Watchtower Society – Clarification No. 46
On the way to Oberhausen I refuelled and felt an urgent emergency situation, which screamed for help. I hate to go to the toilet at motorway filling stations. Under no circumstances had I decided to visit the Niedernhausen Jehovah's Witnesses again, but when the next exit was Niedernhausen, I thought it was funny that I couldn't pass this exit of all places. The Jehovah's Witnesses had rebuilt their bookstore on the small market square, which offers only room for a roll and an egg. My adrenaline level rose, I parked my motorcycle as close as possible and rummaged for my signs.
I held up the shield: "Jehovah's Witnesses bleed people to death for Jehovah. – Deepest paganism" One of the three very young, attractive, handsome Jehovah's Witnesses began to laugh. It was embarrassing, but I rewound my serious program and asked several times how you could laugh at something like that. While I was still thinking out loud: "This is not ridiculous, this is very serious!" the new Jehovah's Witness approached me and started a friendly conversation with me. I was prepared to listen to insults or endless Watchtower repetitions, but this Jehovah's Witness said: "Following on from last week's conversation ..." and asked decidedly for the biblical passages I had quoted at the time.
After I had noticed that he wasn't fake and didn't look like the Watchtower schoolmaster to me, I introduced myself by name and he replied. We shook hands in a joy I otherwise only feel with Christians. I could and was allowed to tell him so much, as it has never happened to me before with a Jehovah's Witness. He said that he wanted to test everything and we said goodbye again with this handshake that I hold so dear among Christians: firm and honest. As I sat on the motorcycle and looked over to the bookstall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Niedernhausen, I saw the three young women talking to Jehovah's Witnesses. My hope and my prayer is that this Jehovah's Witness will be honest with the information and that he did not pretend. What a great opportunity has opened up for people to discover the teaching of God, Jesus, the Lord of all wisdom, goodness and salvation, caught up in a human teaching! How wonderful it is when there the hollow good man version of the Watchtower Bible is replaced by the direct action of the Holy Spirit!
Praising and thanking I drove on in the direction of Oberhausen.
The next day (Saturday, 17.08.2013) I visited Essen-Frohnhausen, the site of the massive Jehovah's Witness presence on Saturday a week ago. I first found only one Jehovah's Witness hiding in the shadow of an inconspicuous entrance. He immediately withdrew when I presented him with the Watchtower Jesus picture with the erect penis in combination with the saying: "The Watchtower Society represents Jesus with an erect penis." This person must have been freshly seduced because he couldn't stand this pressure for a second. And he did not give the impression of a blocked Jehovah's Witness.
At the market I met the Jehovah's Witness whom Nadja and I had already spoken to a week earlier. He gave himself ironcladly and it became clear that he was already deep in the spiritual captivity of the Watchtower heresy. My statement that it was religious murder to bleed people to death for a god did not upset him at all. He had deeply internalized the Watchtower arguments and simply walked away when he realized that doubts could arise in him.
Approach Jehovah's Witnesses and ask them why they are bleeding people to death for their God. This can save a lot of lives in a practical and spiritual way. Don't get involved in the flimsy reasons. Consider! Jesus said: "By their works you will know them. He did not say, "By their explanations you shall know them. In fact, the work of the Watchtower Society is to cause people to bleed themselves or others to death for religious reasons.
