Jehovah Witnesses



Basic Beliefs:

  • Charles Taze Russell, the founder of the Watchtower Society began his search because of his fear of Hell.
  • He learned from the Seventh Day Adventists that "there is no hell."
  • From this point he began his "search for the truth" , of which the Jehovah's Witnesses are the result.
  • They claim that the Bible is their final authority, but also claim that the common person is unable to understand it, and therefore needs the assistance of their literature.
  • They place the writings and sayings of their literature above the Bible in practice.

Jesus:

  • They deny the deity of Jesus claiming, Jesus is not God but "a god".
  • They teach that Jesus was actually the angel Michael in spirit form, but Michael in-dwelled the body of Jesus.
  • They also teach that when Jesus arose, his physical body disappeared and Michael took on human appearance and pretended to be Jesus. Therefore at this time Jesus does not exist, just Michael.

Salvation:

  • Salvation to the Jehovah's Witnesses is one of works.
  • Originally they claimed that only 144,000 would go to heaven, but as they grew they changed it to the original 144,000 will go to heaven, the rest will live on a "paradise earth".
  • They deny the existence of hell, and those that reject the "truth" are simply annihilated.
  • A person obtains salvation by faithfully adhering to the commands of the Watchtower Society, after they are baptized into the Society.
  • If a person does not obey the leadership they are dis-fellow-shipped and condemned to be destroyed.

Witness Focus:

  • Ask them how much is "enough" to attain salvation.
  • Ask them how they attain righteousness as "the righteous inherit the earth." (Psalms 37:29)
  • Show them how we can never be good enough to earn salvation.

About Jeremy

My photo
Falkville, AL, United States
Jeremy's testimony is not an eloquent or elaborate testimony but it is genuine and truthful. Jeremy is a son of a free will baptist minister. Jeremy grew up in church as a preacher's kid. Though Jeremy knew all the lingo on the Bible, he was lost and needed to be saved. Jeremy's dad was the pastor of a small country church. He had a guest speaker to preach the evening service. Jeremy felt convicted of his sins and became focused on his dirty heart. On the way home after the preaching Jeremy asked his dad and mom on how he could be saved. They showed Jeremy how to be saved and he knelt down by his bed and Jeremy received Jesus Christ by faith. He became Jeremy's personal Saviour. Amen!
