I do hope that all is well with as we all go through our days here on GOD’s earth. What I have to share with you is about false teachings. And these false teaching are any so-called religion that does not teach about salvation, accepting JESUS as savior. For our beloved JESUS is the only way to heaven. Not by good works.
My friends, I have known many people who were Jehovah witnesses. Some come to my door and some I work with. And all of them are polite, well meaning people. But none of them have accepted JESUS as their savior. And for those of us that know what true salvation is….it is accepting JESUS as savior for HE is the only way into heaven to be with the FATHER GOD.
1 John 4:1
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
King James Version (KJV)
And when we do not accept our beloved JESUS as savior you will not be going to heaven. If you demote JESUS as just a man, not celebrate Christmas as the birth of JESUS, don’t acknowledge JESUS as the one and only way to heaven, feel their is not hell, you will get into heaven by doing good works, will not pray with a true believer of JESUS CHRIST as savior, and do not share the body of CHRIST JESUS you have rejected your salvation.
And if you lead people away from JESUS, that is not good either. The Bible that the JW’s read was altered. And this was done by the people who was part of the watchtower of 1879. Originally it was called “Zion’s Watchtower and Herald of Christ’s Presence” By Charles Taze Russell a descendent of Scott-Irish parents. Read more about him here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Taze_Russell . They were an all white group of men who sat down to rewrite the Bible to how they saw fit. He and his dad were associated with William Miller and George Storrs. Read more about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Watchtower. These men were able to what they thought were predicting the exact time when JESUS was to return.
Now see the Bible I read says:
“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”
King James Version (KJV)
With this verse alone will tell you that what they are told through Mr. Russell is not correct. And here is some more from the KJV of the Bible below.

False prophets will say they are JESUS or someone will say they know when JESUS is coming and will return to earth. This is what Mr. Russell and the men in his association of watchtower believers. You know there are from what I have read that there are around 8 million people caught up in this? That means there are that many people who have not been saved and taught any thing about the truth of salvation from following this religion!
Here is more information that a Pastor named Time Challies who gave his thoughts on this topic. https://www.challies.com/articles/the-false-teachers-charles-taze-russell/ . I find this interesting too.
Mr. Russells beliefs come from Arianism according to what I have read. I was not quite sure what that was. When looking it up…this was not good either. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arianism.
So he had his thoughts on race as well that was not GODLY form what I understand too. They have written books that teach this racial hate. I found information on this as well too about discrimination! http://www.baytagoodah.com/uploads/9/5/6/0/95600058/jehovahs_witnesses_blacks_and_discrimination.pdf

When I researched the beginnings of this JW religion, I was not finding anything good that related to the scripture I read because the doctrine was changed from what GOD had said. So if they stay in this faith and turn their heart from the truth they will die in a lie told to them by the devil. I can go further on with giving information. But I do ask all who are in this doctrine to reconsider what they are spending their time on reading.
GOD loves you.
Do not turn from the truth. Pray to GOD for the truth. Stay still and listen for him to tell you the words that are true. GOD is not a man that will ever lie to you.
Prayer and research. And then pray even more! The devil is a liar and hates you. GOD LOVES YOU!!!!
