A response to the article “Is Easter really a Christian celebration?” Watchtower March 1, 2015

By James Broughton

As Easter approaches, Jehovah’s Witnesses will trot out the same excuses as to why it does not celebrate this important Christian holiday. This year is no different as the Society tackles the issue in the March 1, 2015 edition of the Watchtower magazine.

James Broughton gives his response to the magazine article…

How to Respond to the Jehovah’s Witness’ Publication “What Does the Bible Really Teach?” — Part Two

What does the Bible really teach?By Wilbur Lingle

Chapter 2

The Bible – A Book From God

GENERALLY, what is presented in this chapter about the Bible is rather accurate. However, even if it might sound good on the surface, you need to understand what it comes out to in reality. While the Watchtower Society claims to believe all the Bible and that it is the inspired Word of God, yet it still teaches that the whole Bible was written only for the 144,000, referred to as the “anointed,” so it does not believe the Bible can be read and understood by the average person. The Society continually quotes the conversation between Philip and the Ethiopian eunuch to try to prove that the Bible must be interpreted. Acts 8:30-31 reads, “Philip ran alongside and heard him reading aloud Isaiah the prophet, and he said: ‘Do you actually know what you are reading?’ He said: ‘Really, how could I ever do so, unless someone guided me?’ And he entreated Philip to get on and sit down with him” (NWT). Of course, the Society ignores the promise that the Holy Spirit will guide us into truth as found in John 14:26.

To prove that the Watchtower Society clearly teaches that a person cannot come into the truth by just reading the Bible on his or her own, I would like to quote from an article in the February 15, 1981, Watchtower, page 17. “From such experience it can be seen that Jehovah God caused the Bible to be written in such a way that one needs to come in touch with his human channel before one can fully and accurately understand it. True, we need the help of God’s holy spirit, but its help also comes to us primarily by association with the channel Jehovah God sees fit to us.” (Many more such quotes can be found in Watchtower literature.)

Introduction

Is This What God Purposed?

You are going to need a lot of patience whenever you witness to a Jehovah’s Witness. Whenever you ask one of them a question, he will give a lot of explanations–as if you do not know anything about the Bible–and this will take a long time.

It can be tiring to have to listen so much, but it is important to listen well, because Jehovah’s Witnesses will very often contradict themselves and you can point this out later to your advantage.

Also, when you ask a question for which they don’t know the answer, they will often begin a long explanation about another subject. When this happens, remember your question. When they get finished with this long explanation about something you are not talking about, go back to the original question and ask it again. Do not pick up on something you are not discussing and go “chasing rabbits.”

Remember that you are not only dealing with a Jehovah’s Witness but the Lord will be dealing with you, and He is able to teach you many things. You are going to need patience—to be long-suffering, kind, gentle, loving–and should spend a lot of time in prayer.

NO THANKS! A New tract now available – Order yours now!

No ThanksFor more than 30 years First & Last Ministries has been working in the UK, to equip and encourage Christians, to reach out to individuals trapped by the Watchtower Society and help lead them to a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.

One such tract that helped release my family from the JWs was this one by the late David Rushworth-Smith who was our pastor for a number of years in Wood Green, north London.

The tract gives Jehovah’s Witnesses a number of reasons why the person handing it to them cannot become a member of their religion. It covers a number of topics including the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the second coming and gives many scriptural references.

For many years this valuable tract has been out of print and unavailable, but now I am delighted to let you know that we have obtained permission, from David’s widow Doreen,  to reprint this very powerful piece of literature.

It is our prayer at First & Last Ministries that you will find it useful in your work to reach out to Jehovah’s Witnesses.

You can order copies by visiting our Tracts and Literature page here.
