The Jehovah's Witnesses are under the rule of the State(501C3 status). Have you ever noticed the decline in Watchtower's offenses towards public criticism of "Christendom"? They are under rule of the state and can't afford to lose their tax exempt status, which prevents them from speaking out like "Jehovah" would like them to! Look at the older publications/literature of the Watchtower cult compared to the watered down articles of today!(Before they were tax exempt). JW's are not the JW's of the past decades, they are soft and have conformed to the state's wishes, not "Jehovah's" wishes. Trump may make some changes within the 501C3 structure, but do you really think this will benefit the JW's?! Nope, either way the JW's will continually die off as another watered down cult with no backbone, and Christ will see to it that the cults will be exposed for their heretical doctrines.

9 Things You Should Know About Jehovah's Witnesses Hemant Mehta (http://www.friendlyatheist.com, http://www.patreon.com/Hemant , https://www.facebook.com/friendlyatheist) Links: http://www.reddit.com/r/exjw http://www.jwfacts.com/ http://jwsurvey.org/ --------- A lot of people I know think of Jehovah's Witnesses as the people who sometimes knock on your door to talk to you about God. That's all they know about the Jehovah's Witnesses. So let's fix that right now. 1) They don't accept blood transfusions. Imagine you're in a car accident and you're taken to the hospital. They need to give you blood. Devout Witnesses won't accept it. 2) If you commit what the church views as a serious sin, and you're deemed unrepentant by a committee of elders, you will be disfellowshipped. Not just kicked out of the church... but disfellowshipped. Which means no one in the church can ever speak with you again. 3) They believe the world's ending soon and only they will be saved. 4) They don't celebrate birthdays. Why? For one, they believe your death day is way more important than your birthday, so who cares. 5) They don't celebrate other Holidays. 6) They are currently governed by seven dudes. The Governing Body formulates doctrine for all Witnesses everywhere. Women aren't allowed. They don't have any special qualifications despite being able to set policy for millions of followers. And they're appointed for life. 7) Jehovah's Witnesses are discouraged from getting higher education Preaching is supposed to be your true calling. College would just get in the way of that. So while you might get away with learning a trade, Church Elders actively discourage you from going to a university. They don't want you to be part of a secular world and they know how tempting it can be when you're surrounded by people who don't feel like God's watching over them at all times. More importantly, a lot of people who go to college are taught to think critically and examine their beliefs. They take science classes and philosophy classes. And some of them eventually shed their faith. That's a risk the Church doesn't want people to take. 8) They were the original Pledge protesters. I feel like I should say something nice about the Witnesses. The first major legal battle involving the Pledge of Allegiance involved a Witness family in the 1930s. A little boy said he didn't want to salute the flag because his religion taught him not to bow down or pledge allegiance to anything except God. He was expelled from school and the courts said that was the right decision. Years later, kids from a Witness family from Pennsylvania also refused to salute the flag, and their case made it all the way to the Supreme Court. The justices voted 8-1... against the family. It was a horrible decision, it was reversed with another case a few years later, but they deserve some credit for protesting mandatory participation in the Pledge. Today, it's usually atheists who make the news for protesting the Pledge, but that wasn't always the case. They did it. It wasn't easy. They got harassed for it at the time but they stood strong on this issue. So good on them. 9) There are so many resources for ex-JWs or people looking to get out. Did you know there's a subreddit just for ex-JWs? It's awesome. There are also several websites exposing the church's beliefs. Links are in the description below! Check them out.

Why does the entire congregation know your business? When a Bible Study confides their most personal issues with a Jehovah's Witness, how do they treat the information? This podcast is a re-enactment of what it is like going out in the door-to-door preaching work with Jehovah's Witnesses. While NOT every Witness may engage in such chatter, most congregations around the globe are known for the gossip and telling the business of those that they meet in their ministry. FOR THE RECORD: Jehovah's Witnesses know that when they go on a Bible Study or a Return Visit, the person is not a dedicated, baptized Witness, therefore, when they come back to the car to relate the experience about the person they met at the door, it is not considered gossip. I cannot remember a time when someone went to a door and was met with drama, that they did not come back and share that experience. Thus, everyone knew the business of the person that was met at the door that shared their personal story with the JW. As the old saying goes, it you don't want others to find out about your business, you should not tell anyone. When the Jehovah's Witness goes out to find what they term "sheeplike ones" to recruit into their fold, these persons believe they are speaking in confidence and that God's Holy Spirit is with the individual they are confiding in about their personal life. Unfortunately, Jehovah's Witnesses do not have any formal training to counsel or shepherd others, nor are they under obligation like a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist to keep any information you reveal to them private. Therefore, if you are studying with Jehovah's Witnesses, its best that you stop talking and telling your business. Also, you need to do research about this organization and find out the true history on its foundation. You may find yourself quite surprised. http://exjwcriticalthinker.com [email protected]

How do Jehovah's Witnesses react when they meet someone really excited about God and the Bible and they want to talk about it? Often times they can't run away fast enough. Are they really looking for people who love God and love the Bible -or- are they just looking for people who will blindly submit themselves to their doctrine?

Sale of property Beth Sarim today After Rutherford's death, the Watchtower Society maintained Beth Sarim for a few years, before selling the property in 1948. The belief that the "princes" would be resurrected before Armageddon was abandoned in 1950. In 1954, when asked at a trial in Scotland why the property was sold, Watch Tower spokesman Frederick William Franz explained: Because it was there, and the prophets had not yet come back to occupy it, to make use of it, and the Society had no use for it at the time, it was in charge of a caretaker, and it was causing expense, and our understanding of the Scriptures opened up more, and more concerning the Princes, which will include those prophets, and so the property was sold as serving no present purpose. The house is now privately owned and has been designated Historical Landmark number 474 by the City of San Diego.

This is the very first video I posted a little over a year ago. Wow! I never expected so many views. Thank you so much! To all my brothers and sisters that reached out to me with positive loving encouragement, kind words and sincere effort to guide me in the way that you felt as truth, thank you. And to those with negative comments and insults, it brought home how much we as a human race need to pull together and start showing more LOVE to each other if we are going to turn this mess around. All of this caused me to push harder, look at things I have never thought of, and critically think in different ways. This led me to ultimately empty my cup so to speak about anything I have ever believed about EVERTHING! I felt I had to do this to purge myself and start as a newborn babe. What an awakening! I thought waking up from the JW cult was bad! When I awakened to the rest of the mess that most of us are blind to....your mind will be blown! Fast forward to my newest video if you wanna cheat! Lol. I have no regrets about making this first video because that act ultimately led me back to The Christ within! I AM MONICA, I am sovereign, I am divine and I am free. So much has transpired over this pass year to get me to this point. If you decide to follow what I call my spiritual journey, be prepared for many ups and downs and crazy turns as to which way I am going. Crazy ride y'all! Half the time I felt totally lost almost adrift....but I kept pushing, turning over every stone and just not stopping until I discovered the TRUTH of who and what I am. What a surprise! KNOWING the truth has surely set me free! I had been thinking about the experience of this video for the last couple of days. So one day as I was almost home, had an overwhelming urge to post my experience. So as I tell this story it was almost like I was living it again. I had shared this experience with only a couple of people, and when I decided to share with more people, I shared with the world! Love and light my family! I Am Monica and I am Happy and Free at last!

Part 1 of 2 This is what happens when a Jehovah's Witness gets caught not believing in the stories that he was raised with. They call this apostasy, which in their view, includes holding or sharing any viewpoints contrary to what is taught by the Organization. The accusation is examined by a committee of at least 3 elders, who meet with the accused alone and in secret to provide congregational discipline. Failure to attend this meeting makes conviction virtually automatic. The punishment for apostasy (among many other perceived sins) is what they call disfellowshipping, that is, removal of said person from the congregation. The moment one is removed from the congregation, all Jehovah's Witnesses, which usually includes all the person's closest friends and immediate family, are explicitly forbidden to speak to that person. The only way to reverse this is by repenting, re-committing oneself to the service of the Organization, and begging the Elders to let you back in. This humiliating reinstatement process usually lasts at least a year. When I stopped believing in the Organization, I knew that the only likely outcomes were either disfellowshipping, or spending the rest of my life pretending to be something I'm not, as though I were ashamed of simple logic and skepticism. I went to this meeting, not to avoid being disfellowshipped, but to challenge the elders to justify their immoral actions, and to expose the things they do in secret to the harsh light of day.

Judicial Committees [00:00:00] JT let's talk about judicial committees. What are they and how do they work? [00:00:05] This is actually a subject that we have had so many people write us about off line. And the reason why is because so many people have been impacted by what is known as the Jehovah's Witness judicial process. And it is oftentimes little understood by persons who are not elders who have not served on either a regular committee or an appeal community and as a result it often puts a Jehovah's Witness at a great disadvantage. [00:00:36] So let's start with the definition. Right so judicial says judgment judging a jury. [00:00:46] Where did that come from. What does it all mean. [00:00:48] In other churches for example like in a Catholic church they have a process that results in people being excommunicated Okay, so Jehovah's witnesses they have a process that is known as disfellowshipping. And in order for a person to be disfellowshipped or disassociated or reproved, it typically will have to go through a judicial process. The disassociation is a separate thing today especially the way in which they're really working. It protects them from having to be accused of taking what we call passive or active action. We did a video a while back on the difference between a disfellowshipping and disassociation and we went into that. But the process of the judicial process is something that elders are involved in. [00:01:35] And what's the scriptural basis for this or is this just something that evolved over time? [00:01:42] Yes. The Watchtower used a scriptural basis of a situation that took place in the congregation in Corinth where there was a young individual who was actually involved in a relationship with his mother. Paul's response was to remove them from amongst us. And I often tell people when I discuss this issue is that what makes it so unique with Jehovah's Witnesses is is how they do it and the things that would constitute being brought up on charges the list often changes. [00:02:16] So today you can be disfellowshipped for doing something but six months from today, it may no longer be disfellowshipping offense. So here you have a judicial case that will be held against you on Monday but just three days later the rules can change, and it is no longer an offense. So, it's really the process. In fact, this is one thing that Ray Franz mentioned his book is the process. And, unfortunately there are people who are watching this video right now who will tell you and we're going to invite them to share their stories and who will tell you how humiliating this entire process can be especially if you are a woman. [00:02:56] So can you give us a specific example of maybe a judicial case that you were a part of? If I understand it, it's you've got to be an elder so how are elders chosen number one and the number two. Give us a specific case. [00:03:09] Yeah. I can give you my own personal example. I was just a newly appointed Elder. I was 27 years old and I was a new elder. And we just went through Elders school. So when you come back from the school you got all of your notes, your elders book and you now feel qualified to help friends out that get into issues in the congregation. I remember going to the King Hall one evening and the presiding overseer now known as the coordinator, he tapped all the elders on the shoulder and told us that he needed to meet with us after the meeting [00:03:38] So, I told my wife that she might want to catch a ride home with another sister in the congregation because this might be a long meeting. And so we got in the back and he said I want you to know that Sister Johnson contacted me and let me know that she was sexually involved with a man on her job. So what we need to do is we need to form a judicial committee to handle this case. And at that point he wanted to know who was available this weekend to handle the case. I indicated that I’d be one of the elders in town. One of the other elders looked at me and said this will be good experience for JT.

AnonDude2's Two Judicial Committee Meetings (unedited). I do not own this video, it is freely offered; neither it nor my channel are monetised, and it is offered in a single video format, rather than as 19 separate short 14 to 15 minute videos on AnonDude2's YouTube channel. So he; AnonDude2, and not I, owns this video. Here is the link directly to AnonDude2's channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC077xId1LlVwMHsiJUQQGzQ
