as everyone knows, there have been major changes in kh financing recently.
this means that congs should only have funds equal to 3 months expenditure on hand - send the rest to the borg.
in the uk there has also been an appeal to send extra funds to finance the new bethel (if we are going to print our own literature and show videos on the doors, why do they need a new bethel?).
1.5 months ago there was a perfectly timed reddit topic about jw false prophecies that made it on to the front page of reddit.
this certainly didn't bold so well fortheir historic campaign.
the front-page of reddit had over 135 million unique visitors last month.
just reviewed the cd-rom to get the historical view on blind obedience.. suprisingly, the wt has had some flip-flopping ideas on this.. should we 'blindly obey'?no - w63 2/1 p. 73 par.
3 conduct "worthy of the good news".
and as we consider these commands of god, it is not just blind obedience that is required but, rather, seeking with 'our whole mind and heart' to understand and appreciate why god tells us to do this or that, or not to do a certain thing, so that we may serve him with understanding.
a genuine question really.. do they actually make desicions or are they simple sock puppets for the lawyers?.
are they just a front (like the queen is in the uk), with little or no desicion making input?.
do they just give talks and make appearances?.
the governing body doesn't use the 2/3 majority vote,right?
at least not for the appointment of its members?
(sorry if this is already clear and has been discussed already).
skimming through social media through one of my former jdubb friends.
i seen that practically every jdubb i grew up with are married and have kids or one is on the way.
it's kind of depressing to me since i'm still single and have no kids.
the week of september 15, 2014 was the congregations cos visit.
the midweek meeting was on tuesday, a very general bland talk was given by the co. in the past we would have had the elders & servants meeting on thursday night, and the other congregation meeting on friday.
as you know the friday meeting is no more.
one of the most pertinent comparisons of breaking free from the borg's control.. any sci-fi fans?.
and how will you, or have you avoided it?
examples, theodor roselvelt, dwight eisenhower, john kennedy, bill clinton all seen close to ladies not their wifes, those wordly guys got it made--?.
