First off, good evening all. I have been having some weird stuff happen to me over the past couple of months and am wondering if anyone else has been through it or may have an idea as to why it may be happening. I have my own theory, but want to hear other opinions before I make up my mind on how to deal with this situation.
As I have written on this board before, I am fading, inactive, married to an inactive wife who has a rabid jw family. What has been going on since last year is several approaches from different Pentecostals on joining their church. Last Spring I hooked up with my cousin who is affiliated with the Assemblies of God Church and is active in a prison ministry. It had been almost ten years since our last meeting and when we talked the jw religion came up and he responded like this: "Oh, you are still involved in that." LOL Anyway, we got to talking and he told me he would pray for me and invited me to attend his church when I go to visit him down in Laguna Niguel.
This past February, almost a full week before the jw's came to invite us to the memorial. two very nice ladies stopped by and invited us to their Calvary Apostolic Church. They only knocked on my door from what I could see, as they got back in the car and drove away. Today, as I was getting down my groceries, my neighbor's mom came out and asked me if it was hot enough for me. (It was almost 90 degrees.) I told her I actually prefer it closer to 100 and we laughed. Then out of the lue she told me she wanted to invite me to her church, across from the Perko's Cafe. And gave me this:
She told me about how they sing, worship, and really enjoy Christianity.
In my entire life, no one except jw's and Mormons had ever approached me at my door about joining their church..What do you think is the cause of this?
