Witness

If you have reached the stage where you are living for God….. living to do His will each day and follow His direction then you will probably want to pray that He will bring people to you that you can actually help.

Nothing is more frustrating than “wasting” time  talking to people who do not wish to hear you….. the Jehovah Witness religion tells their followers that REGARDLESS of the response they get they are earning their salvation by spreading the “message” (propaganda)….. Christians should not duplicate such behavior.

Surely GOD does not expect us to use such techniques to “save the lost” ?

Christians are to preach the Gospel…. and answer genuine questions from seekers after truth….. NOTHING MORE….. we are not expected to convince anybody of anything, it is the HOLY SPIRIT that does the “convicting” and “convincing” otherwise the person will not be SAVED (and they could very well change their mind for the next “convincing” idea that comes their way !

2 Timothy 2:16 “…shun profane and vain BABBLINGS; for they will increase unto more ungodliness”

2 Timothy 2:23 “But foolish and unlearned questions AVOID, knowing that they breed strifes”

2 Timothy 3:13 “but evil men and seducers shall become worse and worse, DECEIVING, and being DECEIVED.”

In conclusion, we ARE expected to talk about our Lord Jesus Christ constantly and we can plead with others to accept Him too…. but we should not try to convince or pressure anybody into accepting “our position”…. do NOT argue or engage in discussions that are a waste of time simply hoping to “make a point”….. this leads to frustration or anger and “converts” nobody (even when they seem to agree with you)

Instead, PRAY that the Lord will bring the people to you… the ones that you can really HELP
