Yesterday, as I was at the bus stop awaiting my bus to go to my Dr. appointment, I was approached by a nice JW man who was handed me some copies of the Watchtower and Awake! This man was well-intentioned, but he is in the wrong religion.
Also, my ex-girlfriend was a former Catholic turned JW. I tried to re-convert her back to the true Church, but to no avail. This girl I love dearly, she is also a Website designer, and I and her have a great relationship, but I am a devout Catholic and a business man. I work hard (80 hours a week), on my business and I have been thinking to myself about something that I have understood about the JWs.
What exactly do the JWs believe in? I love my girlfriend dearly, but I don’t know if I should continue the relationship or not if she does not want to convert back to her Catholic faith, because I want to get married some day.
I threw away my copies of Awake! and I threw away my copies of the Watchtower. I read my Catholic Answers Bible, and I read my books that I have that are short fiction books. Iam self-employed, so I always have to come to the office at my apartment to get on the free computer which has a DSL connection.
I think that there are something that I have come to believe about JWs. I pray for the JWs everyday, because they are brainwashed. The JWs are a well-meaning group, but they proseletyze and they try to steal cradle Catholics away from the faith.
Who was the JW religion founded by? What are their doctrines and what exactly is it that they do believe? Why are their buildings blacked out? Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
