Lately I’ve had JW’s come to our door quite often. I know what they teach is wrong but what can I say to them? How can I respond to their false prophecies and teachings? They are getting me confused with the real truth :/ could anyone quote scriptures that would help me have more clarity about what is true and what isn’t?

I mean. When they show up tell them “I’ve already found God, I am [insert denomination/personal identifier] here, and I’m very happy. Please, have a nice day, but I am not interested.” Or just don’t answer if you know the ones in your area are argumentative. Don’t go to the door.

Thanks marysetrueblood 🙂 I sometimes just need more courage to say what I mean. It’s often impossible to not go to the door without being extremely rude. So I go and just listen to what they say.

Don’t worry about being rude by not going to the door. You didn’t invite them, so you don’t have an obligation to talk to them. I had some come to my door while home alone once and they knew I was in there (I peaked out the window on the door to see who was there) and looked quite upset that I wouldn’t open up, but I didn’t feel comfortable with it and I didn’t ask them to come to the door, so they shouldn’t have been there in the first place.
If you don’t feel comfortable with just leaving them at the door, go to the door, firmly tell them you’re not interested (again, not rude, since they’re the ones who showed up uninvited on your doorstep), and shut the door.
I wouldn’t recommend trying to confront them unless you are really really really sure in your own faith and know they can’t mess with your beliefs. My pastor explained that in the Bible, there are numerous warnings against listening to false teachers (as in those who teach heresies and perversions of Christianity) and the dangers talking with them can lead to, so it’s best to stay away from them.
