The Watchtower teaches that Jehovah’s Witnesses alone teach truth and hence only their followers are worthy of salvation. This site shows whether Jehovah’s Witnesses have the “truth” by concentrating on three areas:
- With a history of significant errors and changes, is God directing the Watchtower Society?
- Is the Watchtower honest when quoting secular sources and presenting its history?
- Are current Watchtower doctrine and practices justified Biblically?
15 minute Guide To Truth presents the first step in putting relevant issues in perspective.
There is no attempt here to point the finger at individual Jehovah’s Witnesses, but rather educate as to the reality of the doctrines. Particularly disturbing are the dangerous teachings regarding regarding blood transfusions, child abuse and shunning family members.
The Watchtower religion is in no way unique; neither in doctrine or displays of love, and Fear and Mind Control is an important article to understand why Jehovah’s Witnesses believe they alone know truth.
Proving that the Organization is not directed by Jehovah took me many years because of cognitive dissonance and fear; fear of change, fear of my own motives and fear of researching outside of the Watchtower. I ended up researching and writing hundreds of pages of information before I was content that I was not “misled by Satan.” I hope that this site can help make that process far quicker and easier for others.
To come to the realization that Jehovah’s Witnesses do not represent truth is devastating. To realize that your whole life, all friendships and possibly even your relationship with God may be affected has extreme emotional effects. However, I can assure you that being realistic about truth and the Watchtower Society is worth it.
