Is your mom usually that dramatic? She most like read more into what was being said--meditated on it and then took it out on you! She's most likely sincere--it's like playing telephone--the story gets bigger as it gets passed along! My mom does it, too! It can drive you nutty!
These words remind me of our friend Danny Haszard who says the WT is the "Cult of Innuendo."
Remember that they are still talking to JW who have been entrenched for 30 or 40 years. They speak in circular meanings....about 'strong' JWs and 'weak' JWs....those that are 'strong' will interpret this one way....the faders or the young people who never knew about the old-skool JW ideology will interpret in another way.....
They are especially this way now since the JW are being run by lawyers...a whole bunch of "could be" talk. Which the older ones interpret as though God shit that thought out directly. The younger ones are like...wow maybe something is coming.
The older ones hear a different message than the young ones because of their history.
