  • Both the Old and New Testament are Jehovah’s inspired words; the primary source of all Truth.
  • Man did not evolve but was created
  • Jehovah created his only-begotten Son, Jesus.  Jesus created all other things.
  • Jesus descended from heaven to earth and was born of Mary as a perfect human man, not as God in flesh.
  • God raised Jesus from death in a Spirit body, not in a physical body of flesh.
  • The Holy Spirit is Jehovah’s active power and force, not a person.
  • The Trinity is no where found or taught in the Bible.
  • Man is mortal and does not possess an immortal soul.  The soul ceases to exist after death.

  • Ultimately, the wicked will be eternally destroyed, but not first without a full opportunity to follow Christ.

    Hi, everyone!
    I can’t say I agree with all the above list. I’m a skeptical believer. I don’t take everything people or an oganization say is the truth! So many things have been proposed as truth. Than someone comes along and proves it not truth. It is all a matter of belief. We look to something to believe in, and along comes something that makes sense to us, so we begin to believe that!

    I grew up as Trinitarian and was quite happy in that religion as I was growing up. And than driffed away to a worldly way of life. Years later I went back and enjoyed that fellowship. Than I came across a different religion that made me question the faith I had. That began a path of belief and disbelief. Due to so many ambiguousness and contradictions texts in the scriptures.

    While I respect everyones faith, Today,I no longer believe any “one” organization has the monolopy on what is classed as Bibical truth. I lisen to what other say, and consider the value of what they say, and if it is reasonable and in harmony with truth than I accept that.

    Maybe I have the wrong approach but I have to be satisfied in myself that what I believe is the truth, and that it is not just based on assumption or conjecture. Most religions are, giving birth to the many thousands of different religious organizations all from one Book.

    Christian Love to all!

    I agree. The Bible Students are not an organization, but a fellowship of like minded Brothers and Sisters. Our study of the Bible causes us to have certain shared beliefs, but we are not so dogmatic to condemn others who may disagree with us. We must prove everything from Gods word, not the word of any man or organization. We are told in scripture that each of us must prove for himself what the will of God is. We all stand or fall on that belief. It is not until Satan is abyssed and this earth is finally under the rule of Christ that the earth will finally be filled with the true knowledge of God. Until then each of us must do what we can each day to follow in the footsteps of Christ. God is the judge, not man. Any religion that claims to have the whole truth and complete understanding of Gods will and punishes those who don’t go along with their teachings is wrong. That has been my problem with the JW’s. When a person can be cut off from friends and family simply for disagreeing with doctrine, that organization has become like the Pharisee’s that Christ condemned!

      Ted I agree, because they have to shunn relatives because they left, yet they can be with relatives that are into everything, some very bad. And the witness doesn’t see how this isn’t logical to associate with say a pedophile or rapist relative or in the congregation but not a God fearing relative that left off worshipping and following men.
