So in my neck of the woods here in Rio Rancho, NM, I've been seeing carts being set up at extremely busy intersections. Traffic is high and there is no room to stop and ask questions, and actually it can be a bit distracting to motorist. Is this just a easy cop out for those jw's who are afraid to talk about their belief?

 It is what a congregation is apt to do if they want to participate in cart witnessing but there is little foot traffic anywhere in their assigned territory. They always opt for foot traffic whenever it is available.  I think it is being phased out due to exactly the concerns you mentioned. It always did strike me as a little silly and not too effective.

Here in Devon England they also set up stalls at 'car boot sales' (in fields where people sell their personal possessions ), but in honesty I don't see people talking to them or taking magazines or books. 

I presume they still count the time but they are not really witnesses are they ?  It looks kinda sad and i have mixed feeling when i see it. I never confront them, i just walk on by.

Yeah. I agree. This NM gig is really stupid . And what do the cops do? Distracting motorists? I mean are they standing in the intersect, trying to disrupt traffic? Bit like those unsolicited windscreen cleaners or something?

oops...here they go....

Not everyone does. The notion of living a happy life (see above photo) does not strike many as being such a bad thing. There are many people who do not have it at all and it is not necessarily clear to all where it is to be found, or even if it is to be found.

Some will be curious as to what is our formula for it. They may or may not cotton to what they read but it can hardly be a horrendous thing to offer it for their examination.

To advise people to pray to God through Jesus Christ and then also to read their Bible is a good thing. 

To advise people to read literature from the GB and Writing department of Watchtower / JW Org,  well i think we will just have to agree to differ :) .

People who are not interested are satisfied in the world in which we have to live at the moment just like some on here who are just critics when Jehovah says that`s enough I wonder where they will stand

So God has given you the right to judge has he ?

Maybe many who pass by have actually heard or read about the amount of Child Abuse within the JW Org.  Maybe they see the JW Org as unsafe. Or maybe they know people that are being shunned for no good reason by the Org. 

I'm 69 and i don't think i will be alive when God brings Judgement day.  I think it has to be a long way off from now. 

I think God will have a pure and honest earthly organisation, organised by communication from Jesus Christ in heaven to truly Anointed people here on Earth. People will know who to trust regarding God's message by the time Judgement arrives. 

As it is right now there is no pure honest organisation, so people are confused. 'Sheep without a shepherd' as Jesus said. 

The Bible tells us to serve Almighty God through Christ. So for my part I'm hoping Christ will make it clear who he is using here on this earth. It cannot be JW Org right now as that Org is unclean and has no spiritual direction. Just because JW's go earthwide pushing out a 'message' it does not mean that the message is from God or Christ. 

But you keep judging people Derek, you seem happy that way.

Give me a break,

yes, speaking  to someone is very important just like Jesus did.

however, his presence was more important to show others that HE WAS SENT BY HIS FATHER JEHOVAH. 

The same is with US, our present is a witness to the people that JEHOVAH'S SERVANTS are there sent by Jehovah , no matter if we speak to them or not.

so. its NOT a cop out

LOVE AND PEACE TO YOU

Did you Know Jehovah is God`s Name or do you not use  the Name of Almighty Jehovah?

 

Did you know the Org took on that name because it was convenient. It was a name that was already known by many. 

I believe it was thought up be a Catholic priest in a monastery, but i could be wrong. 

Did you know that the old argument between the names Yahweh and Jehovah still goes on ? 

And i presume you know it was YHWH or actually HWHY  as the Hebrew writings were from right to left. 

So Yahweh would be much closer to YHWH than Jehovah would be.

Around here it is my way or the HWHY, John. Get used to it. 

The Librarian (that old hen) like me better than you.
