Jehovah's Witnesses and The Name JehovahClearly, the Watchtower Society has taught one can NOT understand the bible apart from their teachings, which therefore are needed to take in knowledge to get everlasting life! If you believe such LIES, you will be hooked and be under their slavish control to never escape:
LEARN What The Single LIE Is That Holds The Sincere JW To The Watchtower?
How To Answer Jehovah's Witnesses Effectively
What does it take to effectively answer a Jehovah's Witness (or Jahova's Witness as they say in certain parts of the world) to the place that he is shaken from his spiritual delusions? It will take exposure to God's truth plus, on the part of the Jehovah's Witness, a heart which is open to Scripture. Jehovah's witnesses beliefs seem to be set in stone. Many of the Jehovah's witnesses are so indoctrinated and their lives are so wrapped up with their religion that they refuse to consider the evidence which any Christian may offer, even if it comes from their own literature! They know they would lose it all if they became a Bible-defined Christian since those who leave the organization are considered apostates and shunned by others, even their own natural family members. Hence, the price seems too great for many, but not all of them. Some Jehovah's witnesses do come to salvation. Christians must try to win them to God, for they desperately need eternal life. [Eternal life is ONLY in the Lord Jesus Christ (1 John 5:12,13) and NOT any organization or denomination. Eternal life is also spiritual life, which Christians have now this side of the grave before their physical death. These are true Christian beliefs.]
Some Jehovah's Witnesses are answered with a simple Scripture, which they don't know exists. At other times it might take showing them their own false teachings and false prophecies of the Watchtower Society. Never forget, the real culprit is the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (jw.org) located in Brooklyn, New York (and sometime in the future will move to Warwick, NY). That is their headquarters, who the members think is the one and only Jehovah's Organization where God's truth is found! Thus, all the doctrinal decisions are made there, which will filter throughout the world through their members. That is why the Jehovah's Witnesses want potential converts to read and accept the teachings found in their many Watchtower Society publications. In truth, they don't have Bible studies! They have Watchtower book studies where potential converts are jumped around from partial Scripture to partial Scripture to arrive at their predetermined conclusions.
The Watchtower Society is NOT Jehovah's Organization
The history of the Jehovah's Witnesses from its founder Charles Taze Russell on is filled with a long list of failed false prophecies, changed doctrines and ruined lives! The organization headquarters is a clear and definite example of a false prophet, a ferocious wolf in sheep's clothing:
Charles Taze Russell and JW HistoryWatch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. (Mat 7:15)Hence, the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society is a dangerous enemy to God's truth and to SOULS! They are diabolical deceivers and have gone so far as to conveniently produce their own so-called translation of the Bible, which they call The New World Translation. The foremost feature of the Jehovah's Witness Bible is supposed to be the restoration of the divine name Jehovah, but in reality it is a dark perversion of God's word where words are changed, added or omitted to alter the meaning according to Watchtower doctrine! WARNING: Do NOT be influenced by the NWT. It is NOT reliable or consistent. It is a satanic tool and on a par with the Book of Mormon and Koran. So, is God's name Jehovah? Not according to the evidence! (Keep reading.)
JWs Falsely Claim To Be In The Truth (PDF print free tract)The Jehovah's Witnesses who come to our doors and who are seen on the streets holding up their magazines are victims and slaves of the Watchtower Society. They have bought into the single lie that God's truth can only be found through the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society's materials. Because the Jehovah's Witnesses have been deceived with that single concept they, therefore, rely solely on materials from the Watchtower Society for the correct understanding and interpretation of the Bible. They also think, by doing that, they are taking in knowledge for everlasting life! (NOTE: it was the Watchtower who taught the Jehovah's Witnesses that only the Watchtower can correctly interpret the Scriptures!)
So what have they been taught and what are Jehovah's Witnesses spreading to others? Besides (correctly) believing in the virgin birth like Catholics do, some examples of the Jehovah's Witnesses weird and dangerous unscriptural teachings are:
Jehovah's Witnesses BeliefsThe gospel is that the kingdom was established in the heavenlies in 1914.the first and greatest creation of Jehovah God.
Jesus is only a god and Michael the archangel,
Hell is the grave, where the dead rest unconscious awaiting a resurrection.
Man is a soul.
To qualify for baptism one must understand Jehovah's Witness beliefs.
Jesus became the Christ after his baptism at the age of 30, NOT at his birth! (See image to the right.) In contrast to the Watchtower, the Bible says JESUS WAS BORN THE CHRIST!But the angel said to them [the shepherds], "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David A SAVIOR HAS BEEN BORN TO YOU; HE IS CHRIST the Lord." (Luke 2:10,11)Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that HE WOULD NOT DIE BEFORE HE HAD SEEN THE LORD'S CHRIST. Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts. When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required, Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: "Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, YOU NOW DISMISS YOUR SERVANT IN PEACE. FOR MY EYES HAVE SEEN YOUR SALVATION," (Luke 2:25-30)Wicked people and the devil will be annihilated.
The departed soul of man is unconscious (or asleep) until the resurrection.
Only 144000 can be born again and will go to heaven. The rest of the faithful Jehovah's witnesses will live forever on paradise earth.
Jesus did NOT resurrect bodily, when he resurrected.
The Holy Spirit is referred to as holy spirit and is Jehovah's active force likened unto a radar beam - NOT a person.
Some people will be given a second chance to accept God's ways during the 1,000 year reign of Christ.
Taking in knowledge, as defined by the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, is the only way to get everlasting life!
We can NOT go to Jesus in prayer for salvation and can not have eternal life at this moment. (Eternal life to them is physical life, which lasts eternally!)
You must be a Jehovah's Witness to get everlasting life! The Watchtower (God's visible organization) is God's one and only ark to survive. (See image to the right.)
Only the Watchtower Society can correctly interpret the Bible. (See image down and to the right.)We all need help to understand the Bible, and we cannot find the Scriptural guidance we need outside the "faithful and discreet slave" organization. (The Watchtower, 2-15-1981)From Chile's report we read: "A special pioneer making a return visit asked the lady what book teaches us the will of God. ‘The Watchtower, of course,’ she said. Our sister proceeded to explain that it was, rather, the Bible. 'Yes, but what would I do with my recently obtained Bible if I did not use The Watchtower to understand it.?'" (1983 Yearbook of the Jehovah's Witnesses, p. 21.)It is only by studying the WATCHTOWER magazine and kindred publications that they can get the needed life--giving knowledge. There is no other source. (Informant, July 1940, p. 2)NOTE: To believe only the Watchtower Society can correctly teach the Bible, as they teach the gullible Jehovah's Witnesses, is to also cause the individual Jehovah's Witness to thereby disregard all correction from Christians, since the Christians are not spreading Watchtower teachings! It is a win win situation for the dangerous Watchtower Society and a lose lose situation for the individual Jehovah's Witness, who is in dire need of eternal life through the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you are a Christian, please know the Jehovah's Witnesses are at your door only to convert you! They have come to teach you, not to be taught. They will try to control what subjects are discussed and will not stop as long as they think they can succeed in changing you to become one of them! Since the Jehovah's Witnesses have five meetings a week in their meeting place, which they call a Kingdom Hall, and practice public speaking and answering people in various situations, they will come confidently and prepared. If you don't know the basic Bible doctrines, some of their own weird beliefs and why they are wrong, you may be much better off not to talk to them at this time. Perhaps after learning how to answer a Jehovah Witness, as cited on this website, you could set up a future meeting. Jehovah's Witnesses need salvation though they have zeal and can quote some Scriptures. Remember, even the devil can quote Scripture (Lk. 4:9,10), so don't be deceived! If you become effective in answering the Jehovah's Witnesses, they may not ever return to your house and will even warn other Jehovah's witnesses to stay away too! The Jehovah's Witness cult needs to be answered and exposed. The need is great.

Among the various errors they spread about salvation, their denial of an instant and present-tense salvation for the believer in Christ is easily refuted. What confuses this issue is the other tenses in salvation too.The Humanity Of ChristThe humanity of Christ is important to know about when teaching the deity of Christ because Jesus is both God and man. Hence, he is the God-man. Not knowing about his humanity has misled some into believing the vicious attacks against the deity of Christ, as presented by the Jehovah's Witnesses and other counterfeit Christian groups. They wrongly argue that he is man and therefore can't be God, but that conclusion doesn't follow, as you will see.Scriptural Proof That Jesus is by Nature GodEvidencia Biblica Que Demuestra Que Jesus Es Dios Por Naturaleza (Espanol)A Heavyweight Jehovah's Witness Embarrassment -- The Finished Mystery

All through the Scriptures we find evidence that Jesus is not the Father, but is deity (God by nature) like the Father. With all of this evidence about plurality between the Father and Son, how multitudes have been deceived about this is alarming to say the least. It seems once again that a creed or doctrinal confession has been the basis for one's personal belief rather than the Holy Scriptures. The truth is: Jesus is not the person of the Father, but he is deity like the Father.
