I've heard many Jehovah’s Witnesses say that they are the only religion that does not engage in war, and use this as indication they alone follow God’s standards. For a period while I was a Jehovah’s Witnesses I believed that. But this self-proclamation of uniqueness is far from correct. Other religions are promptly blamed for their involvement in …
 
Recently I got a lot of flack from a Jehovah’s Witness lawyer on TikTok about me stating that the Jehovah’s Witness belief that they will never die is false and I was told that I was creating sensation. Well, in this episode I unpack the belief with proof from their very own publications that the doctrine is actually true. The organization is notor…
 
The wounds inflicted on 60,000 Herero and 10,000 Namas in the erstwhile colony of Southwest Africa have yet to heal.

After a century of denial, both countries' governments a…

Norway, which has a national Church but no national religion, is one of those countries where religion is literally subsidized by taxpayers; the more members you have, the more money your preferred religious (or Humanist) organization receives. Any "religious" group with 50 registered members is eligible to apply for state funding, and over 800 gro…

The one doctrine that has always been a despicable practice with regard to the Jehovah's Witnesses and many cults and high control groups is the practice of disfellowhipping. Jehovah's Witnesses were recently fined 12000 Euros in Belgium due to this practice of disfellowshipping and shunning. The court ruled that the non-profit association behind J…
 
Watchtower has made a number of changes to the elder arrangement throughout their history.

There’s a new elders manual that has just been released by the Watchtower. It is called Shepherd The Flo…

Today’s show is about a verdict that was handed down to two Jehovah’s Witness elders who failed to report child sex abuse. This reaches back to 2006 to a Spanish congregation in Illinois. And in this case, the elders left the thinking to the organization. They left a moral obligation to be decided by somebody else. They left it to the Watch Tower. …

South Africans went to the polls this week to vote in the local government elections, however, thousands of Jehovah's Witnesses did not. And that's because they are faced with a conundrum.

Before being baptized as a Jehovah's Witness I was baptized as an infant in the Anglican church. My father was an Anglican Church member before he became a Jehovah's Witness.

In publications directed to the public, Watchtower claims not to judge homosexuals, yet continues to release articles that are disparaging of gay people and anyone supporting gay people. Watchtower labels homosexuality as one of the most vile sins, and practicing homosexuals will be destroyed at Armageddon. It has written that masturbation can lead…
 
As a publishing company, Watchtower amassed considerable wealth from the sale of literature from the 1800's to the 1990s. There was no need to resort to the same collection efforts typical of other religious groups. This changed in 1990 with a tax ruling against Jimmy Swaggart. In 1988, Jimmy Swaggart was taken to court in the case Swaggart Ministr…
 
In this episode I want to ask the question, "Does Jehovah's Witnesses and other high control groups and fundamentalist sects foster narcissism and egotism?" It is a question and observation I have been wrestling with for a number of years and I thought I would throw the question out there to you, the viewers and the listeners, to get your views on …
 
Growing up in the Jehovah's Witnesses I've always had a disdain for the misogynistic and sexist nature of the Jehovah's Witnesses. They are a patriarchal society where women are to view men as their head and only men can hold positions of responsibility and teaching in the congregation. The head of a wife is her husband, and the spiritual head of a…
 
Jehovah’s Witnesses are advised against pursuing a higher education, with Watchtower providing regular warnings that attending university is an improper use of time in these so called last days.

For some, religion serves as a community, a place of support. It can serve as a common identity shared among family members or a set of beliefs one has held since childhood that governs their lives. For others, religion is a source of pain and shame, a place they feel shunned and unwelcome or even unsafe. Religious trauma syndrome (RTS) is a set of…

It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.” This statement comes from the movie called The Matrix, which to me aptly describes what I experienced and what led to me being awakened to the deception and cover-ups of an organization that claims to be directed by God and states that it is the sole channel of commun…
 
History is littered with cults that use political ideals as their base. Classic examples of this type of cult are Hitler’s Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Communist USSR.

From inception, Watchtower leaders took issue with the education system, bemoaning teachings that contradict a literal interpretation of the Bible. One of the primary reasoning against a higher education has been that the time left is reduced, so the final days of this system should be spent in full service for Jehovah and his organization. However…
