01 Jun Why Jehovah’s Witness is Not of God
Jehovah Witness have teachings that are heretic, thus making this organization a false religion. We will go in to detail what are the false teachings that make this religion not of God.
1. False Teachings of Jesus Christ
Jehovah Witness – Jesus Christ is the Michael the Archangel in heavenly form.
Bible – Archangel Michael is the chief angel over angels. Just like any other angel mentioned in the Bible, he can’t rebuke anyone himself but says, “The Lord rebuke you!” (Jude 1:9, Zechariah 3:1-2). The Book of Revelation makes a distinction between Jesus Christ and Michael the Archangel. So it is impossible for Jesus Christ to be the archangel.
Jehovah Witness – Jesus Christ is the first creation of God and not the creator of all.
Jehovah Witness – Jesus Christ was resurrected by Jehovah.
Bible – Jesus Christ was resurrected by the Holy Spirit, who is the 3rd person of the Holy Trinity (Romans 8:11).
Jehovah Witness – Jesus Christ had a spiritual resurrection and did not have physical body.
Bible – Jesus Christ had a physical resurrection. When Jesus Christ rose from the dead, his body was not found. The angel at his tomb told the women that he could not be found because he has risen from the dead (Matthew 28:5-7). Jesus Christ also shown his disciples that he had a physical body by showing his wounds and eating (Luke 24:36-43).
Jehovah Witness – Jesus Christ already came back spiritually in 1914 and will soon complete his conquest.
Bible – Jesus Christ comes back physically on a white horse in which all eyes will see him and the Earth shall wail because of him (Revelation 1:7). All of the Earth armies will surround him to attack him. However he will destroy them. (Revelation 19:19-21).
2. False Teachings of the Holy Spirit
Jehovah Witness – Holy Spirit is the active force of Jehovah.
Bible – Holy Spirit is the third person of Holy Trinity, who is the power of God. Read more about him here: Who is the Holy Spirit?
3. False Teaches of Hell
Jehovah Witness – Hell is the grave in which everyone who died goes.
Bible – Hell is a place of eternal torment for those unbelievers, wicked, disobedient, etc. It is more of a holding prison until the end of the millennial reign of Jesus Christ. Then people who were in Hell will be thrown in the Lake of Fire, in which they will burn for all eternity. Read our articles on Hell here: Scriptures of Hell, Is Hell real?
Jehovah Witness – God is love so he will never send people to Hell.
Bible – God is love but he is also a king. As a king, he made rules and regulations. He also made a penalty for anyone who breaks these rules. Jesus Christ said it himself that we must be fearful of men but of God who can destroy both the body and soul in Hell (Matthew 10:28).
One of the reasons God is love is that he came down as Jesus Christ in order to shed his own blood in order that we may not perish in Hell. Jesus Christ stated that there is no greater than love than dying for your friends (John 15:13).
Jehovah Witness practices heresy. The Bible warns that it is the work of the flesh and people who practice heresy, will not make it to Heaven (Galatians 5:19-21).
