4Isa 49:15-16.

6You Can Live Forever in Paradise on Earth (New York: Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York, 1982), 127.

7The Watchtower, February 1, 1991, 17. Strangely enough, while teaching that salvation is a reward for obe-dience, the Watchtower does, at the same time, unashamedly declare that it is a “free gift.” What this means is that the sacrifice of Christ has wiped away the sin inherited from Adam, and man has now been given the chance to work his way toward salvation. Without this “gift” (chance), there would be no hope of salvation.

8Rom 5:5-10.

9Eph 2:8-10. Jehovah’s Witnesses maintain that faith alone is not enough–works are also needed. James 2:14-26 is often given as scriptural support for this position. However, as Paul plainly declares in the second chapter of Ephesians, salvation is not by works but by grace through faith. Works are the result of a salvation experience, not a condition for receiving that salvation. Good works are necessary, not as a prerequisite to salvation, but as evi-dence of genuine faith.

25The Watchtower, August 15, 1983, 23. It is note-worthy that in this article the average Jehovah’s Witnesses (who are not members of the “heavenly class” and therefore not branches of the Vine) are told that they must “prove themselves to be Christ’s disciples,” and also “keep bearing much fruit.” Christ Himself, however, states that “apart from me you can do nothing” (John 15:5).
