Jehovah's Witnesses Belief Comparison

Our Belief Jehovah's Witnesses Belief
The Bible is the Word of God Yes, however the most accurately translated version is the Jehovah's Witness version, "New World Translation." [source]
There is one God There is one God. [source] However, Jesus is also referenced as (or called) God in the Bible.
The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are 3 in one God is one person only, the Holy Spirit is a force, but is not God, and Jesus was the first created being, but not God.
Man was created in the Image of God We are created in God's image.
Salvation is received by faith in Jesus Christ (life, death, and resurrection) and not by our works Christ's human life was paid as a ransom for obedient humans ("good works"). Of those who are obedient, only 144,000 will go to Heaven. [source]
All who believe in Christ become Children of God Only Jehovah's Witnesses can become saved and children of God.
As Christians we are to abide by the standards set in the Holy Bible We are to abide by the standards of the Holy Bible. [source]
No man can contradict/ edit the Word of God The Bible is truth, and is more reliable than human traditions. [source] However, the Bible can only be interpreted by the Watch Tower Society, and not individually. Also, Watch Tower publications are to be considered the Word of God.
Notes: Jehovah's Witnesses do not confirm that Jesus rose again from the dead physically, but instead affirm that he rose as an immortal spirit person, and that His presence is in spirit. They also deny the diety of Christ (believing that He is instead the Arch Angel Michael) and note that Christ is inferior to the Father.

They are also against blood transfusions, clergy/ special titles, and the cross (stating that Christ died on a stake, not a cross).

Status: this article is undisputed.
