This website has a single purpose – to let the light shine on the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society and its followers known as Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Ex-JW.com will publish the truth about the history and the teachings of Jehovah’s Witnesses since their late 19th Century beginnings. We will expose the facts about their changing doctrines and teachings. We will also provide a history of Watchtower leaders and and organization.
Please go to our information page at About Ex-JW.com to read the rest of this introduction.
One thing we want to make clear: This site is not being published to attack Jehovah’s Witnesses as individuals or their families, past or present, but rather to expose a religious belief that has not only lied to its own followers, but in many ways has also damaged or destroyed their lives.
We realize that not every ex-JW has a painful story to tell. There are many current and former members who will say that they lived very happily growing up in JW families. Some will even admit that they enjoyed many of their years as Witnesses. We want provide a truly balanced and well documented description of what it is really like to be a Witness and share happy stories along with the sad.
One thing we also want to make clear: We do not hold ourselves up as the ultimate experts in every aspect of the Watchtower organization. At the same time, we do know this religious movement even better than a majority of current and active JWs do.
