The Original Bible for Modern Readers with footnotes answering mormons & jehovah's witnesses
David A. Reed
How will you answer the Mormons or Jehovah's Witnesses at your doorstep? They quote Bible verses to support their counterfeit gospel. This Bible features footnotes explaining how Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses twist the Scriptures -- and how to answer them on each point. Unlike the Doorstep Bible Answering Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses, on which it is based, this volume features a discreet cover, to avoid exposing the tool in your hand.
DAVID A REED served for a decade as a contributing editor of Dr. Walter Martin's Christian Research Journal and has authored some twenty books on Bible topics, including a dozen on Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons. His most popular on these two sects are:
Mormons Answered Verse by Verse (Baker Book House)
Jehovah's Witnesses Answered Verse by Verse (Baker Book House) -- Also published in French, Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Romanian, Faroese and partially in Arabic
This volume includes a modern Bible translation with notes explaining the verses that Mormons and JWs love to quote out of context -- along with notes on other verses they hate to look at because the plain reading of Scripture proves their interpretations wrong.
The TOB Bible version used here renders the divine name as Jehovah where the Hebrew name for God - the Tetragrammaton - occurs in the original manuscripts, which is especially useful in responding to both Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses. A comparison with the JW New World Translation exposes the presumptuousness of JW translators who inappropriately added "Jehovah" where it does not appear in the original manuscripts - such as at Romans 14:8, for example. Moreover, the appearance of the expression "Jehovah God" throughout the Old Testament disproves polytheistic Mormon claims that the name "Jehovah" and the title "God" (Hebrew Elohim) refer to two different Gods in their pantheon. (See the footnotes at Genesis 2:4 and Deuteronomy 6:4.)
Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses are quite different theologically, but quite similar in a number of other ways.
Theologically, Mormons view the Father, Son and Holy Ghost as three different gods, believe that God the Father was once a man, and believe that their church members will someday become gods, too -- while JWs believe that the Father is God alone, the Son is merely the first angel God created, and the "holy spirit" (which they do not capitalize) is neither God nor a person, but just a force that God uses to get things done.
However, the two sects are very similar in a number of ways:
Both view theirs as the only true Church, the restoration of true Christianity-and all other churches as apostate false religions.
Both originated in the western New York-Pennsylvania area of America during the 1800s.
Both send members door-to-door, recruiting new members and spreading their message to your doorstep.
Both have produced their own Bible translations with key verses modified or added to fit their unique teachings.
Both give lip service to the Bible, but actually put other publications above the Bible as their guide to belief and practice.
And, most seriously, both put members into an Old Testament style supposed relationship with God through an organizational hierarchy, rather than a New Testament style personal relationship with God through the risen Christ. Both sects usurp the role of Jesus as Lord, Savior and Mediator by putting their organizational hierarchy in that role instead -- requiring obedience to the organization (so it becomes their 'Lord'), making salvation dependent upon the organization (so it becomes their 'Savior'), and placing the organization in the position of Mediator, acting as God's spokesman or mouthpiece on earth today.
This volume will help you "contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints." (Jude 1:3 TOB)
