The End Is Nigh For Jehovah

Last month, the decline of the Jehovah’s Witness cult was reported here. Things appear to have got worse since then. The leading anti-Witness activist Lloyd Evans has picked up another two thousand YouTube subscribers, while a former Witness has recently reported that in her unnamed city, seven of the nine Kingdom Halls are now permanently closed while the eighth is about to follow. This appears to be a nationwide phenomenon if not a worldwide one.

The Navarre Congregation in Wayzata, Minnesota is said to have been sold for $475,000; the building is now a Baptist church, while several congregations around Minneapolis are said to be “restructuring”.

Kingdom Halls were a bedrock of the cult, but now all or almost all meetings are being held on-line, and so is their proselytising. This can only be detrimental because it’s one thing to badger an unsuspecting householder on the doorstep, another entirely where a few clicks of the mouse can expose lies or in many cases complete nonsense.

The cult has been having an increasingly difficult time in Russia; it was labelled an extremist organisation in 2017, and this year some of its activists have received sentences of up to 9 years. This is strange, for while it is true Witnesses refuse to salute a national flag, they are totally opposed to war, which removes the terrorist label. They are also opposed unconditionally to homosexuality which they consider a sin; one would have expected that to endear them to not only the Russian authorities but to the governments of all former Eastern Bloc nations.

There are an estimated 175,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia. It would surely be more productive for the authorities to order them to attend an intensive course on the origins of their religion, pointing out its many absurdities, contradictions and outright lies. The Governing Body would be far more fearful of that because they would have no recourse to portraying themselves as a persecuted minority, which is what they are, granted that even fools can be persecuted. Lloyd Evans lives in Croatia, so perhaps he could volunteer his services to Vladimir Putin, him and a steadily increasing number of former followers of The Truth.

They may say they’re opposed to “homosexuality”, but they have a major child abuse problem. It’s no good to be against “homosexuality” but for sodomy.

Dark Man you are talking nonsense; meetings went online due to COVID pandemic and no other reason. The ‘cult’ as you call it is not declining. Remember what is in the Bible. Jesus said the whole world lies in the power of the wicked one. He also said the road is narrow and few will take it. JWs are non political and are pacifist; how many Baptists et al have suffered real persecution? ..little I fancy and none ended up in Nazi concentration camps. If JWs are opposed to homosexuality then it is because it is in the Bible, just… Read more »

I am still here and never and I never said the world would end in 1975; some JWs believed this but it wasnt organisation policy; Jesus said only God knows the day when he will ask Jesus to return.

Well Lex, as I have a half brother who is a JW, turned his back on our whole family when he became involved with them. BUT, he did fulfill his national service when called up and DID serve in the Vietnam conflict. So to claim JW’s are pacifists is cow manure. They will do whatever serves them best at the time. Just like the rest of us do. Going thru primary school, I had a best friend who was JW, one day during 1961 I believe, he came to school and told us all the World was going to end… Read more »

I think religion is pretty much man-made and man has created God in his image. So I don’t have a big problem with someone like Richard Dawkins, for example. Conversely, I have not encountered a big problem with the Jehova’s Witnesses either. We know some nice ones. They are certainly not as rotten as the Swamp People in D.C.

Amen, I concur whole heartedly on that point.
