My Candid Correspondence With a Jehovah’s Witness

A Real Conversation

J.L. Pattison

--

Not too long ago I received a letter in the mail from a Jehovah’s Witness. It was a form letter, the envelope addressed to a generic “neighbor.”

I opened the envelope and the typed letter inside encouraged me to reach out to the sender to learn more about God’s Kingdom. So, I did just that, via email, but the sender of the letter kept wanting to get out of the conversation. Now I’m going to share that correspondence with you.

What follows is my correspondence with this Jehovah’s Witness, copied and pasted below—including original grammar/spelling issues—with the only change being to the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ name to protect her identity.

If you’ve ever wanted a peek behind the scenes of a Jehovah’s Witnesses tactics and polemics, then without further ado, I present to you My Candid Correspondence With a Jehovah’s Witness.

Greetings, Maria.

I recently received a letter from you in the mail regarding what you referred to as God’s kingdom, and you said that you hoped someday to talk with me about it. Thank you for taking the time to write me. You can now correspond with me via this email if you should so desire.

Sincerely,

- JL

Hello, JL.

Thank you for your interest in my letter, regarding the Kingdom of God; I hope you have an interest in this subject, because I find it to be of some importance given the condition of the world as of late.

Mankind was given a paradise home at the creation, with the hope of everlasting life and perfect health. However, that was lost . Genesis 3:17–19 shows how this has affected mankind down to this day.

But God’s Kingdom will replace all manmade rule and then it alone will stand for ever. This is brought out in Daniel 2:44. So, when will God’s Kingdom begin to rule over the earth? We, can not give a specific date but there are a certain group of events that will happen all at once , and when they happen we will know that the Kingdom of God is near. These events are told about in Luke 21:30 & 31.

Please take a moment of your time to go to the website… jw.org. There you can
