Jehovah’s Witness At The Door
March 16, 2008 23 Comments
Yesterday I was visited by a couple Jehovah’s Witnesses. They were older men, probably in their late 50’s or early 60’s. They were very nice and well dressed (both were in suits).
They were out in my neighborhood passing out literature and inviting people to a special event that were having were they could “share what they believe about Jesus“. They did not tell me they were JW’s but the literature was printed by the Watch Tower Society. I thanked them for the invitation and told them that I was a member of First Baptist and served as a deacon there. They asked me to read the material anyway to see what they believed. I told them that I had some knowledge of what they believed and did not need to read their literature to find out. At this point their attitudes changed, they were not rude but clearly did not want to discuss anything. I was hoping for an opportunity to discuss some things with them. They politely asked me for their literature back so they could “give it to someone else” and they left.
This is the first time I have been visited by JW’s. I wonder if they will come back and take time to discuss some things with me. It has been sometime since I studied the specifics of what they teach so I may take so time to review a few things just in case.
Have any of you has the opportunity to discuss your faith with JW’s? If so, how did it go. Was it something you would do again?
