Jehovah Witness Beliefs

Many people have at least met a Jehovah Witnesses because the Jehovah Witness knocked on their door. The Churches that these people go to are called Kingdom Hall. The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society print the literature that the Jehovah Witnesses read and distribute. Charles Russell established the church in 1879. Russell died in 1916 and was replaced by the 2nd president, Joseph F Rutherford. In the early stages the church was also known as the "International Bible Students Association. The Jehovah Witnesses that I have met are very sincere and good honest people. Unfortunately a person can be very sincere and still be wrong. What are Jehovah Witness beliefs? Is the Watchtower a false prophet? Do Jehovah Witnesses teach another gospel and another Jesus than that which is found in our bible? Are Jehovah Witnesses Christian?

Sadly they do not teach the truth and they have proven to be false prophets. However this does not mean that you should chase their people away from your door or be disrespectful to them.They are people whom the Lord loves and he wants them to hear the truth. We need to remember that the Jehovah Witness is not our enemy. They are instead the one who is deceived by our enemy.

Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. (NAS)

1 Pet 3:15 but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give
