DISCLAIMER: The purpose of this post is NOT to discourage the use of the name “Jehovah.” The purpose is to dispel the notion put forth by the Watchtower Society that it is the ONLY name we are to use when referring to God. There is nothing wrong with using “Jehovah,” nor is it the only […]
We continue our month long series on the deity of Jesus Christ and the doctrine of the Trinity with Don Green’s sermon Jesus Declares His Deity. If you did not hear last Wednesday’s sermon of the week by Don Green I highly encourage you to check it out here. It was entitled John 1:1 and […]
DefCon will be examining the deity of Jesus Christ throughout the month of December. Each sermon of the week will feature the next installment of this five-part series by Don Green. We start off with part one today with the sermon entitled John 1:1 and the Jehovah’s Witnesses. This is a superb journey into the […]

“If the ark and the tabernacle had to be built exactly according to God’s plan, should not the Church also be built according to His plan? Surely the Bride of Christ is of even greater importance than the ark or the tabernacle.” – Trevor Mcllwain
As most Americans celebrate Halloween today there is a smaller segment that will celebrate Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 theses to the Wittenberg door in 1517 which sparked the Protestant reformation. But there’s an even smaller segment that will recognize a much-lesser known event that occurred on this day almost a hundred years ago. […]
Question: Would there ever be an occasion in which you would equate God the Father on the same plane as anything or anyone else? Would you ever combine or associate God with anyone or anything in which the relation would indicate or imply equality? For example, would you ever assert that God and electricity are […]
When I ask if Jehovah’s Witnesses are children of the devil, I’m not trying to provoke an emotional response. The Watchtower leaves me with no other option than to answer that question in the affirmative. I’ve asked many Jehovah’s Witnesses if they’re children of God or children of the devil, and most have refused to […]
Your sermon of the week is a fantastic message by John Piper entitled God’s Wrath: Vengeance is Mine, I Will Repay. This message is a must-hear for Jehovah’s Witnesses and others who deny Hell’s existence. It is also for those who limit the reality of Hell’s punishment, intensity, eternality, severity, etc. This sermon destroys the […]
The Jehovah’s Witnesses deny it, the Mormons reject it, the Gentiles are offended by it, the Jews stumble over it. Oh, the wonderful cross.
In this 14 minute audio clip from Way of the Master Radio (WOTMR), Todd Friel plays an audio clip of Ray Comfort witnessing to a Jehovah’s Witness who came to his door. This was not a dramatization nor a reenactment, but the actual conversation recorded as it happened. It was a great discourse and the […]
My friend and I had an adventure at the Jehovah’s Witness district convention on the weekend. Our goal was to pass out tracts to those leaving the event. I was surprised by how large the event was—probably a few thousand people. One person told me all the surrounding states were represented. We sat on a […]
Watch the video at this post. Then read what another group had to say about Jesus’ “Second Coming” Coincidence? I don’t think so.
The Bible Reference Notes for today are on the subject of Whose Name? I put these together a while back when debating with some Jehovah’s Witnesses on exactly whose name is above all other names. I thought readers would be interested in this (especially if this topic comes up with a JW). To find out […]
Over the last few years, I’ve noticed a pattern among many false religions and false teachers of the Word. Catholicism–Don’t bother reading your Bible. You can’t understand it. Let the Magisterium tell you what it means. Mormonism–Don’t bother reading your Bible. You can’t trust it, it’s been corrupted. Just let the General Authorities tell you […]
It was the spring of 2006 and I kept seeing Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses going door to door throughout the neighborhoods of my community. It got me thinking: What are the local Christian Churches doing to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to combat the spread of false doctrine in our community? Additionally I […]
The following is the jist of an exchange I had on another blog with a Jehovah’s Witness about the roles of the Father and the Son in the work of creation. Suppose a fellow named William Taylor is telling me how a house got built. William Taylor: Yep, I know the fellow that built that house. […]
What did it take for God to save us? To put it into human terms, I would say this: Suppose I broke into your house, tied you up, and made you watch as I beat your son, killed your wife, and stole everything you owned. You call the police, they come and arrest me, and […]
This time it’s a twenty-two year-old mother who died after giving birth to twins. Read the story here. Also see this related post on the Watchtower’s murder of a fourteen year-old boy.
From Tower To Truth Ministries, they show us a couple of ways to answer the Jehovah’s Witnesses and their booklet Should You Believe In The Trinity? In this dialogue, Chris is the Christian, John is the Jehovah’s Witness. Here is an excerpt from the full article: Chris: In fact, I found [the booklet] to be […]
Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that none of the Old Testament saints are going to heaven. Only 144,000 good Jehovah’s Witnesses (who have lived since Jesus’ death) will be in heaven. The Old Testament saints and today’s generation of JWs will eventually live on paradise on earth. If there’s one verse saying that anyone from the Old […]
“True, there have been those in times past who predicted an “end to the world,” even announcing a specific date. Some have gathered groups of people with them and fled to the hills or withdrawn into their houses waiting for the end. Yet, nothing happened. The “end” did not come. They were guilty of false […]
A Jehovah’s Witness by the name of TJ has been going “door to door” in cyberspace. Actually he’s been going “blog to blog” with his messages of Hath God really said? I engaged him on one blog regarding the physical, bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ (which he denies occurred). If you’re interested in some good […]
Your Bible reference notes for today are on the topic of Hell and the eternal nature of the human soul. I composed this in 2006 during my four-week debate with Jehovah’s Witnesses as they argued that Hell is fictional and that the sinner’s soul simply ceases to exist after death. Additionally, in light of the […]
This is an interesting three-minute video. It starts off rather strange, and a few seconds into it you may find yourself asking, “Why am I watching this?” But hang in there. As weird as it may seem at first, it actually makes a fantastic point while using a little humor to drive that point […]
I just got through reading the brand new book Winning the Witnesses by Daniel Rodriguez (Evangelist to Jehovah’s Witnesses for over 22 years). It was a very good book; quick and easy read. This 107-page book deals with evangelizing Jehovah’s Witnesses using an entirely different method than suggested previously by such men as Walter Martin and […]
Pretty good 3-minute video . . . and the music was a great choice.
