Conference Calls

Bible Students are hosting live interactive Conference Calls and webcasts.  Some of these can be found at another site here:  Saturday Conference Calls.   You are invited to join us.  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 these Webcasts and Conference Calls.  In the Webcasts, 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 these events.  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.

    we are all part of something in this world but its not possible to be a friend of a jehovahs witness (unless you are one) that fact remains as for me Im part of this world for now its a question of belief jesus? jehovah? you decide….but if you do know the truth deep down and have had your holy spirit removed you will not get it back.

  • vincent wilson

    there is no turning back if you sin against the holy spirit you would for sure lose the life you have and for all eternity..continuing to sin against the holy spirit over the many many years means that you are declaring yourself in (opposition to god) having already recieved the holy spirit and defying it.. this combination is deadly in addition to this do we really die because of sin? if someone dies of cancer then that is the cause of death of that is what is cancer however in old age we die you see our bodies are designed to last forever….so yes it is sin and all that is about to change very soon

    • Jacqueline

      Thanks Vincent, just wanted to hear your viewpoint. And yes we pray for the peace of God to come to this earth. How close do you think it is? No dates, just do you believe we are in the last days of this system?

  • vincent wilson

    do we for example die from cancer or from sin?and my father died of cancer way back in 1972 as for hitler he wasnt some average lunatic but infact one who oftenly dabbled in black magic and the occult (doing the bid of the devil)and his will as regarding the man jesus he will remain but simply a man but nothing more to the (unbelievers) in addition to this a liar will become more manipulative then tell me a person that hasnt ever lied……so we need the power of healing sadly many turn away from what is the truth

  • vincent wilson

    sinning against the son of god will be forgiven and for all time but any person sinning against the holy spirit (will not) the slow process of resurrecting the dead back in to life will start with the ones who have recently died and then going steadily backwards because god cannot bring everybody back into the future life in one go and why would i need to check out anything to do with the bible? for me theres no need the truth is in me of that i am certain

    • Jacqueline

      Are you a witness Vincent? Do you believe the Bible as the word of God? How did you get this truth in you? I don’t think I am understanding what you are saying. Please give us more info about who you are and what is your source info. Thank you, Jacqueline

      • Jacqueline

        Vincent do you have a witness background? Sometimes it is easier to speak if you know what the person might believe or been exposed to. And do you accept the bible as the truth? Jacqueline

        PS. Vincent yes persons, including my father that had Cancer died because of sin. Jesus is the only person not to die because of sin. Jehovah forsook him to let it happen, removed the veil of protection that obedient Jesus had so that he might let the life force go out, die. Also may I ask you Vincent what is sin against the holy spirit. I am interested in your thoughts on this. Thank you.
        Psalm 51:5 in sin my mother conceived me.
        Rom. 5:21 Sin ruled as king with death
        Rom 6:23 The wages sin pays is death.

  • vincent wilson

    there are different levels to one being debauched just the same way for anyone taking up the fight of the devil against god but if you are saying would i judge hitler the same way i would a liar then you are mistaken no i would not because hitler was truly the scum of the earth responsible for killing 80 million people and although dying is one thing he just didnt wipe them out the end but killed off entire generations of those people who would have come into being so now these people in turn are (in jehovahs memory)and only a good heart condition with holy spirit poured out on one self can ever forgive……maybe

    • Jacqueline

      I agree with you Vincent that Hitler was a horrible blight on humanity. Also Herod that killed the babies. The JW father that killed his whole family 3 months ago and the suicide bombers. And if a baby lived for a month and just stopped breathing and died, all of them died as a result of sin. The manner and the atrocity of their death have different levels of gravities. Yet you, I and all the good people die every day of so called natural causes, but still because Adam sinned. Lies are often the start of serious events such as murder and the one starting it isn’t blamed. I guess what I am trying to say Vincent is that when we as humans start assigning which sin we think should be forgiven and corrected. We make ourselves Jesus in judging and this has been given to him. The 50 million Jews, Russian, gypsies and Christians that died in the holocaust will return and I would hate to be Hitler to have to face them and what will his heart be like then? I don’t know. The millions of slaves that perished on the ships during the centuries and the armies that have slaughtered whole families in generations housed together, yes Vincent, we need Jesus and we thank him that he will straighten it out. He is the judge and I will leave it to him.
      Rom 8:22 in part says “We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth, right up to the present time.” Since Christ we now have hope. We can receive our dead by resurrection.
      Rom 8: 20-21 says in part ‘that creation is subjected to futility in HOPE and that it will be set free and verse 25 shows that the saints wait for it along with patience

      . I know as a witness I was taught to be vindictive on all not witnesses, but would cry when I would look at families and try to preach to them to change before Armageddon. It never made sense to me that God Jehovah was like the Witnesses explained with Armageddon.
      I wondered if this is so urgent instead of slow door to door, use TV, Radio, Internet, billboards spend some of their billions to warn the people. At least use a bull horn! This work will be done in the millennium as each one will walk with his instructor up the temple steps. Enjoyed Vincent, take care. Jacqueline

  • vincent wilson

    i would not convince yourselves on getting your life back now if god was to unleash the end right now as it where of this system of things as it is now right now read for yourselves behold jehovah is a killer and sends many angels to destroy the (bad ones) beware of (myriads) but the end is not yet because there are 2 bible phrophecies left to be fulfilled of which may come at anytime we can only (hope) of a ressurection but what man can resist the devil? theres only a few (job) but never never the many

  • vincent wilson

    no thats entirely right in its form because many wicked people here and now are and have hardened their hearts against gods will (jehovahs will) and have sinned against the holy spirit far too many times to recieve further forgiveness because they simply do not care or even believe infact some are so debauched that they try to and attempt to imitate the devil himself not knowing the right from the wrong anymore these are the signs of pangs of distress of which (billions) are destined to die

    • Anonymous

      Vincent, yes there are many wicked people in the world today just as there were many wicked nations back in the Israelite age,Jehovah did not execute all of them when he was executing the egyptians,babalonians and caananites,etc. Why was that Frank?

      • Jacqueline

        I think that is a good analogy of how the world can be judged and not kill everybody that is bad, Anonymous. Armageddon as viewed by the JW has really caused them to get all the scriptures out of the correct time period.

    • Jacqueline

      Vincent I used to be judgmental of people Jesus died for and redeemed.
      John 5:22 “For the Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son.”You say “some are debauched and try to imitate the devil himself not knowing the right from the wrong anymore”. This may be a true statement.
      All men the baby sinner and the debauched fall under sin, even doing acts in bad faith are sin. (Romans 14:23) Sin is sin and Jesus ransomed Adam and all mankind coming out of him. He is a ransom for all.
      1Tim 2:5,6 “For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave himself as a ransom FOR ALL’ “.
      1Cor 15:22 “Just as ALL MEN die in Adam, so ALL men will be brought to life in Christ.”
      Are you saying that men will be judged whether they know or not just because they sin? Then you, I and everybody should be judged also now. A gossiper and a liar is just as bad as the debauched ones. That is why all things will be restored and everybody taught in Millenium and then the “wicked” will be destroyed in Gehenna. And not man but Jehovah does that after all things has been turned over to him by Christ.
      Simply put, if a man dies in Adam he is redeemed. All men now dying are redeemed and will come back whether dying a minute before Armageddon or in the midst of it for it is not judgment of men taking place then but judgment and the overthrow of the governments and systems that run the world now.
      Your and my next door, non JW neighbor can survive and one of us die from cancer or as a result of the war one day, we are all dying in Adam. That is how I see it Vincent now instead of as the JW tried to put it. They put the scriptures in the wrong age. Most of their pre-millennium fulfillment really belong after Armageddon in Judgement day. (BTW, even the JW now teach since about 2005 that Judgment day is the 1,000 yr reign of Christ.) In Christ Jacqueline

  • vincent wilson

    the book of revelations makes it very clear as to who will live and who will die however i also know as what you are refering to that of course would be and is the second death but as i said jehovah is a far more complex issue but if you are declaring yourselves as friends of jehovahs witnesses Im afraid you would only be deluding yourself that link is the one i mentioned earlier reference of/to no part of this world or worldly people remember what was and is layed down regarding the hot and cold water illustration it was of course spat out and rejected in addition to that hell fire is initself is of course total nonesense

    • Peter K. (admin)

      Vincent – revelation shows that many of the wicked will survive armageddon and then be invited to enter the new kingdom system of things.

      Revelation 22:14-15, 17 NASB
      Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter by the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying. The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” And let the one who hears say, “Come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost.incent – Revelation show that the wicked are still on earth after Armageddon and are invited to join the new system of things.

  • vincent wilson

    jehovahs witnesses are infact fair weather friends and only consider their real friends amongst their own organisation members.. you cannot simply say Im a friend of a jehovahs witness that doesnt work as for jehovah is a far more complex issue because the laws required that he layed down make it exremly hard to be saved and i mean for that matter anyone and so much so that even for a rightous man will struggle to be saved.. we are simply dragged down by the devil and the truth about jehovah is that he is now carefully devising the destruction of billions of people so you can hardly refer to him as a (loving god)either and think about the loss of human life..millions will be saved and billions will die

    • Jacqueline

      Vincent, perhaps reading these articles first about Armageddon will give you the Bible’s real truth about Armageddon the destruction that you are referring too. What the witnesses teach is simply not in harmony with what the Bible teaches. Hellfire and Armageddon are control doctrines to keep the masses under the control of the governingbody of 8 men. You don’t have to fear God, he is not like they say.
      http://www.friendsofjehovahswitnesses.com/category/armageddon-2/ . Let’s discuss any one of these articles with ones on this site to get at the heart of this supposed slaughter of billions that the witnesses talk about. This survival of just Jehovah witnesses only is just not true. Jesus ransomed ALL of mankind and if you die now or are a casualty at Armageddon because it will be a war, it will Adamic death not the second type of death, Gehenna. All that die in Adam will rise again and get to know the real truth about God. So Jesus is your friend and it is a “FREE GIFT”, you can’t earn it. He already assured you and I that we are ransomed.
      Judgment day is 1,000yrs long. It is not now for mankind in general.
      To the left on the site you can click on other subjects that might help you to understand about other issues that Jehovah witnesses have changed to suit their doctrine. Take Care Vincent, we are here to help.

      Vincent,

      It would be interesting for us to hear your experiences among the JWs. We understand that JWs are only allowed to have friends among other JWs so as not to be contaminated with worldly and Apostate influences. Yet here we stand as friends of JWs with about 125 visits ever day (over 3,000 per month). Many JWs have testified of the blessings and encouragement received here. Just to have others to talk with or to hear their experiences makes them feel not so alone, realizing that others are struggling through the same or similiar challenges. Several of these have become Bible Students and testify to the new joy that they feel and the great weight of fear and anxiety that has been lifted off their chest. Jehovah is longsuffering ans so should we be. With great patience and continued expressions of love and care, Bible Students have helped many JWs to realize that they have friends who can offer comfort and encouragement through their trials.

      I agree with what Jacqueline saie abut Armageddon. Check out the link and articles there. Jehovah is more loving and merciful then you can imagine. The Bible teaches that all men, even the wicked will have an opportunity for repentance and everlasting life on the future Paradise earth.

  • vincent wilson

    you are friends of jehovahs witnesses? thats not really possible because if you are not a jehovahs witness you cannot be a friend of one you see they see you as (no part of this world) i mean they shun infact anyone who is not a jehovahs witness or studying the bible with them in addition to this they made several false predictions gone badly wrong and the truth is its almost impossible to be saved because you have to be like god in order to do so and then there is a question of the devil of which very few can reject in our world full of pain and misery

    • Peter K. (admin)

      Vincent – Let me explain how we can be Friends of Jehovah’s Witnesses. 

      Galatians 6:10 (NASV) says, “So then, as we have opportunity, let us work that which is good toward all men, and especially toward them that are of the household of the faith.”

      Within the Jehovah’s Witness Organization, there are people who love God, Jesus and the Bible. Some of these people break their organization’s rules by visiting us here on our Friends of JWs website.  We appreciate that and desire to extend our hand of love and friendship.  We appreciate that they want to fellowship with us here.

      Regarding wrong predictions, like 1925 and 1975 which did not work out, we do not hold a grudge against todays JWs for mistakes in the past.  We allow them the liberty to have their views on prophecy and if they choose, to discuss them here.  Then any of us who are interested can respond pro or con.  This website is about allowing the type of open and back and forth discussions that they would not be permitted to have at their kingdom hall.
