Exploring the Beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses and the Watchtower Movement.
May 16, 2024 - 62 min
Hey there, welcome back to another episode of Salty Saints Podcast. In this episode, Randy and I dive deep into the world of Jehovah's Witnesses and the Watchtower movement. We start off by discussing the history of Jehovah's Witnesses, tracing back to Charles Taze Russell and the founding of the Bible Student Movement. We explore the split that occurred after Russell's death, leading to the establishment of the Jehovah's Witnesses under Joseph Rutherford. Moving on to their beliefs, we uncover some interesting facts. Jehovah's Witnesses reject the Trinity, viewing Jesus as a created being who attained a form of godhood. They have their own translation of scripture, The New World Translation, which alters certain passages to align with their beliefs. When it comes to salvation, Jehovah's Witnesses have a works-based approach. Salvation is achieved through knowledge of God, obedience to God's laws, membership in the Jehovah's Witness organization, and active participation in spreading their doctrine. We also delve into their unique beliefs about the afterlife, with the 144,000 anointed individuals receiving a spiritual resurrection, the great crowd receiving a physical resurrection on a new paradise earth, and the rest facing annihilation or soul death. One intriguing aspect we discuss is their annual memorial of Christ's death, where only the anointed are allowed to partake in communion. This practice highlights the exclusivity within the Jehovah's Witness community. Overall, we dissect the key elements of Jehovah's Witnesses' beliefs and practices, shedding light on their distinctive doctrines and the implications they have on salvation and the afterlife. Join us as we unravel the complexities of this religious movement and explore the implications of their teachings. Tune in to this episode for a deep dive into the world of Jehovah's Witnesses and the Watchtower movement. Stay salty, my friends.

Hey, I’m Zack! I’m a pastor at New Hope Church on the south side of Indianapolis, IN. I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University with a degree in Biblical Studies. I am currently engaged to my fiancé Abby, and depending on how often these bios get updated, I may be married by the time you’re reading this. I love apologetics, theology, and hearing about people coming to Christ. My goal as a Christian is to grow more and more into the likeness of Christ, to spread the Gospel, and to disciple others to do the same. In all reality, I could go into depth about who I am, but the best way to find that out is to tune into the podcast… like right now… :)
