Scriptures that made us Question the Jehovah's Witnesses.

There are a number of scriptures that have left readers with questions. It is not bad to question or challenge the bible. Typically the men volunteering as Elders in each congregation would be the ones to bring up these points and challenges with. Elders are responsible for teaching the congregation and are respected as leaders. If you are a Jehovah's Witness and are questioning the truth of Watchtower doctrine you may want to bring up some of the scriptures cited in your next Elder's meeting. When we questioned our respective elders there were rarely good answers to the following;


  1. Why is the Watchtower organization constantly pushing the idea that Jehovah God is loving and perfect when there are scriptures like Psalm 137:9? That scripture says "blessed is the one who seizes your infants and dashes them against the rocks." Jehovah's Witnesses are taught by the Watchtower that Jehovah God can do no wrong. Many of us survivors would agree that Jehovah is not worth worshipping.

  2. How can anyone push the idea of Jehovah God being perfect and loving after reading 1 Sam. 15:3? In this scripture Jehovah God commanded the killing of kids and infants.

  3. Would a loving God really be behind 42 children dying? Please read the account in 2 Kings 2:23-24.

  4. Did the Watchtower purposely miss-translate the bible to push their agenda of a future paradise? Luke 22:43 is a very often cited scripture to encourage the belief that one day soon all the loyal Jehovah's Witnesses will live forever in a paradise. The original text there says "truly I tell you, today you will be with me in parade" while the New World Translation version goes "truly I tell you today, you will be with me in paradise". Note the comma. Did you catch how much can change with just the move of a comma?

  5. How is Provb. 4:18 proof that the Governing Body changing doctrine is truly inspired of Jehovah God as they claim? Like with any reading, context is important. This scripture has nothing to do with new light or new understandings. That specific verse is in the middle of a discussion of if you are a good person life is relatively better... If you are a scumbag it is harder. The whole chapter literally starts with a superscript of a father's advice to his son.
