Per Fidem Intrepidus means "Fearless Through Faith". My courage isn't my own, it comes from the Holy Spirit, it's my faith in God and my personal savior Christ Jesus that calms my fears and allows me to move forward in this fallen world. Personally I'm afraid of a lot of stuff, but having the faith that Jesus adopted me as his little, sin filled, brother keeps me going.

WWUTT Wednesday - All About The Watchtower

I'm not going to say anything bad about the members of Jehovah's Witnesses, like all people I've met most of them are very nice, pleasant people with enough exceptions thrown in to the mix to make it interesting. What I do have is a big problem with is their beliefs. 

Many of the Beliefs if the Jehovah's Witnesses at best can be described as unbiblical. At the worst they are  utterly blasphemous. It's legalism gone wild. Not only are JW's forbidden to vote, salute the flag, play team sports serve on a jury, they're not allowed to buy Girl Scout cookies!Are JW's saved? Here's a list of just a few of their beliefs, compare them with what God says in your bible and you tell me:
  1. God is not a Trinity; the doctrine is inspired by the Devil
  2. Jesus Christ is a "created being," who at one time did not exist
  3. Jesus is not to be worshiped or prayed to because he is only an angel (a.k.a. Michael the archangel)
  4. The Holy Spirit is not a person but is "God's active force" i.e. gravity, electricity etc.
  5. Heaven is only for select Jehovah's Witnesses. The majority of Jehovah's Witnesses hope to live on "paradise earth"
  6. Heaven is limited only to 144,000 Jehovah's Witnesses. There are only 9,105 alive today (2006 figures)
  7. Jehovah's Witnesses are the only "true Christians." All churches and denominations are considered "false religion"
  8. There is no Hell or eternal judgment ("Hell" is simply the grave)
  9. There is no life after death except for the 144,000 Jehovah's Witnesses
  10. Salvation is earned only by being a loyal Jehovah's Witness
  11. Jesus second coming happened invisibly and secretly in 1914
  12. The "first resurrection" occurred in 1918
  13. Jesus did not rise from the dead bodily but as a spirit being
  14. Jesus was equal to Adam (just a man)
  15. Jesus could have sinned and failed in his mission
  16. Jesus was not born the savior but became the savior at his baptism
  17. God is not omnipresent
  18. God is not omniscient
  19. JWs are not sure of their salvation
  20. All earthly governments are controlled by the Devil
  21. The Holy Spirit is only available to select Jehovah's Witnesses (source)


  1. Great summary! Just finished visiting with some JWs earlier this morning. Typical routine. Hope I planted some seeds, at least with the younger one.

  2. I've written an examination of the SDA and their teachings, demonstrating that they are a cult:
