What is the difference between Jehovas witnessess and christians?
Christians believe that Jesus has always been God's King, and that he will return - we look forward to the new heaven and new earth as described in the Bible - but he has not returned yet. The Bible makes it clear that Jesus' return will be an event that all people will see, but which none can know with certainty when it will happen - only God the Father knows.
Jehovah Witnesses believe you have to do something to get to Heaven. Christians believe Christ has done it all. In other words, His death on the cross fufilled the old testament requirements of a spotless lamb dying for the sins of man except he paid it once and for all. Lambs were only good for a year.....The Lamb of God paid it for eternity. The proof that God accepted it was the fact that he raised Him from the dead.
While their thoughts differ from my own, they too, believe that Jesus is the resurected Son of God. THAT belief is what 'defines' Christians.
I will not speak against them.
