    It's one of those "We absolutely never gave you a ham sandwich, we just gave you a piece of bread, some mayonaise, some ham, some lettuce, some tomato, a little salt and pepper and more mayonaise, and another piece of bread, but we did not EVER EVER want you to ever think of putting them all together and make a ham sandwich out of it, OH NO, that's not what we wanted you to do"



    marked and bumped!! This is a thread I was looking for all last week. Those quotes fro Aunt Bee are going on my refrigerator.

    w08 4/15 p.7 par.19 Repudiate “Valueless Things”

    When it comes to valueless words, elders too learn an important lesson. Whenever they are called upon to give counsel, they bear in mind their limitations and do not presume to offer counsel solely from their own personal store of knowledge. They should always point to what the Bible says. A sound rule is found in the words of the apostle Paul: “Do not go beyond the things that are written.” (1 Cor. 4:6) Elders do not go beyond the things that are written in the Bible. And by extension, they do not go beyond the Bible-based counsel written in the publications of the faithful and discreet slave.

    And a side note: When the two conflict, the "publications" take precedence.
