Nope. I cringe at what I hear other people say at the door, though. I've always been friendly, respectful when people said they weren't interested, tried to be helpful instead of pushy, kept things focused on the Bible instead of Watchtowers, and actually studied Scripture so I'd have something to offer people instead of shoving someone else's idolatrous crap into their hands.
I never pushed the birthday thing, smoking thing, gambling thing, or even meeting attendance. In a nutshell, I followed Jesus' commission to preach the Kingdom and not the Watchtower's commission to preach the Watchtower. People are much more receptive to that, but JWs won't listen.
Pioneers would bad-mouth me behind my back because I didn't "deserve" to be getting all the studies I had. I didn't "deserve" all the response I got. At first, they were impressed, but quickly changed their tune when they asked my secret. "Preach the Bible," I'd tell them, "not the Watchtower. I'm a Witness and I'm not even interested in the Watchtower, so I doubt they are."
That's when they turned on me. That's when I discovered the elders, the Society, and JWs in general aren't the least bit interested in preaching for God. They only preach for the Watchtower. You have to use their writings and their doctrine; God's are relegated to a lower position or totally ignored. Maybe if I'd been more thoroughly acquainted with JW writings, I'd have seen that coming. But they don't turn the public on to that information. You have to be in before you find out they're idolaters and apostates.
The world is full of Bibles, which Book contains the commandments of God. Why, then, do the people not know which way to go? Because they do not also have the teaching or law of the mother, which is light. Jehovah God has provided his holy written Word for all mankind and it contains all the information that is needed for men in taking a course leading to life. But God has not arranged for that Word to speak independently or to shine forth life-giving truths by itself. His Word says: “Light is sown for the righteous.” (Ps. 97:11) It is through his organization that God provides this light that the proverb says is the teaching or law of the mother. If we are to walk in the light of truth we must recognize not only Jehovah God as our Father but his organization as our mother. ...Today, also, God requires and exacts from his children obedience, honor and respect. These must be rendered not only to the living God himself, but to his wifely organization as well. - w5/1/1957 p274
