the GB stole my idea
What happens if/when members question this doctrine? Does it ever come up in public meetings or is this the type of question that gets you quickly escorted from the premises? It's a fair question, though.
User100 and Marvin, I had a very similar experience. The elder I floated this idea by accused me of having "apostate thinking," whatever that is.
Funny thing, if he was right, then the current GBs are all a bunch of apostates!
I'm thinking he might've been right!
