    Hello again, dear brother Timothy. I do have a few more questions for dear brother Bercot regarding John 1:1 and he is definitely the ideal person for these questions.

    When Jehovah Witnesses come to our door, is it worthwhile to discuss the translation of John 1:1 in the “New World Translation” that they quote from? Or will such a discussion just lead to an unfruitful argument? How much of their theology regarding the Trinity hinges upon the translation of John 1:1 in the “New World Translation”, especially the phrase “and the Word was a god”? Were you challenged a lot regarding the translation of John 1:1 when you used to go door-knocking as a Jehovah Witness? I am searching for wisdom regarding the best way to handle this point.
