Agustin Astacio is a 3rd generation ex-JW and the co-host of the radio show “Healing X JW’s” on Blogtalk Radio. He will share with us the Biblical perspective of salvation by faith and the grace that accompanies it. This is in far contrast to the works based religions such as the Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses and others. He’ll explain the difference between the two, and how you can be truly free in Christ. We will be live this Wednesday September 26th at 3 pm Pacific, 4 pm Mountain, 5 pm Central, 6 pm Eastern.

It’s our second show and we are happy to announce that we’ll be interviewing Christian apologist Jason Cole. Jason is a former Jehovah’s Witness, who was kicked out of the organization and shunned by members of the Watchtower Bible And Tract Society. Why you may ask, because he insisted that you need only the Bible alone; not magazines that add doctrines which are found nowhere in the Bible. We will be live this Friday the 31st at 4pm Pacific, 6pm Central, 7pm Eastern.

To a Christian the importance of the cross cannot be overstated. Without Jesus dying for our sins -and his resurrection, thus defeating death and Hell- our faith would be utterly worthless. To us, it’s the ultimate symbol of victory making it possible for one to be reconciled back to God. To the Jehovah’s Witnesses however, it’s an offensive symbol used in phallic worship . The reference from the previous sentence however is not an accurate explanation coming from the Watchtower Society . Regardless of where the cross originated from, what it was used for -whether in pagan ceremonies or worship etc- the point of today’s article is to examine what kind of cross that Jesus carried, and was subsequently crucified on.
It Doesn’t Add Up
John 14:2 “In my Fathers house are many mansions if it were not so I would have told you…”
Unlike Christianity who teach that all Christians go to Heaven, the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society currently teach that Heaven is reserved only for the 144,000 which are also known as the “Anointed Class”. They also teach that the choosing of this heavenly class began in the year 33 A. D. and ended in the year 1935 , until recently. From the inception of the Watchtower Bible And Tract Society -who were called “Bible Students” upon their founding, their name changed in 1931 to Jehovah’s Witnesses- to the year1935, they claimed to have had 52,465 memorial partakers . The calculations (below) are based on the 1935 numbers given by the Watchtower.
