  • According to the Jehovah Witnesses, there is one God, and since 1931, they have insisted that he be called "Jehovah," a corruption in the pronunciation of the Hebrew Yahweh which occurred about the third century BC which was carried into the King James Bible's translation of Yahweh in Exodus 6:3. The Jehovah Witnesses say that Jesus is God's Son, but is inferior to God. They condemn the Trinity as pagan idolatry and accordingly deny Christ's divinity. The Jehovah Witnesses founder, Charles Taze Russell even claimed that the Trinity was the idea of Satan! http://www.catholicherald.com/saunders/03ws/ws030925.htm
  • Contrary to what the first answer says, Jehovah's Witnesses do believe in the "divinity" of Jesus. They just don't believe that he is the same "being" as the Father. The question itself is what is called a "strawman" because they don't deny Jesus' divinity. The statement that they insisted on calling God "Jehovah" since 1931 is completely not true. Charles Russell and the International Bible Students used the name "Jehovah" well before 1931. I think the person in the first answer meant that they called themselves "Jehovah's Witnesses" since then. The name "Jehovah" is not a corruption of the Hebrew "Yahweh" but is actually a more correct "translation" of the Hebrew divine name "YHWH". There are plenty of resources available today that show this. In the future, ask the source instead of people who think they know when it's obvious that they do not.
    • Gone!
      It is certainly not a "more correct" translation. Any scholar will say the same. But... I don't think God will hold it against you. Yahweh, or Jehovah... there is one God. And the Word was with God and the Word was God... Jesus Christ. The Logos of God. So if you do believe Jesus is divine, but not God... how many gods do you have? There is only one true God.
  • Pure agents of the antichrist. My 2 cents.
  • because each religion has it's own set of beliefs and Jehovah's Witnesses are no different.
  • Honestly now, is it so hard to have a different opinion? Jeeze...
  • they do, they just don't believe in the trinity
  • Because they don't believe in confessing the name of Jesus before men. They are too concerned with the name Jehovah. Matthew 10:32 "Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in Heaven."
  • From what I know, they believe Jesus is the Archangel Michael. So when Hebrews 1:5 says For to which of the angels did God ever say? "You are my son; today I have become your Father." Their answer is Michael. 7. In speaking of the angels he says, “He makes his angels spirits, and his servants flames of fire.” 8 But about the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a sceptre of justice will be the sceptre of your kingdom. 9 You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy To which of the angels did God ever say, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet?" And again their answer to this would be Michael. 14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? There answer would be NO, Michael the angel is the Son Of God. Daniel 10:13 tells us that Michael is ONE of the Princes, plural, he is not the only one. They say Jesus is an angel because he has a voice of one, does that mean God is a hen, because he describes himself as one? NO.
