Entire set of 2017 “Don’t Give Up” convention outlines leaked online.

In 2016, the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society held a series of global conventions that proved to be some of the most controversial in it’s recent history.

Spanning three days, the convention program included talks and instruction videos that placed renewed emphasis on the enforced shunning of “wayward” children, glorification of martyrdom via refusal of medical treatment, and an outrageous paranoia fantasy involving the end of the world and bunkers.

As a result, many have been curious to know if the 2017 convention will prove equally as controversial, or if this year the Watchtower Society will scale back and focus on the less sensationalist and more conventional aspects of its doctrine.

If you’d like a little light reading and want a sneak preview of what Watchtower’s 2017 convention will be bringing to Jehovah’s Witnesses all over the world, you’re in luck. The entire set of convention talk outlines has now been leaked online, courtesy of the website AvoidJW.org. The documents are currently available in English and Spanish, and you can view the entire list of outlines here.

We here at JW Survey are still analysing the contents, but one of the talks has grabbed our attention in a very unfortunate way, and we will be putting an article up shortly to explain in detail why the Saturday talk “Safeguard Your Children From What Is Evil” is something Watchtower should be ashamed of.

      I too appreciate this site. I’ve learn’t more about the bible and JW’S on this site and
      JWfacts than when I was an active publisher.
      I enjoy reading your comments as well. You manage to touch my heart and my sense of
      humour in just a few lines.
      Give my regards to Mother Willow.


  2. Concerned JW says:

    I wonder how long before the videos get leaked?

  3. Mary Jane Smith says:

    That’s a lot of video to watch for 3 days. I think a lot more people will be falling asleep. I Wonder how many attending in the back of their mind will think I came for this? They could just post links and their members could save gas, time and money by watching from home.

    • Freedom says:

      If they stay home, how will they donate or have JW.Org brought out credit facility to donate online now?

  4. You mentioned that one of the talks will be entitled “Safeguard Your Children From What Is Evil”
    what if its right next to you?

  5. I often wonder how much is learned by the WT in 30 years, 10 years, 4 years. or forgive me & excuse me, learned by anyone in the world. AND so i Googled Peleg carbon-14 and found ME back in 2013. Imagine if the WT had 40 men who cared, so that i wouldnt be drowned with so many avenues required by God for salvation. AND always people offend me thinking i do all this thinking to gain only my salvation just for me. Imagine Einstein who wanted no atomic bomb at all, but it was a choice of let Germany develop one, or take the info to the USA. I am in the same spot because i have total absolute bitterness (not like YOU wanting WT to die) but for both sides abusing me, the whole world, they should all die, i hate them, all of you and WT. Yet look how this simple extension of 2013 is made today in 2017 that anyone could have done. Its a reply to a Google-Group-JW post that googled up for me from 2013 with the words Peleg carbon-14.

    2369bc Jan 6 canopy gone
    2368bc Jan 6 = 21 pounds of C14 created every year from the sky
    2359bc Jan 6 = 210 pounds in 10 years
    2349bc Jan 6 = 420 pounds in 20 years
    2339bc Jan 6 = 630 global pounds in 30 years in every human from conception forward
    2299bc Jan 6 = 70 years are 1470 pounds global for Eber’s 30 years (630 pounds)
    to 2100 pounds of global C14. These 1470-2100 give double the longevity as does Peleg’s 30 years from 2100-2730 pounds of global C14.
    2269bc Jan 6 = 2100 pounds of C14 Peleg conceived to full body mass
    2239bc Jan 6 = 30 years of 630 pounds of C14
    reaching global level 2730 pounds of C14
    has cut longevity of humans for these 30 years down 700 years to be 240.

    2209bc Jan 6 = a +630 pounds 3360-pound globally for 30-year old Reu with unchanged longevity
    2179bc Jan 6 = a +630 pounds 3990-pound globally for 28-year old Serug with unchanged longevity
    2149bc Jan 6 = a +630 pounds 4620-pound globally for 28-year old Nahor whose
    longevity ought to be about 218 but his suicide prevents seeing the curve between 230-year Serug and 205 year Terah. AmarPal is said to have died at 215.
    2119bc Jan 6 = 30 years +630 = global 5250-pound as 30-year old Terah who dies at 205

    • Imagine if everytime Einstein mentioned atomic energy if every person said to him ah yes you are trying to save yourself with this atomic bomb. Oh yes you think you are doing this for God dont you? Okay Einstein youre a Jew we dont need an atomic bomb because we are Christians. This is crap you get from people when you use your mind for research to discover what has never been discovered before. You get these arrogant buttholes who think they are so stable in life and wish the same for you once you get over this need to know for God.

      Meanwhile i reduce the list, what if the WT has 20 men who cared, or 10 men who cared. Simple fact that i drown in a headache of swarming info driving me nuts and yet i stick with these truths. BUT who would even share helping me? Was Caleb so stupid that he didn’t understand anything that Moses tutored and apprenticed Joshua to see of God? When Moses said i wish all of you too (all 600,000) could see what i Moses sees, then i suppose Joshua was included in being able to see, and Caleb was almost as usless as the 10 spies and 600,000 because Caleb was like apostle saint Peter or like apostle saint Thomas who thinks they see more yet prove their faith is not there.

  6. Many of you need to look in the mirror, because as i recount and detail every horrid deliberate abuse against me, then my JW who has been given additional warning of expelling her if she talks to me, then says something that she thinks is profound. Look at those who abused me, and where are they now, they did wrong and got expelled. Okay so let us expell Bath-Sheba not because she had sex with David and being married she did not scream rape, let us expell her because she talks to Absalom her step-son ?? So mom does not even see the point, to DF someone if they burn someone else (an elder, or sister), but not DF when they did it to me. Say an elder acts like a homo and youre DFd for slander, but the liars saying you are a homo are not DFd for slander. Favoring and Targeting is the scheme. Their new video on how to hold a DF meeting has a good guy back out saying the committee should not have him because he favors the guy. By all means, throw Peter out of court and say he cant defend Jesus because he favors Jesus. BUT what about the ones who are TARGETING. This world, and those in the Hall are about demons who target other people who have not done what is being said. And so mom merely sees it that those who targeted me ended up out like all you people as if you people did the killing of innocent sheep while you were once active. HELLO, the WT allowed it. The WT protects active accusers who criticize anyone non-elder, non-pioneer, not baptized etc. So i think ALL should be looking at when partiality favoring assists the full-targeting..
