@Richard_I "Dwelling Together In Unity" aka the bethelite handbook:
Revised 1974 edition to the 1952 edition. The latest edition I believe is 2004 or 05 but I could'nt find it .....
Thank you notgoinback and welcome.
I only found out about the secret elders manual after I left and then the Banch Manual and now this, all saved and added to my JW Scrapbook.
This is the Standards Manual (2005), for proofreaders:
(pretty boring stuff)
Yeah, I remember these manuals well to good...also you can thank JWN member Elsewhere for the publication of these manuals. He got into a real fight with the WT and it was through his undercover action that it was possible to get them out and into the public. Unfortunately he is not posting as much as a couple of years ago. As I remember it was a pretty heroic move, but thanks to some now this is available for you to learn more about the WT$.
The Branch Organization Manual might sound boring, but it says more about the Borg than you might think. The right combination of information, used in the right way...
They don't need people that know Greek or Hebrew. They need absolute die hard loyalists. They do the technical work with software programs, that have everything at their fingertips (evolvment of the old MEPS System, they added more and more modules for this, also a complete Watchtower library CD that goes back to the volumes published around 1920's). THAT is why they need foremost company men to do this kind of work. They will read a whole lot of damning information.
@notgoinback Thank you for that Standards Manual (2005). The last part about SPECIAL TERMINOLOGY did have some interesting guidelines about disallowed expressions in the literature:
|Approved Term||Disallowed Term|
|blinded, deceived, or comparable expressions||brainwashed|
When refering to the brothers
|Jehovah’s Witnesses||Jehovah’s Christian Witnesses (opposition group)|
one of Jehovah’s Witnesses
|a Jehovah’s Witness|
Individuals who have been designated to attend special conventions
|unassigned territory||isolated territory|
Just sent that link off the lady who is dealing with me from the RC. No harm in it, no harm in trying. I think it's great to have this material.
Thanks for uploading those links....

Probably don't want 'em, either.
