The two are intertwined. If Jesus is not God? Why pray to Jesus then? Did you JW's know that the WTS once taught that it was ok to worship Jesus? Then they changed this doctrine and tried to hide this fact. Interesting little tid bit.
what did Jesus say, when he gave the model prayer? you can find it at Matthew chapter six verse nine.
(Matthew 6:9-15) . . .“you must pray, then, this way: “‘Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth. Give us today our bread for this day; and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And do not bring us into temptation, but deliver us from the wicked one.’
what is the name of the Father that it should be sanctified? Pslam 83:18, states,
(Psalm 83:18) . . .That people may know that you, whose name is Jehovah, You alone are the Most High over all the earth.
Did Christ say, let my name be sanctified, no he said, our fathers name should be , yes that is correct our Father, for Christ was a created being.! Did Christ say let my will be done, no he said let the fathers will be done. This verse once again shows the utter folly of the trinity, for if it is true, Christ would have been praying to himself! the trinitartians would now have us believe that Christ created himself, resurrected himself and now prays to himself! I that is not utter folly than i don't know what is.
there are many belief's the witnesses once held, but since we have found them to be false we have discarded them, can the same be said of those who cling to their ancient dogmas borrowed from the Greeks, i dont think so, read it and weep you trinitarians, read it and weep! your traditions have made the word of god invalid!
