What churches don't teach is argumentation.
This is ALL the Theocractic Ministry School really is.
Cherry picking and quote mining are the arsenal of weaponry.
A string of IF...THEN.......IF....THEN scenarios are staged on the platform to demonstrate OVERCOMING objections.
No argument from the other side is ever considered to HAVE A BASIS in fact.
The TMS gives you a black and white recipe to follow. You learn to bake lead biscuits and drop them on people to stun them with your TRUTH.
Pathetic and intellectually vapid and dishonest.
Counterpunching is the skill most really good JW's learn.
The OTHER person puts something out there to consider and the JW throws a counter-punch.
The framing of the issue, the contexts are all in the CONTROL of the JW for the discussion to move forward.
TMS motto: My way or the highway.
