The faith of Jehovah's Winesses

Post  WordofLife on Wed 02 Apr 2008, 9:43 pm

Jehovah Witness was initiated by Charles Taze Russell (1852-1916). Russell taught that Christ and the apostles returned to earth in October of 1874 and have continued to be here since then. C.T. Russell lived a fraudulant life. During his divorce case, C. T. Russell tried to avoid alimony and transferred $317,000 ti the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society. C. T. Russell's wife charged her husband of having extra marital affairs. Following is the faith that Jehovah Witnesses believe in:

1. That one cannot have true light without "Studies in the Scriptures."

2. That there is only one person in the Godhead.

3. That Christ was a "created being." In their translation (New World Translation), John 1:1, reads: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was A God." Thus, they deny the deity of Christ.

4. That Christ's body was not raised from the dead.

5. That the Holy Spirit is only the influence or power exercised by God.

6. That the Kingdom has not yet been established, but will be established when the Millennium comes.

7. That salvation is by faith only.

8. That every man shall have another chance.

9. That death is a destruction; an annihilation. It is unconsciousness.

10. That there is no eternal punishment for the unrighteous.

11. That the Lord's Supper is to be observed annually.

12. That the apostles have been living on this earth since 1874 as invisible spirits in bodily forms.

13. They taught that all worldly kingdoms would end in 1914 and the earthly phase of the kingdom would then be set up.

14. That the earth will be Paradise.

Thank you for posting this information. I did not know about this at all. Now when they will knock at my door, I will surely ask them about all these things. You have given me a reason to confront them now.

God bless
