Why are they not doing like Jehovah’s Witnesses?

Editor: As a Rastafarian, I like to observe and read my Bible, meditate, and draw certain conclusions. I do not wish to offend any religion, but I am speaking out the way I see matters; reality.{{more}}

For years now, I notice that only the Jehovah’s Witnesses go around consistently preaching the Word of the Most High to people anywhere they find them – home, street, market, and so on. So to me it seems as though only they follow Christ and the apostles’ footsteps in preaching the gospel.

Luke 8:1 shows me that Christ and the apostles went around cities and villages preaching the Gospel. Luke 10:1 mentions that Christ sent out seventy to preach about the Most High. Acts 8:12 says that Philip preached about the Kingdom of the Most High and about Christ. How is it then that the other churches are not doing like the Jehovah’s Witnesses? No offence meant, but I ask: Are the churches lazy? Are they mute? Is it that they don’t know what to preach about? Are they coward, afraid to meet with hostile people? The Jehovah’s Witnesses meet up with all kinds ah criticism, abuse, just like Christ, but they keep on preaching the gospel of the Most High.

Since so many churchgoers can gossip plenty, then they can use their mouths that the Most High gave them to preach. Why are they not doing so? I wonder what explanation the pastors have for their members not following the example of Christ. No offence to the churches, but these are serious things to think about. Ah speaking reality! One Love still!
