If a Jehovah's Witness wants to be loved and accepted by their family and the only friends they are allowed to have, they instinctively know it's best to go above and beyond the minimum requirements of the Watchtower Society.
The last thing a Jehovah's Witness wants to do is get in trouble with the organization or be called in for a 'judicial committee hearing'.
Two or three witnesses are required to prove guilt. However going to the Elders in hopes of solving their 'problem' is not likely to make them feel better.
All JW's are expected to turn off sexual thoughts or 'deaden' them except for the person they're married to.
For example, Jehovah's Witnesses must not celebrate Halloween.
Does that mean they can't give out candies when children come to their door? However many Jehovah's Witnesses will not participate in giving out candies, because to them it's part of the Halloween celebration.
This list of rules is not an official organizational document.
It was compiled by former members based on experience and information in Watchtower publications.
Their personal relationship with God is symbolized by baptism Followers of Jesus are not saved by keeping rules. Christians are free from strict laws, rules, and regulations. The God of Christians is kind, loving, humble, and gentle.
They don't have as much guilt or fear because they have a personal relationship with Jesus. Matthew ; 1 John 4:8-21; Luke ,35; He is forgiving and understanding. Jesus explained the true nature of God and disagreed with the Pharisees who focused on rules instead of God's love.
