Actually, if you wish to find fault with someone, you will easily find many of them, whether they happen to be Jehovah's Witnesses or not. Look at yourself, for example: How many faults do you have? How many of them are you willing to admit to yourself that you have?
You wanted to know about a dead man's wealth; he had none. He had gifts and if someone should give you a $10,000 ring or a $100,000 car, that wouldn't make you wealthy. You would just be the owner of a $10K ring and a $100K car.
I don't know why you were called a "debater," but maybe he doesn't like people that seem to him to be faultfinders, if that is what you are, but he may have called you "a debater" for other reasons. Be that as it may, if you disagree with what Jehovah's Witnesses teach about the significance of the year 1914, I see no reason that you should have to believe what we believe. None whatsoever. Many people like Jehovah's Witnesses for the way our homes look, the way our children behave, the way we treat others, except for the way we shun disfellowshipped Witnesses, which is understandable because they have not yet become "rooted ... in the faith." (Colossians 2:7)
If you have no real interest in the message that Jehovah's Witnesses seek to spread to others, don't listen to it. Don't bother trying to wake us up because, believe it or not, we are already awake. Jesus will judge both the living and the dead (2 Timothy 4:1); maybe you've heard this before and maybe not. If Rutherford or anyone now dead or you or anyone now living should not be found by Jesus to know God or being obedient to the good news, God's vengeance will be upon you as you will indeed "undergo the judicial punishment of everlasting destruction" for everyone will render an account to Jesus. (2 Thessalonians 1:7-9; 1 Peter 4:5)
Tell the man that you are an undercover reporter, since that is what you essentially are, and that you have no real interest in any of this Bible stuff, and leave him alone to do the work of the Lord" as best he can. (1 Corinthians 15:58) He's wasting his time with you, so why not just tell him that? Come to JWN and debate me. I don't mind talking to people that aren't really interested in what Jehovah's Witnesses believe or teach. So if 1914 is your topic of choice, then we'll discuss that, but you pick the topic. Look: I'll be your huckleberry.
