Years ago, congregations all over the world were built up
and solidified by the door to door work. Since all Witness
meetings were related to the field ministry, they had relevance.
Going out in service kept the organization strong.
Not any more.
Field service - and the unrelenting emphasis to participate
in it - is destroying the organization. How so?
Aside from third world countries, most of the door to door
ministry is imaginary. Homes are empty, people won't come to
the door, and actually quoting the Bible at doors has become
a rare event for countless Witnesses. The 'ministry' therefore
quickly declines into attempted magazine selling - in between
coffee breaks - and long waits in the car.
The result is PRETENSE!
The current generation of Witness kids has no experience with
a door to door that actually generated converts. Because of this,
both field service and the 5 meetings that are linked to them,
TEACH PRETENSE AND A SHALLOW HYPOCRISY THAT DRIVE WITNESS KIDS
INTO THE PRACTISE OF A 'DOUBLE LIFE'.
If any of you loyal defenders out there will meditate on this
just a little, you'll begin to see how foolish this structure
of meetings and field service looks to Witness kids. ("Mommy,
why does the emperor have no clothes?")
MORE IMPORTANTLY, you will begin to understand why the behavior
of Witness youth is becoming such a crisis.
After years of this empty practise, A TERRIBLE THING HAPPENS
IN PRIVATE TO WITNESS KIDS. They say in their minds:
"My parents are idiots. They are religious fanatics"
And THEN THEY THINK THIS DEVASTATING THOUGHT!
"So, why should I listen to anything they say?"
In this one moment, you have amplified the naturally rebellious
tendencies of a teenager a HUNDRED FOLD!!!!!!! ALL OF THE WISDOM
YOU HAVE GATHERED AS AN ADULT that they need to become happy,
productive adults IS DESTROYED BECAUSE YOU HAVE LOST ALL
CREDIBILITY BY INSISTING ON ATTENDANCE IN DEAD MEETINGS
AND DOOR TO DOOR SALES!!!!
THIS IS WHY Witness kids are becoming WORSE than 'worldly
children'. This is why they throw off restraint THAT THEIR
WORLDLY PEERS MAY GRASP THE VALUE OF.
This is why the Watchtower is destroying itself and wiping out
its future - its children - by fanatical insistence on meetings
and a dead ministry - that ruin the credibilty of parents
in the context of morals and spirituality.
If you want to ruin your kids, obey the Watchtower.
If you want good kids, teach them compassion and love
and devote your time and attention only to activities
that actually promote charity and kindness.
Don't let them wreck your family.
