Another court case revealed that the organisation has a database of pedophiles but blatantly refuses to produce it despite court orders to do so. This issue is still contentious as of October 2017
After being taught all my life that religious organisations that affiliate themselves with political entities make themselves enemies of God (JAMES 4:4) you can imagine my horror at finding out that the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society were secretly affiliated with the UN for 9 years!
The failure to report pedophiles to the appropriate authorities is a massive problem within the organisation as even a small amount of research glaringly shows. The Australian Royal Commission Case 29 reveals more on this issue and includes a statement from Geoffrey Jackson of the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses on the final day of the inquiry.
The bible was written for us all and what it contains is truly GOOD NEWS!
There are so many other disturbing revelations regarding the organisation of Jehovah's Witnesses that I have discovered since June 2015 but I think it is best not to overload you if you are just beginning this excruciatingly difficult path.
"Wherever two or more are gathered in my name, there I am in their midst." (MATTHEW 18:20.)
Jesus was assuring us that we only need one other person to meet with, for him to be in our midst. So I encourage you to talk with at least one other person and read and share thoughts from the bible together.
Jesus also said ......
I was brought up from childhood to love God and his Word the Bible. The religion I was raised in (Jehovah's Witnesses) has helped me gain extensive knowledge of the bible and for this I am truly grateful.
However in June 2015 I stumbled over information about the organisation of Jehovah's Witnesses that was incredibly disturbing. Rather than hiding from these things, I researched these matters thoroughly to establish whether they were true or false and was shocked and distressed in the extreme to find out they were, in fact, true! I cried so many tears of pain. How could I have been so unaware of things that were happening on the world stage regarding my own religion?
The initial information I stumbled across related to a court case in 2012 of which I'd heard nothing about previously. The case involved an abuse victim named Candace Conti.
I know how it feels to have your long-held beliefs rocked to the core. It is traumatic and confronting in the extreme! Most choose to 'bury their heads in the sand' but lovers of truth have the courage to face the truth. They examine the inspired words of God in the bible, and if there is disparity between what they have been taught and what the bible says, they choose the bible. Jesus said, "Sanctify them by means of the truth. Your word is truth." JOHN 17:17
The following video presents the issue thoroughly and truthfully. I have no particular connection with Lloyd Evans who produced the video but I have found his research on this subject to be informative and accurate, bringing together all of my own research into one complete presentation.
As Jehovah's Witnesses, we rightfully taught people that Jesus' death ended the law. ROMANS 10:4
Why then, is the 'two witness rule' still in force in the organisation? This is part of the law. Yes .... Jesus spoke of the two-witness rule, but he did so whilst still living under the Law. The Law only ended after he faithfully endured death and was resurrected. After his death, the Law was removed whilst the spirit of the law remained.
The spirit of the 'two witness rule' was to establish truth. In our day and age truth can be established through various means including forensics and other professional involvement. I know my God. He and his son would be appalled at the use of the two-witness rule that wreaks havoc on victims of such a heinous crime. The maintaining of this rigidity is in disregard for Jesus' sacrifice that ended the Law. The decision to continue to enforce the 'two-witness rule' cannot be excused as 'imperfection'. It is a conscious choice by those responsible.
Please see the short video below that I put together to express these thoughts.
