If you know anything about the Jehovah's Witnesses you know that they like to preach door to door. They are very smooth with their tactics and like to engage people in conversation about religion using their religion to steer the conversation in a way that is supposed to get a person to think a-ha well this is the way I should believe too. Because the size of my village is so small it is very easy for the door to door preachers to navigate and boy do they ever.
I was first visited by them on Friday. Now if anyone knows me, I will not hesitate to discuss my faith with anyone. However, by doing so with these guys, it seems as if I have invited them to stop by anytime. They stopped by again on Sunday afternoon. Once again, I am not opposed to sharing my views. This is my problem though, I am confused as to why they think that I would in anyway ascribe to their way of thinking. First of all, my husband is in the military. Jehovah's Witnesses are against military service. Second, I like birthday parties, Christmas, and national holidays. They don't celebrate any of these. Third. I made it clear that I was already actively engaged in another faith and would not be swayed into another. Was the fact that I know my Bible (all be it not as well as some) an oddity to them? Do they actually think that I can be converted? I don't know. What I do know is they seem like nice enough people, but I would like them to stop coming by so often. I can stand once every few months, but twice a week? That is a little overboard. Well maybe if they keep coming by I can make them into Baptists unknowingly. Now that would be funny; the preacher becoming the converted.
