Who is God in Christianity? God in Christianity is a personal supreme God who is Creator and Lord of everything that exists. He eternally exists as Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – one God in three Persons and co-equal. However, in the Jehovah’s Witness camp, God is seen in a rather different light. He is the supreme being, properly called Jehovah (as the religion’s name so aptly calls out), but the Holy Spirit is represented by an impersonal force, and the idea of a co-equal Triune God is expressly denied. So in regards to these so often mixed up religious systems, it appears, one of these can be right or both can be wrong, but it is most certain that they can’t both be right. So how can we know the truth?
1. When you look at the obvious differences noted above, how is it that Jehovah’s Witnesses are represented as just another Christian “denomination”?
2. How would you explain the doctrine of our Triune God if someone were to ask?
Challenge: Do you know how they train bank personnel to recognize counterfeit bills? They train them to become so aware and adept at recognizing the real article that they recognize a fake right away. It is the same with God’s Word. The more intimately you are aware of His truth, the more easily lies can be unmasked. Read your Bible every day!
