Are Jehovah's Witnesses Heretics?

Are they to be considered heretics? I know that their beliefs on the holy spirit are rather controversial, as is their views on blood transfusions.

They don't believe Jesus is God.  They look at him as a prophet but not God, so that makes them heretics.  I don't agree with them on transfusions, but that alone wouldn't make them heretics.

Yes they are heretics.   They do not only not believe Jesus is the Son of God but believe that the cross is a evil symbol.  They are all scrambling to be one of the 144,000.  If they would only read God's word they would know that the 144,000 are Jews.  Yes the word heretics get's my  vote.

They also believe the holy spirit is a force and not a person. They're just very lost people in general and need much prayer.

When the Lord addressed the seven churches in Revelation chapters 2 & 3, He was very careful to point out both good and bad in each (or most), and he didn't paint with a wide swathe.

Emulate Christ.

 

There is plenty of JW doctrine to criticize.

 

NEVERTHELESS, they have prevented the easter bunny from going hippity-hoppity into the Sanctuary. They celebrate the Christian Passover, with their own nuances.

A lot of "main stream" churches celebrate easter, and a few even roll eggs on Sanctuary grounds.

 

Now those guys have guts! I, for one, would not want to be the person putting the Asherah to His nose (metaphorically speaking).

Yes.  Don't they think Jesus is Michael the archangel or something?

 

Yes; they believe He is a created being and is not to be worshipped.  They also believe the Cross is an evil idol.

Yes they always picture Jesus hanging on a stake. I guess the Scripture is right about the Cross being an offense...
