David Stein interviewed Rolando Rodriguez, a former JW and now a Bible Student elder, who has a ministry reaching out to JWs. Born and raised a Catholic, Rolando was converted to the Jehovah’s Witnesses by a childhood friend, who just 2 weeks before his baptism was disfellowshipped. Rolando served with the Jehovah’s Witnesses in various capacities from 1982 to 1994. It was in 1985 that he discovered Pastor Russell’s writings. However having been informed by the Society that the Bible Students no longer existed and became Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1981, he continued on with the Witnesses. You can get more of his story here:
Here are some of the questions David Stein asked Rolando Rodriguez, as well as some of the issues discussed.
Bible Students will host live interactive webcasts on certain Friday nights. You are invited to join us and you can be totally anonymous. Our purpose is not to attack JWs. We would like to have an open and friendly two-way dialogue with Jehovah’s Witnesses and Ex-JWs in this broadcast and future ones as well. Our Abdobe Connect technology will allow you to anonymously type questions, comments and testimonies without fear of being identified by your local Elder, Circuit Overseer or the Governing Body. You will even be able to talk directly to us using your computer microphone. There is no charge for this event. If you cannot attend we will post a recording here. You will also have the option of talking to the host and guest after the interview, which will be for at least an hour.
On Oct 1, we had a Webcast where David Stein gave his personal testimony of his life’s journey through from Catholic, to JW to Bethelite, to Bible Student. If you missed our last Webcast, you can view it here:
