Jehovah`s Witness/Teachings of men



As you know I have just recently began researching many different religions but my question relates to the witnesses obviously.

Many have said to me that the witnesses follow men and teachings of men now I'm not sure about that myself although it does appear that men do play a big part in your teachings and the rules you follow. What is your reply to this question?

Thank you sir

Hi Mate

Hope things are well, nice to speak again.

You know this in my opinion is kind of a misunderstood subject because let's be realistic you kind of have two choices and only two, your teachings either come from God or from Men that applies to everyone.

Unless your claiming your teachings are coming from a three legged Yugoslavian mountain goat or a 7 foot Colombian rattlesnake or any kind of variation in between you don't really have another choice.

So this is my statement "Our teachings come from God not Men" or let's put it another way that means exactly the same thing "The Bible is the basis for our teachings not Men"

Now whilst it is true that we have Men in our organization who take the lead in proclaiming those teachings just like in any other church, we don't follow the teachings of Men let me illustrate.

Issac Newton a famous English scientist he discovered the law of gravity and he published that, people then took notice of that and recognized that if you jump of cliff you will die. Now does this mean that they are following the teachings of Men or the law put in place by God??

Today would people jump off a cliff or a high rise building on the basis they don't want to follow the teachings of Men(Issac newton in this case)??

So what happens is Men publish teachings from the verses in the Bible other witnesses say "Oh yeah that makes sense I understand how they reach that conclusion" and they follow that teaching, is a teaching taught with scriptural backing and using the scriptures as a basis Mans teaching or God's?? Is the law of gravity Man's teaching or God's??

Questions only you can answer for yourself

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.


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".

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.

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.
