I had two lovely Jehovah’s Witnesses call on me today. I declined their offer to attend their upcoming convention stating that I am a Christian. The conversation went like this:
JW: We are Christians too.
Me: That’s great! But who do YOU say Jesus is?
JW: Jesus is the son of God. But not God.
Me: But the Bible says Jesus IS God. John 1:1 says the word was with God and the word WAS God.
JW: Well, Jesus is a god … but He isn’t God. There are lots of “gods” - but there is only one TRUE God, and that’s Jehovah.
Me: So you believe Jesus was a false god?
JW: No, he was “a god.” Like I said, there are lots of gods. Satan is a “god.”
Me: So you believe Jesus was like Satan?
JW: No, Jesus is like God. But he isn’t the true God. He is “a god.”
Me: So you worship two Gods?
JW: Oh, we don’t worship Jesus. He isn’t God.
Me: But the Bible says there is only one true God. And you said that Jesus is God. So He is either the TRUE God or he’s a FALSE god. Which is it?
JW: He isn’t God.
Me: What about John 1:1? The Bible says he is God.
JW: He’s just “a god.”
Me: A false God?
JW: No. He’s the mighty god. But not the Almighty God.
Me: So you believe in two Gods?
JW: No. Just one God. There are lots of gods. Satan was a god.
And so it goes… round and round. Honestly, have you ever heard of anything so wacky?
