I have a Jehovah's witness. Her name is Brooke. She has been coming to drop of booklets to me for over a year now I think. Usually she just comes alone, but today she came with her husband. Usually I just smile and take the magazine's and thank her and then close the door. She has never tried to shove anything down my throat and when she has had a bible verse, she has welcomed me to open mine and look at it with her. Today I felt like asking a question. I asked my question and her and her husband were more than prepared to answer it with scripture. It was interesting. Dont worry about me. Im not about to become a JW or anything like that. I have read enough about their religion to know that its terribly terribly off, but there have a couple things that I have noted about them that I wish more Christians were like. (Btw.. this isnt just about Brooke. My maid of honor at my wedding was raised JW and at her family functions (graduation parties, summer parties, since they dont do holidays) I noticed this about them as well, but this definately carries over to Brooke.) I talk to them because I dont want to be rude. I want my testimony as a Christian to show. Im sure that they have had doors slammed in their faces even by Christians, and I firmly believe that that isnt right. Anyways, what I have noticed. 1. They are always very humble and polite. 2. They are very well versed in their bible. We should be so well versed in ours. 3. The Kingdom Hall does a very good job equipping their members for witnessing. Too bad their religion is heretical, eh? I have met Christians who carry pride and attitude problems even into witnessing. This can definately be me at times. If I feel threatened by a question or whatnot, sometimes I dont carry myself in the best way at all. (of course, the biggest dilemna is that I dont do much witnessing) Im not so well versed in my bible and actually not even one church I have attended does much more to get me equipped than say "its important to read your bible". I dont think that my church is rare. I dont think most churches do their job in equipping the saints for witnessing either, which is sad, because it is their job to do that. That is what church is for. It makes me sad. Anyways. I have decided to really start praying for Brooke, and I just wanted to share that I have a JW.
