Most of us have been approached by Jehovah’s Witnesses who try to convince us that Jesus is not God, among other things. Here are just some of the verses that prove otherwise.

It’s interesting that I have yet to meet a JW who discovered these ideas through their own study. They are taught doctrines of demons through The Watchtower magazine — direct from corporate headquarters.

Just like with once-saved-always-saved, the false doctrine of eternal security, Francis Chan’s words again prove true: Francis Chan: Are Your Beliefs Biblical? What would you believe if you had only read the Bible on your own?

People aren’t getting these ideas from their own studies. They’re passing around doctrines of demons, sending many to Hell — which the Jehovah’s Witnesses also don’t believe in.

…lies from Satan. Satan doesn’t want Jesus to be worshiped or obeyed.

[EXCELLENT video] Francis Chan and Preston Sprinkle: Erasing Hell — “He gets to define what love is, and not us.” “That means my sin is way worse than I could ever even imagine.” | ~”I think this whole concept of ‘how could God do this’ is woven into the fabric of our culture that says ‘how dare my dad tell me what I can and cannot do!’ We’ve lost the idea of authority, and it’s killing our culture.”

[Q&A] Francis Chan on Rob Bell and Hell: Why ‘ERASING HELL’ was Francis’ most difficult book and how it prompted him to repent for softening Jesus’ warnings — “WE IN AMERICA READ CERTAIN PASSAGES OVER AND OVER TO THE NEGLECT OF OTHERS, we start to believe that Jesus had a friendly tone all the time. … We have tried to block Hell out of our minds. Yet because it’s written about so often in Scripture, I think God does want it on the forefront.”

WHY HELL is INTEGRAL to THE GOSPEL — God declares himself to be compassionate and loving, but he also says, “Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished.” The Psalms declare that “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.” — Why is it that when people think about hell they conclude God must be at fault and not themselves?

[10-minute video] Francis Chan: Erasing Hell — “Do you ever even consider the possibility that maybe the Creator’s sense of justice is actually more developed than yours? And that maybe His love and His mercy are perfect, and that you could be the one that is flawed. … We can’t afford to be wrong on this issue.”
