JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES AND MORMONS


New studies reveal most adult Witnesses have made a personal commitment to Christ they consider important in their life, but only 10% base their hope of salvation on a confession of sins and acceptance of Jesus as savior. 61% of Jehovah’s Witnesses, vs. 42% of born-again adults, strongly believe Satan exists. Jehovah’s Witnesses are also more likely than born-agains to argue that Jesus lived a sinless life on earth (77% vs. 63%). 33% of Mormons claim to be born-again, but some evangelical leaders are troubled that Mormons’ refuse to trust wholly on God’s grace and forgiveness through Christ as the only means to salvation. A majority of Mormons believe a good person can earn their way into heaven. More than 90% have made a personal commitment to Christ they describe as important in their life; 90% say their religious faith is very important in their life; 66% affirm the sinless life of Christ on earth; and more than 50% believe Satan exists. 74% of Jehovah’s Witnesses and 64% of Mormons say they have a personal responsibility to share their faith with others, while 54% of born-agains have that same conviction. 88% of Witnesses believe the Bible is completely accurate vs. 71% of born-agains and 32% of Mormons.
