I hate those who witness to the glory and the resurrection of the true Jesus Christ as taught in the Bible and held by orthodox Christians. “Witnessing” leads to conviction, which leads to faith, which leads to salvation, which leads to repentance, which leads to more witnessing. Blechhhh!
Christians witness rarely, but when they do, all hell breaks loose.
I hate that kind of witness.
Don’t I hate Jehovah? And don’t they witness for Jehovah?
Yes, and, well, no. Not really.
I suppose there is a harmless way in which Jehovah’s Witnesses draw attention to God in a way that would normally irk me. But the bottom line is that they are not robbing my kingdom of souls.
And for that, I’m thankful in a strange sort of way.
Do you know why Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t rob my kingdom of souls, my servants?
If you are a student of mine, you should know by now the tell-tale sign of all false religions, cults, philosophies, and the like. I told you most recently in two-part series on Mormonism Part I and Part II.
Do you remember?
Right! Very good! As I’ve said before:
One question matters to God and me: Who do you say that Jesus is?
There is one right answer to that question, and many, many wrong answers.
This issue was addressed by Gabrielle Devenish at the Christian Post today, my friends, in an article entitled, “Cults in Culture: Jehovah’s Witnesses and End Times“. And to my dismay, she got it right. (I prefer that right notions of Christ and Christianity be confined to THIS blog, so that I can control who reads it, and the actions taken).
Ms. Devenish quotes many of my enemies to make her point that, like Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses have a different Jesus. For example, she quotes Charlie Campbell, director of The Always Be Ready Apologetics Ministry, on his apologetics site as listing three areas where Jehovah’s Witnesses deny Christian teachings: hell, the doctrine of the Trinity and the deity of Jesus Christ.
Ha ha ha ha ha.
Now that does have an impact on my kingdom, a positive impact – 91% of the people here didn’t believe in Hell, either. Now Hell is 100% full of Hell-believing theists!
But the real giveaway as to the Jehovah’s Witnesses lack of any negative impact on my kingdom is in their denial of the Trinity and the deity of Christ, which are interconnected necessary doctrines of orthodox Christianity (the only kind there is, actually).
Ms. Devenish supports the Christian view with quotes Christian leader after Christian leader, including Ric Walston of Columbia Theological Seminary, who considers the Watchtower Society (another name for Jehovah’s Witnesses) a cult.
But what really worries me is Walston’s true views on JW’s. Read this and weep for me:
The first thing I think that Christians should keep in mind when approaching a JW – or anyone outside of the Christian faith – is that Jesus died to save sinners, and these folks need Jesus as much as anyone. Our goal should be to reach members of the cults with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Evangelism, not conquest, should be our aim’
Now do you see why I hate true Christian witnesses?
Somebody get me an aspirin.
