Jehovah’s Witnesses Answered 8


So far we’ve established:

  • Jehovah’s Witnesses are not Christians, as two of the cardinal doctrines of Christianity include the Godhood of Jesus Christ and the Trinity.
  • The translators of the New World Translation were not “experienced, anointed Christians” as the Watchtower Society claims – but rather untrained, inexperienced Jehovah’s Witnesses
  • It would take doctorate degrees in Greek and Hebrew to be qualified to translate the Bible
  • According to Ray Franz, only one of the Translators knew any Greek, and no Hebrew
  • There is no good reason to withhold the list of the translators of the NWT, and suggest the Watchtower Society has something to hide by concealing the names of the translators.
  • Fred Franz, who served on the translating committee of the NWT, was incapable of recognizing a single Hebrew word in court, or even a single Hebrew letter – after claiming under oath he knew both Koine Greek and Hebrew.
  • The JW’s rely on the United Bible Society text and Kittel’s BHS Hebrew – for what, I don’t know, since their translators don’t know any Hebrew or Greek
  • The oldest Greek texts are actually the Textus Receptus, not the Wescott-Hort The majority of the oldest forms of the manuscripts are actually Textus Receptus
  • The earliest of church fathers, living in the time of the apostles until AD 130 all quoted from the Textus Receptus.
  • If Vaticanus or Sinaiticus were truly the original Greek, then they wouldn’t quote words or verses that those manuscripts leave out
  • The NWT has major inconsistancies compared with the Textus Receptus
  • The NWT revealed its bias against the Godhood of the Lord Jesus Christ by forgetting to twist a verse that shows the Lord Jesus Christ willingly received worship, and that some worship Him in vain (Matt. 15:9)
  • The usage of “Sheol” in the Old Testament in context means “The abode of the dead”
  • Sheol contained both Abraham’s Bosom (Paradise) and Hell, with a great gulf fixed between
  • Both the Old and New Testament say that Hell is a place of fire, perpetual torment and burning
  • a Grave is cool, and does not torment or burn.
  • Luke 16 is a record of fact, and not a parable
  • names are never mentioned in parables, but Luke 16 names Abraham and Lazarus
  • The rich man in Luke 16 is not named because obviously we don’t need to know who it is.
  • Almost every verse in the Bible on Hell is speaking of a literal place of torment and suffering.
  • The Lord Jesus Christ is not an Angel
  • Angels Are Created beings, hence the terms “sons of God”
  • Jesus Christ is ternally God, therefore not a created being, therefore cannto be an Angel.
  • The term “Son of God” refers to the relationship between God the Father and God the Son.

3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Hebrews 1:3 (KJV)

25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. Hebrews 7:25 (KJV)

10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; 13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. 14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Hebrews 10:10-14 (KJV)

8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; Revelation 5:8-9 (KJV)

12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing. 13 And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever. 14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever. Revelation 5:12-14 (KJV)

10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. Revelation 7:10 (KJV)

Revelation 5:8-9 shows that the Lord Jesus Christ is worshipped in heaven by men. Revelation 5:12 shows the same thing, and the four living ones saying “Amen” to it.

2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him. Matthew 2:2 (KJV)

11 And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. Matthew 2:11 (KJV)

2 And, behold, there came a leper and worshipped him, saying, Lord, if thou wilt, thou canst make me clean. Matthew 8:2 (KJV)

18 While he spake these things unto them, behold, there came a certain ruler, and worshipped him, saying, My daughter is even now dead: but come and lay thy hand upon her, and she shall live. Matthew 9:18 (KJV)

33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God. Matthew 14:33 (KJV)

9 But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Matthew 15:9 (KJV)

25 Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. Matthew 15:25 (KJV)

20 Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him. Matthew 20:20 (KJV)

9 And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. Matthew 28:9 (KJV)

17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted. Matthew 28:17 (KJV)

6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, Mark 5:6 (KJV)

7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. Mark 7:7 (KJV)

\52 And they worshipped him, and returned to Jerusalem with great joy: Luke 24:52 (KJV)

8 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him. John 9:38 (KJV)

10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Revelation 4:10 (KJV)

14 And the four beasts said, Amen. And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped him that liveth for ever and ever. Revelation 5:14 (KJV)

7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. Revelation 14:7 (KJV)

The Lord Jesus Christ received worship. Again, angels always stop people from worshipping them. The Lord NEVER stopped anyone from worshipping Him. Why? It was His rightful due. The day will come when every Jehovah’s Witness will be forced to kneel before Jesus Christ and worship Him, and confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is God. I plead with you to stop struggling, and do this NOW, voluntarily! There is NO HOPE for you FOREVER if you do not bow and admit that Jesus Christ is Lord!

18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me. John 8:18 (KJV)

9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. John 10:9 (KJV)

11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. John 10:11 (KJV)

25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: John 11:25 (KJV)

19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he. John 13:19 (KJV)

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 (KJV)

5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:5 (KJV)

35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. John 6:35 (KJV)

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. John 8:12 (KJV)

19 Now I tell you before it come, that, when it is come to pass, ye may believe that I am he. John 13:19 (KJV)

6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6 (KJV)

25 The other disciples therefore said unto him, We have seen the Lord. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. 26 And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. 27 Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. 28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. 29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. John 20:25-29 (KJV)

There is no doubt. The Lord Jesus Christ is God. John 14:6 says “no man cometh to the Father but by me.” John 10:9 shows that only through the Lord Jesus Christ can we enter heaven. Unless we believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and God, according to John 8:24, we will die in our sins. And according to all the verses on Hell I’ve already realt with, that means an unending eternity in Hell.

Make no mistake – the Watchtower Society is going to lead you there, forever. I plead with you now, study what I’ve writtten! Read the Bible alone, forgetting any of the Watchtower Society’s publications. THEY won’t answer for you at the Judgment – you will answer for yourself why you refused to believe.

Again, I repeat what I’ve already written – the Lord Jesus Christ has always existed. No angel ever has existed from eternity. There is no such thing as a small g god. There is only God. So when the Bible says the Lord is God, they clearly are stating He is God!!!

16 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: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Colossians 1:16-17 (KJV)

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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)

2 But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting. Micah 5:2 (KJV)

8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. Revelation 1:8 (KJV)

Repent, and be saved. Come out of the Watchtower Society. Ye msut be born again. bow right now, and confess that you are a sinner, worthy of nothing but Hell. You know its true, you’ve read it in the Bible. Confess that the Lord Jesus Christ is God, and that He alone can save you. Beg Him to forgive your sins, and accept Him as your Lord and Saviour.

If you do this, you will be saved.

If you do not… I’m sorry. You will forever regret it, in torment that never ends.

Seminary graduate with a Ba. in Theology/Pastoral Studies, Happily married, Independent Baptist. I can't keep silent about what I see going on in Christianity any longer! Apostasy reigns around us, churches are sliding into worldiness, a whitewashed Gospel is preached everywhere... "Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Jeremiah 6:16 (KJV) So, I'm speaking out. ...Why aren't you???
