    So what types of releases do you think they'll have based on these talk titles?

    My guesses are on Friday they will release a book possibly replacing the YPA book, a book geared towards youth. May not be another collection of YPA articles since those are readily available on the WT CD and on their web-site.

    If so my guess for Saturday is maybe a brochure to replace that to try and keep people in, or possibly a book on the holy spirit and how it can help to keep in Jehovah's love.

    I liked to guess what the releases were when I liked reading them. I was right many times.

    The end of Friday has this talk: Young People – Safeguard Your Relationship With Jehovah
    That could be a book or brochure title.

    The end of Saturday has this talk: Keep Yourselves In God’s Love
    That could be a book, brochure, or even just a tract title.

    Let's see, this years delightful, refreshing spiritual feast resembles Rotting meat, stale bread, maggot infested biscuits and cold lumpy gruel all washed down with something yellow and stinky. In other words, the same old regurgitated bilge.

    As you can tell I've had to endure many of these mind numbing drivel fests in the past. It's a terrible way to treat a child, I know, I was there.

    I'm detecting an anti-masturbation lecture there at the end.

    Drama: Do Not Leave the Love You Had At First
    (Depicts attitudes and situations that likely existed at the end of the 1st century as the great apostasy was setting in.)

    Likely. So they're "adding" to the bible again?

    I would bet more on a replacement for the old "Holy Spirit" book... when was that published?...around 1976 or so?...tan book if I recall (if i were not so lazy, Id get up and go look))..OK...I went and looked...it was tan...it was 1976...and the full title was "Holy Spirit -- The Force Behind the Coming New Order!" (note the "old light" terminology "new order"?. Notice this juicy blurb on the inside front page before the title of contents:

    "DEDICATED to the Almighty Being whose active force makes certain the bringing shortly of a righteous New Order for the everlasting good and happiness of all lovers of a clean, safe and peaceful earth."

    I am sure if they do re-release this crap, it will have a major overhaul....

    I am certain I will have something else to do that weekend...

    I forget who it was, but someone here once pointed out very astutely, how the GB has turned Christianity with all its freedom into a confining, rule driven Old Testament Religion.

    The endless contrivance and emphasis of so-called "Bible Principles" to limit and control the congregation is outrageous!

    I get furious every time I think of it!
