Jehovah’s Witness Cult Teen Suffers Mother’s Wrath
A 16 year old teen reminds us of the alarming reality of Jehovah’s Witness child abuse. Ridden with anxiety, he has been reminded by his cult parent that his birth wasn’t wanted. He wants to go to college. He apparently wants to get away from his mother, his religion… and even God.
Jehovah’s Witness Child Abuse: Not Just Physical
As a child, imagine the boy learning of the terrors he is faced with if he steps out of line from his church’s teachings. The Jehovah’s Witness cult teaches that anyone who goes against the Watchtower beliefs will not only die a gruesome death of being burned with fire, but previous to that, the victim knows they’ll lose their entire family if they ever leave.
The Jehovah’s Witness child may grow up believing:
- If I question, I will die.
- If this is the “truth” and I don’t believe it, God will kill me in fiery destruction.
- There are no other Christian religions that are right. They all lie.
- Going to another church means I may get possessed by the devil.
- The outside “world”, should I choose to experience it, will cause me to lose my parents and my entire family.
- God is destructive and angry, and a murderer.
- God is hateful.
- My family loves me conditionally.
- God loves me conditionally.
- I may become possessed by satan at any time.
Teen Turns to Atheism
The teen in this scenario has decided he has lost his faith, and at the young age of only 16 years old, he requires medication due to extreme anxiety, and possible panic attacks. He makes a decision that he no longer believes in God. The Watchtower’s portrayal of who God is has pushed the boy to make a choice that God must not be real at all.
He tells his Jehovah’s Witness mother, who lashes out venom at him in a manner which reminds one of a crazed lunatic. While we don’t know the family circumstances, it is clear that the father is meek and refuses to exercise headship over his abusive wife. She verbally assassinates the son, continually ignoring her husband’s wishes and requests to stop her tyrade. To no avail, the husband has no control over her as her evil voice shreaks through one’s ears.
Jehovah’s Witness child abuse: Teen is demanded to remain silent by father as mother’s abuse gets out of control
- The mother laughs in an evil and sadistic manner, when she reminds the teen he will lose his entire family, including his sisters.
- The mother ignores her husband’s requests.
- The mother tells the teen he has “mental issues”. (A JW label for anyone who leaves Jehovah’s Witnesses)
- The mother threatens her husband she will leave if the son is given time to change his mind.
- The mother sounds hateful, and vengeful.
- The mother punishes the boy with reminders that she could’ve had an abortion, (which JWs reject).
- The mother threatens she will not clothe him or help him buy shoes.
- The father allows the mental, emotional, and psychological abuse to continue, denoting fear of his wife.
- The father stifles the son, warning him to stay silent as the mother continues to abuse him like a deranged animal.
How Did it Start?
These are the dangers of a cultic type of family dynamic. The child may seek freedom or outside love. The child may panic at the fears instilled within him or her by the religion. He or she may wish to run away in order to escape. This may affect the child’s perception and cause him to think that he no longer believes in God, but is now an atheist. In the child’s mind, it is quite possible that having no faith at all in God, is better than having the horrendous fear that goes along with what the Jehovah’s Witnesses instill in the children. To the teen, it is easier to separate from God and say he doesn’t exist, than to wait until he is older to make such a weighty decision. There is, in his mind, more pleasure in leaving the idea of God, than continuing to be trapped in what he’s been told is the “truth“.
Horrifying images shown in Watchtower magazines burn the child’s mind for years. He will do just about anything to be free from it, as he continues to fight his anxiety, which is made apparent in the recording.
The Raw Truth
The teen faces the beast of his mother’s wrath, for daring to suggest that the Jehovah’s Witnesses are not the “truth“. This unfortunately, is even more common in the JW families as children begin to have a voice and express their doubts. The mother all but admits that she has beaten her son in the past, as she references many times in which he has brought up “Child Protective Services”. It is apparent this is not the first time she has laid hands on him, or verbally abused him.
Is it no wonder why this child, who suffers affiliation with a cult, wants nothing more than to be freed from his fears and his abusers? As a victim of Jehovah’s Witness child abuse, he will likely suffer for many years to come. He experiences abuse mentally, psychologically, and even physically, as suggested in the recording. He is also abused spiritually through the pages of the Watchtower, which teach that he will die if he doesn’t obey.
Many believe firmly that the Jehovah’s Witness child abuse is prompted by the Watchtower Society. The images provided to small children are gruesome and graphic, causing many little ones to have terrifying nightmares of destruction and doom. The Watchtower has painted God to be something that He is not, taking the bible verses out of context in order to lock in their members through horrendous fear. This has caused many to refuse to further discuss God, as they believe that atheism is the next best thing. We do not speak of a grown adult, but mere teen boy.

Is this Who God really is?
On the contrary, there is good news for those who are victims of a cult. God does not operate in the manner suggested by Jehovah’s Witnesses. Jesus Christ gave the final commandment to love God and love thy neighbor. Salvation itself, as explained in scripture, is entirely different than that of Watchtower teachings. A reading of the New Testament in it’s entirety, with full focus on the teachings of Jesus’ sacrifice and atonement, makes clear to true Christians that there is hope for those who have been misguided by false religion. A doomsday focus is not at all what the New Testament encourages. In fact, it is quite the opposite.
