That internet article was boring. I mean, where are the porn and apostate references? C'mon WT, you can do better than that!
Gems from the August 15, 2011 WT
How easy could it be for them to fabricate the partaker numbers?
haha they are ridiculous. The irony is that the R&F will be ok with that answer. SOOOOOO if some of them are crazy and some others are still trapped by their past religious beliefs.... Why THE HELL do they bother to count them?
Duh! ah lets count all people who left the WT here in the board.... ah some 20000 but we dont really keep record.. and by the way some might be crazy and some might still be JWs but lets print 20000
The stupified version of the Watchtower words it this way regarding Memorial partakers:
"some may have the wrong idea about going to heaven because of what they believed in the past or because they have mental or emotional problems."
"The Governing Body does not keep a list of the names of everyone who partakes of the bread and wine at the Memorial."
In both versions they reference the June 15, 2009, Watchtower, page 24. Anyone have what that says?
"....Why pass onto others something we cannot verify?"
Well, you tell me!
I just read this on JW.ORG and I thought I had something to tell you all
Anyway, the G B now dismisses the new partakers as being nut jobs or frauds....how loving. What should Bro Faithful do if he really feels the "upward call", ignore it? or face derision from the congregation...
They say about the number of real anointed, that we do not need to know......We certainly needed to know when the numbers were decreasing nicely!
If they are one "little flock", why not keep a register ? You would think they would want to know who was left and who they were. If "The Lord" asked them to gather the "little flock" - they would not know who they were or where to find them - some shepherds !
'or e ven mental or emotional imbalance—might cause some to assume mistakenly that they have the heavenly calling'
Jesus Christs' reply to the above WTBTS statement: ....'Oh so now you're saying that some of those my Father has selected are retarded'
To be fair I could believe some of these guys are mentally unstable.
On the publishers record card it used to have a box where the S.O would write in O/S or A, to show which group you professed to belong to.
Do those cards still have that ? If they do the GB could easily find out who all 11,000 plus partakers are.
Of course they don't need to know, they have NEVER consulted any one of the professed anointed on doctrine or procedure, ever.
