JEHOVAH WITNESS CULT
WOLVES IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING
A True JW is a Jesus Witness (Acts 1:8).
The countdown to pull down Jehovah’s Witness strongholds in Vancouver, Canada, reached zero. Fall winds rustled fallen leaves as Wayne walked down the mountain from Summit Pacific Bible College [www.summitpacific.ca] to face-off against Watchtower heavies. After praying in chapel several hours a day for two years he saw a vision of a cross with the words, “Christ’s Witnesses.” He tested the vision and found it biblical for Jesus said, “You shall be witnesses unto me” (Acts 1:8).
Jesus pointed to himself not to Jehovah as the only way to heaven: “I am the way, truth and life. No man comes to the Father [who is in heaven] except by me” (John 14:6). “Daily in the temple and in every house they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ” not the kingdom (Acts 5:42). Their message is found in 1st Cor. 15:1-4. The JW god is Satan, “the Father of lies” (John 8:44).
In an ancient battle, arrows flew so thick they blotted out the sun. An old soldier said, “I like fighting in the shade!” After much heart work, Jehovah’s Witnesses fled from streets in heart- pounding terror as strongholds collapsed in the shadow of the cross.
From the bus, Christ’s Witness saw hordes of JWs standing defiantly in their main theater of operation along Hastings and Granville Streets. Like Mormons, they attacked all Christians as “the whore of Babylon that will bite the dust at Armageddon.”
They also attacked the Bible, weaving satanic verses into their New World perversion. We must defend the gospel not roll over and play dead (Phil. 1:17). “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to pull down strongholds” (2 Cor. 10:4). A strong Jehovah’s Witness has “strong delusion” because he believes lies and is not saved (2 Thess. 2:10,11). They are Satanists for Satan is the author of their entire belief system.
Nearing ground zero, Christ’s Witness checked assault weapons in his briefcase. His arsenal, similar to David’s sling and stones, consisted of a Bible, tape recorder, literature and a Christ’s Witness cross painted on cardboard. Invisible armor consisted of helmet of salvation, breastplate of righteousness, gospel of peace, shield of faith, sword of the spirit, love and prayer. Retreating is suicidal since God provides no back armor.
JWs speak of “theocratic war strategy.” Their two weapons are deception, using a Bible perversion and camouflage, disguised as wolves in sheep’s clothing. Cults flourish in an atmosphere of apathy and ignorance. Jesus said, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32). Dark clouds of demonic oppression disperse and Satan’s death grip is released when cultists learn the truth enabling them to smile again. In their regime of fear, they attend five meetings a week but meet the devil not God. It was time to checkmate the false prophets:
Stepping from the bus, Wayne stopped briefly in a doorway for prayer then started his tape recorder, held the cross and walked into the wolves’ lair. They could not face the music as the song, The Old Rugged Cross, echoed from tall buildings. After all that prayer they did not know what hit them. An old timer clad in suit held magazines and trembled as tears streamed down his cheeks hitting the sidewalk. He said,
“You will never move Jehovah’s Witnesses!”
“You are right,” said Christ’s Witness. “I cannot move you but God will!”
Reactions in this cult exorcism were riveting spectacles. Grabbing briefcases, JW wimps fled with screeching tires on dry pavement. Others in suicidal lemming fashion ran like Olympic athletes through red lights. Stampeding through an intersection, one narrowly escaped a large gravel truck grinding to a stop near him. As a Salvation Army brass band passed, JW said, “The devil is out in full force today.” After a few Sunday clashes the concrete jungle stronghold collapsed and never recovered from this coup d’etat. “This is our finest hour,” said Winston Churchill as London burned and bombs rained in the battle of Britain.
A Syrian army surrounded Samaria causing a great famine. A servant asked Elisha, “What shall we do?”
He answered, “Fear not! We have more on our side than the enemy has on his side” (2 Kings 6:16).
God opened the servant’s eyes to see horses and chariots of fire causing Syrians to hear sounds of a great army that made them flee leaving gold and all in camp (2 Kings 7). I wonder what JWs heard that made them run from Vancouver streets. Glassy eyed, demon possessed cultists lose control at sight of the cross. Satan knows of his defeat by Jesus at Calvary. Our battle is not against flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness (Eph. 6:12). “One will chase 1,000 and two will put 10,000 to flight” (Deut. 32:30).
About a dozen JWs ran in terror down Hastings Street. A woman pale as death stopped, leaned against a wall trembling with fear totally shell-shocked. Grinding attrition in the shark tank continued week after week until the stronghold collapsed like a house of cards. If you are outnumbered, do not be intimidated. Jonathan and his armor bearer defeated an army of Philistines: “The Lord is able to save by many or by few” (1 Samuel 14:6). Some try to do all by their own strength while others think God does everything but the Bible teaches, “We are laborers together with God” (1 Cor. 3:9). The Humpty Dumpty showdown continues:
A JW Titan stood in Goliath fashion at Main and Broadway with a clenched fist: “You are my #1 enemy. I’ll smash you right in the face.”
Christ’s Witness replied, “Jesus said to turn the other cheek not smash the face.” The hit-man self destructed and was not seen on streets again. We are not called to just defend the faith but also to take offensive action. The gates of hell will not hold back an army clad in the armor of God (Matt. 16:18). The nightmare continues to unfold:
JWs claim to not take up arms in war but believe in gun powder more than God’s power. They frequently call men with guns, police, when their kingdom is threatened. Power comes from the end of a gun barrel. These serial killers have their own holocaust by not giving blood transfusions to dying people. Leviticus 3:17 says to eat neither fat nor blood. Most hamburgers are 50% fat and they eat plenty of them. In a transfusion one does not eat blood but receives a carrier of nutrients essential to life. Most heathen religions have human sacrifice. JW serial killers sacrifice thousands every year by denying this gift of life. Every biblical reference to eating blood refers to animal blood. Pagans sacrificed animals to idols and drank their blood to honor them.
A court ordered a child to have a transfusion and a granite hearted JW overseer said, “I hope she gets hepatitis from this.” They left the cult after constant reminders left guilt feelings since their daughter was alive. JW’s divide and conquer tactics with psychological terrorism are masters at shredding families. If a wife swallows their lies but not the husband she is counseled to leave with the children. There is a more suitable marriage partner at the kingdom hell. These terrorists should surrender at The Hague for crimes against humanity. People were beheaded “for the witness of Jesus” not Jehovah, Buddha, Allah or Joseph Smith (Rev. 20:4).
HELL ON WHEELS
Fasten your seatbelts: After the Vancouver, Canada, epicenter meltdown pockets of resistance remained in suburbs. In Langley, Christ’s Witness (CW) with briefcase in hand approached as JW stood on a doorstep. Totally paranoid with signs of fear etched on his face he hurried to his car. In stomach churning terror in reverse with pedal to the metal and tires grinding against the curb in a cloud of blue smoke he backed around Armageddon Corner, 206A St. & 48B Ave., and went one block. Then the car with no muffler full of evilized Watchtower slaves like hell on wheels thundered into a dead end street. Reactions to this Shock & Awe shows they have no calcium in their backbones?
This spectacle is like a demolition Derby. Imagine driving backwards in a heavily populated area with children in harm’s way. It reminded me of running the bulls in Spain or demons entering 2,000 swine that ran violently over a cliff and choked in the sea (Mark 5:13). God’s grace kept people from dying. They stole the show! “Resist the Devil and he will run” (James 4:7). The devil has no legs for running so he uses legs of false prophets. Watchtower death squads wrap themselves in a cloak of Christianity but are wolves in sheep’s clothing.
JW children carry heavy briefcases that almost drag the ground. I recall young people on a farm that were deformed from carrying heavy pails of water for livestock. School children are warned not to carry heavy book packs on one shoulder but on their backs. Bags full of magazines and books pull arms out of sockets, warp minds and cause bodies to grow crooked. Students have neither time nor energy for studying after attending five meetings a week and going house to house. The Society takes all including their minds by daily lethal injections of lies. Brainwashing and sleep deprivation produce mindless zombies. At their 2005 conventions youth were told to not pursue higher education.
Life is cheap in this Auschwitz cult. God has a family not an organization. He is the Father and we are his adopted children, no longer slaves but sons and daughters (Gal. 4:5-7). Child and adult abuse is their normal lifestyle like living on death row. They discourage higher education so their best career is laboring in vain at their New York headquarters for $14 a month. That wage keeps slaves on their sweat-shop treadmill unable to buy a subway ticket or a hamburger. They are verbally flogged in their Kingdom Halls to produce more works. Christadelphians are duplicates of JWs.
In a panic attack on a Langley street, a woman shot from the lip: “Drop Dead Satan!” Another showed a letter of resignation he sent to a Kingdom Hall. Family and friends disfellowship and shun those who shed their sinister wolf hides. The rigid, homicidal, unloving, controlling, smothering, dictatorial environment causes 40% higher than average mental illness. Fear of Armageddon just around the corner, fear of elders for not attending five meetings a week, fear of insufficient hours on time sheets or fear of others constantly watching you is devastating. “Fear has torment” (1 John 4:18). One girl said, “I used to add hours to my time sheet to make it look good.” A woman said, “As teenagers we pretended to ring doorbells then wrote Not Home on our report. We were afraid of people constantly yelling at us.” Fear is the glue that holds this Saddam like regime of fear together and keeps them loyal to the cult. The whole scene is a heartless new dimension of the ghosts of Hitler and Molech revisited.
JW: “You stopping Jehovah’s Witnesses is like a flea sinking a battleship!”
CW: “What about a flea-like person, David, sinking the Philistine battleship with its Captain, Goliath?”
An elderly lady in full flight down a Langley sidewalk almost collided with a man going to work. He said, “I hope the poor woman doesn’t have a heart attack!” It was scary watching JWs out of control running through red lights as I held the cross.
AN APRIL FOOL JOKE!
JW stood on a doorstep in Cloverdale, BC. trying to adjust the thinking of a couple. I came, listened a few minutes, then asked, “Is Jesus your mediator?”
“He certainly is,” said JW. “He is mediator for all.”
“Are you of the heavenly class, the 144,000?” asked Christ’s Witness.
JW: “No, I am part of the great crowd, the earthly class.”
I showed him an April 1/79 Watchtower that reads, “Jesus is mediator only for the heavenly class, 144,000.” I continued: “If you are of the earthly class you have no mediator.”
The man, standing with his wife, noticed the article came from an April 1st issue and said, “It sounds like an April fool’s joke to me.” JW quickly grabbed his briefcase and left.
Another JW said, “Why do I need a mediator? I’ll not become a spirit creature and go to heaven; I’m staying on earth.” Most, including overseer, Dennis Einarson, Archerwill, Sask., don’t realize they are in the same boat as atheists totally fooled with no mediator. The 144,000 have a false mediator, a false Christ, Michael the Archangel a created being. JWs have spiritual whiplash from all their doctrinal changes. For over 50 years they said the 144,000 is an earthly not a heavenly class.
A circuit overseer, Auschwitz enforcer, evidently circling wagons appeared near my home. Broadly smiling, Mr. Prince, asked, “When are you going to become one of us?”
Opening the Bible, I showed him Christians are Christ’s Witnesses according to Acts 1:8. I gave him a Kingdomhallics Anonymous newsletter with the April fool’s joke. He read for a few minutes then told his driver to move on. A circuit overseer cracks his theocratic whip over several kingdom halls in his territory. His damage control was like rearranging Titanic deck chairs after hitting the iceberg. When cultists appear at your place, show them the Door. Jesus said, “I am the Door. By me if anyone enter in he shall be saved” (John 10:9). Those in the JW black hole talk about God’s kingdom but they have not found the Door. JWs often point to “Thy Kingdom come” in the Lord’s prayer (Matt. 6:9-13). But verse 12 “forgive our sins” is most important. Who can enter the kingdom without forgiveness? You might as well believe in Buddha for Michael the archangel, the false JW Jesus, cannot forgive sins. Jesus has power on earth to forgive sins (Mark 2:10). You can receive forgiveness of sins by confessing to a priest if you have the right Priest, Jesus Christ the Great High Priest (Heb. 4:14). How can you tell if a JW is lying? If his lips are moving he is lying.
WITCHTOWER FIST POWER
THE MASK SLIPPED!
January 12/02: My car rolled slowly from a Langley McDonalds parking lot as a fairly tall round faced man with pit-bull Al Qaida mentality approached. I stopped and rolled down the window. At that moment the rage-meter hit the max as his fist landed on my head. He ran the gamut of insanity and shouted, “You look depressed.” He dropped Jehovah Witness literature in my lap entitled “Comfort for the Depressed” then walked to his car after self-destructing in his “theocratic warfare.” I held high the Jesus cross as his car, full of slaves, sped away. They love darkness rather than light because their deeds are evil (John 3:19). If we do not warn wicked cultists their blood will be required at our hand (Ezek. 33:8,9). April 27/02: An elderly JW carrying Watchtower magazines in a briefcase gave me a fist to the jaw as I held the cross on 152 St., in White Rock, BC. There’s a lot of fist power in the Witchtower Society.
May 6, 2005: JWs received some help from a witch in Abbotsford, BC. I stood on a street with a Jesus sign. Soon a young lady dressed in black grabbed my cross, broke it in several pieces, threw it into traffic and walked home. Later, on her driveway, she turned to me saying, “Satan lives here!” She continued in a state of rage ordering me off her property. As a last resort she threatened to turn two pit bulls loose to drive me away. I said, “Bring them on. Dogs are my friends.” She opened her high fence gate and roared, “Attack! Attack!” The dogs ran up to me and I petted one of them. I then extended my hand and said, “In Jesus Name.” She became quiet and walked down the street. Jesus can close mouths of lions, witches or dogs. All cultists are satanists for Satan is the author of their belief systems. “Resist the devil and he will run” (James 4:7).
A FIST IN NEW YORK CITY!
In the Big Apple, our bus stopped on the third floor of the depot. Looking into concrete canyons from top of the Empire State Building, people appeared as ants choked in pollution. Breathing that air is suicidal like smoking two packs of cigarettes daily. A sign on the United Nations building reads, “They shall beat their swords into plowshares; neither shall they learn war any more.” Christ’s Witness rode the subway to Bethel, JW headquarters in Brooklyn, New York, with its offices, dorms, Bible school, dining room, printing plant and kingdom hall.
Bang! A fist to the jaw near Bethel showed concrete jungle reality. Two kinds of people are there, the quick and the dead. If you are not quick you are dead. Dazed but not out cold, I stepped back. The man dripped with acid and with a clenched fist said, “We’ll drive you Jehovah’s Witnesses out of Brooklyn Heights!”
I tried to calm the man: “I’m not a JW but a missionary from Canada bringing them the gospel of Christ.” A 100 foot sign hangs above the printing plant: “Read the Watchtower and Awake!” I had CLOCKTOWER papers in my briefcase. Hummm from presses filled the air as Watchtower slaves loaded trucks with printed materials and others unloaded food from kingdom farms as rail cars rolled in with newsprint for the presses.
The sun setting behind Manhattan skyscrapers presented a spectacular view as police sirens wailed and gangs rumbled. Christ’s Witness entered a kingdom hall and sat near the back. A delusional man stood and attacked all Christians. He sounded like a loose cannon not a straight shooter:
“In east New York is a slaughter house. Sheep will not go in willingly so a goat leads them. Ultra-selfish clergy of Christendom are like that goat.”
A friendly receptionist acting like Mr. Nice with a plastic smile invited me to join a printing complex tour. On every floor slaves worked feverishly to meet deadlines and men in leather aprons worked with hot lead typesetting materials as a blistering July sun shone through large windows. The intense heat as in Dante’s Inferno is ideal preparation for future hell fire.
In the ink room stood four, 450 gallon tanks with a three inch ink line going to presses. The tour completed, I stood behind parked cars and cried. It was heartbreaking to see people wasting their lives on that theocratic treadmill preparing spiritual junk food. In over 100 years they have not preached or printed a single saving truth. They might have printed general truth such as “Earth is not flat.” Their false Christ, Michael the Archangel, like Buddha cannot save. Jesus saves from sin (Matt. 1:21).
Heartless dehumanized overseers like Pharaohs of Egypt hold them hostage and set larger quotas: Work more hours! Sell more magazines! Hate with pure hatred! Raise more potatoes and beef! Give yourselves and your children as human sacrifices! Read only Watchtower materials! Sweat! Make bricks without straw! More is never enough. Chinese call it “death by a million cuts.” I accepted an invitation to join Bethel slaves for dinner. Their President prayed over an intercom. They had plenty of fat meat on tables. “Eat neither fat nor blood” (Lev. 3:17).
Christ’s Witness recently graduated from Bible College so he requested a tour of their school of heresy. To produce brainwashed stereotypical junkies and keep students “organization minded” their mind controlling study materials are bound volumes of back issues of Watchtower and Awake magazines. Truth was the first casualty in their teachings. They are mentally blind, spiritually dead, filled with fear, driven and weary from carrying a heavy cargo of mental and physical baggage. It is possible to reboot their brains by the gospel and prayer. In their scheme of things all is logical not theological or spiritual. In discussions, they usually pull up the draw-bridge of their minds. Christianity is not a dead heartless organization but a loving living organism.
JW’s FALSE CHRIST
“Do you believe in Jesus?” asked Christ’s Witness.
“We certainly do,” replied Jehovah’s Witness.
“Which Jesus do you believe in?”
Reaching into his briefcase, JW referred to his book, Make Sure of All Things (1965). Pointing to page 288 he showed that Jesus is Michael the Archangel, a created being. Paul warned of those who preach “Another Jesus,” a false Christ (2 Cor. 11:3-4; Galatians 1:8).
Cults have no credibility of their own so they use Christian words such as Jesus, heaven, resurrection and gospel but pour their meanings into them. You think you are on the same page while talking to them but are light years apart. Mormons say Jesus is a brother of Satan, a fallen angel, and JWs say he is an Archangel. Both have angels as false saviors. Muslims say Jesus is just a prophet for God could not have a Son and Unitarians say he is a fantasy but Christians know he is “God manifest in flesh who created all things” (John 1:1,3,14). Ken Copeland says Jesus was born again in hell. Buddhists say Jesus is just a prophet.
In the JW Bible all verses referring to Jesus as God are twisted like pretzels. Philippians 2:6,7 says Jesus was at the same time in “the form of God and in the form of a servant.” They only quote verses that refer to his humanity and end with just a good man like Adam. Arius (A.D. 250-336), started the created Jesus theory. Jesus is eternal from everlasting (Micah 5:2). He is 100% man and 100% God for a total of 200%. Anything less is a false Christ. Jesus retained his deity but took on an additional nature, human, to be our Savior. The eternal Father has an eternal Son.
Jesus said, “My Father is greater than I” (John 14:28). How can Jesus be equal to the Father when the Father is greater? The U.S. President is greater in office than all Americans but I am equal to him in nature; we both have flawed human nature. “In Christ dwells the fullness of God in bodily form” (Col. 2:9). As creator, he created out of nothing enough fish and bread to feed multitudes (Matt. 14). He stilled storms and raised himself from the dead. He said, “I will raise my body” (John 2:19-21).
CW: “Who has all power in heaven and earth”
JW: “I agree a President can be greater and at the same time equal to us but Jehovah has all power and is called Almighty but Jesus is mighty god in Isaiah 9:6.”
CW: “The Father is also called mighty God in Isaiah 10:21. He gave ALL POWER in heaven and earth to Jesus as seen in Matthew 28:18. How can a person have all power and not be Almighty? How much power is ALL POWER?”
JW: “It means SOME POWER,” said Joe in Langley.
There is no power struggle between Father and Son. At this time Jesus has all power but in the future he will hand power back to the Father (1 Cor. 15:28). Jesus is the only Super-power. He, not the Watchtower, is God’s sole channel of truth (John 14:6).
JWs and Branhamites believe firstborn means first created but it means the preeminent one, highest in rank or office (Col. 1:16-18). David, the last-born son of Jesse was made firstborn meaning highest of Kings (Psalm 89:20-27). Jesus is not first created but the one who began creation and “made all things” (Rev. 3:14; John 1:3). They falsified their Bible in Colossians 1:16-20 adding “other” five times to make Jesus a creature not the creator. The text now says Jesus created all other things implying Jesus himself was created first then became a junior partner in creation. They quote Psalm 83:18, “Jehovah is most high in all the earth.” This is from Old Testament times before Jesus came. Now the name, Jesus, is above every name (Phil. 2:9). They also added “other” in that verse and “a” in John 1:1 making Jesus a god not the God. Their Bible Pervesion achieved a total eclipse of the Son and is not endorsed by any reputable Bible scholar. Dr. Mantey, famous Greek scholar, ordered them to stop using his name. They added “corresponding” to describe Christ’s ransom making him just a man equal to Adam (1 Tim. 2:6). The ransom represents “much more” than Adam lost (Romans 5:17).
How can Jesus be Michael the Archangel when he is much better than angels and did not take their nature? (Heb. 1:4; 2:16). God never called an angel his Son (Heb. 1:5). Michael is one of a group of “Chief Princes” (Daniel 10:13). Jesus is in a class by himself, God’s ONLY begotten Son. Jude 9 says Michael is afraid of Satan but Jesus soundly rebuked him (Matt. 4:1-10). Wisdom in Proverbs 8 is the opposite of stupidity and has nothing to do with Jesus. “Wisdom is my sister” not my Savior (Prov.7:4). Jesus is never mentioned in the feminine gender. “Wisdom dwells with prudence” (8:12). If wisdom is Jesus, who is prudence? With whom is Jesus dwelling?
What about people who have different names for Jesus such as Yashuah, Yahweh etc? It depends on the meaning they pour into that name. It is acceptable if they agree that he is God in flesh who died for our sins, arose from the dead and forgives our sins. Anything less is a false Christ, just a prophet or Michael the Archangel (2 Cor. 11:3,4). Catholics also have a false Christ who cannot forgive sins but needs help from priests, Mary, saints, penance and purgatory. They can find forgiveness by confessing their sins to a priest providing they have the right Priest, Jesus Christ “The Great High Priest” (Hebrews 4:14). He has power on earth to forgive sins (Mark 2:10).
FALSE JW GODS
IN GODS WE TRUST!
“I’m puzzled about your teachings about God,” said Christ’s Witness. “Your Bible says Jesus is a god in John 1:1 and also says there is only one God in Isaiah 43:10. You have a big God, Jehovah, and a lesser God, Jesus, who is a god. Would you explain your two gods?”
Standing defiantly on a Langley street, JW answered: “Jesus is a god in the same way as the devil is a god. Satan must be a god for he offered Jesus kingdoms of this world in Matthew 4:8,9. He could not offer them to Jesus if he did not own them.”
Christ’s Witness answered: “The devil is not God but a created fallen angel who owns nothing. Psalm 24:1 says, ‘The earth, the world, and all who dwell there are the Lord’s.’ We cannot accept Satan’s words as truth. As the Father of lies there is no truth in him (John 8:44). He lied promising kingdoms to Jesus.”
October 26/02: Two JWs from Lynden, Washington sat in their car in Aldergrove, BC. They insisted there were no lies in the Bible. I pointed out the Devil’s lie that Adam and Eve could become gods (Genesis 3:5). I also told them of Jezebel’s lies but both strongly affirmed the Devil told the truth offering kingdoms to Jesus. They “change the truth of God into a lie” (Romans 1:25). With slight of mind they also change the Devil’s lies into truth?
There is only one true God and all the rest are devils. JWs have more hangups than a dry cleaner. They prophesied: “Jehovah will become the Heavenly Grandfather.”1 JWs & Mormons try to justify their Hindu based multiple god theory by quoting: “There are many lords and gods” (1 Cor. 8:5). Verses one to four show Paul is speaking of heathen idols and verse six says Christians have only one God. They also cite John 10:34 and Psalm 82:6: “You are gods.” These mortal unjust Judges of Israel thought they were gods enforcing harsh laws. Verse 7 says these so-called gods would die as men. Satan, the god, fallen angel, of this world and father of lies, is the supreme JW god (2 Cor. 4:4; John 8:44). He is the source of JW teachings which are 100% lies.
Cultists cannot tell the difference between creator and creation. The Father addresses the Son as God: “Unto the Son the Father says, Your throne O God is forever and ever” (Heb.1:8). JWs twisted this like a pretzel to read, “God is your throne.” God is never called a throne. The Father, Prophets, Apostles and Angels call Jesus God but not Jehovah’s Witnesses. Who is right? Jesus is O Immanuel, “The God with us” (Matt. 1:23 in Greek). Can Jesus be the God and a god at the same time?
There is a personal relationship between Father and Son. One loves and prays to the other so they are two distinct, separate persons. John 10:30 means both have one divine nature with the same attributes: eternal, everywhere present, all powerful and all knowing. John 17:11 refers to one in fellowship. The deity of Jesus was veiled in human flesh to suffer as the Lamb of God for our sins. JWs should build an altar to the unknown God.
J.W. overseer, Dennis Einarson’s teeth gnash together under the power of Satan. He thinks two Greek words in John 1:1, theos and theon, refer to two different gods, Jehovah and a lesser god, Jesus. In Greek, word endings indicate grammatical settings in a sentence. Theos is subjective and Theon is the objective case. Examples: (1) God, theos, loves me. (2) I love God, theon.
Pagans originally celebrated the birth of a false god on December 25th. Christians started a rival holiday celebrating the birth of Christ and wiped out the pagan ritual. The same happened to Easter when Christians celebrated the death and resurrection of Jesus and our new birth. Jesus can convert pagans and their holidays. Each day of the week is named after a pagan god: Thursday honors Thor, Viking god of thunder, and Saturday honors Saturn. We celebrate the rising of the Son from the dead on Sunday, the first day of the week. This miraculous event changed the day of worship of the early church and fulfilled Jewish animal sacrifices and feasts. The rest we have in Christ fulfills the Saturday Sabbath rest (Hebrews 4).
“Trinity” (triunity) is a Latin word coined by Tertullian in the 2nd century A.D. Tri is the Greek word for three. It refers to unity between Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Col. 2:9).
Jehovah’s Witnesses cannot comprehend this concept. They have a distorted definition of the Trinity from other cultists such as United Pentecostals, Apostolics or Branham who believe there is only one person, Jesus, in the Godhead. If this is true, Jesus prayed to himself and is his own father which does not make sense. Jesus was “with the Father before the world was” so there must be more than one (John 17:5). There are three separate persons all called God. Cultists point to some pagan religion that has a “trinity” of gods. For every false concept there is a true one. There is no such thing as a counterfeit $20 bill unless there is a true one.
A FALSE SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit is called God. Ananias and Sapphira lied to the Spirit; they lied to God (Acts 5:3,4). JWs say the Holy Spirit is a force like a radar beam or electricity. Can you imagine lying to a radar beam? He has feelings and can be grieved (Eph. 4:30). The Spirit bears witness with our spirit, helps our infirmities and is a person with a mind (Romans 8:16,26,27). Does a radar beam, electricity or wind have a mind? He also speaks and took part in creation (1Tim. 4:1; Genesis 1:2).
Jesus commanded us to baptize in the name of the Spirit (Matthew 28:19). He is named “Comforter” (John 16:7). God the Father is also a spirit person with neither flesh nor bones (John 4:24; Luke 24:39). Christians are filled with the Spirit and filled with the fullness of God (Acts 2:4; Eph. 3:19). This does not mean the Spirit or God the Father are liquid but refers to a relationship. Water is a symbol of the Holy Spirit (John 7:38,39). False prophets have a false Jesus, false spirit and false gospel (2 Cor. 11:4).
In New York, the Statue of Liberty is visible from the Statue of Slavery which is the Watchtower Headquarters.
WHAT IS GOD’S NAME?
“Over the centuries the correct pronunciation of the divine name in Hebrew was lost.”2
Christ’s Witness visited Mr. Wiser who had practiced JW religion for 60 years and attended Yale with former U.S. President, George Bush. Answering the door, he asked:
“What is God’s name?”
“My opinion is no better than yours. What does the Bible say? Read Exodus 3:13-15 in a different Bible. That passage is twisted like a pretzel in your New World perversion.”
Returning with a King James Bible, he read Moses’ conversation with God: “I AM... is my name forever.” With eyes like saucers, he said, “I never saw that before!”
When you talk to cultists always have them read the Scripture portion as in the above situation. The Word of God is quick and powerful and cuts through their programming.
My Father’s name is Dolph but I never addressed him on a first name basis, always Dad or Father. JWs use the name Jehovah in prayer but it is not biblical. Jesus taught his disciples to pray, “Our Father in heaven” (Matt. 6:9-13). The word Father shows a personal relationship. Jesus spoke to false prophets: “You are of your father the devil” (John 8:44). False prophets threw stones as Stephen prayed: “Lord Jesus, receive my spirit” (Acts 7:59). Here we see it is biblical to pray to Jesus. Dennis Einarson is dogmatic about using the name Jehovah. The only name that saves from sin is Jesus (Acts 4:10-12).
A JW book says: “700 years ago a Catholic monk of the Dominican Order made the name by adding vowels between Hebrew letters JHVH to form JeHoVaH.”3 They did not know there is no “J” in the Hebrew language. Why did they accept the choice of vowels by a Catholic who in their thinking is “the whore of Babylon that will bite the dust at Armageddon?” The name, Jehovah, does not appear in the 35,000 Greek New Testament manuscripts and no Hebrew or Greek scholars had part in producing the New World Translation. President Franz lied at a Scotland trial saying he knew original languages but failed a simple test. “Jehovah is a mis-pronunciation of the name of God, JHVH, and is grammatically impossible” (Jewish Encyclopedia, 160). The JW New World Bible perversion is their main weapon of mass seduction. They made it say what they want it to say.
THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS
JW: “What do you teach on the resurrection?” asked Mr. Wiser, a 60 year veteran of theocratic warfare, in a Langley restaurant on 208 Street.
Christ’s Witness answered: “Turn to John 2:19,20 and explain the resurrection to me.”
JW, with chest pounding inflated ego, said, “It is a good thing I brought my Bible.” He read, “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.”
CW: “What temple was Jesus talking about?”
JW: “Jehovah’s spiritual temple, the New Jerusalem.”
CW: “I don’t understand why Jesus wanted Jehovah’s spiritual temple, the New Jerusalem, destroyed. Read it again.”
JW repeats: “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.” Tom Wiser closed his Bible and with a piercing look said, “You are controlled by unseen forces. Why are you trying to tear Jehovah’s Witnesses apart with insignificant matters?”
CW: “The resurrection is no small matter. You still haven’t answered my question. What temple would be destroyed and raised in three days?”
JW: Like a cracked record: “Jehovah’s spiritual temple, the New Jerusalem!”
CW: “Read verse 21 to identify the temple.”
JW reads: “He spoke of the temple of his body!” With eyes like saucers he stared at it and said, “I never saw that before. One learns something new every day!” Jesus here prophesied his own death and resurrection. Imagine the blindness! With eyes wide shut he did not see this during 60 years of study. God’s Word cut through JW programming and went into his computer hard drive.
Walking to his car, CW continued: “You believe in a spirit resurrection. In your theology, Jesus body is forever dead and it turned into gases. The disciples made the same mistake thinking he changed to a spirit. Jesus corrected them in Luke 24:39 saying a ‘spirit has not flesh and bones as he had.’” Tom, getting into the back seat, became a totally unglued, fire breathing rageaholic in a self-destruct mode shouting insults as they drove away.
Resurrection always refers to raising the body. Jesus ate fish in a physical body after he arose (Luke 24:43). His glorified body had flesh, bones and nail prints but no blood since it was shed for us. If Christ did not overcome death in our place, we have no hope beyond the grave. The disciples did not recognize him after he came out to the tomb because their eyes were holden, veiled, but they knew him after their eyes were opened (Luke 24:16,31).
Later, Tom sat in a Langley donut shop and with an intimidating scowl said, “You will be looking out from behind prison bars soon for defamation of my character.”
Wayne answered: “If quoting you in the Clocktower paper defamed your character, you defamed yourself first by saying it. No one can effectively sue you if all you do is quote them.”
Is the JW Auschwitz in Archerwill, Porcupine Plains or Wadena Saskatchewan, holding you hostage in Algrove and shredding your family? Be liberated by Jesus. I declare the emancipation proclamation like Abraham Lincoln when he freed the slaves. Martin Luther King said, “Let Freedom Reign!”
Dennis Einarson’s reign of error and terror is over. Enough is enough! Churchill said, “There is nothing to fear but fear itself.” God put a brain in your head to enable you to think for yourself. In Watchtower brainwashing studies, all questions and answers are on the same page. Their motto is: Feel, Don’t Think. Come out of your prison and enjoy life. People that were abused and intimidated or had relatives killed or robbed by the JW Society should launch a class action suit. These wolves are morally equal to mobsters.
LIFE AFTER DEATH
JW asked: “Do you believe in the immortality of the soul? 1st Timothy 6:16 says only God has immortality. It is a pagan teaching for King Solomon said, “Man dies like a beast.”
God is eternally immortal; he will never die. Immortality in the human context refers to bodies not souls or spirits. “Jesus abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel” (2 Tim. 1:10). Human bodies are mortal but we “put on immortality” at resurrection (1 Cor. 15:54).
King Solomon built an altar to Molech after his 1,000 heathen wives turned his heart away from God (1 Kings 11:1-12). JW, Einarson, believes the words of this apostate king are good Christian teachings. It is biblical to name people who lie publicly (2 Tim. 4:14). Solomon’s suicidal lifestyle consisted of a colossal binge of wine, women and song, “Eat, drink and be merry” (Eccl. 8:15). From his vain humanist perspective he said man dies like a beast but he did not know if man’s spirit goes up or down at death (Eccl. 3:19-21). Seventh Day Adventists also believe that man dies like a beast and souls sleep. Souls do not sleep.
Later, after a change of heart, he said, “Remember your creator in your youth. The body returns to dust and the spirit returns to God who gave it” (Eccl. 12:1-7). Recognize who is speaking when quoting Scripture for God also inspired the recording of Jezebel’s and Satan’s lies (1 Kings 21; Gen. 3:5; Matt. 4:8,9). There is no truth in the devil (John 8:44). God the Father, prophets, Jesus and his apostles spoke the truth. The early church “continued in the apostles’ doctrine” not Solomon’s (Acts 2:42).
Jumping to confusions, JW said, “The soul is the body. When the body dies the soul dies. According to Ezekiel 18:4, souls that sin shall die.”
CW: “In that context, death does not mean a heart stopped for one can be physically alive and spiritually dead in sins (1 Tim. 5:6). It refers a person out of fellowship with God walking after his lusts like the prodigal son (Luke 15:32). After physical death, souls/spirits of Christians are “carried by angels” to the place of comfort, heaven, and souls of unbelievers go to the place of torment and will remain there until the last resurrection (Luke 16:22-31; Rev. 20:13). Luke’s account tells of “a great gulf” between the place of comfort and the place of torment. Just before his death, Stephen prayed to Jesus to “receive his spirit” (Luke 7:59,60). Heaven would be like hell to unbelievers who want nothing to do with God in this life.
Humans are “body, soul and spirit” (1 Thess. 5:23). We have material and immaterial natures, our inner and outer man (2 Cor. 4:16). At resurrection we receive glorified, visible bodies of flesh and bones (Phil. 3:21). After death, Christians are “absent from their bodies present with the Lord” (2 Cor. 5:8). Their souls are conscious in heaven (Rev. 6:9-11; 20:4). When Jesus returns with his saints, souls and resurrected bodies reunite (1 Thess. 3:13). Man can kill the body but not the soul (Matt. 10:28). A person’s soul is IN him (Psalm 42:5). At Calvary, Jesus’ spirit departed to the Father and he remained alive preaching to spirits, not bodies, in prison between his death and resurrection (Luke 23:46; 1 Peter 3:18,19). Moses and Elijah appeared with Jesus thousands of years after death (Matt. 17:1-4). The body sleeps not the soul! AWAKE!
A FALSE GOSPEL,
THE NEW EARTH NOT THE NEW BIRTH
IT IS A DOWN-TO-EARTH MESSAGE:
Jesus came DOWN-TO-EARTH from heaven
to save us from our sins (Matthew 1:21).
Jehovah’s Witnesses have no mediator, a false Christ, a false spirit, a false Bible, false gods and a false gospel so they invented a do-it-yourself way of salvation by works.
Gospel means good news. Paul said, “I declare unto you the good news that saves...Christ died for our sins and rose again” (1 Cor. 15:1-4). There is a vast difference between good news that saves from sin and JW good news that does not save. They pour a different meaning into the message and “pervert the gospel of Christ” (Gal. 1:7).
Imagine a person dying of cancer. The doctor standing at his bedside says, “Young man! I have good news for you!” The patient’s eyes sparkled for the last time. Looking up, he expected a message of hope perhaps a cure was found to save his life. Smiling, the doctor continued with his good news that did not save him: “The rainy season is over and the sun is shining.”
An angel, at Jesus’ birth, gave the same good news that saves: “Fear not for I bring you good news...unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior which is Christ the Lord” (Luke 2:10,11). Notice, the emphasis is on a Savior not a king in a kingdom. The kingdom of heaven is for those who are saved from their sins by believing in the death and resurrection of Christ.
JW said: “Noah preached the ark; Paul preached Christ but we preach the kingdom.” Noah was “a preacher of righteousness” not the Ark (2 Peter 2:5). He made animal sacrifices which pointed to Jesus. The whole sacrificial system in the Old Testament pointed forward to Christ. All that repented were in the Ark and all who repent and accept Christ are in the kingdom of Christ (Col.1:13). It is an exercise in futility to just preach the kingdom and expect to somehow be saved by a false Christ, Michael the Archangel, and good works.
Canada hosted Expo 86 and invited the world. Millions came by plane, car, boat and bus and arrived at the gate then found they needed a ticket to enter. The ticket into God’s kingdom is salvation through Christ not good works. Jesus told Nicodemus he would not enter it unless he was born again by believing in the one who would be lifted up at Calvary. According to Jesus, good news of the kingdom is not about the kingdom but it tells how to enter by the forgiveness of sins (see John 3:5 & verses 14-16). AWAKE!
Sept. 21/02: JWs sat in a Langley McDonalds. I asked, “What message did the disciples preach house to house?”
“Matthew 24:14,” answered one young man. Another said, “They preached the kingdom.” I told them to read Acts 5:42 which says, “Daily in the temple and in every house they did not cease to teach and preach Jesus Christ.” Paul “witnessed” saying “none other things but Jesus’ death and resurrection” (Acts 26:22,23).
The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth
(Matt. 5:5; Psalm 37:11).
Who are “the meek” mentioned by David and Jesus? In the same chapter David said, “They that wait upon the Lord shall inherit the earth” (v.9). Obviously, meekness is an attribute of believers who “wait upon the Lord.” David could be pointing to the future new heavens and earth after the present earth and works therein are burned up (Rev. 21; 2 Peter 3:10). It could also be a reference to the promised land where he fought Goliath and others.
Meekness is a quality of “holy people who trust in God” with changed hearts not just outward show of clothes, jewelry, fancy hairstyles and religious traditions (1 Peter 3:1-5). Jesus is also “meek” according to Matthew 21:5. Here we see meekness is an attribute of Jesus so, to inherit the earth, we must believe in him as Savior. This is why we must preach good news of Christ (1 Cor. 15:1-4). The gospel that saves from sin tells of THE NEW BIRTH not THE NEW EARTH. Jesus said, “You must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God (John 3:1-7).
The Comedy of Errors continues: JW overseer, Dennis Einarson, creates a climate of intimidation but is obviously biblically illiterate as we see when he stick-handles his way through his New World Perversion of the Bible. He gave me the book, Knowledge, that contradicts Paul who said, “I knew a man in Christ...who was caught UP to the third heaven...he was caught UP to Paradise” (2 Cor. 12:2-4). In JW thinking UP means DOWN so the book says Paradise is on earth not in heaven as Paul said. Jesus told the thief at Calvary they would be together in Paradise, the third heaven (Luke 23:43).
The JW Bible and Knowledge book misquote John 17:3. It says eternal life comes by “taking in knowledge.” In Greek, taking in, lambano en, is not in the text. You can have knowledge of someone and not know him. You must know Christ as personal Savior not just know about him (2 Tim. 1:12). JW head knowledge is “ever learning and never coming to knowledge of the truth” (2 Timothy 3:7). “Knowledge puffs you up” (1 Cor. 8:1). They say, “We attend five meetings a week for we are leaky [cracked] vessels.” The devil, not God, makes leaky vessels. Christians are “vessels unto honor fit for the Master’s use” (2 Tim. 2:21). Their whole belief system leads to spiritual and intellectual suicide.
JW asks: “What is the theme of the Bible? I see it as God’s kingdom as prophesied in Daniel 2:44 and Matthew 24:14. That is why we preach the good news of the kingdom telling the world God will set up a kingdom on earth.”
CW: “The theme of Scripture is Jesus not the kingdom. The blood of the Passover lamb in Exodus 12 is a shadow of the blood of Jesus, our Passover Lamb (1 Cor. 5:7). The whole Jewish sacrificial system pointed to Jesus. They looked forward to Calvary and we look back to it for salvation. Leaving our sins at the cross makes us acceptable to enter the kingdom of God whether it be the new earth or heaven. People are translated into the kingdom of Jesus when they believe the gospel and repent (Col.1:13).
JW: “Christ did not die on a cross; it was an upright pole, a torture stake, with one nail through both hands.”
CW: “That idea has no basis in Scripture since John 20:25 speaks of nails, more than one. The Greek word kulon is translated cross in Acts 5:30 and stocks in 16:34. Since the same word refers to both, it means something made of wood with no reference to shape. Persians invented the cross centuries before Christ. The meaning of Calvary is lost if we focus on shape and fail to see the gospel of Christ that he died there for our sins as our substitute the Just for the unjust (1 Cor. 15:1-4). People were burned at stakes but crucified on crosses. The cross and blood point to death, the central theme of the good news. Jesus, our sin offering, paid our death penalty. Archaeologists found a man on a cross with nails intact. JWs make a mockery of Christianity.
Israelites served 400 years as slaves in Egypt then found freedom and entered the promised land that later became a kingdom ruled by King Saul. What made it possible for them to break their bondage as slaves in Egypt and enter that kingdom?”
JW answered: “Moses led them out. Our leaders always direct us to kingdom truth.”
CW: “That is precisely where JWs miss the gospel in Old and New Testaments. The Passover lamb’s blood on doorposts brought them out, through the Red Sea into the kingdom (Exodus 12:22,23). Blood of our Passover Lamb, Jesus, not Michael, purging our sins is the only way to get into God’s kingdom.”
For salvation, JWs trust what they DO not what Jesus has DONE for them at Calvary. They teach: “Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling” (Phil. 2:12). Salvation is an inside job, a change of granite hearts as God works in us (v.13). Working out salvation that was not worked in is like working water out of a dry sponge. Religion is an outside job consisting of clothes, rituals, traditions, laws, works and plastic smiles. We are not saved by works but for good works. JW “slaves” are not allowed to think for themselves and their gospel does not save but enslaves them. Their satanic organization is the puppeteer and they are puppets, stereotypes, all made with the same heretical cookie cutter. With all the extrinsic motivation and brainwashing there is no room for intrinsic motivation to channel energies in some worthwhile individual pursuits. Salvation is not earned but received as a free gift paid for by Jesus (Eph. 2:8-10).
Imagine men working in a chain gang but from a distance you cannot see the chain nor the taskmaster with his whip. You might say, “My what zeal!” JWs appear zealous in their performance based system driven by dehumanized overseers with no heart or soul who help them misunderstand the Bible.
Jesus foretold wolves in sheep’s clothing would try to enter heaven by “many wonderful works and prophesying.” He will say, “Depart from me; I never knew you” (Matt. 7:15-22). They teach Christ died for Adam’s transgression not for our sins but Isaiah said, “He was wounded for our transgressions” (53:5). “Christ died for our sins” (1 Cor. 15:3). We will not enter God’s kingdom dressed in rags of our own self-righteousness. Our only hope is “the gift of righteousness” (Romans 5:17; Eph. 6:14).
JW: “Jesus was a witness of Jehovah and pointed to him as the way of salvation. We as Jehovah’s Witnesses do the same.”
CW answered: “That is not true for Jesus pointed to himself: “I am The Way, Truth and Life. No one comes to the Father [who is in heaven] but by me” (John 14:6). He also pointed to himself when speaking to Nicodemus (John 3:1-16). We have a referral ministry like John the Baptist who witnessed of “the True Light”, Jesus, and said, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:1-12 & 29).
JWs teach salvation is future, based on enduring to the end but without salvation we have no spiritual strength to endure. Paul said to put on God’s armor including the helmet of salvation then run the race. A race car driver puts on his helmet at the beginning not at the end of a race. Why complicate salvation? In Eden, sin came between us and God. At Calvary, our sins were purged by Jesus and our fellowship with God is renewed by forgiveness.
Accept Christ by praying, “Jesus, I am a sinner. Forgive my sins and be my Savior, Amen.” If you prayed from your heart, all your sins were credited to Jesus’ account and his perfect righteousness was credited to yours. The first step to salvation for most is the church step. It was there they heard the gospel of Christ and found forgiveness of sins.
THE KINGDOM OF GOD & OF HEAVEN
The words, Kingdom of God and Kingdom of Heaven are used interchangeably in Jesus’ parable of the sower (Matt. 13:1-11; Mark 4:1-11). The kingdom of heaven on earth contains both evil and good people which will be separated by Jesus at the end of the world (Matt. 13:47-50). The kingdom is not only future but also present. It began like a seed and has its final fulfillment when the New Jerusalem comes out of heaven to a new earth (Rev. 21). One will enter heaven by only one way, Jesus (John 3:1-16). No man comes unto the Father [who is in heaven] except by him (John 14:6). Paradise is heaven (2 Cor. 12:2-4).
A NON-PROPHET ORGANIZATION WITH A DIZZYING LIST OF FAILED PREDICTIONS:
A second April Fool joke is found in the April 1st 1972 Watchtower. JWs here claim to be the last day prophet: “Who is this prophet? This prophet was not one man but a body of men and women, a small group of footstep followers of Jesus Christ known then as International Bible Students. Today we call them Jehovah’s Christian Witnesses.”
In contrast, the Bible says Jesus is that Prophet: “God spoke in times past by prophets but in these last days has spoken to us by his Son” (Heb. 1:1,2). The law and prophets continued until John the Baptist (Luke 16:16). Prophets today are inferior to them since their words are not Scripture. A broken clock is right twice a day but all JW prophecies of the past 125 years failed. They lost their compass and predicted the end of the world at least seven times. A follower of Jesus is not always a disciple. Some followed for fridge benefits, loaves and fishes. In lock-step JWs follow blind leaders to their own destruction. Cyanide in print continues:
“1914, at that date the kingdom of God for which our Lord taught us to pray saying, Thy kingdom come, will obtain full and universal control and will be set up or firmly established in the earth on the ruins of present institutions.”4
God did not set up his kingdom in the earth so they changed it to read, “in the heavens.”5 Like magicians they use slight of mind and hand to deceive. Repackaged prophecy is not new light but new lies as truth does not become truer and truer. We need no new light for Jesus is the true light (John 1:9). They claim their revelations came from God “making him a liar”(1 John 1:10).
PREDICTION ADDICTION CONTINUES: Compare dates:
(1) “1872 marks the end of 6,000 years since Adam’s creation.”6
(2) “1975 marks the end of 6,000 years since Adam’s creation.”7 Pastor Russell, JW founder (1852-1916), lied, “The present great war in Europe is the beginning of Armageddon.”8 He measured “the great stone witness” Egyptian pyramid, Cheops, then changed inches to years to confirm his 1914 date.9 The end did not come so in a later edition he added inches and a later date. He sold expensive “Miracle Wheat” and promised an above average crop. The scam was exposed after crops were only average.
False prophets invent self-fulfilling prophecies like shooting an arrow into a tree then painting a bull’s eye around it. Judge Rutherford, their next president, rejected pyramidology.
JWs “in 1929 built a mansion, Beth-Sarim in San Diego, California, as a testimony to Jehovah’s name. It is tangible proof there are those on earth who believe in God, Jesus and his kingdom.”10 Abraham, Isaac, Daniel, David and others in Hebrews chapter eleven were expected to rise from the dead and live there and the deed was in their names. They did not show up to take charge of God’s kingdom on earth so Rutherford lived there until his death in 1942. With two Cadillacs and a mansion he was the first fake opulent religious role model for health and wealth television preachers like Kenneth Copeland and Hagin today.
I have heard very emotional stories of JWs robbing old people. They masquerade as friends then convince them to will their estates to the cult. After the funeral, family members find there is nothing left. That cash cow enables them to buy real estate in Brooklyn, New York, for hundreds of millions.
Dr. Walter Martin told this story:
“Let’s forget I am a Baptist and you are Jehovah’s Witness. Think of me as a business man and you a sales person. I placed orders with you six times but no supplies showed up. Should I place another order?”
“I think I would have given up after the first order failed to arrive,” replied JW.
Walter answered: “You had at least six failed predictions of God’s kingdom coming to earth. Should I take your 1975 date seriously?” They continue to update shop-worn prophecies.
“Jehovah’s Witnesses suffered more back door losses than other groups. Analysis of the sect’s own reports show 335,000 people have left the Witnesses since 1972 and since the End mysteriously failed to materialize in 1975 the number of new baptized Witnesses has suddenly dropped by a third.”11
“True, there have been those in times past who predicted an end to the world even announcing a specific date. The end did not come. They were guilty of false prophesying.”12
The law condemned false prophets to death after failed predictions (Deut. 18:20-22). False expectations ruin people’s lives. After the 1975 doomsday prediction, many left jobs to preach “kingdom truth.” They thought it futile to go to school, paint houses, have children or fix teeth. Later, false teeth were the only option and now several generations are virtually brain dead due to limited education. Their spin doctors invented a theory and continued to cry “Wolf” after the end did not come:
“There was a time lapse between the creation of Adam and the creation of Eve. If the time difference was six months, the end would come in six months, if a year, the end would come in a year.” Previous JW literature said both were created the same year. They suffer from spin fatigue like politicians of our day. For years, Awake magazine mentioned “the creator’s promise of a peaceful and secure new world before the generation that saw the events of 1914 passes away.” They deleted that empty promise since nearly all from that time are gone and the new world has not come. They should read their tea leaves again.
Some say not to judge others but the Bible says, “Let two or three prophets speak and let others judge” (1 Cor. 14:29). “Judge righteous judgment not by appearance” (John 7:24). “Judge not and you will not be judged” refers to hypocritical judgment, focusing on a speck in another’s eye with a beam in yours (Matt. 7:1-3). We cannot judge people’s eternal destiny, heaven or hell, but we can judge their words. Paul commended Bereans for judging his preaching by comparing it with God’s standard, the Scriptures (Acts 17:11). Prophecy today is not to predict the future but to edify, exhort and comfort others (1 Cor. 14:3). Jesus foretold the future to the end of the world in Matthew 24, Mark 13, Luke 21 and Revelation so there is nothing new to say.
85 years ago, JWs called their magazine, The Watchtower and Herald of Christ’s Presence. The Dec., 1916 edition reads: “For 40 years the Lord has been present” so Jesus came in 1876. Later they said he came invisibly in 1914. Now they have discarded that date and are waiting for new light. They blame God for their lies calling themselves God’s Theocratic Organization. Why speculate about the second coming of Christ when millions have not heard of his first coming? In JW theology it is the second coming of Michael the Archangel. “I have not sent them said the Lord, yet they prophesy a lie in my name” (Jeremiah 27:15).
If prophets are allowed to correct mistakes, there is no such thing as a false prophet. They must be right 100% of the time. No true prophet says, “I must correct my last prophecies.” Pastor Russell said, “New light does not contradict old light.”
“A PEDOPHILE PARADISE”
Dateline, NBC TV, May 28/02: JW leaders, Phil Bowen and others, blew the whistle on sexual abuse in their cult. “It is a massive problem as all cases are kept in secret files. They do not report these crimes to police but are covered up by a committee of elders which is their own judicial system. Victims fear shunning and excommunication so remain silent. They are molested, silenced and brainwashed to believe there is no eternal life outside the cult.” Eternal life is only in Jesus (John 6:68; Acts 4:10-12).
On Dateline they phoned the legal department of the Watchtower in Brooklyn, New York.
They answered: “Did you confront the abuser?”
“If he says ‘No’ just walk away from it. It is not Jehovah’s time to deal with it.” Abusers continue in home visitation. They refer to 1 Timothy 5:19 where two or three witnesses are needed to accuse an elder. Imagine sexually abusing someone in the presence of several witnesses! This is done privately and denied.
JW founder, Charles Russell, said if a person studied only the Bible he would be in darkness by the end of two years but if he studied with the help of JW books he would stay in the light.
Feb./04: I held a large banner on the sidewalk beside the JW Assembly hall north of Honolulu, Hawaii. It read: “christswitness.com Acts 1:8 Jesus Saves, Matthew 1:21.” Soon some heavies showed up. A tall man with chest-pounding inflated ego said, “The sidewalk is our private property. Leave immediately or I will call the Jesus Cops to move you out of here.” The stand-off ended and they left at Mach 5 speed when police came and informed them the sidewalk is public property. When they are wrong about a sidewalk how can they be right about Jesus? Their New World Bible perversion guides them into all error.
A JW in Chilliwack, BC. said he joined the Society 40 years ago but he did not know what it means to be saved so I showed him Matthew 1:21. Also, he did not know what message the disciples preached from house to house so I showed him Acts 5:42.
WHERE IS HELL ?
JWs say their founder “turned the hose on hell” but it has not cooled. Huxley popularized Darwin’s theories and said, “Earth is another planet’s hell!” It has no exits and was “enlarged” to make room for all that do not accept Jesus as Savior from sin (Isaiah 5:14). JWs share their abundance of ignorance: “Hell is the grave, six feet deep.” Three Greek words are translated “Hell” in the King James Bible and various metaphors describe it:
1. Tartaros is a place for sinful angels (2 Peter 2:4).
2. Hades has two compartments and is a place of departed spirits not bodies. A beggar died and his spirit was “carried by angels” to the “Abraham’s bosom” area of Hades. People at the rich man’s funeral burned incense but did not realize his spirit was already in the tormenting section of Hades. A great gulf separates the two compartments (Luke 16:22-31). The same Greek word for torment “basanois” describes one grievously tormented with palsy (Matt. 8:6). Spirits of Christians who have crossed the finish line are present with the Lord (2 Cor. 5:8; Rev. 6:9-11).
3. Gehenna is “everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels” (Matt. 25:41). It was not prepared for humans but they decided to follow the devil. Hell is not temporary for the same Greek word is used to describe eternal punishment and eternal life (v.46). Unbelievers enter it after the last resurrection and judgment. JWs say it is a garbage dump near Jerusalem where fires burned continuously. God will cast the devil into Gehenna to be tormented for eternity (Rev. 20:10). This does not mean he will burn eternally in a Jerusalem garbage dump. There are various rewards in heaven and degrees of punishment in hell (Luke 12:45-48). Even in our society punishment fits the crime. A serial killer does not receive the same sentence as one who goes five miles over the speed limit. Christians are not judged for their sins for Jesus was found guilty in their place and paid the death penalty for them at Calvary.
4. Mnamei: “All in graves, mnamei, shall hear his voice and come forth. They that have done good to a resurrection of life and evil-doers to a resurrection of damnation” (John 5:28,29). “Graves, mnamei, were opened and bodies of saints that slept arose” (Matt. 27:52). Notice, graves and hell are translated from different Greek words. Jesus called Lazarus out of his grave, mnamei, not out of his Hades (John 12:17). Where on earth is hell fire? The Bible says it is in our tongues (James 3:6).
JWs do not vote and do not believe in politicians. However their Bible says “to pray for kings and all in authority that we might live in peace” (1 Tim. 2:1-4), so all should be active in politics through prayer. “Civil rulers are ministers of God, revengers to execute wrath upon evil doers,” Sama bin Laden and others (Romans 13:1-4). According to this, there are just wars. The American flag flew over JW headquarters in New York until they changed their doctrine. The Maple Leaf and Star Spangled Banner still wave o’er the land of the free and home of the brave! Be a brave Jesus Witness (Acts 1:8).
Some think holding a cross and preaching near Kingdom Halls and on streets is a rather heavy handed approach. If you were sick near death, doctors would not hesitate to force-feed you. That is what I am doing for these cultists. While witnessing at JW headquarters in New York a newspaper article told of a decline in the city crime rate. The Mayor was often seen on streets talking to gang leaders, drug pushers and others so they asked him if his presence helped reduce crime. He replied, “It is not enough for me to be out of sight in my office. We need visible government.” We need visible Christianity. Let your light shine by your lifestyle, by holding a cross, by witnessing or any other way. Early Christians burning at stakes was true visible Christianity. If you were charged with being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? Let’s hang together or they will hang us separately! Print and distribute this.
