Are Mormons/ Jehovah’s Witnesses Christians?

A free Jehovah's Witness?

Let me introduce you to Mr Elliot a Ghanaian, see picture. I met him in 2007. He has been a zealous man for the Jehovah’s Witness cause.

Yet I am thankful to Jehovah God that Elliot has been delivered from that misleading religion. I have been earnestly praying for him, and thankfully my prayer has been answered. Yesterday (2nd Dec 2009) he came to me and said that he now wants to leave the JW’s congregation and join me in fellowship at Christ Embassy, a charismatic church here in Ghana.

Through correct teaching and by the anointing of the Holy Spirit, Elliot has come to see that a Christian is not just someone who uses the name Jehovah, and that a Christian is certainly not someone who hopes to gain salvation by doing good works.

But rather by being Born from above through receiving Jesus he Elliot has become a Christian/a child of God. John 1 verse 12 says: Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—

Please reader note the scripture says all, its not just applicable to a limited group like the 144 000.

Elliot has come to know that having received Christ that he (Elliot) is then made fit for the kingdom of God. He is made right with God by the work of Jesus on the cross. He is born again.

JW’s wrongly teach that only a limited number can be born again, yet all of us who are born of a woman (meaning every human) needs the new birth as we are all dead because of the sin of Adam and our own sin. So folks if we want to enter the kingdom of God we must be born from above/again.

Romans 8 verse 10 tells us: But if Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alivebecause of righteousness.

That describes what has taken place in Elliot. That as he received Christ, Elliot’s spirit which was affected by sin and death, now has come alive because of having Christ. Without this process no one can know God.

That is why Muslims and Mormons and JW’s and others who all reject or confuse or don’t know about the born again process cant call themselves children of God. As its only through Jesus that we come into the Kingdom, and by the proper application of what Jesus has done for us.

I am very pleased that God has chosen to deliver Elliot and to give him the new birth. Lets pray that God will use His church to further rescue others like Elliot……

Please if you the reader of this are still not sure; look at 2Corinthians 13 verse5, or Colossians 1 verses26-27, or 2Timothy 4 verse 22 and Galatians 2 verse 20.
