Hey Steve2 I also came across JWs this past weekend in 'Metropolitan Witnessing'. It happened to be at a mall. I was about 50 feet away when I came across a card table that had literature displayed with two people sitting managing it. At first glance I thought they were selling vacation packages or cruise ship packages. Then I thought....'okay they're a green peace organization' having something to do with preserving the environment. Through a process of elimination it finally dawned on me that they were JWs!
No I didn't approach them to say "Hi"! I wasn't about to ruin my fun-day with JWs inviting me to visit their JW.org website.
But what amazed me more than anything is how unfruitful, unproductive, ineffective this form of Bible Education is! These people were like bumps-on-a-log. It was totally a waste of time. No body shopping or visiting the mall were giving these JWs the time of day!
I couldn't help but think of Jesus words at Mat 21:19: 'He (Jesus) caught sight of a fig tree by the road and went to it, but he found nothing on it except leaves, and he said to it: "Let no fruit come from you ever again." And the fig tree withered instantly.'
Likewise with this Metropolitan Witnessing program like many other ventures that the WT has tried; I look forward to the day when this 'card table witnessing' withers away.....instantly!
