The doctrine of the Watchtower Society claims that Jesus is the Archangel Michael, is titled "God", was also addressed by unbelieving Thomas with the title "God", and is the second highest in the universe. The Supreme is the Jehovah God, who deserves the only true worship.
The Mosaic law (Exodus 20,3 Thou shalt have no other gods beside me) forbids not only the people of God, but all that calls itself Christian, to have another god beside God. This does not only concern beings like the Catholic heavenly goddess Mary or an angelic spirit creature that resides in the theology of Jehovah's Witnesses instead of Jesus, but it concerns much more.
Whoever is more or just as intensively dependent on his money, his vacation, his hobby, his work as he is on his God, is already in danger of breaking this Mosaic commandment. God's claim, which is elevated in the Mosaic Law, concerns everything that is suitable for appropriating man's faith and thinking.
The Watchtower Society emphasizes again and again and with unrelenting diligence that Jesus is not God, the Almighty, but only a second row God. With this and with the wrong translation of John (In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was the Word – altered to – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was ein God) the religion of Jehovah's Witnesses consists of a two-god system. For this "sub-god" Jesus plays an indispensable role in the Witness Jehovah's religion.
As far as Jehovah's Witnesses always say that Jesus is not a God at all, but only an angel, the fact remains, however, that Jesus, according to their teaching, has advanced to the second highest and has thus become a God. For Jehovah's Witnesses also teach that there are many gods, but that only one may be worshipped. Satan, for example, is for them the God of this bad system. But if Jesus is the second highest in the universe, he must be a God. And as an indispensable task performer, this second God plays various important roles in their religious system.

The primitive but courageous attempt to change the Bible by simply inserting the indefinite article has, after all, led several million people to break the first commandment on behalf of their mistress, the Watchtower Society. While sounding outward, "We keep to the Bible," they even believe themselves that they have not broken any law of the Bible. But they are trampling on the first commandment. They have 2 gods, of which they worship only one, they only value the other, but they have both. The second God is indispensable in their religion and represents the living break of the law.
The secret of the Watchtower doctrine is exactly this, to present Jesus as someone who was rightly executed. For by making Himself God (forgiveness of sins, eternal existence), which was the reason for His killing, Jesus, according to the Jehovah's Witnesses, would have been another God the greatest lawbreaker of all time. But Jesus could only make himself God by declaring Himself the Almighty. Only this variant is compatible with the Mosaic Law (Ex 20:3 "You shall have no other gods besides me")!
But because we have fortunately learned from the mouth of Jesus that no icing on the cake will be taken away from the law until he returns, we can and must assume that Jesus did not make himself a second God in the universe, but clearly brought the message that the Father shows himself in him.
Because Satan knows that without the eradication of the name Jesus he cannot destroy anyone, he has come up with a name for God that cannot be surpassed in its absurdity and ungodliness. Catholic monks have created this name and put it into the world. This name was never found in the original scriptures, but was only derived from a salad of letters. This letter salad was created by combining the tetragram JHWH with the vowels of the word "adonai".
The sole purpose of this mixture of names, however, was to signal to the reader not to accidentally read out JHWH, as this is still forbidden among Jews today.
This prohibition, which is also not to be found in this form in the law and therefore is to be evaluated as rabbinical exaggeration, led then finally to the most brazen of all name aberrations.

To make the measure of blasphemy full, the Watchtower Society takes away characteristics of Jesus Christ and transfers them to the Watchtower God of Art, Jehovah. The Watchtower Society regularly practices this process of transferring the attributes of Jesus to the Jehovah of the Watchtower Society. A second example of this Jesus-deletion tactic can be found on the page: "How the Watchtower Twists the Truth" The entire theology of the Jehovah worshippers is nothing other than a substitute religion directed against Jesus, which creepingly aims at the process of making Jesus appear to man as unimportant and irrelevant. The whole thing is a new edition of what has been going on in the Catholic Church with the Mother of God for some time.
One can well imagine the joy of the adversary: We only need to make a single God out of the Father and a single God out of the Son. And already we have brought vast numbers of people to break the first and most important commandment.
