I swear they're like cockroaches. A car or two park in the street and it's like a clown car, they just keep coming out one after another and take off in all directions in 3s' and 4s'. I wonder why it takes 3 or 4 of them to spread their crap at one house.

I found the only effective way to rid of them is to tell them you have your own religion and thanks for stopping. Then smile and close the door in their face....because they won't give up. They have stood at the door for a few minutes after it closed.....lol
Better yet don't answer the door!

Funny, but you all have a LOT to say about what Jehovahs witnesses aint! Ok...let say you are 100% right..And they all just DISAPEAR off the planet. Lets now talk about your church. What do YOU plan on doing when you see the gang man? the drug man? the hooker girl? the war man? the drunk man? The homosexual man? the adulterous man? the teen pregnant girl? the stealing man? the wife abuser man? what has your church shown you from the bible on how to deal with those things? WITHOUT TALKING ABOUT JEHOVAHS WITNESSES....Answer those questions. Let me first say, "LIVE AND LET LIVE" is not what the christian bible, NOR christianity is supposed to do..so that answer is not gonna work. YOU HAVE THE OBLIGATION because youre calling yourselves christians...So...Tell me...What will you do?
Hello wowzers. As a Christian, I would do whatever God prompted me to do to show them the love of God. First and foremost, I would say a prayer for them, then if there was any opportunity to speak with them, this is what I would do. I would see if I could help them in any way which would be within my means. Sometimes, my means allows only for prayer. Other times I have opportunity to tell them that God loves them, give them a little cash, provide resources for help etc... The most important thing that God commands us to do for our fellow man is to show them love and this is done in many different ways.
The one thing we should never do for the least of our brothers is to turn our heads away and forget what we have seen. A Christian will show the love of God in many ways. God gives each of us gifts which we are to share in the name of Jesus. Some are blessed with money to provide monetary support, some are blessed with the gift of music, some are blessed with the time to donate their time to missionary's or places like the Salvation army etc...Myself, I believe I am blessed with the gift of 'gab'.. I will talk to anyone, anytime and pray with them no matter where I am and no matter what the circumstances.
People do different things for different people based on the gifts they are blessed with and based on what God prompts them and gives them the strength and opportunity to do.
On the other hand, the JW's do nothing for anyone outside of the members of the organization. They don't support food pantries and homeless shelters and outreach centers and other kind of christian based-help. They don't go out and open food kitchens and homeless shelters etc... I live in the ST. Louis Metro area and there are more homeless shelters and food pantries and kitchens and support centers for (anti-abortion) for pregnant teens etc.... than you could count and all run and supported by local churches, not ONE JW congregation or KH involved.. In fact, every year, a 'pro-life'(anti-abortion) chain is made through all the towns in IL and ST. Louis MO metro area and are done by ALL the churches. The only one who does not participate is the KH"s and JW's because they don't want to be associated with any other denomination even for such a good cause as a 'life chain'. They are an elitist cult. plain and simple. They use fear and mind control to keep their members in line.
May I ask, are you a JW?

Have a blessed evening.

Perhaps that is because the only ones killing their children are members of those churches. Tell me, do members of your church kill their unborn? Witnesses do not. Apparently your ministers don't do a very good job of teaching the bible or perhaps all of the hypocrites in your church don't care what it says. Save your useless prayers for yourself. Witnesses don't believe in your triune god and in fact, neither does God. Try studying the bible sometime.

I'll bet you consider yourself a Christian right? I hope you get sued. You should also sue your church for teaching people how to be idiots and gutless cowards.

No I never stated my religious belief, but JW is a cult.
A little research will tell you what their beliefs are.

If you're such a devout Christian, then why not turn the other cheek, instead of chastising people you know nothing about.

In post #748 your second sentence starts, "as a Christian". So, yes you did state your religious belief. If you're a Christian, why do you lie?

You have it wrong! I never stated that! Read it again....#748

I didn't lie, nor do I lie, but it seems you're trying to catch someone's mistake so you can act all high and mighty....get a life...as a Christian, so you profess, why don't you repent and read some verses in the bible.
I'm really not impressed......yawn

It wasn't Bizzy who said that you pompous idiot.
For a Christian you're sure looking for trouble. and while you're at it, admit you're wrong. If you're looking for a fight, pick on someone else who deserves it.

And why would I get sued? For chasing these JW's off of my property time and time again because I'm not interested in their cult? If I were to go somewhere that I'm not wanted, I don't think I'd go back there. Why would I? But these ignoramuses keep coming back and coming back and I keep telling them I'm not interested and they STILL want to hand me their Watchtower pamphlet and then, next month, the same ones are back. How many times do I have to tell them I'm not interested and never WILL be interested? When will it catch on in their domes that I don't want them sniffing around my private property?

And your religion doesn't believe in abortions? So look around and see all the mental cases walking around now because of it. They walk down the streets talking and waving and there's no one there that they're talking to or waving at. They get illegal guns and kill gas station attendants for $50.00. They sell dope, like the ones across the street from me do. They all collect welfare and social security and drain the system. And I wonder what a J/W would do if I came to their doors and preached my religion to them and left them pamphlets? Hell, they'd probably shoot and rob me before I even got close to their door!

They would scream at you that you had no wrong to come to their door as they told you to get away from their property and never come again.
They don't like it when the shoe is on the other foot. They are just as rude as they complain about what others do to them. The difference is they they think they are ENTITLED and others are not.

So which edition of the WT or Awake did you read this malarky in?... That is an outright lie.
I challenge you to find information on one Christian denomination where they support abortion. The people who are having the abortions are those who don't belong to churches. Show me proof of one person you know who claims to be a 'practicing Christian' who has had an abortion and at the time of the abortion claimed it was okay with God or that their church taught them it was okay to have an abortion.
The people who are having abortions are mostly those who have no believe system or who have not accepted Christ as their Savior yet and who do not understand what being a christian is. I am sure there are those who are Christians and who fell to sin and made a horrible choice/mistake in having abortions but that is because we are all imperfect and all fall short of the glory of God.
A sin is a sin is a sin... Abortion, molesting children, beating spouses, lying, fornicating etc... Is every member of the JW organization perfect and sinless? How do you know what the teenage girls in your congregations are doing?
You don't think that any of them would be susceptible to making mistakes? Get a clue and try to live in reality.
I don't really care whether you believe in a triune god... that is the least of your worries my friend, you need to believe that Jesus, not the WT is your way to Salvation.
I suggest you try studying a different bible without the aid of all of those comic books you call the WT and the Awake.
Let the HS help you to think for yourself instead of letting the GB and their magazines do the thinking for you.
Will you accept my challenge to prove that 'members' of the churches are the ones having the abortions?
Yes or no... that was a bold and uneducated statement for you to make, but understandably so based on the magazines you subscribe to, but now I ask you to back up your statement with respectable proof.
