    CRAZYBLONDE- Great thread ! Thanks for sharing this. These guys at the head of WT land really are running scared the last year or two. " By word or action, may we never challenge the channel of communication that Jehovah is using today. " Wow is right. So then , EVEN IF THE FAITHFUL SLAVE IS WRONG ? Don't challenge them ? That appears to be the message. The witnesses are to just assume ANYTHING the GB says is straight from Jehovah, allegedly, so challenging them is challenging God. Pretty scary stuff - especially if the GB and leaders of the WT society go wack and tell everybody to jump off a cliff ! 7 million people will jump right with them . Definitely too much control from a notorious high control group. I fear for our JW relatives still in. Peace out, Mr.Flipper

    Is this the part where we pretend it's acceptable for a jw to socialize with ex-jws and apostates?

    Don't get me wrong... I'm happy you're here. I just have issues with hypocrisy...

    By word or action, may we never challenge the channel of communication that Jehovah is using today.

    So, I can still challenge the WTS teachings, then...?

    I view my place within the religion as I would view a pile of dog s***. Celibacy? Value Destroyer Training School? Ruining others' lives? Second Dark Ages? That is a "treasure"?

    It's so amazing how the GB keeps drawing parallels with people who were undoubtedly directed by God. Moses and Korah are one of their favorites. They expect us to make a mental jump and accept them as directed by God, even though they make doctrinal mistakes. How many of the ten commandments were updated by Moses because of "new light"? And oh, if they do make mistakes they're suddenly "just human". But if I don't think independently how am I supposed to know that when I submit to their human laws, they aren't in fact against God's laws? Ultimately God could make me resposible for following men's teachings instead of God's teachings.

    Oh, and there's a difference between "independent thinking" and "disrespectful". Funny how the bereans very rarely come up in WT literature, except when advising outsiders to check their faith. The bereans had respectful independent thinking, and they were commended for it.

    Assuming of course Moses and Korah even existed I am not sure I would regard their guidance by God as undoubted. At least the Borg actually exist (regretably).
