I keep going over in my mind, the way they formulated their presentation of the need for an organization. When I told her that we had not finished covering the topic of the slave, and she said let's put it aside for now... I'm not sure I can let her get away with that.
Their only evidence that the JW's are in charge of giving food at the proper time, was that they are the only ones teaching the truth. So apparently, we would need to prove that there is something they are teaching that is not true, in order to prove they are not teaching the truth (and can not fill the role of the faithful slave).
Since she seems to have exhausted her evidence for the FDS teaching, I'm considering asking her to explain the other slaves and parables mentioned right after the faithful slave. In Matthew 24:45-51, Jesus talks about his servants. The faithful one is good and feeds people when they need it. The evil one declares that the master is not coming, and starts whipping the other slaves... WHO is that referring to?
There is the parable of the 10 virgins, followed by the parable of the talents. In this example, 3 different slaves (or servants) are mentioned. Who today, apparently represents these servants? If these are merely parables or examples, then why would the faithful vs. evil slave example be a prophecy?
Regarding the CHANGES to the truth, they discarded this as evidence of anything other than their obedience.
Miss W: "There IS a scripture that tells us the light will get brighter in the time of the end." (A scripture? I really hate cherry-picking verses... especially if you're basing an entire religion on it, and then punishing anyone who will not comply and shift their entire belief at your whim).
I told her how my mother was confused by the changes made last fall. Miss K said, "It would be better if they didn't go back and forth in the articles, talking about what we previously thought to be true, and then explaining why we have new understanding and are changing what we believe to be true. It would be much clearer, if they just told us what we know NOW to be true, and not confuse people by explaining why we are making changes. Especially for new ones, it is hard to follow, when the information is presented in the way they did." This comment was very close to what my brother in law said to me, when I was asking him about that article in July Watchtower 2013.
I asked my sister (back in the fall), what she thought of the changes. She looked blankly at me for about 20 seconds before saying, "It made sense?" (wow)
Then my brother in law said, "I wish they wouldn't spend so much time telling us what they used to believe. Just tell us what we believe today, and let's move forward." (WOW again).
The changes and false prophecies are really the reason that we did not continue our bible study, and why we decided to stop lying to the people at the KH. We could not attend meetings and pretend we were going to believe them anymore.
