Are You Really Jehovah’s Witness?
By Manuel Seymour

    According to your “New World Translation” you translate John 1:1 as follows:  “In [the] beginning the Word was, and the Word was with God, and the Word was a god.”
    The original Greek literally states: “In beginning was the Word, and the Word was with the God, and God was the Word.
    Now, should we trust your translation or the original language from which it comes?
    You readily admit that the “Word” is in reference to the Lord Jesus Christ; however, you make Jesus a god and not God as the Holy Scripture teaches.
    Are we to believe you or the Holy Scripture?

    You say Jesus is “a god.”  Well, what does Jehovah say?  Is Jesus a god?
    According to your own “New World Translation” we will find if you are truly Jehovah’s witness.
    1. – Isaiah 43:10,11 – “You are my witnesses, is the utterance of Jehovah, even my servants whom I have chosen, in order that you may know and have faith in me, and that you may understand that I am the same One.  Before me there was no God formed, and after me there continued to be none.  I – I am Jehovah, and besides me there is no savior.
    If Jesus is “a god,” when was he formed?

    2. – Isaiah 44:6 – “This is what Jehovah has said, the King of Israel and the Repurchaser of him, Jehovah of armies, I am the first and I am the last, and besides me there is no God.
    How can Jesus be “a god” when Jehovah says “besides me there is no God”?
    Who is telling the truth Jehovah or you?

    Jehovah said that He was the first and the last, and Jesus said in Revelations. 1:17, “Do not be fearful.  I am the First and the Last,”  If God is not the Word then either Jehovah or Jesus is lying.  Or, is it that you are lying?

    3. – Isaiah 44:8 – “And you are my witnesses.  Does there exist a God besides me?  No, there is no Rock.  I have recognized not.
    If Jehovah does not recognize any other, His witnesses do not recognize any other.  According to your own translation, you are not Jehovah’s witnesses!

    4. – Isaiah 45:21 – “Is it not I, Jehovah, besides whom there is no other God: a righteous God and a Savior, there being not excepting me?
    If Jehovah states, “there is no other God,” how could any true witness of Jehovah contradict Him?

    5. – Isaiah 46:9 – “Remember the first things of a long time ago, that I am the Divine One and there is no other God, nor anyone like me;
    Now, you claim to be a witness sent from Jehovah, but your own teachings contradict what Jehovah has declared over and over.  By your own evidence you reveal yourself not to be a witness of Jehovah, but a liar and a deceiver!

    Now, who does Jehovah declare Jesus to be?
    Isaiah 9:6 – “For there has been a child born to us, there has been a son given to us; and the princely rule will come to be upon his shoulder.  And his name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.”
    Jehovah declares Jesus to be the “Mighty God, Eternal Father.”  This is in agreement with the original Greek of John 1:1 – “and God was the Word.”
    If you were Jehovah’s witness then you would be in agreement with Jehovah giving witness to His divine words.  Since you are not in agreement with Jehovah, you definitely are not Jehovah’s witness.  You are of your father the Devil who has been a liar and a deceiver from the beginning!
    How dare you blaspheme the Holy Name of JEHOVAH with your lies?
    YOU ARE NOT JEHOVAH’S WITNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
