Jehovah's Witnesses Is a Cult that's accursed

Well, I'm sure that each person who reads this blog will be able to relate to having two people come to your front door trying to peddle their false doctrine and give you information that is nothing more than idiotic propaganda. They always come at the worst possible times. They can flip through their bibles with amazing speed, quoting chapter and verse to "prove" that Jesus Christ is just an angel, that he died on an upright stake instead of on an old cruel cross, that accepting blood transfusion is as sinful as adultery, and the the Watchtower Society in Brooklyn, New York, is God's modern-day "prophet", his "channel of communication."
I would like to know how you respond to these intrusive knocks at your door?
Do you drive them from your doorstep with a harsh rebuke? Do you run them off as you shout, "Deceivers and Liars"? As they leave, do you condem them to hell?
Do you have apathy rather than anger by saying, "I'm sorry, I'm not interested" or I'm sorry, I'm busy? Perhaps, you respond by saying, "no thanks, I'm a Methodist, or Baptist. If you use the term, "I'm sorry, but" soso soso soso soso soso, they will politely respond by saying "I'm sorry too"! Then they will tell you to have a nice day and move on to your neighbors house.
How do you really handle this. You know they are persistant and will continue to come back and back and back. Do you know the reason they keep coming back? For one thing, they believe that you will be destroyed in the imminent Battle of Armageddon unless you come to Jehovah's organization for salvation. They think they are trying to save your life. But even more than that, they beleive that they will not survive Armageddon unless they engage in this door-to-door preaching work under the direction of God's organization.
Most Jehovah's Witnesses are, in all sincerity, doing their best to serve God. They are like the unbelieving Jews of whom Paul wrote, "...they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and goiing about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God." Rom. 10:2-3 They really are victims of victims---blind followers or blind leaders. They need to escape from the salvation-through works treadmill that makes them obedient servants of a multibillion-dollar religious empire. They need liberation from the oppressive yoke that wieghs them down on their shoulders; yet they have been led to believe that it is the very carrying of that yoke that will save them--and that anyone who seeks to dissuade them is a deceiver sent by Satan.
How will you handle this knock that will come to your door at some time or other?
I suggest you find out what they believe, then I recommend that you get more familiar with what you believe and be prepared. I thought I was, but I was not.
I have since decided I wanted to know more about what this "cult" believes and how I can bring glory and honor to Christ by sharing the "true gospel" with them.
How will you hanlde your next knock at your door?

I never know what to say to those people. I'm not mean to them, I just tell them that I know Jesus Christ as Savior, and turn them away. Though, I think it would be the right thing to study about their beliefs and take it as an opportunity to share the gospel.
I'm going to do that.

Oh and I just read that blog about God's will, that's so good! i'm keeping it!

The JW's are a hard bunch to witness to. Ron Carlson has several questions to ask them that they cannot refute. So the last time they came to my door I asked them the questions and they ignored me like I had not even been talking =======they have never been back.

Jehovah’s Witnesses door to door recruitment is by their own admission an ineffective tactic.

They have lost membership in all countries with major internet access because their false doctrines and harmful practices are exposed on the modern information superhighway.
There is good and valid reasons why there is such an outrage against the Watchtower for misleading millions of followers.Many have invested everything in the ‘imminent’ apocalyptic promises of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and have died broken and beaten.

Jehovah’s Witnesses are a cult because they try to cut you off from others who do not have the same beliefs, including family. Yes,you can ‘check out anytime you want but you can never leave’,because they can and will hold your family hostage.
The Watchtower is a truly Orwellian world.
The ‘message’ is their false Gospel that Jesus had his second coming already in 1914.The problem with this,is it’s not just a cute fairy tale, Jesus warned of the false prophets who would claim “..look he is here in the wilderness,or see here he is at the temple”
The Watchtower’s Gospel “kingdom” is a man-made “different version”.(Gal.1:8)
