Jehovah's Witnesses

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that Satan rules the present age on earth

.

-They believe that the Bible is the word of God and the sole source of religious and moral authority-They believe that Jesus is the Son of God, born a virgin, and the reconciler of humankind to God-They believe that they are the true Christians in the image of the primitive church and that salvation only comes through the beliefs and works of the Society-They do not believe in the Holy Trinity

Beliefs

The Jehovah's Witnesses have no special day for worship and do not celebrate holidays such as Christmas and Easter, nor do they celebrate birthdays

Jehovah's Witnesses use their own translation of the Bible as authorative. Impartial bibical scholars find the translation problematic

Jehovah's Witnesses believe that though Christ is God's son, he is inferiorto God the father and created by him. They think that the title of Christ as "firstborn" of God's creation implies that he succeeded from God and is inferior to him. Rather, there is no time that the son did not exsist. He is equal to the father, and he is both God and man.
