Hello brother and sister, [my mom] wanted me to express how great the Leadership by Example article is and how authentic it looks. And we all here in Texas wish it were a reality but who knows what the future holds in store especially if the sons of God the Father take control by means of the power of the spirit. Also congrats on the Christ Experiment site. We both say that's the place for us, so were counting you to take us deep into the heavenly kingdom and explore the immense possibilities that exist. Mom didn't want you to think we fell off the wagon of truth. On the contrary, we are growing in many directions as far as one that we’re of different denominations now serving Christ by faith and not rules and doctrines. So things are just fabulous, so keep doing your feeding and we will write you soon, love you for everything.

[From a former Elder]  Greetings Loved Ones, what a Gem of an article.  I was sitting with some friends when I first read the Leadership by Example and it brought me to tears and for awhile I was speechless. It brought to mind some of my thoughts I had as a young elder many years ago wishing that the Organization would be courageous enough and humble enough to make big changes not just in the administrative fields but also in scriptural misinterpretations to recognize humility is attractive as well as endearing to the brothers and sisters and to the general public. This article sets before them not only the way out but a hand up in proving themselves worthy of living and not being cut away. Our prayers collectively are with you brothers and we pray that the [Governing Body] pause and take note from the least of their brothers. God is with you in your writing, this was inspired writing. Love you friends hoping all is well and may the sons of God continue to increase!!!

[From a former Circuit Overseer] [Regarding Possibilities Introduction and Leadership By Example] Hello Friends, a wonderful message and a positive take on just what needs to be done in the Association. It’s a longshot but one worth examining so I've already called [headquarters] yesterday and spoke with brothers in the Writing Department to take a look at the information and pass it on to the [Governing Body]. I mentioned to one brother that it sounds almost prophetic and just because it didn't originate from [headquarters] doesn't meant it's not correct. And I suggested that if you remove your normal lens and exercise the mind of Christ, the picture is clearly not from a place of deception or anger, nor is it in anyway trying to bad mouth the [Governing Body]. It's more of a house cleaning that's long over due, especially the part on disfellowshipped individuals. It is a bold move but if we recall, Jesus was a bold and courageous Son of God always seeing the positive and best outcome for a person to hold on to their dignity, so bravo on making this statement. To all the sons who read your articles I say to you brothers and sisters "WAKE UP and let's take control of the Kingdom that belongs to us, the sons of God the Father. STOP living in fear. SPEAK UP for what is right and let justice prevail in this organization so that we may not be cut out but instead grow." Great job brothers excellent information.

[From a current Circuit Overseer] Good Morning Dear Friends, what a bold statement you present in your article "Leadership by Example." I must say without a doubt it's the most honest assessment and precise layout of how to turn this ship around and guide it into a new era I've ever seen or ever heard. I'm going to somehow get this information into the hands and mind of our Leadership and more importantly into the minds of the publishers in the congregation. Fantastic my wife keeps saying and I totally am blown away by its thoroughness, can't wait for the next phase you present. You friends have the true pulse on spiritual matters that's exciting to read and experience at this time in history so Congrats on a fine effort and may God be with you.

[From a former Elder] [Regarding Possibilities Introduction and Leadership By Example] Dear Brother & Sister, The possibilities are truly exhilarating. After reading the article and suggested letter to all congregations, it left me frozen in reflective thought of an often only dreamed of possibility. The mere thought that this proposal could become a reality for our brotherhood was powerfully energizing to me. You may remember that early on in your ministry I had written to you expressing some sense of jealousy that the small missions that our brother was serving with the true good news was having such a powerful impact in these peoples lives and how we were as an organization missing out on this fruitful ministry due to our fossilized message and procedures. I only hope this dream could become a reality. You must believe it otherwise you would not have put the time and energy to advance this proposal. May Christ Jesus and all of his assisting angelic ministers be with you.

[Regarding Possibilities Introduction and Leadership By Example] Dear Brothers, You wrote such a fine and encouraging letter to us all and the desire that the Governing Body will see the spirit of writing your loving suggestion of being humble. For this little nation can be that large nation that so many of us thought would be here by now as we worked so hard in our thoughts as to how the kingdom was to look. But we have to say as the Bible says in one of the minor Prophets ' You fooled me, You fooled me Jehovah'. Yes we have been fooled and yet we have such a structure that can be used in such a fine work for bring in 'the True Sons of God' in this time of service that will never be repeated in all eternity on Earth. I hope your letter moves the hearts of the Governing body like it has moved my heart. My prayers are with them. A closing point for us all, 'Our mistakes or failures are just for today but our Successes are for Eternity.' Love you all.

[Regarding Possibilities Introduction and Leadership By Example] We applaud these articles and proposed letter.  How kind and loving AnointedJW.org is to put these words as a suggestion for the Governing Body, they gave them the easy way out.  We think they deserve more harshness for their total disregard of Christ Jesus’ honored position of all authority. They virtually proclaimed themselves above him. But as our Master exemplified, we need to show mercy. Their humbly accepting this or any brothers in position would bring a true stabilizing and loving association for our misled brothers and sisters who have faithfully served God for decades, but have been controlled by men, proud men. What an exciting time it will be for all to begin a new fellowship. Change can take place, it has to for the sake of all and more importantly for Our Heavenly Father and his glorious Son. What joy the heavens would feel at the sight of spiritually conscious men and women being guided to truth and the real life

Dear Brothers, the last email [below] was very, very interesting that the brother shared. I liked the part about “Then he walked outside grabbed his shopping cart and left. Friends, your phrase ‘expect the unexpected’ kept ringing in my head loud and clear. When I can gather my thoughts on this profound moment, I'll write you, but in the meantime I'll just say ‘let the reader use discernment.’” It brings to mind 'unknown to them they have entertained angels.’ Take care.

[From a former District Overseer] Hello Bro and Sis, I had the most interesting conversation with a gentleman while eating lunch with some friends at a restaurant. This total stranger walks over to the group and says, looking me straight in my eyes, "Haven't you had enough time to do the will of the nations?" I said “Excuse me, have we met?” In turn he said "You have a good and kind heart and it would be more useful if you would 'be about the Father's business.'” Now right about now, my spirit began to bear witness that something special was taking place and not some wise guy trying to make a scene, because the man's tone was respectful and said to all at the table that he just had to say these things to this man. Then I asked “Is it possible to further this zesty conversation?” Then his final words to me were "Well if not today, in maybe another chance meeting or perhaps some time in the near forever." Then he walked outside grabbed his shopping cart and left. Friends, your phrase "expect the unexpected" kept ringing in my head loud and clear. When I can gather my thoughts on this profound moment, I'll write you, but in the meantime I'll just say "let the reader use discernment."

[Telephonic report from a former Circuit Overseer in Southern United States] I send my love and greetings to both of you. Instead of the Governing Body putting out an APB (all points bulletin) to hunt you brothers down to shame you, they should be trying to find you so that you can help usher in a more enlightened and righteous association, and so that more and more “friends” of the kingdom can stand as tall as the “sons” of the kingdom. In the congregations where there are more of these sons gathered, they have no judicial matters.  Sonship is spreading like gangrene and its worse, or I should say its better, than the wild fires in California, and I don’t think man can put out this fire! I have talked to brothers from the across the four corners of the globe and all of them have nothing but good experiences when folks come into a relationship that has been aided by your two websites [AnointedJW and TheChristExperiment]. I just wish that the Governing Body, the Writing Staff, all those at Bethel Headquarters and all those in positions of oversight, would humble themselves and say to you brothers “How can we be of service.” So with all the love and gratitude from all of us to you, we say to all, keep knocking, seeking and asking, for it is being opened.  Take care of yourselves and good health to you.

Dear Brothers, This striking thought just came into my mind.  After being baptized since 1991, things have become clearer as the days and months pass by while researching our existing beliefs, and more importantly, the core teaching of 1914.

Our Lord Jesus Christ said: "Concerning that day and hour, nobody knows, neither the angels of the heavens nor the Son, but only the Father. For just as the days of Noah were, so the presence of the Son of man will be." Matthew 24: 36-37 (Revised New World Translation or RNWT)

In Acts 1:6, 7: "So when they have assembled, they asked him: "Lord, are you restoring the kingdom to Israel at this time?" He said to them: "It does not belong to you to know the times or seasons that the Father has placed to his own jurisdiction."

The message is clear from both verses: Only the Father knows that day - the presence or coming of the Son of Man - whichever way you want to put it.

That being said, if the Governing Body or faithful slave has exactly identified 1914 as the start of Christ's ruling or his invisible ruling in heaven has begun, would that not be too presumptuous of them? Would that be beyond pure speculation - more than what the apostles had wished?

In effect, if the GB has identified this date which, according to Jesus Christ his Father only knows, then that makes the GB more knowledgeable than Jesus, the head of the congregation. In simple terms, if the Father only has the knowledge when that momentous day will come - whether Jesus' second coming or his presence - then who is the GB to determine it with sharp precision, much less teach it as an absolute truth?

[Regarding Question and Response 5/14/14] Brothers, I have heard of the Urantia Book, but I never took the time to look into it very much.  I agree with using sources from outside of the Watchtower Society.  In fact, I have been using parallel commentaries for much of my Bible reading this time around.  This has provided me with a much more well-rounded and balanced view of the Scriptures rather than fully relying on one source as I have in the past.

I may look into the Urantia Book at some point in the future, but for now I believe it is best that I continue to work on accumulating more Scriptural knowledge.  I am not yet at the point where I can so readily discern truth from error, and I would like to become more deeply rooted in Scriptural truth first.

May 14, 2014 

[From a former District Overseer] Excellent Day to you All, I wanted to comment on the recent emails and just how encouraging they've been to myself and my wife. Both adventures you’ve  taken on with the additional advanced site for more mature, free sons who know just who they are in Christ and how far loyalty should extend to any human no matter the position held. So we are proud to be a part of both sites. And with glowing respect for you friends,  do the association a Big favor and don't stop planting seeds of truth in the field that so needs it. Though stubborn, I believe many others are recognizing the voice of the Fine Shepherd. Anything is possible with God the Father!

[Regarding A Crisis in Nigeria]   Dear Friends, Thank you for drawing attention to this lamentable crisis situation. When I first became aware of this atrocity my heart went out to the children and their distraught parents. Watching the pain in the faces of the children’s parents on the PBS evening news still pains me. We who are part of the Witness community should offer our prayers in their behalf just as we would for Witnesses who suffer atrocities at the hands of oppressive governmental rulers. Your website has championed the ideal of the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man. This message was basic to the Good News of the Kingdom which Jesus taught. These children and their parents are our brothers and sisters. May the Most High who rules in the Kingdoms of men give attention to their plight. Kind regards.

**********
May 4, 2014

[Regarding A Crisis in Nigeria] The Holy Spirit has dispatched angels to these children, as well as others who go through more than they can bear, to show these innocent souls a glimpse of a better more enduring time that awaits them with open arms. An unprecedented love that will reduce the abuse and mistreatment to not even a faint memory.  Jesus feels as strongly about the youth today as he did when he walked the earth. Make no mistake in his disdain for the lack of moral character and spiritual growth on the part of any who hold these senseless ways of living, thinking and conducting ones self. It is truly an abomination.

We thoroughly agree with your answer to the latest email on ‘quibbling’. [Question and Response 5/2/14] Some people are just not getting it.  To the writer of the question…. What you read on this site is wonderful uplifting information and the new site is even more enlightening.  We see the writers only want to better mankind, and assist all in bringing together a united world where all can be true brothers, joining in our worship of our God and his Son.  What is better than that? So we, as readers also, are enthralled by the change this information has made to us personally, and we encourage the writer of the question, take to heart these words…

You will have peace in your spirit, you will not worry over minor things and you will feel free if you shake off the shackles of organizations who themselves ‘quibble over words’ and try to tie you down to an earthly existence.  You are a Son of God, he loves and cares for you beyond what you as a mere mortal can ever conceive.  So take his offer of sonship, search for the knowledge and seek for the truth of a life that is beyond this life.  It is worth every effort. The teachings of Jesus Christ our Master is want God wants us to follow and live, not men. It has been said, “The secret of a better civilization is bound up in the Master's teachings of the brotherhood of man, the good will of love and mutual trust.”

The article [Beyond A Friend] is fitting in line with the Watchtower study [February 15, 2014] and really makes the point that our relationship is based on Father and son and not just friends.  Jesus made this very clear and distinct when he was on the planet.  It will certainly strengthen the brothers who are wavering in their loyalty to men who deem us as only a friend of God.  Spot on article.

April 30, 2014

[From a former District Overseer] Congrats dear brother and sister on a wonderful service year of Christ Ministry of Authentic Teachings. The 2014 Update was so very encouraging and it's to be noted that many Memorial Suppers were unbelievably lacking in attendance this year but the amount of partakers from what information I've received went up in numbers. Now just how many, I'm not exactly sure, but I do believe it was significant. In speaking to my wife, I mentioned that at this rate can you imagine the changes that will have to come in the doctrines of the [Governing Body]. Let me also state that the New Site is beautiful and the first experiment should give all lovers of God and those who truly belong to Christ something to digest and to ponder. I appreciated the scriptural applications you cited throughout the article. Nice way to kick off the experiment. Count myself and my wife in 100%. God be with you friends!

Greetings to you from Australia and to all who read the information on this site. I have been following your site with interest and expectation, without getting my hopes up to high. But I see here the beginning of a reformation. Perhaps not that of the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses as a whole, but a reformation of some of its' previous members and existing members along with many others from other religious groups and interested ones who have come to think along the same lines. I do feel that all of us who want to be an approved son of God, should participate in the Lord's Evening meal, on memorial night. I feel that it is especially important that we all identify ourselves with the Christ, on this very important night by celebrating this night by partaking of the emblems, the bread and the wine. May God bless you all. From a fellow prospective son of God.

Fellow Brothers! Just wanted to wish you a pleasant remembrance night tomorrow. It was nice to hear to so many associated with [Jehovah’s Witnesses] will partake. I was somewhat surprised that they were so many. It will be good for those celebrating in private homes, they will have a good "platform" for creating something new, without starting a new sect. They can forget about the [Watchtower] leadership once and for all.
 
It́s the first time for me this one special night. I have only had communion for about 1.5 years in my Church so this will be special to me. Feels good. Will just squeeze some grapes (no alcohol) and a Little piece of unfermented bread. The actual meal will just be a bowl of vegetarian soup. 
Have a good one

[From a current Circuit Overseer] I wanted to state to you friends the power of your ministry in comparison to so many other anti or self-righteous groups or persons who claim to have truth spoken to them by God himself. And since I know you personally and have questioned you and looked into your eyes as you explained your beliefs in detail, I know the difference between what you say and defend and what so many others over the years have professed to be the word of God, many times just because they were of the 144,000. And with all that's in mine and my wife's spirit, it's so very clear what is taking place today, and that is that a modern day Jewish system of things is being played out for us today so that our generation would not be an ignorant generation and that the same choices still lay before each worshiper of God today just as clearly as it was over 2000 years ago. Dear friends, and yes brothers in Christ, as for me and my household we serve The Lord God and Father of all things, but we do it in Christ as heirs to the only true destiny for mankind. Although I'd like to have a private dinner at home, I think the greatest witness of my acceptance of the cup is to give the talk and partake for all to see and then throughout the year as often as we come together share my hope with various friends. Let's together friends and future brothers in Christ, let's is bring heaven down!!

April 11, 2014

[From an anonymous source] Many times the Memorial Supper is mentioned as a sad and gloomy night which would be true if mankind had been left without the indwelling spirit of the Father, the presence of the Spirit of Truth, the ever present Holy Spirit and all of your celestial family members who serve according to your needs. Even if not by such an ignominious death, it was inevitable that Jesus had to leave earth to attend to the Father’s business. He had been given full authority over a universe filled with life and beings and structures that he had to nurture and orchestrate, and, as he promised, to prepare the special abodes for those faith sons among you who survive the tribulation of the flesh and gain the victory over their animal nature.  So feel blessed and appreciative for these gifts when you come together, and rejoice that Jesus bestowed on all who choose life, the opportunity to one day be face to face with the Infinity of All – our Grand and Universal Father.

Hello again Brother & Sister in faith. I wanted to say how excited I am for Monday's Memorial Supper. This will be my first time to partake and it will be awesome. There were originally only 3 of us, and in the last few weeks, I am happy to say 30 have said they will be with us. We will be having a small dinner and then partake. I am sure it will be very uplifting. I will let you know after just how many showed up for sure. Your last few articles have been Stellar! And I am so looking forward to the new website! Keep up your good works and I will talk to you soon. Yours in Christian love.

April 10, 2014

We will become part of the body of Christ this year and we will be commemorating the Lord’s Supper at home with my son who’s 15 and raring to go, so thank you friends for your encouragement and for your candid way of explaining Jesus true message.

Dear brothers in union with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Thank you so much for the Open Letter to the Sons of the Kingdom. Last night I was praying to God to show me real purpose of being Christian. I feel my prayer has been answered. I look forward to the new website. I also look forward for this Memorial where more brothers and sisters wake up and realize that they are sons, not just friends, of God. Once again thank you for all the encouragement we get here to have a strong faith in Christ. I can feel now that we are one in union with Christ. I never felt this in more than 20 years as a Jehovah's Witness. May the undeserved kindness of our Lord Jesus be with you.

[From France] [Regarding Open Letter to the Sons of the Kingdom 2014] Thanks for the encouragement introduction that fell just in time.

April 6, 2014

I just read your Open Letter and I must say it is empowering as the opportunity that we have in being of service as Ambassadors Substituting for Christ. Here many of us are old and we have lived most of our lives for this time that is finally coming upon us now! What a Joy in being here and being a part of this once in an eternity opportunity like no other time in the past or in the future. It will be our arm band that we will carry throughout our eternity of loving service.

April 5, 2014

The article ‘Open Letter to the Sons of the Kingdom’ was beautiful, an illumination into the realities of what is to come for our planet.  We are very saddened about the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses as to what lengths they will go to in hindering Sonship with God, it rings of the Inquisition.  It seems they and their cohorts have demonstrated determination to completely work the ‘works of the flesh’ and not the Spirit of Truth.  Instead they follow the course of their father the Devil. May all enjoy and be courageous on this wonderful night of April 14th in memorial of our loving and merciful Lord Christ Jesus.  And we who follow this site express our love to all true believers in Christ. Go in peace.

[From a former Elder] AnointedJW, a fellow partaker of the Christ said that I should write you when the time was right to do so. So I write you now because I'm excited for this year’s Memorial more so than ever before because I, too, will be privately at my home hosting a celebration of the Life of Christ Jesus. And having recently stepped down from being the Watchtower Study Conductor for the past 12 years, I finally feel a sense of freedom I've not felt in many, many years. You see, I've followed the progress of you friends and all the faith stirring examples and so my heart could no longer serve two masters. I love the brothers and sisters, but the guilt I felt when conducting was making me physically sick to my stomach and I figured that I'm probably not alone in these emotions. And so I've been slowly freeing my mind and the hold the [Watchtower Bible & Tract Society] has had on me for some 43 years. And I will be honest, it's not easy but once you do it, you start seeing so many errors and falsehoods being taught as fact. My eyes are now wide open to what's important. I wish and will continue to pray for the [Governing Body], but as for me and my household, we serve the Father and follow the Christ. So blessings to all and let's fight for what is right, the teachings of Jesus Christ!!
