Why Jehovah’s Witnesses?

Question: While you do make very good and fascinating points, the question I have is the following: Everything in Prophecy (Ezekiel, Isaiah, etc.) you point to the JW's as per the fulfillment. Is it not possible that these prophecies can also point to say the Adventists, Mormons, Baptists, Christadelphians, etc? How can you be so

Addressing Accusations of Apostasy

Addressing Accusations of Apostasy

This is a response to an email I recently received from one of Jehovah's Witnesses.  Satan has long used apostates in his efforts to seduce God's servants (Matt.13:36-39) Apostates may claim to worship Jehovah and to believe the Bible, but they reject the visible part of his organization. This is not true. The real

Trump, Fake News, the Deep State and Bible Prophecy

Question: I noticed you tweet a lot of political news. Can you possibly explain what the correlation is between prophecy and the current political scene? I find this president extremely repulsive, immature, and full of drama. I can't tell what news is fake or real. I thought we should be expecting a financial collapse

In the time of the end – a pushing

QUESTION: Do you see the Trump vs The Globalist "pushing" as truly the "pushing" as prophecy states or is it just a distraction? It certainly seems to be a conflict between the Iron and Clay. “In the time of the end the king of the south will engage with him in a pushing, and against him

Michaelangelo's God and Adam

If Jehovah knows all, why did he bother?

Question: If Jehovah is all-knowing, then he had to have known that Satan would rebel and that Adam and Eve would follow. Since God had to have known beforehand, why did he go through with it and allow all the misery and mayhem? Doesn’t that make him responsible for all of the evil in

Jesus, Son of man, coming on the clouds of heaven

Until the Son of man arrives

QUESTION: Given the current and developing situation for the brothers and sisters in Russia, when can we expect the Watchtower organization's leadership to admonish and encourage the friends in Russia to follow Jesus' advice at Matthew 10:23? “When they persecute you in one city, flee to another; for truly I say to you, you

Russian orthodox protests Jehovah's Witnesses

If Russia Bans Jehovah’s Witnesses…

QUESTION: I've been watching the development of the story out of Russia where Jehovah's Witnesses are evidently being accused of extremism by the Russian government, which is surprising since I thought Jehovah's Witnesses hold to neutrality and have since their beginning, not even taking up arms against others. How is it, then, that they

Priest presents drink offering to Jehovah

What is the constant feature and when is it removed?

QUESTION: What is the "constant feature" mentioned in Daniel chaps. 8, 11, 12? The “constant feature” is what the Watchtower has explained it to be. Most translations either use the phrase “daily sacrifice” or “continual burnt offering.” The most literal rendering is “continual sacrifice” —alluding to the sacrifices associated with the physical tabernacle and temple

What will you do when the end comes?

QUESTION: Jehovah's Witnesses expect there to be opposition from Satan and his agents, but given that the Watchtower's leadership is making decisions contrary to God's just and loving principles and likely to result in harassment from the authorities Jehovah has in place to punish wrongdoers, and given that the typical brother and sister has

anointed partaking of the emblems at the Memorial of Jesus' death

Who Should Partake of the Memorial Emblems?

I am not claiming that all partakers are chosen to go to heaven. But not partaking isn't scriptural, for a couple reasons. 1 Timothy 4:1-5. But if all food can be consumed, so can the emblems. And this scripture may be referring to the WT, as they are the only group of people who

The Son of man, Jesus Christ, coming on the clouds of heaven

Has the first resurrection begun?

QUESTION: I have a question for you. What is your understanding of Revelation 6:10,11? The Watchtower interprets it in a way so that they may support their 1918 resurrection dogma. In their Revelation Climax book and in W07 01/01 they say that the Christian martyrs' receiving white robes represents their being resurrected in 1918

Will the people of Sodom be resurrected?

QUESTION: The Watchtower has changed their position on this several times. I would like to know your opinion. Will the people of Sodom be resurrected or not?  Pondering the question of whether or not the people of Sodom and Gomorrah will be resurrected is really peculiar to Jehovah’s Witnesses, since the mainstream churches do

How will we know when Satan is cast down?

How will we know when Satan is cast down?

As regards your video The Beginning and the End, how do you know that Satan and his angels were not thrown out of heaven in 1914? And if it happens in the future, how will we know it? As Jehovah’s Witnesses well know the Watchtower’s “evidence” for 1914 is primarily based upon chronology —the

Why do you attack the Governing Body?

Why do you attack the Governing Body?

QUESTION: Before I ask this question I just wish to make it clear that this is not a personal attack on you, so please do not take offense.  Okay, so I acknowledge that you have often clearly stated that you are not anti-JW, or bitter about having been disfellowshipped, and that you actively encourage

AND THEN THE END WILL COME

AND THEN THE END WILL COME

QUESTION: Why do you think the end hasn't come yet? What is the purpose of allowing the present system to continue? What is Jehovah actually waiting for to bring this miserable system to an end? It is disheartening, to say the least, that 2017 is upon us and this wicked system is still in

What about the 144,000 and 12 tribes?

What about the 144,000 and 12 tribes?

QUESTION: The seventh chapter of Revelation tells us that the 144,000 are taken from the 12 tribes of Israel —12,000 from each tribe. What do you believe these 12 tribes represent and what does the selection of 144k from these tribes indicate? What of those who are not taken and when does this selection

Why did the WT build a new headquarters?

Why did the WT build a new headquarters?

Why would the Watchtower organization invest the tremendous amount of money required to build their new facilities if they believed the end is as near as they proclaim it to be? And is this a parallel to the Jews continued pouring of money into Herod’s second Temple building project, even though it was all

Is the preaching work a sign of his presence?

Is the preaching work a sign of his presence?

If Jesus’ presence did not occur in 1914 how is it that one of the most prominent signs of his presence —the world wide preaching of God’s Kingdom —is being fulfilled? The last thing Jesus said before he ascended to heaven was: “All authority has been given me in heaven and on the earth.

Is the Earth Flat or Round?

Is the Earth Flat or Round?

QUESTION: Just wanted to ask your opinion on the flat earth movement circulating the internet. If the Bible supports such a claim that we live in a "terrarium" made by Jehovah's hand through his son. Reason I'm considering it is because if the earth was flat and the sun and moon and stars revolve

The Devil’s Disguise

QUESTION: Robert, What does the Devil gain, what advantage does he acquire by implementing and promoting a fake parousia of Christ? If one was to ask why is it such a big deal? Why would he go through such an elaborate reach to cause a war in 1914 to convince the masses Christ parousia
