Jehovah’s Witnesses – What about Acts 8:37?

There is a verse (among several) that is missing from the New World Translation that is vital for people in the Jehovah’s Witnesses to consider.  That verse is Acts 8:37. The reason this verse is so important is that it speaks to Jesus being God, something that the Jehovah’s Witnesses deny. From the Jehovah’s Witnesses website: However, we take Jesus at his word when he said: “The Father is greater than I am.” (John 14:28) So we do not worship Jesus, as we do not believe that he is Almighty God.

The Hope of All Christians

There is one belief that is core to being a Christian and that is belief in the resurrection. Without the resurrection there is no hope for salvation. The resurrection is a fact that was testified to by over 500 witnesses.

To be close to God, you must be close to Jesus

How small I feel when flying in an airplane. The land below seems so big when I look out the window. Then I think about how tiny our planet Earth is in comparison to the Universe. I ask myself, “Am I really closer to God when I am 33,000 feet in the air compared to when I am standing on the ground?”

In Christ Jesus, We Receive the Perfect Gift

Eternal hope is reflected in every child that is born. All sorts of possibilities are wrapped up in the precious gift of a baby. We don’t know what the future holds for our children. God, however, knew what would become of his only son. Jesus, the Christ child, was given by God as the perfect gift for all mankind.

Nicodemus – John 3:1-7

We see often, that when Jesus was asked a question by the Pharisees, that their motive was not sincere. When Jesus heard their question, this is what we are told happened.

Luke 5:31-32

And Jesus answering said unto them, They that are whole need not a physician; but they that are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. Luke 5:31-32 KJV Have you ever met someone who wants to be right with God before they come to him? Or, how about the person who thinks that they are “good enough” or “better than most?” While it is a noble desire to be right with God, it is a very dangerous thing to think that you are good enough! What both of these kinds of people don’t know is that they are sick with a disease that has no human cure. It is a cancer of the worst sort. Jesus calls himself a physician who has come to heal the sick. The sickness he specializes in is sin. Who are the ones that are sick? Sinners in need of repentance. This can only come as the result of the Lord’s work in our life. The righteous in this example refers to the religious leaders of Jesus’ time. The sinners were referenced as a “great company.” Come to Jesus in repentance for your sins. He can heal you for eternity!

Matthew 7:29

It is interesting to note that when Jesus teaches in the Bible that the people noticed something different about his teaching. “For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.” Matthew 7:29 The teaching of Jesus is worth studying, because it has with it the authority of God.
