I thought i might have been placed on the do not call list, but apparently, it was just one pesron that chose not to stop at my house her last time down our street. I was surprised more came this close to the last visit! (they need to work on their territories/organization, lest people really become annoyed and feel harrassed with 2 visits in a row.)
Anyhoo, it was 2 older ladies, in their seventies. The one was clearly the leader. First off, she hits me with the divine name. I made a few points like God has various names in the bible, and why did the WT put it in NWT when it is none of the over 5,000 Greek manuscripts. She claimed it was. whatever. yawn. But she moved on to other topics quickly. Read me a verse from Isaiah.
I inquire about the latest definition for "generation" given at the convention, and were they aware of the previous 6? You will never believe what her answer was?.......NEW LIGHT! I replied that new light means you know more about something, not change it to something contradictory, etc. Mentioned the "new light" on immunizations and organ transplants, and we're talking here about issues that have killed people, so 'new light' doesn't do it for me. The leader lady was getting kind of mad, but the other lady looked really startled, and i knew she was hearing stuff she never heard before.
Leader changes subject to JW being God's organization because they teach Biblical doctrines that no one else does. I said, oh yah, Jesus chose them in 1919, right? I mentioned just a few of the things they were teaching at that time, as well as what they really predicted for 1914. They denied it, and said where do you get this stuff? I said from your own history. She said no, i'm sure you get this from 'books' (The word "books" pronounced with a sneer). I said, well, yah, i know you'd be in trouble if you looked at 'contrary' information. She denied that outright. I said a lot of it is in the WT literature, would you like me to show you? She said no. I said, well come back ANY TIME, and i'll show you. ANd i was mostly looking at the other lady, who wasn't saying much.
Then she handed me the latest WT, and said they had to go now.
Oh, ps, also mentioned that WT literature said you'd be led astray into aspotate thinking if you studied the Bible without the "Channel." They said that's not true, offered to show them, they said no.
