Jehovah's Witnesses Are Not Christians

MYTH
The Jehovah's Witnesses movement is Christian

The Jehovah's Witnesses movement is not Christian. Jehovah's Witnesses deny the Trinity [1], the deity of Christ [2], Christ's physical resurrection [3], the personhood of the Holy Spirit, and salvation from sin by grace through faith. Jehovah's Witnesses add to God's Word, take Scripture out of context, read the Bible based on their false theological presuppositions, and label verses as figurative when the verses contradict the JW doctrines. Jehovah's Witnesses deny Hell [4], falsely teaching annihilationism instead [5], and refuse blood transfusions (even when lives are in danger), and claim that Christ died on a stake rather than a cross. They say that Jesus was Michael the Archangel. JW's refuse to celebrate Christsmas (Jesus' birth), Easter (Jesus' resurrection), birthdays, and other holidays. They don't salute the flag or say the Pledge of Allegiance. Jehovah's Witnesses are not witnessing to Yahweh. The Watchtower Society incorrectly predicted that the end would occur in 1925, and again in 1975. JW's, like Mormons, are incorrect in their allegations of corruption of the Bible. JW's falsely claim that the soul does not survive death. [6] JW's oftentimes wrongly discourage independent thinking.
