  • shiver * now there’s a frightening flashback! Thank goodness I don’t have to do that anymore!
    problem with considering only the INSIDE view of anything is that it is irrelevant to those who are not inside…
    JWs protected me from the bad bad ‘world’ for many years and for that much I am grateful. But my spirituality was definitely stunted after 15 years of regular pioneering and I just woke up one morning and realized I had outgrown it. The chaos and drama of leaving that life behind was a bitter battle, but being with them served it’s purpose–even all that door-knocking. When I see sincere JWs doing that today I have to think that there is some reason God allows them to still be there and when it is His time to add to their growth then He will call them out and show them where He wants them to go next. I pray everyday for the conversion of JWs to the fullness of truth and the true Church.

Hi:

If you would like to hear a response to the JWs’ message (which is actually quite offensive) check out the following link to download a free podcast:

All I have gleaned from watching the videos in question is that the Jehovah’s Witnesses have managed to create a systematic way of spreading heresy. I fail to be impressed and pray that we may stop them one day.


#7

But there are so many more Catholics, so why can’t we do that? I’ve never had a Catholic come to my door and evangelize.:confused:


#8

Have you ever wondered why JW’s have you read from their bible with your own lips when they visit? Think about it. Tim


#9

Jazzy asks a good question. Why DON’T we see faithfilled Catholics knocking on doors spreading the Word of God and sharing our Love of our Lord and Saviour?

steve, are you here to try to get catholics to leave the church? because if your doing that, it is against forum rules.

sounds to me by you posting these videos that your trying to proselytize catholics.

This section is for the purpose of talking about Non-Catholic Religions.

Since JW’s are a regular topic, I’m simply providing a link to some videos about their internal operations and activities world wide.

The information in these videos is generally not known to people whom JW’s call on.

For example, many find it interesting to learn about the computers systems designed to allow simultaneous publication of magazines in over 140 languages. That’s no simple feat. I believe the 2nd place goes to Reader’s Digest with about 20 simultaneous languages.

I was re-watching some of these videos today… I particularly enjoyed Part 5 which showed an inside view of the Patterson Educational facility where Circuit and District Overseers are trained.

Also interesting is the inside view into the Giliad training for those entering the full-time international missionary services.

Other than this video, you’ll likely never have the chance to see this inside view.

dude, this really is like proselytizing. its like saying, hey come here, and take a look at what we do, maybe you’ll be interested in seeing what we do, then the jw grabs the interest of the individual, and then he asks the individual if they’d like bible study. i know the strategies of the jw’s first hand, and this is one of them. don’t be fooled, it might look and sound innocent here, but these are tactics commonly used by jw’s.

see this:

Strategies of the Jehovah’s Witnesses

Each month Jehovah’s Witnesses (JWs) distribute millions of books, magazines, and pamphlets, in dozens of languages. Many of these are intended for non-Witnesses to try to convert them, but others are intended for Witnesses themselves.

One of the handbooks used by missionaries in the field is entitled Reasoning From the Scriptures, which first came out in 1985. The handbook covers seventy-six topics, ranging from abortion and ancestor worship, to paradise and philosophy, to women and the world. Each topic is devoted a few pages, and several questions are devoted to each topic. The book clearly centers around WTS theology, and this point is evident in part from the fact that some of the specific subjects treated in the book are identified as “Not a Bible teaching” (e.g. Apostolic Succession, Trinity) or “Not a Biblical practice” (e.g. Birthday).

Other introductions are grouped under headings such as “Crime/Safety,” “Current Events,” “Family/Children,” “Love/Kindness.” At the end of these introductions are what might be called introduction continuers, lines to use when missionaries are about to have a door slammed in their faces.

When many people in the area say, “I have my own religion,” it is recommended the missionaries use this opening: “Good morning. We are visiting all the families on your block (or, in this area), and we find that most of them have their own religion. No doubt you do too. . . . But, regardless of our religion, we are affected by many of the same problems—high cost of living, crime, illness—is that not so? . . . Do you feel that there is any real solution to these things? . . . (2 Pet. 3:13; etc.).”

Taking Cues

When many people say, “I’m busy,” this opening is used: “Hello. We’re visiting everyone in this neighborhood with an important message. No doubt you are a busy person, so I’ll be brief.” If the missionaries find themselves in a territory that is often worked by other JWs, they begin this way: “I’m glad to find you at home. We’re making our weekly visit in the neighborhood, and we have something more to share with you about the wonderful things that God’s Kingdom will do for mankind.”

The second chapter of the Reasoning book instructs missionaries in how to “respond to potential conversation stoppers.” The reader is told that “not everyone is willing to listen, and we do not try to force them. But with discernment it is often possible to turn potential conversation stoppers into opportunities for further discussion. Here are examples of what some experienced Witnesses have used in their efforts to search out deserving ones (Matt. 10:11).”

Keep in mind that the JW has been well-trained and is well-versed in the “pre-packaged” responses he has been taught. This fact adds to the appearance of the JW’s credibility and even his bibical “knowledge.” The reality, however, is that a given Witness has merely become adept at repeating select Bible verses and responses which he uses time and time again.

Strategies of the Jehovah’s Witnesses

Like Fundamentalists

Fundamentalists, though their theology is vastly better than that of the JWs, use a similar technique. On one hand, JWs argue to the truth of their position by asking, “That is an appealing thought, isn’t it?” Many people will conclude, “Yes, it is, and therefore it must be true”—illogical, perhaps, but that’s how many people think.

On the other hand, Fundamentalists will ask, “Wouldn’t you like an absolute assurance of salvation?” “Who wouldn’t?” is the reply, and, having given that reply, many people will find themselves accepting the Fundamentalists’ notion that one can have an absolute assurance of salvation (a doctrine that arises from their belief that all one needs to do to be saved is to “accept” Jesus as one’s “personal Lord and Savior”).
