    I read a comment on another thread that made me think of this topic.

    How many catchphrases are used by the GB and organisation in an attempt to control or gain power or prevent questioning?

    Feel free to list as many as you can think of!

    I'll start:

    "Keeping up with the celestial Chariot"

    "Looking with eyes of faith"

    "Patiently waiting on Jehovah"

    "The light gets brighter"

    " the brothers and sisters "

    " a privileged people "

    " a people for special possession "

    " The friends "

    " the truth "

    " new light "

    " Jehovah's progressive organization "

    " Governing Body appointed by holy spirit "

    " elders appointed by holy spirit "

    Those are some I can think of off the top of my head that cause JW's not to question anything, it affects their mind, emotions, relationships- everything

    Here's another one - " doubting can be the beginning seeds of apostasy or leaning in that direction " I've seen that used as well

    I thin people rattle off "jehovahs earthly organization" without really thinking about what they are saying. to me that is where the real control lies. Getting people to accept blandly statements like that.

    Millions living now will never die.

    "leave it in Jehovahs hands"

    "wait on Jehovah"

    "we're just imperfect people serving a perfect God"

    I've always found "meat in due season," "whet one's appetite" and "food at the proper time" to be particularly nauseating.
