We have a group of Jahovah that WON'T STOP COMMING TO THE HOUSE no matter HOW MANY times we have told them we don't want them on our property! (mind you they ignore private property signs)

The JW's came to my house 11 times before they left us alone.

We politley told them we respect their right to practice their religion but wished they would respect our right to privacy.  If they came back, we would call the police.  Haven't heard from them since.

Mormons don't bother me one bit.  I actually find them very friendly and they don't pester if you're not interested.

My best friend is Mormon.  She's one of the nicest, truest Christians I've ever met.

According to their beliefs, they are doing the work of God! So, no. They arent trying to annoy you, they are trying to help you! Maybe you could tell them you have your own belief's, and thank them for their concern, and ask them to move on, to someone who may be interested......

 I dont know where you live but my good friend is a JW and her Kingdom Hall makes a note of houses where people decline and they dont go back to that house. They arent doing it to annoy you they are doing it because by their belief it is their duty to spread the word of God, or what have you. Ask them to pray with you.

 If you choose not to decide you still have made a choice.

I dont understand why they bother you so much... I just had some mormons come to my house a couple weeks ago and I let them in and we talked a little while...they were very nice...there was alot I didnt agree with them about but they were nice anyway. I can always not answer your door.

We have done this but they have been coming to this house since my grandfather was alive and he died 22 years ago! they don't get the hint! they are pushy as heck. They might stop for a month or two but start comming again

I got them to stop comming to my house by questioning why in the bible Jesus says I go to prepare a place for you after resurection...and then also why he says he shall return to the Earth. 

Jw's believe that only the highest high Archy will ever see the kingdom of heavon...they believe that Earth is where we shall always reside for eternity. 

I asked her point blank so you go door to door and you have a big heart for Jesus and God but then you are not good enough to ever see him>?  I said that is not my God...they have not been back after what was once weekly visits!
