The Watchtower Society teaches that Jesus is a creature. They do not believe He is eternal, almighty, or worthy of worship.
Here are some very useful questions about their views.
We are posting a number of e-letters Make Sure Ministries has received from David Henke, founder of Watchman Fellowship, Inc., an apologetics ministry, on a variety of subjects. They will post on Tuesdays into the foreseeable future. As always, we appreciate your comments. Please consider clicking on the link following this blog to learn more about Watchman Fellowship and what they have to offer. E-letters have been slightly edited for clarity.
Why do Jehovah’s Witnesses teach that Jehovah directly created ONLY ONE THING, Michael the Archangel (aka Jesus), and that Michael then created all OTHER things (United in Worship, page 29)?
? Does this not conflict with Daniel 10:13 where Michael is called “one of” the chief princes?
? Does it not conflict with John 1:3 where it says “…without him (Jesus) was not ANYTHING made that was made?” Jehovah’s Witnesses do teach that Jesus (Michael) was “made.”
? Does it not also conflict with Isaiah 44:24 where Jehovah said, “I am the LORD (Jehovah) that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself?”
(Links below are to JW.org.)
??? Has not this teaching caused the Watchtower to tamper with God’s Word at Colossians 1:16, 17 by adding the word “other” four times to their New World Translation so that it says “… by means of him (Jesus) all [other] things were created …?”
? Does John 20:28 say in any Greek/English Interlinear that Jesus is “the God” of Thomas?
In the Greek Thomas says, “Ho kurios mou kai ho theos mou.” “The Lord of me and the God of me.”
