OK. This is where I go and explain the reason for the title of my blog. Losing The Faith – Truth under scrutiny is the title of my upcoming book. It is the story of my journey through the organisation known as The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. A sect that commands total control over its followers and claims that it alone is the channel of communication between God and men. Growing up in the religion I was not allowed to celebrate Christmas, Easter, birthdays etc. Those people that come knocking on your door on a Sunday morning peddling magazines together with a Bible message,well, I was one of them. Yes you guessed right. You know them as Jehovah’s Witnesses.
There were quite a few of the teachings that used to bother me. This caused me great mental anguish to the point that I eventually decided to do my own research into the organisation. What I uncovered dealt a devastating blow to my faith in the organisation. I could not see myself supporting and belonging to a cult that breaks up families and causes countless deaths of its followers because of its blood transfusion policy. The cover ups,doctrinal flip-flops and outright lies endorsed by the Watchtower are to numerous to mention. My gripe is with the leaders of the organisation who enforce teachings on its followers that have no sound scriptural backing.
Millions worldwide are being held captive to a concept. A concept that can be very dangerous to individuals and families.
