Most holidays are rejected by Jehovah’s Witnesses and although most Christians celebrate Easter, Jehovah’s Witnesses only celebrate the Lord’s Supper (Evening Meal). In a meeting called “the Memorial,” commemorate Jesus’ death by passing unleavened bread and wine to represent emblems of Christ’s sacrifice. At this event, only a select few Jehovah’s Witnesses are allowed to partake. Although the majority of Jehovah’s Witnesses do not believe they are worthy enough to be “in the New Covenant,” they celebrate this event annually by passing the emblems among themselves without partaking. This meeting is one of the few meetings that Ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses attend primarily as it is one of the only times they will be able to see their family members. If you’re a former Jehovah’s Witness, you may be dealing with many questions…
Should I go this year? What if I do? What if I don’t? Am I suppose to observe or partake? Can only the 144,000 partake? Who can take of the bread and the cup? Are their requirements to take of the bread and the cup? Is there anything I must do before I take of the bread and the cup?
Walk away with answers!
