For the past five years an elder from a nearby Kingdom Hall has been coming to my house to share literature. The timing of his visits usually correspond with a recent earthquake or other calamity that proves that the end of time is near.
Elder Dave believes there is a possibility that I will convert to his faith. Why does he think this? For one, I’ve made a point of being exceedingly kind to him. Secondly I ask a lot of questions.
Elder Dave cannot answer my questions but is happy nonetheless that I have not closed the door. Why should I? I consider his visit an important mission work of my own without having to leave my front yard.
Why do JW’s worship on Sunday? is a question I’ve asked often. Elder Dave does not know. Why were there no Jehovah’s Witnesses living in the world prior to its recent organization in the 1870s? Did God lack a Witness from Jesus’s time until now? Elder Dave does not know. Do the Jehovah’s Witnesses believe the Ten Commandments are still valid? Elder Dave does not know.
Dave has a busy schedule. He stops by “because he is in the neighborhood.” But he does not have time to answer questions. But he has pamphlets to share. He always promises to get back to me soon. He never does.
