    What is the difference between counterfeit Christianity and Jehovah's Witness the true Christians? LOTS

    Here is a sample: http://www.counterfeitchristians.info/

    No difference. "Jehovah's Witnesses" is short for "Christian Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses". Jehovah's Witnesses believed Jesus was sent to save mankind so he is our saviour. But the ultimate saviour would be Jehovah God not Jesus. John 3:16; 17:3 says:

    (John 3:16) “For God [Jehovah] loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son [Jesus], in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.

    (John 17:3) This means everlasting life, their taking in knowledge of you [Jehovah], the only true God [Jehovah], and of the one whom you sent forth, Jesus Christ.

    In short, if Jehovah God didn't send Jesus, he will not come to be our saviour.

    Isaiah 43:10-11 says: “YOU are my witnesses,” is the utterance of Jehovah, “even my servant whom I have chosen, in order that YOU may know and have faith in me, and that YOU may understand that I am the same One. Before me there was no God formed, and after me there continued to be none. 11 I—I am Jehovah, and besides me there is no savior.

    Yes we do. The difference between us and main stream Christians is the rejection of the trinity and other pagan based teachings. We hold to what the Bible says. There is one true God, Jehovah(John 17:3).

    The main difference between JWs and mainstream Christendom is that JWs reject the Trinity. This isn't hard since the doctrine of the Trinity is not explicitly taught or described in the Bible.

    So JWs believe that Jesus was the Messiah, that he had a pre-human existence, that he is the Son of God, and he is the Savior, etc.

    Yes of course, salvations comes through Christ, Jesus laid down his life so that we could all be saved. Jehovah is the source in that he gave his son so that we may have life. John 3:16

    It is a bit like Moses, he was called in the OT the salvation of Israel, but the source was from God!

    Absolutely yes we do believe Jesus Christ is our saviour.

    JW's are christians, but because we don't believe in the false doctrine of the trinity many people twist that into saying we don't believe in Jesus Christ.

    Of course we believe he is our Savior. The Bible calls him the Savior, and we believe in the Bible.

    The main difference in "Christianity" and Jehovah's Witnesses is that we believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, but others believe he is "God the Son".

    The words "Son of God" are in the Bible.

    The words "God the Son" aren't.

    Again, we believe the Bible.

    As one of Jehovah's Witnesses I can truly say that we believe that Jesus Christ is the Messiah. So, yes, we do believe he is our Savior. For, without him, Jehovah won't hear our prayers as we are to pray in Christ's name.

    Absolutely yes. Jehovah's Witnesses do believe in Jesus Christ is our Savior.

    Here are some beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses that set them apart as different from other religions:

    (1) Bible: Jehovah’s Witnesses believe that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God, and instead of adhering to a creed based on human tradition, they hold to the Bible as the standard for all their beliefs.

    (2) God: They worship Jehovah as the only true God and freely speak to others about him and his loving purposes toward mankind. Anyone who publicly witnesses about Jehovah is usually identified as belonging to the one group—“Jehovah’s Witnesses.”

    (3) Jesus Christ: They believe, not that Jesus Christ is part of a Trinity, but that, as the Bible says, he is the Son of God, the first of God’s creations; that he had a prehuman existence and that his life was transferred from heaven to the womb of a virgin, Mary; that his perfect human life laid down in sacrifice makes possible salvation to eternal life for those who exercise faith; that Christ is actively ruling as King, with God-given authority over all the earth since 1914.

    (4) God’s Kingdom: They believe that God’s Kingdom is the only hope for mankind; that it is a real government; that it will soon destroy the present wicked system of things, including all human governments, and that it will produce a new system in which righteousness will prevail.

    (5) Heavenly life: They believe that 144,000 spirit-anointed Christians will share with Christ in his heavenly Kingdom, ruling as kings with him. They do not believe that heaven is the reward for everyone who is “good.”

    (6) The earth: They believe that God’s original purpose for the earth will be fulfilled; that the earth will be completely populated by worshipers of Jehovah and that these will be able to enjoy eternal life in human perfection; that even the dead will be raised to an opportunity to share in these blessings.

    (7) Death: They believe that the dead are conscious of absolutely nothing; that they are experiencing neither pain nor pleasure in some spirit realm; that they do not exist except in God’s memory, so hope for their future life lies in a resurrection from the dead.

    (8) Last days: They believe that we are living now, since 1914, in the last days of this wicked system of things; that some who saw the events of 1914 will also see the complete destruction of the present wicked world; that lovers of righteousness will survive into a cleansed earth.

    (9) Separate from the world: They earnestly endeavor to be no part of the world, as Jesus said would be true of his followers. They show genuine Christian love for their neighbors, but they do not share in the politics or the wars of any nation. They provide for the material needs of their families but shun the world’s avid pursuit of material things and personal fame and its excessive indulgence in pleasure.

    (10) Apply Bible counsel: They believe that it is important to apply the counsel of God’s Word in everyday life now—at home, in school, in business, in their congregation. Regardless of a person’s past way of life, he may become one of Jehovah’s Witnesses if he abandons practices condemned by God’s Word and applies its godly counsel. But if anyone thereafter makes a practice of adultery, fornication, homosexuality, drug abuse, drunkenness, lying, or stealing, he will be disfellowshipped from the organization.

    (The above list briefly states some outstanding beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses but by no means all the points on which their beliefs are different from those of other groups.)
