Question: Luke 24:39- Since the man Jesus ceased to exist at his death, and the spirit Jesus talking here is a newly created person, isn't the statement "it is I myself" a lie? John 2:19- If Jesus was raised as a spirit creature, why did he say that he would raise up his current body, rather than create a new one? 1 Corinthians 15:44- If our resurrected body will not be the ones we have now, why does it say that our bodies will be "sown" and then "raised"? Also, if only the 144,000 will gain spirit bodies, why does it say that all the bodies in the resurrection will be spirit bodies? Isaiah 63:10 and John 16:13- If the Holy Spirit is impersonal, why does it say it felt hurt, hears, and speaks what it hears? Isn't John 16:13 a similar description of Jesus's ministry, despite the fact that Jesus certainly isn't impersonal? 2 Peter 1:13 and 2 Corinthians 5:2-3,8- If we are not spirits dwelling in fleshly bodies, why does Paul say that he is in "this tabernacle", and what did Paul mean when he said we groan inside and dwell within our bodies, can be found naked, and can be absent from the body? If these verses are not talking about our spirits, then what is it? Thank you!

At Luke 24:39 it is the resurrected Jesus speaking. He said, "It is I, myself" to explain that he was resurrected because the people were afraid and wondering if he was a spirit. A resurrected person is still the same person, is he not? John 2:19 A resurrection is a recreation of the same body. Same DNA, same thoughts and experience. He was resurrected into a newly built body that was the same body. The only difference would be between a newly created body and a new body would be if and imperfect human were resurrected into perfection. Then any imperfect dna would have to be corrected for perfect health. I'm sorry but I am out of research time today. I'll check back to make sure someone else answers your questions. In the meantime, you'll find much useful information at www.jw.org. It seems that most of your questions have the common theme the definition of the spirit. Here is a link that may provide some answers to your questions: http://wol.jw.org/en/wol/d/r1/lp-e/1200004211

Emily Originally Answered: Jehovah's Witnesses.I don't think it is fair to call these former Jehovah's Witnesses apostates?
There would be no problem JWs calling former members 'apostates' if they made it clear they considered them apostates from the JW religion. On the contrary, JWs believe and state that to leave them is to apostasize from Christianity! There's a world of difference there! I was shocked to read in their own literature these statements about those who are disfellowshipped or who no longer choose to be identified with the JWs: "The condition of those who have gone astray... All such persons are spiritually famished and far removed from Jehovah God, as if in a distant country. They are a part of Satan's world and in slavery to him... Not infrequently does their desire to get ahead in the world lead them to adopt dishonest business practices." "Christian elders and others might visit and help the one who has grown weak and inactive... It is another matter, though, when a person repudiates his being a Christian and disassociates himself. When this rare event occurs, the person is renouncing his standing as a Christian... Or, a person might renounce his place in the Christian [i.e. JW] congregation by ...becoming part of an organization whose objective is contrary to the Bible [i.e. a Christian church]... if the husband is disfellowshipped, his [JW] wife and children will not be comfortable with him conducting a family Bible study or leading in Bible reading and prayer... Should he die while disfellowshipped, arrangements for his funeral may be a problem. His Christian [i.e. JW] relatives may like to have had a talk at the Kingdom Hall... But that would not be fitting." The reason why former JWs are treated like the scum of the earth is to prevent JWs learning the REAL reasons why they left, and - often - the biblical truths at back of it all. To demonize those who disagree with the Society is almost mandatory. It is a form of intimidation and judgmentalism. But, as Jesus said, "In the same way as you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." (Mt 7:1-2)

1. Michael the Archangel never materialized into different bodies. This is no where in scripture its a nonbiblcal teaching. 2. Jesus's body never decayed / never rotted/ never saw corruption Acts 2:31 3. Jesus had a ressurected body of flesh and bones. His blood was left at the cross. Luke 24:36-47, John 20:27-29 4. Those that teach Jesus did not come in the flesh is a deciever and an antichrist 2 John 1:7 5. Jesus is the Only Son of God. God has One literal Son, the angels and believers are adopted sons of God. It is NO where found in scripture that Michael the Archangel is the only son of God. John 1:18 NIV No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known 6. Jesus is NOT Michael. It was the LORD of the old testament that became incarnate. In Zechariah 12:10 The LORD is speaking that they shall look on me the one they have pierced and in Revelation 1:7-8 when Jesus comes again every eye shall see him, also those who pierced him and he is the one who is and who was and is to come the Almighty. Further more in Psalms 102:21-25 the LORD / Jehovah laid the foundations of the earth itself and the heavens by his hands and in Hebrews 1:6-10 the Lord Jesus the Son laid the foundations of the earth itself and the heavens by his hands. The writer of Hebrews 1:10 Quoted Psalms 102:25 and identified Jesus is the LORD of the old testament. It is not written anywhere in scripture that michael laid the foundations of the earth nor the heavens, thus Jesus is not michael as the watchtower claims. Acts 2:31 NIV Seeing what was to come, he spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that he was not abandoned to the realm of the dead, nor did his body see decay. Jesus ressurected Physically he had flesh and bones Luke 24:36-47 NIV While they were still talking about this, Jesus himself stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 37 They were startled and frightened, thinking they saw a ghost. 38 He said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts rise in your minds? 39 Look at my hands and my feet. It is I myself! Touch me and see; a ghost does not have flesh and bones, as you see I have.” 40 When he had said this, he showed them his hands and feet. 41 And while they still did not believe it because of joy and amazement, he asked them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” 42 They gave him a piece of broiled fish, 43 and he took it and ate it in their presence. 44 He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.” 45 Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. 46 He told them, “This is what is written: The Messiah will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, 47 and repentance for the forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. John 20:27-29 NIV Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.” 28 Thomas said to him, “My Lord and my God!” 29 Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” Those that teach Jesus did not come in the flesh is a deciever and an antichrist 2 John 1:7 NIV I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. Zechariah 12:10 NIV “And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son. Revelation 1:7-8 NIV “Look, he is coming with the clouds,” and “every eye will see him, even those who pierced him”; and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.” So shall it be! Amen. 8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” John 1:1 NIV In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:14 NIV The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Their entire Bible is set up to deny Jesus and the Holy Spirit. You will not see them in Heaven OR "Paradise" Earth. Jesus is THE way.Period.

We can minister each other lovingly and according to the Bible but we the final judgment belongs to God. We need to pray for JWs for they are lost.
