation is now online. Our goal is to do more of these and if you have someone you think would be a good candidate and be an encouragement, let us know!
Picture yourself as an Israelite living a few years after King Solomon has died. You live in the northern part of the promised land and now you are part of a separate nation with King Jeroboam as your king. You want to worship Jehovah and you know that He appointed Jeroboam to be king over […]
Does anyone want to work on a research project? My belief is that it will positively impact the lives of hundreds or even thousands of us. I’ve wanted to get on this for months, but my free time is very limited lately, as running JWStruggle.com has taken up quite a bit of it as many of you know. Team members will be able to collaborate on the project using Google Docs, so geographic location will be a non-issue. A call to take on the following project is now hereby being made. A small group of reliable people are needed. Read on, and prayerfully decide if you can help us tackle this project:
We are very proud to announce or first JW Struggle video! We now have a youtube channel with our new video entitled, “Is Jesus Your Mediator” up and ready to watch in HD. JJ has has put in many man hours on this project. Andrew helped with the script. We have reviewed it and feel […]
There are a few indications that one of the problems of the beliefs of the JWs is that too much emphasis is put on the Hebrew Scriptures. It is true that all scripture is beneficial, but when Jesus came to the earth many things changed and I feel that in some ways JWs are still stuck in the Hebrew Scriptures.
New JW Struggle Forum: http://jwstrugglehelpforjehovahswitnesses.yuku.com/ JJ and I have been looking into other forum platforms. We think we have found one that all will enjoy. It is very nice and easy to use. You will need to create a user name and password. This new forum is on yuku.com like many other popular forums. If […]
Many of us probably have faced this question in the field ministry when we were Jehovah’s Witnesses. If you were like me you probably denied being born again. Now that we realize that the Society hasn’t been correct on many things, what does the bible teach on who is born again? Are only a few […]
What would you say is worse? Calling someone a “despicable fool” or calling them “mentally diseased”? Personally I see no difference. Jesus said at Matthew 5:22, “However, I say to YOU that everyone who continues wrathful with his brother will be accountable to the court of justice; but whoever addresses his brother with an unspeakable […]
At John 15: 1-17 Jesus/Yashua said, “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. You are already clean because of the word I have […]
Throughout all human history men have fought and died for freedom, political freedom, economic freedom, and spiritual freedom. We as Christians are especially interested in spiritual freedom. Most of us have belonged to an authoritative religion that permits little in the way of Christian freedom. It is something some of us are starting to experience […]
