Question
hello Bro. DW. Can you help me to these questions? What are the differences of JW's beliefs contrary to Iglesia ni Cristo beliefs. Why and how the other side is in harmony with the Bible and the other is in error. Can you please show me the list of the errors of both parties if possible, as well as the beliefs that in harmony with the Bible. Is it important to know which is really the true religion? I'll indeed be thankful if you can satisfy the readers, thus justify my questions.
Take care. Jah bless

Answer
Hello my friend

Thanks for writing

Sorry for the long delay. You have no idea how hectic my schedule has been. Anyway

The absolute first thing I want you to understand is that there are thousand's of religion's and religious denomination's the reason being is that Satan is the master of confusion. He will use every tactic imaginable to turn people away from pure worship and confusion my friend is a big part of that.

God on the other hand has quite simply counteracted that by allowing us the simplicity of logic and common sense to find the truth. He created us to understand thing's a certain way that's what we do and the truth is no exception to that. There is one way to do that and one way only. If it's in the scripture's it's the truth.

1 John 4 "Beloved ones, do not believe every inspired expression,*+ but test the inspired expressions* to see whether they originate with God,+ because many false prophets have gone forth into the world"

Do not be misled it's this one scriptural principle that should be the basis for finding the truth.

So with that in mind let's talk scriptural teaching's between the two religion's.

The reality is the INC copied most of their beliefs from us there founder was associated with Jehovah's witnesses or Bible student's as we where known back then (and a few other denomination's) .So to examine all there belief's is kinda pointless so I'll show you where they run into a major problem.

Unlike Jehovah's witnesses they do not believe that Jesus is ruling as King right now.In effect they don't believe Jesus is here/present. This present's a real snowball effect on their truth firstly according to this scripture here they're gonna get caught out just like the rest of false religion.

Matt 25 “Then the kingdom of the heavens will become like ten virgins that took their lamps+ and went out to meet the bridegroom.+ 2 Five of them were foolish,+ and five were discreet.+ 3 For the foolish took their lamps but took no oil with them, 4 whereas the discreet took oil in their receptacles with their lamps. 5 While the bridegroom was delaying, they all nodded and went to sleep.+ 6 Right in the middle of the night there arose a cry,+ ‘Here is the bridegroom! Be on YOUR way out to meet him.’ 7 Then all those virgins rose and put their lamps+ in order. 8 The foolish said to the discreet, ‘Give us some of YOUR oil,+ because our lamps are about to go out.’ 9 The discreet+ answered with the words, ‘Perhaps there may not be quite enough for us and YOU. Be on YOUR way, instead, to those who sell it and buy for yourselves.’ 10 While they were going off to buy, the bridegroom arrived, and the virgins that were ready went in with him to the marriage feast;+ and the door was shut. 11 Afterwards the rest of the virgins also came, saying, ‘Sir, sir, open to us!’+ 12 In answer he said, ‘I tell YOU the truth, I do not know YOU."

Now notice in the chapter there is 10 Virgin's and they're all asleep. They wake up at the cry of "here is the bridegroom" (VS 6) and go out to meet him. However the foolish virgin's aren't prepared so while they're going off to get prepared Jesus arrive's(10) and they miss out.

Now the problem for false religion including INC is this. They don't believe the cry of here is the bridegroom has gone out yet so by their own admission they are asleep awaiting that cry.

They're either sleeping or he's here ?? Take your pick Christendom!!

They're spiritually asleep.

Which is why they are not doing the most important work that identifies Jesus followers

Matt 24:

14 "And this good news+ OF THE KINGDOM+ will be preached* in all the inhabited earth* for a witness* to all the nations;+ and then the end*+ will come"

They can't be preaching the KINGDOM because they don't even know that it's here.

Now there's one more thing I wanted to go over with you which really highlight's how they don't even get the point of Jesus sacrifice in the first place. That's based on blood transfusion's . They allow blood transfusion's.

Now for me that set's alarm bell's ringing if you can't even get the whole point why blood tranfusion's are wrong in the sight of God.

Below is a link of a question I answered on this very subject

So that's two very major flaws in their scriptural understanding.

Bro DW

Expertise

I have many years of experience serving Jehovah . I have known Jehovah a long time and I have known his organization . I have been privileged to see great progress not only in my own personal relationship with my God and Father but within his organization. I am an avid reader of the bible and have been gifted by my Father with the indescribable privilege of being allowed to understand his own word.

Experience

The truth is all about scripture and logic. The two go hand in hand . There is not one bible verse that cannot be understood within the realms of human reasoning. Not one!! Why would it?? The bible is God's message to his creation . His creation who he made to understand things in a specific way. God is not stupid or unwise as to leave as a message then allow us to guess what it means or who he is. 1 Tim 2:3This is fine and acceptable in the sight of our Savior, God, 4whose will is that all sorts of people should be saved and come to an accurate knowledge of truth" Notice the expression "accurate knowledge".

Organizations
The bible leaves signs of true christianity there are many. Jehovah's witnesses meet every single sign. One sign is the removal of false teachings that permeated the world soon after the apostles died. Jesus foretold this and he also foretold of the restoration of pure worship in the period known as the last days. The days we are currently living in. Jesus was a master of using illustrations he used an illustration to highlight this point Matt 13: "The Kingdom of the heavens may be likened to a man who sowed fine seed in his field. 25While men were sleeping, his enemy came and oversowed weeds in among the wheat and left. 26When the stalk sprouted and produced fruit, then the weeds also appeared. 27So the slaves of the master of the house came and said to him, ‘Master, did you not sow fine seed in your field? How, then, does it have weeds?’ 28He said to them, ‘An enemy, a man, did this.’ The slaves said to him, ‘Do you want us, then, to go out and collect them?’ 29He said, ‘No, for fear that while collecting the weeds, you uproot the wheat with them. 30Let both grow together until the harvest, and in the harvest season, I will tell the reapers: First collect the weeds and bind them in bundles to burn them up; then gather the wheat into my storehouse" Why did he speak in illustrations? Matt 13:10So the disciples came and said to him: “Why do you speak to them by the use of illustrations?” 11In reply he said: “To you it is granted to understand the sacred secrets of the Kingdom of the heavens, but to them it is not granted" The kingdom of the heavens is full of sacred secrets that Jesus reveals only to his followers. This privilege is open to all who are really willing to submit to God and his Christ in action not just in words. These are the ones God is looking for. Are you really one?? If so I encourage you to let Jehovah's witnesses show you what the Bible really teaches.

Education/Credentials
False religion is disgusting to God and to his true worshippers it is likened in the Bible to a harlot Rev 17:"I will show you the judgment upon the great harlot who sits on many waters, 2with whom the kings of the earth committed fornication, whereas those who inhabit the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication" Whereas the bride of Christ is likened to a virgin Rev 14: 4"These are the ones who did not defile themselves with women; in fact, they are virgins" These are both used as spiritual terms here and show the importance of pure and clean worship for God's people.
