One God in three persons. Is it bibilcal?
(The following article is adapted from the site Adventist Defense League with the permission of the author Edwin M. Cotto.
The bible identifies the Holy Sprit to be a seperate person from the Father & the Son (see our article : Holy Sprit is a person ).
JW's believe Holy Spirit is just the active force of God and not a person. They believe when the scriptures say that the Spirit bears witness and teaches, etc; it is mere personifcation and does not prove personality. Lets see what the NWT has to say!
Note: Much of the quotations sited below are sourced from the following websites ( 4witness , JWonline , bible.ca ).
(Note: The following article is adapted and is based on the presentation titled "Three Godhead" by Peter Gregory) There is a big problem with the idea that God can be one person. God has to be more than one person.
There is one Jehovah who is also the true God Deut 6:4 Listen, O Israel: Jehovah our God is one Jehovah .
God is Creator

No man has seen God [the Father] ? No man has seen God: Exodus 33:20 And he added: “You are not able to see my face, because no man may see me and yet live.”

Does Jesus have a beginning or is He created? If there was one reason more than another why the Watchtower produced the New World Translation, it was not to uphold the Deity of Christ or the Godhead. However, the truth is still in the very translation they have produced. Let's see what happens when we allow the scriptures to explain themselves! Following are 4 primary texts used by Jehovah witness’s to show that Christ was created. They are:
The "Angel" in the Pillar of Cloud Ex. 23:20-23 Here I am sending an angel ahead of you to keep you on the road and to bring you into the place that I have prepared. Watch yourself because of him and obey his voice . Do not behave rebelliously against him, for he will not pardon YOUR transgression ; because my name is within him . 22 However, if you strictly obey his voice and really do all that I shall speak, then I shall certainly be hostile to your enemies and harass those who harass you. 23 For my angel will go ahead of you and will indeed bring you to the Am´or·ites and the Hit´tites and the Per´iz·zites and the Ca´naan·ites, the Hi´vites and the Jeb´u·sites, and I shall certainly efface them. Ex. 13:21 And Jehovah was going ahead of them in the daytime in a pillar of cloud to lead them by the way, and in the nighttime in a pillar of fire to give them light to go in the daytime and nighttime.
