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.

A Review of the January 2015 Watchtower article entitled “Should We Pray to Jesus?”

praying-hands-Pencilby James Broughton

THE WATCHTOWER JANUARY 2015 page 14-15 ‘Should We Pray to Jesus?’

The article begins with a research poll of 800 youths from more than a dozen religious denominations [source not revealed], asking whether they believed that Jesus answers prayers. Over 60 percent said that they firmly believe that he does. However, one youth crossed out the name Jesus on the survey and wrote “God” instead. The question is then posed “What do you think? Should we address our prayers to Jesus or to God? To find the answer, first let us consider how Jesus taught his disciples to pray.”

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

What does the Bible really teach?By Wilbur Lingle

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.

Where Is the Great Crowd?

Where is the Great Crowd?

Is the Great Crowd on Earth or in Heaven?

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?
