Two Jehovah’s Witnesses are walking down a narrow alley in the inner-city. They come face to face with two Mormon missionaries. The alley is so narrow that one pair will have to allow the other pair to pass. One of the two Mormon missionaries puffs out his chest and declares, “We will not step aside for false teachers.” The Jehovah’s Witnesses in unison both step aside and reply, “We will.”
The most interesting part about that joke is that I have heard it told both ways. When Mormons tell it, it is about the Jehovah’s Witnesses. I tell that joke because it is good to be proficient in more than one cult group. It is wise to be prepared to speak to Jehovah’s Witnesses about Mormonism and vice-versa because you can often make a point about the other religion that would never be accepted if you applied it directly to the religion of the person to whom you are speaking. We leave it up to the Holy Spirit to make the connection.
Tonight begins four weeks of teaching on the Jehovah’s Witnesses. We will discuss the basics tonight. In the coming weeks, Keith will do a role play on how to answer the attacks of the Watchtower on the resurrection and deity of Jesus Christ.
