TMS, thank you for sharing that stuff. People really need to hear this shat before they go pondering the real meaning of "holy spirit". It just seems that this holy spirit is fail-proof, even when it's "workings" cleary screw everything up.
I've heard it so stated so damn often whenever someone get deleted or whatever that it's not holy spirit's fault, but somehow this was all part of the big game plan.
So a JW who is secretly leading a double life gets appointed. (Holy spirit saw qualities in him, he is a "gift in men") He operates as an elder for years, making life-changing decisions that make deep impacts on people's lives such as disfellowshipping, hospital liasons, etc. But he continues to practice his "vices" in secret. (Holy Spirit allows this to continue) Then he gets caught in one of his vices and is deleted (Holy Spirit acts like It just found out and now acts to remove him and keep the congregation clean). Accounts later come out that verify that many of the decisions and actions he made while an elder were wrong and unfair. (But you can't blame Holy Spirit.)
yup. makes total sense.
