Just got a visit from elders
I didn't know about Kent posting KM's. I've never visited that site.
Latte - Thank you and <<<<hugs>>>>> to you too. i have got a brilliant solicitor. All court orders made so far have been in my favour. (Soon to be Ex)husband has shown himself up again and again. i have found hard-core porn sites on the computer that he was visiting. Boy is he in trouble, with my solicitor, the judge, and the PO/CO and local elders!!
Sometimes in the Kingdom Ministry you will find little sentences that are more strongly worded, because they will only ever be read by the baptized JWs that are sucked in already. Like for example one article talking about going in the ministry in bad weather. It advised taking short breaks, but only if absolutely necessary (or words to that effect). You would never find a statement like that in the Awake, because it would NEVER entice people in!!
Also statements that say that JWs are the only true religion. It is hinted at in other publications, but the only place I have been able to find it so clearly put is in a Kingdom Ministry!
I was reading through some old ones a few weeks ago - what a scream!! How many times we were told not to take large cool boxes to the assemblies!!

TB:WTF??? Alan F may be right after all.
First, look through the KM to see if there is a particular article that the Elders wanted you to see due to our own unique circumstances.
IF NOT, I would be very careful about posting here quotes or info found in it.
Post away, Tweetie Bird! After all, don't the JWs want you to spread to truth to the best of your abililty?
You've got to be kidding. I had a hard time getting them when I was ATTENDING. I usually only made 1 or 2 Theo Min Schools/Svc Mtgs a month but somehow the brother just couldn't manage to get one to me. I usually ended up attending the meeting without the KM and didn't know what the heck was going on. That shows you how much of that lovin' attention I got. And they waltz right up to your doorstep with a KM? That's very, very strange. Not to spread paranoia but they may have an ulterior motive.
"Wicked men obey from fear; good men, from love".... Aristotle. You can love and obey Christ without intervention from an organization.
I think they (the elders) just don't communicate with one another.
We were privately reproved a few years ago (in a different cong) for trying pot once and the elders in the new congregation approached us after about a year and a half after we started in this hall, as they just realized that we still did not have our "privileges" back. LOL! They wanted to meet with us so that we could once again start giving talks at the ministry school and husband could give prayer. What a joke! We've made a handful of meetings in 2 years and they want to give us our privileges back.
I got news for them, I don't want them back. Not now, not ever.
"I must stand up in search of the truth, if I don't I only roll with the flow of the lie and make it stronger.
i'm so old (stopped 40+years ago) my first memory of it was called the "informant" I stopped when I moved out after high school.
Search Atlantis' posts. You will get the KMs in PDF before they arrive at the KH. lol
