The aim of this statement is to provide a brief overview of the Jehovah's Witnesses and their mission to disprove the entire deity of Jesus Christ. The Jehovah Witnesses under the instruction of the Watchtower Society believes they are the sole earthly representative of God. They also think that the Watchtower is the only firm that can properly interpret the bible. The Jehovah Witnesses doctrinal views run contrary to the views of modern Christianity and for that reason in the eyes of several, it is considered a cult. This statement will show how with love and humility you can reveal the gospel of Jesus Christ with all users of this corporation.
THE BEGINNING OF THE JEHOVAH WITNESSES
"The Watchtower Society was founded by Charles Taze Russell (1852-1916). He was raised in a Presbyterian family in Pennsylvania and since a young young he was urged to pursue a career in Christian ministry. " No-one really knows how long he was involved in the Presbyterian beliefs; however there were some doctrinal variations that he did not trust. Russell acquired a problem with the doctrinal views of predestination and eternal abuse. After giving the Presbyterian beliefs Russell became a Congregationalist. While an associate of your Congregational cathedral Russell is" closely inspired by an Arrival Christian Church preacher, Jonas Wendell. Wendell who was simply a respectable Introduction preacher becomes Russell's mentor. Wendell's family was a part of the fantastic Disappointment of 1844. This specific group known as the Adventists was getting excited about the go back of Christ which
was predicted by William Miller a popular Baptist preacher. " Certainly this didn't happen. Russell was intrigued with this group so he further immersed himself into the group and they again anticipated the come back of Christ in 1874 again this prediction did not took place. In 1879 Russell kept the Adventists. Sometime later he started out posting his own journal called Zion's Watch Tower and Herald of Christ's Existence. Russell used his newspaper as a way to propagate his doctrinal view including many of the "Adventists beliefs, such as rejecting the Trinity, eternal consequence, and the immortality of the heart and soul. " As though that had not been bad enough Russell also proclaimed that Christ's unseen presence (not Christ's physical return) commenced in 1874 and that the real human administration would end and heaven would be restored by 1914. It was not until 1931 under the course of a fresh innovator (Joseph Franklin Rutherford) performed the Watchtower Population change the name The Jehovah's Witnesses. " Joseph Franklin Rutherford can be credited with the development of today's - day hierarchical, or theocratic, organizational framework. "
CRITIQUE OF JEHOVAH WITNESSES
The Jehovah Witnesses assume that the Watchtower Modern culture is the best true organization other business is of the devil. The believers must obey the Watchtower as
the words of God. "If you believe anything apart from what the Society espouses, you are disfellowshipped, and your former Witness friends cluck and wag their minds because you have been inspired by Satan. " There are many things incorrect with the opinion system of the Jehovah Witnesses, for one they deny the Trinity. Since the Trinity is not pointed out in the bible there is absolutely no basis for the Trinity. Believing that the daddy, Son and the Holy Nature are an example may be a pagan doctrine. They think that "Jesus was the first and biggest of creation and they believe that Jesus is the incarnation of Michael the Archangel. " The Jehovah Witnesses assume that God (Jehovah) and Jesus are two different gods, with Jesus being an inferior god portion under God who's the only true God. The Jehovah Witnesses assume that the Holy Spirit is nothing more than God's invisible push. " The Jehovah Witnesses refuse the lifestyle of hell and educate that only 144, 000 people goes to heaven plus they believe only the Jehovah Witnesses will make it through the Challenge of Armageddon and the next arriving of Christ. "
WITNESSING TO THE JEHOVAH WITNESSES
Known because of their fast communicating and at times confrontational manor witnessing to a Jehovah See can be intimidating and sometimes down right terrifying. However, Christians should use every chance to open their eyes to the reality and to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with them. "When witnessing to a Jehovah See never forget that you will be the
child of God; you must maintain power in the situation and not permit the Jehovah Witness to assume control. " It's very critical a positive attitude is definitely maintained. Keeping your cool could make or break the discussion. "In the end Christians are called to talk about the good thing of the gospel with them so they might be saved from damage (Jude 3; 1 Peter 3:15-16; Matthew 28:19-20). "
"Seek the reality - Listen to the real truth- Teach the truth - Love the reality - Follow the fact- And protect the reality -Unto loss of life. " The desire of any Religious should be that everyone accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. There is nothing incorrect with having different views however; when that view goes against the word of God the work of the Religious is to show see your face the error of the ways. This is done with love and humility and with much prayer.
