†††††††††Isaiah the prophet warned the Israelites about false religion saying,
For those who guide this people
are leading them astray;
and those who are guided by them
are brought to confusion.
†††††††††As we know, God is not the author of confusion (1 Corinthians 14:33, 40).
He will not give any doctrine, contrary to His Word. Therefore, our task is to
lovingly correct the J.W. (2 Timothy 2:24-26); and to pray that their eyes will be
opened, that they may see Truth (John 14:6); and the One who is our Mediator (1
†††††††††We begin our task, with a challenge. Show the Jehovahís Witness, their own
statements, from their own publications. Below are a few suggestions. These
quotes speak for themselves:
We need to examine, not only what we personally believe, but also
what is taught by any religious organization which we may be
associated. Are its teachings in full harmony with Godís Word, or are
they based on traditions of men? If we are lovers of truth, there is
nothing to fear from such an examination.
(The Truth That Leads to Eternal Life, 1968, WTBTS, p. 13).
It is not religious persecution for an informed person to expose publicly
a certain religion as being false, thus allowing persons to see the
difference between false religion and true religion.
††††††††††††††††††(Watchtower, November 15, 1963, p. 688)
†††††††††††Letís also include:
If the message Jehovahís Witnesses are bringing to the people is true,
then it is of greatest importance to mankind. If it is false, then it is
the duty of the clergymen and others who support them to come
boldly forward and plainly tell the people wherein the message is false.
(Golden Age, January 18, 1933, p. 252).
†††††††††Our second challenge, is understanding the false teaching within the
Watchtower organization, and using Godís Word to reveal Divine truth to the J.W.
†††††††††Many of the articles, in the sections below, have links to original Watchtower
sources. Feel free to print them out, and put in a notebook with dividers for each
category. Please, letís not resale this material, in any form. The Lord freely gave
this vital information to Faith and Reason Forum, so that you may use this material,
freely. In turn, pass this treasure trove on to others, freely. (If you have a
website, and believe your readers would be interested in this materialĖsimply link
them over to this section. Thank you.)
†††††††††If you donít know how to discuss certain J.W. teachings/doctrines to them, it
is our hope that the introduction in many of these categories will help you along.
Feel free to get in touch with us, if you are having any difficulty, or if you need
further clarification. Please understand that when we receive a volume of
questions, it may take awhile before we can get back to you.
†††††††††In ending, letís remember that most J.W.ís donít know about the comments,
the controversies, the false teachings from their own Watchtower organization. Oh,
to think that God may give us the opportunity to show them truth! What an honor!
Letís try to take that opportunity when itís knocking at our door.
†††††††††If the Jehovahís Witnesses catch you by surprise (which they usually do),
reschedule a more convenient time to talk to them (say, the following week?).
Then, contact all your friends to be praying for you, and the J.W.ís, you will be
sharing with. Thatís not all. You pray too, for not only the opportunity in sharing
(Luke 10:2) but for your preparation time, as well (1 Peter 3:15). May the Lord
bless your evangelistic efforts.
"Delighting in sharing not only the Gospel of God, but our lives as well."
1 Thessalonians 2:8
