|A Closer Walk|
We cordially invite you to spend a few minutes with us on this website. It may change your life, not only this life but your eternal life. There may be a variety of reasons why you came to this site. Whatever the reason this site truly applies to every individual who enters these pages, young or old, male or female.
The word "Apologetic" Catalog means we have a collection of writings, graphics, videos, audios, pamphlets and ministries in defense of, or vindicating the Word of God.
Jehovah's Witnesses are encouraged to go door to door in their communities, which is considered to be of value to God and their own spiritual welfare, which is commendable, but not a requirement to gain salvation. Jesus Christ, contrary to the Watchtower doctrine, is God in flesh, who laid down His life for our sins. We cannot get rid of our sins but through Him. He is the only one who can assure us salvation and eternal life in heaven, which the Watchtower doctrine does not teach.
The Gospel is simple. Due to our lineage to Adam and Eve and their sin of giving authority to the serpent "devil" and turning away from God, Adam and his progeny, were sentenced to die physically. God, in His mercy and love for His creation, which includes His sons and daughters, changed that sentence for those who would prefer to be ruled by God instead of Satan. To make certain that this regeneration of man's spirit by the Holy Spirit, would take place, God came down to earth in the body of His only begotten Son. He allowed Himself to be crucified for the sins of the world, by shedding His blood: a requirement for sin.
God allowed His physical life to be taken so we could receive His Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit regenerates us and teaches us the Word of God. In other words we are "born again" at that time. The Word of God cannot be understood without the Holy Spirit's help. To receive Him we need to repent of our past and ask God for forgiveness. At the moment we do just that, we receive the Holy Spirit into our hearts and are sealed for eternal life in heaven as the Bride of Christ.
If you are a Jehovah's Witness reading this witness, you probably cannot identify with this information. The Watchtower does not teach that there is a Holy Spirit which means that JWs do not believe in a triune God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, who are ONE God. They do not believe that Jesus is God but that Jesus is the Archangel Michael. As a Jehovah's Witness, you do not expect to gain eternal salvation but paradise during the thousand year millennium. You believe that only a privileged 144,000 JWs go to heaven which excludes you. That is not what God had in mind. He is no respecter of persons. Jesus purchased all of mankind with His blood. Eternal life with Him is available for all who want to receive the inheritance.
A testament is a gift which a dead individual leaves behind. The Bible consists of an Old Testament and a New Testament. The Old Testament offered death, the New Testament offers eternal life in Him, Jesus Christ, the Son of God. The person of Jesus Christ had to die physically, for us to receive the inheritance. The only way we can receive it, though, is by becoming God's sons and daughters, not the Watchtower's sons and daughters. The Jehovah's Witnesses do not have any such promises because it can't fulfill them without the Holy Spirit, a New Testament nor a Crucifixion of a perfect only begotten Son.
The biblical 144,000 are 12,000 each of the twelve Israeli tribes who will be sealed during the tribulation to fulfill the promise to Abraham. They cannot possibly be Gentiles of any kind. The Watchtower proves over and over that it fails to interpret the Bible correctly by changing its premises from time to time.
We truly believe that Jehovah's Witnesses will not even make it to the Millennium because they do not avail themselves of the Word of God, the Authorized King James Bible, the Gospel, and therefore do not have His protection. They study instead only verses out of context and often from the New World Translation, which is altered. Verses out of context are not enough to understand the Word of God.
There are a number of former Jehovah's Witnesses who love their former fellow members, as we all do, enough to take their precious time and talk and write about their experiences and why they left. This is a work of love. If you are not interested in eternal life in heaven, this site is not for you.
Since the world at present is ruled by the Prince of this world who does not practice truth, we have been commanded by the Gospel to tell others what we have discovered.
"Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them.
"For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
"And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light. Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light." (Ephesians 5:6-14)
"God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)
To prove Scriptures Eph. 5:6-14, the world will have us believe that Zebras or any other creation is the product of accidental happenings through billions of years of evolution? So far it is only a theory and will remain such. There is no evidence to the contrary and is an impossibility statistically.
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee..." (Hosea 4:6)
