I have been studying with JW’s since April. I do not believe like they do that it’s THE way to worship God. However, I guess I acknowledge it as A way. Long story short, I met a girl (JW) who I fell in love with. I’ve tried to explain certain truths – Jesus being God among them. However, she won’t have any of that. So my question is, in your experience and knowledge of the bible, would I be condemned if I convert for her? They’re morally clean people and mean well. What is your expert opinion?

It is not up to me to judge anyone. That is for Christ and Him alone.

However you did ask me a blunt question and I will defer to Christ to give you the answer to it.

Matthew 7:15-23

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

I will ask you a question:

If you truly love this girl and convert for her you will no doubt end up marrying her and having children.

Do you really want to sell your children into slavery to those that teach falsehood and lies just to satisfy your need for love?

You’re not just making a decision for yourself. You are making it for your future children and for their children. Do you really want your legacy to your children to be one of false hopes, enslavement, mind control and a futile existence in the Jehovah’s Witnesses?

I’ll leave that for you to answer for yourself.

I wrote this blog for people just like you that are on the fringe looking in and thinking you should become a Jehovah’s Witness.

If you’ve read much of this blog, you’ve been exposed to the darker “underbelly” of the organization and what it does to decent human beings and their families.

You know the rocky road that lies before you if you join the group. Do you really want that?

Yours in Christ,

Doug Shields
