MODUS OPERANDI:

Jehovah’s Witnesses knock on people’s doors with the intent to give them pamphlets containing information about Jesus Christ and how to become a “witness.” Many Jehovah’s Witnesses exist— and they do work to share what they believe is the gospel— unfortunately, they are not authentic disciples of Christ. They do not understand being born again.

They think Jesus began ruling in 1914.

They reject the trinity doctrine that Jesus is God. They also reject that God is one God in three persons.

They reject that souls are eternal and that souls will burn forever in the lake of fire. 3

They do not take the Bible literally.

They are taught that they are the only ones who will be saved when “Armageddon” comes as the end of the world. After the Armageddon, 144,000 of them will reign in Heaven with Jehovah while the rest will build up and live in perfection on the earth.

They do believe in disfellowshipping, which is also known as shunning or excommunication.

They also believe that women should not teach or be in leadership roles but it is in every role, not just the church role.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses have around 8 million members and they have several layers of leadership in their hierarchy.

YOUR MISSION:

If someone you know is interested in the JW doctrine, show them the scriptures:

Tell them that they must be born again of the Holy Spirit of God because the Bible says that He is our Helper who helps us.

Show them the scriptures about Jesus being God. Find them here.   Help them to see that cutting out the name Jesus, cuts out the Savior.

Christopher Columbus “discovered” America in 1492, but they believe Jesus began His rule in 1914. Think about that.

It is interesting that they would say “Abraham, Moses, and Jesus” instead of “Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob,” which if you know the Bible, it is an important distinguishing factor that supports the Jewish people and rejects the Islamic belief.

If you read the King James of Revelation 20:10-14, it is easy to see that souls will burn in fire forever. Share those scriptures.

We all understand that certain parts of the book of Revelation and other prophecies are figurative, but at the same time, they are describing a literal future that God desires for us to search out. Everything else in the Bible is the literal, true, and accurate account of the history of the world and how God created everything. If they don’t believe the Word, then they don’t believe Jesus.

If you’ve ever listened to Jehovah Witnesses talk about Armageddon or their beliefs, they never really talk using the scriptures. Instead, they talk about the publication, the WatchTower. They also never talk about the work of the Holy Spirit. It seems to me that Jehovah’s Witnesses are trying to work out their salvation without Christ because they are not born-again, but are trying to do works without the indwelling work of the Holy Spirit. They are taught never to celebrate holidays or birthdays, but the Jewish people are well-known for celebrating holidays that are meant to commemorate something that God has done or to teach their children about Him. Read more about celebrating holidays here. 

We again understand that sometimes you have to leave family members because of their sinful lifestyles, however, Jehovah’s Witnesses excommunication views are flawed because they will excommunicate over smoking, but not over spousal abuse or child molestation.

I used to believe that we should not greet the Jehovah’s Witness, but actually we should and we should contend with them. I explain that at this link.4 The Jehovah’s Witnesses struggle and we should be the ones to help them to understand the truth especially because they are so willing to cut out the world. God loves people who want to follow Him and purify themselves by His Word–and of course, with the Helper given to us by Jesus Christ who gives the gift of the Holy Spirit. Unfortunately, not in the way that the Jehovah’s Witnesses are taught because it is undoctrinal.
