As Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the archbishop of Buenos Aires, Francis “has had a warm relationship with the Jewish community of Argentina, and enjoyed close friendships with many prominent rabbis,” said Rabbi David Rosen, international director of interreligious affairs at the American Jewish Committee.

“We welcome Pope Francis I to his new role as leader of the Catholic Church,” B’nai B’rith International President Allan J. Jacobs said in a statement. “Catholic-Jewish relations had remained a focus of Pope Benedict XVI and we look forward to continuing the solid foundation that already exists for interfaith dialogue.”

Other Jewish leaders and scholars noted that Francis’ relatively advanced age — 76 — is important to the Jewish community, in that the Holocaust™ happened during his lifetime and can conjure memories for him of the horrors to which antisemitism can lead.

Jews Worldwide See an Ally in Pope Francis

“Those who said Benedict was the last pope who would be a pope that lived through the Shoah™, or that said there would not be another pope who had a personal connection to the Jewish people, they were wrong,” said Rabbi David Rosen.

ACCORDING TO THEIR OWN FIGURES, there are more than three million Jehovah’s Witnesses world-wide, with branch offices in more than 200 countries. They have made extensive inroads in Third World countries, attracting the poverty-stricken and theologically naive with their insistence that “this system of things” (the corrupt and unjust world as it is now) is about to give way to the “New Order” (the millennium). Elsewhere, they have gained converts through their aggressive door-to-door witnessing.

Indeed, a former member of the cult has called it “the most effective way of error today.”

Anyone who has had more than a passing encounter with Jehovah’s Witnesses would find it hard to disagree. Their arguments appear so tightly constructed as to be virtually unassailable. Even if one is left unconquered, the experience is frustrating. Is this a no-win situation? It needn’t be. But any hope of launching a successful counter-offensive and rescuing the Jehovah’s Witness from his captivity to error lies in a basic understanding of the cult’s tactics and its fundamental beliefs.

(A Capture of) The Main Page of the Site in Question

 

I was referred to this website a while ago: Bible.ca

Apparently, it’s operated by the so-called ‘Churches of Christ’ (19th century Restorationist movement of Alexander Campbell and Barton Stone). They are basically just another sect of ‘Sola Scriptura’ Protestants who claim to follow the Bible only… Any other extra-Biblical traditions (aside from their own of course) are derided, and the authority of the Church from whence the Bible came is expressly denied.
Anyhow, there’s a page on that site: … Irrefutable Questions That Roman Catholics and Orthodox Can’t Answer… On that page there are 29 questions.­­
Some of them are (to me at least) virtually unintelligible… but here for your perusal are the questions followed by  my answers (to most of them anyway)…
