Why do Jehovah Witnesses have an unbiblical view of Jesus ?
Why do Jehovah Witnesses Teach such an unbibical view of Jesus ?
Why does the watchtower teach such such an unbibical view of Jesus ?
Jesus is the second person in the Trinity
Mark 12:29 NKJ
Jesus answered him, "The first of all the commandments is: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one.
1. Michael is NOT the Lord. The Lord is our God
2. Jesus is Lord in Luke 2:11
Luke 2:11 NKJ
For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
3. The Father Called The Son God in Hebrews 1:8
Hebrews 1:8 NKJ
But to the Son He says: "Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your Kingdom.
4. The Father said for all the angels to worship the Son in Hebrews 1:6.
This would also include the Archangel Michael to worship Jesus.
Hebrews 1:6 NKJ
But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: "Let all the angels of God worship Him."
5. The Jehovah Witnesses
Misinterpret firstborn in Hebrews 1:6 and Colossians 1:15
Firstborn in Hebrews 1:6 and Colossains 1:15 is a title of highest Rank
Firstborn can mean firstborn in a family
and it could also mean a title of highest rank
David was the Last one born in his family in 1 Chronicles 2:13-15
God Gave David the highest Rank Firstborn in Psalm 89:20,27
David Last one Born
1 Chronicles 2:13-15 NKJ
Jesse begot Eliab his firstborn, Abinadab the second, Shimea the third, 14 Nethanel the fourth, Raddai the fifth, 15 Ozem the sixth, and David the seventh.
God gave David Highest Rank Firstborn
20 I have found My servant David; With My holy oil I have anointed him,
27 Also I will make him My firstborn, The highest of the kings of the earth.
6. Jesus Created All Things. Therefore Jesus is NOT a creation.
Colossians 1:16 NKJ
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.
7. The Disciples Worshiped Jesus and Jesus accepted the worship.
Jesus NEVER rebuked them for doing so.
Matthew 28:9 NKJ
And as they went to tell His disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, "Rejoice!" So they came and held Him by the feet and worshiped Him.
8. The leper also worshiped Jesus and Jesus accepted worship
Jesus NEVER Rebuked the leper for doing so.
Matthew 8:2 NKJ
And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, "Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean."
9. An Angel Refuses to be Worshiped and says Worship God.
Its very clear Jesus is NOT an angel
Revelation 22:8-9 NKJ
Now I, John, saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things. 9 Then he said to me, "See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God."
10. Jesus Rebukes Satan and Michael Cannot.
Its very Clear Jesus is NOT Michael.
Michael CANNOT rebuke Satan and called out to the Lord
hmmm its very clear Michael is NOT the Lord
Jude 1:9 NKJ
Yet Michael the archangel, in contending with the devil, when he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a reviling accusation, but said, "The Lord rebuke you!"
Jesus Rebukes Satan in Matthew 4:10 and Matthew 16:23
Matthew 4:10 NKJ
Then Jesus said to him, "Away with you, Satan! For it is written, 'You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.' "
Matthew 16:23 NKJ
But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men."
11. Jesus Forgives Sins and Only God alone can forgive sins.
Another reason why Jesus is NOT Michael.
Luke 5:19-21 NKJ
And when they could not find how they might bring him in, because of the crowd, they went up on the housetop and let him down with his bed through the tiling into the midst before Jesus. 20 When He saw their faith, He said to him, "Man, your sins are forgiven you." 21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, "Who is this who speaks blasphemies? Who can forgive sins but God alone?"
12. The Jehovah Witnesses misinterpret 1 Thessalonians 4:16.
1 Thessalonians 4:16 means the Lord is coming down with the Archangel.
The Lord our God the Lord is One Mark 12:29
The Lord is Jesus according to Luke 2:11
Therefore Jesus is Our Lord God and Savior
Michael is NOT the Lord.
Jesus the Word was God
John 1:1 NKJ
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
In Conclusion its Very Clear Jesus is NOT Michael
Its Very Clear Jesus is God
Jesus is Lord
They changed the bible text to suit its own theological bias in many places.
Its not a translation but rather a perversion of scripture.
