Also, their studies are designed to keep a potential convert from learning about deeper concepts of their religion until that person has accepted the basic premises upon which their so-called “deeper truths” are based.
So, if you agree to do a “study” with them in their books, they will not allow you to discuss incriminating aspects of their beliefs, such as the fact that they teach Jesus “is not the Mediator between Jehovah God and all mankind” but only for the 144,000 3.
As his own family is not allowed to discuss spiritual matters with him until he is reinstated, it is quite possible that his mom has offered to do this “study” with you in hopes of determining how likely you are to convert to this religion.
His parents know that if you do not convert, your boyfriend runs the risk of choosing his relationship with you over his relationship with them and this religion.
