Happy Feast Day of the Transfiguration of the Lord!

Troparion — Tone 7
You were transfigured on the mountain, O Christ God, / revealing Your glory to Your disciples as far as they could bear it. / Let Your everlasting Light also shine upon us sinners, / through the prayers of the Theotokos. / O Giver of Light, glory to You!

Even though on the entrance door to our home it says who I am, this is what I found on the front door today – from Jehovah’s Witnesses. God knows I make every effort to love all the people he created but I have to admit – I don’t like manipulators.

Long time ago I studied Jehovah witnesses specifically and those like them and found some very interesting things. Mainly, they have well paid professionals who study people and neighborhoods and times we live in - to pose questions, comments, pictures which would immediately attract the attention and lead people into their teachings.
Kind of like sales people who have a specific technique which makes you buy something that you don’t even need - with all due respect to sales people.
These groups would even do things like - send a very attractive lady to a house of a single man…
The people going from door-to-door don’t know these things but the foundation of their organization knows this very well - I just don’t know how they justify it.
If you studied philosophy you would know that some of the things are classic – the questions which they pose – typical pre-ancient an ancient philosophy questions – which are not old even today: what is the meaning of life? What happens when you die? And so on.
My humble suggestion is, if you don’t know your faith very well, don’t get into a discussion, because they are very well trained in this regard.
