Differences between Christianity, Jehovah Witness and Mormonism
A Jehovah's Witness comes to faith by studying the Bible

American evangelist Charles Taze Russel founded the Jehovah's Witnesses of the Reformation in the 1870s. In 1968, there were about 10,000 Jehovah's Witnesses in Finland, and by 2010, the figure had stabilized at about 19,000. Globally, they are estimated to range from six million to eight million.

What distinguishes Jehovah's Witnesses from Christians is that they do not recognize the doctrine of the Trinity. According to them, Jesus is only the Son of God, not equal to God. For this reason, not all theologians consider them to be Christians, even though the Movement itself thinks they are.

One of the best known beliefs of Jehovah's Witnesses is the Day of Judgment, or Armageddon. Then the nations will turn to God, but God will cleanse the earth from their enemies. The Battle of Armageddon is followed by a millennial, paradise kingdom. Only those who awaken God - those who have not received God's word - will be lost. According to Jehovah's Witnesses, only by studying the Bible can one gain salvation faith.

Jehovah's Witnesses also differ in some other respects from other communities in the program. Political neutrality is particularly important to them and they do not accept blood transfusions or transplants - Jehovah is the supreme doctor. Nor do they celebrate Christmas, for Jesus did not command his birthday, but his birthday.

Mormons enjoy water instead of wine at supper

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are Mormons. At the time of the program, there were about 3,000 in Finland, and by 2012 the number had grown slightly to about 4,800. The Church has over 15 million members worldwide. The Mormon Church was founded by the American Prophet Joseph Smith in the 19th century.

According to the Mormons, Jesus also once visited America, where he taught for 12 days and ordained the apostles. This visit is illustrated by the metal plates discovered and translated by the Prophet Smith. The translation gave birth to the Book of Mormon, which Mormons use alongside the Bible.

Just as with Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormon Christianity is debated because they too do not base the Trinity doctrine. However, the reasoning is different: they believe that Deity is made up of three different persons, the fleshly son of Jesus Christ and the Father God, and the spirit person of the Holy Spirit. Mormons consider themselves Christians.

Mormons are very gracious about who will be saved from eternal death. According to them, anyone, regardless of religion, can be saved through the Atonement of Christ. Mormons believe that through their deeds, people will have access to different glories, and to the highest glory will be the faithful people who live according to the commandments of Christ. Only those who transgress against the Holy Spirit will go to hell. After the Millennium and the Second Coming of Christ, a new Zion will be created for America.

In the Supper, Mormons enjoy water instead of wine. This is a tradition of the persecutors of the Church, though Mormons do not drink alcohol or even coffee or tea anyway. Smoking is also not allowed.

Mormons have no paid clergy, and almost all boys over the age of 12 are chosen to be priests. Women cannot serve as priests, but they still receive divine revelations that help them in their life duties. Missionary work is also an essential part of the Mormon Church. At the time of the program, most of the young people in Finland worked mainly at home, but nowadays missionary work is done around the world.
