Do Jehovah’s Witnesses lack both bible skills & Intellectual Integrity?

September 26th, 2010 Comments off

I would like to say that I Love JW’s in fact if it was possible I would lay down my life so they could come to Christ. Yet their theology I hate. I look on their theology as being lazy. Meaning its neither proved or worked through………………Read on.

On my way to church this morning, I met two elderly men who called themselves Jehovah’s Witnesses (JW’s). I have met them before.

They refer to me as the “born again” man, as I have been warning them to repent and to be “born again” as Jesus said it is the only way we can enter the kingdom of God.

The jehovah’s Witnesses for some reason say only 144 000 can be “born again”. Yet 1 John 5:18 says…We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin, so then the JW’s must enjoy sinning?

Together we looked at the 2Corinthians13:5 Scripture……... Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you—unless, of course, you fail the test?

My two JW friends were insisting that this scripture is not to be taken literal (literal words denote what they mean according to common usage), but my JW friends were saying that its figurative language that is being used here. Wow that is dangerous and lazy thinking………….Is the whole bible then to be seen as being figurative?

You can see the error that folks who use the bible can get into unless they are led/kept by the Holy Spirit.

Does it mean then that the other almost 12 clear references to a Christian having Christ living in them are also figurative in language use, and mean something other than what has been taught by the Church throughout its history?

Lets look at some of those other scriptures.

Colossians 2:6 just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, +
Galatians 2:20 Christ lives in me. + Ephesians 3:17 Christ may dwell in your hearts + Romans 8:10 But if Christ is in you, + Colossians 1:27 Christ in you, the hope of glory. + 2Timothy 4:22 The Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. + John 15:4 I in you + John 15:5 and I in him, + John 1:12 Yet to all who received him, + 1 John 5:12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life. + John 14:23 and we will come to him and make our home with him. + Romans 8:9 And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, he does not belong to Christ. + 2John1:9 He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. + Other scriptures like 1John 4:13 and 1John 4:4 etc……

These days I take Jehovah’s Witness folks less and less seriously. I see that they have really bad theology. In fact its so bad that they stop themselves from ever entering the kingdom of God.

Our response then: We need to love the JW’s and pray for them and ask God to deliver them.

Amen
