Jehovah's Witnesses are an officially recognised international religious organisation preaching the 'Good News of God's kingdom' in 236 lands around the Earth.

Despite what Larry says, there are close to 8 million active Jehovah's Witnesses who will completely disagree with Larry because they have looked closely at scriptural evidence for themselves and agree with what the Bible teaches. Many removing themselves from trinitarian organisations.

There are a further 11 to 12 million interested ones many of whom are enjoying an indepth Bible study.

Jehovah's Witnesses are not a cult. They do not follow any imperfect human as their leader, but recognise Christ as their redeemer and Jehovah (YHWH) as AlmightyGod and Creator.

David8318: you comment about Jesus and temptation is interesting, but I always took it to mean that Satan TRIED to tempt Jesus.
The original (Greek) uses 'into temptation' (lead us not...) but temptation is also used for UNSUCCESFUL temptation, like what Satan tried on Jesus

I do not take the two to be the same

Col 1:15-19 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all [things] he might have the preeminence. For it pleased [the Father] that in him should all fulness dwell,
Creator? Col 1:16 says Jesus Christ, the Word. You just want to use 1:15 but avoid the rest? Your bible says 'all other', which still doesn't make God alone the Creator.
---micha9344 on 6/27/10


David you sure are confused I wrote 'Jesus had to be man to die...' but you say I teach that AlmightyGod died. Indeed this is false.

Your main problem is that you belong to a cult which dictates what you believe. You are taught to believe that the Holy Spirit is only a force. Therefore cutting yourself off from the spiritual discernment fellowship with the person of the Holy Spirit brings. You attempt to batter your way to Biblical understanding with limited, falible human reasoning. Doesn't work.

How can Jesus be the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, the Alpha and the Omega, and the Son of God, and not be God Almighty?

JWs can't to support their belief system. (I do not necessarily believe in Scripture only, but only if it magnifies scripture.)

//We prayed together and they departed.
Perhaps maybe you can answer them.// char on 6/27/10

When I "studied" (argued) with two JWs a few years ago over the course of a month or two, I would invite them in and would say, "God bless you" not knowing 2Jn 1:9-11. Cut me to the quick.

David,
Many believe earnestly that what they believe is bibical truth.
How beautiful is that love we all have for God.

Let's look at the scriptures:
Together with Jm 1, Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: God can not be tempted, with evil,neither tempteth any man.
In Is9:6
The childs' name will be called God (El) which is defined as God the Ominipotent.
Father which is Ab-defined as within the Hebraic letters-Father which is the A and son which is the b and in agreement with the rest of the context-mighty God,everlasting Father.
Yes-Jesus is the Son of God,1Cor:1:15,1Cor15:45Jn1:34
And the scripture also reads Is9:6,Mat1 He is called Immanuel-God with us.
and in Jn1 The Word became flesh.
---char on 6/28/10


Jesus is Immanuel-God with us and the Word of God-in flesh.Matt 1:23
Behold a virgin shall be with child,shall bring forth a Son,they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted,God with us.
agree with Is 9:6
For unto us a Child is born,unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder,and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The Mighty GOD,The everlasting Father,The Prince of Peace.

James 1-God can not be tempted,with evil,neither,temptepth any man.
God is not capable of temptation-yet the devil tries-the Word.Mat4:1
Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
The devil tries to tempt Jesus-But Jesus is the Word-in Flesh-not possible.
---char on 6/28/10


Jesus is not and angel, Jesus is the Creator who created the angels.

David I wrote "Jesus had to be fully God to be our Saviour, to forgive all the sins..." You ask why?

Joel 2:32 "everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

Romans 10:9,10 says Jesus is Lord the same Lord for Jew and Gentile. Verse 13 says "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord (Jesus) will be saved."

Joel 2:32 says Jehovah is our Saviour. Paul Says the Lord Jesus is our Saviour-therefore the same Almighty God.

In Joel 2:32 the JW NWT translates 'Lord' as Jehovah and in the NT 'Kurios' as Jehovah. See Romans 14:8 NWT where the Greek root word 'Kurios' is 3 times rendered Jehovah, then inconsistently rendered 'Lord' when it applies to Jesus!

Why?
---Warwick on 6/28/10




Leon and Erik are correct, The Watchtower IS a cult. A cult not is not defined as errant teaching but messianic leaders where the renewing of the mind is man and works-based not spirit-based, marked by bondage and not freedom, and finally the siege mentality and obsession with enemies of the faith-including family members.

Scott,

Can you stick with the scripture?
It is best, God confirms His Word.

Trinitarians contradict the Bible when it teaches God is eternal.

Warwick says for example (6/27/10)- 'Jesus had to be man to die... Jesus is the only Creator and Saviour therefore He is Almighty God'. Warwick and other trinitarians teach AlmightyGod died. This is FALSE. AlmightyGod is eternal and cannot die. Jesus is thus not AlmightyGod, but "the Son of God" (Jo.1:34) who became flesh to die for us.

Warwick agrees Jesus was tempted. So Jesus cannot be God because James 1:13 says 'God cannot be tempted'. Again Warwick and trinitarianism contradict the scriptures, and the teachings of Paul and James.

What I can't comprehend is why people will believe a blatantly contradictory doctrine such as the trinity.
---David8318 on 6/27/10


Why does Jesus have to be 'fully God to be our Saviour'? (Warwick 6/27/10)

This again is false trinitarianism and unscriptural. Jesus had to be fully man, not fully God to be our Saviour.

It was the man Adam who sinned in Eden. Adam was fully man, not 'fully God'. Jesus corresponds exactly to the 'first Adam' in that Jesus was 'fully man'. The 'last Adam' has undone the damage caused by the 'first Adam'. (1 Cor.15:45)

It was Adam who sinned in Eden, not God. To correspond to the 'first Adam', mankinds saviour only had to be a perfect man, nothing more, nothing less. That's divine law. 'Eye for an eye, tooth for tooth'.

Jesus, the 'last Adam', was that man- fully man, nothing more, nothing less.
---David8318 on 6/27/10


Char, I am not offended but I am zealous for defending what I believe to be Biblical truth. And that is AlmightyGod did not become Jesus, and Jesus was/is not AlmightyGod. Jehovah and Jesus are 2 separate individuals.

Jehovah is the Supreme Sovereign Lord and Creator of all things, and Jesus is His Son, the 'Son of God' (John 1:34), the first born of creation (Col 1:15) who Jehovah sent as a man to ransom and rescue us from the sin of Adam. (1 Cor.15:45)

I would be happy to attempt to answer any question(s) you wish to pose.
---David8318 on 6/27/10


Francis in Acts 11 God showed Peter a sheet upon which were "four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, reptiles, and birds of the air", God told Peter "Get up, Peter. Kill and eat." Peter replied "Surely not, Lord! Nothing impure or unclean has ever entered my mouth." God replied "Do not call anything impure that God has made clean." It is clear these creatures were once forbidden for food, but now "made clean." The old dietry rules are finished.

Likewise Peter was now able to go and mix with Gentiles, once forbidden.

The 1 Timothy quotes you gave are in line with the above.

You have no need to eat pork but it is wrong of you to misuse Scripture to condemn others.

The reference to Michael in Revelations seems to be a editing error but not by John.There is Michael- the person best known as Jesus or Joshua and there is the Archangel of Michael-the angel who is in authority of,like a general, a grand multitude,like an army or like 12 legions of angels.
Daniel describes Michael as a prince and so does Paul describe Jesus as a prince.
The shoe fits.
Jesus was given/honored with this title of prince after as Jesus said,the "prince of this world is cast down"-or removed from office and duties.Therefore no prince of spirit status currently held this position on earth so Jesus temporarily was honored with the new prince title until later filled.

I use to study the bible with the Jehovah's witnesses but I donot agree with them when they say that Michael the archangel is Jesus. Jesus is God and not an angel. Jesus is above angels. How can he be an angel when the bible says that he is the son of God. I donot understand why Jehovah's Witnesses believe that he is Michael the archangel. This is the main reason why I stopped studying the bible with the Witnesses.
---debra7473 on 6/27/10


How is this change in the Jehovah witnness teaching to get them to believe Michael the arch angel is the child who name shall be GOD and Mighty Father?
Is 9:6
For unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given:and the government shall be upon His sholder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller,The mighty Prince of peace.

The Mighty GOD-Hebrew Word used is EL'- verified and confirmed within the context- Father-El the ominipotence.
How is it that He is the Word that became flesh stated in Jn1:1?How is it He is the child who name shall be call-Immanuel,interpeted for us as God with us?and How is it that when yeshua had the chance- didn't say to Thomas"okay,your right,I'm really Michael"---?
---char on 6/27/10


To my understanding the Word of God is truth and can not lie. Thomas,already did not believe. If the teaching that yeshua resurrected was actually michael is true-then-wouldn't Jesus Christ who is truth be lying to Thomas in order to convince him that He was actually Jesus Christ resurrected from the dead?

Michael- The historical view of other churches 1.

"The earlier Protestant scholars usually identified Michael with the pre-incarnate Christ, finding support for their view, not only in the juxtaposition of the child and the archangel in Rev 12, but also in the attributes ascribed to him in Dnl [Daniel}." The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, John A. Lees, Vol. 3, 1930, page 2048.

"I embrace the opinion of those who refer this to the person of Christ, because it suits the subject best to represent him as standing forward for the defense of his elect people." John Calvins Commentaries On The Book of Daniel: Translated by T. Myers, Baker Book House, Vol. 2, 1979, page 369

Michael- The historical view of other churches 2.

"There seems good reason for regarding Michael as the Messiah. Such was the opinion of the best among the ancient Jews. With this all the Bible representations of Michael agree. He appears as the Great Prince who standeth for Israel (Dan. xii. 1), and he is called the Prince of Israel (Dan. x. 21)". A Cyclopedia Of Biblical Literature: William L. Alexander, editor, Edinburgh, A. & C. Black, Vol. 3, 1886, page 158.

"By the personage, in the Apocalypse, many understand the Lord Jesus." Adam Clarke (Methodist) in his multi-volume commentary regarding Michael in Revelation 12:7-10, Abingdon Press, Vol. 6, page 952.

David,
I am apoligizing on this blog as well to you for my tone.
Forgive me.
My questions are valid. I frankly and earnestly asked these questions when I was having bible studies with very nice Jehovah Witnesses-they said they would get back to me. On their return for our next bible studies they informed me they could no longer continue with our studies. We prayed together and they departed.
Perhaps maybe you can answer them.

Michael- The historical view of other churches 3.

"It is even itself probable that the Leader of the hosts of light (Rev. 12:7-9) will be no other than the Captain of our salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ Himself...Above all, the prophecies of Daniel, in which the name Michael first occurs, may be said to decide the point." An Exposition Of The Bible: (produced by 27 scholars), Scranton Co., Vol. 6, 1910, page 882

Sure:
Isaiah 66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one [tree] in the midst, eating swine's flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.

1 Timothy 4:4 For every creature of God [is] good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:
1 Timothy 4:5 For it is sanctified by the WORD OF GOD and prayer.

No where in scripture do you find swine sanctified by the word of God, yet baptist and penticostals eat swine which god says do not eat.

My point is this: just as JW have false doctrine, so too do baptist and pentecostals, why are they not called cults?
---francis on 6/27/10


David cannot comprehend that Jesus was fully man (Son of Man, of one substance with and equal to humans, offspring of Mary). And fully God (the Son of God, of one substance with and equal to Almighty God-I and the Father are one).

Jesus had to be man to die. And as Hebrews ch.2 says He shared in our humanity and was tempted, as we are daily, but He unlike us did not submit to temptation. This shows us man can resist temptation.

Jesus had to be fully God to be our Saviour, to forgive all the sins we his creatures have committed. The OT says we have only one Creator and Saviour, God Almighty. The NT says Jesus is the only Creator and Saviour therefore He is Almighty God, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end!

Jesus is not AlmightyGod for scriptural reasons trinitarians cannot come to terms with.

Jesus 'was tempted'- Hebrews 4:15, but 'God cannot be tempted'- James 1:13. Thus Jesus is not AlmightyGod. If you believe Jesus is God, then the Bible contradicts itself here. Alternatively, you will resort to trinitarian psycho babble to explain away what Paul and James meant.

It is also a scriptural point of fact that AlmightyGod cannot die. If you believe Jesus was 'God incarnate' (an anti-Christ teaching- see 1 John 4:2,3), then you are bound to believe AlmightyGod can die. You again contradict scripture which teaches 'God is eternal'.

Jesus is not God, but the 'Son of God' (Jo.1:34)- the first ever creation of Jehovah God.
---David8318 on 6/26/10


If you examine most protestant doctrines you will find lies, errors, and man made doctrine. The JW church is not unique in this

So I am boldly submitting that baptist and penticostals are both deadly cults.

WHY: because they use pagan / heathen feast such as easter and christmas which Jehovah has said we ought never to use in his worship.

Their members eat and drink what they want dispite many biblical warnings from God that we must eat only that which is sanctified for food.

I could go on and on, fact is many protestant denomination have major errors, when then do we decide what is a cult?

Lets see what THE BIBLE SAYS

ARCH ANGEL means CHIEF ANGEL
ANGEL means messenger not created being.
Of all the messengers of God who is the chief? I say JESUS ( The Angel of the Lord)

Then see what the BIBLE says about Michael, and Jesus and see if they say the exact same things

1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, WITH THE VOIE OF THE ARCH ANGEL, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

Whose VOICE raises the dead above texts says ARCHANGEL BELOW TEXT SAYS JESUS

John 5:28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear HIS voice, And shall come forth

The mark of a cult is that they have 'special revelation'. Not just revelation for His church but something that sets yuo apart. 'special ticket to heaven' Its a big ego boost to think God is speaking to you and then have followers of your own - its hard for some to resist - Satan loves people to try to be special - he can lead them anywhere.

Lupe, I know for a fact that many JW's come to a true understanding of who Jesus is and the true gospel. Many don't leave the cult for years after finding salvation.

I hope this brings you some comfort. God bless you.

JW's are defined theologically as a cult simply for the reason that they make Jesus something other than God almighty. Secondly, they teach a works salvation (insult to God). They also teach that all the churches of "Christendom" are part of the Whore of Babylon, whether Catholic, or protestant. They believe that we (Christians) will be destroyed at Armageddon. However, they are blowing us away on the mission field. A sign of the end times.

Everyone should be extra careful not to try to go head to head with them unless you are really prepared with Scripture. I lost my sister and I tried so hard to convince her to take the blood so she wouldn't die and she refused. She was so proud of what she was doing. I showed her the Scriptures in Levi. and Det. to show that what they meant was the blood of animals and that we were not in that convenant anymore.

5. We trust it has been so vividly impressed upon our minds that we will never forget the fact that , if any oppose the Lord by opposing the Channel and the Servant the Lord has delegated to do His work, to that extent he loses the favor, the Spirit of the Lord, light becomes darkness, and he is soon outside." Now this is a clear statement made by them to make sure they followed Russell because he was supposed to have been made the servant for the Lord.

that He is the Chief Reaper of this Harvest, that He has been supervising that work for now about thirty-five years, that He has placed Brother Russell in charge of that work, that the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society is the Channel which He has been pleased to use for the dissemination of the harvest message-the "meat in due season," and we wish to be in thorough harmony with Him and the Channel He uses, and to cooperate in every way possible.

2.every night I would sit with four bibles and one of theirs. So many things are different in their New world Translation. I read the whole life of Charles T. Russel and Joseph F. Rutherford. Charles claimed to be a phrophet, the Watchtower printed an article for a Convention report to the people in 1909, On verse three reads "Our reason for appreciating brother Russell's recognition more than that of any other man living is that, we have Faith that the Lord has returned,

Yes they are. my sister and uncle were both witnesses and both died for not taking the blood during operations. When my sister began I was curious why she believed in that religion. I went to her meetings and other funtions with her. I saw so many things that we don't do. I began a study into her religion, I studied it for four years. I wanted to one day confront my sister and be able to discus things with her so I learned all I could.

OH MY....the twists and lies of the JW is unending. They believe Jesus is "A" god and you can become "A" god also. That is a bold lie from the devil himself. Jesus is THE Christ THE SON OF GOD. He is God Almighty...and none less. No angel business to it. THEY ARE A CULT and you need to run. They are decietful and cunning...with falsehoods. Don't be lead astray by their words...the watch tower. They don't use THE WORD OF GOD..they have their own version.

count.
therefore today the witnesses are being mislead. Reading earlier resources he did beleive Jesus died on a cross, they did celebrate christmas,etc.. but again things were changed after his death, for the worse.

To Erik, though I agree to what you posted, the word "cult" again is misunderstood. thease are not bad people, but should be shown where they were taught wrong. I did my research in this orginization & the second "president" that took over after the founder died also changed a lot what the founder beleived in .

Yes, they are a cult. Any religious organization that denies the deity of Christ, has their own Bible and claims to be the only one who has the "Truth" is a cult.
Stay away from them. Though they be sincere and kind, they are lost and misguided. They desperately need our prayers

A JW came to my door once, and i invited him in and shared with him out of both the O.T. in Isaiah and from the N.T. in John on the Trinity, where it reads that Jesus is the Father. He said that he would have to take this back to "kingdom hall". i think when they discover that you're a solid born-again christian, they mark your house to never come back again.

I've heard several pastors refer to them as cults; I do know they're false witnesses. Have you ever listened to a Jehova's Witness closely enough to pick up on not only the wrong things they teach but the truths they don't witness about? I've discovered one of the fastest ways to scare one off is to tell them I believe in God and the Bible.

False. Jesus is God's only sired Son, not a created angel. Scripture reads that Jesus is the Creator, not a creature.
