Jehovah's Witnesses Got It All Wrong!
by David J. Stewart | February 2016
Proverbs 4:19, “The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.”
Jehovah's Witnesses (JW's) are walking in darkness, and have been since they were founded in 1874 by Charles Taze Russell. There's few religions in the world that get the Word of God as WRONG as the JW's. They're wrong on umpteen Bible subjects. They deny Christ's bodily resurrection, teaching instead that only Jesus' spirit raised up. They deny the person of the Holy Spirit, teaching instead that God the Father has no literal biological Son. They deny the deity of Christ, claiming instead that Michael the archangel became Jesus (as one of God's sons). JW's teach that Lucifer and Jesus are angelic brothers. How messed up is all that so far?
It gets more weird. JW's twist the Scriptural teaching that “the life of the flesh is in the blood” in Leviticus 17:11, taking it to a whole new level, refusing blood transfusions for sick JW members. Many JW's have died over the past century as a result of their rejection of available medical treatment. Modern medical advancements are a blessing from God, which we ought to gladly receive as Christians. Of course, the pharmaceutical industry today is a big fraud, which we all need to be leery of when given endless doctor's prescriptions. Ultimately, you are your own best doctor.
In addition, JW's refuse to fight in the military, claiming that their allegiance ought to be only for God. They will not pledge allegiance to the United States flag. JW's are pacifists, unwilling to fight. I once asked a JW what he would do if attacked by an assailant, and he said “Call the police.” So I asked him if he believed police ought to be Jehovah's Witnesses too? He had no come-back reply. You see, the bizarre beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses only work for Jehovah's Witnesses! Biblically, we ought to obey God rather than men, but there is nothing wrong with pledging loyalty to one's baseball team, highschool or nation.
JW's unbiblically teach that Jesus began to reign in Heaven in the year 1914 AD. They believe it was at this time that Christ returned INVISIBLY to the earth (“You Can Live Forever In Paradise On Earth,” page 147), and that Christ is setting up His earthly kingdom solely through the organization of the Jehovah's Witnesses. JW's believe that World Wars I and II were outward manifestations of the spiritual war caused by Christ's INVISIBLE return, battling the forces of Satan. Of course, none of this is taught in any Bible version, not even in the JW's corrupt “New World Translation” (talk about a New World Order Bible version). It was heretic and JW founder, Charles Russell (1852-1916), who fabricated these manmade doctrines. Kindly, the Jehovah's Witness' religion is of the Devil.
Here is a disturbing heretical quote from the JW publication titled, “You Can Live Forever In Paradise On Earth,” page 255...
“Do not conclude that there are different roads, or ways, that you can follow to gain life in God's new system. There is only one. There was just the one ark that survived the Flood, not a number of boats. And there will be only one organization—God's visible organization—that will survive the fast-approaching 'great tribulation.' It is simply not true that all religions lead to the same goal (Matthew 7:21-23; 24:21). You must be part of Jehovah's organization, doing God's will, in order to receive his blessing of everlasting life. —Psalms 133:1-3.”

As you just read for yourself, JW's believe THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES who are saved. Unless you join the visible organization of the Jehovah's Witnesses, you are not saved, they say! If you research further into their satanic religion, you'll discover that they consider “doing God's will” (as you just read) to include: water baptism, holy living, knocking on doors, joining the JW organization, et cetera (Book title: “You Can Live Forever In Paradise On Earth”; from the last chapter titled: “What You Must Do To Live Forever,” pages 250-252).
“However, more than faith is needed. There must also be works to demonstrate what your true feelings are about Jehovah (James 2:20, 26). Have you done things to show that you are sorry for any failing in the past to do what is right? Have you been removed to repent or make changes to bring your life course into harmony with Jehovah's will?”

My friend, what you just read is a false plan of salvation. It is “ANOTHER GOSPEL” (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). The Bible pronounces a CURSE FROM GOD upon anyone who preaches a corrupted Gospel...
Galatians 1:6-9, “I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.”
Sadly, Jehovah's Witnesses are CURSED!!! I say that with Christ's love. I have no ill-intent toward any Jehovah's Witness. My preaching is strictly against the false teachings of the JW's, which are exposed by shining the light of God's Word upon them. Ephesians 4:15, “But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.”
And may I say, the apostate Baptist churches today who are teaching “Lordship Salvation” are teaching the same “grace plus works” false plan of salvation as the Jehovah's Witnesses. As you just read in the quote from page 250 from “You Can Live Forever In Paradise On Earth,” JW's teach faith is NOT ENOUGH to be saved. I hear Independent Baptists teaching the same garbage. Beware of John MacArthur, Paul Washer, Ray Comfort, John Piper, R.C. Sproul, Rick Warren, Joel Osteen, Charles Stanley, Robert Schuller, Beth Moore, Chip Ingram, Paris Reidhead, James Dobson, Pat Robertson, John Hagee, Jimmy Swaggert and Billy Graham, to name just a few of the popular false prophets of our time concerning the Gospel.
Biblically, “the Gospel” is defined as Christ's death on the cross for our sins, His burial, and bodily resurrection three days later (1st Corinthians 15:1-4). If you acknowledge yourself as a guilty sinner in the eyes of a holy God (Romans 3:19), and believe the Gospel, then you are immediately and forever saved (Romans 1:16; Mark 1:15; Philippians 3:9; Galatians 3:26; Romans 10:3-4; Ephesians 2:8-9). Please read “I NEVER KNEW YOU” (by Michael P. Bowen) for an excellent defense of the simple Gospel. Also, please hear the awesome MP3 sermon by Dr. Hank Lindstrom titled, “How Permanent Is Your Salvation?” END
“Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering;
(for he is faithful that promised)” —Hebrews 10:23
love God who doesn't love sinners!”
(a quote by Dr. Jack Hyles classic MP3 sermon, “The Happiest Man” (happiest is the man who will not impute sin to others!)
