FORMER Jehovah’s Witness and now born again Christian Jason Thickpenny tells people what it is like to celebrate Christmas since leaving the Watchtower Society.
Jason who was a Jehovah’s Witness for 23 years now seeks to lead Jehovah’s Witnesses out of the Society and works with apologetics ministry UK Partnerships for Christ.

We would like to wish all our visitors a happy and blessed Christmas.
We think especially of those who are maybe celebrating their first Christmas since leaving the yoke of the Watch Tower Society. If that is you, please let us know.
We also think of those who are still trapped inside the Watch Tower and pray that the Lord will open their eyes to his glorious Grace.

Jehovah’s Witnesses knocking on your door will sooner or later warn you of the pagan origins of Christmas and Easter and how Christians should never take part in celebrations.
