Any bethelite whom served the past 5/6 years remembers Gerritt Loesch's morning worship when he mentioned over 40% of those in special full-time service (Bethel, missionary, CO, DO) were on antidepressants, such as prozac. over 40%!!! Serious phenomena affecting many, but throw the tight reins, multiplies it
I know of one elder's son who committed suicide and received a memorial at the hall. So it mustn't be a strict rule.There's a lot of anecdotal evidence and statistics suggesting that Jehovah's Witnesses have a higher suicide rate than the general population, along with higher rates of depression and anxiety. So I think it depends on the circumstances and the victim's standing as a Jehovah's Witness at the time of death.
My question is: If they are taking antidepresants, where is the widely acclaimed holy spirit that they claim creat a peaceful condition in their hearts?
