WATCHTOWER INTERVIEW: AUSTRALIAN CHRISTIAN TO BE FILMED IN HIS OWN HOUSE Watchtower is planning to film an interview with a young Australian Christian following his appearance in the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s (ABC) televised video for his examination position.
Watchtower said it would have the interview with Christoph Schreiber, who is scheduled to appear in the Channel 9 documentary Watchtower: The Witness, on Thursday.
The footage will be released by the Watchtower Foundation, a charity run by the Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Mr Schreib has not yet revealed his role in the Watch Tower’s leadership.
Watch Tower Foundation chairman Peter Ouellet told Australian broadcaster Channel Nine he was “not surprised” by the announcement.
He said it was a great opportunity for Christoph to be interviewed.
“He’s a Christian, a man of God who has a lot of wisdom, he has a strong conscience, he’s a humble and kind and loving person, and he’s really looking forward to being interviewed,” he said.
“The interview is a really good opportunity for him to show what he’s got to offer, what he believes in and how he sees the world.”
Mr Ouelle said the charity was excited to be working with Mr Schraiber.
WatchTower’s new video will focus on the organisation’s “commitment to truth and righteousness”, and “reaffirming the truthfulness of our teachings and practices”.
Watchtower has released a number of videos in recent years including the one that has sparked the most controversy.
In December 2016, the organisation filmed a Christian leader from Queensland explaining that the Bible was “based on lies”.
Watch Tower said it “would like to thank the ABC for their generosity in allowing us to make the video available to the public”.
The Jehovah’s Witness has previously faced criticism for its “truth” programmes.
The organisation has been criticised for its use of footage from Australia’s royal commission into the death of a woman who died in a Jehovah’s witness compound in Wollongong in 2014.
WatchDogs videos in the past have featured scenes of the organisation allegedly killing animals and then eating them.
The ABC has since launched a special investigation into the organisation.
