An example of jerkiness

Today, Sarah and I received a letter addressed to the “family of {Sarah’s father’s name},” and it was a handwritten letter from a Bible student along with a Jehovah’s Witness tract. The author is unknown to us. Nobody in Sarah’s family is a Jehovah’s witness. The letter basically cited a bunch of Christian Bible verses, and suggested the tract as a good source.

This is the kind of thing that makes Christians look bad.

If anyone reading this ever is in a position to decide whether sending a note like this is appropriate, please allow me to assure you: it is not. It is not welcome, it’s hurtful, it’s mean, and it makes the people who do this look like jerks.
