A friend of mine I'm in lust with, has been trying to convert / recruit me. She's been very pleasant with me and very patient with me. She hasn't been very pushy which I appreciate.
She's even said that if at anytime I'm getting smothered or feel this religion isn't my thing, to say so and she will stop asking about it. But I get the impression once I say "it's not for me," she will bolt.
I've been asking question's that are what I would consider question's that would get her to think about some things on her own. Question's that would hopefully get her to rethink certain beliefs. But I know that's wishful thinking.
Tonight, she came "alone" to my home, which I thought was a no-no for a single JW woman, and gave me 3 DVDs.
1 ) Jehovah's Witness FAITH IN ACTION Part 1: Out of Darkness
2 ) Jehovah's Witness FAITH IN ACTION Part 2: Let the Light Shine
3 ) Jehovah's Witnesses Organized to share the Good News.
I've not watched them yet, but feel I owe her that much. Or do I ? I'm grounded in my beliefs and faith, and have also learned so much here from all of you.
I guess my question to you all is... Is there anything I could say that would make her think or question this religion? Or better stated; what are or were some major thing's within this faith that made some of you realize this wasn't for you?
I'm just confused... And don't want to loose what little we have. But have also accepted that this is all just wishful thinking that she will come out of this mind set.
Any advice? Tips? And please, feel free to slap me in the face as this could be helpful too.
