Saw this Jehovah's Witness flyer at my door today and I heard that the Mormon followers are also busy proclaiming their version of Jesus. I wish I was home to ask them why they want to get involved with our upcoming Easter celebration or at the least why they want to hijack our Holy Week devotions!
First of all Jehovah's Witness and the Mormons do not believe that Jesus is God and they also do not believe in the Trinity. As christians, Jesus is our God and Easter is about His glorious resurrection.
If followers of Jehovah's and the Mormons come to your door to tell you that they also "believe" in Jesus, they just want to get you to jump over to join their cult.
Only two things you should tell them:
1. Their Bible is not the same as the Christian Bible regardless of what these cultists say. The Jehovah's bible is the New World Translation version. It is not an acceptable translation in Christian theology. Regardless, they will insist that we are using the same bible.
2. As Christians, Jesus IS God and our awesome God! After all we are called Christians because we believe in our heart that Jesus Christ is God, our Lord and Saviour. The Jehovah's Witness and the Mormons will never accept that. In John 1 of our Christian bible it says, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.... and the Word became flesh and dwelt amongst us. (i.e. the Word is Jesus and he is God!) In the Jehovah's bible, they changed the last part to: "and the word was a god"(small letters on "word" and "god", meaning that Jesus is not the same as God. In the Greek bible manuscripts these words are in capital letters specially the word "Theos" referring to God) Big difference. Also Jesus said, "I am the way the truth and the life, nobody comes to the father except through me.... My father and I are one. Of course with the Mormons, their theology about their Jesus is also that he definitely is not God. In fact they believe that Jesus IS A BROTHER OF LUCIFER (SATAN) and later on married to Mary Magdalene! Go figure.
Remember, the Jesus of the Jehovah's Witness and the Mormons is not GOD and never the same as our own loving Jesus.
BEWARE and defend and be very proud of your Christian faith.
