Local JW Called me Today

Seemed like a nice guy. He returned my message that I left for the memorial weeks ago. Anyway, I told him I was a JW kinda. I just wasn't ever affiliated with the organization. I said my beliefs may not be exactly like yours but we share a lot of beliefs. I expected him to bail out at that point but he asked if he could drop by and I agreed. So we set aside some time on Monday. I'm sure he'll ask me what I disagree with. I'm gonna try to keep it simple. I'd like to find a way to warn him about what's coming without scaring him off. Anybody got any ideas?

first off make a list of things you want to talk about so you don’t forget something

perhaps practice what you want to say and how you want to say it.

be very kind and loving and respectful.

when you disagree, sandwich your disagreement between two agreements- for example find something, ANYTHING, to agree about, then state your disagreement, follow it up with another agreement.

Get your bible scriptures ready, book marked.

Anticipate his questions- have answers ready.

if he appears to get uncomfortable, change the subject.

don’t interrupt- let him speak.

respect his authority even though he has none over you.

thank him a lot for his time.

Ok good. They will be warning each other about what's coming. See who is scared off first. I bet it won't be the witness unless he detects an apostate.

I'm sure you have great deterioration. May be the witness will listen to some other views. All the best with it.

Reminds me of one of my favorite sayings:

Hope in one hand and **** in the other, see which ones fills up first. :LOL:

It doesn't hurt to try but he will "detect an apostate" and then he'll be running for the door.

Tell us how it turns out Jahrule.
