so 2 weeks ago I went to my 2 day CA.
This had lots of interesting tid-bits, like the WT summary of the generation change. The conductor said that if we were listeing to Jesus speak we would have known he was speaking about us! Then he followed with "and thats PROBABLY what they understood too" - I couldnt believe he actually said probably.
anyway, at the end of Sunday the DO came about and went into a bit about all the things the org has done for us. It was as interesting as it was telling. It was directed towards all those that have "lost their sense of urgency" and dont take "direction" as seriously.
He said: "who taught you about 1914? About the true identity of the FDS? Who taught you that god is not a trinity? Who taught you the truth about pagan Holidays and how to keep without spot from the world? etc etc. he went on like this for 3 or 4 minutes...
this seemed to be an admission from the WTS that they know the R&F are "bored" with the "truth". As if the GB are saying "yes we know we've made mistakes but look at all this other stuff we've done! If it wasnt for us you wouldnt know about any of this stuff!
It seems to speak volumes when the GB has to send in the heavies to the CA to hit the members with a guilt session for doubting. Yet their is no logical debate here. They are not "correcting" wrong thinking. No, they are just saying "well what about all these powerful works we've accomplished in Gods name?" (sound familiar?)
this line of reasoning sounds like that of a man trapped in a corner, desperate for a way out, grasping at straws. this seems to correspond with recent Study Edition WT's lately too.
anyone else hear this from the DO ?
