Did you know the Book of Mormon which Joseph Smith claimed is the "most correct of any book of earth" and the "keystone" of the Mormon religion does not contain any of the unique doctrines of Mormonism?Read more

LEARN WHY MORMONS AND JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES ARE NOT CHRISTIANS – If they “believe in Jesus” why do we say they are not Christians?
Last week, we were shocked and saddened to learn of a Jehovah's Witness mother who committed suicide after killing her husband and two adult children in Detroit, Michigan on February 16, 2018:
Woman Who Killed Self, Entire Family Was Shunned by Jehovah's Witnesses for Sending Kids to College
Joyce Taylor was a personal friend of the Jehovah's Witness mother (Laura Stuart) who murdered herself and her family last week in order to "save" them from Armageddon. Before Laura killed her family, she wrote: "I had to kill them, it was the only way to save them." Joyce Taylor, who grew up with Laura, understands the Watchtower cultic mindset and Jehovah's Witness shunning policy that drove Laura to murder her family and she told how just a week before Laura murdered herself and her family, she had visited Joyce and was telling her how concerned she was that "Armageddon" (the battle to end the world) was coming soon.
Joyce, who had left the Watchtower many years before, shared how strong this fear of Armageddon can be in causing a Jehovah's Witness to wish for the death of their non-JW relatives because the Watchtower teaches that if you die "before" Armageddon, you will get a chance to be "resurrected" and have another opportunity to "accept the Truth" (that is, the Watchtower religion) before you will be annihilated, but if you die "during" Armageddon, there will be no second chance. She believes that this lie along with the Watchtower shunning policy is what drove Laura to murder herself and her family last week and she went back to Laura's Kingdom Hall and tried to tell them so.

This is not the only JW murder/suicide where the Jehovah's Witness said that they were killing in order to "save" their family. Soon after I started my ministry in the late 1990's, I read in a 1999 news article about a Jehovah's Witness father (Mark Barton) who decided to murder his wife and 2 kids and then kill himself over unrelenting fears.Read more
A common objection to ministries like ours that expose the lies in the religions of Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons is the claim that any critical information given against another religion is "bashing" that religion. Is our exposing of errors in the doctrine and practices of a religion motivated by fear, hate or love? This video from Ex-JW Critical Thinkers is one of the best videos explaining why we do what we do:Read more
Hi I’m Lee. For 32 years my wife and I raised our family Mormon. I was a High Priest and Bishop and our son served a mission in Brazil. As Mormons, we believed we were following Christ, until we discovered Polygamy, Polyandry, Blood Atonement, Lying for the Lord, and many other corruptions and false teachings in Mormonism. In spiritual turmoil, loving Christians reached out to us.
Hi I’m Trish. I was a Jehovah’s Witness for 42 years. I was lost and I was hungry and I didn’t know what for… until I found out who Christ really is. In all those years going door to door with my Bible, no one ever shared Christ with me. I don’t think they knew how. I don’t think they knew they could or that they needed to. I’m just so grateful someone finally did.
I was in prayer this morning having a lot of thoughts about the difference between prayer and worship. In prayer, we often spend the time petitioning. And we are indeed called to do that. But petition takes us out of the present. It focuses on future desire, "God, please help so-and-so overcome..." But worship has no past or future but only brings you into the present. And a stream of thoughts was filling me on how to present this truth to you. As Jehovah's Witnesses we were very "thinking" oriented. And even now, as we engage in Bible study we are using our minds. But over and over we see Scriptures encouraging us to live in a place called Spirit.
3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.... unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (John 3:3-6)
Look back at that passage. Do you notice what the Spirit allows us to do? To SEE the kingdom of God. We actually ENTER it when born of Spirit. And that which is born of the Spirit is…. ?Read more
Whenever Christians find out how Jehovah's Witnesses practice their version of communion at the annual Memorial, they're usually pretty shocked. "You mean no one eats the bread or drinks the wine?" That's right. It's only for the remnant of the 144,000. A very small number in relation to the 8 million Witnesses who claim an "earthly hope." Most Kingdom Halls have no one at all who is "allowed" to partake that night. And so, bread and wine get passed from person to person with a very conscious decision not to partake. They are rejecting the sacrifice of Jesus Christ in favor of "Jehovah's arrangement" set forth by the Watchtower Society.
I attended my last Memorial in 2002 or 2003. I'm not sure. But I do know when I first partook of the bread and wine with full understanding that the sacrifice Jesus made was for me. September 9, 2007 was a very joyous day and I've never stopped appreciating this remembrance ritual whether gathered with other believers at church or at home alone.
But is it a mere ritual? To some, perhaps. But communion has become a form of prayer for me. And as I contemplate with sadness the upcoming Memorial of 2018 in which Jehovah's Witnesses will once again confirm their rejection of Jesus Christ, I'm reminded of the intimacy they will all miss out on and the lessons God taught me one sleepless night when I listened close to what His indwelling Spirit had to teach me.Read more
