Last week while I was on vacation… I took a break from the heat and sun, came inside to cool off and heard a knock on the door, so I went to the door and behold! A Jehovah’s Witness and his little 8-year-old son were there knocking away. I guess the saying that “they will find you wherever and whenever is true“. To be honest at first I was a little setback… this was my vacation and now I have to put on my biblical brains.
So as we were exchanging greetings my Mom instantly came into my thought mind… saying Lenny don’t you dare give him a foothold 2 John 10 don’t let him trample the treasure of the Gospel of Jesus Christ Matthew 7:6″ He automatically started his jargon… Knowing that I was far from home and would never see this man again. He said he was the leader of the Kingdom Hall he belongs to… I quickly said WOW hold on sir.
I am not interested in hearing what you have to say, I have heard it all before and it’s not good news. You’re in big trouble … have you repented of your sins and believed in the true savior The Lord Jesus Christ who is the One True Holy God. He said I have repented then tried to get right back into his program… He kept on saying have you heard about the New Earth, I said what about spending eternity with the one true God and seeing Him in all His glory… you need to repent and change your ways. His little son is just standing there grinning from ear to ear and listening.
negotiations here when it comes to the truth of God’s word, they have to know they’re wrong and in big danger without the truth. I was kind throughout this whole conversation… but firm. I was never going to see this man again. I offered to step out and share with him more truth from the bible … but he said let’s go son and left… So he left with hearing the truth… the truth that saves. I still remember the time a Jehovah’s Witness came to our door many years ago… My Mom opened the door then turned to me and said with a loud voice “Lenny GO GET MY SWORD there’s not going to be any negotiations here… only truth John 14:6 1 John 5:20” Soli Deo Gloria
