Last weekend two Jehovah’s Witnessess came to our door, for the first time. They handed me a Watchtower magazine and the guy asked if he would be welcome to talk about it soon. I always want to talk about the true Christian Trinitarian faith, I was assuming that this will be were the conversation will be going.
So I have been doing some reading again and comparing some verses to the New World Translation. I also watched a video by James White in which he discussed the introduction of 2 Peter.
“Simon Peter, a bond-servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ:” 2 Peter 1:1 [NASB]
The verse seems clear enough, our God and Savior, Jesus Christ. The following verse:
“Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord” 2 Peter 1:2
Here Peter splits God and Jesus. The knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord. So I can allready hear the question. "If Jesus is God, then why does Peter, and Paul so often speak of God AND Jesus, and not God the Father AND Jesus (the Son)?
Does anybody know some good explanation?
