What Message is the GB Giving Mature Ones at Bethel With a Massive Lay Off?

    I wonder how this is effecting the morale of those Mature Ones still at Bethel? The Governing Body is in effect telling every one there you are all just pieces of shit to us(GB) and we can get rid of you any time we want because you are all just pieces of shit to us.

    Actually, I think the message is:

    The love of the R and F is cooling down, they are not bring them in so, GO OUT TO THE FOLD AND PREACH. The big A is just around the corner.

    It reminds me of a certain song:

    "Hit the rode . . . Jack"

    "And dontchya come back no more, no more, no more, no more"

    "Hit the rode . . . Jack"

    "And dontchya come back no mo . . . . . . "

    "Whatch you say ! "

  • frankiespeakin

    Yeah Leo, it telling them we are just a corparation and the bottom line is $$$$.

    Tax Free Corparation is all that we are, not some sort of "True Religion" that looks after widows and orphants in thier tribulation.

    It is sending the mesage that we aere so deep into the toes of the last days of this system of things, that the GB are willing to sacrifice these great gifts in men by sending them out to the R&F. Even tho they have the slightest idea of how they will make a living after being institutionalized for so many years.

    "Tax Free Corparation is all that we are, not some sort of "True Religion" that looks after widows and orphans in their tribulation." That is precisely the point someone made to me on the FS and got me thinking on whether the JWs were indeed the true religion: "why doesn't the WTS despite its billions of dollars of property doesn't help the many widows orphans and poor among its loyal members?" I knew that as far as the local dubs were concerned there was indeed no care for the poor among them, because "jehovah's organisation is not a charity" and "pray to jehovah to help you".

    Every other normal company would rather keep proven long term employees who demonstrated commitment to the company over the years, only WTBS kicks their ass even more. What a waste of human talent, and lives ...

    I think most would accept the positive spin the WTS has put on it. Generally Bethelites preferred preaching to the factory work, so if the WTS says efficiences mean they can go back to the field they would not see anything unusal about it.
