Christians Proselytizing Christians

Admit it. All of you are aware of the missionaries (Mormons and Jehovah’s Witnesses being more well-known). I saw the Mormon missionaries trying to convert this guy on the street. Where I live, more than 80% of the population is Christian. Here is what I want to know: Why are Christians trying to convert other Christians to their beliefs? There is no point in trying to convert, for example, Baptists to Catholicism. I thought the point of Christian missions was to get people to find Jesus.

I’m not a big fan proselytizing, so I don’t even see the point in converting people from Judaism or Islam to Christianity. I’m more interested in what others believe than what I want them to believe. Before I get off topic, when we go on these missions to convert people to one religion or another, why are we going after people who already believe in a higher power? If we are going to proselytize, we need to proselytize to people who have lost hope, or don’t believe in a higher power. Those are the people who need to be converted to a faith.

To reiterate: stop trying to convert people to your denomination. It doesn’t make sense for you to try and convert someone to the same umbrella of faith as you. Feel free to share your beliefs, but don’t be forceful about.

  1. Jehovah’s Witnesses are in *breach of the preach*.
    Jehovah’s Witnesses proselytizing is a false Gospel. (Gal. 1:8)

    Here goes on JW:
    A) They are at your door to recruit you for their watchtower society corporation,they will say that *we are just here to share a message from the Bible*… this is deception right off.

    B) Their *message* creed is a false Gospel that Jesus had his second coming in 1914.The problem with this is it’s not just a cute fairy tale,Jesus warned of the false prophets who would claim *..look he is here in the wilderness,or see here he is at the temple*.
    C) Their anti-blood transfusion ban against *whole blood* has killed thousands.
    D) once they recruit you they will *love bomb* you in cult fashion to also recruit your family & friends or cut them off.

      I’m not a fan of the Jehovah’s Witness denomination. I’m not going to dispute whether they are a cult or not. I was just using them to help illustrate my point.

      I’m also sorry about what they did to you and your family.
