Sunday, August 27, 2006:
Yesterday, I had two Jehovah's Witnesses come to my door. I was indisposed but accepted their two tracts they wanted to leave: The Watchtower and Awake! Magazines.
I overviewed those two pamphlets today. In The Watchtower, there was a piece asserting that one's soul is not immortal. It said when the body dies, the soul dies.
Well, that's not necessarily the case. It depends upon the spiritual status of the particular person. The piece made no distinctions. It was a sweeping statement: All inclusive.
Here is what Jesus said:
But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living. (Matthew 22:31-32).
The meaning includes that Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob are yet alive.
Awake! magazine had a piece about the Holy Spirit not being a person.
Well, "person" is a semantical problem for the author. As you have probably discerned if you've read our work extensively, we are not Trinitarians in the sense that many others are Trinitarians. We believe that God is spirit. We are to become very much spirit (comprehend it) even as we still have a tangible, flesh body. Jesus still had his tangible flesh and bone even after he had gone to heaven and come back to be seen and touched by the Apostles, who watched Jesus eat fish with them even then.
Jesus said many things that substantiate this. We won't recreate every Biblical passage here. We will say that "God is a Spirit" comes right from John 4:24.
The Jehovah's Witnesses have strong views about mundane blood as well. All of the same points we have made throughout the written work apply to this issue. The spirit is over that mundane blood. That blood is not the spirit in the sense that it (that mundane blood) has a power over the spirit of God.
Apparently, they also deny hell fire.
Well, hell fire is real and an analogy at the same time. How else could it be describe to those who have not experienced it to return to tell of it? The Gospels refer to Jesus speaking of it.
But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire. (Matthew 5:22).
And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. (Matthew 18:9).
Now, if Jesus said there is hell fire, why would the Jehovah's Witnesses dispute it?
This also goes to the issues of the immortality of the soul and to theological semantics.
