    If I'm busy, I ask them to come back another time. If not, I listen to what they have to say. Sometimes I even invite them in and serve coffee. I don't have a monopoly on wisdom. They might have something to say that I need to hear.

    I will show them the ways and principals of my own faith.

    I witness to them.

    I tell them that Jesus does not have a brother who is the Archangel Michael.

    Michael is a created being and Jesus is God. Jesus created the angels.

    I tell them that anyone who calls on the name of the lord will be saved not just a hundred and forty four people.

    I will talk to them outside, but never in the house. I will tell them what to believe. My garden needs fertilizing.

    If you have interest in what they are selling, so to speak, invite them in. If you don't tell them so.

    As a former Jehovah's Witness, I can tell you that the most powerful, thought provoking question I was ever asked by a "householder" when I was engaged in the "field service" ministry was this:

    "What if everything you have ever believed about God and the Bible was wrong?"

    That was 25 years ago, and I can tell you--that one question stuck with me, like a "sliver" in my heart for all these years. Last year in July when I became "born-again" in Christ, I remembered the huge impact that this one simple straight-forward question had on me.

    The gal who posed the question, probably never gave it another thought! Yet for me, it planted a "seed". 

    Not a seed of truth. Not the "seed" of salvation through Christ.
    But a "seed" of doubt. She did not need to say anything else to me.

    I wish I could thank her now! You never know what the "key" will be to unlock a person's heart. So just pray and trust as you open the door to these folks--that God will give you the right key!

    What a wonderful question you posed!

    Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons are not Christians, so when they come to my door saying they are Christians I quickly point out the truth and witness to them.

      amen  and most baptists have an incomplete Gospel and unscriptural understanding of salvation.

    As one of Jehovah's Witnesses, I daily visit our neighbors and speak about the Bible. If they are not interested, they kindly tell me so, and I bother them no longer. But what's the harm in listening just once? If you are not interested, say so.
