Dr. Ron Rhodes is president of Reasoning from the Scriptures Ministries. He’s a researcher, author and apologist, having written over 60 books including titles such as: End Times Super Trends, 40 Days Through Revelation, Unmasking the Antichrist, Israel on High Alert, Reasoning from the Scriptures with Mormons and so many others. Ron returned to Crosstalk to talk about his book, Reasoning from the Scriptures with Jehovah Witnesses.
Many years ago the cults were on the outer fringes of society. Today they are next door to us. Some of them may be members of what’s known as the Watchtower Society, an organization that believes they are God’s visible representative on earth and should be obeyed as the very voice of God. Beginning with their history and founder Charles Taze Russell, Ron explains why they have a different Jesus and a different gospel and unfortunately because of this deception, they are headed into a Christ-less eternity.
Jehovah’s Witnesses believe the Bible is insufficient by itself when it comes to learning the things of God. People are not to think for themselves when it comes to interpreting Scripture. They are to have a dependent viewpoint, submitting their minds to and depending upon the Watchtower Society and their vast literature in order to understand the true meaning of the Bible.
As this broadcast moves along, Ron also looks at their New World Translation vs. the historic Christian Bible and their works-based salvation theology.
Jehovah’s Witnesses are literally a mission field that we can reach as they attempt to reach out to us. Find out how when you review this program and take advantage of the resources listed below.
