A disabled friend of mine needed a ride today to an appointment, while I was sitting in my van reading the newspaper waiting for my friend a older woman walked up to my window. I had in down 5 or 6 inches because I was smoking a cigg. I could see that she had her bag full of watchtowers and awakes and so I said you must be a jehovah's witness ?
She said yes I am so I told her that I had my own faith and that I disagreed with her religion. She said what do you disagree with ? So I told her how the scriptures explains that when someone prophecies in Gods name that they will come true if they are indeed from God. And how the society had done so many times and they never came true. She asked me what kind of prophecies did they make and I mention several dates from the 1800's up to 1975.
She said to me well I can see you have done your homework and I said yes I have done lots of research on thier religion. I then told her how the society had change words in the scriptures to fit their doctrine and that I had communicated with several bible scholars without mentioning and bible name or religion and I had been warned about the NWT. She said well other translations altered the bible too and I said how's that ? She said well they took Jehovah out of the bible and I said no they society just added it to the bible.
Then she looks away from me and says well my friends are waiting for me so I better go. I said well thanks for the discussion and she said well I can see that you know your bible pretty good and that I am not going to be able to change you and I replied NOPE ! I said I love the Lord and I read my scriptures everyday. She walked away stunned I could tell and so I wished her with Gods blessings and she left.
For the first time since coming out in 2001 I awaited for this opportunity and I finally got to get a piece in on a witnoid, and someone i did not know as a witness. It was different than trying to discuss with family because there were no ties or bonds and speach was free. That was way cool I hope someday I will see her here......
