The point on obesity vs. gluttony is well expressed in the foregoing posts. A person can be thin and still be a "glutton".
Here, let's use money as an example:
A person can be very poor and yet very greedy and so can a person who is filthy rich still be very kind with money and try to help others with their excess.
The fact is that the website at
mentions that "The Gov Body quietly considered expelling those judged too obese".
It doesn't say anything about gluttony. Nothing is mentioned about expelling "gluttons" but rather those "judged too obese"...
Well then who is doing the judging? Will they put a weigh in scale at the entrance of the KH or will they have an attendant with a tape measurer? Will they assemble a Judicial Committee to "judge" who is "too obese"?
It just seems so ridiculous a thought. If indeed it was brought out in a Governing Body session it taints the image of this "Governing Body" as a group of judgmental bigots trying to exert their own misshapen consciences on those they trample and tread underfoot with pharisaical rulings.
This is why it would be important to get at the root of this leak... if indeed it was something discussed by the Governing Body, then "Wow!" if it's something made up then it's a false accusation.
I'm interested in knowing more about who may have said something as "stupid" as bringing for consideration expelling people for their being over weight according to another persons standards of body shape and body mass.
Who really has the right to judge another on Salvation on this issue. Please note that the quote says nothing, nothing, not a mention of "gluttony" only about being "judged too obese". What an incredible statement!
