What would you do if two Jehovahs Witnesses came to your house, and you considered yourself to be a Christian?
What would you do if you were unsure of your knowledge of the Bible and of the Witnesses teachings?
Carnival Mirrors answers the questions according to my experiences of several years. To turn the Witnesses away is wrong; to argue doctrine is wrong. Simply letting the Holy Spirit take control is right. He will act according to each persons background, and this book is according to my background. There will never be a time that I could approve the Watchtowers way. I have personally seen and heard how this organization can, without conscience, change doctrine around, quote writers out of context, manifest a carnal spirit toward others, substitute mens opinions for Gods Word, mislead its own people, and do other things that no Christian should do. I was never a Witness, just a churchgoer, but I searched the things I read and was told. And, that is how I found the truth. How easy it was. Everyone can see this deception, and Carnival Mirrors will show you how one person did it.
ElizabethMiddletown, NYAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This book taught me a lot!April 28, 2013ElizabethMiddletown, NYAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I learned a lot about the Jehovah Witnesses by reading this book and what their beliefs are. I always knew that their fundamental belief in Christ was different from mine but I didn't realize that they actually have different wording in their version of the Bible and that they interpret words that are the same differently. I study the Bible already but upon reading this book I realized the importance of knowing the Bible intimately and thoroughly so as to be able to compare what others say about faith and the will of God. Pat taught me to check everything against the Word of God. She explained how she did it when confronted with what seemed to be true but was different from what she thought & had been taught. She stressed the importance of asking questions so that what is presented is clarified completely so as to increase discernment. This book was very informative and a teaching aide also on how to examine what is presented and determine the truth by studying the Bible. I highly recommend it to anyone who has been confronted by the Jehovah Witness and didn't know what to say!

Tell us a little about yourself. have been a Christian for 50 years; taught Bible study, Sunday school; attended Bible college w/majors in religion and foreign language; saw a great need for knowledge of the dangers of false teachings and how they affect the Church
What was your motivation behind this project? When I told my mother I wished she wouldn't have the Jehovah's Witnesses in the house, she said, "Well, they think they have the truth and are willing to tell you. If you have the truth, shouldn't you be telling them? (silence on my part) WELL?!!"
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? the easy way of determining if a teaching is false and the knowledge of actual occurrences whereby readers can see how dishonest the Watchtower has been in reporting facts, real or manufactured, as truth
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I collected each occurrence as it happened. When all was put together, I could easily see that the Watchtower organization could not be trusted to explain the Bible to anyone. I know I can never be a Jehovah's Witness.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Oswald Chambers, A.T. Robertson, "The Daily Bread" devotional
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: church background is conservative holiness, accept the Bible as the only source of doctrine, can accept the fact that different persons may have different interpretations of Scripture but there should be, as the saying goes, Unity in the essentials, Liberty in the non-essentials, and Charity in everything.
