Julie offers one-on-one Bible Studies in the book of Galatians for anyone seeking help leaving Jehovah’s Witnesses and wanting to grow in their relationship with God apart from the organization.

– As a convert to Jehovah’s Witnesses, Julie believed she had found “the Truth,” but when she was mocked for reporting a “wolf” in sheep’s clothing in the congregation and told that “those verses” about wolves were “only for first century” Christians, not for Jehovah’s Organization today, she knew something was desperately wrong!  At that instance when Julie saw the way elders are trained to cover-up their failures to make the organization look good, her faith in the Society was broken.  She was “disfellowshipped” for “apostasy” when she refused to trust the organization over Jesus as her ONLY mediator, and today, Julie is freely serving the REAL Jehovah God in joy and truth!

What Do You Think? Is The Watchtower Blood Guilty for the Recent Murder Suicide Case in Michigan?

The June 22, 1985 Awake! magazine states this on page 27, "According to the Bible, when we deliberately put someone's life unnecessarily in danger, we could become bloodguilty (Compare 1 Chronicles 11:17-19)"

Blood Guilty. Jehovah's Witnesses are accustomed to hearing the phrase in their publications and public discourses at their Kingdom Hall meetings. And so it's understandable if members of the sect consider Lauren Stuart blood guilty after the Oakland County Medical Examiner's Office and police determined this 45 year old wife and mother to be the murderer of her husband and children before turning the gun on herself.

On the morning of Friday, February 16, 2018, police responded to a call to check on the safety of this Keego Harbor, Michigan family of four.

Neighbors John and Jackie Tristani said they awoke Friday morning to hear police outside the victims’ home.

“My son said police were repeatedly calling out ‘Lauren, come outside,’ " said John Tristani. “When she didn’t respond they (police) went inside. A few minutes later, they came back outside, shaking their heads.”

Between the Holidays

Martin Luther King, Jr.

Here we are between the holidays. As I write this, Christmas is behind us and Martin Luther King Day is before us. I celebrate my Savior on the one day and a childhood hero on the other.

My first brush with racial prejudice was at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. I was raised in a primarily white, suburban neighborhood in Illinois and therefore unacquainted with words of hate toward another race since there were none on my street to talk about. But when my mother took me shopping in town, I certainly was aware there were people who did not look like me. I was just never informed that I should mistrust them. But there at the museum, I stood in line with my older sister surrounded by girls of another color.

“Little white girl,” one slurred as she gave me a shove. My mind whirled wondering what I had done to this person to warrant her taunting behavior. Again she pushed me while condemning my color to the delight of her friends. Thankfully it didn’t escalate into violence beyond my hurt feelings, but it left me confused. This girl didn’t know me and yet she hated me. Why?

When we came back from Christmas break in 1973, my elementary school teacher took us into a lesson plan on Martin Luther King, Jr. Though the federal holiday that commemorates the civil rights leader would not be officially recognized for another 10 years, I was an eager student to hear the story that January.

I was SHOCKED to learn that my race had once enslaved Dr. King’s race. SHOCKED that only a few years before I was born, black people were expected to sit at the back of the bus and drink from separate water fountains. I became intensely interested in learning about the oppression of black people and realized what was behind that girl’s hatred of me, the “little white girl.”

Christmas Through An ExJW's Eyes

What is Christmas to you? Do you have fond memories of family gatherings sharing recipes and gifts under the tree? For those who grew up in the Watchtower Society, there are no memories. Why would a parent withhold Christmas from their children? And what happens when that parent discovers the "reason for the season" themselves? For 30 years Sharon read the New World Translation of the Bible published by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, but did not know her Savior. To her and the rest of Jehovah's Witnesses the Bible taught that Jesus was not born in December and God was not pleased with us for celebrating His birth that month. When she left the teachings of Jehovah's Witnesses, however, her eyes opened to the joy of the birth of her Savior and her own value as a precious new born creation as well. Sharon invites us to see Christmas through her eyes...

Christmas Through My Eyes by Sharon Leasure

In June of 1980 as I studied the Bible with my Jehovah’s Witness aunt I began to learn the evils of Christmas and why it should be a holiday to avoid. Unlike all the other holidays this was the hardest of all to give up. I knew I wanted to live on a Paradise earth for all eternity and would do what I had to so I could achieve this goal. I was convinced that because Jesus was not born in December it would be dishonoring Him to recognize His birth on that day.However it never entered my mind to ask why we don’t celebrate it in October. I was taught to believe that the three wise men were men hated by Jehovah. Also Jesus was around two years old when they came, not an infant in a manger. So the whole nativity scene was wrong and to be a part of it would to be a part of a lie. Who is the father of the lie? Satan, so it would be Satan that we would be worshiping. Christmas is being celebrated on the same day as the Sun God thus being connected to pagan worship. I had so many reasons now to avoid this holiday and look down on those who celebrated it. I began pitying them for their lack of knowledge, if they only knew the truth. What a horrible holiday!

Offering You A Free Home Bible Study!



If someone came to your door with Bible in hand, talking about Jesus, but shared a different gospel, would you recognize it? What if the pastor at your church introduced one? Would you know the difference?

Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, 2 by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached to you, unless you believed in vain. 3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, (1 Corinthians 15:1-4 NASB)

The Apostle Paul said clearly that the gospel which saves and is of first importance is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This is the gospel he received and therefore presented to others. It was through their acceptance of that very same gospel that the churches in Galatia were birthed. Yet within a few years, Paul wrote with intense concern that they were now paying attention to a DIFFERENT gospel. Had they completely abandoned Christ? No, for he clarifies his statement that it's "really not another; only there are some who are disturbing you and want to distort the gospel of Christ." (Galatians 1:6-7 NASB)

According to Paul a distorted version is as good as saying it's a different gospel.

Why Galatians - Introduction to Galatians 101 Study

julieA Fall From Grace

In August of 2006, I began emailing with a pastor named Cletis Clayton. Cletis lived in South Dakota at the time and I was in Wisconsin where I received a weekly newspaper from his town of Hot Springs. I had been reading his series called “Jesus is Jehovah” in the church section of the paper. He became aware of the confusion I was in as a former Jehovah’s Witness unable to rid myself of their doctrine. Pastor Cletis continued to pray for me and entertain my questions through a flurry of emails.


Six months had passed and I sent this “breakthrough” email to Cletis on February 20, 2007

Nevertheless, those who receive instruction in the word should share all good things with their instructor. --Galatians  6:6

Good morning Cletis,

Actually the sun is beckoning my dog and I to share a walk, but first things first!

You suggested I re-read the Israel of God discourse you prepared. I did and once again couldn't help but be the devil's advocate and slip my Watchtower indoctrination in the sidebars. I think this is good though as it's really shining the light on the powerful hold the cult has on its adherents. Much like an addict having to come to that point of admitting his weakness before he can accept help, I have to continually bring this weakness to Jehovah and seek His truth on it. The Israel of God to a JW is only the 144,000 anointed ones, so when a JW reads about the Spirit indwelling or being born again it is only attributed to the Israel of God (the New Jerusalem, the anointed, the heavenly class, the remnant, blah, blah, blah). And my mind still follows that pattern in some warped logical reasoning. But it gets me mad and gets me thinking. It got me mad because I was being very encouraged by recent Bible reading (a lot in Romans) that had me crying thank you's to God because the verses were reaching me personally as an adopted child. When the Watchtower’s reasoning reared it's ugly head I sensed that loss of grace I'd been enjoying and went into guilt mode (such as "all things in Jude apply to me, an apostate"). So back to work I go. Work, I say, as in committing to prayer and reading this subject of 'who is the Israel of God?' So I have a little notebook to collect verses and insights on the subject of the Israel of God. Thought I'd share some with you.

2 Cor 5:17 says if ANYONE is in Christ, the new creation has come. And then goes on to say how God was reconciling the WORLD to himself in Christ. There is no two class system in this like what the Watchtower teaches. Anyone is just that, ANYONE, the world. If it only meant the 144,000 it should say so!

Galatians: An Important Letter

Galatians: An Important Letter

Paul's letter to the Galatians was REALLY powerful in loosening the locks on my brain put there by religion. It was the book in which I understood GRACE and was led to REPENT of my legalistic attitude that held me in bondage. I felt like I had been traveling backwards in a relationship with God instead of forward, but when I read Galatians 5:4, I understood why; I had FALLEN FROM GRACE.

You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. (Gal 5:4)

I understood how it happened too. I made the mistake of coming into agreement with the LIE that my religious works were better than what God had already done for me through Jesus Christ. It was a very humbling moment.

The letter was written by the apostle Paul to the churches of Galatia probably around AD 49. It's clear he's writing it as a warning to his Christian brethren to protect the faith they've already been given. Some were claiming they MUST get circumcised in order to be pleasing to God. Even though circumcision is not a big issue in most churches today, it’s a relevant letter to Christians in our era according to the introduction in my NASB Study Bible, "All theologies that teach salvation by faith plus human effort are forcefully negated by this great letter."

What “human effort" have you been told you must add to your faith for salvation?

Would you like to discuss this letter over the phone with Julie?

The First Annual WNFJ Midwest Conference!

Julie with Charles and Donna Smith and Ray

We came from Missouri, Indiana, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Florida, Georgia, California, Colorado, and Maine! Eleven states represented at one small Midwestern conference. I'd say that's a pretty good start!

Charles and Donna Smith didn't know what to expect when they agreed to organize and host the first ever Witnesses Now for Jesus Conference in Farmington, Missouri this past July but when they committed to do it, people came from all over. And what a blessing that gathering proved to be!
