Jehovah’s Witnesses Are Wrong: 8. God was alone when He created all things

In this series we will be giving 25 reasons why the Jehovah’s Witnesses have their Christology and Trinitarian theology wrong. We will make our case right from the Scriptures:

8. God created all things alone.

Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, and the one who formed you from the womb, “I, the LORD, am the maker of all things, Stretching out the heavens by Myself And spreading out the earth all alone” (Is 44:24).

[Y]et for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him (1 Cor 8:6).

…His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world (Heb 1:2).

The only way Jehovah created the heavens by Himself, all alone is if Jesus is Jehovah, because clearly Christ made all things.

All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being (John 1:3).

The above verse also conclusively shows that Christ is uncreated, because otherwise He would have had to make Himself.
