Jesus is God's son. He is the great mediator between us and God. No unclean thing can enter into the prescense of God. Jesus's atonement made it possibly that we might be saved through His grace through repentance on His name, and become clean. He is a member of the God head, and the father of our salvation. Not sure what Jehovah witness's take on that is however.
Jehovahs witnesses do NOT believe in Jesus.They believe only in God and The Holy Spirit.I believe that Jesus is Gods son and that he died on the cross to pay for our sins,And I believe in the holy spirit.I believe these things because I am pennecostal Christian.Jehovahs witness only believe in god and that there will be a limit on the number of people that can get into heaven.I believe as a Christian that when your saved and ask the holy spirit into your heart that you will be saved and go to heaven if the rapture(another story) happens while your alive or when you pass away.
I am not a Jehovah's Witness but my understanding is that they believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he is the Messiah. I myself have a little difficulty understanding how someone can be their own father. If the Bible says that Jesus Christ is the Son of God then how can he also be God? How can Mary be the mother of the being that impregnated her? The concept of the Trinity didn't even enter Christian Theology until the third century A. D.

No , he is a messenger of God with extraordinary powers that help him to make people believe him that he is sent from God to deliver a message and not an ordinary person who is lying or pretending to be a messenger. He used to eat , didn't he ? you know what humans do after eating , it's something that God rises above doing it .
I'm so sorry that, that person lied to you, about Jehovah's Witnesses. There are a lot of people who like to spread lies about Jehovah's witnesses in saying we don't believe in Jesus, but that is not true. We just don't believe in the the trinity, which has pagan roots, that come from ancient pagans, who worshiped triad god's. The Catholics saw this teaching and infused it with their worship. They also adopted idol worship, the idea of eternal torment in hell and many other ideas from the pagans, so as to conform to the pagans standards rather then Jehovah's standards. We do believe in Jesus and follow his footsteps closely we know that he is our king in heaven and soon he will bring his kingdom hear on earth,Daniel 2:44 Psalms 37:10,11. We know that Jesus died for our sins so we can have salvation. We also know that he gave us commands to follow in preaching to people threw out the world, Matthew 24:14--28:19,20. We believe that Jehovah created his son Jesus in proverbs 8:22 Jesus says that "Jehovah produced him as the beginning of His earliest achievements, if you read on in the chapter you will see that jesus was his master worker, and the one who Jehovah was most fond of, that's why Jehovah new that Jesus was the perfect choice to send to earth. In John 20:17 Jesus says " Stop clinging to me. For I have not ascended to the Father. But be on you way to my brothers and say to them, 'I am ascending to my Father and your Father and to my God and your God' ". Jesus even said that "Most Truly I say to you, the Son cannot do a single thing of his own initiative, but only what he beholds the Father doing, John 5:19. In many other scriptures Jesus always said that his Father is Greater then he is, on top of that Jesus always prayed to his Father, John 17:3. John 14:28. Jehovah's Witnesses love believe and love Jesus very much and we exercise faith in him. Just because we do not believe in the doctrine of the trinity, does not mean we don't believe in Jesus. We know that he is the only means to salvation.

No. God can neither be born (Jesus was born), nor can he die (Jesus died). According to Jesus' own admission he was not god; read Mark 10:17-18: "Why do you call Me good? No one is good except God alone".
In the Four Gospels are presented three entirely different conceptions of the Christ. In Mark he is represented as the son of human parents -- the Messiah -- but simply a man (NB: this contradicts Mark 1:1, 3:11, etc). In Matthew and Luke we have the story of the miraculous conception -- he is represented as the Son of God. In John he is declared to be God himself. "In the beginning was the Word [Christ], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God" (i, 1). According to Mark Christ is a MAN; according to Matthew and Luke, a DEMIGOD; according to John, a GOD.
Voltaire thus harmonizes these discordant conceptions: "The son of God is the same as the son of man; the son of man is the same as the son of God. God, the father, is the same as Christ, the son; Christ, the son, is the same as God, the father. This language may appear confused to unbelievers, but Christians will readily understand it!!"
John 1:1-4. In the beginning was the word & the word was with god & the word was god. Jesus is the word & he god. The trinity: 3 in 1 1 god that functions in 3 ways Like water does : water - ice - steam Jehova witness say jesus was a man that died & will not return. They also believe they are the only people that will be saved by angels & some spirit of jesus.
Jesus is God incarnated in the flesh. ================Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation, for through him God created everything in the heavenly realms and on earth. He made the things we can see and the things we can?t see? such as thrones, kingdoms, rulers, and authorities in the unseen world. Everything was created through him and for him. He existed before anything else, and he holds all creation together. For God in all his fullness was pleased to live in Christ, and through him God reconciled everything to himself. He made peace with everything in heaven and on earth by means of Christ?s blood on the cross. (Colossians 1:15-17, 19, 20 NLT)==================================Without question, this is the great mystery of our faith: Christ was revealed in a human body and vindicated by the Spirit. He was seen by angels and announced to the nations. He was believed in throughout the world and taken to heaven in glory. (1 Timothy 3:16 NLT)
Yes, technically. Tho its a tough concept to explain to non-christians. Its more correct to say God is also Jesus. There is God. He is Ultimate. He is who we call God the Father. He is both the One and Only God and ALSO God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit. One God in Three Parts. Jesus was both fully a human and fully devine as God. He was like Gods avatar on earth. An avatar with the ability to both act independantly and as God. While Jesus walked on earth God was also in heaven. One AND Three Three BUT Only One Trinity - Jews, Jehovahs Witnesses and Muslims, none of these believe in the Trinity. Nor do they accept Jesus as Christ and Messiah.
If someone told me an untruth about you - would you want to automatically believe it or do my homework and learn more about who you really are as a person.
The same with Jehovah Witnesses - don't be too quick to believe everything that you hear. First - If you have ever seen any of the magazines they offer to those interested - pick up the Watchtower and right there in the cover - it tells you that they believe in Jehovah God- the Supreme Ruler of the Universe- and they also promote faith in Jesus Christ, who died as a ransom sacrifice for mankind so that we might gain everlasting life. They do not reject Jesus Christ - we are aware of the sacrifice that was made in behalf of mankind so that they can repent and have a chance to reconcile with Jehovah God. Please, do not believe all that you hear - that is Satan GOAL - is to keep the vast majority of mankind BLIND until God's Day is upon them.
