The Contradiction of Proselytizing

When missionaries come to your door and share with you their belief and testimony, hand you a little pamphlet and offer to pray, what is really going on in their heads, and what part of the doctrine you should be aware of?

“For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭7:9‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭4:15‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“And whosoever will not receive you, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a testimony against them.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭9:5‬ ‭KJV‬‬

“And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.” Mark‬ ‭6:11‬ ‭KJV‬‬

if you do not hear their words, you will not be held accountable to their law. If you hear the words and reject it, condemnation and eternal destruction await you. So why do they do it? And remember, this is supposed to be the kinder, gentler version of religion after christ. This makes no sense. “IF” there is a god, missionaries hold a master key to the gates of hell, and they’re sending us in by the train load.

  1. I liken that knock on the door or invasion of privacy in public to a vacuum-cleaner salesman or new fangled spray-cleaning agent salesman. The vacuum-cleaner you bought was unknowingly carrying a mother Wolf Spider with 10,000+ babies on her… and in your house they SCATTER everywhere causing the worst infestation imaginable! Or after using the new fangled spray-cleaner and everyone in your family, and your kids friends too, have come down with cryptococcosis! A free gift? Seriously?

    Always, always, ALWAYS look all gift-horses in the mouth! And understand the psychological manipulation that is behind ALL sales-marketing techniques! 🙄 😨

    1. That’s pretty funny now. Probably not so much back then. lol. My mom had two sayings she used quite a bit. Yours above and “you can’t make a silk purse out of a sows ear” She said that a lot about my first wife. She was right too. When I was little I thought people said “never lick a gift horse in the mouth”. It never occurred to me.

            1. My mom was from port Gibson. The shack she lived in was still there in 1977, she was born in it 1935. It was a faulknerish place.


            2. Ahh, yes. Very familiar with all of the little Delta towns up and down the great muddy Missi-ssip. Covered about every square mile of the state, including the Delta, when I worked for Charter Hospital, out of Jackson.

              There are obvious reasons why Mississippi is and almost always has been for the last century ranked LAST in most of the nation’s social, economic, and educational sectors. Yet, there exists “another sector” that is sheer opulance to contrast those other… MUDDY facts. 😉

  2. Religion is such a mindfuck. Once they get you to believing the nonsense, they then convince you go forth and drag new rubes into the fold. Those poor sinners need saving. And the pastor needs more money!

    I swear religion is the most brilliant con out there. Getting people to believe in utter nonsense, and then do your bidding, is the con man jackpot.

  3. Great post Jim. I like what you wrote, but more importantly, I love the Jesus picture. It makes me laugh but it shouldn’t. I shouldn’t be laughing because it’s so true…and that’s not funny. Not funny at all.

  4. I always ask the JWs why an all-powerful being needs fallible humans to deliver the good news. Where’s Jesus at? Can’t he just deliver it in person? Needless to say, it’s a short visit.
