If only Jehovah's Witnesses can understand the Bible, Why is it that the Churches can understand it better?

Baptist understand the Bible, and they that are saved, can get a word from God.

Why is it that the Jehovah Witnesses cant understand the fact they need, Jesus Christ to get to

Heaven. Only Christians will reign with Christ a thousand Years. The ones that have trusted in Jesus Christ for their

salvation.

Update:

Jesus was not created.

Update 2:

9th grader: You are wrong. You are not the only ones that use the Bible. I attend a Church that reads the Bible. The King James Version.

The New World Translation is a corrupt book. A sectarian paraphrase, a preversion not a version.

Compiled by the Jehovah Witnesses to read the way they want it to read. The New World Translation

is NOT the word of God. Dont make yourselves better than anyone else. The only way a person is

going to get to Heaven is through Jesus Christ. Only through him can you have salvation. Just

because you go door to door and try to make converts, dont mean you are Christians. And just because

you think you serve the only true God, dont make you Christians. The devil believes and trembles. So believing is not enough.

Update 3:

shaniah: Not only 144,000 will go to heaven. Those who have trusted in Jesus Christ for their

salvation, and are saved will go to heaven. You can know you are saved. Read Acts 16:31, John3:18, John 3:16,Romans 6:23,John 5:24. Read these verses out of the King James Version.

Only through Jesus Christ can you have salvation. There are many that have gone before, that are in

heaven. The 144,000 are the Twelve Tribes of the Children of Israel. The 144,000 are not the Jehovah Witnesses.

Update 4:

The Jehovah Witness has compiled their own version of the Bible to suit their own beliefs, therefore

They have changed the wording of the Bible to suit themselves. They have taken away and added to

scripture to suit their own need. Their has been nothing taken away from the word of God. The

New World Translation is a example of the changes of scripture. What is in the Word of God stays

there, no manner who tries to change it. The taken away and adding to scripture goes against the

word of God. What ever man does to change the Bible, the Bible stays the same. Whatever is in the

word of God stays there, no manner who tries to change it.

Update 5:

Levi: You are wrong.

Jesus is to inherit the creation, It has nothing to do with being created.

verse 18 from this chapter of Colossians goes on to directly contradict Jesus

being created describing him as existing in the position and not creation.

The scriptures and Jesus himself, affirmed that he was heir to the creation:

John 1:1 indicated that Jesus was not created, The third verses comes from

Hebrews which states that Jesus is the same yesterday and to day, and forever.

Obviously, if Jesus was created, this verse could not be true. Hebrews 13:8

And we didn't come from Jesus. We came from noah's family.

Update 6:

phooey: The Bible doesn't say that, Jesus was created.

    Most all evangelical churches DO understand the concept of salvation by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ. But when you are a cult, and use 'another bible' instead of God's holy word, then perhaps you get led astray somewhat. Here in the Bible belt south, we have an expression for these cults and splinter groups that try to claim they are the only ones who are right. We say they think they are the only 'punkin on the vine'. Don't let error dissuade you from the truth. Just pray for those in error and every time you have a chance, offer them the truth.

    Do you actually read people's comments closely? 9th Grader said others DO read the Bible but don't use it to teach. Do some homework on the KJV and see how it was changed to fit doctrine like you accuse the NWT of being. The KJV is not the word of God either.

    As for what the Bible teaches, it says Jesus was created, says he had a beginning. Also says faith without works is dead, so being saved is not any guarantee. Yes, spiritual Christians chosen from the earth will reign with Jesus. The rest will be on earth, as taught in the Bible. We don't go door to door to make converts, we preach the good news about Jehovah's Kingdom and what it will do for all mankind. You can find that commission at Matthew 24:14. Since we do follow Jesus, we are Christians.

    Edit: Really? The Bible doesn't say Jesus was created? So in your KJV what does Colossians 1:15 mean?- "Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:" Since he was the firstborn of every creature, meaning he was created before anything else and became Jehovah's master worker.

    If other religions really understand scripture then why aren't they teaching the truth of the Kingdom, directing the flocks to pray for and reach out for the Kingdom at Daniel 2:44? Why do they preach Hell fire when is contradicts a God of Love? Why do they teach things steeped in paganism? Why do they have an American and state flag in their place of Worship? Jesus said his people would be no part of the world just as he was no part of the world.

    Jesus is not God but the son of God. Psalms 83:18

    Man does not choose who goes to heaven and who doesn't. Only God the Almighty does.

    And I saw, and, look! the Lamb standing upon the Mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand having his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads

    Revelation 14:1

    Jesus said that his people would be known for the love they have among them. Your rant against an answer is not loving. Our love also extends to people who do not agree with us, that is another reason we go door to door. The main reason is that Jesus commanded us to at Matthew 24:14 and 28:19,20.

    By this all will know that YOU are my disciples, if YOU have love among yourselves.”

    John 13:35

    You believe there is one God, do you? You are doing quite well. And yet the demons believe and shudder

    James 2:19

    They shudder because they have personal knowledge of the Most High and his Son. They know what is in store for them for being disobedient and unrepentant.

    There is nothing wrong with questioning what you are being taught and research to make sure it is correct. I did and found the truth, as I had been seeking God and did not find him elsewhere.

    He who endures to the end is saved

    Matthew 24:13

    May I encourage you to look these up and do research. Don't be so hasty to hate us and fly off the handle in a rage. Your true self comes thru.

    EDIT To give you home work. John 1:1-3, 14. Proverbs8:22, 23, 30. Colossians 1:15, 16. Luke1:30-35. Philippians 2:5-7 and John 3:16.

    These all give credence to Jesus being created. Jehovah God has no beginning and will have no end. When Jesus died faithful and later ascended to the right hand of his Father he gained Eternal life. Read and meditate on these scriptures as they clearly show Jesus was created and is not God. If you want, pray to Jehovah in the name of Jesus and ask for insight. It can't hurt.

    Only 144,000 are going to heaven, which many don't seem to understand, even when it says it right in there own bible. The churches want to send everybody to heaven, and that's not what the scriptures say. And since when do we not believe in Jesus. We are the only religion that actually obey his command to preach and teach. And the bible says you have to keep proving what you yourselves are. Nobody can say they are automatically saved. We have to keep proving that we are on Gods side by the way we live our lives everyday. 2 Corinthians 13:5. Revelation 14:1, 7:4, Psalm 37:10,11,29. The rest of obedient mankind will be here on the earth in peaceful conditions. As the bible says. Many of the heavenly class have already been chosen. They were chosen back in Jesus's time. If Jehovah wanted everyone in heaven, then what would be the point in the earth? Isaiah 45,18 tells us he created it to be inhabited.

    Well actually Jehovah's Witnesses both understand the Bible and the false teachings of the Bible.

    What Does the Bible Really Teach? http://www.watchtower.org/e/bh/article_01.htm

    Jehovah is God's name and no one has the right to remove it.

    Notice that Jesus is the son and calls Jehovah Father..

    Are people confused about what a son is and what a father is? or do they just try to make it confusing? As Jehovah is our eternal father, as long as we are, then Jesus will continue as his son, meaning he too was created.

    John 1:3 All things came into existence through him, and apart from him not even one thing came into existence.

    So Jesus came into existance as the firstborn of creation, then everything was created through him. No need to make it confusing and make Jehovah 3 in one when he said this...

    Deuteronomy 6:4 “Listen, O Israel: Jehovah our God is one Jehovah.

    Peace

    You might want to have another look at Matthew 6:9-10 and think about what It means. Feel free to contact local Jehovah's Witnesses fr a free home Bible Study

    Source(s): Jehovah's Witness (still to be baptized) after studying science, evilution, history and religion I now know that Jehovah's Witnesses have the truth!

    If you understand the Bible why do you insist on being part of the world that Jesus condemned according to John 17:16 and James 4:4. Why do you partcipate in wars and politics and celebrate pagan celebrations ?

    You have got to be kidding.

    There is a new King James Bible coming out in the near future that has God's name in it 6972 times, go to www.dnkjb.net (finally the King James has been corrected)

    I might point out Jehovah Witnesses had nothing to do with this translation of the King James Bible, it is the same as your KJ except the name has been added.

    Who said that we are the only ones that understand the bible..? We never said that... And actually some people misunderstand the bible..Think of how many people actually study the bible and research it... How many people use the BIBLE to make points..? We aren't the only people that can understand the bible, but we certainly are the only ones that bother to use it to help people to learn bible truths.

    The bibles from now are the corrupt ones made to Justify false worship. The name of the only true god has been replaced with "Lord" to justify Jesus worship hades(place of the dead) has been replaced with hell to fit ur beliefs..I think that you need to do some research...Why don't you look at where the trinity doctrine came from...And also all these other practices and Holiday that people practice these days..They all have pagan origins....MR

    If Jesus was not created, why is he referred to as "the only-begotten son"?

    1 John 4:9 "By this the love of God was made manifest in our case, because God sent forth his only-begotten Son into the world that we might gain life through him"

    Therefore he was created for his was God's first born (creation) among all of his other sons (angels).

    We do realize that Christ' shed blood is the only means to get eternal salvation in Heaven or on Earth.
