Our recent conversation with two Jehovah's Witnesses perfectly illustrates the necessity of reaching out to those lost in non-Christian cults. This part of the conversation was just about an hour into the dialogue. Pay attention to the blatant disregard to the actual statements by the Lord Jesus.

In the end, everything comes down to a worldview level. In other words, Jehovah's Witnesses clearly do not get their theology from an exegesis of the actual text of Scripture. They have presuppositionally ruled out the truths of Scripture ahead of time.

Case in point. In the audio clip, I quote a portion of Scripture where the Lord Jesus promises to raise Himself up. This would include two truths that the Watchtower denies:

1. That Jesus was raised in the same body.
2. That Jesus raised Himself

Notice how the Jehovah's Witness cannot make sense out of the text because he has a precommitment to a different view of the Lord Jesus. Because of His views, he is forced in the end to say that Jesus "lied". On the one hand, he wants to agree with Scripture... and on the other he is forced to deny it.

Jesus answered them, "Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up." (John 2:19)
