    Stop asking – Decide for yourself!

    Today I uploaded a new article highlighting the method of choice by Watchtower’s current Governing Body for dealing with problematic details haunting its doctrines. Moving forward the current Governing Body will expand on this theme.

    My article is titled Stop asking – Decide for yourself! and is available at:

    Very interesting. I always enjoy your blog, thanks for the great effort you put forth to make this imformation available.

    Marvin, have you followed the threads started by new poster here Damn The Watchtower?

    I think he would be interested in your comments...

    You might want to re-read your blog post and correct the spelling errors.

    That does sound like it could be a precursor to a significant change, at least in philosophy if not doctrine.

    The odd thing is, it sounds like they are going to be come less controlling, after a century plus of increasing their control over their members.

    I.e., if anybody writes in with any question they don't want to answer, they'll just send back essentially a form letter saying something like "See the 10/15/11 WT & make up your own mind".

    It makes them sound schizophrenic - on the one hand, they're all "don't watch vampire movies, don't join facebook, don't go to college, don't have sex, don't go on so many vacations, don't don't don't...", yet on the other hand they say "We can't tell you what to do - figure it out for yourself".

    Maybe the hardliners were all on a visit to the branch office in some exotic locale and the writing committee snuck that article in there.

    I appreciate the thought. If you have something specific in mind I'm all ears for whatever help you can offer.

    What misspellings do you notice?

    Hey Martin, there is one error in particular I noticed, in this paragraph.

    This is made worse again because birthers and shakers of these doctrines are effectively out of the picture and newbies are left with problematic details that are impossible to keep quite.

    I think you meant, "quiet."

    Don't bother us (you faithless ones and "apostates") with your endless questions. That's all they're saying.

    They're not pretending to be less controlling. (Look at what the Joseph drama's views of how ABSOLUTELY CONTROLLING the elders are and how that is simply supposed to be accepted).
