Jehovah`s Witness/Creator

Question
The Watchtower teaches Jehovah's Witnesses that [ "Jehovah only
created ONE THING directly-(Michael the archangel), then Michael
the archangel "created "ALL OTHER THINGS", such as the "heavens",
"the earth", "Adam and Eve", and "All other angels".

My question is "What ever happened to Genesis 1:1- "In the beg-
inning "GOD" created the heavens and the earth."?

Should Genesis 1:1 say- "In the beginning "Michael the archangel"
created the heavens and the earth."?

Answer
SHOULD GENESIS 1:1 SAY- "IN THE BEGINNING "MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL" CREATED THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH."?

When we pass a new housing scheme, does the sign say; “Betts Homes” or “ “ built by various joiners, plumbers etc”? Men built the houses, but they were authorised to do so by “Betts” who provided all the needed essentials for the job to be done.

A businessman uses a secretary to write letters for him.’ Yet does the letter say it’s from him or her? When you receive the letter written by a secretary, do you ignore it as not coming from that businessman?

Likewise; Jehovah delegated tremendous power and authority to this Son, assigning him to carry out His creative purposes & giving him all the power to do the task.

"I (Jesus) came to be beside him (Jehovah) as a MASTER WORKER, and I came to be the one he was specially fond of day by day, I being glad before him all the time, being glad at the productive land of his earth, and the things I was fond of were with the sons of men." (PROVERBS 8;30,31)

Expertise

I have been one of Jehovah`s Witneses now for over 30 years, in those years I have brought up 4 children, teaching each of them the bible.Being one of Jehovah`s Witnesses has helped me cope with my Epilepsy and bring up a daughter with learning difficulties.I have conducted bible studies with people from nearly every denomination i.e. Muslim. Having used the bible all these years to answer peoples questions, I feel I am qualified to give any answer regarding Jehovah`s Witnesses and the bible.

Experience

My experience has been one of attending bible lectures 5 times a week,taking part in these lectures in front of an audience and being with thousands of J.W. at conventions where I have seen the bible at work in peoples lives.It is truly a miracle when you see thousands of people meeting together and not one policeman needed, and not even a piece of litter in sight.It is like another world.

Education/Credentials
Nearly 40 years as a Witness, is my "education" bringing up 4 children, dealing with Epilepsy, bringing up a disabled daughter.
