One of the things I have learned in witnessing to Jehovah’s Witnesses is the necessity of providing a positive presentation of your beliefs. The reason being, you can spend hours explaining the false predictions of the Watchtower to a JW, but the response will often be, “So what? Where else am I going to go? No other organization has proven to be God’s sole channel.” Where does this attitude come from? One can point to many places in Watchtower literature, but one of the primary Scriptures a JW will use is John 6:68,
*** w92 11/15 p. 21 par. 12 Serve Jehovah Loyally ***
12 We will be impelled to serve Jehovah loyally with his organization if we remember that there is nowhere else to go for life eternal. When Jesus’ statements caused ‘many disciples to go off to the things behind,’ he asked his apostles: “You do not want to go also, do you?” Peter replied: “Lord, whom shall we go away to? You have sayings of everlasting life; and we have believed and come to know that you are the Holy One of God.”—John 6:66-69.
Notice the contrast between Peter’s words and the Watchtowers:
The Watchtower: Where shall we go?
Peter: To whom shall we go?
Peter’s application is personal. His loyalty was with Christ, not an organization. Thus, to ask “where shall we go?” is looking for the truth in all the wrong places. Our task should not be to point the JW to our church, but to the person of Jesus Christ to salvation. It is simply amazing how the Watchtower misses Peter’s point. In John 6, the emphasis is on Jesus for eternal life. But for the Watchtower, one must go to the organization for eternal life.
