    I think it is entirely possible, they have lost a lot of qualified people(elders, public speakers,etc)! More people fading away every day and not many new coming in, in the developed world. They could adopt new light.

    What ever is published this week in the Watchtower could easily be republished in a little while as something else and not be remembered by the majority of the publishers.

    They would probably find a way to make it conditional. Maybe only those who are recently disfellowshiped, not long time disfellowshipees or known apostates.

    We all have to remember this is a world wide corp who in the old days could say or print something in India or Sri Lanka and no body in the rest of the world would know or hear about it, but not today.

    When a publishing whorehouse like the WTBTS gets desperate anything is possible.

    They may say it but they won't do it, the believers will be told to continue to do the same. If shunning stopped in time more and more people would learn ttatt and the house so would collapse faster. With the secrecey of thier meetings and published stuff thier going more the other way. Their getting down right period and that doesn't usually mean they'll loosen the chains.

    I would love that. I can just imagine the look on their faces when I tell them, "Oh really, you thought you were shunning me for more than 30 years...surprise!!! [click]."

    I am trying to think of a way they could possibly punish people and still technically get rid of the DF policy.

    I wonder if they would replace it with the old "marking" idea. Where no name is mentioned but a talk is given and everyone knows to "distance" themselves from that person.

    Basically gossip does the rest and I am talking about gossip among the congo.

    Crazy guy do you really believe if the shunning stopped that people would learn ttatt? If they structured it right the opposite would happen. You would have these new members who you could now talk to who are considered spiritually weak and need encouragement. Nothing the newly reinstated could say would change their minds. It makes my flesh crawl just telling someone how it might work on here as I am sure the GB is monitoring this site.

    No. False and untrue.

    It is not very likely that there would be a disagreement between the writing department and the service department over JW practices. If anything it would be between the legal department and the GB (and their helpers)

    I remember the old marking system Millie. They could do that, The fact that there is an old marking system that apparently is no longer used,and no one remembers, illustrates that new light changes everything.

    can we start with asking what the source of this rumor is?

    it's possible someone heard what's going on in russia and then engaged in wishful thinking.

    What will happen is this:

    MILLIONS of Jehovah's Witnesses, during their private Bible Study and prayerful contemplation, will be moved by Jehovah's Magic Spirit to conclude that shunning is wrong. Then the Brooklyn Organization (BORG) will place their imprimatur on this new light.

    Then, worldwide, the JWs who have shunned you and treated you like dog shit stuck to their shoes will contact YOU and expect that you will not tell them where and when and how hard to fuck themselves, because Jehovah's Witnesses are "NOT" mind-controlled robots and have "NEVER" practiced shunning.
