I am at the assembly and the last speaker of the day is doing some boring and cliché talk about trusting in Jehovah and not being anxious and stuff. Then he starts into this story about this 11 year old boy named Nigel who has cancer and is going to have a court ordered blood transfusion.
I am getting up to leave because I am thinking he is going to start into some story about he managed to get out of it and died for Jehovah or something like that.
The speaker never finishes the story about what finally happened.
Now I am thinking
He just made it up because he lies like all Elders do.
That the child died ( but the watchtower never misses an opportunity to glorify a martyr. )
That the child received the blood transfusion and it saved his life. Of course you can’t tell anyone that.
But lets just say it was number three. What is the lesson we are suppose we from that ??
That it is better to live in a country where the watchtower is over ruled by the government.
Anyone ever hear anything about this story ?
It just seems odd. Just one of those moments you can really see the devil making fun of the rank and file.
BTW- 5000 in attendance
