The Plan of God: Jesus [34:17]
by Dave Hixon rated at 2.8 (12 votes so far)
Who was Jesus of Nazareth? Where did he come from? Who was he? What is his true identity? How does God's plan relate to Jesus? Was he just a teacher, a wise man, or a Jewish scholar? Or is there more too it than that? Pastor Dave guides us in the first message of two explaining and understanding one of the greatest, most controversial, and most crucial topics in all of Christianity.

Leaving the Jehovah's Witnesses (Truth Matters)
by Ray Faircloth [28:06]
rated at 2.5 (out of 9 votes)
Ray Faircloth was a Jehovah's Witness (JW) for 36 years and served as both a ministerial servant and as an elder. Over his lengthy sojourn among the JWs, he sometimes came across doctrinal issues which he quietly logged in the back of his mind. He also noticed that the Watchtower Society (the organization name of the JWs) was increasing its control over the people. He observed that more and more in meetings loyalty to God's organization was being emphasized whereas loyalty to Jesus was not really talked about.
Listen in to this show to hear the insider perspective of a committed Jehovah's Witness, who never wanted to leave the fold, but who God led to see that the most fundamental doctrine of the Watchtower--that it was God's one true organization--was baseless. Ray has suffered greatly, and two of his three daughters no longer speak to him (JWs practice an extreme form of shunning). If you would like to contact Ray, especially if you have questions related to JWs, please email him: email@example.com.
