    Who sits on the Throne of God?

    The Jehovah's Witnesses claim that only the Father sits upon the Throne of God, however as we study the scriptures further, we can see that the Lord Jesus is the one who sits on the Throne of God.

    Here we go again.

    This is the point you ignore every time you post one of these videos.

    The bible does NOT present a consistent Christology.

    I can use the bible selectively to prove Jesus is god. I can use the bible to prove Jesus is not equal to the Father. It all depends on what texts you select, which ones you leave out and how much attention you pay to the context.

    Your foundational error is to pretend the bible is a a coherent book as opposed to a collection of books that each reflect the beliefs and biases of their authors.

    The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society/Governing Body does per them and they certainly act like that saying their members cannot approach Jesus and God except through them.

    @Blondie correct, they teach you cannot come to Jesus Christ, and only go direct to the Father, yet the Bible says that we can only approach the Father by coming to the Lord Jesus Christ (John 14:6).

    And yet again you totally ignore every challenge to your dogma.

    You live in a bubble no different from the Watchtower.

    I don't ignore every challenge, I have challenged you before, but you just respond and say the Bible is false.. so why bother? I just prefer not to answer fools :)

    Proverbs 26:4
    "Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him."

    So your reply to a substantial challenge to your worldview is to dismiss the one asking the question as a fool. Do you think adding an emoji makes your arrogance any more palatable?

    You live in a bubble. You are totally ignorant of a whole universe of knowledge and proud of it.

    How exactly is your intellectual dishonesty any different from that of the Watchtower that you oppose?

    That wasn't a rhetorical question by the way and clicking 'Dislike' isn't an answer.

    When someone has a preconceived biased theology its easy to selectively cherry pick out bible Scripture to support that biased.

    As far as I understood the JWS doctrines of faith, they claimed that Jesus is the one who took his heavenly throne in 1914 not Jehovah .
