What are the Jehovah's Witnesses? - An inside story by Lloyd Evans
What are the Jehovah’s Witnesses? How do the Jehovah’s Witnesses function? How does it feel to grow up in the Jehovah’s Witnesses? Our guest on this episode is Lloyd Evans. Lloyd is the founder of JWsurvey.org a website dedicated to give voice to millions of Jehovah’s Witnesses around the world who would not normally have the opportunity to say what they really think about the Watch Tower Society. As an ex-Jehovah’s Witness himself, Lloyd shares his incredible story of growing up inside the organization and how he ultimately managed to leave the Jehovah’s Witnesses. Along the way he answers questions about how Jehovah’s Witnesses are organized and how they manage to keep strict control over their members. A fascinating inside look into the Jehovah’s Witnesses that is complemented by Lloyd’s recent book The Reluctant Apostate.
