What to say when a Mormon or Jehovah’s Witness comes to your door.

To be honest with you, I find myself debating with these people in hopes that I might bring them to the true knowledge of Jesus Christ. even though I’m actually convinced that God wants me to do the opposite. In fact, this is a reminder for me to listen to the very advice I’m about to give you.

Do not invite them into your home. They are participating in evil deeds.

They all just debate back at me just as hard, and usually not very nice. The reality is they are not coming to my front door because they want to hear my view on Jesus Christ. They are not interested in having their minds changed. They’ve heard it before and rejected it.

In fact, their religion essentially denies the full identity of Jesus. Galatians 1:8 doesn’t seem to favor these people either because Paul says “even if an angel from heaven preaches a different message let him be accursed”.

I know it kind of feels natural to want to try to save the lost. But I don’t think Jesus was interested in begging people to believe. Especially people that have heard the gospel and chosen a different message.

So, what’s my advice to you when a Mormon or Jehovah’s Witness comes to your front door with their false doctrine?

Ignore them. Do not participate in their evil teaching. on top of Galatians 1:8, here is your supporting verse.

[2 John 1:10-11] “if anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not bring him into your house, and do not give him a greeting, for the one who does this participates in his evil deeds”.

Mike Cynar was raised in a church setting where he frequently noticed that many attendees would eventually drift away. The church labeled these individuals as ‘back sliders’ or ‘fake Christians’ just looking for ‘fire insurance’. However, Mike realized the issue was rarely with these individuals but instead with the church’s message itself. The teachings heavily emphasized behavior improvement and one’s flaws, with only a fleeting mention of one’s identity in Christ. It felt as though every sermon was tailored to the church of Corinth, who as we know or committing sins that even unbelievers don’t partake in. This trend was noticeable not just in one denomination, but across Baptist, Catholic, Pentecostal, and many other churches. Upon understanding the true essence of the gospel – that our righteousness comes from Jesus’ actions, not our own – Mike was inspired to liberate believers from lifeless sermons and reconnect them with the genuine teachings of Jesus. He believes that one can nurture a vibrant and growing bond with Jesus, unhindered by rigid religious practices. And thus, “Jesus Without Religion” was born.

It turns out that it is grace that leads to repentance. And if our heart is to get others to walk in the Spirit and live a godly life, then the best approach is not a beat down sermon, but rather to remind other that it is only when we understand our true identity in Christ that we will live it out. Yes, it’s true, if you’re convinced that God thinks you’re a dirty sinner, you will ultimately continue a lifestyle that mirrors that view, but if you truly believe that even on your worst day, you are called holy, sanctified, justified, and will be presented blameless in the end, well, it turns out this is the secret to living out on the outside what has been worked in to the inside.

    You are very ignorant. In Revelations a future angel comes with the gospel. Are we to reject that angel. God will judge you.

      Angry much Larry? Hard to believe a Christian’s opening comment begins with “you are very ignorant”.

      [Matthew 5:22] but I say unto you, that every one who is angry with his brother shall be in danger of the judgment;

      Instead of behaving like and atheist who cannot control their tongue, how about we have some civil dialogue and taking the anger just a little bit?

      I made no reference to ignoring an angel, but at the same time I know this:

      1 Corinthians 6:3 Don’t you realize that we will judge angels?

      It is clear that Larry has attempted to judge me, yet I am relieved that the living God has already promised me there is no condemnation, and that the one who believes (me) is not judged.

      Larry, let’s exude the love of Jesus, and not make inappropriate comments that were not warranted. I’ve met people like you, and they are very unenjoyable to be around because they are so hostile in their opinion, and not willing to give a kind word if you dare disagree with their theology, even a little.
