I just posted this to Oracle's thread but didn't want to hijack it so I thought I'd start my own. I think emails are a potentially effective way of conveying information to JW's, they love firing them off to all their friends. Could we get some information in under the radar in this manner...?
Our ministry is more of a challenge than ever. Whilst mainstream religions are losing members, some groups use unscrupulous methods to prevent their members examing their own beliefs. It takes extra knowledge and skills to reach these people so they can open their hearts to the truth.
Did you know that many organizations tell their members they are God's sole representatives on earth; so if they ever consider leaving that group they fear losing their relationship with God? Additionally some groups use phobias to prevent people leaving. Examples include a fear of death, demon influence and losing contact with all their friends and family. From their perspective our message is seen as an attack from Satan to undermine their faith!It's easy to see why such people are hard to reach. We owe it to these people to learn about the underhanded methods being used by high control groups so we are better equipped to help them. Otherwise they could lose out on the opportunity of learning the Bible's true message. Educate yourself about this issue and become a more effective teacher.
