Do Jehovah's witnesses still knock on people's door?

just asking because I haven't seen them no more

Report as

Yep. Though you can actually contact the local Kingdom Hall and have your house removed from their lists. Most of them politely leave when I say "no thanks", which is more than I can say for the fundamentalists and evangelicals that come to my door.

I've made more than a few proselytizers cry in my time too.

It's too bad they couldn't just shake the dust from their feet and walk away. Is it so necessary to make people cry?
Report as
Yes it was. I asked them politely to leave. I told them no thank you. I informed them that I was very educated on the topic and they would not enjoy a debate with me. And they woke me up on a Saturday morning so they could come on my property and sell their religion like a set of encyclopedias, telling me I'm a "sinner" who needs to be "saved". It was on.

If you can't take your beliefs being challenged, you sure as hell shouldn't be going door to door trying to push them.

Correct! I would never try to convert a skeptic as confirmed as you, S. I have met a few who have open minds, but even I can tell when the lock is on the door. I respect someone with a decided mind!
There is a verse in Revelation: "Behold I stand at the door and knock..." and the point is, you have to unlock the door from the inside.

Well Skept we did our job in trying to share some scriptures with you. People can either choose to listen or disagree with us, it's really up to the person. Thanks for warning us, as regards to what they were saying about being saved, is that we are all sinners and it's not once saved always saved as other people might view it, it's a constant struggle to uphold God's commandments. Well I don't want to go on, I know you got your own ideas and that's fine with me. Thanks for sharing in what you think of us. :-)

I have an open mind- I'll examine any evidence put before me. That doesn't mean it's valid. I've met far more believers with closed minds- those who would not change their beliefs no matter what the evidence was. If provided objective verifiable evidence I'd believe it- I've just never seen any in 20 years of study.

Well to be real with u skept I found, studying with Jehovah's witnesses was such a relief. I found all the answers I was looking for in life. When I was younger I was apart of other Christian religions growing up. I just couldn't agree with the doctrines, as regards to eternity in hell, idol worship, trinity, pagan celebrations transformed to Christian celebrations and so many other ideas that conflicted with the bible. I just all together gave up on religion, and became a atheist. I just didn't care about God. Then Jehovah's Witnesses came to my door and I found the true religion. I know that you might not think there isn't a God, and I totally see your point. But even though there is no real proof, I just have faith from the stuff I experienced in my life.

Not on mine, they blacklisted me after I converted two of them and made a third cry.

I'm reliably informed the Mormons have blacklisted me too.

OMG, the same thing happened to all the jehovah's witnesses and mormons who showed up at my door, whats funny is i beat their "seasoned adults" in debate, and i'm only fifteen, are you Catholic too?
Report as
No, atheist and antitheist.
Report as
ah, i see, its funny how two people with completely different ideas on life can smash their arguments into pieces, i think the reason their thought process is so weak is because its all based on the bible
Report as
I certainly agree the bible makes your mind weak.
Report as
The bible is a moral compass. It makes us wise and just if you actually follow its teachings

I've sadly made a few cry too, though it was not my intention. I did give them fair warning that they would not enjoy a conversation about religion with me though.
Report as
So I most certainly disagree with you Vicky. My mind is strong and my tongue is sharp. Your misconception of christianity is really the flaw in your perverbial steel.
Report as
but still, all your points and arguments cannot be based upon it, it is a source of knowledge, but it is not the ultimate source of knowledge
Report as
Well played, VC, well played. xD

Geez same here. I had a visit, they set up some studies in the home, I had three nice visits with them and they refused to come back for a fourth.
I suspect it was my aftershave.

They knocked on my grandma's door one or twice but she shattered their arguments and plead the blood of Christ upon them. They never even walked by her house again. As for me, no. I haven't had any approach me

I've found that telling them I'm a Buddhist, and would they like to hear all about it works like a charm. They scamper off so fast you can't see them for the dust.
