At least, they say they're coming. For the past three weeks, the Jehovah's Witnesses have come to my house to talk with me about the gospel. Every Saturday at 11 AM, there is a knock at my door. The first week, they didn't stay very long. All they did was introduce themselves and give out their literature. The second week, things got a little more interesting. We got into a discussion about the kingdom of God, the deity of Christ, sin and redemption, and whether or not we should worship Jesus. The third week, they gently challenged my view of the deity of Christ by using Philippians 2:6. The verse says that Christ "did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped." We also talked about texts that teach His divinity, such as John 20:28 and Heb 1:8. I tried to explain the doctrine of the Trinity to them in a simple, straightforward way. I also explained the gospel to them. They said they'd be back next week, which is tomorrow. But before they left, they encouraged me to study Genesis 1 in preparation. I suppose they're going to ask me about the Holy Spirit, who they believe is an impersonal force. So, I'm getting ready for that, but I'm also getting ready to show them what their own New World Translation says about Christ's divinity.
They're supposed to come again at 11. I don't know whether or not they will, but please pray that the Spirit will open their hearts to His Word (Hebrews 4:12-13). They are greatly deceived, and they are oppressed by the Watchtower Organization. They desperately need God's mercy. God is powerful to save. We're going to have cookies and drinks for them tomorrow when they come.
Here is the approach I'm going to take with them. I'll ask, "Would you agree that if the Bible teaches that Jesus is Jehovah God, you must accept that fact, even if you cannot fully understand how Jesus can be both God and man?" Then, I want to take them through the following outline:
1. Deuteronomy 6:4 - There is only one God, Jehovah.
2. Isaiah 43:10-11 - God is Jehovah, the only Savior, and there is no other.
3. Isaiah 44:6 - Jehovah God is the first and the last.
4. Revelation 1:8 - Jehovah is the Lord God Almighty, the Alpha (first) and the Omega (last).
5. Revelation 22:13 - Jesus is the Alpha (first) and the Omega (last), the beginning and the end. See also verse 17. We know Christ is the one speaking because of the repeated phrase, "I am coming soon" throughout the passage (vv. 7, 12, 20).
6. Revelation 1:17-18 - The one God who is the first and the last died and rose again.
I encourage you to write this outline in the back of your own Bible in case you ever have an opportunity to speak with the Jehovah's Witnesses about the hope that is within you. It's adapted from an appendix in Everyday Evangelism by Billie Hanks, Jr.
