Then you went with them on their "study", and it was with some dimwitted person who could barely tie their shoes? Or some single parent woman with 5 kids living in a shack? Or some lonely older person that just wants a "friend" to talk to?
I've been on all these types of calls, and really hated it. It was obvious most of these people just wanted someone to talk to, and they'd constantly change the subject to something that WAS NOT about religion at all. I used to be cracking up in my head on these types of "calls"... Just totally ridiculous. My grandma used to call on an old guy in her town that just wanted to talk to someone, and he'd talk forever, about old times, his kids, etc. Then she'd go on and on about some scripture that are LOOSELY related.
There was one woman in my old hall, a "pioneer", used to run magazines to people and all she'd do is talk to them about their family, or the weather and then at the very end she'd say, "Oh and here's your latest copy of the magazines"
