WTS says you are free to do what we tell you

    Obviously, the Governing Body, those out of touch old men,are trying to allow witnesses the freedom to go to weddings and funerals in other churches knowing that the elders will do the dirty front line work from the platform of discouraging and "coding" the new rule that witnesses should not go to other churches for any reason.

    Maybe they could call it church "FRACTIONS", like blood fractions. Now witnesses may not go to whole churches, like they can't take whole blood, but they can attend church "fractions" basic components of whole churches.

    I know, I ramble. But pardon my vulgarity, the WTBS is full of shit.

    Hello everyone,

    as usual a very interesting topic.

    I do agree with RedhorseWoman comment:

    "To the "mature" Christian, there are many key words and phrases that indicate EXACTLY what is meant, and it goes way beyond the basic appearance of the information.

    Consider the poor JW who takes the article at face value, and then finds themselves being counseled or even reproved for singing a hymn at a worldly relative's funeral. Happens all the time."

    Very true, it depicts very well the WTBS attitude.

    Greetings, J.C.MacHislopp
