What Do Jehovah’s Witnesses Believe? Is It Christian?

What should you question the JW’s on when they come knocking? Well here is a collection of JW beliefs and teachings, and no, they are NOT Christian!

Each of the six creative days of God in Genesis 1, was 7000 years long.
Therefore, Man was created toward the end of 42,000 years of earth’s
preparation, Let God be True, p. 168.

The universe is billions of years old; Your will Be Done on Earth, p. 43.

It is possible to lose your salvation, Reasoning from the Scriptures, 1985, p.
358-359.

The Cross is a pagan symbol and should not be used, Reasoning from the
Scriptures, 1985, p. 90-92.

There is one God in one person, Make Sure of All Things, p 188.

The Holy Spirit is a force, not alive, Reasoning from the Scriptures, 1985, pp. 406-407.

Jesus was Michael the archangel who became a man, The Watchtower, May 15,
1963, p. 307; The New World, 284.

Jesus did not rise from the dead in his physical body, Awake! July 22, 1973, p. 4.
Jesus was born again, The Watchtower, Nov. 15, 1954, p. 682.

Jesus did not die on a cross but a stake, Reasoning from the Scriptures, 1985,
p. 89-90.

They claim to be the only channel of God’s truth, The Watchtower, Feb. 15,
1981, p. 19.

The soul ceases to exist after death, Let God be True, p. 59, 60, 67.

Only the 144,000 Jehovah’s Witness are born again. Reasoning from the
Scriptures, 1985, p. 76.; Watchtower 11/15/54, p. 681.

Only the 144,000 may take communion.

Salvation is by faith and what you do, Studies in the Scriptures, Vol. 1, p.
150,152.

Satan was entrusted with the obligation and charged with the duty of
overseeing the creation of the earth, Children, p. 55

Jesus was only a perfect man, not God in flesh, Reasoning from the Scriptures,
1985, p. 306.

There are much more heresies that I did not indicate. When a JW comes to your door, we as Christians are to give them the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Even though they are persistent, we as Christians still need to remember they are lost, souls. They are also made in the image of God, so please be respectful but direct at the same time.

God Bless
