GoverningBody.net was started in March 2021.
It’s purpose is to highlight to all, and in particular the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses, the damage their teachings, policies and instructions cause for both existing Witnesses and also ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses, along with their families and friends.
The founders are Jehovah’s Witnesses who are endeavoring to stick to Bible teachings rather than be reliant on the interpretations of self appointed men.
As a result of our own personal research we have found and continue to find many serious problems with the teachings of the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses. We aim to highlight the more dangerous ones here, so that those who are interested in becoming Jehovah’s Witnesses and existing Jehovah’s Witnesses can become aware of the problems caused by a number of teachings and policies from the Governing Body.
We accept that many Witnesses are genuine God-fearing Christians, but we know they are being misled by self-appointed men to their detriment. Everyone has a freedom to believe what they want, with the proviso that this freedom does not adversely impact others basic human rights, such as that to have a family life.
Our aim in providing this site to help encourage existing Witnesses to wake up to the misunderstandings and sometimes outright lies they are being taught by the Organization and avoid the damage both they and other ex-Witnesses have suffered.
When many Witnesses wake up to see the errors of what they believed with all their heart to be God’s organization on earth, they are often devastated. Sadly, many lose their faith in God as a result. If we succeed in helping even just a small number of Witnesses to keep their faith in God, as opposed to the Organization, as they become aware of the shortcomings of the Organization, we will feel we have succeeded in our aim.
Our fervent desire is to help all Christians, but in particular, Jehovah’s Witnesses, to take a firm stand for their faith in God and Jesus Christ, not a man-made organization. J.F. Rutherford’s statement that “”Religion Is a Snare and a Racket” is most definitely true. It applies to the religion of Jehovah’s Witnesses just as much as it does to others.
This site is not starting a new religion, it is a provided as a stepping stone to true Christian freedom. The responsibility for what you believe firmly rests with you, our dear reader, not the Governing Body, and not us.
The founders of this website are Tadua and Marina. Tadua has regularly contributed articles to Beroean Pickets and Marina has regularly commented on Discuss The Truth. She also hosts a YouTube channel called Anna Marina.
We hope you enjoy using this site and its associated sites.
