How To Convert the Unholy Jehovah’s Witness to Christianity

  1. Pray and ask the Lord’s guidance that you will not rely on your own knowledge and capacity but rather in the power of the Holy Spirit.
  2. Use only acknowledged J.W. literatures preferably King James Version, New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (NWT), The Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures (KIT), and The Emphatic Diaglott. As one Christian apologist said, “That their words may be used against them.”
  3. Bring the necessary materials and remember the Bible texts so there will be no idle time in-between. This will not also allow him to focus on some other things.
  4. Address him/her by his first name to make your relationship more personal.
  5. Sit on an area where he could not be distracted by passers-by and eye-catching scenes. As much as possible, allow them to read the Scripture passages or quotations by themselves for them to store it in their minds.
  6. Speak with authority, love and compassion.
  7. If you cannot save them, condemn them to Hell for their insolence.
