This site of GoverningBody.net was started in March 2021. The aim of the site “The Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses under the Spotlight” is to draw attention to the policies and teachings of the Governing Body which can be damaging to existing Jehovah’s Witnesses or their families.

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 accept that many Witnesses are genuine God-fearing Christians.

Our aim in providing this site is to help encourage existing Witnesses to wake up to the misunderstandings and sometimes outright lies they are being taught by the Organization. We also want to provide support to those waking up or woken up who appreciate a critical review of the issues with the Organization’s propaganda.

The material is provided so that they can be encouraged and also so they can assist their loved ones to likewise wake up to the problems with the incorrect message being given by the Governing Body and its assistants.

Many Witnesses that wake up to the errors of what they believed with all their heart to be God’s organization on earth are devastated. 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 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. This site is not a new religion, it is provided as a stepping stone to true Christian freedom.

This site endeavors to provide sound research into Bible teachings rather than personal opinions.

The founders of this website are Tadua and Marina, who were both formerly Jehovah’s Witnesses themselves. 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.
