They usually come around about once every 2 years, but bypass my house, because of being on the list of local apostates i guess. Plus, i live in unasigned territory, so when they do come around, theyre usually not local. So i was quite surprised when two women and a man (middle age) showed up about 2 months ago. I happened to be home wich is even more rare, and spotted them comming up the driveway. So i met them at the porch steps, and let him go through most of the presentation, then, i asked him if i could use his bible. He looked a little puzzled, then said ok, so i turned to Romans, and showed him the verse "there is none righteous, no not even one" and asked him if he thought we could merit gods forgiveness, or mercy. He said "i guess not" and then i proceeded to show him several other scriptures, hammering home the idea of grace, as opposed to works. After the first scripture, i had complete control of the conversation. I had his bible, and was looking up all the scriptures. He slipped the magazines back in his briefcase, and impatiently waited for a break, so he could make a run for it. The people in the car were getting impatient as well.
Then my neighbor invited him in, and asked him if he could name the 7 names of Jehovah. He couldnt (most of them cant) and my neighbor named off about 4 or 5 of them, and told him to wait right there while he got a tract that named them. When he returned, the JW was gone. Vanished. He told me about it later, and asked me if that was normal, them running off.
Most of you probably know the 7 fold name of Jehovah (old testament) but ill put them here for those that dont. Its a real good way to show them when they come to your door how much they really know about the book they claim to know so much about.
