(as posted on the KJV blog)
I was happily teaching my boys this past Thursday morning, when the door bell rang. My first reaction was, "Oh, no, it´s them!"
Now you have to understand, we are surrounded by them. They are everywhere here in Gijón, Spain, it seems.
The Jehovah´s (false) Witnesses have come to our door probably every several months trying anew to convince us of our errors. We see them in the streets going two by two, We receive their evil literature in our church mail-box and they still come to our home.
Needless to say, I have had to do much study as to what they believe and how to defend against their attacks. Thursday morning was a little different, however. The two ladies who came were either more docile or more open to listen.
We discussed the Millenium, Jesus´2nd return, and the end of the Earth. It was exciting to continually bring them to the most important part of Scripture, that if we don´t believe in Jesus as our Saviour and God then we will suffer eternal punishment. They amazingly agreed, but knowing they don´t believe in the Diety of Jesus, I continued to emphasize that Jesus is the only way!
They left finally, after wanting to argue about the Earth not being destroyed by fire. I couldn´t find the verse at that moment ,of course,( it´s 2Peter 3:14) but continued to tell them that what was most important was Salvation by faith in Jesus Christ our Lord. It is always very important to say that Jesus is God because that is the one point that keeps them from truly accepting Salvation. They reject that Jesus is God in the flesh.
It is so difficult to not get frustrated and worked up when they come around, knowing they are drawing so many sheep to the slaughter. Sandra, is one of them. She is a Colomian lady I met in the park the other day. She told me that she had just started meeting with the JWs. I was disappointed thinking that if I had only met her 20 days earlier, we may have saved her from the lies that the Jehovah´s (false) Witnesses preach. Please pray I may have more opportunities to speak with Sandra. I was able to share with her the gospel that night, but she does not want to get all confused listening to two religions. (how ironic)
Please pray too, for these lost Jehovah´s (false) Witnesses that they see their error and that we may continue to be bold but loving to share with them the truth. Many of them are our own neighbors. Please pray for us to have more love for them, as they are mostly all Spaniards.

a reason of the hope that is in you..."
