4. Why do you Evangelicals not evangelize going from house to house as the Jehovah’s Witnesses do?




First of all, I would like to say that the so called Jehovah’s Witnesses do not evangelize in that they don’t bring the Good News of the Kingdom of God but only damnable heresies; their gospel is not the Gospel of the grace of God because they preach that one is saved by meritorious works. However, they can’t be sure about their salvation even if they behave honestly and go from house to house. Every time I have asked a Jehovah’s Witness the following question, ‘Are you saved?’ the answer has been, ‘I hope I will be saved, but I can’t say I am already saved!’ That means that a Jehovah’s Witness does not have the assurance that he will escape the judgment of God against His enemies at the battle of Armageddon (for to them, to be saved means to escape Armageddon). This shows clearly that the doctrine of the Watchtower about salvation is false and useless.

But let us speak now about going from house to house. We don’t go from house to house because when Jesus sent the seventy to preach the Kingdom of God, He expressly said to them: “Do not go from house to house” (Luke 10:7 – NKJV).

Jesus Himself did not go from house to house, rather He went from one village to another, and from one city to another, as it is written in the Gospel according to Luke: “Jesus traveled about from one town and village to another, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom of God” (Luke 8:1 - NIV), which is a completely different thing. Of course, Jesus preached the Word of the Kingdom even in some people’s houses, but this happened because He was often invited by people to go to their house, and so He took the opportunity of evangelizing. We also sometimes have proclaimed the Gospel in people’s houses because we were invited by some unbelievers to their house and so we preached the Word of God to them. Therefore, that’s the reason why we don’t go from house to house to bring the Good News. Nevertheless, it must be said that there are some Christians who go from house to house. I don’t agree with them. However, Christ is preached anyway, and in this I rejoice.
