An old co-worker who trained to be a Jesuit Priest, is very intrigued with the ex-JW movement. We share laughs and have some off-beat phone discussions at times on theology. Yesterday was about money, religion and "WWJD" what would Jesus do if he and the apostles actually returned today.
We decided he and the apostles would probably be seated around a picnic table in a park with a Laptop writing a "Blog", have a Facebook "Fan Page", and make press releases...making it entirely possible for "every eye to see him".
The Pope and the Governing Body would denouce them as Heritics. And since they had no fancy church, most "Chistians" would ignore them as homeless.
He would be as pissed off today with the Christian Pharasees as he was 2,000 years ago. Church leaders would be appaled at the idea of selling comfy digs to help the poor, or the idea that a "blog" could get the work done for a few bucks and no infrastructure.
The more things change the more they are the same.
