Jehovah our God is One Jehovah

We have seen that the Watchtower Society God, in the Jehovah Witness mind, sits on a throne ‘in heaven’ issuing his edicts via his spirit broadcasting system. Jesus, sitting at the right hand of the majesty on high (Heb.1:3), is able to ‘inspect the earth’ by means of this same spirit. For a Jehovah’s Witness, God is channelled through a…read more →

When Jehovah’s Witnesses Worshipped Jesus

Jehovah’s Witnesses worshipped Jesus until 1954, after which they were told such worship was idolatrous. This made them a polytheistic religion for most of their history.

In a recent online Dialogue with a Jehovah’s Witness it reminded me just how convinced they are that Jesus is not God and is not alone sufficient for their salvation.
