Want to get a Jehovah’s Witness to listen instead of argue? There’s a simple way to do that. Questions, ask the right question and you’ll get his or her wheels spinning. Ask the wrong question and it’ll end up in a game of bible ping pong that quickly goes nowhere.
How do I know this? Simple. I was a Jehovah’s Witness for sixteen years for starters. And I was asked this question while I was door knocking full time. It worked on me, it can work for you too!
It’s important to remember–doctrine’s don’t save, only Jesus saves. Put doctrines on the back burner. You’ll get nowhere with them. Well, that’s a bit of an exaggeration. Most Jehovah’s Witnesses are not willing to engage in debate, most are so indoctrinated we can’t reach them. The key to waking up a Jehovah’s Witness is to help them see the Watchtower is not God’s chosen organization. It is not the “one true religion” like they claim. How do we do that?
