I'm sure most of you who have spent any time in or around the org have noticed the emphasis placed on the need for an organization. I'm not sure if the emphasis has been increasing or if I am just more aware of it now, but the trust and faith that most witnesses place in "the organization" is shocking and scary at times. I was reading the account of the Tower of Babel a few days ago and noticed some similarities with the organization.
- The purpose of the tower was to create a unity among a group of people.
- All of the people spoke the same language.
- Jehovah caused confusion among them by creating new languages.
My take on the situation is that men were relying on each other as a physical group for a bond of unity rather than their faith and dependence on god to guide them through spirit. What are your thoughts?
