A new feature-length documentary, Truth Be Told lifts the veil on the seemingly benign Jehovah's Witnesses religion to expose a profit-driven, isolationist culture characterized by fear, totalitarian corporate leadership, intellectual and spiritual intimidation, suspension of critical thinking, failed prophecies, doctrinal inconsistency, and improper handling of physical and sexual abuse allegations within the church.

Great summarization of the Jehovah'sWitness cult, which the WBTS does not want leaked!!

See former Jehovah's Witnesses candidly discuss growing up inside the religion. They reveal experiences including the effects of proselytizing door-to-door, shunning non-observant family and friends, suffering the discouragement of pursuing dreams like higher education, missing other societal holidays and customs, and much more.

Ultimately, the film reveals why Jehovah's Witnesses have the lowest retention rate of any Christian denomination, with only 37% of those raised in the church continuing their affiliation as adults.

Yeah, the WBTS is surely going to encourage every Jehovah's Witness to go see this and discuss at the next meeting, aren't they??
LOL!
Probably a disfellowshipping offense if you go to a viewing!

Jehovah's witnesses don't care what anyone else on this earth believes or thinks is true or whatever they have to say about the visible earthly organization of Almighty God Jehovah and his named witnesses. John 15:19

Any negative oration against Jehovah's witnesses is to be expected, because Jesus said he came to earth to cause a division between people, especially against his true followers, those who imitate and obey his new Law given to mankind. Matthew 22:37-39 John 3:36

Ex Jehovah's witnesses have lost God's approval, and they will do anything they can and say whatever they can to make Jehovah's witnesses look bad to justify their being turned over to Satan the Devil. 1Corinthians 5:5

Do you really believe this BS?

If Jehovah's witnesses were "approved" by everybody then you would say?

"its to be expected, because Jesus said he came to earth not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance"?

(Mark 2:17,...They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.")

JWs preach about the "visible earthly organization".
FYI- us non-JWs call this a "golden calf".

***
But it is by faith that we are saved.

Ephesians 2:
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—
9 not by works, so that no one can boast.

Hebrews 11:
1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
2 This is what the ancients were commended for.
3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
4 By faith Abel brought God a better offering than Cain did. By faith he was commended as righteous, when God spoke well of his offerings. And by faith Abel still speaks, even though he is dead......

You may find this hard to believe, but its not because of the name of God or Jesus, where most people have a problem with the JW religion. Its this so-called "visible earthly organization" where we take exception.

This "visible earthly organization" is a marketing tool used by the WTS not to lead you (JWs) to Jesus Christ but to steal you for their own purposes.

There is no scripture that says anything about the WTS or JW religion being necessary for salvation. Scripture is clear. Jesus Christ is the ONLY name we need for salvation.

The WTS organization is not only unnecessary, it is also a stumbling block, between JWs and Jesus Christ. Yes, you can be a christian without being a Jehovah Witness. But you have to follow Christ, not the "visible earthly organization".

Yet you think that anyone cares what the org has to say about other religions and they say a lot.

Ex Jws have lost the approval of the gb, nothing more.

If these people are lying, the org's lawyers would be all over it, they aren't so that says a lot.

so many scriptures that Jesus applied to the Pharisees can be applied to the watchtower leaders. also Ezekiell 13 and 2nd Corinthians 11 perfectly describes them.
a perfect example of how through deceitful works they keep transforming themselves into ministers of righteousness, is the donation arrangement. they told their followers worldwide they did this to be the last like Chris and um and more Christ like. in reality they had filed a friend of the court brief in behalf of Jimmy Swaggart's taxation case, when this was lost they switched the donation arrangements immediately so as not to be taxed retroactively, bottom line. what they told their followers was a lie to appear to be righteous. this is not something the true servant of Jesus and Yahweh would do. there is so much evidence of them lying how can you follow these men as light bearers? the good news is that we have been reconciled to God, that we can all be called his sons and daughters if we have faith that he is I loving Heavenly Father. like the Pharisees they do not enter into the kingdom of heaven and inhibit anyone on their way in. they also steal the baptism of the Spirit sense if you do not believe in it you cannot receive it, this adoption is real and held out to all mankind who seek God and His righteousness.

also jesus said to the Pharisees that they invalidate the Word of God and worship Him and vein since they teach commands of man is doctrine. buy their own admission, by changing doctrine such as the organ transplant prohibition, they have murdered countless Witnesses. if Jesus is condemned the Pharisees for making demands that caused dishonouring of their mother and father, how much more so that if caused the death rapess tortures empresa meant and murder of their followers. this happened due to their prohibition on anything political, now how much of this has become a conscience matter, such as the buying of political party cards that caused the brutal treatment of witnesses for a decade. as the Pharisees presumptuously sat on the throne of Moses these men sit in Christ's throne . they even admit and the July 15th study article they have not been appointed as the faithful and discreet slave yet. yet presumptuously claim they are. those who exalts themselves will be humbled!

If Jws have it so right with Gods Holy spirit then why did Jesus tell charles taze russel that the end was coming in 1914 and it didnt come.
Then he dided and guess what the holy spirit moved Russell to predict 1925 as armageddon it didnt happen. look up deuteronmy 18:22.

Then jesus as head of the congregation told the GB recently that such things as " To settle that question, jesus began to inspect the spiritual temple in 1914. That inspection and cleansing work involved a period of time from 1914 tot eh early part of 1919"

or

"Finally we examined why jesus arrival to appoint the faithful slave over all his belongings did not occur in 1919 but will take place during the great tribulation.

That means the gb have not been apponted it said it in there words plus it means Jehovah is playing messed up games with the light getting brighter and jesus as head of the congregation must be geeting anooyed becasue hes having to keep going back and forth as our mediator and telling the gb that its changed again.

These for examople just prove there wrong and just admit it youve been duped like alot have. The dates are nmot biblical its just made up stuff and plus ive heard splane say ' we just love this idea' even a memeber of the gb put themselves in it and admitted its just an idea and when there all dead some other guy will think of summets to make up and rectify what these current memebers have done.

Its laughable.

The WTS does not hesitate to file lawsuits if they can find any loophole whatsoever to squash any negative exposure.

When they don't immediately file suit, you can be absolutely sure that what is being said is truthful, even if it doesn't make the JWs look good.

That's generally when they start "warning" the JWs not to watch it because it is from "Satan." Any thinking JW SHOULD, at that point, be resolved to do the exact opposite in order to discover WHY the Society doesn't want them to watch it...but they won't.

this is true, and I think they know there is going to be more bad publicity, they are trying to create the problem within the congregation causing divisions among brothers that even speculate to mark them, and calling the media evil read on....
