Wow. No need to think for yourself, let someone do it for you.

Ask yourself "how did I come to know what I know"

Don't ask how a thing was done, but why?

No, that's something that we can't do. Jesus gave his followers a commission to go to the people of all nations, to teach them.

Now if you were to put up a sign, "No Jehovah's Witnesses" or even "No Tresspassing", then we would couldn't get on your porch. We wouldn't even come in the yard.

My porch is my private property not a public place you can feel a need to express you **Free Speech** rights. Much of what you preach is out-of-dated such as the **two witnesses** died in 1914. Wrong they have not died yet. Your not refined. You preach out-of-dated material. Christ will not punish anyone for ignoring you or the Watchtower and Awake. If you can't respect a "NO SOLICITING" sign what else will you not respect when **NO** is the answer?

Legally, "No Soliciting" is a grey area for many. If a door to door vacuum cleaner salesman sees it, he is selling something for money. That sign would apply to him.

But if someone comes by to encourage their neighbor, and there is no sales involved, then the sign doesn't always apply. It's up to the individual. It depends on how they read that sign.

Sound like those lawyers that know all the tricks to get what they want. So my molesters can come to my door on that flimsy excuse that gets them onto the people's private property - if your neighbor can encourage you so can Jehovah's Witnesses. Tricks of the tade.

BTW.. Where did you get the name Mardana?.. You know Mardana is a men's clothing store here in the City.

It is one of my favorite places to shop. East Indians actually own it.
