[quote=K-McD]I have been dialoging with a Jehovah Witness for about a year. He comes around every so often and talks for about 20 minutes. Sometimes it’s good because we talk about our different beliefs, but most of the time it’s a “Yes, you did. No, I didn’t.” kind of exchange.
I am learning more and more about their beliefs, thanks to CA and you people. My question is whether it is better to talk to him about his beliefs its inconsistencies or talk to him about the Catholic faith?
Your input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
One of the main concepts of their religion is that we should measure our religion to see if it fits w/the Bible. Sort of a Sola Scriptura variant I guess. I always work to show them that they are not in line w/ what the Bible teaches. One really good thing about being Catholic is that we can show historically that the early church was Catholic. your friend probably doesn’t know who Ignatius of Antioch was, but I like to start right there to show that Catholic wasn’t some late invention, but that it was what the early church called itself to designate the real Christianity from all the cults & heresies. It’s all there…all we can do is pray for them, be charitable, and tell 'em the truth while we live it out.
