Hey Paulapollos, I much appreciate your time and your information. I'd like to ask about statements you made in an earlier post:
2 elders and the servant involved in what the Society laughably refers to as "confidential" work.
Could you give us some examples of this "confidential" work you and the others were involved in, like a specific reference, please don't misunderstand my intentions I'm not questioning the work, just have no idea what's involved from further descriptions and details will perhaps give me an "aha" moment on this point. Thanks.
All 4 were disfellowshipped for apostasy - the MS went first, then the three elders in due time, one of whom was a partaker of the emblems.
Could you tell us if the work involved lead this brother to partake of the emblems. Like for example did the things he learned from reading the Scriptures develop in him the want to partake. Sort of like what Ed Dunlap realized (which I read in CoC). Of course if you aren't the brother involved you may only be able to give an approximation of what he had in mind if anything. But you must have spoken with one another, if not before the DF'ing then perhaps afterwards.
I'd love to be able to hear more from you and the other brothers involved if you can encourage them to take part in this forum.
Again, I much appreciate your time and your willingness to share your thoughts and experience here.
