Greetings, dear MS, and peace to you! Your commentary states:
As a community, Jehovah’s Witnesses are left to be preyed upon by the whims of Watchtower’s Governing Body while the ranks of locally respected, well-trained and selfless men and women is decimatedby needless frustration and having their reputations besmirchedby Watchtower’s organizational system.
I would like to offer that that is not entirely accurate, but what is occurring is actually in fulfillment of my Lord's words to his disciples recorded at John 10:12, 13:
"The hired hand(the WTBTS GB) is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep. So when he (the GB) sees the wolf (certain COs and elders) coming, he abandons the sheep and runs away (ignoring the cries of the sheep while doing so). Then the wolf (self-righteous COs/elders with evil intent, and so looking to do harm to the sheep) attacks the flock (which they accomplish by wrongfully labelling and expelling them... so that they are now without protection and subject to being "devoured" by other wild animals, including a "roaring lion") and scatters it (because in order to stay alive, the sheep must now run away!). The man (GB) runs away (does not intervene or even respond to cries for help) because he is a hired hand and cares nothing for the sheep. "
Of course, this has had fulfillment on other religious organizations (Judaism, prior to and up to at least the 1st centure; the RCC; LDS, etc.), but has its fulfillment TODAY... in the WTBTS.
Why am I pointing this out? Because many make the mistake of letting these "overseers" off the hook... while blaming the GB. The GB is reprehensible, yes, in their abandonment of the sheep. But it is NOT the GB who instigates these "witch hunts"... nor is it they who directly place themselves "over" such sheep. The CO's and elders consider themselves RESPONSIBLE for the sheep; yet, it is THEY who snatch and scatter the sheep... with their lies, slander, lack of love, disinterest, and sometimes all out wickedness.
That they think they will be let off the hook because "the GB told me to do it," is an error. They forget, they not only have a "double" honor... but double accountability. "The Devil made me do it," won't suffice... for EACH ONE... must and will render an accounting.
That is why, although one may believe he can do good from inside that Harlot... and continuing to be a part of her will help others, nothing could be further from the truth. If they remain, they WILL receive her plagues... for having SHARED... in her sins. That is the reason for the admonishment to "GET OUT OF HER!" That some think they know better than the Spirit... which says to get out... and think they can stay and be safe... is one who if fooling himself. Even if such one never sits on a JC... or takes part in an investigation, etc.,... one is still "part" of her. TOUCHING her, the "unclean thing" that she is. And it is said that such ones... will NOT escape.
I implore all who are still fooling themselves: GET... OUT... OF... HER. Because if you don't, you WILL find yourselves like the Jews to REFUSED to acknowledge the presence of the DISGUSTING THING in Jerusalem... so as to FLEE to safety. You think you are doing "some good." There IS NO GOOD in her. Because a LITTLE leaven... ferments the ENTIRE lump.
Again, peace to you!
