The cardinal fact of the saving gospel and the infallible integrity of the revelation of God is the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. If he did not arise from the dead, we have no salvation. The Holy Spirit by the apostle Paul revealed that God promised Christ before by the prophets in “the holy scriptures” which concerned “his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; and declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead” (Romans 1:3-4). The resurrection of Christ DECLARED him to be the Son of God with power. The religious system called “Jehovah’s Witnesses” that was started by Charles Taze Russell will destroy millions in hell.
Generally, people do not know how to respond to religious views with which they are wholly uninformed. This is an effort to give basic information of the Jehovah ‘s Witnesses religion from their own writings. We have no intention of misrepresenting this religious body, hence, we are giving their positions on their religion in their own words.
The roots of this religion are in Adventism, Mormonism, Universalism, Unitarianism and Materialism. Individuals who started other religious bodies, and who had an influence upon Charles Taze Russell were Joseph Smith, Ellen G. White and Mary Baker Eddy. All these claimed “revelations” from God, and put these revelations (?) in the form of their Creeds to which their followers were obligated. They have very little respect for the Bible.
Following in two parts is a brief examination of that system.
