I read that some are quite happy that another GB bites the dust.
I think of my "faithful" elderly JW mother who helped many many families come into the "Truth". She's an intelligent woman. However, she's blinded by her beliefs (being in a cult). She is a Witness that is regularly visited by elders, missionaries, Bethelites, etc. They are "encouraged" by her experiences, joy and enthusiasm of the "Truth".
I don't understand totally why she "loves the Truth". But she does. She might even question things in her head and sometimes outwardly does. But she continues to draw strength from her convictions.
Isn't it possible that an old man like Jack Barr could fall into the same category??
I'm glad I'm not the ultimate judge of anyone anymore. It's one of the reasons I hated being an elder those last few years.
