Hi! My name is Franco. I would like to tell you how, after serving for 27 years, I disassociated myself from the Jehovah’s witnesses organization and how I’ve found Christ: the Way, the Truth and the Life. When I was about 7 years old, my grandma used to talk to me about Jesus very often, and I got very close to God because of her. I began to go to church, I took part to the Mass serving as altar boy. I confessed very often, because I was scared of the hell and during a confession, the priest wanted to know too many things, and truth be told, I really disliked it. I was 12 back then. Despite everything, I kept going to church because of a girl I liked very much. At the age of 16, I packed and moved up north; I used to work as a bricklayer. One day I got ill. I believed in God; I hadn’tforgotHim. I used to prayevery night before sleeping. When I was 20, I got engaged to my wife; we got married 2 years later and we had our first child in 1986. In that period, I wondered: “Among all these religions, which is the right one?”. Must say, I’d rejected Catholicism, because I had realized they taught something completely different from what the Bible says. Full of doubts, I prayed God every night, asking Him to help me to get to the truth. I went to Calabria for Christmas, and one day two Jehovah’s witnesses walked very close to my house, but strangely, they didn’t stop to talk to me. By the time I was back at my place, I met a family of Jehovah’s witnesses and I asked them to find a Bible for me. They gave me the Bible, and a leaflet named “The truth that leads to eternal life” with it. This flier said hell didn’t exist and I liked that. I began to spend time with them and I went to their meetings too. Six months later, I walked down the streets to bring door to door Jehovah’s message to the people. I firmly believed in what I was doing. I still didn’t know Bible had been manipulated! A while later, I noticed their behavior wasn’t biblical at all and I had lots of concerns. I visited the official website of the Jehovah’s witnesses (jw.org), but I couldn’t find answers to my whys. Visiting the forbidden websites took all the courage I had; but to my great surprise, I found in there all the answers I was looking for. I even found images showing and clarifying the subliminal messages appearing on those little books and leaflets. I told everything to the director; finally, my wife and I wrote a disassociation letter. I bought different versions of the Bible and I began making some researches in order to find out who Jesus really was. I sought Him, and He revealed Himself to me. God showed me that He Himself had allow those 27 years of my life to happen, in order to prepare me to be helpful for the people who are also trapped in these false religions. I am a believernow. I let God’s Holy Spirit take the lead of my life. My parents and siblings don’t want to have anything to do with me. All my friends abandoned me, but the Lord Jesus has given me a new family in Christ, in reward. You can be savedonlythroughJesus’ sacrifice. He died to save you. He’s the Way, the Truth and the Life. Believe in Him and be saved!
