JW doctrine teaches that Jesus was not God.I do not know if is doctrime , but I also get the idea that JWs believe the Bible to be completely and literally correct.
Luke 18:19 : Jesus asks a ruler "Why do you call me good? Nobody is good , except one , God".
How , then , do JWs explain John 20:28 , where Thomas says "My Lord and MY GOD!"
If Jesus was NOT God , He would certainly rebuke a disciple for blasphemy.So , why did He not set Thomas straight ? Possibly He did not hear him?
Either Jesus WAS God , and in Luke 18:19 , He was not denying this , but rather merely trying to ascertain if the man believed He was God.Then we have the problem of squaring this with the "lemi , lemi sabaccthani" quote.
Or , John's account is wrong.This means JWs must concede that the Bible is NOT fully correct.
I would sincerely welcome the thoughts of current JWs on this.
