A Review of the Watchtower article “Who are Jehovah’s Witnesses?” (Watchtower Sept 2015)

watchtower sept1 2015

Who Are Jehovah’s Witnesses? September 1st 2015.

by James Broughton

In an article which spans five parts, the Watchtower Society appears to invite the reader to form a greater understanding of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Although they already have several brochures and leaflets about themselves, it seems they want this information to gain a wider acceptance by publishing it in the Watchtower magazine.

Who Are Jehovah’s Witnesses? (p.3)

The article begins with some common misunderstandings from a Watchtower point of view  of what JWs are not.

“I had known Mike for years. He is one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. But his religion always baffled me. Who is Jehovah? Why don’t Witnesses celebrate the holidays? Was Mike mixed up in a cult?”—Becky, California, U.S.A.

“When my neighbors started to study the Bible with Jehovah’s Witnesses, I wondered: ‘What does that name, Jehovah’s Witnesses, mean? What a strange name for a religion!’ ”—Zenon, Ontario, Canada.

“My wife and I thought that Jehovah’s Witnesses called to prey on our guilt feelings because we weren’t at church. And we figured that if the mainline churches didn’t have what we were looking for, a weird sect like Jehovah’s Witnesses couldn’t have it either.”—Kent, Washington, U.S.A.

“I honestly didn’t know who they were and what they stood for.”—Cecilie, Esbjerg, Denmark.

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

What does the Bible really teach?

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.

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

What does the Bible really teach?Chapter 4 Who Is Jesus Christ?

By Wilbur Lingle

As can be expected, the teaching about Christ in this chapter is greatly perverted because the Watchtower Society refuses to give Jesus Christ the same place the Bible gives Him. (Philippians 2:9-11. He is worthy of worship.) While saying it believes in Jesus Christ, the Society goes to great length to dethrone Him from His appropriate position in the Godhead. It makes vague statements but never explains them. It does not come out clearly and present its beliefs, but covers them up in a lot of “double-talk.” For instance, it believes that Jesus Christ was only a man and that when He died and went into the grave He was annihilated. Meaning the physical body disintegrated and went back into the elements or gasses, never to appear again as a human. When it speaks of Jesus’ resurrection, it teaches that Michael the archangel was re-created three days after the death of Jesus. To cover this up, it says that Jesus was raised as “a spirit.” But in this chapter it does not even hint at its true belief about Michael, so a person who is unaware would think it believes that Jesus actually rose from the grave. For this reason, you will have to ask many questions to get the Jehovah’s Witness you are talking with to explain what the Watchtower Society actually teaches. This will be hard, but be patient and persistent. Continue reading
