Jehovah’s Witnesses release new homophobic video

The Jehovah’s Witnesses have just released a series of videos that will play at the religions upcoming series of 2017 worldwide conventions. One of the videos is a three part drama entitled “Remember the Wife of Lot.”

In the video above Lloyd Evans, the founder and senior editor of JWsurvey.org – a Web site that promotes freeness of thought among Jehovah’s Witnesses, focuses on this video being shown to Jehovah’s Witnesses at their 2017 regional convention encouraging them to act in a judgmental, intolerant manner when encountering gays or lesbians, or people from gay or lesbian families.

The video is presented through Evans’ John Cedars channel. Watch it above.

  1. Jehovah’s Witnesses (JWs) predicted the end of the world, IN WRITING, numerous times. Not once did they come true. They truly are known for their ‘False Predictions’ the world over.

    JWs are taught that they alone are TRUE Christians and that all other people not JW will soon be destroyed. This is no exaggeration.

    JWs will allow their own children TO DIE rather than accept a life saving blood transfusion even in severe medical emergencies. It has already happened THOUSANDS of times!

    Just like this mother died unnecessarily! http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/shropshire/7078455.stm

    Now her husband has NO wife and twins have NO mother. And all for what?

    Or this teenager that also DIED: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/west_midlands/8690785.stm

    This pregnant JW and her baby died.

    JW’s NEEDLESSLY die for this sorry blood policy today.

    From the same organization that has an entire 100 + year history of similar bad and embarrasing policies.

    As a 15 year active JW (and an elder) here is my own story: http://exjehovahswitnessforum.yuku.com/topic/922#.USEl4aWhDHh

    JWs used to forbid Vaccinations and Organ Transplants (calling a life saving transplant “Cannibalism”) for a combined 33 years.

    This JW elder refused a kidney transplant and DIED only to have JWs say transplants are now OK 2 years later. http://ajwrb.org/experiences/debbie-shards-story)

    JWs enforce extreme shunning for any JW that decides to leave their religion or who commits a sin without showing enough repentance in front of the elders.

    I have literally seen parents cut off all ties with their children solely because the kid did not want to remain a JW but went in another direction.

    Even the ex-JWs who leave the religion on their own, who are 100 percent truthful, sincere, love God, pay taxes, help others and more are still SHUNNED by all current JWs and marked as godless, proud, sinning apostates. The Awake magazine recently called them “mentally diseased”.

    And MANY contemplate suicide because the penalties of losing everything are simply TOO MUCH TO TAKE.

    But an honest question is: Why do so many JWs leave after being one time followers?

    As I eventually found out, the JW religion did say, IN WRITING, that the end would come in 1914 and then again in 1925. Was Jehovah directing all that? 1914 and 1925 came and went! They were proven false predictions. Period.

    They also said the end very likely would happen in 1975 and even commended (in the watchtower) witnesses for selling their houses and pioneering because of it.

    But 1975 came and went!

    They also said (for many decades) that the end would come before the generation born in 1914 passed away. In fact up until 1995 it was written inside each Awake magazine cover. Only they then had to change that meaning as well (including the Awake masthead) because that generation CAME AND WENT TOO.

    I was an active JW (and elder) for 15 years before leaving because of the blood and fractions policy 10 yrs ago. Today I’m shunned by all JWs simply because I left the religion.

    Most JWs simply accept everything the Watchtower teaches and says as “food from God”. Just like I did.

    Most believe God has chosen the Watchtower Society as his “channel”, which provides food from God Himself to their religion and ONLY their religion.

    But an honest look at the facts of the JW religion shows God has not chosen the WT for anything!

    Take a LOOK: http://www.freeminds.org/history/part2.htm

    ALL FROM THEIR OWN LITERATURE WITH DATES & PAGES TO SEE FOR YOURSELVES!!!

    Pages and pages of mistakes, embarrassments, false predictions, medical disasters, weird science, doctrinal failures and more for over 100 years now!

    Obviously ‘GOD’ would not get things wrong like this. Obviously ‘GOD’ did not provide bad food like that for their entire history.

    But most JWs have no idea about these things. They’re told to stay away from anything critical of their religion.

    For example: Was God’s spirit with JWs when they said Organ Transplants were a “conscience matter” in 1961?

    OR,

    Was God”s spirit with WT when they THEN SAID Organ Transplants are same as “Cannibalism” in 1967 and forbid them?

    OR, was God’s spirit with the WT when they THEN SAID Organ Transplants are NOT the same as cannibalism in 1980 and now allow them?

    Was God behind all those changes each time? Did ((GOD)) get all those things wrong each time? How many JWs like that elder above DIED by refusing kidney transplants, only later on to be told they’re OK to have now?

    Which is why some end up taking their lives due to losing their family or feel compelled to speak out about it, like me right here and now.

    And now because I walked away JWs are demanded to shun you for life (including your very own family).

    Examine this religion and ask as many questions as you can!

  2. I want to share some information with you regarding homosexuality and the fact that it is not a sin. This is something that can be proven both within and outside of the publications from Watchtower Bible and Tract society. For now, I’m only going to focus on the material from within the organization and I’m going to start with 1 Cor 6:9. Get yourself a copy of the silver edition of the New World Translation (the silver sword), the previous edition of the New World Translation (the black cover), the Kingdom Interlinear of the Christian Greek Scriptures and the Insight of the Scriptures volume 1. All of these publications can also be found at ‪jw.org‬.
    I want you to see how the governing body has deviated from what Jehovah actually said about who would not inherit the kingdom. What Jehovah said and what the governing body said is literally like night and day. What the governing body has done is nothing short of blasphemy. They have literally written their own prejudice right into scripture to the tuned frequency of its obeying audience with very few brothers and sisters even caring enough to question the governing body’s stunt.
    Starting with the Kingdom interlinear at 1:Cor 6:9 there are two Greek words there: “malakos” and “arsenokoitai”, which you can see mean “soft” and “liers with males”. Neither term limits their subject to any particular gender. But from this point onward, the governing body begins its tainted trajectory. Their first stunt deals with the Greek word “malakos”. As you can see with the kingdom interlinear, they added the word “men” to soft, hence the brackets. And without any footnote, they go straight to their blasphemy of a rendition of “nor men kept for unnatural purposes” as their so called translation in the black reference Bible. Not one word of that “translation” has any relationship to the Greek word “malakos” which the Kingdom Interlinear without their addition says means “soft”. And with no support linking “malakos” to Romans 1 they list that scripture as a cross-reference to support their blatant deviation. Their second stunt can be found in the footnote of the black reference Bible. The first lie the footnote lists is “nor Sodomites” as an understanding/parallel for the Greek word arsenokoitai. It is abundantly clear that when Paul penned the word “arsenokoitai”, he did not make any reference/comparison/ parallel, etc. whatsoever to ANY city, let alone one named Sodom or any derivative of that name. As proof of this here is the Greek word for Sodom: “Sódoma”; and here is the Greek word Paul actually used: “arsenokoitai”. The two words are not even close to being related. So now with Sodom and its homosexual lie added to the mix via the “Sodomite” reference, the ground is fertile enough for the translators to introduce their next stunt: the addition of the word “men” to “liers with males”. So now instead of working with what Paul said according to the kingdom interlinear it now goes from “liers with males” to “MEN who lie with men”. The silver sword takes this lie further with arsenokoitai by adding “MEN” a second time for a total of three. They took the black reference Bible’ s lie of “MEN who lie with men” and contracted it down to the phrase “homosexuality” and just added their second “MEN” to it making the silver sword read “MEN who practice HOMOSEXUALITY”. And if you look at the footnote of the silver sword Bible they have the literal as being “men who lie with men”. That is a bald faced lie when you look at what they say the literal is in the footnote of the black reference Bible and the literal that’s found in the Kindgdom Interlinear itself. The silver sword’s malakos rendering is an even bigger lie. The governing body already added men to “soft” as the kingdom Interlinear shows in the brackets with the black reference Bible’s translation completely deviating from Greek. The silver sword adds MEN two more times with its rendition of “MEN who submit to HOMOSEXUAL ACTS”, when the Greek provides no support for that whatsoever. So you can now see the back bending gymnastics the bigoted, homophobic governing body has done to try to change God’s word to make it as a weapon against gays, specifically men. Now compare their blasphemy to the simple truth of who Jehovah via Paul was actually excluding from god’s kingdom. Sometimes even a liar will inadvertently spill the truth. In your Insight on the Scriptures vol 1, turn to page 434 and look under the heading of CHILD, CHILDREN
    If you look at the first paragraph, the third from the last sentence says the following: “Among the Greek terms are teʹknon (child), te·kniʹon (little child), pai·diʹon (young child), and arʹsen (male child). (Mt ‪10:21‬; Joh ‪13:33‬; Mt 2:8; Re ‪12:13‬)”
    The Greek word Paul used at 1 Cor 6:9 was ARSENokoitai. I have ARSEN in all caps for a reason. The Insight book clearly has ARSEN meaning MALE CHILD and they use Rev ‪12:13‬ which uses the same ARSEN that’s also in ARSENokoitai at 1 Cor 6:9 to support it. The context in Rev ‪12:13‬ identifies a reference to a child. With all of this in mind, go back at 1 Cor 6:9 and this time, let scripture speak for itself. When Paul used the phrase “liers with males”, he didn’t identify the gender of who was doing the laying. The original Greek left it open, but the governing body’s blasphemous rendering did not. They did just the opposite of what Jehovah did and unsuccessfully jumped through every kind of hoop to try to get away with adding MEN to it as a weapon against gays. But Jehovah said no such thing, he clearly was condemning ANYONE, MALE OR FEMALE who lay with a MALE CHILD. And when you look at the context and the setting of Paul’s time, the abuse of boys existed during that time, and yet Jehovah was delicately able to condemn the abuse regardless of the gender involved and more importantly without importing a homosexuality concept of any kind or making a reference of any kind to a city named Sodom.
    The tragedy in all of this is the unimaginable damage and pain being done to gay witnesses all over the globe. Most witnesses will not even be motivated to fact check the governing body’s translation but will instead assist in the slow, internal suicide of our gay brothers and sisters by wishing them options that they as straight individuals would never wish upon themselves. But fortunately their cry for help is growing and friends are starting to listen to them. What the governing body has done is sad and it’s sickening, because as you can clearly see Jehovah NEVER said that they would be barred from his kingdom. The governing body is the LYING homophobe, not Jehovah. And believe it or not, more witnesses are starting to see that

    • It is VERY SAD FOR YOU that the permissiveness of this disgusting world has eroded your basic common sense thinking; that GOD would have half stepped by giving people, through out history, with the genitals, eggs, sperm etc- but yet not the ability to complete the very obvious ultimate purpose. Great things in the past and abilities even today have& can be done even by folks of the “gay” persuasion. But its still wrong & unnatural from GOD’S standard. To be sure The Bible does show before their destruction in Genesis that, Sodom& Gomorrah were full of competent folks in business. Even The Lord Jesus pointed this out when speaking of the deplorable conditions the world would be in- right before His FATHER’S destruction upon it. But JAH still rained destruction down on them for all their very wicked sins. The most out standing alluded to was homosexuality. Why? As the early chapters of Romans points out; ‘ it is unnatural and sinful to develop a desire and sexual use for the same sex by giving up the opposite sex as GOD clearing intended and completely equipped with the ability to fullfil ultimate purpose of sex you cant avoid- its always on ones mind. Because precautions must be taken to avoid it- Pregnancy. True JWs have not been perfect in thier strive to understand The Bible true predictions on the definite coming Destruction by JAH, they’ve never claimed inspiration and learned from thier misunderstandings- admitting their error and leaving prophecy to GOD as it ultimately belongs to HIM. But so have the churches wrongly through out history done the same and sometimes still do. The Witnesses get slammed because they stand out different and ultimately more in line with Scripture than the churches who have and still do allow the wicked world and its influence to destroy and erode GODS righteous standards. But she you step back using The Bible properly as The foundation and cut through the dogma & look at the overall picture JEHOVAH’S Witnesses are really telling The Truth and not these churches. In the past GOD had only one truth and people, imperfect and sometimes wrong in their understanding- which GOD corrected. GOD telling them they were HIS only True servants or Witnesses of HIM and everyone around them were not and avoid their permissive wrong ways- but they were and still are invited to learn JEHOVAH’S Truth for their benefit. But they must abandone and not allow the world to twist GODS word meanings as you have unwittingly done, because he sent The Lord Christ Jesus to save you and us all out of HIS Love for us and salvation to us. But on HIS Holy and Righteous standards not the worlds….I Love you friend…. John 3:16; Isaiah 43:10-12.

      • My question to you is… If you find homosexuality so repugnant why are you on this site in the first place? Curiosity perhaps? Or maybe it’s something else that drew you here. I make no assumptions or judgements I was just wondering how you came to leave a comment.
