Just yesterday a friend and I were sitting outside a restaurant, hanging out and catching up on life. A half hour into our conversation, a young man walked right by us and gave me a long glare, staring at the Bible in front of us. A few minutes later, he walked by again with the same drawn-out stare. The third time this happened, I smiled at the young man and slightly nodded my head in a gesture of kindness. He took the invitation, walked right up to us, and blurted out the question: “Hey, can you guys tell me the difference between what a Jehovah’s Witness believes and what a Christian believes?”
As it turns out, this young man James grew up in an evangelical church but was recently exposed to Jehovah’s Witness theology through a family member. He didn’t know how to navigate through many of the questions this family member raised.
What would you say to James? How would you answer his question?
I share this story with you in order to highlight one of the hidden gems on the Blue Letter Bible website: a list of cult resources.
At Blue Letter Bible, it is always our desire to serve the Body of Christ by providing free and easy-to-use Bible study tools and resources. Because of the demand for information exposing various cults, we offer a few online resources on Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormonism. These tools are meant to serve you well in defending your faith and sharing the good news of Jesus Christ to your neighbors or your friends or perhaps even for a “chance encounter” with a young stranger like James.
