Partial excerpt from article-"These well-known characteristics are true, but there are commonly held myths, too: Yes, they consider themselves Christians, but no, they do not believe that they are the only believers who can win salvation.

Hi Danny! HOW ARE YOU ? what do you beieve if you dont mind me asking? I know that you are 3 generations Jw. but do you beleive in any of the teachings or basics, any of it?
Just wondering, cause iv read some of your posts and not sure exactly what you own personal believes are and or perhaps you dont wish to share them and thats okay too, but I too was a jw, and dissasociated myself cause of the silent lambs ordeal, and it was happing in my own congreagation, but personally dont belong to any church I feel like there is no church at this time, and God, is in you sort of speak, and Jesus is in you if you beieve in him.
and the rest to me, is a big business, and the mother of it all, is you guest it, wtbts. Sad for many that dont know it yet, like sheep to the slaughter house, happy for those who see it and escape or get out of her my people. Iv seen a site you posted of yours with the pictrue of a jw in good standing and the two children he killed with the pictrue of the bible stoy book, and I couldnt believe my eyes., my heart aches to see that, it goes to show how Jehovah's spirit is not with this people, or this wouldnt happen. wright? If you have the holy spirit in you, like Jesus said, then you would have love, not killing in your heart, wright? sounds like im preaching ay, dont mean to, just love God and want to do more spread the love,,,,peace Manna

okay i just read the article and thats not true, they think that they are the only ones that will be saved they have been preaching this for years, thats why they go door to door and convert people so that they would live in paradise, if, they got baptized one of Jehvoahs witnesses. but danny we have a new idea we,
"Christian Witnessess." will baptize anyone who wishes just come on down and we will do it,,we love all you out there and we love all who love Jehovah and Jesus....peaceand love to all .....Search and you will find, seek and you will find knock and the door will be open to you..Jesus christ

You're in a highly efficient and businesslike state today, making it the perfect time to do your best at work. You could get through many more tasks than usual, without lowering your standards or cutting corners. It's an excellent day for wielding power or authority because you'll handle it very well without letting it go to your head.

I am always glad to have Witnesses knock on my door and have always done my very best to engage them in conversation. But they are always in such a hurry to move on to the next doorbell well before I'm interested in ending our conversation! I've never been certain about why that might be, but my wife has suggested it may be because of my penchant for asking questions to which they have no rational answers. I love to ask questions. I do find it fascinating that the Witnesses I've encountered at my door are as convinced as any other sect that their particular interpretation of Scripture is the correct one to the exclusion of all others and that theirs is the only interpretation that leads to eternal salvation. How did they do it? Interestingly, the Mormons who recently visited were of the same mind, but rolled their eyes at my suggestion that my recent Witness visitors had the mysteries of our existence all figured out. They then began explaining why their interpretation - not that of the Witnesses - was correct. Then came many of the same questions I'd posed to my Witness visitors, which led to the hasty, but polite, departure of my Mormon visitors. The Mormons who visited clearly don't embrace the doctrines of Witnesses and the Witnesses were equally dismissive of the doctrines of Mormons. What's a person who answers their door to do? Last summer, we were visited by some young people from Berean Baptist Church who were handing out invitations to an event at their church. When I asked how they could be so sure that their spiritual path was the right one and that those of the Witnesses and the Mormons were incorrect, they suggested I ask God for the Holy Spirit to guide me as I seek the truth contained in the Bible. I asked if it was the same Bible being used by the Witnesses and the Mormons, but they said they needed to continue handing out invitations and that they'd be happy to have their pastor visit with us to explain why they are right and the Witnesses and Mormons are wrong. I declined the offer because the Pope - a couple of popes ago - proclaimed that any religious organizations (he refused to call them "churches") outside the Catholic Church lacked the means to eternal salvation and since roughly half of all Christians are Catholic, I guess their numbers must speak volumes about their correctness. Then again, since two thirds of the earth's population is not Christian at all, maybe I'd do better not to align myself with Christianity. Then there's "Paschal's Wager" which posits that it's safer in the long run to believe in the divinity of Jesus than to not believe. The problem with that is that it presumes that beliefs are volitional, that they can be turned on and off, as if by a switch. Which brings me to the core of my dilemma. What I believe is the sum of my life of experience; all I have learned, reasoned, and analyzed. I have left no stone unturned in my search for the truth and have only learned that I have much more to learn and have come to accept that there is much that is simply unknowable. If that makes me eligible for eternal punishment there is nothing I can do to prevent it, but it sure would seem unfair, given that I never chose to come to the set of beliefs I have. It was beyond my control and therefore doesn't seem like something for which I ought to deserve eternal punishment. Christianity just confounds me!

A good salesman does not hang around speaking to people who are not going to buy.

One of the talents they have is recognizing who the suckers are.
if you want them to stick around just nod your head and smile.
