READ_GHL_The Apologetic need in my community Regarding God, Jehovah’s Witnesses believe in one God, the Creator of the universe. They claim God has revealed his personal name to humanity which is Jehovah and although he sees al things, he only has a spiritual body which lives in heaven; therefore they deny the trinity doctrine. Jehovah’s Witnesses disagree with the fact that Jesus was completely God and completely man, they believe and teach that Jesus were first created by God before God created Adam. They claim Jesus was a spirit (spokesman) and took on the human form as the man Jesus. The purpose regarding Jesus incarnation to earth was to teach the truth about God, to provide an example of a perfect life for people to follow and also to set the humans free from sin and death, through his sacrifice on the cross. they believe he was crucified on a upright stick , not a cross and after his death God raised him as a spirit creature thereafter he returned to heaven, where he was only made king in 1914. Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that the Holy Spirit is God’s active force, rather than part of the threefold. They believe that they have to earn a place in heaven to partake in God’s kingdom on the future earth and also to help others achieve this. Their focus are living morally, acceptable before God and witnessing their faith to others. Salvation for them comes from Jesus, but only to even the sin of Adam, and eternal life comes from learning about Jehovah and his requirements. Afterlife to a Jehovah’s Witnesses is slightly different than a Christian view, apparently all people will be resurrected at Armageddon, to get a chance to gain eternal life. Although only 144 000 people will rule with Jesus and God in heaven, the rest of the righteous people will stay in paradise on the new earth, with no death sickness or unhappiness. Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that the world has become progressively worse because of the fact that after Jesus became King in heaven in 1914, he casted out the devil. Lastly Jehovah’s Witnesses consider themselves true Christians, Beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses (2013: 1-2). 7

READ_GHL_The Apologetic need in my community According to Richard (2011: 2 of 2) the problem is not with the Bible or with God, but rather with us as humans. We have been deceived by Satan to easily miss the message of God’s great love for us. So then we believe that God is annoyed with us and it doesn’t help us at all to have an attitude like that. He concludes to say that this attitude in turn causes “contradictions” supposedly from the Bible.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
