A couple of weeks ago I posted: www.jehovahs-witness.com/6/78808/1278659/post.ashx#1278659
For those who don?t want to read the whole post I bolded the part that I would like answers to.
At the moment I?m feeling totally drained and upset. I know I will get through it. I?m having a hard time reading anything that is too long. Guess it means that I just need to take care of myself and take a break. I feel that I?ve wasted so many years (and money) trying to learn about this organization so that I might eventually get my mother out of it but feel now that it will most likely never happen. I had a very faint hope that it might be possible but now realize that I can?t do it. This org has such a strong hold on her. I feel totally helpless but realize that it is out of my control and pray that God will show her.
We have both agreed to not let this get in the way of our relationship but it will be a lot harder than she realizes. I love my mother but don?t really like her, I don?t like spending too much time with her. I feel that as a daughter and as a Christian that I be there for her even though I realize that if reversed she would have never been there for me. When she tells me that she loves me more than I will ever know, all the feelings of the past coming flooding back, what she did or didn?t do and realize that she really is incapable of truly loving anyone. It?s always so conditional. I see it presently with how she treats my one brother. I just want to walk away from it all, call an elder from her congregation, that they take of her but know that?s not an option. The one elder made it perfectly clear last year that he didn?t want to get involved, that it was a family responsibility, which I do agree with to a point. My mother does need me.
She doesn?t seem to truly comprehend things. If I say something or ask a question it seems that she is really not hearing me and rambles about something really not related. I will again ask the question but she has a really bad habit of not allowing me to finish what I was saying and talk over me. She did mention that we need to build each other up, in our faith, but how do we do that when our beliefs are so different. She made a comment a couple of weeks ago when we had our first conversation that if the Witnesses were wrong then God didn?t exist.
I have asked her if it was okay if I wrote her one more time regarding our beliefs and she agreed that it was okay. So my question is, is there anything that might make her think, that this org might be wrong? 1914, 144,000, the Memorial, Blood, Prophesy, flip-flop doctrine, incorrect translation of NWT. She seems to mention 1914 and that people living won't die so maybe that's the one I need to concentrate on but I need info. If anyone can show me a link or know enough about it I would greatly appreciate it.
