How To Deal with "Jehovah Witness" False Teaching: Tips and Tools

TruthTruth Posts: 421

Dealing with JW's is challenging because JW's are deeply indoctrinated by the Watchtower, hold deeply-felt fear of their internal culture, and generally won't engage refutations of their teaching or false prophecies by their church leaders.

Having tools ready at hand to discern good from evil may be helpful. This thread could be a resource for doing so.

This thread could a be a locus to expose critical false teaching of the JW cult.

  1. Falsehood and how to kindly respond

2. Understanding the JW distortion of who Jesus is.

3. Warnings of eternal-life-threatening untruth taught by JW's and their Watchtower.

JW's do not accept Jesus as their savior:

The watchtower says Jesus is mediator for just the 144,000 anointed.

"So in this strict Biblical sense Jesus is the "mediator" only for anointed Christians." Watchtower 1979 Apr 1 p.31

"Likewise, the Greater Moses, Jesus Christ, is not the Mediator between Jehovah God and all mankind. He is the Mediator between his heavenly Father, Jehovah God, and the nation of spiritual Israel, which is limited to only 144,000 members." Worldwide Security Under the "Prince of Peace" (1986) pp.10-11

The Bible states that Jesus is our mediator, and his ransom is for all.

"… one mediator between God and men, the man, Christ Jesus, who gave himself a corresponding ransom for all." 1 Timothy 2:5,6

This is enough to prime the pump.
