Unfortunately, though, I think the WT is aware of the problems and will make small changes overtime; they're master of survival, don't forget.
Wow... Very interesting, Observador. I've wondered about that for awhile now. Small changes? No biggie. But big changes? I think that may eventually lead to a rather massive exodus. I got a kick out of this comment...
When they finally drop 90% of their bogus doctrines and go mainstream, witnesses will say "what a progressive organization. Jehovah has blessed us so much. Rejoice!"
I think you're right. Lots will do just that. But some won't--and eventually others will be bugged by it. I mean, if they really do make the changes needed, the organization will be barely recognizable, won't it? At the heart of their teaching is that the F&DS is only in association with the WTS--and that what they say goes. If they change that, then whoooaaa! What's left?
If they make the blood policy a conscience matter, this is going to bug a lot of people--considering so many have died because they thought it wasn't. If they admit they were wrong about all the dates--even 1914--then their basis of authority is gone--poof.
Love to see it, but can't actually picture it.
