Tips on Witnessing to JWs (click to expand)

The most important rule of all…
you must LOVE the people you are witnessing to
If you don’t have love for them, don’t even try it.

Keep in mind…

  • JWs assume they have more knowledge than you
  • JWs look forward to teaching the Bible
  • JWs are taught to answer questions
  • JWs are taught to avoid people that debate

How to Witness

  • Don’t tell them their Bible translation is wrong
  • Don’t tell them their Religion is wrong
  • Don’t tell them what a Bible passage means
  • Use their Bible translation (New World Translation)
    “Only the 144k anointed class know the Bible and can interpret it”

Don’t tell them anything… have them open their Bible and ASK questions.

The goal is to sow seeds of truth. You plant the seeds and the Holy Spirit makes them grow. Let the Lord do the work according to His timing.
Plant seeds and Pray!
