I have noticed that it is becoming popular to see signs outside of many doors with No Soliciting notices on them. This has been a trend for many, many years, but more recently I have seen signs with an amendment to the no soliciting sign. I have seen a lot of different versions of these, but most of them have something that indicates that if you are selling girls scout cookies, you can ring the bell but not if you want to talk about Christ.
In my church we talk a lot about Christ and if you want to come up to my door or write a post on my blog, and talk to me about the Savior, I welcome you with open arms day or night. In the Book of Mormon there is a scripture that explains why. It is in 2 Nephi 25:26, it says,
“And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.”
I know a lot of my friends who are not of my faith often wonder why we spend so much time trying to share our beliefs with others. There is an article that explains it so well, called “Come and See,” If you read this article or watch the video, it will explain why my “No Soliciting Sign” has an exemption to anyone who wants to talk about the Savior. www.lds.org/general-conference/2014/10/come-and-see?lang=eng&media=video#watch=video.
