Since I am among witnesses, I am sure that most of you had more than one door slammed to your face. I have not had that experience, yet I think it must be awful to walk the streets knowing full well that most people aren't remotely interested in what you have to say, and will probably mistreat you. Yet, I think I can share the other side of the coin.
I believe that one of the many reasons whyh door-to-door preaching fails is the fact that, even if you're willing to listen to the person, very quickly you realize that the questions and the material presented to you are all organized so you can only say "yes" to whatever the witness says. For example, the classic: "See how bad the world is. Would you like to live in Paradise Earth?" Of course the answer has to be "yes". But then, you get the goosebumps of sort of feeling that if you keep saying "yes", you don't know where you will end up. So you end the conversation.
But if they don't do that, then the witnesses can't have you where they want you.
Just commenting. Would love to hear opinions on this.
