The mind control in this latest Oct.15th is amazing. Our lurking JW friend sent us this and it basically tellls witnesses that their opinions don't matter and only God is good . It belittles independent thinking and explains that each rank and file JW is owned by the alleged " faithful and discreet slave " . It is taken from the first study article " Be Aglow with the Spirit " .
In paragraph 7 it states, " Our being adequately qualified issues from God . Therefore, we should not glorify ourselves. We should humbly recognize that any fruitage we may have in our ministry is the result of God's blessing, NOT OUR OWN COMPETENCE. " ( Translation : We could have anybody deliver our WT message to people , you are nothing special. You are just a vehicle or tool that God, er the WT society is using. ) After quoting the scripture that tells us not to think more of ourselves than necessary the article continues, " It is necessary that we have self-respect and find joy and satisfaction in our kingdom service . " ( Do you think ? ) It continues, " However, being modest, or being aware of our limitations , will prevent us from BECOMING OPINIONATED . " ( Translation : We know you want self respect but you won't get self respect by BECOMING OPINIONATED ! You'll get self respect by doing what WE tell you to do ! And saying what WE want you to say. OH- And by the way you need to learn to enjoy it. )
So essentially rank and file witnesses are being told that they ARE NOT COMPETENT . And they can't have ANY OPINIONS outside of what they are told by the WT society. No wonder witnesses have low self esteem.
Next notice THIS quote from paragraph 10, " Today, the other sheep are part of " all things " placed by Jehovah under the headship of his son. They are also among the " belongings " that Christ has entrusted to his " FAITHFUL AND DISCREET SLAVE " . Those with an earthly hope SHOULD THEREFORE , recognize Christ as their head and BE SUBMISSIVE to the FAITHFUL AND DISCREET SLAVE and it's GOVERNING BODY and to the MEN APPOINTED as OVERSEERS in the congregation. " ( Translation : We, the WT society own you the rank and file publisher. You are our BELONGING. Don't forget that fact. You need to obey us, you SHOULD obey us because essentially if you have seen us- you've seen God Jehovah and Jesus. )
I truly feel sorry that 7 million people have given over their power to these old men in New York. The rank and file Jehovah's Witnesses are being conned into giving up the control of their lives to men WHO WANT that power and control over them. This is typical of mind control cults to make their members feel worthless and powerless within themselves. And for any of us who have Jehovah's Witness family still attending- THIS is what they will teach our family in December ! So- How do you feel about this information ? Does it make you mad as it does me that people's freedom is taken from them ? As always I look forward to any and all comments you have ! Hope you all are well. Take care, Peace out to all, Mr. Flipper
