Beliefs

Jehovah's Witnesses' theology has numerous serious errors.

God

JWs deny the Trinity.

A less important point - Jehovah's Witnesses claim God's only true and correct name is "Jehovah" - which actually doesn't appear in the Bible. It comes from adding the vowels from "Adonai" (Hebrew for "Lord") to "YHWH." This was first done in AD1270 by a Roman Catholic monk (thanks, Raymundus) - apparently JW's own "Aid" book admits this on pages 884 & 885.

Jesus Christ

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Jesus Christ is the Archangel Michael, and that he is the first being created by God. They believe He was not bodily resurrected, and that He returned invisibly to Earth in 1914.

The Holy Spirit

JWs believe that the Holy Spirit is just a force, like electricity.

Salvation

They believe that salvation is through good works and by being a Jehovah's Witness. JWs do not have an accurate concept of sin.

Bible

The Watchtower teaches that the Bible is not properly understandable without the Watchtower's materials. According to them their own New World Translation (NWT) Bible is the only true version. See also the Quotes page regarding the false Bible.
