Sending you a slice pic of what they wrote and believe as their doctrine will not give you a clear picture of why Jehovah witness do not worship nor regard Jesus Christ as GOD. You have to read the whole book itself to get the exact picture of where they STAND regarding the DIVINITY of Jesus Christ.
There are two books I will like you to buy and read. Both books are very authoritative and writting by Jehovahs Witness themselves.
The names of the books are: ''You Can Live Forever in Paradise on Earth'', and ''Revelation; Its Grand Climax at Hand!''.
Both are very old books and very interesting to read, all written in the 80s.

Hmm... Av heard u

My issues with jehovah's witness are

1 They dont like praying with other christains
2 They invite you to their programs but will not come for yours when you invite them
3 They dont usually allow members to marry christains frm other denominations

I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and he died for our sins and i try as much as i can to emulate him. Now why will a fellow christain do all the above to me cos i dont worship in the same place as him? Is it not annoying? Jesus told his disciples that he who is not against us is with us. So why dont jwits see other christains as part of them 'us' just like Jesus. In heaven there will only be saints, but there will be no denomination no catholic, anglican, winners, reedem or christ embassy so why cant we be more united?

I also have a problem with jwits not accepting blood transfusion. They would rather die than accept it. Makes no sense to me.

I love awake magazine though and one of my best friend is jwits. He is selfless

Do not get me wrong am not prejudice to Jehovah's Witness group. On the contrary, I like their sense of seriousness and modesty. Their ''Awake Magazine'' is one of my favorite magazines; very informative and colorful. I still read them to this day.
The only thing that spoil the show is their doctrine about the Divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ. They believe Jesus is of equal status with Arch Angels in heaven.
Arch angel, no arch angels.

It is written all over their literatures. To Jehovah witness, Jesus Christ is not GOD. This belief is a massive contradiction to John1:1 which states that:
''In the beginning was the Word , and the Word was with GOD and the word was GOD.''
They believe jesus is a god, but like he told mary, they believe he has a god that is superior to him, which is God almighty, the father!.
2. ''He was in the beginning with GOD.
You can't be with someone and still be that same person.

]All things were made through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was made that has been made.''
The term ''Word'' from the verse above is refering to Jesus Christ. And He (Jesus Christ) was in existence before the creation of heaven and earth. He was with GOD from the very beginnging quote And He was GOD. All created objects in heaven (including all the angels big and small) and earth were made through him. Without Him, not one thing was made.
If the Jehovah Witness group hold the believe that Jesus Christ is not GOD but a majestic being, created just like Arch Micheal, how come the Bible categorically recognizes Jesus Christ as GOD and that all things both in heaven and earth were made through him in John1:1-3?
God has no beggining, all other things where created through jesus, he was Gods master worker . Prov 8 : 22- 31.
Jesus has always remained subjected to the father, the almighty God, in heaven or on earth, and it was not a position he wished to grabe but has always remained loyal, despite being in the same nature with God.

1 They dont like praying with other christains
They will pray with you if they know your heart condition is geared towards that prayer, claiming Christian does not mean you follow Christ teachings.
2 They invite you to their programs but will not come for yours when you invite them
Coming to their programs is a personal decision, if you feel cus they did not come to urs then you will not go to theirs, then you have added sentiments to the decision, and you dnt worship God cus of sentiments.
3 They dont usually allow members to marry christains frm other denominations.
"dnt usuually allow" ? Bro its either they allow or they dnt.

I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and he died for our sins and i try as much as i can to emulate him.

Do you remember the words :
"Not everyone saying to me lord! Lord!
And the parable about the harvest!
By their fruits you shall know them, and jehovahs witnesses use such fruitage to determine who is serving God or not, expecially among its members, talk less of other denominations.

I also have a problem with jwits not accepting blood transfusion. They would rather die than accept it. Makes no sense to me.
"He who gives his life for my sake will have it back".
There are specific instructions as to the use of blood. To be obedient is better than sacrifice.
I prefer to live everlasting in a peaceful new world than to break that law and extend my life in this world full of strive and pain. That is what I call "faith!"

I love awake magazine though and one of my best friend is jwits. He is selfless
That magazine is the second most published magazine in the world, it is done whorely by voluntary contributions and has never missed an issue since inception. You can always support that work if you want to.

I find the number 7 on that list a gross slap! How can one not pledge his/her allegiance to his/her country? If you ask me, I believe the JW should come together and get a country of their own, saying they don't salute the flag or pledge allegiance to their country is showing gross disrespect!.

I WITNESS JEHOVAH but am not a member.
I LOVE them so much because,
---Of all the CHRISTAIN denominations....
They are the MOST Enlightened, Educated, Exposed.
It is usually difficult to SPOT the Illiterates among them.

They train their KIDS to be resourceful in future
They are good at PUBLIC SPEAKING.
They dress modest.
They rarely give in, to the changes of the new age.

They study the BIBLE more than any other denomination.

Above all they have the BEST EVANGELISM network, involving both the rich and the poor. (youngest and oldest)
Their CLERGYMEN talk cautiously, unlike many others who talk back at the congregation carelessly.
Never MONEY driven nor conscious.

I always entertained them right from my CHILDHOOD and I have learnt a lot.
I just wish I can worship GOD, the way they do.
MOST times I feel ashamed as a christain when I see them.
I hope to pay them a visit Sasoonest. Satan comes in form of Angel of light, jst be careful not all that glitters is gold.

I Love them.

Upon the thousand denominations of Christianity we have today, I love the JWs the most. In spite of my busy schedule, I always create time to discuss with them.

If I ever become a theist, I will be a JW grin

I remember travelling to england and we had this youth week in reedemed so we went to evangelize in the streets knocking doors also, until we came to a white mans house, he recieved all of us into his living room, gave us water and told us to preach, eventually he started talking too and we got to find out he was a JW pastor (if i recall right), he gave us a bible too. Je hova witness are nice people but what do you people believe that is different from the mainstream christian, that is what i need to know?

Almost all members of Jehovah's Witnesses group I've come across are fantastic people. I don't know about their doctrine but I prefer them to the obstructive modern day money mongers parading themselves as religious groups. They don't hate. They don't condemn and they are good mixers.
