How do you witness to people? Whether it is someone you know or a complete stranger?
The one who strive after another way in order to be a witness for god do noy yet know God...
for God is already witness through and by all things including oneself...all one needs to d is Live.
My life is an enigma to others and they always notice that I am living differently than everyone else. I witness by example.
Usually, you don't witness for a complete stranger.
But, to witness to someone you know, print and sign your name, often adding your career title, as well.
I have several ways in which I witness to others. One is through my music ministry, for when I sing about God or for God, I sing with all of the emotion and passion required for each piece of music, and others hear this passion through my God given talents in my voice. I also give witness through my writings on Hub Pages. To date just over 1 year nearly 30,000 readers have read my writings. I also answer many questions in the "Answer" section as well as getting involved in the "Forums". Lastly I witness one on one, face to face.
We don't witness. He witnesses.
It is only God's Spirit witnessing through you. It is not about us, but about Him, otherwise witnessing fits into the man made mold ministry of this is what I do or what we do.
I tell one of my faith; and then listen to whatever he says to find the Truth. Unless I am seeker of truth myself, it is no use telling others about it?
I believe in peaceful, reasonable and rational dialogue between all the people of the world to find the Truth. I like interfaith dialgoue.
Really? Then, why is it that you stand on a pedestal of one particular sect of Islam maliciously calling out Christianity as fabrications and deceit, denouncing some of the very foundations of its followers beliefs?
You begin and engage conflict of one belief system from another and call it peaceful, reasonable and rational dialogue.?
As Scrooge had said, "I'll retire to bedlam."
What do you mean you like interfaith dialogue?
All you do is rant against everything non muslim!
Witness? You mean "Jehova's?" If so, go visit different homes uninvited and give them "Watch Tower" pamphlets.
If you're not a member of "Witness," then, be nice and act like a saint. Other folks will recognize your saintly calm, demeanor, compassion, and humility. It will be they who come to you, and it'll be the best way to 'witness.' If you shove your religion to others with a missionary zeal, you'll turn them off. They'll think you're a fanatic, and they'll avoid you like a plague. Do me a favor. Do not even think about 'witnessing.' Just act like a saint, if you can. That will be the best advertisement for your religion.
A person can only wtiness about what they know, saw oir heard, and then only if they are %100 sure of it.
It is always best to be led of the Spirit. He knows where you should go and what you should say.
I personally think witnessing is a messy business. I know how I feel when a fellow Christian starts witnessing to me. I become completely annoyed with that person, and truthfully it makes me want to run from God, and not join in. Which is the exact opposite of what it should do for people.
In my line of work, I get the opportunity everyday to meet people of different types of religions. But I have to admit that I've never been witnessed too by a Jew, Buddhist, Hindu, or Muslim. Nope. Because of this I have to admit that I have developed a really bad mentality when it comes to my fellow kind. Inadvertently, my thoughts on Evang.Christians, Jehovah Witnesses and Fundamental Mormons, mimics that of a bigotry.
For instance, because their kind is known from their constant, berating, behavior and endless witnessing- I would rather not sit by them on a bus, in a restaurant or anywhere. I don't want to be anywhere near an Evang. I think people like Tammy Faye Baker are the true epitome of evil, therefore I do not want to be associated with them in anyway. Over time I have developed the thought that Evang. and other zealot Christians are generally useless. Because of their open ignorance, on Christian history, Christian doctrines, Christ, and religious development- I feel that these Christians misrepresent the Christian faith to the point of reckless ignorance and destruction. For example- burning down an abortion clinic, or killing a doctor because they perform abortions in the name of God... really gets my goat. Or, or- marrying off some 13 year old girl to an old man, so she can serve as his sexual pet in the afterlife, pisses me off just a bit too. The Amish do this a lot.
I have to admit, I can't say that they are particularly welcome in my home, in my car, or anywhere that involves my personal space. When I think about it, it's pretty safe to call me Archie Bunker, Jr. when it comes to these people!
It is quite clear that "witnessing" has had a very adverse effect on me. Nothing turns me off more than those Mormon boys, who go on missions, knocking on doors of middle class communities that have been already been knocked on before.
That goes for the Jehovah Witnesses too..... You might be the best person in the world, but, start that witnessing crap, and you've just graduated to the biggest loser in my book. I'm a bad Christian. Bad, bad, bad. People like Sarah Palin, and her whacked-out Christian beliefs scare me, and she is just one of many Evang., Christian whack-jobs that comes to mind. George Bush! He is another Christian lunatic. Look at what he did in the name of God and Jesus!!! Oh my.......
some very strong opinions on here. There is a time and a place for everything......

Do you find witnessing to people to come natural or do you struggle at times? Many years ago I thought witnessing was very hard I use to struggle I guess I was afraid that someone would ask me a question that I wasn't able to answer. I had to really seek the Lord on how to witness to people, and...

Many people seem to hate them, but they are just doing as Jesus did in the bible. He preached and teached the word of God traveling as he did so to the homes of many individuals. But still most other religions stay in a church and preach, while the Jehovah witnesses try to imitate his behavior.Do...

If Jehovah Witnesses are Christians, why are they not allowed to go to church?JW's encourage everyone to come to Kingdom Hall. Why do they not accept invitations to visit church.
