WHICH GOD DO WE WORSHIP?
Jehovah's witnesses worship Jehovah as God!
My reply: No the Jehovah's Witnesses worship and kowtow to the Governing body. That is who they worship.
trinitarians worship Jesus as God!
My reply: True
trinitarians will argue this point but when you have invented a whole unbiblical doctrine to allow you to worship the son instead of the Father and put a cross representing the son on all your altars I will stand by what I say.
My reply: We worship the Son as we worship the Father. And the corss does not represent Jesus. It is simply a reminder of what he did for us. This has been explained to you before.
How important is it that we worship the true God?
Do not worship any other god, for Jehovah, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God.
My reply: Agrred, and I do.
Matthew 4:8-10 (New International Version)
8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me."
10 Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship YHWH your God, and serve him only.' [ a ] "
My reply: Jesus did not deny worship for himself- he denied it to the devil.
John 4:23 (New International Version)
23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
My reply: Of course he later brings out how all are to honor him exactly as the Father....or Revelation 5 shows the entire heavenly host worshipping the Father and the Son together.
Jesus owns words show us how the true worshipers will be recognised?
Does he say will they worship Jesus the son? NO! they will worship the Father does he even say 'AND the son'? NO! Does he say God so trinitarians could say it included both? NO!
How important is worshiping the true God? the bible made it a commandment and Jesus also gave his backing to that commandment.
You and chalam think armageddon is a just a gentle change-over of governments have you read revelation 16?
Revelation 16:1 (New International Version)
Revelation 16 1 Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, "Go, pour out the seven bowls of God's wrath on the earth."
Revelation 16:16-21 (New International Version)
16 Then they gathered the kings together to the place that in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
17 The seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and out of the temple came a loud voice from the throne, saying, "It is done!" 18 Then there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder and a severe earthquake. No earthquake like it has ever occurred since man has been on earth, so tremendous was the quake. 19 The great city split into three parts, and the cities of the nations collapsed. God remembered Babylon the Great and gave her the cup filled with the wine of the fury of his wrath. 20 Every island fled away and the mountains could not be found. 21 From the sky huge hailstones of about a hundred pounds each fell upon men. And they cursed God on account of the plague of hail, because the plague was so terrible.
this doesn not paint an easy picture it's heavily symbolic language but the dire warning of it shows it will be terrible for man who will 'curse god' because of it's terribleness.
but if you want more comfirmation how about Jesus's own words....
Luke 17:26-37 (New International Version)
26 "Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28 "It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
30 "It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. 31 On that day no one who is on the roof of his house, with his goods inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. 32 Remember Lot's wife! 33 Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. 34 I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. 35 Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left." [ a ]
37 "Where, Lord?" they asked.
He replied, "Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather.
Is Jesus painting a pretty picture here? OR is he showing it will be a flood type event?
The Jehovah's witnesses did not put these scriptures in the bible but we paid heed to the warning and do not take the warning lightly? Do you?
My reply: Yes, we take heed and stay awake. But we do not utter false prophecies from these verses, as the Wt has notoriously and repeatedly done.
