Question for Jehovah's Witnesses: Sola Scripture?

Jehovah's Witnesses are 'encouraged' to study the publications of the Watch Tower Society. It's been observed at some meetings where the Witnesses study the Watchtower magazine, that many Witnesses do not actually have a Bible open in their hand, but rather have a Watchtower magazine in one hand and a sheet with decontexualised scripture references printed in the other.

One Jehovah's Witness apologist made the following comment in reference to the Watch Tower Society publication "Keep Yourself in God's Love";
So we can clearly see-and my opponent agrees [2]-that it is important to live our lives in a Christian way. The book's purpose is to help us to do that.

As Christian I was under the impression that the Bible was the only book needed to help us live our lives in a "Christian way".

Hence my question for Jehovah's Witnesses; is the Bible enough for you to know how to love and serve Jehovah?


  1. Boy am I in luck, this brother already answered your question in detail:

  2. For the benefit or readers, the article linked to suggests that listening to pastors and using concordances and Bible dictionaries equates to the Jehovah's Witnesses using Watch Tower literature.

    However, the Governing Body claims their utterances as recorded in the literature is from Jehovah himself, and it alone is God's approved "spiritual food".

    I've never seen such a claim in any Christian literature.
