Things Jehovah Witnesses Can’t Do – Today we’ll go through the majority of things a Jehovah Witness cannot do and why. But first, let’s define Jehovah’s Witnesses and learn a little about their history.

Jehovah’s Witnesses are a millennialist denomination that arose within the greater 19th-century Adventist movement in the United States and has since grown worldwide. The Jehovah’s Witnesses arose from the International Bible Students Association, which Charles Taze Russell formed in Pittsburgh in 1872.

Jehovah Witness History

Jehovah Witness is recognized as an Adventist movement that arose in the 1830s in response to William Miller’s promise that Jesus Christ will return in 1843 or 1844. When Christ did not arrive as Miller predicted, Adventists split into several sects. Charles Taze Russell established himself as an independent and controversial Adventist instructor throughout the 1870s.

He rejected the concept of hell as a place of endless suffering and embraced a non-Trinitarian theology that denied Jesus’ deity. He also understood Jesus Christ’s Second Coming in line with the precise translation of the original Greek phrase, parousia (“presence”), implying that Christ would appear as an unseen presence and that the Parousia, or “Millennial Dawn,” had already occurred in 1874.
