All you did was tell them, according to their own doctrine, that you are the brother of Jesus Christ. Not sure why they did not embrace you.They came to my door once. When I answered the door one said, Hi, my name is John. I responded with Hi, I am Lucifer.
They left and must have black listed my house as no other JW's ever visited my house again.
Your Grandpas sounds like mine. I would have loved to listen to him talk. Perhaps he was aware of the following as well as were most of the early reformers like Spurgeon, and those found in Foxes Book of MartyrsMy Grandfather would talk the bible to anyone that even slowed down a little and it was 80% of any conversation he had with anyone about anything. He read the bible every evening. In multiple versions clear back to the OLD German version he even had a friend of mine who learned Greek read some passages to him from the Greek version that came after the Latin. And he thought organized religion was the work of the devil.
I remember when I was about 11 or 12 a car load of witness's stopped at grandpas house. 6 hours later stuffed full of grandma's excellent coffee cake and Sanka he let them leave. They were visibly shaken up and confused. We used to joke that when coming from Salem to Silverton they would travel on the wrong side of the road to avoid getting to close to his house.
Grandpa even entertained one of Wernher von Braun's associates who came by to talk to him about the Bible. But as a 10 year old I was to interested in the coffee cake then the name of the man talking German to my grandfather who was a part of history. And I have never learned that mans name.
One day in the early 1970's, a couple of JW's came down our long, rural driveway and knocked on the door. I was a young adult then, and opened the door to talk to them. They started their spiel, and and evil thought came to me. Beside the door, on a bookcase inside, I had placed a couple of books that I was going to return to a friend. They were "Chariots of the Gods" and his two follow-ups, where the author thought that ancient gods were really alien astronauts.One sure way to end a convo with Jay Dubs - ask their opinion about dinosaurs or UFOs.
They won't be back.
