One has complete choice whether or not to be a Witness. A person should choose which religion he wants to be in based on a number of factors.
(Matthew 7:15-20): "Be on the watch for the false prophets that come to YOU in sheep's covering, but inside they are ravenous wolves. 16 By their fruits YOU will recognize them. Never do people gather grapes from thorns or figs from thistles, do they? 17 Likewise every good tree produces fine fruit, but every rotten tree produces worthless fruit; 18 a good tree cannot bear worthless fruit, neither can a rotten tree produce fine fruit. 19 Every tree not producing fine fruit gets cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Really, then, by their fruits YOU will recognize those [men]."
That applies to religions, not just people. Which religions's "fruit" is "fine"? Which religion adheres most closely to the Bible? The members of which religion best demonstrate the fruitage of the spirit?
(Galatians 5:22-23): "On the other hand, the fruitage of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 mildness, self-control. Against such things there is no law."
We are supposed to follow Jesus closely. (1 Peter 2:21) Which religion best does?
These are questions that a person can ask himself when deciding which religion to be a member of. But we each decide for ourselves. That is freedom of choice.
14 "And now fear Jehovah and serve him in faultlessness and in truth, and remove the gods that YOUR forefathers served on the other side of the River and in Egypt, and serve Jehovah. 15 Now if it is bad in YOUR eyes to serve Jehovah, choose for yourselves today whom YOU will serve, whether the gods that YOUR forefathers who were on the other side of the River served or the gods of the Am´or·ites in whose land YOU are dwelling. But as for me and my household, we shall serve Jehovah."
16 At this the people answered and said: "It is unthinkable, on our part, to leave Jehovah so as to serve other gods. 17 For it is Jehovah our God who brought us and our fathers up out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slaves, and who performed these great signs before our eyes and who kept guarding us in all the way in which we walked and among all the peoples through the midst of whom we passed. 18 And Jehovah proceeded to drive out all the peoples, even the Am´or·ites, dwelling in the land from before us. As for us, too, we shall serve Jehovah, because he is our God."
Furthermore, Jehovah's Witnesses are allowed significant freedom to choose on matters that the Bible doesn't say one way or the other. For example, whether a person drinks alcohol or not is up to him, so long as he does not use it excessively. (Jesus turned water into wine (John 2:3-11), and Paul recommended that Timothy use "a little" wine for health reasons. (1 Ti 4:23). But in many places, overuse of it is condemned. (1 Peter 4:3)) That is just one example. There are many matters of personal choice and conscience.
