|When I read your story what came to my mind was the aftermath of a sinful act. The great grandpa's sin definitely would not go unnoticed by Jehovah. Moreso, that he has misled a lot. But let it be clear that the fact that he was the Presiding overseer of the congregation doesnt make him perfect or saint. The bible says that jehovah's judgment will begin from his house - congregation. This implies that there are bound to be a few bad eggs among us. I want you to see all that had happened as a testimony never to leave Jehovah inspite all odds. |
What "Noble" said is the exact way my family would see it. It's a cheap explanation for anything, which keeps people who cannot reconcile what they see going on with what they know shouldn't be going on, keeps them faithful. In a way, it probably increases their faith. The "bad apples were prophesied in the bible" theory, which PROVES Jehovah's Witnesses have the truth, although it does NOT prove the catholics have the truth... I'm not sure how that works, but...
I don't think anyone believes POs are perfect saints, but it would help if they weren't committing felonies on a regular basis, don't you think?
I love this - MORESO, THAT HE MISLED A LOT. So, misleading someone [away from a cult] is far worse in Jehovah's eyes than raping a child.
Wow. Noble is actually doing us a favor, exposing the cold, opportunistic attitude of so many Watchtower faithfuls.
