    With every word they reveal and “impart” far more than they ever intended…

    Sorry Cedars, I can only access the first video on my I pad. There are a lot of over sized play icons and they won’t work.

    Continue the good work on this site that expose what Watchtower Organization really are — a fanatic end-time driven cult that only serve interests of its leaders. I left this
    cult three years ago for good. My only regret is that I had not left the Watchtower Cult earlier! On Easter Sunday this year, I was baptized in the Name of the Father, Son, Holy Spirit and received into Eastern Orthodox Church, apostolic Church that preserved the Faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.

    Cedar, you have my blessings of your work on this site that
    will yet help millions of JWs to see the truth of so-called ‘Truth’.

    Forget taking your numbers from a 1974 yearbook if you question the amount of those killed, interned, etc get the numbers from the Holocaust museum. You forgot to mention the ‘JEWS’ were and its quoted several times in the Watchtower publications as it is related in the bible, “ONCE GOD’S CHOSEN PEOPLE” but they did not remain that because of their actions. Your quotes from WT publications are based on the latter that they fell out of favour in God’s eyes. They therefor were NOT written in an anti-Semitic nature. Many Jews have become JW’s over the years are they lesser beings because they were of Jewish blood?…ABSOLUTELY NOT! All races are equal so this video in my opinion is twisted in its presentation. Not to mention the ridiculous claim of Rutherford’s so called love letter to Adolf Hitler. No blinders on here, I have checked the facts. Sorry but this video paints an untruthful twist of events and statements about the WT as regards the comments on the Nazi’s and Jews.

    Hi everybody! Hi cedars!
    I found this article about a discovery in egypt that brings light to the origin of story of joseph in the bible.
    What do you think?

  6. Idris says:

    Thank you for this page, it has been a great help to me, as I seek the truth of the word of God, however I noticed in the video ‘Does the Bible speak of ‘Paradise Earth’ the speaker quotes Luke 21v43 twice, regarding Jesus word on the cross, there should be a correction note as the verse he mentions is in Luke 23 v 43.
    Keep up the good work

    Been to internationals before and this elaborate souvenir thing is entirely new. The last one I went to in 2009, the last ones they had, had nothing like this so it’s not a matter of you having not noticed it in the past, it’s a matter of it being a new phenomenon.
    I theorize that the wt motives for this involve keeping the masses busy and therefore obedient. Jws would volunteer to do this because there are no other legitimate outlets for creative expression. Armageddon being near has nothing to do with it: it’s about keeping the sheeple busy and happy. Making stupid trinkets is also a team building activity as it involves jws working together, thus reinforcing the herd mentality jws have.

    dear friends I was baptized in 1974. Thank God I am no longer a member of the WT. Free at last and oh what a relief it is. A member of my former congregation who I considerd my best friend molested a minor. There was a big argument amognst the elders on the judicial committee. One elder who was a maverick, wanted to notify the police. But, instead they followed the instuctions of the society. They kept this crime against the child, hush hush. So as not to tarnish the name of Jehovah. But in reality it was a coverup to protect the wt’s reputation. Meanwhile this poor child that was raped has to carry the heavy burden of a victim for the rest of thier lives without compensation and without justice. While the abuser has remaind a member in good standing. The congregation he is attending now has not been notified that he is a sexual preditor.

    • Holy Connoli says:

      Frankie.If I were you I would turn him into the police now even though it may have been several years ago he committed this crime. Many sexual predators get turned in years later after the crime is reveled. At the very least he will be investigated and his Name will be mud for being a creep.
      He deserves it and so does the WT for its NON protection of the flock and not caring for the victim but only their phony reputation.

  9. Kirtley W. Burggraf says:

    Tell me, since governing body members are elected (replacing someone who dies) at what point do do they become “divinely inspired” or “spirit guided”? Were they always thus in the lower ranks or does this just “happen” the moment that they are appointed? What’s Watchtower’s take on this?

  10. Alone in MD says:

    Regards your video on the Memorial Service. I am one of those “non believers” married to a baptized witness. I go to just keep the peace but I’ve made it known that I consider this service one of the worst religious ceremonies that I have ever been to. “Anointed What”. Also it was announced at last years meeting that “this may be the last memorial service”. They are at it again. Thanks for the great videos.

    I watched the latest video of the inept elder being questioned by the commission. Who prepared this man for testimony? You all are aware of the dentist who shot Cecil the lion in Kenya? Well his life is over. He is in hiding. What he did ,did not break laws in Kenya and his is in a world of trouble with public sentiment. But this elder being questioned is far worse. He covered deeds that drove people to think of killing themselves. Should he not go into hiding? Is his life over? Has he know conscience? Emotion, caring? You know the answer. Bet ya, damage control is working overtime on this.

  13. Adrian says:

    I think the Royal Commission videos demonstrate that fragility of the governance within the WT society. Yes, it’s an Australia branch issue but cross examination only points to the seat of control on which the governing body members sit. Everything starts and stops with the governing body, they set the policy but where are they? Sitting comfortably in NY watching from a distance ready to abdicate any responsibility whatsoever. A governing body governs and leads but I see no leadership I see the followers talking and being bashed around the head with questions, all too easy for the legal team.

    However, it might just be me but does anyone else not see the lawyer’s gap in knowledge regarding the fundamental rationale for the WT society policies, they fall back in their comfort zone knowing that they can say ‘well we don’t have the authority to go beyond the bible.’

    It’s this gap in knowledge of the legal representatives which the WT society exploit. I mean nobody is going to ask ‘ where actually did this translation come from anyway?’ What were the academic qualifications of the translators? Is there a possibility that you have interpreted things wrongly or even worse, translated things incorrectly? If there’s a possibility that your interpretation on how to deal with modern day child abuse cases in congregations may be flawed, then are you in agreement that your policies could result in lasting harm to victims of abuse? In my view that translation is the ‘elephant in the room’ every scholar knows it’s perverse but no one is holding this cult to account. So easy to say it’s all in the bible but should they really be saying it’s all in the NWT instead?

    The WT society in the videos almost give of an innocence as if to say, ‘ but that’s what we understand from the scriptures’, and I think it works in their favor, but a savvy legal representative would do well to tease out the basis for the rendering of certain verses on which doctrine, policy and organisational decisions are based. So far the WT Society appears to be one step ahead because their authority is not a person but a book, which they are ‘only trying to understand and live by’. Expose the origin of the NWT and the basis for so many ridiculous uncaring decisions is called into question.

  14. Rick Viger says:

    Thanks John for all you do with your videos.
    I’m an ex JW for 40 years now. I hope your videos reach some witnesses and make them think. For all of you that have left Watchtower remember you made the right decision.

  15. S.T. says:

    I was wondering if anyone has heard that Jehovah’s witnesses are telling there congregations that the end of this system could have only hours left? My sister who is a Jehovah’s Witness said they are preaching this at the congregations. Has anyone else heard this?

  16. Paul says:

    Indoctrination and mind control in its purest form. Will the BS never end, and is hard for me to understand why JW’S put up with this.

  17. ian York says:

    It is hard to fathom how anybody could believe in the legitimacy of Watchtower’s claim to be God’s only organization on earth today when considering it started with the likes if this oaf. One would have to have a belief in predestination, an unscriptural concept, in order to square the circle of the now regarded apostate beliefs if the founder members and today’s dogma.

  18. Abby says:

    After pioneering for over a decade, I wondered where the GB got the 70 hours requirement. Did Jesus or the 12 Apostles count time? Honestly, I feel enslaved. Hmmm. I grateful to Yahowah for helping me discover this site. The stress is too burdensome for me. OMG We have been taught in the watchtower that when we revenge, we are being presumptuous is DF not presumptuousness? Let’s look at it this way. When you commit a grievous sin, who do you offend, God or elders? Is shunning not a way of doing Yahowah’s work for him. I just learnt that JW’s don’t bury dfd people. This is heart breaking. I call this rennaissance period for any one who wishes to wake up. Jephtah’s case is an eye opener, I had to confirm that from my book of bible stories, story 53. Hmmmm.

    • peely says:

      Hi Abby,
      Yes, we know disfellowshiped ones are considered as good as dead.

      John 16:2 – “They will put you out of (meaning of Greek is “excommunicate”) the synagogue (“congregation”); in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills (“figuratively or literally”) you will think they are offering a service to God.” (to keep the congregation clean)

      “They will do these things because they haven’t known the Father or Me. But I have told you these things so that when their time comes you may remember I told them to you. I didn’t tell you these things from the beginning, because I was with you.” John 16:3,4
      “I have told you these things so that in Me you may have peace. You will have suffering in this world. Be courageous! I have conquered the world.” John 16:33
      I always wonder why the decision to go ahead of every other bible rendition and take out the possibly spurious John 8:1-11 Leaving it in the NWT would blow a hole in the disfellowshiping doctrine. On the organization’s website, I cannot even find a reference to those scriptures.

      From the symbolic book of Revelation: “He was permitted to give a spirit to the image (organization) of the beast, so that the image of the beast could both speak and cause whoever would not worship the image of the beast to be killed” (Rev 13:15)

  19. Paul says:

    Your professional presentation and factually is greatly appreciated. Thanks for your fine effort and tirelessness.

  20. Splash says:

    The Awake! says “Jehovah’s Witnesses do not force their view on others, nor do they participate in homophobic hate crimes”.

    If you admit to being homosexual they will disfellowship you to try to force you to stop being homosexual. This hateful punishment will cut you off from your family until you agree to stop being homosexual.

    In other words, the Awake! article is lying, trying to misrepresent the disgust they harbour and propagate against LGBT persons.

  21. robert veldania says:

    You are incorrect. They do not force you to be a JW or believe like they do. You are free to think and do as you wish without the JW’s permission, as you obviously are doing right now. And if you think disfellowshipping is a “hate crime”, you’ve not read stories about what true homosexual hate crimes are. JW’s did not make up the Bible verses about the sin of homosexuality, God did. Take up your lack of control with God, not WTBTS.

    • Winston Smith says:

      @robert veldania,

      You are incorrect. I was born and raised a JW and have family back to the time of Russell. If you want to excercise your free will and it conflicts the Watchtower’s narrow interpretation of scripture, prepare to be shunned, with the potential to lose contact with friends, parents, children, grandparents, and more. If you disagree, you are mentally diseased and deserving of death. Look it up: it’s right in the pages of the Watchtower. I know, I was trapped in it for nearly 40 years!


    • Caroline says:

      To add to Winston’s comment.

      Nobody that has been baptized has been informed of the true history of the Society and their failed prophecies and their lies, dating back over a hundred years, before they got baptized.

      When anybody has been studied with, it isn’t the Bible that they are studied with, but it’s the Society’s rendition of the Bible instead. All the study ever reads about is stuff about the Bible to make the student think that God is backing the Society and nothing else. This works especially good with children and people who don’t know anything about the Bible.

      I was an adult when I became a Witness and at first I was totally against letting my child die from needing a blood transfusion but I was told to put my feelings on hold and by the time I got to the end of the book, I was convinced that God was backing the Society and that whatever “God” told me to do, I had to do because he owned me and without him, I would be dead and so whatever God said I had to do, I had to do and I decided by the end of the study that I would have to let my child die from not having a blood transfusion.

      What I didn’t realize is that the Society has no proof at all that they are actually being spoken to by God and are being used by God to interpret the Bible correctly, while the whole world doesn’t know how to interpret the Bible, except for them. They just say they are being used by God but anybody can say that but what a thinking person would ask for is evidence, not just saying they are being spoken to by God.

      If God was actually backing the Society, then he would not be giving them incorrect information that they would have to come back later and say that they have received new light from God. God would not be giving them incorrect information in the first place.

      And think about it. If God wanted everybody all over the world at all times in history to worship Him so he wouldn’t have to kill them for not worshiping Him, why make up a book that was so hard to understand and then wait until 1919 to come up with a publishing company to explain it to mankind? Really????

      What the Society depends on is people who don’t know anything about the Bible and kids who believe whatever they are being told by their parents.

      Once that person is baptized, they are trapped.
