I had a couple ladies come to my door this morning that are Jehovah's Witnesses. I have talked to people of that faith briefly but not in a few years. I have been ill with a cold, in fact I answered the door with a blanket wrapped around me so I pretty much told them that I do not believe as they do and sent them on their way.
I then felt pulled to go and talk to them. A couple days my sister asked me to do some research on the Jehovah Witness faith because someone at her husband's work was asking him to prove his Christian beliefs and she wasn't sure what exactly the differences were between us. I looked online and printed out some pages and that was that. (I tried going to their official website to be sure of their beliefs but it I could not find any list of beliefs there, maybe it was operator error?) I looked over the pages I printed briefly as I have been quite busy taking care of a house full of sick people.
Well, I grabbed my papers and Bible and pretty much chased the ladies down the street. We chatted back and forth for about a half an hour, mostly focusing on Jesus and their belief that he and the archarngel Micheal are one and the same.
I let them do alot of talking and I just asked questions as we went along trying to poke holes in their beliefs. In the end, they wiggled out of the talk because we were out talking in front of someone else's house and that made them uncomfortable.
We made plans for them to come back in a week and I need to get all my ducks in a row before then.
Anyone have any experience on what I should focus on or a guide of sorts? I tried my best but I felt really unprepared and being sick my brain was a little fuzzy but I think I did well with the points I focused on. (John 1:1, John 8:58, John 14:14) I remember my pastor going on about something in Revelation that proves Jesus is God as well but like I said I am fuzzy headed.
Edit: It was Revelation 1:8. But I am sure that their answer to that will be the same as what they said to John 1:1 about Jesus having a beginning so he cannot be God because God has no beginning.
Please help, I would love to focus on their New World Translation and its changes as well.
Thank you and may God bless you,
