Have you ever been invited to someone’s home for dinner, but not eaten any of the food? Only sat there and watched them eat? What purpose would that serve? That is exactly what the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses expect you to do if you attend this year’s Memorial on Friday, April 3rd 2015.

As Easter approaches, Jehovah’s Witnesses will trot out the same excuses as to why it does not celebrate this important Christian holiday. This year is no different as the Society tackles the issue in the March 1, 2015 edition of the Watchtower magazine.
James Broughton gives his response to the magazine article…
I recently got given a copy of the Jehovah’s Witness book “What Does the Bible Really Teach?”
This is the book that JWs use to “study” with potential new members.
As I looked at it I found that at the rear of the book, there is an appendix that lists a number of different topics (mainly concerning some of the JWs more unique beliefs).
One of these topics asks “Who Is Michael the Archangel?” on page 218.
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.
But do we once again find the Jehovah’s Witnesses practising double standards?
