Jehovah’s Witness at my Door: What to Say
Show Notes

For a number of years, the Jehovah’s Witnesses would infrequently come up our long driveway to visit my wife (while I was at work). She was very kind and accommodating, talking at their car and eventually having them into the house for extended discussions (typically one would remain in the car and two would come in). My wife is very well-founded in her Biblical Christian faith. She is just a warm and friendly person and saw this as an opportunity to listen and offer her own views on her faith, as so many others do when Jehovah’s Witness are at the door and we start wondering what to say.

Obviously, this direct approach was outside their normal door-to-door experiences and I know, on the surface, it does not show Christian hospitality, much less, love. However, consider the deeper truth of my point. As Jehovah’s Witnesses spend their time spreading false teachings to those weak in the faith, their rhetoric is Hell-bound. Scripture offers the theological concept of righteous indignation, shown by Jesus while turning the tables of the money changers. To me, directly teaching people how to go to Hell, rather than Heaven, supports a biblical basis for anger and directness as much or more than commerce conducted in the outer temple court. Perhaps Christians have been too passive and fearful as we have watched this country depart from its roots. The next time you see the Jehovah’s Witnesses or Mormons roaming through your neighborhood prostituting their false teachings, consider they could be visiting your kids or parents as well. We all only get one chance, this life, to spend eternity in Heaven in the next.
