If you’d like to share how Razor Swift (the website, the groups etc.) has helped you, we’d like to hear from you! In the subject line write: “Razor Swift Testimony”.
I was a born-again Christian who still had one foot in the Watchtower (as a former JW) when I first met Rich Christian. I joined his group on Facebook, Jehovah’s Witnesses and Biblical Discussions. I didn’t believe in Hell and although many Christians tried to preach to me, they ducked the question I had. “How can a God of love, punish people in hell? How do we reconcile this issue?” The Lord used Rich Christian to open my eyes, with the use of two questions, which completely changed my viewpoint. The first one was, “If there is no such thing as hell, why did Jesus warn of it more than anyone else?” The second question was even more profound, “Was Jesus lying?” I quickly opened my Bible and starting reading Jesus’ warnings about hell. It was a mouth-drop-open moment. I walked around the house for days afterwards, saying repeatedly, “Hell is real. Oh, my word, hell is real.” I’ve shared this experience with every ex Jw who has asked me about hell ever since. There is no telling how many ex Jehovah’s Witnesses have been reached this way.
By providence (I believe to the study group “Jehovah’s Witnesses and Biblical Discussion”, by Razor Swift), I have benefited greatly from engaging on topics that are designed to break the indoctrination of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Nothing can compare to the brothers and sisters in Christ I have gained after “losing” my family and childhood friends, as a result, of the shunning policy of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. The mentorship and discussions that take place in this special group have furthered me along in my search for God after the Jehovah’s Witnesses. I am developing new Christ-centered friendships.
Razor Swift has been immensely helpful to me working out all the erroneous ideas I had about God from growing up in the Jehovah’s Witness religion and from my own atheistic perspective I had developed after I left as a teenager. It is one of my go to resources for understanding things like the tetragrammaton, the star the magi followed to find Jesus and many more. The articles are well thought out and the references from the source are provided.
I completely enjoy the groups! It gives me the opportunity to meet other Christians who have a different perspective of the Scriptures than is taught by my pastor, to consider their views and compare them to mine. This helps me grow in my faith. It gives me the opportunity to hear the views of non Christians and understand why they believe what they do. I’ve met some really fun people here – both Christian and atheist- who I never met in person but are so special to me.
