When we tried to give her your website article: I’M STUDYING WITH JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES. , she threw it back in our face saying that she won’t read it because it is ‘apostate’ information. It is like she already has her mind made up and doesn’t care what we present to her. She is mad at us because she thinks we are trying to stand in the way of her ‘true love.’ She is doing whatever it takes to get this guy.He is almost 20 years old, not in school and doesn’t even have a job. Here she is a senior in high school with straight A’s, in advanced placement classes, combined with community college classes, but none of that matters to her.She did not want to abandon him, yet began to see the reality of the situation.Then Jehovah God said: "It is not good for the man to continue to be alone.Like most people, she didn’t realize what a difficult strain that would put on their relationship, but here she was another 6 months later, at a “dead end” wondering why he was “scared to death” and wanting to leave her so he could be a more “devoted Jehovah’s Witness.” Our on line discussion began with one member’s reminder to her that Jehovah’s Witnesses are instructed not to marry outside their religion.We began to teach this woman about the fear her boyfriend was going through in the prospect of losing his friends and family in addition to dying as an apostate at Armageddon.
If it is allowed, is the ceremony different in any way? A person who made such a marriage might possibly be removed from positions of responsibility within the congregation.” OUR RESPONSE: Dear friend, We appreciate the love you express for your Jehovah’s Witness boyfriend and your desire to help him find freedom in Christ.You are in a very difficult situation because your battle is not only with the beliefs he was raised under but the influence and pressure that his friends and family put on your relationship.They are not considered as JW's and the society can not officially sanction any of their life style choices.The same goes for disfellowshipped persons or persons who disassociated themselves from the JW's.
