I agree in principle. Can I put it this way?: To be a Christian one must believe the truth about God and Jesus Christ.
After all, if we don’t have the basics about who God is, what hope is there?
I must admit I’ve enjoyed reading your posts, it’s always nice when I’m able to read dialogue between Catholics and Witnesses and you have certainly conducted yourself with class and respect. Not to imply that other Witnesses do not, but you certainly seem more willing to step into enemy territory, where others would just as easily avoid it. Lol
My in-laws and the majority of wife’s extended family are practicing Jehovah’s Witnesses, so I’ve come to learn and experience many different aspects of their faith and not simply what I can read from an anti-JW website. I’ve attended conventions, memorials, meetings and bible studies and it’s been great to see firsthand what takes place at these events.
My in-laws have never been ones to push their faith on my Wife and I, but they have nonetheless been eager to share a magazine or two with us.
I guess my concern has always been about the need to discern the truth and as you said above, if we don’t have the basics of who God is, what hope is there?
