On average, how many highly trained Bible students would you estimate existed in your Kingdom Hall? To define this further, I am thinking of men or women who studied more than Watchtower literature, spent time in libraries to dig deeper than most shallow minded drones.
How can someone be a baptized JW for forty five years and be stupid regarding "The Trintiy, Hell Fire, First Century Culture, Church Father's teachings, Rapture, Heaven, reasons for defending the reliability of Bible Texts."?
Could the watering down, diluted teachings be the problem with "New-Gen's" impotent Bible understanding or lack of understanding?
I kid you not, the most self-assured dubs, have not peered into the "deeper things" of God's Word. Would a Television, Computer, Facebook or any other kind of electronic media hiatus(fasting) help?
Instead of craving a big 32oz "Porterhouse Steak", I am surrounded by men and women who enjoy predigested milk, fresh off the udders of the Watchtower Cows. Reviewing the last few Sunday Study articles, nothing "deep" is mentioned, just the same pressure to preach more and more in field service. Your posts confirm even our Circuit Stars are losing their shine, treating Jehovah's word as ordinary, not practicing what you preach, is the fastest way to have Jehovah pull his Holy Spirit from you! When was the last time you came across a practing Jehovah Witness apologist who impressed you with her Bible wisdom?
Would allowing the elders and servants more wiggle room with talks, updating material in outlines that are stuck in the 1970s, bring out more joy and effort to educate the flock? Instead these outlines are another form of control that qualsh the speaker's creative juices!
