(2 Cor. 11:4). That warning is up-to-date for the Church today. Our doorbell rings, and there stands a Jehovah’s Witness, presenting to us the Watchtower’s version of Jesus Christ.
Their “Jesus” is a secondary god, the Archangel Michael, and, for a brief time, merely a good man. They can quickly flip through their altered bible, “The New World Translation” and read isolated scriptures that seem to support their position. Christians without adequate Bible teaching can be easily deceived, and end up forsaking the Lord they love, for the Watchtower Jesus, and a life of cult bondage. Other Jehovah’s Witnesses have never had the real Jesus of the Bible presented to them, and so continue to be lost.What can we, as Christians do?
We are instructed, “See to it that no one takes you captive through.. empty deception… rather than according to Christ. For in Him all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form”. (Col. 2:8,9). The Jesus Christ of the Bible is truly God, and truly man. This presentation not only exposes the Watchtower misuse of Scriptures regarding Jesus Christ, but gives Christians a firm foundation for their faith in Him, and prepares them to defend the gospel.
Lorri MacGregor has been in full time ministry to the cults since 1979, and her books, DVDs, booklets and teaching tapes are well known for their direct, simple, clear, presentation of the gospel, especially to those in cult groups.
