Motivating Right Hearted Ones to Love Their Spiritual Mother
Mr. Brock makes good comments along the way pointing out Watchtower methodology to twist & control.
Seems like "mother" is getting reintroduced into the JW lingo. It went out a fashion for some decades.
CREEPY is RIGHT!!! OMG! I cannot believe it. Is there anything the dubs cannot be spoon fed?
So if we are all a family, then we should listen to both our Father (Jehovah) and our Mother (the Org.), where does that leave the son?
Not to hijack this thread, but the "mother" analogy brings to mind another problem they have. The UN NGO issue. If the org is "mother" then that would go something like this:
Father is away for a long time. He leaves mother in charge of all the kids. One of the children finds out that mom is spending every Wednesday down at a coffe house flirting with Fathers biggest enemy. She knows how the children would feel abou this, so she does it on the sly. What happens though when one of the children finds out. Perhaps you confront Mom and say, "Look, what you are doing is wrong, and dad would not approve" The mother then says "Ok, ok, we were just having coffee, it is not like I was actually sleeping with him, I will stop having coffee with him, but you better drop it, if you don't let it go I will turn all your brothers and sisters against you. Who do you think they will believe, me their loving mom, or you? Consider yourself warned!
To me if you are going to call the org, mother that analogy fits the UN/NGO mess to a tee.
Excellant commentary, well worth listening to.
I can just hear all the die hard jdubs talking to each other about the new light they heard over the weekend.
"Mmmm did you taste the delicious Kool-Aid?"
The bible doesn't shine forth light by itself? The bible and God is not enough! Oh boy! Unbelievable!!!
(Galatians 4:25, 26) . . .. 26 But the Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother.

Whom, then, did “the free woman” Sarah and her son, Isaac, represent? Paul indicated that Sarah, the “barren woman,” symbolized God’s wife, the heavenly part of his organization. This heavenly woman was barren in that before Jesus came she had no spirit-anointed “children” on the earth. (Galatians 4:27; Isaiah 54:1-6) However, at Pentecost 33 C.E., holy spirit was poured out on a group of men and women who were thus born again as children of this heavenly woman. The children produced by this organization were adopted as sons of God and became joint heirs with Jesus Christ under a new covenant relationship. (Romans 8:15-17) One of these children, the apostle Paul, could write: “The Jerusalem above is free, and she is our mother.”—Galatians 4:26.
This woman/mother is only that of the anointed jws per WTS. Then who is the mother of the rest of the jws?
