in this video I want to share with you

seven false beliefs that are being

promoted by the Jehovah's Witnesses in

hopes that it will make you more

prepared to defend what you believe as a

Christian the next time a jehovah's

witness comes knocking at your door

that's coming up today on the beat him a

friend welcome back to the beat my name

is Alan Parr thank you so much for

consider subscribing hit that little

Bell notification so you won't miss a

beat okay so most of us have had this

experience at some point in our lives

you're sitting at home you're not doing

anything and all of a sudden you hear

someone knocking on your door and you're

like okay so you get up you go to the

door and it is a Jehovah's Witness

standing there and they start sharing

what they believe they may even give you

a tract or something to the watchtower

society and if you're not careful after

that conversation you're just kind of

confused because what they're saying

comes from the Bible and sounds like

it's making sense and now you're more

confused about your faith than you were

before you open the door so here are

seven false beliefs that you need to be

ready for the next time a jehovah's

witness comes knocking at your door and

hopefully the next time that happens you

will be more prepared false belief

number one is this idea that god only

has one name hence the name jehovah's

witnesses but we can understand from

Scripture that this is not a proper

belief because the Bible uses many words

or names to describe God one of which is

Elohim or El Shaddai

another is Lord or in the Hebrew Adonai

sometimes he's referred to as father or

our Father and the Lord's Prayer or

creator and what not and so this idea

that God has to be referenced by one

name Jehovah and one name only is just

simply not supported in Scripture now

the second false belief that Jehovah's

Witnesses subscribed to is this idea

that the Trinity is not biblical because

the word Trinity does not show up in the

Bible now

in order to save time in this particular

video I'm not going to go into the

entire teaching on the Trinity because I

have an entire other video that's about

10 minutes long that goes into all sorts

of depth uses a lot more scriptures than

we have time for in this video so if

you're not quite sure how to explain the

Trinity I want to encourage you to go

look at that video I'm going to put a

link in the description put a card

somewhere up on the screen but here is

the idea number one the concept of the

Trinity is based on three truths first

of all there is only one God truth

number two God exists as three persons

eternally truth number three each person

is God now I know that's very hard for

us to understand and comprehend that's

why I have a whole other video check

that out because you want to be prepared

the next time a jehovah's witness

suggests that this idea of the trinity

is not biblical okay the third false

belief that Jehovah's Witnesses teach is

this idea that Jesus Christ was a

created Archangel Michael before the

world began but once again this is not

consistent with what the scriptures say

because colossians chapter 1 verse 16

leads us to the conclusion that jesus

created everything so if jesus was the

creator then how could he also be

something or someone who was created

notice what it says here for by him

that's Jesus all things were created in

heaven and on earth the here it is

visible and invisible whether Thrones or

dominions or rulers or authorities all

things were created through him and for

him so if Jesus was the creator of all

of course under the father's domain then

how could he also have been a created

being now along those same lines

Jehovah's Witnesses will also suggest

that Jesus Christ was a mere human being

and was not actually God but the Bible

says in John chapter 1 verse 1 in the

beginning was

word and the Word was with God and the

Word was God

let me repeat that in the beginning was

the word and the Word was with God and

the Word was God

now also in Colossians chapter 2 verse 9

it says for in him in Jesus the whole

fullness of deity dwells bodily and so

basically Jehovah's Witnesses will say

that you know what Jesus was just a man

or he was something else but he wasn't

fully God but that's not what the

scriptures say scriptures say the entire

sum total of everything that makes up

the Godhead was dwelling in bodily form

in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ but

not only just looking at what the

scriptures say look at what Jesus did no

mere man can raise the dead no mere man

can can us still the storms and calm the

sea and heal the sick and and and give

blind give sight to the blind and all of

these different things and I walk on

water and feed 5,000 with two fish and

five loaves of bread the very acts and

works of Jesus prove that he is indeed

God and not just simply a man okay the

fourth false belief that Jehovah's

Witnesses will teach is this idea that

Jesus resurrection was more of a

spiritual resurrection but not a

physical resurrection that occurred in a

real actual physical body but once again

this is not consistent with what the

scriptures say the matter of fact on

several occasions it says that after

Jesus rose from the dead he was eating

food it says that in Luke chapter 24

verse 30

now you can't eat food unless you have a

physical body but not only that there

were a few occasions where his disciples

and some of the other females reached

out to touch him to actually take hold

of his physical body we see that also in

matthew chapter 28 verse 9 where it says

and behold Jesus met them and said

greetings and they came up and took hold

of his feet and worshiped him if his

resurrection was not a physical

dirrection in a physical body than my

friends then they would not actually

been able to physically touch him but

not only that the Bible says in first

Corinthians 15 that after he rose from

the dead he spent forty days on earth

actually says in Acts chapter 1 giving

convincing proofs now during the forty

days it says that he was seen by over

500 people at one time and so if this

was just more of a spiritual

resurrection then how is it that all 500

of these people saw some sort of ghost

or had a hallucination or something like


once again this claim is not consistent

with the scriptures the fifth false

belief that Jehovah's Witnesses will

promote is this idea that the Holy

Spirit is not God but rather he is an

impersonal force now once again I've got

another teaching that goes into extreme

death I think it's a live stream that I

did it's like an hour and a half long

that talks about the the the Ministry of

the Holy Spirit I'm going to put a link

to that in the description put a card

somewhere on the screen you can watch

that and it'll give you everything that

you ever wanted to know about the Holy

Spirit but in essence the the proof that

we know that the Holy Spirit is indeed

God and not just some force is because

of how the Bible describes the Holy

Spirit it says in Ephesians chapter 4

verse 30 that we can grieve the Holy


how can you grieve a force you can't

grieve a force you can only grieve a

person it says in the book of Acts

chapter 5 that a nice and Sapphira lie

to the Holy Spirit you can't lie to a

force you can only lie to a person it

also says in 1st Corinthians chapter 12

verse 11 that the Holy Spirit

distributes the spiritual gifts as he

wills in other words he makes decisions

so Force's don't make decisions

decisions are made for forces but a

person makes a decision also over and

over again in the scriptures the Holy

Spirit is not referred to as an it so if

you're a Christian you keep referring to

the Holy Spirit as an it

then you need to switch because the Holy

Spirit is a person and we need to refer

to him as he as the Scriptures do ok the

sixth false belief that Jehovah's

we'll teach is that hell is not a place

of eternal suffering but rather it's a

place where people will experience

suffering for a time and then they will

be annihilated or eliminated if you will

now to be fair their hope as witnesses

are not the only group that promote this

seventh-day adventists also promote this

as well although I do believe that they

are Christian but this is a false belief

because once again if you look at Luke

chapter 16 it is very clear here and by

the way that's not a parable that's as a

story because Jesus never used proper

names in parables when you look at the

story of Lazarus and the rich man you'll

see that this rich man who went to hell

was experiencing torments he was burning

up in flames he had the he had his

memory he was able to remember that his

brothers were still on earth and he

wanted them to not experience the same

torment that he was experiencing and so

the Bible also describes Hell as a place

where the worm does not die or that fire

cannot be quenched and so if a little

worm which is the smallest insect that

we have doesn't die and my friend you

and I aren't going to die up eventually

to be burnt up eventually and simply

cease to exist now the seventh false

belief that Jehovah's Witnesses will

teach is this idea that only a hundred

and forty-four thousand anointed

believers are going to go to heaven

now to be clear on this position what

they believe is that basically there's

two groups of redeemed Souls there are a

hundred and forty-four thousand anointed

Souls and these will be the special

group of people that are one-day going

to ascend into heaven and reign and rule

with Christ but then the rest of the

sheep or the rest of the believers will

simply have to exist in a earth or a

paradise but they won't be able to

ascend to be able to go to heaven now

this is wrong on many different levels

number one because the Bible says that

in terms of reigning and ruling with

Christ is not going to happen in heaven

it's going to happen on earth whenever

God creates a new heaven and a new earth

and Jesus is going to reign

rule with his believers for a thousand

years during the millennial reign which

is described in Revelation chapter 20

but that's not happening in heaven

that's actually happening in earth the

second reason which I talked about this

before is that the hundred forty-four

thousand people in the book of

Revelation I believe are twelve thousand

Hebrew believers that are living during

the time of the tribulation that God is

going to protect and seal and enable

them to share their faith with other

people so that more people can come to

Christ not only this nowhere in the

bible does the Bible make some

distinction between their being a

special group of believers that are

going to go to heaven and then the rest

of us are going to just have to be here

on earth no the Bible says that the

believers the body of Christ the church

is going to be married or United to

Jesus Christ throughout all time and

every single believer is going to have

equal access in terms of their

relationship and status with Jesus

Christ so my friend these seven false

beliefs that I talked about in this

video are by no means the only

differences between jehovah's witness

beliefs and christianity these are just

a few to get you started i may come back

around some time later and do a second

follow-up video but many of you been

asking about jehovah's witnesses and

what they believe in how we can better

prepare ourselves to share our faith

with them hopefully the scriptures that

i provided in this video as well as the

links to some of my other videos will be

enough to equip you to be able to share

your faith the next time a jehovah's

witness comes knocking on your door if

you found this video helpful and anyway

feel free to share it with a friend also

if you haven't done so already I would

love it if you would subscribe check out

some of the other videos on this channel

thank you so much for watching I'll see

you next time on the beat
