The Premise of My Book

Kindle book coverHow will my book, Getting Through to Jehovah’s Witnesses: Approaching Bible Discussions in Unexpected Ways, help readers who want to reach Jehovah’s Witnesses with the gospel of Jesus Christ?

Let’s face it. Standard gospel presentations don’t work with Jehovah’s Witnesses. They have been trained to ignore them. They focus instead on teaching us “the truth”—that is, Watchtower theology.

Here’s how it goes. The Witnesses present one of the Watchtower’s heretical teachings. The Christian expresses disagreement. The Witnesses respond with replies the Watchtower has trained them to give. Both sides start exchanging Bible proof texts. Back and forth. Back and forth. Back and forth they go.

Usually, I avoid discussions on this topic because it’s not a salvation issue. However, sometimes we need to address it. Continue reading

Discussing the Cross

Cross

Jehovah’s Witnesses often go to great lengths to try to prove to us that Jesus died on a single, upright “torture stake” rather than on a traditional cross.

I don’t think most of us care about the shape of the instrument on which he died.

However, because the Watchtower attacks Christians over this issue and has convinced Witnesses that this is an issue which distinguishes authentic and false Christianity, the Holy Spirit may lead you to engage them on this topic. Continue reading
