Hi all, just recently I was thinking about the period of my study and eventual baptism as JW. It took many years, I guess in all about 10 years. Various times I stopped the study but after a while it started again. Besides some other reasons, I noticed one thing: the change in bible I used. For the first couple of years, I used the Good News bible (in modern English). I really enjoyed that bible. Then, at some point I decided to only use the NWT (because all JW's do). It seems that from that point, I became more WT focused.
So my question is: would anyone become a baptized JW when he/she only uses another bible, not the NWT?
In other words, if I would have continued to use my own bible, would I ever feel the need to become a baptized JW?
