    Christians worship Christ; JW's do not!

    Therefore, JW's are NOT Christian.

    I see "No True Scotsman", "Tautology", and "Begging the Question" logical fallacies in you argument.

    Per the lexicons, the term 'Christian' was first coined in the NT to represent worshipers of Jesus Christ.

    Holding to this original definition makes a mockery out of JW's who wish to claim the 'Christian' title and then re-define what it means...

    Nope.

    They were those proclaiming Jesus was the Christ.

    Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

    Christians are supposed to worship the Lord God and serve him only as their heavenly Father recognizing that Jesus Christ is not God, but the son of God.

    According to Acts 11:21, they were called Christians because they believed and turned unto the Lord.

    Acts 11:21
    21 And the hand of the Lord was with them: and a great number believed, and turned unto the Lord.


    Nothing in the passage states that they were called Christians because they "worshiped" Jesus.

    It's dangerous to make statements about somebody or some thing that you don't know anything about. You wind up with egg on your face.

    We "worship" Christ, just not as God. "Worship" is relative. It merely means to give honor or respect to. We worship a court judge as a high official, as well as we do a president or a governor. We worship Jesus as the Son of God, worthy of high praise and honor. The only One we worship as God Almighty is Jehovah,
    the Father
    . So you are very WRONG about your accusation.

    Do you worship three Gods? We only worship one. Jehovah.

    You must be Trinitarian, as you quoted an English Trinitarian rendering...

    Both God The Son, and God The Father, claim that each other is God!

    The 'Hand of the Lord' is The Holy Spirit to begin with!

    Thanks for proving that Christians are also Trinitarian!
