    I personally recorded a District Overseer's statement he made in a talk, regarding calling someone a "despicable fool". (Matthew 5:22)

    He basically equated that term with calling someone an apostate!!! (the original Greek word used, can mean God-less)

    And what did Jesus say would happen to such a name-caller? Gehenna!!! Have you ever heard anybody calling someone 'an apostate'? Me neither!!! :)

    I'd like to share it with others here, but don't know how to upload the very short sound file. Can someone advise me how to do so? Thanks in advance!

    Did this DO recommend not calling people an apostate?

    No, better than that - he said that if you called someone such a name, you could be liable for Gehenna!!

    That's right. I reserve the right to call my own self an apostate!

    How curious. Well, lots of people just put audio on YouTube with some text on-screen to explain what you're hearing, but if you don't like that, what about SoundCloud?


    Sounds like the WTBTS is getting some fall-out over their hate speech last summer. If they really believed they had the truth, they would call a spade a spade, and damn the consequences. No, they would rather buy and sell real estate, and have dubbies sit quietly by a rolly-cart, displaying life-saving rescue information..

    I would love to play that quote for my local BOE. Do you think they would apologize to me? LOL!! Maybe I could handle a microphone again?!?!

    Maybe that DO is awake and is sharing some TTATT on the sly.

    THANKS APOGNOPHOS - Here's the D.O.'s statement;

    He is effectively telling the GB et al that they are condemning themselves and blatantly disregarding Christ's warning if they call anyone an apostate!
