Interview with Korey Coleman:
I've wanted to make this video for years. Here I discuss my religious past, and how members of the religion I was raised in attempted to keep me from pursuing my goals. I hope that this video can prove inspirational for other people who have felt trapped in life. Thank you for watching.

  • Thank you all so much. The outreach since the interview went up has been overwhelming and has helped me heal. I can’t tell you how much it means to me that you’ve understood. I was anxious about discussing these things, but I’m so happy to learn that many ex-JWs watch the channel, and I truly hope this video reminds you that you’re not alone. Anyone out there afraid to come out about something, I see you. I support you. Thanks so much everyone.

    • I was dfed at 15 (am now 33) and have watched a number of celebrities say they grew up JW and basically call it 'pretty good'. Thank you so much for being honest about where you're from and telling the truth about what it's like. Bless you.

  • Alright. I can definitely understand why everyone in the comments section believes witnesses to be a cult, especially if you have had a negative experience with them. I myself have seen members behave in a cult-like manner. However I will say that as a Whole Witnesses are far from a cult. I've seen it myself, I've studied with them in the past and yet the vast majority do their best to practice what they learn. Yes, I know many of you have had negative experiences with them, I know for a fact there are people with a toxic mentality and super hardcore beliefs with what they believe which seems to be like a cult. But they are very far from being one. I mean its very disappointing to see so many people to have gone through horrible situations with certain members/toxic congregations, but even they aren't genuine witnesses. That's why so many people leave. And I get it, it makes sense. But to say they're all a cult, that's far from true.

  • First time commenting on your videos. I saw some of them, and liked your hindsights and passion. Now i discovered your powerful testimony. I hope that some of the people that you loved, some of your friends, some of your family understood your point. And above all that they will never give up on you. You have the courage to be yourself and pursue your dreams, whatever the cost. You believe in what you are doing, you're willing to share cinema magic, and it's powerful messages. It's not harming anybody. Rather the contrary. Cinema is needed for humanity to grow. Like it was needed for cavemen to draw about what they saw. Thanks you Chris :)

  • I immediatly had to watch the Video of Chris reviewing his own Childhood Movie... in there, his Father had a „Role“ as a Sheriff without a Uniform. It‘s funny how clear this came to my mind because back then I thought how cool it was for him to support his Sons Ambitions and even participating in front of the Camera! I mean, everyone should have such a cool Dad, right?!? HAH! And now that I know all that about him and being aware how he‘ll probably never talk to this Guy again it is heartbreaking to look back on this Video. Either this Guy changed a LOT since then or he was never supportive to begin with. It makes no matter! He‘s just another in a shere endless line of normal People brainwashed to do unbelieviable harmful things in the supposed name of some made up Diety... for the Glory and the power and the financial gain of some few benefictors - in this case those „elders“. And all that in the 21st Century... how completely absurd! May those superstitions die out with the People who hold them and never return!

  • I recently left, literally a month ago. It had been the craziest most stressful few weeks ever. My mother cut off my brother years ago when he left and told me not to speak to him but I couldn’t. Me and my brother grew up best friends. So I left. I’ve gotten non stop calls, text messages telling me I have a duty, I don’t have a choice. I’ve changed my number 3 times in the past week. A nightmare.

    • Hang in there. I dont know your particular situation or what your support system is like but hang in there. We (my husband and 2 kids) left a year ago and we have had ppl thst have known me my whole life have shunned me . But I have the family that I created and that was all I needed. Ita hard. Its been an emotional roller coaster but everytime I saw something about the witnesses it made me feel better about my decision. I didny get out unscathed by no means I have a lot of ptsd. I have social anxiety. I dont know how to really function in the real world. But I have been able to reconnect with some "worldly" friends that have been nothing been accepting of me while I was distance and judgmental of them. It does get better. They want you to crumble without them and their conditional love. They don't want you to stand on your own or realize your own strengths. You are strong. You left a dire situation. Embrace the ones that love you. You aren't alone. Hang in there.

  • I'm a Christian and Trump supporter. Thank you for being so honest with your audience. You owe us nothing but you gave us a very personal part of you. I teach my kids that as long as you are a good and decent person to others that is all that matters (are they nice to you, do you have fun with them, do they respect others, do they help you to grow...). It is not up to us to judge. So thank you and keep up the fantastic reviews because yours are spot on!

  • wow. thank you for sharing. I was raised in the southern baptist environment and although they don’t have official terms and methods (disfellowship, marking, etc.), they do the exact same things to their youth. my dad was/is a minister and as I started to ‘act out’ and question the faith, I had many closed-door meetings with leaders, was also spoken out against publicly in very nebulous-yet-specific ways, and felt like I was constantly watched. my school was also strict christian so I was at church 3x a week and a christian school 5x a week. I slowly sank into a deep depression that was bordering on suicidal. I stayed up most nights so that I could have time to myself and my own thoughts and slept through classes and church sermons as best I could. eventually I just started skipping out on showing up and things started to spiral fast. I was ostracized and kept on close watch. when I finally made it to graduation, I had been coaxed by my parents to attend a christian college, attended for probably two months and knew if I stayed in that environment 4 more years I would lose my shit. I dropped out, had no community or social network to fall back on as they had all been inside the church so I just hit the road and started hitchhiking and sleeping outside. it was hard but it was freedom. so much of what you said touched me, and it’s honestly disturbing how much is similar between the two congregations. thank you for sharing, please know there is a huge group of people who have walked away from oppressive religions and cults and we all have your back. I meet people on a monthly basis who walked away from similar upbringings. in fact, probably the most I met were kids my age on the road when I was hitchhiking. so many of us had just had enough and left. thanks for being real, thanks for following your dream without compromise, and thank you for sharing what weighed heavy on your heart. P.S. I have good days and bad days but I can always look back on the first 18 years of my life and know what I came from and had the courage to walk away from. the air is crisp outside those walls.

Most people in cults are completely content after they have been sufficiently brainwashed. Most of thr people in Jonestown didn't think they were in a cult even as they drank the Coolaid. Most of the Branch Davidians in Waco didn't think they were in a cult until after they were rescued either. I hope you can be saved from the terrible cult. 🙏

  • I had a friend in high school who was a Jehova’s Witness. One day he confessed to me that he thought he was gay, but there was nothing he could do about it. I asked why he would want to do anything about it, and that’s when he told me everything about being a Jehova’s Witness. How if he were to come out, he would be essentially kicked out and shunned by his entire family, not to even mention the hatred he would receive from his friends. Or how his cousin had died because his parents had refused a vital blood transfusion that would’ve saved his life. I think any religion that shuns and exiles people under threat of ‘armageddon’ is not a religion, but a full on cult. And it’s disgusting that a parent would rather let their own child die than go against their beliefs. My friend is still pretending to be straight all these years on, and I’m not even allowed to speak to him regularly. I really do hope that your story might inspire others to leave ASAP.

  • Exactly everything you described! My sister was disfellowshipped after almost 10 years of leaving the religion by an elder who was obssesed with her. After they disfellowshipped her, he told my dad that he was wrong and that she shouldnt been disfellowshipped. I lost all my friends when i left the religion because i was gay, and then i realized there`s no true friendship inside the religion, because everything is conditioned to being part or not of the religion. I now have a happy life and wouldn`t change a thing, but it`s difficult to remove the JW chip inside your head which makes you see EVERYTHING fom that point of view...

  • I know this is a late comment. But I grew up in a much smaller, but much more extreme. We were not allowed to even watch TV, listen to ANY music beyond what was made at the church. Not allowed to associate or have ANY friends or even associate with FAMILY that were not in the church. We had a very specific dress code, the dress code of extreme Pentacostals. I too, nearly committed suicide. My younger brother attempted suicide as well. My older brother DID commit suicide. Others that left the church ended up in mental wards and/or committed suicide. Talking about being behind.... you really, really are. It takes YEARS to get to where you can even feel comfortable in social settings, much less socially succeed. There was a LOT of sexual abuse, rape and other things going on in my church as well as criminal money laundering and tax evasion. Hearing you speak about this.... yeah. I feel ya bruh. Frfr

It's sad that so many parents disown their kids like this - you'd think by now there'd be some way to prove that their beliefs are delusional/harmful. I just hope over time it dies out. I hope your parents change their minds as they grow older.

I wanted to let you know that you’ve been a big part of my life growing up, and you helped me realize that I love movies too. I’m currently a cinema studies major at UTK right now actually. But I also want you to know that you made the right decision by making this video. It hurts to hear that you won’t be able to talk to your father ever again, and that must be devastating to you, but making this video was the right thing to do. People need to hear this. People need to know that they are not alone in their struggles. I’m incredibly proud of you for taking this step in your life. You already had my respect when it comes to your movie reviews, but you have also earned my respect in regards to how you value and understand people and their needs. I love you, and I wish the best for you and your wife.

  • Y'all I'm also currently a baptized JW ,and I was manipulated to getting baptized by mom at a very young age ,honestly I feel like she done it to "show off" to the congregation...I'm currently 18 years and I have lost faith and I'm in disbelief of this religion ..I have taken upon the Buddhist teachings behind my parents and the churches back because I'm afraid I won't have a house to live in anymore and it's sad because I can't live my life to the full ,every time a JW follows me on Instagram I have to block them because I'm afraid it'll turn back to my family ....this year I'm supposed to be going to Varsity and study ,even that has been a struggle because I want to pursue a career in filmmaking as well ,but my mom said it was a corrupt industry, instead she said I should do teaching so I can focus on the's been like this my whole life ,my life has just been a manipulation from my mom and this religion, I once told her I want to do Fashion Design and she said it's a Gay community, I said I want to be an Interior Designer, she also said it's a Gay community...anytime I try to do what I love and I'm passionate about she always uses the religion as an excuse and I can't do anything because I live under her roof and she pays my at this point I'm just looking for a way to escape..because I feel so confined and unhappy Thank You for sharing yo!

  • This subject can really get on my nerves at times, especially as someone like myself who's familiar with even worse communities than these "jehovah's witnesses"( mainly extreme orthodox jewish groups, such as "haredim" and the hasidic movement, which are honestly considerably more oppressive, extreme, conservative and demanding than anything you mentioned here...). Who would want to believe/follow a god that encourages child abuse and disfellowship of their very own children? How much of an out-of-touch, sick, piece of shit one has to be? Why is this subject completely ignored like religion is some sort of "taboo"? Thank you ,chris, for your inspiring courage to be open about this and share your story.

  • Today I learned that to be raised or indoctrinated in a cult may rob you of your life but at least you'll have plenty of content for an KGworld Channel.

  • You and repzion need to collaborate on a video like this. He’s another KGworldr who, like you, came from a very religiously abusive background. If I recall correctly his wasn’t jehova but the ideals are roughly the same. I think a lot of people out there could really use your voices to know it’s not just them that experienced it and that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

  • Jehovah is the Creator of humans. The thoughts of Jehovah and humans are different. We must follow the will of [Jehovah] who will give us the reward of eternal life. John 17:3 Mt 24:14 Revelation 22:12-15 He gave us a law to keep according to human will. Nothing is free, spiritual or physical.

    • @FullMetal Atheist I'm a Korean and there are amazing and mysterious videos that Korean scientists testify to the Bible with science, but you won't understand because it's a Korean video, but maybe there are videos in the US where scientists testify the Bible with science. If you want, I will send you a link to one of several videos. Even if you don't understand Korean, you can see amazing pictures in the video.

    • @땅하늘 Do you have one exampel of a statement from the bible that was way ahead of its time and is scientific correct, and could not be otherwise explained?
