Stop Debating And Start Praying

Q. My son is a Jehovah’s Witness and he wants to talk about our differences. We have gotten on the subjects of Why Jesus is God and KJV Bible vs World Translation Bible. So far we just go round and round. I’m beginning to feel it is futile to do all of this. Is the Holy Spirit the only one who can convict him? Do you have any suggestions as to what I should do?

A. I don’t believe debates of this sort are productive because we’re trying to apply logic in an emotional situation. Stop debating him and start praying for him. It’s your most powerful weapon in this matter. Study 2 Cor. 10:3-5 for encouragement.

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
