    Most JWs at the door are hoping you (the householder) isn't well-versed in the Bible. If you are a strong Christian and already attend a church ... they can't touch you. They will not waste time trying to convert you and quickly make haste.

    Remember they are looking for the unlettered and ordinary..... and that's okay until the unlettered and ordinary find out that the JW's are mentally unstable and believe in demons.

    From the November 1,1990 Watchtower page 26 par. 16 comes this "As Christians we face up to similar challenges today. We cannot take part in any modern version of idolatry--be it worshipful gestures toward an image or symbol or the imputing of salvation to a person or an organization". Now in the same year the Kingdom Ministry November issue on the first page under the heading "Directing Bible Students to Jehovah's Organization par. 1 states "Bible students need to get acquainted with the organization--they must appreciate that identifying themselves with Jehovah's organization is essential to their salvation". which information do we believe?

    It's too bad Buddhists don't do fs. If you asked one what you must do to be saved, they'd probably answer, "From what must you saved?"
