While studying today, a Jehovah Witness noticed my open Bible and came over to try and evangelize me by offering me some of their material. I politely turned her offer down. We talked
for a bit and I shared that I was a Pastor at Trinity Church, and she was very "happy" to hear that, and basically implied that we Christians needed to stick together. She then dismissed herself.
Let me outline some serious differences:
They do NOT believe in the Trinity, which is common in most false faiths, which is why we must uphold it.
They do Not believe Jesus was fully man and fully God, but was created by God as the archangel Michael, but became the son of God when he, the angel, became man on earth.
They do Not believe in Jesus’ bodily resurrection from the dead.
They do NOT believe we are saved by grace alone.
They do NOT believe that all believers go to heaven, only 144,000, and the rest stay on earth.
They believe Jesus’ second coming already took place in 1914.
They will sell a message that we have so much in common, but not at all.
Know what you believe!
