This podcast starts out reading a list of individuals and the podcaster then asks the pointed question: so now what do all of these people have in common? That's right they are celebrity Jehovah's Witnesses. And now we have Serena Williams!
For many years people ask the question is Serena Williams one of Jehovah's Witnesses because at the end of each game she would often make the statement "I have to thank Jehovah God", so people would ask the question, is she one of Jehovah's Witnesses? And today, we have the answer. She's a dedicated baptized Jehovah's Witness.
You know there are people who will often look and say I can't believe that she became a Jehovah's Witness. Well, it's important to keep in mind what it's like to be raised as one of Jehovah's Witnesses. All your life you're told whenever you have a problem, whenever things are going bad in your life, whenever you get yourself together, return to Jehovah. And today, Serena Williams has retired from her career. She's married she has a child, and it often causes people to reflect differently on their lives.
One of the things that we know that she probably didn't do, is take the time to do the research that we encourage everybody to do. We have found that many people leave the Jehovah’s Witness organization and will be gone for years and sometimes decades. They fail to take the time to ask critical thinking questions about what they learned about this religion.
Instead, they simply come right back to the religion without asking questions without doing their own personal research. As a result, there are so many things that they fail to understand about the religion that impacted their life in every aspect of it. You know there’s something interesting that happens for people who are celebrity Jehovah’s Witnesses things that a regular Jehovah's Witness if they were to do would get them in a lot of trouble well as a celebrity witness is often overlooked.
