the j.w. should be required to tell their i.d. and also carry cards around their neck with a police permit.

When knocking on doors I believe one should say " I am here in the name of Jehovah to tell you the good news of the Kingdom..and bear witness to Jesus Christ'

you know I got into trouble for doing that..

i asked why? what was wrong with letting people know whose name I come in

I was told , " if you mention Jehovah , they will shut the door on you", they proceeded to tell me to first get the persons confidence with small talk..about the garden or the weather.

I said ' i don't come on doors to talk about the weather, I come to preach good-news of the kingdom.'

"A resident of Montclare Boulevard called police Jan. 23 after a woman knocked on her door, but wouldn't say what she wanted.

A report said the older woman, who arrived in a van carrying three other people, came to the door about 1:45 p.m."

__________

"A short time later, the driver of the van called police and said they were Jehovah's witnesses, but said they don't have to tell homeowners that when they visit."

If JW's identified themselves as such when the homeowner opend the door it would be shut shortly thereafter.

Most people in North America know that JW's are a cult and want nothing to do with them.

I never got councelled on it in fact people imitated that including elders ans ms.

How would a householder know if the person knocking on the door is a jw imposture, with bad intentions? If the jw is legitamate and is damaged or harmed in any way the wtbts wil not indemnify that person ,they/wtbts feel you are not one of their agents,therefore no id tags. The wtbts says you are volunteering to peddle their goods. It is a lose lose situation,the wtbts believes you proceed at your own risk! Pretty slick organization!

Preaching door to door is using God's word the Bible as our authority, if someone doesn't want to listen to a Scripture, so be it.

Your listening is all that is required for Jesus to judge you today, we don't force anyone to listen to us, for Jesus said,(Matthew 10:14, 15). . .Wherever anyone does not take YOU in or listen to YOUR words, on going out of that house or that city shake the dust off YOUR feet........ Your own free will dictates your heart condition, we are just being used by Jesus to speak God's word.

You are being judged today by how you accept the fact that Jesus is reigning as King of kings in heaven, and whether you will be an obedient subject of that Kingdom or not. That Kingdom rules in righteousness, and no one will be allowed to live in God's new world who does not obey the Law of Christ. John 3:36

The fact is, unless an individual is educated in the Law of Christ, which does not make anyone a true Christian, it is only the effort a person makes to obey and imitate Jesus, that Jehovah God blesses.
John 3:36 1Peter 2:21

Anyone can get baptized and say they are Jehovah's witness, a true J.W. is the person who has a productive ministry and is also obedient to all the directions of the brothers of Christ, in the world wide family of Jehovah God.

Then why didn't the person knocking on the door just say all that? Why the secrecy? It is so bad now days that to open the door to a stranger is foolish, surely JWs realize that older woman was asking for her own safety. For the JW not to answer her, was cruel on their part.

You do not go door to door for Jesus, Jesus does not require that of you, what he requires is your belief in him as your Savior. You go door to door because a religion requires that of you. Being an obedient Christian requires you believe the Gospel of Jesus Christ. He was born of a virgin, he lived and preached the word of His Father. He died so that WHOSEOVER Believes in HIM, could obtain eternal life, and he was risen on the third day. He did not die so that a certain religion, or organization would be saved, but that ANYONE AND EVERYONE WHO TRULY BELIEVES IN HIM WOULD gain eternal life. So says the bible.

You are adding works for salvation, it does not work that way. YOu are saved first, you believe, truly believe in JESUS First, then you tell others about what you have found.

Show me where in the bible it says, that Jehovah's family is Jehovah witnesses. Don't use the scripture that says you are my witnesses, because thats only the scripture that Rutherford used to name your religion, it does not prove that the religion is the true one. Truth is in the bible, not in literature of men. What we should be telling the people at the doors is not about a religion, but about Jesus.

Jesus cannot save you or anyone today. Your life depends on your obedience to the direction or instructions from God's word to people living in these last days of this unrighteous world.
Matthew 24:37,38

Unless you are obedient in following the directions for your protection during the great tribulation you will not survive the end of this world.

The wicked or those who refuse to obey, but who like their own way of finding salvation and their own beliefs in Jesus will stay stubborn right to the end.
Revelation 22:10,11

That's why the new covenant Jesus inaugurated is so important, because God ACTS on the ONE who is obedient to Jesus teachings..and it becomes a bond with God as he carries out his promises, on those exercising [obeying] his Christ Jesus.

Trying to obey gods word without letting the BLOOD of Jesus forgive us our sins, is just being in the same condition as the original Jews, trying to obey gods Law in our own efforts..without his spirit to help us.

So let me get this straight. First, you want every man who is enticed by a woman to wash their testicles in muriatic acid. You did say that right? That's pretty extreme, and hard to get a read on, other than you hate girls. I get that, ok.

Then you told me you wanted me to drink your urine. Is that correct? I thought you might be perverse with that. You didn't say that you should wash your privates with muriatic acid before you fed me your urine. Yuck, just how did you want me to ingest it? The thought is pretty gross.

Now this. You want to whip SOS butt with a stick. But that's not it. You want his butt to be dirty, as in not washed for a month. Again, no mention of muriatic acid. Just what kind of a stick do you want to use? Your own? Mr Camping must be so proud. Gay is ok. Deal with it, and in time you might be able to get a boyfriend. It will take a lot of time, and a team of doctors, but you can do it.

We don't want slackers. We attract the healthy, energized people of the future. Our organization is 70% under 30 years of age. We sure don't need you to drag along to meetings so you can get some association. You are a home bound individual....Not even a functioning person.
