About The Jehovah’s Witnesses
History and Beliefs The Jehovah's Witnesses are one of the most aggressive and fastest growing cults with a worldwide organization that numbers about 3.5 million members operating in 205 countries. Several factors account for this rapid growth. The first is their zealous door-to-door evangelism. Their missionary forces are the best trained in evangelism of all the cults and very few Christians are aware of any details of the false doctrines they propagate and the fact that they have re-written their Bible to back up their teachings.
The Deity of Christ
Is Jesus Really Michael the Archangel? JWs have been taught to believe that God the Father alone is "Jehovah," the only true God; that Jesus Christ is Michael the archangel, the first angelic being created by God; and that the Holy Spirit is neither God nor a person, but rather God's impersonal "active force One of the strongest arguments against Jesus being an angel is found in the book of Hebrews. In chapter one, the writer of Hebrews showed the superiority of Jesus over the angelic beings, and contrasted Him with them.
Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Worship of Jesus Jehovah’s Witnesses have attempted to circumvent the obvious references to Jesus accepting worship by changing the word “worship” in their New World Translation to “obeisance” every time the Greek word proskuneo (the most prominent word for worship in the New Testament) is used in reference to Jesus. But is this justified? [Includes What Did the Church Fathers Say About the Trinity? And John 1:1.. God or A god?]
Two Claims of The Watchtower Examining two extraordinary claims. One that Jesus Christ returned to earth in 1914 and that The Watchtower Society was handpicked by Christ as God’s only channel of communication to man in 1919.
What about the 144,000 Many Christians are puzzled when the familiar door-knockers, the Jehovah's Witnesses, tell them they don't want to go to heaven-- they intend to live right here on earth, and furthermore, only 144,000 can go to heaven. Where is this Biblical number of 144,000 found, and does it mean that only 144,000 go to heaven? Not exactly.
Jehovah’s Witnesses and Luke 23:43 Like some other controversial groups, the JWs believe that, at death, human beings cease to exist as persons. That is, they deny that there is an immaterial soul or spirit which can exist as a personal being, apart from the body. This position is obviously contradicted by Jesus' promise to the thief that he would be with Him in Paradise "today." By changing the position of the comma, however, "today" is shifted away from "you will be with me in Paradise" and placed alongside "truly I say to you." Thus the idea that Jesus and the thief went to Paradise immediately after their deaths is eliminated.
The Watchtower Society and Medical Quackery Unknown to most outside Jehovah's Witnesses-and in many cases JWs themselves-is their long history of quack medical endorsements which put the health of millions of their followers at risk, or caused the premature deaths of untold thousands. The Watchtower Society has even endorsed some of the most notorious medical quacks of the twentieth century

That Jesus Christ is Himself YHWH, God Almighty come in the flesh, is so obviously taught in Scripture that it is baffling to hear some who claim adherence to the Bible deny it.
