    Spreading the good news by going to people's homes is something what Jesus and his disciples did and what Jesus himself commanded us to do. So every true Christian must participate to the work of making disciples.

    "Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the holy spirit, teaching them to observe all the things I have commanded you. And, look! I am with you all the days until the conclusion of the system of things.” -- Matthew 28:19,20

    "And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come." -- Matthew 24:14

    Jehovah's Witnesses don't engage in conversions which seem to lead to nowhere. They are aware of the fact that those with a sincere heart have to know the truth about God and his purposes because 'the day' is 'drawing near'. (Hebrews 10:25).

    "And this good news of the kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth for a witness to all the nations; and then the end will come." -- Matthew 24:14

    I wouldn't if I were you. People have spent months studying their faith to try and shed some light on the truth of God's word and they won't budge! They want to talk to you because they need to earn "points". It's how they earn their way to heaven. Don't waste your time just pray for them, you don't want to be in an awkward situation at work because you had a religious disagreement.

  • Read your bible and direct them too anything within it.

    Tell them that you want to see bible evidence and they should do so. You can discuss anything with them.

    Jw's are Christians because they believe in Jesus!

    Oh, tell them that they should listen too. (because they should)

    The guy before me said to get the JW's to defend their belief that Jesus is gods son. Lol - thats a good idea. You'll probably find that they can defend it and that their explanation is quite logical and correct as I did.

    Ant...

    Speaking with JW's requires using the Bible, because we believe it's the authority.

    How to witness to Jehovah’s Witnesses:

    First don’t argue with us. We didn’t come to your door to argue. Nobody wins an argument (contrary to what others have said). Please understand that for one to win an argument, one of the individuals would have had to change their mind. If we feel that all you want to do is argue we will leave. By leaving we aren’t “running away” we are following the counsel at Matt 10:12,13.

    Next don’t try to tell us that we must believe the trinity. According to the New Encyclopedia Britannica (1976), and the New Catholic Encyclopedia (1967) the trinity is not found in the bible, and the Apostles did not believe anything even remotely approaching that idea in the bible. The Encyclopedia Americana (1956) says that the trinity does not reflect accurately early Christian teaching regarding the nature of God, it is, on the contrary a deviation from their teaching.

    So if you say that you can “prove” the trinity using the bible, you are either misunderstanding what the bible is actually trying to say or you are purposely trying to teach falsehoods.

    Next don’t say that “my” bible is inaccurate or full of mistakes. According to Truth in Translation: Accuracy and Bias in English Translations of the New Testament. by Jason BeDuhn, associate professor of religious studies at Northern Arizona University, in Flagstaff, Arizona,

    The New World Translation “is one of the most accurate English translations of the New Testament currently available” and “the most accurate of the translations compared.” One of the bibles it was compared to was the NIV. John 1:1 was one of the verses compared and the NWT was the only bible translation that translated it correctly. (He did say he preferred “and the Word was divine or godlike to “a god”, but a god is an accurate and truthful translation).

    Speaking of the NIV, when Edwin H. Palmer, Th.D., Executive Secretary for the NIV’s committee was asked why they didn’t translate Jehovah’s name correctly and accurately in their bible in the almost 7000 times it appears, he stated that they spent $2 million dollars and if they had translated God’s name correctly as Jehovah or Yahweh instead of LORD, they would be throwing that money away. He also said that we are the victims of 350 years of the King James tradition.

    So my question is if they mistranslated Jehovah’s name 7000 times to “sale bibles” what else did they mistranslate? (2 Corinthians 2:17)

    If the reason they didn’t use Jehovah’s name was “Jewish Tradition” remember what Jesus said about Jewish traditions and God’s Word at Matt 15:6, the Jews had made God’s Word invalid do to their traditions. Therefore is following Jewish tradition a good idea when it comes to translating God’s Word?

    Another point you shouldn’t bring up is the immortality of the soul. Unless you can disprove Ezekiel 18:4 and Matt 10:28 which says that the soul will die and also be destroyed as punishment for sin. Please remember that the first recorded lie in the bible was to the effect that if we disobey God we will not die. (Gen. 3:4) So if you tell me that the soul does not die you are repeating the lie Satan told Eve.

    Add to this the fact that according to Eccl. 9: 5 & 10, the dead are conscience of nothing at all and Jesus liken death to sleep (Matt 9:24; John 11:11-14). Finally let’s not forget that eternal life is a reward for faithfulness, not something we already have.

    Another point you shouldn’t mention is “All those who believe that Jesus is Lord will go to heaven.” Please notice what Jesus said about John the Baptist at Matthew 11:11. No one can deny John’s faith in Jesus, but he won’t even be a lesser one in heaven, so how and where is John to receive his reward for faithful service? (Matt 5:5) This is in harmony with what the bible says about King David (Acts 2:34) not going to heaven. Another point about heaven is don’t say Jehovah took Enoch to heaven because Jesus denies this at John 3:13.

    So what is the best way to witnesses to one of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Well, instead of waiting for one to come to your door, call your local Kingdom Hall and ask for a personal study of the bible, study once or twice a week, attend all the meetings for 6 months. If you haven’t learned to witness to Jehovah’s people in this time period, pray to Jehovah and ask him to help you remove whatever it is that is holding you back.

    Harvard an Yale started as divinity schools.

    Do they have a JW section.

    The main difference between JW's and Christians (JW's are not Christians!) is that JW's do not accept Jesus Christ as deity. Jesus Christ is not God! Jesus was created by God like ALL of us.

    Steer the conversation towards that and see if they can defend it. They can't for that is JW's doctrine. It is false doctrine and goes against Scripture.

    Like all "Christian wannabe religions" they cannot defend against the truth that is God's Word. JW's survive on the ignorance of their congregations. Be strong in your faith and study the truth - you will be the Sword of Jesus Christ.

    They know the Bible much better than most professed "Christians".
