Article: A Brief Overview of the Jehovah's Witness Worldview by J. Warner Wallace

A few Saturdays ago I had the opportunity to chat with a few Jehovah's Witnesses that came knocking on my door.  Some find these visits to be annoying or intrusive, but for a few reasons I really enjoy them!  First of all, these people are coming to your door wanting to talk about spiritual matters.  How often does that happen?  I know that with family and co-workers it can many times be difficult to get them to want to talk about eternal things, but these folks are primed and ready!

Second, it is a great opportunity for me to learn from a Jehovah's Witness what Jehovah's Witnesses believe.  Articles and books are great, but discussing these issues with them gives you first hand experience in witnessing and assures that you understand what they believe directly from them.

Finally, this occasion provides you with an outstanding chance to share the true gospel of Jesus Christ and share with them why they are mistaken.  Today's featured article from J. Warner Wallace is a great way to prepare for those types of opportunities.

You can check it out here.

Also, do you avoid discussions with Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses because you don't know what to say?  If so, I encourage you to read this article from Stand to Reason's Alan Shlemon.

Courage and Godspeed,

Thanks for sharing! The ten questions one should ask a JW that Wallace posted the next day looks like a great resource as well.
