Can I ask you a few questions about the Bible? On John 1.
I have read that the Watchtower stated that your organization alone can give you the correct understanding of the Bible. You believe it is important to have correct knowledge on John 1:1-3?
You are monotheists, correct? They will answer yes.
So you believe Jehovah is the only true God, correct?
who is this other one called "a god" in john 1? They will tell you he is like the almighty, he is a mighty god.
Why do you have another god, “a god” in verse 1 besides Jehovah? I thought you said you were monotheists.
Help them count them again and say Jn.1:1 has two Gods according to your teaching-- two Gods not one.
Can you explain to me in your translation why it says that Jesus is a god?
What kind of god is he? Is he a true god or a false god? Don't you believe there is only one God?
If Jehovah the Father is God (that's one) and now the Son is called God, that’s two isn’t it? Have them count them, out loud as you read together.
If God says there is only one God how can there be two, even if one is called mighty and the other almighty?
If there is only one TRUE God, what God would the Bible be talking about when it says “the great God” or “mighty God”?
Mary calls God mighty in Lk.1:49. Jer.32:17-18 tells us," the mighty God whose name is the LORD of hosts". Is Jehovah the lord of hosts? Isn't this the same mighty God in Isa.9:6 that the Son is called. If mighty means lesser, wouldn’t this mean Jehovah himself would be a lesser God?
If God says there is only one God it doesn’t matter if one is called mighty or almighty alongside the other you call Jehovah. One of them is a false God- which one is it? Please give me the correct answer.
Does not God say that he alone is the creator who made everything in the Old Testament (and New). They will say yes (possibly). Because they really believe Jehovah made only one thing, Michael the archangel (who they claim is Jesus). This where you ask them to read the Old Testament Scripttures starting with Gen.1 where God made the heavens and the earth and created throughout the 6 days and rested on the 7th.
Does not the bible says in Jn.1:3 “All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made." Isn't that speaking of Jesus?
Can you explain Col 1:15 in your translation, which says “all other things” when it says here all things. Are there two creators?
Acts 7:50 Has My hand not made all these things?'
Jeremiah 14:22 Are You not He, O LORD our God? Therefore we will wait for You, Since You have made all these. Also Isa 42:5,12
Rev 4:11"You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created."
Don’t these scriptures and other tell us that God, Jehovah created all things? They will agree.
Why does it say in Heb.1:10 The Father speaking of the Son, “And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning has laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of your hands...
Isaiah 48:12-13 "Listen to Me, O Jacob, and Israel, My called: I am He, I am the First, I am also the Last.Indeed My hand has laid the foundation of the earth, and My right hand has stretched out the heavens; when I call to them, they stand up together.”
Who is this speaking of?
