Rob Bowman On Heart Of The Matter Tonight

Shawn McCraney

Shawn McCraney likening the Trinity to man-made corporate constructs like, accountability, cheese spread, elevator music and strip malls.

Rob Bowman of the Institute For Religious Research met with Shawn McCraney yesterday and talked about the Trinity for four hours. Shawn has invited Rob to be on his show (Heart of the Matter) tonight to ask Rob more questions. The shows streams live here at 8PM MST.

For those of you who may be unfamiliar with the significance of tonight’s show, Shawn is a former Mormon who has recently made some anti-Trinitarian comments on his show. Contrary to Shawn’s own claims, those statements are Modalistic in nature.

For a more detailed timeline of what happened and what was said when, read this summation by Fred Anson at Beggar’s Bread.

Please be in pray for this show and for Shawn in particular. Many Christians, both former Mormons and non-former Mormons, have benefited from his show and ministry. There is a tremendous possibility here for harm or help.

The Deity Of Christ With A Jehovah’s Witness Elder Part 2

The Image of the Invisible God.

The Image of the Invisible God.

This is part two from yesterday’s conversation. We were talking about whether or not Jesus is the same substance as the Father.

We’ve talked about this before and what my Witness friend does not understand is that the Watchtower does not teach that Jesus is the same nature as the Father. Of course I can’t explain that yet because he does not know what I know about Watchtower teachings. This forces me to pay close attention to what he says so that I can still make my point without having to show him Watchtower literature to prove it.

KW: I don’t understand how you can say that though. When I say “nature,” I’m talking about God’s eternal nature. All three of us agree that Jehovah is eternal.

JW1: Yes.

JW: But I don’t think you guys believe that the Son, Jesus, is eternal.

JW2: He has not always existed.

KW: If He has not always existed, He is not eternal, therefore He cannot be the same “stuff” that the Father is because the Father is eternal. That would mean they are not the same nature. Read More …

Truth Be Told On The Big Screen In Austin, Texas


TRUTH BE TOLD lifts the veil on the seemingly benign Jehovah’s Witnesses religion to expose a profit-driven, isolationist culture characterized by fear, totalitarian corporate leadership, intellectual & spiritual intimidation, suspension of critical thinking, failed prophecies, doctrinal inconsistency and improper handling of physical and sexual abuse allegations within the church. See former Jehovah’s Witnesses candidly discuss growing up inside the religion. They reveal experiences including the effects of proselytizing door-to-door, shunning non-observant family and friends, suffering the discouragement of pursuing dreams like gaining a higher education, missing other societal holidays and customs.
