why a cult
Why a cult?
  • A full denial of Jesus' deity.
  • Salvation not purely by grace alone. You must be a part of the WBTS and strive to be good, upstanding, active Jehovah's Witness.

Oops!
  • The New World Translation, a horribly slanted version.
  • Jesus merely the first created being.
  • Anti-Trinity
  • Jesus' resurrection only spiritual, not physical.
  • Jesus was Michael.
  • Requirements of salvation
  • Two classes of saved people
  • A warped eschatology
  • No hell; just non-existence.
our response
Our Response
  • Try to connect through relationships, even though it may be very hard.
  • Focus on the person of Jesus, the divinity of Jesus, and your relationship with Jesus being your sole source of salvation.
  • Tell your story.
  • Know your beliefs (and theirs); know the Bible; and be ready to stand for your faith.
the final word

  • Ephesians 2:8-9
