Notice the descriptions Paul uses:
- able to teach
- not resentful
- gently instruct
- in hope
You will get nowhere if you fall into an emotional quarrel with these folks. When it goes that direction, excuse yourself humbly from the conversation.
As Paul says, "Don't have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments."
"Because they produce quarrels," he says.
But Paul doesn't say we're supposed to abstain from talking about our faith. Talk with them if:
- the spirit of the conversation is a true search for truth
- someone comes to you & asks, "Why do you believe what you believe?"
So, do your homework on Jehovah's Witnesses and be prepared to have a civil conversation about your faith.
