Gerrit Losch was actually once an apostate.

    A JW friend of mine (who was one of my besties until I told him I didn't believe JW religion anymore) used to live in Austria and for a while in the 70's was in the same congregation as Losch. They used to spend some time together in the ministry. My JW friend tells me that he and Losch used to often talk about how they believed the WT was wrong about certain interpretations of the bible, for example, how at the time the WT taught that the mustard tree used by Jesus in an illustration represented an evil kingdom, and Losch and Friend didn't think that was right.

    Then Friend tells me that when Losch was appointed to the GB, many of the things they disagreed with and put forth alternative explanations to became new light. Losch changed some old understandings or influenced their change when he joined the GB.

    The conclusion then is, that if Losch secretly didn't believe certain doctrines or interpretations and discussed them with Friend, then he was an apostate by the JW definition of the term. Isn't it considered apostasy if you believe something different and then share your thoughtcrime with others? Losch was an apostate by JW standards then.

    Every "new light" has once been apostate thinking!The present teaching of the "generation" must have been severely apostate before it became official dogma..........the rank and file would not dare speaking of overlain generations before 2010!

    Interesting. Maybe we should all join the GB. :-)

    By the way...I think old Gerrit Lösch is the one who has been in the GB the longest time now...probaly he has a lot of power about certain teachings/dogma

    The important thing is that he's not an apostate now. He's a pillar within the Christian congregation.

    He does not believe all the crap of the watchtower......i met him in 2002 in TN and he came acrooss as a jerk and power hungry individual that loves the attention and worship given to him by

    dummies of the rank and files. I used to be one of them for 32 years.

    You mean a crooked shyster, a leading executive directer of the Watchtower Corporation.

    So are you saying you agree he was an apostate at one time ? Was he ever counselled ? reproved ? disfellowshipped ?

    Or was his transgressions simply shoved under the carpet .

    Just asking.
