When the Jehovah’s Witnesses Show Up at Your Door…

Once upon a time, my roommate answered the door to the Jehovah’s Witnesses wearing – only! – a sheet!

My other roommate, now a successful accountant in Atlanta, was once reduced to almost tears by the Jehovah’s Witnesses at our apartment door (“I don’t think my momma would want me talking to those folks,” he almost whimpered, as he frantically closed the curtains.)

I, myself have encountered the Jehovah’s Witnesses in many different situations. (One elderly, but rookie, Witness, said, in my driveway, “But Jehovah God doesn’t make deals, and I don’t think I can, either.” She’s also the one that I “guided” through her own presentation, because she didn’t have a clue what she was doing. When she got to the part about wanting be a part of the “144,000” I told her to look for me in verse 9.)

But I digress…

I bring up all those Jehovah’s Witness anecdotes simply to point out that whatever your response, however you choose to share your faith, it’s probably not a good idea to include a butcher knife.

Just a thought…
