Jehovah Witnesses knock at your door...

JWs are losing people because they are dead serious in their religion rules, which do not include the Christian holidays. I hung out with them during my high school years. My friends who were JW are out of it now and do Christmas etc., because it's too hard for their kids to go without when all their friends get stuff. They remember their own upbringing, so do I. 

If they continue to come to your door it could be because they consider you to be an agreeable and safe place to go. If you have the time for social activity, they aren't bad people, just some strange ideas. They are condemned by mainstream Christianity because they are not trinitarians, although, if you get tired of them, you can use that against them. If saying you're not interested doesn't work, "I can't join your group because you believe in two gods." gets their attention.

In the New World translation, one of the main issues is in John 1:1. they insert an "a" <---italics, in the text;

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. 

The phrase, "That means you have two gods" always causes facial sagging, sometimes gaping. As with Christians, they've skimmed over it many times, never properly understanding it so they have no response prepared, nor have they come back with an explanation, like they said they would..

    • Salaam Alaykum When I was back home, I thought my dad is abusive. He made me cry at 2 am by creating a family fight. That time I was 7 years old. A 7 years old boy was crying at 2 am. A 7 years old was in the middle of family problem with a HUGE amount of stress. Now I gained the freedom that you are seeking. Now after living seven years away from my dad, I just want to see my same dad and kiss his feet and hands for his effort on raising me. He never let me grow up on street, he supported me financially. I'm grateful for that. I wish I could squeeze his hands one more time. When I have stress and pressure, I need my dad support.   To the OP: you're dad is a good man. One time with all of those restrictions that you have, just sit down and have a tee and biscuits with him and enjoy.  
    • It does not look pretty. They freak me out. Wear an aqeeq and call it a day please!
    • Salaam First part: what's that?  Second part: no I wear aqeeq, dur e Najaaf, feroz, yaqoot. I also have the threads we touch the zaris with in ziyarat. 
    • Everyhing is instant now a days  Fine....
    • One muslim asked me that why we do latmiyah and cry, so I told because of mourning the grandson of Prophet Muhammad (saws) martyrdom, then he answer: "So you beat yourselves to this day for that reason.. Really.." And that's how it saddens to hear how the hearth have become so blind, that nothing but insulting the 'Aali Muhammad.
