My sister is a Jehovah’s Witness to whom I have witnessed to for over thirty years to no avail. I’m aware that Jehovah’s Witnesses believe they have replaced Israel as God’s people/witnesses. My sister recently used the term ‘spiritual Israel’ in regard to herself and other Jehovah’s Witnesses and my response was that I did not believe in a spiritual Israel. I do not subscribe to Replacement Theology in any form, believing that God will keep every promise He has made including those made to the nation of Israel and the Jews as a people. My questions are 1) who specifically are Abraham’s children by circumcision of the heart, and what and who could be spiritual Israel if there is such a people?
Can you help me answer this question for the Jehovah Witnesses? I know Jesus is the Son of God, and I also know and believe with all my heart that Jesus is the God of the Old Testament. Jehovah God. Jehovah Witnesses have sometimes asked me the following: “If Jesus is God – then who did He pray to?” Can you please help me with a simple answer?
I was brought up as a Jehovah’s Witness but now I have found Christ and I’m saved. But there is this concept that I have not been able to clear in my mind. Was Jesus Christ created? Please refer to Colossians 1: 15-16 in your answer.
First I would like to thank you, I stumbled upon your website trying to find a verse in Matthew 7. I came across the article; Not everyone who says Lord, Lord. Not only did this message bring my husband and myself to tears but it has renewed our walks with Christ. I have a question concerning the Trinity.
I, a preachers child, grew up not realizing that there are people who deny the Trinity yet still profess their Christianity until I met my husband. He grew up a Jehovah’s Witness (left 13 years ago). He and I are continuously searching for our home church and this seems to be the one item he can’t get. I believe it to be from years of hearing the Witness take on the Trinity. Could you possibly shed some light on scripture for us to go over. Also, is the belief in the Trinity a contingency for his salvation?
Is there anywhere in the bible that specifically says “age of accountability”. The Baptist claim 12 years old but I cannot find biblical proof of 12 and the Presbyterians say there is no age of accountability. I’m in discussion now regarding children being saved “by default”. There are arguments that children are saved because they do not know better. Others say that they are saved because of Gods covenant with the parents. If the 12 year old daughter of the Jehovah Witness parents dies in an automobile accident whats the fate of the child?
I have a co-worker who is a Jehovah Witness. He states they believe that Jesus is the archangel Michael. He questioned that if Jesus was God, why did he pray to himself. And he also referenced that when the disciples asked when he would come again, he said only the Father knows the time and hour of his return. Could you help me in showing him, with scriptural evidence, that Jesus was God with us?
Jehovah’s Witnesses claim that Jesus died on a vertical stake instead of a cross, because the original Greek word for the execution device translates in English to a stake. Do you know what the original Greek word is for the execution device that Jesus died on, and what it really translates to in English?
