The Theism Of Jehovah’s Witnesses: Possible or Impossible?


I intend to show that the God of the Watchtower is finite and is in the same metaphysical situation as the rest of his alleged creation and therefore could not be the Creator of all that exists. It is my opinion that the Anointed of the Watchtower have done what it states in Romans 1:22-23:

Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man...Link.

Hi Ron,
This artcle by James Steward somewhat misrepresents the views of JW's.

Jeff Downs (who's site you link to) recently arranged for Greg Stafford to appear for some debate on a radio show, the outcome of that discussion will be a full blown debate between Greg Stafford and Dr Morey on this topic some time early next year. There is mention of this and some discussion by Mr Stafford here:

sounds interesting. In what way are the JW's misrepresented?

Ousboi, the link you gave isn't working.

???It works when I past it into the address bar of my browser, maybe the site was down.

I would quite like to write a reply to that article, such would take some time though.

An example of misrepresentation: The article gives the impression that JW's teach that God dwells at a location within the physical universe. Such is not what JW's teach.

It's working. Stafford is a bit hazy on his understanding of Calvinism.

Morey's site is strident to say the least.

I would like your comment on this article.

Hello Ron,
Mr Bowman does try hard to present JW's view of God accuraty, he has done plenty of research, but he fails to represent our understanding of God accurately in some respects. I may write a commentary on this article and post it on a blog, I would have to do some detailed research on some finer points and of course ask Rob before posting any large amount of material from his article.
