Why Witness to Witnesses?
In the audio series called Jehovah's Witnesses: The Door to a Different Kingdom, produced by Hope for the Heart, an ex-Witness spoke about the need to evangelize those couples who knock on your door on a Saturday morning. As with worldly people, these folks also need to hear the gospel that freed us.
As James 2:8 (KJV) admonishes us, "If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, 'Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself,' ye do well:"
But some believers are reluctant to even talk with Jehovah's Witnesses because those folks are trained to twist the scriptures and befuddle us who worship Christ. Even so, the Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) that we must, "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
And as he also admonished in 2 Timothy 4:2 (KJV),, we must, "Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine."
And remember too that what we believe is from God himself, not some human authority such as their Watchtower Society. Jesus prayed in John 17:17 KJV), "Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth."
Remember likewise what Paul wrote in 2 Timothy 3:16 KJV). "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:"
Let's then be like Paul who wrote in 1 Corinthians 9:16 (KJV), "For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!"
I'll be writing about this glorious gospel and how it frees people from eternal damnation in my next book called You Think You're Going to Heaven? I remember what the Lord said in Ezekiel 3:18 (KJV), "When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand."
