The latest August Kingdom Ministry contains this little gem:
" ....show how to handle the potential conversation stopper "I'm not interested in Jehovah's Witnesses".
Um......... anybody remember that guy Jesus, who started the whole idea of Christian preaching, giving instructions on how to preach?
Like "casting pearls before swine" or shaking the dust off your feet if "a place will not receive you nor hear you"? ( Mark 6:11)
Could anything be more specific than saying "I'm not interested in Jehovah's Witnesses"? Perhaps some greater measure of rejection
is required so as to avoid referring to the Reasoning book, like:
"I'm not interested in Jehovah's Witnesses because they cover up child molesters, break up families and have been defrauding
the public for 120 years and if you don't leave now, I'm going to disembowel you and feed your entrails to my dogs"
Would that be enough? Or should we plan another demonstration (Reasoning book topic: "Conversation Stoppers, when the householder
is angry enough to use your body for sausage, Sweeney Todd style)? Is this situation like a rape in which the victim keeps saying
"No, No" but you know better? Is there any holy spirit involved in trying to force your message on people who are opposed
or is this all about SALESMANSHIP - and not "preaching" at all?
At what point, does the word cult seem appropriate for a bunch of zealots, who give no thought to how annoying they are trained to
be - and who are schooled to ignore outright refusal?
