I recently received an invitation to a Kingdom Hall Answers service. It was enclosed with a hand written note.
Someone actually took time to send it.
I've composed a response, based on my understanding and experience with JWs. It is a difficult witness,
but then Who do I have Faith in, Yes He can do Incredible things.
As there is much wise counsel here, Please read the following and advise.
Such nice handwriting, yet I hope I read and spelled your name correctly.
To do such a hand written note, to me, is a mark of sincerity. Thank You.
Sadly my writing skills are not as graceful so I have typed this for you. I hope you will none the less be able to return the favor and read my response to your invitation as it is sincere in its intent.
To study about Jesus is a passion of mine, because I know Him. Anyone can. All it takes is a reliable Bible translated by faithful people.
The Watchtower Society has repeatedly failed in this. The New World Translation was originally published by individuals who in court testified they had no working knowledge of Greek. This implied a mostly plagiarized bible translation.
CT Russell and the leadership that followed augmented this failure by leading a church with false prophecies not simply stated from the pulpit, but openly published in their own Watchtowers. These are documented failures which condemn the Jehovah’s Witnesses as false prophets.
Matthew 7:15 NKJV
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves.
Deuteronomy 18:21-22 NKJV
21And if you say in your heart, ‘How shall we know the word which the Lord has not spoken?’
22 when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing does not happen or come to pass, that is the thing which the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously; you shall not be afraid of him.
The Watchtower claims inerrancy, but over the years has had to repeatedly revise and update their “perfect” bible when challenged with real Scripture.
No doubt the fellowship within your group is a prized possession. The generous acts of service with the Kingdom Hall are designed to fetter and blind its membership to the True Gospel of Jesus Christ – Fully God, Fully Man: The Propitiation for our sins, the Savior of our souls.
Perhaps you will tear up this letter, perhaps it has fallen on unseeing eyes; but maybe you will be brave enough to test the Spirit in which it is sent.
Don’t believe me, examine the JWs. Look into their publications, older texts, falsehoods that they knowingly hide from you.
Perhaps you may even venture to read a trustworthy Bible for yourself. [I find a New King James Version very readable, but KJV, NASB are other reliable translations]. Regardless, the Jesus I know is that powerful, that loving, that He opens eyes to see and hearts to know Him – as He is.
No man can deliver what Christ has in store for you.
My prayer is for you, to be freed from the darkness of the JW’s false christ.
I am the [Only] Way, the [Only] Truth, the [Only] Life. No one comes to the Father but by Me.
