Students' Guide to Jehovah's Witnesses
by Vanda Goins
doubt at some point and time you or someone you know has come in contact with
Jehovah's Witnesses (JW's). They are widely known for their publications of the
Watchtower and Awake magazines that they so frequently deliver to your door for
a small donation, or they will happily offer you a free home Bible Study (as
long as you study from their publications with their New World Translations of
the Holy Scriptures). The purpose of this webpage is to inform the reader of the
hidden dangers that lay beneath this organization. I hope to touch on a few main
points of interest, and guide you to areas of helps and questions for yourself
or for someone you know.
Jehovah's Witnesses headquarters The Watchtower Bible & Tract Society is located
in Brooklyn, New York. And for over 100 years has been in operation, it's
founder being Charles Taze Russell. What you might not know is that Russell had
no theological training and his ideas of the Bible were outrageous.
in our lives when things go wrong and we just don't know where to go we feel
like a ship tossed about on the ocean and low and behold the Jehovah's Witnesses
show up at your door with what you think to be all the right answers. And they
can be so convincing that you begin to believe in their teachings. Let's take a
look into what they teach.
Did You Know Jehovah's
- That Jesus Christ is
Michael the Archangel
- That the organization Jehovah's Witnesses (also known as The Watchtower
Bible & Tract Society) believe and teach their members that this
organization is the ONLY hope of Salvation today, not Jesus Christ
- That all other religions except theirs are of Satan and that Pastors and
church members are under the control of the Devil
- That the cross is a pagan symbol of sex worship. And that to wear a
cross as jewelry is a form of idolatry
- That Jesus Christ did not die on a cross
- That the Jehovah's Witnesses organization is the "Only True" visible
organization that God himself directly speaks to today
"Beware of sheep in wolves'

Where Do I Go From Here?
By now you probably have lots of
questions about this organization and whether it should be trusted. I don't
blame you. Your questions need to be answered. Only know this; that members of
Jehovah's Witnesses are looked upon as evil (apostates) and can be
excommunicated from the organization if they begin to ask questions about the
organization's roots especially when such questions as these come to mind...
- Are Jehovah's Witnesses a cult?
- Why do Jehovah's Witnesses deny
the Trinity Doctrine: The Father, Son, Holy Ghost as God?
- Why are Jehovah's Witnesses not
allowed to take blood transfusions?
- Why do Jehovah's Witnesses use a
different Bible that devalues the Deity of Christ Jesus as God?
- Why do Jehovah's Witnesses
believe that only 144,00 of their members ("anointed class") are the ones
going to heaven?
If you or someone you know would like
to know more about Jehovah's Witnesses, then read or listen to testimonies of
former Jehovah's Witnesses.
