When someone asks, "Why should I learn how to effectively talk to JWs?"

    From my own perspective, I have learned so much about how to share my faith and I have gained an enormous amount of patience. I also have learned how I need to read everything in context, lest I become very confused and be led astray of what the Bible is really saying.

    I would like to know what reasons you would give for people to learn how to effectively witness to Jehovah's Witnesses? And how many people, in the time frame that you were an active JW, asked the right questions while you were a JW? (For every 100 doors, how many knew what to ask?)Questions that made you have second thoughts or doubts that you were really in the truth. What were those questions? Thanks for any responses!

    What's the goal?

    I think the talking is not so nearly as important as listening.

    It's goods to help those lost souls to come out of the deception and exploitation of the WTS, though for some fading away will be the best way. At least they leave the borg psychologically and don't offer anything to them any more.

    For me it was the blood question that raised most doubts: why not save a life while not losing or harming another life? What does giving blood have to do with the killing of animals? The JW position sounded too extreme and unreasonable.

    Because you won't get many shots at it. JW's are a tiny cult in a huge world, chances are good you'll not encounter more than a handful of them in your lifetime. So when you get a chance to talk to one of them, you need to be ready to use that time to greatest effect.

    On the other hand, a person might reason that THEY got out on their own (or were never stupid enough to join), it isn't really their place to choose another person's religion for them, and their time could be put to better use by doing something else, not honing their anti-witnessing skills.

    I've swayed back and forth. Currently I'm in the "want to help" part of the cycle. Apathy will hit me eventually, during which time whatever I did while I was interested in helping will have to speak for me.

    Have you personally had success in your anti-witnessing efforts? What did you find to be effective?
