The Jehovah Witnesses are unsaved
How can anyone go to door with a gospel they themselves do not believe in? Answer: By being confused.
How can anyone be unsaved and offer a gospel that does not save? Answer: By believing an organization instead of the Scriptures.
These points will be unequivocally proven by their own quotes and the Bibles word of truth that they deny because they follow their organization that has cut them off from the mediator Jesus Christ the savior,
No resurrection, therefore no gospel
From early on they have a different gospel which is no gospel at all.
“We deny that he raised in the flesh, and challenge any statement to that effect as being unscriptural.” (Founder -The Finished Mystery p.57 1917)
“Jesus as a man must remain dead for ever.” (Government p.110 1928)
"He slept in death for parts of three days, and then Jehovah God resurrected him to life as a mighty spirit being" (Knowledge, p. 68).
“This firstborn from the dead was raised from the grave, not a human creature, but a spirit” (Let God Be True)
How does a spirit get raised if it goes into non existence, (their teaching not mine).
"Jesus Christ was not made a human creature at his resurrection but was made a spirit, which accounts for his invisibility (WT 4/1/1947, pp. 1.01-2)
“…Jehovah God disposed of the sacrificed body of his son. (WT 8/1/1975 p.479)
All resurrections in the Bible were those in the same body. Check on this if you do not believe mej
Jn. 2:19 Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days. V.21 Destroy this temple He was speaking of the temple of His body (soma -- Greek - body not spirit not soul – body) did Jesus lie or misrepresent what he would do?
If you don't believe in the resurrection of the body you are lost, unsaved, have a religion without power.
1 Cor 15:14-15 And if Christ is not risen, then our preaching is empty and your faith is also empty. Yes, and we are found false witnesses of God, because we have testified of God that He raised up Christ, whom He did not raise up-- if in fact the dead do not rise.
1 Cor 15:17 And if Christ is not risen, your faith is futile; you are still in your sins!
So what can a Jehovah Witness defend on this, after all they have dozens of denial statements that Christ did not rise from the dead. But this does not stop them from telling people "We cannot claim to love God, yet deny his word and channel of communication." (The Watchtower, October 1, 1967, p. 591.)
Here we have them say that God speaks to them its not by the Bible alone whom Jesus said "He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me. (John 14:24) On the denial of the resurrection alone it is proven they do not keep his word.
So for over 1,800 years no one could understand the Bible until their founder came along? "We all need help to understand the Bible, and we cannot find the Scriptural guidance we need outside the ‘faithful and discreet slave' organization." (The Watchtower, Feb. 15, 1981.)
“To receive everlasting life in the earthly Paradise we must identify that organization and serve God as part of it” (The (Watchtower, February 15, 1983: 12).
So no one had the Holy Spirit before their organization was formed by their now dead founder? The irony is that even their own members are kept from receiving everlasting life, because this paradise on earth is the kingdom Jesus spoke of, they think the kingdom is excluded to heaven a with only 144,000 enjoying it. WRONG!
"Thus the Bible is an organizational book and belongs to the Christian congregation as an organization, not to individuals, regardless of how sincerely they may believe that they can interpret the Bible." The Watchtower, Oct. 1, 1967. p. 587. )
This is one of the criteria’s of a cult, saying to those who love God and have salvation that without them you have nothing. Yet my Bible says without the Gospel you have nothing, no Holy Spirit, no salvation, no understanding, you are in danger of the judgment.
They claim Jesus is a mediator of but a few. “Jesus mediatorship operates solely toward those in the new covenant,” (Insight on the Scriptures p.362)
The problem is that the New Covenant is only for 144,000 not those who are the in their organization that go door to door. Again this means no gospel, because Jesus is the new covenant, then you have no mediator.
Heb 9:15 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death,
Heb 12:24 to Jesus the Mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling that speaks better things than that of Abel.
Heb. 9:15 And for this reason He is the Mediator of the new covenant, by means of death
Heb. 13:12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood
Heb. 13:20 the blood of the everlasting covenant,
If you do not have Jesus as your mediator then you are not in covenant with God, your sins are not forgiven and all you are doing is religious work. You are no better off than Roman Catholics. Jesus death is the covenant, He is the mediator.
Only a limited number are born again. The great crowd does not need to be born again. Their life is earthly, not heavenly (WT 4/1/1988, p. 1)
The Bible says, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God." (John 3:3)
The Jehovah witnesses need to prove the kingdom is not on earth when Jesus returns. The Bible says it is. Why would Jesus teach to pray Your kingdom come? Matt 6:10
His kingdom comes to earth when He returns 2 Tim 4:1 “I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:”
Matt 25:32-34 "All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. "And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left."Then the King will say to those on His right hand, 'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:”
So then no Jehovah Witness will be in this kingdom for a number reasons, two of the main ones. 1) of they die they will not be resurrected, they go out of existence and God will make a copy of them. 2) The kingdom is not seen unless you are born again which 99.9% of those in their organization are not, they are prevented from being one of the 144,000.( notice they are not a church, they are not owned by Christ)
“Members of the great crowd are not participants in the new covenant. However, they associate with the Israel of God and live with them in their "land." While not participants in the new covenant, they are beneficiaries of it. (WT-Feb. 1, 1998 p.24) You are either in the covenant or you are not, there are no OTHER mediators just as there are no OTHER Gods (Jn.1:-3 they have two gods Jehovah and Jesus a big and small god)
Eph 1:6-7 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He has made us accepted in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace.”
Eph 2:5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)”
My next point is a question to you the reader. Why would you want to join an organization that keep’s you from salvation that is by God’s grace. A organization that denies the gospel that saves, saying Jesus is forever dead and did not raise bodily from the dead.
