When I was in the Witnesses, and near the end of my time in. There was the whole new understanding, of putting non-anointed people in positions in the organization that were normally something an anointed person would be in. I remember them mentioning that the amount of anointed was dwindling and there needed to be people in these positions of responsibility, to make sure the work continues.
After this was highlighted and all good Witnesses swallowed this thinking hook line and sinker. I asked an elder once, "Why would they do this, when the yearly count of anointed clearly shows that there are plenty still out there. Wouldn't it make sense to appoint these ones to responsible positions, especially since Jehovah has already done so?" I mean, it would have just made sense to me, that if these ones were truly accepted as anointed, then it would make sense by their own history that these ones would have been chosen first over any other non-anointed person. You would think the Governing Body would have their names, addresses and phone numbers and would be sending a plane ticket to them, stating their need. Apparently though, they don't.
The elder told me, that the anointed were older and tired people and the ones being appointed needed to be young and able to handle a large workload. Then I looked around our own congregation and territory, and pointed out two anointed people that were in their 40's and asked why these people would be considered too old. The elder ended up telling me, that this was all just part of Jehovah's plan and it would make more sense, when it was completely revealed in time.
Well, almost ten years have passed. Nothing revealed yet. Other then the fact, that the Witnesses are so closed minded to anything other then the physical world, and scared of the spiritual one. That even the one belief they have, that some what slants to a spirit world connection, does not hold true in their organization and even in the individual hearts of the members. If they truly believed what they preached about the anointed, they would have done exactly what I had said in the first place. As it makes sense, it is in line with what they claim to teach and if the anointed were already appointed, it would be in line with their own belief in God.
Yet they did not, and it is just another item on this list, showing that the Witnesses are just full of crap!
