Comparison Of Jehovah's Witnesses And The Mormons

Satisfactory Essays
I believe that the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Mormons theologies; that Jesus was either created (Jehovah’s Witnesses) or that Jesus was born by a father and a mother (Mormons) are good examples why it is so important to read text in the context of the surrounding scriptures. Colossians 1:15, reads: “Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature”. (KJV) The Greek word for “image” is Eikon which means a “prototype” (the original form from which it is drawn). (Spiros Zodhiates 1991, p.1475) When you look in a mirror you see an image (Eikon) of yourself in the mirror. In the same way if the invisible Father God looked into the mirror, and you could see his Image, you would see Jesus a direct image of the original form.
