i have been involved with a girl who is of the jw faith; although things have pretty much ended between us... due to her being disfellowshipped for the way we acted together (although she has recently been accepted back).. she did make me think about things... and consider her religion.
however, i think i have come to my senses.... a few things about the religion seem wrong to me... the whole watchtower thing (false prophet), being baptised into the organisation, the subject of blood and the little evidence they seem to have to back this up, the 'new light' etc.. i would really like more information to present to this girl in order to:.
1) show her that it really is not right for me; with good/ unquestionable reasons why;.

i have been considering religion and god recently... and to some extent the jws religion.. i was in a video games shop the other day, looking for a few good games for my xbox console.... i found myself thinking "would god look favourably upon me if i brought this game".... the game in question was 'mortal kombat' (one of the more violent games).
this is one of the main reasons i did not purchase it.. i think i have succumb to jw logic.... is this the right way to be thinking?.

even after a year of thought regarding religion, and inparticular the jw faith... i am still no further forward as to whether i should go for it.. i realise that practically everyone who reads this post will be anti-jw; but i appeal to your unbias/ neutral side... if thats possible.. both sides have their own point of view... both are very convincing; i am just not sure what will "clinch the deal".. all i know is that i cannot go on like this for much longer!.
soul-destroying is an understatement!.
