This is the premise of the thread..So this is what I`m posting to..
They are Witnesses. They talk to df'd people. They love God. They are most kind to their neighbors. They go out of their way to help people---any people, not just JWs. They drink a little too much alcohol at times. They love to socialize. They sometimes miss meetings for work related reasons. They go on 3 or 4 week vacations and don't attend the meetings.
They are about as "normal" as anyone I know----except their Witnesses!
These people are Witness`s..They sometimes drink too much..
They miss meetings and can afford to go on lengthly vacation..Talk to DF`d people..
That would be a target on a lot of JW`s backs..
Money can go along way in keeping the wolves at bay..
Donations when needed..A few bucks for the CO when he comes to town..Ect..ect..
I`m not suggesting it will keep a person from getting the axe,if a DF offense comes up..
I`m saying money can and does,smooth things out,for life as a JW..
Your assumption that JWs with money have an easier time in the congregation
indicates to me that you haven't experienced it because the exact opposite is true.
So..If I fly the CO and his Mrs to vacation with me in Mexico..All expenses paid..
My life is going to be miserable as a JW?..LOL!!..
It doesn`t work that way..Socializing with WBT$ Brass is helpful..
