Is This What God Purposed?
You are going to need a lot of patience whenever you witness to a Jehovah’s Witness. Whenever you ask one of them a question, he will give a lot of explanations–as if you do not know anything about the Bible–and this will take a long time.
It can be tiring to have to listen so much, but it is important to listen well, because Jehovah’s Witnesses will very often contradict themselves and you can point this out later to your advantage.
Also, when you ask a question for which they don’t know the answer, they will often begin a long explanation about another subject. When this happens, remember your question. When they get finished with this long explanation about something you are not talking about, go back to the original question and ask it again. Do not pick up on something you are not discussing and go “chasing rabbits.”
Remember that you are not only dealing with a Jehovah’s Witness but the Lord will be dealing with you, and He is able to teach you many things. You are going to need patience—to be long-suffering, kind, gentle, loving–and should spend a lot of time in prayer.
The Watch Tower Society likes to boast that it is the only religion that seeks to use God’s name and make it known.
To back this up it replaces every instance of the Hebrew word YHWH or LORD in the old testament with the word Jehovah.
However it then goes a step further by replacing the word Lord in the Greek new testament also with the word Jehovah.
But is it justified in doing so? In this video Paul Jennings of Stockport Evangelical Church looks at the Society’s use of the name Jehovah in the new testament to find out.
