    I often wondered what the JW's would do, if they had to make a forced exodus like the Israelites- would they help the weak, elderly and sick or just leave them by the side of the road for Caesar to take care of or dispose?

    HappyGuy, Thank you for posting that story.So I take it you are off the committee?LOL

    I am glad to see you stood up for what you thought was right.There should have been no problem at all with you voicing your opinion at the hall,provided you did not raise your voice or went crazy all over em.

    "the society is not a social welfare organization"

    Yet that is what the "society" is all about isn't it?Telling followers to go and help others get eternal life by preaching the good news about Jehovah's kingdom?We donated our time and money to go door to door to help others.So,why can't the society help it's own members when they need it?Your story makes me wonder why most witnesses go door to door.It has more to do with getting their own salvation than helping others.

    I look forward to reading more of you posts!

    The problem is that that elderly homelss woman could not grant them everlasting life in Paradise the way a Circuit Servant could.

    Time to get with the program!

    Simply disgusting! And still they have the ┬Ęboldness to write on the magazines (in the 'purpose' section) that they are a CHARITY society!!!!! Shame on them!

    How did the congregation vote regarding the donations for the CO? Did others think you made a good point or did they all side with the elders?
