Greetings to all and I hope those effected by the blizzard of 2013, NEMO, are doing ok. I live in Rhode Island and am all plowed and shoveled out and fortunately, didn't lose power during the storm. Many were not so fortunate.
I was surprised that JWs came to my door today. I was glad I had put ice melt on my walkway and steps, for they were safe! It was two females again and all they said was that they wanted to leave a magazine with me. I asked them if all JWs believe that Jesus is the Christ and they said, " Yes, of course they do!" I then asked them if they had a Bible on them and if not I could get mine so that I could share a Scripture with them. They did have their Bibles with them so I asked them to read 1John 5:1 out loud and one of them did.
1 John 5:1 NWT: 5 Everyone believing that Jesus is the Christ has been born from God, and everyone who loves the one that caused to be born loves him who has been born from that one.
I then asked that since they said that all JWs believe that Jesus is the Christ, then ALL JWs are born from God then, right? For Scripture that you just read states that EVERYONE believing that Jesus is the Christ is born from God." There was a long uncomfortable silence from both of them and one finally broke the silence by asking me if I would like a "mature Jehovah's Witness" to visit me. I asked them if they believe what the Bible says about EVERYONE believing that Jesus is the Christ and neither one of them would answer the question, but rather asked me AGAIN if I wanted a "mature Jehovah's Witness" to visit me. I said yes, that I'd like that and asked them how long they have been JWs. One has been a JW for 3 years and the other one for 34 years. So I asked the one who said she has been a JW for 34 years why she isn't a "mature Jehovah's Witness". She giggled uncomfortably and said she would send someone else to my door. I smiled, wished them a good day and they went to my neighbors house. My neighbors all know about most of the beliefs of the JWs from me, thank the Lord. So they won't get sucked into the JW sect. And I don't expect a visit from any other JW, mature or not, until the next time they work this territory. The SAME thing happened the last time two JWs came to my door and nobody ever came after they said someone would. At least I may have set them into thinking mode. I pray that they go Jesus the Christ and receive Him!
