I received them a few days ago. There are 50 magazines from the 70s through the 90's. I've only been able to glance through and read a few articles but this is what struck me so far;
1. An article on Pioneering where they say that an older gentleman went to the elders to let them know he would have to stop pioneering because he, "Had bills to pay!" - tells how they asked him specifically what it was he needed. He explained that he needed new eyeglasses but could not afford them. They reasoned with him that he could spend a day working in the tobacco field, make the $20 to pay for glasses and go right back to Pioneering! Which he did. Goes on to say that he continued to pioneer until he died. ! WTF??
2. An article about an old woman, written by her, telling how she is annointed and will be ruling in Heaven with Christ. She tells her life story and goes on to talk about her fellow JW's who are looking forward to Paradise Earth, but not her, as she will be ruling with Jesus. I just read this thinking , "Oh my God, this woman is mentally ill and they've given her a platform!"
Other than that, I haven't read much. I did read a very good article in the Watchtower on why you should love your neighbor and one about T.V. "The Box that ruined the world" or something like that, that was a fantastic article and gave some very good points.
I can't wait to read through them more, should be interesting. I think the magazines do have some great articles and make great points save for the few WTF scatterings here and there......
