How to Answer Jehovah's Witnesses and Mormons
Throughout this country, non-Catholic religions are targeting Catholics with aggressive evangelizing campaigns. The Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Mormons are among the most zealous of these groups. Thousands of Catholics have left the Church to join one of these two religions.
Most Catholics are at a loss when dealing with these door-to-door evangelizers. Catholics are usually unfamiliar with their strange and confusing beliefs, which puts them at a disadvantage. Catholics often terminate the dialogue in frustration because they can’t effectively counter the arguments and claims of these groups.
The purpose of this booklet is to help Catholics identify and charitably refute the foundational doctrines of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons. Instead of getting bogged down in unimportant side issues, we show you how to focus objectively on their main beliefs. Our step-by-step approach uses Scripture, history, and common sense.
We treat basic apologetics in our first booklet, Beginning Apologetics 1: How to Explain and Defend the Catholic Faith. We strongly recommend that you read at least the first two chapters of that booklet before you read this one.
We are confident that if you study the articles in this booklet, you will be able to effectively answer the claims of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Mormons.
