Letters from our Readers....

"Hello, ...I have read various religious pamphlets and books from the Witnesses and now I would like to read your material...". (FL).

_______________

"I would like the address of the Jehovah's Witnesses Headquarters. I enjoy reading the Watchtower booklets and want to know more about the religion and how to become a Jehovah's Witness". (OK).

_______________

"Would you please send me a copy of JW facts as there are a lot of answers I'm looking for. Thanks." (MO).

_______________

"...My mother-in-law is VERY dedicated to that JW religion and thinks she is a committed Christian. I have talked to her many times about the Scriptures and she has an answer for everything I point out!!! How do I reach her?....". (PA).

_______________

"They have been trying to get me to change my religion to Jehovah's Witnesses for about 30 years. They don't understand what NO means...". (MO).

_______________

"I have been studying with the Witnesses for about a year now. I have been told to explore all options, religions, etc. before committing myself and my life to them and their cause. If there are "unknown" facts or secrets that the Society has been keeping, I'd like to know...this is a big, big, issue for me. Please shed some light on the matter". (VA).

_______________

"I request info on Jehovah's Witnesses as we have a few around here. All they try to tell me is hard to swallow. I want to learn the truth". (SD).

_______________

"Would you please send me this information. I'm very interested as several in my family belong to this JW religion, and its really upset the whole family". (ME).

_______________

"I'm requesting a prayer for my grandson and his wife of 3 years. They have 2 beautiful babies, ages 21 months and 4 months old. His wife left him and he is hurting. Her friends are JW's who brainwashed her and I'm trying to help to explain to her and my grandson about the JW cult. Please pray for them, and for her JW friends to stay out of their marriage and life. I have already received from you a legal pack regarding child custody in case something comes up, like a divorce. I hope their marriage is saved. God bless you sincerely! ...". (NV).

_______________

"I am enclosing a donation...I also want to tell you about a recent conversation on the subject of Mormonism. I spoke with an elderly lady at church before a Missionary banquet about Mormonism ... She said she remembered Donny and Marie Osmond. I told her that Mormon women are expected to have a baby on a yearly basis since the LDS church teaches that Mormon spirits are waiting in heaven for earthly bodies! She thought that women should not have to obey a church's teachings regarding their family size...Here is a name of a LDS family. Please mail information to them". (PA).

_______________

"I have an extensive library of videos and books relating mostly to apologetics and have quite a few John Ankerberg tapes as well. But your website is one of the best I have ever seen. Keep up the good work for the kingdom!!" (e-mail).

_______________

"I am a brother in the JW Organization, so I would like to know what the Society does not want me to know. Please send me the free information so I can read it for myself." (MN).

____________

"Please send me the JW facts. I have a sister that gave several millions to the JW's. Saw your ad. Thank you". (RI).

_______________

"I am writing for information concerning the Society of JW. I saw your ad in a magazine and it instantly caught my attention...your service is appreciated." (FL).

_______________

"Please send information...I have a granddaughter who is trying to get out of the JW's and is meeting all sorts of opposition. I never was in, but my daughter got "hooked" years ago." (AB).

_______________

"I am interested in finding out the teachings of the Jehovah's Witnesses as quickly and as plainly written as it can be". (VA).

_______________

"I am seeking for God, and I've been studying with the JW's, but if there's something that I find out they have hidden, I will discontinue with my studies. Thank you very much". (MA).

_______________

"I have read your ad...I am in search of the truth pertaining to the nature of the theocratic proposals put forth by the Society. Thank you". (BC).

_______________

"I am still teaching students at Bible Colleges about cults. As I have said before, I always show your videos about JW's, Mormons, Catholicism, and Free Masons. It helps so much and makes the teaching easy. I go to the Solomon Islands for two months every year and your help with the cults helps the churches there. The Mormons, JW's, United Pentecostals and Christadelphians are not doing so well now, thanks to you. Enclosed is my subscription...God bless you". (New Zealand).

_______________

"I have been married to a great man whose whole family are Witnesses. They did drag my oldest son in for about a year, and he is now disassociated, and boy, what a nightmare that has caused! But I and my husband are glad it is over, and we are no longer talking to his whole family, and they are not talking to us. My husband and I have the only grandchildren they will ever have, and they will have nothing to do with them for the rest of their lives. Honestly, that was a relief to me, as I have looked all over for a site like yours for a long time. I am very glad I found it. I wish I would have found it sooner. It seems to really put things in perspective. Thanks again". (e-mail).

_______________

"I wanted to write and thank you for your wonderfully informed website. My husband, a former catholic, became a convert (cult member) of the Seventh-day Adventists four years ago. I pray that God will open his eyes and let him see SDA for what it is...Isn't it interesting that the SDA's do not share the official teachings of their church with the converts. They do "bible studies" instead to convince the convert of the error of his ways. I have downloaded and printed much of your material for my husband to read, in addition to his morning "Bible Study". Pray with me that God will grant him an open mind". (e-mail).

_______________

"...I have a friend who is a Jehovah's Witness and I can't tell the difference between what is taught in their publications and what is taught to me in church. I am worried about him...Please send your facts...". (TX).

_______________

"I have a sister who is a "Jehovah's Witness" and would like to know the TRUE facts about them. I have had a lot of trouble with this sister and would like to know all about them...". (CO).

_______________

"I have been studying with Jehovah's Witnesses for some time. My husband hates the idea and constantly lets me know. It does cause arguments. He insists that they try to break up marriages and families if they disagree. But they do have some pretty harsh rules. Let me know what it is they don't want me to know". (CA).

_________

"I am a disfellowshipped JW in prison...My common-law wife sends me these cross-word puzzles out of the (I think) National Inquirer. On the back are advertisements of various subjects, and I came across your ad... I want and need spiritual help and guidance... If it is Jehovah God's will for me, then you will return a letter bringing me up to date from my long lost 26 years..." (TX).

_______________

"I do cult research also and would like to subscribe to your magazine. I really enjoyed "Witness at Your Door" and "The Witness Goes Out". They are very beneficial for converting Jehovah's Witnesses. My half-sister is a JW and I am hoping this next summer when I visit her, I can at least plant that seed. If you have any good books or videos to help me I would really appreciate it. Last year I started looking into the JW organization, and thanks to you, I changed my mind. Now I am studying really deep into the organization and have made a web page but it's not quite finished yet. Thank you so much for opening my eyes and hopefully others too. " (e-mail).

"I am a believer in Christ. My Mom is a Jehovah's Witness and I'm not agreeing on their beliefs or doctrines. Can you help?...". (TX).

_______________

"I am thankful the Lord blessed me with your friendship. Thanks for your support with this ministry the Lord placed on my heart. I pray that the Lord will bless us with fruits from our labors in the coming year! Aloha in Christ". (HI).

________

"Our elderly brother's estate has now been taken over by a JW. This woman obtained a Power of Attorney, even though my brother had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease. We are not sure it is his signature on the "Power of Attorney". She (the JW) has emptied his bank accounts already in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and is now going after his Condo. He had made his daughter Trustee and given her a full power of attorney! Yet my JW sister had him void all of this and make her the "Trustee". Now my niece has lost all, due to this JW and her tactics!...Please hurry and thank you!". (KY).

_______________

"As mentioned in the ad...I would like information on the Jehovah's Witnesses and the facts they are hiding". (AL).

_______________

"I had a neighbor lady who lost all her property to the Jehovah's Witnesses. The man who called on me admitted the Bobcat he was driving had been hers. Please send your facts". (NH).

_______________

"I got your address off a flyer that was posted on our bulletin board in the complex where I live. You offer info about Jehovah's Witnesses and I would love to have it". (BC).

_______________

"We were in captivity to JW's for fifteen years and have now been free for fifteen years---still keeping up the little phone ministry line for JW's. I always think that I'm going to stop, but then I always know He still wants me to keep going...very appreciative of the wonderful comfort of the Holy Spirit, and the wonderful grace to be able to say "Abba Father"...our children are all in their forties now, but we can't give up hope, that's for sure...we know that our Lord is in control and brings us peace, and yes, even joy, in the sadness of our family situation. You two are so special, but yes, I know all the glory belongs to our Lord, Our Savior, Our King, our Awesome God...". (e-mail).

_______________

"Bless you for your site of truth. I was a United Pentecostal Church member for 14 years. Now I'm out, but not without being shunned etc. There's a wonderful site that tells much about the inner workings of this cult and my own testimony is up on that site www.spiritualabuse.org/ "Whom the Son hath set free is free indeed". (e-mail).

_______________

"Praise the Lord! I just got home after an awesome day of serving our Lord!...There were 25 people at the study this morning learning about witnessing to JW's...Pastor Sam and my church have been very supportive in providing the assistance and resources available to make this study possible. Almost the entire presentation and information shared is from Keith & Lorri MacGregor Ministries... Bless them, oh Lord!" (e-mail).

_______________

"I personally knew a JW elder who changed his name and location after people became suspicious. Seems that he molested at least two other girls plus the ones I know about. One was his niece, whom I knew. He was an elder in the congregation at the time. He was a friend of my brother's at the time and also my ex-husband. This girl is afraid of him finding out where she is. Her testimony put him in prison but she wasn't notified when he was released from jail...This person molested at least 3 girls and was involved with pornography, yet the elders now claim that there are no records???The Watchtower protected him so he could go on his evil path. " (e-mail).

_______________

"Thank you so much for the time and effort obviously put into your website. I am a believer with Seventh Day Adventist in-laws. The material on the website is a wealth of information to help me witness to my wife's family. I have learned much from this website and it is permanently listed in my browsers favorites now. I don't know how much positive feedback you get, but I felt I would be remiss if I didn't express my heartfelt appreciation." (WA).

_______________

"A huge thank you for your info on the cults. In '96 I was living with a JW, and finally, finally, after 5 years, the presently 56-year old JW, who had spent 30 years of his life attending 5 meetings a week has seen the glorious good news of the truth. I don't live in the same city as he does now, but when I receive letters from him, he usually closes with a quote from the Apostle Paul, "Christ IN you, the hope of glory". It it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have known how to deal with this group of lost sincere people... know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain (1 Cor. 15:58)." (e-mail).

_______________

"...I just wanted to tell you that my Son used the letter you sent as a guide (he altered it a little) and mailed in his disassociation letter to the JW's this week...I have always thought he would be the first domino in the family, as far as leaving the org. is concerned. Of course I am very happy...We are taking a trip together to try to make up for all the lost years...". (e-mail).

_______________

"I am an ex-JW. I was born into a very devout family. My family is still in, and I'm currently in therapy to eventually overcome the many fears and dysfunctions that I live with as a result of being born into this oppressive environment. Please mail me your information." (QC).

_______________

"I was reading through the Almanac and see that you have information on the JW's...I know that they steal...I have a young son who is tangled up with them, brought in by what he thought was a beautiful woman. He had been a virgin until that time. She works among senior citizens but I do not trust her at all...Every time someone dies she makes sure she goes to the funeral. I know she has removed things from their homes without their knowledge." (ON).

_______________

"I am most interested in receiving your information...having studied for two years and attended JW meetings regularly. Yet, we can't seem to make a decision to be baptized. Something is wrong! Something doesn't feel right. Any insight would be appreciated." (ON).

_______________

"We are constantly pestered by the Jehovahs, so we are interested in whatever info you all have on them." (LA).

_______________

"Respectfully, I am of the Jehovah's Witness religious beliefs, but I would like to receive the facts that the Society's hiding...". (FL).

_______________

"I received a reply to my letter and I want to thank you, Lorri, for your personal note to me. I appreciate your taking time to write to me personally and giving me some of the information concerning the Armor of God TV program. I felt it was not a program that maybe I should be watching...I want to do the right thing. I love my Lord, and being a shut-in I want to watch only good Christian programs...I will be supporting your ministry from time to time as I am able...". (MB).

_______________

"Since 1990 I have felt the call of the Lord to unmask the Jehovah's Witnesses from my town in Puerto Rico, by radio, TV, and lots of tracts that I have spread around to the USA, the Caribbean, Central and South America, and some parts of Europe. ..I saw your ad and visited your web page. It's very interesting and I would like your permit to use it in our radio program...God bless you all". (PR).

_______________

"I am just thankful that after 25 years God never left me in the cult of the Worldwide Church of God. It has not been easy, but by the grace of God I am what I am...Thanks for the information... Grace and peace to you through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ." (e-mail).

_______________

"Please send me your guide to Jehovah's Witnesses". (OH).

_______________

"Please send facts on the Society. I have often asked questions but never got answers...The God I serve is not a secret and I don't believe he has a Secret Society". (KY). That's all folks!

That's all folks! Keep praying!

 

*** Each past issue of "News & Views"

has more pages of letters from our readers. MM


That's all folks! Keep writing!

If you have a testimony of an experience in a cult group that you would like to share with others drop us a note or EMAIL. For any of our books DVDs and audio tapes mentioned in the letters above check our order form links to the left.

Some have mentioned our adds we place in local weekly newspapers, even the Farmers Almanac. This is an ongoing ministry all across Canada and the U.S. If you would like to be part of it you can help in two different ways.

One is to place a small add in your local weekly newspaper (we will supply you with the wording) or you can get a sample from our News & Views magazine.

Second if you can help us with the costs of running these adds. Usually we purchase blocks of weekly adds from newspaper chains to run in all of their papers. These cost us several hundreds of dollars and up depending how many papers will carry the ads. Any financial help to pay for these adds is very much appreciated.

Many of these excerpts above come from our adds. These were from mail we received in just the last few months and represent only a small portion of the letters we receive. In our files are many hundreds more of similar stories

There are hundreds of people out there that never write us who have been set free from cultic bondage from just a small ad in their local paper, please help us if you can........Thanks
