Have you ever been invited to someone’s home for dinner, but not eaten any of the food? Only sat there and watched them eat? What purpose would that serve? That is exactly what the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses expect you to do if you attend this year’s Memorial on Friday, April 3rd 2015.
How to Respond to the Jehovah’s Witness’ Publication “What Does the Bible Really Teach?” — Part Five
Chapter Five The Ransom—God’s Great Gift
by Wilbur Lingle
People need to be aware that the Watchtower Society uses the same Biblical words and expressions in its publications as evangelical Christians do, but with entirely different meanings. Otherwise, people might come to the conclusion after reading this chapter that the Jehovah’s Witnesses are just another branch of Christianity. But this is not the case. The Society couches its true teachings in a very obscure manner on purpose? in order to deceive. You cannot truly understand what is written in this chapter of their book if you take it at face value. You need to understand what this deceitful book is really saying.
JEHOVAH’S Witnesses teach that the 144,000 are the only people to have a future heavenly hope, leaving all other JWs members of the Great Crowd who will possess the earth after the battle of Armageddon.
But is this true and what does the Bible teach?

In this article, former Jehovah’s Witness Lesley Mitchell outlines the changes present-day Jehovah’s Witnesses are to hear about this September.
The average Jehovah’s Witness will boldly tell you that they are not Born Again even though they hope to survive Armageddon and live on a paradise earth.
However, what does the Bible teach? Noel Wombwell looks at this vital subject.
