The answers can be found by reading the sacred texts of The Mayans, The Aztecs and The Incas. They are just as reliable as the governing body of the Watchtower

Jehovah's witnesses do not have their own Bible, the New World Translation of the Scriptures is an acccurate translation into English from the original manuscripts of Hebrew and Aramaic and Greek Scriptures.

In fact, it is the only Bible that is very easy to understand, you don't need to wonder what the words mean. You can compare it to any Bible and they are saying the same thing. Jehovah's witnesses also point out the maps and subject topics from the Scriptures that is in every NWT.

The Trinity doctrine is from the Roman Catholic religion, and it is not taught in the Bible, any Bible. The Rapture is a doctrine from the Protestant religions, and it is not taught in the Bible either.

The Bible teaches one God, who loves all of mankind, he is love and would never burn or torment and punish his disobedient children,
nor would an eartly loving father.

Carefully concealed in Jesus ..is all the knowledge and wisdom of God..

So if we have questions regarding God, it stands to reason , the only one who can explain him to us..is the only begotten God, who was in the bosum position with the Father.

It also means that other humans can just share the information that they themselves have learned from Jesus...because he is the source [beginning] of Gods creation.....So Jesus is the answer to anyone, wanting knowledge of God.

Jesus was praying to His Father.
How do you explain
isa. 9:6
Isaiah 9:6(ESV)
6 (A)For to us a child is born,
to us (B)a son is given;
(C)and the government shall be (D)upon[a] his shoulder,
and his name shall be called[b]
Wonderful (E)Counselor,(F)Mighty God,
(G)Everlasting (H)Father, Prince of (I)Peace.
hmmmm seems God is telling you Jesus is a Mighty God. Don't you think that is interesting.
How about this,
Hebrews 1:8 (NIV)
But about the Son he says,
“Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
hmmmm seems God is tell us His Son is a God.
how about this,
Titus 2:13 (NASB)
13 looking for the blessed hope and the (A)appearing of the glory of [a](B)our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus,
Again we see scriptures calling Jesus God. There are more but I think you get the idea..
if the scripture tell the truth then knowing the above i BELIEVE john 1;1 is translated correctly when it says,
John 1:1 (ESV)
The Word Became Flesh
1 (A)In the beginning was (B)the Word, and (C)the Word was with God, and (D)the Word was God.
These verses seem to confuse the JW's because the WT lies to them. Jesus is not the Father and no trinitarian believes that He is.
Do you know the answer?

You must gather on the Brooklyn Bridge by the Watchtower on 12/21/2012. You must wear white robes and await your deliverance. You will be saved!

The checks"donated" should include proceeds from the sales of all real estate and personal possessions. If having trouble selling real estate, please have a deed for your real estate made out to the Watchtower.The men from NY will be supervising the "saving"

This person really sounds like they have acquired the manners of Christendom. I can't imagine Jesus or the apostle John making such an appeal to others, to bring them God's Word.

To understand Jesus as God on earth praying to His Father in heaven, we need to realize that the eternal Father and the eternal Son had an eternal relationship before Jesus took upon Himself the form of a man. Please read John 5:19-27, particularly verse 23 where Jesus teaches that the Father sent the Son (also see John 15:10). Jesus did not become the Son of God when He was born in Bethlehem. He has always been the Son of God from eternity past, still is the Son of God, and always will be.

Isaiah 9:6 tells us that the Son was given and the Child was born. Jesus was always part of the tri-unity, along with the Holy Spirit. The tri-unity always existed, the Father God, the Son God, and the Spirit God, not three gods, but one God existing as three persons. Jesus taught that He and His Father are one (John 10:30), meaning that He and His Father are of the same substance and the same essence. The Father, Son and Spirit are three co-equal persons existing as God. These three had, and continue to have, an eternal relationship.

When Jesus, the eternal Son of God, took upon Himself sinless humanity He also took on the form of a servant, giving up His heavenly glory (Philippians 2:5-11). As the God-man, He had to learn obedience (Hebrews 5:8) to His Father as He was tempted by Satan, accused falsely by men, rejected by His people, and eventually crucified. His praying to His heavenly Father was to ask for power (John 11:41-42) and wisdom (Mark 1:35, 6:46). His praying showed His dependence upon His Father in His humanity to carry out His Father's plan of redemption, as evidenced in Christ's high priestly prayer in John 17. His praying demonstrated that He ultimately submitted to His Father's will, which was to go to the cross and pay the penalty (death) for our breaking God's law (Matthew 26:31-46). Of course, He rose bodily from the grave, winning forgiveness and eternal life for those who repent of sin and believe in Him as the Savior.

There is no problem with God the Son praying or talking to God the Father. As mentioned, they had an eternal relationship before Christ became a man. This relationship is depicted in the Gospels so we can see how the Son of God in His humanity carried out His Father's will, and in doing so, purchased redemption for His children (John 6:38). Christ’s continual submission to His heavenly Father was empowered and kept focused through His prayer life. Christ’s example of prayer is ours to follow.

Jesus Christ was no less God on earth when praying to His Father in heaven. He was depicting how even in sinless humanity it is necessary to have a vital prayer life in order to do His Father’s will. Jesus' praying to the Father was a demonstration of His relationship within the Trinity and an example for us that we must rely on God through prayer for the strength and wisdom we need. Since Christ, as the God-man, needed to have a vibrant prayer life, so should the follower of Christ today.
