Thanks for this information. I've become so indifferent with what he WTS is up to of late. But my interpretation of this, especially with the private JW-only magazines and then instructions of not having any independent meetings among witnesses, is that the organization is moving into a position of more direct control and surveillance. They will not only mind-control everyone involved, they will weed out those who are not fully into the cult and a 100% follower. Who knows what special instructions are given to the elders for watching out for "independent thinkers."
At the same time, ironically, I'm interpreting this as possibly relaterd to the ECONOMY! A mass exodus is going to lead to loss of income. The economy is in trouble but if you've got a printing business with guaranteed subscribers paying the costs and you can keep that in place then you can weather the coming economic collapse a lot better. So it's like the Illuminati-controlled WTS doing what it can to secure its future income as much as possible; they are tightening their grip on the fold.
In fact, this last "generatio" issue even to me seems a bit desperate. I never had the concept that the average witnesses really was paying any attention anyway; why draw undue attention to perhaps something not noticed before anyway? So THEY are concerned about these issues perhaps more than the flock themselves. New changes in how the organization works is another sign of desperation to control and insulate the organization from the free thinkers.
Normally, I'd think this is a good time for an "apostate attack" with one of my fliers about some of their false teachings, but the Bible clearly says the WTS (false prophet) and the 666-Beast (the leaders of Christendom) are cast into the lake of fire "while still alive" (Rev. 19:20). So the organization will still be up and running when the crash comes and the UN removes, apparently, all public expression of any kind of religion and all these rich church institutions will have their money confiscated. No legal status or special tax status for any religions.
When BTG is destroyed the merchants of the earth mourn over her demise and the great wealth she once had. Taking the financial status away from religions is likely the only way you can destroy organized religion. People are going to maintain their own views on god and religion regardless. You can't take that away from them. People have fought for freedom of religion and thought. But if that is modified to simply not allow certain men to publicly express those ideas, or organize any kind of a church organization, then many of these religions will die. If the WTS has no money to print magazines and books and has no kingdom halls, how can they function as a religion? All those preachers living off the congregations will disappear. They will all have to go out and get "real" jobs all of a sudden. Thus they will not be curtailing freedom of religion, just not making it easy for pastors and preachers to make huge profits doing so.
Even this recent Barak Obama incident with his pastor is a great example. Some interpret this pastors statement as being radical and racist. It certainly has affected the campaign. So clearly, religion has dabbled in politics and there is a lot of talk about religion and the beliefs of the politicians now. In the meantime, the focus of a lot of terrorism is religious zeal stirred up by so-called religious leaders and their interpretation of their holy books. So to me, it's logical to suppress public expression of religion since it is clear that some charismatic leaders use the pulpit to manipulate people politically and socially beyond what the state would call "religion." Fact is, lots of hate groups hide behind religion. How can you close down some religious hate groups and draw the line for others. Easier just to close them ALL down.
I also think all these child abuse issues in the forefront of religious leaders like the Catholics and JWs as well will help speed their early demise. Attacking the leaders and the institutions is not the same as attacking freedom of religion and thought. Believe what you want, but no tax breaks, no religiously held property. It sounds shocking but it is PRACTICAL in the current world, both economically as well as politically. But if you financially curtail the power of religions then you essentially destroy them, especially the huge organizations like the Catholics and JWs that are worldwide organizations. Massess of people controlled by the ideas of a few men whom they've convinced their followers are "holy" in some way or more connected to god than they are and thus they are obligated to follow them. In the case of the WTS it is truly the "blind leading the blind."
Of course, if this is something that is possible or logically imminent then Armageddon is too. So actually the desperation we're seeing in the WTS is a good sign for those wanting Armgeddon to hurry and get here (like me). I'm acting out my FAITH! I'm putting my beliefs in action! Meaning? Meaning I know once a real economic crisis hits and it's too expensive to run to the casinos they will suffer too, so I'd better get my gambling in now if that's what I think I'll miss. So I went to the casinos last week and made my usual "donation" and had a good time. It was kinda sad though. I saw lots of people just sitting at the machines. They must be people who come on the bus and had nothing to do but wait to go home since they had spent all their money already. The must not have had that much to begin with. If the overall economy suffers, it affects every business eventually.
When you think about it, if people lose jobs and become insolvent, they can't pay their taxes. Without taxes the government can't operate either. So trying to stimulate the economy is really a desperate act of self preservation. In the meantime you have all these religions sitting on billions and trillions of dollars, institutions now with reputations of promoting terroism, hate and child abuse. So why not confiscate all their funds to save the world economy? Even Christianity in the world is not seen as the "true" religion any more, but just an alternative one.
