Lies Jehovah Witnesses Believe:       Truth to Say:

Deception:  The proper use of God’s correct name, which is Jehovah, is essential to salvation.

Truth to Say:  Forgiveness of sins is found in the name of Jesus (John 1:12).  Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life and there is no way to the Father, but through Him (John 14:6; Acts 4:10-12).

Deception:  Salvation depends on works. Grace is the opportunity for people to earn their salvation by total obedience to the Watchtower Society. Grace is not a free gift of salvation.

Truth to Say:  Salvation is by faith through grace in the Lord Jesus Christ with no works involved.  (Ephesians 2:8-9)  Grace means:  God’s unmerited favor.  God freely gives us salvation as a gift and it is received by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus, not Jehovah, for salvation (Romans 10:3). Once you are saved, God does want you to do good works to help people in need.

 Deception:  Only 144,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses go to heaven aka the “Anointed Class”: the ones who are born-again.

 Truth to Say:  Jesus Christ never restricted His Kingdom to 144,000 people. He taught that ALL people should seek the Kingdom of God and whoever believed in Him would become born-again. 1 John 5:1

 Deception:  The Trinity is not real.  The Father, Jesus Christ & the Holy Ghost are all separate.  The Trinity was adopted by the church 300 years after Jesus Christ died.

 Truth to Say:  There are not “three Gods in one God.” There are three manifestations or three persons in one God.  It is like: water, ice and steam.  The Trinity has been affirmed by the church ever since Christ died.  See: Matt. 28:19 and 2 Corin. 13:14.  when a person prays to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit comes into their heart, connecting them to God.

 Deception:  Jesus Christ was the “firstborn of all creation” and was created billions of years ago. He is not deity.  Christ was created as the Archangel Michael.

 Truth to Say:  Jesus Christ was not created, but He is the Creator (Col. 1:16). Firstborn means “preeminent” over all creation.  Jesus is equal with the Father in His deity (John 10:30). Christ created Michael. No angel can be God’s Son & rule the world - Heb.1: 5; Rev. 19:16.  The Archangel Michael and all the angels serve and worship God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, who are three in One.

 Deception:  Jesus is a lesser God than the Father, for He is God’s “only begotten son.”  Jesus said, “The Father is greater than I.”

 Truth to Say:  Jesus is equal with the Father in His divine nature.  Jesus was positionally lower than the Father when He took on human likeness for 33 years while He was on earth (Phil. 2:6-11).

 Deception:  The Holy Spirit is not God, but an active impersonal  force to do God’s will in the world.

 Truth to Say:  The Holy Spirit is a person with a mind, will, & emotions Who prays and speaks to people (John 15:26). He is fully God ‘cause He is all knowing, all-powerful & always present.  See: 1 Cor. 2:10; Eph.4:30; Psalm 139:7; Acts 5:3-4; Rom. 15:19

 Deception:  Birthdays are evil because in Gen. 40:20 & Matt. 14:6-10 two people died at a birthday party.

 Truth to Say:  Birthdays should be celebrated. These verses simply prove that the rulers Pharaoh and Herod were evil who commanded the chief baker and John the Baptist to be killed on their birthday.

 Deception:  Man does not have a soul that can survive death.  Hell is not an eternal place of suffering, but just a grave.

 Truth to Say:  It’s a lie. When a Christian dies their soul goes to heaven (Phil. 1:21-23). When an unbeliever dies their soul goes to hell, a place of great suffering for all eternity.  See Luke 16:19; Matt.25:46.



Would you like to Receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Have Eternal Life in Heaven?  Then Pray this Salvation Prayer:  

“Heavenly Father, I believe You love me and that Your Son Jesus Christ died for me on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead.  Jesus, I repent for all of my sins. I repent for all the wrong things I have done.  I repent for believing those lies and now I believe the truth.  Now I ask You, Jesus,  to come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. I want to live for You.  Holy Spirit, come fill me with Your power.  Thank You for loving and forgiving me, for saving me from hell, and giving me eternal life in heaven.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
