“I SAID: YOU ARE GODS”

THE NWT TESTIFIES THAT THE TRINITY IS THE ETERNAL CREATOR!

In this relatively short, post I will show from the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ own perverted Bible translation that the one true Creator God is Triune. I will be using the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (Study Edition). According to the Hebrew Bible, Jehovah created and gives life to all creation all by himself, without anyone […]

ISRAEL’S MULTI-PERSONAL GOD
