I was brought up to reply to a question that I didn't understand, or know the answer to, in a modest, humble manner - true, sometimes it was embarrassing, but if I didn't know the answer, I'd (usually) admit it, and then start trying to find the answer. This was time consuming, and required work - sometimes, a lot of research. But, it has usually stood me in good stead. Having spent most of my working life in sales, this approach has often assisted me maintain a professional manner and provide the element of trust that is necessary to make a sale. Some salespeople I've worked with felt a need to have 'instant' answers to everything!
I find it difficult to like arrogant people. So does my wife. In fact, probably everyone alive on this planet! So why have I started this thread?
I've just realized why the WT religion always has to have a dogmatic answer to everything - even when they really don't have a clue and are only guessing at best, or downright lying! As a mind-controlling cult they must reason that they can't possibly be seen not to be in control of those being duped. Perhaps this is the 'real' reason for the spate of 'crazy' changes in recent months? Can you contemplete the GB saying, "Well that's a tricky one! - we'll need to do some deep research on that before considering a reply - you know, maybe we'll not even be able to come up with any answer". Maybe such a modest response would help them retain a larger percentage of their dwindling followers.
I don't like arrogant WT reasoning, and blame fear of not going along with it on my wife's entrapment within the cult.
How do you feel? How many reading this think along similar lines?
