    :) Just my reasoning on the way this GB is taking a firmer grip of everyones' thoughts and actions!

    Sleep well!

    I have been trying to figure out how explain the recent and HUGE doctrinal shifts of the WTBTS since the 2012 annual meeting, and the accompanying modernizing of the JW official website.

    The most honest and logical answer to all the recent changes is that the WTS. is trying to reform itself

    using new strategic marketing schemes to make their organization still appear viable in both the members

    minds as well the general public's.

    The hiding away past publications is part of that strategy, announcing the WTS.

    has made mistakes in the past is another, the focusing proclamation that the GB of the WTS.

    is the FDSL. etc ....

    Other possible changes could be changing the name to some of the long standing literature titles like

    the Watchtower to something else ( remember that was done once before ) .

    The dropping of some critically held doctrines like 1914 is another possibility into the future.

    If you were running this religious publishing house and you realized that past proclamations and

    doctrines were openly false and perhaps just construed as advantageous marketing tools in

    proliferating the organization's literature, you would probably start making some strategic changes too.

    According to one of their kingdom ministry's

    One wrinkle... is JJ Abrams saying we must follow his films because God chose Gene Roddenberry's series as the only correct sci-fi franchise in 1977?

    @pitjw, I'm glad I wasn't sipping any liquid when I read that. LOL!

    I have the same problems as you Data, can't stop thinking about TTATT and how to save ones from the Borg, very frustrating.


    LOL!! Gene Roddenberry has more street cred than the GB!!

    Nice analogy DD, I also think a out TTATT but what can we do? Not much but I am not going to simply sit around for the rest of my life. ABSOLUTELY NOT

    It's all about rights. JJ Abrams couldn't have pullled it off without the approval of those in charge of the rights of the Star Trek franchise. An older GB member has to grant rights to the newer GB members. Any ideas from new members has to be approved from the older so it can be justified as right. Or they just vote on it and hope God plays a role in the voting outcome. You don't want things left to chance.

    A very nice analogy
