Last week I was invited by a sister to go in the field ministry with her. I did, because she is one of the 2 people who contacted me since I am not attending the meetings.
And I thought it would be a good opportunity to tell her about some of the things I researched.
While she was preaching I stood aside and watched people's reaction. A person she spoke with was a theologian, the other one was clearly a member of a reformed church. They did not raise any issues, just listened to the sister's small "talk", smiled, took the magazine, said thank you and that was it.
I wonder if people are taking them seriously any more ... or maybe they know by now where jw's are coming from and see there is no point in having an indeep religious conversation ... or maybe they just don't know how to defent their own faith, themselves ...
Maybe it is just my new perspective, but I felt like it was a waste of time and that people are looking at them like preaching a cult, not the word of God, which is kind of true.
