My friend, who means an awful lot to me and who is a Jehovah's Witness got in to trouble within their faith recently... and It is partly my fault. You we met up, she didn't tell anyone, and we kissed, that was it... But her family found out, and now she's going through a hard time, and she's finding it hard... I hate the thought of it, but there's nothing I can do, I wish there was, but their isn't. She doesn't read this site, or isn't interested, but it might help. She's beautiful, mazing and helped me through so much, all of her faith seem to have turned against her, yet she still talks to me, and i'm so grateful for that.
This might be a little strange, but could you guys give her words of wisdom, a bit of advice? helpful cheering up, and i'll pass them on to her, show her what humans are supposed to do for each other rather than shun, and hate. It would mean the world to me knowing that a humanist is helping a believer.
Thank you ~ Adam.
Even God would not argue that...and I know it personally!
Knowledge places all people together, man divides the circle of one into a pie by way of calculation, opinion takes care of the rest, knowledge argues the division.
She knows the truth of her own feelings, and she knows the truth of what happened. Hopefully her family and community can let themselves believe and trust her; I'm sure they have more reasons to trust than not. Obviously you like and trust her, so she has at least one person at her back. That's a good start right there.
Beyond that, every person ends up on the wrong side of the parents now and then. It's perfectly normal and usually does blow over. They love her, otherwise they wouldn't care what she did. And making decisions (even the ones they don't like much) is how people grow and learn about themselves.
Beyond parents and faith community, there's a whole world of people out there who will agree with her choices and understand her reasons. Maybe she should seek them out. Having a variety of friends only sheds more light on the beauty of life.
My sister in law is a witness and I tried to save her from obvious mind control and utter nonesense but it backfired. I was naive to think that a mere chat could undo the programing that she has suffered over many years. I now avoid the subject in a bid to enjoy her company but I do still try to plant the seed of doubt every now and again.
My advice would be for you to move on, these people are not easily swayed and you will just frustrate yourself.
