How do you know he is being emotionally "tormented?" Someone going through something like what? Going to the meetings? I see nothing unbearable with that.
amac, it's not just going to the meetings. It's something that has to be dealt with in every day life. If a child chooses to be worldly rather than be in the truth, his parents will look down on him for the rest of his life, and since he's been attending meetings, he knows this. Then you get all the shit at the meetings, "We missed you on Sunday! Where were you?", "When are you going to get baptized?".
Then you get the encouragers, "Want to come out with me on field service Saturday?". Then, when the encouragers get a "no" answer, they go to the parents, and of course the parents do the "encouraging" because they have the power. They can take threaten and take away all the child's material posessions, or kick him out of the house if he doesn't "obey his mother & father".
Trust me, words can hurt more than you think. Words can damage a person's self-esteem and their own self-worth. If he's been wanting out of the truth for quite some time and he's not getting out, it will take a toll on him emotionally. He probably wants to date, hang out with his worldly friends after school, but he can't or his parents will take action against him. It's not a picnic, trust me.
