Did You Ever Regard The Elders As Loving Shepherds?
Not most of them. I can think of two elders who were sincere and were actually in it to help others. The rest of these maggots were nothing but emotional bullies in my estimation.
All they gave a fxxx about is having everyone in the congregation doing ever more, obeying the Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger plus whatever extra rules they could think of, and keeping me from meeting the opposite sex. For sure, nothing that resembles loving.
In fact, rather than solving problems, they were excellent at creating problems where none should have existed.
True point, Wiz. They created more messes than you'd think.
In the 50's and 60's, YES they seemed reasonable friendly family guys,
BUT now, just a bunch of lying b******s, they even lie about The Branch and the Organisation in general.
Whatever they say IS RIGHT, the r&f must shut up and take note of them.
I thought they loved me or cared for about 10 minutes back in 73, then I saw the light.
Then I figured it was just between me and God.
Then I saw the light.
I heard about an elder in a neighboring congo who got DFed for "loving shepherds".
And, of course, all JCs are strictly confidential.
Maybe in the beginning I did, but after I made it into the elder inner circle I knew better.
2 out of 10 were.
There were 8 wolves that kept the 2 in line.
Yes, I think they loved me and I loved them. Of all the elders I have known, only one seemed to not have love for the flock. I could be wrong about him though.
