    Today I watched the Public Witnessing Cart song and a part of the February broadcasting.

    It is unbelieveble how unreal the official JW message is and what do they have plastic faces on the channel.

    Only the good looking are shown (off course!) and what a hypocrisy on their faces.

    You mean you're displease with the direction in which Jehovah's celestial chariot has turned?

    Scoff NOT, lowly apostate, or you will be thrown into the lake of fire with a pair of concrete galoshes.

    Jehovah's celestial chariot now has 2 little wheels and racks! for all those little books and tracts - but no bibles, as usual!

    Isn't it wonderful how Jehovah's visible organization knows so much about Jehovah's thoughts that they can print all these books* & offer all these unique ways to witness to people? Aren't his happy people so proud to be a public witness cart-puller..! Yes, what a feeeeling, to go wheeeeeling....!!! It is so clearly obvious that Jehovah is blessing his people and giving them the best education ever! His lofty and holy countenance must surely shine upon these blessed faith-inspiring works of devotion....

    Ugh. Making myself nauseous.... lol.

    * books - Ecc.11:12 - "As for anything besides these, my son, be warned: To the making of many books there is no end, and much devotion to them is wearisome to the flesh." - bwhahaha!

    I have never used the word "unbelievable" as much in my life as I have in the last few months.

    I thought the tight pants lecture was "unbelievable" but maybe an aberration?

    Then came the cart....oh my.

    Now I am thinking that things are just reaching the point where I will need to drop the "un".

    I mean at what point does it just become pathetically "believable"?

    Gorby, it is simply unbelievable. I often say that I would love for some of the old-school JWs I knew to be still be around so I could get their reactions to the current state of JWdom. The org is fortunate that the human life-span is what it is and that all those who remember the old JWdom are dying off.

    The org is reinventing and rebranding itself and before long, it will consist of only those who don't remember the old JWdom. I would love to know what some of the old-timers at headquarters think. There have got to be some who feel like we do.

    muddy waters you said "witness cart pullers" I read witness caterpillars, not a pillar of truth, but one that is ready to turn into a butterfly. To think that all these cata-pillars could be freed and soar in beauty.

    They have been setting this up for the last year or so, more than once saying that even if we hear something that we don't understand, we still have to just obey.

    Magnum I hear you....... Yeah I remember my old days as a believing witness pounding the pavement with literature and bible in hand sure that we had the truth. But take it from an old timer who was in from 1955 to 1965 they were bat shit crazy then as well as now.

    DF over blood DF over a transplant, no need for higher education. Then the next group had 1975 to chew on.

    Until the internet no easy way to understand the real history of the WT and all of the strange things Russell believed in and wrote about.

    Go back to the 1920's when Rutherford was building a house for soon to be resurrected prophets of old.

    Ultimately the truth about the truth is that they were and remain delusional.

    The Witnesses who raised me (2nd generation JW parents) and that I grew up with (grandparents who all joined in the 1920s and 1930s) prided themselves on being markedly different from the nominal, frivilous, clap-happy church-goers in our locality.

    As representatives of the Watchtower Society, we were serious-minded, sensible, rational, not given to emotionalism, able to sternly show chapter and verse - and hold our own in any doctrinal argument.

    We knew our stuff to the very last letter - and, if necessary, were fearsome in the defense of our faith.

    I have no doubt that if some of those old timers who were active in the organization in the 1930s and 40s and were still going strong in old-age the 1970s (and who have since long departed) "came back" they would not only fail to recognize the dumbed-down drivel that passes as "study" but declare the organization to have become apostate.

    They would not spend a minute longer than necessary in the polished, stream-lined, air-conditioned tenchnology-primed boxes with Kingdom Hall and JW.org signs affixed.

    The organization, for its part, does not care: It retains among its ranks those who reveal themselves to willfully refuse to think for themselves as they go into the third verse of the trolley song.

    If you can't accept where the jw religion is today then you just aren't keeping up with Jehovah's chariot.
