Dear brothers and sisters,

With the Memorial of Christ’s death so close, many of us wonder about our own relationship with Christ Jesus. Are we in the truth? Are we in Christ? JJ has just finished a talk/video for Youtube and this site that addresses this subject. We hope you enjoy.

I can still remember the day I was walking down the beach praying to Jehovah to not let me be fooled by anything. I asked if it were possible that Jehovah’s Witnesses were not his exclusively chosen people. If so, I wanted to know about it no matter what the cost. This was a very heart felt prayer. It wasn’t long after that a series of events unfolded in my life and the result was my being disfellowshipped. I feel I was very repentant yet the elders had their minds made up. I had been reproved before for drinking and a letter to back that up was on record. ( 1 Corinthians 13:5 HCSB) This was very alarming to me as I had some time with no problems and was trying very hard. This lack of mercy really shook my faith in the organization. I figured since I was no longer a JW it was now time to research all I could online about the organization I was raised in. Before being disfellowshipped there was absolutely no way I would visit such a web site as As a matter of fact, was the very web site that helped me the most to learn “The Truth About The Truth”. (TTATT) (By the way, I am no longer disfellowshipped and have been reinstated)

s a person who has suffered from much resentment sense learning The Truth About the Truth (TTATT). I have needed to put tools into place in order to get over it. For me, it hasn’t been easy. I believed with all my heart that I would not grow old in this system and now that is where I find myself. Growing old and unprepared to support my wife and myself through old age. As much as I hate to admit it, I realize that ultimately the blame lies with me. I could have heeded the warnings about those who claim the end is close and warnings about false prophets from Christ but I didn’t. I also ignored the Watchtowers prophetic record especially when people at the door would mention it to me.

When first made aware of this quote I didn’t really believe it. I didn’t want to believe it! If it wasn’t brought to my attention by a good friend, I wouldn’t even have bothered to look it up in the Watchtower Library. Because I know this person to be a serious Christian I did look it up, still not believing this quote could ever have been printed in a serious religious journal. Guess what, the quote below was copied right out of the Watchtower Library. Do you think this is the kind of thing that an organization directed by Jehovah’s Holy Spirit would print? Hardly! While they are not condoning in print the practice they mentioned, after such a statement, most Christians likely would feel compelled to launch into a condemnation of such a practice! To call it what it is, CHILD ABUSE! No, not the spirit led organization of God. They just take the tone that it’s probably not a good idea because it could cause your children to be masturbators in the future. This is a sick example of the Watchtower going places that they NEVER should go in the pages of their magazine. Is this organization spirit directed, you decide. I have…..

The Watchtower of 2006, 2/15 “Questions From Readers” article asks this: What three dangers was Jesus warning against at Matthew 5:22?

In his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus Christ warned his followers: “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 word of contempt will be accountable to the Supreme Court; whereas whoever says, ‘You despicable fool!’ will be liable to the fiery Gehenna.”—Matthew 5:22.

Jesus used things familiar to the Jews—the court of justice, the Supreme Court, and the fiery Gehenna—to convey to them the increasing severity of the punishments for sins of increasing seriousness.

I myself would fear a tornado much more by far. Tornado’s kill people in the US every year. Today is the first day after the earthquake. I would guess that many JW’s are out in service today. This weekend the Kingdom Halls will probably be full on the east coast. No doubt the GB has already assigned someone to write an article about this event and how close we are to the end.

“Changes That Disturb People
One of the reasons is that people are disturbed by what is happening in their churches. Yes, millions of persons have been shocked to learn that things they were taught as being vital for salvation are now considered by their church to be wrong. Have you, too, felt discouragement, or even despair, because of what is happening in your church?”

One might ask, “Since Jehovah is the one who forgives sins, why do I need to “call the older men of the congregation?” The Watchtower is correct telling us the “mature older men in the congregation can help remorseful sinners.” But is this always the case? Do most Jehovah’s Witnesses feel like they can gain forgiveness from going to the elders as James 5:14-16 tells us will happen if a sinner confesses to them?
