About JWlove

“But speaking truth in love, we may grow up in all things into him, who is the head, even Christ.”–Ephesians 4:15

We do not hate Jehovah’s Witnesses by any means, but on the contrary love impels us to speak, to reach out to them, to offer support to current and former members of this denomination. To quote the website JWStruggle, “We DO NOT wish to beat our fellow slaves or to disrespect” anyone who does not share our views.

Who are we? We are your neighbors–not monsters, not demonic humans, not boogeymen. We follow Christ alone. We believe salvation is by Grace alone (aka undeserved kindness) and not owing to any system of law or works. We hold Scripture as the highest authority on matters of doctrine, but we are not fundamentalists.

We are Christians and denominationally neutral. We do not want you to follow us or to accept what we say as the final word on matters, but merely wish to present what we’ve learned from the Scriptures. The hope is that this site will not be the final stop in your research, but just the beginning. We encourage everyone to explore multiple viewpoints on a matter, not just one, and use your powers of reasoning.

We wholeheartedly embrace the saying: “In Essentials, Unity. In non-essentials, Liberty. In all things, Love.” What are the Essentials? 1 Corinthians 2:2 says, For I decided not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ, and him executed on the stake.”

As far as other things, why be dogmatic? The Apostle Paul said at 1 Corinthians 13:12, that “for now we see in hazy outline by means of a metal mirror…at present I know partially.” Are we any better than the Apostle Paul?

At Romans 11:33, the Apostle says, “O the depth of God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How unsearchable his judgments are and beyond tracing out his ways are!God is Infinite and we are not…only he knows the whole picture. We fallible human beings cannot known it all, therefore, it is a mistake to seek totalistic doctrinal conformity in all matters. As Romans 14 shows, we must learn to respect those who have different viewpoints, and continually show love toward them.
