Using more Dishonesty to ‘Prove’ that the Trinity Doctrine is false?

Another sample of the Watch Tower misquoting authors is printed in the Watchtower –July 15, 1990 on page 23 in an article entitled ‘AGAINST KNOWLEDGE- FALSELY SO CALLED’ which begins on page 21.

Under the subheading ‘Against Heresies’  they state  “Irenaeus  repeatedly re-affirms belief in “one God, the Father Almighty, who made the heaven, and the earth, and the seas, and all that is in them, and in one Christ Jesus, the son of God, who was made flesh for our salvation.” These facts the Gnostics denied!”

While this statement is true, the Watch Tower then misquotes Irenaeus so that it would appear that he is in agreement with them, believing that Jesus is not Himself deity, when Irenaeus actually states that Christ is divine in the real quote.

Watchtower –July 15, 1990 page #23 below

They got this quote from ‘Biblical Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature’-Volume 4, page # 649 Prepared by Rev. John M’Clintock, D.D., and James Strong, S.T.D.

 Since the Watch Tower does not believe that Christ is divine as Irenaeus does, they simply remove the part of Irenaeus’ statement that says Christ is divine.  It is that easy, now Irenaeus is stating that Christ while on earth is simply human, in perfect agreement with the Watch Tower.

 

If you are one on Jehovah’s Witnesses, this is what you are calling ‘truth’.

While you may think that you are ‘in the truth’ while abiding in this sort of deception, common sense and thinking in the realm of reality should bring you to a different conclusion.  Holding on to an organization like this one that intentionally deceives you while claiming to speak for Jehovah God, is to ignore reality and embrace fantasy.

One Response to Using more Dishonesty to ‘Prove’ that the Trinity Doctrine is false?

  1. Defending Jehovah says:

    THE CROSS

    In the book “Reasoning From The Scriptures” on page 89,
    The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society quote the Imperial Bible-Dictionary:

    “The Imperial Bible-Dictionary acknowledges this, saying: “The Greek word for cross, [stau·ros´], properly signified a stake, an upright pole, or piece of paling, on which anything might be hung, or which might be used in impaling [fencing in] a piece of ground. . . . Even amongst the Romans the crux (from which our cross is derived) appears to have been originally an upright pole.”-Edited by P. Fairbairn (London, 1874), Vol. I, p. 376.”

    This is another good example of the Watchtower Society’s dishonesty in omitting words that would change the quote to mean the opposite of what the Imperial Bible-Dictionary is claiming.

    What exactly is hidden by use of ellipses (…)?
    In addition, the word “pole” was not the end of the sentence quoted.

    THE IMPERIAL BIBLE-DICTIONARY SHOWS QUITE THE OPPOSITE OF WHAT THE WATCHTOWER ATTEMPTS TO PROVE!

    The Imperial Bible-Dictionary:

    Page 376
    “The Greek word for cross, (stauros), properly signified a stake, an upright pole, or piece of paling, on which anything might be hung, or which might be used in impaling (fencing in) a piece of ground. BUT A MODIFICATION WAS INTRODUCED AS THE DOMINION AND USAGES OF ROME EXTENDED THEMSELVES THROUGH GREEK-SPEAKING COUNTRES. Even amongst the Romans, the crux (from which the word cross is derived) appears to have been originally an upright pole, AND THIS ALWAYS REMAINED THE MORE PROMINENT PART. But from the time that it began to be used as an instrument of punishment, a traverse piece of wood was commonly added: not however always even then.
    … There can be no doubt, however, that the later sort was the more common, and that about the period of the Gospel Age, crucifixion was usually accomplished by suspending the criminal on a cross piece of wood.

    Page 377
    … But the commonest form, it is understood, was that in which the upright piece of wood was crossed by another near the top, but not precisely at it, the upright pole running above the other, thus “a cross” and so making four, not merely two right angles. It was on a cross of this form, according to the general voice of tradition, that our Lord suffered; …

    JESUS DIED ON A CROSS!

    The Bible tells us, there are requirements for a “Sin Offering”.

    Ezekiel 43:18-20
    · You must take some of the offering’s blood and put it’s blood upon the four corners of that alter. By doing so, it purifies it from sin and makes atonement for it.

    There are four corners to the cross:

    Left hand
    Right hand
    His Feet
    Crown of thorns on His head.

    Ezekiel 45:18-20

    · The sin offering has to be without blemish.

    Jesus was without sin.

    Jesus did not die on a stake; I can only find two corners:

    His hands
    His feet
