When I explain my feelings and beliefs, and discuss a number of the scandals surrouding the WT, they agree with me 100% - even expressing some things I didn't expect them to say as far as doctrine and teachings. In other words, they can see the obvious problems and want them to change
All of them little trust in the leadership,
However, they all have mentioned that they stay in and are "waiting on Jehovah" to cleanse the organization. My position with them is that I will wait for the cleansing to take place before I ever decide to consider returning. (I dont think I have too much to worry about!!)
Have you experienced this with friends and family? They see the issues, are troubled by many of the problems, but still think God is using the WT. Therefore, they believe a time is coming when the "wheat and weeds" wil be separated and the organization will be cleaned......
I am thinking about a way to approach this subject reasonably.......these are really kind people who love God, but can't separate him from the WT at this point, unfortunately.__________Pyramidscheme
I would bring up a real situation and ask them would it have been wise to wait on the Kingdom
when there was somethin' within their power ( through Caesar allowed by God ) that could have been done
Case in Point : The emancipation of slaves , the Allied forces stoppin' Hitler, or a child bein' molested
ask them anything that would sound ridiculous in the same sentence as " Waiting on Jehovah "
Ask them, do they honestly think Jehovah would mind if someone made the life of his loved ones easier
until the Kingdom finally arrives. How many times have the WTS used Caesars laws in court
while waitin' on Jah ?
