Agonus, you said: Folks, I've come to a conclusion. The WT is doing this intentionally. Even THEY can't be this colossally stupid. They're testing the loyalty of the R&F. Expect more "sifting" to come as the insanity escalates. This is Endgame.
I thought about this all day yesterday after reading about the “generation” change. I asked my self…Why? What are they trying to do? And my friend…I’m afraid that you might be right. Think about it, perhaps there is the possibility that the WT/GB is trying to strive on chaos. It could be an attempt to push the “conscious class” out and self-induce a drop in the R&F’s “theocratic activity”, then say that the “drop” provides further support that the “End is near”, because the bible predicted that “Jehovah’s judgment will start in His house”. That many JWs were not humble enough to follow the direction of the FDS, that they were “serving Jehovah” with the wrong motives…I can almost hear them saying “remember folks, Jesus said that the road to “everlasting life is narrow and not many will enter the Kingdom of God”, therefore, we should not be dishearten by the number of JW leaving God’s Organization, after all by their action they are showing that their hearts were not truly in the Truth... Jehovah wants quality not quantity”. They’ll nurture the WT’s loyalists that blindly continues supporting the GB, get a fresh set of New JWs and continue business as usual.
These are just some of the things that’s making it clear that this is a deliberate attempt to drive out those who are using their brains:
1) The constant call for submission and obedience to the GB.
2) The increasing # of partakers
3) The bold lies and misinformation in the publications, “Millions Now Living Might Never Die…” etc.
4) Asking for contribution by charging Credit & Debit cards at the conventions.
5) The April 2010 “generation” change without a decent or intellectually drafted explanation..
This and much more. Oh well, they are just making things a lot easier for some.
