I will only take the time to correct one of your false statements:Sooner or later almost every person will encounter a Jehovah’s Witness (JWs) or at least see their Watchtower or Awake magazines laying around. Who are these people and what are the Jehovah’s Witnesses beliefs?
Jehovah’s Witnesses (or Jehovah Witnesses) are people who think God’s Organization on earth today and single channel of spiritual truth is located in Brooklyn, New York. They call that place The Watchtower or sometimes Bethel, from the Biblical term which means house of God.
Most significantly, they also believe only their leaders in Brooklyn have the ability to correctly interpret the Bible and accurately teach God’s word. That is how the Jehovah’s Witness mind has been indoctrinated. That causes them to not interpret the Bible on their own, but merely receive whatever they are taught from Brooklyn. Hence, the teachings communicated by the local JWs, who come to our doors is what is written in the various Watchtower Bible and Tract Society publications. Some of their main teachings are:
● hell is the grave
● the wicked will be annihilated
● the Trinity is pagan
● a Trinitarian believes Jesus is the person of the father.
● Jesus is not deity but merely Michael the archangel, the first and greatest creation of Jehovah God.
● only 144,000 can be “born again” and will go to heaven
● and most JWs will not go to heaven but instead reside on paradise earth.
At the very core of their door-to-door campaign is what they call the good news of the kingdom, which is not the real Biblical good news of the kingdom (repentance towards God and faith in Christ Jesus for salvation), Acts 20:21-25. Their message is about a future paradise on earth with perfect peace for 1,000 years.
They are eager to discuss and attack the Trinity and deity of Christ doctrines because most professing Christians are not able to defend their own beliefs. When it comes to salvation, the JWs think taking in knowledge as defined by their leaders, is how they can get eternal life. This comes from their misuse of John 17:3.
And to quote you,"Jehovah’s Witnesses firmly believe that the Sacred Scriptures, Most significantly, they also believe only their leaders in Brooklyn have the ability to correctly interpret the Bible and accurately teach God’s word."
