Some have asked me directly, and others have mentioned this subject in the forum and I feel it merits a short article. If you are an active or inactive Jehovah’s Witness and you are wanting to do deep research on Watchtower teachings in line with 1 Corinthians 2:14-15, then this has probably crossed your mind at least once if not more times.

Concerns about “spying” or getting caught reading something others would be bothered by is understandable. You want to protect yourself. You may also may worry that a friend or family member might be bothered or stumbled if they found out where you have been on the internet. A person may even worry that an elder or other “bloodhound brother” will sniff them out and discover their online history.

The short answer? Don’t worry, be happy! By taking some simple precautions, and assuming the person is not a master-level professional computer hacker, there is very little chance of being found out. Here are some simple steps to ensure safe surfing and researching online. Some of them you likely know, perhaps a few will be new to you.

• Get a new or separate email address that does not use your name or other personal information in the username. If your name is Jim Smith, then don’t use! I suggest you use Gmail as it is slightly more secure IMO than Yahoo and Hotmail, and very full featured. If you want extra security, then a free service such as Hushmail will encrypt every email you send.

• Always use an alias with a non-identifying name when posting a comment on any forums or websites that you know are dubious to Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Do not use the same password you use for everything when making email or forum accounts. (More on this a little farther down)

• Some are concerned that their geographic location can be discovered. It is true that your unique “IP address” is sent to sites that you visit, but consider this: The ONLY person privy to that information is the actual owner or adminstrator(s) of the site. Visitors cannot gain this information. It is unlikely that the writer for a dissident JW website is interested in turning you in- quite the contrary, they feel the same as you about anonymity. Even if they did though, they would have little time left to do anything else if all they did was track these addresses every day and try and match them up with someone they know from DeMoine, Iowa, Paris, Texas, etc., etc., ad infinitum. If you really are worried about this due to a unique situation, then a proxy server can be used to hide your IP address. Research this using Google and you will learn how to do this if you feel the need. Most will never need to take it that far.

 • Use common sense when it comes to not divulging your personal circumstances, location, etc. in any private messages or online comments or posts.


If you follow these simple steps then no one is going to find out who you are or where you have surfed to unless they examine your computer directly. We will mention some precautions on this now:


• Always use a password to login to your computer. This is important to do if at all possible and is easy to setup. Use something like “helloiamlearning” plus your numerical zip code as a login. This is not hard to remember, but is sufficiently long so as to be nearly impossible to crack. Don’t use “mom” or something that you always use or it can easily be guessed or discovered with a utility disc commonly used by hackers. If another person needs access to your computer when you are not using it, then create a separate account for them with their own login information.

If a spouse or other friend wants to know why you are doing this, explain that online identity theft is quite rampant and you read some information recently about protecting your online activities which suggested doing this. However if this would raise too many red flags, see the following bullet point.

 • Whenever going to sites you want to keep confidential, put your browser into “stealth mode”. Each web browser has built-in functions for this, or a plugin to allow this. Google Chrome uses an “incognito window” that will not track your surfing history. An alternative to this is to simply erase your browsing history for the evening or day that you  used it when you are finished browsing.

• Keep downloaded webpages, articles, PDF books, etc. in a safe place. One way is to put them on a flash drive that you take with you and do not allow others to use and keep in a secure place. Safer still is to email the file to yourself or upload it to Google Docs, then erase the file off the hard drive. Now you have the file stored on your email account (which is backed up), but it resides nowhere else and cannot be accidentally discovered.


The main thing to remember is that we don’t need to be overly anxious if we take a few steps to protect ourselves. (Matthew 10:16) It is crucial that we examine all things to make sure that they are so (Acts 17:11) by doing careful research. If I have missed anything, by all means please let me know and it will be added to this article.


With you in serving Christ,

    Can one just imagine ,if man is that afried of man, when the time comes how will they ever stand up and be counted ??
    Those inside will hear Jeovahs voice to “come out “.
    They wont have to use deception.
    Revelation 18:4

    Warning to Escape Babylon’s Judgment
    4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say:

    “‘Come out of her, my people,’
    so that you will not share in her sins,
    so that you will not receive any of her plagues;******
    Jehovah is speaking to those that know Him as the only true God , not to Christedem as the WT would have one believe .


  3. DanielB says:

    And in a situation , when and if we are concerned that we could be trapped and close to being found out , what would be better than feeling anxious or afraid ? Afraid of what , MEN ?

    Just remember that if you are making good paths with Jehovah , what you need to say , if anything , will be given you , similar to the council Jesus had spoke to his Disciples while on Earth . There needn’t be a lie told , and you will know at that moment what to say , because Divine Spirit will hep you , if you are in the care of the Son . The key word : Faith .

    . . . That is , if you exit before the call occurs that Susanna has just reminded us of .


  4. Spike says:

    Thanks JJ!

    Having a family to protect, I know how scary it can be to learn that all is not well in the Organization. Protecting your identity is a wise choice for ones in certain circumstances. There is an old saying ” Is this the hill you want to die on?”. When you are in a battle for lives caution is needed, after all a live dog is better than a dead lion.
    Sometimes the hardest thing to do is not to take action immediately. Our Brothers and Sisters have their own unique circumstances that they deal with and we cannot and should not judge them if the are being cautious. We want to help our loved ones, but the opposite could occur if we move before the time is right.
    I think of biblical examples like Jezebel and Elijah. Elijah was no coward, neither were the priests hidden in caves. Hiding was simply the right move at that time. When Jehovah decided it was time to act he made it clear.
    My personal feeling is that waiting and educating ourselves while building our personal relationship with Christ will prepare us for the time when others need us the most. The average JW does not have a personal relationship with the head of the Christian Congregation, it has been slowly removed since Rutherford decided to adopt the name Jehovah’s Witnesses. Since that is the case I feel that many will have their faith shattered, and they will need our help. There will come a time when we will have to stand up for the truth. We don’t want to deny Christ because of fear of man like Peter, although he was forgiven. We also don’t need to go around chopping off people’s ears like Peter did. Those are my feelings on the matter. Others may feel differently. We must all make our own choices.


  5. Willie says:

    Dear Spike, You stated, “I feel that many will have their faith shattered….” That reminded me of the following quote regarding the importance of faith: “The question naturally arises, Why should God test faith rather than works? The answer is that all kinds of works are dependent upon the ability of the worker, and that the whole race of Adam has become unable to do perfect works, on account of the fall of their first parents. None can be perfectly just, perfectly wise, perfectly loving; to be so in our present imperfect condition is impossible. Therefore, in His wisdom and love, God avoids making His test along those lines in which we are absolutely incompetent, and makes it along the line of faith–in His wisdom, His love, and His promises. To doubt any of these would be to weaken the basis of our hope. We realize that we are in a fallen condition, that we are dying like the remainder of the race. We have heard through the Word of God that He has provided a Savior, but we see that things continue much as they were, despite all that God and Christ have done. Our faith, however, assures us that God, who knew the end from the beginning, is working all things according to the counsel of His own will and that in due time He will establish righteousness in the earth.” (CTR) Z. ’12-321.

    Remember Jesus’ words in Matt. 10: 26, “Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.”

    As DanielB said, “The key word: Faith”!

    Sister Willie


    • Spike says:

      Sister Willie,

      Good point. We all need to keep our faith. We can can even pray for more faith where we have disbelief. We need to do this because as you said, we are far from perfect. My point is that sadly many have faith in what is visible, like a man, or an organization of men. Look what the Nation of Israel did with the Golden Calf! Moses leaves for awhile and they immediately lose faith and need something physical to look at to feel safe and secure. Their faith wasn’t what they thought it was. When the Great Tribulation begins it will be terrifying. No flesh would be saved if it were not for the called ones. When people who think they have faith in YHWH and Yeshua but in reality only have faith in men, see human institutions destroyed they will need help, if it can be given. I like to remind people who will listen that there is no scripture saying that any ” Christian ” visible organizations will be spared, only individuals that Christ judges as worthy. You are also correct when you say that all will be revealed. Still we can’t judge our fellowman for using caution neither can we say they were wrong for making a stand when they feel the spirit is leading them. Paul took a stand when it was time for him to do so, he even woke up from being nearly stoned to death and marched back in the city to preach! Even so he did not seek persecution. When the the early Christians except for the Apostles were scattered the good news was spread far and wide. So more was accomplished than would have been if everyone just showed up at the Colosseum for their execution. When it came down to it though they stood their ground. How do we know that we are not reaching more people protecting ourselves, than if we all marched to the Kingdom Hall and got DF’d? There is a time for everything. We should be shrewd but not dishonest.
      . “A sensible man foresees danger, and hides from it; but the simple pass on, and are punished.”—Prov. 22:3, AT.


    • Great quote Sister Willie! Thanks for sharing it.



  6. LonelySheep says:

    Even the great prophets were prudent and even expressed fear of other men. Here is an account I was reading this morning and look at the cover story Samuel had in order to anoint David..

    1 Samuel 16 vs 1-4

    So as has been said before we must tread lightly until the appointed time…


  7. Matt says:

    Legalism produces as its by-product a sort of terrorism. This kind of system, instead of improving peoples’ character, the fear of punitive measures actually has a corrupting, debilitating effect. How this reminds us of the fear some faced in Jesus’ day. See John 7:13; 9:22; 12:42, 43; 19:38; 20:19; 1 John 4:18.

    Typifying the intimidation felt, Nicodemus, though believing
    Jesus to have “come from God,” nevertheless waited till the night
    to visit him, incognito. Jesus told him that “he that does what is true comes to the light,” rather than seeking the protective cover of darkness to avoid detection of what he really believes at heart (John 3:1, 2, 21).

    I recall feeling the same way when first starting to discover TTATT and using the internet as a means of research in uncovering facts that were previously unavailable to me (certainly not available through Watchtower approved publications). The fear is almost palpable and it has the same origin as the fear affecting Nicodemus and others of his day—fear of discovery and punitive action by religious authority.

    It helps to remember words of the apostle John, who wrote that “love throws fear outside.”


    • jacqueline says:

      I dealt with my family on Memorial night 2010 when they finally found out I was a Bible Student. # children 8 br&sis, many relatives witnesses chimed in. It was a battle at first but now one year later everybody is okay except one son. They know when I go to my conventions etc. and they respect it. When staying at their home I go to mine they go to their. One elder in my brother’s KH let me pass out Studies in the scriptures and old Mag as souvineers from 1800’s. They are stronger than we think sometimes. If my husband sneaked it would be grief for me to find out later. So just another side to look at. Now all of us talk openly about things and the whole family met and said each person can worship as they please with no repercusssions. 7 elders and over 100 JW relatives. So, pray and eventually we can help. Each situation is different and mine is just my experience and it was rough at first. Thank you


      • JJ says:

        Thanks for sharing that Sister Jacqueline. It’s nice to hear from you again on here. We all need to strive for Christian freedom apart from fear of man. (Matthew 10:28; Proverbs 29:25, HCSB)


  8. Disappointed says:

    If it weren’t for my family and close friends who would feel heartbroken if they found out (after all, they would believe I am going against God and will die at Armageddon)I would have no fear whatsoever. What can man do to me? But like bro Spike said we must be careful if we want to win our family and friends over. This can take a lot of time. Cautious as serpents, innocent as doves.
    Thanks for all the info bro JJ.


  9. Matt says:

    If we wish to eventually win over our family, discretion and patience cannot be over emphasized! I too am in a situation where I want to preserve a relationship that is most precious to me. The above points and scriptures were made only to help those who may yet be at that stage where they are still feeling guilty before God for thier questioning. If we are able to recognize and identify our fear as being “of men”, then we may be in a better position to overcome it. For many of us, including myself, once this distinction is made it brings an immense sense of relief and inner peace from feelings of guilt before God.


    • spike says:

      Amen Brother!

      I agree. I admit to fear, fear of losing my Wife and daughter. I am hoping that something will happen that makes my wife see what I have been trying to tell her. Unquestioning loyalty to men is her issue and it stems from ignorance. Yet she is too fearful of being disloyal to the GB to use her power of reason. The day will come when I have to make a decision, but I don’t have to crave that day. Send me a private message sometime, JJ said I would like you and you may be able to answer some questions. If you are the correct Matt, were you an Elder at some point?


  10. Matt says:

    I share that fear Spike. I worry that if my wife were pressured through the counsel of local men in authority to escape a marriage that subjects her to “Spiritual Endangerment”, she may be convinced that it is Jehovah’s will for her as a means of protection (though the scriptures clearly do not support this view – compare 1 Corinthians 7:13).

    I would like to meet you also Spike, Lets have a private conversation :-)


  11. enlightened says:

    I dont have much to lose by leaving-live by myself and am by myself most of time anyway-just would not have meetings or field service anymore-have not been at any meetings or field service for over a month-yet feel better and better mentally-the org claims that we will get more and more depressed from being away.


  12. enlightened says:

    I already lost wife and daughter 7 years ago-did not want to be in marraige anymore-and after the way I was treated would not ever go back anyway.


    • spike says:

      I am sorry brother. I don’t know what I would do if that happened. Hopefully I could be as strong as you keep my faith. I was very sad yesterday because I was explaining to my daughter that when the Great Tribulation occurs, no one will be saved without Jesus’ intervention. My wife cut me off and said ” well, Jehovah’s help”. I was sad that I had to explain the JESUS is head of the congregation and that from the bible he is in charge right now. It just shows how nearly all thought about The Christ, except in passing, is gone. I just hope something will happen to change my wife’s perception. Be strong brother, YHWH and Yeshua know your situation, and you will be exalted in time because of your loyalty.


      • DanielB says:

        Brother , when you mention the “great tribulation” I can’t help but interject some thoughts about this term that a few Bible translations use , like the NWT . It is actually better translated as “great oppression” , and rather than referring to all of the turmoil that the world goes through in the final part of the days , it specifically applies to what happens to the Congregation alive during the last days . This is how the contexts read throughout all Bible prophesy on this expression , though Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t generally understand this .

        In answer to the question , “These enwrapped in white robes, who are they, and where do they come from?” , Rev. 7: 14 answers , ” These are the ones who come through the Great Oppression . (Daniel 12:1; Matthew 24:21) They washed and whitened their robes in the blood of the Lamb . (Gen. 49:11; Isa. 53:7) ”

        ” Out of the Great Oppression ” : The whole phrase is ” tes thlipseos tes megales ” and virtually identical to that of Daniel 12:1 LXX . The Greek “thlipseos” is rooted in “pressure” and thus “oppression” is closer than tribulation . It is often used of persecution . ( Mt 24:9 ; 2 Th 1:6 ) Relief from oppression will come when the Master is revealed from heaven . ( 2 Th 1:7 ) The Great Oppression is three and a half years long and is a rein of persecution against the Saints ( anointed ) alive at that moment . ( Re 11:2 ; 12:17 ; 13:5,7 ; Daniel 12:1,7 ) So , it is variously rendered : TCNT: the Great Persecution ; KNX: great affliction . Some incorrectly view the “great tribulation” as against the world , or Armageddon , when it is really an oppression (affliction) against the Saints . ( Daniel 7:21, 25 )

        I only bring these things up as a reminder , since I have not seen this discussed here on this blog-site for awhile , and there are many newer participants and observers here .

        It is simply marvelous thinking outside of the Watchtower box ! What Liberty there is to be had !

        First though , before the prize is fully realized , there are 3 1/2 years of such oppression . But it’s a “cake-walk” to endure , in comparison and because of the PRIZE !

        Also , it is good to remember that some will “put you to death” , either literally or figuratively , and “imagining they are doing a sacred service to God” . This may be included in what we endure during the Great Oppression . There will be distinct division right within family .

        I pray that all of you here will go through these times with strong faith , and that whether you have to guard your online activity or not , that one day we can meet in the Kingdom of the Christ !

        In Him , Selah !

    Greetings everybody,
    I think that reading the following blogs will help each of us in this time of distress


    these blogs are not mine , but there are there good points and a clear message : its time to “get out” from this man-made organization !

    With sympathy and christian love,
    rus v.


  14. DanielB says:

    Brothers “Enlightened” and “Spike” , I had to walk away from my wife and a few children , and I didn’t want to , but the JW family that I was husband and father to had already , in effect , disfellowshipped me . Yes , My wife and I had raised 9 surviving children , and one had died at 14 months old , so there were still some of the younger ones at home when I was no longer accepted as husband and father under my own roof ! Especially since I looked to being in the Kingdom .

    This told me , something was not right in this stellar JW family that I had worked so hard to maintain for decades .

    One evening , as I was talking to a friend , I was saying to him that I didn’t know what to do ! This was a friend who was also a witness , and not regarded as a “fine-example”-witness , and he understood what I was going through ; a genuine brother . I told him that I should be moving on . I said what plans that I had , and how that I would give my wife and minor kids opportunity to move away with me , and this brother was supportive of me .

    Do you know what he said to me in all of my dilemna ? It was something that sounded like simply man’s common sense .

    Eddie said to me , ” Well Dan , sometimes you just have to go with the feeling . ”

    WHAT ? “Go with the feeling ?” , I thought .

    This was a real brother who spoke to me . Not an artificial certified “brother” from the congregation .

    It was just plain and simple good direction and confidence that I needed , and which I was praying for , that said to move on and to get my life in order .

    I always let my children know that I am there for them , and ever since that time 20 years ago . If I can talk to only one or two of them , or if I send a note or a message some way , that I am always there for any one of my 9 children in that organization . THEY are restricted from me ! THAT is what they do to any who disassociate or are disfellowshipped . Am I disallowed from contacting any of them or talking to any of them ? ABSOLUTELY not ! I have LIBERTY . They do not . This is the difference in Babylon The Great , and in being a part of the Congregation of Christ . They have difficulty with spiritual intelligence , and we have the Son and his Spirit .

    So if you , or any of you sense the need to move on , don’t worry about it ; just make your petitions known to God , and in the end , all will work out . “Go with the feeling” .

    In faith in God , through the Son , go with your feeling . If you are in the right , you will be blessed . If you are a bad person then so what ! It can’t get much worse anyway .

    My 2-cents-worth on this subject .

    The grace be with you .


  15. spike says:

    Brother Dan,

    You said. ” Especially since I looked to being in the Kingdom”.
    I revealed to my wife my feelings about partaking and it has caused some issues. What should be a happy occasion is causing division. It is just because of the teaching of 2 classes of Christians which has never been authorized by the scriptures, hence the flip-flop of the ” door” being closed and then re-opened. Secondly it because of looking to human men as the ultimate authority, just like the Trinity, the word and concept of a Governing Body does not exist in the scriptures, hence the need to only go back so far in the watchtower cd-library and the need for revisionist history, and the unscriptural definition of apostasy in the Secret Elder’s book.

    Your Brother,



  16. Matt says:

    Brother Daniel, thanks for sharing your story. It makes me very sad at heart that you felt it necessary to “walk away from a wife and a few children.”
    I would never judje you, because I can’t know what your circumstances were or the other pressures your marriage might have been facing. I can only speak for myself when I say that I will not leave my marriage. It will not be my choice, but hers. I’m priveleged to have a very happy marriage in most respects, and I know this is not true of all, but even if I came to view things as intolerable, I do not personally view my marriage vows as something I can just walk away from – no matter what my feelings may be telling me at the moment. It may be my cross to bear, but I will bear it. This I have sworn, not only to my wife, but before Jehovah God. I do not view the marriage vows as being contingent upon my mate having correct scriptural understanding.

    I will fight to the end to save the marriage, and her.


  17. Willie says:

    Dear Spike, You said, “It is just because of the teaching of 2 classes of Christians which has never been authorized by the scriptures, hence the flip-flop of the ” door” being closed and then re-opened.” You are obviously speaking from the WTS perspective with which you are familiar. There ARE other opinions. Personally, I DO think that the two classes of Christians HAS been authorized by the Scriptures. Revelation Chapter 7 describes the two spiritual classes who will go to heaven. Rev. 7:2-8 describes the Little Flock/the 144,000/the Bride of Christ, which is subsequently described as a city coming down out of heaven in Rev. 21. Rev. 7:9-17 describes the Great Multitude, the unknown number (vs. 9). After the marriage of Jesus (the Lamb–Rev. 19:7) and the Bride takes place, the Great Multitude is invited to the marriage supper (Rev. 19:9) a little while later after their demise (Rev. 7:13-15).

    Subsequently, the initial work of both classes will be to participate in various functions, according to their respective qualifications, to assist resuscitated mankind to perfection. Those who are obedient and have perfect heart intentions will qualify to live forever in an earthly Paradise and then Christ will turn the earth back over to the heavenly Father as we read in I Cor. 15:24-28.

    Those who have remained Bible Students from the death of Pastor Russell to this day, have NOT closed the door and reopened it. They believe that it will remain open until the last member of the Bride Class is found. Once these have died a sacrificial dead as their Master did, judgment will come on Babylon, the world, the Great Multitude, and Israel. THEN the Kingdom will be established and the reign of Christ and the Church will begin.

    Sister Willie


    • spike says:

      Sister Willie,

      Perhaps I should have been more specific for the benefit of others. I assumed Brother Daniel knew the gist of what I wrote.
      The Jw perspective is that there are 2 classes as follows:

      1) 144,000 who partake of the Emblems/ heavenly life
      2) Great Crowd of Other Sheep/ earthly life ( this term is not
      in the bible. Just like Governing Body)
      who just observe at the Lord’s Evening meal.

      I believe all should partake regardless of what their final position in God’s Kingdoms ends up being. So there should not be a class of Partakers and Non-partaker/observers. I don’t pin the blame on Brother Russel, it was Brother Rutherford who made the decision to ” close the door”, only to have that proven false. I do lean toward the 144,000 being Christ’s closest followers who were given the promise of positions in The Kingdom. Who that will eventually be is up to Him. So I lean towards the Great Crowd,which is pictured in heaven as well, being a separate group from the 144,000 at this point.

      Peace be with you,



  18. DanielB says:

    Brother Matt , I appreciate the thought and point you make , and I know of the Scriptural backing . However there are circumstances involved in my situations then , which , as you might imagine have not been brought out here . I am in full agreement over the seriousness of maintaining the family , and if it were a matter of abandonment , then a man would be worse than one who has “disowned the faith” . But there is much more to it . It does not offend me that you say what you said ; I understand .


  19. Matt says:

    Peace and brotherly love to you Daniel!

    I can’t even imagine the circumstances that would have been tormenting you at that most difficult time. Everyone’s circumstance is different.
    It sounds like that was a long time ago though, 20 years? It sounds like you have found happiness now, and that is good.

    May Jehovah bless you.


  20. DanielB says:

    Yes Matt .

    It was a long time ago , and according to Watchtower understanding , I had Scriptural grounds for divorcing , though I gave things every oportunity . I had made a decision for us as a family , without support from my wife , to relocate in another state , and had taken my wife there to see how this was a good move , and I took her to 2 kingdom halls , and still , she adamately refused to co-operate . I was self-employed and the local economy took a drastic dive then .

    I know now , that moving where I had prospected was the best option for keeping our family together and the marriage , however the wife was always dissonant toward me , though she was raised “in the truth” as they say .

    I had done everything humanly possible to do my part in the continual family associations , but I understood that she was not going to co-operate when I put her on a plane back to our property where we had been living . She was always the self-fulfilled-prophesy type of a woman , who deep down knew that she would fail , and even in our marriage . I won’t go on here in public to explain why this was so .

    So what I did from that time forward , was to prayerfully move forward in my life , and I have had no regrets for that hardest decision of my life , ever since .

    If I had ever detected that Yehoweh’s Spirit had abandoned me because of my choices in life , then I would have gone back to where I was in my journey , and eaten “humble pie” , and lived out a life of restrictions imposed by their branch of Babylon The Great , but that is not where the Spirit has led me .

    I could write a book or two on the details , but I think you understand enough from what I have said .

    Now , I am indeed happier , though I must admit that I miss my kids . I cannot tell you how that the WTS had torn us apart ! Lying elders , false prophesy , immorality that crept in to my family , so much to be rid of !

    In the end though , the grace of YHWH will prevail , and we will all receive our reward .

    Philia Brother ,

    in Christ


  21. Matt says:

    Dear brother Daniel,

    Now it is I who must eat “humble pie.” I apologize for making any rash or injudicious statements earlier. Proverbs 18:13


  22. DanielB says:

    It’s alright brother Matt . At least you are not in cahoots with my X-wife and her “Elders” over it .

    Also , it took me 22 years from the time I was begotten , until I discovered it was time to move on . Now THAT was a time of endurance .

    I appreciate what you have said .

    So the point that I was making , in bringing all of this up , was

    ” So if you , or any of you sense the need to move on , don’t worry about it ; just make your petitions known to God , and in the end , all will work out . ‘Go with the feeling’ . ” ;

    and that the “feeling” will probably be , if you do this in faith and prayerfully , the urging of God’s Spirit .

    I had always been drawn to the Proverbs , since before I was a “witness” , and since then , this is still the most worn section of my Bibles . And those words never fail us .

    So my advise is , to any who are guarding their anonymity from within the organization : From Solomon : ” Anxious care in the heart of a man is what will cause it to bow down , but the good word is what makes it rejoice . ” [ pr 12.25 ]

    And , [ Ph 4:6,7 ] : ” Do not be anxious over anything , but in everything by prayer and supplication along with thanksgiving let your petitions be made known to God ; and the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus . ”

    Hold fast in Christ !

    Your brother ,



  23. DanielB says:

    I understand and sympathize with what so many of you have to be careful of on this subject of guarding online anonymity .

    Here is a related consideration : The Iranian government does the same as the ” governing body ” . INTERNET sensorship of their people .

    But notice this :

    ” . . . Many will rove about , and the true knowledge will become abundant . ” – Da. 12: 4

    ” And he went on to say : ‘ Go , Daniel , because the words are made secret and sealed up until the time of the end . Many will cleanse themselves and whiten themselves and will be refined . ( Re 7.14 ) And the wicked ones will certainly act wickedly , and no wicked ones at all will understand ; but the ones having insight will understand . ‘” – Da. 12: 9,10

    Will anyone be able to hide this true knowledge ?

      2 Corinthians 13:8 ” For we can do nothing against the truth, but only for the truth “.

      Romans 1:18 ” For God’s wrath is being revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who are suppressing the truth in an unrighteous way, 19 because what may be known about God is manifest among them, for God made it manifest to them “.

      No human or organization of humans will be able to suppress the truth indefinitely. Neither will any Spirit creature or organization of spirit creatures. Nothing will stop the truth.
