great witnessing tool,
By A Customer
This review is from: Reasoning from the Scripture with the Jehovah's Witnessess (Paperback)
I believe that any Christian library should contain this book. It is very common for Jehovah's Witnesses to come to the door. This book is a great tool to show them the TRUE Jesus Christ of the Bible. I appreciate the advice that he has in the beginning of his book. This advice stresses to talk WITH the Jehovah's Witness and NOT at them. It is also stressed that you should get to know them as people. With those attitudes and the information contained in this book, you should be able to have a fruitful witness opportunity. If they are sincerely honest about knowing God, the material contained in this volume will help you with providing information on the TRUE Jesus Christ of the Bible. The majority of the book shows the Watchtower doctrine and the Scriptures that they use to support them. Mr. Rhodes then goes through the texts that they use. He supplies not only the word(s) in the original language with documented defintions, he also supplies supporting text. This is done on the principal that Scripture should interpret Scripture. I would recommend that this book be in your library and the information on the tip of your tongue. This will help to supply a ready defense for the faith.

Paul Gos says:
The True Jesus Christ was a preacher who went from door to door and Jehovahs Witnesses follow the Christ in fulfillment of Matt 28:19,20.Shame all the critics who clutch these little books waiting for a witness to call aren't using their time more wisely preaching the bible message.Maybe Mr.Rhodes should read Acts 20:20. Which other religion spends over a billion man hours each year in the work Christ said would identify his followers?

i thought you denied the trinity, but give a verse that supports it
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
another proof that jw's don't know the scriptures, this person give an argument that supports something he doesn't believe
i don't need these little books, i love to speak with jw's/russelites, to show them the gospel, i don't want them thrown into outer darkness,
i agree with what the diciple thomas said my Lord and my God , JESUS IS BLATENTLY CALLED GOD!
if there is any jw with the courage out there to answer, please do i have a lot of other questions to ask.
if i am proven wrong i will humbley admit defeat, but we must know who the real jesus is

First of all, when you mention the command to baptize in the name of the father, son and holy spirit, you fail to explain why that proves the trinity (a word which does not appear in the bible). I think I know your reasoning but I'd very much like to hear your explanation so that I can respond appropriately.
Secondly, on the basis of 1 Corinthians 8:5, 6 Jehovah's Witnesses have no objection to Jesus being referred to as a god. I will quote the KJV of that verse, "For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in the earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him." Even the devil is referred to as a god in 2 Corinthians 4:4. 1 Corinthians 8 makes clear that only the Father is God. Jesus is our Lord and as for the Holy Ghost... no mention there at all.
John 20:17 "Jesus saith unto her, 'Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.'" It appears that Jesus refers to the Father as being his God in the same way that the Father is Mary's God. The Father never once refers to Jesus as His God throughout the entirety of the scriptures. In fact, the phase 'God the Son' does not appear at all in The Holy Scriptures. Why is the Father singled out as being Jesus' God? where is the holy spirit in this? Why is the holy spirit not also Jesus' God?
1 Corinthians 15:24 "Then cometh the end, when he [Jesus] shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father..." Verse 28 "And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all." Jesus is distinct from God and in subjection. These are just a small selection of some of the texts I could use. Please respond. If I am wrong then you obligated before God to show me my error. I will only accept scriptural proofs. Awaiting your response.

You forget that the majority of the 8million baptised JWs chose to join, werent born in, werent, coerced, didnt stay because its a comfortable, pick and mix, anything goes belief. The mainstream had embraced paganism and thats why those churches are included in the Great Babylon of false religions spoken of in the bible. Now, the Thomas scripture. The Bible tells us there are many gods, satan is called a god, moses is called a god and so are the judges of israel. The word used means a superior person. So, Thomas is right that Jesus is a superior being :) But Jesus himself refuted the jews'drummed up charge of blasphemy that he had claimed to be God almighty - saying to them that 'the judges were not destroyed but they were gods and yet all I said was I am the SON of God. ' We JWs make our religion our life 24/7 - NO way could you ask a real JW a question that they couldnt answer you using the Bible scriptures. Try us.
