Who Truly Are Jehovah’s Witnesses?

Interestingly, a handful of religion is defending the religion of Jehovah’s Witnesses in regards to the recent Russian band against the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (the legal name of Jehovah’s Witnesses religion).

The truth of the matter is that if those religions only knew how Jehovah’s Witnesses despise them, they probably wouldn’t feel like defending them at all.

But why am I saying this?

What do I know about Jehovah’s Witness?

Well, I know pretty much everything there is to know about it, because I used to be one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and today I am doing my share of work to let the world know about this religion through my bilingual YouTube channel and other articles.

So, who Jehovah’s Witnesses really are?

Jehovah’s Witnesses are those well-dressed and well-groomed people that knock on your door on Saturday or Sunday morning or stand at the corner of just about every city of the free world with their magazine carts.

While for most people outside of the religion they just look like humble smiling well-groomed and polite people, the typical Jehovah’s Witness believes that he or she has the TRUTH, because they belong to the ONLY truth religion while you are part of Satan’s world.

As a matter of fact, Jehovah’s Witnesses have a name for people who are not Jehovah’s Witnesses, they call them worldly people and it’s a pejorative term.

When they knock on your door it’s not so much out of love for you, but more because they’re trying to save their own skin while keeping up with the demands of their leadership to preach a certain amount of hours each month.

The average member in the religion is judged a great deal by the amount of time they spend preaching “the good news” to worldly people.

But before I go on, I want the reader to understand that the average Jehovah’s Witness is just a victim.

The victim a huge organization that they believe to be Jehovah’s Organization, but which in fact is a man-made organization that’s fooling them to the highest degree.

Absence of Self

Jehovah’s Witnesses have no sense of self, and that’s even more so the case for those who grew up in the religion.

To be a Jehovah’s Witness you have to forsake your education, your passions, your personal tastes, and anything that’s related to YOU.

It’s all about the Almighty God Jehovah and his organization.

You can’t date like most people do, you can’t dress or groom yourself the way you want, and you can’t listen to the music you want, or watch the type movies you want…

But most importantly, going to college and pursuing a career or passion is strongly frowned upon.

In case they are forgetting any of those rules members receive plenty of propaganda in the form of talks, articles, and videos that remind them of that on a regular basis.

As a matter of fact, as a Jehovah’s Witness, the ONLY thing you should be really concentrating on is preaching about the end of this world. Nothing else has real value in the life of a Jehovah’s Witness.

Lost love

Jehovah’s Witnesses are encouraged to snitch on each other.

If a member sees another member smoking, for example, they are trained to report what they saw to the elders (the leaders of their local congregation).

Ironically, leaders of Jehovah’s Witnesses churches (called congregations) are quicker to disfellowship (excommunicate) someone caught smoking than someone accused of pedophilia.

This is probably the reason why in recent years the organization of Jehovah’s Witnesses has had to pay millions of dollars in pedophilia court cases they’ve lost against victims of abuse in the US, Canada, the UK and Australia.

This is a facet of the Watchtower that the average member is fully blind and deaf to until they wake up.

Those who do, usually start to understand that there’s definitely something not right and even wicked about it this religion.

For most of ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses, it’s only when they leave the religion and hear one ugly true story after the other that they are able to recognize a pattern.

They can’t help but notice as they dig into their former religion’s history that there is an unmistakably wicked pattern where the victims seem to be especially women and children.

That same religion which they used to believe to be the only true and most clean religion there was. The organization of the only true God Jehovah.

This is because the Watchtower is a true master of deception.

Victims of Their Own Beliefs

The leadership of the religion of Jehovah’s Witnesses has managed to make perfectly normal people act like cold-hearted robots who can turn their back on their best friend, their mother, their father, their son, their daughter, their brother or their sister as if they were dead, if those decided to leave the religion or be disfellowshipped from it.

This type of experiences is lived by thousands of ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses today.

Even though my brother and I didn’t grow up in this religion but became adepts as adults, my brother has not spoken or written to me in 10 years, not even to let me know that our mother passed away.

As a matter of fact, Jehovah’s Witnesses might be the coldest people you’d ever suspected when you see those smiling well-dressed individuals in the streets or at your door step.

For the most part, it’s not because they are bad, but because they are fully indoctrinated individuals who don’t act on common sense, but on doctrines.

They don’t report pedophiles to police due to a misunderstood scripture in the Bible. And they shun their very family members treating them as if they were dead due to another misunderstood Bible scripture.

Yet, again they’d rather die or let their child die rather than accepting a blood transfusion also because of a misunderstanding of a Bible verse.

Their strong conviction that they are God’s people has made them blind stiff.

But there is yet more of an evil side to this religion.

Subliminal Images in their literature

Needless to say that the world of marketing and advertising is full of subliminal images, but the Watchtower is using subliminal images to a whole different level.

Artists of the religion craft evil and sexually provocative subliminal images for all members (and anyone reading their literature) to see, including children.

As a coach well versed in the subconscious mind programming, hypnosis and subliminal messages I am not surprised that so many people in this religion are emotionally, psychologically and physically unhealthy. I’d be surprised if they were not.

It is not clear why the Watchtower is using subliminal images of harmful nature, but it’s safe to assume that like everything else that they do, it’s to have more control over their members. Fear being one of the favorite tools.

For those who have managed to escape this unhealthy cult rather unharmed, we can only be thankful that we did, even though there is basically not a single ex-Jehovah’s Witness that is totally unharmed in one way or another.

Thankfully, though, most ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses are able to enjoy normal happy lives, eventually, even if they had to recover and for some are still recovering from the damages that they suffered by being and exiting the cult.
