May Internet come to help, with its communication and social services?
Brothers and sisters already joined various online social or dating or singles sites, found friends or established online relationships.
Okay, I met this guy who works in my office building and I really like him. We have alot in common, and this has the potential to become something serious in the future. They go to church on Sunday for more than a few hours. I have an issue with people who come to your home to try and persuade you to join their church. and i know that myself thought at one time i could over look her not being one. not a good idea at luck in whatever you decide to do with this guy. Quite a few years ago a good buddy of mine started dating one of the girls we both worked with.
Except that he's a Jehovah's Witness and I am Agnostic. I can't tell you what to do nor do I profess to know alot about his faith. They also have bible study during the week and they are adamant about each member putting in time to go door to door and try and bring in new people to their church. and it worked until the relationship got very serious and i realized i'd be doing the church thing alone and she really did'nt fall into my beliefs. He was a very business minded individual and into computers, programming and we are talking the early 80's here.
I have talked to him before about my apprehensions and he doesn't seem to think its a problem but I don't think he is looking too far ahead, he's only thinking about how he feel about me now and not how this will affect our potential relationship. I do know that I have a good friend at work who is a Jehovah and I know that they are VERY serious about their convictions. Suddenly I and others noticed signifigant changes in his personality.
My dilema is that I don't want to get too involved and find out one day that it's not going to work when I've already fallen for the guy. My experience with this girl after seeing a movie with a couple of friends and her as part of the group led me to believe that the religion of Jehovah feels a lot more cultish than religious.
Read books, magazines, publications, and literature from other religions.
Study psychology, philosophy, sociology, and viewpoints that might shake their faith 51.
Brothers and sisters wish to keep all the spiritually upbuilding relations, exchange greetings, wishes or experiences with other Jehovah's servants. Take yoga classes and practice the discipline of yoga. Wear military uniforms or clothing associated with war 25. Take a stand on any political or ‘worldly’ issue outside of their organization 17. (JW’s are ‘appointed’ and invited to be leaders.) 14. Take a stand for any political issue inside their organization 16. I can answer this off the top of my head, but I have no time to look for sources right now, so I'll put it in a comment. 0) First of all, persons who are not baptised as a JW, but only raised as a JW, are free to live their lives as they see fit (there is no infant baptism among JW's).
