Dear Jehovah's Witness,
Thank you for checking out our web site. We are born-again
Christians who have a burden to see men and women of all religions come into a
personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We feel that God has called us to
focus a large part of our attention on Jehovah's Witnesses. Its
not that we think that you are insincere in your efforts to serve Jehovah, but
feel as though you have been misled and taken advantage of by the Watchtower
Do you really feel as though your field service and
works are sufficient? Will you ever measure up to Jehovah's standard? The fact
is, you can never do enough to please a Holy and Righteous God. Reaching God by
your self-efforts is impossible. (Isaiah 64:6, Titus 3:5) It's like jumping
across the ocean. One person may jump further than another, but both fall way
short. (Romans 3:23) You see, Jesus Christ already built the bridge between you
and God. You don't have to jump or swim across that great chasm. Through
Christ's death, all of your personal sins are forgiven, not just Adamic sin.
(Galatians 1:4, 1 Peter 2:24) You only need to trust Jesus and, by faith, walk
across that bridge. (John 14:6, Galatians 2:16) By doing so, you can experience
a relationship with God that you never had before. We have heard testimonies of
many ex-Witnesses who have repented of their dead works and walked across that
bridge into the arms of a loving Father. Their lives have been filled with a
joy and peace that they never had as a Jehovah's Witness. What side of that
bridge are you on now?
We believe that all spiritual truth can be found within
the pages of the bible alone. A sincere seeker, with the Holy Spirit's
guidance, can understand God's plan of redemption and attain salvation by
reading the Scriptures on his own. (John 14:26) This is in contrast to The
12/1/81, p.27, which states, "Unless we are in touch with this
channel of communication that God is using, we will not progress along the road
to life, no matter how much bible reading we do". You see, the Watchtower
Society does not want you to read the bible and think for yourself. The
1/15/83, p.22, says, "Avoid independent thinking.....questioning the
counsel that is provided by God's visible organization". Also, on p.27 of
this same magazine it says to "Fight against independent thinking".
However, if you would read the bible by itself, you would never come to the
doctrinal conclusions taught by the Jehovah's Witnesses. In order to believe
their teachings, you have to read piles of Watchtower publications.
For instance, The Watchtower, 2/15/83, p.12, lists four
requirements to attain everlasting life. They are: 1) Taking in knowledge 2)
Obey God's laws 3) Association with God's channel 4) Loyally advocating his
Kingdom rule to others. The way of salvation presented here is in direct
contrast to the bible's way. Notice, not one of these requirements mentions
faith and belief in Jesus Christ which is exactly what the bible teaches. (John
3:36, 20:31, 1 John 5:13) Another example is written in The Watchtower, 4/1/47, p.204.
It says that, "To get one's name written in that Book of Life will depend
upon one's works". This is in direct violation of scriptures such as
Ephesians 2:8-9 and Titus 3:5 which states that we are not saved by works, but
by God's grace through our faith. To add insult to injury, The Watchtower, 8/1/81, p.26,
says that, “Your attitude
toward the wheatlike anointed “brothers” of Christ and the treatment you accord
them will be the determining factor as to whether you go into “everlasting
cutting-off” or receive “everlasting life”.
We know that a decision to leave the Watchtower Society
is a huge one. You may leave many close friends and relatives behind. Some, or
all, may never speak to you again. Possibly your very own spouse and children.
We have a friend who left the Society to follow Jesus. He was shunned for years
by all of his brothers and sisters; however, through persistent prayer, every
one of them eventually came out of the organization into freedom in Jesus
Christ. As difficult as it is, you must be willing to make that decision and be
prepared for whatever happens. God will bless you greatly if you do. Remember
Jesus' words: "And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or
father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name's sake, shall
receive a hundredfold, and inherit everlasting life" ( Matthew 19:29).
Please keep an open mind when reviewing the information
at this site. We encourage you to check out the literature presented here on
your own. Much of it is probably accessible at your Kingdom Hall library. It is
not our intention to ridicule or tear down any individual, but reveal to you
material that may help you find new life in Christ. Our hearts are open to you.
In Christ's Love,
Tower To Truth
