Escaping Jehovah’s Witnesses: Inside the dangerous world of a brutal religion

Former Jehovah’s Witnesses are fighting back against a religion that failed them. They know they’ll lose their loved ones for doing so.

Few know the extreme nature of the beliefs of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, a religious group which boasts eight million followers in multiple nations. They take a strict interpretation of the Bible and predicted the world would meet its ‘wicked end’ in 1914, 1925 and 1975. A US-based Governing Body of eight men sits at the pinnacle of the Jehovah’s Witnesses organisation. Witnesses believe these men are anointed as the voice of God on Earth. Former members reveal the secretive practices used to instil fear and maintain discipline among followers. With strict rules governing every aspect of their lives, these former Witnesses say the organisation is controlling and dangerous. They say it’s time to hold the Jehovah’s Witnesses to account.

  1. Jehovah´s Witnesses became part(or always were?) of what they said it was Babylon the Great.
    That fact is absolutely and completely hideous. I wish more people wake up of their indoctrination and leave that religion ASAP.
