Letters to Witnesses For Jesus, Inc.
- How the Ministry of Witnesses for Jesus Impacts Lives
YOUR WEBSITE IS A GOOD SOURCE FOR THOSE SERIOUSLY SEEKING THE TRUTH…
“Your website is a great source for those seriously seeking the truth.… The [Jehovah’s Witness] elders shun me. I’ve known these guys for 30 years if you could imagine that. Well, when I walk into the Hall they turn their backs to me. I have not seen my [Jehovah’s Witness] ex-wife, or daughter for 2 years. I have an elder’s address to write and he screens my mail. They hide my family from me. When I go to their homes, they smile with arms folded and say nothing.
The stories I read at your website were loud and clear - conditional love by the "brothers"! I have learned more in the [Christian] Church about unconditional love than 30 years as a Witness. When I accepted Christ, who he really is, the Holy Spirit opened my eyes to see both sides clearly, the Scriptures for what they really say, and the Society for what they really say. (or don’t say). Without the Holy Spirit it is impossible to know the real TRUTH! Keep up your good work. It gives me a good source as a reference for curious Brothers [Jehovah’s Witnesses]... Kind of like a REAL Reasoning book!” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
I LOVE THIS WEBSITE!
“I just wanted to write and tell you that your website is absolutely FANTASTIC and invaluable. Thank you so much for providing fantastic resources that true Christians can use to reach out in love to those caught in the lie of Mormonism and the Watchtower Society. I love this website.” (From our www.4witness.org website)
YOUR EX-JW SUPPORT GROUP MEETUP WEBSITE IS A GOD SEND...
“Heh everyone, Thank you so much for all of your input! ...I have shared all of your thoughts with my mother and she to is inspired. You all have no idea how inspired I am. I have done so much praying lately its making me giddy. I know that sounds silly, but I have been missing Jehovah sooo badly. This whole website has been a God send. I have believed since I was disfellowshipped that until I was a Witness again I could not talk to Jehovah. I couldn't face him. I have told him how much I love him, how much I've missed him. I have thanked him for the Sun, the Moon, the stars, and for finding this website! I feel in my heart that I will one day see my brother again, I have hope...” (from our ExJW Support Group Meetup Website)
GOD BLESS YOU FOR THE DIFFERENCE YOU ARE MAKING...
“My brother and I were raised by a Jehovah's Witness mother. I am 52 years old now and still haven't been able to shake the stigma of the experience. My brother wasn't as lucky as me and ended up taking his own life at 17. I have been through everything from therapy to hypnosis to try and heal from the scars of my religious upbringing. Nothing seems to repair the damage. I can't help feel that there are others out there like me who were left alone and hurting and would benefit from one and others understanding and caring. I can't express how much I appreciate what you are doing... I'm impressed with what I have read so far. I could go on and on about the trauma, but I know you have been there. Take care and God bless for the difference you are making.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
I PRAYED TO JESUS FOR SALVATION AFTER I READ YOUR ARTICLE...
“Hi…I am an Ex-Jehovah’s Witness from South Africa. I am always searching and pondering about God. I left the Jehovah’s Witnesses not because I did not agree with their beliefs, but because my wife could not handle it me being a Jehovah’s Witness and she not. I became an anti-religious person. Then, just as I was about to enter the Jehovah’s Witnesses again, God led me to your website… Today, I prayed to Jesus for salvation after I read your article on your website…” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
I LOVE THOSE LDS AND JW WITNESSING CARD TRACTS!
“Loved the cards [JW Cards & LDS Cards]. I printed them out and will use them! I will give them to my Sunday School class members and they will use them when they are greeted at the door! Thanks!” (from our www.4witness.org website)
THIS SITE HAS GIVEN ME A PEACE I HAVEN’T FELT FOR 10 YEARS…
“I’m thanking and praising the Lord everyday for your wonderful organization. I have become friends and e-mail support for one who I met here on your site. She has become a wonderful witness and support for me fighting the “bondage” that my JW friend is in. They “got” him when he came home in pieces from Vietnam. This site has given me peace I haven’t felt for ten years. It’s so comforting to know that incredible prayer warriors are out there in the trenches every day fighting against Satan’s grip on these poor people. GOD BLESS YOU REALLY BIG!” (from our www.4witness.org website)
THANKS FOR YOUR DEDICATION TO THE LORD JESUS!
“Hello. Just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for all the hard work you have done on researching the claims of the Jehovah's witnesses and Mormon religions. I have used your information to educate myself and also to help witness the real Jesus/Gospel/Spirit to those trapped in those false religious systems here in Salt Lake City.
I'm an airline pilot. For one whole month I had a Mormon Captain and a Jehovah's Witness flight attendant! I had your materials with me when we flew together. We went round-and-round all month. It got to the point where they actually put aside their differences and joined forces against me and the truth of God's Word. It was a great time! Unfortunately, they are both still in their cults, but the seed of God's word was planted and watered in both of them. Thanks again. Your work is having an eternal impact. God Bless You!” (from our witforjesus.org website)
I HAVE BEEN READING LETTERS ON THE WEBSITE... I AM SO OVERWHELMED...
“I have been reading letters on the website. I don’t know if I have sent you an email before, but I just have to say I am so overwhelmed. I have been disfellowshipped since 2000 and I do feel lost spiritually. I have tried to go back on numerous occasions but to no avail... Anyway, this is so hard. My story is long, covering 30 years… I think about Jehovah daily and yet cannot form a prayer for help. Have I come to the right place in your website? I would welcome some help and encouragement.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
YOUR WEBSITE SAVED MY LIFE!
“I have been a baptized Witness since 1995, and I have to tell you how you have saved my life. Every couple of years I get this gnawing sense that this is not quite right, that I am not 100% vested in what the [Watchtower] Society says. I believe most things, but don’t agree with a few biggies: not accepting blood, the faithful and discreet slave, and more. Lately, I have stopped attending meetings and my daughter, 13, has begged me not to make her go back. So I have been praying and chatting with friends outside the organization (can you believe I have those?) and with one friend in the Truth [Jehovah's Witness religion]. I can’t tell you my sense of relief when I stumbled upon your site and started to read the articles. I want to cry, but I’m at work. I can’t wait to get home because I am so excited I can barely stand it! Please, please, how can I meet others who feel this way? I sure could use the fellowship. Again, thanks for the work you do.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
I MYSELF WAS A MORMON… YOUR WEBSITE TOUCHED ME…
“I am contacting you to express to you how much the information that you offer in your website touched me. I myself was a Mormon. And it was not long after I stopped taking their word for it and research the history and the doctrine as a whole my self (not just the pieces that they tell you to notice) did I notice that it was a lie, laced with God’s (Word) truth. The information that you offer about what the LDS believe is correct and I am glad that you are letting God use you in this ministry. It is so important to have the information exposed for what it really is. I can truly say that the LDS Church does not know Christ. I know that there are many of them that do not even know what they are part of and all they know is that they have Zeal for God, but they are so confused that they really can’t put up a relative argument in their behalf. Still they believe in it, even with so much proof that the Mormon Church was fabricated in Joseph Smith Jr.’s mind along with the help of Satan. I love so many of the LDS members and many of my family are members. I pray daily for them to see the truth (LDS and nonbelievers) and have shed my share of tears on their behalf. But there is that Zeal that they can’t get over, and face the fact that they believe in lies in the name of God. It reminds me of this Scripture...
‘For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone that believeth.’ ~Romans: 10:2-4~
I am from Utah, and God knows that we need more people in this area teaching truth and love. But again, I am grateful and you are letting God use you. Thank you and God Bless. God is an awesome God, faithful and loving, and I know he will see me through.” (from our www.4mormon.org website)
I LOVE THE WEBSITE AND WILL BE INCLUDING IT AS A REFERENCE POINT FOR TEACHERS IN THE UNITED KINGDOM...
“I just wanted to let you know that I am developing some support materials for UK primary schools based on a children’s story I wrote about a melting iceberg... One section within those materials will show how different faiths feel about climate change and what the messages are for their faithful. I love the website and will be including it as a reference point for teachers under a section about the link between the issues facing us and our various religious faiths…” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
I’M SURE THAT IT WAS THE HOLY SPIRIT THAT DIRECTED ME TO ALL OF YOU!
“After reading what David Reed wrote [“Don’t Leave Jehovah by letting some man-made organization come between you and the invisible God” article], I’ve looked at things in ‘a new light’ so-to-speak. I didn’t know that it was man who started the organization, and that faithful prophets were outcasts. Yes, JW’s use the “It’s us against them,” and I didn’t remember Jesus calling God anything other than “Father.” I’m so glad that I have run across this site. I’m sure that it was the Holy Spirit that directed me to all of you!” (from our Ex-JW Support Group Meetup Website)
YOUR DVDS ARE INCREDIBLE!
“The video you sent me that was 3 1/2 hours long [“Answering Questions Your Jehovah’s Witness Friends Ask DVD”] was INCREDIBLE!!! I watched the whole thing in one sitting and I learned more then I ever would have guessed. Thank you so much. I have passed it on to my mother and I have a few others I would like to watch it. It was very informative and dealt in facts. I do love things that deal in facts and not interpretation. I have yet to watch the other DVDs you sent, but will get to them as well. I must say, you have made a huge difference... God bless you!” (from our www.4witness.org website)
GOD USED YOUR SITE AND MATERIALS AGAIN… WE ARE EXITING OUR 2ND CULT!
“Hello again! It’s been a while since I wrote. I’ve been going through a lot. Our whole family has been. I have to write to you now and tell you that God used your site and materials again to minister to me and my family. We are exiting what will be my 2nd cult! Oh my! Remember …a few years ago …I studied JW’s …I was actually raised in a cult-like atmosphere too… It paralleled the JW mindset as I read up on it… You and I had hours of talking and prayers. I had a renewed joy and peace with Jesus. Well, I didn’t quite ‘get it’. I was at the time and until recently involved in a 2nd group… It is like a cult, too!!!
Our family is in much confusion and pain. The guilt, condemnation, and rejection we are currently experiencing is so horrible. Your talks with me and the material, and Scriptures of course, is what God used these past 2 1/2 years to continue to minister to me and make me uncomfortable with what I saw and personally experienced. But God has been faithful… Thank you for your prayers… God is showing so much mercy and love to our family. He is being the tender Shepherd. His mercies are new every morning. I just praise Him for what He is doing in our hearts, lives, and minds! Thank you once again for this ministry. I’ve been reading things on here of what identifies a cult. It has been so helpful. It is so verifying for me. That is a comfort… God bless you and each one God has used in this ministry!” (from our www.4witness.org website)
WE ARE USING YOUR MATERIALS TO TRAIN YOUNG PEOPLE GOING TO UTAH...
“You continue to bless us in sooo many ways... We are using some of your website material to train some young people that will be going up to Utah this year… We look forward to what you have to offer as far as a DVD [LDS Questions: Answering Questions Your Mormon Friends Ask] so keep up the good work. Many blessing to you…” (from our www.4witness.org website)
I WISH I KNEW OF YOUR WEBSITE SOONER…
“Bless you for your diligent work and perseverance. I grew up watching my mother study with the Witnesses and attending their Memorial, though she never fully became involved daily with them. When I became a [Christian] believer in college, my mother started seeing the fruit of the Spirit grow in me, and a dialogue was opened. I was completely inadequate as a young girl and new Christian to answer any of her questions or to challenge her long-held views of Jesus Christ, but the Lord was sufficient. My mother diligently searched and fed her need to understand the differences in the Witnesses’ view of Jesus and Christianity’s embrace of Him. After several heart-wrenching years, she said good-bye to the Witnesses and their hold on her and hello to the God of the Bible. I wish I had known your site as a resource back then. I can’t tell you how much my heart is moved to see this mission addressed. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for doing a very important piece of work for our God. I’m excited to worship our Lord with you in Heaven.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESEARCH ON THE TRINITY...
“I’ve been trying to debate Trinity with Jehovah’s Witnesses. They are very well studied. Tonight was about John 1:1. I bought several of your books a few days ago. I also went to the library and read about the church councils to check the JW’s statements. I also studied a few Greek grammar texts on John 1:1. I’ve put in more hours than I want to admit on the Trinity study over the last 4 months and found I’m just scratching the surface of the debate. I think your development of literature is excellent work - about 100 times the investment I’ve put in, and I thought I did a lot of research.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
MY HUSBAND'S FAMILY IS LDS... PLEASE KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
“Hi There! I am a Christian living in a Mormon Community (I live in Utah)… My husband’s family is all LDS ...The reason for my email it to thank you for what you do here on this site! It is truly amazing… Please keep up the good work…” (from our www.4mormon.org website)
YOUR SITE IS A HUGE RESOURCE FOR ME HERE IN AUSTRALIA...
“Thanks for your wonderful ministry. I really became interested in witnessing to Jehovah Witnesses last year and look forward to their visits. Your site has been a great and blessed resource for me. Thanks again for your ministry. May the Lord continue to bless it. God bless you my brothers.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
YOUR KAREN AND CINDY (JW VS CHRISTIAN CONVERSATIONS) ARE ENORMOUSLY HELPFUL!
“Thank you very, very kindly for your detailed reply and links to the 4jehovah.org site and the [Ex-JW] support group. Your reply regarding baptism as a Christian made sense to me. I feel encouraged by your help. I am currently studying each and every page of the Karen & Cindy studies, looking up every Bible passage. They are very well put together, very well documented, with references and all, enormously helpful!” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
I AM AN EX-JEHOVAH'S WITNESS FROM THAILAND... ALL THIS TIME, I HAVE BEEN STRUGGLING WHAT THE TRUTH REALLY IS...
“We watched some of your seminars on You-Tube and just wanted to say thank you very much for the hard work you put into researching about the truth. Praise be to God [Who] put this desire in your heart to help Jehovah’s Witnesses. I am an ex- Jehovah Witness from Thailand, but now live in London. I have been married with my Christian wife for more than two years now, and all this time, I have been struggling with the question what the truth really is. Now, especially after watching your scripts, I am really convinced [in the Christian way]. Once again, thank you, and May God bless you abundantly in delivering His message to save those people. We’ll pray for your mission...” (from our www.4witness.org You-tube videos)
I HAVE BEEN STUDYING WITH JW'S... YOUR WEBSITE HAS HELPED ME PUT THINGS IN PERSPECTIVE...
“Thank you for your website and the information in it. Although I am not a Jehovah’s Witness, I have been “studying” with one of its members. Although I do agree with some of the teachings, I do not agree with the claims of being the only vehicle of God’s Word in this age. I also have issues with the governing structure and cult-like opposition to questioning doctrine and de-emphasis of Christ’s sacrifice for our sins. Your website has helped me put things in perspective. Thanks again for the hard work that goes into an effort such as this. I for one appreciate it very much.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
I LIVE IN UTAH... I KEEP YOUR WEBSITE HANDY BECAUSE... SOONER OR LATER ANOTHER MORMON MISSIONARY WILL SHOW UP AT YOUR DOOR...
“I live in Utah and last week I was approached by a couple of Mormon missionaries. After a short discussion on baptisms for the dead, I invited them to re-read I Corrinthians and get back with me a few days later. Meanwhile, I took a little time to search your website and prepare myself for their next visit. I must say that I was very impressed and the information you provided was quite educational, and it made me feel quite prepared for their next visit... Keep up the good work. Unfortunately, the missionaries never returned like they said they would, but I’ll keep your website handy, because there’s one thing that’s for certain in Utah...sooner or later another Mormon missionary will show up at your door. As a Christian song writer, I’ve used my music to kind of kick off discussions about the differences between the Mormon religion and mine(they are quick to point out how I use God, Jesus, and Lord intermittently, and how faith alone won’t get you to heaven). Now that I’ve seen your website, I can address many of the other differences and contradictions that I wasn’t even aware of before. Thanks again for helping me get greater strength and confidence though preparedness. Please pray that my discussions with them are taken in a loving way. Thanks again.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
YOUR WEBSITE CONFIRMED A LOT OF STUFF I’VE FELT ABOUT JWS...
“Hi , I’m an Ex-JW. I recently stumbled across 4witness.org and was very surprised! I never knew about it, but I’m glad I found it because it confirmed a lot of stuff I’ve felt about them.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
THANKS FOR THE ENCOURAGING VIDEO - I AM NOT WHO I WAS...
“I was a JW for 26 faithful years!!! I am finally free the last 6 years. I am still confused as what I believe anymore, but I do believe there is a God and I want to find out what He wants from me. I am still so very confused. I am writing this because I was looking at your site and saw the video “I’m not who I was,” I was so moved with emotion. I saw all those happy faces. People who have found God again in the correct way. Leaving the organization is one thing… finding out how to serve God in the right way is so confusing. I suppose it is from all the years of being brainwashed. It is my hope that someday I will find the true way to serve God. It is very difficult to be so confused after being faithful so very long. Thanks for that encouraging video. It gave me hope.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
I AM A FORMER MORMON. I NOW HAVE MUCH PEACE KNOWING THE TRUTH...
“I just wanted to thank you for this great teaching site. I am a former Mormon. I now have much peace knowing the truth. I am a new believer of Jesus in the way he would want me to know him and of his love for me. I have been born again for a little over a year. Thank You! Please pray for myself and my family. I still have thoughts of the Mormon ways. How controlling it can be. What release I have found now. I found your website through the radio program that comes on in the evening. I will share with others the links that you have provided.” (from our www.4mormon.org website)
THE LAST TIME I CRIED WAS 27 YEARS AGO…
“I have just read Tammie’s [exJW] story and it made me cry. I never cry about anything and quite well known as a hard guy. I have served with the special forces in the UK and used to hate God. I even used to pray, saying how much I hated him. I know how evil this is and I am very ashamed of it, but at least you can understand that I am used to seeing bad things and am very rarely shaken.
I studied with JW’s for a while and thought it was all great until a lot of them lied to me during a business deal that cost me thousands of pounds. When I started to research the people who owed me money, one of them is still an elder. I discovered that he was having an affair and that a lot of people knew about it. I noticed how many people were leading double lives and claiming to have the truth. My sister is still in, but I stay away from them all. I do feel so lost. I find it hard to pray because I cannot forgive myself for the things I have done, and know I do not deserve the forgiveness of the Most High.
I just wanted to thank you for a great site and to ask you to extend my thanks to Tammie for her bravery in telling her story. It has really struck a cord with me, but I do not know why. It was the line: “I didn’t understand about the angels rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents but that must have been what happened. I remember saying later, ‘I got saved today,’” that made me cry. The last time I cried was 27 years ago. Many thanks again.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
A MAN IN OUR CHURCH WENT TO THAILAND AND USED MATERIAL FROM YOUR WEBSITE...
“I have been getting the emails on your outreach to people being proselytized by Mormons, Jehovah Witnesses, and other groups. A man in our church went to Thailand to teach a class on countering JW influence at a Christian school there. I told him of your website and he used material from it. Upon his return he sent me a letter telling of his trip and personally thanked me for giving him the website.” (from our www.witforjesus.org website)
I'M USING YOUR SPANISH RESOURCES IN MEXICO…
“Your package arrived yesterday, and today I was able to read through all the articles. I am VERY pleased with the information you sent. Just what I need as handouts. I had always meant to order the witnessing cards for JWs and Mormons, but just didn't get around to it without an urgent deadline. So, I am very glad to have those tools also… I have been invited to speak to a Spanish congregation associated with my church. They asked me to speak about JWs to their mid-week Bible study. So I am very happy to have some handouts in Spanish to give them on Wednesday… Also, I have been invited to go to Cancun, Mexico, in April to speak on cults and will use your Spanish resources there as well.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
IT’S BEEN AN UPHILL BATTLE LEAVING THE WITNESSES…
“Hello …I am one of the ex-JW’s. I got out when I was 18. I am now 25 and love my life. It’s been an uphill battle leaving the Witnesses my whole entire family are Witnesses and there all very saddened by my decision. My mom isn’t as close to me as I wish she would be because of it. I guess what I’m trying to say and ask is that I sometimes feel so alone in this battle and finding your website really helps because I don’t have any bad to say about the organization. I just wish I could find someone to talk to and feels like me in this aspect. I am very happily married and we go to non-denominational church… but I find myself missing the Organization, but I always realize that THEY’RE FREAKING CRAZY! And come back to my reality. Is there a chat room or a discussion forum?” (NOTE: We referred her to our Ex-JW Support Group Meetup Website)
I WAS STILL UNCLEAR ABOUT THE USE OF BLOOD UNTIL I READ YOUR WEBSITE...
“Thank you so much for your website. I was trapped in JW doctrine for 14 years, and finally came to understand the Trinity in 2004 when a Christian friend patiently went through all of the proving verses with me (based on her own research). I was still unclear about the use of blood and was enlightened by your dialogue on that. Thank you and may God continue to bless your work.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
I WAS BORN AND RAISED MORMON IN SALT LAKE CITY... YOUR DVD'S AND CD'S HAVE HELPED ME!
“God Bless your amazing work! Your DVD's and CD's on Mormonism have helped me so much! I was born and raised a Mormon is Salt Lake City. But I learned about the ‘real Jesus’ from my teenage daughter in 1996. I now help others learn how to defend their Christian faith through your amazing resources.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
I WAS MOVED TO TEARS BY YOUR WEBSITE MINISTRY... ABSOLUTELY POWERFUL STUFF!
“Greetings, and God’s Peace to you! I’m a Lutheran pastor… and I’m currently studying to do some teaching on Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and Islam. I came across your website and was truly moved by your ministry. I was especially touched (moved to tears to be honest) by the video of the converted ex-witnesses set to, “I’m Not Who I Was.” Absolutely powerful stuff! I just wanted to write you and encourage you to stay strong in your work and let you know that I am earnestly praying for you to be powerfully energized and comforted and filled by God in your (His actually!) endeavors. May God continue to richly bless and keep you!” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
EVEN WITH ALL OF THE BOOKS I'VE READ, I STILL GLEANED NEW INFO FROM YOURS!
“I received the Jehovah’s Witness Questions Seminar DVD and it was awesome! You (thanks to the Holy Spirit) did a wonderful job. I loved it. The production, music etc - REALLY top notch! The content was also informative and interesting. If you recall I have a ministry to Witnesses and Mormons also. They come to my door every week! And I am still in touch via email to my 2 JW friends in NY. And even with all the books I’ve read and videos etc, I still gleaned new info from yours.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
I VISIT YOUR WEBSITE POSSIBLY THE MOST...
“Thank you for your website. It is possibly the site I visit most as I try to allow the Spirit to guide me in countering the Watchtower’s teaching to my wife.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
YOUR BOOK IS MAKING ITS ROUNDS AROUND THIS PRISON YARD!
“As you know… I am in prison... I know that every soul you help touch is a seed that might grow to touch hundreds and thousands… For example, the book you sent me some time back has been making its rounds around this prison yard. And many Jehovah’s Witnesses have been raising lots of questions and are re-thinking their faith. Please pray for us as we try to witness to the JW men without making them feel threatened (since prison inmates are always confusing “advice” with “treats”). Again, thank you for your ministry... Keep up the great work!” (We sent him the "What Does God Require?" book on our www.4jehovah.org website)
INSTEAD OF ME ASKING FOR HELP ONE QUESTION AT A TIME, THEY WERE ALL THERE FOR ME!
“My pastor Jim put me onto your site. I had JW’s visiting for six years. I did not feel happy about some of the things said. I must add, if not for them, I would not be reading my Bible again, they really stuck with me and my million questions. The sad thing is now I have their beliefs in my head. So I put myself into God’s hands and asked for direction. I was pointed to Pastor Jim, who then sent me to you. Well, the feeling of freedom is amazing. I am like a child, learning again for the first time. The reason I had to write to you was the Karen and Cindy conversations. Instead of me asking for help, one question at a time, they are all there for me!! It seems as if “karen” could read my mind. It’s so lovely for things to fall into place, mainly that “What happens when we die?” [question]. This was a very big issue for me. I was scared while I did not understand even the tiny bit I do now. It’s such a joy, instead of feeling unworthy(were all sinners I know) and feeling I would never be saved or go to Heaven. So, please Thank God and Jesus with me for such help.” (An ExJW in England reading our What Does God Require - Karen and Cindy Dialogues on our www.4jehovah.org website)
AS AN EX-MORMON... I SAID THE SALVATION PRAYER...
“As an Ex-Mormon, I'm now embracing Christianity but I refuse to join another church and trying to have my own personal relationship with Christ first of all but, I struggle on my own and am ever so confused about parts of "Salvation: What is required to have eternal life". I said the salvation prayer and thank you ever so much for that example but I'm wondering what next as I go about my daily life. Do I need to say this prayer every day in order to repent of my daily sins or is saying it once sufficient?...” (from our www.4witness.org and www.4mormon.org websites)
THIS IS LEGITIMATE JOURNALISM AND IT HAS BEEN INCREDIBLY USEFUL TO ME.
“I recently became acquainted with a girl who was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, and I am a solid evangelical Christian. Despite our differences, we have become good friends, and naturally there is a whole lot of discussion about faith. I didn't understand why she was so unwilling to think freely about Biblical issues and refused to consider my beliefs. Furthermore, I have had the hardest time talking to her about my concerns regarding the Watchtower because I understood so little about it. In my search for resources online, it is so refreshing to find a website that is not slanderous or based on opinion, but that simply provides the facts. Thanks for providing documentation to back up what you're saying. This is legitimate journalism and it has been incredibly useful to me. Your ministry is much appreciated!” (from our www.4witness.org website)
AFTER READING STORIES OF FORMER WITNESSES, I DO NOT FEEL SO ALONE...
“Thank you for creating this website. After reading stories of former Jehovah's Witnesses, I do not feel so alone. My resolve to stay out of that religion has also strengthened. I have also come to realize that my depression, anxiety, and many other emotional scars inflicted by the organization and those in the ‘truth’ will take time to heal. But your website has also come to help me realize that others have suffered these same symptoms, not through faults of their own, but the circumstances they were in. Thank you.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
YOUR WEBSITE ON MORMONISM IS FANTASTIC!
“This is fantastic! Your information is incredibly helpful as I almost got caught up in this Mormonism religion.” (from our www.4mormon.org website)
YOUR WEBSITE GOT ANOTHER PERSON FREE OF THE JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES!
“I’ve got an interesting story. My brother and his wife got 2 of their friends neighbors (a husband and wife) to start attending church after being inactive [from the Jehovah’s Witnesses] for awhile. They’re totally pumped. It just so happened that their mother (the wife’s mother) was studying, on the verge of becoming a JW. My brother mentioned it to me so I referred him to send them to your website. They printed some stuff for her (like the “I’m studying to become a JW” article) and she approached the JW’s she was studying with to ask the questions off your site. The JW’s immediately got all defensive and went into their weirdness mode and took her outside and burned the stuff she had printed. I guess the burning episode plus the fact that they made no effort to answer the questions made her realize what she was dealing with. Later after they left, she called and told them to leave her alone and not to come back. Praise God and thank you Jesus! Thought that might be encouraging to hear.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
YOUR SITE HELPS ME WITH MY QUESTIONS ON MORMONISM
“Hi… I’m Christian, but some time ago I was Mormon. I give THANKS to God because now I have a true relationship with God. My life is different, but my husband doesn’t want know about the Christian churches because he was born in the Mormon Church… I pray that he would open his senses to the real truth, the real relationship with God. …I like your website, because I can learn more about Mormonism and how to reach my husband …and in this site I can look for answers to questions that nobody has answered for me.” (from our www.4mormon.org website)
YOUR WEBSITE WILL HELP ME WITNESS TO JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES AT MY DOOR!
“Today I had some Jehovah’s Witnesses come to my door. I pointed out some Scripture to them, and I felt like I handled it fairly well. Although I felt like I made some good points, I decided to learn more about their doctrine and their misconceptions of mainstream Christianity. Your website gave me a lot of help. I will use what I have learned next time one (or probably two) comes to my door. I’m anxious to share the truth with them. Thank you.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
I LOVE YOUR WEBSITE AND VIDEOS!
“Just want you to know that I love your website. What a wealth of information …I have been looking for a website to aid in my witnessing to my Mormon and Jehovah’s Witness friends. This is the best one I have seen by far. Please keep up the good work!!!!” (from our www.4witness.org website)
I ENJOY THE THOUGHTFUL, LOVING TONE OF YOUR WEBSITE
“I need to say thank you so much to the people involved in this website! I am a Christian and have been in contact with a Jehovah's Witness for several months, and at the beginning I was very unfamiliar with JW teachings. Your website has helped me tremendously. I feel much better acquainted with JW teachings and able to question her on her beliefs, and point her to the Truth of Jesus in the Bible. I enjoy the thoughtful, loving tone your website has in pointing out the error of the Watchtower organization, and the error of Jehovah's Witness beliefs.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, I FEEL LIKE I'M GETTING THROUGH TO THEM...
“To Christy or any other wonderful person involved in this ministry, I am just writing you to let you know how much your website, online materials and resources have helped me in witnessing to Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons. I felt so unprepared in the past when they came to my door. Now I invite them in and have very lengthy discussions with them and I am able to witness with confidence thanks to the Holy Spirit and your website. In the past 2 months I have met with two different sets of Mormon missionaries and listened to their lessons. For the first time ever, I felt like I was able to get through to them and make some progress with nothing more than questions to make them think about what they were saying. I cannot get them to come back anymore, but I feel I actually had enough time to share the true nature of the gospel with them. I have now contacted our local Kingdom Hall and I am going to start a bible study with some Jehovah’s Witnesses. I cannot wait!!!! Thank you very much for the time and effort that was put into your website. The work Christy has done is awesome and I love her seminars on Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons. Keep up the good work and God Bless.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
I AM TELLING EVERYONE TO GO TO YOUR WEBSITE!
“Hello …I was a Jehovah Witness for 35 years. I was so shocked when I found out it was all a lie. I have been able to rescue my Mother, Wife and Daughter from this cult. My two sisters are still Jehovah Witness and I am trying to reason with them but it has been very hard. I just got through reading your Trinity and What Does God Require books. Let me just say WOW it is so great. I am showing everyone I can. I have a great story and my family was destroyed because of this group. My mother tried to kill herself when she found out. The guilt we all have is great. I just wanted to thank you so much and I am telling everyone to go to your website.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
BECAUSE OF YOUR WEBSITE, I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WITNESS TO MY WIFE!
“Merry Christmas to all of you and thank you for the insights you have given me. Because of your excellent newsletters and website, I have been able to witness to my wife who has been with the Jehovah’s Witnesses now for almost 11 years. She actually wrapped presents this year and has purchased items for others for the season instead of giving months before or after because of her beliefs about celebrations. I am constantly praying for her and trying to reach her through Jesus Christ. We have never been able to talk about religion without a heated argument but now that I understand what she is going through, I can relate in a much healthier frame of mind than ever before. Again thank you for all that you have done to present the truth and keep it up! The truth needs to get out there to all.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
I FOUND YOUR WEBSITE VERY ENCOURAGING
“I stumbled upon your website and found it very encouraging. From time to time I look at websites to get some hope and also encouragement. While certainly not all of the testimonies are the same, there is a familiar flavor of despair that you all went through at some time or another. I too was raised a Witness. I found Tammy’s testimonial just amazing.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
THANK YOU FOR EXPOSING THE TRUTH
“I’ve just read Anne-Marie's testimony about how the Jehovah’s Witness system viewed her having been raped as an excuse to expell her. I left Jehovah’s Witnesses in about 1987, the same time-period as her. I encountered at least two women who had a similar problem, viewed as the ‘cause’ of a rape they experienced. The Jehovah’s Witness organization is corrupt and not led by God. They’ve made a few discoveries about the Bible that can easily be made by simply reading the Bible. They do not have monopoly on truth and they do not have the most just social system in the world. Thank you for exposing the truth, and that lady is a very brave soul and is to be commended for enduring great adversity and coming out of it believing in God and as a loving being.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
YOUR QUESTIONS ON GOD'S NAME MAKE JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES THINK!
“I just had to remind you of the importance of your ministry. Your website is crucial in my witnessing efforts to Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses. I cannot get the Mormons to come back anymore, but I had my first study with the Jehovah’s Witnesses today. I was pretty nervous because I have only been a Christian for about 6 years now. One of the Witnesses that came to my house today has been in the Society for over 50 years!!!! I was very intimidated by this. I am using Wilbur Lingle’s publication that responds to the Watchtower book What Does the Bible Really Teach?. It is full of some great questions. But the thing that really got them squirming in their seats today were the questions I got off your website regarding the use of the Divine Name. It was almost as if they had never heard questions like this before. They did not have answers to a lot of my questions. I know I have said this before, but thank you so much for what you do. God has used your talents in such a wonderful way to bring glory and honor to our King Jesus Christ.” (from our www.4witness.org website)
YOUR TESTIMONIES FROM EX-JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES CHANGED MY VIEW OF WITNESSING
“Hello, I have been researching the Jehovah's Witness doctrine as I am a active Witness for Jesus and I came across your 4Jehovah website. I have read a lot of the testimonies and am overcome with such compassion. I am diligent to search the Scriptures and always have an answer to my beliefs, but these testimonies have changed my view on witnessing. I am inspired to love and to not turn Jehovah’s Witnesses away. In the past I’ve been stand offish with Jehovah’s Witnesses, but now I am compelled to love them. Thank you for putting theses testimonies up on you website. I am eager to witness to the religious as I believe relationship with Jesus Christ is the biblical way. Be blessed in your ministry. My prayers are with you.” (from our www.4jehovah.org website)
IT IS SO GOOD TO SEE QUESTIONS ANSWERED HERE SO THAT I CAN BE PREPARED
“I am a Christian witnessing to Jehovah’s Witnesses in my home. They have been meeting with me for over two months. They are a husband and wife, and he is an elder at their Kingdom Hall. Some of our studies go better than others, but recently, we have been starting to focus on the Trinity. Thank you SO MUCH for the legwork you have done, as seen in your site. I have been studying much of this on my own, which gives me the joy of discovering truth for myself, but it is so good to see questions answered here so that i can be prepared for the Witnesses. Thank you! You are truly doing the work of God, and your ministry is awesome. Thank You.” (from www.4witness.org)
THE INFORMATION THAT YOU PROVIDE IS VERY INFORMATIVE AND ACCURATE
“I was recently looking up Biblical topics on the Internet. I came across your website. I am an Ex-Jehovah’s Witness. I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed your site. The information that you provide is very informative and accurate. Sometimes people do not represent the Jehovah’s Witness side accurately. Whenever I see that, I always look at what they have to say as being suspect. It is obvious that God is working through your ministry. Keep presenting the TRUTH with boldness. God bless you all.” (from www.4jehovah.org)
THANK YOU – GOD HELPED ME USE YOUR RESOURCES:
“I just wanted to say thanks for the tremendous amount of effort it must have taken to put together this website. I am a Christian who has been visited by Jehovah's Witnesses for about 7-8 years. Through our conversations, I have had to dig deeper into why I believe the Trinity, after doubts caused by some things they had said. I knew in my heart that Jesus is God, but I just couldn't seem to prove it. God has revealed the truth to me through His word, and I am so thrilled to see it backed by your research!
I was online looking for the original Greek or Hebrew words for some scriptures (as I had already found out that the New World Translation was inaccurate) when I came across your site. Having found what I was looking for, I continued on with browsing your site. There is sooooo much useful information here!
Recently, one of the young Witnesses that had previously come to my door (whom I supposed was no longer "allowed" to come after I had asked her questions on the assurance of salvation) came to my door alone. (I know!) What a blessing it was for me to be able to hear her questioning her church, and how terrified she was of becoming "disfellowshiped" for some things she had done that she admitted to me. I felt a little inadequate at being able to witness to her, as I don't know the ins and outs of what she believes, or is being told what to believe.
After reading many pages on your site, I feel so much better equipped to speak with her. I have printed out Anne Marie's letter for her, as well as many other wonderful pages to help me speak to her. I know she will be afraid to come alone again...please pray for another opportunity to see her alone and share the Good News with her. She is desparately confused and unhappy... I hope to show her the joy that is in the freedom we have in Christ.
Thank you again for such wonderfully researched information that can help me to be 'prepared in season and out of season...' (2 Timothy 4:2) to 'give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.' (1 Peter 3:15)” (from www.4witness.org)
I JUST WANTED TO SAY THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR MINISTRY!
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for your ministry! I am a born again Christian who attends a Calvary Chapel in my area, and have been visited by Jehovah's Witnesses recently. Although I am not interested in joining them, your website provides so much needed information to be able to effectively witness to them in truth and love. I sincerely appreciate all the effort that has gone into creating this site and pray that God continues to use you to open they eyes of those that have been so blinded by the enemy. Thank you once again!” (from 4witness.org)
WEBSITES LIKE YOURS REALLY HELPED ME WHEN I WAS LEAVING JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES
“First I would like to congratulate you for this website. I am a former JW, and websites like this were of tremendous help when I was in the process of leaving the organization. I've been a born again Christian for 9 years now, experiencing the joy and peace that only freedom in Christ can bring.” (from 4Jehovah.org)
TWO YOUNG MORMON MEN CAME TO MY DOOR... I FOUND YOUR SITE HELPFUL
“Thank you and praise to God for your efforts. Today two young Mormon men came to my door. I was not ready to receive visitors today... I have on this occasion invited the young man back at a more suitable time and found your site valuable especially the 'bite size' business cards to hand out. …My heart is saddened for they do not know salvation through grace has already been afforded them. Pray that my interaction with them on their next visit glorifies God. That their hearts even now are being prepared. Again thank you and I will be adding this site to my favorites.” (from 4mormon.org)
AS AN EX-JEHOVAH'S WITNESS, I AM REFRESHED BY THIS WEBSITE
“I am an ex Jehovah witness. I am in prayer for direction. I am refreshed by this website. It strengthens my conviction that this religion is not the truth. I still struggle with my born again beliefs. I got clarification on some basic Christian beliefs. Truth should set you free— not entrap you.” (from 4Jehovah.org)
THE TOUGHEST JW IS LEFT WITH UNANSWERED THOUGHTS WHEN I'M FINISHED WITH THEM...
Just a note to let you know you’re still on my mind and I pray for you always. I just this week had a person ask me if I kenw anything about the JW’s and all I had to do was whip out my trusty info pack you sent me and all questions were addressed and of course a positive outcome was had by all. No one that I’ve happened across has yet to come close to doing what you do, even the toughest JW is left with unanswered thoughts when I’m finished with them through God’s grace and the wonderful help He’s sent me in you. My love, my heart, my prayers are with you all! (from 4witness.org)
I CAME UPON THIS WEBSITE… I LEARNED SO MUCH …I FELT MY BONDS RELEASE.
“2 years ago as I was struggling in bondage, I came upon this website. I learned so much about JW's and their false beliefs that I felt my bonds release. It still has taken me awhile to become fully released. I found a great bible based church and a loving congregation to help me through. Now through God's grace and through the info on your site, I watched the bindings fall off my husband and my best friend~both disfellowshipped Witnesses. God is using you for a great work here and I can't tell you how thankful I am that He led me to you 2 years ago. Praise God for all of you and for His great love for all of us!” (from 4Jehovah.org)
YOUR WEBSITE IS AWESOME!
“You website is AWESOME! I found it earlier this year when I was searching the Internet to learn more about what JW's believe. I am a committed Christian and have been sharing my faith with a couple of JW visitors. We were meeting on a near-weekly basis for about six or seven months. Although we are not meeting anymore, I know I have shared Biblical truth with them, and the rest is in God's hands. I continue to pray for them. Your website was incredible in addressing the exact topics and points that always seemed to come up. Also, reading testimonials of past JW's was truly inspiring and reminded me over and over of the time it sometimes takes and the power of prayer.” (from 4witness.org)
I HAVE BEEN ABLE TO MAKE THIS JW SERIOUSLY THINK WHAT THE ORGANIZATION IS DOING...
“I must say that you (whoever) made this website, did an excellent job. This has been so helpful in my battle with the JWs. I'm currently dealing with a Ministerial Servant. He and his wife have been coming over about a handful of times in the past two months. I think he brought over an 'elder' the other day when I wasn't home. My wife described an older looking man who took the lead in the door front conversation. I believe I have been able to make this JW seriously think what that organization is doing. Thank you for your help.” (from 4Jehovah.org)
