How to Respond to Door-to-door Evangelists and Hotel Room Bibles

How to Respond to Door-to-door Evangelists and Hotel Room Bibles

Christian Evangelism is a common practice in the United States and throughout the world. Whether it comes in the form of missionaries who travel to underdeveloped nations to convert natives or door-to-door solicitors who hope to convince you of their “Truth” in your own home, it affects almost everyone. In many areas, you can’t even stay in a hotel without a Gideon-sponsored Bible in the nightstand. But how do you respond?

You could debate with the Jehovah’s Witnesses, have in-depth discussions with the Mormons, and annotate hotel Bibles with plot holes and original criticisms, but now there’s something much easier and more effective. I’ve put together some of the best arguments and most damning biblical contradictions from my first book, Disproving Christianity and other Secular Writings, into a four-page flyer that serves as a response to common Christian arguments. At very least, you might encourage a few believers to think and research their faith… and researching is never a bad thing!

  1. Something to hand out on my door step

  2. “Thank you. I’d rather not talk about it” or something polite about you having different beliefs doesn’t work you can always say “I have a bible and I know what to do with it”, smile and shut the door. No need to upset the other person. Does it matter much that you consider them stupid and illogical? They don’t have to know that.

  3. As they have invited themselves into your life, the very least you can do is give them something to think about. After all, wasn’t that their motive for disturbing you?
