CHRISTIAN ALERT—Watchtower Society rapid growth
RUTH BAKER
Recently I received some very disturbing news that the Watchtower Society of Jehovah’s Witnesses is growing in leaps and bounds. This news should be of great concern to all Christians. Particularly since many Christians have lapsed into a false sense of security and denial that their faith can be challenged and ultimately undermined by this organization.

The first eye-opener came when I was conducting a local speaking engagement on the Watchtower Society and offering my book for sale. I was greatly surprised to find that a Hispanic lady was in attendance who had been studying with a Jehovah’s Witness for about two years. She secretly came to this meeting since she had many questions about the Society but didn’t want the Witnesses to find out she was at the meeting. The result was that we had a very open and lengthy discussion. During our conversation, however, I discovered that the Kingdom Hall that she had been attending just a few miles from my home had grown from an attendance of approximately fifty to sixty people to a current attendance of two hundred plus people every week. Folks, this was about 400% increase in just two years!

The other bit of news came from a pastor friend in Colorado who works with the Day Spring missionary training program in Mexico. He stated that he wanted to get my book translated into Spanish since the Watchtower Society has a very strong showing in Mexico—in his words their grip has expanded into a stronghold.

The bottom line is that I know from this new information and my past experience as a JW for twenty years that, in particular, people who are Catholic, poor, and under-educated are at the greatest risk of listening to and accepting Watchtower doctrines.

Although these people are at the greatest risk, I have seen people from nearly every other denomination converted to a Jehovah’s Witness.

Please learn how to protect yourself, your families, and your friends from this fast growing belief system by purchasing and reading Knock, Knock: Shedding light on Jehovah’s Witness at the door. This is not just a sales pitch. Everyone needs to have this book on their bookshelf. It steps outside the norm of other books on the subject. It shows their tactics and methods, as well as, the spiritual, mental, physical, and social impact the WTS has on each individual. The book also gives pointers on how to give JWs a gospel message without an argument.

Interesting I must say. I don't, however, believe that people are so prone to JW beliefs but that they are looking for SOME hope. Because JW are diligent (something we in other religions do need to begin to do) and also willing to put themselves out there door to door they are winning people simply because they're there. In these dwindling times the church needs to step outside of the building and reach those who are hurting and without God instead of allowing them to be led astray by JW. Yes, I definitely agree with you we need to be more educated on their tactics and their religion because they are out there! Thank you for sharing!

I once had this group come to my door. I invited them in and listened to them speak then they listened to my testimony and I shared with them the gospel. They did not remain long after that but I prefer to believe those seed planted in their thinking took root. We can use their presence as an opportunity of sharing the truth. GOD BLESS YOU FOR SHARING
