Welcome to TowerWatch Ministries

THINK FOR A MOMENT!

  • If you were on the wrong road, would pride or stubbornness prevent you from admitting it?

  • If you are an active Jehovah’s Witness you have asked that question of others many times, I know I did but have you ever asked it of yourself?

  • Have you ever wondered why Jehovah's Witnesses are instructed to ask this question of others but told they must never ask it of themselves?
  • Why is it vital for everyone else to question their religion but forbidden for you as a Jehovah's Witness to question yours?
  • Do the many failed prophecies of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society make you wonder if they are really God's organization?
  • Do you find yourself questioning the ever changing teachings of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society?
  • The truth never changes so does that mean the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society did not have the truth before the latest teaching changes or does it mean they had the truth before the changes and have lost the truth, and if they make a change in the future doesn't that mean they do not have the truth now?
  • Does it concern you that if you do not change your beliefs every time the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society changes what they are teaching you will be considered an apostate and disfellowshipped?
  • No one has ever become a Jehovah's Witness by just reading the Bible
  • Have you been disfellowshipped or disassociated? If so, you are not alone, visit us on Facebook !
  • Do you know a Jehovah's Witness you wish to reach with the gospel of Jesus Christ but don't know what to say to them?
  • If you answered yes to any of the above questions I think you will find this web site very interesting and beneficial!

 

I was a faithful and zealous Jehovah's Witness for 35 years, I served as congregation elder for over 20 years and was the Theocratic Ministry School Overseer in my local congregation for 17 years. I accepted every teaching of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society as coming from Jehovah through His Faithful and Discreet Slave. I was convinced I was part of the one true religion in the world.

In 1990 my 95-year-old grandmother came to live with us after an extended hospital stay, she needed around the clock care. My wife Jean and I began alternating meetings in order to care for her. Being the Theocratic School Overseer and a book study conductor I went to our meetings on Tuesday and Thursday and my wife would attend the Sunday meetings. We also alternated our field service time on weekends. Before long the other elders began to pressure me to get to all the meetings. Of course this was not possible short of hiring someone to stay with my grandmother 3 nights a week. When their attempts to pressure me into getting to all the meetings failed they began to pressure me to give up my assignment as school overseer an assignment I had for the past 17 years. My pleas for help with my assignments fell on deaf ears. Soon I resigned as a book study conductor, later as school overseer and eventually I resigned my assignment as an elder.

Without the responsibilities of an elder in the congregation I stayed home to care for grandma more and more and let my wife go to all of the meetings, she was after all my grandmother and my responsibility. I found a great deal of joy in the freedom of staying at home evenings and weekends as it gave me a great deal of time for personal Bible reading. The more Bible reading I did (without Watchtower publications to steer my thinking) the more errors I began to see in the teachings of the Watchtower. Soon I began to doubt that they were the one true religion as they claimed. I would occasionally attend a meeting but I told God that I would not go back out in the door to door work unless He showed me very clearly that that was what I was to do. He never did and I never again went door to door as a Jehovah's Witness. My grandmother passed away in 1994 but I did not return to the meetings, I had simply found too many errors in their teachings, past and present.

When the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society admitted in the November 1, 1995 Watchtower that they were wrong about the end of this system coming before the generation of 1914 passed away I began to investigate their real history, not just the Watchtower's version. I began to read information on the Internet that the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society forbids their members to read. The more research I did the more I realized why the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society forbids their members to research their past. The facts I discovered were very disturbing and I came to the realization that the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society is not the one true religion as they claim and as I had believed all those years.

It was the most life altering decision I made in my life but in 1999 I decided to leave the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society because of what I found by reading God's word the Bible without the influence of Watchtower publications and I wrote a letter of dissociation to my local congregation.


I invite you to examine the 200+ pages of information on my web site

I invite you to browse through the 200 or so pages of information I have compiled on Jehovah's Witnesses and the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. I have information on the many different teachings and beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses, if you don't find what you are looking for on our web site try our many links or email me I will try to find the information for you.


About Jehovah's Witnesses

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that the Heavenly Kingdom took effect in 1914 with the invisible enthronement of Christ as King. A little flock or Anointed Class of about 135,300 people currently occupies it. All were selected after Christ's ascension into heaven at Pentecost (33 AD) and during subsequent centuries. The selection of the full complement of 144,000 was completed in 1935. Some 8,700 are still living on earth. They will spend eternity as spirit creatures in heaven with God and Christ and will rule over the other Jehovah’s Witnesses who remain on earth. Those spending eternity on earth are what Jehovah’s Witnesses call the Great Crowd or Other Sheep.


Pure Grace

Growing up in the Watchtower Society as one of Jehovah's Witnesses, I thought Grace was some lady who lived down the road. In the old days when we used the King James or the American Standard versions, the Watchtower rarely quoted scriptures with the word "grace" in them. The Watchtower Society removed the word grace from their New World Translation, removing God's greatest gift from the Bible. They replaced it with the term "undeserved kindness." This term does not describe grace. You might show me kindness that I do not deserve, so even humans can show undeserved kindness. But grace is much more. The word grace (in Hebrew, chen; in Greek, charis) appears 166 times in the pure Word of God. It is basically charity, a free gift of benefit, favor, and blessing.


A Ministry of Misery

Depression. What are some of the problems the Witnesses have? All kinds of mental diseases could be listed. Essentially, the main problems are depression, feeling of helplessness, worry, doubt, and conflicts in the congregation. The elders try to enforce extremely rigid rules. For a few years wire-rimmed glasses were condemned. If a person came into a Kingdom Hall with wire rims, that individual would have to sit down for a conference. He would be told, "We notice you are wearing wire rims. You are falling out of the truth. We are concerned about this. We think you need help." It becomes absurd after a while. And as you can imagine, trying to enforce this much rigidity and this much conformity, creates problems. When one really believes the Watchtower is God's organization, the elder becomes God's representative. In a sense, what he says is almost like God saying it. Therefore, if an elder says a person is immature because of wearing wire-rimmed glasses, that is like God saying you are immature because you wear wire-rimmed glasses! This causes people to feel depressed and to say, "I'm a bad person! I'm terrible!" And naturally they feel guilt, worry and doubt.
