What are the differences between Christianity and Jehovah Witnesses? One of the most glaring differences between Christianity and the Jehovah Witnesses is that Jesus is either God and has always existed or He was a created being and thus, not fully God.

What they believe and what Christians believe are crucial because if you don’t have the right Jesus, you’ve got the wrong Savior, meaning no Savior at all.

There is also information relevant to JWs in my Scripture Workbook, including a chapter detailing some of their unique beliefs.

This was due to the failure of a prophecy by them that He was to return visibly in 1914 (updated once from 1874! When Jesus did not show up on their date, they were forced to explain away the failure.

They did this by seizing on a secondary meaning of one Greek word used in conjunction with Christ’s coming again. This particular Greek word was used in two scriptures, 2 Thessalonians 2:8 and 1 Thessalonians . 2 Thessalonians 2:8 reads in the New American Stan­dard Version, “And then that lawless one will be revealed whom the Lord will slay with the breath of His mouth and bring to an end by the appearance of His coming.” In a reliable Bible version such as the one quoted, it is very clear that Christ will make an “appearance” which we will all see with our own eyes at “His coming.” Not so with the deliberately altered version of the Jehovah’s Witnesses which reads, “Then indeed, the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will do away with by the spirit of his mouth and bring to nothing by the manifestation of his presence” (New World Translation).

Instructions regarding activities and acceptable behavior are disseminated through The Watchtower magazine and other official publications, and at conventions and congregation meetings.

Jehovah's Witnesses endeavor to remain "separate from the world", Members are expected to participate regularly in evangelizing work and attend all congregation meetings, as well as regular large-scale conventions, which are highly structured and based on material from Watch Tower Society publications.
