James Penton (Watchtower historian, author and former elder)” Well done, both of you. Thank you for sharing your experience and insights which are very influential. Reply thank you for this interview .a lot of good advice and ideas for those fading or just walking away from WT. Reply As to Mr. Pentons words to us just realizing it's not the truth…I vcd will still believe I n.v the words of Jesus and to love one another and I hope to have some joy and be a moral person and I will never be a capitalist (I'm too poor!lol). Ihave been pretty isolated for decades n pi t in the truth but not in the world either. I don't want to live if the truth isn't the truth (to be honest). I'm devastated. Reply I didn’t know Canada outlawed and persecuted JWs. Reply Lloyd,first if all II love your content. I am not an ex JW and have never been one, but I am fascinated by these accounts. I remember a family of 3 children that went to school with me who were witnesses. How old were you when you were awakened??? Reply WATCHTOWER WILL FALL MISLEADING HYPOCRITES BEING EXPOSED Reply One of the most loving and considerate men I ever heard… the true example of what god and his son is. Thank you so much. The only one that truly help me see the truth. God bless you Reply I was wondering why even exjws still don't say the name Jesus , It is the name that's above every name. Reply Loved it Reply Wow! Just watched his interview carried out in the 80’s or 90’s talking about the culture of the JDubs with themes such as the victorian puritanism, authoritarianism and self righteousness of the members. I was hooked. A fantastic listen and now here is the man himself, all those years later. Incredible. Reply Sad to say there are some extremists very CRAFTY and deceptive witnesses Reply 1925, 1975… two years of false prophesy. Reply Universities are now controlled by COMMUNISTS !! Reply What a nice man Reply Brilliant interview. While I don’t agree with his thinking on cult and brainwashing that’s okay. Reply Phenomenal interview! Reply I love this guy Jim Reply Ex Jehovah's Witness here. Thank you for the content. I just want to point out that I actually very much support capitalism and think it has good effects so I disagree with you there. Reply Lol hes a fourth generation Witness and his kids are 5th generation..but he doesnt think hes been brainwashed LOL Reply POR FAVOR, NECESITAMOS EL LIBRO APOCALIPSIS APLAZADO EN ESPAÑOL. Miles de personas de habla hispana lo busca. Ayudennos Reply Enjoyed very much, Thank you. Reply I always felt the door to door work was not the most effective way to preach. Bugging people early Saturday morning and waking them up, does not reach their hearts. People hide and don’t come to the door. They are irritated. Reply Took me years to fall away and yrs to deprogram. Still have fear of destruction….brainwashing?, I think so. Reply Excellent interview and very eye opening, well done! Reply I'm not a JW,.. all organizations weather businesses or churches or religions are run by people, people are not perfect not only that but you're coming up with things that happened years ago knowing that even by the words of this man being interviewed some of them are dead and I would assume some have may have left the organization. I've gone to many churches and baptized in the Baptist Church.I can go to a club or a gentleman club,drink use drugs even being a so called member of the church live like a devil during the week show up Sunday influencing other members with my poisoning lifestyle and no one will disfellowship me.I've gone on many channels like yours that speak bad about the JW'S just to get some insight and hopefully make a decision on weather I should start a Bible study with them,all the negatives stuff you all talk about them are things in the past and another thing just about all the channels on YouTube and and all the commenters that speak horrible about the JW alot of these people were in the organization for a long time.I can understand if it was 1 year or two years and you figure how horrible they are but 5 ,10 or elder come on sounds like disgruntled or people that want to start to live like the world. Reply Fantastic!!! Reply Hands down best interview. Wow, wow, wow! Reply QUESTION OF THE YEAR ALL J DUBS HAS ANTHONY GOT BLOOD ON HIS HANDS? HAS HE BEEN OUT WARNING? OH DEAR! Reply 17:36 TONY TIGHT PANTS HAS LOST THE PLOT. HOW CAN ANYONE FALL FOR THIS CRAP? T Reply It's hard to imagine the org moderating its doctrines anytime soon. Reply I really appreciate this video. This guy amazes me. I am so grateful you got this interview done. Reply Quite enjoyable andinformative interview Reply I could listen to Dr Penton for days. What an amazing interview with a sound, rational voice. Thank you so much for this! Reply How could an academic ever become a JW..? Praise Yahweh!
