I am shocked by my neighbors response to a Jehovah's Witness. SHOCKED! Now I really need to know the truth!?
PREACHER & JW: HA Ha HA HA HA HA!
PREACHER: That's a good one. But I just want to commend you for doing what you are doing. It takes a lot of guts to do what you do.
JW: Thank you. We try to follow Jesus example and go to the people to help them appreciate what the bible really says.
PREACHER: Yes, the way people are today, they lost the love of God and most have the me first attitude.
JW: That is so true. You said you really know your bible because you been a preacher for over 20 years. Do you and your church members preach as Jesus did from door to door?
PREACHER: How Long have you been preaching son?
JW: About a year and a half.
"Oh yeah"! I said. "1 and a half years? He bout to get his #&% chewed out now!" So I thought :-(
PREACHER: Well it's like this son. The lord did what he had to do back then. And yes he told us to go door to door to reach the people. But we live in a much dangerous world. We are much busier and under so much more stress and people just don't have the time or energy........
JW: That's true. The apostle Paul mentioned that critical times hard to deal with will be here.... As one of 7 million JW's throughout the earth, we try everyday to do as Jesus tell us to do. Notice I said try. It's a struggle but we try........
Preacher: Yeah Yeah that's good in all but for the rest of the world that can't, we have to come up with new and improved ways to reach the lord. Change it up...you know, twist things up a bit to fit the life styles of today.
JW: It's interesting that you use the words change and twist. I'm sure you're familiar with Deuteronomy 4:2....
Preacher: There's so many scriptures I can't recall it right now from the top of my head.
JW: Well, it mentions that you must not 'add' or 'take away' from the commandments God is commanding us. And 2 Peter 3:16 mentions the untaught and unsteady 'twist' the scriptures around to fit their own thinking. So the bible tells us to beware of these things because it will cause our own destruction. You do know this right?
PREACHER: Yes but...
JW: So if you know this, why do it? Why not teach the people the truth of the bible and let them try and make up their own mind if they want to follow it or not?
This is what floored me
PREACHER: Well son it's like this... You know, I can't answer that right now. I'm pressed for time so maybe we can continue this discussion another day. Bi now.
WHAAAAAAT! He just closed the door! He choked, backed down and closed the door. What the hell!? But that's not all. JW"S are knocking on my door almost everyday and a few weeks later I was helping my preacher neighbor take out his trash when the JW's was parking their car. And you know what Mr. preacher man did? He ran in the house and didn't even answer the door when they came to his house. Was he scared and really didn't have an answer? I look up to this man. He preach to me all the time. I want to question him about it but don't know how. What should I do? What do you make of all this? Help me please!!
I went to http://bible.cc/ and every scripture the JW mentioned was true. I need to know the truth now.
