Romans 8:28 promises, “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” NASV.  All of us desire to be close to our God Jehovah and his son, Jesus Christ.  We long for their comfort, guidance and encouragement in our lives.  We are promised in Isaiah 26:3, “You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.” NKJV.  Yet when difficult and harsh experiences come, we sometimes feel alone and afraid.  In Hebrews 13:5 we read, “God Himself has said, “I will never, never let go your hand: I will never never forsake you.” Weymouth.  You are not alone.  Your heavenly Father and his Son are watching over you.  You are not alone.  There are others like you who have experienced hard trials and difficult experiences.  Take some time to share with us.  To tell your story.  To encourage others.  That is what this Testimony section is for.

    To the Pastoral Bible institute ~ I’d like to thank you so much for the 3 booklets you sent to me. I am pretty much house bound and I love my Lord, I read a lot and cannot ever learn enough. Thank you again. May God bless you. In Jesus’ Love,

    Brother Russel says that animals Kinds may have evolved within there species but regarding human evolution he said it’s entirely impossible a Christian must believe we are made in Gods image not some animal like beast in so called transition. Paster Russel was called by Brother Rutherford as the ‘greatest Paster alive in the world today’. He said this as his legal representative for 15 years up to the Paters death. He most certainly had adoration in Paster Russel. So those Christians who believe in Paster Russel cannot be evolutionists! John Cedars has made it clear he believes in evolution.

    Temple BBQ……..Anyone can repent………even hard core “company men” for JW’s. I have seen it. I remember a district assembe in San Diego where a high ranking speaker made it very clear that ALL are ransomed and that Jehovah God is not like the fast talking lawyers that give everything in the big print and take it all away in the little print. Of course, this guy disappeared after he said that and was never seen again. Jehovah God knows who belons to him. Love is the key. Because Jesus dies for us ALL we are oblligated to be patient with those who speak against their own best interests, just as our Lord Jesus was. He would not accept anything less of those whom he will choose to share is rulership with. see Heb 12:3

    WE ARE NOT ALONE! Anybody who has left the JW’s should view this video. it’s very encouraging.

      Henry, thanks for posting this. I noticed the one comment Cedars wrote was the deep distress one feels when you begin the journey “coming out”. If the watchtower is correct then it should be able to stand up to the scrutiny this video will bring.
      They might however have the ego thing and refute every little thing in the video instead of watching it to the end and filing it away. Cedars has come a long way since I first met him on this site. Glad to see these people free to think and believe what they can prove to their satisfaction. hopefully some will get encouragement from this excellently done video.

    If a movie was ever made about my testimonial, I’d probably want Kevin McFree to direct it, and I imagine it would probably look an awful lot like his latest production:


    JW’s – Leaving The Yellow Brick Road
    by kevin McFree and Published on Aug 8, 2018

    It’s about 16 minutes in length.

    I laughed a lot while watching this. I take that as a very good sign because I can recall a time when watching this would have made me cry myself to sleep for weeks–and not for any other reason than because it would have been the Painful Truth about “the truth” and because it hits so hard and so close to home. Happily, I’m done with most of my crying now. I can think clearly again, now that all the watchtower stuffing is gone from my head. I’ve got my heart back. I’ve got my courage back. And I’ve found my way “home”.

    Enjoy this video, if you are able. Compassionate hugs to you if it’s still too painful for you to be able to laugh at it.

      That was quite entertaining! I watched one other he did besides that. Its a different sort of humor, but I enjoy it. My wife has never seen the wizard of oz so to her it dont make much since.😞

    My X JW wife is unravelling yet again & recently followed advice from her congregation to throw out our 17 year old son from her house, for her custody weeks. I share equal custody, 1 week on & then 1 week off. What happened was this:

    He’s been noticing that his mom has been acting like she’s possessed. A couple of months ago i had received a mesg from my x, voicemail sounding like great FEAR!! Said how she will throw him out if he wears the jewish star necklace i bought him & 2 bracelets from a nautical shop. She said these are demonic & cannot allow this in her religious home.(Now mind you she went off to Another country to have sex with her bf breaking my marriage vows.When coming forward to the elders, the elders turned on me & helped her to cheat on me further…forcing me to get a judge to throw her out of my home which made the elders turn on me worse) Cheating is ok. But jewelry is forbidden by Watchtower. She told me she will rip it off his body when she can overpower him. This led him to being hospitalized, but nothing that was obviously leading back to her. She then went thru a change & started being real loving. This was about May. Then late July, he brought a stone to her house about the size of the head of a sharpened pencil. He placed it on top of her religous books because he’s been noticing strange things with his mother while she engages in jw activities, she becomes more vicious with her words. He called out to Jesus & she flipped out on him. A screaming like nothing from this earth.He kept saying Jesus & she freaked out more!!Made him pack his bags & drove him to my home. Said her religion no longer allows him to be in her home, that she is within her rights of the law. That this is not abuse.That i need to get my facts straight(Her elders said she’s not breaking the law.Her friends in the Kingdom Hall are all rallying & patting her on the back for throwing out our son) She texted me that stones are not allowed in her home. Its against WT policy & that his necklace is from Satan, & that his shows he watches which are not JW Broadcast channel are all from the devil.

    I said to her its amazing how our son invokes Christ name, & it led her to throw him out. So who is being controlled by demons???? I said how the JW’s in town here also flip out on me when i say JESUS also. She said she will just accuse him of going thru her personal belonging invading her privacy & some other false stories the elders have advised her so that she doesn’t ever see him again. I said that i hope the elders pat her on the back & use her in an upcoming part on the program so they can applaud her for disowning her flesh & blood who wants no part in the religion. She told me how i have not moved on with my life & am lost(words from her elders).

    I told her that she cannot be worshipping Source Creator. Because my God would never require me to disown my son.
    And that they are pulling her strings, & her thinking this is worship. But that its ok with me if she needs some other ppl to think for her. As for me, I’ve cut my stringsI have my son here free of her influence, & free of the elders taunting him telling him he will die by god.
    He came back to me shaken but not stirred. He feels free.

    Oh & btw….i’ve left in freedom in the beginning of 2014. Was the best decision of my life!
    It however led to stalkings, repeated phone calls, messages of death threats from jw’s, loss of job sites as members called other members to unfriend me on social media & to fire me if they had me doing work for them, it led to them following my children home when walking home from school, announcements to not associate, announcements to literally run when seeing my family…which is quite comical to look at, elders making exaggerated facial expressions when they see me(that’s quite disturbing) so many intimidating bullying techniques. I told one elder, i see no difference between what they do in religious bullying & other terrorist groups. They may not have literal swords but in actuality they are killing us within the group, setting us up & controlling the groups view of the family by their false announcements to not associate with them when they haven’t done anything wrong. That we are being bullied & are merely speaking up against that WT.Policy.

    I have seen so many of my old jw friends, & they look externally like the life is being sucked out of them. I see them at the mall with their literature carts & look so empty..no smiles. And many have become so obese in weight that i see them try to get back in their cars & have a hard time. Others look bizarre. Just my families observation. Anyways, my life is not empty anymore, though my ex says i haven’t moved on with my life. But I am truly happy & have Liberty in Christ no matter what she says about me. Now my son is Truly Free of their influence.

      Dundee hello, its been a long time since we have talked. Br. Peter was such a help to you in your most difficult time, leaving.
      This does indeed sound like the present day actions of He. Instead of being more logical they are getting wild and more fearful of demons than God. I see strangeness in the faces of some of the governing body when they give talks, something is not right there. They all wear the same expensive watches and rings thst they make sure are visible while they indoctrinate in their talks. I can’t put my finger on exactly what they are doing so I just stay away. I also can’t stay at relatives home overnite anymore so this must be their rule.
      At least he is a boy and not a girl kicked out so viciously. He has you now. You not those men is his father. You really got a blessing, thank God for it! You son is free!
      Say to yourself ” And this too shall pass”. That is how you jump these hurdles and survive and be a victor instead of a victim!
      We have something new now. Testimony meeting tonight Saturday, where you can talk and even see us if desired.
      Tune in tonight and let’s discuss your journey with other brothers.
      Leave the ex to the elders, just deal with the mental health and well being of your family.

              Br. Richard,

              I’m sad that I didn’t see your request sooner. 🙂

              Yes, please do pass along my love to the brethren.

              And also, please keep me posted with regards to setting up a special meeting for all to get together to meet each other. I really like that idea.

              Wishing you safe and happy travels,

      Dundee…..I can’t remember the scriptue where it says: “The wicked flie when there is no pursurer, but the righteous are like a young lion………” or something like that. The faith to take our freedom in Christ is sure a delight, it can make us giddy sometimes. It is just best to keep a low profile and “just keep on keepin on” Cain hated his brother because his brother was righteous. Don’t give the enemy a inch. Just Stay Sweet and Good and God sort this all out.
