When a Jehovah's Witness
comes to your door, answer it!

But don't let them in your house--

2 John 1:10-11, If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Jehovah's Witness

I was just sitting here working on the site when the doorbell rang. I figured it was UPS and looked out the window. I saw a man in a suit so I figured it was some one with a "religious" affiliation. My hair's a mess but I went down anyway because I didn't want to miss the opportunity to talk to someone about the Lord Jesus.

When I opened the door there were two men in suits. An elderly man stood back on the steps while a younger man, not quite middle-aged, stood on my doorstep. The conversation between me and the younger man went something like this:

Me: Hello, may I help you?

Gentleman: Yes, we are passing out some information. (He shows me some "Awake" magazines)

Me: So you're Jehovah's Witnesses. I'm a Christian.

Gentleman: (He shows me an Awake magazine with dollar bills on the cover of it.) Then you know what the true riches are?

Me: All riches are found in Christ Jesus. You don't believe Jesus rose from the dead do you?

Gentleman: We believe He rose and was seen on the earth for a while and went to heaven.

Me: But you don't believe His human BODY rose from the dead, do you?

Gentleman: (He nervously looks at his watch.) Well, we can't discuss all that in 30 seconds, we'll have to sit down with you about that...You know we've been going from door to door for many years, don't you think that means God has annointed us?

Me: [Longevity] doesn't mean anything, the Catholic religion has been going for hundreds of years and it is not of God.

Gentleman: So you agree that the Catholic religion is not of God. I used to be Catholic.

Me: The Catholic religion is the biggest cult in the world. I know that you [JWs] are against it. The Jehovah Witnesses is a cult too. I'm a Bible believer. I don't need the Watchtower or any other organization to tell me about the things of God. I KNOW that I have eternal life (the JWs don't know for sure) because I John says, "These things are WRITTEN that ye may KNOW that ye have eternal life". The Bible has everything I need to know and I don't need anything extra. I hope that your eyes will be opened and you'll be saved.

(Gentleman extended his hand, I shook it and we gave parting words)
[Update: I should not have shook his hand.]

Every Christian needs to open the door for these people and give them something to think about so that they can be saved. I feel very sorry for them because they are wasting their time and the wrath of God is on them for they deny His Son.

On the outside they talk like they are Christians, but when you dig a little deeper you see that they deny the biggies--they say God is not a trinity, Jesus Christ is not God, Jesus Christ did not physically rise from the dead, there is no literal hell, etc. They are blasphemers that go around snatching up unlearned people and bringing them into their blasphemy.

Don't tell these people, "God bless you," because the Bible says that if you do that that you are partaker of their evil deeds. Just think about it, it's true. If you say, "God bless you" you are saying, "I hope the Lord helps you to spread more blasphemy and snare more souls." JWs and other cultists need to hear the truth and you, the Christian, can share it with them. Go to our section on cults to find out about JWs and other cultists. And make sure you study your Bible. That way, when you meet these folks, you can effectively give them the truth.
