That's a bit rough...honestly, I could put in my two cents worth, but then again, anybody could ask the same question about Mormons, or Catholics, or Lutherans. Who is to say who is right and wrong? Not me. God knows everything, God is truth, and he's the one who gives us scriptures and truth. Go to him, ask him in prayer for guidance and truth, he'll answer you as you sincerely seek. "Ask and it shall be given you, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you"
They are many and do change from time to time.
Some of their beliefs are actually scriptural but are not applied correctly (scripturally)
Here are a few of their false beliefs.
They have their own (corrupted to fit their beliefs) bible translation.
the new world translation nwt
No blood transfusions allowed
no military service allowed
no allegiance to world governments
They are the only true church of Jehovah God. (all cults make this proclamation)
Diety of Christ ( say he is a created god who became michael the arch angel after resurrection) He was a perfect sinless man no more no less
Jesus atonement was only for sins of Adam
Salvation by faith (they say works required)
Prayer directed to Christ, (pray only to Jehovah)
Salvation available to all . ( only 144000 get salvation and they have been chosen)
They BELIEVE and TEACH :
Salvation is ONLY available through faith and works – only through their church
Their corrupted bible translation is the only acceptable version
That Jesus was only a perfect man and NOT God and that He is now Michael the arch angel
Jesus atonement was only for the sins of Adam not for us
That only 144000 will enter the kingdom of God and they have already been chosen so we have NO chance of redemption.
They have predicted (falsely) the return of Christ at least six times. 1914, 1918, 1920, 1925, 1941, and 1975. And now are “watching the signs) and not currently setting a date.
There are many more thing about this cult that you can find by looking up their beliefs for your self. Of course-- why would anyone be interested in a cult that denies all the major points of the Bible.
What is the value of a religion that has no chance of salvation, that denies the diety of Christ, that denies the Holy Spirit (which is the only unforgiveable sin) and that keeps making changes, contrary to the bible and The Holy Spirit that NEVER change
