Street-Talk with Jehovah's Witnesses
Opening up a street-level dialogue with Jehovah's Witnesses:
Since this will probably be a one time occurrence, an important objective of any street encounter is to bless JWs with doubt about their beloved organization.
After exchanging niceties, you might say something like:
I must confess - I could never become a Jehovah's Witness (Why not?)
because I don't believe your religion is Bible-based. (Of it course is!)
Is it Bible based:
to say that God promised to bring about a new safe system before those who saw the events of 1914 passed away? (?)
That was taught right up to October 1995. Was that Bible based or speculation based?
Didn't the Watchtower make God a liar since He made no such promise?
to say that organ transplants are cannibalism? (?) Was that Bible based or speculation based?
Was that Bible based or speculation based? How many Witnesses died unnecessarily when transplants were banned from 1967-1980?
to say that vaccinations represent a breach of the everlasting covenant? (?)
How many died because vaccinations were banned from 1921 to 1952?
Was the ban on vaccinations Bible based or speculation based?
to say that alternative military service compromises neutrality? (?)
How many young JWs in the 60s went to prison because of Watchtower speculation?
to teach that Armageddon would occur in 1914, 1918, 1925, 1975 (?)
Was that Bible based or just prophetic speculation.
to teach that one need be associated with and loyally follow men in New York to have eternal life? Where does the Bible teach this?
