yes, there is. elders are told to be very cautious about emailing experiences or using emailed experiences and they pass this advice along. jeez you cant have it both ways. dont you think the WT is scared of the internet and too controlling of what members do? and youre complaining that theyre not controlling enough?? ULs are a part of every culture and JW ULs are just another group of them with interesting twists. you dont have to find fault with the WT every time you read anything JW-related, you know
actually you missed my point- I have not desire to HAVE IT BOTH WAYS
the telling of tall tales by the organizations repS co, do AND elders and repeated by publishers have been going on long before the Internet and Email came along-
I can't comment on any BOE letter - , but there was no letter in 1998 when i stepped down, the 98 Nov KM did mentioned what you spoke about in ref to Email exp ,
but my point is i have been hearding tall tales for over 35 yrs and the "ISSUE" of not putting a stop to it has not occured I was merely highlighting the fact that when the wt want to control it's people on an issue it can ask any jw about missing meeting and field service, they know what they are suppose to do
but have you every heard a bro tell one of those wild tall tales and someone say- "You need to make sure that is accurate before you repeat that"
of course not for the wilder the story the more it shows that Jah is backing us
that was my point , not whether wt has enough control or not
