I don't even know what a hallucination is like. (Remember my sheltered life? Never drunk, no illegal substance of any kind, ever.)
Put the army there, call it an invasion and start shooting?
It didn't take long before I found out they wanted to Preach to me and they said some thing about it was Acceptably to be Chinese in the Church of Mormon

So I go to the door.
Two females at my door and their Mormons,
They would not shut up
How do Jehovah's Witnesses react when they meet someone really excited about God and the Bible and they want to talk about it? Often times they can't run away fast enough. Are they really looking for people who love God and love the Bible -or- are they just looking for people who will blindly submit themselves to their doctrine?
Francis Chan told about the time two Jehovah's Witnesses came to his house. He listened for a minute and then asked if he could tell him about the things that God was doing in his life and how God was answering his prayers. One of them responded that God doesn't listen to everyone. He agreed that she was right...in James 1 it says that if we don't have faith he won't listen, or if we have selfish motives he won't listen...he doesn't listen to everyone but he listens to me.
He told them that the week before he was preparing for a conference where they go and care for the poor and make 10,000 hot meals but they didn't have any meat or any money. They have been praying all week...and an hour after the announcement was made that they didn't have anything to give...Trader Joe's called and said that all of their freezers had broken down...and could they use all of the meat. Then a giant U-haul pulled up loaded down with chicken and pork chops and steaks. Isn't God awesome!? The lady looked at her friend and said lets get out of here. They started walking away...and he went and walked with them! He cared about those ladies...he wanted to tell them about what God has done...story after story...asking them how they could explain that God answered prayer after prayer.
One of them said "What are you...a Pentecostal?" He responded with "It doesn't matter, all you need to know is that I'm a human just like you and I read the Bible for myself...study it and then I pray to God and that God listens to me." She responded "Well that's your problem...you read it for yourself. You can't understand it unless one of our leaders explains it for you." But that is the real problem. They didn't believe that the Holy Spirit is real...and there is power in the book...he can speak to you. You put your faith in people to tell you what it says...but you can't trust people to tell you the Bible, you have to read it for yourself. God will tell you what it says when you open the book for yourself. Taking God At His Word
