The new “tv.jw.org” website is barely off the ground, but it is wasting no time in posting some intriguing content. I have already discussed the October broadcast featuring Steven Lett in one of my latest YouTube videos. As I mentioned, … Continue reading
Today the 130th Annual Meeting of the Watch Tower Society was convened at the Jersey City assembly hall, or “Stanley Theater” as it is otherwise known. There once was a time when these were run-of-the-mill business meetings to keep Society … Continue reading
An anonymous source has contacted JWsurvey with details of three new songs to be released at Watchtower’s 2014 Annual Meeting, which is expected to be held this coming weekend. Entitled “The Kingdom Is in Place – Let It Come!,” “Grant … Continue reading
Political neutrality has long been a hallmark of Jehovah’s Witnesses, at least in theory if not always in practice. Any use of national flags, whether by means of saluting or displaying them, has traditionally been viewed as a forbidden form … Continue reading
If there is one reoccurring question, one burning issue that most readers who write in to JWsurvey need addressing, it is simply this… “how do I wake up my loved one?” Few things are more distressing than being reduced to … Continue reading

It’s been nearly three years since JWsurvey was launched and we began posting blog articles on JW-related subjects. In that period we have been beset by more than our fair share of Watchtower defenders and apologists, who have shown great … Continue reading
The story of young Ashya King has taken a dramatic twist in the last 24 hours as it has emerged that the motives for his Jehovah’s Witness parents removing him from hospital were NOT religious as initially suspected by some … Continue reading
The life of a five-year-old boy with a brain tumor hangs in the balance after his Jehovah’s Witness parents took him from his hospital bed and fled the country with him. Ashya King was receiving “constant medical care within the … Continue reading

According to the current theology laid out in Watchtower publications, members of the Governing Body are individually appointed by Jesus to serve as part of his “faithful and discreet slave” – his earthly representatives charged with dispensing spiritual “food at … Continue reading
