Keep them coming. I have some more
As a Christian, I believe in the power of the Holy Spirit. Jehovah's Witnesses do not recognize the Holy Spirit. They believe that by visiting door-to-door they are earning a higher place in heaven. They believed that they are "suffering for the cause" when people are rude or shut the door on their face. They think any kind of celebration, i.e., holidays, birthdays, etc., is wrong. Oh, by the way, if you want them to stop visiting all you have to do is say you're a Christian, Catholic, Baptist, whatever and have no intention of learning another religion. Tell them to put you on their "Do Not Visit" list (they have a list like this). They won't visit for a few months. Then they'll come back once, and ask you if you changed your mind about them visiting...tell them you haven't changed your mind-to put you back on the list, please. They should leave you alone. Try not to argue with them as these people are very well-trained to come up with an answer for anything you might say.
i think people arn't very educated about them... honestly i dont know much other then when i was younger thier church was down my street, and they were very quiet people(had a family of them that lived on our street i used to see them walking in thier sunday best to church) and knocked on our door trying to sell the word of god to us... i dont have anything against religous groups.. but when i was younger a girl who was a JW used to tell us how we're all her brothers and sisters and how her church was the center of the world and once everyone becomes a JW the world would be one big happy family and she even tried to hug us(yes that stuck with me from easily 15 years ago!) i know this isnt ho all JW's are.... honestly i think the
I think if they're right, we're all in trouble. Otherwise, interesting folks, always willing to talk and listen. I've never had a bad experience with them. Although, my Aunt, who is now a Jehovah's Witness, does try to give me way too much JW Literature that I find utterly useless. Ah, bless her though, she tries.
I respect all religious, as a catholic I am ashamed to say though that I don't go to church as often as I should, but I believe that as long as i treat people as I want to be treated, and do no harm. But I don't believe in forcing people in choosing any type of religion. You know within yourself what you believe in and which
I've got friends and some relatives that are JW's and have even attended a few meetings at Kingdom Hall. I even went to one of their Assemblies and thought it was nice that everyone regarded each other as "brother" or "sister" and was polite. The individuals of some of the Jehovah Witnesses though, well, I guess the best thing to say is that there are good and bad apples in each religion. I don't know what else to say except I don't believe in all that the JW's believe although some of the concepts are good.
I dont know much about JW, so I cant help you, sorry...
The day is still young so hopefully I will get some more. It looks like a busy board
