People ask for help and ask what is the best Bible verse on how to talk to Jehovah’s Witnesses, how to talk to Mormons, and how to talk with Muslims? Which is the best Bible verse on how to witness to Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and Mulsims will be in part what you are familiar with on what they believe, and your approach with them. How to witness to Jehovah’s Witnesses, how to witness Mormons, and how to witness to Muslims can be a challenge. What I wish to offer is a simple and straight forward approach in how to talk with Jehovah’s Witnesses, with Mormons, with Muslims, etc. Christians need to remember that those who are Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Muslims, and others have a works based gospel, and have been deceived with a false gospel of works. Christians need to share the true gospel in a loving and compassionate way, and refute false teachings and doctrines.
The best Bible verse or verses I like to use is in Romans 10:9-13, which talks about the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, being saved by faith, and the Deity of Jesus as being LORD (Jehovah). These are the some of the best Bible verses to share when talking and witnessing to those in non Christian Cults and false religions. Some believe the best Bible verse or verses are Ephesians 2:8-9, John 3:16-18, Luke 24:44-47, and others. The best approach is knowing what you believe, being ready and in prayer, and share the best Bible verse you are comfortable with.
Years ago I remember Ray Comfort, Living Waters ministry, doing a video on witnessing to Jehovahs Witnesses. Ray Comfort shared how to witness with Jehovah’s Witnesses in 3 minutes! In that video Ray Comfort talked about asking the Jehovah’s Witness how he (Ray Comfort) could be saved if he only had 3 minutes to live, what would he or she (Jehovah’s Witness) share with him? This is a very good presentation on how to share the heart of the gospel with Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Muslims, and other false religions. The Bible is clear on how a person can be saved, and there are many Bible verses that can use shared when talking with Jehovah’s Witnesses, to Mormons, to Muslims, and how to witness to others in various Cults.
I remember talking with some Jehovah’s Witnesses about this and if I only had 3 minutes to live, what would they say to me on how to be saved? How can I know Jesus Christ personally, have God’s grace, know eternal life, and assurance that when I died that I will be with the Lord? Jehovah’s Witnesses do not know the grace of God, the grace of salvation, and they do not know that eternal life is a gift of God by grace. Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Muslims, and others have been taught to believe that salvation, eternal life, is by doing works, and that being saved is based upon what they do (works) rather than what Jesus did for them (Ephesians 2:8-9).
One of my favourite or best Bible verse (verses) I wish will share that I believe will help those seeking ways to share the gospel. One of my go to verses I share when talking with Jehovah’s Witnesses or Mormons is Romans 10:9-13. Romans 10:9-13 teaches being saved by grace not works, calling upon Jesus as Lord, and the Deity of Jesus Christ as being LORD Jehovah YHWH.
1. Romans 10:9-10 talks about Jesus’ death and resurrection.
2. Romans 10:9-10 talks about confessing and believing in Jesus as Lord for salvation.
3. Romans 10:9-10 teaches that salvation, God’s grace, is by believing in your heart that Jesus died and rose again, confessing with your mouth that Jesus is Lord.
4. Romans 10:11-12 teaches that everyone who believes in Him, Jesus, will be saved.
5. Romans 10:11-12 teaches that salvation is for all those who call upon Him, Jesus.
6. Romans 10:13 teaches that everyone that calls upon the name of the LORD, Jehovah, YHWH, will be saved.
7. Romans 10:13 teaches the Deity of Jesus Christ, that Jesus is LORD, Jesus is Jehovah, YHWH, and Paul was referencing Joel 2:32 being fulfilled in Jesus as LORD.
I recommend also sharing Ephesians 2:8-9 on salvation by grace not works when witnessing with Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, and also Muslims. Another one I recommend for talking with Mormons is 1 John 5:10-13 on knowing they have eternal life by believing in Jesus, that it is not of works. I believe one of the best bible verses for Muslims is Luke 24:44-47. That is the issue with those in Cults and religions is grace vs works for salvation. Grace vs works is what separates those who are saved in Jesus Christ and those who are deceived with a false gospel.
I hope this information on how to witness to those in Cults such as the Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, Muslims, etc. has been helpful and useful for you.
