    I don't doorknock whenever possible at my church they do it 2 a week. I only go once but I'm not a silent partner.I don't go streetpreaching. But I do try to be a good witness to everyone I meet.

    Well obviously in Alaska or Siberia(Or my hometown in Montana) it might get a little tough going out to door knock and witness during the winter. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I witness often. But I never doorknock or streetpreach. That's not what I've been called to do.

    No, I'm asking what does "whenever possible" mean in the context of your question? I don't think you mean "every waking moment except when you have to go to the bathroom" (i.e. it is "possible" to doorknock and streetpreach 16 hours a day, each and every day), so I want some clarification. Since is "possible" for you to be doorknocking right now instead of reading this post, does that mean we should all answer "no"?

    Thumper. Unless you have a scripture that says only doorknocking or streetpreaching qualifies as witnessing, you owe John and indirectly me an apology.

    I used to go on visitation with my Pastor here. It was usually on him, me, and my sons. I drove 30 minutes to get there also. That pastor left and I have not been driving 30 minutes to doorknock by myself. I witness at work and when the opportunity presents itself in my daily affairs.

    I pass out tracks pretty frequently at restaurants and sometimes at stores. However, I try to be discerning about how a person will receive it. I don't want to turn them away with a tract when someone else might have the opportunity to win them with a word.

    That's pretty unrighteous and unscriptural of you to say.

    I've been witnessing to my Muslim neighbor for a while now. I see the Holy Spirit working in him every day.

    On Sunday, I shared my faith with some friends over for dinner.

    A few months ago, I shared my faith with some non-Christian friends of a family member who died. In fact, I gave the eulogy at his funeral, and told 200 people in the room about the decedent's relationship with Jesus. To date, I've received three notes from people who attended, who let me know they've decided to accept Christ. I spent $2000 of my own money to travel to the funeral (it was out of the country) and give the eulogy, and given that my effort has brought people to the Lord, it was money well spent.

    I witness as God calls me, not as some holier-than-thou KJVOist thinks I should. So before you go casting your unrighteous judgement, perhaps you should ask yourself if your conclusion might be wrong.

    KVJBibleThumper said "You are dodging. I go whenever my church goes."

    I am not dodging anything. I was simply asking for clarification. Apparently, for the context of the poll, "whenever possible" means "whenever my church goes". Thank you, I can now answer the poll.

    Now that I've answered the poll, I am curious: how are you going to interpret the results of the poll for your paper? You have no way of figuring out who answered what.

    Do ya really wanna experience mass evangelism? Do ya wanna have literally 1,000's upon 1,000's within your reach? well, come here friends. To the brave souls I wish the Holy Spirit would challenge you to street preach at Times Square on a Friday Night around 11:00 to Midnight..although it's been a few years now personally...may He ("it" KJV Rom 8)challenge me too!

    KJVBibleThumper - If you want to be considered as an adult and treated with respect, you need to learn a little.

    If you came to my door with your language and attitude, I would slam it in your face. The holier-than-thou doesn't cut it with folks who have a Winchester behind the door.

    I would encourage you to learn how to speak before street preaching, learn tact and compassion before casting stones of judgment, and take a spelling class.

    Consider this some mild advice from a prof that would give your poll and your subsequent berating people gracious enough to respond with an "F".

    This poll is faulted.
    Knocking door-to-door is a way to
    turn off folks that might respond, if a
    more reasonable way is found.

    Large response groups visit only those
    who ask them into their home and want
    them there.

    You can contact 100s of times as many people
    on the internet as face-to-face.
    However, be warned, those 100 may be somewhere
    else and NOT want to give money to your
    church.

    I can't wait to find out what kind of class or teacher considers an Internet poll as a useful source of research data! :rolleyes:

    Here's hoping your teacher evaluates the usefulness of your questions. For example, one question is:

    Do you believe its [sic] wrong to publickly [sic] witness and doorknock? [yes/no]

    But the very next question is:

    Do you believe its [sic] right to publickly [sic] witness and doorknock?

    Which should have been covered by the previous question. But the possible responses are rather confusing: yes and yes? What is this?

    The last two questions are similarly redundant:

    Do you do any of these things listed but arent [sic] KJVO? [yes/no]

    Do you do any of these things and are KJVO? [yes/no]

    So I just answered all of them randomly and in contradictory fashion. [​IMG]
