OUR CHRISTIAN DAUGHTER IS DATING A JEHOVAH’S WITNESS AND IS IN THE PROCESS OF CONVERTING. WHAT CAN WE DO?
“We raised our daughter in a Christian home but now at 18 years old, she has begun to date a Jehovah’s Witness. He has impressed her with his ‘Bible knowledge’ and has convinced her to ‘study’ his religion with one of the ladies from his Kingdom Hall.
We asked her if she would be willing to check this religion out before she gets into it. She claims that she has already checked it out because she is on chapter eight of the book they are “studying” with her. When we tried to give her your website article: I’M STUDYING WITH JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES. WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW BEFORE I GET BAPTIZED?, she threw it back in our face saying that she won’t read it because it is ‘apostate’ information. We don’t know what to do! It is like she already has her mind made up and doesn’t care what we present to her. Right now, we feel it is all about the boy. She is mad at us because she thinks we are trying to stand in the way of her ‘true love.’ She is doing whatever it takes to get this guy. He is almost 20 years old, not in school and doesn’t even have a job. What a loser! Here she is a senior in high school with straight A’s, in advanced placement classes, combined with community college classes, but none of that matters to her. She is willing to throw all this away to be with this guy. What can we do?”
