Does Matthew 11:11 teach that John the Baptist won’t be in the Heavenly Kingdom?

Before we delve into Matthew 11:11, let’s briefly go over the Watchtower’s two-class theology.  They teach that all Jehovah’s Witnesses will be eternally separated into two metaphysically distinct locations: heaven or earth.  The anointed 144,000 of Revelation 7 will rule and reign with Christ in heaven while the remaining “great crowd” live on paradise earth. … More Does Matthew 11:11 teach that John the Baptist won’t be in the Heavenly Kingdom?

Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the Kingdom of Heaven

The focus of this article will deal with the Watchtower’s belief that none of the saints mentioned in the Hebrew Scriptures … More Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the Kingdom of Heaven

Debate is posted! Proposition: “All New Covenant Christians Will Live Forever in Heaven with Christ.”

I can’t tell you how excited I am to have been given this opportunity to debate one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in audible format.  To be honest, I don’t think this has ever happened in history whereby such a debate was recorded and made available.  JW’s are usually quite shy to ever give a second thought … More Debate is posted!

John 14:1-3 – The Great Crowd inherits the abodes in heaven? (Jehovah’s Witness issue)

In THIS VIDEO I go through a series of cross references found in the New World Translation to show that the Great Crowd inherits the abodes that are supposedly in heaven.  This argument can be very simply demonstrated by following the cross references beginning in John 14:2, which takes you to Luke 16:9 and then to Matthew 25:34. … More John 14:1-3 – The Great Crowd inherits the abodes in heaven?
