Rozdiel medzi svedkov a kresťanmi Jehovových

jesus Svedkovia Jehovovi vs kresťanov

Kresťanstvo, podľa definície, je systém viery, ktorý odráža učenie Ježiša Krista, ktorý technicky kvalifikovať svedkami Jehovovej ako kresťania, pretože oni robia nasledovať učenie Ježiša Krista. Avšak, svedkovia Jehovovi veria v ich rozdielne verzie Krista, ktorá priniesla mnoho kontroly medzi Christ-stred náboženstvo.

svedkovia Jehovovi tvrdia, že sú kresťania však tradičný kresťania uvažovať o svedkami Jehovovej ako kacírov pre druhý verí, že Ježiš Kristus a Boh nie je jedno a to isté, veľmi ostrom kontraste od kresťanstva pohľad na trojičného Božiu, "tri oddelené bytosti ako jeden Bohom.

Pre svedkami Jehovovej, je tam len jeden Boh, a to je Pán; zatiaľ čo kresťania veria v Najsvätejšej Trojice Božej prítomnosti, "Boh ako otec, ako syn (Jesus Christ), a Boha ako Ducha Svätého. Pohľad kresťanov o tejto trojičného boha je odsúdená svedkov Jehovových. Svedkov Jehovových, Trojica je satanský dogma odpadnutého kresťanstva, ktorá bráni ľuďom poznanie pravého Boha Jehovu.

Veľmi zrejmý rozpor medzi svedkami Jehovovými a kresťanmi je ich pohľad na Ježiša Krista. Podobnosti v oboch skončí v presvedčení, že Ježiš je Syn Boží, a tiež božský. Zatiaľ, JW silne tvrdiť, že Ježiš nie je Boh, a keď božská, nie je rovnaká a vždy pod Bohom. Kristus a archanjel Michael sú považované za jedno a to isté vo viere svedkov Jehovových.

Kresťania veria v apokalypse ako je deklarované v knihe zjavení. Napriek tomu, že nevie, kedy sa to stane. Proste verí, že to bude aj niektorí kresťania sa dokonca domnievajú, že to môže byť pravda, ale nie presný dátum alebo udalosť, ktorá bola poskytnutá ako začiatok konca času. Svedkovia Jehovovi majú iný pohľad na apokalypse a ako to bude fungovať. Pravdepodobne najpozoruhodnejšie z nich je to, že dátum bolo dané. 1914 má byť rokom, kedy to začalo všetko podľa svedkov Jehovových.

Zhrnutie:

1. Svedkovia Jehovovi veria, že Boh je Pán sám, zatiaľ čo kresťanstvo verí v Boha, trojičnej, "Boha v troch samostatných bytostí. 2. Svedkovia Jehovovi veria, že Ježiš je Boží (Jehova), syn a úplne oddeliť od Boha; Ježiš je tiež veril, že je archanjel Michael. Kresťanstvo, na druhej strane tvrdí, že Ježiš je Syn Boží, ale aj sám Boh ako doznal od Najsvätejšej Trojice. 3. svedkovia Jehovovi veria, že koniec času je teraz ktoré začalo diať v určitom čase, 1914. Kým kresťanstvo, aj keď tiež verí na konci doby, nevie, kedy sa to stane, ani definitívny dátum vôbec. 4. svedkovia Jehovovi veria v Duchu Svätom ako Boží činné sily, zatiaľ čo kresťania myslieť na Ducha Svätého ako aj samotného Boha.

  1. Kde presne sa výraz "Svätá trojica" sa objaví v Písme. Ak Ježiš je Boh, prečo existujú rôzne slová v hebrejčine a gréčtine, keď s odkazom na Jehovovi a Ježišovi. Ak Ježiš je Boh, ako sa mu sedí po pravici Boha Pánovým nebesia po Ježišovej smrti a vzkriesení verný? Ak Ježiš bol Hospodin Boh na zemi, ako by jeho vernosť bolo výkupné. Jehova je neomylný, a preto nemohli zhrešili a by nebol rovnaký výkupné Adamovi. Len tým, že je dokonalý človek by to mohol byť výkupné.

    Trojjediného Boha je pohanský nápad, ktorý sa datuje dávno pred kresťanstvom. Ani Jehova alebo Ježiš by použiť čokoľvek, ktorá bola použitá pohanmi reprezentovať značku jeho nasledovníkov. Existuje mnoho ľudí, ktorí veria v trojice a v žiadnom prípade nie sú nasledovníkmi Ježiša alebo čo učil. Možno budete chcieť, aby preskúmala definíciu Christian ....

    že tí, ktorí veria v "Najsvätejšej Trojice" veriť a hovoriť o dobré správy? Pozrite sa len na Kráľovstvo Jehovových ako riešenie problémov človeka?

    Dúfam, že ľudia nevyzerajú na písania tohto článku ako faktický to naozaj je len názor.

    btw ... rád reklamy na vašej stránke ... veľmi skromný a zároveň vysvetľuje, ako Svedok Jehovov nie sú kresťania.

    • Ježiš sedí po pravici Boha, pretože Boh Otec mu dal všetku moc. (Rimanom 8:34 v The Holy Bible) Boh Otec je Duch a poslal svojho Ducha v Máriinom lone. Preto, keď sa Ježiš narodil, narodil sa v tele, aby zachránili svet. Keď Ježiš zomrel, nám poslal Ducha Svätého, ktorý žije vo vnútri nás ako Jeho veriacich a nasledovníkov. (Rimanom 8: 9 vo Svätej Biblii) Viac o Ježišovi v synoptické (Matúš, Marek, Lukáš v The Holy Bible)

    • Johovah svedkovia sú s najväčšou pravdepodobnosťou "kresťania".

      Sledujú učenie "Ježišovi Kristovi".

      • Kresťania, keď čo požiadal Ježiša, aby bol ich pán a záchranca po Duch Svätý bol odsúdený im. Len emulovať Ježiš nerobí kresťana. Robiť práca nebude dostanete do neba. Môžete veriť v Ježišovej smrti, ale nie jeho zmŕtvychvstanie, potom ste stále mŕtvy vo svojom hriechu.

    • Jedná sa o veľmi starý komentár, takže predpokladám, že nebude možné ho čítať, ale tiež som odmietal veriť v trojici po dobu 7 rokov, a ja som bol študentom Biblie viac ako 40 rokov. Nechcel som cirkevné vplyvmi pošpiniť moje chápanie Božie slovo pre nás, ale oddeliť seba čo najviac z učenia človeka, ktorý nie je jasne a presvedčivo učil v Biblii. Aj zlikvidovať trojicu práve z tohto dôvodu. Ale ja nemal alternatívne výučbu. Len som to dať do suspenzie po dobu 7 rokov, kým mi Boh ukázal pravdu. Nakoniec som prišiel veriť v trojici, alebo niečo podobné, a to výlučne prostredníctvom svojho slova. Iste, je tu tajomstvo o Trojici. Tam vždy bude pre mňa v tomto živote. Ale ústrednou témou bolo "kto je Ježiš?" Určite nie je Michael archanjel. Že človek nikdy robil to do tabuľky. Ale on je z Boha. Ten je súčasťou Boha. Už nie je pochýb o tom. To by trvalo mesiac podielu, ako som sa tam dostal, ale to bolo cez starostlivé a modlitebným štúdiu samotných písiem.

      • Chvála Bohu za vašu spásu. Nedávno som dostal klopanie na dvere od krásnej JW. Povedal som jej, že som znovuzrodený kresťan a Biblia hovorí, že kto nie je proti nám (kresťanom / nasledovníkov Ježiša), je pre nás (Lk 9,50), takže som ju pozval k chatu niečo viac a dáme Boha otec Ježiš a Duch svätý urobiť His (ako jediný jediný pravý Boh) práce pri odhaľovaní pravdy. Biblia tiež hovorí, že budete poznať pravdu a pravda vás oslobodí (John 8,32). Som tak šťastný, pre všetkých tých, ktorí si slobodu, ktorú nemožno plne vysvetliť, ale je skutočné a je potrebné zdieľať s ostatnými.

  2. JW prispieval k vyššie uvedenému.

    Lepšie Insight: Svedok náboženstvo Jehovových bol vynájdený mužom menom Charles Taz Russell, kto veril, že by mohol chodiť na konci časov tým, že študuje archeológiu alebo dizajn egyptských pyramíd.

    Verí, že v 2. triede skupiny ľudí ( "pomazaný" alebo "The John triedy" A "The Other Sheep") ako klasifikáciu do vášho večného života.

    Oni používajú náboženské založený časopis s názvom The Watchtower a ďalšie WBTS publikácia rovnako alebo viac, než je skutočná biblie.

    Ak je použitie Biblie, ktoré zvyčajne používajú verzii s názvom Preklad nového sveta.

    The New World Translation bol preložený svedkov Jehovových pre svedkovia Jehovovi.

    Ani táto kniha sama o sebe ani WBTS (Strážna veža Biblie a Tract Society je to, čo by ste nazvali firemné kancelária pre svedkov Jehovových) bude zverejňovať odkazy o tom, kto prekladatelia boli, alebo ak oni boli dokonca kvalifikovaní, aby preklad v prvom rade ,

    Mám veľa viac a som si istý, o tomto náboženstve a iní Študoval som a teraz považujem Ateista. A áno, som bývalý JW.

    Keď sa konečne odhaliť a pochopiť, prečo neveria v bohov iných náboženstiev budete rozumieť, prečo Neverím v tvojho.

    • Ste pohan, aj zaručiť, že ste nikdy JW. Firsty ste nikdy neboli pokrstení, ak si myslíte, že je niečo pravdy na falošné / neznalí komentáre, ktoré ste urobili. Tento článok mal nejaké nesprávne body a ste úplne stratil a nesprávne AS FOR YOU KOMENTÁRE NA JW je pomocou rozhľadne / Awake časopisy ako nejaká náhrada za bibliu. BIBLIA bol autorom Ježišovom DECIPLES a inšpirovaný Pán Boh skrze jeho ACTIVE svätého ducha, ktorý v žiadnom prípade nie je súčasťou, trojica ', ktorý je iba spomenuté v FALSE / falošný bibliou, inšpirovaný, doktori',, učenci ', a I. PAGAN MEN a sa vykonáva tak, aby urobili DEVILS práce a pliesť hmotnosťami, ktorý sa snažíte robiť ...

      Pointa je: modliť k JEHOVA (GOD) alebo čokoľvek sa rozhodnete mu zavolať, B / CI GUESS SI MYSLÍTE Jehova nie je skutočné meno rovnako, a požiadajte ho, aby pomôže orientovať svoje srdce a myseľ a viesť vás do pravda a pomôže vám urobiť správne rozhodnutie, požiadajte ho, aby vám pomôže rozvíjať vzťahy W / hO, AS anyones Biblia hovorí, a on sľubuje, že sa postará o zvyšok tak dlho, ako ste skutočne hľadá "pravda" W / NIE predpojatosti a dusičnanu amónneho OTVORENÉ SRDCE…

On tiež jasne stanovuje, že je jasné tenká hranica, pokiaľ ide o CO SIDE SA ROZHODNETE: STE BUĎ na bok OR satans SIDE, PERIOD BOD prázdna a žiadny manévrovací priestor !!!

      Až príde čas, a nikto nevie, kedy a ako, len to, že to nebude FROM 4O dní a 40 nocí dážď, každý, kto má nevybral SE hlavou a "GET na oblúku, ak chcete" prevezme rovnaký osud ako tí, ktorí sa rozhodli ingore Noe ... teda tí, ktorí sú tak rozrušená O svedkov robí Jehovovi vám AND klope na dvere ... stať sa vzdelaný, 100% Ježišovej doby strávil DEJE dverí k dverám, dediny k dedine, mesto do mesta a hlásal evanjelium (Pravda) o svojom otcovi Jehova a jeho kráľovstvo ...

      Moje srdce vyjde na tých, ktorí boli vychovávaní byť tak neznalý a nenávistný a modliť SOMEONE vám záleží dosť dosiahne YOU W / pravdu, než bude príliš neskoro ... dávať pozor na náznaky, že BIBLIA (bane alebo YOURS) stanovuje pozor na dni a budete C, že tieto veci sa dejú práve tak ako Biblia predpovedala, rovnako ako v Noahs deň a čas ... byť aktívny, nie pesimistický, váš život závisí na tom. To je sľub Pánovi Bohu ...!

      • JUST veriť tomu, čo veriť a nikdy nesmie BOJ keď jeden pripomienky k VÁS

      • "No manévrovací priestor", aby ste pochopili, že pri písaní veľkými písmenami, ktorý kričal. Nechaj ma udrieť bod alebo dva nie krútiť. Ako by ste mali viesť druhej Jehovovho kričí na ne. Matthew 5: 43-48 ESV / "Počuli ste, že bolo povedané:, Miluj svojho blížneho a nenávidieť svojho nepriateľa. ' Ale hovorím vám, milujte svojich nepriateľov a modlite sa za tých, čo vás prenasledujú, aby ste boli synovia svojho Otca, ktorý je v nebesiach. Lebo dáva slnku svietiť na zlých aj na dobré a dážď posiela na spravodlivých aj na nespravodlivých. Alebo ak milujete tých, ktorí vás milujú, aká odmena máte? Ani sa vyberač daní urobiť to isté? A ak ste pozdraviť len svojich bratov, čo viac robíš, ako ostatní? Ani sa pohania urobiť to isté? Ježiš bol požiadaný, čo sú dve najväčšie prikázania a vo svojej odpovedi povedal nasledujúce "Matthew 22:39 A Druhé je mu podobné: Milovať budeš svojho blížneho ako seba samého. Ježiš neurobil žiadny krik na nikoho. Nikdy obvinil nikoho, a rozpráva o súdiť ostatní.

        Takže s tým, že ste zhrešili najmenej trikrát proti iným mužom, ktorý by vzal všetku manévrovací priestor preč. Ako sa opovažuješ sa domnievať, že ste jediní ľudia prenasledovaní a potom nás prenasledujú sami. Ukázali ste nič, ale nenávidí tak ďaleko a potom volať na mene Ježiša. Domnievate sa, že cesta cez spásy klope na dvere, národy, ktoré som urobil ako svedok Jehovov a ako kresťan. Ty ma vidieť, pretože si nie je doma.

        Prídete do môjho domu a ja odpoveď a ja vám umožní hovoriť o svoje presvedčenie. Akonáhle som sa hovoriť o svojej viere, že chcete odísť. Znovu si prišiel do môjho domu, bol som dosť, aby vás pustil dnu a počúvať pohostinní. Nemal by som byť schopný povedať niečo v mojom dome o Ježišovi. Ak som zmätená budete vedieť, či ma vypočuť. Tu je problém, vo vašom vlastnom zmätku všetky tri alebo štyri z vás vo svojom dome zvyknutý dovoľte mi dostať slovo. Bojíš že to, čo by mohlo byť povedané, môže viesť k zmene srdca. Že počuje pravdu, môže vás oslobodí. Poznám mnoho svedkov Jehovových, že je kresťan, ja som jeden z nich. Hovoríte, že naša Biblia pozri 40 autorov inšpirované Bohom je napísané pohanov. Domnievam sa, že každý človek, ktorý napísal knihu alebo tak v Biblii, sú hriešnici, a niektorí boli veľkí hriešnici. Preklady sú dnes preklady vykonané na moderné jazyk hovorený dnes. Anglický jazyk sa zmení a tak biblie je preložený k lepšiemu porozumeniu, rovnako ako vy. Rozdiel je v tom, že prekladatelia, aby sa prihlásili, takže môžeme kontrolovať svoje odkazy na ich schopnosti prekladať gréčtinu alebo hebrejčinu do angličtiny. WBTS to nerobí, a pretože nevieme, či vaši prekladatelia vedieť, grécky než nevieme o jeho správnosti. Vezmite to ako môj východiskový bod John 1: 1 NWT spomína dva bohov, prečítajte si to a ak je to možné ho spochybniť, ale jasne hovorí, spoznáte bohmi. Končí hovoriť slovo bolo boh. Vysvetliť, buď veriť, podľa prekladu, že to znamená, že je viac ako jeden Boh. Alebo to môže mať iba jednu ďalšiu možnú odpoveď, ktorá je nesprávne vyložil, že Ježiš a Boh sú jedno a to isté. Žiadne iné možné vysvetlenie, je mi ľúto. JW to sú jediní, kto robí veci tak, ako Boh hovorí. To je rovina tučné tvárou pokrytecké lži. Ako bývalý svedok som mal priateľov, ktoré boli gangu petardy, smilníci, zlodeji, klamári, podvodníci, vrahovia, násilníci manžel, cudzoložníci, a tak ďalej, stretnutie so mnou v sále Kráľovstva v stredu av nedeľu.

        Problém s tým je, že keď sú tieto hriechy zistil JW ľudovej spoločenstvo s tými ľuďmi. Vzhľadom k tomu, že je to, čo myslím, že váš Ježiš hovorí, že robiť, alebo Biblii prekladá odpustenie týmto spôsobom. Ježiš som čítal v knihe a mojej Biblie len pokračoval v chôdzi k Jeruzalemu odpúšťajúci ľuďom. To by som sa na ukameňovanie, zlá Márie z Magdaly, ak JW to bolo asi ona a Ježiš by pravdepodobne boli ukameňovaný.

        Let po odlúči seba s JW rokov som sa vrátil a bol hrubý a hrozné. Išiel som do baptistického zboru a okamžite dostal uložený. Som teraz ministrom jediného pravého Boha, budete musieť každú príležitosť činiť pokánie zo svojich hriechov a poznali a mali s syna, Ježiša Krista. Príďte a navštívte nás prvýkrát, počúvať na slovo danej nám Božie inšpiráciu. Modlite sa s nami, ako sme sa za vás modliť. Problém je v tom, že aj keď Boh vám dal slobodu rozhodovania, vy to neviete.

        Chvála Bohu

      • Cítim sa zle pre vy nebudete mať mäso dušu a ducha, je to tak chyba, že vaše náboženstvo verí vo dva bohov, pretože Boh potrebuje ďalšie Boha, aby sa jeho slovo robí to nejaký zmysel pre vás, ale na druhú stranu zabudnete čítať 1 Timothy 3 : 16 sú tiež nie sme duše a duch a telo sme tri v jednom, takže blázon je Boh a v prípade, že syn povedal, že otec je väčšia, pretože otec je celý duch Ježiš je jeho prejavený časť boha, ako nemôžete pochopiť sväté duch je otec, ktorý z nich robí jeden inými slovami pre ľudí, ktorí nie sú tak jasné nazval Boh syna mäsa a svätého ducha ako otec na konci dňa sú všetci, kto bol dokonalý ako Ježiš, ktorý uzdravoval chorých, ako krmivo zástup, ako ťažké je to pre vás veriť, že potom veriť, že Ježiš je menšia boh alebo bol anjel a celá nemý ničomu nezmysel náboženstvo nemiluje ísť do zjavenia a zistiť, kde sa dostanete zo siedmich cirkvám v Ázii vidieť ak Ježiš nemá veľa vecí AGA inst vás

    • Prvý zo všetkých ľudí, Charles Taze Russell nie je zakladateľom nového náboženstva, pretože väčšina z vás myslia.

      Moderné-dňový organizácie svedkov Jehovových začali na konci 19. storočia. V tej dobe malá skupina študentov Biblie, ktorí žili neďaleko Pittsburghu, Pennsylvania, v Spojených štátoch, začala systematickú analýzu biblie. Porovnávali náuky učil cirkví s tým, čo Biblia skutočne učí. Začali vydávať, čo sa naučili v knihách, novinách a denníka, ktorý sa teraz nazýva Strážna veža-Ohlásenie Británie Jehovovi.

      V skupine úprimných študentov biblickej bol muž menom Charles Taze Russell. Kým Russell ujal vedenia v Biblii vzdelávacie prácu v tej dobe a bol prvý redaktor The Watchtower, nebol zakladateľom nového náboženstva. Cieľom Russell a ďalší Biblie študentov, pretože skupina bola potom známy, bolo podporovať učenie Ježiša Krista a nasledovať praktiky kresťanského zboru prvého storočia. Vzhľadom na to, že Ježiš je zakladateľ kresťanstva, vnímame ho ako zakladateľ našej organization.-Kolosanom 1: 18-20.

      A tiež, Veríme, že Ježiš nie je Boh sám, neznamená to, že neveríme v Ježiša. Veríme, že Ježiš je Syn Boží.

      Pri čítaní biblie (iné biblie rovnako), som čítal v Matúšovi 26: 36-46, že Ježiš modlil v Getsemanskej záhrade, a keď sa vrátil k apoštolom, zaspali, a tak sa vrátil a pokračoval, aby sa modlil. Otázkou je, kto sa modlil, aby? Jemu? Vzhľadom k tomu, že je Boh? No, keď sa modlil, aby niekoho a že je jeho otec všemocný Pán.

      Veríme, že Ježiš je Kráľ, priechod, cesta našich modlitieb. Nemysleli sme si Ježiša ako nedôležitú dokonalé bytosti.

      Téma je tu "bytia kresťanmi" a to znamená, že len vlastnosti, ktoré sú vedené skrze Ježiša, a nasleduje jeho nasledovníkov.

  3. Moja skúsenosť je, že kresťania, ktorí sa stanú Svedkovia Jehovovi začnú koša Ježiša tým, že popiera jeho božstvo a božstvo. Sú dočkať znižovať každý, kto odoláva svojho mentora umelé náboženstva. Veľmi rýchlo sa zhodujú, že Jehova si nepraje, aby niektorý stvorená bytosť má byť uctievaný v súlade s prvou a druhé prikázanie. Vzhľadom k tomu, ich viera je, že Ježiš bol vytvorený von archanjela Michaela ... musí byť v rozpore s Jehovových 10 prikázaní, či uctievajú Ježiša. Ako to, že sa svedok Jehovov zobraziť 11 učeníkov, ktorí uctievali vzkriesený Ježiš pri svojom odchode. Hoci JW sa dočkať, až sudca a odsúdi všetky kresťanstva ako kacírov, robia verejne odsúdiť apoštolmi ako porušujú prikázania Jehovových? Nestretol som sa s jedným Svedkami Jehovovej, ktorí nemali snažiť zničiť moju vieru v Ježiša. Žiadny z nich sa zdajú prijať autoritu Ježiša, Božieho Syna, ako všemohúci. Popierajú, že Ježiš bol daný všetok súd ľudstva, že mu môže odpustiť hriechy, bude chlieb života a vzkriesenia a je Kráľ kráľov a Pán pánov. "Kresťania" s malým alebo žiadnym učením Biblie báze a nedostatok osobného vzťahu s Ježišom, sa stávajú náchylné k vymývanie mozgov techník JW kultu. Po celom svete, Svedkovia Jehovovi nie sú zďaleka problém, ktorý je spôsobený islamu ... ale sú súčasťou rovnakej Nového svetového poriadku, ktorý prichádza proti Ježišovi. Uctievanie Ježiš je vôľa Otca Boha a môže byť vykonané iba prostredníctvom mocou svojho Ducha Svätého.

    • Amen vyššie uvedeného komentáre !!!! To je to, čo mám povedať o tom ...... .AMEN !!!!!!

    • Váš klamár aj preto, ako sú súčasťou nového svetového poriadku, keď sme DONT participapte na govts ??

      • Ste išiel do verejných škôl, je váš vodičský preukaz z DMV, robí pošty prejsť pošte, budete platiť dane, vy alebo niekto viete, prijímať sociálne zabezpečenie, máte banky za banky FDIC? Ak vaša odpoveď znie áno na niektorú z týchto, ste zapojení do vlády. Len preto, že nie Sľubujem vernosť, spievať národnú hymnu, slúžiť krajine, v ktorej žijete alebo hlasovanie nerobí vám vybrať. V skutočnosti je to časť problému v tejto krajine. Zákony sú odovzdané k homosexuálne manželstvo, legalizoval drog, slobodu nosiť pri sebe zbraň a sloboda mať potraty. Zatiaľ na milión a JW sa v krajine, ktorá nie je jediný hlas proti niektorej z týchto hriechov. Musia byť skalné kresťania vina, že podporuje to, čo Jehova hovorí, že o týchto veciach. To je pravda, povedal som, že viem, čo Volá sa a prečo sa nazýva ho.

        chvála Bohu

    • Viete, že ste klamár ... LOL nikto z Jehovových ORGANIZÁCIE počas života sa pokúsil otočiť proti vám Ježiš alebo sa snažil znižovať HIS význam. WE určite veria v Ježiša a dať mu chválu, ktorá je vhodná k jeho pozíciu, ako je popísané jeho otcom Jehovovi. Len dokonalá človek mohol POKÁNIE za naše hriechy, a to bol Ježiš. STOP popierať význam NAME, ocenia, že Boh je HLAVA A Jehova je jeho meno a Štart vášho výskumu odtiaľ. Zabudnete, že ste PODPORA Baptista, Kresťan, Lutheran JW ALEBO nejakému inému náboženstvu a vychovávať si na faktoch a nie na fikcii, že je falošné náboženstvo, HATE a médií. Ako dlho, ako to bolo od vás predal tvoju dušu? Ľudia sú tak zábavné: Zrazu ľudia sú vidieť, že Vianoce, SV.VALENTÝN a všetky ostatné pohan prázdniny sú a boli nekresťan / pohanská rituálov, ktoré človek a kostol na podporu v MAN výhradne. V naturáliách, budete všetci uvedomiť, že všetko, čo v NWT zodpovedajú skutočnosti a CAN a preukázalo / podporený biblických učencov zo spoločnosti, rovnako ako vaše PAGAN ministrov, kazatelia, otca a pápežov, atď ...

      • Potom potvrdzujú, že viete len to, čo bolo povedané. Neviete, kedy Ježiš narodeniny a tiež nie ja, ale ja nechodím hovoriť ľuďom, keď je koniec sveta je jeden. Nikto nevie, že deň a podľa Písma nikto nebude. Biblia hovorí, že okolo roku 1914 začiatok konca začala, ach nie. Môžete na vedomie, jeden akt milosrdenstva a hovoriť robíme službu Bohu. My nakŕmiť hladné, sme pomohli ženy presunúť ju domov, ktoré museli byť zo strany na konci dňa a nemal žiadnu pomoc. Aj navštíviť staré národy domovy, som zaklopal na návštevníkov k dverám kostolov evanjelizovať. Čo ma vedie sa opýtať na túto otázku, prečo každý, kto je svedok musieť robiť práce na ceste? Dar evanjelizácie nie je dar každého z nás. Možno neviete, o dary Ducha, pretože sa pravdepodobne preskočiť túto časť. A prečo sa stále kričí?

        Nepotrebujem Vianoce, mám každodenné osobný vzťah s Kristom, ktorý mimochodom je cesta, pravda a život, nikto ide k Otcovi než skrze Ježiša, Ján 14: 6. To hovorí, že to isté vo svojom preklade taky som sa pozeral. Ešte ďalej verš 7 hovorí, že keby mi známe, vy muži, by ste aj môjho Otca poznali od tejto chvíle viete ho a videli ho. Čo to znamená pýtaš? To znamená, ak ste ma videl, známy mi, išiel so mnou, so mnou hovoril a modlil sa, aby ma potom ste tiež urobil s Bohom. On a Otec sú jedno a to isté. Som si istý, máte nejaké iracionálne vysvetlenie toho, čo hovorí, že vaše vlastné Biblie. Okrem toho Spoločnosť Strážna veža tiež uviedla, že ich vlastné publikácie The Watchtower je Boží "komunikačné prostriedky na jeho ľudí na zemi." Čo je potom biblia? 2 Timoteovi 3:16 od NWT hovorí: "Celé Písmo je inšpirované Bohom a je prospešné k vyučovanie, ku karhanie, urovnávať vecí, k kázeň v spravodlivosti, 17 aby Božie muži môžu byť plne kompetentný, kompletne vybavené pre každá dobrá práca. Nepotrebujem strážna veža alebo niektorý z vieroučných kníh používaných v sále Kráľovstva alebo dom. Ako je "Pravda, ktorá vedie k večnému životu" modrej knihy v poriadku? Počúvaní Veľkého učiteľa, ružové Book, že jo? Jo, ja viem, ja nie predstierať, že ste. Boh hovorí, že biblia je to, čo potrebujete vedieť, že učí o všetkom, dar Ducha Svätého nechal tu pre nás, čo nám pomáha učiť sa a rozoznať je to, čo budete potrebovať. Nie je neznáme bez poverenia autormi odbornom periodiku, ktorí sú nespoľahlivé.

        Nikdy sa zmiasť tým, čo človek zasa hovorí.

        chvála Bohu

    • Ďakujem AB. No uvedené! Boh žehnaj!

  4. Ok dobre dovoľte mi to vysvetliť od uvažovania veiwpoint bez použitia nenávidenej meno Jehova. Hovoríte, že z dôvodu, že z dôvodu Charles Taze Russell začal túto vieru, že to bol muž robil náboženstva. No pozrime. Máme katolícku cirkev, ktorá tvrdí, že jej vodca bol Ježiš, ale hovoria, že apoštol Peter bol prvým pápežom. MUŽ! Potom máme máme ešte Baptistu, ktorý názov je odvodený od Jána Krstiteľa, A MAN! Potom je tu luteráni, Martin Luther. a tony iných náboženstiev, ktoré vymenovali seba po tom, čo muži a samozvaných mužov. Hovoríte, že JW sú muž - made náboženstvom, ale Biblia hovorí, že v Efezským 4: 8, ktoré dary mužov by mali byť poskytované na kresťanov verš 7 hovorí, že Kristus za predpokladu, že dar Charles Taze Russell urobil niečo, čo mnohí tzv Boží muži nechceli robiť. Už bol úspešný obchodné muž v odevnom priemysle a veľmi bohatý. Ale dal používa celej svojej imanie preč biblie znalostí a pomôcť ľuďom ďaleko, aby pomohol ľuďom po celom svete učiť pravdu o tom, čo bolo napísané v Biblii. A mimochodom použil kráľovi Jakubovi, ako to urobiť, pretože to bolo všetko, čo bolo v jeho rukách to, aby čas. Že na začiatku organizácia bola výzva jednoducho International Biblie študentov, pretože oni nechceli vzdať slávu sami, ale k Bohu. Nemusí urobil všetko správne, a nikto nemôže len tak mimochodom, ale urobil, čo mohol, a nemôžete argumentovať s výsledkami. ALEBO PEACE medzi týmito rouhačský ľudí. Ak by všetci ľudia na zemi boli _________Witnessess. tam by nemal byť mier na zemi. nemajú zapojiť do vojny s iným národom. Nemajú voliť, pretože verí, že všetci slávu za to, čo by mal ísť k Bohu, a nie človek. Ale Boh vybral ľudí robiť veci v jeho prospech. Ježiš vybral ľudí robiť prácu, ktorú by mohol ľahko vykonať sám. Takže ak Boh sa chystá vybrať si muža plniť jeho vôľu, je to naozaj niečo nové, čo neurobil skôr? Kto by mal Boh vybrať, človek vytvára bohatstvo pre seba tým, že využije peňazí človeka tým, že je pocit viny, a bamboozling je z desiatich + percent svojich príjmov každý týždeň, alebo muža, ako Russell, ktorí sa rozhodli vzdať šťastie pre The kvôli kázať správu rovnakým spôsobom ako u pravých kresťanov z minulosti. Dom k domu a kde vôbec videl ľudí a dosiahla ľudí na celom svete s voľným SPRÁVY !!!!! VAŠE Viewpoint Russell nič nedokazuje !!!!! A to isté preškoľovať techniky, ktoré hovoríte JW'S použitím sú rovnaké, ktoré Ježiš použil !!! A ak máte postarané tak, aby došlo SERIOUS Pozrite sa na spôsob výučby Ježišom, ktorého povedal SME napodobniť !!! Ľudia z Ježišovej doby ho nazval DEVIL ctiteľ jeho posolstvo k tomuto dňu. Povedal tiež, že jeho ľudia nenávidieť, ležalo na prenasledovaného, ​​zosmiešňovaný, a zabíjaní za pokus vyhlásiť zbožného SPRÁVU. Čo je viac, než môžem povedať, ľudí ako tých, ktorí zostávajú na internete a nič lepšie na práci, než položil ľudia, ktorí sa aspoň pokúsiť žiť zbožný život podľa toho, čo je vlastne napísané v Biblii. Vaši ľudia vždy chcú omieľať všetkých vecí, ktoré si myslíte, že sú negatívne O JW'S ale nikdy hovoriť o pozitívne, dobré veci robia. Rovnako ako ľudia v prvom storočí POČAS Ježišovej dobe. Ochotu, aby šli von a dostávať DVERÍ narazila A v čase fyzické útoky, BEZ odplata späť. Vedel som, že stará svedectvo, že za svoje názory doslova asfaltových operený a beh mimo mesto. Iná žena mala ACID hodená na HER ALL pre dodávanie správy z Biblie, ktorá hovoríte NIE JE CHRISTIAN. Bol som na zhromaždení v Illinois a vedel, že človek, ktorý bol jedným OSOBNE ňou a jej manželom. Zistili, diamantový náhrdelník, čo zostalo niekde vonku. Nevedeli, čo s tým robiť tak, aby sa modlil k _______. A uhasiť reklama, ktorá našli nezvestné náhrdelník a ich počet je nazývajú. Niekto by im hovoria a chcel požiadať ich, aby POPIS náhrdelníka. SOME ležali na ne. PAK žena menom a dokonale opísal náhrdelník a kde to bolo vľavo. Keď to urobila. Poznali modlitbou bola zodpovedaná. Tá žena EVEN chcel dať odmenu, ktorá nebola prijatá. Namiesto toho požiadal, aby sa nabudúce JW pochádza k dverám im načúvať. A ona nadšení, povedala, že. Ak JW'S nie sú kresťania, tak kto sú. Možno, že skutočným problémom je, že JW sú praví kresťania nielen preto, že hovoria, že SÚ ukázať a nebojí sa na verejný hanby a kritiky alebo nedaj bože pokúsiť sa urobiť správnu vec.

    • Nemám svoje stanovisko k pánovi Karolovi Modlím sa, aby mal dobré úmysly. The King James nebol to jediná verzia Biblie, takže je to lož. The King James je však najstarší preklad v angličtine čo je najbližšie k pôvodnej gréčtiny na NT a hebrejčine / aramejčine na OT. K tomu, aby niekto získať dobré porozumenie a vytvoriť nový preklad musí byť schopný písať to od pôvodného textu. It would otherwise be like you telling me something and then an hour later I tell it to someone word for word. The translation will be missing something. As does the translation you read. I mean when I grew up a Witness I was not allowed to read any other translation. Is that where you are a man that is not allowed to read the Bible? What I choose to do was find out by myself. I am even going to school and have had the right to challenge what teachers are telling me. I may sometimes be right and other times wrong, but I have a since Adam and Eve right to choose from what I eat.

  5. Well look above my post Joel said it all, their is nothing really for me to say but give them a chance you would find that what the Witnesses teach is brought out in the bible their whole life is devoted to Gods word and they accept the discipline and console that God gives them through his word the bible, I am a bible student and been studying for 9 months now and it have been a trill just knowing what Jehovah God have in stored for us is faith strengthen. they are also very nice people and have very high morals they show self sacrificing love for one another, they hate the things that are detestable to Jehovah. I truly believe in my heart that the Witnesses is the mark of True Christians what other religions show the unity and love that the Witnesses shows? what other religion can preach in 235 lands? none only those who have Jehovah's holy spirit and I can say for sure the Jehovah's Witnesses has it with them

    • Its not about their love for one another and their unity, I'm a Baptist and I can truly say that their is a lot of love within our congregation. But not all are doers of the word same as any other religion. The issue is the doctrine. You have been studying for a whole nine months. Try reading Pauls letter to the Colossians, Philippians and to the Thessalonians. Get an understanding what Paul has to say about false doctrine and false prophecy. You will see that some people calling themselves Christians were mixing in some of their own beliefs causing confusion and sin. Usually starting with one man putting in his own twist of the Gospel message. They were not repeating the words that the Apostle Paul had been preaching to them. Now is Paul one of the bible writers inspired by the God? I think so, was he still one of the chosen writers of the Gospel message, sent to deliver the message by Jesus himself? Yes he was, so who then has the right to translate or change what was written by those godly men, if God inspired the writings and if Jesus led their walk. Jesus told his disciples where to go, how to go there, what they may expect. Those twelve were not the only ones following Jesus. They were the only ones called by Jesus. Big difference and the bible is specific about who is called. I once read that baseball and professional sports as a whole allowed blacks to play before the JW allowed them to practice with them. It is something I am going to research, but I am sure it is going to be hard to find.

      Praise God

  6. THE LAST DAYS

    On the whole Christians are about 85% united in there faith. There are few things they disagree on which are minor but issues believe me.

    But what is so amazing is God will wait untill The prophet Mohammed, or untill 1880 for Joseph Smith and Charles Taze Russell are about to tell us where we are going so wrong!

    And the thing is they all try to attack the person Of The Lord Jesus Christ.

    Next week someone else will come with a new Idea.

    We must be living in the last days with so many false prophets about.

  7. God created the heavens and the earth. God form 2 perfect humans name Adam & Eve God gave Adam & Eve choices (To be perfect you have to have choices & the will to do things) God send them to the fruit between good and evil and God told them to eat all the good fruits except one and so while they were eating Satan comes a long in that one tree and told them eat this fruit from this tree and you will be like God and so they did and then there was sin feeling ashamed,scared,shy . The devil told us from perfect but then God saved us also said in the bible we were adopted from him and told Jesus the son of God and bought us with it body and when we die we will be in heaven where God placed for us believers with Jesus the sons of God

    • I think the whole Jehovah religion makes no sense and is craazzyyyyyyy. You people allow UR kids to die before u will allow for blood transfusion and u believe in god, Jehovah whatever u call him??? What kinda parents would prefer for the child to die in name of some crazy believes. !!!!

  8. John 14:9 (NLT)- Jesus replied, “Have I been with you all this time, Phillip, and yet you still don't know who I am? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father! So why are you asking me to show him to you? Don't you believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words I speak are not my own, but my Father who lives in me does his work through me. Just believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me.”

    John 14:6 (NLT)-Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. If you had really known me, you would know who my Father is. From now on you do know Him and have seen Him!”

    John 1:1- In the beginning the was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    Everything points to Jesus, when questioning anything, head to the source of truth, the Bible. The Living Word of God, not a Bible written by a false prophet.

    Jesus loves you, He died for you. There is nothing we can ever do which separates us from His love, accept Him into your heart and inherit the kingdom of God.

    • Also… 26And God said: 'Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; Also john says that Jesus exsisted before he did ” he was before me: john 1:15

      Jesus' eternality and pre-existence in John's Gospel The pre-existence of Christ is clearly stated in John 1:1-4: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; bez neho nebolo urobené nič, čo by bolo vyrobené. In him was life.”

      This Word (Logos in Greek) became incarnate in Jesus. “The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us,” John tells us (verse 14). The eternal, uncreated Word who was God, and yet was with God as one of the Persons of the Godhead, became a human being. The Word “was” God (an eternal state) but “became” a human being. The Word never came into being, that is, he didn't “become” the Word. He always was the Word, or God. The Word's existence is open-ended. He has always existed. If not God how can he have always exsisted?

      Colossians 1:17 he is before all things and in Him all things hold together. If Jesus is not God how can he be before all things and how can He hold all things together?

      If we go back to Isaiah 41:4, 43:10 and 46:4, we can see the background for Jesus' reference to himself in John's Gospel as ego eimi (“I AM”). In Isaiah 41:4, God or Yahweh says: “I, the Lord…I am he.” In Isaiah 43:10 he says “I am he,” and later says, “'You are my witnesses,' declares the Lord, 'that I am God'” (verse 12). In 46:4, God (Yahweh) again refers to himself as “I am he.”

      The Hebrew phrase “I am he” is translated in the Greek version of the Holy Scriptures, the Septuagint (which the apostles used), by the phrase ego eimi in Isaiah 41:4; 43:10; and 46:4. Jesus' made the “I am he” statements as references to himself because they directly connected to God's (Yahweh's) statements about himself in Isaiah. John said, in effect, that Jesus was saying he was God in the flesh (a point also taught in John 1:1, 14, which introduces the Gospel and speaks of the Word's divinity and incarnation.)

  9. Jehovah, the One True God, is a statement that I agree with. Jehovah Jireh, Jehovah Rapha, Jehovah Nissi are all descriptions of the One True God of which I agree with. I believe that there is only One God based on what is written:

    Deuteronomy 32:39 'See now that I, I am He, And there is no god besides Me; It is I who put to death and give life. I have wounded and it is I who heal, And there is no one who can deliver from My hand.

    Every other god ever mentioned is only a god because people worship it. There is no life in any other god but only in the One True God!

    Exodus 34:14 —for you shall not worship any other god, for the Lord, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God—

    So either Jesus is the One True God from which salvation has come or salvation didn't come because He is not the One True God.

    Isaiah 43:11 “I, even I, am the Lord, And there is no savior besides Me.

    If you say that salvation comes through a god then you contradict all that is in the Old Testament (from which every disciple of Jesus taught from).

    To say that salvation came through a god and not God is a lie.

  10. Jehovah's Witnesses EXPOSED!

    Compiled and Edited by David J. Stewart

    The Jehovah Witnesses are a Satanic organization, based upon the occult of Freemasonry. Charles Taze Russell was a 33rd Degree Freemason; as was Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon cult. Carefully notice the Masonic cross at the upper left corner of the photo below…

    The picture below is the same scene as above, but without the zoom. Notice the illuminati pyramid. This is where Charles Taze Russell is buried.

    Below is a close-up of the inscription on the pyramid above. This is irrefutable proof that Jehovah Witnesses are inseparably linked toSatanic Freemasonry.

    Below: Notice the Freemasonry cross, the Knights Templar symbol. CT Russell was a Knights Templar.

    Below: Notice the Masonic cross in this Freemasonry meeting hall.

    The founders of both “faiths,” the Mormons and Jehovah's witnesses, were of the Illuminati bloodline. Charles Taze Russell, who founded theWatchtower Society (Jehovah Witnesses), was of the Illuminati Russell bloodline, which also founded the infamous Skull and Bones Society at Yale University. Charles Taze Russell was a Satanist, a pedophile according to his wife, and a friend of the Rothschilds. Indeed it was the Rothschilds who funded the Jehovah's Witness operation into being, along with other Illuminati bankers, through “contributions” by organizations like the Rothschild-controlled B'nai B'rith. This was proved in a court of law in 1922. One of the key people involved in this was Frank Goldman who later became President of B'nai B'rith. Why would an organization set up (in theory) to help Jewish people and promote the Jewish faith, be funding into existence the Jehovah's Witnesses??? I think the name Rothschild answers the question. Russell was also a high degree Freemason and Knights Templar. He promoted Zionism, another Rothschild creation (see Hitler was a Rothschild), on behalf of his friends and backers.

    In his book The Watchtower & the Masons Fritz Springmeier says:

    “It has always been disconcerting that the Masons are so adept at smokescreens. The leader of the Anti-Masonic political party in the 1830-1840's turned out to be a Mason. Both CT Russell and J. Rutherford printed material that was less than favorable to Freemasonry. And yet I now know that CT Russell was a Freemason, a Knights Templar. I also know that Rutherford worked intimately with Freemasons who were his good friends.”

    THE JEHOVAH'S WITNESS A DAUGHTER OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

    This Satanic society used Catholic Church Sources in order to produce its New World Translation. Westcott and Hort were two Satanists, founders of the Hermes Club and members of famed Russian witch Madam Blavatsky's Theosophy cult.

    Dr. Bill Grady said it best in his excellent book, Final Authority…

    “Wescott and Hort, were a pair of unsaved liberals whose open Vatican sympathies cast them as the consummate Jesuit plants.”

    “To regain her corner on the market, Rome created an elite paramilitary Gestapo unit that would make Himmler's SS appear like a Sunday school….sparking what historians call, the counter-Reformation. The infamous Society of Jesus was founded by Ignatius De Loyola in 1534, more commonly known as the Jesuits….”

    They are the most militant arm of papal power to this day. Their goals were to reclaim those that had left Catholicism and to attack the reliability of the Textus Receptus. They would use ANY METHOD to regain control including confiscation, treachery, torture and assassination. Jesuits will stop at nothing to bring the whole world under subjection to the Vatican. The Jesuits ploy was to entice Protestants back to Rome. They knew they could not bring anyone back into the bondage of Catholicism as long as true believers clung to the pure text. So the Jesuits plotted to replace our Bible with pro-Catholic readings of Jerome's Vulgate. This would cause the Protestant scholars to believe our text was unreliable, unreadable and not scholarly. Once programmed, the scholars would attack the pure text, all the while, believing they were doing God's service.”

    Westcott and Hort took two waste Catholic Sources (the Sinaiticus and the Vaticanus) to produce their waste version of the Bible, Nestle and the New World Translation of the Jehovah's Witnesses, written by Senior Jesuits Jose Maria Bover and A. Merkz, followed Westcott and Hort.

    From the Forward of the 1950 version NWT:

    “The original writings of the Christian Greek Scriptures, commonly called the New Testament, were inspired. No translation of these Sacred writings into another language, is inspired… The Greek text that we have used as a basis of our NW translation is the widely accepted Westcott and Hort text (1881) by reason of its admitted excellence. But we have also taken in to consideration other texts including that prepared by D. Eberhard Nestle and that compiled by the Spanish Jesuit scholar Jose Maria Bover and that by the other Jesuit scholar A. Merk…”

    9. *The Jehovah's Witnesses used Jesuits and Roman Catholic manuscripts to aid in the translation of the New World Translation.

    'GREEK TEXT: The Greek Text that we have used as the basis for the New World Translation is the widely accepted Westcott & Hort text (1881), by reason of its acknowledged excellence. But we have also taken into consideration other texts, including those prepared by D. Eberhard Nestle, the Spanish Jesuit scholar Jose Maria Bover, and another Jesuit scholar, A Merck. The UBS text of 1875 and the Nestle-Aland text of 1979 were cinsukted to update the critical apparatus of this edition.” The Forward, The Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures, 1985, page 8.

  11. JW's Watchtower Exposed by Jim Searcy

    JW's Watchtower Modern Old Heresy Brief History of the Watchtower The Most Perverse of the Version Perversions!! Misleading Revisions in the New World Translation More on The Most Perverse of the Version Perversions!!

    JW's Watchtower Modern Old Heresy

    The Jehovah's Witnesses and their Watchtower Bible and Tract Society is classic heresy that DENIES that Jesus Christ, Yeshua Messiah, is Creator as well as Redeemer, indeed very God come in the flesh.

    GNOSTICISM (Gnahs' tih kihsm) means special knowledge from the Greek word gnosis. This modern cult religion is just another version of ancient similar heresies which began to surface while the Apostle John was still alive. Cerinthus is typical of the ancient Gnostics before Russell and Rutherford. Cerinthus held that Jesus was merely human until his baptism, when he received a divine power that left him before the crucifixion. The main purpose for the Second Epistle of John was to refute the antichrist gnostic heresies already working before some of the more famous ancient gnostic heretics like Cerinthus and Arius. In later times, men such as Russel and Rutherford would continue to sell this religious gnosticism in various heretical cults.

    Arianism was a 4th-century Christian gnostic heresy named for Arius (c.250-c.336), a priest in Alexandria. Arius denied the full deity of the preexistent Son of God who became incarnate in Jesus Christ. He held that the Son, while divine and like God (“of like substance”), was created by God as the agent through whom he created the universe. Arius said of the Son, “there was a time when he was not.” Gnosticism is the modern designation for certain religious and philosophical perspectives, like the Jehovah's Witnesses and their Watchtower, for the specific systems of belief, characterized by these ideas. Such beliefs emerged in the second century and later. The term “gnosticism” is derived from the Greek word gnosis (knowledge) because secret knowledge was so crucial a doctrine in gnosticism.

    It only requires just simple honest scholarship, to see that the latter day gnostic heretics such as Russell, Rutherford, and the rest of the Watchtower gnostic heretics, simply expound the old gnostic heresies of people like Cerinthus and Arius. Rather than FAITH they embrace their special knowledge, gnosis. They will most certainly end up in the lake of fire that God created for the devil and his angels. It is not unloving to tell Jehovah's Witnesses that they are going to hell. This may be the most loving thing you can tell them. The Watchtower brand of gnostic heresy does not believe in hell. It is very truthful and loving to tell the Jehovah's Witness that their belief that hell does not exist in no way changes or effects the reality of hell.

    Ask, “WHAT IF they are wrong in their belief that hell does not exist?” Ask them what they will do when they die and realize the reality of hell. One's belief will not change the reality of hell.

    Irenaeus reported that one of the reasons John wrote his Gospel was to refute the views of Cerinthus, an early Gnostic. Over against the gnostic assertion that the true God would not enter our world, John stressed in his Gospel that Jesus was God's incarnate Son. Other interpreters of the New Testament understand gnosticism to be crucial at many other points in interpreting the New Testament.

    Although wide variations existed among the many gnostic sects in the details of systems, certain major features were common to most of them–the separation of the god of creation from the god of redemption. They divide Christians into categories with one group being superior. They stress their own secret teachings which only divine persons could comprehend. They stress the exaltation of their knowledge over faith. The true church of Jesus Christ has always rejected such teachings as heretical, but many people have continued to find attraction in varieties of these ideas.

    Strong religious demonic spirits are always associated with gnostic heresies. Always be prepared to shout Blood of Yeshua, when dealing with them. When in doubt — shout — Blood of Yeshua! It is wise to have someone praying and pleading the Blood of Yeshua and binding the religious spirits in the name and power of the Blood of Yeshua when dealing with these deeply bound and deceived people.

    Brief History of the Watchtower

    The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (the organization run by the Governing Body of the Jehovah's Witnesses) claims that it is the sole channel of information between God and humanity. They base this claim on a complicated, Bible-based chronology devised by the Adventist NH Barbour in 1875.

    The founder of Jehovah's Witnesses, Charles Taze Russell, obtained many of his ideas from Adventists and others who speculated in Bible prophecy. In 1884, Russell founded the Watchtower Society, which became the legal corporation used by the International Bible Students, the early name for Jehovah's Witnesses. Russell was a high level freemason whose god is Lucifer. Quite naturally, then, Russell and his JW's would teach that hell is not real.

    The chronology stated that Jesus had invisibly returned to earth in 1874 to set up his kingdom, and that in 1914, at the end of the “Gentile Times”, Jesus would come to judge the earth and annihilate the wicked.

    When nothing supernatural happened in 1914, the Watchtower Society started transferring all of the doctrines about 1874 to 1914. They explained that Christ's kingdom had been set up invisibly in 1914, and that although secular governments were still in place, their rule was no longer valid. Based on the Society's writings, Jehovah's Witnesses looked forward to momentous events in the year 1918.

    When nothing supernatural happened in 1918, the Watchtower Society looked forward to momentous events in 1925.

    When nothing supernatural happened in 1925, the Watchtower Society lost three quarters of its members.

    Charles Taze Russell had been held to be the “Faithful and Wise Servant” of Matthew 24:45-47, but by 1928 the Society applied that to its leaders. They taught that the scripture was a prophecy, and that in 1918 they had been chosen by Jesus “over all that he hath”. Since they believed Jesus was ruling the world invisibly, they claimed for themselves a position as God's channel of communication with mankind.

    The Society checked its predictions and explained that all of the prophecies in Matthew 24 and 25 would take place within a “single generation” (Matthew 24:34), so the time of “the end of the world” (Matthew 24:3) could be delayed as long as 30 or 40 years. In 1929, (for $30,000,000) the Society built a mansion (“Beth Sarim”) to house the resurrected prophets, who were expected to arrive soon. (When the “resurrected prophets” did not show, Judge Rutherford moved in. The old Judge then lived in what in no way could be called modest housing.) “Beth Sarim” was eventually sold. It is not likely that any of the proceeds of Judge Rutherford's palace ever made it back into the hand of the poor pioneers that were fleeced to provide that mansion for him.

    The new definition of “generation” promised momentous events during the 1940's.

    When nothing supernatural had happened by 1945, the Society extended the meaning of “generation” to 80 years (the maximum lifespan of a typical man, as explained in Psalms 90:10). Although 1914 plus 80 equals 1994, in 1966 the Watchtower Society decided that the year 1975 was “significant”, because they had calculated that it marked the end of six thousand years since the creation of Adam and Eve. Watchtower publications strongly hinted that “the end” would come in 1975.

    When nothing supernatural happened in 1975, the Watchtower Society lost many members. It explained that the time between Adam's creation and Eve's creation was not known, so the 1975 date was only speculative.

    In 1980, the Society suggested that the Witnesses and the publishing staff had been overly enthusiastic about the “possibility” of Armageddon in 1975. This failed to lure back thousands who had left, but regular door-to-door preaching restored the rapid growth the Witnesses had enjoyed since the “significance” of 1975 had been announced.

    When the year 1994 arrived (1914 plus 80 years), nothing supernatural happened. The Society had not ascribed any special significance to 1994, but the “generation” issue was becoming awkward. The ranks of the Society's special members (the 144,000 who were “anointed”, based on an interpretation of Revelation) were dying out. The claim that Jesus had appointed the Watchtower Society special status in 1918 was becoming hard to defend.

    In 1995, the Watchtower Society decided that “generation” did not mean a physical generation (ie 80 years) but meant “age”, as in “era”. This extended the “end times” indefinitely, although when the last of the 144,000 special members die out, the Society will have to be run by regular members.

    A close inspection of Matthew 24:34 in context makes the “age” interpretation hard to understand, since Jesus speaks of the generation “passing away” (which sounds like a physical event). The Watchtower Society states that it alone understands that “generation” means “age” because it has special status, which was granted to it in 1918.

    The Watchtower magazine, published by the Society, has said the end is “soon”, in every issue since it was first printed … in 1879.

    Footnotes

    The Society did not consider 1994 “special”, because the end was supposed to occur within the time of a typical human lifespan (as “generation” was then interpreted), not at the end of a generation. Here are some quotations from Watchtower literature that illustrate their position prior to November 1995:

    Watchtower 1968/12/01 p. 715: … did not Jesus say that this generation will not pass away until all things are fulfilled? A generation, according to Psalm 90:10, is from seventy to eighty years. The generation that witnessed the end of the Gentile Times in 1914 does not have many more years left. – Luke 21:24, 32-36.

    Watchtower 1967/12/15 p. 751: … the expression “this generation” was used by Jesus to mark a very limited period of time, the life-span of members of a generation of people living during the time that certain epoch-making events occurred. According to Psalm 90:10, that life-span could be of seventy years or even of eighty years. Into this comparatively short period of time must be crowded all the things that Jesus prophesied in answer to the request for a “sign when all these things are destined to come to a conclusion.” (Mark 13:4)

    Awake! masthead from March 1988 until November 1995: Most importantly, this magazine builds confidence in the Creator's promise of a peaceful and secure new world before the generation that saw the events of 1914 passes away.

    The Most Perverse of the Version Perversions!!

    Did you know that The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society refuses to give their followers the names and credentials of the Translation Committee of their Bible, The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (see pg. 258 of Jehovah's Witnesses in the Divine Purpose). This is more important than the Watchtower Society will admit since the New World Translation Committee has deceived many in their perversion of the Bible in the following ways:

    They have invented non-existent rules of Greek grammar and then proceeded to follow these rules only when necessary to support their peculiar perverted gnostic heresy of the old arian theology. A clear example of this is John 1:1, where the Translation Committee has rendered the Greek “and the Word was a god”. We cite the appendix of another Watchtower publication (The Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures, page 1158), for their footnote concerning John 1:1:

    “The reason for their rendering the Greek word Divine and not God is that it is the Greek noun Theos without the definite article…” May we call the Watchtower Society's attention to verses 6, 12 and 13 (also found in the first chapter of the Gospel of John). Here the Greek noun Theos appears without the definite article (as in John 1:1) and yet the Translating Committee has translated each verse as (Jehovah) God.

    Another example of non-existent rules followed only when needed to support their theology is found in the forward of their Kingdom Interlinear Translation (pg. 18). Here we are taught how to restore the Divine name. We are instructed that we can render the Greek words “Kyrios” (Lord) and “Theos” (God) into Divine name by determining if the Christian (Greek) writers have quoted from the Hebrew Scriptures (Old Testament). If so, we can render “Kyrios” (Lord) and “Theos” (God) as Jehovah God.

    At this point it may be worthwhile to point out the very high likelihood that “Jehovah” is a nonsense word. In the original Hebrew there were no vowels, and no difference between upper and lower case (capital and small letters). Hellenistic Christians choose to mark the respect by inserting the vowel, and capitalizing the first letter, neither of which are in the original. Jewish people mark the respect by capitalizing the first letter (which is not in the original), and indicating the vowel is not there in the original. One extra thing about this method is that if Gd is never written in full, no-one can deface the word!

    G-d's personal name is spelt Yod Heh Vav Heh in the Hebrew. This approximates to YHV H. The vowels were not written until about the thirteenth century CE G-d's personal name was only spoken in the temple on Yom Kippur after the High Priest had entered the Holy of Holies, and resulted in those hearing falling prone and reciting the second phrase of the Shema, “Blessed be His name (HaShem) whose glorious kingdom shall be for ever and ever.” During the Babylonian captivity His personal Name was never spoken at all, there was no access to the temple. Upon return to Jerusalem 70 years later, no-one was sure how to pronounce His name, so the word Adonai was substituted, which means 'L-rd'. Alternatively haShem was used which means 'the Name', especially when the word Adonai immediately preceded G-d's personal name.

    When the vowel points were added, over a thousand years later, the vowels were not actually known. The vowels for Adonai were used instead. In England at about that time, and for some time later, there was a great persecution of the Jews, and they were driven out of the country, killed, or forced to abandon Judaism. When the English versions of the Bible were becoming popular (Wycliffe, Tyndale et al.) there was no significant Jewish presence to speak of in England. So the gentiles, in ignorance, assumed that G-d's personal Name had the vowels of Adonai in it. It would be like taking the consonants of your first name and using the vowels of your last name.

    Some people still believe these were the correct vowels. However it is more likely that they are not the right vowels, and no-one can be sure. To avoid being disrespectful by using a nonsense word to refer to Gd, most Jewish people will not refer to Him as Jehovah or Yahweh, the English equivalents of this nonsense word. Some regard the idea of referring to the Almighty One by a nonsense word as blasphemous, and there is a good case for viewing things this way. Always remind the JW that most likely Jehovah is a nonsense word.

    Once again, the Watchtower “rule” is avoided by the Translation Committee as they translate Philippians 2:11. The Apostle Paul quotes Isaiah 45:23 as he states that “every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Jehovah God (Kyrios) to the glory of God the Father.”

    The Translation Committee has made up a Greek tense that is non-existent. We cite the 1950 edition of their “New World Translation of the Christian Greek Scriptures” rendering of John 8:58 where they have translated “ego eimi” as “I have been” and state that it is “properly rendered in the perfect indefinite tense” in the Greek language. There is NO “perfect indefinite tense” in any language! After the Watchtower Society was informed of this fact, they made the change to the “perfect tense indicative” but as the Greek student knows, it is present tense and is correctly translated “I AM” (see Exodus 3:14).

    They have added words to Scripture which changes the meaning of the texts to agree with their theology. Notice the Watchtower's rendering of Colossians 1:16,17, where the word “other” has been added four times to the text, completely changing its meaning. When Paul wrote those passages that the Son created all things, it is obvious that the Son was not himself created. The Watchtower, however, believes that the Son is also a created being and has therefore added “other” – not found in the Greek Biblical text at all – to make it appear that the Son is also a creature. As mentioned before, the Translation Committee has added the word “a” to John 1:1 to make the Son a creature rather than God Himself. Take note also of the same deceitfulness displayed in Philippians 2:9 where the word “other” is again added, when it is not found or even suggested in the original Greek.

    The men who comprised the Translation Committee had no adequate schooling or background to function as critical Bible translators. The self-appointed “scholars” who made up this Translation Committee were: NH Knorr, FW Franz, AD Schroeder, GD Gangas and M. Henschel. Aside from President Franz, none of the Translation Committee members knew Biblical Greek or Hebrew and Franz's ability is open to serious question. This came out in the Scottish Court Sessions in November, 1954 (just four years after the release of the Watchtower Scriptures). The following exchange of question and answers between the attorney and Franz is taken from the trial transcript:

    Q. Have you also made yourself familiar with Hebrew?

    A. Yes …

    Q. So that you have substantial linguistic apparatus at your command?

    A. Yes, for use in my biblical work.

    Q. I think you are able to read and follow the Bible in Hebrew, Greek, Latin, Spanish, Portuguese, German and French?

    A. Yes … (Pursuer's Proof, pg. 7)

    Q. You, yourself, read and speak Hebrew, do you?

    A. I do not speak Hebrew.

    Q. You do not?

    A. No

    Q. Can you, yourself, translate that into Hebrew?

    A. Which?

    Q. That fourth verse of the second chapter of Genesis.

    A. You mean here?

    Q. Yes.

    A. No, I wouldn't attempt to do that. (Pursuer's Proof, pgs. 102,103).

    What Franz failed to do was a simple exercise which an average first or second year Hebrew student in any seminary would have no difficulty (see further, “We left Jehovah's Witnesses – A non-Prophet Organization” – Edmond C. Gruss, pg. 59-101). It is also interesting to note that no Greek scholar with any credentials will endorse the New World Translation.

    Bill Centnar, in 1954 (while still a Jehovah's Witness working at Bethel), was assigned to interview a well known Bible translator, Dr. Edgar J. Goodspeed, asking him for his evaluation and recommendation of the New World Translation of the Hebrew Scriptures. Dr. Goodspeed replied: “No, I'm afraid that I could not do that. The grammar is regrettable…”

    We should also state that the theology brought forth in this translation is a fatal distortion of Biblical truth. It is DEADLY and I would even say DEMONIC distortion. It will most certainly lead its adherents to the eternal lake of hell fire in which they believe does not exist. Does the belief that hell does not exist in any way effect the reality of hell. WHAT IF hell does really exist? What if our wrong beliefs cause us to end up in hell?

    We ask you not to put your trust in such a perverse translation of Holy Scripture or in the Society that has deceived many in the writing of it. Christians profess that faith and trust be placed in the Lord Jesus Christ. Yeshua said that unless you believe that HE IS the Eternal God (Ego Eimi – “I AM”), you will die in your sins (John 8:24). It is because of the danger of the perversion of the New World Translation of Holy Scriptures that this warning has been written. Our concern is for the Jehovah's Witnesses to come to know The Truth. The Truth is The LORD Jesus Christ, Yeshua The Messiah.

    More on The Most Perverse of the Version Perversions!!

    Misleading Revisions in the New World Translation

    The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (WTBTS) has inserted numerous changes into a proper translation of the Bible in an effort to validate the non-Christian doctrines of the Jehovah's Witnesses (JWs). Consequently, they claim that their New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (NWT) is superior to all others.

    In the examples below, the Authorized English Scriptures, the only not copyrighted Bible. The KJV, 1611 King James Version, is the only Bible that represents the 7th purification spoken in Psalm 12:6. Like Dr. Frank Logsdon, co-founder and chief-editor of the New American Standard Version confessed before he died: “You can say the Authorized Version (KJV) is absolutely correct. How correct? 100%correct!. . . I believe the Spirit of Gd led the translators of the Authorized Version. If you must stand against everyone else, stand.”

    The second quotation in each example is derived from a post-1989 edition of the NWT (WTBTS of Pennsylvania and International Bible Students Association, c. 1984). References to actual Hebrew and Greek words are derived from Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible (Thomas Nelson, c. 1990), the Greek-English New Testament (Christianity Today, c. 1975) and Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words (McDonald, unabridged ed., nd)

    Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

    “Spirit of God” changed to “God's active force.”

    The revision modifies the original noun with a more impersonal form as the JWs reject the orthodox Christian belief in the personality of the Holy Spirit.

    Exodus 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

    “I AM” changed to “I shall prove to be.”

    The revision clouds the connection between God's self proclaimed title and Jesus' proclamation of being the same in John 8:58, as the JW rejects the deity of Jesus.

    Numbers 1:52 And the children of Israel shall pitch their tents, every man by his own camp, and every man by his own standard, throughout their hosts.

    “By his own standard” changed to “by his [three-tribe] division.”

    The Hebrew word degal translated as “standard” literally means flag or banner. Since the JWs regard saluting a flag as an act of idolatry, the text has been altered according to their doctrinal bias. (Same revision found in Num. 2:2, 3, 10, 18, 25; 10: 14, 18, 22, 25.)

    Isaiah 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

    “Neither shall there be after me” changed to “after me there continued to be none.”

    The original future tense of the verb indicates that there will never be another being sharing in God's divinity. The altered tense suggests credibility to the JW doctrine of Jesus' becoming a “mighty god” while still being less than Jehovah in nature. (See the John 1: I discussion below for another expression of this JW distortion.)

    Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

    “The spirit shall return” changed to “the spirit itself returns.”

    The passage indicates the return of a human spirit to God after death. Since the JWs believe in an unconscious state after death, “itself' has been inserted to suggest a more impersonal reference to spirit.

    Matthew 2:11 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.

    “Fell down, and worshipped him” changed to “did obeisance to it”

    The JWs evade recognizing Jesus as worthy of worship as a divine being by altering the form of honor that he receives from men and angels. The Greek word proskuneo literally means “worship.” The use of “obeisance” is a NWT adaptation. (Same revision found in Matt. 8:2; 9:18, 14:33; 15:25; 28:9, 17; Mark 5:6; 15:19; Luke 24:52; John 9:38; Heb. 1:6.)

    Matthew 5:19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

    “Least in the kingdom of heaven” changed to “least in relation to the kingdom of the heaven.”

    The passage indicates that a disobedient believer who sins can still find forgiveness and eternal life. The JWs believe heaven is reserved for only 144,000 specially designated servants of God. The revision suggests more separation between these groups through a status hierarchy.

    Matthew 25:46 And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

    “Everlasting punishment” changed to “everlasting cutting-off.”

    The Greek word kolasis translated “punishment” indicates continuous torment, but the NWT revision suggests “termination,” as the JWs promote the doctrine of annihilationism regarding condemned souls.

    Mark 1:4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.

    “Baptism of repentance” changed to “baptism [in symbol] of repentance. ”

    Nothing in the original Greek text justifies the insertion of “in symbol.” The revision undermines the significance of John the Baptist's ministry, the Jewish meaning of baptism and the Christian sacrament of baptism in contrast to the more regimented JW baptism requirements.

    Luke 12:8 Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God:

    “Confess me before men” changed to “confesses union with me.”

    The addition of “union” suggest something more than what the original Greek actually states and adds further credibility to the NWT distortion presented in John 6:56 below.

    Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

    'To day shalt thou be with me” changed to “I tell you today, You will be with me.”

    Jesus assured the thief on the cross that their spirits would soon enter the spiritual/heavenly realm together. As the JWs REJECT the belief in the conscious survival of the human spirit after death, their revision suggests that “today” deals with the time of the statement rather than the relocation of their spirits.

    John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    “Word was God” changed to “Word was a god.”

    The JWs reject the orthodox Christian belief in the deity of Jesus. The revision asserts that Jesus was someone other than God Himself.

    John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

    “Believe” changed to “exercise faith.”

    The orthodox Christian doctrine of spiritual justification and rebirth before God by belief in Jesus is in conflict with the JW doctrine of salvation by works (ie, obedience to their organization). The revision attempts to describe salvation as a continuous process rather than a radical encounter and transition (Same revision found in John 3:16, 18; 6:29; Rom. 4:3, 10:4, 9, 10.)

    John 6:56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him.

    “Dwelleth in me” changed to “remains in union with me.”

    The mystical union between the individual human spirit and the Spirit of Jesus is obscured by restructuring “in” with a compound form. The substitution implies more separation between a Christian and Jesus. (Same revision found in John 14:20; Rom. 8:1, 2, 10; 12:5; 2 Cor. 5:17; Gal. 3:28; Eph. 1:13*; 2:10, 13, 15, 21, 22; 3:6; Col. 1:14*, 16*, 27; 2:6, 10*, 11, 12*; 3:3; 1 Thes. 4:16; 5:18; 1 John 3:24; 4:4; 5:20. Verses with an asterisk (*) indicate where the revision uses “by means of” or “in relationship to” rather than “IN Christ.”)

    John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

    “I am” changed to “I have been.”

    Same intent as described in Exodus 3:14 above.

    John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

    “Because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him” changed to “beholds it or knows it.”

    The revision ignores the context of the pronoun with the Comforter role in the preceding verse to deny the personality of the Holy Spirit.

    John 17:5 And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was.

    “Glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was” changed to “glorify me alongside yourself with the glory that I had alongside you.”

    The original text reflects the shared deity of God the Father and Jesus before the creation of the world, but the revision suggests different natures as implied by different states of glory.

    John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

    “Father, art in me” changed to “are in union with me.”

    The original statement by Jesus indicates his shared deity with the Father. The revision undermines this by suggesting a greater separation between them.

    Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams:

    “Pour out of my Spirit” changed to “pour out some of my spirit.”

    The revision evades recognition of the Holy Spirit and His activity at Pentecost by suggesting an impersonal force activated to a more limited degree by God.

    Acts 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

    “Breaking of bread” changed to “taking of meals.”

    The passage demonstrates the frequency of the communion sacrament among the earliest Christians. The revision is an attempt to disguise this practice as the JWs teach that communion is reserved for only the 144,000 special saints. (Same revision found in Acts 20:7.)

    Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

    “Be saved” changed to “get saved.”

    The revision avoids recognizing that an individual commitment to Jesus provides immediate and complete salvation, as the JWs believe in an alternative salvation as prescribed by their organization. (Same revision found in Acts 16:30-31.)

    Acts 10:36 The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)

    “Lord of all” changed to “Lord of all [others].”

    The revision suggests that even though Jesus is highly honored, he is still one among many of God's created beings. (Similar revisions found in Rom. 8:32; Phil. 2:9; Col. 1: 16-17.)

    Romans 2:29 But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

    “In the Spirit” changed to “by spirit.”

    Although the definite article 'the” does not literally appear in the Greek, it is implied by the form that (pneuma) appears in. The revision, however, translates pneuma in a more abstract form to evade the reality of the Holy Spirit. (Same revision found in Rom. 15:19; Eph. 2:22; 3:5; Titus 3:5; James 2:26; 2 Peter 1:21.)

    Romans 8:23a And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit,

    “Have the firstfruits of the Spirit” changed to “have the firstfruits, namely the spirit.”

    This represents another form of disguising the separate personality of the Holy Spirit as in Rom. 2:29 above. The original text refers to the derivatives of the Spirit, but the revision identifies the spirit as a derivative.

    Romans 8:23b even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

    “The redemption of our body” changed to “the release from our bodies by ransom.”

    This revision avoids the suggestion that there is continuity of either body or soul after death. Their teaching that the soul ceases to exist at the death of the body precludes the ownership of, or relationship to, a body that must be redeemed.

    Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

    “All things” changed to “all his works.”

    The revision undermines the sovereignty of God by suggesting that He controls only the things He is directly involved in doing.

    Romans 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

    “For whom he did foreknow” changed to “those whom he gave his first recognition.”

    The revision obscures the nature of God's knowledge and power as a first recognition may or may not be foreknowledge.

    Romans 9:5 Whose are the fathers, and of whom as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen.

    “Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever. Amen. ” changed to “Christ, [sprang] according to the flesh: God who is over all, [be] blessed forever.”

    The direction proclamation that Christ is God is obscured by the altered text.

    Romans 10:13 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

    “God” changed to “Jehovah.”

    This revision obscures the fact that the God referred to in verse 13 is the same God called Jesus in verse 9. Since the JWs reject the deity of Jesus, the revision is made accordingly.

    The Greek word, kurios, translated “Lord” has been revised to “Jehovah” over 200 times in the NWT. The JWs insist that this is the only valid title for God, even though Greek-speaking Jews used “Lord” and “God” in place of “Yahweh” (the source of “Jehovah”) throughout their Septuagint translation of the Old Testament. Furthermore, the Bible contains dozens of names for God other than Lord, Yahweh, or Jehovah.

    Romans 13:1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.

    “For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” changed to “authorities stand placed in their relative positions by God.”

    Since the JW regard saluting a flag, military service and similar forms of submission to government as idolatry, they have added words to the text to weaken the proclaimed authority of government.

    1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

    “Your body is a temple of the Holy Ghost” changed to “the body of YOU people is [the] temple of the holy spirit.”

    To avoid recognition of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the individual believer, the revision modifies “body” to a more collective form in harmony with the opposing JW doctrine.

    1 Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.

    “That Rock was Christ” changed to “that rock-mass meant the Christ.”

    The passage depicts the preincarnate Jesus exhibiting his divine nature by being present many centuries earlier. This revision tries to conceal his eternal nature with a more figurative interpretation of “the Rock.”

    1 Corinthians 12:11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.

    “As severally as he will” changed to “as it wills.”

    The NWT finds many ways to disguise the personality of the Holy Spirit. In this case the third person pronoun exercising individual conscience and will is replaced with an impersonal pronoun.

    1 Corinthians 14:14-16 For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.

    Else when thou shalt bless with the spirit, how shall he that occupieth the room of the unlearned say Amen at thy giving of thanks, seeing he understandeth not what thou sayest?

    “Spirit” changed to “[gift of the] spirit.”

    Like several other Biblical passages, this one indicates the distinctive presence of the human spirit as distinguished from the mind and body. The JWs evade these distinctions and try to disguise them with related revisions.

    1 Corinthians 15:2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.

    “By which also ye are saved (this gospel)” changed to “through which YOU are also being saved.”

    Similar to the Acts 16:30 revision above, this one again obscures the completeness of salvation by grace. The JW's salvation exists as an extended process (“being saved”) with the outcome being uncertain until final judgment before Jehovah.

    Galatians 6:18 Brethren, the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.

    “Your spirit” changed to “the spirit YOU [show].”

    Similar to the I Cor. 14 revision above, this one attempts to obscure the reality of the individual human spirit by presenting it more as an attitude of action than an entity.

    Philippians 1:23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:

    “To depart, and to be with Christ” changed to “the releasing and the being with Christ.”

    Paul's eagerness indicates that the believer's spirit goes immediately into Christ's presence at death. The revision suggests that death and being with Christ are two separate steps in an extended process, as the JWs believe in soul sleep (ie, the unconscious state of the human spirit awaiting the resurrection).

    Colossians 1:19 For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;

    “All fullness” changed to “fullness.”

    The definite Greek article (to), translated “all,” indicates that Jesus shares the Father's divine nature as also shown in Col. 2:9. The revisions evade the truth by concealing the similarity of the two passages.

    Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

    “All the fulness of the Godhead” changed to “the fullness of the divine quality.”

    The Greek theotes, translated “deity,” literally means divine essence or divinity. As the JWs reject the divine nature of Jesus, a revision is inserted to suggest that Jesus is limited to only divine-like characteristics.

    I Timothy 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

    “The Spirit” changed to “the inspired utterance.”

    This revision attempts to obscure the reality and activity of the Holy Spirit by representing it as a message instead of an entity. (Similar revisions found in 1 John 4:1, 3, 6 with “expression” being utilized in place of “utterance.”)

    Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

    “Great God and our Savior Jesus Christ” changed to “the great God and of [the] Savior of us, Christ Jesus.”

    Similar to the Rom. 9:5 revision shown above, a distinct proclamation of Jesus as God is obscured by the altered text. (Similar rewording also found in 2 Peter 1:1.)

    Hebrews 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

    “Thy throne, 0 God” changed to “God is your throne.”

    The revision avoids addressing the Son, Jesus, as God to validate the JWs' rejection of his divine nature.

    Hebrews 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

    “The eternal Spirit” changed to “an everlasting spirit.”

    Similar to the Rom. 2:29 revision above, the switching of the article before the adjective represents the work of the Holy Spirit in a more indirect/ impersonal manner.

    Hebrews 12:9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live?

    “Father of spirits” changed to “Father of our spiritual life.”

    Similar to the I Cor. 14 revision shown above, this one tries to obscure the distinctive reality of human spirits by replacing them with a more abstract noun.

    Hebrews 12:23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

    “The spirits of just men made perfect” changed to “the spiritual lives of righteous ones.”

    This revision represents the same noun-switching as described in Heb. 12:9 above.

    Hebrews 12:28 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:

    “We receiving a kingdom” changed to “we are to receive a kingdom.”

    An orthodox Christian understanding of the Kingdom recognizes it as primarily established through Jesus' victorious death, then further through post-resurrection displays of his power, and perpetually through the addition of new believers into God's family. The JWs teach that Jesus' Kingdom did not begin until his invisible return in 1914. The form of the Greek word for “receiving” (paralambano) implies a current condition, but the revision suggests a future event according to the JW doctrine.

    1 Peter 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

    “Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify” changed to “the spirit in them was indicating concerning Christ.”

    Another example of the supernatural presence of Jesus in the life of a Christian is obscured again by this revision as the JW doctrinal view presents him as more limited.

    I Peter 3:18-19 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

    “By the Spirit: By which also he went” changed to “in the spirit. In this [state].”

    Similar to several examples presented above, in this passage the presence and personality of the Holy Spirit is obscured with a more abstract representation of the Holy Spirit to accommodate the JW doctrine.

    Jude 19 These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

    “Having not the Spirit.” changed to “having spirituality.”

    Similar to Gal. 6:18 above, this revision attempts to obscure the separate presence of the Holy Spirit.

    Revelation 3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

    “These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;” changed to “beginning of the creation by God.”

    The altered prepositions distract from the sovereignty of Jesus indicated in the passage and suggests that the real power of creation was accomplished through the Father, as the JWs believe that Jesus is a created being.

    Approximately one-fourth of the verse citations above were derived from The New World Translation on Trial by Robert Bowman in the Christian Research Journal, 11: 3 (Winter/Spring, 1989), p.20. The rest of this inventory was compiled from Andy Bjorklund's comparisons of doctrinally critical verses. There are many more examples of Biblical distortions by the JWs than this short summary. This summary should illustrate the hell bent and hell bound destiny of all tied and bound to the JW's watchtower. The JW's would be just as well served believing in Harvey the 6 foot invisible rabbit as the fabricated Jesus they profess. The only hope for the deceived JW or anyone is to get to KNOW The Truth, Yeshua the Messiah.

    John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

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

    The duped JW needs to get to KNOW the REAL Jesus or they will soon enough get to know the reality of hell.

    • Wow thank you for writing so much and to defend the Word of God and stand up for truth! Jesus was ruling the world invisibly, they claimed for themselves a position as God's channel of communication with mankind. This also sounds like catholic church who says the pope is the communicator of God.

  12. Ok listen up you hypocrite's. Why would you down shame another religion when we haven't necessarily done anything to you? You taunt and shame our religion, But did we slice off your head like David did goliath? No. Stop talking about each other. EVERYONE HAS THEIR RIGHT TO CHOOSE THEIR OWN RELIGION! Stop judging us for you have no right to do so, especially since anyone can say their religion is right. Just stand to reason that JW is one thing and Christianity is another.

    • Jesus said he is Gods Son and that he and his Father are one. He never lied. He did not say he was Michael the Archangel. It states in the Bible that you are not to add to or take away anything written thereof. JW is a cult, NOT a religion.They are decievers and racists as well. Look it up for yourself. Jesus said, No one comes to the Father except thru belief in me.Period.
