Youtube summary of why the WT/JW are not Christians A practical statement. I deny the Watchtower's tax exempt shelter of the Jehovah Witness are Christian at all. It is for prophet entity. They are more Jewish than Christian. The entire New Testament is devoted to the Trinity - by design by a counsel. Your Arius was kicked out unilaterally. He was banished and his works to be burned - Charles Russell plagiarized his works.
Jehovah isn't even a real word. In what language to you go from YHWH to Jehovah? If you read about the etymology of the word - it mean god AND prankster or deceitful one.
JW.org - "It is spelled יהוה (YHWH) in Hebrew letters. In English, the common rendering of that name is “Jehovah.”" NO IT IS NOT. Is the entire religion built upon a little isolated WT slang? Cough, cough, bullshit.
It was a grossly mistaken translation by a south american monk that he later recanted and apologized for. Russell picked up fragments of Arius, banished from Christianity, and a known mistranslated name of YHWH. Frankly YHWH cannot be translated - the best they can do is to spell it phonetically so it can be pronounced. Yahwey. Where does Jehovah come from?
Let's not forget the very specific declarations that the world would end on a certain day/year 12 times. Guess what? Still here. If you believe in the Bible, which they claim to, it is very specific, many times, about false prophets that claim to speak for God. "If what they claim to speak for God, and those things do not happen, they must die" Revelations tells us false prophets will be cast into the lake of fire. The Watchtower has built a business on "false prophets" for profit. All the Watchtower people and their tax shelter the Jehovah Witness followers will be cast into the lake of fire.
They real dichotomy is why Watchtower cherry picks versus from a Bible they preach is very wrong. And rails against the the very Catholics that assembled the book in very specific ways that you hold in your hands. The
All Churches are not the same. Religion my be speculative and up to the individual. In my area Churches are tax exempt, but they also contribute a lot to the community. They do fund missionarys to foreign lands, but they also have building project in the community. With a few neighboring Churches they have a rotating homeless shelter and food for the homeless. No matter who they are. Does the Watchtower contribute anything to the resources they suck up?
And, yes. I was ordained by a real Christian Church. Not my focus, but a part of me.
