Contender Ministries highly recommends Dr. Gary Frazier's new book "It Could Happen Tomorrow - Future Events That will Shake the World".  This is a must read for every Christian, and will be an invaluable guide to the end-times for anyone interested in Bible prophecy.

 

This book will not only inform you, it will inspire you and challenge you to increased evangelistic consciousness, greater missionary concern, and a desire to live a holy life in an unholy age.
    - Tim Lahaye, co-author of the New York Times Bestselling Series Left Behind


Have you ever been at home, heard the knock on the door, and found a pair of nice looking people wanting to give you a free magazine?  Where the magazine is titled Awake! or Watchtower?  I know I have.  These people are Jehovah’s Witnesses, and the message they have to share is a dangerous perversion of Christianity.  Have you passed a Kingdom Hall building and wondered what occurred inside?  I have.  Let’s take a look at a brief overview of the Jehovah’s Witnesses.  At the bottom of this page, you will find a link to a page where we will cover some JW beliefs and how they compare to Christianity.  After a careful review, perhaps you will feel the burden to pray for these decent but disillusioned people.  Perhaps next time they come knocking at your door, you will have a message for them. 

            The Jehovah’s Witnesses got their start in 1884, when Charles Russell formed Zion’s Watch Tower Tract Society, though their true roots sprang up fourteen years earlier from a Bible Study Russell organized in Allegheny, Pennsylvania.  From these meager beginnings, much like the Mormon Church, evolved a large empire.  In 1999, Jehovah’s Witnesses Worldwide reported that a total of nearly 6 million JW’s spent about 1.1 billion hours evangelizing in 234 countries. 

            The JW’s publish two semi-monthly magazines as their primary publications.  Awake! targets mostly non-JW’s and focuses on non-Biblical topics such as current events and news stories.  The Watchtower magazine is toted as the “chief means of instructing members in doctrine and practice” (Jehovah’s Witness Literature, p.155).  The Watchtower circulation per issue was 16,100,000 in 116 languages as of 1994. 

            In a manner similar to Mormonism, JW’s believe that their organization is the only true Christian organization.  They believe that the truths of scripture were lost through a great apostasy centuries ago until God used Charles Russell to restore the gospel.  JW shares some doctrinal beliefs with Christianity, but most of their beliefs either completely contradict, or at least pervert Biblical truths.  Click on the link below to view a comparison table.
