What Can I Do To Convince A Jehovah's Witness They're Wrong.

Do you have a relative or very close friend who's a Jehovah's Witness? Is your relationship on the rocks because of religion? How can you show them they are wrong? How can you have your relative back? How can you restore the relationship you had before?

Love Conquers All.

One way you can convince a Jehovah's Witness they are wrong is by being an example of Christ's unconditional love for all of us regardless of religious beliefs. Jesus said, 'But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.' Luke 6:35

Critics say that Jehovah is a very different god than 'God the Father'. See Jehovah vs Jesus. Jesus explained God's love. But JW's put Jehovah first and Jesus second.

JW's believe that they are the only true religion. All others are false and dominated by Satan the Devil. People who are controlled by Satan are evil. People who are JW's belong to Jehovah's organization. They are separate from false religion and the God of this wicked world, Satan the Devil. Since the 1870's they've been preaching that armageddon is right around the corner and people must join in order to be saved.

The dilemma JW's face is this. If their God Jehovah destroys people who are perfect examples of Christ's love just because they didn't join the JW's, that would make Jehovah way more evil than the wicked people he condemns.

By being a good person, - loving, kind, and obviously not 'wicked', you are communicating a powerful message. Your relative may notice that you are an example of the love Jesus taught his disciples to have. Smart JW's will begin to ask, 'how could my God be so evil'? My relative is one of the most loving people I know. She is not 'wicked'. She's just like me. Why would Jehovah take her life at armageddon and spare mine?

Get your JW friends and relatives to understand that religions can't save people. Only Jesus has that authority. Matthew 28:18,19. Eternal life is a FREE gift. Being united in beliefs is not a requirement for salvation. Christians are not united in beliefs. They are united in God's love.

It's true that 'faith without works is dead' James 2: 17-26 and it's true that the Bible does encourage 'good works'. I Timothy 6:18; Titus 2:7; Matthew 5:16; Hebrews 10:24; 1 Peter 2:12; James 3:13; However that means being kind, loving, and generous. No where in the Bible does it say that God requires people to dedicate their life to any church or organization. Jesus said that Christians are to be baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, - NOT Jehovah and their favorite religion. See Baptism
