This long long thread about the Big News is like a irresistable whirlpool that keeps sweeping me to the center.
Yesterday, I tell myself, accept patiently the delay of news release. Today the irresistable impulse is to write.
What I will write will not be speculation. It is a thread of events and discussions of events from the past couple of years or so.
It is about the Big Lie.
The Big Lie is that the Bible says that it requires two or three witnesses to establish a crime.
Ted Jaracz stated to the Panorama reporter in public the Bible commands: Do not go beyond what is written.
On this board a post was written back then, that the Bible does require two witnesses but one of the witnesses can be God her self. This post gave several scriptural evidences where only one human witness was necessary. The main discussion was the case of a woman being raped in the wilderness and the rapist denies it. The woman endures a trying public procedure to establish her innocence swears an oath to God. If she was lying she would be publicly disgraced by having her belly swell and rot.
Certainly, Watchtower writers and Bible researchers must know of this Bible account that only one human witness can determine truth and have discussed this over the years.
Next fact: Back then, or whenever,. a woman claims, while being a Jehovah's Witness, that she was molested and abused by a man who now is the most prominent one in the governing body. She claimed that there was a Satanic under tones to the wrong doing. In a demonstration in front of Brooklyn Bethel she read out loud her statement. Some , and I too, believed she was somewhat disturbed in mind. Farkel, who knew her well, reported confidence in her story. The WT never ever publicly acknowledged or denied that accusation.
Brooklyn headquarters has admitted, or not denied, that there is a list of 23,000 cases of child abuse in their data base. I often wondered, does this number cover world wide incidences or just USA. I wondered if anyone in headquarters would ever show courage enough to release the contents of that data base. If this data list becomes known, and it lists all cases throughout the world. The governing agents responsible for child abuse in all countries should learn of the case of hidden perpretraters in their jurisdiction and act accordingly. For them to learn of this takes publicity. Whom shall I send?
Barbara Anderson sacrifices family, friends, position, reputation in an effort to expose the Watchtower evil position on child abuse. For the past few years she, along with others, has not deviated from her nurturing determination to see that justice and relief be delivered to victims of abuse.
She writes in a report on this thread, that several years ago, there were changes made and assistants and helpers were appointed to help the supreme glorious ones. These appointments were support by Lies based upon false interpretations of Bible texts.
She reports that one of the prominent ones who was disappointed at not receiving goes to his superior and questions why he was not appointed. He is told that the highest in command did not recommend him because of his criticism about the Watchtower policy on child abuse.
Barbara quotes the text:
He that is faithful in the little, is faithful in the greater.
He that is unfaithful in small things is also unfaithful in large things.
If the Big News turns to be some other scandal, blood issue, money, whatever, the above rememberances still stand. Whatever the Big News is, all these factors and publicity will be woven together. One falsehood, one scandal shall sweep all the abominations into one big heap to be burned.
There is fire in the inner sanctum and that fire shall burn and consume the one making an oath in his name and swears falsely. Zech. 5:1-4
